ericandy’s 30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 5 - Kissing
"I don’t care if this earns me another hook in the jaw, Scully…it’s worth it."
For the first time, I feel time like a heartbeat, the seconds pumping in my breast like a reckoning, the numinous mysteries that once seemed so distant and unreal, threatening clarity in the presence of a truth entertained not in youth, but only in its passage. I feel these words as if their meaning were weight being lifted from me, knowing that you will read them and share my burden, as I have come to trust no other. That you should know my heart, look into it, finding there the memory and experience that belong to you, that are you, is a comfort to me now as I feel the tethers loose and the prospects darken for the continuance of a journey that began not so long ago, and which began again with a faith shaken and strengthened by your convictions. If not for which I might never have been so strong now, as I cross to face you and look at you incomplete, hoping that you will forgive me for not making the rest of the journey with you.
I want you to look at something.
#chris carter filmed this scene deliberately to make this relationship seem ~more platonic~ #and spent the next seven years vehemently denying that these people had any desire whatsoever to put their mouths on each otther’s mouths #explaining this scene to people is even better than the old ‘horrify the twilight n00b’ game i swear to god #’you know what will definitely not make the entire universe ship these two so hard they INVENTED THE WORD ‘SHIPPING’ TO DO SO?’ #idk but emotionally fraught undressing in a motel room followed by intense heart-to-hearts by candlelight and the sound of rain oughta do it #NOW THAT WE’VE CONCLUSIVELY PROVEN THERE’S NO CHEMISTRY HERE WHATSOEVER WILL YOU ALL JUST GO HOME #………..WHY ARE YOU STILL ON MY LAWN (via)
