This was absolutely wonderful - so very happy I stumbled across it! Thank you for a very satisfying evening with these two fascinating characters.

This is really a superb story. It's well written and the voices of all the characters are perfect. I'm so glad I stumbled on it. Thank you very much for writing it so long ago. I hope you are pleased that it is still getting rave reviews.

This was so well-written and in character! I was hanging on to every word. The cover is also quite beautiful:)

So much love for this. :)

So I just got into firefly about two weeks ago and this is one of the first fanfics I've read in the fandom. Thank TVtrops for that :P
I'm so glad I clicked on the link. This story is amazing. I love how the action didn't take a back seat to the romance... And now I've turned into the biggest Zoe/Wash shipper ever. Good job!

Hey, this story needs more love. I quite enjoy the characterization of Wash in this; it's so... Wash... that it makes me laugh even when it isn't funny. Can't wait to see what happens in upcoming chapters!
| Mandolin chapter 5 . 6/3/2011
I could have sworn I reviewed this when I first read it years ago, and was horrified to find out I didn't.
I'm not going to be able to do this story justice in the time frame I have to write this before I have to leave, so let me just say this - this story has personally taken over any headcanon I might have had for how Zoe warmed up to Wash. I don't care if Joss ever gets around to addressing that in the comics, I really don't think he can top this.
| Dbear chapter 5 . 5/7/2011
I know this was written a while ago, but I just stumbled on it.
I have to give this two thumbs up, it was funny, romantic and had good action parts also. You captured the characters, especially Zoe and Wash perfect.
I especially liked how you wrote Wash, to many authors in my opinion write him as either weak or simply as clown. I always saw him in the show as someone that had a basically cheerful disposition, but who if the events called for it could show a lot of strength and determination.

Just had to write another review to let you know I've re-read this story twice since first finding it several weeks ago. It is so much fun, and so well written. In my mind, it's practically become an actual episode. Another great line that I love, and I wish I could steal it for my fanfic (but I won't) is:
"Something broke loose inside Wash in that moment. He'd kissed plenty of women in his life but for some reason, this time, some vital part of him knew that from now on – for him – there would only be this. This woman, this feeling. Wash didn't simply resign himself to his fate; he welcomed it."

Really, really great story! Terrific dialogue, descriptions and characterizations. I can picture everything as if I were watching an actual filmed episode. So many great lines, including:
"Zoë eyes were wide, and Wash could feel his heart pounding thunderously in his chest. His breath came shallowly as he looked at her. If she was going to kill him, she'd better do it now."
| Nocturnal Rose chapter 5 . 6/26/2009
I loved it! You should write another story about them lol! Seriously!
| Ravenclaw Samurai chapter 5 . 3/11/2009
OMG! I love this! I was looking for some good Zoe/Wash fics and I finally found one! This is exactly what I wanted to help ease my fix for the warrior woman and the funny little man! I loved seeing Wash's perspective of how he felt about Zoey. It was so cute, fun, and I think all the characters were portrayed perfectly. Thanks for the read!

That was absolutely lovely.
I am now officially crushin' on Wash and I think I want to *be* Zoe. You really captured the best part of their characters and put them in a story with a neat little plot to boot. Everything was very easy to visualize and I could see it working as an episode flashback had we been lucky enough to get more than half a season.
"He was so transfixed by the upward curve of her beautiful mouth, he nearly forgot that this was neither the time nor the place to attempt another kiss. But, oh, if he ever had a second chance, he'd be sure to kiss her soundly next time. For another smile like that, he'd kiss her breathless." - my favorite line!
Also loved the part of the balcony and the crack about the catapillar on his lip.
Thanks for this.

I always liked Wash, but you make me *love* him. I think it's great the way he's terrified and facinated by Zoe at the same time.
Beautiful dialogue and characterization (as per usual in your writing).
I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.
