SCULLY: Is this what it takes to climb the ladder, Colton?

TOM COLTON: All the way to the top.

SCULLY: Then I can’t wait `til you fall off and land on your ass.

Tooms’s yellow eyes staring down at Scully from the rafters is one of the creepiest images on the X-Files. And that’s saying a lot.

Scully: Just because I can’t explain it doesn’t mean I’m going to believe they’re UFOs.
Mulder: Unidentified Flying Objects. I think that fits the description pretty well. Tell me I’m crazy.
Scully: Mulder, you’re crazy.

—The X-Files, “Deep Throat”

How had I forgotten how badass Scully got in this ep—the second case they worked together—to save Mulder’s ass?

Woman Deemed “Too Fat to Run” Inspires Plus-Sized Runners Everywhere

the-exercist:

Great article about runner Julie Creffield:

“Despite my size 18 frame I am a runner,” she wrote on the Huffington Post. “I have in fact been a runner for the last ten years running everything from 5k fun runs to full marathons. I run because I love the feeling of running, I love the community of runners where I have made many friends, but I admit I also run to keep control of my weight, and to help me lead a healthier and happier life.”
She has recently launched the website Too Fat To Run which will provide first-time runners with the resources, including safety tips, to make their dreams a reality. The site will also sell merchandise, because, you know, you got to keep the lights on. Actually, one of the coolest things “Too Fat To Run” is doing, merch-wise, is selling runners apparel that provides a range of sizes for plus-sizers (most fitness wear does not clothe women past a size 16 or 18). The idea is to be able to make this business profitable enough to make “stylish, sexy, technical apparel” for plus-sized athletes.
"What we need are practical solutions where women feel empowered to be more active and where exercise is seen as something enjoyable and fun rather than a chore and something we must do."

I’m the same size she is, and it’s only recently that I’ve felt comfortable calling myself a runner, even after finishing 3 half-marathons. Julie, you are awesome. (Especially for selling plus-size exercise clothing, because wow, is that hard to come by.)

Scully: The answers are there. You just have to know where to look.
Mulder: That’s why they put the “I” in FBI.

The X Files, “Pilot” (via showcaps) (needs to be heard in sassy!Scully and teasing!Mulder voices)

I’ve started rewatching the X-Files. I’ve seen every single episode but one, starting with the S2 cliffhanger and going back later to pick up the rest. After a year or so of watching, my best friend, who introduced me to XF in the first place, said, “Did you know that people write their own stories about this show?” Thus began the biggest time sink and biggest lifesaver of my college, grad school, post-grad, and current days: fandom and fanfiction.

I cannot believe this show is over twenty years old. /o\
