Why This Must Be Read: This is an unfinished sequel to "A Familiar Heart," an X-Files alternative universe fic already recommended here. Like that one, this story is set in an alternative universe in the late 1940s after World War II. Assume that Fox Mulder had a brother named Sam instead of a sister named Samantha and that he was killed in action during the war and became Fox's guardian angel instead of being abducted by walk-ins/aliens/whatever. In the first chapter he's back as a flesh and blood, very confused guy who doesn't remember what happened to him or why he seems to have certain powers or a strange fellow is stalking him. He does remember that he loves baseball and the ladies and he's very interested in Dana Scully's cousin Emma. Mulder and Scully are married in this one and Mulder works for the FBI in "The X-Files." They are supporting characters. There's a lot of great period detail and language, the characters are likeable and the whole story is just a lot of fun.
