Perhaps we should just call our regular Friday feature #AllTheFeelsFriday. This week's selection certainly fits into that category. Invisigoth has a new vid out, Perfect, and it's pretty dang close to perfect if feels are what you're in the market for. Ed Sheeran's song, "Perfect" hits all the right notes, the editing is smooth and the vid features all the fan favorite scenes.
Go ahead, hit play, and get your Friday fix of feelings. Enjoy and have a happy #FanvidFriday!
Now that we have an air date, take a look at these new cast photos to go with it. FOX has shared new images of David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, and William B. Davis in character. Check out the gallery for all four characters in their high resolution glory after the jump.
I was first introduced to this week's author through the XAPen list, but even if you don't remember that particular piece of fandom history you're probably familiar with this week's author anyway. And if you're not, you should be! Meet MaybeAmanda. She's a long-time author and fan of the show who has written masterful casefiles as well as shorter pieces that are a punch in the gut. All of her stories are well worth your reading time, but here are a few of my favorites.
"Running Lessons" goes AU after the events of Season 8 and is an amazing ride. The summary calls for "twists, turns, and we hope, the completely unexpected," and MaybeAmanda and co-author Spookey247 definitely deliver. I don't want to give anything away but you know a story is good when you find yourself yelling WHAT?! while reading. It's not an easy ready, but as the authors point out it is categorized as MSR so keep that in mind as you go.
This one is one of my favorite post-"Existence" fics out there. Short and sweet, but so "Mulder and Scully" it hurts. I keep thinking one day our heroes will learn to truly talk to each other, but "The Answer" perfectly captures that hesitancy and uncertainty from Season 8.
If you just straight up need a laugh, go peruse the XF Fanfic Cookbook. I remember looking through this back in the day laughed my butt off when I realized it was still there!
We talked with MaybeAmanda about writing, The X-Files, and longevity in a fandom that's now 24 years strong.
