Just a quick news item for those of you follow fan fiction at all. Frea O’Scanlin, who is a regular commenter at this site; but is better known for her epic (pardon the four letter word, but it fits!) story “What Fates Impose” has started a new story in a completely new AU. She cites Thinkling’s post (and the discussion that followed) “Chuck Bartowski: Hero, Spy or Regular Guy” as her inspiration.
The new piece is called “That Which is Greater” and it promises to explore how things might have been different if Chuck was no mere slacker; but rather a single father with his own software business. The first chapter is written in Frea’s usual engaging style and covers Chuck and Sarah’s first encounter, but the differences in set up are dramatic at the start.
She’s making no promises about how far this may go, but does have several chapters written already, so at the very least we should see a well written alternate beginning to the story (I’m greedy of course, I hope she goes much further).
The first chapter is quite short for Frea and could be read in 15 minutes; it contains nothing objectionable. This looks to be a lot of fun and gets my highest recommendation!
Addenda: I normally say follow the fanfiction.com link; but this time, it appears the Castle Inanity link at right is a better choice. It seems to be a chapter ahead for this story.
