X-Files News is on Archival Mode. Updates are on hiatus.

It's no secret that The X-Files has a passionate fan base. We've followed our favorite characters for 25 years through all sorts of highs and lows. A lot has been written about The Scully Effect and XFN's Keva Andersen wrote about how Scully influenced her life. But now we want to hear from you! Were you inspired by Mulder's beliefs and his search for the truth? Did Scully's science and rationalism speak to you? Was Skinner's loyalty something you try to emulate in your own life? Whoever the character, we'd love for you to share you story with us.

Write a short post about how your favorite character influenced you, 500 words or less. Send your piece to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Wednesday, April 11th, at 11:59 pm PST. We'll choose the top 5 and share them here on XFN.
