wendelah1: (Dana Scully - love)

I know it's only Thursday the 13th here in my time zone but since it's just after midnight in London and it's been Friday for hours and hours already in Australia, I am declaring [livejournal.com profile] scully_fest officially open.

The rewatch starts tonight in my timezone with "Beyond the Sea." Check the schedule post for your timezone and don't forget to cast your votes for the TBD on February 23.

Back in the day, there was an X-Files community, meaning a mailing list, called Scullyfic. In 2001, the list administrator Jill Selby issued a challenge: write a 155 word story about Dana Scully. You can read the stories that resulted at Scully in 155. The fics are not all exactly 155 words: some are a little longer, some shorter.

In honor of her upcoming 50th birthday, we thought it would be fun to issue the same challenge to the [livejournal.com profile] scully_fest members. You can post the stories as a comment to this post, either in a comment or a link. You can post your story on your day if you signed up for one. Or if you'd rather, you can wait for her birthday free-for-all day.

Oh heck, post whenever the muse strikes, but let's try to stay close to the 155 word limit.

Remember, if you track the post, you'll get all of the comments to your email or inbox.

In conclusion, SCULLY FEST!

"Beyond the Sea" is my favorite episode from season one. I love the role reversal of Scully being the believer and Mulder the skeptic. Brad Dourif gives a terrific performance as the serial killer Luther Lee Boggs. Gillian Anderson gets a script that shows off her range as an actor. We get interesting back story for Dana Scully, and new insight into her character.

Writer/s: Glen Morgan & James Wong
Director: David Nutter
Originally aired: January 7, 1994 (in the US) – 5th May 1994 (in Australia)

Synopsis: Scully wakes up to a vision of her father sitting in her living room, a hour after he died at home of a heart attack. After attending his funeral, she journeys with Mulder to see serial murderer Luther Lee Boggs. He claims to have psychic abilities, which have given him information about the whereabouts of two kidnapped victims. Mulder is certain Boggs is a fraud. After seeing another vision of her father, this time during their interview with Boggs, Scully is no longer sure what to believe.

Most Memorable Quote:
SCULLY: You set us up. You're in on this with Lucas Henry. This was a trap for Mulder because he helped put you away. Well, I came here to tell you that if he dies because of what you've done, four days from now, no one will be able to stop me from being the one that will throw the switch and gas you out of this life for good, you son of a bitch!

Fanfiction:
Silver Tongued Devil by ML - [livejournal.com profile] zinnia03. This is part of a series but it works as a standalone.
I Must Down to the Sea Again by [livejournal.com profile] maidenjedi. Summary: Bill Scully, Sr., and the loves of his life.
In the Family of Things by [livejournal.com profile] tree. Post-episode for Beyond the Sea. A reunion and a farewell.
Dance by Dith. Not a post-ep for "Beyond the Sea." Instead, it's set during the hiatus between the end of season one and the beginning of season two. The X-Files are shut down. Scully is back doing autopsies and teaching; Mulder is stuck in his cubicle, listening to reel after reel of audio surveillance tape. Out of the blue, Mulder gets a call from an old friend who wants him to come to South Street in Philadelphia to investigate a murder--off the books.
