Feeling Truthsome
Wednesday, October 5, 2005

OK, this is gonna be more than a bit wordy. But these are things on my mind right now that I feel compelled to share. You may care, you may not, but I'm saying them anyway.

I'm oddly amused at the "outraged" fans who are "calling Joss out" over the events in the movie. (Yes, I have seen it.) Apparently the fan base has become divided; one over-zealous poster on the OB went so far as to wish cancer (I kid you not) on Joss, his family, and those who supported events in the story. To this fan and those like him/her, I have one thing to say.

Get a fucking life.

Yes, the "Firefly" universe means a lot to all of us. Otherwise we wouldn't be here talking about it. But in the end, it's just a movie. Say it with me: IT'S JUST A MOVIE. Does that mean I don't have a hard time accepting what happened? No. But it's Joss' world. It's his story. How he tells it is his decision and his alone. And as a writer, I have to respect that. Besides, it's over and done with. So shut up about it already.

(Harsh, you say? Yeah. So is wishing cancer on someone. I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy. That poster was a dumbfuck.)

Moving on...I have started my fanfic H&S. But, due to personal conflicts (I'm starting to realize the less I say, the less stupid I sound) and so-called "real life" responsibilites, it will be some time before I'm able to finish it. How long? I dunno. Maybe next month, maybe never. I hate to leave a piece unfinished, but it's long past time I re-devoted myself to my own universe. Joss' was fun, the characters very human and dear to me, and I find "Firefly" and "Serenity" inspiring. Now it's time I did my own thing.

So, that said, I may not be back around here for a little while. Or maybe even a long while, it's hard to say. Those of you who care, thank you. Your kindess will not soon be forgotten.

Keep flyin'.

Hm. Something in me doubts that that person never had cancer. Because if you have, you don't wish that on anybody.

Well, I appreciate your honesty. Not, y'know, a lot.
I kid. I kid.
