My name is Emily and I’ve nearly finished a Bachelor of Media Studies at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. This semester, I have to study a media audience. The audience I’ve chosen for my project is the online Firefly fandom. I need opinions and personal experiences from real fans about fan campaigns, pairings, favourite characters and episodes, trolling, merchandise and more. Since this is the biggest Firefly community on LiveJournal, this was my first stop. I'm here to ask you to participate in a survey about your experiences as a member of online Firefly fandom, so that I can use your replies as part of my project.
I need between fifteen and twenty people to respond to the survey, so if you would like to respond, or know someone who would like to, the survey is under the cut. If people post comments, remember that other people's responses may include spoilers for Firefly or Serenity.
If you have any questions or would like to submit your answers via e-mail, mine is look.at.the.pretties @ gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you! :)

ETA: Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you! You guys are fantastic. You gave me so much material to work with. From this point, I will be using the twenty-seven comments I got here, plus the three e-mails I received, to write the survey portion of my audience analysis. Thank you! *beams*
