Sometimes one man’s faith is all that stands between revelation and destruction.

Scully/Other, M/S UST, Angst, Mytharc

I was surprised to enjoy this one as much as I did given that it's a Scully/Other. The story sucks you in, and it's set during the time of Mulder's disillusionment in Season 5, a few months after The Red & The Black, when Mulder's trying to deliberately push Scully away. While Mulder's playing up his asshole side, Scully's still trying to come to terms with the whole cancer/chip/Emily thing, so it's understandable that she'd seek comfort with someone who's going through a similar ordeal. Mulder's attitude makes Scully gladly go off on her own, but I'm sure you can guess what happens once she arrives there and decides to take a week's vacation...
