"Deep Throat" has all of the typical myth-arc elements: there’s a government cover-up; Mulder thinks there are aliens involved; Scully says there is no conclusive evidence–of anything. We get our first look at Mulder's mysterious government source, code-named "Deep Throat." And, despite her relative inexperience as a field agent, Dana Scully reveals herself to be a total bad-ass.

The Other Man by Jess M.
CONTENT WARNING: Jess chose not to warn but if you need warnings, PM me and I’ll provide one.
CLASSIFICATION: MSR, sorta kinda, set somewhere in Season 7. Any resemblance to Season 8, living or dead, is purely coincidental.
SUMMARY: Something’s wrong with Mulder and Scully goes nuts, a bit. Or does she? (mysterious look) This puppy is dark, dark, dark and gloomy. There’s some love in there. And some physics mumbo-jumbo. And a bunch of science I know nothing about. Thanks to Darla for the quote, and the lurve.

It began so innocently, the way it is with tragedies: the almost unrecognizable signs of disintegration beginning in the mundane. The flap of a butterfly's wings before the devastation of the hurricane that follows it. Chaos theory honed its abilities, Scully later thought, by practicing on their lives.

There are other good fics for "Deep Throat," but this is by far the most memorable, and the most disturbing. There are not many stories that made me look at canon, and wonder, what if it were true?

If you need a palate cleanser, click on the link to her Gossamer author page, and read "Beginning." It's funny and sexy and so different from "The Other Man" that it's hard to believe it was written by the same woman, let alone posted in the same month. Jess M. had talent and range. If you want to read her other fic, Jess M. also posted to Gossamer under "Jess" and "Jess Mabe."
