Charity Auction of Teddy Bears autographed by Firefly cast

Hi everyone!

Some of you mght know that I worked with a charity while living in Vancouver. One of the projects I started was "Bears that Care for BC Women's". And the cast of Firefly were fantastic in helping us out!

With the support of the Vancouver film industry, we are proud to bring you Bears that Care for BC Women's - the cutest fundraiser in town!</p>

Famous personalities from film and television have thrown their support behind BC Women's by autographing these cuddly little bears.
And they are just crying out for a new home - with you!

100% of the proceeds from the auctions of the Bears that Care for Women's will benefit the BC Women's Hospital and Health Centre (Charitable Registration No: 890267537RR0001)

BC Women’s Hospital & Health Centre is Canada’s busiest maternity hospital. Your assistance helps us care for the pregnant women who come here from across the province when they’re in danger, when something suddenly goes terribly wrong during their pregnancy. By helping us raise money in this project, you are also helping us provide the best possible care for more than 1,200 babies every year who fight for their lives in our Special Care Nursery. You are helping BC Women’s, a recognized world leader in women’s health, care for women at every stage in their lives.

Each week until the end of March, a new group of celebrity bears will be up for grabs.

Firefly Essay!

I got greenlit by a prof today to write an essay for my Gender and Sexuality class about Female Sexuality in Firefly/Serenity.

How cool is that! I already have four handwritten pages of notes just from Shindig. I am psyched. Especially about the inevitable Zoe, Kaylee and YoSafBridge parts, because they are the most interesting!

Anywho, I just thought you folks might get a kick out of a third year English honours student writing an academic essay on FF. Because I know I get a kick out of that.

PvP/Firefly Fanart

For those of you who read the online comic PvP (which I heartily recommend) then today I discovered posted on his page this little bit of fan art.

included was this dialogue

I discovered Claire Hummel’s work on the World of Warcraft site. She had done some fan art that just blew my mind. Claire has a fluid and carefree style yet every line lands exactly where it’s supposed to.

How can someone’s line work look so organic and natural and yet be so exact? I stand bewildered.

as much as I hate deviant art, it’s the best repository for more of Claire’s work. Marvel, DC, Disney… please take notice.

Claire was kind enough not to ignore me when I wrote begging for PvP fan art. I asked for anything starring Skull and Jade. I am more than pleased with the results.

Claire, Madame, thank you.
