A Whedonesquer giving away 6 tickets to the June 23 Indianapolis preview. Since Shakespeare isn't supposed to link to his own good deed, I thought I would.

Shakespeare's original message on the thread annoucing the confirmed screenings was:

"FREE SERENITY TICKETS: INDIANAPOLIS

After watching a greedy individual purchase 20 tickets to scalp on eBay (oh yes, he will be going to that special hell), I decided that it was high time to spread some goodwill. So, I'm giving away six tickets (3 sets of 2) to the Indianapolis, IN screening.

I'll post this in it's own thread, lest it get buried here, but for now just follow this link to enter:

Serenity Ticket Giveaway

Pass on the Goodwill. Best of luck. Keep Flying!
Shakespeare | June 09, 20:27 CET "

Now that's the kind of thing I like to see. Shakespeare bringing the Browncoat love. Shiny!
You rock, man. Good for you.
I was shocked to come back and find this sitting front and center. Thanks to newcj for putting it up. I wish I could give out more tickets *insert poor writer defense here*

I have had a few Browncoats pleading for just 1 single ticket. So, I might consider splitting up one set to share the wealth. If you want only one ticket, please mention that in your entry.

I hope that any of you with a spare ticket can see your way toward not selling it on Ebay, but giving it to a deserving fan (or at least getting rid of it at face value). Everyone here has worked so hard to keep this boat flying! Lets stick it to the Reavers, err I mean scalpers...

To fight the good fight....always noble...
You are incredible, Shakespeare. A true browncoat.
Good form!

Of course, it makes the rest of us selfish browncoaters feel guilty, but it's nice that there's at least some nice people out there!
No, thank you, Shakespeare. It is always nice to be able to call attention to someone doing something good.

BTW, this is my first post so I'm glad it was positive.
Shakespeare, very nice of you!
This is cool, but I never understand why people buy so many tickets. Were you intending to go with a party but ended up having to cancel?
I watched several scalpers pick up twenty tickets each (to put on Ebay) and it really ticked me off. Like many, I was shut out of the first two screenings by that sort of behavior. So, I picked up a couple of extra tickets to share some goodwill. Hopefully, a few Browncoats will follow suit and at least offer up the occasional spare ticket without heading to Ebay.
Very admirable, Shakespeare. And, dare I presume, par for the Browncoat course. I'm so proud to call myself a fan, especially when it means I'm lumped in with someone like you. Three cheers for the Bard!
I think it is wonderful! I am an hour and a half away from the theater in Indianapolis, and was unable to get there to purchase them. If and when it did go up on Fandango, I was in class (stupid college...grumble mumble)... so I may just get the chance yet!

Thank you, Shakespeare. <3
Ah, sweetness.... this kind of gesture is balm for a Browncoat's heart. :-)
Thats a nice gesture - I'm curious to know how many emails you get. I have visions of your inbox overflowing after half a day judging by how quickly the screenings sold out
Just wanted to add my compliments to you, Shakespeare. :) Shiny!
And to newcj: Great first link!

Legendary :)
You rock! Too bad I'm nowhere near you, or else I would enter.

The world needs more people like you. The scalpers make me go "bah, humbug"!
My longer post is somewhere a little after Simon's 500th post.
If you want two free tix to TAMPA, see my "terms and conditions" on the other thread. :)
Hope it makes up for someone's scalper hatred and seething frustration. Only 2 other Browncoats and myself profit by giving them away.
Shakespeare just raised the bar in scalper-combatting.
:) Yay!
ETA: You know, if a few people offered up a few tix in each city, and I'm sure many are doing that, I think it's totally fair, because Browncoats in all areas at least have a chance to get tix they wouldn't otherwise have. And when you buy tix for any event, the purchase of 4-8 is entirely standard procedure (coming from one who worked at an arena and smaller surrounding venues for eight years).
Slightly OT: Watch out in Newport, KY (Cincinatti). In the same gorram area, or at the KY-based Cin. airport, I was arrested for consuming three bourbon and cokes at the airport during spring break watching my alma mater's bball team sail on into the final 8, 'cause bball there is religion and all. They um, don't have much to do in that area because I was sitting there when it happened, not talking to a soul and minding my own business. It was not like A&E's Airport. There was no postponement 'til the next flight. Very small Southern towns tend to be that way... and now I have an arrest record.

I've gotten about 50 emails so far, all from people who went way out of their way to try to get tickets. I wish I had tickets for everyone, but as it stands now everyone has a pretty good chance.
Shakespeare, but your right hand on you left shoulder. Now put your left hand on yout right shoulder. Squeeze real hard. You have now received a virtual hug from me! I may be sending an email your way if I can't get ShelaghC's extras. You totally rock my world. A true browncoat indeed!
For what little it's worth, I'm giving away at least two tickets in Portland, albeit with a contest attached:

The Six-Word 'Serenity' Contest

If this violates the self-link policy, I apologize.
HudsonVC (and others), I addressed the self-link issue at the end of the monster thread but, just to reiterate quickly:

self-links in the comments section are fine if relevant to the discussion; they are not allowed on the front page. Check the About page for fun facts on this and other Whedonesque policies. :)
