This week's featured article

Iolokus is a seven part X-Files fan fiction series by RivkaT and MustangSally. The work, which is a grim AU spin on the show's mytharc, may be one (if not the) most controversial fan fictions in Philedom (see Fan reaction) because of the bleak characterization of Mulder, Scully and their relationship in the stories. It's considered a Fandom Classic by many X-Philes.

The first part of the series was published in January 1998. In 2013 and 2014, RivkaT explained that it was "written from a place of deep anger about what Scully went through," and that "This story was written in a fury of anger on her behalf, and a conviction that she too was entitled to be angry. I wish the show had let her be."
