Fic challenge for 2014 #9 ~ A Scimitar to Break a Ninjatō? (written for femslash100)


     this was written for the femslash100  prompt #396: Unbreakable.

Title: A Scimitar to Break a Ninjatō?
Author: kerkevi
Fandom: Firefly
Characters: Inara Serra; River Tam; Inara/River
Rating: PG-13
A/N: from wikipedia ~ The Ninjato (忍者刀 ninjatō?), also known as ninjaken (忍者剣?) or shinobigatana (忍刀?),[2] is the most common name for the sword that the ninja of feudal Japan are portrayed to have carried.
Summary: Inara reminisces about River, and ponders a hard truth

  They talked of nothing but Mal in the house; pirate; rogue; the man she fled.

  But she remembered a girl; still buried beneath the cold steel weapon into which a child had been fashioned.

  Who came to a woman trained like her to understand what being a woman meant, in all it's aspects.

  She knew Zoe's way all too well, and Kaylee's was to be learned watching, and studying.

  But Inara remembered the touches that so easily could have taken her from this life; understood one thing above all; River Tam was far from unbreakable.

  For she knew them as well.

   Goddess watch over us all,
   'tis ok to be Takei,
