"Then there is, of course, Pete Quaife, who has apparently moved Jodrell Bank into his garage. Pete is very hung-up on things astronomical at present and the large telescope he has acquired has necessitated in the roof of the garage having to be taken off. When not star-gazing, Pete is assisting in star-making by providing that heavy, pounding beat of the bass guitar which is a feature of so many Kinks hits."
i think the stuff they do w/ mulder’s sexuality or.. lack.. thereof… is actually rly interesting and kind of cool and validating in a way idk. they introduce him as like OH YEAH. IM TOTALLY A HOUND DOG. I HAVE. ALL THE PORN. PORN OF.. SEX ACTS…. YES. I PARTAKE. OF THOSE. MMM
but its kind of like, simultaneously 1. a front perhaps and 2. whenever they actually show him reading or watching the porns he just has this expression of intense curiosity and almost wistful concentration on his face, and like. the constant thing they keep going back to w the dudes who are able to impersonate him or whatever for [INSERT SUPERNATURAL REASON HERE] being universally textually meant to be less desirable than mulder is but yet more. sexually/romantically/emotionally functional. and really impatient with/judgmental of the way mulder lives and his ~failure~ to like. take advantage of how hes ~~SO HOT~~~~~ or whatever????????? i dunno man like. that scene w/ the shapeshiftin’ dude pretending to be him & trying to mack on scully when mulder walks in and he sort of. idk. has this moment where he realizes that he cannot be the version of himself that accomplished the ‘pulling scully out of herself’ thing. he just gets this really sad almost self-loathing expression when the dude gives him that “I DONT UNDERSTAND U IF I LOOKED LIKE YOU DO ID HAVE ALL THE LADIES ALL THE TIME” lecture
i am pretty sure this is my favourite post mulder is so important to me
