support group for ppl who used to be the same age as their favourite character but then got older
Anyone else still feel like the characters are older than they are despite the fact we are way older now. I mean, I watched Buffy when I was 11, she was in her late teens and that seemed so grown up. Now I’m 26 but watching Buffy I still see her like the 11 year old me did. Its strange.

Simon’s face though. He got your point Kaylee, loud and clear.
Serenity vs Serenity
A ship with matching gunshot wounds. How can anyone resist. Both inadvertently caused by the other.
River is just being a little sister, its on the ramp when Kaylee is telling him not to talk to strangers and the like.
Kaylee was River’s closest friend besides Simon, and Kaylee and Simon were also in love with each other. The only reason they hadn’t done anything about it was because her brother was too stupid to live
River shot Simon a look. Her stupid brother managed to fit a lot of longing and pain into that one word.
I always found it quite funny that Serenity went backwards in their relationship and bits like this that would have gone forward were never really made clear. We knew they liked each other, they knew they liked each other but this is beyond that.
As for the first one:
Of course, there were other disreputable ships at Eavesdown—the challenge would’ve been to find a reputable one—but the young woman who was barking for Serenity was very pretty. Simon had to confess that he hadn’t expected to find anyone or anything pretty out here. Most people in the outer planets had elastic notions as to proper hygiene, and out here they didn’t really have access to cosmetic enhancements that were run of the mill back home.
But this young woman—whose name, he learned, was Kaylee—was quite pleasant to look at, even with the smudges on her face. Besides, she had a boundless enthusiasm that Simon—facing a life as a fugitive far away from everything he’d ever known—found comforting.
There is a reason the nice, pretty girl was there to lure in travellers!
Churches don’t pay tax because they spend more on charity and public services like schools then they would pay in tax anyway. I hate when people go for cheap shots without thinking it through. Gets to me. You make your point, don’t ruin it.
I’ve only just read the Serenity novelisation but I think its important because we find out 3 important Simon/Kaylee related things:
1. One of the main reasons Simon got on the Serenity was because he thought Kaylee was pretty.
2. Simon and Kaylee are in love with one another but Simon is too stupid to live- River’s Words
3. River wasn’t being a perv when she saw him and Kaylee getting it on, she and Simon were helping mend the ship at the time. They lost 2 days on repairs because Simon and Kaylee were getting frisky.

For international readers, the government here basically said that a £9000 per year deferred charge will make more people go to uni, especially poor people. Their grand idea is to send basically everyone, no matter how able they are, to uni to get the most money into the institutions because they don’t want to pay for them anymore, despite the fact they are the hotbeds of innovation that drive the economy. So not only are we putting youth in considerable debt, that youth is paying for not only their education but architecture projects, scientific research, archaeology projects (Richard III) etc that should all be government funded. Think back to uni, 30 people in a seminar, 100-200 in a lecture, library books, all at £9000 each? Uni does not cost that much. Also, by basically removing the ability threshold and making A-Levels like a grammar school test they keep lots of young people off the unemployment figures for 3-4 years.
