Well, here we are. This is an imported community from livejournal that originated waaaaaaay back in October of 2003. Our purpose is to be a home for any kind of Firefly/Serenity fanfic.

After the latest updates on LJ, I've imported us over here because I was worried about us possibly getting TOSed over there.

This is a static copy of everything that was on the LJ comm as of April 2017, but I would love if it became a fully functional DW community in its own right.

So please feel free to join and post your Firefly fic. Any ratings, any pairings, it's all welcome here!

Posting rules are on the profile page, and more information about tagging your fic is in the other sticky post.

Shiny!

As promised, here are the COMPLETE rules for how to tag your fic!

Are thoughts of Halloween creeping up on you? It means Classic Recs is coming too!

A month from now at midnight GMT on October 28 (6 PM EST in the U.S. on Oct 27) we’ll be holding our 11th annual Halloween celebration through all the time zones until midnight November 1. This means five days for you to bring your all-time favorite recs of fics, vids, graphics, anything and everything fandom has produced in all the Whedon fandoms! All time periods before 2017 are eligible for posting and, as always, crossover content is A-OK, so get those lists ready!

We also want to alert anyone already familiar with us that following the movement of many people to Dreamwidth, either primarily or exclusively, we are encouraging posts to the [community profile] buffyversetop5 account here. So we hope to see names old and new here soon! Let us know if you have any questions.

In light of recent changes around LJ land, we will soon be importing this community to DreamWidth as a backup. I didn't want to risk over a decade of Firefly-themed fic posts being lost if the worst happens.

For the curious, firefly-fanfic.dreamwidth.org is our eventual destination (alas, our exact name was already taken over there).

If anyone does not wish their posts to get imported to DW, you will need to go in and delete them. Eiither do so here on LJ beforehand or on DW afterwards using the OpenID identity account that corresponds to the post in question. Anyone who wants to delete their posts is welcome to, though I hope most people won't because it'd be sad to lose any fic.

The import should happen within the next few days, though I can't give an exact date since it depends on the DW import queue.

Once the imported archive is live on DW, it will be a static copy of things over here as they are now. The only way to update with any new LJ posts is to do a re-import. We don't get nearly as much traffic around here as we used to, so I don't see that being necessary for a while. Though obviously it's a fully working DW community, so people could join it and begin using it over there, and I welcome anyone who wishes to do so!

I'll let you guys know when the import is done.

Thanks!

A soft glow illuminated River’s room. She lay awake, staring at the ceiling, singing to herself.

“Two by two, hands of blue,

Watch out, now they’re coming for you.

Stay asleep, in your bed,

Or you will sleep with the dead.”

Again.

And again.

She heard the screams of those pulled from their cots in the middle of the night. How they struggled in vain. The bolt of pain before they died.

A leg bumped her cot.

She jerked, eyes clenching shut.

“River?”

Simon.

She stared as he sat on the edge of her bed. She blinked hard to confirm his corporealism.

But her eyes had betrayed her before.

She reached out to take his hand. It wasn’t blue.

“I heard you singing,” he said, brushing the hair from her face.

“They come out of the black,” she whispered. Anyone could be next.

Simon glanced down at their hands, clasped together.

“I can give you something to sleep,” he said. There was sadness in his tone, but hope, too. Hope that he could help. She felt it flow through his hand, into hers. Comforting.

“Okay,” she said, eyes filling with tears. “Help me sleep.”

“There’s pain,” River said, as if the blood trickling from her shoulder wasn’t her own. She stared at the medical bay door, beyond Simon. Perhaps beyond Serenity.

“I have some Propoxyn.”

Simon glanced up from his neat row of stitches for a sign that she’d heard him. There was none. Her eyes remained distant.

Then, slowly, her hands rose to the height of her shoulder.

He handed her the clamp and curved needle, careful to avoid pulling on the sutures as he did so. She took them. He removed his gloves and opened the nearest drawer.

It wasn’t a large bullet wound, but if he ever found the thug responsible, he’d pay Jayne to do what Jayne did best. Quietly. Permanently.

River’s voice interrupted his thoughts.

“He didn’t mean to hurt her.”

Simon retrieved the vial and syringe. He closed the drawer with more force than necessary.

“But he did.”

“Inconsistent barometric pressure and wind speed contributed to inaccurate bullet penetration.” River looked over at him. “He was aiming for you.”

“I know,” Simon said. “I’m still not sure he missed.”

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. Crossposted to [livejournal.com profile] mal_inara
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 also just discovered that Unification Day falls on Mal’s birthday, September 20th. Is there nothing the ‘Verse won’t take from this man? ;) I’m curious to know what you think of the title? The words just came to me, like someone else was speaking them.

Hey, it's great to see people posting Firefly fic! Here's one I just dashed off for a challenge at [livejournal.com profile] womenverse, to do something featuring our favorite characters on a rainy day....

moon party header

Fandom: Firefly
Words: 502
Rating: Very G.

"Have fun!" called out Kaylee as the mule headed down the gangplank, swerving in the mud and throwing up an arc of rainwater in its wake. She punched the button and watched the cargo bay doors close, the torrents of rain pouring over the rim but staying out of the cargo hold.

"Golly, it's really comin' down," she murmured to herself. "Hope that canopy I rigged up keeps 'em dry, least 'til they can make it to town." She whistled happily as she climbed the stairs. It was kinda nice to see a rainstorm--spending so much time in The Black, you got to missing real weather. As she crossed into the bunk way, she spotted Zoe headed out of the bridge. "All shipshape, Cap'n?" she sang out teasingly. Zoe raised her hands like surrender. "Only the first mate here," she said, smiling. "Let's hope we got no need for any leadership while we wait for them all to get done. They get off okay?" she added, nodding toward the hold.

"Sure," Kaylee shrugged. "Not gonna stay dry though. It's really coming down out there," she repeated, as they passed together into the lounge. They both looked up at the ceiling windows, at the grey light and the water washing down. "Better them than us," said Zoe lightly.

"Yeah, no one here but us gals for a couple hours." Kaylee's eyes lit up. "I know! Let's have a Moon Party!"

"Moon Party, that sounds lovely!" Inara came into the dining room and headed for the kitchen. "Is that a tradition from your home world?"

"Moon Party, that is irrational during the daylight hours," intoned River, as she popped her head up over the back of the sofa.

Kaylee let out a squeak of surprise, but recovered quickly. "Well, it's not to do with the nighttime moon, more like, well, you know, women together and all." She looked at the others. "Yeah, it's a home thing, where the women would take a day, a rainy day, just to be together, away from the men, and get a holiday from cooking and cleaning and taking care of babies. They gather, and eat, and pamper themselves, and eat some more, and drink. Not even quilting or sewing or nothing, since that's too much like work." She looked pensive. "I was never partial to it; d'rather be out with the menfolk, working on machines and such." Her brightness dimmed a bit. "But now, I'm sorry I didn't do more of it."

Inara drifted out of the kitchen and set a tray on the table--a tray with teacups, teapot, and a plate of biscuits. "Come, sit," she invited, "We'll have our very own Moon Party; here are some treats, and we'll follow this up with facials and nail-painting."

"Yay!" Kaylee plopped at the table and reached for a biscuit, as Zoe shrugged and took a seat, and River slipped over the back of the sofa to join them. As the rain lashed the outside of Serenity, the inside was filled with their laughter.
