lex talionis  
Okay, finally posted Lex Talionis.

ETA: this would be the Firefly devilbunny, bye the bye. And for anyone who may be triggery, I would strongly suggest heeding the content warning at the top, as this story features sexual violence, and mature themes.

I shall now sit back and freak out for a while.

I didn't see this story posted elsewhere, but I have now stayed up WAY too late to read it (I cannot believe I have to go to work in a few hours!), and I blame you entirely! I love long, plotty tales, and all the characterizations and voices were bang on. I had a bit of difficulty with a couple of minor things plot-wise, but overall really, truly enjoyed it. I especially enjoyed the scene between Wash/Zoe after his nightmare--and the flashback between Simon/Kaylee, and oh yes, there was a Mal/Inara bit that was stunning.

Well, it's really late, and I'm gushing incoherently, so I'll send more sensible comments later ... just wanted to say great story. Thanks for sharing. :-)

I'd love to know what the plot points were, actually, if you get a chance after work...

So glad you enjoyed it! it's vaguely sureal, to work on something for almost four months, and finally be able to share it with folks...

Wow. Just wow. I don't really have the words to completely express how much I liked that and how well written it is ^_^ Yeah.

I miss this show so much...
I've had a bit of time to digest.

I loved all the Mal/Kaylee and Mal/Inara bits. You captured all the the characters so well, I think. The Mandarin phrases were integrated particularly well :)

Re: I miss this show so much...
I can't thank you enough for all your help with the Mandarin. I mean that.

I finished the story before I went to bed last night, so I've had almost eight hours to think about it.

After all that time though, there is still only one word that seems to sum up my thoughts on the matter.

LJC turns many shades of red

so glad you enjoyed it!

This is so, so great! I really love how real everything feels/sounds, and the interaction between all the characters. I especially liked the Mal/Kaylee bits, because there's a tenderness there that is seldom allowed/explored~~it's usually the precursor to naked!hot!sex!, which is not always the case.

I have to admit, I'm so used to the SSA titling system, and thought initially it was a SV fic... this is *way* better.

Glad the devilbunny is done. What's next?!

Next up is Book story, and I've got some ideas for both a LT follow-up, and an Inara story...

Aha! I was too late to help out.
Bookmarking for now, but I'll read it later and send you oodles of feedback.

I love you so much. I mean that.

oh! and meant to ask, how was your trip?

Wonderful and exhausting. The most beautiful sites in the world are easily spoiled by a screaming 2 year old.

But thanks for asking!
