Disclaimer: If they had belonged to me the show would have gone for at least another year. Obviously, they don't. ;P
Archive: I'll take care of MiJ, SWLD, XFMU, Gossamer and Ephemeral. Anybody else, just ask! :)
Summary: "As much as it breaks my heart to see Mulder cry, I almost wish he would do just that now. At least it would prove to me that he is really in there - that the events of the last two years haven't sent him down the proverbial rabbit hole never to return."
Dedication: To Lisa, who puts up with all my half-ass, may-never-actually-be-finished stories even if they are in a genre she's not particularly a fan of. And to all of those readers out there who put up with me even though I straddle just about every fence in the fandom. :)
Author's Notes: This is my version of therapy. Please don't flame me.
Please note that Doggett and Reyes will have minor roles in this story and I REFUSE to treat these characters with anything less than complete respect. I can't stand it when certain fans (and you know who you are) insist on slamming them just because Chris Carter dared to *create* them. If you already hate me for even *mentioning* them, then please take your thumb out of your mouth and click on the "back" button. Thank you.
