#so i was listening to michael buble’s christmas album while making this gifset (shut up it’s not too early for christmas music at all) #and suddenly all i wanted was a christmas episode of firefly we never got to see #the crew’s planetside and they are about to take off when jayne shows up dragging a huge christmas tree #and kaylee lets out an excited squeal and everyone’s faces instantly light up #is it possible they’ll actually have a proper christmas tree this year will mal protest maybe they can even have christmas dinner #and no one can see it (though river knows) but mal nods at jayne slightly as if saying ‘you picked a good one’ and jayne winks at mal #later on kaylee and river are laughing and pretending to fight over who’s gonna put their shiny handmade gold star on the top #and kaylee smiles and gives it to river and simon picks his sister up so she can reach the top #and as they don’t have many things to decorate the tree with wash comes in carrying his dinosaurs and puts them on the tree #and shepherd lets river tear up one of his books to make confetti to cover the tree with #meanwhile inara and zoe are trying to cook something more festive and jayne keeps trying to stick his fingers in the meal #and once it’s finished it’s not really that different than their usual food #but the crew’s unexpected christmas spirit has made it ten times tastier #and no one says it but it’s the best christmas any one of them has ever had #i apologize i accidentally serenity crew holiday feelings
Summer Glau, Alan Tudyk and Seah Maher on the future of their respective Firefly characters
Jayne would originally be really grouchy about the kids screaming at night when they’re teething and would try to avoid them and not let anyone see he spoils them rotten. And Kaylee and Simon would have a little girl who doesn’t like engines or medicine but she has Jayne absolutely wrapped around her little fiinger after he catches her disassembling one of his pistols at age five. And he takes her under his wing and teaches her all about guns and calls her his Little V (short for Little Vera) and the nickname eventually spreads to the rest of the crew.

The things you find reading someone’s IMDB page:
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.”.
For all its snappy one-liners and rousing chases through deep space, Firefly is most beautiful—and most effective—in its simplicity. The show envisions the depths of outer space and humankind’s very future into the classic setting of for any Western, and does it so with the utmost elegance. Firefly’s space is the space of an untamed frontier, shattered by outlaws, vigilantes and lawmen. It’s a rough and tumble place, a future made primitive, where the progress of mankind means trudging through plenty of cow flops, and making victims out of whole societies of innocent people. It’s the American Old West writ large, and there’s perhaps no surprise in the fact that every planet that the motley crew of the Serenity touches down upon looks like it could have been pulled from Monument Valley or the scrub plains of Oklahoma. - Ian Chant

You know, with the exception of one deadly and unpredictable midget, this girl is the smallest cargo I’ve ever had to transport. Yet by far the most troublesome. Does that seem right to you?
