I love this! Your portrayal of their relationship is absolutely perfect!

I loved your depiction of their "darkness". As a desperate shipper I hoped they would have found a way out, would have somehow arranged their lives in a better way. The movie left me quite cold and sad as they were so tired and powerless in front of their past. Thank you for the story!

Amazing story! It's been a long time, but I need an ending! Please!

I like this story. M&S back again... ah doesn't that just make my heart sing. I really miss this series. And Gossamer's not down. I still go there to check out the stories. I'm trying to slowly download and save all my favorites before it does disappear.

I just read this story for the first time and think it's wonderful. I love how you've mixed present day Mulder and Scully in with past story lines and the 'romance' is great.
| Lily Bart chapter 1 . 8/15/2008
WOW! Totally sexy, but what I love most is the was you describe all of the things they are noticing about each other and the detail you put into them reading each other. It makes it seem so real and so Mulder and Scully and allows the reader to really buy into their close relationship. ;-)

I just found way to this story and have to say that I love it. I love how you've taken the speacial focus on their relationship in the latest movie and moved it forward while they still deal with those "dark" parts of their lives.
Great story, and I hope you are inspired to write more. Great work!

loving this story so far! it is a great post-IWTB character introspective and interaction. It is great how you wrote of their home life, the inner demons they still fight and how they each help the other in fighting them. I also love how you took them on a trip to Martha's Vineyard as they reminisce on happier times. Additionally, its nice how you don't make every memory a happy one but I feel that they can appreciate the happier moments more b/c of the painful times they have been through, and you brought that out beautifully. I hope you continue this story further!

god...loved this chapter...the house sounds beautiful but so sad...and poor Mulder having to deal with all of the memories and remain sane...
I always loved Modell's episodes...awesome..
now I must run and watch every episode that you're mentioning to refresh my memory...
I'm having so much fun with this...
and I loved the movie...not what I expected...but I cheered when all of them appeared on the screen..
such sweet and wonderful memories...

Sorry I did not review before now...bank holiday weekend here and it was just all go...Went to see the X-Files Movie too...I really enjoyed it...It was definitely different to what we normally saw but it was good...
Getting back to this story...you reminded me of what a cold fish Teena Mulder was...We never saw any real emotion from her in the series...She had a sad enough life too, with Samantha being taken and her marriage failing...It was sweet how Mulder said 'if he had known that the two times she had shown him affection were to be the only two times'...that was bitter sweet and sad...
Connie was a charm...the type of lady you want looking after things for you but not someone you could spend any major time with...
Looking forward to the next chapter...

I have really enjoyed your story so far; the plot is easy to follow and I particularly appreciate the attention to detail in your style of writing, that and a smooth-flowing story makes for a really great read, especially since I'm still awaiting the arrival of the new film to my little English town.
Hope to see some new chapters soon!

They are the most laid back sexy two people out there. Awesome scene in the tub. I like that left him without an orgasm because all couples do not always orgasm together. Well done. Once again I'm missing back ground but I kind of get the idea of what happened to him. It sounds like an episode i should watch. Whne in the series did they finally get together? I think I'm going to have to try and watch more of them because there seems to be a lot of history there. Still, this story is beautiful on it's own and I'm enjoying this time and place that you've created for them. I'll try to keep up. Stellar job, keep writing! Jaed xo

Okay so I reviewed in reverse. In the last chapter I know it was her story not his. I was just ahead of myself from reading all the chapter in a row. I don't know what happened when she went missing so I know that I'm missing a piece here but I love that it was her absence that brought the realization to him.
On another note, what is it about coffee or tea with pie that brings so many people together? It's such a tradition and I think there must be something in the warm sweet combination that allows people to relax and connect. I don't know what it si for sure but there is something about that combination that leads people into deep discussions, true confessiond and real love. Must be the pie. Great chapter, beautifully written. Looking forward to more. Keep writing! Jaed xo
