Reason #247 that sci-fi rocks.

Sci-fi shows have the best actors ever.

The short version: Fans pay to attend a convention. The company running it cancels the convention at the last minute. Fans show up anyway, because some of them were already in the air on the way to the hotel.

Other fans rally, the actors hear about what happened, and show up anyway. Fun is had by all, fandom is happy.

Firefly rocks.

One of my friends is pretty active in the whole Browncoat thing -- he's got some pics of the actors at the backup bash -- Joe

I'm not even a "fan" in the E-ian sense (I think Liverpool has me and that's about all I can handle for one lifetime) and still think this is, to use a useful Americanism, "awesome!!!"

Btw, yes, I am two days behind on my "favourite things" post. Been not well and moping :-(

I'm not in the fandom directly (although I've been to cons for other things), but it's a great story--and the people I know who are into the Joss 'verse say that this sort of thing is a big part of why they're such fans.

Priya! Quit moping and post!
