Just saw this link via Whedonesque: "I, Malcom."

So, what was it like to be Mal? I don't know. ... I guess, imagine wanting, all your life, to be able to fly. Daydreaming about it, fantasizing about it. Imagine that flying was all you ever wanted. Then, for a few months, somebody gave you wings.
... Ooo. That's good. I'm going to write that down.

How do I arrange it so that I get to sit down and have dinner with that man some day? Can we make that happen?

Steph! Right?? I started getting teary round about where he was talking about believing he *was* Mal. I love the idea of him walking around set during lunch, just sort of living in Mal's skin in his downtime. So much love for the Fillion!!

Okay, this may is pretty far-fetched, but follow my logic here. After Ewan and Charley got back from their Long Way Down trip (oh, sorry, did I just spoil the ending?), they held a gala to benefit Unicef, and, I'm sure, to promote their TV show - which had not yet started airing - and the book and album - which had already been released. Before said gala, tickets for the main table, where Ewan and Charley were to be seated, naturally, were auctioned off on eBay. My plan is quite simple: get Nathan to join Ewan and Charley on their Long Way Up trip (it would be on the same continent where he lives), wait for them to auction off a table at the gala which would no doubt follow that trip, bid, win and Bob's your uncle. That's not unnecessarily convoluted is it?

Hee!! Also, I think my brain short-circuited a little at the idea of Nathan, Ewan, and Charley road-tripping through the Americas together. That might almost be TOO MUCH awesome for one dinner table! ...How do you suppose we go about making this happen?

(Double hee. As I was typing this, a commercial for Waitress was followed by a spot for Desperate Housewives. My TV has a crush on the Fillion, too!)

Man, that show was the best, wasn't it? I miss it so much.

And yes, Nathan Fillion. Sad but true, I didn't really like Mal until the movie. Hindsight's 20/20, I guess.

I haven't done a Firefly rewatch in about 6 months, I'm thinking it's about that time again.

And that's funny. I fell in love with Mal almost immediately, but I was that way with Simon. It was at least the fourth or fifth rewatch before I started to love him, though now I can't really remember what my problem was. :p
