Writing the 'What Might Have Been Series'

Today, though it was hardly the plan, I wrote the final three scenes for What Might Have Been– it’s in the story “Ring of FIre” which I have plotted out in my head but I’m no where near ready to write. But the last three scenes just came to me in a flash of inspiration. I’ll admit I cried while I wrote it. Don’t worry– I’m a firm believer in happily ever after but gosh did I make John work for it.

I’ve come up with some great ideas for future AUs because of this series and I’ve got a lot of ideas jotted down for when I’m finished but a part of never really wants to finish it. I just want to keep writing for it forever but I do have a great idea for a second series with the same characters in the same universe– so we’ll see how that goes. My Sentinels of Atlantis series is bugging me and I’ve got a great idea for another AU that is a Sentinel/Criminal Minds/Stargate Fusion that will just not let me go at all.

Tons of ideas and really so little time. I’m also tempted to dig out my old SG1 fanfic and polish it up.

On other things– I think I’m going to take Vala and Daniel to Atlantis in the ‘Dark Places in the Soul Series’ and I’ve got a great story set up for John/Laura that will be heart breaking but lovely all at the same time. I definitely think the next few stories in that series will be very edgy. I have a half-written story that would fit somewhere in the middle– maybe just before Where Ever You Go which would be McKay/Lorne. It’s a very dark, angsty idea but I think it has a lot of potential.

Anyways–that’s it for now.

In my spare time, I write fanfiction and lead a cult of cock worshippers on the Internet. It's not the usual kind of hobby for a 40ish "domestic engineer" but we live in a modern world and I like fucking with people's expectations.


  1. I’ve been enjoying your ‘What Might Have been series’, but then I’ve got a total kink for a smart Rodney and a dangerous John! 🙂 And these two sure are!!! I’m happy to hear you have plans for many more stories – and I hope you do some whump to John at some point. John’s been doing almost all the panicking and lots has happened to Rodney, but John’s really got the more dangerous job.

    I also love the Sentinels of Atlantis – but then, emotional but unable to deal John – oh yea. Him so tied up with Rodney he can’t think – oh yea 🙂

  2. Oh, and I’m dying to know more about the declassification!! It happened between fics – and I wanted to see the whole gleeful dance Rodney and Sam were going to do on all the people they thought were so very wrong! What can I say, others admitting to/seeing Rodney’s genius 🙂

  3. Wow, I cannot wait to read all of that, it sounds like it’s going to be very interesting. I understand not wanting to complete the What Might Have Been series Universe, It’s been a delight to read and it’s great to hear that you’ve enjoyed writing it. I look forward to reading the sentinel Au updates and I’m very excited about the whole sentinel/criminal minds/sga thing, it sounds very very good, i’ll probably have to brush up on the show criminal minds but I’ve watched some episodes and they were great, so it won’t be a hardship. I’m also excited about the Mckay/Lorne story, it is one of my favorites to read after Sheppard and Beckett and I can’t wait to see how you write them together, even if it is dark, it’s bound to be amazing. So keep up the great work and may you continue to be inspired.

  4. *doing the Snoopy dance of anticipation*

    Okay, so I’m suffering the tortures of the damned waiting for the next piece to come out in this ‘verse. I’m positively gleeful over the mention of more to come.

    I’m so addicted.

    I’m hoping there will be at least a couple of additional chapters before we get to ‘Ring of Fire’…and yes! A Johnny Cash reference for the grand finale. Most appropriate.

    Better still, I’m all but starry-eyed at the mention of a second series!


    Okay, we’ve already established that I’m totally addicted to this AU. And you’re dangling more of the same characters and same ‘verse under my nose…holding it tantalizingly out of reach?

    *fans myself*

    Didn’t anyone tell you that it’s not nice to tease little ole ladies?

    *looks innocent*


    *slips your plot bunnies chocolate and Viagra*

  5. LMAO– Chocolate and Viagra — that’s a deadly combination.

  6. i’m so happy, you make a enchanted world for us, thanks you, i fall in love with What Might Have Been and The Sentinels of Atlantis, i’ll read Dark Places in the Soul later. i’m addict, everyday i look if you’ve post a new chapitre. thanks for everything.

  7. It almost breaks my heart to know that this series is ending. The only bright spot is that you said you are going to do spin offs. Plus, really, if you just keep going you might get bored and then the writing would suffer. So, keep up the excellent story telling, get back the the Sentinel series (you’ve left us hanging) and give the boy’s their ‘happy ever after.’

    *looks around cautiously* if you are taking bribes (shoves box thru the screen) here are some wings from Rodney’s bar. Teyla’s kept things going and the food is still excellent

    There is this place down from my house– a hole in the wall kind of diner. They have the best damn wings there– EVER and as a rule I don’t even eat things off the bone. So that’s how good they are 🙂

  9. Im so excited to hear you have plans to write more Sheppard/Cadman, you have me well and truly addicted to this great ship. Plus your writing provides endless exam study procrastination material…

    Is there any chance you can point me in the direction of some more Sheppard/Cadman fanfiction to tide me over… seriously im entering withdrawal city over here…. Also feel free to throw in a name of a support group ….

    Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful tallent with us … And for the record I too am open to offering bribes…. How do you feel about warm choc-chip cookies or allternativly a chocolate covered Lorne?????????????????? Say the word and its yours…..

  10. So I just finished My Wish For You and totally love the whole What Might Have Been series. If you ever do the Criminal Minds/Stargate/Sentinel fusion you mentioned, I will wait in line to read it!! Those are thhree of my favorite fandoms and Criminal Minds really isn’t written about enough in the fanfic community.
