Written to appear in a friend's fanzine, sometime.

Here's how it is... )
caitri: (Is that a Firefly)
So we got the internet today (YAY); we're partially settled into the new apartment, with a lot unpacked and a lot still scattered around all higgeldy-piggeldy. The apartment is small so one of my tasks as I've been unpacking is identifying stuff that can go into our storage unit at the complex, while also trying to bring order to....everything else. Which, considering it's a mixture of my stuff from Texas and Scott's stuff from Atlanta means easy culls (we need one toaster and one iron, not two of each) and more problematic ones (the spice racks: augh).

I'm still studying for my language exam next week and alternate between feeling pretty good about it and freaking out. Because I am a spaz.

Anyway, in a fit of pique I tried writing a little bit and ended up with a scene between Jim Kirk and River Tam, for some unplanned post-STID crossover (no idea if it ties into the previous crossover or not). Anyways, for kicks, here you are:

Mal: "Ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. Know what the first rule of flying is? Well I s'pose you do, since you already know what I'm 'bout to say."

River: "I do. But I like to hear you say it."

Mal: "Love. Can know all the math in the 'verse but take a boat in the air that you don't love? She'll shake you off just as sure as a turn in the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughtta fall down...tell you she's hurtin' 'fore she keens...makes her a home."

Just so that I can make ice planets on sticks!




You guys agree with this, yes?

BTW the same blog has a recipe for homemade marshmallows!

Now check out this fanvid of a guy and himself doing a medley of tv themes. It's kinda mad briliant and also kinda scary. It also certifies in my mind that identifying themes is the bestest game ever.

Well, only the "going to Georgia" part.

I finally got the crap virus that's been going around, and rather than spend the next few days traveling AND hacking up uckiness (amongst other things), we figured the better part of valor was to just exchange our Christmas plane tickets for Easter ones and for me to stay in bed, or at least the couch.

So now I'm making the rounds of calls while Scott goes for more o.j.

Well, here's something seasonal anyhow.

So Browncoat Ball was pretty fun. There were maybe a hundred people at the whole event. Scott and I went to the programs on tai chi, filk circle, and fight choreography.

In fight choreography everyone got to pick up a wooden sword or hatchet and learn a set of basic moves. The instructors were really awesome guys and were very good with everyone, which was amazing as they had everyone there from people who just wanted to have fun but were pretty nervous (like me) about hitting other people to the people who just wanted to "win"--even when there was nothing to win. They apparently train actors for local theater and choreograph fight sequences for plays and the like, so they really knew what they were doing.

My favorite event was the filk circle with the Bedlam Bards. A few people also brought instruments and everyone got to sing.

At the actual shindig it was interesting to see who went western versus eastern. Interestingly most people went with Western, even though most attendees weren't local. Everyone really went all out and so many of the costumes were just dead-on Firefly outfits. We left early because we were bored--saris aren't really friendly to fast line dances which was what they were mostly doing, and Scott was bored because we didn't have anyone else to talk to.

One thing that did surprise me was how boring and uptight a lot of the attendees were. Which sounds mean, and I guess it is, but I've never been to a con where everyone was so serious about everything. There was a "heist" game where each table had to steal nick-nacks from other tables--it was sort of a role-play thing, with "Alliance officers" inspecting your papers and ocassionally confiscating "contraband" items. A number of people copped a 'tude about playing along--it was weird. Most Browncoats I've met were happy-go-lucky so I'm not certain what was going on there--I don't think seriousness is a symptom of the fandom in particular, in other words.

At any rate we largely enjoyed ourselves, and now we're back home and the furbabies are happy we're home.

The Browncoat Ball is in Austin this year!! Hot dang!

Alright, Browncoats! Who's going?

Scott and I are doing a Firefly-themed wedding. His family is non-too-thrilled, cos, well, they're stuck up in multiple ways. However it does cheer me to think of their faces when they realize they'll be stuck for several hours in a room largely filled with Southerners saying things like "We will rise again, gorrammit!"

We've decided to go with Scott as Mal and me as Inara. I've found a pretty red wedding sari that's very Inara-like (and at a fraction of the dresses I was looking at), and so far we've tracked down a proper browncoat, gunfighter trousers and suspenders, and Mal's gun replica.

Anyhow, here's this for some inspirational feeling, like:



I actually like this song sufficiently to ask Scott if he wants to do a dance to it... (Cos really, can you imagine the faces of the folks from New Jersey, New York, and Maine while it plays? I mean, really?)

Best damn comics in the verse.

Read "Yarn" as it is awesome. If you haven't been there before, check out "The Black" and "What It Means."

I'm linking to the Whedonesque thread as it has both the link to the Tudyk interview and lots of snips from other sources. I don't wanna be hopeful exactly, but it does give me something to smile about today.
