There's Mudder's and Plum Sake for those that do, and re-hydrated chocolate-y tasting milk product and de-exploded apple juice we got offa passing freighter last week...

And since it is soooo very cold outside I've made brownies with my special honey chocolate icing over the top.

Come on in now, and don't be shy... I've been here seven years now and I've only been stalked once or twice now (kidding!!!) It's all good, seriously!

I've been here before, but posting here because it's been a while, at least Mar 2012. Stopped in several times first half of 2012 and never got it, site seemed gone. Assumed it was deceased after numerous attempts. Glad to see it is here, anybody know what happened back then?

For those new since then, others have mentioned me as JSF for shorthand.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


There were some issues in 2012 with the site being down. Don't recall exactly what the problem wound up being, but I know I couldn't get to the site for a week or more and got concerned. Still here and we're still flyin'!

Is there where us civilized folks are expected to wipe our muddy boots at the door before saying hello to some other glorious Browncoats?

If it is, then I'm in the right place. I only just discovered you lot thanks to a certain documentary I never knew existed and then to find the place still active? Now that's a blessing. So, hi, I guess. :)

Hi all! I'm not that new, really, I joined back in 2008.... but I had a lot of challenges shortly after, and went into kind of a tailspin and had to give up some pleasures, like Fandoms and spending time on ze internets, not doing much....

Life has recently attained a kind of balance, and with balance has come longing for the Browncoat community and the joys and pains of the 'Verse. So I'm back! I have to say, I'm really glad this site is still up and active. A lot of places that I used to spend time on are down or haven't been updated in years....

I've been exploring the fan fiction here, with delight. I used to avoid it, but I've recently realized that fan fiction, written by other people in love with this show and it's universe, is really the closest we're all going to get to new episodes... isn't it? That and a few comic books.

So here I am!

I doubt they stopped being fans, but I think one of the major reasons for member defections was the heated arguments in RWED which spilled over into General Discussions and other forums.

SPOOKYKAT


Hello

Long time member of other fandoms (X-Files, Harry Potter, BtVS, Glee...yeah, I know, I know...one of these things is not like the other...), and I remember when Firefly first aired and was thoroughly confused, watched the pilot when I joined Netflix, but it didn't really connect with me for some odd reason. It finally connected with me after I saw it again a couple of weeks ago and I have a new obsession. I'm SO sad that there's no more of it, but glad it looks like the fans are still here.

Welcome Credos, Spookykat!

Yep, we're still hanging...There's only been a couple shows I've liked since, and they were all one season jobs too, and not half as interesting...

So where else would we go?

Sooo, a few days of man flu, filled mostly by finally taking Netflix up on it's suggestion that I may enjoy a certain show, which I heard of but had never gotten around to watching. Turned out to be the best thing I've seen in, well, quite a long time!

Of course, the film had to follow, and no sooner had the end credits started to roll than Netflix suggested I also watch a certain documentary. And thus, I learned of things brown, and coat-like, and a fanbase quite unlike anything I'd ever seen before.

I have to confess to never having been involved in any real kind of "fandom" before but considering how short-lived the TV series was, and all that was achieved afterwards, my curiousity was piqued and I decided it was worth investigating a little further - and in short, I wound up here. So, er, hi...!

Sorry 'bout yer man flu. (> Virtual mug of chicken soup?) Glad you found us, and wearing a Tartan no less! Hubby has a bumper sticker that says "Kilted for her pleasure"

I never was a "fan"atic of anything before I came here either, and boy they just can't get me to leave now

There's quite a few graphic novels have been done in the decade since (if that's your thing, I read 'em, but I much prefer books) and the sixth in the new series comes out the end of this month, so we're still plugging along.

Glad you could join us
