“That you should know my heart, look into it, finding there the memory and experience that belong to you, that are you, is a comfort to me now as I feel the tethers loose and the prospects darken for the continuance of a journey that began not so long ago, and which began again with a faith shaken and strengthened by your convictions, if not for which I might never have been so strong now as I cross to face you and look at you incomplete, hoping that you will forgive me for not making the rest of the journey with you.”
Scully’s journal entries to Mulder are gorgeous, and I could unpack them forever. She’s never been this vulnerable before, but she trusts—at least before she hesitates to show him—that the foundation of it all is so obvious that she doesn’t even need to say it. She doesn’t need to tell him how much he means to her, because he knows her heart. He’s shared her most important experiences, even though they haven’t known each other that long. That’s what she regrets the most: not having more time with him. It’s just unquestioned that if she could have that time, she’d spend it with Mulder.
