Universal Theory  

I don't know how many people will be interested in this, but I've got a little confused myself about the different 'verses I've been writing, so I decided to write everything down here to explain continuity.

If Richie is alive past Archangel, then it falls into my L World universe. In that Richie did die, but I have resurrected him (see The Light for the explanantion). There is Duncan/Richie in the beginning of that verse (basically in the L World arc) but it doesn't last long. I will be explaining the end of their relationship at some point, just to tie everything together, but I basically see it as an expression of their deep feelings for each other that was really just in the moment and burned out quite quickly. 

Alternatively I may remove the relationship from the 'verse. There are a number of things about The L World I am unhappy with, the rather slash-happy tone being one of them. I will probably edit it when I've got a little less on my plate. What can I say? It was my first fic, I intended it to be my only fic, so I wrote everything I wanted to see in one fic! Mea culpa.

The major stories that fall into that 'verse are my Xmen crossover and my Firefly crossover.

The Immortal Giles series is most definitely a separate 'verse, and it doesn't interact with any of the other stories.

If I don't stray from canon (beyond it being a crossover if it is one) then the story belongs within the canon 'verse of whatever series.

I hope that makes sense, apologies if it doesn't. :)

Thoughts and comments appreciated.

I like the 'slash happy tone' of the L World, but then being a slash fangirl, I suppose I would; don't change it too much (will be cross if you take Jack/Methos out of it). I think it's a damn fine fic, especially for a first one! The way you've dealt with Richie being back explains his presence a lot more than my attitude of 'it didn't happen'.

I think continuity posts if you're writing different 'verses are a good idea. I've never bothered, but then I've only really written in one AU, everything else pretty much can be slotted into the subtext of canon.
But, I don't want to be a pie,: bombidontlikegravy on September 13th, 2007 05:24 pm (UTC)
Don't worry, Jack/Methos isn't going anywhere. In fact that's a relationship I intend to explore a little more at some point in the future. :)

I won't be changing it dramatically, and it won't be for a while yet as I've got about six WIPs in the works as well as highlander50 and highlander flashfic challenges to complete. It's just little tweaks where I feel I forced things a bit.

I think it's a damn fine fic, especially for a first one!

*blushes* Thank you very much, that means a lot. :)
