The Close Shore, At the End, Untenable

Title: The Close Shore, At the End, Untenable
Author: browncoat_2x2
Word Count: 1075
Pairing: Mal/Inara
Summary: Mal has to find a new way to deal with his least favourite day a few weeks after Miranda. Post BDM.
Author’s Note: Written for isha_libran’s prompt: a tipsy truthful Mal who forgets everything the morning after but it didn’t really work its way into the fic at all I’m afraid. But I’m quite happy with what did come, so I’m going with it. Maybe some day I’ll try and redo the prompt. Or, you know, you could give me another ;)
I used a bit of a different style on this one, one I’ve used a few times before and was reminded of while reading ‘The Killer Angels’. I like it. I’m curious to know what you all think of the title? The words just came to me, like someone else was speaking them, and they stuck.
I also just discovered that Unification Day falls on Mal’s birthday, September 20th. Is there nothing the ‘Verse won’t take from this man? ;)

Word Count: 4067
Rating: PG
Pairing: Mal/Inara
Summary: Mal checks out the mining settlement on Callas, and he and Inara finally take their walk.
Author's Note: Took a while to wrangle this one. There’s reams of words I wrote that never made it into this, arguments and alternate versions that threatened to derail them, but I think, I hope, it’s the right way now ;) Thanks always to my Hearts of Gold for their advice and hand holding :)

Author's Note: So, here it is, some six years - yes I know, six years - after the last part. In truth, wasn’t sure I was ever going to be able to come back to this fic, but I’ve been bit by the firefly bug (heh, see what I did there) once again, and found the words came pouring out, so here’s another installment, and there’s even another almost fully written to follow in a short while :) Thanks go to my dearest terimaru, who, as always, encouraged me as I worked through writing this. You are the best, darlin’. To those of you who read, thanks for taking the time after all these years. I surely do appreciate it, and I hope you enjoy.

Huh and Wow!

I'm, like, still writing stuff! I know! Crazy, right?

Started working on another part of The Slower Path... the pictures and the words keep coming, so I'm gonna keep writing 'em down.

Feels pretty awesome, even if there's like, maybe a half dozen people out there still reading. But I'm enjoying it, so that's what matters :)


Loved and Lost

Title:Loved and Lost
Written for Round 4 Challenge 3 of big_damn_quests as Zoe
Word Count: 105

Challenge 3
Do you believe in true love? Have you ever felt it?

Believe in it? I lived it. Can’t say for sure I’d still be standing here if it weren’t for it.

I think all love is true, really. Love isn’t false, it’s only people that are. That’s not to say it doesn’t hurt, or there ain’t pain. Love’s the biggest kind of hurt there is. Without love there’s no loss, and we’ve known a lot of loss. Means we’ve known plenty of love, too.

It’s hard, loving and losing. Don’t think there’s anything harder. But that’s part of what makes it all worthwhile, worth fighting for.

Never regretted loving and I ain’t about to start now.

Always Had Faith

Title: Always Had Faith
Written for Round 4 Challenge 2 of big_damn_quests as Zoe
Word Count: 103

Challenge 2
Do you have faith in a higher power that guides your life? Fate, Karma, God, anything?

Faith in a higher power? That was always Mal's thing, the Captain, back in the war.

Back before the surrender.

That day broke him. But before then, oh yeah, he was full of holy piss and vinegar. Kept us going through the worst of it, his faith that we would win, that our cause was just and God would see to it. Almost made you believe too, he was so fervent about it.

Never did put too much stock in the higher powers myself though. Just didn't seem likely, in the face of it all. Mal though; always had faith in the Captain.
