The 2013 Auction has Begun

Our Global Auction for Equality Now have begun! This is your chance to get your hands on some amazing Whedonverse collectables and more, while helping a wonderful cause.

Go here -> http://bit.ly/TxTYEj

How about a silver Jewellry box which Gina Torres gave to the cast & crew during the filming of Firefly?

Or a Fanny pack which Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan gave to the Buffy crew at Christmas, 1998.
These are both incredibly rare.

The Avengers make their appearance with 2 full sized, double sided Movie posters along with a hard to find Dollhouse poster. You might also be interested in some of the official Avengers swag.

Maybe you are more into nifty crafts. Then you'll love our Big Damn Heroes created as knit dolls.

Whedon favorite Fabio Moon drew Sugar Shock and this year took on the world of Serenity, drawing the Dark Horse Free Comic Day Serenity. He generously created a sketch of Mal just for the auction.

There are also auction items from many SF fandoms including Sanctuary, Stargate, Star Trek,Farscape, Xena and others.

Oh, did we mention the signed shooting scripts for Shindig, donated by the writer of that episode, Jane Espenson? There are 2 of them. Yes! Two!

Now go bid!. The auction is over Saturday Nov. 10th.

A Word from our Sponsors: Why We Support CSTS

This is the first in a series from our sponsors. We asked them why, year after year, they support Can't Stop the Serenity & Equality Now. First up, one of our Lifetime Sponsors, Andy Gore, CEO of Quantum Mechanix: "We all got on this boat for the same reason: To make awesome stuff for the greatest TV show ever and to serve the community of Browncoats (to which we belong). Some folks said we were crazy to put all that love into a show that only lived half a season. But we didn't listen, because miracles happen only when you push ahead against the odds. And maybe only when you're crazy. But gorammit, if it didn't work. So here we are, seven years later, still honoring Firefly the best way we can and loving every minute of it. Supporting CSTS is another way we serve the Browncoat community. It's important. It's a cause we believe in. And it's one we're proud to help." Thanks QMx for continuing to support Can't Stop the Serenity.

First memories of Firefly – Part II

Here are a couple more of the entries we had when we ran a contest in March. We asked people what their first memory of Firefly was.

If you want to be technical, It was a Saturday morning, a long time ago. I was watching cartoons, and an ad came on. There was a girl, fighting, guns. Serenity, the movie was called. I thought that was weird. Then my show came back on, and I forgot all about it.

It was years later that I first heard of Firefly, sitting in a religion class, before school started. A classmate quoted something, and the teacher laughed. The classmate, a boy named Kory, was knitting something, a hat. Red and gold, orange. My teacher called it a "Jane" hat, whatever that was. I was confused. They said, "Watch Firefly." But I didn't.

The next year in my math class, a girl saw my ring, the one that said "Serenity". "Like Firefly?" she asked. "I'm Ceilidh!" (pronounced Kay-lee) I was confused. She told me to watch Firefly. But I didn't.

The next year, my friend Jenna told a story about a dream she'd had. It was about cowboys in space, and someone named Mal, but Jenna was sad because someone else- Nara? wasn't there, so there was no cute UST. Whatever that was. I was confused. She told me to watch Firefly. But I didn't.

That summer, my cousin, my older, crazy-awesome fantasy loving cousin was talking. She quoted something. I knew the quote. Said it back to her. "Firefly?" she asked. "Uh, sort of. I haven't.." but she cut me off. "You haven't seen it? No. I'm sorry. We can't be related until you watch this." She handed me the box set. "Well," I thought, "I might as well. I guess I should. Mike likes it. And Bishop and Ceilidh and Jenna. And I don't want Katy to shun me. Looks fun. Might as well. At least I'll know what all the fuss is about".

I got home. Put in the first disk. Forgot Breakfast. Next disk.Forgot Lunch. Next disk. Sitting on the red couch, mouth open, I loved it. How had I waited so long? Why had I waited so long? I had to keep watching. So I did.

My brother came over for a visit one day and told me about this amazing television show called 'Firefly' that he had on DVD. He had said the same thing about many shows in the past, none of which had really captured me, but I decided to humor him and give this most recent show of his a chance. I was even more skeptical of this show after he told me that he wasn't going to show me the pilot episode first, but instead he wanted to show me the one that was aired first. Nonetheless, I watched Captain Reynolds and his crew in 'The Train Job' and after the episode was over I could only say one thing to my brother: "More."
What was your first memory of Firefly?
