Summary: Jayne is left all alone with a bad leg and a crazy girl for two days. It doesn't go as badly as it could.
Why: I have a huge weakness for the Jayne/River pairing, but it's really difficult to find good fic for them, as you might imagine. That's what initially drew me to this series. This is top-rate Jayne/River, without a doubt. The characterization is wonderful, the development of the relationship takes just as much time as might actually needed for such an unlikely pair, and just because it's Jayne and River-centric doesn't mean that the other characters are neglected. The plot in this series runs parallel to the later parts of the actual series, but reshapes events based on the new relationships that have developed, which I also found very interesting.

Even if you're not a fan of the Jayne/River pairing, I'd recommend that you read at least the first two stories, "Two Gorram Days" and "Kinship" which are very enjoyable without being at all shippy. And if you enjoy those, maybe you could even give the rest of the series a try! It really is worth it.

Also, just so you're aware, "Prodigal," the final story in the series is still a WIP (I know, I'm breaking my own rules). However, it doesn't leave things at a cliffhanger and is still being worked on as far as I know, so there's no need to worry too much about that aspect.
