There was another rerun this week, so I’ve decided to feed the discussion column with a topic that always caused a huge debate when it was launched on the alt.tv.x-files newsgroup. Read more for the details…

There are a lot of people who feel Mulder and Scully should be romantically involved. Are you one of them?

There are certain standard positions that people take. The two standard positions are that of the shippers, who want to see Mulder and Scully involved in a romantic relationship. The flipside of this is the noromo groups, who don’t want to see romance.

There are other positions than these as well. There are the skippers, who want to see Skinner and Scully involved, and the slashers, who can be further subdivided. The slashers have one thing in common though; they want to see same-sex involvements, usually with some combination of Mulder, Skinner, and Krycek.

I haven’t been visiting alt.tv.x-files this season, so I don’t know what title is used for any groups who want to see Doggett involved, although I’m sure they exist. So, which group are you in? Why?
