Review of chapter "Picture of Health" from (Past Donor)DreamSmith
Review:
Hm.
Well, this is almost too much crazy for me, despite my love of crazy.
Still, Mal is the kind of person who could adjust and deal and live life as best he's able, despite all of this, and I like that he's learned to lean on River; that she's his link to the non-crazy 'verse.

Did you ever read the (early) Xanth books?
This reminds me of... Dor, I think was his name; the magician who could speak to inanimate objects.

Oh, and I couldn't help wishing this had turned into Mal/River.
Sigh.

Review of chapter "Picture of Health" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Excellent stuff. Great ending for the senior Tam, awesome look at a hyper-aware Mal. Nice knowing he's absorbed 'proven advantages' in line with River's even in the midst of chaos :D

Review of chapter "Picture of Health" from Specks
Review:
I adore your writing and this piece is no exception. You have the cadence of Mal's thoughts and his tone down perfectly. Despite describing what can be percieved as crazy, he still sounds perfectly reasonable. Perfectly Mal. And I love how you tied in the opening song. Bravo!

Review of chapter "Picture of Health" from SilverRose
Review:
*shivers* This was creepy in a really good way. Mal being River-crazy ain't something I've ever considered. You told it very well here. Excellent good :-)

Review of chapter "Picture of Health" from (Past Donor)Charlotte
Review:
I am in awe. Mal's voice was perfect, as crazy as it was. River being his interpreter was brilliant. It all played out in my head as I read it. Cool beans!

Review of chapter "Picture of Health" from Nezzi
Review:
Let me start off saying that I've read A LOT of fic- maybe too much- but this is one of the best I've had the pleasure of reading. This is a creative and beautifully written piece and I would love to see the continuation of this story line. Please consider it.

Review of chapter "Picture of Health" from nimthecat
Review:
*stares*
I can't believe this! prequel, sequel, expansion, anything! Mal speaking in riddles with river the only one to understand him... tam senior selling them out and then killed by the operative... kaylee's dress talking... all this needs is the operative himself joining the serenity!

Review of chapter "Picture of Health" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Now why can I just SEE all of this happening? Gives me the shivers, in good and bad ways. You write Mal extremely well, and I could just hear Nathan Fillion narrating this.

Beautifully done, thank you for sharing it!

Edited to add that I love the touch about Mal's brown coat. Yeah, that would have some tales to tell as he couldn't bear to hear after having lived them.

Review of chapter "Picture of Health" from periskyye
Review:
That was awesome!

I like this Mal, and I like that he's "still flying," even after everything. It would be really interesting to see this Mal from Zoe's point of view.

Review:
This was amazing. I would love to read the backstory to this, or see a continuation when you have the time and inclination. I loved it.

Review of chapter "Picture of Health" from RevDorothyL
Review:
THIS is the most intriguing and believable short "Firefly" (post-Serenity) fic I think I've ever read. I LOVE the idea of another misguided (to put it no more harshly than that) PAX experiment heightening Mal's inherent affinity for his ship to the point where he can now hear the muttered 'thoughts' of all the inanimate objects around him and only speak in ancient biblical quotes. I wouldn't wish for Mal to suffer any more than he has already, of course, but what I love is that -- once again -- he gets back up and keeps on flying, and finds a way to keep being himself and looking out for his family out in the black.

Thank you for 'experimenting' with Mal so poetically.
