ON A PLANET FAR, FAR AWAY …

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.

Raymond Keith Moon: Great story arc. Nice command of the balance of overview and detail. Feels a bit like a multi-player computer game, but provides satisfying explanations for all the apparent magic. Please keep writing!

Leah Brown: This was an amazing read! I was hooked from the very first chapter, holding my breadth to see what would happen next. The characters are rich and vibrant, and the world Danielle has created is fascinating. If you love YA, you MUST read this book. Such a smart, brilliant debut novel. I loved it!

Nate_L: I started to read this, excited about the story line. The writing style only made me more excited, I was stunned by Mikes ability to put this kind of story into words. It's Dashner-style, simple but sophisticated... (Makes sense to me, lol!)The beginning was a tad confusing, as I thought she was ...

Jaslyn: I loved reading this so much!! The transformation of Nina's self-esteem was incredible to read, and while I was rooting for Parker halfway through, I was very satisfied when Harrison and Nina finally got everything straight. The side characters were adorable - I especially loved Anna, Richel, Mic...

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

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. ...

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed. I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...

Steve Lang: I thought this story was imaginative, and well thought out. I also think it was an original piece, and not a rehash of previous scifi stories I've read in the past.Thank you for the effort put into this tale, and I look forward to reading more of your work!

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...

Roger A. Fauble: Excellent read, the only thing not to like is that I could only read it at home on my computer. I'm a character reader, I get into the characters, their story, who/what they are.
