I loved it, but my wireless mouse hated it. It gave out three times. I stand corrected. It gave out four times. (And geez I have realized I need to lay off the smut).

Um... sorry I broke your computer?

*squeees at your icon* They so did. Mulder and Scully are the fucking industry standard of 'ship. My sister and I caught an early-season episode of X-Files and she was all "THAT! THAT is sexual tension!" After they just got into a car and started driving all talking about a case totally professionally.

I think my sister just made that point to illustrate how crazy she thinks I am for squeaking madly at even the most grasping-at-straws Sam/Jack moments and hyperventilating whenever Sheppard and Weir are in the same screen shot together... but, it's STILL TRUE! Mulder and Scully rock.

Yeah, Mulder and Scully bring back the most shippy memories. They kept trying to sell us on the whole platonic relationship stuff, but we shippers out waited them. Even when you got the books out by completely different authors, it was determined you couldn't write Mulder and Scully without the shippy. It was just a part of them. Period. (Realizing she is babbling)

I'm wondering my beta hasn't gone crazy from me watching Stargate SG-1 with her on AIM. I tell her about all the shippy because I have no one else to tell (this is why I need to stop having HP friends all over). Sorry I just like started typing and it got long...

*at icon* EMILY!!!


Damn. You know what? It really sucks to be a kid on The X-Files. It's just bad news.

But I digress.

And TOTALLY! about Mulder and Scully being inseparable from cute shippiness. The X-Files was SO wonderful at the UST because (and while) TPTB fought it every step of the way.

The SG-1 moments of 'shippy is, oddly (since it's kind of canon), much more inferred. "Oh my God that could be 'ship if he means it like this and if she looks that way for THAT reason!" Which totally doesn't mean it's any less cool, just that it requires more work on our parts to see it ;). Mulder and Scully just... were. It's all:

Mulder: "So, Scully, I have this completely professional thing to tell you about this guy who got murdered and is all dead."
Scully: "So I should do an autopsy?"
Mulder: "Yep."
Everyone Watching The Show: "SQUEEEE!"
