Fierce Fangirl Fridays are put on by the wonderful and lovely Jackie @ Too Much of a Booknerd. If you’re not following her already, seriously, go do it, because she’s amazing. Now, what is Fierce Fangirl Fridays? Basically, it’s where you fangirl/boy over anything – that’s right, each week you pick a different thing you’re fangirling about the moment and JUST RUN FREE WITH THE FEELS. Only rule? Just pingback to her post here! It’s so easy that it hurts. 😄
This week I will be fangirling about…
The X Files
I had always been casually interested in the X Files (if you haven’t caught on yet, I’m into anything supernatural/paranormal in the real world like ghosts, Bigfoot, and aliens – I’m the most interested sort of non-believer out there, I think XD). I’m not sure why I never took the big dive into The X File fandom, but I think this year has conspired against me to create a huge X Files fan.
First, I was astounded by the mini series that came back earlier this year. IT WAS SO GOOD I CAN’T EVEN PUT IT IN WORDS. Then I discovered a few old episodes and reminded what an astounding show it is. And then I discovered…there were YA books. That’s right – YA books showcasing the origins stories of my two favorite FBI agents. HOW COOL IS THAT?
It’s nagging me to read it since the moment I got it, but I wasn’t quite in the X Files mood. But I started it last night, and OMIGOSH, IT WAS EVERYTHING I WANTED FROM AN X FILE STORY AND MORE. OMG OMG OMG.
It was Fox Mulder at his finest. It showed so many little references to the original series with cameos from some of the characters. It showed the psychology. IT HAD ITS OWN INTRIGUING STORIES. OMG, I LOVED IT SO MUCH.
Which then prompted me to say, screw blogging, investigate where I could go down an X File spiral, and then watched one of their movies all while plotting when I could start reading Scully’s story. BECAUSE THERE IS ONE FOR HER TOO, AND SCULLY IS AMAZING.
So, now I’m back in the fandom life yet again, and there are like 10 seasons of X Files so I could be here for a while. Welp.
