I've just submitted a new character to Atlantis. I'm probably one of the first RPers to use the actor Renee Felice Smith as a character avatar:
This is her.
For those of you going "Who on Sihnon is she?" - she plays Nell Jones in NCIS: Los Angeles (which might be obvious from the URL)
I digress. This sparky young new merc is going to be called Susan Ling - or Sue Ling for short.
The competition is to guess which cult science-fiction character she's named after - and as a bonus, how Firefly uses a bit of dialogue from the show (and by extension, a classic Western) in one of its early episodes.
I'll give you a clue; the show is British and the creator created something very nasty.
