“Ow!”

“Stand still.”

“It’s cold!”

“Ain’t my fault.”

“Jayne, enough!”

“Nope, don’t think it is. You know what Mal said – you ain’t walking through the ship like that, not ‘til you’re hosed down.”

“It’s not my fault ...”

“You’re the psychic, ain’t you?”

“I was looking at the magpies ...”

“Moonbrain, there weren’t any magpies.”

“One for sorrow, two for joy ...”

“Sorrow’s right. You shoulda been looking where you were going.”

“I expected my Jayne to look for me.”

“I weren’t the one fell in that puddle o’ ... whatever the hell it was.”

“It had a crust.”

“Not after you’d done with it, splashing about like that.”

“Don’t laugh at me.”

“I’m ... laughing with you.”

“I'm not laughing.”

“No? Then it must be me.”

“I can withdraw marital privileges.”

“Riv, I ain’t gonna come anywhere near you ‘til you smell spring clean again.”

“You think I smell like the spring?”

“When you’re not covered in cao ... but ... yeah.”

“Oh, Jayne.”

“Now, you stand back. I got enough on me when I pulled yah outta there.”

“I would have washed your shirt for you.”

“Nah. No point. And Mal’d never’ve let you put it in one o’ our machines.”

“I would have taken it to the stream. Beaten it with a rock.”

“Easier to toss it.”

“It scared the magpies away.”

“I’m telling you, they weren’t magpies. They were crows.”

“Three for a girl, four for a boy ...”

“Uh ... Riv? What are you doing?”

“I thought it might be easier.”

“But you ain't got no unders on.”

“Jayne doesn’t like seeing his wife like this?”

“Uh ... yeah, a’course but ... I ...”

“No buts. Am I clean, Jayne?”

“Uh ... what?”

“Clean? Here? And here?”

“Riv ...”

“What about ...”

Tah muh duh.”

“Would Jayne like to dry my hair?”

“C’n I brush it?”

“Later.”

“Then I reckon I’ll dry it for yah. Last one back to the shuttle’s a magpie ...”

“Five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret ...”

“Well, I ain’t gonna tell anyone, Riv.”

“River!”

“Yes, captain?”

“Put some gorram clothes on!”

“Yes, sir. Eventually.”

“Damn it. This place gets more like a kindergarten every day ...”

Poor Mal...always the ever-suffering martyr to the cause of common sense!

;D

Amazing work, Jane0904! Definitely takes skill to set, expand and sell a story on dialogue alone...and you have it in spades, my dear! I especially love the slow bleed from Jayne being exasperated at River for what happened before getting lured to the "dark" (i.e. inimate" side of thigns ;)

I don't even want to guess what River fell in! Loved the banter, very in character for all concerned. Ali D :~)

I'm currently reading the story you're writing with angelle so this is the first time I'm reading something that's just your and I really liked it. Funny, in-character and Mal's cameo...couldn't be better!

OTHER FANFICS BY AUTHOR

Monied Individual - Epilogue
"I honestly don’t know if my pilot wants to go around with flowers and curlicues carved into his leg.”
[Maya. Post-BDM. The end of the story, and the beginning of the last ...]


Monied Individual - Part XX
Mal took a deep breath, allowing it out slowly through his nostrils, and now his next words were the honest truth. “Ain’t surprised. No matter how good you are, and I’m not complaining, I’ve seen enough battle wounds, had to help out at the odd amputation on occasion. And I don’t have to be a doc myself to tell his leg ain’t quite the colour it should be, even taking into account his usual pasty complexion. What you did … didn’t work, did it?”
[Maya. Post-BDM. Simon has no choice, and Luke comes around.]


Monied Individual - Part XIX
“His name’s Jayne?”

“What’s wrong with that?” the ex-mercenary demanded from the doorway.

“Nothing, nothing! I just … I don’t think I’ve ever met a man … anyone else by that name.”

“Yeah, he’s a mystery to all of us,” Mal said. “Even his wife.”

[Maya. Post-BDM. Hank's not out of the woods yet, and Mal has a conversation. Enjoy!]


Monied Individual - Part XVIII
Jayne had told him a story once, about being on the hunt for someone who owed him something or other. He’d waited for his target for three hours in four inches of slush as the temperature dropped, and had grinned when he’d admitted to Hank that he’d had to break his feet free from the ice when he’d finished.
[Maya. Post-BDM. The Fosters show their true colours, Jayne attempts a rescue, and the others may be too late.]


Snow at Christmas
She’d seen his memories of his Ma, the Christmases when he was a boy on Shadow, even a faint echo of one before his Pa died, all still there, not diminished by his burning, glowing celebrations of now with Freya.

[Maya. Post-BDM. A seasonal one-off - enjoy!]


Monied Individual - Part XVII
Jayne hadn’t waited, but planted a foot by the lock. The door was old, the wood solid, but little could stand against a determined Cobb boot with his full weight behind it. It burst open.


[Maya. Post-BDM. The search for Hank continues. Read, enjoy, review!]


Monied Individual - Part XVI
He slammed the door behind him, making the plates rattle on the sideboard. “It’s okay, girl, I ain't gonna hurt you.” The cook, as tradition dictated, plump and rosy cheeked with her arms covered to the elbows in flour, but with a gypsy voluptuousness, picked up a rolling pin.

[Maya. Post-BDM. Kaylee finds the problem with Serenity, and Jayne starts his quest. Read, enjoy, review!]



Monied Individual - Part XV
“Did we …” “We did.” “Why?” As she raised an eyebrow at him he went on quickly, “I mean, we got a comfy bunk, not that far away. Is there any particular reason we’re in here instead?” “You don’t remember?” He concentrated for a moment, and the activities of a few hours previously burst onto him like a sunbeam. “Oh, right,” he acknowledged happily.

[Maya. Post-BDM. A little with each Serenity couple, but something goes bang. Read, enjoy, review!]

Monied Individual - Part XIV
This wasn’t how an ex-companion did things. Perhaps she’d been hanging around a certain Firefly captain for too long. He listened at keyholes as if it were a competitive sport.

[Maya. Post-BDM. The crew go to the Spring Lights Procession, Mal gives some good news, and Sir Warwick puts in another cameo. Read, enjoy, review!]
