A horrific series of child molestations and murders has escalated. The director himself, under political pressure from the Justice Department has no choice but to assign the FBI's best profiler to the case, despite a promise he made ten years previously. But this series of killings has no resemblance to anything anyone in the FBI, including the X-files' Fox Mulder, has ever encountered before.

Parts of this are really tough to read, but it's an important contributor to the acute Profiler!Mulder-torture, and to a lesser degree, the Scully-torture.
This is an MSR, but Skinner also gets lucky. (Skinner feels like my dad, so I'd rather not know about what he does in his spare time, but this wasn't gagworthy at all 😀 Maybe the other horrors made it all pale in comparison.)
I spent 6 days camping in a spectacular World Heritage area, and this is what I read. Go figure. Needless to say I took a couple of breaks, and I had to read a lot of PWP afterwards to recover. Enjoy 😉
I'm very happy to report that I've just turned up Spider's original artwork for this fic, which I've now added below. I was also surprised to discover that she lived in the neighbouring town to me back in the day. I feel like I came within reach of basking in some of Sonny's limelight. 😀
