Children With Others Challenge

Though there are not many fics which feature characters having kids with others, the ones hosted here at TNF get a lot of visitors, so the interest in them is definitely there. I'm sure those readers would like to read more fics of this the one you're about to write!

- Give two characters not commonly paired a child. You may begin the fic during the pregnancy as long as the child is born halfway or less through.

- this child can have been born before, during or after the series.

- At least one parent should be a main character from the show. The other can be too, or a minor/cameo character on one or more episode.

- In fact you may pair any characters for procreational purposes except the following: Mulder with Scully; Doggett with Reyes; Jimmy with Yves.

Which isn't to say you can't pair them for romantic purposes, but that the biological mother of Mulder's child really isn't Scully and so on, but they could marry and she adopt the kid if you're inclined.

- This fic doesn't have to involve any other romance but the child you write about has to have been created the old fashioned way (insert ____'s tab A into ___'s slot B) or through deliberate medical intervention ( __ fills specimen cup for ___). No "kid shows up out of the blue" angle. Whichever method is fine for any characters.

- The characters can feel any way you like about the other parent, and have any motivation you want for creating the kid, from love to a drunken one night stand.

- MSR and DRR are okay to include in your fic! But other/romance for real is fine too.
