A treat for fireflyfans from butterflykiki

Rev the old ticker up with this very impressive Firefly fic from butterflykiki:
"Divergence"
Pulse-pounding to the very end.


That was scary, wasn't it?
And yet, I didn't see the ending coming. Quite literally the first time: it managed to make me read through my fingers and miss the little twist at the end. River's intermittent prolepsis1 leaves the question of whether the premonition is inevitable, but that only makes the story better IMHO.
Good, good stuff. A day later and I am still in awe.

1 Nature or nurture? Here's the question I posted in alt.tv.firely in December, 2002.


Aw, trask, not again!
