35). A new look at the Mulder character.

Ok, let's face it. We all know of the Mulder and Scully dynamic. Where Mulder is the one that believes everything. From bigfoot, to aliens, to the pyramids, to voodoo. We all get a laugh at this, and in the end, he's proven either right or wrong.

But here's the thing. What if there's something else that gets him to believe that. Something... else. Like, say, him being the father to a magical girl. Or, say, a hunter of vampires. Or anything else. Let's face it. If your daughter turns out to be magical, and is scouted out by a UN-esque interdimensional task force that uses magic, and can use teleportation and has a boy that can turn into a ferret.... well, what's so crazy about it?

If your daughter can fly and teleport, what's so insane about bigfoot or the sasquatch or the hide-behind. Compared to your daughter, they're relatively fucking normal. If you know that magic-using, interdimensional aliens exist that can turn invisible and trump all terrestrial sensory equipment exist, why won't you believe in alien abductions or cow mutilations? If you know people who can shapeshift and turn into animals... well, your coworkers may call you crazy for calling birds government drones or trying to talk to cats, but are you sure that it isn't them using their tech to spy on you, or Linith/ Liese/ Arf/ Blair coming in their cat form to talk to you?

Yeah, that corpse that's insanguinated may be the murder victim of a serial killer with a specific fetish. Or it may be a vampire; It's not that insane, you've killed a dozen of them. That girl that died after her boyfriend swore to put a curse on her? Yeah, he wasn't within 50 miles of her when it happened, but let's just check it out, shall we?

One has to wonder how living in an urban fantasy setting, or a setting where the strange and absurd is actually real, would fuck with people's understanding of what's real and what isn't. Especially in the sandbox types where werewolves, vampires, ghosts, magicians, sorcerers fairies, and the illuminati exist. Pizzaria that's a front for a child trafficking ring? Well, you've fought the illuminati and century-old cabals of wizards. That isn't so outrageous.....
