Special rec: 8/31
Author’s Summary: While the agents are investigating a possible UFO sighting in Colorado, Mulder makes a decision about his priorities.

Why This Must Be Read: This takes place early in the cancer-arc of the show. Mulder is trying to cope with Scully’s cancer just as she’s trying to cope with it. The dialogue is spot-on and intelligent and while the UST is never resolved, the fact that these two love, care and respect each other is wonderfully portrayed. This story definitely falls within Challenge 58! Also, the link uses the wayback machine, so let me know if you have any trouble!

Why This Must Be Read: there’s nothing better than Stefan and Caroline hunting for bunnies together while Caroline channels Anya Jenkins’ fear of rabbits. This story brings to life the dynamics between those two characters beautifully.
