| TC chapter 22 . 11/23/2013
WOW! I can honestly say I never would have expected that to be so good. While the lack of character death does lower the danger a little, there was a great sense of tension; and still a reasonable sense of loss. I love the pairing of Jayne and River; although occasionally it was a little too "romance novel". It's good to have characters grow, but Jayne changed a little too quickly, (although I've no idea how it could have slowed any more without getting tedious). I like how Jayne being Rivers anchor actually EXPLAINED how she focused her psychic abilities and overcome her issues. I do like that Mal's lack of trust in Jayne is explored, though the Mal daddy thing felt a little forced, (though I can see the logic behind it). I honestly expected the keeping of Book and Wash alive to be simple wish-fulfilment but it served the story well. In short this is the first time I've read fan fiction and honestly felt it was of good enough quality to do justice to the source material. I hope you're still writing.

I really, really enjoyed your rendition of the movie! Everyone was in character and the relationship between Jayne and River makes total sense with the changes in the plot. Thanks so much for sharing this!

I like your version of the big damn movie SOOO much more than canon. Loving the story and the characters' relationships with one another. And the fact that none of our beloved characters died!

I have been reading on this series for a few days and I am very impressed. I enjoyed the literary references (I actually just read Beowulf in English and watched Les Mis in Theatre).
I had never before considered the thought of Jayne and River becoming even half as close as they got on "Two Gorram Days." I'm shipping this now (Kaylee Simon is still my OTP though, no power in the 'verse is stopping that).
P.S. YAAAY, Wash and Sheppard aren't dead!

You continue to write with quality. A version of events not near so dark as what saw the screen, yet far from painless. Plausible and touching. A difficult task for any writer.
Damn. This is a good fic.

Your plotting is fantastic. Wonderful blenf of canon and fanon - do glad they all live! Especially lovely Wash.

I absolutely love this chapter. The way you describe River reassembling herself is superb. And very moving.

BEST fanfic EVER! This series is soooo amazing! The way all of the conflicts in the end is extremely satisfying, and I am amazed at how you could maintain and develop the characters' personalities so well. I could totally imagine this series as its own movie/series of episodes. Thank you sooo much for writing the Horseshoe Nail series (I also read Prodigal which was also excellent btw)! I just wish you could come back and write more stories; I would love to see more of Rayne!

*More standing, clapping, and cheering from me.* Yay! Wash isn't harpooned! Thank you so much! And go Javert! He's awesome!
| Vanna chapter 16 . 6/16/2013
Yay! What an excellent chapter! I have been sooo addicted to your stories; I haven't done any work for the past two days and just find myself hooked to read more and more! Very interesting twist with the Operative changing sides and having the crew get a chance to have their say before approaching 's. I was ready to stand up and cheer as the Operative explained how KICK-ASS Simon is to Kaylee. :D

I just loved this story. Thank you for sharing it

Read all four parts of this series and I am impressed. You do a wonderful job of maintaining the world of Firefly will at the same time twisting elements of it to Sam Hill and back. You have a talent, work out some of those comma splices and your work would be a cut diamond. Read all 33 chapters in 3 days and thoroughly enjoyed it (especially the sometimes poetic nonsense River spouted) I've got more than a few favourite lines here. GREAT job.
| Pinocchio's J.C chapter 14 . 3/27/2013
I love this story, and I adore the show/movie that Whedon created, but, knowing that he based the premise on the south after the civil war, I have to say that there's no reality where the south winning the civil war would have been a good outcome. Like it or not, the war was begun and continued because of slavery, and the southerners' supposed right to their slaves. This has been the (hard-won, bitterly argued, but ultimately true) accepted reality concerning the war for almost a while, now. As such, Whedon's premise for the show, that these people were only fighting for their right to live their lives the way they wanted, kind of falls apart - because the way they wanted to live their lives was by taking every aspect of control away from others. I get that this is just a story, and that the Firefly/Serenity universe is only based upon the idea of the south post-Civil War, and isn't a social commentary or anything, but I find it kind of hard to listen to Mal's self-righteous talk, knowing that his character is based upon those southern men who fought a vicious war for the "right" to own their fellow human beings.
