Acadia Chapter 2

Mulder considered the park. He'd wandered past the parking lot and onto the rocks facing the sea after Scully disappeared. She'd find him when she wanted to leave.  He was struck by the varieties of grey–in Washington, grey came in shades from concrete to gum. Here there was infinite variety. The sun picked out round [...]

Acadia Chapter 1

Acadia Prologue The trees were singing in Fox Mulder's dream. Their voices were varied, alto and baritone and soprano all rising and falling in a chant like the ones he remembered from long-ago Saturdays, reciting prayers in a language he couldn't understand. Its incomprehensibility was beautiful. The trees bent towards him, and suddenly he was [...]

She shuddered and quickly went to [...]

Humans are social animals; they are not fully human in the absence of companionship. Falling trees may make [...]

Acadia Chapter 5

Mulder was not yet back at the cabin when she arrived. She decided to shower, because she could no longer tell how much of the autopsy odor lingered about her. The ranger hadn't winced or had any obvious reaction, but he'd also driven with the window open.  She shampooed twice, just to be sure to [...]

Acadia Chapter 6

III. Whose Woods These Are… Acadia is God’s country. Not the mild God of the New Testament, but fierce Yahweh whose covenant was made with slaves and desert wanderers. Yahweh, who promised to save Sodom if five righteous men might be found there, but was not disappointed in his intentions. Only Adonai, I Am Who [...]

Acadia Chapter 7

Over lunch at one of the tourist traps, about twenty minutes from the park itself, Mulder discussed the new information with Scully, who'd conducted her own investigation as best she could with the limited facilities available.  Mulder told her about Johanna, including a description of the woman's hair for entertainment value, and then described the [...]

Acadia Chapter 8

IV. The Pathetic Fallacy  In springtime, Acadia is underappreciated. The air bites sharply, to be sure, but there are methods of protection. The sunlight comes through the leaves and dapples the ground. Streams swollen to bursting rush down the mountains, gleaming like glass where the light hits them, rounding brown boulders and feeding the trees' [...]
