Notes: This was written for my good friend, Alleycat, in response to a discussion amongst fellow discipline afficionados about our favorite western-type shows, so it’s a kind of homage to that sort of universe. If the idea of a 15 year old Mulder in a father/son type relationship with Skinner squicks you, or homespun sentimentality makes you barf, please don’t read on!
Part Two (posted June 17, 1999): Mulder struggles to come to terms with his new life, and his place in Skinner’s affections.
Part Three (posted June 28, 1999): Mulder finds the answers to some questions about Skinner, and discovers where he wants to be.
A big thank you to Phoebe for providing some technical information, and Alleycat for beta reading. Just to let you know, as I get asked a lot, there aren’t any more stories in this series. I’m delighted if you’ve enjoyed it but I won’t be continuing it.
