PLOTS IN THE WORKS
In an effort to limit the number of incomplete stories posted
to the site, a working outline will be created first. Hopefully, this
method will result in a quicker update schedule.
With this in mind, this section of the site is where you will find a
listing of stories in the process of being outlined. A listing of stories only!
There are no actual stories posted in this section. Any messages sent to
me stating a story link do not work in this section will be ignored.
To get a general idea of how soon I may begin writing a story, check
the status of the story listed below. In addition, as this is
technically the brainstorming phase of my stories, the working title
and the early synopsis are subject to change.
STORIES BEING OUTLINED
- WORKING TITLE Belly of the Beast
- FANDOM Stargate SG-1
- SERIAL #4 in the Secrets series
- EARLY SYNOPSIS Daniel's fragile world shatters when
he comes face to face with his past.
- AUTHOR NOTES Secrets is a multi-chapter series I began
back in the late 1990s. The first three chapters of this series are under
review for any minor edits or possible rewrites. The outcome will determine
if the first draft of this chapter needs to be completely rewritten or not.
We'll see how it goes.
- WORKING TITLE Evolution I
- FANDOM Doctor Who
- SERIAL #1 in the Forged Bonds series
- EARLY SYNOPSIS The Tardis malfunctions, yet again,
and lands The Doctor and his companions on planet Rygal, where its
inhabitants everyday life threatens their entire existence.
- AUTHOR NOTES The main outline for this entire series
is almost complete. So far, there are seven chapters and four interludes
planned out. But that's just the bare bones for the main plot. Now, it's
time to start ironing out the individual chapters. The plot bunny for this
one seems to be quite active.
- WORKING TITLE Ripples in the Sand
- FANDOM Stargate SG-1
- SERIAL #2 in the Footsteps series
- EARLY SYNOPSIS SGC personnel try to lend a hand
when they notice Daniel having difficulty coping with his new found
- AUTHOR NOTES This was actually written years ago,
but was never made public. I felt there was something missing from the
previous version, but I just couldn't figure out what was missing. So,
I'm starting over. Maybe that missing piece will fall into place this
time around. We'll see how it goes.
- WORKING TITLE Stone Pillars of Forgotten Time
- FANDOM Stargate SG-1
- EARLY SYNOPSIS After escaping Sokar's prison moon,
the return trip home is waylaid when SG-1 and their fellow Tok'ra escapees
must make an emergency landing on an unknown planet where they soon
uncover a deadly threat known only to have existed on Earth.
- AUTHOR NOTES Chronicles events that take place
immediately following the season four episode The Devil You Know.
This is turning into a major research project as I have to make sure
that the historical references (e.g. dates, names, places, etc.) used
in the story are somewhat, or as close to, accurate as I can get.
The good news, however, is that the outline, itself, is coming along
fairly well. Therefore, once I'm done with all the research, I should be
able to crank this one out quicker than the other stories. *hopefully*
- WORKING TITLE A Funny Thing, That Love Is
- FANDOM Gundam Wing
- EARLY SYNOPSIS A love story unfolds
- AUTHOR NOTES Beginning as a One Shot, but may
evolve into a series. I haven't decided yet.
- WORKING TITLE Love Jones
- FANDOM Tenchi Muyo
- EARLY SYNOPSIS Villains and enemies, old and new,
disrupt the lives of the Masaki household as new bonds and relationships
- AUTHOR NOTES The original outline for this
multi-chapter story has been scrapped. The main plot is fine. However,
this monster had so many subplots and plot twists in its planning that
I started to confuse myself. It's a small miracle that I never made
the first drafts of this story public as there is no doubt I would have
written myself right into a black hole. A fairly narrow dodge there my
friends since those first drafts were supposed to be posted some
years back. Therefore, I'm starting over to smooth out the kinks and make
sure there are no major plot holes in the mix this time around.
- WORKING TITLE Velvet Rose
- FANDOM Original Fiction
- EARLY SYNOPSIS Meet Jarod, a young up-and-coming artist
on the verge of hitting it big with latent psychic abilities; and his elder
brother Benjamin, an arrogant, trigger happy, undercover detective on the
metropolitan police force. It's been three years since the brothers last spoke.
However, when Ben's next assignment has him seeking out Jarod's assistance, he
stumbles upon something that not only turns his world upside down, but could
also hold devastating consequences for his younger brother.
- AUTHOR NOTES Another multi-chapter story where the
original outline has been scrapped. I began working on this one back in
2002, but stopped when I realized I had written myself into that infamous
black hole of death. The original plotline had Ben and Jarod as childhood
friends. However, their long time friendship became strained over time.
The strained friendship angle just wasn't working for me. Therefore, I've
decided to make them brothers instead, which seems to be working out better,
so far. Here's hoping it continues that way.
