I love this. So much. There is seriously nothing I don't love about this story. But seeing as I just stayed up until 4 am finishing it, I have nothing more coherent to say about it. Just...love.
Thanks for sharing!

Aside from wishing this was broken down in chapters for easier reading, it was (is) one of the best Firefly stories I've ever read. There were some points I was a bit confused, but that was because you made the narrating sound like the way they talk, which I enjoyed immensely. This story is fantastic, I enjoyed every bit, and I'm sad to have finished it. Brilliant job!

Beautiful. You got the "voices" exactly right, the rhythm is absolutely Whedon-esque. I could picture the whole thing clearly . What a wonderful story.
I especially appreciated the physicality of how you portrayed Mal-it was putting into words what one sees in "Out of Gas," the unfathomable ability to press on and press on and press on, when anyone else would realize it's time to lie down and die.
And what an awesome job with River, as well.
thank you. This was amazing.

Wow, what can I possibly say to *that*? Except: FAN-BLOODY-TASTIC!
Everything from characterization, to voice, to description, and Mal's dialect in the narration added a very nice touch, and it wasn't overdone in the least bit which was nice because you could actually *hear* the character behind it. And, I love that Jayne named this particular gun Audrey, and that it allows the reader to assume he's named all of his guns. One of which I hope is named Mary-Ann because, come on. Like he doesn't have a gun named Mary-Ann. And Zoe was so good in this. I loved her interaction with Mal and Wash. And I *really* liked Mal in this. He totally would stay up all night to protect Serenity. Plus his obvious love for the crew made my heart melt. And I totally wasn't annoyed one bit with Book, so yay! There was never a point where I felt: "Shut up, Book." which is new for me, so thank you.
And the ending. How PERFECT! You wrote the buildup to that one scene so nicely that it was slightly agonizing but in a good way. Plus, it was so *them* that it ended on this unsure note because that's totally Mal/Inara, and have I mentioned that Mal all tongue tied makes me smile like a moron?
I don't know why this story doesn't have more reviews because it is every bit what a phenomenal fanfic should be what with the excellent plot/characterization/dialogue/Jayne in boxers, etc. But let me just tell you that this has been one of the best stories I've read in this entire section. Really brilliantly done.

That was a great short! I love how you got the language and accents of the characters down perfectly. Jayne in his undies washing dishes made me laugh. The relationship between Mal and River was touching and perfect. Awesome job!

Fun and sweet. Different than most fics, nice for a change not to have Mal and whoever finish a job against unmentionable odds. Thanks for sharing your fic!

This is lovely. It reads like an episode. You have that 'verse rim lingo down and it can be tricky.

Shiny Shiny Shiny!
Eveything was simply marvelous - plot, characterisations, drama, angst! I felt you really captured Mal's love of ship and crew and his need to see them all safe - all bar himself of course. Inara coming to the rescue was a nice touch
Thanks for the fab fic

Yay - claps hands in joy - another great story just devoured whole and as I smack my lips in appreciation I wing over to the author big mega thanks for having the skills to give me such a tasty treat. Great writing as usual.

I read this through in one go, couldn't stop, not until I knew how everything was going to work out in the end. The language, and the plot, and everything, it just feels so *right*. Very much like Firefly, very true to the characters - very interesting idea too. Did like how it played out in the end too. Thank you for writing this, I can't say how happy I was to find such a good long fic for Firefly!
