So, apparently the essay I wrote for last year’s xf_is_love, “I do not gaze at Scully” The Rain King: The X Files’ Response to Laura Mulvey, has been nominated for the best essay/meta category at No Rest for the Wicked. That was a pleasant message to wake up to this Sunday morning! Funnily enough, I’ve been reading a few of the fandom snowflake challenge posts that have been popping up on my flist, and thinking about whether a) I should do it too and b)whether I’d signpost people to my meta rather than my fic. I’ve got a few fics I think have been read less than I’d have liked, by I really like the meta that I’ve written. What a strange coincidence.
