[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.
[two gifs of characters from Firefly. The top one shows Kaylee looking up at Inara and saying “Hey you.” in greeting. The bottom shows Inara greeting Kaylee the same way. Both have adorable smiles.]
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.
