RAVENHAIR


hi all,
have been posting on other people's threads, but have been too distracted by amazing fanfic and lovely posts to formally introduce myself!

have been reading newbie entries and reliving my own experiences (second wave browncoat: saw the series on netflix last winter, movie, discovered fanfic, discovered this forum, etc.) everytime i watch the series (and i was home sick recently so sat on the couch watching the whole thing again) i still experience the frustration and desperation i felt when i finished watching the series the first time and realized that that was it. thank god for this forum!

needless to say i'm an aspiring browncoat, and at my age i never thought i'd get so wrapped up in something like this. this is the first and only forum i'm a member of.

so, bearing strawberries in a small wooden box, i humbly ask for a browncoat and a seat not too far from the table (i know there are many more before me).

Hey, Ravenhair!
Glad to see those berries.
We have some dip for them over here: chocolate and cream cheese. Cookies show up from time to time, and lots of lovely Asian food.
FollowMal (or whoever has the keys to the storage) will show up with a browncoat sooner or later.

*pulls up a chair right next to ya, and offers a hand*

...someone always hands out browncoats here (forgot the name), so i won't take that away from 'em.

If you love serenity/firefly and are completely in love with the whole of it, you aren't an aspiring browncoat,

You ARE a browncoat.

and i have a fic called Serenity's Story if you wanna read it.

You will be on this site, everyday, i can almost guarantee it...see ya around!

(I will take those strawberries tho.)

Welcome. I'm a three and a half year veteran here. Good to see people continue to arrive. You'll notice that many of the original forum dwellers don't post anymore since the second wave has taken over but we're still around and we'll post from time to time.

But as they say, better late then never. Welcome to our ranks. Now be prepared to do the impossible.

Oh, and play Cantr II at www.cantr.net.

i was thinking in terms of recruitment. so far i've only gotten my husband and kids (although they are far too young to watch every thing they know all the characters) on board. i'm currently working on my co-workers.

i love how so many respond so quickly on these boards! everyone's so friendly!

Oh that's quite fine in terms of recruiting. I actually never did 'active' recruitment, but I helped one person get into the series (right after she discovered it, I lent then sold her my DVD set), and just got another person to finally call himself a browncoat. Stuff kind of just falls into place sometimes.

It's good to have you aboard! {^^}. KF

First off, it aint REAL choclate, but we did try to get it as choclatey tasting as possible.

Second off, FollowMal nd Kaele have (at least temporaryly) put me on there welcoming comitee, so I shall give you a browncoat!

A shame they forgot to give me the key to the storage... so... *kicks open storage locker*

*Shakes out a neatly folded browncoat*

What was that thump?

Gorramit, Dog! You broke the hinge on the supply closet. It WAS unlocked, you know... Excessive force my arse.

*thwaps him on the back of the head*

Well, before Jaynesbunkwoman makes you blind with her milk-dipped strawberries, put summat in your gullet. No undue messes on the deckplates.

Ha gao and baozi are on the table. Go ahead and dig in and get a hot breakfast inside you. Gonna be a tough fight today, we got some hard campains we're working on and you'll need your strength.

Welcome Ravenhair. Always good to see a new recruit joinin the ranks.

And seeing as how it ain't protein substitute, it must mean we're welcoming another recruit.

Always shiny to see another new face out here in the black. Make yourself at home, and don't be shy about posting and making a fool of yourself. (That's my job... :)

Keep the faith, spread the word, and know that we'll all be holding the line when Mal comes back.

It ain't about how many you've recruited. It's about the love of FF. If you've got that, then no-one can say that you're not a Browncoat. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

If they do, you can send them to me.

It's the other Browncoat Board the one put up by Gossi when the Serenity Board was taken down.

Here's the link:

http://www.serenitymovie.org/browncoats/forums/index.php?

I tell everyone that FFF.net is home and that the other board is the neighbors with really good pics of Mal.

You have to register, it's free or you can make a donation, just like here. I'm over there as FollowMal. You'll see Jetflair, Fillionflan, Kaele, Chindi, OldFogey and lots of others that you know from here, over there on that board.

Please come join us, we have lots of fun Appreciatin' Nathan every day. There's also a thread over there that's just about Nathan as Mal.
The Appreciatin' Nathan thread is under General Discussions, on down the page and then usually our thread is up at the top somewhere. It's pretty busy today, so I'll bet it's AT the top.

Yo, 'snark!
Let's not be heaping the calumny on my fine cream cheese without having a taste. I got it off Badger on Persephone. Guaranteed A Number One Best in the system, kept carefully under refrigeration until the moment before its use. We all know the little man may be the very picture of scruff, but he has expensive tastes, so I trust him in these matters.

Chocolate said exactly that on it. Not "Choklit" or any of those other funky names. If it makes you feel as if you're in love it's either the real thing or an expensively-enhanced counterfeit. Melted right nice, though.
