x-files shippers are obsessed with scully and mulder’s ‘romantic’ relationship. according to me, the main duty of a shipper is to romantically enhance screenshots of the couple and post them on your angelfire site.

sculder aka muldy

due to the recent demise of aol hometown and other such places (thanks a lot web 2.0), its been hard to track down some of these classic shipper sites. it was a very sad moment in time when i realized kipler’s famous ‘relationship episode guide’ was shutdown. but! i was able to track down the salvaged remains of it at x-files ultimate thanks to ‘athame’. (aka mary beth clarke), was an og shipper who was featured in the x-files episode DPO. you should know this episode as the one where the guy from wonder years hangs out with jack black at an arcade and gets struck by lightning, gaining the magical ability to kill people with electricity while listening to filter. while channel surfing, he stops on a music video for a song called ‘Mary Beth Clarke, I love you’ directed by JHartley (another AOL x-phile) and produced by Deb Brown (yet another AOL x-phile). i’ve posted a few of my favey excerpts from the guide below. i love how kipler gets very in-depth about the romantic details but wraps up all the paranormal stuff in one sentence as if they were just minor details. the downside to the guide are the lame comments on scully’s weight. lay off! scully always looks good. someone just needs to get a hold of their raging lust for mulder. the beauty of gillian anderson is that she doesn’t even remember the x-files. she’s just really good at memorizing her lines. if you want to check out my own humble fan art, it is available here at my og tripod webbie site aboutangelica.

excerpts from kipler’s relationship episode guide
