Many years ago, I wrote a Skinner/Mulder, master/slave serial in The X Files fandom. It was called 24/7, and was one of my most well-known stories at the time. It still gets more hits than most of the other stories on my site. When I decided to write a Master/slave story for Gibbs and Tony, I thought it might be nice to revisit Skinner and Mulder to find out where they’re at now. However, this is a Gibbs/DiNozzo story all the way. Walter and Fox will just be dropping by occasionally. You don’t need to be familiar with The X Files or 24/7 to read this story. If, however, you are interested in the journey Walter and Fox went on, you can find it here. I should warn you that it’s 600,000 words long though, before you go and read ;-). It’s serialised so can be read in individual chapters which is less daunting.
WARNING: This story is a somewhat bonkers, kinky soap opera with lots of sex and angst.It’s clearly a TOTAL fantasy, and is intentionally “big” in tone, style and characterisation. This story is NOT a “how-to” guide to BDSM. I do not enter into discussions about why people enjoy BDSM activities. If you want to know more, please visit sites like www.bondage.com and www.fetlife.com. If you don’t like lifestyle BDSM stories, or you don’t like the way *I* write lifestyle BDSM stories, then don’t read it. If you do like them, then slip into your leather harness and let’s get started :-).
