Author's Notes at the end.


Somewhere behind her lay a dead man and a dead boy.

Somewhere behind him lay a dead woman.

Ripped at the seams, the world in which they'd met had finally succumbed. And few were left standing.

Mulder didn't mean to kiss her.

The ghosts of dead lovers and dead children were silenced. Mulder was taken back to a place he'd once dreamed of. In the traitor's stead, this late friend who tasted faintly of cigarette smoke and who (he'd been told) made whale sounds to calm down. Dark hair. He used to love dark hair.

Monica didn't mean to kiss him. She missed her dog person. Her mind screamed at her for kissing a dead woman's love. He the quest, he the holy grail. The child was dead but his father was very much alive. So said the press of his hips against hers.

Tired and dirty but alive.

The mission, to go on living.


A/N: There is more here, and I might try to write it. Whoa Nelly, and another 'ship in my pocket.

A birthday fic for Medie, by way of Azar and Langleigh. Dedicated to her and to the Harem Wives (they know why).

And to my muse, who also knows why.
