So I now have permission to make a disclosure here. It will be interesting if any readers here can guess at or recognize this connection.
But Kelly Dean Jolley, the philosophy professor who writes about Chuck at his blog here; IS the fan fiction writer Zettel, whose first work I previously recommended in my last fan fiction post. He did not want the connection made prior to his first story being finished.
If you’ve ever thought about fan fiction and waffled, or even if you haven’t thought about it before, this might be the time to check out a story. Zettel is a good writer who tells a fun story. Its called “Chuck vs The Beautiful Creatures” and is sort of a mash up with the 2013 movie “Beautiful Creatures”. But the characters are all Chuck (so its not actually a “crossover”). In many ways calling the Intersect “magic” makes more sense than what we saw in canon! And you remember all those times we discussed “Sarah” and “Agent Walker” like they were two different people? Well Zettel makes good use of his setting to make that almost literally true.
Really, Check this out!
