Rife with graphical lexia...
A more conservative, less sexual femininity:
Scully wears a long dress shape, of course associated with women
The shape of the bodice emphasizes her chest.
Overall, the dress is very conventional as a wedding dress. Nothing daring. On the other hand, Mulder is not in the usual tux – he’s in a modern suit
Here, the placement of Scully’s hand takes on a new meaning.
-Having it on her hips draws attention to them, and to the eventual use for childbearing
-Along the same lines, her hand and arm help to create a sort-of outline for the suggested growth of a stomach
A recurring theme of exploration of scully’s femininity: why?
-Largely unexplored in show
-Many of the fanfic authors are women - character identification
-Emotional exploration of the characters is more often created by and of interest to women
