MAL! Him and no one else! Because... well because I love him. He's tough but can be so adorable at the same time.

And as for a girl. If I have to choose one it would be Kaylee.

Zoë: Captain'll come up with a plan.
Kaylee: Well, that's good... right?
Zoë: Possibly you're not recalling some of his previous plans!

Guy: Wash!! (see, i did that without even thinking!)Also, my life wouldnt even need to depend on it, he is so HOT(any wonder why War Stories is my favourite?)and sweet and caring and funny and... sorry, got a bit carried away there.
for the girl, can I just stick him in a dress and have him all over again? or is that cheating?
If it is, and I have to had to have a girl)I would say Zoe, to take her mind off killing me for sleeping with Wash!

I love Wash! Bring back Wash!

Do I have to answer or can I just leave my username at the door?

Why, Mr Washburne... if you insist...

For the ladies: Hmm. Ooh, tricky. Probably Kaylee, cos she's nearer my age and we'd have a giggle finding out if we were getting things wrong. Heh.

Although Zoe is awesome (being Amazonian myself I have a liking for that kind of woman) - and hey, if Wash walked in on us I could pobably get away with bedding him twice.

Find it interesting that the straight guys who aren't throwing themselves out the airlock are pretty much evenly split between Wash & Simon.

I don't blame you at all... I mean, Mal's alpha male and Jayne is just NOT a good idea for a first.

I just somehow thought Simon would tip the scales in that respect, seeing as he's pretty non-threatening. *shrug*

Yeah, I think Mal should definitely qualify as a "girl" when he's in his dress ...

And, Simon is nearly female, anyway. Sorry, but I like my men big and scary.

Wash would be a mite difficult, him bein' corpsified 'n' all.

But, assuming everyone from the show is well and whole, can I have Crow AND Jayne? At the same time? Then, if Zoe wants to jump in, too, I won't stop her...

*blinks in surprise* River's not a minor; she's 17. Not my type at all, though.

Guys - Mal all the way (I wish!).

Girls - ooh. Not sly at all so picking is difficult. Inara, I think - I feel that both Zoe and Kaylee have a lot of earthy sexuality about them but I'd find Inara easier to cope with *because* she doesn't have the same aura; she acts more silkily sophisticated. Also, she's canon bisexual so would be able to tell me what to do!

ZOID


Female: Inara. What can I say? She's just my kinda girl. Dark hair and eyes, for starters. Knows her way around the human anatomy, for the main course. Has a delightfully expressive face and physical grace, for dessert and between-meals snacks.

Male: I'm gonna have to agree with the ebullient Chrisisall on this one. If I have an inner woman, she's most definitely a lesbian, and is as disinterested in males as sexual partners as I am. For this reason and those enumerated above, she'd go for Inara in a big way, especially since she knows that character is not averse to the odd homosexual encounter.

If there were a female version of myself, 'odd' would definitely be a fitting descriptive. I barely pass for human as it is; any female who resembles me physically has my deepest sympathies.

But that's only if I were to be 'sleeping' with a guy. As far as guys I'd like to spend time 'bullshitting' with (another form of latent homosexuality, according to some psychobabblers), I admire all the Firefly male crew members, with the possible exception of Simon, who's a little too effete to be of use as a male buddy. (NB: http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/effete, def. 2.c., more so than def. 3.)

So, if the question were, "Which male would you like to go to lunch with?" or "...get drunk with?" -- and if I were pinned down to only one -- I'd say Wash. He's intelligent, witty, fun-loving, and a risk-taker. I think that'd make for a lively lunchtime conversation, and/or a wild ride of a pub crawl.

To recapitulate, I'd sleep with Inara, regardless of my sexual orientation. I hope that makes better sense to the reader than it does to me, since I've only got the one, and no internally discernible trace of the other. I'd go to lunch or out drinking with Wash, although that's a scenario that any of the male characters would likewise fill admirably...



Alternatively,

zoid

P.S.
Good lunch partners: Book, Simon, in that order. Good drinking buddies: Mal, Jayne, in that order. See the pattern? Wash would be the only one good at both, although the maître d' would probably give me a dirty look for bringing a dead guy into his beanery. Not so much of a problem at the roadhouse, tho' probably not terribly spry, should a melee ensue. Another added benefit: Could use the hole in his chest as a Lone Star longneck holder or ashtray. How many of your drinking buddies can you say that about?

P.P.S.
Although I'd never go anywhere to eat with Jayne, with the possible exception of a Jack-In-The-Box drivethru (did that sound homoerotic enough?), I think Adam Baldwin would probably be the most engaging and thought-provoking of the actors with whom to dine, regardless of venue. I've read some of his posts on the OB, and I like his argumentational style. I admire the way he asks questions of his debate adversaries, letting their answers prove his point. I also agree with him philosophically, from what I can tell. Adam seems well-read, knowledgeable, polite and deeply in touch with the world around him -- sorta the anti-Jayne, in real life. Ron Glass likewise intrigues me because of the remarkable life he has led, and through the remarkable times in which he has lived that life. Were I to dine with him, I'd probably just focus on his life and the stories he'd tell, which'd be a pretty one-sided conversation, and rude of me. It's hard to get through Nathan's 'life-of-the-party' public persona to see enough of the real man behind this mask. Being fellow Texans, Alan and I might very well go the entire meal in stolid silence... or in uproarious laughter, upsetting any nearby Yankee diners (and not particularly giving a damn).

Speaking as a wholely and securely heterosexual male:

Guy: Wash. That guy just has me pissin' m'self laughin' all the time. Of course, there's always the minefield that is Zoe, but if she were somehow brought into the fold...

Girl: River. Two years after Serenity. That way, she's both 19, still River, and... still River. And there's no way anybody could turn her down, because you just know she'd be so absolutely blunt about the whole thing. Second choice would have to be Kaylee (Gotta love that spirit) and Zoe (for reasons stated numerous times above).

I find it very interesting that (as a sweeping generalization) the majority of the heterosexual womenfolk in this thread are willing to at least entertain the concept of going sly, where the majority of the heterosexual menfolk (myself included) give answers that essentially boil down to "which of the male members of the crew would be easiest for you to avoid anything actually happening with".

I also wonder whether there's any connection between that fact and the way that (as another sweeping generalization) any straight man will respond to the thought of two women with a firm "I'll be in my bunk" where as far as I can tell it's pretty rare for a woman to have that reaction to the thought of two men.

Did you know that most writers of slash m/m fanfiction are women?
I just think in our society, women are trained to NOT express it, mostly because our men would absolutely freak-out if we said, "You know what would be hot? Watching you get it on with Antonio Banderas!"

Eh, the majority of women I've known in the past (since I know relatively none now) all claimed to be very weirded out by male on male stuff. If they feel it, I wouldn't say that women are trained by anyone but themselves not to express it.

Generally speaking, males seem to be born with the attitude to do whatever they can get away with. Females seem to put more thought into things, how they'll be perceived by other people and whatnot. Most men wouldn't freak at the mere mention of being with another guy, as long as they were confident that they wouldn't have to do it and that they wouldn't lose the female they were with if they didn't go along with it.

I actually knew a guy once who went out of his way to make people think he was gay. Actually made out with other real gay guys in public, but ultimately he would bed a woman when they let their guard down. Yeah, real piece of shit he was, even managed to take my first girlfriend from me with that act...

Anywho, I find the idea of any two beings, same or opposite genders, engaging in that act utterly disturbing. So for every extreme, know that there is an antitheses.

Hmmm.

As I absolutly refuse to breakup anyones relationship I am only left with those who are available and legal and not bound by holy oaths. That is to say Jayne and possibly Inara cause she is a companion.

If we are just talking about who I would find attractive. Girl=Kaylee and Boy=Wash (assuming I were sly or female which I am not)

However, I am sure we would all like to give some S&M lovin to Adelai Niska.

Hey, as long as it's loving, I think it's hot. I've read some slash fics that left me cold, and some that left me, well, not cold. I'll say, though, that I never eally thought about it before reading them. As far as someone I was with... Well, I wouldn't want to watch them get it on with anyone else, regardless of gender. But cute couples are cute, and they can be across the whole spectrum. There are some lesbian couples that are really not that cute, some that are; some hetero cuples that are also decidedly not cute, and some that are. See where I'm going with this? anyway, my theory is that it's usually the thought of pleasure that causes the "I'll be in my bunk" reaction. Women can be very good at pleasuring each other since they are, uh, quite familiar with the parts. The same could probably be said of men. It's not a regualr fantasy, but I can dig it.
That brings up another thought. another generalization that I might be totally off on: I, as a woman, tend to have fantasies that include myself. I think this is true of most women, which is possibly why we don't tend to fantasize about two men together. Where would we fit in? But men seem to be able to imagine two completely different people and still find it enjyable, which is possibly why they would fantasize about two women. Am I right?

I would have to choose Simon and Kaylee. I think Simon would be amazing once he let his hair down - lots of bottled up passion in that one ! ! ! !

Kaylee would just be so sweet and loving, how could anyone resist?

JAYNE ALL THE WAY!!!!! I have always been a sucker for bad boys and big guys. It would go better if he didn't talk too much, ya know, cuz it is Jayne, but still. (mmmmm hmmmmm.)

As for the girlfolk, i'd have to go with Kaylee. She's so damn cute, and sweet, and spunky. I'd hope she'd talk, and laugh, and have herself a good ol' time.

I wouldn't be violently opposed to Shephard Book. He's an attractive older fellow, and i think he would be sweet.

As beautiful as River is, i wouldn't want to get down with her. I fear her genius little brainpan would overanalyze everything and kill the fun. If she didn't kill me.


Oh, i am a tweaked one, yes i am.

Inara is seriously not getting enough thread-time here!

What's the matter with y'all?

Bloke: oh god that's so hard. Probably Mal. But I really wouldn't say no to any of them.

Hmmmm... this seems to be more multiple choice than I expected. I am ALL female and not at all Sly, but Kaylee has that enthusiasm for the moment that is so charming. I would also pick Mal and he might even be more of my first choice now that I have given it added thought. That is a man with deep well-springs of emotion, no question. Plus he would be loyal to the death once he made up his mind that you were the "one".

Ok, Suzfromoz brought up a good point that I aim to answer -- leastways for myself.

Why so few votes for Mal?

Mal is intensely appealing in a lot of ways, many of them physical. And I've no doubt he'd know what to do between the sheets. And I have the greatest respect for him. But I think my interest in Mal would be centered on a different type of relationship. I'd be buddies with him, work for him, work beside him, learn from him. Maybe be a sister to him. Some kind of relationship that wouldn't be damaged by sex. Because, I think with Mal, things can be damaged by sex and romantic feelings. So I'd also hope he didn't feel that way about me, although I'd be mighty honored if he did.

So I have a feeling that people aren't failing to notice Mal's qualities, of which he has plenty. I just think he inspires deeper reactions in people than merely sexual ones. Which could explain why more people don't take hold of his plough more often. Poor fella. ;)
