Welcome to Crimson Glass
This is a General Hospital fanfiction archive that concentrates on the pairing of Jason Morgan and Elizabeth Webber. You will also find a lot of stories that feature Sonny and Carly Corinthos, Patrick Drake and Robin Scorpio, and Nikolas Cassadine and Emily Quartermaine. The stories are written completely by me, Melissa (LissieLove) and features novels, short stories, and other GH-related material. It has been online since September 19, 2002.
If you don't like Jason and Elizabeth as a pairing or you have any fondness for the character of Franco, then you should probably click the back button and continue on your way. Happy travels. I hate Franco. He is a lying, violent, sociopathic piece of shit, and I hope this character gets yeeted into the sun. Thank you.

Update Link: Signs of Life – Part 8
Hope everyone is having a good week! I’m having a lot of trouble sleeping which is really making it hard to get going in the morning. I’m not sure what’s up with any of that, but well, here we are. Anyway — fun fact — the scene with Alexis in Part 7 bringing up spousal privilege was NOT in the first plot sketch of this story. So, um, I don’t know if I should toss out my plans and go with it, or just have it be a funny thing that happened. Thoughts?
I’m not sure, again, when I’ll be able to do Friday’s update. I’m spending all day with my mother tomorrow for a procedure (the last one to confirm cancer — it’s not the one they thought it was, but they haven’t ruled out other types), and my electric is being turned off most of Friday. I might do it Friday night or Saturday morning.
See you then!
Update Link: Scars – Part 2
I hope everyone is having a good week! I’ll probably be moving the Flash Fiction update on Friday to either Saturday or later on Friday. They’re going to be turning off the electric on my block between 10 AM – 4 PM to do some work on the lines. I could try to do it earlier, but we’ll see.
I cleaned up the widgets a bit — in that I updated the Recently Updated/Completed/What’s Next sections. I’ll be cleaning it up further when I’m done Flash Fiction today. My Photoshop decided to take forever to open up any files, so I got a little behind.
I’ll see you tomorrow for the next part of Signs of Life!
Update Link: Signs of Life – Part 7
Happy Sunday! I’ve spent the last five days doing very little, lol. I played a lot of The Sims 4, to be honest. I’ve been working on the Decades Challenge — a version of the legacy challenge that begins in the 1890s and works its way up to the 2000s, changing rules for historical play. It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve been suuuper unstructured, lol. That’s good a for a bit, but I actually am better when I have some sort of plan for the day.
I think I’m nearly ready to confirm that Mad World will be the next project, starting in June. I do like the opening scenes I played with for Broken Girl, but I was looking over my plans for the story and I think I need to go back to the drawing board on the second half just a little bit.
I’ll see you guys on Tuesday!
Update Link: Scars – Part 1
Happy Friday! Today, we’re starting a new Flash Fiction story, the sequel to Darkest Before the Dawn & Shot in the Dark. Scars takes place in 2016, three years later, and rewrites the Tom Baker storyline. Tania asked for the rewrite, but in order to set it in 2016, I had to do some things first. I thought about just making some of it backstoy we’d talk about, but as I planned it, I realized I wanted to write those parts of the story, LOL.
If you’re a Patreon supporter, I posted some opening scenes for Mad World and Broken Girl to get some thoughts about which story I should focus on. If I’m still undecided next week, I’ll post them here for general thoughts.
I hope you guys are having a great week! I’ll see you on Sunday for the next part of Signs of Life!
Update Link: Signs of Life – Part 6
I hope everyone is having a great week! Today is the first day of my summer vacation, and I am READY to get some more sleep, get the house in order, and just relax for a few months. It’s been a very long school year, and I definitely need this vacation. I have to write curriculum for next year, but that’s not until next month, and fingers crossed — I can do the majority of it remotely.
Thank you so much for the overwhelmingly positive response to Fool Me Twice! It was such a huge and ambitious project — it definitely has more moving pieces than anything I’ve written and tackles a much harder period of GH history than I’ve attempted. Setting something in the last five years of GH is no easy feat and I appreciate everyone coming along with me on that ride. I know some of you guys are NOT Carly fans, LOL, so I love that you’re supportive of my undying love for her. I know it feels like Elizabeth gave her a lot of slack, but I promise you — that’s something we’re coming back to in the next book. I’m not done dragging Carly through the mud just yet. And stay tuned — the Carly in Michael is going to jump out. Sometimes you gotta be stupid before you can be smart.
I’m happy to be bringing back Flash Fiction. Signs of Life will be updated on Sundays & Wednesdays, and Scars will be on Fridays & Tuesdays. Both of those stories should take us about the entire summer or so.
I’m taking off the next week or so from thinking about the next project. I’ll be starting whatever it is on July 1 for CampNaNoWriMo. I’m leaning towards Mad World because I always write it in July for this event, but I’m also going to consider Broken Girl. Both of those projects would be completed with the next book. Let me know if you have a preference!
I’ll see you guys on Friday!
Hey! For some reason the update post got pushed out ahead of schedule. The chapters went live at 6:30. They should be working now!
Update Link: Start with Ricochet, Chapter 35
In case you missed it, I posted Chapters 31-34 yesterday. Today, we are bringing the first book to a close with chapters 35-38. I’m really happy to finally have this project done and delivered.
If you’ve been reading and haven’t left a reply yet, please make sure you do today. I’m still finalizing the plots and character beats for Books 2 & 3 so I want to know what you guys want to see more of. What you connected to.
The only thing left to do is complete the book. Because FMT’s editing process was all over the place, I’m actually going to do one more read through of the entire draft so that ebook will probably be out sometime next month.
As for what’s next — I’ll be able to start flash fiction this week on schedule but I might miss a day here and there with other things going on. The next time you hear from me will be Wednesday morning with the long overdue return of Signs of Life.
Update Link: Start with Ricochet, Chapter 31
Thanks so much for voting in the poll! I’m so excited that I’m nearly done with this project. Today, I’ll reread the final four chapters for last minute tweaks and typos. They’ll go live at 6:30 AM tomorrow. I can’t wait to see what you guys think! Please let me know EVERYTHING. I’m still finalizing plots for Books 2 & 3 so I definitely want to know what you guys want more of — what you hope to see. I know the big movements, but I haven’t sat down to plan.
Enjoy and please remember to leave me a review!
Poll Results are in! Overwhelmingly, you voted to get all eight chapters at once! I’m actually going to split them in half. Chapters 31-34 go live on Sunday and Chapters 35-38 go live on Monday. If I do it all at once, you’ll be waiting until Monday. I thought you’d rather have some ASAP. I hope that’s okay!
Hello! For the past several years, I’ve been using Patreon as a way to pay for my hosting costs and invest in research and materials for my writing. I’ve been able to fully pay for my hosting, upgrade to a new domain, film and edit videos for my channel, and also make some financial decisions that give me time to write. I no longer work a second job which gives me more time to write (I quit tutoring in October of 2018). Thank you so much for your love and support over these last few years. I am the luckiest fanfiction writer in the world.
All of my writing is available here at Crimson Glass for free, but Patreons get access to content before I post it here and they also get behind the scenes content. I publish all drafts of my stories and give a lot of more information. I also do livestreams and video content there.

Hey! Just ducking in to let you know that I’ve completed the beta edits on Book 1! It’s taken WAY longer than I had ever thought (I had originally hoped to be done in January, heh) but we’re there. The only thing I have to do is a final read through for typos. Since the chapters are done, I wanted to see how you guys wanted to read the last few chapters:
I’ll leave this up until sometime tomorrow and let you know. I wouldn’t post anything until Sunday or Monday because I want to do that final read through.
Oh — and just a note for anyone who read Chapter 30 and thinks I might be letting Carly off too easy — make sure you’re paying attention to the characters letting her off the hook because they have their reasons and I plan to redo the Nelle gaslighting Carly thing in Book 2 to really break Carly apart into tiny little pieces, heh. I’ll see you later!
