You wanted asks, you've got 'em Write me MSR - family holiday (Scully family) bill hates Mulder trope. Never gets old.
You asked for it, you got it!
Also this got out of hand and I couldn’t stop writing it. I’m sorry. I’ve definitely had to put a Keep Reading insert in because it’s so damn long, but it opens on my computer and on an internet page on my phone. Here’s hoping it works for you. Also I can’t believe I’m writing about Christmas in July.
This contains spoilers for HTGSC, Emily and the cancer arc. @2momsmakearight I think this is for you!
Mulder jolted awake, his heart pounding as he opened his
eyes and took in his surroundings. He’d fallen asleep sitting upright on the
sofa, which explained the kink in his neck and dull ache in his back. He was
getting too old for this. As he came to his senses, memories of the previous
evening came flooding back. Luring Scully out to the haunted house to go
ghostbusting with him on Christmas Eve; saying goodnight to her before they
both got into their respective cars to drive home, thinking that would be the
last he saw of her until after the holiday; his partner turning up on his
doorstep a few hours later, unable to sleep and wanting company; the two of
them exchanging gifts on the couch, talking for what felt like hours until
Scully nodded off. As her head gravitated towards Mulder’s shoulder he watched
her sleep until finally tiredness overcame him and he joined her in slumber. Only
now he was awake, and Scully was nowhere to be seen. He tried not to be too
disappointed that she’d left without saying goodbye, but then he cast his mind
back to the previous evening, when she’d explained she was going to have an
early start at her mom’s house on Christmas morning. He counted himself lucky
she even agreed to spend Christmas Eve with him, even if he did have to hide
her car keys to convince her to do so.
Trinity:My current project/baby is a casefile set post IWTB/Pre-The Fall and features Scully and Stella Gibson collaborating on a case where Blanche DuBois is the primary witness. Canon-compliant, character work that people seem to really like so… huzzah!More info/Part 1 here
That’s disgusting and wrong, I don’t even get…why would – I never…. It’s none of your - You have the nerve, the audacity – Scully is my partner, technically, and she is terrible face-wise, and how, how do I know, frankly, that you’re not the one that wants to be with her for eternity? Maybe you are. Maybe you’re trying to throw me off. Hmm, check and mate. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE WHO DO I CALL
How the Ghosts Stole Christmas (6x08) …I don’t know why, but this scene makes me think of something, how i missed this detail the first time i’ve watched this episode. Just look how they go down the ladder, Mulder went down forward while Scully doin’ backwards. just wonderin’…
I FORGOT HOW GOOD THIS EPISODE IS. I ALSO FORGOT HOW THE END IS EXACTLY LIKE FANFIC. (For srs. CC did his research on MSR fluff.) It is absolutely one of those that stands up to a second viewing, and I think it might just be my favorite Christmas story ever. I SHALL MAKE IT A CHRISTMAS TRADITION AND FORCE MY SISTER’S FUTURE CHILDREN TO WATCH IT. OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
