I have betrayed Joss
Tuesday, October 18, 2005

I am a horrible person. There was a contest through an online magazine where you had to write, in 50 words or less, a scene where Jason Voorhees stabs some Hollywood celebrity. You could pick anyone you wanted. I decided to emulate Joss' writing style by stabbing him and Allyson Hannigan. The scene was meant to be complimentary, because I imagined him the tragic victim of haters.

But when I trimmed it down to 49 words, I had to cut out most of the substance, and that just left Jason stabbing two people in what I now realize reads as an angry reaction to Firefly's existence. I got an email back from the guy handling the contest. He said, "On a personal note, having seen Serenity, I totally agree with you." Why, oh why didn't I stab Fox executives instead?

I feel crappy. I'm sorry, everybody.

Thanks everybody. That makes me feel a little better. Thanks Miramel, but it was through a magazine's subscription-only email supplement.

This is why I love Firefly fans. We are all so nice to each other.

don't feel bad...remember Joss' commentary on 'Objects in Space', when he wrote that scene where Early threatens to rape Kaylee...and afterwards Joss felt so bad that he was capable of writing something like that. I'm sure he would totally get what you were trying to do.
Just ignore the contest guy who obviously doesn't get it.
