BLUE SUN ROOM FAN FICTION - GENERAL
Shindig is one of my favorite episodes, though I do like them all. So much happens in Shindig for each of the characters even though it’s largely a Mal/Inara centric episode. I decided to fill in some plot gaps to that episode, but also elaborate on each of the characters’ thoughts.

Wash had a little bit of money saved up. Not a lot, but when he heard Zoe say she would want a slinky dress (and when he asked the captain for money and got none) he knew exactly what he wanted to do with that money.
He waited until they got back to the ship after running errands then asked her, “Do you want to burn up some more of that shore leave?”
She gave a radiant smile and asked, “Where are we going?”
He takes her back to the shopping district, though as soon as they enter, he playfully blindfolds her with his hands. She laughs and he jokes about their destination without revealing a thing about it. It proceeds in this way until he finally removes his hands and she sees she’s in a fashion boutique. Dresses, they are the prettiest gowns Zoe had ever seen.
She looks to her husband with a questioning glance and he replies, “You said you wanted a slinky dress.”
She laughs for a moment before she looks for a dress. It doesn’t take her long to do so; there seems to be this one dress that is drawing her in.
She points it out to her husband and smiles, “Let me go try it on.”
“And make me wait out here,” he says quizzically, “You’re such a tease.”
She goes to the dressing room, and within a moment returns, slowly making her way to her husband. He’s sure his jaw has fallen to the floor. She looks so beautiful in that cross-patterned white dress. He knows this dress is the one.
But more than anything, he can’t wait to get her out of it back on the ship.
