In hindsight, it makes sense that River and Jayne getting hitched - and YoSaffBridge getting offed - would skew the 'Verse timeline quite a bit. No YoSaffBridge running around the 'Verse the potential to squeal about Serenity's dealings or sucker the crew into stealing a rare Earth-That-Was raid on St. Lucy's for access to an imaging scanner to study the damage to River's brain or an encounter with the Hands of escalation to having a Parliamentary Operative involved in hunting Serenity down.

Wouldn't have minded seeing how things changed for other events like "War Stories" or "Objects in Space" (since Early seemed to find River and Simon independently to the efforts of the Academy or Alliance Parliament), but still awesome none the less ;)

River: “...He doesn’t love me, not yet, but I have full confidence that given the proper amount of time and numerous copulations, Jayne will realize he simply cannot do without me.”

Jayne rolled his eyes. “Yeah, well if last night and this morning are any clue of what my life with crazy’s gonna be like, I can tell you right now, she ain’t goin’ nowhere.”

ROTFLMAO - "numerous copulations!"

The requirement for bonding of River was a clever idea, it solves the key question of how exactly River could possibly be used in any serious way by the Alliance.

Plus Jayne's comment after River kills Saffron was so right for Jayne.

I loved the story.

Yay! A lovely story so far, I hope Jayne falls in love soon, or at least realizes that he has loved her all along...but then, I love mush.

Please don't tell me it's the end of the story because there obviously need to be more stories. I WANT to be around when Jayne finally realizes that he loves River and there's still Simon and Kaylee to contend with.

All in all, good job.

Nice work, elaine. Short and sweet. I really liked what you did with River's character, and how you explained her sudden lucidity. And Jayne is just too sweet for words, while retaining that coarseness that is just him. Great job!
