If you are a fan of Firefly or Harry Potter

Or, especially, a fan of both, as I am, you should absolutely read this story.

Browncoat, Green Eyes by nonjon

COMPLETE. Firefly: :Harry Potter crossover Post Serenity. Two years have passed since the secret of the planet Miranda got broadcast across the whole 'verse in 2518. The crew of Serenity finally hires a new pilot, but he's a bit peculiar.

Crossover - Harry Potter & Firefly - Rated: M - English - Adventure - Chapters: 39 - Words: 292,520 - Reviews: 3398 - Updated: 11-12-06 - Published: 3-23-06 - Harry P. & River - Complete

I found this story recommended on FictionAlley as a story where you don't have to know both worlds to read and enjoy the crossover- and it really, really is. It helps, of course, to know both going into it- and a knowledge of the Harry Potter series is useful, as is some knowledge of River's backstory and issues in Firefly (as well as knowledge of who and what the Alliance is), but nonjon has created a complete and fulfilling story that makes sense without knowledge of either.

More importantly, it's a compelling tale about Harry fitting in with the crew of Serenity and seeking out whatever may be left of the wizarding world, and of River finding herself and working through what has been done to her. There's a heavier focus on Harry's struggle, but River's story is interwoven and tied to that, and all of the characters get their moments to shine. Even the minor characters get their moments of awesome, including one who I particularly adore- Antonio Weatherby- who seems like just some guy who will probably not reappear after his first scene, but later on proves to be more than he initially seems in very believable ways.
