Pairing: River Tam/Mal Reynolds
Fandom #: 8
Special Recs: 31-33
Fic Title: Never Go Back
Special Rec #: 31
Why This Must Be Read: Multi-chapter - mostly River-centric ficlets - which charts the course of a relationship between them. It's not all angst and hard edges; it's not all fluff and cotton candy. It is a fairly realistic roller coaster of a relationship being built - between the reasons they shouldn't be together, the people who all have opinions, and the plain old dangers of life.
Fic Title: dTigeas a damhsa dom
Special Rec #: 32
Why This Must Be Read: This one-shot should be read because it is A Moment. I used capital letters because I think each time River takes back a piece of herself, it should be celebrated. Here, Mal helps her remember how to dance. Just a lovely moment, blending angst, hope, and trust all in one.
Fic Title: I Am Not An Illusion
Special Rec #: 33
Why This Must Be Read: This is River's stream of consciousness during the movie Serenity. She does what she does, fights, changes, stands her ground...all for him. If you have not seen the movie, you need to do that before reading this fic...you will be so lost otherwise.
