I do like to credit people who make with the Cool Icons.
Who made the karaoke one pictured here? I've seen it all over, but have so far been unable to trace it to it's original source.
my name is victoria, & i'm not only new to this community, but fairly (a couple months) new to firefly as well. i've been watching this community for a couple weeks & wanted to join the fun! ; D
i wanted to put something else out there, though. i'm in a folklore class this semester at the university of missouri - columbia that is entitled artistic communication in fan communities & in addition to being a firefly fan & wanting to join the group for that reason, i was wondering if it would be okay with you guys to use this community as one of many to help me better understand firefly fans, in an anthropological sense. i have no malicious intent & if any of you are uncomfortable with being quoted (with permission) i will surely omit certain people from my fieldwork or if enough people feel uncomfortable i will not use the community at all. even if that's the case, though, i would like to stay here as a lj firefly fan.
i would appreciate comments with your guy's opinions, & if it does turn out you guys as a whole are uncomfortable with the idea i'll surely not do it - i just wanted to let you all know about it so people don't feel like i have ill intentions, or the like.
i'm glad to be here, though, & look forward to more time with you fellow browncoats! : )
heya, just joined the community a few moments ago, and felt the need for that 'hi, i'm new here, just wanted to flail my arms around a bit in introduction' post.
i joined because i'm on my way to becoming a truly rabid fangirl over the series Firefly. Since i first saw the series two weekends ago, the show has completely stolen my brain. honest to god, i've watched the damn thing 4 times since i bought it.
back to the point, i joined the community because very few people i know, know about Firefly, and with my rapid descent (or ascention, depending on how generous you are) into obsessive fangirlyness, i feel the need to talk to people who love the show as much as i do.
so hey, i'm new. and i have a question:
if any of you read the fanfiction for the series, can you please explain something to me? it's been puzzling me like crazy since i first realized how popular the pairing was, but:
WHY do people pair jayne/river together?
i've been reading the fics, and i've been watching the series, and i can't for the life of me understand that pairing. i get the whole 'big strong man liketh small and delicate-yet-deadly female', but come on. as loveable as jayne is, he's also a gun-totin' brute. -_- i just don't get it.
I just discovered that a friend of mine is quite fond of my lj icon of Wash playing with his dinosaurs and as I am similarly fond of her, I'd like to surprise her with a wallpaper for her desktop but I am ... somewhat lacking in the ability to actually create one myself. Could someone with the requisite screen cap and photoshop skill create a 1024x768 and/or 1152x864 wallpaper of that scene for me? Or, failing that, link me to an already existing version?
Doh je sin.
