Some gothic x’s for i-put-things-on-the-internet. 
I like the first, swoopy x, which is 11th-12th century early Gothic.  It calls back to insular and Luxeuil miniscule scripts.  That evolves into the x’s with crossbars, which sometimes look a little bit too much like r’s for my taste.  The second image seems like a nice compromise between a Gothic and modern x.  The last example is a Littera Bastarda x, with a crazy descender.
I don’t worry too too much about mixing scripts.  I’ll take readability over historical accuracy any day of the week.  Or sometimes, one style is just way more fun to write, so it sneaks into other scripts I’m practicing.  If I’m really serious about it, I’ll try to match, say, a more angular x to a more angular style, or a more rounded x to a curvier style.   
I hope that helps!
