When is the last time someone had said "You know this isn't real...right?" re: Firefly?

Or wait...I can't be the only one!

Mal: You know, you ain't quite right.
River: It's a popular theory.

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


Can't say I get that exactly, but I did get a "You know, you're a little scary with that show." today when I had a relevant quote for several different conversations and situations.

most people are so familiar with the way i obsess over books/films/etc. that they've given up trying to tell me i scare them.

actually, now that is a little worrying.

My daughter will remind me of that from time to time.

She'll very politely but sternly say... you know, Mom, this is more important than Firefly right now... this is real life, that is not.

And yet she is very understanding of my need to work at whatever I can to make a difference about trying to raise awareness of it. She's the one who suggested that myspace would be the place to really spread the word.

my husband calls me a Firefly Trekkie every once in a while. And when he does I remind him of who used the word Shiny in a RL situation first. He usually shuts up then.

One plan.

WHAT?! You mean I can't save up for a Jayne of my own? *Sulks*

Husband has given up - I warned him when we met that he got me and all the little voices...(I write, and when I'm writing, the whole 'Real World' goes away)

Hey the purpose of good fiction is to draw you in with willing suspension of disbelief and show you places you've never been and give you experiences you've never had and hopefully give you something that wasn't there before. It is meant to make a lasting impression and even change your life ( think Upton Sinclair's The Jungle or Uncle Tom's Cabin) and I'd say that this show has done that in spades... so relaity is relative. This show is real enough for me:)

All of my friends think I'm psycho over the show but they have just come to expect it. I think the mitigating factor was when I had "I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar" engraved on my ipod. And my ipod's name is Firefly, too.

None of my close friends say anything anymore. They realize it's not gonna change. They just roll their eyes & realize they love me & all my browncoatiness!

Exactly...it just hasn't happened yet.


I have been an anime fanatic for years along with all my geeky friends. So my friends and family are used to it. Though with Firefly and Serenity they are enjoying it as well as it isn't another of those damn cartoons.

LOL!

I have literally been forcing my mom to sit down in front of the tv screen and watch Firefly. She's constantly doing dishes, cleaning, etc...so i have to rewind the episode most of the time. She thinks I'm insane, so every funny scene I have to go "wait, wait, wait! This is hi-larious!" The worst I've gotten recently was "You're just watching this show to see Mal's bottom, aren't you?" So I get teased alot, by my parents, sad eh? My dad also teases me that officially the series dvd's aren't mine becasue I bought them for him for a present. It's hard to tell my friends about it because they haven't seen it. But I'm known for becoming obsessed with things so they don't mind. I'm thinking of having a Firefly-themed sweet 16 to introduce all my friend to the 'verse. (Although it would take alot of planning)

Party time!!

My husband actually bought me both the series DVD and a brown coat (3/4 length suede, goes with the boots) so he has only himself to blame.

And what's wrong with watching it for Mal's bottom? Or Jayne's...Jayne?

For the last six months I have been berated by friends and family about my "obsession" with all things in the verse. I just kept telling them you know me, i dont get obsessed first of all and second of all if you guys would sit down and watch the show or even the movie (although i recomended to them investing the time in watching the series first) you would see what I am talking about this is the greatest show ever made and you should see it! "No way, we dont want to see your stupid space cowboy show". So i just went about my business loving the verse with the support of my fellow browncoats online..... Until we decided to have a movie night and guess what movie i picked (BDM). Take a wild guess on there opinion of the movie (why didnt you tell us about this before).... Ask me were my 4 copys of firefly are cause they aint with me.

"And I think calling him that is an insult to the psychotic lowlife community."
