All aboard the LAMETRAIN! CHOO CHOO!

It couldn't be helped. I have been doing cross-fandom interpretations of Mulder and Scully since 1998. You know, back when the show was mega popular and they had cameos or references in a BUNCH of shows, like The Simpsons, Reboot, and one year of the Emmys, even. Those cameos told me this was okay! *sob* It's .. okaayyy...

..Meh. 'Sides, if they can have a (semi-)official Dr. Who crossover pony, I can have my X-Ponies. ..Right? Woo, sci-fi!

I guess fan OCs have to have a lot of thought put into cutie marks and how each pony got them, but I mean, like, what other symbols are there in The X-Files besides the two X's in those two fonts? Maybe an alien. SHOOT. SHOULDA DONE AN ALIEN. Dang. OR A UFO. GODDAMNIT. Oh well. Anyway-- and I actually put thought into this-- maybe they both got theirs at a late age, but if you've watched the show, you know those two have had nothing else going on in their lives besides their jobs, so I guess it seems fitting.

I'd like to take a sec to talk about the art I've been doing involving ponies and how I've been trying to imitate the art style in the show. I realized while working on this that even though the colors are flat, a lot of the appeal comes from the line weight, which I SUCK at. Adding line weight takes twice as long as my usual inking method, but in all honesty, it makes it fun. That said, I'm over the flat color thing. I want to add depth and shadows and all that! I'm seriously considering going back and doing so. We'll see.

I could comment about and criticize this to pieces, but this is already a long enough description, so I'll stop here.

Wow. Just, wow. I love The X-Files and I love MLP. Great job with your interpretation.

It's funny to see Scully with four shoes. Don't ponies use their front hooves as hands sometimes?
I've failed to think of anything clever to say. I love MLP, I love F-Files; so I doubly approve of this.
Next step: PCIS (Pony Criminal Investigative Service). But I'm already working on that myself. ;P

Ended up making a main cast of six, like FiM, with six "secondary" agents. So the Equine Lunar Investigative Team has twelve agents, though their relationships (including families and friends outside the agency) are pending.
