You can't go many places in the X-Files fandom without seeing her artwork. Worrynet is famous for her adorable Mulder and Scully cartoons, and today we're getting to know her a little bit better. Worry participated in the first heART for Charity auctions, and she is back again with two different pieces up for auction.
A stunning set of Tarot Cards already went on a previous round but more of her is currently being auctioned here. All proceeds will benefit SA-YES.
Today marks Dana Scully's 50th birthday. For half a century, the enigmatic Agent Scully has fought monsters both human and unknown. Twenty-two years ago, she was assigned to a quest that soon became her own search for truth. And where Mulder was the one to discover the path, it was Scully who navigated the journey.
Always the Skeptic to Mulder's Believer, Scully was a beacon of science. She demanded evidence for truth. If Mulder was right and the fix was in and the sky was falling, then hell, she was going to be there collecting measurements. Despite the gold cross around her neck, science was the religion by which Dana Scully lived.
Many of us grew up following her lead. We watched her walk besides Mulder through morgue hallways and dark forests. In a world dominated by men, she held her ownâ€”all 5 foot 3 inches of her. Even in the face of damaging her career, she always stood for what was right and just. We couldn't have asked for a better role model.
Scully was endlessly smart and embodied a new definition of sexy. Tailored suits and prim pairs of heels replaced tight shirts and short skirts. She was beautiful and elegant and managed to maintain that even when her own world was falling apart. The woman climbed inside of an elephant carcass, performed a necropsy, and still made it look good.
Truthfully, we owe a debt of gratitude to Dana Scully. We watched her struggle with her emotions and insecurities and come out on the other side. Watching The X-Files through Scully's eyes, we learned about loss and love, and even a little bit about ourselves. Despite all the hardships she went through, at one point or another, most of us have wanted to be more like Dana Scully.
We've dyed our hair red. We've studied science. Some of us even have a gold cross necklace. Perhaps it's her intelligence and beauty or maybe the way she always seemed to flawlessly handle herself in any situation. It could be that streak of sass that she whips out at just the right moment. Whatever it is, at fifty years old, Dana Scully is still beautifully interesting.
She may be a fictional character, but to us, Scully is very real. For that, to Chris Carter and his incredible team of writers, we are eternally grateful. Most importantly though, is the woman who brought Dana Scully to life. Twenty years ago, Gillian Anderson stepped into a role that no one else could have ever played. She is the reason Scully will live on, even though she is no longer on our television screens.
So Happy Birthday to Dana Katherine Scully. You've accomplished a lot these past fifty years, and we can't wait to see what you do next.
Frank Spotnitz, Gillian Anderson, and David Duchovny have all done it, but now it's Chris Carter's turn. As part of the promotion for his new pilot The After, Chris will be participating in an upcoming AMA on Reddit.
The informal question and answer session will take place in the IAmA subreddit on February 27th at 4pm ET. So that gives you all a few days to come up with the best questions!
Wondering about that creepy tattooed thing at the end of The After? Have a question that's been bugging you for a a decade about Scully's thought process from that one scene? Now is your time to ask, Philes. Because you never know where the ever-elusive Chris Carter will turn up next.
We will be sure to update our Facebook and Twitter when the event goes live, so stay tuned.
