Simon Drabble

Simon drabble because woman_of_made me :-)

Title: Ethics
Author: Aurey09
Character: Simon
Number: 12/100
Timeline: Ariel/Trash

Simon’s old ethics don’t quite work out here, nothing’s clear. His new moral code is based on doing the opposite to what Jayne does.

He told Jayne he wouldn’t hurt him and he meant it. Saving lives is so deeply ingrained in him that while Jayne was waiting for the Feds, he’d been saving a man’s life.

“Also, I can kill you with my brain.”

He waits outside for River. “Do you think he believed you?”

“I do - believed it when I said it.” She stares off into space, seeing thing he can’t - knows what people can do.

Thanks. It was one of those things I wrote really quickly, it helped that I was given a theme and a situation as well as a character that had to be in the drabble.

Thanks, it was one of those drabbles that I felt more confident while writing it.

My challenge was to have a Simon drabble. That deals with ethics and how he'd deal with having someone's life in his hands who could be a possible threat to River in the future.

That will always be a very difficult dilemma for Simon. He's not the type to give up any life, but at the same time if there's one person he'd kill for, it's his sister.
