Not what I was expecting, but I like it.

Just reread every chapter again. I enjoy this story so much.

Thank you for this entertaining story, please keep the chapters coming. :)

Sorry, I've lost interest in this. It now seems that your primary purpose has very little to do with Firefly and its inimitable cast and more to do with showing us your new thesaurus. Turgidity, when taken as an end unto itself, quickly deteriorates into pompous flatulence that loses all appeal, especially when included in florid prose which bends characterization to the will of the author.

Hmm. Two points. I thoroughly enjoy your verbosity (in spite of the excessive, unnecessary, use of commas, where semicolons would clearly be indicated); so perhaps I was a bit premature in expecting a corresponding familiarity with grammar and spelling. Very disappointed by this chapter. Not once but twice did you resort to using "it's" for the possessive form of the pronoun "it;" surely you are aware that "it's" is a contraction of "it is," and therefore has no place in either of the locations where you placed it. Second: I seem to remember that "Firefly" was a TV show. As a network program there was no place for gross profanity such as "f***" or "s***." Even in the movie Joss was very careful to avoid it, as indicated in the commentaries by him and Nathan. So why you be messin' up my "Firefly?" On a much more positive note, I laugh out loud at some of the utterings that come out of Jayne's mouth at your direction. This is original, unique, and quite enjoyable. Oh! Number three. ( I was so wound up in my own turgidity that I almost forgot!) Wasn't Bellerohon a planet that featured large bodies of water, over which floated islands of luxurious dwellings for the rich? Seems like I remember that from the episode "Trash." So why is it now a backward, semi-developed world suited to outlaws of Mal's ilk? As I said before, "Hmm."

I simply adore the way you molest my brain with your big words.
I have missed this.
and I am very sorry that I have not been able to provide you with any helpful stabs in the creative backsides.

Every time I read a new chapter of your work it makes me want to go back and reread everything you've written.
| vandevere chapter 23 . 5/29/2014
I'm glad you got back into this. It's so nice to see GeniusJayne, PricklyMal, and the Operative, back in action again, debating Shakespeare, and morality, and probably getting in over their heads...
Hope there's more...
| Bladefax chapter 23 . 5/29/2014
Well regardless of how many are still following this story... I think you did an outstanding job.
| Guest chapter 6 . 5/28/2014
Just started reading your story after seeing it in the recently updated list - really interesting characterization of Jayne, and well written to boot! Thanks for writing. :)
| SusanMarieS chapter 23 . 5/28/2014
Thanks so much for the update. It's just what I needed. Lol. Loved the way you started it as well, and great use of Jayne in this one.
| Doc Coldflame chapter 23 . 5/28/2014
Seeing the update for this in my inbox made my month. No more need be said. I look forward to what The Operative has to say, and for some reason I want to see The Operative and Jayne team up and match wits.
| Anatoly chapter 22 . 7/1/2013
You have made a terrible Mary Sue of Jayne Cobb; formerly an introverted, antisocial, weight lifting killer has become a pseudo intellectual who can't make a decision without an internal, circular discussion of the most irrelevant bullshit imaginable. (Is this really the way you see yourself?)
Don't post any more of this crap. As a matter of fact, you should probably remove all that you have posted so that no one else falls afoul of it.
| USAFChief chapter 2 . 6/27/2013
Within this chapter you refer to Jayne being stabbed. Watch that particular scene again, and I believe you will find that he was slashed, not stabbed.
There's some pretty good stuff here. You say you're blocked on writing for this particular story. I'm gonna read it anyway and when I get to the point that you've stopped, I'm gonna raise hell until you write again - even if it means I come and take your damn kids for a month (and I don't like little kids anymore since mine all grew up and left.)

You know, this story itself seems to have a Shakespearean slant to it- all musings and philosophy and characters simply interacting. so far, it's very...pleasant:)
ps your vocab is giving me a workout, but hey I'm not complainin
