AWS is pround to announce
a slash Firefly zine
Set 500 years in the future, Firefly takes place in the
furthermost reaches of the galaxy, in the wake of a civil war that
has turned the universe into a dark, paranoid place, ruled by a
totalitarian government called The Alliance. On a Firefly-class ship
called Serenity, Captain Mal Reynolds, a defeated soldier who opposes
the Alliance government, hurtles around the galaxy towards whatever
booty he can plunder, to keep fuel in his tanks and food on the
table. To earn a bit of extra cash, he and his crew take passengers
onboard to hitch rides around the galaxy, or any job they can find
that pays good coin. In this digest zine, these tales by the
talented J.M. Griffin explore the attraction and feelings between Mal
and Simon, the doctor on board ship, while the rest of the crew is
either aware of it or not, and continues on with trying to avoid
having the 'verse kill them without meaning to. Most stories have
been previously posted, but J.M. Griffin has written one tale
exclusively for this zine, which can't be found anywhere else!
Alternately funny, sad and dramatic, these stories are not to be

took a quick step away.
"Captain?" Simon said to Mal's back. "Mal? Is there something
Mal shook his head sharply. "What, besides the fact we lost a
huge amount of money in a double-cross I should have seen coming?
Nah, it's just...it's just...."
Mal spun on his heel, coming round to face Simon. His face was
pale and he appeared to be holding himself in check. For a moment,
Simon thought the captain was going to belt him one. It wouldn't be
the first time, or the second, for that matter. But it would be the
first time in a long time. Simon had to force himself not to take a
protective step back when Mal huffed out a breath.
"It's been a while, Simon," the captain ground out.
"What?" Now Simon was totally nonplussed. He swept Mal from
head to toe with his eyes in an effort to figure out what was going
on. At first he didn't see it.
And then he did.
Trying hard not to smile, he stepped back in close to Mal. "For
me, too," he said softly.
