THE Inara/Kaylee fic post.

Inara/Kaylee is practically canon in "The Train Job" and "Serenity" (the episode), so I am surprised and saddened that there is so little fic for it. I mean, the 'ship doesn't even have its own LJ comm.

I read everything I could find a few months ago and was dissatisfied with both the quality and quantity. I'd seen a bunch more fics recently, which I bookmarked to read, and at some point I had the bright idea to catalog all of said fic.

Dec. 31, 2005, I trawled through Firefly's Glow (Populli), ff_shiprecs, fireflygirls, femslash_santa, serenity_santa, fireflyslash, ruttingtownhall, femslash100, slashthedrabble, and the ship_manifesto. I've been checking back on the comms as I've worked on this entry, but if there's any Inara/Kaylee fic I've missed, recent or old, please let me know. And yes, I do intend to keep this list updated. I figure now that I've made a list I just have to watch femslash_today to stay updated.

In alphabetical order by title. Fics containing spoilers for the Serenity movie are so noted.

[Edit: Firefly's Glow gives length in 60k, 4k, etc., and I have no idea what that translates into, so I plugged all the un-wordcounted fics into a wordcounter. Said wordcounts are indicated as ~x words in square brackets.]

I frequently read stories I've seen recced somewhere and been underwhelmed, so I tried to be even-handed in my blurbing. (Though the effort -- and slogging through lots of mediocre fic generally -- tempted me to do a snarktastic version.)
