Third Annual Blogger Costume Party

The theme this year is Firefly. Our tale begins as Captain Reynolds, his loyal first mate, and Layne try to appease a crowd of bar patrons who are mighty peeved at their refusal to join in the festivities celebrating the birthday of Misha I, emperor of the Blogger Alliance.

The ship's mechanic knows better than to pick fights with Loyal Citizens. She stays at her post aboard Serenity - and hopes that Simon remembers to bring the fresh strawberries.

Here comes Simon now. He's looking cheerful.

Serenity takes off for the border world Persephone, in hopes of finding a cargo job through Badger, their old occasional business associate. Badger is unavailable, but his brother Possum approaches Captain Reynolds with an offer to smuggle black market beagles to the planet Sullivan.

This business has its risks. After taking the cargo, Serenity is shortly intercepted by the Alliance cruiser Dallas. Reynolds hides the beagles in empty crates left over from their previous run, a shipment of blenders, and docks with the Dallas. The captain is satisfied with the inspection, especially after receiving some complimentary football tickets and Inara's phone number.

Ah, but someone else wants to snoop around - one of those mysterious blue-gloved agents relentlessly in pursuit of River Tam.

Fortunately, River is nowhere aboard - she's sharing funny stories with some guy at a Star Trek convention on Beaumonde.
