summary: Krycek makes a different choice after the events of Sleepless, but it leads to disaster.
pairing: Main pairing is Mulder/Krycek, but story also features K/O, M/O & Sk/O.
rating: Individual parts may vary, but in general this story is NC-17 for m/m sexual content and recollections of torture.
spoilers: Canon through Duane Barry, then I diverge, but there are some parallel references to episodes up through Requiem
thanks: To Lorelei for a great beta that helped make this a better story. Humble gratitude to Louise Wu, whose technical assistance kept me going and got me past part two.
dedication: To Ursula. In the summer of 2004, Ursula tossed out the idea of a story where Krycek is abducted in Scully's place. My muses did the rest. Thank you, my dear. You're always an inspiration.
