Alternate History

Stories in this category are written within the accepted history of the show, sometimes with a few minor changes to suit my purposes, since no one is paying me to fix the show. Most of my stories are usually in this category as there are too many storylines that have promising beginnings only for the writers to take the easy way out at all times.

The stories have been divided into sections based on the Liason time period. All but two of the stories center Jason and Elizabeth, so if you’re looking a specific time period, this is a good way to do it. I’ve created empty sections for years I haven’t written yet mostly because I’m sure I will eventually. I’ve also included a few upcoming stories to flesh out some of the empty sections.

The stories are accompanied with a few descriptive details to give you an idea of the story. Please note the year written. I’ve been writing since I was 18 in 2002, and stories written in 2002-04 are of a certain quality. They were definitely part of my learning process, but the quality is definitely different. Stories written from 2006-08 are better, and the ones written after 2014 are the best ones.

I’ve also listed the primary characters in each story as well as the primary couples. Some stories might have more couples, but the couples listed are the endgame. The “Type” category is in reference to word counts.

Note: This page is a work in progress. I am working on merging my Novels, Short Stories, and Ficlets onto one page with all the stories organized in chronological order. Stories from 1997-2003 have been re-organized and the details sections have been fleshed out. However, I haven’t linked any of the Short Stories yet, and am still working on 2004-2018.


1997-2000 | 2001 | 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007-2009 | 2010-12 | 2014-2016 | 2017 – Present |


Stories Set in 1997 – 2000

These stories are set between 1997 and 2000. At the moment, there are no stories that are published but a few that are in the pipeline. Stories set during this period would either be alternative versions of how Elizabeth moved to Port Charles (Kismet) or take place after their August 1999 meeting at Jake’s. They will also cover Jason’s return in the summer of 2000.

Kismet

Set December 1997. Jason is the newly minted, inexperienced leader of the Port Charles underground. Elizabeth is the black sheep nursing student at General Hospital.

They meet over the bleeding body of Nikolas Cassadine, the victim of a drive-by shooting at Luke’s Club that might have been targeted at Jason. When they both end up at the PCPD, arrested for simply breathing, the attraction between them is immediate.

But life is never that simple in Port Charles, and Jason has a lot of baggage—an ex-girlfriend he might still be in love with, the ex-friend with benefits who is about to drag him into another crazy scheme, the woman his best friend stood up at the altar on his way out of town, and the controlling family still desperate to drag Jason back home at any cost.

Can Elizabeth see past all of this drama and give Jason a chance? Or is there just one too many secrets to deal with?

Signs of Life

Set December 1999. No one even knew they were friends until Nikolas Cassadine announced Jason and Elizabeth were sleeping together at the annual hospital Christmas Party, and now, suddenly everyone wants to weigh in on the subject. It’s not true, of course, but that’s never stopped Port Charles before.

At first it’s amusing when her grandmother and his sister pass judgment, but things quickly get serious when Anthony Moreno’s body surfaces in the Port Charles harbor, and their fictional relationship might be Jason’s only chance to stay out jail. Elizabeth can alibi him, and after all, only Bobbie and Carly know he was shot. They’re not telling anyone, right?

Until Carly decides she needs Jason’s help in yet another desperate scheme, and she’ll use any leverage at hand to make him dance her to her tune.

Counting Stars

Set 2000. When Carly attempts to blackmail Jason into helping her disappear with Michael and Sonny’s unborn child, Jason is left with little choice but to leave Port Charles despite the fledging romance he’s building with Elizabeth. They part on bittersweet terms after a single night together, knowing he may never return. He travels the country, trying to find peace from the demons that drove him away while she reconstructs her life. Their only contact are missed phone calls and cryptic postcards.

Elizabeth soon learns she is pregnant, but is hesitant to seek Jason out, hoping he’ll return on his own. She attempts to keep the baby a secret, but the reveal sends shock waves throughout Port Charles — it seems everyone has an opinion about her child and relationship with Jason.

Just when Jason appears to be on his way home, he vanishes. Has he decided to leave Port Charles behind forever or is there a more menacing explanation?

Stories Set in 2001

These stories would take place during the time period on show when Jason returned in January of 2001. He remained through the end of April 2001. At the moment, I don’t have any stories planned, but it deserves its own section for any short stories or ficlets I end up writing in the future.

No Stories Yet! Sonny wants you to be patient. Ha, just joking. Sonny can’t even spell patience.

 

Stories Set 2002

These stories are set in 2002, which is the year Jason came back and started his second stint on the show, lasting ten years. Jason returned in May of 2002, and these stories feature things like Carly’s car accident, Luis Alcazar, and the fall out of Sonny’s faked death as well as the beginnings of Jason and Courtney’s relationship.

Bittersweet

Set in April 2002. After walking out on a disastrous wedding and unhappy relationship, Elizabeth Webber promised herself a fresh start. She moved into Bobbie’s Brownstone with Gia Campbell as an unlikely ally, and befriended AJ Quartermaine’s new wife and Sonny Corinthos’ long-lost sister, Courtney Matthews.

When Carly Corinthos goes missing after a car accident at Vista Point, Jason Morgan is forced to return to Port Charles, testing Elizabeth’s resolve to put all her bad decisions behind her. AJ begins to plan for a custody battle for Michael Benson which pits brother against brother, and putting Elizabeth right in the middle.

Stories set in 2005

Stories set in 2005 are a mixed bag, and there aren’t a lot of them. Jason and Elizabeth didn’t share a lot of scenes after the early part of the year. They’re in relationship with Lucky and Sam. This is kind of the low point of Liason interaction (until we get to 2010, where apparently they had three scenes together in total).

Stories set in 2007-09

While Jason and Elizabeth had a ton of interaction in 2007-09, I actually don’t have a lot of stories set during this period. In 2007, we had the Jake reveal, then in 2008, we had our Liason romance. 2009 is a low point as Jason and Elizabeth drift back to Sam, Lucky, and then Nikolas. I have a great story planned for the fall of 2008 and some ideas for 2007 coming up in flash fiction this fall.

Stories Set 2010-2012

This is the interim period as Guza’s strong decade on the show peters out in his final years. I wasn’t watching at all during this period, so I don’t have anything for Jake’s death. The one story that’s listed below starts in 2010, but picks up the show in 2008. I have a few short stories that will be here, and I’m working on a longer Flash Fiction that will eventually be here.

Jason and Elizabeth don’t share a lot of scenes until Jake’s death, and then his divorce from Sam before he takes his infamous leap off the pier.

Feels Like Home

Set in June 2024, picks up the show in 2010. It’s been more than a decade since Elizabeth Morgan vanished without a trace, leaving behind a devastated husband and three small children. A botched, biased police investigation quickly turned the case cold.

Now, her children are reaching adulthood, and friends and family are encouraging Jason to declare her legally dead and move on.

But Commissioner Lucky Spencer’s last ditch attempt to find his childhood sweetheart reveals the existence of a mysterious woman, a survivor a serial killer who has suffered amnesia and memory loss since her rescue.

Is Corrine Markham really Elizabeth Morgan? Are her memories still locked away somewhere? Or is it time for the Morgans to let go of the dream of reuniting their family for good?

Stories Set 2013-2016

These are the peak Ron Carlivati years as well as the Jake Doe years. I have a few short stories from this era, and I mostly treat Jake Doe like he was actually Jason. I wasn’t watching in most of 2015 and 2016, so I don’t have a lot of stuff set in that period. This would take care of Liz’s relationships with AJ, Ric, and Jake Doe/Jason Morgan.

Damaged

Set Spring 2014. When AJ Quartermaine is murdered in cold blood, the question isn’t who did it — everyone already knows that answer. It’s up to the PCPD, under Commissioner Anna Devane, to get justice for AJ’s family — for the beleaguered Quartermaine clan that’s been decimated in recent years.

Michael has cut ties with the Corinthos clan, devastated by the betrayal of his adopted father, by the secrets of his mother, and the loss of the father he’d only begun to love. Monica is eager to welcome him into the family—he’s all that she has left since she’s buried all four of her children.

Or so she thinks.

Off the coast of Greece, Victor Cassadine hands Robin Scorpio a shocking assignment — wake Jason Morgan from the coma he’s been in for the last five years. If she fails, she’ll forfeit Jason’s life and her own, never to return to her husband and daughter. If she succeeds — Jason can go home to take his life back from the con artist wearing his face—the man who went off the pier in 2012.

And maybe, just maybe, Victor will let Jason return with the other secret resident of Cassadine Island.

Stories set 2017 – Present

Steve Burton returned as Jason, and I started watching again that fall. I have a handful of short stories, some ficlets, and a few novels planned for this section. Stories in this part deal with the return of Jason, the revelation of Drew Cain, and the abomination of Franco. And we can’t forget the pretty of Cameron.

Fool Me Twice Fool Me Twice

In October of 2017, the city of Port Charles is stunned when a man with Jason Morgan’s old face shows up at the Aurora Media re-launch party claiming to be the infamous enforcer. Though his identity is quickly proven to be true, the city will never be the same.

Drew Cain has a new name and new face, but none of his old memories. He’s living Jason’s life with Jason’s wife, raising Jason’s children. Who is he? Where did he come from? Jason Morgan has been gone for five years and nothing is the way he thought it would be. His wife has moved on — with a man she thought was him. His dead son has been miraculously resurrected and another son has been identified as his own.

Jason and Drew must learn to work together to find out who stole their lives and put their families in danger. They’re not the only patients with memory issues — if Jason is Patient Six — well, who were the first five?

Someone has to pay for the lives destroyed by the twin swap and memory experimentation, but in Port Charles, sometimes it’s hard to tell friend from foe.
