I remember when X-Files aired on TV here. I also remember being too young to be allowed to watch it. But I listened to the soundtrack an awful lot and from that and what I had heard about it I formed my own image of the series. (The Swedish name is even so deeply rooted in me that I accidentally use it even when speaking English with my husband.)
 
For a few years now Kuma has suggested that we watch it because he loves it and has like collectors’ edition DVD-boxes with the series but I was never that interested. Or rather there were too many other things that I was more interested in. By now I have realized that he picks really good series, getting me hooked on Supernatural (even though it has started to disappoint me, but that’s a different story), DS9, Enterprise and so on. So now that we’re done with Enterprise (I was gonna write about that too some time…) we decided the next one would be X-Files.
 
So far I have only seen a few episodes and I’m not sure if I feel like forming an opinion just yet. I like it, definitely, but I haven’t grown up with it. I have watched the series that followed in it’s footsteps first and that makes my viewpoint a bit different. It is very interesting though. I see where some of my favorite shows are the descendants from.
 
The things I like the most are usually the ones I’m most reluctant about in the beginning though so this show does have the potential to become a favorite too. ^^

Oooh, X-Files! My very first real slash fandom... those were the days. :-)

I think you'll like some of XF very much, but the quality is very inconsistent... and the series jumps the shark entirely later in its run. But it has some very very good eps!

Also, a very compelling slash pairing. ;-)

A pairing for which, I might add, I have written a not inconsiderable number of stories. :-)

I have just watched the first four episodes so far and I’m still trying to find the pacing but I do like it. It does feel like a series I will become attached to. Kuma knows how to pick the ones I like. Usually with some good slash potential. Horrible enabler that boy. XDDDD

(Although I can’t help thinking that Mulder’s face reminds me of Baby from Dirty Dancing… ^^;;;)

Even if I hadn’t already seen the X-Files directory on you website I probably wouldn’t have been surprised that you’ve written fics for this show. ^^ I am really really looking forward to reading them though. ^^ But that reminds me, I’ve long wondered how you ended up in the JE fandom of all places?

EEEK! I have never had that association, fortunately. *g* It must be the nose...

Really? Okay, now I am curious. :-) Why do you say that?

I've wondered that too, actually. :-) I'm still not entirely sure, but I have a half-finished post on the sequence of events that led to it lying around somewhere. Maybe I should finish it one of these days! It was basically pure coincidence, a friend who slid into the fandom (though she is majorly into Jin, and Jin never interested me at all), and Junno. :-)

Actually I think it’s in the eyes and the pouty lower lip. But now that you mention it… XDDDD I kept wondering if they were related.

Why do you say that?
I don’t know. Just a feeling. Judging from the other fandoms that are represented. Or maybe. Hm… I found your LJ when you posted on jent fanfics long ago and as we know by now completely fell for your writing. ^^ First I just read the posts you had on JE and came to the conclusion from your writing that you’ve been around for a while. At the time I was so fed up with kids trying and failing to write, I hadn’t been able to find anything good to read for a while when I stumbled on your Ryo/Junno. I just had this odd idea that someone who writes a pairing that rare must be something extra. Turned out I was right. ^.~ And then I went to see what else you had written, if there might be anything I knew of. Like Utena. ^^ Which also felt a bit old school to me. In a very good way. But the way you wrote for this fandom, so very different from JE, in combination with the Supernatural that I also saw on your (at the time) fairly recent posts (that I actually have yet to read though, only read the descriptions) made me discover a new dimension, a new depth. I don’t know. Also, you seemed to have accumulated quite a few fandoms. And X-Files just fits the picture. Now that I’ve started watching it. Yeah, I know. Not a very good explanation. But it’s hard to pinpoint. It just made sense.

Maybe I should finish it one of these days!
Please do! ^^ My own way there was long and strange and I find it interesting how other people ended up in the insanity that is JE fandom. It’s so shiny and sparkly! XDDDDD
