09 November 2014

I confess... it's November. This month always brings back memories of my favorite pair figure skaters Ekatarina Gordeeva & Sergei Grinkov. On my birthday, 20 November, in 1995 Sergei Grinkov passed away. I can still remember the day and the days following his death as if they happened yesterday. No figure skating pair in the history of the sport (and I've seen skating from the 1960s to present day) has captured my heart as much as G&G. I learned the Russian language because Russia is the country Katia and Sergei were from. I read her book "My Sergei: A Love Story" when it first came out, and saw she had written a passage for Sergei in the Russian language, and I just had to learn the language so I could understand what she said. I still get choked up and teary eyed whenever I watch the Celebration of a Life show in which Katia skated, for the first time without Sergei, to Mahler's "Symphony No.5 in C sharp minor - 4. Adagietto (Sehr langsam)". It still breaks my heart today. I made a little banner to use over at the SoX Forum, it's not much, but to me it is very close to my heart.



19 October 2014

I confess... it is mid-October, and I did not stick to my New Year Resolution to create one Photoshop collage per month. I will try my best to carry out this same resolution in 2015. I really haven't done any actual photo collaging since January, and the other day I was chatting over on the Serenity of X Facebook Group about how I was thinking of making a Doggett/Scully collage using screen captures from TV shows that Robert and Gillian have been in this year, to portray what a Doggett/Scully collage of them in 2014 would look like, and the collage I put together late last night and early this morning is just that! I hope you enjoy it. Even with age on them these two look stunning together. Here's to hoping that in next month's IDW "The X-Files" Season 10 comics that will mean we'll finally get some good Doggett/Scully interaction!

22 August 2014

i get accused a lot of not actually being a fan of "the x-files" series. i make comments that are negative about the show (its characters, relationships, and its creator). and i do agree to some extent that i sound like i absolutely hate the series. however, i only criticize the series and all the things that i think went wrong with it because the huge x-files fan in my heart wanted better things for a series that crumbled under -imo- terrible direction of storytelling. i wanted to be able to say that "the x-files" series is one of the absolute best series i've ever watched. i wanted to be able to list "the x-files" on my list of "best shows ever produced in my life". i wanted to be able to say that the series came full circle. i wanted to be able to say that the characters only got better as the series progressed. i wanted to be able to say that the relationships of the series added depth and true emotion to the stories being told. i wanted to be able to say that i love every single episode of the series. i wanted to be able to rewatch all the episodes. i wanted to be able to not have a list of "never watch that craptastic episode ever again". but the sad fact is that "the x-files" did not live up to its potential, it hammered itself into an early grave. yes, it has its brilliant moments. yes, the characters were likable. yes, the relationships present in the series between all characters added to the stories. but... these positives were not, imo, consistent throughout. the main story arc of the series was never brought to a conclusion. in this sense, in my eyes, "the x-files" failed as a successful tv series. ratings numbers, how many fans active online, etc. -to me- do not account towards the success of the series as a story. do i hate "the x-files"? no. do i love "the x-files"? yes, but not so blindly that i will tell anyone i run into, in the xf fandom or outside of it, that it is the best thing i've ever watched on tv. i'll always be a x-phile, but it will always be a little bittersweet.

9 August 2014

I confess... I made this Scully (Dana Doggett, because yeah, in my happy ending for the character of "The X-Files" Dana Scully left Mulder and wound up in love and married to John Doggett) manipulation because it's Gillian Anderson's birthday today!

6 August 2014

I confess... I haven't done enough Doggett/Scully manipulations in the past year. I apologize for that. My latest manipulation fixes a major episodic promotional still from season 9 of "The X-Files", the episode "Release". In the original image Doggett's obnoxious sidekick is in the photo, I do believe that adding Scully to this images makes it so much better. Enjoy!

Also, Robert Patrick is going to be in my hometown at the end of September for the Alamo City Comic Con. I'm putting together a gift from SoXers and visitors to my sites (Semper Fi, Dana Doggett), if you'd like to get a letter to Robert please drop by Semper Fi, doggettscully.com and check out what I'm accepting for the gift. I hope you take part! Thank you!


16 July 2014

I confess... I wish that I had made this dustjacket into a desktop wallpaper. I will try to accomplish this sometime soon. In the meantime I have a new fanfic (in response to the Semper Fi "Summer Vacation" Fanfic Challenge! The story is called "Aphrodisia". It's Doggett/Scully, and it's a casefile taking place on the Mediterranean island (country) of Cyprus - one of my favorite places I've ever visited (and yes, the pizza at Las Palmas restaurant is the best pizza I've ever had in my life).

Dana sits alone on the balcony, a journal in her hand as she stares out at the sea. As she watches the sun set over the tourist city of Limassol, she finds herself drifting away with daydreams of taking a long, romantic walk on the beach with John one of these nights. How he might find his way to take her hand in his, or how she might find a way to slip her arm around his waist. The warm sea breeze caressing through her hair as he turns to her, gently cupping her face in his hands as he leans toward her with his eyes closed to...

She hears John turn off the shower inside the apartment. She shakes her mind of the thoughts she was having, and concentrates on what she is writing in her journal. She lifts her eyes mischievously and smirks. (read full story)

5 April 2014

I confess... I'm one day late in wishing my favorite "The X-Files" fictional character a happy birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHN DOGGETT! For more Doggetty things, check out Semper Fi. In other news, I have a new fanfic written in response to the Semper Fi March 2014 Fanfic Challenge. I call it "Enough Is Enough". Enjoy!

With gritted teeth and his face twisted in anger, John Doggett waded through the waist-deep mud, his eyes trained on the solid ground not five feet away from him. It wasn't so much the fact that he was covered in mud that had him so angry, no, it was the knowledge that his red-headed partner had witnessed his involuntary bath.

4 March 2014

I confess... I didn't make any collages last month, but I blame that completely on the 2014 Sochi Olympics. For me the Olympic Games (summer and winter) are like a major holiday. I decorate, and I watch as much of the coverage that I can, and I ignore all other fandoms for the two weeks that the Olympics are taking place. So now it is March and I am finally posting a Doggett/Scully (friendship/partnership) fanfic that I wrote as a response to the Semper Fi "Invocation" fanfic challenge. It's called "Just Like Billy". Also, I made a 1650x1080px desktop wallpaper of Doggett and Scully. Enjoy!

And a little note to people who share my artwork without permission and people who use my artwork on their pages/groups/websites without permission... NOTE: You may NOT use my artwork: collages/wallpapers/manipulations/etc. for your own use in other groups, pages, websites, etc. I do not give permission for others to use my creations. Please also do NOT re-post my creations, I will take the time to do that if I want the graphics to be shared elsewhere. Thank you for understanding.

"You lost someone, just like Billy."

Dana Scully stands in the elevator heading up to the third floor of the J. Edgar Hoover Building. She closes her eyes and shakes her head, trying to rid her mind from hearing Sharon Pearl's words echoing over and over, days after the Underwood case in Dexter, Oklahoma came to a close. Perhaps her curiosity is due to being an expectant (worried, paranoid, concerned) mother, maybe it stems from having heard Mulder tell stories of his sister's disappearance for so many years. At best, all she can figure is that her new
partner, John Doggett, lost a child "just like Billy."

This revelation was a punch in the stomach. Ever since Mulder's disappearance she had
behaved as if she were the only person in the world who had lost someone close to her. It
surprised her that Doggett lost someone too, and now she felt bad for treating him terribly
during the case.

10 January 2014

I confess... my 2014 resolution includes creating at least one piece of Photoshop artwork per month this year. Last year I made
2 collages, 1 manipulation and 3 wallpapers. That's really sad. Today I bring you my first Photoshop collages of 2014! The first is from "The X-Files" episode 4x15 "Kaddish". The second is a Doggett/Scully collage titled "Let Her Go" (lyrics from the Passenger song of the same title). Happy New Year!
