FIREFLY FANFIC

For Chapter 4 of my dissertation I'm attempting to creatively explore faith within the 'verse by writing a fanfic. The three ideas that I am pursing at the moment are:

1.) During the pilot episode 'Serenity', the crew, with the exception of Mal, bow their heads and say grace silently - I'm going to attempt to write their prayers.

2.) I'm going to juxtapose the meal that the crew share in 'Out of Gas' and the subsequent experience that Mal goes through when he is left to die alone (and sheds much blood in the process) with the biblical story of Jesus and his disciples at the Last Supper and in the Garden of Gethsemane.

3.) I intend to look at some of the characteristics that are begining to be named as being part of the Emerging Church (e.g. http://www.emergingchurch.info/reflection/stevetaylor/index.htm) whilst asking the question 'what sort of church would Shepherd Book lead?' and let the answer take a narrative form.

Help please - anyone know of similar fanfics/stories? Any ideas will be gratefully received and acknowledged.

Hi Julie- said I would drop by.... if you have time, this post is the best I have found linking differing missiology articles. You will find stubs on the emerging church as well.

Keep going!
