Believe it or not. I've only started to write fiction since May 2010. It was supposed to carry me through the summer. Not only am I still writing, I've even started writing original stories in July. I like to think I have a style, but I don't have a clue, however I do try to be true to myself. So long as someone reads my work, I will continue to write. I am really grateful that websites like Fanfiction exists.
Oddly enough an analysis of my collected writing showed that I write like Kurt Vonnegut. I've never read him before. I guess I should now.
Here are some samples of my writing that can be found online.
Remember Me (Fringe TV series) - Inspired by the casting news for Olivia's alternate universe mother. I imagined how they would meet and what they might say to each other. I made up the name Ellen by researching the names Olivia, Rachel and Ella. It's interesting to note that I didn't know who was cast to play her at the time, but the character is still faithful to the show.
Someone to Belong With (Fringe TV series) - Prompted to write a sequel to Remember Me, after Olivia crosses back to her own universe.
The Promise (Fringe TV series) - Inspired by watching a scene of UK BBC series Prime Suspect and a glass of vodka. What would Olivia be like 10 years from now living out her days out in the alternate universe?
First Ten Years (Fringe TV series) - Prequel to The Promise. This story deals with how Olivia faired during those 10 years. Who she meets?
Heart (Fringe TV series) - The ultimate alternate universe. I wanted more of the Other Side and the fascinating Olivia Dunham over there. Peter Bishop lives here and circumstances will throw him and the memorable Fringe Division Agent together for an interesting adventure.
A series of episode tags...
Unpleasant Business (Fringe TV series) - Olivia Dunham was no more an assassin in this world than in her own world. Why Newton offered to kill Joel for her. Tag to 3x02 "The Box".
Two Steps Ahead (Fringe TV series) - It's time to cross that moral line. Tag to 3x04 "Do Shapeshifters Dream of Electric Sheep?"
This Feels Nice (Fringe TV series) - Missing scenes from 3x03 "The Plateau". Olivia reflects on Frank's kindness and Frank reflects on his Olivia.
Expendable (Fringe TV series) - It's just like nothing ever happened. Back to work at Fringe Division, things were not quite the same. Tag to 3x08 "Entrada".
Where Do We Stand? (Fringe TV series) - Was it over with Frank? She hoped not. Tag to 3x13 "Immortality".
Fear Not Death (Fringe TV series) - "I'm not afraid to die." See how much Peter Bishop cares for the other Olivia.
I Am Spock (Fringe TV series) - I have been planning this one when I was writing Heart. Star Trek is my first love. I thought it would be a great topic of Charlie Francis banter. Hey! He inspired me. Unless someone tires of this, I can go on forever.
Bedrock (Fringe TV series) - The Flintstones' rich tapestry is the basis for mixing up the haunted episodes of with Fringe. It's Sam Weiss and Peter's co-venture.
In Kind (Fringe TV series) - See how the other Olivia captured Walter's heart after a little tumble at the lab.
To Stephen (Castle TV series) - Tribute to writer Stephen J. Cannell
In Memory of My Father (Happy Days TV series) - Tribute to Tom Bosley's character Howard Cunningham.
Deducted Reasoning (Body of Proof TV series) - Brief character one-shot for Megan Hunt. This is a modified version posted to Fanfiction.net and TheBodyisProof.com. I am still not sure about using medical jargon in the future.
Why Now? (Body of Proof TV series) - Brief one-shot episode tag of "Society Hill" from Peter Dunlop's POV. It's precedes Megan's eureka moment.
Please Don't Make Me Go (Bones TV series) - I have watched Bones on and off since the very beginning. The impact of Vincent's death in episode "The Hole in the Heart" compelled me come up with something fitting. For someone who love to spew random thoughts myself, I have a certain affinity for this character. With him saying he didn't want to leave made the moment he died that much more poignant.
This short little story broke all sorts of records. Overnight, it had reached 1000 hits. For a single day, the hit counter was more than 900, surpassing all of my favourite stories. The fact I wrote it so quickly was also unusual for me. I seem to be making a habit of doing dedication to fictional characters and real life people.
Old Friends (MASH TV series) - Tribute to Harry Morgan's character Colonel Sherman T. Potter.
