As soon as I saw sledgehammer I knew you were going to have to do the Captain Hammer bit. And I can't blame you, sing-a-long blog was brilliant.
This looks to be an excellent start to another run.
| ScarletFox chapter 22 . 9/22/2008
Wonderful tie in of Dr. Horrible references.
I'm just a bit fuzzy as to why they went and pirated another ship, If you can take a couple moments to explain that next Chapter, it'd be appreciated. Thought your first two stories were excellently done, hope the third lives up to the first two.

"Captain Hammer"? "Seemed horribly familiar"? Very funny. Is the latter a pun? It'd have to be. Entertaining, though. Keep on updating.

How did I not see the Dr. Horrible reference coming? Mal used a hammer TWICE in this chapter. I really should have expected it.
Another great chapter. Can't wait to see where this one's going. I also think I need to get my hands on those comics...
| Robert Falcon chapter 21 . 9/9/2008
I must say, this story is among the best I have ever found on this website.
You have truly captured the feel of the series and movie, and I'm already looking forward to the next 'episode'. No rush, though. Write what you can when you can. I can already see that you'll keep the quality top notch.
Must admit, I didn't figure out who Nemo was until about six lines before the end of Condor's epilogue, but looking back I can see the connections. (Guess I should have paid better attention to him earlier in the story, eh?) And I like what you did with Wash and Book, the way you explained how they continued on in this series. I've always been a big fan of Wash (got his dinosaur speech damn near memorized, with proper intonation and everything), and I'm curious if you'll go into Book's history further.
I can see a great many things you've done well, and I can't think of anything you need to improve on. (I'm trying not to sound too cliche, believe me.) Keep up the excellent work. I look forward to the next one.

This is without a doubt the best story I have ever seen on . The plot is engaging without resorting to cliches or melodrama. The characters actually feel as if they're the same individuals from the show, which is a rare find in fan fiction. The writing is clean-I can count the number of spelling and syntax errors I've seen on one hand (and at least one of those may not have been an error at all).
I've read a lot of stories on here. I've seen brilliant plots ruined by sloppy writing, I've seen great writing with no story to tell, and just about everything in between. This is the first time I can recall seeing art.
I await your next installment with great pleasure.

Man, what a heckuva wrap up to this 'episode'. Love all the intricate plotting going on here.. looks to be exciting!
| RionaEire chapter 21 . 9/1/2008
Still here and reading, glad to see lots of interesting foreshadowing here, indicating the things I can look forward to. Those being the new browncoats' continuing quest to capture River, Book's datapad with info about River on it and I must be stupid but I still don't know who Nemo is. So I'll be shocked no doubt when you show me. A suggestion: since this is very long you might consider making a story entitled Forward 2 or some such so its easier to access each new chapter. You certainly don't have to but its just an idea. I smiled when Inara pointed out Serenity's good fortune because they do have a lot of it in your stories. I was upset a tiny bit when Mal talked about causes, don't know why just a feeling I had, a feeling that made me want to cry but not from sadness or happiness. You know what I like to see, don't need to point it out again. Its nice to see River playing though, being touched in the wits doesn't mean she can't be content, feel safe. Looking forward to more one of my very favorite writers here who has my devoted readership as long as things are how I like them. :)

OMG I had NO idea that's who Nemo was supposed to be until just now! You did a damn fine job of keeping that obfuscated!
But ARGH! How can it be over? I don't want it to be over!
Great story, loved every word of it. Can't wait til the next part!
| Jarvey chapter 21 . 9/1/2008
I liked the nemo surprise, really caught me.
| Dark-Syaoran chapter 21 . 9/1/2008
...Wow. I simply love how you've worked 'Nemo' back into the Firefly story. I seriously didn't even think it was an established character, just an OC. Nothing better than a pleasant surprise.
Though I'm confused on his relationship with Book. He did send a ship to kill Book that one time on Haven. Did he not know he was there? Does Book know Nemo is the one that chased Mal and the crew across the universe?
I love it when questions like these pop up.
Continue the great work.

nice crew interactions in this chapter, looking forward to your next story, thanks for writing.
| Libquedation chapter 21 . 9/1/2008
episode was really good. the very end with nemo and obrin though, that was almost like the operative and the one dude in serenity the movie. o now i think i know who it is. asap
| IzzyTheFinalFanatic chapter 21 . 9/1/2008
"...patient." Ha! The -only- reason patience will be remotely easy now is because you didn't leave off with some GOD-AWFUL cliffhanger.
Most excellent wrap up, m'dear. I must say, I'm thrilled Obrin ended up dead, the backstabbing bastard.
I think I can manage to "patiently" wait to read the next one. Good luck with classes. :)

WOW! Lots of action. Good job on Nemo.
