Scully and Mulder argue over the Ephesian case and come to a new understanding about their relationship.
This is a bit of an angstfest from Ryo Sen, who keeps us teetering on the edge. The ending is probably a little bit on the sappy side for my taste, but for those into more of a smutfest than an angstfest, I've also posted Jenna Tooms' "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy" for you. This one's set after "The Field Where I Died", an ep that needed a little fixing. It's also a reminder that Teena Mulder didn't actually have a name for a very long time meaning authors had to make one up, and Ann, being Samantha's middle name, was a popular choice. Mulder's mother is also rather out of character considering what we knew of her later, so put on your Sarah McLachlan CD and get your mind to shift back to early season 4...
PS There is a character death but it happened in canon too.
