Monied Individual - Part XIX by JANE0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 0   DATE: SUNDAY, APRIL 16, 2017
“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 by JANE0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, APRIL 16, 2017
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 by JANE0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2016
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 by JANE0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2016
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 by JANE0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2016
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 by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2016
“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 by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 0   DATE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2016
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!]
Monied Individual - Part XIII by JANE0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 0   DATE: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2016
“It’s a family tradition, Mal.” Eugenia patted his hand. “No matter who marries into us, whatever their name, the moment they say ‘I do’ they become Rostovs. So you are Malcolm Rostov. It has a fine ring to it, don’t you think?” [Maya. Post-BDM. A chapter of Mal and Freya, and a small revelation from Eugenia Rostov. Read, enjoy, review!]
Monied Individual - Part XII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, 2016
Hank had to shake his head. In this day and age, when the entire output of every quill, pen and two-fingered monkey thumping on a keyboard was available on the Cortex, this statement of wealth and power was way over the top. He loved the feel of paper himself, turning the pages to get to the next twist, scanning the print to try and guess the next turn, but even his collection wouldn’t fill more than a shelf here. [Maya. Post-BDM. Hank thinks about Zoe, Zoe thinks about Hank, while Freya and Mal have lunch. Read, enjoy, review!]
Monied Individual - Part XI by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2016
Freya felt flustered, as if her world had been turned upside down, black was white, and Jayne was the President of the Alliance. [Maya. Post-BDM. Mal and Freya go to church, Hank doesn't go ice-skating, and maybe it's hinting at the calm before the storm. An extra long chapter to make up for the delay - enjoy!]
Monied Individual - Part X by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: TUESDAY, JULY 26, 2016
He’d never had much to do with horses, having always been more interested in things that flew rather than things that trotted, but he had to admit that, close up, they were quite interesting. With quite a powerful odour that wasn’t unpleasant – in fact it reminded him a little of Jayne after he’d been working out, but he decided, wisely, not to mention that fact to the big man. [Maya. Post-BDM. Mal and Badger have a chat, Alex extends an invitation, and Hank decides to play protector. A longer chapter to make up for the delay!]
Monied Individual - Part IX by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, JUNE 26, 2016
Inara stood up gracefully, despite her pregnancy. “You’re making plans, Mal. And we all know how they usually turn out.” She raised an eyebrow at him, cocked her sleek head, and swept out of the kitchen. [Maya. Post-BDM. A little family time. Read, enjoy, please review!]
Monied Individual -Part VIII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 2016
“Who’s Winston Downey?” Mal asked, moving enough to look over her shoulder and reading the name of the owner. [Maya. Post-BDM. And post-party. Find out who Winston Downey is, and why he might be helping the Fosters. Read, enjoy, and please review!]
Monied Individual - Part VII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 0   DATE: MONDAY, MAY 30, 2016
Kaylee had warned him it might take a long time, and Jayne was getting bored. There’d been nothing of interest in any of the drawers, and while he’d refrained from carving his initials into the desk he was down to cleaning his nails with Binky and fantasising about what he and River might get up to when he got back. He was considering the red ribbon when there was a faint beep, and Jayne was on his knees in front of the safe. [Maya. Post-BDM. Conversations at the party, while Jayne has other priorities. Enjoy!]
Monied Individual - Part VI by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 9   DATE: SUNDAY, MAY 1, 2016
“This is one of those dreams, ain’t it? Where Jayne ends up riding an elephant and singing in Latin.” He looked at his crew again, all of whom were, at least metaphorically, drawing back from him. “Okay, so you don’t have those. Maybe I am going crazy after all.” [Maya. Post-BDM. The Fosters are keeping a lot of things up their sleeves, and Mal is determined to find out what.]
Monied Individual - Part V by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, APRIL 3, 2016
“Well, let’s see. Hank and Kaylee are off seeing if they can get that generator back to strength, and Zoe’s watching out for ‘em. I ain’t letting Simon or River in the same room as Badger if I can help it, and as much fun as it could be seeing Inara trying to buckle on a gunbelt around that pregnancy of hers, it ain’t gonna happen. That leaves Sam, and I ain’t even gonna try and warp his sensibilities by suggesting he wear one.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Badger holds a tea party, Hank works for his living, and the results are in. Enjoy!]
Monied Individual - Part IV by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2016
“Pleased to meet you,” Hank said, having to stop himself from wiping his hand down his pants. The touch of the other man’s hand had been like old paper, dry and brittle. It reminded him of one of the vids he’d watched recently, about a mummified corpse coming back to life. Except that was ridiculous. [Maya. Post-BDM. It's time to meet the enem- sorry, family.]
Monied Individual - Part III by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING:    DATE: SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 2016
“You two really need to get a room.” Simon’s voice drifted through from the rear of the cargo bay. “We had one,” Mal growled. “And you shouldn’t be listening in to private conversations.” “Why not?” the doctor asked, walking towards them. “It seems to be the major preoccupation of this crew. When we’re not actually doing crime, of course.” [Maya. Post-BDM. The crew get their first sight of the Triskelion mansion, and Simon stirs the pot.]
Monied Individual - Part II by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2016
“I don’t know what you all have against me being rich. I’d share, you know that. But you seem determined to keep me poor!” He stormed out, the door crashing closed behind him. [Maya. Post-BDM. The crew learn more about Hank's good fortune, and try to come to grips with the Triskelion family tree.]
Snowballs by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING:    DATE: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2015
“After we deliver the goods we can set Serenity down somewhere cold. See some real snow.” Merry Christmas to everyone! Just another in my occasional series of Mal/Jayne conversations, this time with a season theme. Enjoy!
Monied Individual - Part I by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 9   DATE: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2015
Hank’s parents had died when he was young, and his grandmother had brought him up. Mal considered it was her fault he was the way he was, but that was unfair – Hank was who he was always destined to be. Or possibly he was meant to be someone else entirely. [Maya. Post-BDM. A new story for your delectation and delight. Persephone, Badger and lawyers ... what could possibly go wrong?]
Secrets - Part XXVIII - Conclusion by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2015
River shook herself, turning from the rabbit hole. She didn’t feel like being Alice, and while Jayne’s grin sometimes made her think of the Cheshire Cat, the dormouse was asleep and likely to remain so. Of much more interest were the secrets. So many, some old, some new, some borrowed and some blue. And for once she didn’t care if she was referencing the Earth-that-was marriage ceremony. That wasn’t the point. Inara, the Bodens, Harper Lecomb and the Culver diamond, Randall Lecomb and his homicidal tendencies … all secrets, overlaid with the flavour of the Alliance and their need to control. [Maya. Post-BDM. Secrets comes to a conclusion, but some are still waiting to see the light of day.]
Secrets- Part XXVII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 0   DATE: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2015
“I don’t always trust him when he’s operating on Jayne. A slip of the scalpel, too many drugs, too little oxygen, and I would be a free woman. My worries. Not his thoughts. But he is my brother. For better or worse. For richer or poorer. In sickness and in health. And we have experienced them all.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Home stretch now on Secrets, with the crisis passed for now and decisions made. Thanks so much for those of you who have stuck with this!]
Secrets - Part XXVI by JANE0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2015
"Have you never done that? In all those times you were treating someone in the hospital, when you were the great Doctor Tam, didn’t you once tell less than the truth to someone if it made them feel less desperate?” [Maya. Post-BDM. Inara's fate, and what follows. My apologies for the wait!]
Hiding by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2015
"Jayne, she’s psychic.” “So?” [Maya-ish. Post-BDM. One of my occasional forays into standalone dialogue only, and to make up for the fact Secrets is still waiting an update. Mal and Jayne, and two cameos. Enjoy!]
Secrets - Part XXV by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: TUESDAY, JULY 14, 2015
River sighed unhappily, and suddenly all the emotions were too much. She turned and ran back towards the lake, not stopping as she reached the water’s edge but continuing on, diving as she got deep enough, letting the cold fill her ears and eyes as if it might wash all feelings from her. Breathing out and seeing air bubbles rise to the surface, she allowed herself to sink to the bottom. She ignored the pressure in her lungs, only considering how easy it would be to just breathe in, and she could float forever. [Maya. Post-BDM. River sees everyone and everything. Things are about to happen.]
Secrets- Part XXIV by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, JUNE 21, 2015
“My love, you must wake up,” Sam said so quietly it was doubtful anyone outside in the common area would have heard. “You must. If only to laugh at me and tell me how ridiculous I am. To touch my cheek and tell me I have to have faith. Please, Inara. Please.” A tear fell onto their hands, but he didn’t wipe it away, not caring if anyone saw. [Maya. Post-BDM. Mal and River discuss life, and there are more visitors. This will all soon be coming to a head.]
Secrets - Part XXIII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2015
Jayne materialised from the darkness and wrapped his strong arms around the young doctor, pinning him. “Not a good idea. Mal’s as like to give you one last chance then shoot you. If you’d tried that on me, now, you’d be bleeding into the dirt, but then Mal always was a soft touch.” “Let me go!” “Nope. Less you’d like me to hand you over to Frey, and don’t go thinking that’s the easy option.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Couples talk, Simon's anger bubbles over, and Inara's time is running out.]
Secrets - Part XXII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: TUESDAY, MAY 12, 2015
Simon’s lips thinned. “The D17 might be the original problem, affecting a tiny number of those exposed, perhaps only one or two people of the same family, but the Anti-Pax wasn’t designed for it. Besides, that would be like using a hammer when I need a scalpel.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Is there light at the end of the tunnel, or is it an oncoming Alliance cruiser?]
Secrets - Part XXI by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: FRIDAY, MAY 1, 2015
“I don’t want to be pitied!” The words were out before she could stop them. “Pity? You think that’s what’s going to go through their heads? Inara, I knew you were stubborn, but since when did you catch stupid?” [Maya. Post-BDM. A little more of the fall-out from Inara's revelation, and a message from Monty. And yes, another chapter in just a few days!]
Secrets - Part XX by JANE0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 2015
“No. You don’t get to play word games with me, Inara. Mal, his crew … perhaps I can understand you not wanting to burden them with this. But me?” The pain was evident in his voice and now in his expression. “Me, Inara? I gave up everything to be with you. And I would again. But you don’t trust me enough to tell me something this important. Don’t you think I had a right to know what my child is doing to you?” [Maya. Post-BDM. Inara's secret is revealed. And don't faint because I've posted another chapter in less than a year!]
Secrets - Part XIX by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 9   DATE: SUNDAY, APRIL 19, 2015
Freya gazed at Inara, at the innate elegance of her simple blue tunic and full length skirt, her newly short hair making her look even more delicate, more elfin than usual. Still, that didn’t disguise the steel core. “Okay.” Freya nodded slowly. “When you’re ready. Just don’t leave it too late.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Edging closer to finding out about another secret, this time Inara's.]
Secrets - Part XVIII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, MARCH 29, 2015
“Can you be sure the parts aren’t tagged in any way? Because I can’t.” Freya shook her head, then put her hand on Monty’s arm. “We can’t afford to have this getting back to you. To us. Besides, if the ship isn’t found then I’m sure Harper Lecomb isn’t going to give up looking for his son. We’ve got enemies coming out of our ears – we don’t need to breed new ones.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Randall Lecomb meets his final end, and Simon is still working on Inara's problem. Here's an extra long chapter to make up for the long, long delay in getting it to you!]
Secrets - Part XVII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: TUESDAY, AUGUST 26, 2014
“Bored now,” River said and span on her heel. Her body moved out of the way of the bullet even as she lifted her leg, her foot connecting solidly with Linc’s jaw. [Maya. Post-BDM. While Inara's illness is no longer a secret, Mal and his crew go out to find Molly.]
Secrets - Part XVI by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, AUGUST 3, 2014
“Then do it again.” Mal was aware he’d used his sergeant’s voice from the slightly wounded expression on his old friend’s face, and made himself take a step back. “It’s like you said, Monty – in the dark there’s no knowing where that girl’s got to. Like as not she took it into her mind to go visiting, got lost and mistook the time. She could be huddled up in someone’s barn right now, fast asleep.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Serenity heads back to Lazarus and Inara finds her sickness finally getting the better of her.]
Secrets - Part XV by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 8   DATE: MONDAY, MAY 26, 2014
Monty stroked his beard. “Maybe they’re afraid of us for when the war’s begun, of what we’d be capable of. Considering we held the Alliance nearly to a draw last time.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Mal and Monty talk, Serenity takes a trip, but there's trouble on the horizon.]
Secrets - Part XIV by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, MARCH 9, 2014
Jayne looked almost abashed, his usual expression when anyone mentioned his home planet. “Even took some work on a fishing boat on Melbourne once.” “That must’ve been hell. For a man who hates fish guts with a vengeance.” “Didn’t help.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Just a little fluff before getting back to the nitty gritty ...]
Secrets - Part XIII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2014
"Perhaps you want to think on this. Lecomb sent a bounty hunter – several, in fact – to find some jewellery and kill a girl on the quiet, so nobody knows he lost them in the first place. Perhaps you should consider whether he might not employ someone else to kill you, just so you can’t tell anyone either.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Simon finishes the job, and Mal talks to Philo again.]
Secrets - Part XII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2014
Her face looked back at her, make-up only a little smudged and appearing almost normal. Almost. Hard to see that she was dying. [Maya. Post-BDM. Everyone's waiting for Simon to work his magic, but Inara has secrets of her own.]
Secrets - Part XI by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2013
Freya gazed at him for a long moment, and he felt her stepping through his mind. It wasn’t to find anything, and he wasn’t even sure she knew she was doing it – it seemed more as if it was some kind of displacement activity while she thought. At last she said, “Corrupt it.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Simon explains what he's found, and Mal makes a plan.]
Secrets - Part X by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: MONDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2013
He went to check the coffee pot, and decided that, while it might do for degreasing the welding that needed doing in the aft storage locker, as a beverage it left a lot to be desired, and poured it down the sink. “We might as well go sit with the rest, considering River couldn’t keep her mouth shut and everyone’s waiting for Simon to come up with something.” [Maya. Post-BDM. Mal/Freya-centric chapter, and longer to make up for not posting in a while!]
Secrets - Part IX by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2013
“Everything a good forger needs to create some first rate IDs. Think he is? A good forger, I mean?” “Well, Monty has better contacts in the shady side of life than even me.” “No. Really?” Hank’s eyes were wide with feigned disbelief. [Maya. Post-BDM. Moving towards the nitty-gritty ...]
Secrets - Part VIII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: MONDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2013
Mal looked at the man, seeing years put on him that hadn’t been there that morning, the lines around his eyes and the sallowness of his complexion. “I can’t say I blame you, not for any of it. People do bad things when they’re in a corner, and although a Shepherd might say a sin of omission is still a sin, I’m not like to hold it against you.” Maya. Post-BDM.
Secrets - Part VII by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 2013
“She came in, picked it up and …” “Started screaming.” “And projecting. I couldn’t get it, not all of it, but there was death and destruction, in a lot of detail.” She shuddered faintly. [Maya. Post-BDM. There's more to things than meets the eye, and Mal feels like he's waiting for the boot to drop.]
Secrets - Part VI by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING:    DATE: THURSDAY, MAY 9, 2013
“’Nara, we danced so long around each other I think we forgot that dancing has to stop sometime. The band plays the last waltz and we have to go on home. Only I left with Frey, and you’ve got Sam. I think I got the best end of the deal, mind.” [Maya. Post-BDM. In which we meet Molly, some hints are given about Inara, and River turns things upside down.]
Secrets - Part V by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: THURSDAY, MAY 2, 2013
This was what Kaylee in particular didn’t really understand. She thought Jayne had changed, that something new had overcome him when he joined Serenity. That wasn’t the case, of course. His ability to be gentle and loving had always been there, just reduced to some embers and a black and white striped shirt. Now they burned bright, while his mean streak had shrunk in comparison. But it was all still there, only the balance changing. [Maya. Post-BDM. Mal gets some answers but raises more questions.]
Secrets - Part IV by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, 2013
Hank looked at Zoe, who nodded fractionally, then pulled a miniature Cortex pad from his pocket. Switching it on he did something complicated with the control buttons and code began to flash across the small screen, faster than could be read. Glancing up he realised everyone was watching him. “What? You carry guns, I carry this.” He went back to inputting his request. [Maya. Post-BDM. The mystery deepens.]
Secrets - Part III by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING: 10   DATE: MONDAY, APRIL 1, 2013
The man gazed at her as if he could read the truth off the inside of her skull, and she began to get even more uncomfortable. Finally he nodded, just once. “Shiny.” The word sounded foreign in his mouth, as if he wasn’t really used to saying it. [Maya. Post-BDM.]
Secrets - Part II by Jane0904
GENRE: GENERAL   RATING:    DATE: MONDAY, MARCH 18, 2013
Freya watched him leave, slightly ashamed that she’d pushed him a little mentally. The trouble was, she knew he was right, but so was she. Yes, she should tell Mal, but he’d want to know why she’d decided to ask Simon to do those tests, and exactly what she thought she was feeling. Worse, if she told him, told Mal about those spiderweb touches in her mind, he might think she was going mad. And that would be the best of the possible reactions. (Maya. Post-BDM.)
