It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Well, I’m finally done with the school year now, and with that, I actually have some time (and energy) to write. The expression on Mulder’s face when Scully opened up the door at the end of Plus One really caught my attention. I really liked the way that scene played on screen. My only wish is that we as viewers could’ve gotten to see more of Mulder and Scully’s desire for each other like that when the series was originally on, particularly during season seven. I don’t think it would’ve taken anything away from the “scary stories” or mythology to show the occasional sexual sparks between the characters. In any case, here’s just a few of those “sexual sparks” for you in this little prose thingie. Enjoy…

I know it’s been four months since I’ve written anything new. RL events have not been kind to me lately, and consequently, a lot of things have temporarily gone by the wayside. However, I’ve slowly been getting back on track and have been excitedly watching the various previews and reading articles about season 11. One video on YouTube that I’ve particularly enjoyed is this one called Declassified: The End of the World-Season 11-The X-Files. That video along with re-watching The Post-Modern Prometheus have definitely gotten me reinvested and very anxious for the new season to start in a few days.:)

I also figured it was about time for me to get back to doing some writing so last night I randomly picked an episode and thought about what I could write for it. I chose Closure and immediately thought of the end scene with Mulder and Samantha in the woods. Although a lot of people didn’t care for that type of emotional resolution for Mulder, I was very touched by it. The prose thingie I wrote entitled different is a brief look into what Mulder did and felt after he told Scully that he was fine and that he was “free.”

If you would like to share your thoughts about different and Closure or about the new season coming up in just six more days (WOO HOO!), simply click on LEAVE A COMMENT and leave me a comment.:)

One of the things I really liked about season seven was the subtle shift in Mulder and Scully’s personal relationship, especially during the first few episodes. The hallway scene in Amor Fati, the New Year’s kiss in Millenium, and the flirting and playfulness of Scully in Rush, The Goldberg Variation, and The Amazing Maleeni were all interactions I very much enjoyed watching. After those episodes, there was a lot of angst that both Mulder and Scully had to deal with, but I felt that once Mulder finally got the “Closure” he needed with Samantha, he was emotionally ready to share more of himself with Scully, and that’s what I wanted to explore in “shift”.

This week, they started filming the new episodes in Vancouver, and all kinds of pictures and reports have been posted about it, which makes me very excited! Here’s a link to some of the photos:

could be love

It’s been over a month since I wrote anything new, and although I just started working on something longer this weekend, I felt like I needed to challenge myself to write something short to help get my writing mojo back in gear. I decided to give myself 30 minutes to see if I could pick a scene in an episode and write one of my prose thingies for it. I chose the car scene between Mulder and Scully in Tooms for two reasons: 1. I’ve always found their conversation to be so “them.” 2. It always makes me smile no matter how many times I watch it. Surprisingly, despite my lack of writing time and motivation lately, I was actually able to come up with something in 26 minutes so maybe that bodes well for the other thing I’m working on.:) I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

If you have any other ideas for scenes in episodes that I haven’t already written about, please let me know in the comments section below. I can’t guarantee I’ll write about it, but it may give my muse a much needed push. <g>

Real life stuff has gotten in the way a lot lately, and writing hasn’t really been an option for me, but tonight was one of those nights I just *needed* to write something. Having recently caught the last 15 minutes of I Want to Believe on TV the other day, I thought I’d challenge myself and see if I could write a new post-movie “prose thingie” in 30 minutes. Although I didn’t quite meet the challenge…it actually took me about 35 minutes to get the wording the way I wanted it…I am pleased with this little moment in time and can clearly picture it in my head.:)
