    The New Kid

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Creed McCandy, Jul 28, 2017.

    Members and Guests,

    You have another newb in your midst. Be gentle :)

    I try (let's be real here) to write sci-fi, paranormal and conspiracy romance for lovers of folklore, spirit science, pseudo-science and the occult. I draw inspiration from The X-Files, Joe Nickell, Fortean Times, Rudolf Steiner & MUFON.

    Other interests include good coffee and way too much HGTV.

    Don't be shy. Say Hi. ;)

    Welcome New Kid and can I please be your beta reader? I'm endlessly fascinated by conspiracy theories, cryptids, and the occult. I set a story at Loch Ness, though sadly I couldn't feature Nessie as a character.

    Welcome sir. :superhello:

    Ok, no power tools, but I make no promises.:supergrin:

    The X-Files is pretty cool. And I have seen a few
    things from MUFON.

    Coffee is love, coffee is life. :supergrin:

    Good luck with your works.:supersmile:

    MUFON is a real thing? I thought they made it up in the X-files.

    @Homer Potvin MUFON is definitely real. That's what I love about TXF they tried to stay as true to life as possible despite the subject matter.

    Summary I was abducted again
    That's just too much! So understated. Makes me want to start writing.

    Welcome aboard. Remember that The Lone Gunmen TV show? I wish that would have gone 8 seasons.

    @Seven Crowns I sure do. The Gunmen predicted 9/11 in one of their eps 6 months before the actual event. Spooky.

    Do you remember Chris Carter's other series Millennium with Lance Henrickson? I always loved the juxtaposition between the darkness of the show and the brightness of the little yellow house he lived in. The one bright spot in his otherwise dark life.

    That's too funny... be ever better if they added, "And, man, is my anus sore!" after the abduction part.

    Yeah, I do. Seriously dark. Some of those episodes, I was surprised they made it on TV.

    I'm pretty sure X-Files, Season 4, Episode Home did not air in certain states in the USA because (of all the weird topics the x-files covered) apparently inbreeding is just too out there for some people to handle. Personally, I could have lived without the fluke worm monster that hides in the sewer waiting to bite your ass.
