Tales From The War : Author's Notes and Timeline

current mood: accomplished

Tales from the War is going to be an odd series, I warn you now.

It's an idea I've had rattling around in my brain for some time now, for a background against which to set a number of interesting vigettes or scenes. Taking the simple premise of 'What if the Scoobies had failed to save Dawn?' and extrapolating it further into a truly massive number of possible crossovers.

The basic structure will always be a short 500-1000 word ficlet, featuring one character or a group's limited knowledge of what's happening, as they struggle to come to terms with the fact that the world has changed around them. Anyone can show up at any time.

I have an idea of where the main story thrust is going, and I know the fates of most people, but don't expect me to give that all away to start with. *grins* The first four ficlets will be posted daily this week, and hopefully should give an indication of where I'm going with this. Hopefully.

I'll be fascinated to hear your thoughts.

Nice idea!

Can I put in a request for the Bartlett administration's reactions at some point?

That Is One Hell Of An Idea

Other than SG-1 have you any idea what Xovers you'll be using?

Current plans call for the one and only Marvel crossover on Friday, the Doctor Who ficlet on Thurs, and I'm not giving away any of the other surprises just yet.

This looks freaking awesome. Will Mulder and Scully be putting in appearances?

I have considered them certainly. After all, wouldn't Scully just be superb working alongside Dr Janet Frasier?
