Title: "Ambivalent Hair Day"

Summary: Scully is worried about her hair but it all works out in the end.

Scully worried about her hair. Her inner Dana thought it looked great and brought out the blue in her eyes. She had turned it red to celebrate the passing of Ethan into the possibilities of suburban life, provided he could fill the opening of fiancee.

Still, Scully was a career woman in a suit and had security issues to consider. Did the FBI frown on brilliant hair? Was it a recognition problem during stakeouts? Did AD Skinner find it unprofessional? He focused on her oddly at times. He had a powerful focus. And great abs. She yearned to ask Ellen, but Ellen knew nothing of Bureau Girl Gaffes and their cruel subtleties. God, why wasn't it all written down.

She finally asked her partner, in a partnerly way.

“Mulder, is my hair unprofessional?”

“What?” He was looking at an old porn calendar and had a line of pencils ready to launch.

She was asking this man. Well, he wore good suits. With bad ties.

“It's silly, but I dyed it red and I'm worried it's too distracting for daily duty. There's no one to ask,” she added dispiritedly.

Mulder lowered his feet and stared at her. “Scully, your hair is always well-groomed.” Was he disoriented? “Why did you dye it?”

“It had to do with my ex-boyfriend.” She immediately regretted saying that.

His eyes glinted. “Should we discuss this?”

“Of course not. Just tell me if it's too red.” Embarrassment hovered.

“Right.” Actually, Mulder looked embarrassed. “Scully, I never thought I'd say this to you, but I'm colorblind. And you appear as kind of brown. Your hair, that is.” His forehead creased. “Maybe it's been a darker brown lately?”

Scully was startled by her unforeseen gaffe. “I'd better ask Agent Henderson.” She smiled reassuringly and left.

It was later that she started pondering the driving issues.

In honor of Scully's birthday, I present this very silly genre-bending movie poster for "Milagro."

It's a riff of the poster art for "Bridget Jones's Diary", the original which can be viewed here.

For Scully's 50th [livejournal.com profile] badforthefish and I decided to do something a little different.

It ummm... didn't go according to plan and our first attempt took over 4 hours

Our second foray into the world of animation met with a little more success however.

So without further ado I bring you Scully's 50th Birthday present from Mulder. With thanks to [livejournal.com profile] badforthefish for her endless patience, string
pulling, button pushing, movement making and advice.

Happy Birthday Scully



Also our first attempt, which in hindsight was a little too adventurous.

Since I didn't have time to write a fic, here are a few demotivational posters to celebrate the event.

This is actually from Youtube and it is not my creation (props go to Sophie Brown, who made it). It's after the style of Facebook's recent "a look back" slide shows, and it's very clever:

I've been enjoying everything about Scully Fest. Thanks, mods, for putting it together, and thanks to all the contributors as well!

Three years ago on February 26, I wrote this character manifesto for [livejournal.com profile] het_reccers, which happened to nearly coincide with Dana Scully's 47th birthday. Since I am too sick to get anything new written, I thought I would go ahead and repost it. I updated the picture. There may be some new thoughts added at the end, if I think any new thoughts and don't fall over from the weight of thinking them.

There will never be another character I love the way I love Dana Scully )

The original post is at the community, along with 10 mostly very MSR-centric fanfic recs.

It's three years later, and I am still a prisoner of love for this wonderful character. Happy Birthday, Dana Scully, and many happy returns of the day.

I thought for the free-for-all I'd revisit the non-fic fanthings I've made for Scully over the years. I had thought there were more, but the others involve Mulder. Not everything is about you, Mulder.

So I present Scully have I loved, a visual and auditory retrospective!

Mixes:

Strange Loop - a Never Again mix made for the episode challenge at [livejournal.com profile] waywardmixes.

Nine Songs - one song for each season.

Picspams:

A Gun and a Girl - Dana Scully and her gun - what it says on the tin.

Favourite Character - Dana Scully - made for the eponymous challenge at [livejournal.com profile] picspammy.

In honor of Dana Scully's birthday, just under the wire, I want to share with you all my very favorite XF music video.  I believe it was made by the wonderful BDodd, for the 2001 Scully Marathon.  This version has a tacked-on still montage at the beginning but it is still powerful.

So here's to Scully, who even now inspires and moves us.
