Randomness On The Topic Of A Soap Opera Fanfic Of Mine  
So...

I guess it's having Jonathan Jackson back on General Hospital as Lucky, but I've been working on my old GH fic 'The Ties That Bind' (loving referred to as TTTB form here on out... lol) again...

This fic has basically been my enver ending baby for YEARS now... I think I started it in '02 or '03. almost certainly when Jacob Young was playing Lucky because I was so disillusioned by the JY Lucky (while Greg vaughn made me love Lucky again)... Thing is, this fic is at 103 chapters (I'm almost done writing 103 in fact!), and it is nowhere near finished. There's still this HUGE amount of stuff I want to have happen... I kinda want this fic to go on forever... lol...

TTTB has had so many twists and turns, not all of them good... Lucky discovering he was actually a Cassadine, Mikkos' return fromt he dead, Emily being kidnapped while pregnant... Leo's brush with death right after being born... Carly throwing her stiletto at a bad guy... Lila's death...

This fic once consumed me, and I think it could again, even though pretty much no one on my friends list is a GH fan... hell, I don't think anyone on my FList but Bri and Becca are Soap fans at all... lol

However... me being crazy, I keep wanting to bring more fandoms into this fic... I already included ER (Drs. Lewis and Carter did a couple months in Port Charles, New York, as part of the Doctors Exchange program), but there's so many other options... I mean, One Life To Live is an obvious choice... I'd love for Rex to somehow get tied up in the Penthouse goings on... maybe he and Lucky were friends for a short time while the Spencers were on the run... or Dorian enters into a business deal with ELQ... since TTTB is several years behind real time (it's only like 2001 or 2002 in TTTB), maybe when jessica's alter Tess emerges, she ends up in PC and falls for Jason...

Or what about Days Of Our Lives? Bo and Hope get jobes working for the PCPD and move to town with their son Shawn... they soon become deeply invovled in the Penthosue goings on, maybe because Shawn is kidnapped by Helena as revenge for the death of an old family friend, Stefano, and Bo and Hope end up going to the local WSB for help getting him back... Maybe they wind up beign recruited as another source within the PCPD to help keep Sonny and Jason out of jail and in charge of the PC Mob...

How about Guiding Light? Alan Spaulding and Edward Quartermaine would so be old friends, maybe Alan Q (Edward's son) was named after Alan S... and I would LOVE for Gus Aitoro to actually be a WSB agent, but he was posing as an FBI agent while on a deep cover assignment in Springfield... and maybe Lizzie S and Emily hung out at a spa once upon a time not long after Em was adopted by the Q's, and Lizzie S gave Emily tips on being a rich girl...

And then there's a somewhat obvious one... a GH character who has a decent sized role in TTTB is Alexis DAVIS. Maybe she's somehow related to Brooke DAVIS of One Tree Hill. Since Davis was Alexis' mother's name, maybe Brooke's dad is the nephew, or even younger brother of Alexis' mother, making them cousins? And after Brooke has a pregnancy scare in Tree Hill, her father sends her to her cousin to get her away from bad influences, not realizing the dangers of Port Charles are worse? Cue a Maxie Jones/Lucas Jones/Brooke Davis triangle! (Maxie and Lucas are cousins by ADOPTION only, Lucas' adoptive father is the brother of Maxie's biological father... on the actual soap, Lucas came out as gay a few years back, but I was writing Maxie/Lucas flirtation LONG before that happened, so... Maxie/Lucas pairing! lol)...

::sigh:: I'm crazy, I admit it. But this randomness? Is better than freaking out and stressing...
