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:
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.:)
