| Susan M. M chapter 1 . 10/1/2010
Not the background I give Book in my stories, but very believable. Very plausible.
| Susan M. M chapter 9 . 10/1/2010
How very like River to see, or rather hear, her shipmates as songs. And how apt her descriptions are of each one.
| Susan M. M chapter 5 . 10/1/2010
Nice moment with Inara and River ... and probably true that had things been different, Simon would have married a girl his parents approved of, and then wondered why he went to to see Inara or someone like her so often.
| Susan M. M chapter 3 . 10/1/2010
Absolutely, perfectly Zoe.
| Ella Greggs chapter 7 . 7/25/2010
Amazing that you wrote this so early in the series, and way, way before the movie, and still nailed the characters so well. I didn't like the Simon so much, just because it implied his parents packed River off to the Academy eagerly even though they knew she'd be experimented on, but I think they clearly had no idea that would happen to her. But I loved the Inara, the Mal and the River particularly. And I've thought for a long time that Book must have been an Operative before, but I like the idea that he was a shady card shark. Very original.

Terrific job with character voices - particularly River. Great work!
| Red Bess Rackham chapter 9 . 12/29/2005
Dude, this was amzing. Everyone - every chapter was *very* well done. Very in character. River's was so weird and cool and random and different. Inara's was long and interesting. Kaylee's was cute and sweet. Jayne's was short and - Jayne. Zoe and Mal's were very well suited. Simon's was so easy to imagine and gave interesting background. Wash's was adorable and funny.

Wow, 9 very nice stories. Job well done...
| Simple Enigma chapter 4 . 10/3/2005
this was a fantastic idea! i absolutely love it! to bad i didnt think of it first ;)
| Johinsa chapter 1 . 12/21/2002
Beautiful! This is really great stuff; inner-monologue stories are hard to do right for even one character, let alone this many. Very impressive!
| Kerowyn chapter 9 . 12/14/2002
good insights into their personalities. i couldn't access the Kaylee chapter for some reason.
| Firefly Fan chapter 9 . 12/9/2002
Nice Job! I especially liked Wash's chapter and the poignant, insightful chapter dealing with River, though her description of Kaylee in that chapter could have been elaborated on a bit. Other than that, great story.
| Brit chapter 9 . 12/8/2002
This is good. This chapter especially. Very well thought out and very clever.
| Kryptonite chapter 9 . 12/8/2002
Here's a question? Is chapter 9 the end? I really like the way you've written this. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

You truly have talent with writing through different personas. In the eight chapters of this fic, I've seen you address each character's individual thoughts in a unique way (they don't all start with the same "If somebody told me ..." and I think that's fantastic). You've done a splendid job of conveying each person's own attitude (and even some history, though Simon's is a bit different according to the unaired pilot) through your writing. This is excellent! (btw, loved Jayne's bit: "Did I mention the pay was good?")
