    Summary

    It’s taken her nearly eight years to believe in the impossible, and it’s still easy to revert to old habits. She believed for Mulder when it seemed vital, when it was imperative that if he couldn’t be there that someone be there to fill his role in his life’s work, to take his place, but she didn’t believe when it really was vital. She never imagined him coming back from the dead, always thought it was impossible. If she ever imagined them raising the baby together, she imagined a reality where he never left and her life didn’t crumble to dust.

    Summary

    He hadn’t said one word about the baby, studiously avoiding her midsection when he did actually look at her. She wondered briefly if he hadn’t done the math. Surely, he knew…he must know.

    Summary

    He is too big, too alive, too real. She held his broken body, watched his coffin being swallowed up by the earth, she mourned him and grieved for the father her son would never know, but now he’s here and she doesn’t know where to begin; like a tape unspooled and pieced together in the wrong order.

    Summary

    In 2006 I finished the longest story I’ve ever written: A post-invasion monster called “Mesabi Ferrum”. The story itself was set in 2012, but scattered throughout, I added flashback sequences that were essentially post-episode stories that I felt added to the emotional storyline of MF. As MF moved forward in time, the flashbacks moved backwards. They primarily involved gaps in season 7-9 episodes, but there is one entirely non-post episode flashback (the first one here), that gives context for Mulder and Scully’s life on the run. I guess we could call that a post-“The Truth” story if we must. I have to admit, I wrote the flashbacks both to enhance MF, but also because these were pieces of stories (scenes really) I wanted to tell for myself. I’ve been thinking about posting a little package of these scenes from MF for a while now. I hope fans of the story will enjoy them on their own. Perhaps this can appease you as I finish up the Mesabi Ferrum sequel… And I hope maybe some of you who have never read MF might decide to give the long behemoth a chance. If not, I still think these scenes will make sense as stand-alones.

    Episodes: The Truth, Existence, Three Words, Requiem, Per Manum

    Cheers, Z.
