Author has written 33 stories for X-Files.
I have been a devotee of the X-files since it premiered. I was a teenager at the time and it was something I could watch with my dad. The shows were edge of your seat kind of stuff, and I became enraptured with the myth-arc and the amazing characters. I continued watching the show through its demise. I am a proud owner of the latest X-Files movie: are you? Sales drive the decisions on whether we'll be treated to a colonization movie or not.
I have been writing fanfiction for the X-files since 2000 at the close of a season that really left us hanging. I was a college student and it was enjoyable to work on my fanfic as opposed to my papers for school. I began to publish my stories to my own website around 2005. This is my first foray into posting stories to a public site. I am continually writing new stories, and most of my stories take place within the same universe, diverging with canon after season 7.
I am an unabashed Shipper and my stories reflect this. Be forewarned! In reading other people's fanfic, I usually like UST and carefully thought out character development. Hopefully you will find some of that in my own writings. It's not all romance though--just like the show itself was a delicious mix of chemistry and smart smart story telling. So, I've thrown in humor, angst, and plot.
I would love feedback. My husband has provided encouraging reviews of the stories I've let cross his desk, but he isn't entirely unbiased.
I am a professor in the humanities and have a background in English literature. I am perfectly capable of constructing grammatically correct sentences and I penalize my students for their failings in that regard. However, you will find my stories often play with the English language. I do this for several reasons. 1) I am conveying fragmented thoughts, which were not formed by the characters as complete sentences. 2) As a method of emphasis. 3) These characters are modern sorts, who don't always speak correctly. 4) I believe fiction writers do have some rein in the regard to the use of grammar. I hope it comes across to the reader that this is done intentionally, as I too am annoyed when I read a fanfic that is a mess grammatically--it takes you right out of the action.
My stories change point of view between Mulder and Scully. I don't do this mid-paragraph. I consistently use line-break dividers to show there is a change of POV ahead to limit confusion. I never write in the first person, although we occasionally get the private thoughts of Mulder and Scully delivered as direct quotes. My narrator is third-person omniscient, because for me this best reflects the mood of the show, while allowing us better insight into the characters' emotions than we get in a typical episode.
Mulder and Scully can be difficult to give voice to, because it has been so beautifully done by their creators. I hope I come close to doing them justice.
