- Heh. I must be the last person in the universe not to have seen much X-files, but from what little I know, this is exceedingly funny and sounds much like them.
Your story summaries, by the way, are incredibly entertaining.
Author\'s Response: My summaries? Wow. I hadn't known that.
- If you were going for parody or strictly laughs, this may have made it. If it was just supposed to be humorous, then I feel it fell flat. It is so OOC that I felt it was not X-Files at all. There may have been glimpses in the show, but they were few and far between, which was just enough to add a little humanity to the characters. I cannot imagine this conversation actually taking place within the confines of the broadcast series.
This is okay on dialogue, but there is nothing to counter balance it. You are only telling us things and showing us nothing. It lacks substance. I believe if you were to fill in the gaps, it may improve the overall acceptance of the story.
Thank you for sharing.
(#) FrostedGlass 2006-10-02It´s probably a bit OOC - but for the sake of valuable entertainment which makes it ok. Loved the line about Scully bossying around the hospital staff without actually having experience. (I doubt the later, though, because I believe she did practice some medicine before she met Mulder but I could be wrong. It´s been some time since I´ve watched the earlier seasons and I think that´s where she refers to that. And who cares in the end when it´s for the sake of valuable entertainment.)
P.S.: Valuable entertainment.
Author's responseDana Scully was recruited out of medical school. She was supposed to be twenty-eight when she met Mulder, after spending two years on a position at Quantico, so this means that she probably did not complete a hospital residency. And yet she tells them exactly what to do...
