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:
When I read the news that Mitch Pileggi would be a part of the reboot as AD Skinner, I was thrilled. Although his unwillingness to step over “the line that Mulder kept crossing” bugged me in the early seasons, Skinner became a true supporter and friend of both Mulder and Scully and helped them out time and time again. I actually have no idea how Mulder and Scully will be reintroduced to the audience when the show is back again. Will they be back at the FBI on the X-Files, or will they work in some other department? Or who knows? Maybe they won’t be involved with the FBI at all, That being said, I had fun coming up with this little scenario for Skinner, and whatever the writers ultimately decide to do with them, I’m sure it will be quite intriguing.:)
How do you think Mulder and Scully will be brought “back into the fold”? I’d love to hear your ideas…
I’m still riding the high of hearing the news about The X-Files coming back, and I still can’t get David’s Twitter quote about suits out of my mind so you know what that means…I wrote a story about it! <g>
“It’s been 13 years, hope my suits still fit.”
I have no idea how or even if Mulder and Scully are going to be put back in charge of the X-Files in the reboot, but I’d like to think that Skinner would ask them to come back for some reason or another, and this is my take on a little what-if scenario if that is indeed the case. Enjoy!
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.
I am very pleased to say that I recently paid a long overdue visit to my friends in Clyde.:) When we last left them, Jo had fallen on the ice in front of Sam Bailey’s bookstore, and there were some definite sparks between the two of them, which Mulder immediately noticed and told Scully about. This newest installment is set during the following day, and I hope you enjoy it.:) Story 18 is posted at the end of this file in green so that you can easily locate it.
When I was watching Fight the Future yesterday, I noticed for the first time that there was actually a man wearing a plaid shirt in the hallway as the “paramedics” were taking Scully away on a stretcher. I can’t believe that out of all the times I’ve watched that hallway scene over the years I never noticed it until now, but of course, once I did, I just had to write a little something from his point of view.

In the 16 years that I’ve been writing X-Files fanfic, I’ve always written at least one Christmas fic every holiday season, and now that I’m officially on vacation for the next two weeks, I figured I’d better get to it for this year.:) This little moment in time just came to me this afternoon as I was sitting on the couch next to the Christmas tree with a nice warm blanket on my lap and my nice warm dog lying at my feet. Although I don’t have a Christmas cookie recipe from my grandma like Scully does, I do have a special recipe for sugar cookies that I make every Christmas…and yes, I put frosting and sprinkles on mine too.;) I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas.
