I'm an amateur fiction writer and fellow browncoat, currently looking for something to do in the last month of my summer vacation from college. I got an idea to take requests for a Firefly fanfic you want to read. If you have a concept you might not have the time to develop, you want to donate, I will see if I can make it into a fanfic for you, and upload it to fanfiction.net

I don't want to do anything too weird though, I know fanfic has some interesting sub-genres.

Yes . . . engineering fiction.

Kaylee, in her spare time during the TV series, is studying to be a spaceship engineer. The online school that Kaylee attends knows her only as FireflyGirlMechanic, so she can keep her secret from the crew.

It's a secret because Mal expects her to work for him 24/7, Zoe expects her to stay in the social class she was born to, and Jayne has contempt for all learning. (Wash can't keep a secret, so he can't know, either. But Inara can. ) Simon would be oblivious, even if he was told. River helps with computer simulations.

Kaylee has been studying for years and she is finishing her master's degree. Her thesis project is a starship engine design without the disastrous and fatal flaws of the ones designed on Earth. An uncomfortably large percent of starships blew-up on the trip. No one knew which ships would blow.

She solves the problem by not using many engines for a ship. Instead, she uses a single huge engine that would cost a huge amount of money for the R&D to perfect the design. Since she is a graduate student, she doesn't worry about the money. It will never be built, anyway.

But then some real live working engineers, who are designing the first starship in centuries, want her on their project. They love her hot engine design.

I wonder what happens next.

That's definitely an original idea. I'm afraid I don't know enough about engineering to try that out though.

May the Good Lord take a liking to you... but not too soon!


The crew of Serenity go through a worm hole and get all distorted and time is limited so they have to do the job while being distorted. Just repeating something I heard said by Alan.

You only need know people, not engineering. Kaylee has ambition and energy enough to be an engineer, rather than a poorly paid mechanic working for a dangerous gang of criminals. All you need to do is show Kaylee deciding to stay on Serenity. Or go.

Personally, I'd write the story where Kaylee gets offered an engineering job just before the events of the movie. She gives her answer to the engineers while Serenity is being rebuilt after the crash. Make it a cliff-hanger -- which way Kaylee decides to go.

I have a whole bunch of prompts that I'll probably never get around to, and I've been trying to figure out where would be the best place to post them.

You don't have to do all or any of them, just putting some of these out here and seeing if you're inspired by any of them.

Examples:

Where and how and why did Inara get that tough looking outfit in the first part of the new comic books?

Young Mal fic where he goes after some cattle thieves on Shadow then finds a bigger problem.

The crew end up running some dogs as cargo after all. Instead of beagles, they're gen-mod huskies intended for dog-sledding and a rowdy frontier St. Albans settlement not unlike Alaska gold rush towns. One of the dogs takes to Mal and the crew, and they have to work together to get the other dogs back after they've been stolen.

River decides to convince Simon to recreate a sort of high class core gala in the cargo bay for Kaylee, and he utterly screws it up. (then it is fixed and gets better)

Pre-movie, vestiges of Book's old life comes back to haunt him when he spots a familiar face in a crowd on Persephone.

The crew have a baby shower for Zoe. It goes delightfully wrong.

An attempt from a concerned Inara to save the crew and Mal from a contact she knows is dangerous and untrustworthy by negotiation and bribery accidentally results in Mal getting taken hostage for more ransom, and Inara and the crew have to go to his rescue.

Inara still hasn't told Mal that she has a terminal illness, but as her time is coming close she chooses to embrace the adventure in her life and go out without regrets. That is, until the crew and Serenity end up entangled in a Reaver trap during a salvage operation, and she volunteers herself for the dangerous task of disarming it via Kaylee's directions from the dead ship they're docked to.
