I love this so much. I think this is the third time I've read the Horseshoe Nails series in their entirety. I may love this better than Firefly... don't get me wrong, Firefly may be the best television ever produced, but your 'verse and its happy ending are sheer perfection. You make a relationship between River and Jayne not only plausible, but inevitable, with plenty of "will they or won't they, dammit?" along the way. Delicious slow burn.
I know the fic is nearly ten years old and you may not read feedback anymore, but I wanted to thank you again.

Sigh. I wish you'd finished this all proper like, but I'll take what I can get and its not an awful stopping point as is. I have absolutely loved this series. It is the best I've found for how Jayne and River make since, especially given their differences in intelligence. Thank you for writing it.

I was on the fence about reading this because it's not marked complete, but I couldn't resist when I finished the previous story, and I'm so glad I did! Great Cobb goodness, even if you never complete this it is a great glimpse into the crew post Miranda...I do wish you would add these to your ao3 account so I could save them to reread over and over ...thank you again for this!

This is just the adorablest series. Great job capturing the characters.

I can't tell you how many times i've come back to this story over the years. I've lost count how many times I have reread this when I wanted something sweet and soothing or a Serenity "fix it"
Thank you so much sharing.

This was lovely. A lovely end for a lovely series. Wish there was more, but all good things must come to an end. I think you have done our favorite series and BDM justice with your 'verse. Well done, fellow Browncoat. Well done indeed.

I really enjoyed your series. Hours of me accomplishing absolutely nothing while being completely engrossed in Firefly adventures.

I simply love this story! I, (as well as past reviewers) seemed to have had the inability to put it down and pretty much read the entire series in one shot. So very worth the lack of sleep to do so! If you ever add to this wonderful collection, perhaps Simon could suddenly find his old accounts unfrozen? I don't think I've come across a similar plot line in my considerable Firefly fanfiction readings and this amazing twist on the BDM seems like it could set it up quite nicely. I certainly hope you continue to write stories in any capacity, you have an amazing gift- thank you for sharing it!

Ohhh that was just so cute - I really liked the Simon / Kaylee ending too! You did a great job of keeping it River / Jayne focused but still exploring all of the other romances as well. A lovely series, definitely going to reread it again! Thanks for writing! :D

Your series was recommended to me by a friend, and I cannot express how pleased I am with this series. It flows so well and already feels like it should be canon. Thank you so much for writing a wonderful series.

What a wonderful happy ending. I liked this a lot. Jayne's family was interesting. I really liked Mattie and I'm glad he's going to be okay. I wanted him to with them in Serenity at first but you're right, he should be independent. I really liked all the relationships you developed; the metaphor with the life roads was touching too. This was a very rich story and I loved reading it. Thank you for sharing.

Is this story over? I know it's been a long time, but seeing as you haven’t marked it as complete, I’m keeping my hopes up.
| Separate Entity chapter 4 . 4/15/2015
I like Mattie.

I spent a WHOLE DAY reading your fic. Love, love, love them. I so ship River and Jayne, and you do them justice.
