[gifset from Firefly. Wash and Kaylee are talking.
Kaylee: Wash, tell me I’m pretty.
Wash: Were I unwed, I would take you in a manly fashion.
Kaylee: ‘Cause I’m pretty?
Wash: ‘Cause you’re pretty.]
I should have this on my blog for reference purposes.
Firefly is getting a shiny new TV special.
To celebrate the cult-favorite sci-fi drama’s 10th anniversary, Science Channel is shooting a new one-hour special chronicling the Firefly cast reunion at Comic-Con this week.
The special — titled Browncoats Unite — will include footage from Friday’s reunion panel, featuring several members of the original team including star Nathan Fillion and creator Joss Whedon. Plus, the cast is shooting an in-depth behind-the-scenes roundtable interview that will dive deeper into burning fan questions about the beloved series. Both the panel and the roundtable will be moderated by Entertainment Weekly‘s own Jeff Jensen.

So, I was watching Firefly today, and it occurred to me that part of the reason I ship these two so hard is that they are Aphrodite and Hephaestus. I love when my ships mirror my mythological ships.
