''[[http://www.fireflyfans.net/fulluserbluesunlist.asp?un=Sweetalker Name]]'' is a ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' fanfic series, beginning about 16 years before the events that occur in the pilot episode ''Serenity''. The series originally ended with "My Name Is FINAL" (hence the title, probably), but fans insisted on continuation. The author recently confirmed that as-yet-unpublished chapters will stretch far beyond the ''Serenity'' movie.

Unique in that the primary character of ''Name'' never actually reveals her name, and is in fact given new names fairly often throughout the series.

Written by the author of the {{Series/Firefly}} {{fanfic}} ''This Is Not A Fanfic'', notable for being banned from Fanfiction.org. Twice.

Now being made into a ''[[http://fireflyname.webs.com motion comic series]]'', presumably by the original author.

Most of the story takes place in House Madrassa, a Companion training facility. (Although early on it seemed that the unnamed primary character was Inara, {{Word of God}} says that she will grow up to be Saffron.)

Some chapters have been known to disappear and reappear, and the following links have been heavily edited, but a good Google search should help you find the originals:

[[SpoileredRotten Spoilers abound below.]]


'''This fanfic provides examples of:'''

* ActorAllusion: Inara's parents' names, Monren and Veta Serra, are taken from actress Morena Baccarin's first name and her mother's name, Vera Setta. Age differences were carefully researched; when there was no [[WordofGod WOG]] on official birthdates, the author used ''the actors''' birthdates for reference.
* AntiHero
* AscendedExtra: Pretty much any character given lines in the original series eventually shows up.
* BeneathNotice: Tweeny gets away with living upstairs, thanks to her status as "unworthy".
* BreakTheCutie
* EnfanteTerrible
* Foreshadowing : Lots of clever bits that {{Series/Firefly}} fans recognize.
* FunetikAksent : Cook.
* LoveTriangle
* MeaningfulRename
* MouthyKid: Bibi.
* RagsToRiches but only briefly.
* RevengeByProxy: Tweeny's offer of friendship to Inara.
** This troper would like some of that root, whatever it is. Not for me. [[BlatantLies For a friend of mine.]]
* RichesToRags: Loss of parents - and a scheming greedy guardian - will do that to a girl.
* SamaritanRelationshipStarter: If she's ever been in danger with 'em, you can bet sparks are a flyin'.([[spoiler: Inara. Haymer. Jessup. Nandi, even, in a way.]])
* SheCleansUpNicely: Subverted quite a bit in "SHADE".
* StalkerWithACrush: Tweeny's crush [[spoiler: on Inara]]
* SurvivalMantra: ''They carry the telltale signs of your mind.''
* StoicWoobie: Tweeny, arguably.
* TellMeAboutMyFather. Though there's never really much mentioned, is there?
* TyrantTakesTheHelm: Diana. Also probably Ganna, to a [[BaitAndSwitchTyrant lesser extent.]] Even Recorder says that Ganna has everyone's best interests at heart. Dianna not so much.
* WifeHusbandry: The possible reason why this fic keeps getting banned.
