In Rubbernecking, we see what could have been if Corbett had known about Brandon all along… He would have happily left his failing marriage to be with Julie and his children. The Stackhouse family would have pooled their resources and started the family business. They would have had a better understanding of the children’s Supernatural needs…
Money isn’t the only thing that makes Rubbernecking such a fortunate strand of the braid.
What if, by some strange twist of fate, someone had taken Michelle’s car keys so she couldn’t kill herself by driving drunk?
What if Corbett and Julie continued to live in oblivion, not realizing there was another Stackhouse out there?
What if poor Sookie had been left in the care of the emotionally abusive and supernaturally ignorant woman who institutionalized her in other Verses?
What would Sookie be like after a childhood without the love and support of her family?
This story takes place in October of 2001… between Bright Things and Rubbernecking… and just a few short months before the Revelation.
This can’t possibly be a new verse? I must be seeing things… 🙂
that didn’t take you any time at all.
Um.. I’m having trouble finding the story… When I’m here there isn’t anything clickable and I can’t find away to see anything to read.. Is this not for everyone or am I doing it wrong? I’ve never had any trouble before.. 😦
Don’t think it’s posted yet; usually a 24-36 hour wait between title going up and chapter being posted
Oooopsie my bad. I guess I was a little eager! *blushes*
And also very very excited about verse #16….had been stalking Culture Shock and In the Family for updates. ..so much to anticipate:)
And Like a Rock and and and and… lol Great start to a new ‘verse!
loved it & already in need of my next fix 😉
p.s. I love the new “site help” button. haha
I was refreshing the main page, browsing for a verse to re-read and nearly fell off my chair!
Wow, this one looks like it will be dark. Kinda a flip side of Nuclear Winter, where Sookie is bitter and Twisted?
Sooo tempted to not wait for the email alert… Doh!
What do you mean not wait for the email alert?
what I mean to say is..what other choice is there but to wait for the email alert….
The BratPack knows as soon as the Betas have a chapter… and then as soon as the chapter is posted. No waiting. 😀
Actually, I meant I wasn’t going to camp out and continually refresh 😉
But now, not only have I already read it… I’ve followed your very helpful link and joined the ‘Pack’…
I was always horrid at Christmas time too… By the time I’d gotten up in the middle of the night to shake and rattle and peer through the thin paper, I was very rarely surprised at present time. I admit I am my own worst enemy in spoiling surprises 😛
*Blinks as I absorb this….*
Is that a private club or can anyone join? I’m willing to walk on coals for admission! 😀
they’re a private FB group, so what happens in the BP stays in the BP, but we have a very liberal admissions policy.
You need to be 18+
Awww really? Are you sure? I don’t wanna be rude and party crash or nothin’.
Not party crashing at all- we’re just ‘private’ because I write for ‘mature’ audiences,
And if its really and truly is cool with ya’ll, I humbly thank you for the invite and take you up on that!! ( I figure you meant it if you sent the invite), but I don’t want to seem pushy or rude. Goes against my Librarian genes to be so… 🙂
And I’ll tell you the same thing I told CaliforniaKat.. if I EVER win the lottery I’m SO paying you and her to write fan fic for us, your mass of fans. 😛
Aww thank you! I appreciate it. I’m getting mush so I’m just gonna shut up and join the club! 🙂
*mushy* not mush. *facepalm*
Enjoy the teaser thread. 3:)
Teaser thread….teaser thread.. omg My friends are going to call Guinness b/c this might actually be the impetus I need to become more facebook savvy.. Oh the crow I’m going to be eating over that! 🙂
