2. It's an experiment.
As my fellow writers could tell you, one of my favorite phrases is "It'd be neat
if..." and this is one of those ifs. A few months back I wondered what it would
be like to get a group of people to write a series of fics, each writer
independently writing a story (rather than round-robin style). Being me, I
promptly forgot about it until something reminded me of it not too long ago. I
also thought it would be interesting to start with the titles- each author
picking the title of the fic they'd write- giving them to a non-involved party
to decide the order of fics to be written. Fortunately, the five writers I
invited to be part of the series agreed!
Once we had the titles and the
order, we hammered out the basic plot arch, which will be a revisionist view of
half-way through season seven on. Rather than deal with super soldiers, we
decided to continue the black oil arch abandoned in season six. Where it goes
from there, you'll have to wait and see :)
