So, we went for our evening walk tonight, and I was talking about a technical thing in the random_urges fic I'm currently working on. And he thought about it for all of five seconds and said "But wouldn't it be better if..."
And he was right.
He's more mechanically-minded than I am, and so his brain works better in areas like that. And I love that I can bounce stuff off of him in the Firefly fandom and have him come out with things that improve the process for me immeasurably.
He is teh awesome.
