Story of Faith and... things  
*fumbles with links and buttons* Not sure I remember how to do this...

So. I was re-reading what I wrote a couple of days ago and just noticed that I said LJ has never met Kellerman. Right. Sure. Except when Kellerman killed his mother, his step-father and tried to kill him. Maybe I need a rewatch? But if I do a rewatch, I'm not writing anymore, and my writing is slow enough these days that I don't need anything slowing it down even more.

This is still for Story of Faith. I'm still writing Story of Faith. I guess one could tell that "story of faith" is the double-meaning-est title ever. I am making progress and hopefully nearing the end, though, which means I won't (totally) have wasted tuesdaeschild's time and patience, nor the help/encouragement of two other nice ladies for the early chapters. Will there be someone around here to read it and comment when I'm done, that's another question I take care no to ask myself for now ;)

Also, I thought the damn story would be 15.000-ish words. I'm at 47.000 and counting. First and probably last time that I write something so long for Prison Break. First time in years that I write something so long, and certainly first time ever that I write something so long in English.

On a side note, prompting for rounds_of_kink is open until Thursday 15. Now, I could tell you that you should go and prompt for any show (you should), but primarily, you should prompt (and then claim) for Prison Break because I need my fix of fics and feel alone over there - and obviously, this all about me :p

ETA: Arggh. Why did LJ translate the "moods" thing? They just sound so... weird. Actually, why did LJ translate anything at all because there's some pretty odd French around here! I guess I'll have to switch my LJ language to English :-/

Awww *hugs*

I write a lot of Michael/Lincoln (uh, you may have noticed?) so just to be clear, this is not a Michael/Lincoln story at all, except (hopefully) in the way the show was, with Michael obsessing equally about Sara and Lincoln.

Ooooh, the damn thing doesn't quite write itself :-p There has been a lot of struggling and whining and mucho cheer-leading by tuesdaeschild. I started thinking about the fic three or four years ago, started writing it two years ago, and I've been "nearing the end" for... six months? But the time I finish it, edit it, have it beta, I hope to post it after the summer. Well, before the end of the year, worst case scenario :-p That being said, there's totally a case of deviation from the initial plan, length-wise! Initially, I had in mind the way to change the ending and things I disliked in S4 and wanted to fix, but no plot whatsoever. So of course, trying to make it work by adding a semblance of plot made it considerably longer than I'd imagined.

Anyway, I hope the story won't disappoint you, and feel free to annoy me a lot ;)

(tackle hugs)

Oh no, don't worry I don't mind at all. I'm still going to love it, I remember you telling me about this story and that it was more Sara/Michael centred. You told me it's kind of like an alternative ending to PB? I adore Michael and Lincoln and I love them to death, and they're my thing. But I didn't hate Michael/ Sara, I just loved the brotherhood a lot more.

A while back I searched for stories with alternative PB endings, and I was disappointed when I didn't find anything. However Foxy linked me to one that was worth reading, Sparks, I think... So I'm really REALLY looking to reading your take on how PB should have ended. :)

Ooh and the fact that the idea has been running around in your head for so long means you've got so much more to be proud of once it's done! :D

Initially, the plan was to give equal importance to Sara and Lincoln - in addition to Michael, of course - but I guess the muse didn't quite agree? Lincoln is definitely around, but the story focuses more on Sara and Michael's POVs.

It's not so much an alternate ending than wish fulfillment a continuation. The point was to take into account as much of the canon as possible and resurrect Michael - or explain how he never died and where he's been for four years. Honestly, it's not very original, but I keep writing post-series stories where he's alive, and I needed to rationalize how this was possible :-p

I've never read Sparks :( Seven by rosie_spleen and wrldpossibility was good (and after reading it, for a while, I let go of my idea of writing Story of Faith because what was the point?) but I don't think it's available on line anymore. You also have In Dreams Projections by foophile... but checking the URL to link to it, I see you've already read it!

*hugs* Thank you for your encouragements :)

I don't think I'll ever be 'over' Michael Scofield's death, to be honest. It seemed so unnecessary, after everything he's done for those he loved. He gave them everything, most importantly, he gave them freedom. And Michael would never live to experience that freedom with Linc and Sara himself. But I guess that is the tragedy in it all... I love fics who change that. Fics that explores the possibilities beyond the fate Paul Scheuring saw for them. Eh, I feel depressed just thinking of it again, LOL.

I've read all of those! (However I'm not sure if I've read seven? I should check again) All such well-written and lovely stories. I only wish there was more :) Also, I can't seem to access the stories anymore, what the heck happened to prisonbreakfic.net?

Aw, you're welcome. I've really enjoyed your previous stories, and I'm glad you're doing this even though it's been so long since PB ended. *hugs*

LOL, don't start me on Michael's death! Five years later, the ending still makes me angry :-p That being said, I've spent so much time thinking and writing my damn fix-it fic that the actual ending feels less and less real to me.

I'm afraid prisonbreakfic.net is gone for good this time... The webmisstress had a habit of vanishing, and sometimes the site vanished for a few days too. People offered to help or to take care of it, but she hardly ever replied or even acknowledged the offers, and now it's been offline for months. So a lot of fic is gone or buried in (sometimes locked) live journals.

LOL, done! Let's not speak of Michael Scofield's death ever again. Besides the anger, it still really hurts. Especially when reminded of Lincoln's face when he realised his brother isn't coming back through that door. *casually lying on the floor sobbing*

Marilyn told me that as well. I'm really, really bummed about that. I was planning on exploring the site further once I've had more time or if the mood struck me again. I'm so disappointed about this, I can't even. :(

I've noticed the thing about locked LJ's. But I can never tell whether it's ok to ask to be let in in order to read their stories. I don't know... slowly the PB fandom is fading away completely and that thought makes me sad. Fanfictions is what kept PB alive. And now... eh.

There's fanfiction.net but I've never really read PB fic over there, I don't know what it's worth. Maybe try the Wayback Machine for prisonbreakfic.net? It won't have everything, but maybe you'll manage to find a few fics. There's also AO3 - I'm afraid a lot of the PB fic is actually mine *blushes* but other authors have posted too.

I'd tell you that you can always politely and honestly ask if they would add you or give you access to the fic... but I know how you feel and I'd probably wouldn't dare asking either :(

the PB fandom is fading away completely and that thought makes me sad.

I know, me too *hugs* I've always felt like the last two seasons of the show managed to alienate shippers and slashers, and that the state of the fandom would have been different if TPTB had managed their last seasons better, but maybe I'm deluding myself.

Thank you so much! I'm familiar with both fanfiction.net and Ao3 (Delicious site who has all the juicy stories ff.net aren't allowed to post}, but still it was nice to know that there's an entire site with just PB fanfictions.

but I know how you feel and I'd probably wouldn't dare asking either :(

yes, because the thing is there's a reason why it's locked... if they were up for everyone reading their stories, it wouldn't be locked. Asking is a little too awkward for me :(

Hugs <3 ... Yeah, it's hard holding on to something you know isn't really here anymore.. or it is.. but it's not here the way it should be.
