Yep, I know that. But nobody who hears me say it would! (even if they know Chinese, because I guarantee I'm not saying it with the correct enunciation...) Besides, what does it matter? It worked for Wash...

Last night I clicked on a link on a website and immediately reflexively said "Tai-kong suo-yo duh shing-chiou sai-jin wuh duh pee-goo did I ever not ask for Acrobat Reader!"

...When you walk in to the hospital where your MRI is you see someone smiling and think "Does anyone smile in hospitals? Its the core everyone's rich and happy" And boy I will tell you this hospital reminded me of the one on Ariel a lot.

...You know someone from Canton MA and call said person the hero of Canton.

you walk into a room where there is a tv and playing on said tv is an animated logo in an orangy brown colour in a script like font and you think hoorah, firefly is on, then get supremely sad when you realise it is a programme about psychics who arn't river, and not firefly at all.

when you are on jury duty and you take your computer with you so that you can watch firefly in the copius amounts of down time. and then find your mind wandering towards firefly related day dreamings when you really should be paying attention to what the witnesses are saying...

You are a Browncoat if......

'Gorram' no longer registers as a typo in your word processor spell check.

In Wash/Zoe style, you actually address your spouse as 'Husband', 'Wife', or particularly in the latter, 'Lambie-toes'.

You announce dinner as 'standard fare', or 'protein in all the colours of the rainbow'.

You tell people who annoy you that you can 'kill them with your brain'... and if you're too polite to say it out loud, you're thinking it.

You've ever checked your bed for 'space bugs'.

You've ever blamed 'space monkeys' for anything.

Wow...first post on a Firefly/Serenity site ever!
I'm a bit of a newbie to the 'verse...but here goes-

You're a Browncoat if........

A few days after seeing the movie for the first time, you're able to quote it directly and at length.

You get into a heated battle with your twelve year old little brother about how the Alliance is NOT ripped off of Star Wars....(Star Wars Alliance=good, Serenity Alliance=bad) because he refuses to watch the movie...

You used "Gorram" and "shiny" twice each the day after seeing the movie.

You spend hours doing extra chores (if you still live with your parents) because it'll get you that much more cashy money to get the complete DVDs of the show and movie, so that you'll finally know what all the more experienced Browncoats are talking about...(I must confess ignorance to the whole juggling geese thing )

You're taking advantage of your family's MoviePass with Blockbuster to keep the rented copy of Serenity until you can buy your own

You're choreographing a modern/Irish step dance to the end credit music...()

You've already got a Firefly fanfic going and are currently working up the courage to post it.

You suddenly realize that songs you've been listening to for years have hidden Firefly-related meanings...and promptly find ways to work them into your fanfic.

You realize that you are now part of another fantasy and/or sci-fi dorkdom (as my sister calls them)...in addition to being a Potterhead, Ringer (Lord of the Rings), Trekkie, etc...and feel ridiculously happy about it.

You tell your parents about the above revelation and they cry in despair...

You resolve to convert your fellow X-Files fans into Browncoats because, after all, Fox betrayed X-Files too...they just waited to gain our trust first...

You are shocked to hear that your best friend, who has a complete Buffy DVD set and almost all of Angel and who also worships Joss Whedon, has never heard of Serenity OR Firefly...and promptly insisted upon her watching the movie..



New to the 'verse but ready and more than willing to learn...

Yes! My husband and I were watching FMJ and there's a scene where the soldiers are looking down at the bodies of the dead and Animal Mother utters an unforgettable line. He's holding his gun, ammo crisscrossing his chest, and GRENADES hanging off his vest! I just looked at my husband who was probably thinking the same thing judging by the grin on his face. I laughed, "Hey, it's young Jayne!" I mean, it's like looking at Jayne's past even though he says he never fought in no war.

When reprimanding a student who will not be quiet, you say, "You're on the raggedy edge of getting a referral."

You have a five disc DVD player and three Firefly episodes and Serenity are always in it.

You wear a Firefly tee shirt under your school sweatshirt, and feel wicked because it says,"On September 30, violence is going to ensue".

You listen obsessively to the Signal, Firefly Talk, and Week in Whedon, on your hour and a half commutes.

You gloat because you get to cross Jayne Avenue twice each school day.

You give copies of Serenity to people who probably aren't remotely interested, but you still have hope.

You finally found a Browncoat group in your town.

You fall asleep almost every night watching Safe or Jaynestown.

All my ships are called Firefly (Serenity would be to obvious), I talk in the local chat channel like Mal reynolds and I never shut up about Firefly to other players 'Hey you are a new player, do you like Firefly' lol. If they say yes and I say 'my fave episode is Out Of gas', I then get no response. I realise then they don't get it :(

You say "zu fu ni" when someone sneezes.

Yes. Yes, I do. Almost as soon as I found out wheat it meant I started. Might not be totally correct usage, but I don't give a good gorram!

Ah, yes. And if saying "gorram" and "shiny" are second nature to you. Hee.

For what it's worth I thought I'd drop this link in here.

If the color Brown makes you really happy & the color Blue makes you really nervous.

If people no longer ask what "Shiny" "Gorrammit", or "Rutting" means because you've already explained it several times.

If any any of the following websites are in your favorites folder www.fireflyfans.net, www.serenitymovie.com, or www.browncoats.com.

If you have ever uttered the phrase “I’m a leaf on the wind,” while driving.

If you have ever rummaged through a thrift store to find an long brown coat, a pair of coveralls, a western style toy gun & holster, or plastic dinosaurs.

If you have ever found yourself humming "The Hero of Canton“ or "The Ballad of Serenity", and thought "If I hum louder maybe I'll meet another Browncoat!"

If you are no longer trying to curse in Chinese, it just comes naturally.

If you've seen any of the following movies and could care less who the "star" of the show was. The Matrix Reloaded, I-Robot, Independence Day, Saving Private Ryan, or Dodgeball.

If when you visit the local DVD store you feel compelled to walk by the "F" section.

If you were really mad at Joss Whedon for several days & got over it, because after all "In Joss We Trust." Than this just might be the shirt for you.....

... while on a school holiday to Italy, you get really homesick. To cheer you up, your friend (who will not be converted, no matter how hard you try) offers to listen to you describe Firefly. You instantly pull a folder out of your overflowing suitcase - filled with scripts, pictures and fanfics. You then realise you can't watch the DVDs - and have to settle for reading the scripts in your best character voices - and acting out your favourite scenes. And singing the theme tune, and Hero of Canton. You completely forget you were ever sad.

Sadly - she still refuses to watch the DVDs you offer her. Ahh well - I'll get her one day. She thinks Sean is cute.

I have a "lending copy" of the series - currently with my ex-boss, who when I asked her which was her favourite episode responded by naming nine of the fourteen - but not of the BDM. My own daft fault for not being prepared enough, in other words.



You are a Browncoat if........... your mental phraseology for convincing yourself you have enough of or a lot of something is to say you have "a crate" of it. This is fine in some cases, for instance apples, but not when you're in the toiletries aisle in the supermarket and realise you just told yourself you have a crate of ladies' sanitary products.

... you find excuses to put Firefly quotes in all your exam-texts. You've even found a way to code the lyrics to the Ballad of Serenity into your Drama notes. Anything for a bit of Browncoat support.

Only problem now is that, instead of learning quotes from "The Tempest" (the exam is off-book), you just remember quotes from Firefly. It's even more difficult now that I know Joss named Miranda after the character in said Shakespeare play. At least I won't forget the quote:

"O brave new world
That has such people in 't"

You know you're a Browncoat when...

It's Spring Weekend on your campus and all you want to do is stay in and watch Firefly episodes for the 100th time.

You think of your friends in terms of how likely it is that you'll be able to convert them.

You love strawberries even more than ever and try to eat tomatoes with chopsticks like Mal did in the pilot episode.

You look up night courses at local high schools and community colleges that teach Mandarin Chinese just in hopes of coming up with new and interesting swears.

You put up quotes from the BDS and BDM as away messages in hopes that your friends will ask about the references.

You own 9 copies of the comic (one for each character).

You say "gorram it" and "shiny" in regular conversations in spite of the strange looks received.

You sing the Firefly theme whenever you shower and your roommates love you all the more for it.

You feel a sense of vengence whenever people around you talk in the theater because you know they're going to that special level of hell.

You stay up all night to write a paper and end up writing fanfics instead.

You spend hours reading fanfics by other Browncoats and feel serene in knowing ther are others out there in the 'Verse just like you.

Mal: Never goes smooth. How come it never goes smooth?

SERENITYSLITTLEANGEL


... based on a recent survey of your friends/family:

5 - refuse to watch Firefly because of personal reasons
2 - refuse to watch Firefly because they don't want to end up like you (quoting constantly and swearing in Chinese)
1 - has watched Firefly and isn't too keen (why???)
1 - is the shiny Browncoat who introduced you to Firefly - gotta love her
21 - were forced (some at gunpoint) to watch Firefly and are now rootin', tootin', Firefly quotin' converted Browncoats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


------------------------------------
21 conversions and counting!!!

FIREFLYNUTTER


{this is wat me mum did after I converted her} brought her bed sheets becuase they were named 'serenity' and then when she walked into a bed store, when looking for a new mattress, and brought the one called 'serenity'... I couldn't stop laughing for ages... i was so proud :D

(NB it took me weeks to convince her to watch it and then when she did, she loved it and tries to convert all her friends by offering out my DVDs all the time {cept my friends usually have them})

->U have rips of firefly and Serenity on ure MP4 player so u can watch them at anytime (as long as u have battery)
->U quote so much firefly u start to forget to use proper english
->You take said MP4 player to work and impress all ure chums (who aren't as techno savvy) and sneak in playing the movie for them all at smoko (i got quite a few people to convert after that {to the movie, not to purchasing an Mp4 player :D})
->You spend so much time on this forum that before u noe it, you're back at work the next morning planning wat ure gonna reply that nite

...you want to buy an iPod Video because the only thing better than having all your music on hand at all times is having all your music, Firefly and the BDM on hand at all times - battery permitting.

...your computer is so ancient that iTunes won't work on it, and you're beyond the point of simple upgrades, so you're going to have to buy/build a shiny new computer just (okay, mostly) to aid in getting mobile Firefly.

...you can't decide which Firefly/BDM quote/reference to have engraved on the back of said iPod.

(It's all true, and my wife thinks I'm crazy. She's probably right.)

...you're dismayed at the array of duster coats on eBay because so few are brown, and even fewer are even close to the right look. So your wife offers to make you one. (She may think I'm crazy, but she's still awesome.)

I liked the one about changing your existing personalized license plate to another one that's Firefly-related. I'm considering that too... sadly, the obvious (but very shiny) FIREFLY is taken, so if I go for it I'm going to have to get more creative.

Quote:

You reach out to talk with other browncoats to feel a part of it. Since you don't want Firefly/Serenity to fade into the black.

So true. I'm not exactly a social creature but this is something I can't keep all quiet about. Even if what we have now is all we'll ever have, it can't be left to fade into unknown history.

GEE


... if you finally borrowed the series and movie two weeks ago and now own both as well as a pair of shiny t-shirts much to the distress of your other half

... you seriously wondered about writing to the bbc to see if in their wisdom they would be interested in using your license fee to fund another series but in the course of researching discovered problems in both the way the beeb accept show ideas and that Joss was closing Mutant Enemy to work on movies and was concerned with what he wanted to do next.

... you are back in work after a week and there are roadworks outside that have been going on for days and you ask, "I bet you wish we had some grenades now,"

... you worry about people picking up your mis-quotes as you have a terrible memory fot that type of thing
