In response to The Daily Post.
When I was in my twenties, I never missed an episode of The X-Files. I was a shipper, meaning I was focussed on the relationship between Mulder and Scully. And of course there was this wonderful dialogue in “Amor fati”:
Mulder: Scully, I was like you once. I didn’t know who to trust. Then I… I chose another path… another life, another fate, where I found my sister. The end of my world was unrecognizable and upside down. There was one thing that remained the same. You were my friend, and you told me the truth. Even when the world was falling apart, you were my constant. My touchstone.
Scully: And you are mine.
When it was decided there would be new episodes on TV, I was thrilled. I enjoyed the two X-Files movies, but sitting in our living room with my husband and watching Mulder and Scully bickering on TV brings back the feeling of twenty years ago. So much has changed since I watched the first episode. I never was completely out of touch with the fandom, there was always wonderful fan fiction to read.
In Germany, we are a little bit late and season 11 will be aired in March. So please do not disturb us on Wednesday evenings, while we are glued to our TV and feel young again!
