Fic meme

Not in a writing mood but I think I can do this meme!

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll tell you what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

ETA: If anyone cares about my unfinished WIPs, "Happy Birthday" or the "Night Fall" series, I'd be happy to tell you how I (we) planned to end them. My other WIPs I do intend to finish, one of these days!

Ooo! I want to know what happened exactly a year to the day after the end of 'The Sea'. How'd the boys celebrate their anniversary? :)

Good question. I had to think about this one! I think, after a year, they are comfortable enough to spend their anniversary in public. They go to the local cantina, drink a lot, and slowdance to the jukebox. And the bartender buys them their last round. :)

Awww. *ducks*

Well, Sawyer gets shot and Jack has to stay with him and they can't move or they'll be caught. And maybe I follow through until Sawyer is in the hospital and Jack also is injured and ends up there with him. And then maybe some supply closet sex. ;)

So that means that Happy Birthday won't ever be finished? Well, in that case...spill the ending! I gotta know...

Okay, l dragged out my old notes from nearly two years ago. LOL, the melodrama!

Sawyer has no choice but to pretend to go along with Kate's plan to abduct Shannon. But her suspicions that he wasn't turned are confirmed when he tries to help Shannon get away. Ethan takes off with Shannon while Sawyer tries to stall Kate. In the meantime, Sayid's body has been found, so when Jack and the rest catch up to them, Kate is quick to blame Sawyer for everything. Since he's mute, he can't defend himself and everyone believes Kate, except Jack, who's been feeling something isn't right with Kate.

They're about to string Sawyer up, over Jack's objections, when he manages to shout that Kate is the murderer. Kate grabs Jack as hostage to get out of there. She takes him into the tunnels, to one of the hatches. She tortures Jack as he pleads with her to remember who she used to be.

Sawyer, Boone and Locke follow and rescue Jack and Shannon. They kill Ethan by beheading him (I started on this before there were all the guns on the island!) Jack doesn't want to kill Kate, thinking she can still be redeemed, but he has no choice.

End scene: Sawyer and Shannon are reunited. Big memorial service for Sayid, Michael, Claire and yes, Kate, who Jack says they should remember as she was.

I definitely want to hear about Night Fall. (And I hope that some day you do more work on the Interview. No pressure, but that was so, so good.)

I'm also curious about Wild Horses (say, the next day), and also You Only Live Once (about a month later). If that's too many, just pick one.

Awww, thanks. I do want to get back to The Interview, even though it's been over a year. It actually would work better after S2...

For Wild Horses, I think they'd still be in a discovery kind of mode. Sleeping in in their suite overlooking the beach and ordering food in and not coming out for a long time! There'd still be some melancholy about Kate not being there, but I think they'd be caught up in each other in the moment.

For You Only Live Once ... wow. I love that you remember that one! I think Jack would have left the priesthood and moved out to the desert and probably be drinking way too much. In the meantime, I think he'd have familiarized himself with Sawyer's life and gotten a little obsessed with him. I think eventually he would pull himself out of his depression but he would need someone to shake him out of it.

I actually need to check my notes on Night Fall ... I'll get back to you! ;)

Okay, here's the outline for Night Fall. We really didn't get that far into it, alas! And we kept changing it, LOL. Kate was originally going to be the one who shot Boone but then we decided to go with a different shooter... I think this is what we had agreed to do at the time we left it:

* Sawyer is a hunted man because it's assumed he shot Boone and assaulted Kate.
Despite years of loyalty in his service, Locke swears to get Sawyer.

* Distraught over Boone's death, Shannon starts seeing Sayid, the shady owner of the night club where she works, and talks him into hunting down Sawyer.

* Jack takes Kate back to his place to keep her safe but she sneaks away to see Sawyer. Hot motel room sex ensues. ;) In the morning, he's gone.

* Sayid waylays Jack, beats him up, demands to know where Sawyer is. Jack honestly doesn’t know.

* We were going to throw in junkie Charlie as a witness ... only he knows it was Locke, not Kate or Sawyer, who shot Boone. Charlie is sweet on Shannon so he finally tells her the truth but she can't reach Sayid to call him off.

* Kate goes to Locke to plead for Sawyer's life and realizes he set Sawyer up. In fact, he was the "other man" who seduced Sawyer's mom and ruined his life.

* Big showdown at Locke's warehouse ... (We were originally going to kill Sawyer and then decided against it.) I can't remember what we were going to do here, exactly. I think that Jack gets k.o.'d trying to save Sawyer ... Kate shoots and kills Locke, so she's the one being led off to jail at the end of the fic. Jack and Sawyer go off to tend their wounds... both trying to be noble about who should end up with Kate... THE END.

A week from the moment "This Time" ends, pretty please?

If Jack/James 'verse isn't an option, I'm sorry. Just let me know and I'll come back with a different request.

Let's see ... I think they would be still in reunion mode, lots of sex and very little talk about themselves. But after a week, the questions would be weighing on Jack's mind a little more. I think it would maybe come out that James is going as Sawyer now and even though Jack doesn't know what that name means, he would be confused by James using an alias. I also think James would be struggling with what he'd done in Sydney and being nearly as self-destructive as he was at first on the island (in canon). He wouldn't admit it to Jack, but I think Jack would realize something is really wrong and that maybe he doesn't even know James anymore.

Sad but true. Don't know why I thought that he wouldn't have shot that man on this verse, but canon is canon. It's tempting to believe that now they're together - and Christian is dead - everything should be okay, but they've been through too much and it shouldn't be ignored.

Thanks.

I'm always an optimist and I think these two are meant to be together, except that they each are so broken and have so many demons. I like to think they can end up together in the end, after they've worked through their issues but true love definitely doesn't always conquer all. There aren't even a lot of canon fics where Jack finds out about Sawyer having killed someone and that always really interests me. Here, I think he might tell him finally, because then (he figures) Jack would have to stop loving him.
