OK. I finally stopped lurking. I absolutely love this site and I'm on it all the time. I read the fanfics, view the beautiful artwork, follow the discussions, and get teased endlessly at work for having this site up all day long. So, I figured it's time to stop hiding.

I have never done this before, like a lot of people around these parts. I'm thirty-ish, highly educated, and very much in love with this cancelled TV show. Go figure!

Thanks for letting me be a part of this group.

Arislyn

Also, I can kill you with my brain.

Howdy, and welcome to our little Haven in the black, Arislyn ;p

Lots of shiny, friendly people here, which I'm sure you've noticed if you've been lurking for awhile. And good to see you've decided to delurk. I always enjoy seeing a new face.

Keep the faith, spread the word, and hold the line.

Thanks for the welcome!

I've been spreading the word since I discovered Firefly, converted eight more to the cause so far, working on a few more.

Now I am learning about scary.


Here's another welcome! I'm glad you decided to post and hope you'll do the same again. You're already way ahead of me in converting, so keep up the great work!

Yeah, but do you also have to put up with coworkers reading threads over your shoulder like I do? Makes me paranoid!!!

well it's about TIME you popped in and said hello.. you know we were all just waiting for you to get over that shyness and say howdy.. of course WE could have said it first.. but well erm.. you know how that can be.. maybe you WANTED your space and all that.. but since you clearly want to make your voice heard.. WELCOME.. that will be two verses of Hero of Canton and two of the Serenity theme and we'll be alllll satisfied..


FollowMal will bring your coat along shortly... I think she's in with the cap'n and the hatch is shut.. either she's getting chewed out.. or she's watching him sleep again...

welcome aboard!!!

Chindi (rolling her eyes...)

Yes, I've seen/read it all, multiple times. I pretty much own anything and everything I can find, including some shirts and jewelry I found right through this site.

I'm glad I'm not alone in my obsession.

well periodically I feel it is important to post the links in case we have some new people who haven't discovered some of the goodies
(can you believe we have newbies who post to tell us about the EasterEgg on the Firefly DVDs! LOL

yes, there is no shortage of the obsessed....

I totally agree, Embers!

That's actually how I discovered all the stuff I'd been missing...some nice Browncoats posted a shiny list and I very much appreciated it.

Arislyn

Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret.

Hey, Arislyn, pull up a strawberry and sit a spell. Isn't it a relief to de-lurk?
As to those teasing co-workers, convert 'em to 'Coatism!

Thanks for the strawberries, my favorite!

Those pesky co-workers...one is already a fan, which is great. We're forever quoting it and making the rest of the group wonder just what is so gorram funny! Unfortunately, the others don't like SF/F stuff and won't even try it.

Oh, well! Their loss.

Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret.

Arislyn it's obvious you need a better class of co-worker.
Time we get you a job keeping books for Badger or something. Perhaps there's an opening in the offices of the Eavesdown Docks.
Meanwhile, expose those fun-lovers to the Fruity Oaty Bar song, the ear-worm par excellence.

WELCOME Arislyn from AZ,

SHINY to see you. Don't worry, I deal with nonbelievers every day. I'm a male and I work with only dudes so I understand when you say that some are not si/fi fans. Thats Ok, maybe its just not their cup of tea. But when they say that si/fi is just plain unrealistic I have to LOL.

these are the same folk that see "Rambo" as a god. Go figger.

Ps: I enjoyed Rambo too. R2&3 where a bit wacky for me.

Thanks, everyone, for your warm welcome. I expected nothing less from Browncoats!

Working on the job situation...cow-orkers are never fun.

I love it here on Serenity, don't think I'll ever leave.
