BLUE SUN ROOM FAN FICTION - GENERAL

Momentum
Tuesday, May 16, 2006

This is a little Wash-centric fic. I haven't yet decided whether it is before, durring or after the series. But, since it is Wash-y, it is obviously not post BDM. Anyhow, I do have most of a second chapter already written, so this will not die as a one-shot like so many of my other fics. Reviews are most appreciated.


CATEGORY: FICTION    TIMES READ: 1008    RATING: 9    SERIES: FIREFLY

"Ow!" Wash yelped as he stubbed his toe on yet another rock.

"Oh, quit yer bellyaching," Mal called back from up the trail, "It ain't that hard."

Jayne came up behind Wash, dancing down the hill like a goat. "All ya need t'do is keep momentum. Y'know, the faster you move, the less likely it is that you'll trip. Dong ma?"

"No!" Wash said indignantly. "That doesn’t even make sense. Faster is just more dan-ger-ous." He enunciated each syllable of the last word to make sure his point was clear.

Jayne shook his head. "No, cuz if you have the momentum, yer feet keep movin', y'see. Then when one gets tripped up, the other keeps right on goin' an' ya don't fall." He nodded proudly.

"I reckon that's how you do everythin', Jayne. With a great deal o' momentum." Zoe said. "It actually does make some sense."

"Damn right it does. I figured it out." He grinned crookedly and shoved Wash to make him walk again.

Wash grumbled some more, but had to admit (only in his own head, of course) that Jayne was right about the momentum thing. But he grumbled to himself. He grumbled about why he had agreed to come to this desolate rock in the first place.

"I was meant to fly, y'know." He called to the other three who were now quite a ways ahead. "This walking stuff is not my thing."

"Jist try'n keep up. We'll be there soonly." Mal said.

"Yeah. Sure." Wash kicked fiercely at a stone in his path but only ended up stubbing his toe again. He cursed quietly in Chinese as he plodded the rest of the way up the slope.

The world was Brieses; the job: an Alliance cache left over from the war. The planet was bleak. Very little vegetation grew. The sun beat fiercely upon hills and their jumble of rocks and anything trying to move across them. They had walked because the rocks were not navigable for the mule and it was too risky to bring Serenity for an air lift. So the four of them were to carry back whatever it was they were sent to get.

Mal wasn’t lying when he said they were almost to their destination. Wash finally topped the last rise to see a little hollow between two tallish hills. The others were already halfway down the side toward the little town nestled in the valley. It was because of his superior vantage point that Wash saw the danger when they did not.

Memories of Snow
I never state the name, but it's an easy guess. It came to me after watching The Message. He talks about the dreams he had of his parents.

Long-awaited continuation of a (still) unfinished tale. Wash centric. Read the first two chapters here: http://www.fireflyfans.net/bluesun.aspx?bid=10333 and here: http://www.fireflyfans.net/bluesun.aspx?bid=10354

Artist
A really short ficlet. Jayne's POV. (I'm writing again! Actually, I've just typed up some things I wrote during class last semester. I've a few more at http://www.fanfiction.net/u/652052/)

Betrayal
Mal's thoughts at Serenity Valley. Who's he most angry at, the Alliance or the Independents?

Smell
Inara reflects on the smell of Mal's browncoat. Very short, possibly will be continued.

Rocket
Wash-sadness. Zoe POV. I can't let the deathfic go.

Stranger
Watched the BDM. Got ideas. Wrote for the first time in a god bit. Mal, River, during the BDM.

Trip Wire
I watched the BDM today. This is a scene from it. Zoe's pov, dialogue from the script.

Stream
Yay! I wrote again. First in a long time. I think I wrote this from Kaylee's perspective, at least in Kaylee vernacular, but I'm not really sure why. I know it's short and prolly not very Kaylee, but I wrote. I also don't really know what it's about. Comment as you like.

The Chair (round 2)
Conpanion piece to my last post. Rive stream of consciousness. More post BDM Wash missing.
