I was talking to my brother about how they'd completely fallen off the face of the earth and he oh so nonchalantly mentioned that he had them.
Um...why and how?
Apparently, many, many years ago he wanted to properly sit down and watch The X-Files. I of course have the DVDs so he borrowed them from me.
He said I kicked up a fuss about letting him borrow the actual boxset of XF seasons 1 & 2 (hey, they're fragile and back when I bought them a "sale" was $50) so I told him that he could borrow one of my DVD sleeves with the discs inside. He took the opportunity to go "shopping" in my DVD collection and loaded up with other shows he wanted to watch. That sleeve had all three seasons of Forever Knight, the first two of The X-Files, season 1 of Millennium, season 1 of Heroes, and season 1 of Batman the Animated Series. That's a whole lot of shows that went AWOL. Now he didn't actually want to watch FK but the discs were already in the sleeve so he left them in rather than remove them.
The reason I had no memory of this was because with my blessing he loaded up while I was at work. Still, they were missing for YEARS and I never noticed.
Nevertheless, my pretties are back in my possession. Series rewatch here I come!
Dare I hope for some fic inspiration like back in the good old days.
