Why This Must Be Read:
He's sitting on the hotel bed and she's rooting through his mini-bar and it's just the two of them, without the buffer of Mulder and Scully, and there aren't any cameras or carpets or kids, and even though he's known her for most of his adult life, he's spent so little time with her like this.
The second story is one I had the good fortune to receive as a gift. Although the author expressed some concern, I think this story might be better than what I asked for. It's about Gillian's surprise appearance at opening night of David's off-Broadway play, "The Break of Noon." It's a sensitive, romantic and emotionally resonant portrayal of their complicated professional and personal relationship, and it still fits my idea of the characters pretty damn well. I love it (so much!) and I think you will, too.
