Finally, we're back with Monday night TV. Actually, we did last week as well, but there was only one ep of interest and so I didn't write it up. But I must say that the special features on the S1 TXF DVDs *suck*.

Before D. arrived, I flipped on Space and lo! there was a Firefly ep. Cool, I thought. Then I realised: this was a Firefly ep I had never seen before. With Richard Burgi. And Jayne...well, I shall say no more. Especially since I didn't get to watch all of it. I assume it will be on the DVD. If not, Space is bound to run it again.

Official TV:

Buffy: Choices
We're almost at the end of S3, finally. Buffy complains to Angel that he never takes her anywhere new -- they just spend all their time fighting in graveyards. Buffy decides to be pro-active and attack the mayor. Willow gets caught. They trade the thing that could keep the mayor from ascending to get Willow back. Buffy and Angel have a midnight picnic in a graveyard.

Wesley was a darling in this ep. When Buffy says she's going to do something Wes doesn't like, Wes makes this special symbol -- crossing his arms over his chest, with the first two fingers of each hand extended -- and says, "by the power invested in me by the Watchers Council, I forbid it."

He is also the only one to suggest that the better choice is to leave Willow and destroy the box. If they destroy the box, the mayor can't ascend and a lot of lives will be saved. Even then, Wes is the Big Picture guy, the one who knows that there are things more important than one life -- like lots of lives.

The X-Files: Little Green Men
On to season 2! Scully complains to Mulder that he never takes her anywhere new -- they just spend all their time skulking in parking garages. Scully says a lot of things to Mulder that one could interpret as a come-on. Mulder chooses not to interpret them that way. Skinner stands up to CSM for Mulder. Anytime Mulder is in Skinner's presence, he has this intense hangdog look. It's such a turn-on.

We meet Senator Matheson, another one of Mulder's creepy fathers. We hear Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #2 over and over again. Oh, and maybe there are some aliens. Scully holds Mulder's hand while they listen to a surveillance tape about lap dancing but he doesn't seem to notice.

The X-Files: The Host
Scully comes on to Mulder some more. He is oblivious. Mulder gets assigned to what he thinks is another punishment case, but is really an X-File about a giant Flukeman. Mulder leans over sewage, wades in sewage, splashes about in sewage. People barf up liver flukes. It's icky.

Mr X keeps calling Mulder on the phone. Obviously, he wants phone sex, but Mulder doesn't seem to notice.

The M/Sk was even better in this ep. Mulder goes to Skinner's office to complain about his assignment. He barges in on a meeting of higher-ups and Skinner makes Mulder stand in front and tell everyone in the room why he thinks his current case is meaningless. I almost spontaneously combusted. Skinner is so alpha around Mulder and Mulder just submits, submits, submits.

I must not call in sick to stay home and write M/Sk. I must not call in sick to stay home and write M/Sk.

We hear Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #2 over and over again.

May I say, we hear a really *crappy* performance of Brandenburg #2 over and over again. It sounds like one of those cassette tapes you can buy for $3.99 (USD). Why can't Senator Matheson listen to a *good* performance on authentic instruments by an early music ensemble?

Probably because the crappy performance was cheap to use. Or because they have no taste. One or the other. :)

He does submit, doesn't he? His eyes go down, his shoulders go down and you can almost hear him say, "Tell me what to do. Tell me to go on my knees."

It's not just Skinner. He does the same for Senator Matheson. I'm completely convinced that Mulder spent at least a few months as his boytoy. I mean, think how pretty he must have been right after Oxford...

This is probably why, for the longest time, the only fandom where I could read BDSM fic was in XF - because it fits Mulder so well.

(Not going to talk about the HP kinkfic currently on my harddrive. Not.)

It's not just Skinner. He does the same for Senator Matheson. I'm completely convinced that Mulder spent at least a few months as his boytoy.

You're probably right. Their interaction is very intense. There's one shot where Matheson walks around Mulder, stands behind him, and whispers in his ear. It's so sinister and so sexy.

Re: I certainly hope

Me, too.

Have I mentioned that M/Sk was my first slash pairing? Because it was.

Re: I certainly hope

Sadly, I had to go in for a meeting. And no, I didn't fantasize about Mulder and Skinner getting it on on the meeting room table.

But I probably *should* have.

You must not call in sick to write M/Sk

You mustn't. Instead you should call in sick to write Jack/Teal'c.

Re: You must not call in sick to write M/Sk

Hee! They're on the List, but it could be a while. I'm having enough trouble trying to work out the logistics of Jack/Daniel.

Hmm, Teal'c/Mulder?

M/Sk? Did you say M/Sk?

Deal me in.

Re: M/Sk? Did you say M/Sk?

It's back to the basics. :)

Mulder/Skinner slash is passe

The new wave is Skinner/Kersh slash.

OK, I'm lying. If you conduct a search on Gossamer for "Skinner/Kersh" or "Kersh/Skinner", all you get is "No database entries match the specified criteria."

And that's just tragic.

Someone's gotta do something about this!

Re: Mulder/Skinner slash is passe

I didn't like Kersh that much. He wasn't all that interesting to me.

But Skinner/X, on the other hand...

Re: Mulder/Skinner slash is passe

But Skinner/X, on the other hand...

That one's been done.

Unofficial Channels by Louise Wu.

The closest I've seen to Skinner/Kersh is the non-slashy post-col series by David Hearne...whose title escapes me at the moment.

And I have a half-finished Skinner-Kersh pre- and post-XF fic going on at the moment, which I've been considering taking out of mothballs for awhile now. Non-slashy.
