I am actually heartbroken and slightly confused over the fact that there are people who have seen Firefly/Serenity and actually hate Simon Tam like how do you not at least have a little bit of respect for him? his life was perfect; beyond perfect actually. He had everything he ever could want- money, a good job, status, life on a core planet, wanting for nothing, and he literally threw everything away to save his sister. Then when he found her, with scientist manufactured schizophrenia, he did everything in his gorram power to keep her safe. Not only that, but when a fellow crew member SOLD HIM OUT, he basically told him that regardless of his actions he’d always be safe when in Simons infirmary.
EVERY SINGLE ACTION THIS MAN TAKES IS OUT OF PURE LOVE. HE LITERALLY HAS A HEART OF GOLD AND WHILE YES HE MAKES MISTAKES BECAUSE HE’S HUMAN HE STILL IS A GIFT AND FULL OF SO MUCH COMPASSION FOR HUMANITY THAT I HONESTLY CANNOT UNDERSTAND THE NOTION OF PEOPLE NOT LIKING SIMON.
I just finished Firefly and Serenity for the first time (which is why my blog is covered in it). So amazing!!! And Simon Tam is wonderful and beautiful and perfect and I will not be convinced otherwise. And so is his sister. I just have so many feels about this wonderful show!!!!
Simon Tam is one of my favorite characters because he stops in the middle of a mission he planed to help his sister to save a dying patient and then proceeds to yell at the doctor who fucked the patient up.
Can I spend the rest of my life observing Sean Maher and his perfection?
