Disclaimer: I am not, nor have I ever been, Dawson Rambo. I don't
even know the guy, honest!  But I am very impressed with him.
Historically, nobody likes my praise-songs, which is bad. Praise
is one of the greatest responsibilities of the poet.

And it didn't hurt that his name scanned to one of the most
popular filksongs of all time, neh?

Dawson Rambo was a writer who was learning of his trade
And he looked upon the X-Files and he liked the tale they made.
So he started writing fanfic, writing all of it he could.
When we looked upon his fanfic, it was good.

And he took himself a "Snapshot", just a one-shot little thing,
Now it's got 29 chapters, plus an epilogue with ring.
With the best romance since Heyer, with Tom Clancy on the side,
Dawson Rambo gives you one hell of a ride.
And the man is one hell of a tour guide.

Dawson Rambo thought of Scully in love with another man
And he shaded out an "Umbra", but it darkened past his plan.
It should end up 40 chapters long, and each one tightens hold;
And I really think the public should be told.

It's got lots of ActionScully; it's got KickAssMulder -- whoo!
There's Skinner and a destiny and CSM Man, too.
With the best romance since Heyer, and Tom Clancy on the side,
Dawson Rambo gives you one hell of a ride --
And I tell you, he is Hell's own tour guide.

So go look for Dawson Rambo. Read the stories on his page
And send thankful e-mails coursing to this mighty technomage.
And remember who you heard it from, when he achieves his fame;
And most of all, remember Dawson's name.
