Thank you for this story. It reached in and played with my innards and that's as you know, a very good thing. If this were for sale I would buy it. If you wrote many more I would buy them too.
I am amazed at how much I care for Kaylee, how much it hurts to see this woman I know is not real, suffering. You captured the entire crew perfectly and I heard them all once again through your words. For that I want to thank you profusely.
I went to Comic Con last year for the 10th anniversary panel and got to meet Jane Espensen( wrote "Shindig" and Tim Minear the executive producer. Tim said that this script entitled "Dead of Alive", written by Cheryl Cain ("Writer of the "War Stories" episode, was indeed a real script that was possibly going to be shot. I imagine you know about this already, but if not, I hope you like it.
Also, I would truly love to read more Firefly from you.
Thank you again,
Roger " Jayne Tam" Kea

I loved this story - I love how you've taken Kaylee, the heart of Firefly, and made her into the centre of this story, with all the characters in her periphery. Your character voices are amazing and I love how you've played with the chronology.

So I'd read this once before, and found it again. I love, love, love your writing style. It's so true to the syntax and language and semantics that Whedon created with the show and the culture. And I love the structure - the way you start with the initial discovery, and then weave old flashbacks with the more recent flashbacks that led up to the events at hand.
It's well plotted, and beautifully written. So much love for this. :)

This was absolutely amazing! I could see this really happening if they had not taken Firefly off the air!

You are Awesome! This may be the best Firefly story I've ever read. The language, the characterizations ... All just lovely. Added to a nice, long, engaging narrative, (which you actually completed!) and you win all the awards.
Sorry that someone tried to steal your work, but so glad that this story resurfaced.
Kudos, fellow Browncoat. ( Funny that you picked the name 'Castlebridge', though... Lol,)

This is truly amazing. I love it.

This is one of the best fanfiction stories I have ever read. The characters are more spot on than anything I have come across, and the plot could not have been better chosen. Choosing Kaylee as the victim in this story was genius seeing as how she is the most innocent and the most loved of any of the characters. You know well how to use drama and passion and I am very pleased to have come across this work.

Really well done. Bravo.

Such a great story, I wish I could articulate it more, but I just wanted to say that I was really impressed and I really enjoyed it. Very emotionally stimulating and I am sorry someone took credit for it, it completely baffles me why someone could justify that in their mind, but I am glad you had such a good attitude about it, it is very admirable.

Just wanted to say that this is one of my favorite stories ever. I've been reading it (and rereading it) since I discovered it on your livejournal(?) years ago. You write the Kaylee/Simon dynamic so well, it makes me wish for what could have been. As far as I'm concerned, your fanfics are as good as canon to me. :)

"Sigh" plagiarism seems to be on the increase lately, I'm sorry that it has happened to you. How people think that they will get away with it is baffling.
I really enjoyed this novella despite the subject matter. I loved the juxtaposition between bits and pieces of Kaylee's past and the POV of Mal and Simon after her attack. The descriptions were great as were the characterisations - even after all she's been through Kaylee is still quietly strong and optimisic at the end.
Thanks for a very entertaining read :)

An excellent piece of work. I literally stayed up all night reading it because I couldn't step away from it. The banter was very well done, and the characterizations were excellent. My favorite character from the series is Jayne, and while this story quite rightfully cast him more as a background character, his appearances were very worthy of him and spot-on. River, I think, would be one of the toughest characters to write well, with her frequent inability to express clearly what she knows to be true. Again, you've done very well with this, and with the other characters ability to partially understand her. All in all, an excellent piece that I am very glad that you wrote. Thank you for your time and dedication in this work of literary art.

I recognized the story of course, it's a relatively famous one in firefly circles. I just assumed that you were using a new pen name.
Didn't realize that someone would be stupid enough to plagarize it but we've seen stupider.
