This was going to be much different, and longer, but I got lazy.

Zoe knows it's silly, but sometimes she finds herself singing bits of songs to her baby. Songs that she learned in the war, and wordless hums of lullabies that she remembers her mother singing. Not like it can hear her- she's not too far along, according to Simon, but she's far enough that Mal's banned her from jobs, that she can feel the swell of her stomach. So when she's alone in her bunk, she sings, just a little.

When she sings songs that Wash had sang, for no other reason than to make her laugh, she almost cries, but that's fine. No one there to see her, not anymore.

Oh, man, part of me wishes this was longer, and the rest of me thinks this is just painful and perfect as it is. Guh <3

Actually, I think if this had been longer, it wouldn't have been as sad? It wasn't shaping up to be, at any rate.

But thank you so much!
