I live pretty much 5 minutes from the city centre...and lord how i wish i heard about browncoat activity near here! lol. The are all the crazy conventions but even arranging to get down near London can be a hassle sometimes. arg...see how we complain! lol. I used to live in Texas and it used to take 3 hours to get to the nearest large city so i guess I shouldn't be complaining. I am hoping they hold another big Serenity shindig like the one down in london not too long ago! Would totally take time off from work to go to that! lol sounded fun

Just thought I'd add to this. I'm a Hertfordshire based Browncoat. Somedays I wish I had Jayne as a passenger in my car when doing my daily commute into London....I could use his, er, 'diplomatic' skills.

There's no place I can be...since I found Serenity

Please forgive me, but I have afew questions not related to FireFly whatsoever.

First, can I post on this forum even though I'm a Yank?

You can post on any forum you wish is my guess! I am a Yank but started this tread as I am living over in the UK and was curious who else was near! As for archery...well I honestly don't know. Sorry!

Hi, i'm checking in from LEEDS, West Yorkshire.

I'm trying to organise 2 browncoat things:

1- Shindig, May 6th (see my thread)
2- Serenity charity screening, June 17th or 23rd
(still liasing with cinema PR people at the moment, but
fingers crossed)





I love my Captain

you Save it, you add your name and marker and then show it here, for the next person to see.

To show an image, well just incase you dont know, you create an account with somewhere like www.photobucket.com and upload it there, copy the images URL and then past the URL in this here forum. The map should then show.

Greatz!

I've been a fan since 04, and live near Edinburgh.

When Serenity (the movie) premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival back in 05, the ticket hotline, for the whole event, got jammed because of Browncoats.

A lot of UK Coats made the trek up, to see the special screening, which sold out super fast. The cast and Joss were there, and some (Adam Baldwin, Summer Glau, Morena Baccarin, Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres and Joss Whedon), attended a DvD signing at HMV on Princes Street.

There's an acre of UK Browncoats.

Some of the BDHs have appeared at the Collectormania conventions dotted around the country. (Jewel Staite comes to mind.) There have been Firefly/Serenity conventions too, based in London and Glasgow. They get quite a number of peeps.

I here, Gloucestershire ftw!

I spread the word much as I can, but that's all I can do. Hard to do much else when yer 17 though, especially since money becomes much more important.

Proud to say I've converted folk though!

We need more UK events to spread the word though!

Hey there Stranger! Long time no see! I was just reading through this thread and saw your post from way back when. How ya been? It seems so long ago when we shared that hotel room for that fantastic weekend.
(Calm down guys, I'm talking Serenity convention memories here!)

If you still visit the boards, drop me a line to say how you've been.

EDIT: Ah! Just looked at the date of your last post. 2006! Might be a little out of touch then.


To all the other UK browncoats on here, hiya! Another one from your ranks here. I'm in Leicestershire at the moment. If anyone is posting currently and wants to get together for a picnic this summer, let me know, we could arrange something.

Oh I'm still around! Lurking a fair amount but excited about Dollhouse!

I graduate in a month but can't afford the Masters course I've been offered a place on... so yeah... not the best time of my life.

It's all about the money now- and the fact I have none!

You did randomly pop into my head yesterday! How's that for timing! Hope you've been well and things are still shiny in your 'verse.

Taya! How great to hear from you!

Sorry to hear about the Masters. Drop me a personal message sometime if you want to hear about how I scraped together money for mine (loans from banks etc!)

So, no-one's expressed interest in a get together yet. Come one! A lovely picnic in the park somewhere, with Mudder's milk, stawberries, chocolate flavoured deserts etc. How could you all resist!

Well I went to one in London last year which was fun. That's quite central, but we could put it to a general vote. Speak up people! Who would like to come, where do you live and we'll pick somewhere in between everyone!
