As you know, the last several days have been filled with unimaginable grief over the horrific killings in Orlando. I have watched countless hours of news coverage of this terrible tragedy, and I still can’t even begin to make sense of it. I know this poem won’t bring any of those victims back to their families or take away any of the pain the survivors are feeling, but I just needed to get some thoughts out of my head…
By now I’m sure you’ve all heard the news about The X-Files being back in business with David and Gillian, and if you were like me when you heard it, you got a BIG smile on your face and you might’ve even pumped your fist in the air a few times and shouted, “YES!!!!!” …or maybe that was just me.<g> In any case, you know I’m all about the “possibilities”, and I can’t help but hope that the writers of the show will give me a lot of new possibilities to explore with these wonderful characters. For me, I would prefer the six stories to be standalone MOTW stories, although it would be nice to have some follow-up/closure with the William storyline once and for all. So, what would YOU like to see in the new episodes???
I’ve been reading a lot of online comments/quotes about this news since yesterday, and the one that just warmed my heart came from Mr. David Duchovny himself.
“It’s been 13 years, hope my suits still fit.”
Welcome back, Mulder…and you too, Scully. You have been missed.
For 16 years now, I’ve written X-Files stories. For 11 of those years, I’ve posted and stored my stories at my site: http://possibilities.bravehost.com/, but now I’m ready to move onto something smaller…and simpler, hopefully. Although I still love The X-Files and adore Mulder and Scully, I just don’t have the time or motivation to write all the time the way I used to. That being said, I will be closing down my site in August and using this blog instead. Consequently, if there’s something on the site that you want to save, now would be the time to do it.
One of the things I really enjoy doing is talking about how and why I come up with the stories I write…what inspires me, what makes me angry, what makes me feel like a mushy puddle of love, what makes me want to change what I see on the show…and that is what I would like this blog to be. Along with sharing my stories, I’d like to share *why* I chose to write them. It is my goal to gradually repost many (but not all) of the stories I currently have at my site to this blog and give you my “author’s notes” about each one as I repost it, and maybe in doing so, some of the stories and memories may kick me into gear and inspire me to start writing some more new stuff. <g>
Anyway, I hope that you’ll come along with me on this journey and enjoy reading these stories and vignettes as much as I enjoyed writing them, and if you’d like to share your thoughts with me about anything related to my stories or the show, that would be wonderful.
