SAINTSERENITYSYDNEY


A friendly greeting to every brown-coat out there. Im new to this fansite & must admit at 23 years of age, this is my first membership to any fansite, ever. I just felt compelled to search for & possibly join such an awesome looking site that deals with anything serenity/firefly.

A little background, i reside in Sydney Australia, & like many fans, i too discovered the joys of the series much too late & caught my first episode well after its cancellation unfortunatley. Nevertheless, im always thankful i was lucky enough to catch this show in my lifetime no matter how brief.

I am a keen collector of signed memorabilia dealing with serenity/firefly & have numerous signed photos framed up in my office/room. I was lucky enough to meet Summer when she came to Sydney in 06 at the SuperNova Convention which was one of the greatest days of my life. Not just because of meeting a cast member, but it just felt like i belonged there & was totally comfortable in the presence of other sci-fi fans enjoying the whole convention experience.

I hope i get the same feeling here as i did that day in Sydney & if anyone is willing to show me the ropes, thatll be much appreciated.

Cheers All.

Welcome!

I have been showing new folks my favorite thread. It is in the Episodes forum and is "Ten Things I Learned From Watching Firefly". Very funny, and it has my first post.

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


Welcome home!



I will repress my mad jealousy at you meeting Summer... Mostly.

If you have any questions there is bound to be a thread somewhere that answers them. Look around, read up a bit, and if you can't find what you need, just ask. Please dive right into the discussions, as we can always use more people to talk to!
FollowMal should be along at some point to give you a Virtual Browncoat, kind of a traditional greeting around here. I wear mine with pride. Others will be along to heap food upon you. It's all pretty good, but the ice planets can get a bit messy and problematic.

Welcome Home, SSS!

We're glad you are here!

This is a great site and I'm sure you'll have fun here. There's a lot to do and see here on fff.net. Watch the River Tam viral videos, read the unaired script "Dead or Alive", read the Firefly books...

Post well and post often. We look forward to hearing from you.

This is a friendly place. You'll feel right at home.

Welcome SaintSerenitySydney! I'm in the same boat with you, 23 and a first timer to an official fan site!

I'm sure everyone is going to be inviting you to share in a glass of Mudder's milk or a plate of strawberries! I'm still trying to navigate through this new 'Verse too!

Good to have you here!

Welcome home! We're glad you found your way here. Another Australian Browncoat! Well, not that I am one...I live in Alabama...but the number of Australians has been growing! Hopefully one or two of them will drop by to say hello!

Don't feel odd about joining your first fandom at 23...I was 34 when I found this place, and it has been home ever since.

Again, welcome, and I hope to have the chance to talk to you again soon!

Got to run to class, but just wanted to say, "welcome!" My job as part of the informal welcoming committee (which FollowMal could make official, hint, hint), is to say, "FollowMal will most likely be around shortly to issue you your very own virtual brown coat."

Thank you for your kind welcome. This is has been a great first experience. I couldnt help but notice that many people have all soughts of shiny stuff attached to their messages like logos & pics. How would i go about getting a personalised pic next my user name?? By the way, yours is very nice.
Cheers

Howdy.

I'm new to these parts, too. Been a Firefly fan since it aired and participated in the early write-in campaign when it got canceled...Like you I never got into the fan-site thing myself either. I lurked for a few years in the background but only recently registered as a member here.

Be safe!

Check here http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=5&t=22105 and here http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=5&t=24462 for tutorials and information on how to post images and do personal avatars. Remember, photobucket is your best friend
Well, one of your best friends. If you want something fancy and shiny like mine you need photoshop
BTW, I am always happy to shrink, add to, or mess with any pictures that anyone wants to use for their avatars or signatures. Just drop me a wave from my profile if you need graphic work!

Welcome home, SSS (#24560)
and also to Iwen (#24227, de-lurking)
This crew just goes on growing.

Please share these lovely strawberries and
slightly less lovely Mudder's Milk so you
can keep up your strength while you stow
your stuff and climb those many steps up to
the galley, where there is yet more warmth
and the infamous buffet.

Please share the Firefly goodness wherever
you can, Podal or Anti-podal. Folk need it
but they don't know it yet. ::-)

Wow, I'm amazed at how many new people there are since ChristmaHanakkwanzakuh! Surely the tv people gotta be takin' some notice. The TV ratings people called last night and my hubby did a survey and he begged the survey taker to have them bring back Firefly... I wonder if we could all call the ratings people and do the same...Research, people RESEARCH!

Anyway to my fellow newbies, WELCOME! Both me and BonaNaCroin make a mean EarlGreen (hot and steamy, light and sweet!)

Hi SaintSS!

I am such a lurker, I just can't help it! But I had to reply - I am also a 23 yr old Sydneysider who went to supernova last year!

I got myself 2 signed Summer pics (and a Clare Kramer... now she was so great! Had a really good chat with her. anyway..)

Just wanted to say howdy.
