So no more runnin’. I aim to misbehave.
Guys, look at how disappointed Jayne is. His OTP was *so close* to becoming canon.
While Wash is just like #I am 5000% done with this ship
The light on their faces: Mal is cragged, often shadowed, but strong, sad-eyed and kind. Kaylee is round, warm, and open. Sexuality and honesty. River is planed, underlit, eyes hooded. She’s a question. Simon works in angles as well, coolly handsome and hard to connect with - but ultimately he’s a romantic. Jayne doesn’t give a good goddamn how he’s lit. Zoe glows. She cannot help it. Wash is light, playful - often amongst his screens or slightly blown out by the sun of high atmosphere… Inara’s light is complex, like Mal’s. Hiding and beckoning.

“I’ve often thought, and I’ve said this before whenever asked, ‘where do you think Zoe is, how do you think that story would continue?’ and I always say I was pregnant in Serenity. I was pregnant, and I was pregnant with Wash’s child. I do think that somewhere there is this beige, curly red-haired child running around the verse.” - Gina Torres
Love, you can learn all the math in the ‘verse, but you take a boat in the air you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just as the turning of worlds.
Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down. Tells you she’s hurtin ‘fore she keens.
Makes her a home. - Capt Mal Reynolds
