Fic: Keeping Christmas

I found this story when I was looking for something else on my hard drive. I wrote it back in 2003 for a gift zine for a friend. I think the period of exclusivity has long passed, so I thought I'd share it as a holiday present for Firefly fans. Any lines that have eerie echoes to the movie Serenity are purely coincidental (or else a sign that I really nailed the characterization).

Title: Keeping Christmas
Rating: PG at worst (very tame)
Characters/Pairing: gen, whole cast (ensemble), not really shippy (no more than the series itself)
Summary: The crew wants to have Christmas, but Mal wants to do business. River has a plan.

Set a few days after "Objects in Space" (pretending that since that episode originally aired near Christmas and mentioned Santa, the episode actually took place around Christmas)

Fake cut to a rather long story
