Oh Nathan...

If you want Nathan to keep talking about Firefly in interviews then back off. I'm sure Browncoats can show some patience and restraint if we all try just a little.

Well, now Nathan knows; there are some serious "Brownies" among the Browncoats. And maybe we got a reminder; Nathan can be very very playful, and he's just as human as the rest of us.

Although, really, it's about as effective to differentiate "Brownies" from Browncoats as it was to try to separate "Trekkies" from "Trekkers." Trekkers love to tell you, "I am NOT a Trekkie."

"Trekkers" are often saying that while dressed in costume at a fan-run science-fiction convention, waiting for the masquerade to start; a really high quality costume from one of the later series that is if not authentic, then exceptionally well-made. As opposed to the one who came in a classic Trek uniform shirt, badly-done Spock ears, "Klingon" gauntlets, camera, and bat'leth strapped across the back of his ST:TWOK denim jacket... for instance.

Mind, I was standing next to them in my brown coat at the time.

You have to be a "Trekkie" to know the difference, and the fact that there is no difference.

There is no difference between what I call "Brownies" and Browncoats either, because every single one of us whether we go River coo-coo or not has the same desire: To give Firefly its due. I, personally, would be happy with five full seasons. There are others who would want more - like eternity - but for me, five would be perfectly adequate. J. Michael Straczynski did a lot with five, and he could have kept it down to four.

Lesson learned. No more bandwagon jumping for me. I'll just go back to my quiet little non-canon Firefly RP and sigh wistfully over Nathan's Tweets. Situation normal...

A cup of very fresh wine to anyone who can finish that sentence.

I'm a Brownie, by the way. Trekkie too. Proud of it.

*there is no "Mr. I Told You So," but he knows who he is.

Reminds me, I was talkin to a fellow Browncoat friend of mine, who was always wondering why I never 'do' Mal for hallowe'en.
'You have the costume' he'd say, but I would point out, I haven't the right boots, or braces.
Or gun (That I dont mind, cuz walking around Northern Ireland with a gun replica or no, is asking for all manner of nastiness).
Anyways, Donno what that makes me. And don't give a good gorramn.
