Helen of Troy’s face launched a thousand ships. Mulder and Scully launched ten thousand fan fics.
The relationship between the man of faith and woman of science simmered warm for most of the series, bubbled up occasionally, but never came to the boil we wanted. But, here in DC, a city packed with singles, we especially celebrate that most elusive of qualities: chemistry.
Then there were the actual X-Files: shapeshifters, clones, ghosts, vampires, lycanthropes, telepaths, you name it. Evey week we watched Mulder and Scully leave their dimly-lit basement office in the FBI building to discover a different side of America. And it was freaky.
And of course there were aliens too. “The truth is out there,” Mulder swore, but the truth around the alien conspiracy was murkier and more sinister than we expected. As Mulder and Scully moved closer to understanding the mystery, it enveloped their lives. Both were abducted for a time. Scully offered her baby up for adoption to protect it from the constant surveillance in her life. Mulder was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in a kangaroo court. After a narrow escape, Mulder and Scully learn The Truth: The alien invasion begins 2012. Shit, we didn’t want to know.
