    Summary

    Ostensibly, Gwen Donovan’s place of residence was in Philadelphia, where her husband had been stationed since America had joined the war, working with the Navy. In reality, she'd only lived there with him for a few months before he moved her to his house in Polvo, New Mexico, a town no one knew existed save for the people living in it and, she assumed, high-ups like the President.

    Ostensibly, Gwen Donovan knew her husband was there because of Lambert and Maraczek. She was never told otherwise, but she knew from the beginning there was something much bigger going on.

    Ostensibly, Gwen Donovan was told a lot of things, but simple observance and common sense told her otherwise almost every time.

    Summary

    It is 1951 when Carmen first realizes she likes Petra.

    That’s not true. She has been friends with Petra since as far back as she can remember, since before their first jump, and to say she didn’t like her until now does that friendship a disservice.

    Let’s try again: It is 1951 when Carmen first realizes she loves Petra.

    Summary

    "Time can't just disappear, it's a universal invariant!"
    "Not in this zip code."
    -"Pilot," The X-Files

    Agent Sally Grissom was the pride and joy of the FBI's TTA program—until her partner, Nikhil Sharma, turned traitor and left her neck-deep in an official investigation into her own loyalties. Although her name was cleared, you don't have to be a particle physicist to tell when people have started treating you differently because of something like that (although she is, of course). So when Division Chief Esther Roberts summons her to a meeting, Sally can't help but feel that it's to punish her.

    When she's assigned to work with Anthony Partridge, a statistical analyst who's been chasing fairy tales ever since his wife's disappearance, she KNOWS that it was to punish her.

    (Or in other words, the ars PARADOXICA/X-Files oneshot that the world needed.)

    Summary

    (jet lag, noun, “a physiological condition which results from alterations to the body's circadian rhythms resulting from rapid long-distance trans-meridian (east–west or west–east) travel on high-speed aircraft” coined sometime in 1966.)

    Anthony Partridge has never been on a plane and if this is what it feels like he never intends on being on a plane ever.

    Summary

    Esther might be queer, but she's not stupid. Polvo's entirely too small a town to let anyone know about her preferences.

    Anyone.

    Summary

    It's been years since ODAR came to a chaotic and deadly end, and the world has moved on. The world never knew ODAR was there to begin with. All that remains of the once all-powerful agency is a technologically advanced twentieth century and a handful of old scientists. Sally Grissom is no longer struggling with the thought of living in the past, just living with it.

    That's when she gets approached for a job by a company called Goddard Futuristics.

    Plus, dentistry ads, gnawing curiousity, Formal "Probably A Robot" Tie, and the literal curvature of space and time.
