I am a horrible person.

A while ago I joined the Big Damn Knitters group on Ravelry. Because, you know, I like Firefly. I don’t really participate in the group discussions, but occasionally I read them. Mostly I just ignore the group, though.

Every time I am on the main forums page and I scroll past the BDK group, I see the subject line of what seems to be a fairly active post: “Could Firefly come back?” And I absolutely cannot click on it because I know that if I did it would be for the sole purpose of replying, “No.” As it is, I have a tendancy to yell, “Nope!” every time I see it.

See? Horrible person.

    This strikes me as your being realistic rather than horrible.

    Are people still telling themselves that fairy tale? Uuugh.

    You’re a damn sight nicer than I’d be.

    I don’t feel like anyone has to move on from the mythology, from the story as it stands, and from the value that provides. But we all SURE need to move on from the idea of the story as an ongoing thing. There are other really awesome stories that are still alive, some even struggling for life, some even made by the same folks! Why don’t we all try to love them?

    I feel so violently ambivalent about fandom sometimes…

    I must be a horrible person because I would do the exact same thing.

    I think that’s completely normal. Of course, this may say more about me than it does about your dilemma.

    You may have a case for being horrible if you did it. Only thinking it is merely entertaining.
