Happy birthday, Scully!  
Quick note just to say hi... I realized last month Scully's birthday was coming up but didn't think anyone else would remember. I found this comm literally a couple of days ago and was thrilled to learn just how wrong I was!

this? is lovely. for some reason my favourite part is that there's a rule for him not calling her after he's been watching the discovery channel. i just... it's helplessly sweet and wonderful and is now part of my head canon. thank you.

and thanks for coming to play with us. :)

Thank you so much for the lovely compliments! It's my first X-Files fic, and nothing really happens, so I was really nervous when I posted it.

And thank you for the warm welcome! I just wish I'd found the comm sooner.

I like this a lot. The dialogue is great, her internal monologue sounds just like the Scully in my head. Well, yours might be a little nicer than mine. If I wasn't so frigging sick I'd have something more coherent to say. I'm really happy that you found us.

Welcome to Scully Fest.

In conclusion, SCULLY FEST!

I'm glad you liked it, and thank you for taking the time to comment, especially when you're sick! Get well soon!

Thank you. I am working on that.

I think we need to do a Scully Fest like this every year.

I know I don't get a vote, but if I did...


I'm still reading all the posts from this year, and I have to say that I'm loving it. I tend to appreciate fandom from a safe distance because... well, the crazy... but this has been a really enjoyable experience. Thank you.

My GOD, but this is good! Congrats and do more, please.

I never understood The Usual Suspects either.

Thank you so much! I'm happy you liked it! I can't guarantee anything, but I have a couple of ideas for case-type fics floating around in my head. Now that I feel reasonably reassured I can pull off the characterization, I might try my hand at an actual plot. lol

I think the The Usual Suspects is one of those polarizing films like The Big Lebowski or True Romance, where you either really like it or don't see what the big deal is about. I understand both opinions, but I have to admit that I, like 'my' Scully, am fond of needlessly convoluted plots enacted by pretty men. Come to think of it, that might have had at least a little something to do with why I first started watching The X-Files... I came for the pretty, but I stayed for the awesome.

Please. Don't make me beg. I am dying for new casefic. I'm so desperate I might have to write it myself.

There's a thread at Haven for new fics ie from this year that weren't posted to Ephemeral--may I add it?

I promise to start on the story this week...but I write slowly so it might be a few before you see anything posted. It's coming though, and it will be a multi-chapter story.

Of course you can add it! Thanks for asking!

I'm excited that you'll be writing for us again. Should I link to here or to your journal or do you have a page at AO3 or ff.net?

I also wondered if you'd like an invite to another community I run, xf_book_club? We discuss fanfiction.

I'm excited that you're excited. Eventually, I plan on adding my stories to ff.net, but I've somehow never gotten around to it, so please feel free to link however you'd like.

Hells yeah! Please send the invite!

I sent it. I can also send you an invite to AO3. It has a much simpler posting interface than FF.net or Ephemeral. If you want it, PM me with your email address.
