[identity profile] amalnahurriyeh.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] 12daysofxfiles
After midnight in my timezone, so here goes. We've had two lovely serious fics, and now here I am to liven the joint up. My contribution to [livejournal.com profile] 12daysofxfiles is a series of macros in the Texts from Last Night genre. If you haven't encountered these before, they are a collision of screencaps from your preferred source text and words from the Texts from Last Night website, which documents the bizarre, inebriated, sex-soaked texting lives of Young People Today. (There are a lot of these on Tumblr: the most commonly updated XF one is Texts from the X-Files; mine, which has been on hiatus for a bit, is Texts from the Basement.)

These are Mulder and Scully-centric, but other characters pop up too. Can you name the episode for each screencap? If so, I will make you a custom macro from your favorite screencap!

I will, eventually, be posting these to Tumblr; hopefully this will inspire me to make more. It is a fun genre to work in...

This is a great idea. I don't have time to make any right now so I went to my drafts folder at Tumblr. Last summer I was using these things as RPF prompts. I am shocked, shocked at how many of them I've saved and at how they all seem sexual in content.

I assume it's okay to comment with more of them. Here's a favorite:

"He's going to dominate me whether he wants to or not." I love that.


An eternal truth, that.

Sometimes shit gets a little too real:

I'll be back with more tomorrow. My tomorrow. Your today.

And the first macro is from FTF, I think. Someone else will have to guess the others.

challenge accepted.

2: Three of a Kind
3: I thought this was Space because of the red jacket, but Mulder's wearing a different tie, so... Shadows maybe? Scully's colorful in that one. Ghost in the Machine?
4: 713 (or the very end of Nisei, maybe)
5: Tunguska?
6: Red Museum
7: The Jersey Devil
8: Dreamland
9: Home
10: ?
11: ?
12: Existence

ok, most of the others, anyway. :)

Here's my only attempt at this. Obviously, I should stick to writing fic and stay away from macros, but I thought this might inspire a story someday.
That should be better.

These are great fun! I love them!

"High hopes for your dick" --- says so much about our Scully, does it not?

As the co-mod of a TFLN blog (Texts from the Anchor Desk, for all your FakeNews/RealNews needs), I absolutely ADORE these; I've used one of the texts you've got above, and have Plans for at least one more. Well done!

Sweet reward, thanks! Though I must say trying to pick the perfect screen cap proved harder then... well, *ahem*... anyway...

Here is what I offer up to your mad TXTFLN skillz:

Ok, so the crazy LJ peeps won't let me put a URL link to my screencap in the comment box without marking it as spam. Tried twice, so now i'll go cry tearz of blood, father joe style.

wendelah1: Dana Scully and Diana Fowley have a stare-down (How it works)
From: [personal profile] wendelah1
If you email it to me, I think I can post it since I posted actual graphics. My user name plus gmail dot com. Or try posting the graphic itself, using the html code instead of the direct link. That should work.

From: [identity profile] newo-fic.livejournal.com
Ahhh, yes, using html would've made sense. I tend to suffer from major fail-age when it comes to writing lj code.

Thank you kindly! And I didn't mean to imply that our lovely mods are crazy, just the LJ goat ;)
