The Adoption Papers Challenge

In this challenge you'll write a story set a few years in the future. The baby Scully and Mulder were expecting at the end of season 11 is now a girl or boy between eight and eighteen years old, and one day s/he stumbles across some paperwork. This paperwork is about the adoption of their older brother, William.

This discovery leads to a conversation with Scully...

Some questions to consider as you write your story:

Does this younger child already know about William?

If so does this younger child already know William/Jackson?

Has the adoption of Scully's older child ever come up before? If s/he knew, how did they feel about it when they found out?
