Chris Carter is not your friend

Chris Carter is breaking up Mulder and Scully and it breaks my heart.  

I’m in the middle of a very serious X-files rewatch.  After a bit of a slog through season 2, I’m back with Duane Barry and now?  The love is deep.

My 40-something roommate: “You’re one of those weird X-file kids, hunh?”  Yes.  Yes I am.

Chris Carter has never really expressed anything positive in terms of the Mulder and Scully relationship, and in fact seemed annoyed that fans were so interested in its development.  Nevermind that in the pilot Scully moons over Mulder instantly and also strips down to her skivvies in his hotel room for dubious reasons.  I’m sure none of that was purposeful on the part of the writer/director/creator.
