PML's Slightly Scifi stories - Update - 02/18/12

Post by PML » Wed Sep 02, 2009 8:41 pm

Okay, so maybe more than just a little. Might as well start at the beginning with my long, rambling, but hopefully good series, In Destiny's Shadow.

The Longest Day
Disclaimer- I do not own Roswell, and mean no infringement. It is owned by Melinda Metz, Jason Katims, UPN, WB, etc.

Category- CC, ALL
Rating- Teen, possibly hitting Mature later on.

Summary- This story has been running through my head for a while. My plan is to put a bit of a spin on the second season, starting at Wipeout. At this point our heroes have much to grapple with, their leaders Max and Liz have managed to break themselves. Isabel is haunted by her past life. Maria’s heart is still not whole. Michael is suffering divided loyalties. Both Alex and Kyle are out of the loop by this point. Only Tess seems to be having things go her way. A perfect time to add complications, as unbeknownst to our heroes their enemies have planned a counterstrike for their actions at Copper Summit. They will have the chance to fulfill their destinies, but first they have to live through the Longest Day.

The Longest day is the first of four books- followed by Eidolon/Reflections, Shadows of the Past, and Redemption.

Eidolon

Title- In Destiny’s Shadow - Eidolon

Disclaimer- I do not own Roswell, and mean no infringement. It is owned by Melinda Metz, Jason Katims, UPN, WB, etc.

Category- CC, ALL
Rating- Teen, possibly hitting Mature later on.

Summary- This is the second book of In Destiny’s Shadow. The first was In Destiny’s Shadow – The Longest Day, and told of our heroes’ defense of themselves and Roswell when Nicholas and a small army of Skins arrived to ostensibly destroy them. But despite their successful defense of their home, it was not without price. It can be found here; The Longest Day

First a brief recap. Liz was captured and the enemy attempted to turn her. Maria was nearly killed, saved only by a fateful choice by Michael. Both Kyle and Isabel are forced to reconcile their ability to kill in defense of their friends. Tess has frightened both friend and foe by an incredible display of power, while she fears the growing potential that she senses in Liz, Kyle, and Maria. And Alex is already suffering under a mind warp that will see him accomplish a goal for Tess, all while he has unwittingly saved Isabel from a dire fate. Finally, in the process of healing his friends, Max learned that Liz and Kyle did not sleep together. But why she deliberately hurt him is not the only secret he must contend with, secrets that threaten to destroy many of the relationships in his life that make it worth living.

This is made more complicated by what our heroes have seen. For in addition to the stress that holding off the Skins has brought, the pod squad is starting to remember bits of their past lives. In addition, Liz has started receiving flashes, not only of the past and present, but also of the future that was.

They have survived the Longest Day, but there will be no respite. For Nicholas’s raid on Roswell was an ill conceived last minute addition to an intricate plot which is nearing completion. And as secrets are exposed and dreams stalk the day, as they must contend with their very own reflections; can they truly survive Eidolon?

[url=http://www,roswellfanatics.net/viewtopic.php?t=19764]Shadows of the Past[/url]

Title- In Destiny’s Shadow - Shadows of the Past

Disclaimer- I do not own Roswell, and mean no infringement. It is owned by Melinda Metz, Jason Katims, UPN, WB, etc.

Category- CC, ALL
Rating- Teen, possibly Mature at points.

Summary- This is the third book of In Destiny’s Shadow. The first was the The Longest Day(aka In Destiny’s Shadow.) It picks up on the morning of the first Skin assault on Roswell. Our heroes were successful in their defense, but not without price.

The second book Eidolon relates how our heroes recover and absorb some of the changes forced on them by the Longest Day. Long hidden secrets are revealed, including the existence of a second set of hybrids. The second set had been approached by the governments of Antar and the more powerful of Antar’s colonies. As their Max analogue Zan was unwilling to meet with the leaders, Lonnie and Rath killed him, in the hope of finding Max a more willing participant.

While Max is convinced to attend, things back in Roswell do not go smoothly. Both Liz and Maria are developing powerful abilities, both of which prove necessary in their struggle to survive a second attack on Roswell. In addition bits an]pieces of the Pod Squad’s former selves are starting to show, and not all they contain is pleasant.

Of all of the friends, only Alex seems untouched by fate. Only he has avoided the attacks and the necessity of Max healing him. Unknown to all but Tess and Isabel, Alex did not go to Sweden as planned. He is in Las Cruces working on translating the Destiny Book, a task more important than any would believe.

Our heroes have faced their foes in the Longest Day and faced deception in Eidolon. Are they truly ready to face the Shadows of the Past?


The last book is entitled Redemption.

Okay. So now my stand alone stories. The first three are WIP and of moderate length. The last is a one shot.

The Sorcerer and the Stargazer

Title- The Sorcerer and the Stargazer

Disclaimer- Roswell is not mine. It is owned by Jason Katims, Melinda Metz, and Fox. This is for entertainment only and no infringement is intended. Some of the inspiration regarding the Alfar, Dvergar, and Wizards aren’t mine either, they belong to Elizabeth Boyer.

Category- AU /CC

Rating- Teen. Although it is borderline. Quite possibly mature at some point.

Summary- The year is 2025 and the world has basically been destroyed. Alex Whitman is the captain of the Stargazer and would like to know why. Max Evans holds the answers, but are Alex and the tiny crew of friends ready to go the distance to save not only the Earth but also the rest of the Seven Worlds?

Weathering the Storm

Disclaimer- I do not own Roswell, and mean no infringement. It is owned by Jason Katims, Melinda Metz, UPN, WB, etc. Please note that the Prologue contains portions of Cry Your Name and Departure.

Category- CC, Primarily M/M because of the time frame of the story. See summary for details

Rating- Mature. Lets just start here shall we? Most of this is going to be in the teen range, but there will be some dark matter discussed at points. Then again, I’m not sure it will be that much darker than the show was at this point….. Nah, keep it at Mature. More flexibility.

Summary- This story is in response to a challenge set forth to me by RhondaAnn, who was kind enough to bid and win my services in the last Support Stacie Auction. What she desired to see is the change in the Michael and Maria relationship brought about by the death of Alex. And so we shall. Naturally, I’m going to make it a bit more complicated.

So everything up to Cry Your Name has happened. Oh, yes, the out of order episode of Off the Menu did not happen. One less clue for our heroes.

Unfinished Business

Disclaimer- I do not own Roswell, and mean no infringement. It is owned by Jason Katims, Melinda Metz, UPN, WB, etc. Please note that the Prologue contains part of Cry Your Name.

Category- CC, FF

Rating- Mature.

Summary- The year is 2013. It has been ten long years since the Podsquad has fled Roswell just ahead of the Army. By mischance they have been mostly separated, each couple dealing with the hand life has dealt them. They have set aside their destiny, but what if it has not forgotten them?

Time War

Title- Time war

Disclaimer- Roswell is not mine and no infringement is intended. It is owned by Melinda Metz, Jason Katims, UPN, WB, etc.

Category- CC but basically irrelevant, as this takes place before they live in Roswell.

Rating- Teen

Summary- One take on why and how the aliens crashed in Roswell.

Okay, that is it at the moment. I've seen a couple of folks have placed soundtracks for various stories. And if I find the time, I'll likely do the same.

This particular Author's note is a bit late off the mark, but then I expected to be able to at least post on my other stories a little. Silly thought in retrospect.

I am participating in NanoWriMo this year. Writing a Roswell novel in fact, its posted on the AU with aliens board. This has curtailed my other efforts considerably. And will continue to do so until December. Hopefully I can have the story wrapped up by then. I'm on track to do so.

So my apologies to anyone waiting on any of my other stories. More so for not adding this note until now, but somehow I thought I could still crank out a part or two on the other stories.....

Anyway, the link to the story is- A Teardrop of Fire

Thanks for your patience. My other stories should start to be updated right after Dec 1st.

The first part of Redemption has been posted. I should be posting to my other stories hopefully within the next few days.

Oh, and I did manage to squeek in under the wire on Teardrop. There will be a sequal at some near point in time. I will have the title for it later.

Post by PML » Sat Feb 18, 2012 12:18 pm

Thanks guys, for the nice comments. It has been a while since I have updated this. Time to catch up I think. Oh, and this story managed to catch a couple awards. (Thanks to those who voted for me, heck thanks to those who read my stories!) Most Suspensful, Best Leading Kyle, and Best Leading Tess. Thanks again.

A few additions. Namely a Kiss to Build a Dream On and all its Companions.

Title- A Kiss to Build a Dream On

Disclaimer- I do not own Roswell, and mean no infringement. It is owned by Jason Katims, Melinda Metz, UPN, WB, etc.

Category- CC, K/T

Rating- Mature.

Summary- This story is brought out of a challenge issued to me by the illustrious Chrisken. He won my services in the last Support Stacie Auction. In truth it probably will not be as long as many of the other stories I am working on. (I promised 10k words.)

It is set after Max in the City, but before A Roswell Christmas Carol. Tess learned much in New York. And she has a choice to make.

Now this story has grown from a story where Tess needed to decide whether to push Destiny or to choose Kyle. I don’t want to spoil all that much of it, but Nasedo is not dead and is NOT happy. This added some extra depth to the story and made it necessary to add what I am calling Companions to the story. These essentially are additional POV’s by the rest of the group as all of them struggle to deal with the onslaught. The first six in order are:

1) A Forlorn Hope - This one takes place right after Kyle sneaks into Tess’s room in Chapter 20 in Kiss. It continues until roughly around Isabel and Tess’s little talk in Chapter 21.

2) Falling Snow- This one also takes place after Kyle visits Tess. But it ends before Isabel’s little chat with Tess.

3) The Dismal Silence- This one occurs a little later than the other two first stories. It starts just before Tess and Isabel’s chat.

4) The Mourning Compact- What happens after Max comes upon a drunken Liz, one who tells him the awful truth.

5) Chaotic Serenity Occurs during and after The Dismal Silence.

6) A Sinister Reverie - Starts with the Tess/ Isabel conversation still going strong. Obviously features Isabel coming back after the conversation with Tess ends.

The above deal with the primary events of that Thursday night. The next batch is how they all deal with the aftermath.

7) A King’s Defiance - Starts after Max and Liz have left the hospital, but not gotten to the Evans’ House.

8) A Queen‘s Grace - Occurs immediately after they have entered in Kiss chapter 23b.

9) The Desolation of a Soul This part is after Alex leaves for home. Thinking of Isabel and how to avenge them both.

10) ) A General’s Dilemma Michael has left the hospital to see how the others have faired. But to do so he had to leave Maria behind.

11) ) A Soldier’s Wife Maria has been captured by Aric. Can anyone save her in time?

12) ) The Frightful Truth Isabel knows her friends are hiding something from her. She is determined to find out what it is.

13) ) Ultimatum Amy knows the truth and she is not happy.

14) ) Majesty Liz and Max go to the party.

15) ) Memory of Loss Isabel and Alex take a moment to reconnect before the Party and the battle they expect there.

16) ) A Sense of Determination Everything has fallen apart, but Liz is not willing to give up quite yet.

--
These next two take place after the end of Kiss.

1) ) Blind Faith The battle is over and Maria and Michael have to deal with the fallout of what has happened during Kiss and deal with Amy.
2) ) Paladin Alex and Isabel deal with the the fallout of the horrific events that befell them in Kiss. Will they survive as a couple or will the trauma tear them apart? Just a few parts away from completion.
3) In theory a Max and Liz Epilogue story that I haven’t started. Don’t know.

New Long Stories

Whisper of a Distant Dawn

Author- PML

Disclaimer- Roswell is not mine and no infringement is intended.

Category- CC ALL

Rating- Mature

Summary- This story starts out right after Alex’s death, midway during the episode It’s Too Late and It’s Too Bad. Our heroes are shattered by the event, broken into warring camps. Isabel wants to escape. Michael worries over an increasingly distraught Maria. Max wants the whole issue to die down lest they draw too much attention. Tess wants Max.

Liz simply wants the Truth.

Be careful what you wish for.

Title- After the End

Author- PML

Disclaimer- Roswell is not mine. It is owned by Jason Katims, Melinda Metz, and Fox. This is for entertainment only and no infringement is intended.

Category- CC- ALL

Rating- Mature (For the later parts, most of it will likely stay in the teen area)

Summary- This is a challenge story. CC challenge number 121 by the estimable Killjoy. It can be found here. Although I might have to move that link once it moves to the taken thread. Now I don’t want to ruin any surprises for the reader who doesn’t want to know, but feel free to read it if you do.

Just know that it takes place after season three. Our heroes have been on the run for more than three years and finally have found a place to settle down, if only for a little while.

But as always, things are about to change. This prologue should give you some clue as to how.

--
Well here we are again. Another new story for me. Sigh. Should I be posting another story with all the others I already have out there? Probably not. Is it going to stop me? Apparently not.

This is after all something I promised that I would continue. It is afterall the sequal to A Teardrop of Fire. Don't expect this story to be a full 50k words however. The rest of the story will be broken up into three sections, of which this is the first.

Anyway, I hope you folks enjoy.

A/N - This prologue is like the prologue to Teardrop. What is in here matters, but is not directly relevant to our heroes lives. That will pick up in chapter one. Which I will hopefully have sometime later this week.

Title- A Citadel of Stone

Disclaimer- Roswell is not mine. It is owned by Jason Katims, Melinda Metz, and Fox. This is for entertainment only and no infringement is intended.

Category- AU /CC

Rating- Mature (Violence, Adult situations)

Summary- This is the second book of the Elementals. The first book was A Teardrop of Fire. That book detailed the misadventures of two groups of people, one native to the planet of Antar, the group of friends once branded the ‘Royal Four’ at Caredon University, and the crew of the Roswell, a ship from the Aralian Worldship New Mexico.

The Royal Four barely survive the intrigue that is tearing their world apart, as the crew of the Roswell gets stranded on their planet. And now a choice faces them. Antar is being torn asunder. Do they intervene or do they let the world slide closer to hell? For the two groups have become fused into one, seemingly by chance.

But there remains the mystery of Antar’s past and the mysterious artifact known as the Granolith. As well as Antar’s Necklace, a group of powerful battle satellites that protect the world form outside invaders…. And trap the crew of the Roswell on the planet.

They are stuck with a downed spacecraft and many hard choices ahead of them. Choices that may resonate much farther and with much more importance than they could possibly aware of.

Title- Across the Far Horizon

Author- PML

Disclaimer- Roswell is not mine. It is owned by Jason Katims, Melinda Metz, and Fox. This is for entertainment only and no infringement is intended.

Category- AU/CC

Rating- Mature

Summary- Maxwell Evans is a Mage Adept of extraordinary skill. He has spent years honing his mastery of the elements and has many lucrative opportunities awaiting him upon graduation. But lately his dreams have been haunted. And he can not help feeling that something from beyond the Verge is calling him.

This is his story and those of his friends.
--
Title- In the Hall of the Mountain King

Author- PML

Disclaimer- Roswell is not mine. It is owned by Jason Katims, Melinda Metz, and Fox. This is for entertainment only and no infringement is intended.

Category- CC- ALL

Rating- Mature - Occasional bouts of violence and adult situations, mostly teen probably.

Summary- Good question. This is a NANO story and so will be quick paced, but honestly I am making it up as I go along. I hope you folks enjoy. It is a future fic with fantastic elements, naturally. It starts several years after the episode Graduation, but the changes start during that episode as you will see in the Prologue.
