They get [[CurbStompBattle plastered.]] Either Ott isn't GenreSavvy enough, or River simply absorbed all of their kung fu through proximity.

** Also in Unfinished Business, where Mal gets uncomfortable because the job goes exactly as planned. [[spoiler: Things get worse.]]



** In "Charity" Mal tries to be {{Genre Savvy}} and keeps his mouth shut about how narrow their escape was. It doesn't work.

* ActorAllusion: Wash asks if River is a [[TheSarahConnorChronicles robot from the future]]. Don't forget Mal [[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog wielding a sledgehammer]], or Mal and Jayne going by the aliases [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Buck and Dutch]].

** The author is a ''huge'' fan of Creator/SummerGlau. It shows; River is often one of the dominant characters, and there are several scenes where River is naked or her sexuality is explored. As the author says himself, "She's easily my favorite character, and she's such a versitale walking plot device that I can't ''help'' but play with her." Aside from the fact that ''this'' story is partially River-centric, the author's also written several ''[[TheSarahConnorChronicles T:SCC]]'' stories focusing on Cameron and Allison Young as well as a ''T:SCC'' and ''Mass Effect'' crossover involving Cameron.

* FragileSpeedster[=/=]GlassCannon: The author describes River as this, in an effort to prevent her from being a GodModeSue. She is very fast, very acrobatic, very deadly, but one good hit will stop her. The problem is scoring the hit.

* GlassCannon: the author's portrayal of River emphasizes this, pointing out that while being supremely agile and dangerous, one solid hit is all it takes to put River down. She gets tougher as the story progresses, but is still vulnerable to things like broken bones.

Notable for strong characterization, believable character development, and a wide, overarching plot arc. General consensus among the reviewers has that the story captures the ''Firefly'' essence very well, with many of the reviewers comparing the writing favorably to JossWhedon's own.
