Chapter 1



By Victoria E.

After that terrible, unexpected moment when Wash was skewered by a Reaver … skewer, we believed it was the end of his life as husband, pilot and cast member of Serenity. It was, however, only the beginning of a new adventure.

The Reavers, those who weren’t killed by Zoe, Jayne, and the crew, took him back to their ship to keep for an afternoon snack. As they retreated, they stopped at a nearby planet for fresh meat. During the savage slaughter, Wash’s nearly lifeless body was taken from the ship by the planet’s inhabitants, who just happened to be mystical healers.

The people, who were known as the Seaquills, took Wash to their temple, chapel … whatever. They began to sing folk songs, wave their arms, and jump up and down. Suddenly the giant hole in his chest began to heal. The ritual went on for hours.

The next morning Wash was sitting up eating a protein shake. Everything seemed to be healing nicely except his memory, which was lost.

The people called him Windy … taken from the only phrase he could remember from his past life. He was very grateful to these people, but he knew he must find his own family

He wandered though the galaxy trying to remember who he was and where he got that stupid Hawaiian shirt. He landed on Persephone and found the sunsets familiar, he flew by Canton and recognized a terrible stench, but none of these experiences explained his past life or why be could fly a spaceship.

He took a fry cook opportunity on one of the trade planets hoping to meet someone in the crowds who would recognize him. Across the room he saw a tall, beautiful, dark-skinned woman who seemed familiar, but a little scary.

She caught his glance and walked slowly across the room to him in disbelief. Softly she said, “Wash?” “No,” he said, “my name is Windy, but you can call me anything you like.”

The rest of the crew spotted him and came over to greet him. Slowly the pieces of his “life that was” started to fit together.

Mal was his captain, Zoe was his wife, and he was a thief! Wacky, fun memories!

They all reminisced about the past, but more importantly, they now could look forward to a future that included the filming of Serenity II: The Search for Wash.

lunavirgo: This story has fresh ideas, even the theme of cross-dressing have been used before. But Sid is a complicated character, independent, but utterly confused about her feminine charm.

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

Ravenhawk: Kim I was sure I wrote this before. But since both my computer and my internet connection has been futzing around so much, I'm surprised that I'm able to write this even now. basically you know I adore this story, I've told you as much before. I cannot fault it in any way at all, except that I wa...

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging. The opening two or three chapters seem quite character-dense but they all soon come to life and there is no padding, filling or wasted time readin...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Alex Rushmer: I just want to say that the writing in this is amazing! I read the first couple chapters and was absolutely drawn in by it, The way you use first person in this story is extremely engaging and does wonders with your character development. I immediately had a picture of the characters and plotline...

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Mark-Mikkel: Got directed here by the author herself. Started reading it, schoolday turned into a day of reading. I really like the apocaliptic world she has created. There are some oddities in the writing tho, but I guess they are because she did have to do it for NaNo (which she wrecked, good job!). In the ...
