» feminist [the word] includes the idea that believing men and women to be equal, believing all people to be people is not a natural state – that we don’t emerge, assuming that everybody in the human race is a human, that the idea of equality is just an idea that’s imposed on us, that we are indoctrinated with, that it’s an agenda.

Still Flying

Since becoming a freelance artist, I’ve found I identify with Malcolm Reynolds more and more. Take days like today - it wasn’t perfect, I could have earned more. But I’m still flying, and for now, that’s enough.

Buffy the Vampire slayer is so important. It’s showed countless girls (and boys) that everyone has potential, that anyone can be a hero, and that being a hero is not just about being strong - it’s about being vulnerable, and flawed, and human. It showed us that you’re never really done growing up. and that’s ok, because life is messy and complicated and the future rarely happens the way you think it will. It taught us that friendship is important, but so is self reliance, because when everything else gets stripped away you have to be ok with the person that’s left. It’s taught us that all forms of love are valid, it’s taught us that people can change, and (perhaps most importantly), it’s taught us the value of a well-timed pun. So let’s just all take a moment, 18 years after the day Buffy first premiered, to just be thankful for what this show has done for us.

In the Firefly episode “Out of Gas” (1x05) Wash wires up a large, red button for the captain to press if he needs the crew to return to the ship. When he shows it to Mal he says, “When your miracle gets here, just hit this button.” When Alan left the Firefly(2002) set after the series was canceled, he took that button as a keepsake. When Joss Whedon announced that he would be searching for a way to bring the show back as either a series or a feature film, Alan sent him the button with a note that said, again, “When your miracle gets here, just hit this button.”.
