Of course, one can tell from what is crossed here, that Mulder and Scully are dashing off to Toronto to investigate an X-File. This story is nicely ironic in a number of ways. Apart from one gaffe about Forever Knight vampire lore (in FK, one doesn't become a vampire just by being bitten by one) the author demonstrates a good grasp of both lots of characters, with some nice little touches.
    Mulder replied "We can't be sure of the age or gender of our suspects. I just want to remain open to all possibilities. We can't discount vampires just because modern society no longer believes in them."
    Scully noticed that Detective Knight had moved to the far side of the room. He was now leaning against a wall as far from Mulder as he could get. She had seen this reaction before. Mulder would start ranting about some crazy topic or another and some people felt it necessary _to get as far away from the loon as possible_. Scully just shook her head defeatedly.
