Msr 15, 35, 72! I'd love to see how you do this! X
Lovely anon, this can be read as a stand alone or a companion piece to this promptand this one. It’s Mulder, Scully and William and they’re all happy and waiting for baby No.2. Sorry, I’m all about the fluff these days.
“I’d kill for a
coffee…literally.” + “Take your medicine.” + “Just smile, I really need to see
you smile right now.”
It’s almost over, finally.
38 weeks, two more to go,
Mulder muses while picking up one of William’s toys. His son, sitting on the
living room floor, is singing one of his favorite songs. Or at least he’s
trying to. Mulder fears no one but him would even recognize it. Watching his
young son, so immersed in his own little world, he falls in love with him a
little bit more. If that’s at all possible.
“Is the baby coming today,
daddy?” William holds up his pudgy arms when he sees his father approach
him. Mulder picks him up and plants him on the couch next to him. As much as
patience is a virtue, his son doesn’t have any to speak of. Not that Mulder can
blame him; he can’t wait for the birth of their second child either.
“Hm, no, Buddy. The baby
needs to stay inside your mom’s belly a while longer.” Disappointment
flashes on the boy’s face.
“But,” Mulder tips
Will’s chin up, “how about we go out for some ice cream while we’re
waiting?” His son squeals in excitement, jumping up and down on the couch.
He’s lucky Scully isn’t home; neither of them is allowed to jump on the
furniture. Scully explicitly gave that speech to both of them after they were
caught using the bed as a trampoline.
Will is still furiously jumping
up and down when the front door opens. Startled, Will changes course mid-air
and lands right in Mulder’s lap. On very sensitive equipment. He yelps loudly,
causing his son to turn around too quickly, his arms still in the air. A tiny,
yet very sharp elbow lands right in his nose.
“Did I hurt you,
daddy?” Will plumps down on his lap and puts both his hands on Mulder’s
cheeks, staring at him intently.
“I’m fine, Buddy.”
“Mommy, daddy is
“I really can’t leave the
two of you alone.” Scully lets her purse fall right at the door and waddles
over as quickly as possible, her face red and sweaty, and Mulder would
apologize if his nose wasn’t throbbing so badly. Will watches as his mother
carefully examines Mulder’s nose.
“It’s not broken,”
she decides, “We just need to stop the bleeding.”
“Does it hurt, daddy? What
about the ice cream?” Will carefully puts his index finger on his father’s
nose, nudging it carefully.
“Ice cream?” Scully
asks, gently tipping Mulder’s head forwards and pinching his nose shut.
“Daddy said ice cream!
Cause no baby today.” Will informs Scully with a huge grin. She turns to
look at Mulder, who can neither talk nor nod.
“Mulder, I need you to
pinch your nose like this.”
“I can do it!”
William exclaims happily.
“Baby, you can help me in
the kitchen.” The boy is immediately convinced and jumps off his father’s
lap. Mulder winces.
“I told you: no jumping on
the furniture, Mulder.” Scully whispers and leaves a kiss on his cheek.
Mulder pinches his nose just like Scully showed him and thinks he should have asked
for her to bring ice for another part of his anatomy, too. It’s a good thing
she’s pregnant already. He’s currently not sure his equipment is still working
“Daddy, I bring you
medicine.” William announces, holding the ice pack with both hands like a
“Put it on his nose,
Will.” Scully tells him and he nods. Will climbs up the couch and right back
into Mulder’s lap. He puts the ice pack on his nose, his little tongue sticking
put in concentration, and Mulder sighs in relief. His son observes him
curiously, trying to figure out if he’s doing it right.
“Great job, baby,”
Will beams at Mulder upon hearing Scully’s praise. “Now, Mulder open up
for us.” Scully is way too happy about his discomfort, he finds. Opening
his mouth sounds so easy in theory, but Will is taking his job as ice pack
“Come on, Mulder.”
“Take your medicine.”
Will joins in, sounding eerily like his mother already. Finally two pills that
Mulder doesn’t recognize pass his lips and he tries to swallow them dry, almost
choking. Scully puts a glass to his lips and carefully tips his head backwards.
“You did good.” His
son pats his cheek, happy with himself. “Now can we have ice cream… please?”
“I think your dad needs
some rest,” Mulder knows that it’s Scully who need to rest and so he nods
at Will, who looks disappointed, “Maybe tomorrow.”
“No baby and no ice
cream,” Will sighs, “Today is not a good day for Will.” He
shuffles off, leaving Mulder and Scully alone for the moment.
“Hi.” He tells her
and leans forward for a kiss, but Scully leans away from him.
“Pinch your nose,
Mulder.” He does as he’s told.
“You’re home early.
Where’s your mother?” Just because he’s pinching his nose, doesn’t mean he
can’t talk. No matter how nasal and stupid he sounds. Scully had been happy to
go see her mother this morning. Being heavily pregnant in August, right during
a heat wave was not fun – for any of them. Least of all for Scully, though.
“She dropped me off.”
Her snappy response is all he needs to know. Maggie Scully might be one of the
most patient people Mulder has ever met, but her daughter has not been herself
those last few days.
“Did you have fun?” He
regrets the question as soon as it’s out. If only he would catch a hint every
once in a while, keep his mouth shut, and accept her simple answers. But no,
“Oh, Mulder!” Scully
slaps his shoulder and he’s certain she didn’t mean to hurt him. Except she
sometimes has no idea how strong she really is. “You know I love you,
right?” Those words are not at all what he expected, especially after her
recent outburst, and so he’s taken aback. He finds his words right before she
hits him again.
“Of course I do, Scully. I
love you, too, you know that.”
“I’m so tired,
Mulder.” Her head lands on his shoulder, the same one she just violated,
and it’s like a band-aid on the sore spot.
“Of being pregnant?”
“No, I mean yes. It’s just
too hot and my body looks everything but.” She leans against him, feeling
heavy and sweaty, but he puts his arm around her anyway, drawing her even
closer. He puts his hand on her belly, stroking it softly.
“Your body is very hot,
“And,” she completely
ignores his comment, “I’d kill for a coffee…literally.”
“Hey, you need me once two
of our offspring are running around here.”
“I already need you with
the one.” Scully yawns, cuddling into his side and getting more
“I could take Will to have
ice cream. Give you some time to yourself.”
“And my bladder.” If
their child would stop playing football with it, maybe she could get some
actual rest. Getting up from the couch is a two person job these days, but just
as Mulder is about to help her, she stops and freezes.
“Scully? Is that – did your
- did your water just break? Scully, your water just broke!” Mulder is on
his feet and his ice pack falls to the ground, momentarily forgotten.
“What do you need? Where
is your suitcase? We’re prepared, we are, I know it.” He’s running in
circles around Scully like a squirrel.
“Mulder, stop,” she tells
him quietly, holding her stomach, “We have time.” He stares at her,
open-mouthed and wide-eyed. “Get the suitcase from upstairs, take Will and
I’ll call my mom from the car.”
“Is that all?” Mulder
is out of breath; his nose throbs painfully, but there’s no time to think right
now. The baby! His mind screams. This time he’ll be there for every single
moment. He’ll get his hand crushed, he’ll get yelled at and then he’ll hold his
newborn child. He’ll be by Scully’s side for every excruciating second. Mulder
already feels woefully inadequate when he sees her sweaty, tired face. This is
only the beginning and he knows how strong Scully is, knows it with every fiber
of his being, but if only he could do something. Something to help her.
“Do you need anything else?” He’s already at the
stairs, ready to sprint, ready to get them on the way.
“Just smile,” she tells him, panting, “I
really need to see you smile right now.” That he can do, he thinks. He flashes a
huge smile, full of teeth and wrinkles, and when he hears her chuckle, he sprints
upstairs to get them ready. To have another baby.
I wrote this for ursulaismymiddlename as a thank you for helping me figure out this world of Tumblr and for the fun talks we’ve had over the last few days!
Her request: Okay, so how about Peter Quill loves to watch you dance around his ship in just your underwear and one of his old shirts. Sometimes, he can’t keep his hands off of you *wink*
I might be the only one silly enough to wonder how the Guardians would wash their clothes in space, after seeing the movie and especially after getting this request, but there you have it. I hope you’ll enjoy reading this. Let me know what you think!

The title and the lyrics are from the song ‘Shut up and dance with me’ by Walk the Moon!
over the weekend i went rock climbing for the first time and got way too hype; as a result, i haven’t been able to draw properly for the last few days so getting these done was…fun. i am very enamoured by the idea of sam + josh being climbing buddies!!
(eventually they get chris to come and josh spends more time laughing than climbing bc he’s the worst bf ever)
Cassian was playing with my hair, his finger brushing lightly against my skin. It felt heavenly compared to the pounding that was going on behind my eyes. I opened them slowly, the sun blinding me and rolling my stomach. I wanted to puke, but I fought the urge. I hated getting sick.
“Good morning sleeping beauty,” his voice was full of humor and I knew when I looked at him he would be smiling, “how’s the head?”
I winced, refusing to open my eyes just yet. I groaned and then moved further under the blankets, “why are you so loud?”
He laughed. It echoed across my skull. He sounded like he was right there next to my ear. Speaking into a bull horn. I winced as he ran his fingers lightly down the small of my back, “I’m whispering sweetheart. Are you okay?”
I finally opened my eyes. The sun shining in through the blinds killed me. Still I sat up and then I shrugged, “as good as I can be hungover,” I looked at him trying to block out the sun, “why are you in my bed?”
“You wanted me to sleep with you. You said you didn’t want to be alone.”
He bit his lip, as if he was unsure how I would react to finding him in my bed. I wasn’t upset, I was actually kind of relieved that he was here and no one else had stumbled into the room while I was passed out. Again I was thankful I had brought Cassian home with me. Especially since my sister had sprung Tomas and his invitation on me at the last second.
I blushed, “oh okay. As long as I um. Wanted you here. Some of the details are still a little hazy.”
He laughed, “I promise you nothing happened. Well actually you wanted to cuddle, but that’s it.”
Morning run! (My body ate all the carbs all weekend!) haha
It has been a crazy fun last few days! Gore was awesome! Saw two DBacks wins! Ate awesome food and just had a great time away! It is gonna be hard being back to reality, I wish I could vacation all the time! 😂
Where are you going for your roadtrip and how long are you going to be gone? I hope you have a lot of fun 😊
im in melbourne right now, and im going to mackay! im gonna be gone around uhhhhhhhhh a week and a half! :D it’s for my brother’s cricket (aussie sport) tournament, but i mostly go for the drive up there
My body legit tried to kill me.
😭I woke up feeling terrible five days ago and my sides, back, and abdomen were really hurting. My stomach was really distended and felt sore. Oh I was so tired too. So I kind of forced myself into a walk during the day. My right knee already being weak made any effort to run even harder and I gave up!
Come to my weekly weigh in and I ballooned (pretty literally) to 148 pounds. My body literally put on almost 15 pounds of water weight because it’s a jerk! 😢
But it made me hurt and it felt so bad and I’m so glad it stopped… whatever it was.
Buuut I’m back down to 137 today and I don’t feel like death! I even ran in the rain for almost four glorious miles today! Then walked three more.
Running in puddles will never not be fun!!
Hoping the last few pounds drops off over the next couple of days too.
But ugh maybe I should bring this up to a doctor? 🤷♀️
I am having the most absurd shiny luck. Shiny Cofagrigus is my favorite shiny, and my main reason for getting the Shiny Charm in Moon was because I really wanted one. I went back to Omega Ruby to try and breed a 6IV Yamask to use as the mom, figured I should do that in Omega Ruby since there’s a bunch of move tutor moves that I really like for Cofagrigus, so I could teach the mom some moves before sending her over and use her on my team as well, and maybe hatch a couple others to teach move tutor moves to try out as well. Weird mixed-attacking Cofagrigus with a Relaxed nature and Knock Off is fun!
Instead, after only about 70 eggs hatched over the last few days in Omega Ruby trying to get a perfect 6IV female Yamask, I just got this. At full odds, with no Shiny charm or Masuda Method. o_O
Um. Okay then!
Perfect IVs in all but speed, and a Relaxed nature. Guess I’m going to teach him some tutor moves then send him over to Moon! After I think of a name that isn’t “Wait what”, which was my first thoughts after realizing “Hey, wait, did that Yamask I just hatched have yellow eyes?”
Think I’m going to hunt for a Bold natured shiny Cofagrigus in Moon as well, partially because I was planning this Big Shiny Hunt with Masuda Method and the Shiny Charm and still want to do it! I can have two shiny Cofagrigus. Along with the one I already have, the 6IV one I’m trying to get, and the 0 speed IV Relaxed one I hatched yesterday for Trick Room team stuff. Heck, I can just have an entire team of Cofagrigus.
*Confused yet happy shrug at playing Pokemon for ~20 years with my only non-event shiny being a wild Onix I found once, and then suddenly hatching two awesome shinies a week apart without purposefully looking for them*
Just wanted to give a shout out and thank you to everyone that came by our booth at Rose City Comic Con. It was an incredibly fun weekend
I’ve taken the last few days off to recover, but I’ll be back to daily updates and completing commissions starting tomorrow. Thank you all so much!
