SOULQUAKE


Not even a destroyed friendship of ten years gets in the way of you loving Firefly - just because he introduced you to it.

....you're on a road trip with some friends, a trip in which you had to wake up quite early in the morning for and as a result have not said one word in over two hours. The first time you speak is to say "Hey Sean, look at the name of that bank...Alliance Mutual...ah..first one [FF refrence] of the day, it feels good." Then think...man I can't wait to go home so I can post this on that you know you're a browncoat if...thread.

You are a Browncoat if you search frantically everywhere for the Firefly boxed set and cannot find one (so, hence, you are close to tears). Then you ask the nice lady that works at Barnes and Noble, and when she hands the set to you, you blurt out 'I love you!'. While you're speaking, you lurch forward like you're gonna hug her.

However, your mother grabs your elbow and keeps you from further embarassing yourself.

...your Chinese friends say..."I do not understand the words that are coming out of your mouth"

...You no longer refer to your significant other as "my companion" for fear they may ask..."Is she registered"?...

you give student's 50 points extra credit for seeing Serentiy and writing a paper on one of the characters and add an extra 50 for the kid who threw in references for Firefly

You're only young once, but you can be immature any time!

yeah ok you know you're a browncoat if so far today you have almost flooded the basement by getting distracted by threads and leaving the water on the new bedding plants for so very long, then you get so in to reading everyone's posts on you are a browncoat if that you forget it's the gardner's day and the only thing that brings it to your mind is the sound of him starting the mower, which causes you to have to run out and clean up after the dogs ( because I can't in good conscience make the gardner do it) so you run around like a maniac cleaning up after them all the while thinking, when I get done I am so posting this....grin
and deepgirl all you have to do is move to Utah and be young enough to be in junior high. Oh and of course you have to go to my school.

You're only young once, but you can be immature any time!

While playing WoW you are slightly disgruntled that the good guys are called the "Alliance" and wonder if any of the "Reaver" type creations in the game are cousins with the ones on Firefly and Serenity.

You take a picture of your roommates black lab/mix dog named ZOE and your red Miniature Pinscher who you have dubbed as "WASH" together.

Your roommate fire back at you "Some people juggle geese" as a retort.

And all of the other obvious ones... like Gorram it, Shiny and Go-se in day to day conversations..

You read this entire post in one sitting and you realize you are on Fireflyfan.net more than any other website during the day.

....as a month old Browncoat, you're excited that someone resurrected this thread so you can play too!

....you don't mind dropping food in your lap because it gives you the oppurtunity to say that it is being problematic.

....your driveway is covered in flower petals from your appletree, and as you walk acoss it barefoot you think "look at me, I'm River!"

.... while watching a production of "Miss Saigon" you almost laugh out loud (at a point that laughing would NOT be appropriate) because one of the characters is kneeling in front of a small altar and "Dear Budah, please bring me a pony and a plastic rocket" pops into your head.

.... you are excited by the necklace your future sister in law bought you 2 years ago, because it's a leaf and it makes you think of Wash, and anything that makes you think of Wash makes you smile....except shish-kabob.

OH! Also, you are currently watching "I, Robot" (on FX) and even though you're not enjoying it, you keep watching just to hear Alan Tudyk's voice.

...you travel several hundred miles in order to be an unpaid extra in a fan film. With your bestest Browncoat buddies of course.

...at work you remark that the new and very slow computer system is "destroying my calm."

...you divide your free time between two great Browncoat charities. CSTs and KNTR.

....you read Firefly/Serenity fan fiction.

....you go to your first con and spend all your time and practically die when you get a picture with yourself in between Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk.

You look for your DVD set to check on some scene you want to review, or because somebody mentioned something about it, and finally remember that all your sets of Firefly DVDs are lent out to Browncoats-in-the-making. Then you remember you haven't lent out your Bluray Firefly Set!! AHA!!

.....a TV series broke your heart.



Some days I wonder if Serenity was our greatest defeat.....DVD's help. Been missing FF a lot the last few weeks is all.

On a happy note, I work in a call center and say shiny a lot. You would shocked how many people get the reference.

You go back into the archives and drag up a three year old thread titled "Your a Browncoat if....."

Of course just posting in it and keeping it alive is probably a good sign of addiction.

BORIS


You know you're a Browncoat when a) you have not one but 3 copies each of the Firefly and Serenity DVDS. One to watch, one as back up in case the first one wears out, and one to lend to friends who are bored and want something good to watch.
B) you buy the blue ray versions of both Firefly and Serenity even though it will be a while before you can afford blue ray technology, on the assumption that you will one day.
c) you get excited but a little sad everytime you see any of the actors, writers, or crew involved in other projects and watch them just because they are involved as you know they will enhance whatever it is, even if their part is small and may go unnoticed by others.
d) "Can't stop the Signal" is one of your mantras

Keeping order in every verse


You know you're a Browncoat when you ask somebody a favour with the words "I'd consider it a kindness".

When you're in a heated meeting and you utter the words "Everyone's makin' a fuss" much to the consternation of your boss.OHHH the embarrassment

...It runs in your blood.

Today, I found out that my grandparents watch and love Firefly/Serenity... they're so into it, they even cry when watching Wash die...

It was such a trip. O.o

You know its a great show when a teenager and her grandparents can watch it together.
