It has been a little over two weeks now since The X-Files eleventh season ended. I've been contemplating closing Semper Fi for good since the day after the show finally came to a close. I've completely lost interest in The X-Files. I will always love John Doggett (he will forever be my favorite character of the series). I will always love the Doggett/Scully Relationship. And Robert Patrick will always be one of my favorite actors. And while there are many reasons to keep this website online, there are other reasons not to:

- this website does not get many visitors anymore
- I still have to pay to keep the doggettscully.com domain
- I have real life issues that are playing into my inability to afford the domain
- there will never be new Doggett or DSR updates
- Doggett isn't exactly welcome or even a part of The X-Files series today
- I don't have time to keep up with updates on Robert Patrick's career
- I've completely lost interest in The X-Files as a whole since season 11

Reasons to keep Semper Fi:

- John Doggett will always be my favorite character of The X-Files series
- Doggett/Scully will always be my favorite 'ship of The X-Files series
- Robert Patrick will always be one of my favorite actors
- I'd be giving up doggettscully.com forever, and I love the domain

If I decide to close Semper Fi for good I will keep my @doggettscully Twitter handle, and the Doggett/Scully Facebook group and page (the group already has a lot of the content of this website archived).

This isn't a call out for help in paying for the domain. If I can be convinced that it is worth my money and time to keep this website online, I will dig into my savings and renew the domain.

I really wanted Semper Fi to make it to 20 years, but... perhaps it is time to let it go. Please cast your vote in the poll below to have your voice heard about this issue. Thank you.

The X-Files finally came to an end last night, and boy aren't we glad that Robert Patrick/John Doggett wasn't included in that hot mess! Not even a mention! Aside from Reyes finally being killed off, the lack of Doggett mentions pleased me the most. Hopefully, FOX won't renew the series for a twelfth season, and we can all start letting go of the series, and after a piss poor episode (series finale) as that... I think it's best we hang onto the past, you know, the original series. Because let's be honest, everything after season 9 (2002) was just bad MSR 'shipper fanfic brought to the big and small screen. It was awful.

But... and I must say this again LOL... Reyes is finally dead! If there was one thing I really, really wanted out of that eleventh season it was for that character to be killed off. At least I can say I enjoyed one thing about the season, right? Haha!

I have discontinued my #DoggettXF12 campaign. It is painfully obvious that The X-Files series is over, and has been over since 2002. That I Want To Believe movie, season 10, and season 11 is just bad 'shipper fanfic brought to the screen. It's not worth watching anymore. This is not The X-Files that I fell in love with. That series is long gone. This current incarnation is just a series that desperately tries to be The X-Files, but exists solely to please, cater to, and be obedient to the demands of Mulder/Scully 'shippers.

There is no way in Hell that I want John Doggett (and Robert Patrick) associated with what The X-Files has become. I love Doggett too much to want to damn him to association with what the series has become. Doggett is better than the trash Chris Carter, et al have been serving up since 2008 (especially in this -hopefully final- eleventh season). I don't even want a Doggett mention. I don't even want to see his picture show up in next week's final episode. I don't even want a cameo appearance (which isn't going to happen anyway). And if FOX is stupid enough to bring The X-Files back for a twelfth season, I still do not want John Doggett brought back.

I'll watch next week's finale even though I already know that I will hate it, and then bid farewell to this incarnation of The X-Files. I will take a break from The X-Files, in hopes that I can forget how awful it has been, so that I might again find a way to enjoy watching the episodes of the original series run.

Semper Fi will remain. I'm still a fan of the original run of The X-Files, John Doggett (Robert Patrick), and the Doggett/Scully relationship, but I just need to walk away from all things The X-Files after next week. It's just not worth it anymore. There are better TV series out there to watch that aren't so out of touch with how to write well that they are dependent on the opinions of 'shippers to dictate their approach to writing their show.

"I honestly believe Doggett loves Scully,
but he doesn't want to impose himself on her."
