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!

How can you shame me in front of new people?

See the one above.
Oh, on second thought, nermine, don't. ;-)

:g: Not actually narcissistic, honest!

No, it's probably the happy, hyper guy - you know, the one I assimilated some years ago. :-P

You're wearing your bonnet, aren't you?

Oh, my!
Thanks for the rec!
:g: You're most welcome. More than deserved.

And, well, I'm sure you saw this coming.
I swear I did not!

Any more than I saw Shapherd Mal trasking Buffy to the ground or the Smurrows from the Special Hell coming.

BUT THAT IS ANOTHER STORY...

Well, now, don't that beat all?
And you said Taelyn wasn't working for Jade!!
(Who the trask is your Companion, anyway?! Sheesh.
Feminine mystique is one thing, but yer knot supposed to keep SIKRITS from yer clone!)

But... but... River spoke the anemone motto!
Little soul, big world. Eat, sleep, and eat. Many souls.

What does that make us?
All together now...

Big damn clones, sir!!
