Now that you know it’s nowhere, what’s to stop you coming home?
All you got to do is go there, then you’ll really realize what’s going down.
You went to a strange land searching, for a truth you felt was wrong.
That’s when the heartaches started.
Though you’re where you want to be… you’re not where you belong.

- Graham Nash,  Better Days

Lady Mechanika

Lady Mechanika’s early life and origin are somewhat shrouded in mystery, as much to herself as to the rest of the world. Having grown accustomed to life as an amnesiac, she became a detective and private investigator specializing in the supernatural and paranormal. In truth, Lady Mechanika proves to be somewhat supernatural herself, with jet black hair, unnatural red eyes and a host of artificial and mechanical ‘enhancements’. 

Searching for the truth about her past drives her as much as the mysteries she is hired to investigate, and she has become both famous and infamous for her willingness to take on cases that no others would accept.

Lady Mechanika was created in 2010 by Joe Benitez and Peter Steigerwald as an original series with Aspen comics. The inspiration for Lady Mechanika and her self-titled series came after all the years Joe Benitez spent participating in conventions. He enjoyed seeing all the steampunk cosplayers and began to take an interest in the genre itself. The title has proven to be quite popular due to its distinctive look, its unique genre and compelling storytelling.

Lady Mechanika first appeared in Lady Mechanika #0, The Demon of Satan’s Alley (October, 2010).

I believe that the concept of The X-Files is to never have a closure. To me that was obvious since s1. The X-Files is about never ending conspiracies & the search for the Truth, not finding the Truth. CC said the series is like searching for God, you'll never find definitive proof of that. That's how I always felt, that The X-Files, more than any other story, is about the journey, not the destination so I never expected a finale or the truth to be revealed & honestly that is why I love it.

I can respect that, and the way you put it is really lovely. I agree that an open-ended idea of the Truth ™ is fitting, though I like to poke fun at us never really finding out. The only time I have a problem with it is when cc gives us conflicting explanations. Also his assumption that if he leaves it open-ended he’s more likely to get a chance to bring the show back. I’m sure there’s a way to have closure to the show while still appreciating the beauty of never really knowing what the truth is.

I think that closure could have been in Mulder and Scully’s characters. They didn’t have to be married (tbh idk how I feel about married M and S like it feels kinda out of character to me…) or 100% happily ever after but the exploitation of the “will they won’t they” trope prevented us from getting any sort of resolution in this show and in their characters.

We learned from Tim to never give up

We learned from Jay to search for truth

We learned from Brian to not just show one side of ourselves

We learned from Jessica to see what’s behind

We learned from Alex what not to do


cut thoughts

photo shopped cropped thoughts
left noughts
between what ought to be
the gaps in my memories
seven different times
I’ve spoken linguistic rhymes
tunes and riddles
to belittle the centric mind.
I’m alone and fine
to dine within the grasp of sin
blowing the wind chimes of my own melodies
its words from the grape vine to keep close my own enemies.
with precognitive eye’s I’ve looked further ahead of me
through the shutters and the still framed cries of perpetual energies
what lies do you keep that creeps beyond the tides of ocean deep thoughts?
is it doubt that’s caught
in the sheets that beds your sleep?
it reaps, then eats
and droughts your soul
from its river of life like an organ failed liver.
but see me?
i deliver the truth stomped down
on the roofs of churches like reindeer hoofs.
see the truth searches for the bad
but the good news?
is death in a bag
and in boxes of twenty used fags
its your birthday candles and dinner samples.
ready to turn time into an example
so I’ll just try my best
to breed ample
lines of truth in a test till i rest in a booth
waiting for a preacher to hear my confession
so book notes..
for I am your teacher and class is in session.
so don’t
restrain your tongue and speak young
for the truth?
is in a seizure.
so why should i question your time to be a leisure?
for its death that’s cold
and what lies within
your freezer.


The grandiose person is never really free; first because he is excessively dependent on admiration from others, and second, because his self-respect is dependent on qualities, functions, and achievements that can suddenly fail.

Dear future girlfriend

I will love you. That’s it. I can promise you that. I’ll ask you how your day has been and want to genuinely know everything that happened. I’ll tease you a lot so be ready. I will do all kinds of stupid stuff just so I get to see that smile on your face. You better get used to laughing while I’m around because that’s what I do best. I’ll hold you in my arms when your day just didn’t go quite how you planned. We can spend all day watching Harry Potter movies and making fatty, unhealthy food for our midnight snack. I will show you off. You’re my girl, my world. Who wouldn’t be proud of you? I’ll show you compassion, faithfulness, trustworthiness, and true feelings. But once again, I promise to never let you go a day feeling unloved.

Despite my firm convictions, I have been always a man who tries
to face facts, and to accept the reality of life as new experience and
new knowledge unfolds it. I have always kept an open mind, which
is necessary to the flexibility that must go hand in hand
with every form of intelligent search for truth.
