favorite mass effect relationships » Shepard & Anderson friendship"There’s been a lot written about the Commander, but most if it isn’t true. People are quick to judge. They don’t know the whole story. I don’t even know the whole story. But I know the woman. Worked with her, fought with her. Trust her with my life. Shepard’s had some rough patches. Who of us hasn’t. She’s been forced to fight a lot of battles alone. God only knows how she got out of some of that. Makes your head spin. Thing is, you never heard a complaint. Never once got, ‘No, sir. I can’t do that.’ She never hesitated. Few people know what Shepard’s been through. I’d like to think I come pretty close. And I worry sometimes she forgets: there’s a whole bunch of people who lose sleep over her getting back home. Maybe it doesn’t need to be said. Maybe we’re too dumb to say it. Soldiers like the Commander are rare. Women like Shepard…even more rare."
On a Friday afternoon, after rejecting Firefly's original pilot “Serenity”, Fox executives instructed series creator Joss Whedon to submit a new pilot script on Monday morning or the show would not be picked up. Whedon and his co-executive producer Tim Minear locked themselves away for the weekend to write this script, adding “larger than life” supporting characters and making the episode more action-centric to please the network. This new pilot, directed by Whedon, later became the series' second episode. Firefly premiered with “The Train Job” on Fox on September 20, 2002, twelve years ago today.

Happy National Voter Registration Day, Tumblr.
The number one way of celebrating it? Registering to vote.
Every year, millions of eligible Americans neglect to register, which means that millions of important voices are utterly silent on Election Day. Don’t be one of them. There’s basically a 100% chance that something you care about is on the ballot, something you don’t want to be quiet about.
So be one of the loud ones. Register already. It’s an easy form that you already know all the answers to. No excuses.
I forget how gay I am till I’m around a bunch of straight people.
