    I was going to give a whole long explanation, but instead I'll just say: Because I love them, and because they deserve it.

    This song was the part inspiration/was listened to a lot when doing this.

      Hmmm... Ok I'll just buy one of hers when I'm there. I've got one for Paul and Robert. The Walgreens site says the Sparky pic might end up being a bad quality so I'm doing one of just Joe and just Torri in case that doesn't look good.

      I couldn't find a picture I really liked of Michael Shanks so I'll buy something there for him.
      OMG, I just saw that Joe and Torri are going to be signing autographs on Sat night AT THE SAME TIME. SO YOU WILL GET TO SEE THEM TOGETHER. Hopefully they are at the same table. And you won't have to wait until Sunday to see him. Don't get more nervous now.

      I got a really nice pic of MS there. He draws a little face. Tee hee.

      Erin, great work. You've been inspired.

        No, it wouldn't. I love Jewel to bits and have met her a few times now, and never had her sign a photo of her as Keller. I have one as Kaylee, one as Ellia, one of herself (though that was a birthday gift from friends signed by her) and then last time I had her sign my Firefly DVD-box set.

          Love that picture.

          Oh wow, that’s awesome. I’m really hoping for lots of picture from this con.

          I love my MS autograph, he’s a really nice person and I loved how he signed it with ‘All my ‘heart’ xo”, it was a nice little gesture. Sean Austin made a little smiley-face on his autograph.

            JT I would have a metallic maker (or paint pen) with me just in case they don't. which reminds me I'll be getting autographs for my sometimes gal pal, so I need to track down a pic of Shep in dress uniform.

Oh yeah, I guess I need to stop at Walgreens later and print some pics to get autographed.

              And the more-than-friend moments... probably are a sign of romantic interest. I know I'm gonna be the typical guy with this line but... Men and women can never be "just friends."
              Mate, I agree. Women can be 'just friends' with men - no issues there - but not the opposite is generally not true. Certainly, it does happen, but it's the woman's decision, not the man's. If it was accepted that this was true (men and women being 'just friends') then women would have no reason to get jealous of other women

              ------

              OT, I did Google Weir action figures and the ’Field Ops Weir’ one made me wish they had let her got out into the field more and that they actually would have let her use the both the p-90 and the other gun they gave her action figure.
              I don't mind it in the action figure, but I wouldn't have wanted to see it on the show. It just doesn't fit with my idea of what the character represented (with is basically Steen's line in TLC - something about how she decided the best way to limit the use of weapons was to end the need for them). That said, she's probably responsible for a good number of deaths by decree, but I wouldn't have wanted to see the blood on her hands. At a pinch, I'd be okay with her shooting someone as a last resort but it'd kinda have to be a bit like that s4 BSG scene with Roslin and Starbuck

              I wonder if that happens a lot? Having seen Firefly after SGA, I think I would have been incredibly annoyed if it were the other way around. I'd be all "Jewel, you can do so much better than......this"

                Agreed. This is something she believes in very strongly, so she's got to be pushed up against a wall with no other way out before she'd do it.

                Sparky is on screen. Therefore, it is canon. Elizabeth is still out there. And John WILL bring her home.

                  I don't know if it does, but she's very aware how some of the fans feel about Keller. I remember the question being asked then at the Q&A and from the way the public then responded it was almost apologetic in some ways. All I cared about was that I was able to ask her then about her Warehouse 13 appearance together with Sean Maher.

                    Someone at that toy company is a Sparky shipper. It's the only logical explanation.

                      Irish I'll be there Friday, since I'm breaking my con rule I"ll go for the gold and stick around for the whole thing. gateraid glad another guy knows where I'm coming from. Speaking of Jewel, during my google images search I found more of a "model" pic of her in a black dress, . Do you think she'd be cool with signing it? And I did see Joe and Torri will be signing on the same night. That should be cool.

                        I don't know if she still brings them, but the Firefly cast did a glamour photoshoot, of which my friends chose this one -> Jewel Staite <- to have signed as a birthday gift to me (mine really says happy birthday).
                        So, I don't think she'd have a problem with it.

                        I'm actually surprised people can bring their own pictures. Cons I've been to didn't allow it - you had to buy at least one official photo to have a personal item signed as well.

                            FH thanks! It's a similar pic. Irish I plan on being there between 1300 and 1400. Not sure if you and JT are flying or driving, but if you're driving get gas outside of the City and Cook county if you can. I'll be gassing up Sweetness (that's the name of my Silverado that gets 12 miles to the gallon) in Indiana. If you're flying the "L" can get you to the con.

                              I was listening to this song and I realized just how perfect it is for John and Elizabeth. Thought I'd share.

                              Hmmmm ... Hmmmm ... Hmmmm ... Hmmm ...

                              When I look into your eyes
                              It's like watching the night sky
                              Or a beautiful sunrise
                              Well, there's so much they hold

                              And just like them old stars
                              I see that you've come so far
                              To be right where you are
                              How old is your soul?

                              Well, I won't give up on us
                              Even if the skies get rough
                              I'm giving you all my love
                              I'm still looking up

                              And when you're needing your space
                              To do some navigating
                              I'll be here patiently waiting
                              To see what you find

                              'Cause even the stars they burn
                              Some even fall to the earth
                              We've got a lot to learn
                              God knows we're worth it
                              No, I won't give up

                              I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
                              I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
                              Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
                              The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
                              And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
                              For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
                              We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
                              I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not
                              And who I am


                              I won't give up on us
                              Even if the skies get rough
                              I'm giving you all my love
                              I'm still looking up
                              Still looking up.

                              I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
                              God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
                              We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
                              God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

                              I won't give up on us
                              Even if the skies get rough
                              I'm giving you all my love
                              I'm still looking up



                              The part in bold sums up so much for me why John and Liz are so perfect for each other. This is now my song for what their relationship would have been like if they'd gotten together later in the show.
                              Oh that song makes me cry everytime I hear it but its so bloody perfect for Sparky, cause you know.....John is still out there looking for her...not giving up. You are like me....always finding Sparky songs.
