Mulder and Scully travel to a small town in Missouri to investigate a series of deaths involving a faith healer. Along the way, questions are raised concerning their relationship and their feelings towards matters of the spirit. Winner of multiple 1996 Spooky awards.
I feel a bit dirty after posting so much smut during my recent brain-fog issue, so now that I'm feeling a little better I thought I'd continue with some fics with a little more substance (ie plot). This one is an USTy classic from Karen. The tension is almost at breaking point. There's lots of Scully-angst, thanks to the Emily arc, and therefore Mulder-angst-by-proxy, plus some more angst thrown in for good measure. You might need tissues for some of the angsty but sweet MSR moments.
