Author's Comments

My second-longest X-Files story, I got to include some conspiracy, some case work, Mulder-Scully interaction, lots of angst, lots of sex... a little bit of everything. And a happy ending! [2]

Reactions and Reviews

An X-Files slash novel featuring M/K that covers the Mulder/Krycek relationship from Sleepless to Apocrypha. Lots of angst, love and pain, not necessarily in that order. [3]
