New fic: Easy Tickets
Monday, May 22, 2006

Fellow fairflyficophiles …

I’m going to start posting my new story, yay!! It’s a busy work day, so chapter one as soon as I get a chance, probably this afternoon.

Here’s the spiel on it:

Easy Tickets is a sequel to The Fish Job. I’ll review a little, so you don’t need to read The Fish Job first, but it would help.

It’s mostly written already. I aim to post every weekday, so it’ll keep coming... I don’t have so much internet on the weekends; that’ll be spotty.

This is really a Mal/Inara story, though that may not be obvious at times. Buoyed by all the positive feedback on The Fish Job, I’ve let myself get a little more descriptive (wordy?), and I’ve also given my original characters free rein. I hope this doesn’t make anyone’s eyes glaze over! If so, hang in there - the BDH’s are still the main thing.

I meant to go lighter than FJ, but I guess trauma and angst are just my way. *sigh* There will be fun, but I visit dark icky places too, beware!! This is rated PG-13 overall, with a fair amount of R and a little NC17. I’ll try to include warnings but I don’t like to give everything away at the top of each chapter, that can ruin the tension, you know?

Comments comments comments!! I do this cause it’s fun, but the comments come in a very close 2nd!!

Thanks for reading, and thanks for all the feedback on The Fish Job! You browncoats are the best!

And finally - I have to say thanks big time to VERA2529, LEEH, and GUENEVER for beta++. The plusplus being much thought provoking discussion and so many helpful suggestions. This story has gotten way more complicated than I originally planned, and I couldn’t have worked it out without their help!

EDIT: forgot to say - just to set the timing - FJ came after Objects in Space, this follows a month after. So pre-BDM. But this isn't going to stay in cannon, that's too hard to do! So I guess I'm going AU.

Nosadseven - you must be psychic! Too funny!!

Leiasky - I'm not giving any details away. In public. So I sent you a PM. :p

BEB - I'm sensing more doughnuts coming my way, woo-hoo!

Heh, I just finished reading your first chapter, and realized how apropos the closing sentiment from my first comment (here) was!

You know, I logged on today specifically to see if you'd started posting your sequel yet... You can't see me, but I'm doing the happy dance. (Makes it hard to type!)

Looking forward to diving in tonight...

Thanks Danny!!

I just looked at your page - you love FF and hockey tpp?? Sweet! I like the Rangers too, but (unfortunately for me right now) the Bruins are my team.

Hope you enjoy the fic!
