"We all want the same thing here," said Picard to the Maqui. "There's no need for violence."

"Really?" said Mal and shot the Alliance officer. No loss to the 'verse. Although maybe the bastard would have been useful when the Reavers overpowered Mal, too quick, too many (and too organized, said a disbelieving part of his brain) for him to even be able to kill himself. They didn't eat him. Instead, they injected him with some sort of bubbly green substance filled with metal specks. Then the voices in his head began.

"Great," said Rodney, seeing another Wraithfied Genii being taken past his cell. If what he could see was an accurate sample, the Wraith expansion project was proceeding exponentially. It made no sense for the Wraith to do that, but little had been making sense since they had accidentally activated the Ancient quantum merging device. There had been no obvious effect at first, but then everything had just gone crazier than usual; the galaxy was almost overrun with Wraith, and he shared a cell with a very scary girl who kept saying that it was all his fault. When she talked at all.

River closed her eyes, searching through the chorus of triplicate voices in her head for the only one that made sense, that could help her get back Serenity and the Captain and everything else. The one that called itself Q.

.finis.

Oh my god.
OMG MARS!!
Ok, I totally hate you for making Rodney the cause of the fuck-up (though I guess it isn't completely his fault, if the stupid Alterans just couldn't label their stupidly dangerous machines well) but, oh dear Joss, I loved this beyond the telling of it.
I just don't get how you can write 200 freaking words and give us this, obviously-novel-length complex story. I mean, just with this I'm completely imagining the in between scenes, the first odd glimpses of the universes merging; River talking to Q (and obviously managing to convince him to help); Jean-Luc leading some freaking bad-ass rag-tag group of prisoners and getting hurt in the process only to be saved at the last second by Q; Rodney having to deal face to face with his fuck-up, and only getting it, not when pushed by humans or Wraith, but by seeing someone he loves getting hurt; Mal, gone so far beyond mind-fucked on the Genii-Wraith enhancers, and still managing to cling to some part of his humanity; Todd being there and not fighting on the side of the Wraith (and kicking a whole lot of evil backsides as well)...
Sorry, but I swear all that I just wrote above? I "glimpsed" in between this 200 words, and for that you're awesome, cause I'd never would have even thought about this possibility.
You rock.

:D

To be fair, in the 200 words there are just 200 words. All the other stuff (and some of the stuff in the 200 words) is yours. Which is an example of one of the 300 reasons why I like fanning with you.
