Loz Cola

Set up shop. Stolen the furniture. I'm stuffed...

So. I had more Life on Mars dreaming. One of them contained my first cracked out theory.

What if Sam Tyler were a character in a television series who, by supernatural agent, became a 'real person' transported into 1973, imbued with false memories? Gene, Ray, Chris, Annie, all quite real. Sam? Not so much.

I don't for a second think that's it, but that's what my brain is offering up at 5 of a morning.

Urban scrumping...

These are stories that have been languishing on my hard drive for a while and will never actually get finished because I have come up against a blockade with each of them. In a bid to divorce myself from it all and wipe the slate clean, I post the remnants for your viewing pleasure.

Never Know Anything [Gen, PG, 342 words]

Sam's forgotten he's from the future (in a different way to "Forgetting Tomorrow" - a more sensible way, actually.)

Collapse )

ParalleloSam [Gen, PG, 350 words]

What if our Sam was from a parallel world? And what if there was a corresponding 1973-style Sam who swapped places with him?

Collapse )

Door Number One [Gen, M 15+ for language, 968 words]

What if Gene knew Sam was from the future? Because things weren't quite as they seem?

Collapse )

Keep Smiling Through [Gene/The Missus, G, 2540 words]

The first part of this exists in a slightly different form in “Your Heart was an Open Book”. The title is from the Vera Lynn song “We’ll Meet Again” [any man who likes Roger Whittaker probably has a place in his heart for Vera ;) ]

How Gene won Clara's heart. Except not, because I can't get past him returning from National Service, no matter how hard I try.

Collapse )

I'll probably come back and take out phrases or aspects I like for something else. I tend to do that a lot. But, I very much doubt I'll have the inclination to try and get any of these to work in the form they are now.
