Author's Notes: This one was written for a challenge on '*other* other women' at the Harem - people we'll never hear of again. Lisa Ianelli struck me the first time I saw her, so I chose her.
Furious tapping at the keyboard, MIT cryogenics lab. Lisa Ianelli watches the 3-D diagram of the freezing compound molecule. She's going to get Jason back. She has to get Jason back, no matter what it takes. She owes it to Jason to get him back. Jason's shown her so much, she has no clue where she'd be without Jason. Jason was her light for the future, delivery from her past, and the reason she was where she was now.
Scully said he was dead. Lisa won't take that for an answer - not when there's a possibility that her discovery can lead her not to the future, but to the past, where there is hope - hope that she can save Jason and deliver him from her lonely hell that is now.
She knows this research has implications, has risks - maybe stakes that are too high. She can't consider that, though, not when there's a chance of bringing Jason back.
They've always been in this together, and they always will be in this together.
Where there's a will, there is a way - at least, that's what they always say. Lisa's going to bring Jason back - no matter what it takes.
Years of research, her whole life, she's prepared to give that - for Jason, to be with Jason.
Jason and her, they had plans. Have plans? Will have plans.
Jason Nichols was that old man, and also that young man. At first, Lisa didn't believe it herself. She'd thought it impossible, that someone had gotten a handle on what they were researching and were pulling some kind of prank. That had seemed more irrational than the reality itself.
The compound - on the screen, reflects eerily in Lisa's glasses. She pushes the 'enter' button. A smile slowly crosses across her face.
This is Jason's compound. Jason's compound, the compound that has to exist - does exist. She will make it exist. To find Jason - to be with Jason again.
She pushes print, and a printout slowly falls to the desk out of the printer, identical to what is on the screen.
Mathmatical equations are printed down the side of the paper. Lisa looks over them for a second before walking out of the lab, holding the paper, not taking her gaze away from it.
This won't be, because it already is -
This is Jason's compound - this is what will lead her back to Jason - this will be her key to the past, and the key to their eventual future -
"Do you wish to destroy the man who seeks the truth, or the truth so no man can seek it? Either way, you lose." - Reyes, The Truth
"There is no silence deep enough, no black-out dark enough, no corruption thick enough, no business deal big enough, no politicians bent enough, no heart hollow enough, no grave wide enough, to bury your story and keep it from us... Love from a short distance." - Bono, U2 frontman, to the people of East Timor
"I don't know about Agent Reyes, but Agent Doggett is gonna sit his tired ass down." -John Doggett, Scary Monsters
Mulder: Hi. My name is Fox. This is Dana and Diana. How are you doing?
Gibson: I don't mind it here. They get all the good TV shows. Where I live, in the Philippines all we get is Baywatch.
Mulder: What's wrong with Baywatch?
Gibson: You've got a dirty mind.
"I never replaced David. That was never the object. I was a new character that was brought on the show and I did the job that was asked of me, which was to be John Doggett. I did it and David has not been replaced because he's back, he's here. He's Mulder and I'm John Doggett." - Robert Patrick, when asked to comment on 'replacing' David Duchovny
