This week's author has plenty on her shelf to keep you entertained, meet WildwingSuz. With 130 stories published on A03, you'll be busy for a while! WildwingSuz tackles all kinds of topics from werewolves, to an a/u of Mulder and Scully as old-time private investigators, to the effects "all things" has on Mulder and Scully's relationship. And if you're looking for something more, er, adult, well let's just say you'll find plenty of that as well!
We talked with WildwingSuz about writing and The X-Files.
How long have you been a Phile?
I didn’t watch the X-Files until 2008, although I was aware of the show when it aired. Everyone who knew me told me to watch it, but I was raising 3 children by myself and couldn’t afford a VHS to record episodes. Then my friend Silke mentioned that I should watch it in 2008 and I began renting the DVDs from Netflix. I watched the entire 9 seasons in 8 months, working full-time during most of it.
What was your first episode?
The pilot. I was instantly addicted.
How long have you been writing fic?
Since I finished watching the entire series, November of 2008. I feel very bad that I missed the heyday of XF fanfic, though I certainly enjoy reading all the stories.
What inspired you to start writing?
I used to write ST:TOS fanfiction in the 1980s, and I have written several novels, one of which was published. When I started reading fanfic on Gossamer, I realized that I could do it, too.

It wouldn't be a Friday with a new fan vid. This week we are featuring one from IceandFire who never fails to make us sigh with shippery enthusiasm. Enjoy!
This week's episode of Not Another X-Files Podcast podcast is filled with some feline frenzy when hosts Carolyn and Vanessa talk Season 3's "Teso Dos Bichos." They talk science in the absence of Amanda which devolves into pseudo science. The girls discuss Egyptology and write out new kids' songs.
You can find the episode here and find it on iTunes, Podbay, PocketCast, or others.

It's FanArt Wednesday again! This week’s chosen artist is Temari Nara from Algeria. You can connect with Temari on Tumblr.
Here's a little about Temari:
1. When did you become an X-Phile?
I started watching the show in 1994, I was 8. (Oh god, I feel old now!! LOL!!!)
2. What is the first episode you watched?
I think the first episode I came across was "Ice". It's still one of my favorites.
3. What was your favorite part of the revival?
This is a hard one, but I think it was seeing Mulder as a dad, it was heartbreaking. And especially since we never got to know what kind of family life he wanted for the three of them.
It's the attack of the flying puss on this week's episode of The XX Files podcast! Hosts Allison and Courtney dodge the flying yuck while talking Season 2's "F. Emasculata." They'll explose such lovely topics as how to deal with a bad case of the pimples, the issues with the American postal service, and what new energy drink craze is sweepting the world.
You can find the episode here and remember strong language ahead! As the creators themselves say, this podcast can be "f*cking obscene!"
