This challenge is in response to another hard to fill request - fics with five or more kids. Fics with 3-4 kids are plentiful but more than that are scarce.


- Set any two XF characters up in domestic bliss.

- Give them at least five kids, biological and/or adopted (or more Emily-type kids), to raise. If adopted they can be kids from episodes, if you like, or original characters.

- Make one of the kids very young, two years or younger. The other kids can be any age you like through mid-teens.

- These kids are the offspring of X-Files characters, so instead of 100% fluff include some sort of "paranormal bouquet" in your fic's plot.
