3) I've had this read by several people who are *not* X-Philes,
and the general response (from the male sector at least) is
exactly what I was going for. Unfortunately, this kind of
reaction *can* be rather damaging if you're in the wrong state of
So to state this clearly: In this story, I do my level best,
through whatever narrative tricks I've picked up over the years,
to make S&M situations and self-mutilation seem attractive. DON'T
BELIEVE ME. It is my personal belief that any behavior that
leaves scars, whether emotional or physical, is *dangerous*, and
should be examined fully in a level state of mind before trying
it. Mulder is *not* in a level state of mind in this
fanfic(neither is Scully, come to think of it,) and you should
never try anything you read here without consulting a licensed
and recommended psychiatrist.
So, now that I've scared away all the sheep...
