Checking in and a special bonus read :P

Update Link: Kismet, Prologue – Chapter 4

I need someone to slap my immune system, so it wakes up. I got sick AGAIN this week, but thankfully, it was just a head cold that cleared out after a few days. Still, the irritation of it all.

Anyway! I’m still writing, still making progress, but I haven’t had a chance to edit chapters of Signs of Life — I figured I should concentrate on Fool Me Twice, which is what I did. But I hate not having anything for you guys to check out, so I dug out Kismet, the NaNoWriMo project from last fall. I think my opening chapters are some of my best work, and I’m looking forward to digging back into this at some point this summer.

This is the Prologue and Chapters 1-4. I wrote two and a half more chapters, but most of the changes I need to make are in those chapters, so I figure this will hold you over 😛 It’s around 54 pages. I left it in PDF form because I want to go write FMT.

Some notes about Kismet — It begins with a prologue on the day of Sonny & Brenda’s wedding, and it uses actual dialogue from the Jason/Sonny scene with some tweaks, and refers to a scene that happened the night before. Jason’s story is mostly the same, but Liz has a new background (still a Hardy/Webber but aging her up means some new aspects to her backstory). I hope you enjoy and let me know what you think!


  • Ooooo this is a good one! I’m loving their interaction so far

  • I just hope that you feel better soon. It’s been rough on you. Take care of yourself. I remember Kismet.

  • I love the fact the VHSs were mentioned because they were everywhere in my house in the 90s! It was awesome! I also love that we kinda have the sweetness feel of Jason and Elizabeth’s first interactions on the show, but now set in a different timeline. BTW that first kiss was HOT! Love it and you! Feel better!

  • That was amazing! I loved everything about these first 4 chapters. From their first interaction and the spark of interest to the shooting at Luke’s and then being hauled into the police station followed up by that sexy night together. Yum! I’m loving this spunky Elizabeth who goes after what she wants. I look forward to reading the rest of this story when you have the time and inspiration to write it. Thank you for sharing your time and incredible talent with us.

    According to Beth on March 23, 2023
  • WOW!!! This was an amazing story. I can’t wait to read more. The way they met, their interactions. I felt so sad for Elizabeth and Jason at different points but so happy that they felt a connection with each other. I hope you are starting to feel better!

  • I really liked the changes to Elizabeth’s background in this one, especially aging her up and nixing the rape storyline. I always thought part of the reason Jason and Elizabeth didn’t get together in the early Liason period was that Jason thought Elizabeth was too young and too fragile after everything that had happened to her. He was too chivalrous for MY good as a viewer, dammit! I really like the idea of a story set in this time period in which all the best parts of Elizabeth’s fun personality and kind soul are there, but she is old enough and experienced enough for Jason to not be so careful with her.
