Pairing: Inara Serra/Malcolm Reynolds
Fic Title: Facing It
Genre: One-shot, romance
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.
