On Saturday night Mr. Sus and I watched Serenity for the first time since we saw it in the theater last year. Yes, I've owned the DVD since Christmas and didn't even crack the plastic wrap until this weekend. You know why? Because Joss Whedon is an evil bastard. God, I love him. It's taken exactly this long for us to get over the extreme emotional distress inflicted by that fantastic freaking movie so that we could face the prospect of watching it again. It's still the best movie I've seen since Return of the King. And it still breaks my heart into a thousand tiny little pieces.

Part of the reason we finally sucked it up and watched the damn thing again is that I've been working on my Mal/Inara fic. I've decided to do something a little bit different and maybe kinda dumb. Instead of just writing a simple, 1000-word shipper fic like I'm supposed to, I'm writing an entire episode. Four acts, a teaser, A, B and C storylines and everything. Yeah, I don't know what's wrong with me, either.

I guess I've been reading too much of Jane Espenson's blog lately and it's been making me miss writing spec scripts and I decided I wanted to write one for Firefly. Only I figure the ficathon readers aren't really looking to read a script, so I'm writing it as a narrative and then I'll maybe go back later and adapt it into a script if I like the way it turns out. Don't worry, though, it'll be a Mal/Inara heavy episode--something along the lines of "Shindig" in terms of their interactions with one another. But I just couldn't bring myself to write in the Firefly 'verse without doing an ensemble piece because I love that ensemble like woah.

haha! You and Mr. Sus are cute. :)

And B too! He hooked up surround sound to our tv this weekend and the first thing he said? "We should watch your Firefly movie again. To test out the sound." Yeah, like you know he wasn't just dying to watch it again and was using the sound as an excuse.

*squee!* That sounds so great! :D Can't wait to read.

Going back to the DVDs again is so wonderful and yet so evil. We watched "Out of Gas" on the weekend and then I found myself wondering if there was any Simon/Inara fic out there.

Or, this could be her crack dealing, I'm not sure...

You know its your fault that Mark and I got hooked on Firefly this winter. You had talked it up so much. I must admit I liked the TV show better than the movie- mostly because the movie had so much in it. Too bad it is unlikely there will ever be more. (That's right isn't it?)

Hahaha! I am such a crack dealer!

It's hard to say whether they'll be more or not. Right now, it seems unlikely that there'll be a sequel, given that it didn't make much money at the box office (thanks for totally failing to promote it outside of the fan-driven, grassroots internet campaign, Universal). But I think it's pretty dear to Joss' heart and to the hearts of all the cast, so it's not out the question that they'll come back to it one day. Certainly there's a good chance for comic book continuations (which are a good thing when Joss writes them himself, not so good when he farms them out).

Who knows, if Wonder Woman is a huge smash and Joss has cache to burn he may just strong-arm the studio into financing a sequel.
