Realised Desires

The final part of my little trilogy. As a new txf writer, I’d like to thank each and every one of you who has liked, reblogged or commented. Your support has been overwhelming and I love you all. 

Special thanks to my own little Mulder whom I adore. 

Part One | Forgotten Secrets 

Part Two | Remembered Promises 

Prompt: Things that made me feel real | MSR fluff. 

Scully glanced up at Mulder with an eyebrow quirked as he patted down his jacket for his car keys.

“Don’t tell me you’ve finished already?” she asked, her words somewhere between dubious and mocking. Mulder smiled at her and nodded once, a smug grin on his face. He’d spent the day powering through the paperwork that he always somehow allowed to build up. Friday evenings were usually reserved for working through it with whatever food he could get delivered and then making his way home via Scully’s place, but tonight was different. He needed to get everything done so he could leave as early as possible. Finishing touches needed to be made.

I skipped my weightlifting class today to get my hair cut before work. It’s this really old barbershop that prides itself on being a place for “real” men and not hipsters. I needed a haircut and they were in walking distance to my work, so I went.

I walked in and a guy asked me, “you here for a haircut?” And I said yes, in a -trying to be confident but I’m nervous as hell- kind of way. I put down my jacket and hopped in the chair and told the guy my guards. I said, “I’m not going to walk out of here with a pixie cut, right?” And he laughed. And then we were silent as I held my breath for the 30 minutes he spent on my hair. The other guys in the chairs had their attention split between FOX News on the little tv and girls walking by outside. I was mostly cringing internally in the tension between truly enjoying myself and being terrified.

He finished up and ripped off the white paper from my neck and I went on with my day.

So, we got TWO consecutive selfies right before the start of the west coast promo season as a warning, and his whole promo revolved around the kid.

Then he described ‘traditional, sit around a cake and sing happy birthday’, about what the birthday would be like, and that’s EXACTLY what we had, a two seconds, muted video exactly what he described.

Now we have two consecutive selfies as well, and it’s gearing up to me more of the same. Hm. Okay.
