My humble little circle of internet peoplz has been discussing the tv show Firefly a bit lately – specifically, which character(s) we have crushes on.
All the talking made me haul out the Firefly box set last night so Minx and I could watch the first few episodes together. I asked Minx who he thought my main Firefly crush would be (out of the boys) and he immediately said Simon. When I asked why, he said “He has a nervousness about him. And he’s a caretaker.” (Note to people who don’t watch Firefly: not caretaker as in janitor; Minx was talking about how sweet, nurturing, and protective Simon acts, especially toward his mentally unstable sister.)
So yeah, Minx has a pretty uncanny idea of what I like in a boy personality-wise. He’s not quite there on the looks front, though; he figured my second choice would be Wash, and although Wash scores big points with me for being “the funny one”, he’s far enough from my physical type that I don’t think I’d wanna do anything with him but hang out and play with plastic dinosaurs together.
(I don’t know that I have a second choice, really. Jayne is hot but way too much of a manly-man, and not too bright. I find Mal reasonably attractive and he has a good personality…but the way he keeps slut-shaming Inara is a total buzzkill. Book is too old.)
