I watched Sein Und Zeit recently, and I wondered about the portrayal of Scully. Where is she coming from these days? In the mytharc episodes in particular, she seems so sad, and detached from Mulder. Their relationship seems to have changed such a lot from the early days, and I wondered what was going on for her in that episode, and the others where she seems very cold.
This story is an attempt to get inside her head and provide one possible interpretation for her actions and reactions. It’s not intended to be anti-Mulder in any way, just an attempt to see things from Scully’s viewpoint.
It’s also a blatant excuse for some Scullyangst and oodles of Skinnercomfort He can run me a bath any day
