I just finished watching Firefly the other day, and am going to watch Serenity this, this is amazing. River is so complex. So much to her. And this totally captures that. Amazing job by you.

Thanks! I'm a big fan myself, and I really wanted to capture all the different aspects of what make River so great. I'm happy to hear you feel I succeeded.

little girl lost...within her own mind
dark twisting maze, a whisper in time
found by her brother...who sacrificed all
a new family of sorts in between stars
