sleeptime. dancing dancing pretty lights Inara says suppose to go to bed but daddy can't sleep at night. twirling  Kaylee, come with me we can dance in our sleep while the little mice creep around  Serenity.

_____________________

The Crew. jumble jumble its all a mess / got to fix the influx capacitator afore it busts again/ all their heads reeling every minute of every day / got to get my hands on some more oil or my triggers is gonna start pulling/ so full my  head is leaking / need to find us a new job and fast, crew aint been paid in some time start’n to feel the pinch/ can’t sort out what's mine, what's not / I’m going to do it. I’m going to ask her. oh Xióngmāo niào, I can’t do it. what if she says no/ hardly ever fall these days but when I do it's bad /oh jesu, I miss him so much/ can’t they quiet for a spell? only Inara bothers to hide. Serenity is much to loud tonight.

______________________

Breakdown. Serenity finally cracked her influx capasi-something, so we are on this little moon till Kaylee can fix it. Capn and Zoe are nervous, don’t wanna remind the crew that they caused a ruckus some years back with Jayne. nobody remembers. But Capn don't know that. Inara kept me with her all morning, Laundry Day in the black. just cause we be made of dust don’t mean we gotta be dusty, no. Hiding in my vent until she stops looking. River mouse knows all the crumbs, won't fall for lunch trap, no. squeak squeak - River

________________________

the Rain. I’m counting the space between raindrops outside. the sound is awfully loud after the silence of space. I can almost hear myself think.

__________________________

Repairs up and down and pass the crew laughing flowers, silly faces, chasing chasing, can’t catch River, quick like river. quick like wind. duck down, curl up tight quiet now everyone dashing past, laughing panting, trying to find River River hidden, won’t find soon. Kaylee didn’t need to fix the IC today.

____________________________

Make up their Gorram minds already.

Kaylee has to work, Jayne is just bad news, I can't stay in the bridge all day, go, play, but not too far. River come, River go, River I'm busy right now. Don't do this, don't go there, please, River, just TRY to help, dong ma?

I don't want to sit, I don't want to learn to cook. I can't leave the ship, its dangerous. Please. I'm dangerous. Everybody's busy, but River can't work, no. she's too young, she's too crazy, she just doesn't know how.

I wish that we were back in the black, just me, Serenity, and the endless space of us. two more days, until the engines fixed. I hope we make it. -River.

"Hiding in my vent until she stops looking. River mouse knows all the crumbs, won't fall for lunch trap, no.

squeak squeak"

I think that's my favourite line.

Much as I have to agree with Bytemite about River's mouse analogy being awesome, my favourite part is the first section of this entry into River's diary....it seems to hearken back to the opening of "Objects In Space," what with River mentally trolling the ship and overhearing various things floating through her crewmates' heads.

This was a good snapshot of what River has to put up with, with all the thoughts of the crew swirling around in her already chaotic brainpan. Makes you realise just how sane she is to be able to cope at all. Ali d :~)
