Set post Two Fathers/One Son, Mulder and Scully struggle to get back on the same page as a serial killer stalks couples in the Boston area.
It was fortuitous that permission to share some of Syntax6's stories came just in time to share this Valentine's Day fic. Don't expect any sappy romance though, it's set immediately after One Son before Mulder and Scully start back on the X-Files. Scully needs some alone time before the X-Files reopen and accepts a case in Boston. Naturally her alone time doesn't last long.
There aren't a lot of hearts and flowers in this one. Pissy Scully is on point with her snarky thoughts about Mulder and Fowley. Mulder is on his toes, and Fowley is peak Fowley. Of course, Mulder ends up on Scully and vice versa by the end.
I'll take this opportunity to surreptitiously plug Syn's original novels again. Find out more at her web site.
