Jimmy Kimmel hosts David Duchovny and Gillian AndersonJimmy Kimmel won the hearts of Mulder/Scully 'shippers everywhere last night with not only a joint interview with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, but also a hilarious X-Files skit featuring the Mulder/Scully sex scene fans have been anticpating for DECADES. Kimmel is the entire fandom when he says: “Also, you two should have sex. You should. It's been, like, 23 years. Everybody knows. ... It is why [people are so invested], and it's time to do it already.” AND THEY DO. Watch the skit below, watch David and Gillian bring their legendary chemistry along to the interview (here's Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 of the interview), and then come squee with me in my MSR magnum opus “18 Times Mulder/Scully Ruined Us for All Other TV Romances.”

Downton Abbey and Star wouldn't think they'd go together. Ever. But then again, we never thought Downton Abbey and Iron Man would go together, yet we loved it. And what do you know, Yahoo! delivered with this video; as our blogger Sahara Hoshi commented, “It's the Downton Abbey/Star Wars mashup you didn't know you needed.” Plus, Maggie Smith with a light saber... 'nuff said!

Beth Kery's Make Me serial kicks off April 12 and will run for 8 installments, which means 8 gorgeous covers. Set your gaze on those and learn more about the serial at Kery's site. If you haven't yet tried a Kery serial, you can binge away with multi-part stories like Because You Are Mine.
