Letters of Transit is an X-Files story by Loch Ness. It is a pastiche-type fusion with the classic film Casablanca.

Reactions and Reviews

It doesn't get more classic than this. "Letters of Transit" is something of a post-Colonization arc story, but set to the tune of the film, "Casablanca." It features strong characterization, great use of secondary characters and a wonderful interpretation of the mytharc. Oh, and did I mention the MSR?? All in a concise, complete and succinct package of wonderful and imaginative writing. [1]
I think I tried Loch Ness's "Letters of Transit" once and had a rather blah~ reaction to it, which was odd as I love "Casablanca" and can recite lengthy passages from the movie almost verbatim. For some reason, I just couldn't get my head wrapped around the whole idea of Mulder-as-Rick. And Pendrell was too wimpy a romantic adversary IMHO. [2]
