Today is the imaginary birthday of one of my favorite characters, Fox Mulder of The X-Files. Every year to celebrate, I reread [ profile] syntax6's marvelous "Birthday Stories". Because this isn't her usual casefile and/or MSR, you might have passed these by. Well, don't. Taking us through the first seven seasons, Syn gives us fourteen short birthday stories, each one slotted effortlessly into canon. Here is an excerpt:

Season Five: Spinning in Infinity: His )

This one's not a happy-go-lucky story, since it is set during the cancer arc, but it is a moving one, one that has extra resonance for me this year. Read them, read them all. You'll love them, I promise.

Appropriately, October 13 is the opening day for [ profile] xf_bigbang. Today's offering is "Variations on a Theme" by [ profile] colebaltblue, fanart by [ profile] tlynnfic. Go read, and please send some feedback to the writer and the artist. Fanworks are a big part of what keeps a fandom alive and well.

This week at [ profile] xf_book_club, we are reading "Dance" by dith. This is a great story, an over-looked gem from the early years, a sweet yet hip blast of nostalgia for early season two Mulder and Scully, and of course, the nineties! Excerpt and link at the community.

Cross-posted everywhere I could think to do it.
Happy 49th birthday to Fox Mulder! (And happy 54th birthday to Chris Carter as well.)

(And, yes, I realize it's nearly 10/14 in a good chunk of the world. Hey, I fell asleep last night without doing this, so sue me. Lots more hours in the Americas, though!)

In honor of the day: post something! A favorite vid, fic, meta, LOLMulder, etc, etc, etc, in honor of the birthday boy.

I have two offerings:

OK, I'm sure everyone's seen this, and I think it's certainly possible to make a better X-Files vid to Telephone, but I haven't had time nobody has yet, so:

And for fic, if you haven't read Syntax 6's Birthday Stories, or haven't read them recently, today's the day to do it, for half of them, at least. I'd say which ones I like best, except that 1) my real favorite is a Scully-birthday one (season 3) and 2) they're all good.
