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.
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.
Just left a popular budget chain motel to work for a very upscale hotel, I am so nervous about all the changes I will have to endure, and concerned I won’t be able to keep up. Those of you working at high end places can you give me some tips?
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.
killems roadtrip au with shitty motels okay. <3 love u too <333
(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.)
