she has grandiose ideas about what university will be like. she’ll excel science and medicine, clear the way for women in the boy’s club, go to political rallies, eat healthy, attend parties. she’ll make her way in the world.
what she does not expect is fox mulder. okay, so maybe people call her ‘mrs. spooky’ behind her back, maybe she gets alien sweaters for christmas now, and somehow he convinced her to dress up as a skeleton for halloween (‘get it, scully? like your name? skully!’). he even carves their names into a tree, which she thinks is trite—they aren’t even in a relationship—but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t think about the way afterwards his hands smelled like oak as she falls asleep.
her life is still the same in some ways: test tubes and chemistry beakers, sundays questioning her faith in god, endless hospital hours and studying for finals. but it’s also ufo conventions, drive-in movies and popcorn, hunting for monsters like some zoinked out scooby gang, and a creeping mixture of trepidation and joy as an overzealous psych major and his blinding beliefs wake her up to brand new possibilities.
Look, we’re not going anywhere until you two squash this bullshit.
