ROSE REVIEWS… THE X-FILES - S1.E10 FALLEN ANGEL

1.9. Space —————————————  1.11 Eve >>

It’s been kind of a crappy month/week/whatever but to bring you all some levity after my moaning I have *FINALLY* completed my latest review/recap. Here there be gifs. SO MANY gifs. I’d say I’m sorry but I’m really not. This ep is so riddled with boyband!Mulder and ridiculous effects it would be a crime not to gif the shit out of it. 

This one’s for Max Fenig’s hat. ONWARDS

I was impressed that the Budget Motel was still there and going strong. Thanks for looking!

Chapter IX

Another movie night is in the making.

Two bowls of popcorn - a bigger one buttered and salted, a smaller one plain - sit on the coffee table, a copy of one of the Indiana Jones movies - I can’t remember which one - is popped into the DVD player, the logs are crackling in the fireplace, and I’m sitting on the sofa with a blanket on my lap waiting for Scully to join me.

I hear her hopping down the stairs and she greets me fondling my neck.

Oh yeah, keep doing that, Scully!

“Sorry for letting you wait,” she apologizes and makes herself comfortable on the other side of the sofa. Without asking or hesitating she puts her feet on my lap and I can’t keep myself from rejoicing over the fact that this has become the most natural thing for her. I pull the blanket over her feet and tuck them in.

“Ready to start?” I ask, handing her her bowl of popcorn.

“Sure,” she answers. “I love that movie.”

I’m startled by the remark. How does she know she loves it? Tonight is meant to be a relaxing fun evening for us, no therapy session, so I don’t inquire but grab the remote and start the movie.

It’s the third part, ‘Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade’, and she surprises me again when she says even before the opening credits appear on the screen, “you know, I love Sean Connery in this one.”

She remembers Connery in that movie, but not me in her life.

It hurts.

The Signs As Vacations!

because fuck it.
Aries: A family trip to the beach, a rainbow of umbrellas and towels all the way down, the smell of sunscreen, burying your dad in the sand, shrieking and running from the waves

Taurus: A resort vacation in Mexico, packed with young honeymooners and energetic families. Overpriced drinks and half-understood conversations in Spanish, the awe of a sunrise over the water.

  • Aries: A family trip to the beach, a rainbow of umbrellas and towels all the way down, the smell of sunscreen, burying your dad in the sand, shrieking and running from the waves
  • Taurus: A resort vacation in Mexico, packed with young honeymooners and energetic families. Overpriced drinks and half-understood conversations in Spanish, the awe of a sunrise over the water.
  • Gemini: A budget motel stay with your parents, playing Pokémon on your Gameboy in the backseat, jumping on the squeaky beds, breakfast at Denny's, laying down in the backseat of the car
  • Cancer: A fishing trip in the open ocean, long lazy afternoons spent in comfortable silence, your arms tanning in the sun as the boat rocks in the water.
  • Leo: A rafting trip with your best friends, lazily drifting downstream, cracking open a cold can from the cooler, laughter echoing over the water
  • Virgo: A tough hiking trip, warm water tipped from the canteen, feeling your leg muscles burn as you force yourself up the steep path, sweat and panting and the triumph of standing at the top.
  • Libra: A skiing trip with your family, cupping your hands over your cold nose, feeling the ski lift sweep your legs out from under you, that first sip of hot cocoa after a long, cold day in the snow
  • Scorpio: A long summer road trip through the American Northwest, cruising through dark green forests and mysterious mountain passes, bare feet on the dashboard, sharing secrets and favorite songs
  • Sagittarius: A fast-paced backpacking trip across Europe, only a few dollars in your pocket, sleeping in hostels, grinning though the dust on your face
  • Capricorn: A Mediterranean cruise, licking olive juice off your fingers, dancing with a different stranger every night, white buildings shimmering on a hill
  • Aquarius: A summer camping trip, eating cereal out of little boxes, wading in the river, crawling into your tent, telling ghost stories while you make s'mores
  • Pisces: Joyfully driving your car off the Grand Coulee Dam
His Match

Note: This is a stand-alone story and does not take place within my other book tour one-shots. Aria is not pregnant in this, and Ezria do not live together yet.  

Aria and Ezra embarked on their promotional tour in mid-November, while also embarking on a new adventure as an actual couple. Their book had caught some early buzz and they’d manage to accumulate a few dozen thousand followers on social media, which was a big surprise for both of them. Today, they were back in Philadelphia. It was the same old routine they’d been following the past few weeks. They’d do a couple interviews in the morning, followed by a book signing in the afternoon.

Having a boyfriend named ‘Spooky’ Mulder means taking late night rides across the country to out of the way places to investigate strange happenings. Spending nights in low-budget motels and eating fast foods. But on the upside, you have someone who is passionate about his work, a good and loyal friend (and want a to be lover). A gentleman, one who holds doors open for you, places his hand in the middle of your back-always touching in some small way. Someone who will hold you when you need to be held and make you laugh to cheer you up. Yeah,  it wouldn’t be bad to have ‘Spooky’ Mulder as a boyfriend.

(they’re thousands of miles from home, traveling the backroads through rural south carolina and up into north carolina. there’s shitty motels on the way and somehow, they end up falling in love.) 

They drive down though California first and through Arizona and New Mexico, it takes a while for them to get through Texas (they keep stopping and going to shitty little tourist attractions) and by the time they get down through Louisiana, James turns to Adam and says, I want to take you to the Charleston Aquarium.

(Adam lets James drive then and Adam dozes in the passenger seat while James recounts stories from his childhood about the aquarium and Adam smiles because James sounds so damn happy and the happiness is infectious and god, Adam’s so in love.)
