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.

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.

Three Mal/Zoe (or Mal,Zoe) Firefly Recs

Fandom Category: Firefly
Pairing: Mal,Zoe (whut? yes, Mal,Zoe) Inara makes an appearance.
Fic Title: The Place Where
Author: musesfool
Link: HERE
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Angst/Friendship
WIP?: One-shot

Why This Must Be Read: Post-BDM dealing with the loss of Wash. Speaks greatly to the deep bond of love, loyalty and friendship that Zoe and Mal share and how it's expressed in unconventional ways which may lead some to misunderstand the meaning of things. This is brilliantly in character and spot-on with colloquialisms. Also, makes the clear distinction between the "," and the "/" between names.
