This is awesome! it's actually more or less exactly the kind of example I was looking for for a presentation I have to give next week on fan-produced transmedia content. So cool! Thanks!

Mr. Blatcher lost a lot of friends in Serenity Valley, Artw. It takes a long time for an interplanetary system to heal after a civil war and some folk take it mighty personal.

Somehow we always seem to end up on an alliance website on Uni day.

Oh yay, fanfiction in comic form! I get to object to the writing AND the art.

So -- who's got some Joss Whedon gossip? What's he's doing next?
I know Dollhouse was a trainwreck, but it had this potential (interesting ideas, really good supporting actors, maybe three or four amazing episodes) that was ultimately maddening because it was so wasted. And people complain about the last half season of Battlestar Galactica.

Incidentally I recently realized that young Simon is played by Zac Efron. So, yeah.

God damn. First Jayne is a teabagger, now I've learned this. It has been a week.

I too hate it when people use love of a series/movie/book/comic/game/art as inspiration to try create more art. It's galling.

The whatever Baldwin who played Jayne was also the sort of ultimate evil the last season of Angel too, so yeah, Teapartier.

Although it still makes me sad that Buffy was a McCain supporter, even though I've known this for some time now.

He's possibly probably directing the Avengers movie.

No, really. What Stan Lee thinks. What Samuel L. thinks.

Normally, I disagree wholeheartedly when good shows are cancelled by dumb programming executives. Joss Whedon is proof (over and over) that programming executives aren't wrong all the time. And yet, he gets more money.

TL;DR: What he said. Let it die already.

You know, those of us that enjoy his work do actually enjoy it, and aren't just trying to piss you off.

One of the table centerpieces at my wedding.

The groom's cake.

We met through Firefly fandom so it was only appropriate.

Haters can keep on hatin' but I don't care.

And you know, you can be an active fan of something that you know isn't going to continue. I hold no illusions that there'll be a miraculous resurrection of the franchise. But what's wrong with continuing to love what's there? Do people tell, say, fans of Hitchcock to "move on" because there definitely aren't going to be any more Hitchcock movies? (Modulo zombies.)

Is there Hitchcock slash fiction?
posted by ODiV at 10:53 PM on April 23, 2010


I would be shocked if there weren't.

Well, there is Hitchcock fan fiction. I don't see slashfic in there, though.

Serenity was the last movie I cried during. So there's that.

This one's pretty good, both story and art wise.

And moving on? Psh. I'll be sitting over here with the My So-Called Life box set and the Middleman 13th episode comic.

Don't ordinarily cotton to fannish sorts of things, and was a wee skeptical about such a mixup of Gunsmoke and Star Trek. But, kinda took a likin to it after a while. Got that whole whole drama thing goin, and enough laughs for a chee-schwah-dawng-foo full of monkeys.

So, to the hostile out there I say, whoa. Space is a big place. Now, let's find some jobs and cut out the jawin.

Weird, I literally just rewatched Serenity (I needed my Jayne fix after watching Adam Baldwin in Chuck...). Not a great film, but such a good show. It's the characters (and actor performances) that live beyond the constraints of the show and why we won't 'let it die'. The same goes for any show with a 'cult following'. I have trouble remembering what happens in Twin Peaks, but remember the characters with great fondness. I'm still not quite sure what happened at the end of X-Files, but I do still miss Mulder and Scully.

Also, I'm still holding out hope for a film starring Agent Cooper...

Serenity brought me knowledge of Nathan Dillon, and I thought it a fine film. Would like Summer Glau to do more kick ass shit, too.
