Title: Here's Your Ruttin' Valentine
Author: noneofyours
Summary: Valentine's Day on Serenity. Everyone's happy about it, 'cept Mal
Rating: R/NC17. Talks about sex, and two couples have it, but it's not as smutty or graphic as usual.
Charaters: Mal/Inara, River/Jayne, hints of others
I'm actually quite upset with myself over that. There could be tears.

Title: Between the Idea and the Reality
Author: justskindeep
Author: Cupid!
Rating: Vaguely PG-13ish.
Notes: For lostdreamer56: happy Valentine's Day, Keara! Request was "Mal/River, mild angst throughout the story, and end however the author sees fit." I might have gone a bit more than "mild" with the angst, but I hope you'll still enjoy it.

Based on the balled "Crazy Man Michael" by Fairport Convention (Lyrics | .mp3). Title and cut text from T.S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men," which is lovely and should be read by everyone and their crazy prescient sister.

And massively huge thanks to the Goddess for her beta, tips, patience, and wisdom.

Life is very long./ Between the desire/ And the spasm,/ Between the potency/ And the existence,/ Between the essence/ And the descent/ Falls the Shadow.Collapse )

Title: The Independent Groom
Author: jedibuttercup
Rating: FR13
Disclaimer: All your Firefly are belong to Joss Whedon.
Summary: "Malcolm Reynolds was raised on a small ranch on the planet Shadow. His favorite pastimes were riding his horse and tormenting one of the indentured boys that worked there. The boy's name was Jayne, but Mal never called him that."
Notes: Slightly AU and pre-series, but with spoilers for all of canon. Plot borrowed heavily from "The Princess Bride". Complete crackfic, but as in character as I could make it. Challenge prompt and Chinese translations at the end.

Title: Big Damn Archer
Author: calliopes_pen
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Take Firefly, add the legend of Robin Hood, and stir thoroughly. This is the result. The pairing is Mal/Inara. Basically, the personalities and names transplanted into the Robin Hood legend.
Beta Readers: seandc
Notes: Written for noneofyours for shinyhearts. Thanks go out to littledetails for helping with the historical accuracy. Since this is Robin Hood and Firefly mixed together, expect strange things. For example, Jayne is Little John. So be prepared to hear him called Little Jayne. And there will be cursing in Old French rather than Chinese due to the time period.

“In this time were many Robbers and Outlaws, among the which, Robert Hood, and little John, renowned Thieves, continued in woods, disploying and robbing the goods of the rich. They killed none but such as would invade them or by resistance to their owne defense.”

--excerpt from the introduction to The Adventures of Robin Hood.

What happens when you add an outlaw, a companion, and mix it in with the legend of Sherwood? Read and you’ll find out. Just watch out for flying arrows.Collapse )

List of Old French translations:

bricon = blackguard

Vos saucisses sont inférieures, et vos pâtisseries sont comme les planches en bois moites! = Reality and you don't get on, do they?

Oui = Yes

Tu dérailles! = You’re out of line!

Title: Prince Mali Ababwa
Author: shellies

Summary: A conglomeration of Disney’s Aladdin and Firefly’s “Shindig.” Sort of.
Notes: For shinyhearts, written for likealocket. Thanks so much to adellyna and airgiodslv for the beta work. Chinese notes and translations at end of fic. Also, my apologies for the title, seriously. I couldn’t help myself.
