"Facing It" by edenbound (PG)

Fandom Category: Firefly
Pairing: Inara Serra/Malcolm Reynolds
Fic Title: Facing It
Author: edenbound
Link: http://edenbound.livejournal.com/648880.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: One-shot, romance
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: A short-but-sweet little fic is edenbound's apparent specialty, and with good reason. In one short scene, we get a detailed glimpse of life on Serenity post-Serenity and witness a brief but pivotal conversation between Mal and Inara. The characterization is beautifully clear despite the length, and the outcome is just perfect.

Why This Must Be Read: l.m. montgomery! i’d wager that most of us here dig her stuff. this is one of the best blue castle fics i’ve read. the characters are real, still, and it manages to say something that is so perfectly in-character, you’d think the lady herself had written it as an epilogue.
