Author has written 4 stories for Misc. Comics, and Chuck.

First of all, I feel somewhat presumptuous to have selected this name, but, in my defense, this is the 6th or 7th name I tried before finding one that hadn't been taken. And thanks to my good friend JohnnyRayChandlett, I now have an avatar of Willie. (I don't really look like that.)

Reading the profiles of some of the authors on the site, I see that I'm not alone in whatever mental quirk leads me to write. I get an idea in my head and can't get it out unless I write it down. I've been doing that for a while, but never shared what I wrote until now.

I'm a huge Modesty Blaise fan. Peggy was inspired by a conversation I had with a young woman cousin, telling her about my favorite characters. There's almost no activity on the site about Modesty and I'd love to see that change. I'm having a ton of fun with the submissions I'm making for Chuck and I would invite anyone who likes Sarah Walker to check out Modesty Blaise. Just google her name and see what comes up.

Found Chuck summer of '18 and binge watched all 5 seasons in about 3 weeks. Charah is the main reason I liked the show. I think I fell a little bit in love with Sarah Walker, but that's embarrassing, so please don't tell anyone. I guess I like strong women characters. I hated the last two episodes of the show and really, really hated the ambiguous ending. Sarah vs. the Kiss is the result. That story has been continued by my friend LetsGoRed in the story Chuck and Sarah vs. the Hello. You should read it too. Next to the ending, my least favorite scene was where Sarah beat up Chuck in the house with the red door. I tried to fix that in Chuck vs. the Hail Mary, and then extended it into a second chapter, for the end of that episode. Currently having a blast writing Chuck vs. A New Day. I hope this doesn't sound too crazy, but I'm actually enjoying this fan fiction community more than I enjoyed the show. Nuts, right?

Seems that New Day is growing long enough that it might benefit from a table of contents (of sorts), so here goes:

Chapters 1 - 5: First season, first episode, Andric Arc. [First Arc]

Chapters 6 - 12: First season, second episode, Zarnow Arc. [Second Arc]

Chapters 13 - 19: First season, third episode, La Ciudad Arc. [Third Arc]

Chapters 20 - 25: First season, fourth episode, Alahi Arc. [Fourth Arc]

Chapters 26 - 31: First season, fifth episode, Lo Pan Arc. [Fifth Arc]

Chapter 32: First season, sixth episode, Mahnovski Incident. [Meh...]

Chapters 33 - 40: First season, seventh episode, Stanford Arc. [Sixth Arc]

Chapters 41 - 45: First season, eighth episode, Payne Arc. [Seventh Arc]

Chapters 46 - 54: First season, ninth and tenth episodes, Larkin Arc. [Eighth Arc]

Chapters 55 - 64: First season, eleventh episode, Kirk Arc. [Ninth Arc]

Chapters 65 - 72: Non-canon, Selenica Arc. [Tenth Arc]

Chapters 73 - 81: First season, twelfth episode, Federov Arc (with a quick stop in Washington DC on the way home). [Eleventh Arc]

Chapters 82 - 86: First season, thirteenth episode, Lizzie Arc and its repercussions. [Twelfth Arc]

Chapters 87 - 90: Third season, fifteenth episode, Von Vogel Arc. [Thirteenth Arc]

Chapters 91 - 100: Non-canon, Rosetti Arc. [Fourteenth Arc]

Chapters 101 - 105: Second season, first episode, Cipher Arc [Fifteenth Arc]

Chapters 106 - 113: Second season, fifteenth and sixteenth episodes, Perseus Arc [Sixteenth Arc]

Chapters 114 - 118: Second season, ninth episode, Bennett Arc [Seventeenth Arc]

Chapters 119 - 125: Non-canon, Chíra Arc [Eighteenth Arc]

Chapters 126 - 134: Second season, second episode, Banacheck Arc [Nineteenth Arc]

Thanks for the reviews and PM's (and shout outs). It's really gratifying to know that some of these ideas have resonance with other like-minded folks out there. And, truth be told, this is pretty fun.

Sarah vs Fulcrum by Steelejay reviews
This is the continuation story of Sarah vs. Asking Chuck Out. You should read that first. I marked that story complete because I felt like they'd made it through the first part of their journey. This will be a more plot driven story but still with the all the Charah you can handle. It's marked at T but be forewarned, it's a hard T, with an asterisk. Adult interactions do occur.

One of the things I always felt bad for Chuck about was the fact that Sarah asking him out in the pilot wasn't real. So this is my AU where it is real. Sarah just needs help with her phone and meets a great guy at a time in her life when she's open to the prospect of something different. Written from Sarah's perspective.

Start of Season 2. The very idea that Casey entertained carrying out the termination order bothered me no end. I always wondered how Chuck and Sarah would have reacted to finding out that Casey had almost carried out the termination order. This is Chuck's attempt to confront Casey about betraying him and his trust. Can you ever really trust a spy?

A/U story. What if Chuck and Sarah were a couple from the very beginning? How would that change the evolution of the stories? Here's my take on answering those questions. This story is, internally, broken up into arcs which (sort of, mostly) conform to episodes of the show. There's a rough table of contents on my profile page. Reading them in order is suggested.
