Challenge 3
Do you believe in true love? Have you ever felt it?

Believe in it? I lived it. Can’t say for sure I’d still be standing here if it weren’t for it.

I think all love is true, really. Love isn’t false, it’s only people that are. That’s not to say it doesn’t hurt, or there ain’t pain. Love’s the biggest kind of hurt there is. Without love there’s no loss, and we’ve known a lot of loss. Means we’ve known plenty of love, too.

It’s hard, loving and losing. Don’t think there’s anything harder. But that’s part of what makes it all worthwhile, worth fighting for.

Never regretted loving and I ain’t about to start now.

Title: Always Had Faith

Challenge 2
Do you have faith in a higher power that guides your life? Fate, Karma, God, anything?

Faith in a higher power? That was always Mal's thing, the Captain, back in the war.

Back before the surrender.

That day broke him. But before then, oh yeah, he was full of holy piss and vinegar. Kept us going through the worst of it, his faith that we would win, that our cause was just and God would see to it. Almost made you believe too, he was so fervent about it.

Never did put too much stock in the higher powers myself though. Just didn't seem likely, in the face of it all. Mal though; always had faith in the Captain.

Title: Surviving
Written for Round 4 Challenge 1 of [ profile] big_damn_quests as Zoe
Word Count: 202

Challenge 1
How did you survive the toughest battle of your life?

It was Wash.

And it wasn't a gun fight, or any battle in the war, though some of those were damn tough.

Toughest battle I ever survived was learning to put it behind me, and to love again. Healin'. That's what he gave me, a chance to heal, to learn that there was still life worth livin', and that it could be damn fine too, despite all the horror that had come before - maybe even because of it.

Wash let me climb back out of the darkness into the light, let me see that love still existed and that I could still feel it, that I could still have it. Let me find me again.

Wasn't easy. Some are still caught in that place, still lost from themselves, living in the dark, doing penance. Wash gave me a chance at forgiveness, for myself and for the rest of the 'verse too.

Gave me the best damn years of my life.

Second toughest battle was leaving him in that chair. But he'd taught me what I needed to survive, and I have. And now, cause of him, there's someone new to love and learn with.

And I wouldn't trade that love for nothin'.

Rating: PG-13
Pairing/Characters: Mal/Inara
Summary/Spoilers: Set between Heart of Gold and Objects in Space. OC Character death.
Author's Notes: Well, it has been a long time! I think this mostly came about as a sort of catharsis piece after my grandfather passed away last month. That brought out a lot of emotions, and this kind of explored some of them a bit and turned into a quiet little fic. It just kinda...starts ;) Thanks go to my three wonderful Hearts of Gold, for reading and encouraging me throughout the writing of this: [ profile] gilliebeans, [ profile] terimaru, and [ profile] charlie_bz, you ladies are da best!

I've always thought that this song was particularly well matched to Mal, and if I were one of those people who put together fan vids to music, I would totally do a Mal/Inara video for this song. I saw that someone made one with Serenity scenes, but I didn't care for it. Very few of the scenes they chose actually worked with the lines in the song, IMO. Too bad, 'cause I'd like to see a nice shippy video set to it.  ETA: What am I saying? More like, nice *angsty* shippy video set to it ;) Maybe I'll have to write an *angsty* shippy fic based on it sometime instead.

Click the title to open the song in Spotify and have a listen.

For those of you who balked at the $50 price tag for the Giant Serenity Wall Decal from QMX, Think Geek has them on sale right now for $9.99!

I ordered two, and with shipping, it's still less than the regular price for one! :)

Thanks to the fact that they extended the window for submissions, I was able to complete and submit an entry for the 2011 Can't Stop the Serenity art contest this year!

I think the design's pretty good; I'm pleased with how it turned out, so with luck, you might see my design on all the 2011 CSTS merchandise and promo stuff this year :o)

After many, many hours toiling over making new vectors, importing into Illustrator, exporting to Photoshop and then into Image Ready, I've completed the new banner for the Toronto 2010 Can't Stop the Serenity charity screening, yay!

I think it turned out pretty decent this year:

Also, Long time no update!!! I'll try to remedy that soon. :o)

I'm making a holster for my Mal Pistol.
I've spent some time examining pictures of the holster, and also some of the reproductions I've seen out there, and made a pattern that I hope will work. I've never made a holster before, and I don't look forward to the stitching part *G* but I've been working on a gun belt (not patterend after Mal's, one of my own weird design, based on some western gunbelts and what I had on hand) so I'd like to be able to strap the ol' iron on too ;o)

I'll let you know how it turns out :oD

This morning when I arrived at work, I discovered to my great dismay that my Serenity button is missing from the collar of my leather jacket!!

I don't know if I lost it at the bar on saturday, or if it's (hopefully) somewhere at home. I checked the car, but it doesn't appear to be in there either.

It was my only official Serenity button! *wails*

Dear button, please find me soon! *wibbles*
