Yay! I none less than LOVE this episode. Saffron really shouldn't be messing with River. :-) Finally someone shaking her calm calculating, someone she can't play. Can't say I'm not a little annoyed with River's communication issues right about now though, but that is all as it should be. Wouldn't be a good story if it were all easy. Really looking forward to seeing how it all develops from here.
Have been reading through your stories this past week and lack of reviews up til now is only due to how good they are. Honestly haven't wanted to stop reading long enough to put something down. ;-) You've really tapped in to the feeling of one of my favourite shows in the 'verse. So now I'm off to continue reading, with great anticipation of what's next. Keep writing!

River and Saffron were awesome! I feel sorry for River because she can't think of the right words.

Wonderful, again. Thanks for working so hard on this amazing story.

It seems very strange that Mal wouldn't immediately check that Saffron was secured before questioning River further. Also, I can't understand why they let Saffron out of her room for anything and why they don't have a guard on her all the time. Didn't they learn anything from the last time?
"Too many meanings swirling in her brain, too many feelings, too many stories. The strands got tangled, the meanings obscured. Hard to sort them out, find the pattern. Can't find the clear path through the woods. The trees. The orchard. The grove. "
What a beautiful way to summarize what is going on in River's head. It is easy to think, like the crew so often does, that she is just "cracked" but she's just dealing with so much imput. You found a perfect way to help the reader understand her better.

Oh its just so awful how Mal takes all the horrors in. I cried reading this.

I think we all breathed a sigh of relief seeing Saffron get off our ship, good riddens indeed. But I've never seen anyone write Saffron as well as you. I'm so glad Mal and Inara have come clean, good imagery with the jade egg and the yarnball of secrets, if you start it all comes unraveled. Thank you for a good story.

The insatiable public yells out "more, more, more!" This must be what being chained to your keyboard feels like...
Seriously- very entertaining, imaginative, thankfully well written series. Keep up the great work, all us Browncoats appreciate you!

Well at least Inara finally told Mal why she was pissed and Mal told her she was being an idiot. Yay! Looking forward to the next story.

Love it! Everyone all talking nonsense chicken puns to irritate the hell out of saffron. I do wish you'd get on with mal and inara making up though. I think she's been stubborn long enough.

Nice to see those two talking, sort of. Nice way to end an epic story! And I hope to see some fluff between Mal and Inara...I mean real fluffy fluff.
| Dovebean 11/19/12 . chapter 34
finally with the talking and more importantly the listening! lots of food for inara's thoughts. mal too, just learned that inara can be jealous. so how is saffron going to set off all those devices from afar?
