Summary: Calleigh is attending a forensics seminar at Quantico and is quite taken with the instructor – Dr Dana Scully.
Spoilers/Timeline: This is an AU where Scully is about 37, teaching at Quantico and never slept with Mulder and was never pregnant; Calleigh is about 34, over Jake and certainly not interested in Eric.
Archive: please ask first.
A/N 1 (Dhamphir): The idea for this came about through a group chat. Some ideas were being thrown around to provide a plot bunny to inspire a story. No one was willing to take the plot bunny and run with it. However, somehow, Yellowsmurf and I ended up agreeing to each write one of the characters. Obviously I agreed to write Scully. ;)
A/N 2 (Yellowsmurf6): What Dhamphir REALLY meant to say is that she and my girlfriend (Widge) were chatting one day on my way home from work, and by the time I got home, they had decided it would be a good idea for me to write this story. O_o Not being confident enough to tackle this on my own, I somehow ended up agreeing to the buddy system, which resulted in me writing Calleigh. *scratches head* Anyway, it turned out to be much less painful than I had feared, and last time I checked, I AM still alive. So there you have it! :D
A/N 3: We would like to thank widget007 for providing the title (and for repeatedly reassuring Yellowsmurf that writing a story would NOT result in her eminent death), and bara_brith and darkbardzero for the awesome beta services which they provided.
