First Christmas With You Challenge
This year's challenge is to write a fic about an X-Files character sharing a first Christmas with their child. Although we typically think of a "first Christmas" as the first one a child is alive, the important element here is that it's the first Christmas the character is sharing with this child no matter how many the child has already lived through.
Therefore there are multiple possibilities for how a "first" Christmas might come about, such as:
- Scully's first Christmas with William
These suggestions are not all-inclusive, so if you come up with another way a character would be spending the first Christmas with the baby or child, you're welcome to strike out on your own =)
Very Optional:* Combine this challenge with the elements of any other challenge on this site for entry in the Take Two Challenge
* You can write about more than one child's first Christmas, so if you'd like to write about a six months' pregnant Scully celebrating her 11-month-old's first Christmas with Mulder after discovering Emily's alive, being reunited with William and adopting the Van De Kamp's other child after their untimely deaths... well, we'd be really impressed ::grins::
* 500 words or more would be awesome, but not required since we don't believe in min/max word count requirements here.
Please submit your story or the link to it by December 24th. firstname.lastname@example.org
