*RMMC goes over to Floralbunny and hands her the liquor cabinet keys*

bun, would you do the honors while I'm away? I'd appreciate it.

them in a secret pocket*

Have a great holiday, RMMC!

We've been doing Llama Shots in the par-tay
thread, but I don't want to use up the Dew
or any other of the greeting drinkables
there. And it'd be so easy to do.

Here ya go, DarkFly (#21622), a drop of
the Dew for you.

And a symbolic strawberry out of the wooden
box today. Isn't often I run across berries
in Special Boxes but I lucked out today.

The virtual coat is out of my province but I
feel confident you'll get one soon enough,
whether it be permanent or temporary.

Bring your funny banner in so we can hang it
with the others in the top of the cargo bay.
Looking very shiny up there, I think.

Now come on up to the galley and settle down
with us and the big buffet. Chocolate ice-
planets ran out but I have here a re-supply.
And now we have sour cream for an important
layer of the Captain's Evil Repeating Bean
Dip. Just give me a hand with these bags of
chips, there's a dear.

Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome, and... welcome!

Tasia, thanks for your kind comments about "A Chance For the Black". I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

JamaicanBatman, great job on the conversions. If there's one thing the 'verse needs more of, it's browncoats. And love, sweet love.

Speaking of browncoats, I see that FollowMal has been too busy with other duties to hand any out from her stock of shiny new ones. So please, you two, grab one from my stack of patched-up recycled coats.

You too, Kingkiller, CarolJude, and Darkfly -- you three could use some leathers.

Now, don't expect a perfect fit or that nice fresh leather smell. It's pertty hard to find coats to repair. Funny thing is, nobody seems to want to give them up once they have 'em.

Still, if FollowMal ever gets to you with a pristine coat, you can just drop off the old one in the storeroom so I can pass it along to the next new recruit.

And please, make yourselves to home. Don't hesitate to jump in and talk -- we love stories.

I'm pointin' right at it!

Welcome Home, jamaicanbatman!
Nice coat...
Here's one of the very fine strawberries
we try to bring in fresh every day we're
in port.
There's a mug of Mudder's awaiting you as
RMMC has gone on vacation and left me in
charge of the Tullimore Dew. The keys to
the Cabinet are
*the bun turns her back, opens her browncoat
and pulls keys out of a secret pocket*
right here. Will you have a wee drop with us
and then come on up to the galley?

Second batch of Wife Soup is at the simmer,
ready to serve. Bao coming up. Cheese in
the chafing dish....

Hi All...

New recruit here...

Ive been a Firefly fan since the start but never really got involved with the community until now.

Ive decided to watch the series for the umpteinth starting tomorrow.. and while searching for a few bits on the web of info i came here... :) -

I thought at one point that I should go
to the place, wherever it was, that I'd seen
a display of the things hanging upside down
but realized with a jolt that The Place was
on Lilac where the robbery took place in
Serenity. Reality check, anyone? Sheeze...

floralbunnie, you made my day!!!

I've known about FireFly for about a month, when a friend lent me her copy. (yeah, I live at the bottom of a well) Once I cleared some of my anime backlog, the set only lasted 6 nights. I lost a couple of copies on eBay, but won a used copy of Serenity, which arrived yesterday. I ordered my own copy of Firefly from the link on our homepage today.

I spent a couple some hours reading at but don't remember how I got there? I THINK I got here somehow from WHEDONesque, but I'm really not sure... I was looking for some info on whether there was any chance of more stories after Serenity, or a way to deal with the disappointment if there wasn't. Kinda like Ron Glass in the extras when he says he's still waiting to not get all teary-eyed when he thinks of the show...

I think I'm gonna go watch Serenity and then... :-(

'Lo there. I'm Krys. Been a Browncoat for a while now. Saw a marathon of Firefly on Sci-Fi and fell in love. Bought the DVD's right after. Got Serenity right as it came on DVD as well. (Missed the movie in theatres by about two weeks.)

Saw Serenity on Showtime the other day and decided to check Wikipedia for any updates on a second movie or more comics. Followed the links at the bottom here. Nice place. Is there a thread for fan episodes/fiction around her, per chance?


Sunday, August 6, 2006 3:37 PM


Hi, I'm Browncoat26, brother of Morwen112 and this is my Firefly story:

At first, I didn't really like it because the first night my sister got me to watch it, I had had one of the most horrible days ever and I was tired so I fell asleep within the first ten minutes. But then, Morwen and my Dad and I watched Serenity, the movie, and I really liked it. My favorite character was Mal. And then my sister ordered Firefly and from then on I've been a Browncoat.

Wash is cool, too!

Your mouth is talking, you might wanna look to that.

*the bun stumbles in late-ish, unusually
dusty and disheveled, her bonnet hanging
by its ties, but she is holding aloft a
small wooden box. in it: strawberries!*

Welcome Home, all you shiny new browncoats:
NowhereMan (21807), Axeboy (21810),
KrysNyteshade (21813), Browncoat26 (21820)!

Here are the Berries of Welcome. Someone
will be fitting you with virtual coats in
a little while. There are mugs of Mudder's
Milk (and yes, j'batman, cider :-}) waiting
and *turning her back and fumbling among
secret pockets for The Keys* RMMC left me
the keys to the Tullimore Dew, if anyone
fancies a drop or two.
Buffet is upstairs in the galley. You've seen
the menu farther upthread.

If you're starved for more 'Fly, read the
un-filmed, un-polished script for Dead or
Alive here:

Fanfic, filk, fanart and blogs are up in the
top section above the main board. Up and down
the sides are more (and more and more) things
to discover as you allow the wonders of
to unfold for you. It's hyperdimensional

NowhereMan, I am honored to have made your day
as long as it wasn't in Eastwood mode.

Now eat, drink, be merry and spread the word,
all you shiny people. Firefly for all, and
the sooner the better.

bun, exhausted

I am Qwertyuipasd, or simply Qwerty for short. for some reason I am dictating this post to myself in a frenchish accent, but.... you really didn't need to know that...

anyway. I am just going to say that I am here.... and you know me now.... I actually have yet to begin the lurking, but fear not, I shall lurk like a madman! who lurks! alot! voraciously one might say...

so, shutting up now, and going to start posting. lovely smileys by the way.

welcome all!
-try it out, I dare you

98% of teens have smoked pot, if you are one of the 2% that haven't, copy this into your signature

I'm so into Firefly, my butt glows in the dark.


Monday, August 7, 2006 9:53 PM


Ok hi, I joined about 15 minutes ago, but not really being a big fan of message boards I posted something in my firefly log (?), just a hello really. I'm mostly here looking for graphics, because I don't have Photoshop, and for the company -- my efforts at turning everyone around me into a flan have only been marginally successful.

I'll come right out and say it -- I have a huge crush on Simon. Even though my favorite character is River. Or maybe Wash. I can't decide.

Well, that's all. I'm heading to sleep since in the misfortune of the real world I must go to work in the morning....


Tuesday, August 8, 2006 3:32 AM


Hey Peony! Welcome!

I tried to read your blog and it was deleted - you took it away?

Whatever... welcome to the site and be not ashamed at the crush! Mal is the man for me, although I admit that Simon is very droolworthy!

I'm the president. I don't need to listen.
