5th-Sep-2015 04:10 pm - Hello (Call me Milagro)
I'm a younger fan who was previously on Tumblr and found it too stressful. I am joining LiveJournal for the book clubs and discussions. You can also find me on Haven and my fic on AO3.

X-Files Skeptical by frey-at-last
I thought that it would be fun to host a friending meme for the show now that The X-Files is officially coming back :)

Summary: After the FBI clears his name, Fox Mulder struggles to rebuild his life, so when Treeview Hospital invites Dana Scully for and incredible career opportunity, the couple relocates to Portland, Oregon for a new start.

Detectives Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin become inundated with wesen-related conflicts, both criminal and otherwise, as the wesen population around Portland increases at an alarming rate for no discernable reason. The two detectives enlist Rosalee Calvert and Monroe to help Juliette Silverton, whose entire world is turned upside-down by her new Hexenbiest powers.

Mulder and Scully find themselves entangled in a conspiracy with new factions that all want a sphere of influence, but one thing becomes very apparent to the former FBI partners: they're all gunning for Nick Burkhardt.

In fact, Burkhardt is at the center of so many odd occurrences, he could have his own X-Files cabinet, so Mulder opens a new case section, Addendum GW.

10th-Jun-2015 11:57 am - More BTS pictures!
Scully, kiss
EOnline has some fantastic, squee-inducing, possibly minorly spoilery behind-the-scenes photos that purport to be the first ones of Mulder & Scully back in action. Also a nice quote from Gillian Anderson at the end about a possible plot point, that made me laugh because it's so GA.

I'm not sure I can handle this. Apparently I am just as much of a fangirl as I was in 2008.

(Also mods, do we have a tag for the revival yet?)
12th-May-2015 07:08 pm - X-Files Revival Research
science v mysticism
I hope you don't mind me posting this here guys, but I'm undertaking some research on responses to the revival from fans, former fans, lapsed fans and never-were-fans. This will contribute to my PhD on negotiating fandom, which I began back in 2010 with a proposal on X-Files fanfic! The subject has changed somewhat since then but as a life-long Phile I really want to talk about TXF in my work. If you'd be able to fill this in I'd be really grateful.

Midnight Beast

I like this idea, though William B. Davis must be about 75 by now. I was worried I'd find out he'd passed away and I hadn't known.
[xf] the original

The X Files is coming back!

Now let's start a party or something!!!!

ETA: Sorry about the size of the picture... I'm too excited to look for another atm.
18th-Jan-2015 10:53 am - X-Files Reboot?

I'm hopeful - hopefully it won't end up ruining things and they'll just pick things up from where the last movie left off. They might render the recent comic books as non-canon, and they need to get David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson back.

I can imagine Robert Patrick not doing it as I seem to imagine him being busy with other things, but if none of them are around I can imagine the stars being Reyes and someone else and it would feel weird.

Fingers crossed - I've dreamt for years that this became a reality.
18th-Jan-2015 01:49 am - FOX confirms 'X-Files' Reboot Talks
Pilot! Scully
Fox’s new agenda is looking a lot like their old one. Confirming some prior reports, the network’s leadership says they are seriously chasing a reboot of The X-Files and are possibly interested in bringing back Prison Break too (along with yet another edition of 24 as well — but that’s another story).

In my perfect world, Stella Gibson and Dana Scully are related, possibly through their great aunt Olive.

The Fall season 2 starts on November the 13th. 11/13, I see what you did there Beeb.

The Fall - Stella
(First posted on Haven)

Moose and Squirrel - before being declawed and tamed by scores of fic writers intent on giving them the white picket fence happiness they were never designed for in the first place - were pretty dark and tortured characters to begin with. A given, considering how much crap they went through in the show.

Back in the days many fic writers explored that dark path and gave us many incredible stories, the quintessential one being, of course, the infamous Iolokus. Stories where the characters' traumas weren't swept under the carpet of True Love (TM) Hot Sex, Domestic Life and Fat Babies. Stories where bad things happened to good people.

They were stories such as:

Arizona Highway by Fialka
Secret World by Bonetree
Grace Realized by Michaela
Injuries to The Spirit by Mystphile
The Mill by Cofax

...to name just a few off the top of my head.

In these stories Mulder and Scully were flawed and damaged. Years of turmoil and horrors weren't cured with a kiss and a soft bed. They had issues with one another, they argued and fought. They could be unfair, cruel, monstrous even - their claustrophobic co-dependency toxic, yet unavoidable. They suffered, battled illnesses both mental and physical, and sometimes they even died. Some stories made a point of reminding us how dangerous their job really was - that the human monsters could be worse than the alien ones. But their spirit shone nevertheless through it all, pure and bright, that elusive spark of magnificence that made them - well, you know, THEM.

As a reader I always found those tales much more emotionally rewarding than those of the bunnies and rainbow - Mulder and Scully in love forever in their pretty house with their pretty children - aw, look he has his mother's eyes and his father's nose - variety.

No pain no gain, uh?

I guess my question is: have you read such stories? Do you enjoy them? Can you rec the ones that stayed with you?
26th-Aug-2014 03:42 pm - X-Files is Love Month Signups Open
Trees, Detour
We need more activities for X-Philes at LiveJournal, right?

Signups are open for The X-Files is Love, a month-long multimedia celebration of The X-Files where each participant claims a date and then posts some new X-Files related fanworks on their day. This can be fic, graphics, icons, vids, podfic, essays, a memoir of your days in the X-Files fandom, or pretty much anything as long as it's new and original. You can do as little or as much as you want - the day is yours!

Here is the signup post.
Here is the banners post if you want to help get the word out.

There will be a mini-rewatch again. This year we're doing season two in honor of the 20th anniversary of--season two!
26th-Jul-2014 11:17 pm - Roleplaying?
Haunted Bookstore
Hi *waves* First time poster, long time X-Phile. :)

I'm happy to see that the X-Files fandom is still alive and while maybe not as active as it had been in the heyday, still very present in the fandom universe. I've been a Phile since 1998...I watched "Chinga" because Stephen King wrote it and was immediately hooked. And now I'm doing another start to finish rewatch of the series, which I do about every five years or so. Getting to the point, all of that rewatching and seeing the mytharc unfold, Mulder and Scully's relationship develop, the characters grow and change is making me crave one of my favorite fandom activites...roleplaying!

It's fairly easy to find RPGs, but it is taking a bit of work to find partners who want to use the X-Files fandom. I guess I'm gauging the interest for one of two things: 1) Starting an group game or 2) Starting a group where people can find other players for one on one or small group games.

Does anyone here still have the X-Files muses yearning to break free? :)
X-F - Score

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 )
