Challenge 77: Our Mrs. Cobb by Amber

Fandom Category: Firefly
Pairing: River/Jayne
Fic Title: Our Mrs. Cobb
Author: Amber
Link: http://green-amberjade.livejournal.com/98505.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance, Humor
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: This delightful story just *nails* River and Jayne, and if you've never thought to yourself, "River and Jayne = Perfect," this fic will change your mind. Starts from "Our Mrs. Reynolds" and tracks the rest of the show through the film. Premise: what if Mal wasn't the only one who woke up with a hangover and a wife?

Sample dialogue to convince you further:

"She can knit? Cook? Fabricate fantastic bedtime stories about boy wizards? Brush her hair? Play jacks?" River numbered the items off on her fingers.

Jayne perked up. Perhaps he might keep her after all. "You can do all that?"

"She can play Jacks," River offered sheepishly.

Why This Must Be Read: This author has such a wonderful grasp of these two characters, and I loved reading both Rukia and Ichigo's point of views. Following them through three distinct points in the series these pieces really capture these two people and gives both Ichigo and Rukia such emotional depth; their interactions, banter, and the way they relate to one other is just pitch perfect, making this series a must read for any fan of this pairing.
