Take Me Out Halloween Challenge

Your challenge is to send a pair/group of siblings (at least one of them under the age of 18) out to enjoy a Halloween-themed activity together without Mom or Dad.

Think trick or treating, think haunted house attractions and zombie walks and hay rides, think Halloween parties, think corn mazes, think having fortunes told, or think of activities that maybe their parents wouldn’t approve of if they knew about them like doing a little ghostbusting at the neighborhood’s allegedly haunted house or looking for a local witch.

The story can be set whenever you like: pre-XF, canon, or post-canon, and can contain an unlimited number of canon and original X-Files characters.

Please submit your story or the link to it to or post here on The Nursery Files’ submissions Tumblr by 9 a.m. on November 8th
