Sci-Fi Month: Things I Love: KILLJOYS

Last year during #SciFiMonth, I wrote about a trope that is near and dear to my heart, spaceship crews that double as found families.  I love when misfits come together, when they bicker like there's no tomorrow, while simultaneously putting their lives on the line for each other without hesitation.  So it should come as...
