help, i'm alive ;;

firefly recs; mal/inara & mal/zoe

Fandom Category: Firefly
Pairing: Inara/Mal
Fic Title: victory crowns the just
Author: biggrstaffbunch

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: introspective, friendship, romance, post BDM
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: His breath catches in his throat. No; that ain't right. She looks just opulent enough to belong here perfectly, in her strange way. He don't have any illusions when it comes to Inara--knows she'll always be a Companion, knows she won't ever be as clear-intentioned and rough-edged as he's like to need. But in times like these, when all he's seeing is the dirty, the dead, the broken--it's good to see something whole.

→ This is atmospheric almost, and simple. Mal, and then Inara sharing the quiet of the aftermath and leaning on each other enough to make it through the night.

Fic Title: For a Moment

Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Drabble
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Her heart aches for him, and not for the first time since the horrific events they'd faced on Miranda, she suddenly wants to tell him everything.

→ So xfirefly9x is one of the people who got me hooked on this show, I think, though it's hard to remember a time without Firefly. This is one of her latest drabbles and a new favorite of mine for the quiet understanding and comfort of it- she's been writing Firefly fic (among others) for years and I'd quite recommend all of her writing. *shoos* Go forth and rummage through her fic tags.

Pairing: Inara/Mal
Fic Title: ask for me in the morning
Author: fireworkfiasco

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: angst/doomed romance(?)
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: this is wrong; they're in the dining room of Serenity, he's intoxicated, she's leaving

→ Because it's so, so them, and so realistic; not all stories end happily. This is one version of that end.

And now, a few Zoe/Mal fics because reasons. ♥

Fandom Category: Firefly
Pairing: Zoe/Mal
Fic Title: Beyond the World
Author: jazzfic
Link: HERE
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Can 'life' be listed as a genre? Because honestly I can't pin down any one genre for this..
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Zoe withdrew her hand and laid it on his shoulder, on the brown coat, the fabric warm, always warm. "You're still wearin' this," she finished.

His eyes were on her; it felt as if they had never left, even in the camp, even when he'd been knocked out, again and again. "You say it as if it mattered."

"It does."

"Then how'd we lose?"

→ Zoe & Mal, after the war but before the series, learning how to live again.

Fandom Category: Firefly
Pairing: Zoe/Mal
Fic Title: He Shall from Time to Time
Author: laurificus

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13?
Genre: Angst, Introspection, Romance, etc. Spoilers through BDM.
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: “You ever gonna have your after, sir?” she asks.

Mal stirs his coffee, left handed because his right’s still throbbing like a bitch, even though he won’t admit it, another injury from another U-Day. “Sometimes you keep going, is all, Zoe. It’s enough, and a damn sight better than stopping.”

→ This is another one of those favorites of mine. Technically I'm more of a Zoe/Mal shipper than anything, and this is a big example of why. There's just something about them that fits perfectly, both in the things they say and those they don't.
