The Marriage Series by Juliettt

A quick note on the Marriage Series: I began this series of stories with
"Epithalamion," which was originally intended to be a single story. It's a story
with a twist that, unfortunately, has lost a bit of its original impact since
its setting as the cornerstone of the Marriage Series rather gives away the
ending ahead of time. But no matter. I was asked to tell "what happened next,"
and I did, in "Wonders Wrought"--and "Waking," "On the Road," and "Watching the
Storm" soon followed. Because I seemed to have hit upon something in which a
segment of the X-Files fanfic public was interested, I have continued writing
All of this is really to explain that this series is being written out of
order, unfortunately. I just can't help it--I get an idea for a story that
occurs, say, two years into the marriage (like "Lullaby For a New Generation")
and then find myself writing one that happens much earlier (such as "The Last of
the Chambord" which I wrote after more than a dozen "later" ones). And so I hope
that you'll bear with me as I continue to add to this series.
Also please note that there are really two sub-series: the stories that occur
during the engagement and those during and after the wedding. For simplicity's
sake I'm calling all of these the Marriage series, both the Engagement and the
Marriage Stories. Also, some stories are thematic sequels to other stories which
do not appear in this series, although they may occur years after the events in
the other story. I'll label these as well (for an example, see "The Last of the

their engagement. I wrote this story after Jodi Kerper asked to write a story
set in this particular universe, called "Stepping Back." Her story occurs later
