#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

You can learn all the math in the ‘verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down, tells you she’s hurting before she keens. Makes her a home. [x]
