A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single hop. William The Rabbit has already begun what will be a worldwide journey. For those of you unfamiliar with the cute, little fuzzball, William is a stuffed rabbit being sent to visit X-Philes around the world by the fans at The X-Files.Ru. Recently, William toured Moscow. There were no signs of meteorites or black oil, and he still has both arms, so it's been a solid start so far.
You can read all about William's trip to Moscow here. As he continues to travel, he will post more updates about everything he's seen and all the fans he's met. However, Moscow is just the beginning. William will travel far and wide to find fellow Philes. If you'd like to join his journey, you can meet up with him in a local city or even host a visit. The deadline to apply is July 16th. Find out more information here.

The fans from The X-Files.Ru have decided to start a new fandom experience and XFN is happy to join them!
William the Rabbit is set to start his journey on June 11th, 2016 in Russia but he plans to visit X-Files fans all over the world!
As you may remember, X-Files News spearheaded, along with dozens of international communities, the Frankenbear tour to honor Frank Spotnitz's relationship with the fandom. After such a successful campaign that gathered funds for the UCLA Rape Treatment Center, the fans wanted to do it again with CarterFox, this time to pay homage to Chris Carter. Unfortunately, CarterFox got lost somewhere in Russia. We smell a conspiracy(*).
Cut to today: the great Russian fans have began organizing the tour for this little fellow. If you're interested in being part of the activity, here are some facts you want to know:
- Travel starts on June 11th, 2016 through Russia.
- More cities will be added to the schedule per request and confirmation from the organizing team.
- Deadline to sign up to be a host is July 16th, 2016.
- After William is done travelling the world, he will be turned over to Chris Carter as the final step of his journey.
During his trip, William will collect stories and pictures to be added to his delivery package and will be part of his social media updates. Like wise, the importance of his journey is to be able to unite and create experiences for the fandom in different cities. If you can't be a host, you can still attend a gathering. Please read more about the tour plans and contact the organizers here.
Stay tuned for updates as the tour goes around, and we hope you can join!
(*) Shall CarterFox be returned, no questions will be asked.
We have now made it halfway through the revival, so it is time to say thank you to a few people who helped put this together and bring back our favorite television show of all time.
Club The X-Files Mexico is teaming up with XFilesNews to put together a thank you video to the X-Files cast and crew for giving us 6 new episodes. We are calling out to every phile in the world to record yourself, your friends, or family with something associated with The X-Files (a landmark, your pets, etc) and send it to us.
Be creative and tell them how grateful you are for having Mulder and Scully back in your life. Get dressed up as the characters or wear your favorite X-Files t-shirt. If you need a little help with what to say may we suggest something along the lines of: "Thank you for bringing them back", "Mulder and Scully are back and we're so happy", "They're back", "Thank you 1013 for not giving up", and so on. Even thank your fellow phile for never, ever losing faith on this road.
UPDATE: DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28TH, 2016.
