post-BDM (Big Damn Movie)
"After Serenity, River and Zoe deal with pilot chairs and plastic dinosaurs." Lovely, with a great River-voice. Bonus points for titling the story after my very favorite line from the movie.

Another story about Zoe and grief and new beginnings. Some lovely character moments.

What it says on the tin. Mostly funny, perfectly voiced. Great fun. I think the Oz segment is my favorite.

I recced a River and Spike friendship fic awhile back. Here's another. Sad, with a whiff of hope.
