Momentum Chapter Three
Saturday, May 12, 2007

Long-awaited continuation of a (still) unfinished tale. Wash centric. Read the first two chapters here: and here:


"Ain't that a pretty bit to know." Mal grumbled. "Ya figure Ol' Carrion's playin' both sides?" He raised an eyebrow in Zoe's direction.

She nodded slightly. "Seems it could be so, sir. Can't see as he'd gain all that much. Maybe just playin' us for fools."

"Seems we could turn that count about." Jayne put in raising his weapon suggestively.

Wash resignedly hung his head. "I'll leave it to you guys to do the scheming." He tried, but couldn’t keep the whine from his words.

"Don't whinge, Wash." Mal gave one of his most brilliant smiles. "'Thout you we'da never known the 'Liance was even there." He patted Wash on the shoulder in a show of camaraderie. Not gently.

"So what's the plan, Mal?" Jayne peeked back over the rock. "We go for the job, or turn tail?" It was a legitimate question, but there was defiantly a longing for destruction in the mercenary's stance.

"I say we jump the hwoon dahn." Mal's grin joined Jayne's.

"Twenty Feds?" Zoe was being the voice of reason as usual. "Three against twenty?" She glanced significantly at her wounded husband. Wash grinned impishly.

Jayne scoffed. "That ain't so bad odds. Better if Wash'd hoist a piece." He winked knowingly in Wash's direction. Wash allowed himself a roll of the eyes.

"Hey, I've got an idea," Wash poured in all the sarcasm he could muster, "How 'bout you all go down there in flaming glory and leave me high and dry right here?" He knew that it was on their minds. Zoe immediately put her hand on his arm and gave him a stern look.

"Well, now, that ain't a bad one," Jayne began, but was quelled by Mal's look.

"I've got no notion to a direct assault on them Feds. We don't need that sorta trouble. However, we do need the job. So here's the plan."

Wash noted how quickly his not so humorous suggestion had been glossed over. Then he began to actually pay attention to the captain.

"…and Wash'll trot on back to Serenity and bring her about to cut off the skiff."

"Whoah!" Wash held up his hands. "You want to show the ship to the Fed's?"

"He's right sir," Zoe cut in before Wash could continue, "We could just as easily disable it from the ground. Wash nodded with her, as did Mal.

"Or not at all." The pilot added.

Been a long time since the last part was posted...but it's still an entertaining little tale you got here. Though it would be nice if the next parts were a tad bit longer;)

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.

Momentum Chapter Three
Long-awaited continuation of a (still) unfinished tale. Wash centric. Read the first two chapters here: and here:

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

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

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

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

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.

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.
