Oh, this is wonderful. Fascinating, believable River; heartbreaking Spike.

And I still love Jayne.

Thank you! River's sort of squirrelly character to write, so I'm glad my depiction rang true.

And yes, Jayne = <3.

EXQUISITE! I am so moved by Spike's loneliness and fragility, and River's strength and confidence. I'm used to seeing them in the opposite roles, and the switch gives them an added depth.

Aww, thank you so much! It's interesting what you say about the roles, because it never really occurred to me to have them any other way. I hadn't given it any thought before, but by the end of Serenity I see River as being well on her way to being a whole and functional person. Besides, honest truth, woobiness is my Spike's natural state; I have to try pretty hard to kick him out of it. :p

Thank you for the lovely comment. :)

Love it. Made for each other, weren't they?

I think they were. They'll be very good for each other: he can her make sense of the world, and she's got bits of Dawn and Dru and even Buffy, all rolled into one package.

Glad you liked. :)
