Firefly contribution - whole series [30 Sep 2005|08:49am]

In honor of it being Big Damn Movie Day, I put together

Firefly In Stick Figures!

Spoilers for the whole series (and none for the movie). :)

Thank you to everyone who contributed during the Summer of Serenity, and to everyone who commented on those contributions. You all made serenitysummer a great success! I had a lot of fun, you were all so well-behaved and easy to mod, and we got a ton of fantastic art and stories and vids out of our joy.

The community will be staying up, and I'll be adding the final contributions into the memories through the next week, so if you want to go back and find something, it'll be easy to do. Thanks again everyone!

Also, I'm doing a Super Serenity Challenge, where I reward you for seeing the movie. Go check it out. :)

BDM WEEK !!! [26 Sep 2005|12:00am]


Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Welcome to the BIG DAMN MOVIE week!

There will be both a spoiler-free discussion post this week and a spoiler-infested post. Please be mindful of which post you are reading the comments to, we do not want to hear people complaining later that we spoiled them.

The following things are acceptable to post this week:
- Fanart, fanvids, fanfic about the entire tv show and/or characters on the tv show.
- Fanart, fanvids, fanfic for all of those that missed their posting window because they were too damn busy. (like me)
- Your vision for the Serenity movie poster
- Fanart & fanfic for the movie (made from the trailers, promo pictures or the movie itself) BEHIND CLEAR SPOILER WARNINGS AND CUTS ONLY!
- Announcements movie-related Shindigs (Check the community to see if your city is already represented before posting)

What is not acceptable:
- Merchandise links and random one sentence "OMG I have 3 hours and 32 seconds until the movie! Who's not jealous?" posts. If you wish to pimp merchandise or a website/community then send me a link before Wednesday and it will be included in the BDM Week - Link Post.

Here's the second of the three "Objects in Space" pieces I'm submitting for your enjoyment -- and as a matter of fact, it was the first Firefly fanfic I wrote. Hopefully that doesn't show too obviously. :)

Title: Voices
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,019
A/N: This takes place during the final act of "War Stories" and the beginning of "Objects in Space".

( Noises, and the stink of chemical propellants, crowd the air. )

[ mood | contemplative ]

So I'm another person signed up to do River this week. Got a couple of things to post, but this is the first. My original intention was to make a video to this song (which I may well still do, time permitting!), but since I don't know if that'll happen, I want you guys to have the lyrics and hear the song anyway, since it screams "River!" to me :)

Week 12 Discussion Post - Objects in Space [18 Sep 2005|11:55pm]


Image hosted by Photobucket.com


Objects in Space
Written by: Joss Whedon
Directed by: Joss Whedon

The crew is caught off-guard when a bounty hunter, eager to claim the enormous reward on River's head, sneaks aboard Serenity and methodically begins taking the crew prisoner one by one.

Rules for the discussion posts:
1) NO FLAMMING! Flamming is a banning offense in this community.
2) NO SPOILERS FOR THE MOVIE there will be a movie discussion post next week!
3) NO SPOILERY MOVIE ICONS! Be nice and do not ruin any of the big surprises for those that have not gone to a screening.

Suggested Topics:
-- At the end of this episode do you feel that River is a psychic, a weapon, or just a child?

-- If River is indeed a weapon, and without the Blue Sun corporation she has no mission, essentially no purpose or meaning, is she now powerless? Or is she still dangerous?

-- How would you rate Jubel Early as a villian?

-- Was the existential argument and disjointed nature of River's P.O.V. too hard to follow, or totally cool?

-- Best and worst moments of this episode for you?

If you missed your posting window or would like to contribute but were not signed up when this community started, then you can post anytime next week (BDM week)

Heart of Gold fic [17 Sep 2005|11:24pm]

My humble offering for this touching episode:

Title: Sand and Sun
Author: outofthisworld
Rating: One swear word.
Disclaimer: If I were making money doing this, I wouldn't be here.

The whorehouse reflected everything with heightened intensity; the glint and the dusty grit got into every corner, every skin crease, every fingernail.Collapse )
