i also married an alien

do you ever look at shows like bones and castle, where the distinctly mulder/scully-influenced work-colleagues-turned-otps are happily married with children or whatever by now

… and then back at x-files

… where it’s been twenty three years

… and the show still doesn’t want to admit too freely that mulder and scully are in love or be so bold as to show us some casual kissing
