FF BDH

Three Mal/Zoe (or Mal,Zoe) Firefly Recs

Fandom Category: Firefly
Pairing: Mal,Zoe (whut? yes, Mal,Zoe) Inara makes an appearance.
Fic Title: The Place Where
Author: musesfool
Link: HERE
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Angst/Friendship
WIP?: One-shot

Why This Must Be Read: Post-BDM dealing with the loss of Wash. Speaks greatly to the deep bond of love, loyalty and friendship that Zoe and Mal share and how it's expressed in unconventional ways which may lead some to misunderstand the meaning of things. This is brilliantly in character and spot-on with colloquialisms. Also, makes the clear distinction between the "," and the "/" between names.

Fandom Category: Firefly 
Pairing: Jayne/Kaylee 
Fic Title: Tinkerin' 
Author: MercsGoodGirl 
Link: http://mercsgoodgirl.livejournal.com/88191.html#cutid1
Rating/Warning(s): R for sexual situations, and not workplace friendly.
Genre: Romance
WIP?: Hell Yes!

Why This Must Be Read: The frustration level that Jayne experiences in this fic is one of the best-written bits of comedy I've seen in a very long time. Very palpable and hilarious. But the payoff ending is just waayy hot!. She also has one of if not the best Kaylee voices I've ever read, and her Jayne is very authentic, fun, and true. It's a great read!

Rating/Warnings: R for adult language and sexual situations. Again, Not workplace friendly.

Why This Must Be Read: If misunderstanding ever had a hotter consequence, I'll never find it. Everyone's voice in this is spot on, and the fact that the ending is not a dead giveaway just makes it plain cool. So good I saved it on a USB.

Two Jaylee recs

Jaylee (Jayne/Kaylee) is, by far, my most favourite pairing in Firefly and there's so many great stories that focus on them. Here are my first two recs...

Fandom Category: Firefly
Pairing: Jayne/Kaylee
Fic Title: The Freckle saga
Author: matchlightfire
Link: The organisational post is here
Rating/Warning(s): PG right through to R
Genre: Romance
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read:
What happens when Jayne notices 'the distracting little spots of his doom' (freckles) which grace Kaylee's body? This wonderful twelve part story tells us and does it well. The author traces the ups and downs of Kaylee and Jayne's relationship with a great mixture of humour, fluff and angst. The other members of the crew are there too, and they are perfectly in character. River as Kaylee's partner in crime is a particular joy. Check it out and have fun...

Two more Jaylee recs

Fandom Category: Firefly
Pairing: Jayne/Kaylee
Fic Title: The end of all things
Author: rinalin
Link: The story
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Angst
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read:
Reading this is like being punched in the stomach and left breathless. Post the BDM this story does not have a happy ending. The crew that survived are leaving the ship one by one as the darkness creeps through it. The only ones left in the end are Mal, Kaylee and Jayne and Jayne can't stand it...

Jayne and Kaylee's relationship in this is bitter-sweet and beautiful, but not enough to counteract the darkness and despair generated by their Captain. This isn't a happy story, but it's moving and gets better every time I read it.
