So there's gonna be a season 11, right? RIGHT? Or a movie? Something?

But seriously, when's season eleven?

The X-Files 10x04 Home Again )

In other news I continue to get weirded out every time Scully calls Mulder "Fox" or he calls her "Dana". No, that's wrong. Stop it.

Everything is the X-Files and nothing hurts.

And rest in peace, Kim Manners. <3

A good solid MOTW-turned-mytharc episode.

I wish I could give you an objective and analytic reaction post to the first episode of The X-Files revival, but I cannot.

13-year-old me is punching the air so hard right now.

Mulder and Scully are back!

201 episodes of The X-Files later...

#201DaysOfTheXFiles )

That said, I am still incredibly excited for season 10, starting tomorrow!
chicafrom3: photo of the TARDIS (tv: txf: moose & squirrel)
We are officially off the rails and through with season 8.

#201DaysOfTheXFiles )

Next up: season nine! Confession: I have previously seen a small number of season nine episodes. I know I've seen the finale, I know I've seen William, I think I've seen Jump The Shark and maybe the season opener. But I skipped most of the season when it was originally airing because I disliked Doggett and Reyes so much and until now I've never gone back to watch it.

So we're now moving from the rewatch portion into the first-watching portion.

I am . . . apprehensive.

Season seven! A day late but sometimes that has to happen.

#201DaysOfTheXFiles )

Next up on season eight: I don't really remember, I hated it the first time through and never actually rewatched it. We'll see if that holds true now that I've grown up enough to move past my resentment at John Doggett for not being Mulder. (YOU'RE NOT MULDER.)

In other news I went looking for Samantha Lives AUs on AO3 and was sadly disappointed. I should go digging through Gossamer instead, I guess. Is Gossamer still running? God, I'm old.

I have returned from Maine! And now I'm missing New England. Oh, well, I got a week of seeing family and eating lobster and a day trip to Boston for delicious delicious cannoli and wandering the MIT campus, which is more than I usually get.

In other news I'm slowly getting caught back up on my X-Files marathon, as well as the rest of the TV I missed on my trip. Today I finished season six.

#201DaysOfTheXFiles )

Next up: season seven, a continuing exploration of new kinds of stories their new location opens up to them, and the most series-devastating season finale ever.

The antibiotics are starting to work! The codeine isn't really. But I'm mostly upright, though having some difficulty breathing, and I've even written ~2k towards NaNo. I'm hoping to get at least to 3334 tonight.

In the meantime have some slightly belated thoughts on the most recent part of my X-Files rewatch, because I'm almost caught up and I finished another season.

I may have to take back what I said about season two.

Season two is still pretty great, but season five is AMAZING.

#201DaysOfTheXFiles )

Technically next up should be Fight The Future, but I don't have immediate access to Fight The Future and it's not included on the #201 schedule anyway. So we're moving on (have already moved on...) to season six and the production's move from spooky Vancouver to sunny California.
chicafrom3: photo of the TARDIS (tv: txf: moose & squirrel)
Season four! We know what we're doing now.

#201DaysOfTheXFiles )

Next up, season five, and the introductions of some incredibly important characters!

Alternate post titles: I've heard the truth, Mulder. Now what I want are the answers. or, It's not yet the finely detailed insanity that you've come to expect from me, it's just a theory. This is a very quotable season.

Season three, and the writers are getting more comfortable with What The X-Files Is.

#201DaysOfTheXFiles )

On to season four!

Season two, aka: Shit's getting real.

#201DaysOfTheXFiles )

On to season three!
chicafrom3: photo of the TARDIS (tv: txf: moose & squirrel)
So I've been doing the #201DaysOfTheXFiles rewatch -- one episode a day, timed to wrap up just before the new miniseries starts -- and today I finished season one.

(I figure, like I did with my LOST rewatch, I'll do season reviews here. Although since I'm only doing one episode a day, they'll be a little less frequent this time. But there'll be more of them!)

The X-Files Season One )

It's not perfect, but it is a strong start to the series, with some memorable monsters, the beginning of the mytharc, and the groundwork for Mulder and Scully's irreplaceable relationship. 9/10

(In semi-related news, today I also started a one-episode-a-day rewatch of Continuum, to prepare for the final season this summer. Ahh, William B. Davis. You're pretty much always one of the bad guys.)

Fox is bringing the X-Files back.

For six episodes.

With Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.

I am flailing so hard right now omg.

You know, LJ, this whole extremely-delayed-notifs thing is a pain in the ass. Fix it, pls and thank you.



30 Days Of TV:

Day 28 ♥ First TV show obsession

The X-Files.

There were other shows, before The X-Files, that I enjoyed, that I made a point of watching, whatever. Ghostwriter, for example, probably has a decent claim to being my first TV obsession. But if we're being honest here, it's The X-Files. This started in...middle school? Probably? and continued until the last season, at which point I quit watching because it was so far away from the show I loved.

TXF was the first to get me seriously into online fandom and fic and everything else that goes with it. The XF RPT remains one of my favorite memories of fandom. This is the point at which I picked up my username, a username that has persisted to this day despite occasional thoughts that I should change it to something less specific-fandom related; I always wind up concluding that I've just got too much history invested in this name to change it.

Mulder and Scully were my heroes back in the day, yo. And I desperately wanted to be one of The Lone Gunmen.

the rest )


30 Days Of Who:

Day 21 ♥ Your Doctor Who OTP

Strictly speaking, I don't have a Who OTP. There is no couple I love together enough not to ship them with other people as well.

That said, the closest I have to a Who OTP has to be Barbara/Ian.

(Because, you see, with Barbara and Ian I can totally ship them with other people, but at the end of the day I have to believe that they wind up together. Possibly in an open relationship, but together.)

Also, if you need proof that they were totes ~doing it~, just watch "The Romans". For serious.

the rest )

Happy 10/13, fellow X-Philes!

1. Reply to this post with 'Icons!', and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will - allegedly - create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.


Keywords: cookies!

Once upon a time there was a [livejournal.com profile] metaquotes post that involved the phrase "We're having hot lesbian sex. And by lesbian sex we mean tea. But it's still hot." This amused a great many people and inspired a great many icons. Teh Niki and I were discussing it, and we were both amused by the phrase, and one or the other of us said, "It's totally about us! Except neither of us drinks tea!" So at some point in this conversation I suggested the substitution of cookies, and she made the icon, and lo, you have our relationship in a nutshell.
Also, the cookies are chocolate chip, if there was any doubt.

There's another story behind this one, and again it's weirdly convoluted. My first solid introduction to online fandom was the official X-Files message board, way back in the day when I was very young. I needed a screenname, thought about it for a while, and finally impulsively decided to name myself after Kristen Kilar, the vampire wannabe Mulder hooks up with in the second-season episode "3". Rather than actually try to register a variant of "KristenKilar" or the like, I called myself chicafrom3. The name stuck, and still does, as you've noticed. This icon's really nothing more or less than a nod to the origins of my screenname -- Mulder and his vampire love interest.

more icons! )
