Why This Must Be Read: The X-Files fandom was a goldmine for sharing-a-bed fics - the number of almost sold out hotels that Scully and Mulder end up at in fanfic is kind of astonishing, really. I love this particular story for being such a smart, subtle subversion of the trope (the summary for this story is A Mulder and Scully in bed story which does not end in sex or professions of undying love, which tells you all you need to know right there), while also playing it delightfully straight. A short, wonderful little gem of a story.

Ooh, I really loved that - thank you! Sharing a bed is one of my favourite tropes, and this one was done perfectly! :)

It's just about perfect, isn't it? I especially like how it's a story that taps into the irritation and annoyance between them as well as the other things we love and see in their relationship - the trust, the attraction, etc.

Can you believe that was a "draft"?

Ha, yeah, I know? I wish my drafts were like this.
