Warnings: 18+ for slash, series-specific violence, alpha/dom!Mal,sub!Simon, dominance/submission, mature imagery

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.

"I really enjoyed the disjointed editing. It fit the song perfectly. I thought the use of River was great. She added a ghostly/etheral quality to the video (which may or may not have been the intention) that contrasted well with the very visceral storyline happening between Mal and Simon. " - Lori, BtH Awards, R4

"The song you chose for this video worked very well in setting the overall feel of the video. Unfortunately there were not enough entries to judge on best slash but that category has been added to the next round. I don’t know what inspired you to create a Mal / Simon pairing but you did it in a way that seemed natural and not a pairing you were trying to force a video out of. I liked the addition of River and I think this is what made it different from other slash videos." - Mazza, COA, R46
