    Title: A Man of Honor
    Author: Thescarredman
    Rating: T
    Genre: Sci-Fi/Drama
    Status: Complete
    Fandom: Firefly
    Pairings: none
    Summary: First in the series. Simon has found a cure for River's condition... or is she just a new kind of crazy? River/Jayne, sort of. Well, not really. Maybe so.
    Sequels: A Man of Action, A Man of Principle, Campfire Story

    I've noticed we don't have too many Firefly fics in the Library so I decided to do something about it. This serial is basically writer's idea for season two. He ignored a few things that were revealed in the movie, most noticeably, River is not a ninja, just a psychic (and often psychotic) genius. The whole thing is revolving around characters, their interaction and personal drama. There is no bigger story here or some great adventure, just everyday life on Serenity we saw on the show (although that's hardly uneventful). What makes this the best Firefly story I've read is writer's ability to add new layers to the crew's personalities and still somehow keeping them in character. Also, what he did with their past and connection to the present is simply astonishing. Read it, you won't regret it. Peace out.

    But... I like ninja...?

    Haven't read a Firefly story in ages. I'll give this a shot and post a review after.

    We all do. Summer Glau was born to be ninja, if you ask me, but this works too. Just finished my annual Firefly rewatch so I tried to find a good Firefly story and I stumbled upon this.
