This was posted over on urbanfantasyfans, so I thought I'd do it.

The story of a pint-sized female villain, who managed to run a team of international criminals and go to school at the same time. Written at a time when  thought the epitome of cool was lots of black leather and a motorbike (*hangs head in shame*). I look back on it as a learning exercise.

The story of a submarine pleasure cruiser that has a tragic accident - most of the passengers get away safely, but some are left behind. The MC discovers them ten years later, under spoilertastic  circumstance.
Plans: I do want to rewrite this one.

In an effort to blackmail the mayor, a rather inept bad guy kidnaps who he thinks is the mayor's daughter. The girl is just a classmate of the mayor's daughter and of no blackmail value, so the plan fails miserably. Through a comedy of errors, he finds out that he's actually kidnapped his own estranged daughter. >_<
Plans: None

A quartet of stories revolving around a princess and her closest friends. Funny fantasy, but played straight - not a Shrek-tastic load of in-jokes and pop-culture references.
Plans: To be rewritten soon.

Second Chances
A SF work, involving a girl with a chip in her head, an unfinished genetic experiment and an ex-con foiling a meglomaniac's plans to take over the city. This then evolved into a much more serious work (original was rather funny), about the end of the world.
Plans: Oh, there are definitely plans, can't say much though.

The first version of what become Mirrorfall, back when it was still a cyberpunk world.
Plans: Has been rewritten, and is being released as Mirrorfall as we speak.

"The goddess story"
Standard "demon attempts apocalypse" type of story, with a few definite twists. Is now an integral part of the Mirrorfall-verse's history.
Plans: To be rewritten, now  that the universe has been set into place, and I know what I need from it.

My first attempt to smush together the worlds of Integrity and TGS - it involved Stef being the offspring of the TGS's main characters, and having inherited in that not-quite-genetic way, a few tricks of her own. It had merits, but didn't feel strong enough.

However, this was the first time that the Agents were referred to as Angels - something that has carried over, even though now it's in name only and they don't have the wings.
Plans: Scrapped and rewritten.

Was actually a serious attempt at writing a standalone novel in the Mirrorfall-verse that I was planning on shopping around to agents. It was going to be a story that hinted at what had come before, without the terrible strings of needing to be attached to a series. Most of the plot was recycled from a scrapped Doctor Who fanscript (much to some people's delight). Also allowed me to create an analogue of a character that I had previously believed I would never get to use again, as the nature of his being wasn't compatible with what I'd written.
Plans: Will definitely be released as a serial now, but not for a while.

Here Be Dragons

The gun in his face really wasn’t helping him think. Nor were the biting ropes that cut deep into his wrists, the constant friction making them bleed.

‘Tell me,’ the fat-faced bandit breathed, ‘where we go next.’

Story Title: Here Be Dragons

Here Be Dragons: Part Two

The feather-touch left his face, and he dared to look. It was no spectre. It was no banshee. It was just a moth. He watched it fly into a pool of shadow, then disappear.

He freed his hands – but continued on deeper. A dripping permeated the silence as he went further into the cave. Water dripped from a source above and into a shallow pool illuminated by one of the streams of light.

Airport Security Guy: How do you do that?
Doom: DO WHAT?
ASG: Speak all in capitals like that?
