    Dark oneshot, brief but poignant; really just a what-if idea that's fairly well fleshed out. It keeps in character very well with the series/movie, and fits quite well with what I know of government bureaucracy and of idealistic zealots employed by said institution. This could have potentially been a great longer story, but it fits the mood really well as a short, almost detached piece.

    I'm not a huge fan of a lot of JB's work, especially considering how she tends to leave things a bit vague, but this really hit something off on that nasty streak that wants the world to Burn. Post-Serenity. Solid 4/5.

    I liked the idea, though it did feel a little boring. Plus I'm not really a fan of Mal/River, but 4/5 stars from me.
