Semper Fi is a John Doggett and Doggett/Scully (DSR) archive. Semper Fi was established on 26 December 2000 as Addicted To Doggett (and True Blue, the DSR section of ATD), and was originally intended to be a small fansite. Over the past seventeen years though the site has grown to become the definitive John Doggett and Doggett/Scully Relationship (DSR) website. It is now the only website dedicated to these two subjects that remains online. This site provides fans with the most comprehensive, in-depth, and accurate look at the John Doggett character, and the Doggett/Scully relationship. Addicted To Doggett was created to celebrate the newest character of "The X-Files" who was the series' star in its last two seasons. John Doggett brought new life into the show, and was exactly what the series needed when he was introduced... new blood.

When "The X-Files" series came to an end in May 2002, Doggett and Scully had our hearts in their hands. We will never forget the memories and friendships that these two characters brought to us, and continue to bring us sixteen years after their story came to an end. Though "The X-Files" has continued its big screen and small screen adventures without our John Doggett, he remains alive and well in our hearts as fans continue to create fanfic, artwork, and fan videos that celebrate our favorite X-Files FBI agent.

In late April 2016 I gave fans of John Doggett/DSR a little scare. Faced with the fact that I no longer could afford to continue to pay for my server space and the (sorely missed) doggettscully.com domain, I announced that in June Semper Fi would be closed forever. I received well wishes from a handful of fans, offers to help pay for another year from other fans, and then late night Monday, 2 May 2016, I was given the best surprise. Kelli of Scorpion HQ offered to host Semper Fi (and FRVS) on her server for me! And to think, if I hadn't taken a second to retweet a tweet to enter a contest to win a autographed cast photo from "Scorpion", I never would have won, and never would have gotten to talk to Kelli, and this site wouldn't be here right now. Funny how things work out.

I want to state that Semper Fi will remain online for however many years I am blessed to have Kelli/Scorpion HQ as the site's host. I'm hoping that's a long, long time from now. I'm still hoping to be able to celebrate 20 years online in 2020! I believe that this site needs to be a permanent staple in the online X-Files community, and that Doggett (and the DSR) must never be forgotten. This site is considered "static" now, meaning that there will be no more updates. This site will now be an archive for fans of The Doggett Years of "The X-Files". Thank you for your loyalty and support over the years, and for spending some of your time here on Semper Fi. Y'all mean the world to me!

Description of Addicted To Doggett from Skinner's Debriefing Room: "Beautifully organized site, with a well maintained archive, great images, and a really great feel for Doggett. Sometimes, I just can't decide Skinner? Doggett? Skinner? Doggett? Skinner...?"[2]
