Hello everyone,

Huon here. I was watching Firefly again, and something in me snapped. There is no earthly reason why this show is not on the air right now! I have a plan that will 100% work.

As we've said in the poll, over 22000 of us would spend $100 a year to see Firefly revived. Now we can't necessarily give the money directly, but we can do better.

Here is what we can do to bring Firefly back within the year:

On September 20, 2012, show the networks that Browncoats everywhere are serious. We love Firefly, and we are prepared to express it in a big way. On September 20, 2012, we will all go out and purchase multiple DVD/Blu-ray copies of Firefly and Serenity. We will give them to our friends and hold marathons of the series.

Everyone, go out to your local store and tell them to be stocked and prepared. Email distributors. Remind the networks they can't stop the signal.

In the meantime, please sign this petition! In the past day, we've picked up about 200 new signatures.

You missed april fool's by a few days.

I assume your 100% guarantee comes with a money back clause and you will refund anyone who participates in this if Firefly does not come back within the year.

Of course it's a 99.6% percent guarantee ;) kinda like when one says 100% fat free.

If we all rally, they will take notice, and don't you just want an excuse to get a friend a copy of Firefly if they haven't seen it?

There will be fire and brimstone and Earth will be destroyed!... in several billion years!----------------------------------------- "Well, so long Earth. Thanks for the air... and what-not." -Philip J. Fry


Unfortunately, Huon...that's what a lot of us have been doing for the last ten years... Every time my copy of Serenity got a scratch we just bought a new one, and I've given away a couple sets of FF...

I think most of us have come to the conclusion that money doesn't actually talk... I think it has more to do with timing and a fickle Hollywood's inclinations than anything... But I commiserate with yer snapping...Most people here just get sad I think, but I snap all the time. It absolutely drives me crazy that we have no say, as crazy determined as we all have been, you would think something has gotta give. I'm a firm believer that if you want something bad enough all you have to do is keep at it, but it seems FF is the exception to that rule.

I would love to DO something big for September, but I admit I'm not good at organizing people, and after ten years most I think most flans are reticent to put much energy into anything, since our efforts have come to naught so much lately.

I don't know where we're going- or why we're in this handbasket- but I'm still holding on for the chance of one hell of a ride...

I still think the best bet is to do something impressive at DragonCon at about the same time. Such as a flashmob reenactment of the Battle of Serenity Valley, as interpreted by some variation of laser tag.

Serenity is returning! And nobody had to petition Zack Whedon to write the comic executive produced by Joss Whedon! Sometimes good things just happen without fan participation, which applies to the original Firefly.

We are nearly up to 1000 signatures.

Personally, I am looking for the excuse to spend some of my hard-earned money to support Joss Whedon. He reliably creates stories that are complex and insightful. I will be buying several copies of Firefly in Blu-ray anyway. Let's make a huge statement and have Firefly hit #1 sales again in it's 10 year anniversary.

You want to make a huge statement? A plan that will be harder for Hollywood to ignore is one that sends the money directly to Joss Whedon's agent, bypassing the retail middlemen. You buy more attention in Hollywood with a $1000 bribe than from buying a gross of Serenity Blu-ray/DVD combos at $8.49 each from Amazon.

The sooner Joss' agent sees a suitcase full of unmarked hundred dollar bills, the sooner we see Serenity II.

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


All I know is that I've bought approximately 15 Firefly DVD sets, 3 Firefly Blu-Ray Sets, multiple copies of all Serenity releases, both DVD and Blu-Ray, plus multiple copies of all the comics, all the visual companions and essay books, as well as T-shirts and a lot of the QMX offerings, and yet we still have not gotten anything extra in the way of filmed content. What more can I do?

At this point the only thing that will likely get us more is if a Browncoat wins the lottery and donates a portion of their proceeds to Joss.

I do hope Joss Whedon was only being witty yesterday when he answered this remark on Reddit :
Just an idea. Put Firefly season 2 up as a project on Kickstarter and see how much money you can get to buy the rights and make it happen.

Joss Whedon answers:
Step 2: Cancel Castle. Step 3: Cancel Homeland. Step 4: Generally destroy everybody's careers. Step 5: Avoid Step 2. End of Joss' comment.

There needs to be a Step 0: Joss signs the petition. Until that happens, everything else is futile.

Use of the word "futile' creates exactly that.
As a recently converted Browncoat, I feel it may be better to acknowledge someone who is trying to start some action, and maybe the petition is a step in the right direction.
I can totally understand the weariness that the original Browncoats may be feeling, especially after 10 long years.
However, there are many new converts around the globe, and I see regular recent posts and comments everywhere.
I'm in the UK, and we never even had Firefly on mainstream TV, so the awareness is low. However, we owe it to the USA Browncoats who made it their mission to fight before, and we are now spreading the word here as best we can. I have already seeded Firefly into the Police, and it seems to be spreading pretty quickly already.
I think that many fans have gotten into the habit of communicating within their own circles only, which is a bit like standing inside a locked church, preaching to the already converted.
2012 would be a good year to relight the campaigns, getting the word OUT into the unaware public mainstream. Even a few posts on Facebook etc., is better than nothing; or a new comment on YOu Tube videos, and so on.
If we can start to show our US buddies that we're starting to misbehave, it may give them some new morale boosts to add their venerable expertise back to the battle.
We are starting to come up with some new ideas, but could do with more.

I say Support THe Petition. What have we to lose?

Today there are 1,228 signatures out of 100,000 goal. To relight Firefly will take a 1,000,000 signatures on 1,000,000 bank drafts for around $20 each. Maybe more signatures or more dollars. That is the kind of signatures that bring a show back to life.

On the first incarnation of Firefly, it only took dozens of signatures on contracts between producer, distributor, and broadcaster. That is because Joss' signature on a contract is more valuable than $20. Joss' signature on this petition would be very valuable. It might be essential. Life or death essential.

I say if we increase the number of signatures we increase the number of signatures, but let's set clear benchmarks and work from there. There is no reason why this shouldn't work.

I am itching to buy 10 copies of Firefly and just give them as presents to any of my friends who haven't seen the series yet. Pay it forward! Buy a friend Firefly and, if she/he likes it, then pass it along. I would just love to see how high we can boost the sales in that week, and see Firefly hit number 1 in the charts on it's 10th anniversary week.

But, yeah, if Joss Whedon says anytime in between now and then that he would rather take donations, then I'll happily do that instead. This way though, you support the DVD/Blu-ray sales and spread the popularity by giving out the series as well. Win-win! Good luck everyone!

Huon

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Congratulations and thank you everyone for spreading the word reaching over 1250 participants. From here on, we will definitely continue to grow exponentially and send the networks a resounding message. Executives are beginning to see that there are huge opportunities in reviving masterpieces like Firefly and Arrested Development.

Please don't forget to send this think to all your friends on Facebook and Twitter:

Join me and get the word out on the message boards and across all the Internet. We know that the support for Firefly is there, and we can help this movement spread like wildfire.

For any fans of Castle, and indeed for any fans of Firefly, we just had a real treat with Adam Baldwin guest starring and teaming up once again with Nathan Fillion. It was a great episode!

Believe it or not, that's been my plan since it was cancelled. I would take it one step further, I would establish and incorporate a film production company - it's main purpose - get Firefly back on air or Serenity 2 & 3. I would also contact other lottery winners ($100M plus winners) to ensure that we get the original cast plus all our favs - Saffron, Jubal, Badger, Monty, Niska, hell even that captain who briefly took over Serenity in OoG.

Here's to the next multi-million dollar lottery winner being a Browncoat!

The Serenity Fund

The stated mission of the Fund: To raise sufficient capital to produce, or invest in the production of, Serenity II.

The Fund starts it`s life as an ordinary, run of the mill Mutual Fund, preferably with a low risk investment profile. Unless and until a milestone is reached, the Fund will remain an ordinary Mutual Fund, with no more or less risk than any other similar Fund. Indeed, if the Fund were to to perform well, someone might invest in it that had absolutely no interest in the stated mission.

At reaching some capital milestone, an announcement is made that mission-related efforts will commence at at specified time. Anyone that wants can thereby withdraw from the Fund and not participate in the mission.

The Fund, if and when it reaches sufficient capitalization, would engage professional representation at a significantly high and serious level to achieve the Fund`s stated goals. If the project does become produced, the Fund would hopefully see a return on its investment commensurate with similar returns by players in the industry.
