#and the baby would have brought everyone on the ship together so much more as well#simon and zoe would have a bond as doctor and patient#she’d go to him to check up on the pregnancy more than she’d ever admit to wash#because it’s a big adjustment to be vulnerable - but simon would keep that private#and river would have a connection to the baby because she’s psychic - she’d always know what the baby needed#i can imagine her sat in the background of zoe/wash trying to stop him/her crying and just calmly saying ‘he wants food’ or w/e#and wash would use river’s help when looking after the tiny baby alone because he’d be nervous#at least at first #by the time the baby was bigger they’d trust river with the baby#i just feel like river has so much love in her heart and because of what happened no one treats her as an equal#she’s fragile but there’d finally be something more vulnerable on the ship than river - and i think that’d be freeing to simon as well#you’d have kaylee fussing over the child and being a goofball with wash trying to keep it entertained#meanwhile inara mal and zoe would be drinking wine and talking like grownups and they’d be zoe’s escape#mal would be crazy in love with the child but only show it when they’re alone together#sometimes kaylee would catch him but she’d never say a word#and book would read for hours to the baby - always calming him and he’d be on babysitting duties during a job#and jayne would teach him about guns until zoe found out and insisted she be the one to teach him about guns#okay go on without me

#firefly #SHUT YOUR ENTIRE FACE THE ACTUAL FUCK UP #mal and jayne answering pretend phones and wearing tiaras at tea parties #mal looking slightly hunted when he’s caught in the act #jayne being totally unembarrassed #because when a toddler gives you a pretend phone you answer that shit #inara teaching him the Correct Way to Pour (Imaginary) Tea #and then pretending to be a dinosaur for 2 hours #river is the best at dinosaurs #simon is terrible so he is a herbivore #and river and the kid chase and eat him #it ends this way every single time
