Among the issues that occasionally come up on the blog is what is canon and what isn’t. I think the best answer is “only what ends up on screen.” But that doesn’t mean other tidbits from the Chuckiverse are without value. We have all discussed deleted scenes and interviews as ways of understanding what’s going on in the show or the character’s heads. We string together theories of what may happen next from the vaguest of hints and clues. Speculating probably fills more space here than any other single topic of discussion.
Which leads to the most extreme expression of speculation, fan fiction. I’m sure many posters and commenters here are well aware of the volume and quality of Chuck themed fan fiction that’s available on the web. Given how many of us are disappointed by the current tone of the show, this seems a good time to mention this resource for any who are interested. One websight in particular, fanfiction.net, has over 1700 titles under the Chuck theme. Whatever your interests in the show, you can find a writer who has a similar interest. I’m sure no one will be surprised that stories of how Chuck and Sarah finally get together are a very popular theme.
Quality and length vary greatly. So let me plug a writer who has begun posting here the last couple days. BillAtWork is currently posting his 19th story. I believe he’s brought Chuck and Sarah together six or seven different ways, and I do mean different. His stories emphasize teamwork, friendship, and family.
