Um, hello! I'm Cari, and, uh, I like the X-Files? But I don't like spoilers?

It never occurred to me to introduce myself.. heh!

I'm Mary and I started this community in a fit of spoilerphobic madness...

Um, I've been a Phile for over 3 years now, but it feels like this show has always been a part of my life.

I was one of the few that were cautiously optimistic about the movie...

I was in Vancouver when they were shooting; we could never find the set, but we did steal production signs in the middle of the night. Fun times ;)
aidy on July 11th, 2008 01:47 pm (UTC)
Hi Mary!!
I am cautiously optimistic too! I hate all the negativity I see. People who say they like the show but then won't even give it a chance.
All the letters I can writewendelah1 on July 11th, 2008 07:02 am (UTC)
My name is Wendy. I love The X-Files and I hate spoilers.(Hi, Wendy!) I watched a little bit of the show at the beginning of the series, on and off. I liked it but the rest of my family did not so I didn't become a serious viewer until 2005.

I actually started watching again in order to understand the fan fiction. I know, I am truly weird. I started watching the re-runs on the SciFi Channel, then I started taping the reruns on late night TNT. I knew I was in serious trouble when I started staying up late to watch the show while I was taping it.

When the slimsets were released, my husband took pity on me and bought them for me, so I didn't have to stay up past my bedtime to tape the show. (He is a great husband!)

I am very excited about the movie; in fact, I have already bought my tickets. I am not at all concerned about whether or not Mulder and Scully are together during the movie. I just want a great film, that will make a lot of money and start a new movie franchise. I am already looking ahead to XF3, Trust No One-- At All-- Ever! and XF4, 2012: The Future is Here, Where Else Would It Be?.

I will be promoting this community in xf_book_club and in my own journal as well.
aidy on July 11th, 2008 01:46 pm (UTC)
lol at your movie titles.
It's so not fair you already have your tickets!
I'm looking forward to the straight-to-DVD "The X-Files: ATTHS."
aidy on July 11th, 2008 01:45 pm (UTC)
I'm staying as spoiler free as possible! Apparently something hit the 'net last night and I'm so afraid I'll see it...
I'm Adrienne, an x-phile from Iowa...I've been watching XF since Pilot. I went on a pilgrimage to Vancouver wtih two other x-phile friends in the nineties and it rocked my world hardcore. I've also filmed scenes from FTF with my action figures with one of the above-mentioned obsessed freaks. I used to mod an anti-fowley mailing list (AFML) because I hated that skanky bitch so much.
That's my life in a nutshell...x-files wise anyway.
The Girl Who Waited: Watch the Skiesoutintherain on July 11th, 2008 01:49 pm (UTC)
Hey aidy!!!

I know... I'm so terrified, I'm just sticking in the Present and Future folder on Haven to post in the London premiere threads and am hoping against all hope that the spoilers don't make their way into my line of vision...

My pilgrimage was this January and it rocked equally! XD

Firework Rocket: XF - i want to believebook232 on July 11th, 2008 05:02 pm (UTC)
Uhm... hi. I'm Book, and I'm obsessed with the X-Files. (Support group: "Hi, Book!")
God, I'm so glad I found this place and that I'm not the only one who's afraid of spoilers. Especially since apparantly something big leaked last night, and I'm so freaking tempted to click on those LJ-cuts, but on the other hand I know I'd hate myself if I did. I know a few small things, as in: I saw the trailer, and I saw promo pictures. And that's all I need to know. Really.

I'm so paranoid, I'm actually thinking of creating a spoiler-free friendsgroup for the next three weeks. Which would mean I'd have to avoid some of my friends, but that's probably the safest way? I don't know. I'm definitely staying away from sites like Haven or XFN for now. Damn, the next three weeks are going to be tough.

OMG I'm rambling! Way to leave a good first impression, girl. Sheesh. Okay, I'm done. Help me to stay strong, people!
The Girl Who Waited: Clasp Handsoutintherain on July 11th, 2008 05:15 pm (UTC)
Hey Book! Glad to see ya around here!


For serious; those are insanely big spoilers as far as I'm aware....

I'll be locking out all of my non-European f-listers after the 24th, since I don't even want to see an entry titled "I loved/hated it!".. I literally don't want to know a thing.

It will be tough, but I'm hoping that this place will be busy and fun and thus keep us sane ;)

Heh, well it's hardly your first impression... and rambling is always welcome ;)

And I am Angie! Die-hard X-Phile since the very beginning (even if I drifted there for a few years after the show ended), and someone who is usually the biggest spoiler whore in the universe, but who has realized that she enjoys things so much more when being spoiler free, and has thus decided to steer clear of all things newish about the XF until she's seen the frakking movie. So yeah! That's me! (FJAKDJKADFAD, I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE MOOOOOVIIIIIIE!!!!)

So hiii! *waves*

Nice to meet you all

Hey and welcome... hope the comm is a fun place to be! :)

Nicola: birthday!Scullyquietreflection on July 13th, 2008 04:07 pm (UTC)
Hi! I'm Nicola. I'm a pretty new fan compared to most, having only been watching since January '07. But I fell completely in love with the show and I've been so excited for the movie--without wanting to know anything about the plot. So here I am :) It will be awesome to have a place to come without needing to be paranoid that I'm going to stumble across something. And who can say no to daily viewing parties?!
The Girl Who Waited: Scully Umbrellaoutintherain on July 13th, 2008 07:38 pm (UTC)
Well hey there newbie ;)

So glad to see another new fan.. this show just never gets old ;)

Hopefully the VPs will be fun! XD

hi Im Jupi.
I have just started been in the fandom but I have seen season 1-4 plus the movie than I stopped and now recently started seeing seasons 5-7 plus the finale series episode of season 9 and William sorry those were the episodes that interested me from season 9.
The Girl Who Waited: B&W Scullyoutintherain on July 14th, 2008 01:44 pm (UTC)
Hey and welcome! XD

Haha, those are pretty much the only interesting episodes in season 9 anyway ;)

Hello! I've been a fan for 15 years. I've just finished a whirlwind tour of Vancouver where I stalked filming locations for a week. :) Obsessed am I? YES!

I'd love to join the group, pretty pretty please. :)

Hi! I've been a huge fan since '98 and CANNOT WAIT until the new movie! I want to get my hands on one of the movie posters--I've been seeing them on subway walls and drooling. I have also been watching all of the seasons in order--right now I'm halfway through season 8, of which I only saw a little bit on the air. I've sene very little of 9 so I'm looking forward to that as well.
The Girl Who Waited: David & Gillianoutintherain on July 14th, 2008 01:47 pm (UTC)
Wow '98.. you've been around far longer than I have... congrats! XD

You can get a hold of the movie posters on eBay fairly easily I think! :)

hi! i'm taz and i would LOVE to join this community! It sounds perfect for me! I started watching about a year ago when I watched FTF and decided to watch a few episodes. Then I bought the box set and now i am obsessed! I managed to get one of my friends obsessed as well and now like everyone else for the new film!
The Girl Who Waited: ATTHSoutintherain on July 14th, 2008 01:48 pm (UTC)

The Girl Who Waited: Miracleoutintherain on July 15th, 2008 05:19 pm (UTC)
Thanks for joining! :)

I watched the seasons in a completely spazzed order aswell.. Memento Mori was my first episode, and I watched season 4 on tv, then bought season 7, 8, 6, 5, 9 and then 1, 2 and 3... utterly random LOL!!!!

I hope you make it with your rewatch! :)

ennetee: xf2normaltrouble on July 15th, 2008 03:32 am (UTC)
I've been watching X Files since the first season- in 1993. I was a sporadic watcher for 2-3 seasons, then got caught up around 1997, and yet--- I've not seen season 9!

I am also an on and off MSR shipper, because things happen to people's relationships -- they get all caught up in intensity, then sometimes drift apart after day to day normalcy comes around. So I've mixed feelings about whether the relationship lasted post 1-2 years after the Truth. But that's my opinion.

However, most of my favorite eppies can be considered very shippy, therefore, the off and on.

I think I've remained sort of spoiler free, I have lots of practice. I do not have cable or TiVo, so watch my TV shows 3-9 minths after they're out there, from Netflix.

I'll try not to be spoilery myself.

The Girl Who Waited: Scully Umbrellaoutintherain on July 15th, 2008 05:23 pm (UTC)
Believe me, you can live without season 9.. my friend is admirably making her way through it as part of her rewatch at the moment and it's so torturous...

We have plenty of noromos, moderately enthusiastic shippers and flaily shippers here, so there's a good balance and everyone fits :) You might find some of the episode commentary shippy, but you need enver worry about having your own option of it... :)

infrared4infrared4 on July 16th, 2008 10:38 am (UTC)
Hello, I'm in Scotland and counting down the days until August 1st - I'm also always horribly tempted when I know of a spoiler source, even though I really don't want to know!
I've been a fan since half way through the first season in the UK, back in 1994, which makes me feel very old now. I fell for XF completely - I've loved other TV shows but not in anything like the same way - glad there are others the same out there.
The Girl Who Waited: One in Five Billionoutintherain on July 18th, 2008 07:04 am (UTC)

I get tempted too... and I was reading spoilers for the first few months; things that were leaked from the set and stuff.. but it really didn't give me anything on the plot thankfully... and now I'm hardcore spoiler free! XD

Greetings from planet earth
Hi there! My name is Paula, I've just created a Live Journal account, because I desperately need an escape from all those spoilery conversations out there. That is one reason why I would like to join the community. The other reason is because the movie here comes out on August 14th (Argentina), so I would be happy to read you all, and comment whenever I can =) Besides I am in love with English Language and I'm trying to get out of my bubble to practice a little, and I think there's no better way to do it, than with fellow X-Philes ^^ You will see I have no entries at all, and I really hope to change that once I know what to write in my journal. This is my first time! I love The X-Files so much, there's no enough words to explain how much I love and respect this show. It's just a way of life, at least my life =) I would love to be part of this community, but I'll understand if I can't because of my newbie status. I think that's all! Best wishes to you all!

Hey all.
I'm Gitte, a 19 yo Belgian. I am very proud of myself for remaining unspoiled so far, and would like to keep that so until I can see the movie.
I made a post on my journal today on how I got hooked on the X-Files, so I won't do that here again.
I applied to join, so please approve :)
