Fic: Other Paths (Dune, PG13)

I've been writing Dune-related things for Multiverse 2009. That put me in the mood to write this little snippet, which is nowhere near as scary as it should be.

Title: Other Paths
Rating: PG13
Word Count: Around three hundred words
Notes: Quote taken from Dune Messiah.

The audacious nature of Muad'dib's actions may be seen in the fact that He knew from the beginning whither He was bound, yet not once did He step aside from that path. He put it clearly when He said: "I tell you that I come now to my time of testing when it will be shown that I am the Ultimate Servant." Thus He weaves all into One, that both friend and foe may worship Him. It is for this reason and this reason only that His Apostles prayed: "Lord, save us from the other paths which Muad'dib covered with the Waters of His Life." Those "other paths" may be imagined only with the deepest revulsion.
-from The Yiam-el-Din (Book of Judgement)

Beta request

Maybe I should scrap this one. I don't know. But at least it's one possible rendering of the idea, and I'd like to make it posteable. It's a Dune/Firefly crossover for Multiverse 2009, PG13, four hundred words long.

Help would be most appreciated.
