This is a Serenity.
Anyone else excited for the Christmas storytime?
It's the greatest /co/ tradition next to Night of the Were-Ed
sides have left Earth's atmosphere.
>actually read Were-Ed this year
>all that everything
I-I'm gonna do it, /co/. After all these years I swear I'm going to read Serenity with you.
I've been doing it for the past like 4 years and I still look forward to posting it
I'm gonna have to get another 4chan pass after last year's retarded captcha shit unless someone else decides they want to storytime it first
happy winter solstice then
its what most people celebrate they just call it christmas
It's a quite clever and mentally challenging deconstruction of the Christian Young Adult Educational Comic genre that delves deep into the psyche's of the main cast in a very unique way, not only creating a believable cast of flawed yet relatable characters, but also created a fictional world that managed to mirror our own in a way that felt so real you could reach out and touch it.
Simply put, it's a masterpiece.
Pure girls are best girls.
>It's December now
>Christmas is a mere couple of weeks away
Where did the time go
This year has flown by so fast.
I'm happy about it. I spent this year whining like a bitch, hating my life, hating myself, and not doing shit about it. I mean, I'm still gonna hate myself next year, but at least it'll be a little less.
Something I've always wondered - how does this work? Is the storytime just done by the first Anon to start posting on Christmas? Is it planned? It's such a tradition that it feels like it shouldn't be random.
>another year passes by
>still waiting for a life-saving organ transplant
Well, hope it's soon, but I've been saying that for quite a while now. I'm guessing it'll only happen at a time when I'm completely unprepared. I mean, I can still keep living, but I'm on borrowed time here. Something's gotta give. Either let me live and try to repair my life and get things in order before I die or just end it now, fuck.
This probably isn't the kind of reassurance you wanted, but lord fucking knows there's tons of dipshits out there riding motorcycles with light gear or no helmets. And as we approach Christmas, the roads are going to have more black ice on supposedly "warm" days than ever before. Some jackass is going to hurdle his handlebars, crack his skull into paste, and leave you with a functioning and unharmed organ ready for the harvesting. Just have faith and trust in drunken stupidity, Anon.
There was some super cute little fic someone whipped up in one of the older Serenity threads about Lori confessing her homolust to Serenity, who totally took it in stride and helped her come to terms with it. Ended with some smooching and groping if I remember right, but still really cute.
I wish I'd saved it.
>Eventually she will get married to some guy and realize to late that she has no feelings for him
>She will be trapped in the marriage because divorce is a sin
>Starts drinking heavily to numb her pain
>Her daughter eventually comes out and she is disowned because a sin
>In reality she is jealous of her daughter and hates her because she had the strength to do what Lori couldn't
>Never speaks to her again
It's not Christmas yet! Stop depressing me!
It's something I can easily accept. My mom has a harder time living up to something like secretly wishing for death so I can continue to live.
You just get kinda impatient after nearly a year of waiting. All this time being too weak and sick to do things for myself and having to rely on my parents when I'm nearly 30 wreaks havoc on your nerves and psyche. I have no friends and the only person I consider a friend is my brother who lives far away in another city. I only get to see him about twice a year. At least he'll be visiting for Christmas, so I have that to look forward to. I just want this transplant so I can move out on my own and live my own life -- make some friends, get married, just spend the years I'm afforded post-transplant content and accomplished. The waiting is excruciating and the longer it takes, the more your confidence and hope fades.
Anyone else think Lori was a poorly written character? I mean, Lori's flaw is that she has same sex attractions, but unlike the other characters it never deals with them. and the problem with that is that that's kinda the message of the comic, that Jesus loves us in our brokenness and heals us, that's Serenity's entire arch of going from a deranged delinquent with prettym much everythign going wrong in her life, to a Christian who pulled her life together. I think it would have been more satisfying if Lori got more attention or if the creator couldn't deal with that issue, just give her a different flaw.
I think you missed the point of the comic. The guy addicted to porn gets rightly reprimanded in a sense because its wrong. its a temptation he has to fight it. Lori's think is no different.
If I remember correctly, that was the author's problem with the series in general. He set things up like that to expand on them, but didn't have time to finish them.
Shit, I think I shouldn't be saying anything, lest I take away from the storytime.
Of course you can, You can choose not to sleep with someone, that is a choice you make. People are not born gay, or straight, they have attraction when they hit puberty, and its their choice to act on them or not. Its the same with waiting for marriage.
Hayao speaks the truth.
Have a funny picture
Of course you can, It doesn't make it right. Frankly Christians who think homosexuality is not a sin are only fooling themselves. interesting coincidence you came to this enlightening conclusion about sexual morality the same time it got popular acceptance.
I'm kind of sad the Serenity fanworks thread was never recreated on plus4chan's new boards that replaced the old boards.
Though I'm not sure how much of a purpose it would serve since new pics, fics, and edits don't happen that much anymore.
Except, no he didn't he got told off because he was about to to take sexual advantage of an emotionally distressed girl.
What is Buzz working on that he could not just continue? I mean he knows that there is a bi yearly storytime of his work. Part of me wishes he would self publish more content :/
I've had people make screencaps of shit I barely even remember typing. The Internet never fucking forgets. There's always some idiot out there who saved what you did.
And this idiot likes what you did very much.
Which sounds mighty unfair on those born with exclusive same sex attraction.
Why should they be shackled to lifelong celibacy? Why should they be judged for wanting to consummate feelings of love towards a consensual, mutually caring partner? Love never fails, after all.
>a pair of fresh lungs
Shit, nigga. This is why euthanasia needs to be legal. If the quality of your life is so shitty (and getting shittier) and there's little to no hope of getting a transplant, the more humane thing to do would take you out back and shoot you than letting you rot aware and in pain while you cling to what little life your body can give you.
I'm sorry, anon.
Additionally, men should wear their hair short. Women should wear theirs long. Disobedient children will be stoned to death. No shellfish, bacon. Respect the Sabbath or be stoned to death.
Y'know, follow all the rules.
Crops or fanart, yes. Don't post the comic, that would be a dick move.
