I Love Writing Fan Fiction. Take a Look at My Projects, and Dive In!

I really love writing fan fiction. It helps stretch my creative writing wings, and challenges me to stay in the voice of characters not of my own creation. That can be very difficult sometimes.

The Candle in the Window

Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell, convicted murderer, is released from Fox River Prison to help Michael Scofield, whom he once swore a blood feud against, in Scofield's efforts to bring to justice one "Poseidon," the CIA spook who incarcerated him and married his beloved, Sara Tancredi. Scofield even funds a new prosthetic hand for T-Bag, a beyond-the-top-of-the-line marvel that behaves just like any normal one but is many times stronger.

But that isn't the greatest gift Scofield gives him. For T-Bag has a son, one he never knew he had. David--"Whip"--had been Scofield's cellmate while both languished for the past five years in a brutal prison in Yemen.

The plan is hatched, the play unfolds, and David dies just days after Theodore finds out about him. Enraged, he once again lets the demon light the candle in the window of his soul, and kills the CIA spook responsible.

We leave Theodore Bagwell in his cell back in Fox River. His new cellmate is none other than Poseidon himself. This is where we rejoin him and his efforts at redemption. This is where the candle in the window waits to be re-lit.

Status of story: 5 chapters completed.

Left alone after his father and brothers die in the Second Ogres war, and after his mother perishes from illness, he retreats into his family's big home far from anywhere.

It's a Gift that will be a great blessing to he or she destined to receive it. Walking home, he has no idea just how powerful that Gift is--or the individual who, unbeknownst to him, will soon try to claim it.

Thrace McCoy

He's the troubled grandson of a Federation legend,
Admiral Leonard McCoy, who served as Chief Medical Officer
aboard the Enterprise and is recently deceased.
He's got big shoes to fill, but no desire whatsoever to fill them.

His father and mother divorced when he was nine.
He has no other siblings. His father is human,
whereabouts unknown; his mother Vulcan. She resides there,
a Federation mathematician who only occasionally bothers contacting him.

His temper and his inhuman strength, along with his smarts,
keep landing him in penal colonies. This latest send-up, however,
is likely permanent, for he was convicted of murdering a Federation officer
who was on leave. A Vulcan.

Sitting in a cell in a penal colony on Mars,
Thrace McCoy doesn't know it, but his life is about to change--radically.

Status of story: 2 chapters completed.

Aaron, the bassist, and Knox, the drummer.

On the verge of adulthood, she is wondering:
Can she play the game of life too? Read on!

 The Truly Good Place

Eleanor Shellstrop is supposed to be dead.
No, doubly dead.
She died on Earth,
went to what she was told was the Good Place,
went through all sorts of bullshirt with her new friends
as they found out it wasn't the Good Place but the Bad Place,
and finally got admitted into the real Good Place.
Except it wasn't. Again.

    Long story short,
there is a door in the Good Place,
one which, if walked through,
will dissolve you from reality forever.
The Oblivion Door.
One by one, her friends and her lover,
Chidi, walked through it. So did she.

    But she isn't dead.

    Holy motherforking shirtballs!
