The Fifth Scully Challenge

Maggie Scully has four children: Dana, Bill Jr., Melissa and Charlie. But what if there was a fifth Scully sibling?

Your challenge:

Give Scully a youngest sibling who is still under the age of 20. This sibling can be biological or adopted.

  • Did Maggie find out she was expecting a change of life baby just after her husband died? Was she kidnapped and experimented too on when Duane Barry made his infamous exchange? Did she adopt a waif related to one of her daughter's cases, or inherit guardianship of one of her grandchildren? Something else entirely? You tell us.
  • You can set your story when the fifth Scully joins the family, or start the story from the assumption that the child came along sometime in the past (in other words, if you'd like to write a story about Scully teaching her little sister to drive and needing to bring her to a crime scene, you can begin there rather than write about the sixteen years before)
