FIC: The Very Small Girl and the Monster

Title: The Very Small Girl and the Monster
Words / rating: 2100 words / PG
Fandom: Firefly/BtVS crossover
Characters: River, Spike (w/background Spuffy)
Spoilers: For all of both shows

This is another Christmas/birthday fic, because it's penny_lane_42's birthday tomorrow! Happy birthday! The reason it's way longer than most of the giftfics is because I had the idea at least six months ago and it's been sitting around half-written ever since. If the reader is so inclined, it can be considered a sequel-in-spirit to my drabble Auld Lang Syne. (Lauren, do you remember that conversation?)

There are lots of things River still doesn’t tell Simon.Collapse )

Somehow, I had missed this one.

But it's lovely and atmospheric and there are *wonderful* lines.

I loved this: "By the bulge of it she knows there’s a pistol strapped into an inside pocket. It’s funny, she thinks, the different shapes trust comes in."


"He’s such a fragile monster."

and this one might be the best River-voice ever?

"She listened to the captain making this agreement; physicality is almost certain. Teeth also a high probability."

(even though I read this whole thing waiting to find Matilda, I enjoyed it! *g*).

Oooh, I love it when people quote lines back to me. :) I really enjoy writing River-voice, so I'm glad they rang true for you, too.

(even though I read this whole thing waiting to find Matilda, I enjoyed it! *g*).

*facepalm* You know, I ended up writing the bulk of that linky post *twice,* and I think did that the first time, too, but caught myself. If you're still looking for the Matilda fic, it's here.

“Spike?” She calls him by name again because when someone is hungry you feed them. I loved this whole story, your River voice was fantastic, but this line right here caught me. What a perfect thought.

Oh man, I love hearing what particular lines work for people. Thank you so much!

For some reason I had not read this before! I like it a lot! River is very River and Spike is very Spike and somehow they mesh very well in the same universe. The very small girl and the monster indeed. What a good.
