TITLE: Positive Affirmations
AUTHOR: Susan / apckrfan
DISTRIBUTION: My site, AO3, FanFiction.net, LiveJournal, Yahoo Groups. Anyone else, please just tell me where it's at.
DISCLAIMER: I don't own any characters. They are owned by Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy, etc. No copyright infringement is intended and no profit is made.
RATING: I'm going to rate it Mature just to be on the safe side for later parts.
SPOILERS: This is set post-Ariel for sure and set in some undetermined time in the near future after the episode (and AU after that)
SUMMARY: Simon unwittingly altered things for River when sneaking her into the Alliance hospital for the tests. Now, back on Serenity after a spell of not feeling well, River's just completed a test of a very different kind and for once isn't too sure what the results mean.
CHARACTERS/PAIRING: River Tam & Mal Reynolds
STATUS: Complete
WORD COUNT: 65,957
FEEDBACK: Please, I can't write better without it.
NOTES: This is for the LJ community 50_baby_fics. It's become a multi-part fic, so I'll list the applicable prompt number with each part. This is my first attempt at a River/Mal fic, but I sort of thought it would be him to step-up in this situation.
NOTES2: You can hover any of the foreign words for their meaning.
NOTES3: Comments in both brackets and italics ([like this]) are a memory, previous conversation. Comments only in italics (like this) are River's reading/getting someone else's thoughts.
