I wanted to draw these original characters for a very long time!The reason why I couldn’t show them is because they come from a personal story of mine,ever since 2013. It just makes me feel embarrassed to talk what the story is about.But I can still draw them!
So,from left to right,top to bottom,there’s Meadow,Callan,Makeo,Adrian,Lucio and then Amber!
She tries not to think about the date as it approaches.
Three months. That’s how long she was missing, six years ago. And even though she believes the circumstances of Mulder’s disappearance are not the same as hers, even though she tells herself there is absolutely no reason to think the time frame is significant, she cannot help the way her eyes keep tracking to the calendar, the way her stomach twists constantly for a week beforehand, the way she jumps every time the phone rings.
The day comes, then passes. Then a week, then two.
But he doesn’t return.
On his birthday, she calls in sick because she cannot stop crying.
She blames the hormones; it’s the only explanation that makes sense. This isn’t like her at all. She wants to bury herself in work, the way she did when her father died, when Missy died, when Emily… but she cannot get enough traction to make it out of bed, let alone out of the apartment.
She holds it together on the phone just long enough to tell Skinner she’s not coming in. He probably guesses why anyway, but she hangs up before he has a chance to ask.
Thanksgiving feels hollow this year.
In truth, there is much she should be thankful for. A healthy pregnancy that wasn’t even supposed to be possible. The fact that, somewhat inexplicably, she is still showing so little that she’s able to continue hiding that pregnancy. She is able to work, and, more often than not, she is able to accept the reality of Mulder’s absence. To carry on despite it.
Still, her heart is just not in it when she wishes Doggett a “Happy Thanksgiving” as they leave work Wednesday afternoon, and the words sound disingenuous even to her own ear.
*Hey everyone! Sorry about the wait on this chapter, but thank you all for being so patient with me.
I know I said I was going to update BPT first, but honestly–I didn’t feel like it. So, you get an update for SSLL instead.
I also know you guys have noticed my absence. Sorry about that; I really haven’t been checking on here much. I haven’t read any of my IMs, either.
Long story short, my grandfather is terminal, and it’s been a strain trying to keep him out of a nursing home when it’s me and my mom against the rest of the family. I honestly haven’t felt like writing or chatting.
But I stayed up late last night playing Undertale on the PS4 (the plat is super easy), and I got my muse back for it, and then I got Home Healthcare set up for my grandfather to help lighten the load. So, aside from the fact that I’m going out-of-state Friday for a few days, you can expect my unannounced hiatus to be officially over next week, as long as everything with the Home Healthcare goes as planned.
Thanks again for being patient with me. I know it sucks waiting on an update for so long, but you guys are really the best, and I appreciate the fact that I didn’t get anyone pushing me to write. <3
