Scully’s need for control takes her and Mulder into discovering the BDSM lifestyle. Okay, I was reluctant at first… but it was in-character, and so fucking hot. Set post-Orison. Some parts are a little meh and may take some effort to suspend disbelief but for the most part, I was amazed by how much this could work. The author did a great job in researching and informing the reader.
MY FAVORITE STORY. Don’t let the title fool you, this story is hardly as sappy as it may seem. It’s tragically beautiful and I would pay good money to see this made into a miniseries. I WILL NEVER SHUT UP ABOUT PRUFROCK’S LOVE. You have to read it. Post-William, and it veers… It’s been 12 years since she’s seen him. ugh. I’m haunted by this story. Basically EVERYTHING she writes is amazing. Just read everything.
Now that my opinion of AU has been broadened by BBWL, someone suggested I read Eleventh Hour, and I’m glad I did. What a journey. Mulder has to go back in time to save Scully from her fate…but will he want to return to present?
Okay, basically this story CONSUMED my soul before the revival. It’s RIDICULOUSLY long in the best way possible. Covering everything from the beginning of Season 8 to IWTB and beyond, this story shows us what CC did not. It explains her pregnancy, what happened to Mulder while he was away and what they did on the run. Buckle your seat belts; it’s a long read, but well worth it.
I WILL NEVER SHUT UP ABOUT MESABI FERRUM. It is amazing. Between this and Machines of Freedom, CC had all of the ammo he needed for Seasons 10-11. William, mytharc, MSR, viruses, Doggett/Reyes and others… ONE OF MY TOP FIVE FAVORITES.
They say that we should love our self first before other people learn to love us. but it’s not as easy as it seems. sometimes, we need someone to accept us and love us first. then, we would learn to see ourselves through that person’s eyes and learn to love our self…
