Title: "In Good Faith"
Author: [livejournal.com profile] wendelah1
Rating: Gen
Word Count: 1427
Summary: Scully and Mulder meet with Skinner to discuss the events in "Demons."

Author's Note: This story was started back in February for [livejournal.com profile] purimgifts as a treat for [livejournal.com profile] amalnahurriyeh. It's the fourth vignette in a series of post-eps which are designed to be a bridge from "Demons" to "Gethsemane." You don't have to have read the first three, but if you want to, you'll find them here at AO3: Demons Series. "In Good Faith" takes place the morning after Scully drives Mulder home from Rhode Island.

Grateful thanks to [livejournal.com profile] idella for her insightful beta. Any mistakes that remain are mine alone.

Hello, everyone. I'm SZ. I confirmed to Wendy that I was still planning to post yesterday, and then... well, the truth is that I fell asleep with my glasses on, and when I woke up I was forced to deal with the fact that it was unavoidably Sunday, but can I just say I lost time? :P Sorry, Red, for trespassing on your day.

I started watching The X-Files when I had the flu.

I missed the show when it aired; I was so disconnected from popular culture that I was entirely unaware of it, despite being a fan of sci fi, until I caught a few episodes in college. And I do mean a few- two, I believe, both MOTWs from the middle seasons, which didn't make enough of impression to get me watching on my own. It wasn't until years later that I became a fan- and it happened, as I said, when I had the flu. My then-partner was also sick, and we were posted up in the guest bedroom to avoid contaminating our usual bed- a strange decision, given that we were both afflicted, but neither of us was thinking clearly. We were sleeping in fits and starts, dragging ourselves downstairs periodically to make tea, and it seemed an excellent time to take advantage of a free week's trial of Hulu Plus. And so, The X-Files.

I don't know what time it was, but it felt like the middle of the night.  I was disconnected from all the usual rhythms of daily life, lying on a pile of pillows in the guest bedroom with my thoughts drifting, trying to ignore all of the unpleasant bodily sensations that go along with flu, and it was winter so the view out the window was usually dark. There's a sense of unreality that can come when you're ill, or at least when I am, as though the world shrinks down to the room, fever and chills and tea and tissues, like the feeling of drifting under the surface of consciousness, not quite asleep but not really awake either. And so my experience of season one was oddly dreamlike, vivid, slightly surreal--my state of mind was curiously appropriate, I think now, for the show's mixture of the strange and eerie with the mundane--and that initial impression has stayed with me. Perhaps there's a touch of fever to my obsessive love for The X-Files.

I had hoped to have a fic to post, but although I've been trying to improve I am truly terrible at finishing stories. I'm quite proficient at starting them, though, and so what I have to offer is a selection of eleven fragments arrayed in order from pre-series to post. Some of these represent my very first attempts at writing these characters, others are recent ideas; some were inspired by moments in canon, some by prompts and tumblr posts, and some by who knows what corner of my brain. Only one of them (1) has been posted anywhere before. I hope to develop at least one of them into a complete story in time for the free-for-all on Mulder's birthday.

Things Without Remedy
[identity profile] heartequals.livejournal.com
You don't care what these people have sacrificed over the last nine years - what's been lost to their cause. You make a mockery of it, gladdened it proves your point.

I should say it up front: The Truth is not one of my favorite episodes. It may, in fact, be one of my least favorite episodes. It's a long annoying clip show with ghosts as major plot devices.

But where it fails to please me as a series finale, it delights me as an episode in which a lot of truths are laid bare. The conspiracy. The mythology. The characters we'd forgotten about and the sacrifices they made. The reminder of what an incredible journey we've been on. There is a lot in the episode that makes the world in which The X-Files is set just that much richer. (I would suggest reading a transcript of the episode. It's a good read.)

Without further tl;dr: two fanmixes )

Summary: Jeffrey was three years old when his mother disappeared for the first time.
Notes: At the end


Jeffrey was three years old when his mother disappeared for the first time. The night before, she read him "Good Night, Moon," tucked him in, and kissed him, just as always. But when he walked into his parents' bedroom the next morning, she was gone. His father told him simply that she was sick, and had to go to the hospital so she could get well again. She would be back soon, he said, but until she was well, Mrs. Monroe was going to stay with them. He didn't have a clear recollection of what happened after that; in fact, he didn't have many memories of his early childhood at all, but he did remember that first time: seeing her empty, neatly made-up bed, his father standing beside it, smoking a cigarette. He thought he might have cried, but he wasn't certain.

As one of the last posters, I feel it is my duty to say that April 2009 has turned out to be one of the best months ever thanks to this community. Great job, everyone!

Now, I present Part I of II of my entries dedicated to "Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man", which, in my opinion, is one of the most underrated episodes of Season 4. (Part II will come later in the form of an episode cap, like what we *used* to do on [livejournal.com profile] the_caps_files.)

TITLE: Lies We Tell
AUTHOR: [profile] baltic_beauty 
DISCLAIMER: If I owned them, I wouldn’t be up to my eyeballs in college loans. So. Yeah. 
SUMMARY: A set of three “drabbles” (I prefer to call them “character profiles”) about the Cigarette-Smoking Man (CSM). Although not exactly missing scenes, they are based strongly on the events of “Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man”.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to [personal profile] memories_child, for the absolute best beta ever. Beth, without you, the finished product would be nowhere near as polished as it turned out to be. I owe you about seven drinks when you come to the States. And [livejournal.com profile] riddledfate, thank you so much for the read-through and subsequent confidence boost. You are my constant.

And yet, the only person who can't escape him is himself. )
