I have looked forward to each installation in this series, because I love the leisurely pace that you take. I enjoy the word pictures that you paint, the poetic phrases that reflect River's world view so well. I like the way River and Jayne are in a prolonged dance - like a formal minuet or one of those old fashion danced where there is lots of eye contact, but not much touching. :) Yummy!

I AM LOVING THIS. Even though I am typically a Jaylee shipper, I am finding this AMAZINGLY well written, and you have River down *PAT*.

Can't wait to see where this is going...HURRY!

(that "hurry" was supposed to be a funny comment in re: your A/N! And its an EXTREME compliment coming from me...I do NOT eagerly await Rayne fics)

I am also loving the character development in these stories. It flows naturally, and believably. I keep looking to see if a new one is up yet. I'll be very disapointed when the series is complete only because there will be no more new treats.

This is a series I come back and reread, enjoying each as much on the second, third and fourth readings as I did on the first.

Hi, and thanks for another wonderful installment! I have no tips on how to improves these ficlets because they're just really great. I'm waiting eagerly for your next update. Thanks again for doing such a great job!

Cheers, Tan.

ps: I completely agree with your A/N :).

After your AN thought I better be good and reply.

I do like the fics. I like the slow build and the River POVs. I like how River's thoughts seem odd and a little random but not nuts, or illogical. You can see where it's coming from.

Oh and I love Jayne. That's all, just love Jayne. And River. And Rayne.

I'm sorry for offending you with urges to write faster, they weren't meant as insults. I get incredibly excited whenever I find that you've put up another installment of this series because you're a good writer, and I like the way that you portray the charcters of Firefly. My enthusiasm sometimes gets the better of me, and I apologize. I suppose I shouldn't ge so agressive, because I know how hard it is to write and keep to a schedual.

Keep up the good work, and I look forward to an update, whenever that may be.

Woohoo, another great installment. I always look forward to reading these-they're a little bright spot in an otherwise ordinary day.


PS Incidentally, don't take it too much to heart when reviewers tell you to write faster-they're just ornery, impatient people living vicariously through the writing talents of others.

Beautiful as always

I love your River-voice, I think you have it down perfectly. I do so love Jayne/River fics :)

I love the bear analogy. It's very true, and very cute. Mama bear indeed :)
