What brings me back
Wednesday, January 28, 2009

I used to write Firefly role-play over on When the game was still running, I would have the occasional difficulties with the other members of the staff - the SC and the other co-PA. They had a hard time communicating with each other, plus the SC was the kind of guy who would agree to a plot and then go off and do his own thing.

Back in June--three weeks after my Mom died suddenly--he eviscerated the game. Didn't just delete it. Oh no. He deleted all the threads. My work, our work, the cast's work, all of it. Suffice to say, I have good justification when I say I won't participate in any form of Firefly RP again. Ever.

There are some names I can't speak anymore because of it. John Coffey - his main character in the game - and Roger. Speaking someone's name gives them power, recognition. So I figure eliminating a name from my consciousness has the opposing effect.

In the dark times, pre-evisceration, when I felt more like a like a referee and less like a writer I would come here to to remember the shiny times of being a Firefly Fan. Sure, I was here very freshly from the Throes of Cancellation , but there was a great group here, and we were all about Firefly.

This site still is all about Firefly, and I cannot begin to describe how jazzed I am to come here and find at least three new posts that start with various versions of the words "new here."

We're still flying, and that really is good enough.

I'm so sorry you had all that hassle, and at such a bad time too. You're right, though - forget the name and take the power. They are just a speck of dust in the eye of the 'verse, and are unimportant. I know I can say for all us Browncoats that we're with you, and most of us *need* this site! And we need you too.
