I get to be Randi's S?!
this is such an honour
X-Files fandom is where the term "shipping" came from in the first place!
I'm a little bit of a fandom history nerd, and for anyone else who is interested in such things I recommend the books Enterprising Women by Camille Bacon-Smith and Boldly Writing by Joan Marie Verba.
I'm amazed being my S has become a coveted position. I'm going to have to watch my back from now on, aren't I? Don't think I've forgotten you're the reason I got a route in OZZO OZZO SENSATION PLUS. Still laughing about that.
YES, YES IT WAS. I LAUGHED SO HARD WHEN I FOUND OUT.
Also, adding those to my To Watch List.
I don't know what's going on now either.
No see "shipping" came from when people were arguing about Mulder and Scully and there were "relationshippers" who wanted them to be in a romance and I think "noromos" or something who didn't. (Also, we're watching the first season of X-Files in the Sci-Fi house at my school and everyone is going "how the hell did they stretch the tension for six seasons")
/knows this from TvTropes despite having only been into the actual X-Files for a year or so/
The X-Files is awesome, go watch it, revel in the best partnership ever. Also, do tell me if you think Mulder and Scully's relationship should stay platonic or turn romantic, because where I stand from, I don't care anymore, they are just a fantastic duo.
X-Files was an odd show for me in that I liked most of the stand-alone episodes but hated the story arcs. I never really got into the fandom.
They are totally an amazing duo! I really love them and Scully is wonderful~
Elementary's Sherlock and Watson are starting to rival it some, though, because holy shit Lucy Liu and also Joan takes none of Sherlock's BS. [sorry I just had to gush to someone about that show]
Don't worry; I'll do enough back-watching for both of us in our relationship~
also technically i only got you a route in the regular ozzo ozzo sensation
see im laughing too
randi-sempai noticed me~
When did I become a sempai I feel like I missed my graduation ceremony or something.
Surprisingly, I love the whole thing despite the fact I know it's just going to drag out and go downhill as the seasons roll by. Do I care? Not particularly, considering it's the characters making the show for me, particularly Mulder and Scully.
Especially Scully. I may or may not have a fan-crush on that character and Gillian Anderson.
Yes this. I love the whole mystery, even though I know it'll just kind of sputter out...
...woah, sorry for the derail, guys.
I was more referring to:
Otherwise, I think you might appreciate Monster of the Week, a webcomic retelling of the X-Files.
I pretty much knew that actually.
Ah, this probably is a terrible idea, but I'm thinking about LPing an old game soon. Probably a really bad time for this, but the idea has really been hard to get rid of.
Since you deemed to share this with us, I must respond in a method only proper for the LP forum.
Read through the lp, and...did I even show up? I was probably too busy with my manga backlog. Sorry for not trying my best to destroy you,
Yelim and crew! I'll try harder next time~
Weren't we talking about that in the shipping thread?
W-We have a shipping thread? /rejoice
T-This is most certainly relevant to the extended definition essay I am working on (which is Shipping of all things haaaah)
Wait, is this actually for your academic studies? Cause if you can, this is one of the things I wish I'd done back then D :
Yup! It's for an Extended Definition Essay I'm doing. So, write a paper about shipping (or any topic of your choice) basically. :D
So, you could write about anything, and you chose to write about shipping?
That's why I love you. I'd never have the guts to do that.
Then just take someone else's guts! ^_^
I'm going to second Elyscape's recommendation. The art is cute, the strips are accurate and often funny, and you can tell the creator loves the show but they are still willing to poke fun at it when it does something silly or bizarre.
I love that show and both of them so much so far. Never before have I been so glad to have watched a show to spite the internet.
Appropriate summary of my reaction as well, believe me. When I said amazed, I meant it in a flat "What" manner as well because I can't compute it.
AND I KNOW HOW I'M SPENDING MY WEEKEND.
That's a wonderful idea!
(Why do people in this forum keep giving me ideas to steal other people's body parts?)
I just played this game and oh my god. The characters that I used actually acted very in character.
I love this game. So perfect.
<3 ran out of blushing GIFS but thank you anyway!
I'm not sure if anyone is looking at this anymore, but if they are, since this one has gotten kind of quiet, and I'm bad at prioritizing, realized it might be nice to post about my newest LP here. This one will still be going, don't worry, but now I have something else to do when this one is being dead.
So go here to my newest LP, Dragon Warrior Monsters!
Throw me into the ring again, please.
I could go again, since it's quiet. I have no problems in giving my place up if anyone who's never done it wants to, though.
Feel free to use me for whatever whenever, I'll consider it atonement on my part.
