(Note: If you shoot a Major Generals horse out from under him when he's under the protection of a white flag he just might be riled up enough to burn the White House)

Sorry I just couldn't resist it

Yeah, it's odd how much we'd learned from the redcoats in the war of Independants (excuse me, Independence). It's just that we couldn't find innocent women and children around to butcher like at Lexington and Concord or random Algonquins, so we had to pick on your poor armed troops. Sorry, couldn't resist.

And anway, don't you have the wrong site? Being a redcoat- aren't you looking for the Alliance website? I hear you won a good victory in Serenity Valley.

Oh, I forgot, one last thing- you do know the burning was direct ordered retaliation for the burning of York, right? They don't sell the reason for the burning as some dastardly colonial deed in Brit history books, do they?

You do know that many of the worst atrocities of the American War of Independence were carried out by the "Patriot" side right? If you don't believe me look up the Gnadenhutten massacre for example

Interesting spin on things. Of course I could counter argue that since slavery is apparently legal in the Alliance, and that the slave owning landed classes are very much on top in the Alliance, they have more in common with the American Rebels.

You know we Brits abolished slavery here in England in 1772 and that fear we'd do the same in the Colonies was a major reason for the Rebellion right?

In any case if you'd like to argue this matter further (and good naturedly I hope) how about you start a thread in Real World FFF.NET and we can take the topic there instead of continuing to hijack this thread?

No actually it wasn't in direct retaliation for just the Burning of York (Modern day Toronto then Capital of Upper Canada) but for all the other Canadian Towns burned too.

The firing on the White Flag likely did colour Major General Robert Ross's view on exactly how many buildings he was going to burn though.

Once again we can take this to REAL WORLD FFF.NET if you want?

I don't know anything of the frickin' kind. I know I can tit for tat you all day long with this one, so let's avoid the "many of the worst" weasel words, shall we? Also, in a technical historical irony, keep in mind the people who did the "Patriot" atrocities were British. I wonder who they learned their ways from, dad.

Darn, we'll never know. If only there were some document that listed the colonial's grievances against the Crown, then we could...hey!*

You know, you mighta coulda got away with that one if the Americans' hilariously named Founding Fathers hadn't kept such fantastic and voluminous notes. Unfortunately for your argument they did and we know precisely what was on their mind.

Then why did you say it was for a white flag disruption? I guess what I'm really asking is, which time are you telling the truth, this time or the last? You know, just to clear it up.



Quote:

Actually it was on written orders of the Crown's representative given immediately after York. Since your take makes no sense (they either torched towns or they didn't, I don't know of any historical proportional representation in rampages), I will assume you just kinda have a "differential truth equation".

I'm from all over, but currently stranded in London.
Was told by a friend to watch Firefly when I said the trailer for the movie looked good.
Went out on a limb and bought the series (£14 - total bargain!), loved it, then bought the movie and loved that too.
I wish with all my heart that it hadn't been cancelled, but the tragedy just makes it all the more special to us.
Most of my flat are unenthusiastic fans, but I've met three others so far in my small social circle who have fallen for the wonder that is FIREFLY!
Anyway, I should technically be working for another 14 minutes, so I'm going to keep tapping random keys while occasionally looking at some documents.

I'm a UK Browncoat (from Bristol), so yup, we exist all right. Like others have said, we keep quiet - well below the Alliance radar where we can do surprise attacks like buy lots of DVDs, unexpectedly boost sales, and insidiously convert others to the wonder that is FIREFLY.

I've also managed to convert most of my friends to the ways of the 'verse, so we're growing all the time!

we definitely do exist! I live in Nottingham, and have been a fan since i saw a ty advert for Serenity right in the middle of the adverts while i was watching Friends. It blew me away with its humour and effects. I went to see Serenity on my eighteenth birthday with seven mates- they loved it! A couple have bought Serenity on dvd, and i ordered Firefly off amazon and have wathced every episode three times! There aren't many of us u.k browncoats, but the number is getting larger all the time.

I hope I exist otherwise I'm an imaginary Welsh Browncoat!

On the "Lound'n'proud" note, in an earlier life I was an active Trekker, promoting my local chapter of StarFleetCommand in Stoke-on-Trent, and regular convention go-er. Then I graduated from University, got a job and had no money or time for my mad hobby. Now I'm a dad and have even less of both.

My fandom is now one of quiet subversion, converting folks to the 'Verse in subtle ways.

And my 4 year old daughter can now sing the first verse of the Ballad of Serenity! That's ma gal!!

Hey all.

I've been getting more and more into Firefly since I started watching it again and again and again and I've been sharing the joy with about everyone I can.

I'm glad Serenity hit number one over here and DVD sales are supossedly massive but I'm not sure it's enough! One can only hope anyway.

I'm down near Gatwick airport, infact I work there so any of you Yankee Browncoats who want a hearty welcome to this side of the pond give me a shout! :)

I guess it is a lot easier to get around Britain than it is to get round the States. I won't tell you the journey I have to undertake for my hol this year!!
Still doesn't help if you have to worry about getting time off work so you can travel to all the events.

Are you living near the city centre? And have you heard about any Browncoat activities?


I don't care what you believe in, just believe in it.
