And Mr. Universe? I know there were spoiler issues for a long time, but did we ever actually have a thread to say our goodbyes and drink to their memory?

If not, could we maybe organise one? When is the board's busiest time? When would suit most people?

Just throwin' this out there. The Wash wake party event got me thinking. It's okay if no one else is interested

I'm interested. Unfortunately, I'm much too new to know if such a thing has occured.

I knew I shouldn't have taken down the "Hoban Washburn Memorial Tower of Empty Beer Cans".

Anyone want to help me create a virtual new one? *places empty can of PBR on the floor and lights a candle next to it*

Feel free to add the empty container of your bevarage of choice. First person to knock it over has to...er...um...set it back up again!

in May of 2005 when so many of us saw the Advanced screenings there seemed to be so many folks who were freaked out (wanting to set up websites to force Joss to change his movie) that a proper period of mourning was definitely disturbed...
I did honor Wash & Book in my scrapbook by placing flowers by their pictures (but not telling my friends & family what happened since they were waiting until Sept 30th to see it for the first time).

So I'll raise my drink in memory of my beloved dearly departed....and add the can to the wall.

(always remembering that ALL the actors signed up for the sequels and I'm hoping that Wash/Alan and Book/Ron will have bigger roles in the sequels, due to flashbacks or dream sequences....

Select to view spoiler:


or maybe even clones and andoids...

Alas for our departed heroes. They made us laugh, they made us think, they helped make us Browncoats. What more could we ask?

Nope, DTH, there wasn't a formal wake.
Just a lot of anger and consternation
and furious venting, posts full of the
magic spoiler routine. I had it figured
out before I saw the BDM, though it was
still a shock.

Glad they'll have a wake at D*C.

Well, I wrote eulogies for both, apparently, I was being Mal when I wrote them. So they're basically delivered by Mal.

Wash's:
Just cause he ain't sittin' in his seat no more don't mean he ain't there. We all loved Wash, 'n he ain't gone from our boat yet. He ain't through. Man like that don't quite give up when he's dead, he keeps flyin'. So I say we hold. I'm holdin' till our Wash gets back.

Yeah, elements of our Browncoat-isms.

Book's:
Shepard aint’ left us alone yet – if there really is a heaven, he’s sittin up there, and he’s got a powerful will watchin’ over this boat – she’ll fly truer than you think. We gotta honor Book cause Haven got attacked ‘cause of us. We aint got a choice but to stick together now; Shepard’s gone and laid down his life for us, and we gotta live up t’ it.

All right then, let's make this a thread to say an official goodbye to our crewmates.

Here's to Wash, Book and Mr. Universe. One made us laugh, one made us ponder, and one helped spread the signal far and wide.

Nice reference to the show there. The "Shindig" reference was also fabulous and incredibly bittersweet.

Anyway...

Um, I don't drink, so I'll gently place my can of Black Cherry Vanilla Coke on the tower. Make that 3, even though I'm only drinking one at the moment... this is virtual, after all.

Much undying love, always, for our dearly departed...

Good-bye and love always to Wash... He made us laugh, repeatedly, and he flew everyone to safety no matter what danger was chasing them down. No one -- and I mean no one -- flies like Zoe's Mister! <3

Good-bye and love always to Book...
he provided advice and a touch of morality to our ever-misbehaving crew. Not to mention, a few close safes, due to his magical, mystical, mysterious past... will we ever know his secrets? Secret past or not, he truly had a "heart of gold".

Good-bye and love always to Mr. Universe... he helped Mal get that signal out. Praise him for that! May he and memories of his lovebot rest in peace.

Is this too cheesy or should we put together some sort of tribute/memorial to these characters and how much we loved them, and send it to Joss to arrive on Sept. 30th, for the 1 year movie release anniversary, to encourage him to work on a BDS?

We'll look forward to those pictures! And, I hope you don't have to face the storm. That would be bad.

I'm not sure what to say, though. I wanted to say "have a good time", i.e. with the other fans and all, but... it's a wake! That's not very appropriate. :( *tear for Wash*
