Wiles  
Title: Wiles
Author: Bookaddict
Characters: pre Mal/Jayne, Crew
Rating: PG

Word count: 200
Comments: Mostly inspired by my icon and originally written for firefly100. Prompt: fair

It wasn’t fair and it had to stop.

He was used to feminine wiles in all their trickiness and could resist them real good. Inara’s tea and conversation, her beautifully kept shuttle and peaceful surroundings. Kaylee’s sunny smiles, coaxing ways and truly magical ways with the engine; River’s big brown eyes welling with tears, her crazy fits and downright spooky mind-reading; they never got to him. Not at all – never.

Zoe’s wiles weren’t exactly like that; they were more soldierly and mostly didn’t work either. Simon wasn’t capable of doing that much believable lying. Wash wouldn’t know a wile if it bit him on the foot, and the Shepherd’s were all religious and easy to ignore.

What wasn’t easy to ignore, in fact it was downright impossible; was the masculine brand of wiles flaunted daily on his ship.

There was the ripped and too tight t-shirts, the grunting while on the weight bench, the continuous food eating, the subtle knife polishing and gun caressing, the arguing, disagreeing and insistence on coin; and the total disregard of every rule he ever set, all contributed to keep Mal right off balance.

He was going to have to talk to his troublesome mercenary.


Continued in Wiley.

*gigglesnort*

the continuous food eating

This is a turn-on for Mal? *contemplates food-related M/S fic*

Very cute, even if the pairing is a bit squicky for me. But at least I have an icon. *g*

Nice icon *grins* and thanks for reading. I think Mal was thinking everything was wiles!!! And food could be a turn on *nod*, the way it's eaten etc. Thanks for reading even if it squicks you a little *hugs*

Very well done. Your Mal voice rings very true. I hope you continue this.

I'm glad you think I got Mal's voice right - I worry about that! A continuation? Hmmmmmmmmm...

The sound of all that grunting could definitely turn a girl's (and a guy's) head, that's for sure! Hee. Loved this, and glad you kept the ending as is!
bookaddict43: jaynearmpornbookaddict43 on March 24th, 2008 09:48 am (UTC)
I agree about the grunting and think the shirts without sleeves would contribute too! Thanks for your suggestion about the ending, it worked beautifully *hugs*

I adore this line! It's so Mal.

Anyways, this was great. I can definitely empathize with the captain, Jayne is such a tease. ;p

Jayne is a tease! Even if it's all unconscious-like :D
