News for the OBSSEsed was a monthly online newsletter for Order of the Blessed Saint Scully the Enigmatic.

There were 41 issues from March 1997 to Summer 2001.

The focus this newsletter: Scully, fun, irreverence. It contained many photos, con reports, articles, poems, fiction, and parodies.

Full index is here.

About

From the first issue:
Welcome to the premier issue of "News for the OBSSEsed," a monthly Web newsletter for members of the Order of the Blessed Saint Scully the Enigmatic (OBSSE) and visitors to our humble virtual sanctuary.

First off, a big "Thank You" goes to Sister Autumn Tysko for giving this little ditty its name and for being one of our first contributors. Other thanks go to Sister Monet Inscrutable and Sister EP for contributing some creative contributions ( I like alliteration, what can I say?) to the site.

What you'll find herein is a little bit of everything related to St. Scully--essays, comments, creative works (short ones only!) from OBSSE members ranging from the serious (a poem based on a dream in this issue) to the outrageously funny (check out Sister Monet's "Hymn" sung to the tune of "She Blinded Me with Science." :) And of course, we offer opportunities for you to comment on what you read. Feedback is *always* welcome!

Oh, and most everything relates in some fashion to St. Scully, but you probably figured that out already.

What you will NEVER ever find here are rumours regarding Gillian Anderson's love/sex/or whatever life. Go buy a tabloid for those. You WILL find career-related news about the actress, however, a little bit of which is offered in this month's missive.

The Rules

THE OBSSE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER by Sister AutumnT.

NOTE: With the OBSSE gaining members daily, Sister Autumn offers up a worthy "Book of Common Prayer" that should be of help to both Postulants and Novices. (This info will be archived in April to the Rules of the Order section of the site.)

Congratulations on your admittance into our Order celebrating the Blessed St. Scully!

If you've gotten this far you obviously did quite well on THE TEST, but admittance to the Order is only the beginning of your Spiritual Journey to Enigmatic Enlightenment, not the end. As an OBSSE member, you are uniquely responsible for upholding the good name of St. Scully. And as with any religious order worth its salt, your faith will be tested--constantly.

If you wish to maintain your place in the Order, you must meet these tests with courage and vigillance. To assist you, the OBSSE offers the following guidelines to help you in your continuing pilgramage to glorify St. Scully:

As a member of the OBSSE, you may proudly use the affiliation in your sig line.You should not, however, EVER use this in a post where you are not representing the fundamental faith of the Order. OBSSE is not against freedom of speech, but, if you ever for some odd and frightening reason feel compelled to post comments that are unflattering to St. Scully or against OBSSE doctrines, do not use the Order in your sig (and you may want to pray really, really hard as well). Remember, you must ALWAYS defend St. Scully - even when the cards are stacked against you. If Our Dear Dana thinks that contaminated groundwater made a book spontaneously combust, then so be it. Fangs *must* be calcium deposits despite what others may say. Photographic howlers can be created by old film and a heater - really! That snake tattoo is downright charming. This can be difficult for even the most devout, but remember, it is OK to laugh (with her - not ever at her), before taking up her defense. Despite your personal leanings on the great Scully/Mulder relationship debate you must always remember that St. Scully is much too good for Mulder. We aren't saying that she couldn't have a weak moment sometime in the future or that Mulder can't change (strike that - Mulder can't change), but even if you entertain romantic notions about them, be firm in your resolve. Remember, if and when Scully and Mulder ever should get together, it will be because St. Scully saw fit, in her infinite wisdom, to do so. And of course, Agent Mulder would be damn lucky! (St. Scully can certainly be forgiven her weak moments, as they happen so rarely.)

If you follow these three simple guidelines, we can assure you a successful journey from postulant, to novice, to...(may you be so blessed)...Full and Professed Member in the OBSSE!
