Some fans report that their initial reaction to the paring was hesitant, but they were quickly won over:"I loved "Authority" -- definitely not as harsh as most of the s&m XF stories out there. Some nice, hot sex scenes, too. What I enjoyed about it was the progression of the character's reactions. Skinner's assertion of authority was more palatable to me because *we* know he doesn't intend to harm Mulder, but Mulder doesn't know that. And then the way Mulder starts liking it... I thought it was handled well, and I'd love to read more like this. Dare I hope for a sequel or 2 (or 3)?"
"I too found Xanthe through 24/7 and at first i found [the pairing] a little hard to accept. I was new to slash and certainly had never viewed Skinner as anybody but the AD. Hungry for slash, having just discovered it, i ploughed on and soon found myself looking at Skinner in an entirely new light. And a much more appealing Skinner it was!! Now i find that Skinner/Mulder is more natural than anything else, and they fit together so perfectly. When i watch the show now, mostly i am looking for all the subtext that i had never seen before, and i must admit to having a total crush on Mitch Pileggi, and follow him wherever he goes, which is Supernatural right now and a wee bit of SOA too."
