If she could just hang on to this one memory she could win….just this one….

River stood in front of the magnificent tree that stretched all the way to the ceiling, and yearned with every fiber of her eight year old being for Christmas to hurry There were already a few presents wrapped in shiny iridescent paper under it but River knew there had to be more. The ones her parents still marked From: Father Christmas, even though she was far to old and wise to believe THAT anymore. She had tried earlier to enlist Simon’s help in looking for them. He had refused with all the scorn inherent in his newly acquired teenaged years. He had informed her that looking under beds and in closets was greedy and not at all in keeping with the spirit of the holiday..

River clung to the memory. The big brotherly smile on Simon’s face….. the smell of the tree….the stockings hanging from the fireplace mantle…..

She felt the small familiar pressure in the middle of her forehead…the cool sting in her forearm….and the monsters came back….and they took Christmas away.

Ohh, very chilling. Short, but it didn't really need to be longer. I like how you merged, in a few short sentances, the past and the present.

Sometimes a word's meaning depends on where you look from. Mal and Jayne have a discussion

What Did I Ever Do To Deserve This?
I gave this line to some High School students as a story starter and ended up with my own version for Simon.

Touched
Jayne remembers some often given advise from his ma. J/R



Everybody Needs a Hobby
Simon finds something to do in his spare time. This was one of those drabbles that simply will not let ya go until ya give it life and set it free. Sorry if it is a bit terse or disjointed. I might come back later and flesh it out. Thanks for letting me give it wings.

Fire and Fury
This is the companion piece to Cry Havoc. It can stand alone but I feel reading the other first gives things a better flow. This tkaes place at the end of the BDM and might be sort of a spoiler if you have not seen it yet. It is River's POV right after the wall comes down. PLEASE leave feedback. I really want to get better at this

Cry Havoc
After River taps into her Alliance training to save her "family" at the end of Serenity can she just let go?
