i wish to tell her i am sorry. i wish to take this cup from her hands. i wish for things that i can never have, and in that, i think perhaps i am closer to them than i ever have been. and still a billion light-years away.
Okay, in order to avoid confusion, let me explain a little bit about the graphic novels, what the hell is happening in each one, and why this Audible adaptation is going to be so awesome (in my humble opinion).
They are making the adaptation from The X-Files Season 10, written by Joe Harris. That’s this series, published by IDW in 2013, which takes place sometime after IWTB. That’s all I’m going to say about a timeline, because when it was first published, the actual Revival (Season 10 of the television series) wasn’t even being talked about, so IWTB is our only frame of reference in terms of when these events happened. In it, Mulder and Scully are still living under assumed names, but they’re living together. Scully is a doctor, Mulder is still kind of a homebody, and then something happens that brings them back into the search for the Truth. Quite a few of our old favorite monsters, villains, and secondary characters make a comeback, including the Flukeman, the Peacocks, the Long Gunmen, and Gibson Praise. And again, let me stress…Mulder and Scully are STILL TOGETHER ROMANTICALLY:
The above series is NOT to be confused with The X-Files, which is also written by Joe Harris and was published by IDW in 2016.

This is a story about Revival-era Mulder and Scully, and encompasses the whole breakup and all that jazz, and THIS is the series that Scully has started to see someone else:
