You know what fucks me up? The fact that the rakshasa deliberately picked Gilmore. Rakshasas are sneaky beings. They’re criptic and seek vengeance and do things on purpose. They are twisted and know what makes the people they’re after tick. The rakshasa that came after Vax chose Gilmore. Rakshasas can read thoughts and know what will affect people. The rakshasa could have picked Vex, or Keyleth, or the twins’ mother, anyone. He picked Gilmore because it would hurt the most. That fucks me up.
With all of the fic that we read and recommend to you fine folks, we tend to get wrapped up with the Mulder and Scully we know and see in later seasons. We take their relationship, trust, and dynamic for granted, and forget where they came from and the journey they had to take to get there. Today’s rec is a wonderful blast from the past, taking place shortly after the Pilot. Back when all they really knew of each other was info from the rumor mill, and bullet points from their resumes. Back when the trust still had to be earned, and it was just the beginning of something beautiful.
