Firefly 1.02-- "I don't wish to alarm anyone..." (+BSG)  
It's pretty much been parade of slow, lazy summer days this past week. I did my last tutoring session with the Takamotos-- we pretty much did a little review and played games, and the kids hugged me goodbye, which was sweet. I'm still incredibly frustrated with my muse, who won't let me write despite the fact she's brought me several bunnies, including a BtVS/Firefly crossover with Spander. X_x

Grandparents' anniversary is on the 3rd, so we'll probably be driving up on Monday. I'm looking forward to seeing them, actually, but not to seeing my extended family. Pooh. My *cough cough* 29th*cough, cough, wink, cough* will be on the 8th... summer break is half over. Where did it go?

I don't know. But one thing I do know is this: I <3 Wash.


Firefly 1.02: 'I don't want to alarm anyone, but I think we're being followed."
+Wash is adorable. Not as adorable as Xander, but still very attractive in the 'ohh! look at the fluffy puppy in the box!' sort of way. I loved his lines when they were being chased by the Rapers, and I *loved* the look on his face when Zoe bluntly told Mal they were off to have sex. Zoe is kind of like a cross between the best parts of Anya and Faith. Tough chick, that, and I think the only thing her wedding vows come second to is covering Malcolm's back. X_x;;;
+That whole "Kaylee is dead?" thing? That was MEAN. Mal had me worried!
+Still not seeing much of River, but I like what I have seen. Both Kaylee and Inara have been really sweet to her.
+Speaking of Kaylee and Inara? 'She's very dear to us'-- I think Leigh's assertion that I must write Kaylee/Inara might just come to pass. ^^
+Did not like the whole vibe between Malcolm and Inara. Just creeped me out, for some reason.
+*darth vader voice* Shepherd Book is far too trusting.*/darth vader voice*
+I don't like Jayne. I just don't. Am lukewarm on Simon. Am disturbed by the fact that the majority of Firefly slash I've found has BEEN Jayne/Simon.
+One thing I do like about Simon is his protectiveness of his sister. So cute.
+Malcolm is a disappointed, bitter idealist. Just an observation.
+Doesn't the Serenity trailer look awesome?



This Week's Battlestar
+I am slightly torn on this show-- on one hand, I hate the idea of the military taking the power out of the hands of the people. On the other, I dislike Rosalind being both a political and religious leader. She can be one, or the other, but not both.
+Adama needs to get his ass in gear before Tigh screws the whole fleet over. Also, Tigh, sweetie-- staring at photos of your CO whilst drinking is not at all subtle. Leigh! Save me from the creepyoldmen!slash.
+Ellen Tigh is an absolute bitch. I hope she's a Cylon.
+Wow, Number Six actually wore clothing for the funeral of the fallen soldiers. I'm all shocked and amazed, here.
+I really, really like Kali. Also the Chief. Not as a couple, just as two really neat characters.
+Billy is such a good guy.... I feel kinda sorry for him.
+I'm going through Sharon withdrawal! *pounds on table* Sharon! Sharon! Sharon!


I've totally lost all interest in SG-1. I only watched this episode for the Jack and Daniel interaction, but really, the show has been going downhill since late season four. Now it just... sucks. It's depressing, how the close friendship between Jack and Daniel has been destroyed, and how Sammy-kins character has been dragged through the mud. *le sigh*

I am not big on slash because it's usually uncanonical, but Kaylee/Inara I could easily see.

Simon/Jayne is just bizarre, as the two dislike each other. But Simon grows on you (he certainly grew on me).

I am a huge Mal/Inara shipper, because I am a sucker for dysfunctional love stuff. But yeah, it's not a super-healthy situation.

Re: BSG

Yeah, I adore the Chief as well. He is warm AND capable.

Joss is great about having actually workable slash subtext in his shows: Spike/Angelus, Willow/Tara, Kaylee/Inara... Too bad my Buffy OTP is Spike/Xander. Wildly uncanon, but so RIGHT!

I guess I should warn you that my only real het pairing is Padme/Vader. Most everything else on this journal is m/m or f/f. *yoda voice* Once you start down the path of slash, forever will it dominate your destiny.

Simon/Jayne is just bizarre, as the two dislike each other. But Simon grows on you (he certainly grew on me).
I think it's that 'thin line between love and hate' thing. Still, I don't want to imagine Jayne having sex with ANYONE. *shudder*

I love the Chief. Poor dear hasn't even been told about Cylon!Sharon yet!

Oh, I know that about your lj, and it's peachy with me. My objections to most slash have nothing to do with it being same gender, but to it being uncanonical, and that's true for most pairings in any fanfic, anyway.

I hope I didn't sound condescending or anything when I said that. I'm glad you already know, though. ^__^

Sometimes fanfic is so far from canon it makes your head spin, ne?

You're not the only one! I've only seen two, and I'm hooked. ^__^

FIREFLY!
I just finished watching the series after three years of people telling me I should see it.

I don't like Jayne. I just don't. Am lukewarm on Simon. Am disturbed by the fact that the majority of Firefly slash I've found has BEEN Jayne/Simon.
*blink*
Okay. Weird. I've declared Simon to be my outer space boyfriend since Wash is married and Zoe would kill me and I grew fond of Jayne because he made me laugh, but that pairing? That doesn't work.

Doesn't the Serenity trailer look awesome?
I just saw the new one, which has more non-River scenes, and so SHINY! Is it September 30th yet?

Re: FIREFLY!
*grabs Aby and clings* There you are! I've missed you, dear.

You've seen the whole series? *is jealous* I can't find any place to rent the DVDs from, so I'm stuck waiting for Sci Fi to air each ep. ;_; Poor me.

I've declared Simon to be my outer space boyfriend since Wash is married and Zoe would kill me and I grew fond of Jayne because he made me laugh, but that pairing? That doesn't work.
No, it does not. "Outer space boyfriend"? *giggles madly* I love it! Wash is, indeed, awesome and most throughly already taken. I love the scene with him and his dinosaurs. ^^

Is it September 30th yet?
I know! That's the only reason I'm looking forward to the end of September, as classes start on the 21st, and all. I think this is gonna be an awesome film.

Re: FIREFLY!
There you are! I've missed you, dear.
Yeah. As indicated by all the crying Ryan's in Leigh's journal I've been gone a lot...

Seen the whole thing. I had friends in college who were obsessed but I never watched it. Then hiyacynth showed me the pilot when I visited her in March and this May I rented the first disc (online rental things have em) and got hooked and just gave in and bought the set, since it was on sale at Amazon. I just finished a week ago and SO GOOD.

"Outer space boyfriend"? *giggles madly* I love it! Wash is, indeed, awesome and most throughly already taken. I love the scene with him and his dinosaurs. ^^

Definitely my outer space boyfriend.
Dinosaurs! Best character introduction ever, ever, ever. I also love that the rest of the series you see the dinosuars sitting on his console just waiting for playtime.

I know! That's the only reason I'm looking forward to the end of September, as classes start on the 21st, and all. I think this is gonna be an awesome film.

Yep. I think anticipating that film will keep me going the next too months. Have you seen the new trailer they just released? I linked it in my most recent entry...

I love that just as I finished watching it half my flist erupted in Firefly love.

Since you love Kaylee/Inara, there's a small scene in the next episode, "The Train Job," that I think you'll love. And if while you're watching the next episode you feel as though you just took a step backwards, meaning it feels like you're getting introduced to the characters and the 'verse all over again, well... you are. FOX wanted a faster, quicker, sexier start to a show, so instead of using the very appropriate two hour dramatic premiere, "The Train Job" was used as it's premiere. Ironically, "Serenity, pt. 1 and 2" were the last episodes aired before FOX pulled the show.

Once again, I am a wealth of Firefly information. Haha. I love this show. :-D
