Dec 21, Firefly, No Pairing, Chaos Title: Chaos Fandom: Firefly Pairing/Characters: River Rating/Warnings: G Disclaimer:here Prompt: #21 – Christmas twine Summary: River ponders an unusual string.
The red and green string was impractical. While it was sturdy and could be used to secure one's belongings, the colors were bright. Garish. They called attention to themselves. Perhaps that was okay for the colors, but when River had belongings to secure, she wished them to go unnoticed. Being invisible was nearly always the optimum choice.
Perhaps it was like the ice planet. Something not primarily meant to be functional. She tied a knot in it. Then another. The rotational pattern of the colors actually worked quite nicely if she knotted them just so, modeling a compelling three-dimensional fractal.
