We Will Do the Impossible, and It Will Make Us Mighty

Here's how it is: The Earth got used up, so we moved out and terraformed a whole new galaxy of Earths. Some rich and flush with the new technologies, some not so much. The Central Planets, thems formed the Alliance, waged war to bring everyone under their rule; a few idiots tried to fight it, among them myself. I'm Malcolm Reynolds, captain of Serenity. She's a transport ship; Firefly class. Got a good crew: fighters, pilot, mechanic. We even picked up a preacher for some reason, and a bona fide companion. There's a doctor, too, took his genius sister outta some Alliance camp, so they're keepin' a low profile. You understand. You got a job, we can do it, don't much care what it is.

 

Right. Dunno iff'n y'all noticed, but a couple of the GLs had the idea that we should do a Firefly-themed challenge. And by had the idea, I mean that we laughed and thought and laughed, and now we're doing it.

 

Here's how this is gonna work. The Challenge goes like normally does, but we're gonna but a slight twist on it. You have a background theme to use if you want to. You can base it on a character, on an episode, on a planet, on the setting itself, whatever. It just has to tie back to Firefly somehow.

 

There is no limit on how many people can share a character or an episode or what have you. If anything, it'd actually be fascinating to see lots of different riffs on a theme.

 

If you're having some trouble figuring it out, I've thrown in a Character Quiz to give you some starting points.

 

So, there you have it, guys. Have fun!

 

(NOTE: Just so we're clear: you don't have to do this if you don't want to. We just thought it'd be fun to shake things up a little bit and play around some. But believe me, I know better than anyone: martial arts is srs bzns).

You’re a natural leader who toes the line between hero and villain. You’re the backbone of your close circle of friends, but those outside your inner circle fear you — and with good reason. You try to follow a strict moral code, but moral codes are no good to you if they mean you or one of your own gets hurt. You’re a fearsome enemy, have a natural protective instinct, and are the person people turn to when they need someone to get the job done.

 

Ayup.  Not terribly shocked about this.  Now... where did I put that pretty floral bonnet...

You’re a gentle soul who’s seen a lot in their day. You’re a quiet and nurturing person, but behind your academic facade, you’re a fighter. You’re fiercely protective of your loved ones, and while you’re not one to pick up a gun during a fight, you aren’t so strict with your beliefs that you won’t bend them in order to do what’s right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yup. That's me. Though, honestly, I'm kind of a Wash/Book hybrid... oh well. The die are cast.

I don't know about being brilliant but I would do anything for my family and friends.

You’re a brilliant and focused person who will do anything for your loved ones. All things academic come naturally to you, and you’re a pretty charmed person, but you’re also surprisingly worldly. You don’t trust or love many people, but the few in your inner circle know you’d go to the ends of the earth (and space) for them.

On the outside, you’re the clown of your group of loved ones, but you’re also the often unsung hero. You prefer staying on the fringes of the action, dutifully doing your part, but when it comes to protecting your loved ones, you can be cutthroat. You’re empathetic and intuitive, quick-witted, and intensely loyal.

Also dinosaurs.

I can live with this.

 

However, this messes up my planned 6WC:  TMNT part 3: Other Strangeness (various mutant animal themed goals).

One of my goals is discipline and that includes sticking to my plans and not abandoning them when something shiny appears!

So I'll be dipping my toe into the Firefly theme as a sidequest :)

I hope that's ok.

I'm terrible at self-assessment; so, I hate these tests. I took it a few time because there's always more than one answer that I want to pick and the vast majority came out Zoë. So I guess that makes my wife Wash; come to think of it, she's totally Wash.

Good test!  I came out as Mal, which I suppose is accurate.  I'd really prefer to get a friend to take it for me though. I find that I tend to subconsciously play these things towards the end I want.  

 

In any case, it's fun!

I always get Mal no matter how much I want to be Zoe

 

i think who you want to end up as counts for more than who the test gives you. i was hoping for kaylee, but im a lot more like zoe so im fine to roll with it for now. 

It's the moose on the inside that counts.

I almost wish I had chosen the monk...It was close. Even though I'm not in the guild, I will be following you closely. As I believe that BJJ fits closely with the monk mentality.

BTW I'm Wash.

I should download & watch the serie..

 

Yes.  Yes you should.

 

 

I always get Mal no matter how much I want to be Zoe... Or Wash so I could be married to Zoe and have dinosaurs..

^That

 

Really we guild Leaders thought it would just be fun (and by "We," I mostly mean Kishi and the Shogun because they had a late night conversation that I only got to read the following morning and instantly loved the idea).  No pressure to fit the theme at all.  We won't hate you, honest.  At least forever. :P

 

And for my character I am definitely a Mal-Wash hybrid.  Probably will get both sides in my challenge.  When I finally write it up.

Which is cool, because I've loved Gina's tight pants since she was in Cleopatra 2525 (anybody remember that?).   We've got the same birth year, so we're >likethis<, me and Gina are. 

 

ANYWAY.  I'm in.  I'm weak.  What can I say?

You just had to go and make a Firefly theme challenge... Like you knew that it is my favourite thing ever and used that to try and lure me back...  Like you knew that I've gotten my picture taken with Nathan Fillion and plan on doing the same again next month... Well played monks, well played.

 

PS.  I got Mal, and I aim to misbehave
