Well, that pretty much captures it.
I'm one of those fans who just won't accept Wash's death. I posted the following elsewhere and got kinda blasted. But I don't care cuz it ain't Firefly without my favorite married couple.

Re: Wash's death in "Serenity". I am simply not willing to accept that in a fictional 'verse. I look to fiction as entertainment. If I want unhappy endings, all I gotta do is wake up! In my mind, until a film or series continuation says different, the crew put Wash in River's cryo-box to take him home for burial. Along the way, they got wind of an experimental medical process to record brain info to time of death and clone replacements for damaged body parts. They sneak Wash in in place of a politico who bumped a deserving recipient (ala PA's governor Casey who bumped everybody down the list for his transplant). Alliance bashing, witty dialog and some gunplay ensues. The Firefly 'verse returns to normal.

I will miss Book but his death was a more acceptable fit than Wash's.
One: Books death was important to the storyline and character development because Book was the catalyst to Mal regaining a little bit of his "rudder". Book's casual murder by the Operative and his dying wish, nay, DEMAND that Mall "believe" again made Mal and crew confront River's Miranda secret, rather than just run. Wash was sacrificed meaninglessly as a plot gimmick to create peril.

Two: Book was an individual who interacted with the crew but Wash was half of a married couple who as such made up an important ingredient of Firefly's unique-ness. To destroy that couple as a plot device is a cheap shot at all those who reveled in a mature, married couple as part of the cast ensemble. Which ties into,

Three: Book is a more easily replaced character. If another character with deep-seated religious beliefs were to join Serenity, (not a Sheperd but perhaps a person who wouldn't be stereotypically devout, say a blue-collar industrial worker who knows why he trusts in his Christian faith) the conscience-character would not replace Book but add to his legacy.
But if some "guy" just jumped into Zoe's heart and bed, it would be creepy and an insult to both Wash and Zoe.

Four: Also, Book's mysterious past could be explored in flashback, which would keep actor Ron Glass involved in the series without quite the level of sadness that showing widow Zoe's dead husband would cause. Wash is the "funny" character and there is little funny about being reminded of his death.

Summer Glau on xkcd... AGAIN

xkcd comic (old)
Firefly reference!

Tears BIG
for jondesu I've made this widescreen (1280x800) And this is the last version, I promise.

Weep for us
A better version of the previous wallpaper. Yes, I can make one in widescreen, I just need to know the pixel dimentions. (again, lyrics by The Guggenheim Grotto and screencaps from made in MS Paint.)

A Tear Isn't Such a Bad Thing
Wallpaper inspired by The Guggenheim Grotto's "A Tear Isn't Such a Bad Thing." Reminded me of something River would say. Lyrics by The Guggenheim Grotto (check em out, they're good.) Screencaps from

Lil Wash
This is a photo of my firend's small son, Abisai. He likes playing with his dinos. It reminded me of Wash. Perhaps this is what Wash was like. Though I doubt he speaks Spanish like Abi.

Can't you see?
K, another one. These lyrics are from "Window in the Skies." I believe they fit quite nicely. Made in MS Paint.

Beautiful Day
Perhaps not the best pairing for this lyric, but it works. Maybe later I'll try one with Simon and River. Lyrics from U2 'Beautiful Day.' I don't mean to flood (is 3 a flood?) No more for awile.

Blinding Lights
Yes, I do have more. These lyrics are from the U2 song "City of Blinding Lights." Once again with the 'firefly' in the lyric. The wanted poster was snached off the net, I believe it belongs to 11th hour. No infringement intended.

K, so I'm trying to combine my two biggest obessions. U2 lyrics really work quite nicely for Firefly! I also have a lot of Muse ones, but that has past. These lyrics are from the U2 song 'Kite.' Probably more to come.
