Author's Notes: I wrote this at Halloween time and also while I was trying to figure out how Krycek could survive that bullet to the head. But I got to admit, there's something extremely sexy about Krycek as a vampire.
They hadn't given him a choice. They had made him this way.
Alex ran his fingers along the soft flesh of his neck. He could feel the two small puncture wounds there. Barely visible, yet they had changed his life forever.
The end of mankind would no longer be the end of Alex Krycek.
He despised what he had become.
Yet, he could not help wondering what it would feel like to sink his teeth into soft flesh, taste blood, bring another into his own personal darkness.
Who would choose to live like this? Who would ask for a life of darkness when they could have light?
Fox Mulder would. He did. Mulder had spent his whole life being swallowed by shadows.
And Mulder fought to prove to others that his life's work was not in vain. But Alex was beginning to wonder if Mulder's quest was really about uncovering secrets, finding out the truth about his sister.
Or maybe Fox Mulder was just trying to pull others into the shadows with him.
Alex Krycek knew about shadows. He knew about being alone.
Alone in the darkness.
