all roads lead back to you // a mulder & scully s1 fanmix  
I'm in the midst of a very intense first rewatch of The X-Files. I finished the series for the first time a few weeks ago and immediately started back at the beginning. I have fallen so deeply in love with season 1. I love watching the character development and watching the relationship between Mulder and Scully grow from nothing to something incredible. They are adorable and have been in some sort of love (be it platonic or romantic) from the very beginning.

I have made a picspam/fanmix to commemorate my completion of the series and my new start. Behind the cut, I have a picture from every episode of season 1 and six quotes that I feel are particularly important to the development of Mulder and Scully's relationship. The songs I pick represent both, in my opinion, the beginning and the entirety of Mulder and Scully's relationship over the course of the series. I tried to make this fanmix a little different, in format and in substance. There are twelve tracks - 6 songs, and 6 audio recordings of the quotes I picked. I apologize about the low quality of the X-Files audio clips (they're not that bad, really), but I did the best I could recording with the materials that I have. I hope you enjoy! Get ready to feel nostalgic and realize how much you really miss and love season 1. ♥♥

SCULLY: Agent Mulder. I'm Dana Scully, I've been assigned to work with you.
MULDER: Oh, isn't it nice to be suddenly so highly regarded? So, who did you tick off to get stuck with this detail, Scully?
SCULLY: Actually, I'm looking forward to working with you. I've heard a lot about you.
MULDER: Oh, really? I was under the impression... that you were sent to spy on me.
SCULLY: If you have any doubt about my qualifications or credentials, th...
MULDER: You're a medical doctor, you teach at the academy. You did your undergraduate degree in physics. "Einstein's Twin Paradox, A New Interpretation. Dana Scully's Senior Thesis." Now that's a credential, rewriting Einstein.
SCULLY: Did you bother to read it?
MULDER: I did. I liked it. It's just that in most of my work, the laws of physics rarely seems to apply.

In This Together
Apoptygma Berzerk

Don't you see
We're in this together
You and me
One on one forever

And in your troubled eyes I see
Someone who carried me somehow
Like footprints in the sand
You've been behind me all along
We got it wrong from the start
Now it's you and me
Let's hit it on
Don't you see, it's you and me against the world

MULDER: Who was that on the phone?
SCULLY: A guy.
MULDER: A guy. Same guy as the guy you had dinner with the other night?
SCULLY: Same guy.
MULDER: You gonna have dinner with him again?
SCULLY: I don't think so.
MULDER: No interest?
SCULLY: Not at this time.
MULDER: Thanks Fran. What are you doing?
SCULLY: I'm going with you to the Smithsonian.
MULDER: Don't you have a life Scully?
SCULLY: Keep that up Mulder and I'll hurt you like that beast-woman.
MULDER: Eight million years out of Africa.
SCULLY: Look who's holding the door.


Baby don't you stay there on the inside
Together we can make it on the outside
You and me on the outside

Can you remember the way it used to feel
We'd run as fast and as far
As we wanted to go
But then the walls closed in
And I was one step forward
And two steps back
Two steps forward and three steps back

Oh it's all too much
So take my hand we'll jump together

ELLEN: Seriously, you're great with kids, what're you talking about.
SCULLY: When am I supposed to find the time?
ELLEN: Well first you have to get a life.
SCULLY: Ooooh.
ELLEN: And, of course, it helps if you can find a man.
SCULLY: Know of any?
ELLEN: Yeah, they're disappearing faster than the Brazilian rain forest. What about that guy you work with?
SCULLY: Mulder?
ELLEN: Yeah, I thought you said he was cute.
SCULLY: He's a jerk. He's not a jerk, he's uh, he's obsessed with his work.


Trying hard to speak and
Fighting with my weak hand
Driven to distraction
It's all part of the plan
When something is broken and you try to fix it
Trying to repair it anyway you can

I dive in at the deep end
and she become my best friend
I want to love you but I don’t know if I can
I know something is broken
and I’m trying to fix it
Trying to repair it anyway I can

SCULLY: We found a way to kill it. Two worms in one host will kill each other.
MULDER: You give me one worm, you’ll infect me.
SCULLY: If that’s true, then why didn’t you let us inspect you?
MULDER: I would have but you pulled a gun on me. Now I don’t trust them. I wanted to trust you.

Die Alone
Ingrid Michaelson

I'm just a stranger, even to myself
A re-arranger of the proverbial bookshelf
Don't be a fool girl, tell him you love him
Don't be a fool girl, you're not above him

I never thought I could love anyone but myself
Now I know I can't love anyone but you
You make me think that maybe
I won't die alone
Maybe I won't die alone

SCULLY: I was considering Boggs. If he knew that I was your partner, he could have found out everything he knew about me. About my father...
MULDER: Scully.
SCULLY: "Beyond the Sea" was playing at my parents’ wedding. Visions of deceased loved ones are a common psychological phenomena. If he knew that my father had...
MULDER: Dana. After all you’ve seen, after all the evidence, why can’t you believe?
MULDER: You couldn’t face that fear? Even if it meant never knowing what your father wanted to tell you?
SCULLY: But I do know.
SCULLY: He was my father.

On and On
Mat Kearney

If there’s one thing that I need to hear from you
Is how we’re gonna see this through?
How we gonna see this through?
If there’s one thing that I know to be true
It’s that I’m in love with you
It’s that I’m in love with you

And I don’t care if everyone knows
What we are goin’ through
'Cause all the roads lead back to you

On and on and on we pray
We can break into a brighter day
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy
On and on and on we go
I don’t understand this winding road
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy

SCULLY: Well, then I’ll stay here. You go home.
MULDER: They’re out to put an end to the X-Files, Scully. I don’t know why, but any excuse will do. Now, I don’t really care about my record, but you’d be in trouble just for sitting in this car and I’d hate to see you to carry an official reprimand in your file because of me.
SCULLY: Fox...
MULDER: And I... I even made my parents call me Mulder. So... Mulder.
SCULLY: Mulder, I wouldn’t put myself on the line for anybody but you.
MULDER: If there’s an ice tea in that bag, could be love.
SCULLY: Must be fate, Mulder. Root beer.

All This Time

Take all the time lost
All the days that I cost
Take what I took and
Give it back to you

All this time
We were waiting for each other
All this time
I was waiting for you
We got all these words
Can't waste them on another
So I'm straight in a straight line
Running back to you

It's like my heart on a rainy day. It's like my eyes seeing an ocean. It's like Mulder and Scully sex. Basically, it's AWESOME.

Okay so

Season one is awesome, most especially when you look at it in the scope of all the seasons. I love their naive beginnings. Scully is not hurt yet. Mulder doesn't feel guilty because his cause hurts her. THEY'RE SO CUTE BASICALLY. Their love is so pure here, it's like a friendship built on the early foundations of respect.

It's like my eyes seeing an ocean.
Funny you say that because we just watched Drive (ROB BOWMAN OMFG) and there is that beautiful shot at the end with Mulder staring out into the Pacific and his shirt is the same kind of blue as the water and the sky and it's very lovely.

HAVE I MENTIONED TO YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE SEASON 1. Fuck I can't believe how quickly I rushed through it the first time around, never stopping to recognize how beautiful it and their relationship is. Early foundations are the best kinds of foundations.
