How I got around to being here
Wednesday, February 28, 2007

Wanted to write about this yesterday and, of course, didn't. But now is as good as any time. Along with that I should probably take the time for a couple of words on my person. It's way less strange then to read about why I'm actually here.

So, first for the rough details. I'm 27 years, going 28 this April, live in southern Germany. I study English and spend most of my time online. Why? Because I have no friends? Hardly. But because currently it is one of the few medias I can actually graps. Sounds strange, is that way though. I happen to be visually challanged / all the way blind (depending on the legal system you're in - they've got all sorts of funny definitions on when a person is actually considered to be blind). Other than that I work at a DVD rental place to make some extra money during semesters. Which is real fun with people rarely even noticing that there's something not quite the way it should be. I'm stealthy like that. *g*

Firefly. During the past couple of years I've heard rumors about the show. Nothing much. Couldn't get a hold of it for the longest time, mainly because I wasn't trying hard enough. The show just wasn't on sale anywhere near me - and back then I honestly didn't think about amazon. No idea why. Then the movie came out and a friend of mine had me watch it. At the time, not having seen the series before, it didn't make much sense to me. I basically shrugged it off.

A couple of months back though a friend of mine - with whom I do a lot of roleplaying (one of my main hobbies) told me about the show again and how great it was and that I should honestly give it another shot. Best advice I've ever gotten out of a person thus far. So during a stay in Dublin I picked up the DVD box as well as the movie, seeing as they had it on sale there. Ha! As soon as my trip ended I sat down and watched what I'd gotten.

And got hooked. And read up on the 'verse. Ordered every book that there is (eventhough I can't read them *g*) and did some research on browncoats and the like. In the end I was asking myself - how the hell do you actually become a browncoat? Better yet, let the other browncoats know that you're there! So I stumbled around on and eventually found my way here. Lots of stuff, lots of people - who strangly enough are all sorts of friendly. Odd. I should give it a try! And I did. So... Now I'm here, trying to get to know a couple of you.

Funny thing is... Usually I'm known for being either very easy to have around - or for being the most arrogant person around (that is if you don't make the effort to actually read _exactly_ what I'm writing - people get confused so easily). Only here things seem to be all different.

Well, I guess we'll see how that pans out. Curious to get to know more. Always curious about the folks around.

First day on board has passed now. And I keep on flyin'.

Welcome Solan! We're glad you're aboard. I've only been part of this wonderful crew since last summer so you're not alone in coming late to the browncoat party. Snoop around the site, lots of interesting threads...hope to see you posting a regularly. Some of us also signed on at SciFi forums so we can beg that network to continue airing Firefly. Good luck to you.
