Title: Phi Phenomenon
Author: melissaisdown
Rating: M
Spoilers: Uh, everything I guess.
Timeline: Any time after The Truth
Summary: Mulder and Scully are in a sexual relationship. A video camera is involved. Sprinkles of substance on top of a confection of smut. (aka) Mulder and Scully make a porno.

Author's Notes: At entry, here:

And why did she never wear dresses at the FBI? It was always suits and long skirts and shoulder pads. In this dress she's home. She's his.Collapse )

Didn't someone here mention that they wanted more activities? You are invited to the first annual mini-rewatch at xf_book_club .

Mini-rewatch June 21-27

We'll watch seven episodes in seven days, beginning tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. PDT. Yes, tomorrow. I'm feeling spontaneous.

June 21: "Ice"
June 22: "Little Green Men"
June 23: "Humbug"
June 24: "Pusher"
June 25: "Quagmire"
June 26: "Detour"
June 27: "Small Potatoes"

Why these episodes? I took the suggestions from this list, subtracted the episodes we discussed at xf_is_love and scully_fest . Then I threw in "Humbug" and put back "Little Green Men."

There will be fanfic recs for the episodes, assuming I have any. There is a banner at the community. Please publicize this everywhere. You don't have to have to be a member or even have an account here to participate. Anonymous commenting is enabled. I hope to see you there.
15th-Jun-2014 03:25 pm - The X-Files Files Podcast
X-F - Frohike Win

I Listened to this new podcast this morning. It is pretty good even if they mix stuff up that happens in episodes, but they know quite a lot about the show and the fandom. The host is a guy who watched the show as a kid and who used to buy the season books and print out discussions threads from newsgroups. He uses fandom words like "ship" so you can tell he's one of us.

And a big plus in my book they don't overuse "like","literally","totally","so" and sundries speech farts, which are my current podcast pet peeve (looking at you Game of Thrones)

A nice little trip down nostalgia lane. I hope they do many more.

X-F - Mulder Bored
I'm just posting for the Hell of it, because this place hasn't had a post in 3 months and this is ridiculous. I know our fandom has gone back to being cult and that we are a dying breed, but come on! Even Scully is rolling her eyes at this. Observe:


Have you guys all moved on? Have you all migrated to Tumblr or somewhere else? Haven has been down for 3 days and I haven't heard a peep about it on the interwebz.

Do I need to post a Gif of Mulder in his Speedo to get a little life around here?
15th-Feb-2014 05:47 pm - A Scully Fest Challenge
scully fest
Back in the day, there was an X-Files community, meaning a mailing list, called Scullyfic. In 2001, the list administrator Jill Selby issued a challenge: write a 155 word story about Dana Scully. You can read the stories that resulted at Scully in 155. The fics are not all exactly 155 words: some are a little longer, some shorter.

In honor of her upcoming 50th birthday, we at Scully Fest thought it would be fun to issue the same challenge to the fandom. You can post the stories as a comment to this post, either in a comment or a link. You can post your story on your day if you signed up for one. You can even still sign up for a day since several have opened up. Or if you'd rather, you can wait for her birthday free-for-all day.

In conclusion,

16th-Jan-2014 11:47 am - Scully Fest!
Scully Green
This year, our favorite character, Dana Katherine Scully, is turning fifty. I know, I couldn't believe it either.

In her honor, tree and I made a LiveJournal community. And there is a tumblr now too,[ profile] scullyfest, which you can follow for updates.

A celebration for Dana Scully's 50th birthday!

It's for ten days only, so we're allowing multiple signups; right now, it's two people per day. To participate, all you need to do is claim a date and then post a new Scully-centric fanwork(s) on your day. You can post fanart, fanfic, graphics, icons, vids, podfic, essays, meta, or even a memoir telling how us how Scully influenced your life. As long as it's celebrating Scully, it will be welcomed. If you already know you won't be able contribute a fanwork or essay, join anyway so you can watch and cheer us on.

If you want to help publicize this, you can snag this handy code. If you prefer, the code for just this image and a smaller version can be found at the community on LJ. Thanks to monanotlisa for making these banners for us. ♥

X-F - To The End

Time to call the Bounty Hunter, Mulder is in a submarine again!!!

I'll get the popcorn.
I love cheetahs, and Laurie Marker does great work, so I'm very excited to see Gillian Anderson partnering with CCF.

X-F - Score
Just in case you guys missed this. GA taking the mickey out of David Beckham was hilarious.

X-F - Your shit my fan
During the Reddit AMA someone asked GA if she'd read any fanfiction, she replied that a friend had advised her against it so she hadn't. DD replied that Nic Lea had shown him a page that turned out to be a Krycek/Mulder slash site.

I think if you add this to the nervous smiles of CC and Spotnitz whenever someone ask them about fanfiction it is safe to assume that DD, GA and the boys at 1013 all think that XF fanfic is nothing but a whole lot of embarassing porn.

But you,  all of you who have been hanging out in this fandom for years, you know that our fanfic is not just about smut, right? Yes, as in many fandoms there is a big proportion of porn and teen wish fulfilment drivel, but we also have - especially in the XF fandom, a whole lot of excellent stories written by very talented people - yes some have mature content in the same way some HBO shows do. If Game of Thrones isn't being dimissed as an empty smut fest, why should we? The list of brilliant stories discussed on the xf_book_club is a pretty damn good proof of what this fandom can achieve in terms of quality.

So I'm angry, I'm angry because whenever I see comments like the Reddit one, I realise that those people don't have the first clue that for the past 20 years, we've kept Mulder and Scully alive with our stories. Fanfic writers are one of the reasons  - if not the main reason - this fandom hasn't shriveled up and died many years ago. Instead we're being treated with contempt, like a shameful lecherous uncle who should remain unmentionned.

I think we should come up with a list of stories we're proud of. And I think next time there is an event or a convention or whatnot, instead of asking DD and GA the name of their favourite episode or how it felt to eat that bug for the nth time, we should hand them our list of stories and set the record straight once and for all - that there is more to us than the obssesive bunch of pervert Google search engines make us to be.

Story tellers, that's what we are first and foremost. That's what we've been for 20 years.

Rant over. Post the stories you would nominate below. (If anybody from the XF bookclub sees this, it would be great if you could come up with a list too.)

X-F- Don't Mess With The Mothership

I never thought I'd see these two on a cover again. Awww...don't they just look adorable?
It makes me want to do X-filey things again. It's been too damn long.

Edited because I just noticed she's wearing Scully's cross! Double awwww.

X-F - Get Over Here
Hence spoke DD about reading his lines with Gillian before their respective auditions for the roles of Moose and Squirrel. :)

Here are links to the most excellent, hilarious GA & DD panel which took place yesterday at the Paley Centre. I'm told this is much better than the ComicCon panel which GA & DD also attended, for which there is sadly no vids (well up til now, it might change.) Anyway when I found out about this, I felt like I had little butterlies flukemen in my stomach. Gillian's laughter hasn't changed. I think the last time I heard it in its full glory was back in the bloopers days. (back when there was no YouTube and we had to send VHS tapes to each other.)

Doesn't that make you sad nostalgic? It makes me sad nostalgic. *g* But trust me you'll laugh out loud at least once.

The X-Files 20th Event (password is XF2013)

Here's a you tube version. The quality is not as good as the Vimeo one.

And here's a download link. (Thanks to Abbey from Haven.)

There was also an AMA on Reddit also yesterday:
"Gillian Anderson here. I brought David Duchovny with me."

Happy 20th Birthday my fellow Philes!!! XX
XF - old school
I've been rewatching S5-S9 of The X-Files recently, and thought I'd share the notes I made about each season:

Season 5
Season 6 and Fight the Future
Season 7
Season 8
Season 9 and I Want to Believe

(earlier seasons can be found on my rewatch tag)
