This project was inspired by rabblevolunteer, who had asked just how scary my favorite show in the world could be. I was totally interested in figuring out what episodes a person might skip if they had particular fears or triggers, and then this was born. I want people to watch this show. It is the most important television show I have ever watched, and the character of Dana Scully is formative to who I am today. At the same time, I like the idea of making TV accessible to people, of being able to warn them what they’re getting into. People should have the freedom to make such choices, and I hope this guide can help you enjoy The X-Files as well.

(For those with certain triggers and fears)
Your Favorite Character
I really very much love/enjoy all of the characters (villains excluded). I think I’m going to have to go with President Snow. Now, before you throw handfuls of Mockingjay pins at me angrily, let me explain.
One day, many weeks before The Hunger Games premiere, my friend brought The Hunger Games Official Illustrated Movie Companion to our lunch table. When she passed it to me, I immediately flipped to the actors/actresses section. I was disappointed upon seeing President Snow. He didn’t seem evil enough (I was so wrong. Donald Sutherland was a terrific President Snow!) in the still. I said, “That’s not President Snow.” Then I passed it to another friend of mine, who starting flipping through the book randomly. She pointed at everything she saw (including a poodle that had been dyed pink), “That’s President Snow!” Thus, my friends and I developed the theory that everyone/everything/everywhere is President Snow.
So, in order to wheedle out of choosing one character, I chose them all.
Also, I chose Buttercup because Mark Oshiro has made him awesome.
RIP Your hair. P.S. THG movie review? *hopeful*
Tonight! Also, I am still working on your letter. It’s handwritten. And it’s quite long!
Mark replied to me.

I don’t think you get it. Mark Oshiro replied to my reply to his post.
My existence has meaning.
I’m pretty sure I think “I wish my glasses had windshield wipers” at least once a week. Minus the cleaner fluid though…
Oh, well I’ve thought that before. I meant that I literally thought about full, body-sized wipers for five seconds.
how would that even work
Ohh, so they cover your entire body. Thanks for clarifying.
In which case: would they go over or under your skin? Would you just LIVE in glass your whole life? No need to shower, then…
I TRIED NOT TO LAUGH. IT WAS SO BAD.
