The article summarizes a research focused on the refractions between tale and chronicle. The corpus of the research consists of the whole American TV series The X-files, that the authoress assumes as an exemplar text in order to investigate the narrative structures that characterise big and small today’s tales (individual and collective), and the fall of the confines between fiction and chronicle, fiction and individual tales. The authoress proposes to read the text through multiple accesses, stating an analogy between the structure of the tale and the structure of an interactive hypertext (like a videogame), and giving some link (necessarily arbitrary) through which the text can be interpreted: pervasive themes like those of the double and of the reflex, those of the loss, of the end, of the mythical time, of the conspiracy and likelihood syndrome. Moreover the authoress touches upon other subjects treated within the research and more closely linked to the reception of the text, like the interesting phenomenon of production of accessory or secondary narrativity in the Web; with regard to this matter, the authoress proposes a possible theory about the practices of textual re-writing.
