browncoats will someday rule the world!

I've been a browncoat for about 3 years now, and I certainly haven't been silent about it, at least not with my family. They're fully aware of my obsessions; my mother read my first slash fic, as a matter of fact. My parents are old school Star Trek geeks, so they get it. But nobody has been all that interested, which is fine.

But today, out of the blue, my sister (NOT a geek) emails me. She just bought the Firefly dvd's on a whim and has watched all the way through to Ariel so far. She goes on and on about how wonderfully heroic (and gorgeous) Mal is, and how she got teary at the end of Ariel when Jayne's in the airlock yelling, "Don't tell 'em what I did!" (I warned her that she was gonna bawl during War Stories, but I refused to tell her why. *snickers*) She kept asking, "Why didn't I ever watch this before? Especially when I'm such a huge fan of Buffy?" and, "Why did they cancel this show? It's so great!"

She says she's going with me to CSTS in Portland next year. We're taking over the world, one person at a time. Just thought I'd share. *g*
