Firefly Fic: Possibilities

Title: Possibilities
Author: alianora
Rating: PG
Summery: Ten possibilities for the crew of Serenity.

1. Companions are lovely, talented people who are expected to be able to entertain in a variety of ways.

Inara is a shining example. She plays cards well, she is an lovely dancer, and she excels at massage.

However, there is one thing she cannot do.

Inara can not sing.

At the Academy, after intensive remedial lessons designed to help her achieve her full potential and lull clients to sleep if so desired, they gave up. They gave her a dulcimer, and told her never to sing in public.

2. Kaylee thought she was pregnant once.

It wasn't Jayne's. There was no chance it was Jayne's. But he took her to the clinic, and stayed with her while she waited to find out, and he didn't tell the Captain.

3. Mal heard Inara sing once.

He told her it sounded nice. Like something his momma would sing.

4. Simon wishes his room on Serenity was just a little bigger.

He knows the others would probably tease him for doing yoga in the middle of the cargo bay.

5. Wash won Zoe over the first time he flew Serenity through a firefight without flinching.

They got through, Mal and Zoe breathing hard, and Wash turned and grinned, the intense focus of the moment before gone.

The smile lit up his face, and she was mesmerized.

Even though the next thing out of his mouth was an invitation to go outside in the mud and dig out the landing gear.

6. Jayne's got a family.

Not just Ma and Pa and Mattie. The whole crew knows about them.

No, he's got a wife. He's even got a couple of kids.

He doesn't talk about them much, because he misses them.

He sends them a letter at every stop, and tries to slip at least a little money in.

7. Book grew his hair out while he was at the abbey.

He didn't tell River, but she knew.

The first time he saw it down, it scared him too.

8. Wash has a scar on his lower back that most people haven't seen.

Zoe asked him about it once, and he made up some elaborate story about having to fight alligators and trolls to rescue a princess.

The truth is, Wash wrecked the first ship he ever flew.

He was the only survivor.

9. River tries to tell Simon about what happened to her, but the words get all twisted and wriggle out of her mouth like weasels, and he never understands.

He never stops listening, though, even when she can barely call his name.

10. Serenity is an older model of Firefly, full of dead space and hidey holes.

Mal knows many of them. River knows more. But Kaylee and Wash know them all.



Nice! I liked each little peek into their lives. Makes me want more! :oD
thanks! i liked the idea of writing just a teeny bit of information about the crew.
I love #5. I love Wash to iddle bitty pieces, and that's beautiful.
aww. thank you!
Hee! Your banner fits this fic so perfectly!

I love it. I ADORE IT. Massively.

#8 just kills me! And so much love for #2, obviously! And Mal loving Inara's awful singing! *HEART*

And the bit with Books HAIR! GAH!
*beams* *cuddles you* the banner fits PERFECTlY, all because you are AWESOME.

and thank you. :)
This was wonderful! I think my favorite was Mal telling Inara he liked her singing. :) Great job!
Thank you! It struck me as something Mal would really like about her, something that ISNT perfect.
Oh, ah, this is all so very nice. Actually, I mean touching. You touched something deep in all of them, and so, touched me as well. Wonderful. Thank you.
what a lovely comment! Im so glad you enjoyed. :)
Was that part about Kaylee & Wash knowing all the hidey holes meant to be porny? Cause I totally ended that thinking, OMG! The maybe-baby was WASH'S!!!

And the part about Simon always listening was beautiful and perfect and makes me want a big brother.

And Wash crashing his first ship and the story he made up (which was oh so perfectly HIM) was excellent.

The whole thing actually makes me want to read Wash fic... and I've never done that before...
LMAO! no, it wasnt meant to be porny, but hey! porn is always good, so please go on reading it that way. i meant that Mal loves Serenity, but Kaylee and Wash, because of who they are and what they do, know her even better.

And you should read Wash fic. Its awesomeness.
ooh. I loved these snippets of their lives, and especially ones with Wash. We never did get a chance to really go into his background. :(
i know. I wouldve loved to have known more about him. :( Thanks for reading!
This is a really insightful look at each of the Serenity crew members. Two was really touching, especially in light of the idea of Jayne missing his family (Kaylee's always been my favorite).

And oh, Simon always listens to River. :) And Wash's scar. It's part of my personal Firefly canon that Wash did do some flying during the war, and the reason he has low tolerance for war stories is that he's the only one who survived his last mission, but he doesn't talk about it. Wash has this core of strength that I really wish we saw more of.

Thanks for sharing!
thank you! What a lovely comment. I wanted to give just a brief glimpse at everybody without delving into motivations and actions. thank you for reading!
Ohhhh this was so beautiful. I loved it :D Particularly love #6 and 8. Gave me goosebumps. :)

Also? Mal liking Inara's singing is so adorable.
thank you! i love giving goosebumps!

And hee! Yes, Mal can occasionally not be an idiot when it comes to Inara.
#1 made me laugh, and #6 made me sniffly. Thank you! *g*
Yay! I love knowing ive had an effect on people. Thank you for reading!
That's lovely and sad and sweet, all rolled into one lovely fic. :)
thank you. :)
#8 is intense.
thanks! i like the idea that there is much more to Wash than we ever saw.
