GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: TUESDAY, AUGUST 29, 2017
Mal took a deep breath, allowing it out slowly through his nostrils, and now his next words were the honest truth. “Ain’t surprised. No matter how good you are, and I’m not complaining, I’ve seen enough battle wounds, had to help out at the odd amputation on occasion. And I don’t have to be a doc myself to tell his leg ain’t quite the colour it should be, even taking into account his usual pasty complexion. What you did … didn’t work, did it?” [Maya. Post-BDM. Simon has no choice, and Luke comes around.]

The leader whipped out his gun and aimed toward Reilly. “Where’s my men?” He snapped. - - - Reilly looked around him. “Swallowed by darkness?” he offered. - - - “Gettin’ smart, huh?” The leader cocked the hammer on his weapon. “Well, I still got you now, don’t I?” - - - “Only two problems”.

GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, JUNE 11, 2017

GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, JUNE 11, 2017
His head still ached from the rutting probe but after the men had satisfied themselves that his story was true a thousand questions peppered the air like machine gun fire.

“His name’s Jayne?” “What’s wrong with that?” the ex-mercenary demanded from the doorway. “Nothing, nothing! I just … I don’t think I’ve ever met a man … anyone else by that name.” “Yeah, he’s a mystery to all of us,” Mal said. “Even his wife.” [Maya. Post-BDM.

GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, APRIL 16, 2017
Jayne had told him a story once, about being on the hunt for someone who owed him something or other. He’d waited for his target for three hours in four inches of slush as the temperature dropped, and had grinned when he’d admitted to Hank that he’d had to break his feet free from the ice when he’d finished. [Maya. Post-BDM. The Fosters show their true colours, Jayne attempts a rescue, and the others may be too late.]

“Gentlemen“, Shepherd McGarrity started, “this won’t-“ . . . . “Shut it, preacher”, the leader snapped, turning his gun toward McGarrity. “Your services ain’t needed...” He raised his weapon. “…yet”. . . . . “Oh, that just won’t do”, Gerrin chided as he cocked his head. “I suggest you apologize to the Shepherd and take your leave before something bad happens to you”. . . . . “Take ‘em!” the leader roared as he whipped his pistol toward Gerrin and fired.

GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2016
She’d seen his memories of his Ma, the Christmases when he was a boy on Shadow, even a faint echo of one before his Pa died, all still there, not diminished by his burning, glowing celebrations of now with Freya. [Maya. Post-BDM. A seasonal one-off - enjoy!]
Monied Individual - Part XVII by JANE0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2016
Jayne hadn’t waited, but planted a foot by the lock. The door was old, the wood solid, but little could stand against a determined Cobb boot with his full weight behind it. It burst open. [Maya. Post-BDM. The search for Hank continues. Read, enjoy, review!]

GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 9   DATE: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2016

GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2016
He slammed the door behind him, making the plates rattle on the sideboard. “It’s okay, girl, I ain't gonna hurt you.” The cook, as tradition dictated, plump and rosy cheeked with her arms covered to the elbows in flour, but with a gypsy voluptuousness, picked up a rolling pin. [Maya. Post-BDM. Kaylee finds the problem with Serenity, and Jayne starts his quest. Read, enjoy, review!]
Monied Individual - Part XV by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2016
“Did we …” “We did.” “Why?” As she raised an eyebrow at him he went on quickly, “I mean, we got a comfy bunk, not that far away. Is there any particular reason we’re in here instead?” “You don’t remember?” He concentrated for a moment, and the activities of a few hours previously burst onto him like a sunbeam. “Oh, right,” he acknowledged happily. [Maya. Post-BDM. A little with each Serenity couple, but something goes bang. Read, enjoy, review!]

Monied Individual - Part XIV by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 0   DATE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2016
This wasn’t how an ex-companion did things. Perhaps she’d been hanging around a certain Firefly captain for too long. He listened at keyholes as if it were a competitive sport. [Maya. Post-BDM. The crew go to the Spring Lights Procession, Mal gives some good news, and Sir Warwick puts in another cameo. Read, enjoy, review!]
Monied Individual - Part XIII by JANE0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 0   DATE: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2016
“It’s a family tradition, Mal.” Eugenia patted his hand. “No matter who marries into us, whatever their name, the moment they say ‘I do’ they become Rostovs. So you are Malcolm Rostov. It has a fine ring to it, don’t you think?” [Maya. Post-BDM. A chapter of Mal and Freya, and a small revelation from Eugenia Rostov. Read, enjoy, review!]
UNFINISHED BUSINESS: 3 "Hell Hath No Fury" by AMDOBELL
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2016

UNFINISHED BUSINESS: 2. "Counting Chickens" by AMDOBELL
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, AUGUST 28, 2016
The fact that her eyes were hard and sharp with intelligence kind of chilled him. Smart women always made him uneasy, it just weren't natural.
Monied Individual - Part XII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, 2016
Hank had to shake his head. In this day and age, when the entire output of every quill, pen and two-fingered monkey thumping on a keyboard was available on the Cortex, this statement of wealth and power was way over the top. He loved the feel of paper himself, turning the pages to get to the next twist, scanning the print to try and guess the next turn, but even his collection wouldn’t fill more than a shelf here. [Maya. Post-BDM. Hank thinks about Zoe, Zoe thinks about Hank, while Freya and Mal have lunch. Read, enjoy, review!]
Monied Individual - Part XI by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2016
Freya felt flustered, as if her world had been turned upside down, black was white, and Jayne was the President of the Alliance. [Maya. Post-BDM. Mal and Freya go to church, Hank doesn't go ice-skating, and maybe it's hinting at the calm before the storm. An extra long chapter to make up for the delay - enjoy!]
Monied Individual - Part X by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: TUESDAY, JULY 26, 2016
He’d never had much to do with horses, having always been more interested in things that flew rather than things that trotted, but he had to admit that, close up, they were quite interesting. With quite a powerful odour that wasn’t unpleasant – in fact it reminded him a little of Jayne after he’d been working out, but he decided, wisely, not to mention that fact to the big man. [Maya. Post-BDM. Mal and Badger have a chat, Alex extends an invitation, and Hank decides to play protector. A longer chapter to make up for the delay!]

GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 9   DATE: TUESDAY, JULY 5, 2016
Both ships were close enough to be clearly seen in the pilot’s window. “Might be a good time to turn”, Reilly commented nervously.

Inara stood up gracefully, despite her pregnancy. “You’re making plans, Mal. And we all know how they usually turn out.” She raised an eyebrow at him, cocked her sleek head, and swept out of the kitchen. [Maya. Post-BDM. A little family time. Read, enjoy, please review!]
Monied Individual -Part VIII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 2016
“Who’s Winston Downey?” Mal asked, moving enough to look over her shoulder and reading the name of the owner. [Maya. Post-BDM. And post-party. Find out who Winston Downey is, and why he might be helping the Fosters. Read, enjoy, and please review!]
Monied Individual - Part VII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 0   DATE: MONDAY, MAY 30, 2016
Kaylee had warned him it might take a long time, and Jayne was getting bored. There’d been nothing of interest in any of the drawers, and while he’d refrained from carving his initials into the desk he was down to cleaning his nails with Binky and fantasising about what he and River might get up to when he got back. He was considering the red ribbon when there was a faint beep, and Jayne was on his knees in front of the safe. [Maya. Post-BDM. Conversations at the party, while Jayne has other priorities. Enjoy!]
Monied Individual - Part VI by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 9   DATE: SUNDAY, MAY 1, 2016
“This is one of those dreams, ain’t it? Where Jayne ends up riding an elephant and singing in Latin.” He looked at his crew again, all of whom were, at least metaphorically, drawing back from him. “Okay, so you don’t have those. Maybe I am going crazy after all.” [Maya. Post-BDM. The Fosters are keeping a lot of things up their sleeves, and Mal is determined to find out what.]

Monied Individual - Part V by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, APRIL 3, 2016
“Well, let’s see. Hank and Kaylee are off seeing if they can get that generator back to strength, and Zoe’s watching out for ‘em. I ain’t letting Simon or River in the same room as Badger if I can help it, and as much fun as it could be seeing Inara trying to buckle on a gunbelt around that pregnancy of hers, it ain’t gonna happen. That leaves Sam, and I ain’t even gonna try and warp his sensibilities by suggesting he wear one.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Badger holds a tea party, Hank works for his living, and the results are in. Enjoy!]
Monied Individual - Part IV by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2016
“Pleased to meet you,” Hank said, having to stop himself from wiping his hand down his pants. The touch of the other man’s hand had been like old paper, dry and brittle. It reminded him of one of the vids he’d watched recently, about a mummified corpse coming back to life. Except that was ridiculous. [Maya. Post-BDM. It's time to meet the enem- sorry, family.]
Tales From the Nordic Troll - #8: Business as Usual (part 5) by MIKEBROOME
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 9   DATE: WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 2016
Bullets bounced off the hood and sides of the truck as Gerrin sped toward the far end of the building. Wilkins, perched on her stomach in the bed, maneuvered a small 10-liter plastic barrel with a fuse in the end toward the lowered cargo gate in back of the bed. Pulling out a lighter, she lit the fuse as Gerrin, firing from the driver’s seat, suddenly swerved away from the building.
Monied Individual - Part III by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING:    DATE: SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 2016
“You two really need to get a room.” Simon’s voice drifted through from the rear of the cargo bay. “We had one,” Mal growled. “And you shouldn’t be listening in to private conversations.” “Why not?” the doctor asked, walking towards them. “It seems to be the major preoccupation of this crew. When we’re not actually doing crime, of course.” [Maya. Post-BDM. The crew get their first sight of the Triskelion mansion, and Simon stirs the pot.]
Monied Individual - Part II by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2016
“I don’t know what you all have against me being rich. I’d share, you know that. But you seem determined to keep me poor!” He stormed out, the door crashing closed behind him. [Maya. Post-BDM. The crew learn more about Hank's good fortune, and try to come to grips with the Triskelion family tree.]

There’s no reason to keep it, damaged as it is. Save one. Doesn’t matter that it’s finer than any other cup on the ship, even with the crack. Doesn’t matter that it would never hold liquid again without some of it seeping through. Burning your fingers. Was only one reason he still has the cup.

She let out a breath, saying nothing for a long moment before she raised her eyes again. “There are some things I want you to know,” she said softly. “Things I want you to understand.” Much as he wished he could ignore it, he could see it was important to her that he know whatever it was she wanted to tell him. He knew he wouldn't have let himself see it in the past, but that weren't where they were anymore, or at least, not where they wanted to be, either of them. Their relationship had changed, was changing, and he weren’t so stupid he didn’t recognize that. He didn't know that he wanted to know it, much less understand it, but she was reluctant enough to talk about any aspect of her life as it was; could be he might ought not stop her when she wanted to.

Jacko slowly withdrew his hand from the box, producing a cigar, his eyes never leaving Gerrin’s. Placing the cigar in his mouth, he reached down and picked up a small, gaudy-looking lighter, which he also made a show of displaying for his unwelcome visitors. Producing a flame under the cigar, he puffed several times. Finally satisfied, Jacko leaned back in his chair and remarked to Gerrin “You don’t take instructions well, do you?”

Hank’s parents had died when he was young, and his grandmother had brought him up.

A new story for your delectation and delight. Persephone, Badger and lawyers ... what could possibly go wrong?]
