Why This Must Be Read: This story is immediately post-cancer arc and it is incredible. It shows Scully's struggle to come to terms with what's happened and accept that she can, and should, live a full life. It also shows Mulder's struggle to accept that she's going to live and wants to keep fighting. It is a wonderful display of that delicious UST and understanding between the two and has some laugh-out-loud moments followed by the inevitable 'Oh, Mulder' and 'You tell 'im, Scully!' moments that I lived for when watching the show.
