Author: Jedi Buttercup
Rating: PG-15 for dark themes
Characters: Mal and The Operative
Disclaimer: Whedon's &etc., not mine.
Notes: Slightly AU for the end of the BDM. Title and a few lines of dialogue lifted from the Serenity script. Because some situations are less simple than we see.
Summary: Mal was fed up to the back teeth with folk warped by Alliance ideals dying senseless, wasteful deaths. 1500 words.
( Damage Done )
