Description(Does anyone write BtVS/X-Files crossover fanfic anymore?)

In BtVS Season's 7's "Conversations with Dead People" Dawn is attacked/harassed by something, possibly the First Evil, in a surrealistic scene that looks like it's straight out of a horror movie.

During the course of her personal horror flick the phrase "Mother's milk is red today" appears in red paint/blood on the wall.

Write a story (more than 1000 words or a series of drabbles that at least total that length) that involves Dawn in an X-Files investigation where that phrase appears.


- No character death [b]in the story[/b] please. (Backstory Scooby death is fine so if you kill off a Scooby, or Mulder, do it before the story starts.)

- Obviously post-Season 7 of BtVS - should probably be early X-Files, before the conspiracy stuff got out of hand.

- Don't make Dawn a 'Watcher' or a member of any reformed "Council of Watchers" - she should be a college student or some sort of junior research type in the FBI or some governmental CSI-like organization (small town coroners office okay).

- No slayers to the rescue (Slayer ex machina) [b]please[/b]! If you can't write a BtVS fic without a slayer appearing make them an apparent victim of whatever crime it was that Mulder and Scully are investigating - as long as it isn't Buffy, Faith, or even Kennedy.

- No Scooby bashing! Conflict between assorted stubborn Scooby personalities is fine. They didn't always get along.

Pairings/ship? While not necessary - Dawn/Mulder or Dawn/Scully or even Mulder/Scully are okay if they can be 'realistically' worked out. But Dawn/Scully/Mulder would be a bit too much.

- Dawn and Scully should be alive at the end of the story.
