The 'verse is a weird place. One moment, you're being attacked by flesh-eating monstrosities, the next, you're sitting down to dine with a horse.

The crew of Serenity don't quite fit in with the law. They don't quite fit in outside of it, either. They make do by handling whatever jobs that come their way, and scavenging what they can from derelict ships when the opportunity arises. But one such scavenging operation goes horribly wrong.

Reavers are the stuff of legends and nightmares. Men who flew out to the edge of the galaxy, at the end of all human knowledge. When they came back, they weren't men anymore. Foul creatures who kill the lucky ones, and desecrate the bodies of the rest before ripping the corpses apart.

Serenity flees from a Reaver infested wreckage, but not before the Reavers follow. Catastrophically damaged, the ship descends on the surface of a planet which holds more than its fair share of mysteries.

Unfortunately, the Reavers are hot in pursuit.

Rated "Teen" for occasional mature themes, such as violence, profanity in both the English and Mandarin language, potential showing of blood, possible mild sexual themes, poorly executed penis jokes, and intense amounts of Jayne.

You have been warned.

Well, I made a Firefly/MLP cross-fic. Big whoop, you wanna fight about it?
Criticism would be appreciated, though. So... Criticise away!

Hmmm, an interesting start, tracking to see what comes next. :twilightsmile:

152003Why would i fight about this amazing story?!?!

You seem to have everyone's voices down, and I'm assuming this takes place between Those Left Behind and Serenity since Book and Inara are MIA.

You could fix up the formatting, though, and break up the paragraphs more clearly. Either indent them or have a line between them.

What an entry ^_^ you actually nailed the character down pretty well ^_^ awesomework.
Great work fellow Brown-coat.
I can see it now.

Interesting landing.

Definitely following this one.

Actually, I sort of set this directly after the last episode, "Objects in Space", but before "Those left Behind". Inara I havn't introduced yet, but I'm sure I got Book in there, even if I didn't actually name him...
"Jayne was pulled up by two men, one young, well-groomed man in medical scrubs, and one old, tan weathered man, grey hair pulled back into a ponytail."
Yah, there we go. I'll introduce him properly later on, though.

Thanks for the criticism, I'll be sure to space the paragraphs more! :twilightsmile:

Ooh, have Sheperd Book's hair freak Fluttershy out like it freaked River out and I will love you forever

I will absolutely be including that, and I'll probably be singing your praises in the streets for a while, too. :rainbowkiss:

Although I have a thing agaist crossover fics (Don't ask why, I don't know) I have to applaud you for being a fan of Firefly (everypony with any sense knows it's the one of the best shows ever created). It's great to find another fan of that show. I wish you the best in all your writing endeavors :pinkiehappy:

154038 Wow! I'm GLaD you like the idea!

Well, this is certainly an intriguing start. I'll definitely be tracking this, can't wait to see where it goes.

I do have one little nitpick, though-I find it VERY hard to believe that Jayne would ever go anywhere without a weapon, even if ordered to. But I'll just try to ignore that little detail.

My friend Ash hates the fact that I am a brony. But he loves this show. He is going to be sooo mad that this story exists. I personally think that its amazing. :rainbowlaugh:

oh Pinkie, you're such a silly filly :rainbowlaugh:

anywho, a good chapter, lookin forward to Pinkie meeting River :pinkiehappy:


Naw, I kid.:rainbowlaugh:
So, sorry I didn’t update this sooner, but finding time for this between College work is difficult. I mean, really difficult.
I’ll try to post updates at least once a week, but it might take longer if stuff gets in the way. But hey, it’s waiting a while for at least semi-decent quality, or a borderline trollfic post every two days. I know which I would prefer.

Also, what are the requirements for posting on EqD? And what are they odds that they’d outright reject me? I’m guessing high.

Criticisms and storyline suggestions appreciated as always!:rainbowkiss:

As for criticism:
Great portrayal of characters, I can't see any spelling mistakes. and I'm SO looking forward to seeing more.

170488 I remember that the EqD requirements for multipart stories is 3000+ words per chapter, and one-shots are 2500+ words. And that's just the length.

Anyways, another great chapter. I'm really looking forward to how the two casts interact. I'm just wondering what Book, Zoe, and Inara are going to be doing once they get away from the crash site. Please tell me that the CMC are involved with them :pinkiehappy:

Cutie Mark Crusader Companions?


Cutie Mark Crusader Alien Busters. (aka FiB-Fillies in Black.)

*Checks chapter length*

And yeah, those three were the hardest ones to think of when it came to interactions, Inara especially.

"Cutie Mark Crusader Companions"

Rarity will love Inara, all her exotic clothes and how she sort of emenates elegance

Why do you keep having such good ideas? :ajbemused: You're forcing me to re-write my terrible plot with bad ideas into something with good ideas...
Keep this up and I'll have to sign you on as my unpaid co-author! Did I mention it's unpaid?! I did? Good. Because you won't be getting paid.:pinkiehappy:

173807 I am okay with this. But I'm sure you would have put Inara with Rarity at some point

Edit--Zoe and Big McIntosh? Both quiet observers.

177194 yeah, it was probably going to happen at some point anyway. To be honest, though, I haven't exactly thought out the plot the whole way through (and the parts I have thought out i'm changing quite a bit too frequently), so I'm still thinking of character combinations too.
Big Mac and Zoe? Hmm... Interesting...

177676 I drew them. I am now drawing kaylee and pinkie

172086 Just double checked the EqD requirements. You're allowed to submit multiple chapters at once to meet the 3000 bar

I know I promised all you guys this chapter sooner, but I just... I just got bogged down with stuff. I tried to get in a few paragraphs here and there, but writing a paragraph a day isn’t so great for quality and continuity...
So I re-did this whole chapter, and got back into the swing of it by writing a long description of Serenity. I felt better after starin’ at her for a while (double entendre fully intended).
Don’t worry through: I don’t plan on having this on hiatus at any point. I may lose the swing of things, and I may fall down from time to time, but I’ll keep on pushin’. Just gotta keep the momentum, is all.:rainbowdetermined2:

I personally didn’t feel too proud of this chapter, but from what more I’ve written that I’m keeping from you, I think it’ll get better.:twilightblush:


*Ahem* Anyway, see anything wrong, or could be better, don’t hesitate to go tellin’ me now, ya’ll hear?

TWO weeks for ONE chapter your losing me dude if you don't update sooner I'm not gonna read this

227417 I'll forgive you if you accept my offer to do art for this fic. :rainbowdetermined2:

I feel somehow cheated at the lack of Scootaloo...

otherwise a great chapter, taking a running bet in my head on who's knocking on the door

First off, lovely title. It gives me....ideas.

Second, I caught the reference to That Film Which Shall Not Be Named. One of the few times I've seen it done well.:yay:

Third, during the question wall, I could easily identify who was asking what (Inara, Kaylee, Book) and hear it in their voice.

Don't worry about the slow updating. Get an idea, find a keyboard, keep writin'

Now for my ideas for the future:
I can see Spike asking Inara for relationship advice
Jayne+((Rainbow Dash * Applejack)/Competition) = :pinkiehappy:
Book could have a talk with Fluttershy about something, maybe a "unexamined life" thingy
Kaylee will have a nerdgasm when she sees Tank's flying apparatus

:applecry: "Aren't you gonna stay for the epilogue?

Yeah, seriously though, I'm getting back into the swing of things. I'm actually working on two chapters at once... Successfully, no less. :rainbowdetermined2:

227596 :rainbowhuh: Huh? Are you talking about me or you making the art? I mean, I got an idea for the cover art, but I'm fully okay with anything you wanna do, too.:twilightblush:

227920 Well, that's what disclaimers are for!:rainbowlaugh:
I'll see if I can shoehorn her into the story somewhere... Maybe I'll get the CMCs to go reaver hunting...:pinkiecrazy:

Also, I bet you double your bet that what you're thinking is outside is also what I think you think is outside.

227596 Sorry dude I'm horrible at art but i was really joking I don't know why but if i read a fic i HAVE to finish it or it drives me crazy

Heh, thanks! Somehow, I don't think much dancing will be going on here, though...:rainbowlaugh:

And yeah, I can also see Spike asking that of Inara...
As for Fluttershy and Book, somebody suggested earlier that she meet with Book's "hair monster", like River. Nothing's set in concrete when it comes to this fic, though.
...That basically means that I'll be more than happy to steal all your ideas.:pinkiehappy:
Care to elaborate on the "Jayne plus Dash multiplied by Applejack squared" idea? I tend to blank out after the second set of brackets.
Also, I would've thought that Kaylee would rather take it apart, stick a micro-reactor in there, put it together and watch it the turtle fly.



229445 Jayne is competitive by nature. You saw how upset he was that he slept through Objects in Space. Add in that both Rainbow Dash and Applejack are highly competitive, and something is bound to not go smooth. Maybe have Vera involved somehow.

And feel free to steal the ideas.

229296 I like drawing and I already sketched a number of Firefly characters with ponies :twilightsheepish:

Well shoot, now I'm just curious. You postin' these anywhere?

I'm just waiting for River to meet Pinkie so the two of them can have conversations that absolutely no one else can comprehend :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Well, we know River's a telepath... If looking into Pinkie's endless vortex of a mind doesn't drive her insane(-er), then we'll be getting some pretty interesting insights...


Yeah, well, sorry. Don't worry though, the next chapter totally doesn't include any cliffhangers. Really.

Yes, the next chapter is already in the works, so you can expect that... Soon. College starts tomorrow (read: in nine hour's time) though, but I'll try not to let that bog me down. That's right, I'm putting in extra effort just for you folk!

So, as usual: Comment, critique and suggest ideas.

Also, a random question: Which members of the Serenity crew would you pair with which ponies, and why?
I'm never going to actually ship crew members with ponies... Unless I get desperate, of course.

Awesome work.
And I say pair the funny one with Pinkie

You mean Wash? Although personally, I'd like to see pinkie and River meet... :pinkiegasp:

"The ship been damaged in the crash..."
The ship had been damaged.
Nice work Trachyon and trust me you DON'T want to completely stress out over college. So good luck and I shall await the next chapter.:twilightsmile:

Pinkie can physically resist unicorn magic. This really needs to be canon.

Got it fixed, and thanks!
And I'm sure having seven days to write a 5000 word essay on the formation of stars won't be a detriment to my psychological state at all.
See now, this is why humanity invented what I like to call "Coffee binging."

Pinkie Pie is AMAZING. And beyond any explanation- her scene with Twilight was perfect.

And I find myself wishing these chapters were longer... The fact this story is making me impatient means you're doing it right, so keep up the good work!
