Words: 488

Summary: Danny meet a girl in the Pliocene era.
Author's Notes: This is a joint birthday fic for kerry_louise and mysteriousaliwz .  I don't know if you know of Firefly, Kerry but I hope this okay. If not, just lemme know.  Beta'd by fredbassett but any mistakes or errors are all me.  Enjoy.

He had been alone for a long time now.

There was no one else in this era that he could hold a descent conversation with, except maybe the stick.

It was a good stick. It was thick, sturdy and very useful, not just as a weapon, but for all kinds of things.  Now, at this very moment, it was a very handy thing to talk to.


He must be going mad.

He was talking to his stick.

“She’s called Molly.”

Danny looked away from his stick and blinked as the rays of the sun nearly blinded him.  He really was going mad, because crouching down in front of him, smiling so sweetly, was a girl.  This was no Australopithecus like the others Helen Cutter had nearly wiped out.

She was human. She had long black hair, but it was all scraggly and tangled.  She was pale, not tanned or burnt like others, in fact she hardly looked as if she had spent any time in the sun at all. She certainly didn’t belong here because she was a wearing a flimsy light blue dress, its trails flowing around her legs like wisps of gossamer. She was also wearing thick black boots.

Danny smiled. She had come through the anomaly.  She must have.  Or at the very least another one.

“Molly. She wants to be called that.” The girl pointed to the stick and angled her head as she touched at the knobbled edges. “That’s her name.”

“Is it yours?” Danny asked.

She laughed. It was like music.

“No! This girl is the water…the pure clear water that brings life.”

Danny looked to where she pointed and understood instantly as he spotted the water just at the bottom of the slope.

“Stream? What kind of a name is that?”

The girl made a face. “You’re a boob.”

“Hey, I talk to my stick. I’ve been on my own. Go figure.”

The girl in the blue dress nodded in understanding and patted at his wild out grown hair.

“Molly really appreciates it, but you don’t have to be alone for long. You will see your friends again. You will find your brother.”

Who was this girl? Where did she come from?

She was more than odd, but she intrigued him. Danny wanted to know more, but before he could say a thing, again the River girl patted his head and gently shushed him, as if he was the child.

“Patrick and Danny will find each other, but not with me. You’ll find your own serenity. For now, Molly will suffice. She will be your rock.”

Then, just as quickly as she appeared, the girl in the blue dress vanished and Danny Quinn was left on his own. Quite why she had come to him, or talked to him, he didn’t know, but she had given him hope.

She had also given him Molly.

Not only do I know (and love!) Firefly, but River is my very favourite character! I may have squee'd slightly ridiculously over this as a result... I'm sure you'll forgive my flailing ;) *smishes*

Oh thank goodness!! I knew that Ali liked Firefly, but I didn't know if you did! But I know you like Danny.

I'm so pleased that you liked this! YAY! So, happy belated birthday! XD

Thanks for the lovely pressie m'dear! I love River christening Molly for him. And calling him a boob is so River :)

I have been notoriously bad at getting presents to people on time (and haven't been too productive on the writing side for ages either), so I'm delighted to get a pressie fic whether it's late or not :)

Good crossover. (I don't know Firefly that well, but enough to know who River is.)

You've captured River perfectly in this! As ethereal as ever.

And her naming Molly fits so perfectly.

Love this crossover! I love the fact that she gave him the name for his stick. Awesome!
basched From: basched Date: May 27th, 2013 09:47 am (UTC) (Link)

Thanks! River had to help with the name!

Glad you enjoyed. :)

That's such a cool idea for a crossover! I love River and the fact she was the one who named Molly is fabulous. :D

Thanks lass! I was quite pleased with this one. Glad you liked it. :)

I like the idea of River as Danny's - I'm not sure what - non-imaginary friend?
basched From: basched Date: June 3rd, 2013 11:44 am (UTC) (Link)

I liked the idea too, but as for her actually being there...or not? That's up to you.

Thanks for reading! :)
