"Your highness" is gender neutral.
So you know, if you’re ever confused about my pronouns.
alternatively, “your majesty,” “my liege,” and “supreme overlord”
please note that “your grace” is also acceptable
I am so done with people going, “Kaylee can’t be innocent! She likes to have sex!” When I put together that gifset, neither I nor Nathan (who the quote is from and is the one who said Kaylee is representative of of Mal’s lost innocence) meant that she is chaste. No, she is the innocence of the ship because her worldview is free of the cynicism that so deeply stains the worldview of not only Mal but every other member of the crew. She knows the kinds of things the universe is capable of, but she does not allow it to darken the way she sees things.
That is also why she’s such an important member of the crew.
Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 1950s, when vinyl was scarce, people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays. With the help of a special device, banned bootlegged jazz and rock ‘n’ roll records were “pressed” on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 23-25 centimeters in diameter. “They would cut the X-ray into a crude circle with manicure scissors and use a cigarette to burn a hole,” says author Anya von Bremzen. “You’d have Elvis on the lungs, Duke Ellington on Aunt Masha’s brain scan — forbidden Western music captured on the interiors of Soviet citizens.”
THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME
