"Hero of Canton" (Jayne Cobb, Firefly)

Title: Hero of Canton
Character: Jayne Cobb
Fandom: Firefly
Author: inlovewithnight
Spoilers: For the entire, tragically brief run of the TV series. I'm going into the movie spoiler-free if it KILLS me.
Notes: Jayne is a right bastard, just so you know. He refused to make writing this essay easy for me, sitting there grinning in my brain while I beat my head against the desk. But, in the end, I managed to get some words together. As with any of these essays, it's all IMHO, your HO may vary. :)
Oh, yes, and in the interest of full disclosure: I begin this essay with a comparison that may hurt your brain.

Let's get this out of the way right up front: Adam Baldwin is very, very easy on the eyes and has stunning comic timing. That alone would be enough to make me a squealing Jayne fangirl. But that would also be a very, very short essay and hardly worthy of your idol_reflection reading time. So I'll go on for a bit more.
