Story:Even in the darkness, sometimes the path is clear.
Summary: From River's POV, as she senses it all but is powerless to explain her understanding. Simon wonders why he can't stay away from Mal. Mal wonders why he can't resist Simon's looks even though he knows the boy is trouble.
They'll do anything to touch...anything. What they have is the brightest spark they can hold on to. River gets in the way despite herself. In the end, Mal decides that if River's issues are the only price he has to pay to be with Simon, then Simon's worth it.
The truth is, I wish I were a better writer, because there's an entire fic or series about family and loyalty and emotional baggage/ owning your decisions here that I can see so clearly. Heavy overtones of possession and trust issues. (Go figure!) lol Any takers?
