where did they say they would live together forever? both of them didn't shoot down the idea that the other finds someone else?
aside from the fact that mulder looked taken aback as hell and scully said “that’s never going to happen”…??
i read that conversation as both of them voicing their Biggest Fear (“what if you meet someone”) and the other saying Lol That’s Never Going to Happen in so many words (mulder: taken aback because he hasn’t met another human woman in 25 years, “What If You Do?” because he knows he never will but wants reassurance that she won’t either. scully: “that’s never going to happen” lol). they’re both insecure while also being emotionally immature idiots who don’t know how to communicate, which has been their MO for years and years. both of them fishing for reassurance combined with the “i’ll always be there"s and the “we’ll think of something….” that’s forever babbbbbyyy we love a love story.
also they proceeded to fuck twice 🥂🥂 clink clink bitch
