Title: Prehistoric (Zoe/Wash)
Serenity's first mate regarded the cockpit with slight alarm.
He had seemed so..nonthreatening earlier this week. A little weird, and yes, unlikable, but nonthreatening.
But this was a little beyond weird.
And he just sat there. Grinning at her from underneath that stupid mustache.
And introducing her to over a dozen plastic dinosaurs.
And each had a name. And a different voice.
Yep. Definitely a little beyond weird.
Even if he had a small raptor named Zoe.
Title: Spin Cycle (Simon/Kaylee)
"Its real easy," Kaylee assured him. "You just stuff everything in there, and then turn it on."
Simon looked embarassed. "Thank you for showing me. I've never had to do laundry before."
"You never helped your momma with it?"
Simon raised an eyebrow. "Kaylee, my mother didn't do laundry."
She giggled, "I forgot you was all fancy and servant having!" She watched Simon attempt to fit all of his and River's clothes in the washing machine. "What was it like?" She asked dreamily.
"What was what like?" Simon studied the box of soap flakes in confusion. "How much of this do I add?"
Kaylee helpfully turned the box around for him so he could read the directions on the back.
"Don't worry, though," she said. "Jayne isn't allowed to do any laundry but his own."
"Well, lets just say that washing different colors together AND adding bleach when washing the Captain's and my clothes don't lead to good things."
"Like what?" Simon asked.
Kaylee pointed out the start button, and said, "Well, for one thing, my coveralls covered in white spots, the Captain's favorite shirt being kinda pink, and Jayne having to scrub the cargo bay with a toothbrush."
Simon's eyebrows went up. "The entire cargo bay?"
"Every single inch."
"Did the Captain wear the pink shirt?"
"Nope," Kaylee chirped. "I stole it. And then I tried to save my coveralls. That's why the have the teddy bear on the leg."
"I needed something to sleep in! And it really was the most lovely shade of pink."
"Pink?" Simon looked a little panicked.
"Simon...you didn't put River's red dress in with your white shirts, did you?"
Title: Swimming Lessons (Jayne/River)
"Girl, why are you making a fish face?"
"Not a fish. A girl face."
"Face a girl makes."
"And why the hell would a girl be making THAT face? It looks all manner of weird."
"She is waiting."
"For the boy."
"I ain't a boy, so stop looking at me. I'm a man. I'm alot bigger than a boy."
"Stop looking at me like that, girl."
"Not til boy..sorry..man makes face."
"If I do, will you stop? And go away?"
"Fine. Man is making face."
"That weren't part of the deal!"
"Part of the face."
"Ok, ok. Eyes closed, fish face. Now what?"
"Girl has to go now! Bye!"
"Gorramit, girl! I done told you, I don't kiss on the mouth!"
