Marathon Creed

(no subject)

I had a really, really weird Firefly dream, about my original character. o.O

The Alliance have stepped up to taking people indulging in illegal activities and prodding around with their brains, just for the hell of it. After all, no one's gonna complain about missing people who have no real roots anyway, are they?

So they've taken my pilot, Zhen Xia (Nyx), and another couple of her crew, to a base that isn't all futuristic, but isn't all like the past either, and they've been prodding around in their brains.

They rather like the youngest crewmember's brains, so they leave her to wander around. She's even kinda brainwashed into thinking that it's all inevitable and she can't do anything about it.

Creepy thing is when Mal, Zoe, Jayne and Wash turn up. Turns out Nyx is one of Mal's past lovers (and even in my dream, here my brain was screaming "ONLY MARY SUES HAVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH CANON CHARACTERS!!!!!"), and he breaks down her sudden belief in the inevitability ("Mr. Anderson") of everything and decides to help her rescue her crew.

Then I woke up. :(

Lessee... I ordered that on February 15th. Everything was supposed to be here by now, since the very last delivery date on all of 'em was today.

Now, what email did I get today again?




Dear Customer,

We wanted to give you an update on the status of your order [####].

We are sorry to report that the following items have been delayed.

Joss Whedon "Serenity"

Our current estimate is that it will take an additional 1-2 weeks to
obtain these items for you.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.




Now... what comic is sat right there behind me, waiting for me to finish? Oh, wait, that'd be 'Serenity', by Joss Whedon.

So tell me again, what the HELL do they think they're doing? How can they NOT find a comic that I know is at TWO of the three stores I go to (I didn't even go into the third, I always spend more there than I mean to)?

Delay a comic that's out already, and apparently has been for a long time now? WHAT. THE. HELL?

They're going the right way to ensure I never use 'em again.




EDIT: BTW, everything else on that list is now in this house too. I went to Virgin Megastores and the D&D shop to get the DVDs and RPG. No. Fucking. Excuse. So what the Wallace & Gromit DVD doesn't have the 'exclusive packaging', isn't that the packaging that was released at least ONE WEEK ago? Although I think it might actually have been two or more weeks now.

No reason WHATSOEVER for those things to be delayed, and I am pissed off.
