From the Past: The X-Files Incredibly Short Fic Archive!

Oh my God. Here's a blast from the past.

For a brief period, I would write incredibly short fanfiction for the X-Files in-between the 'Shipper Surveys and larger fanfic projects. I went and created a dedicated webpage for it on a Tripod provider site... and then promptly forgot my login and password to manage the pages! (it may be an old 'rogue_librarian' account name I used before switching to my current Witty Librarian persona)

After remembering and then forgetting where I had the site - and then prodded today by a writing critique group I'm with about short fiction - I finally took the time to Google Search for it until I FINALLY FOUND THE SITE. 

It was done on an old Dreamweaver HTML editor,
with CorelDraw for the banner designs!

And this time I'm not forgetting it, I'm adding links to it here.

I should have the original HTML pages on file somewhere, so I may one day transfer the stuff directly here, but in the meantime, here's a link to the past my fellow X-Philes!

I need to warn you, the Email link is to an old Lycos email account I cannot recover.

Also a call out to the likes of Cheezstk, JazzieBee, and Spider Angel. Their short fics are archived here as well!

I've let things go on this blog, mostly because real life keeps getting in the way of things and partly because the revival series left a bad taste in my mouth.

I can't guarantee when I'll get back on here to post more of the Senseless 'Shipper Surveys I did back in the days of high adventure, but I hope everyone else is doing okay and finding their own means of enjoying one of the best shows of the 1990s.

I'll tweet out if I add anything here.

Take care.

Another Anniversary of Checking Into This Blog 2020 Edition

Okay, so it's been another year since the last time I said anything on this blog.

I should point out in my defense that Real Life can be a time-consuming monster of the week every week.

And with other things about to happen to me - ouch ouch ouch - there are few guarantees that I may be back any time soon.

All I can do right now is a request to you: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON'T VOTE trump IN 2020!

I hope to be back to check on whether you did. (grrrrrrrrrrrrr)

At Some Point I Will Find Time To Do Some Shipping Surveys 2019 Edition

Having kinda been bummed out by the last season's miscues, I'd gotten into a bit of a funk keeping up with this blog.

I'm also seriously focused on fiction writing projects that take precedent.

So, yes this is an excuse to procrastinate, but I will get something blogged here sooner or later. Something 'Shippy and happy and shiny and...

Fine. Whatever.

Looking Back At Season Eleven: Regrets, I've Had a Few...

Looking back on all that Season Eleven had wrought:

1) Still not enough Darin Morgan.

2) The shift of the Mytharc away from "OMG Aliens are here and taking us over with clones and cyborgs!" to "OMG William is a whiny emo why are we even trying to save him?" has gotta hurt.

3) I've been following Lucas the Spider instead.

4) Actually I've just found this one YouTuber doing X-Files reviews and she's kinda about on the same page as I am with the whole "William is a whiny emo" thing:

5) If there is going to be a Season Twelve, Chris Carter needs to give up on bullsh-tting his way out of the corner he's painted himself into, go back to the points where he started screwing up the alien invasion Mytharc stuff, and fix the plot holes he still hasn't gotten around to resolving so we can get up to date on this stuff and bring back some sense of global menace that made the X-Files an unnerving show to watch.

As Far As the William Arc Is Going This Season

I'm honestly underwhelmed.

The introduction of teenaged William as an illusion-casting self-healing Mutant was slightly unexpected in the middle of what started out as a Monster of the Week (Ghouli), and it seemed part of a disjointed plot to bring some cohesion to a muddled MythArc that had spiraled out of control.

There was a lot of plot ideas thrown at the screen in a 60-minute episode - which begged whether this should have been one of the epic two-parters that informed the MythArc episodes from Season Two forward - and because of that I felt the character development for William went nowhere. He was not given enough time on-screen to show depth.

Although if Smoking Man is his biological father, he's taking after his old man by double-dating and two-timing multiple girls at one time.

Damn that biological urge to breed.
