Ahab's Alive!

Or at least he is in fanfiction. We never got to know Scully's dad except in Beyond the Sea, but that's never stopped fanfic writers. Here you will find stories that either take place before the episode or go off into their own alternate universe where Scully's Ahab never died. If you know of any stories like these that deserve a home here, let me know and I'll add them into the site.

Be aware that a lot of these stories are really old so the email addresses listed on them may not work. If any author finds a fic here that they don't want to have included on the site, please email me and we'll discuss it. If a story is part of a series, only the part with Bill Scully Sr. may be housed here. I've tried to keep series fics together, but be sure to check out the headers before you start reading if you don't like to be left confused or hanging.
