Bump in the Night and The Nursery Files' Halloween Crossover Challenge

As your humble archivist updated both Bump in The Night and The Nursery Files this year two things seemed to be lacking on both sites: crossovers and scary stories. So this year's Halloween challenge on each site would like challengers to attempt to rectify each issue.

Your challenge is to write an X-Files crossover fic that:

a. Is set during the week of Halloween, is mild to extremely scary, and,
b. Is a crossover with a scary movie, book, or TV show

Additional parameters:

If you wish to write your story for the The Nursery Files
c. You must include a baby, teen, or child character (or a pregnant character). This child character can be William, Emily, Matthew Scully, Luke Doggett or an X-Files character as a child OR child can be a cannon character from the other fandom, or an OC child "from" either fandom

If you wish to write your story for Bump in the Night
c. Your crossover fandom should be one that contains a: ghost, witch, vampire, shape shifter/werewolf, demon, zombie, bigfoot, or some sort of monster. (no aliens)

So, if you want to write a fic with just adults, include one of the scary beings that are featured on Bump in the Night, and if you write a fic with a child character it doesn't need to be any particular sort of scary (ftr, aliens are okay for Nursery Files version of the challenge)

Fandom Suggestions

Whatever fandom you'd like to crossover is fine as long as you fulfill whichever version of requirement C you need to, but in case you're having trouble thinking of a fandom to introduce some X-Files characters to, consider one of the following - even reading the list might make you think "what about ___??" and there's your crossover fandom!
