It's May but I'm feeling so Christmassy now! Beautifully written. River's interruption and then her schedule had me laughing out loud. I liked Jayne's toast to Wash. The anticipation throughout with Mal and Inara... Oh myyyyy. Gorgeous. Everything EB said. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story.

Meant to say, "Thank you Gillian and Charlie" in my review just below. Great collaboration!

Oops, correction to my review below...last line should read "Thanks for writing it, Gillian and Charlie."

Read this again last night for the I-don't-know-how-many-th time, and realized it belonged on my favorites list. So many things about this story to like. The anticipation, as they go shopping; the elderly woman who becomes Mal's co-conspirator and her "right to pry"; the sleigh ride (perfect romance); the fussing with the scarf presented from both POVs; the shocking splat of the snowball and Simon's tongue-tied apologies, and of course his towel; Zoe's knowing teasing and all the backstory made evident in her interactions with Mal; their inability to keep their hands off each other and yet their ability to contain it for just long enough, because they love their family; the build-up of anticipation to nearly unbearable levels; the acknowledgements and homage paid to Wash and Book; and of course the consummation. Followed by misunderstanding, because of course they're Mal and Inara. And yet better things prevail. This is a classic Mal/Inara romance, and yet it encompasses so much more. I enjoy it for how well it is crafted, as well as its content. Thanks again for writing it, Charlie.

THIS. WAS. EPIC! Is this the end? If it is then I demand a sequel! Please?

I just wanted to read this again (you make me read your stories like, more than once, I hope you appreciate that ;) because it's Christmas eve (by a minute) and it's just so darn cute and beautiful.
Actually mainly because I was feeling Firefly-y and Festive and decided to find some nice xmas stories ('sides yours). Initially found a nice one, then went looking for more and ended up severely diminishing my Xmas spirit with creepy stories including Mal/Simon slash and one where Inara and Simon have sex and Mal and Kaylee suddenly and inexplicably find long lost deep feelings for each other and bluhhhhg and I needed something to cheer me up :)

Yay! Oh, I like this. Again, kind of corny and improbable situations, but...it works! Because it's so sweet and well-written, but doesn't ignore or belittle the big issues behind everything. The interactions with all the other characters really make it work, I think. Love :)

Loving this story! Had a good chuckle over the cocoa conversation - very well written.

I've been reading fan fiction for about a year now (mostly Anime/Manga based) and it took my wife turning on Serenity on the TV to get me to look this way. I'm so glad I did!
I hated the way the movie was it, no more to come and I wanted to see how the relationship between Mel & Inara would turn out. This story is so perfect, I couldn't have asked for better and the Christmas tie-in... beyond perfect. Looking forward to more.

This is really great. I love how its about Mal and Inara and their budding relationship but also has their friendships with all the other crew as well. When i read your stories i can hear the characters saying toses things in my head. I really enjoy your stories and this one did not disapoint, so thankyou for writing them!

Love, love, love this story! One of my all-time favourites. Please keep writing more like this! Romanitc and sexy and warm. Just lovely.

INCREDIBLE! I love this story it's so good. You're really good a description. Every emotion, every feeling the went through, wow. I don't think I've ever read a Mal/Inara story this good before.
I also loved River as the schedular in the previous two chapters, now that was hilarious. I also enjoyed the old lady in (i think it was ch 1 or 2) and the man who asked them about kids. That was a good add in.
I hope this isn't the end. I hope you have more for this story. It would be a shame to end it now because I really love this story. It's incredibly amazingly awesome. :D
