What’s with Serenity’s Reavers not Reaving each other

Sci-Fi Theorizer: Serenity’s Reavers

Contest Hosted by Joe Crowe, December 01, 2005

What’s with . . . Serenity’s Reavers not Reaving each other?

7. Revelation: Recreant Reavers revel in rarely revealing relevant self-reaving recreation. (Righteous, right-thinking Reavers relegate self-reaving Reavers to Reaver rehabilitation.) (vplexico)

6. They love each other. Like Paul Simon sang, there must be 50 ways to love your Reaver. (dchilders)

5. Reaving another Reaver must have the same social stigma as looking at other guys when you’re standing in a men’s bathroom.

4. That would be like eating your own mom, man! (truthseeker)

3. It’s the same thing as Zombies not eating each other... Why eat something that ate something good, when you can just eat something good. (spam01)

2. They don’t like to get their body mutilations all tangled up. I mean once that lawn dart through your cheek gets afixed to the meat hook protruding from their thigh, it’ll be all friggin night to get undone. (shade668)

1. When you Reave a Reaver, you’re not just Reaving that Reaver: You’re Reaving every Reaver that that Reaver ever Reaved. (gbeenie)

  • Wow, that’s funny! No, wait...it’s tedious and boring. My mistake.
  • You gots to know when to hold ’em. Know when to fold ’em. Know when to chow ’em down. And, know when to chum.

    You can’t count your epidermis’, ’Tilll everyone’s done their rapin’. They’ll be time enough to pierce your buns... [SOMEBODY ELSE FINISH]

    "bun piercing", re: Jackass DVD’s — stocking stuffer idea.

    I thought the Reavers were going to turn out to be Vampires. I.e., the fear reactions (Jayne’s face); they eat people, make "more" of their kind [sire], they come from "imaginable darkness" - Mal to Alliance officer in "Bushwacked" episode. Also both Fray & Firefly had that future thing. Thought this when the picutre of River with long machete & axe/sicle thing. She looked a lot like a Slayer to me...

    Also, check out Adam Baldwin’s dental work, and compare to Urkonn’s teethy grins in Fray comic books. Also borh Urkonn & Jayne were decently horny... Thought River Tam might end up to be Meleka Fray...
