One Sentinel, One Guide
Fanfiction by ljc
Stories so far:

When I 'date' a story, it's the date it was started. I'm one of those people that can't reread anything without tweaking it just a little, or a lot, if need be. So therefore, to me, it's never perfect, but hopefully approaching 'better'.

One Path  181 KB
Summary: AU. What if destiny plays it's part a little differently and their paths merged before they even met. Now for their future . . . it's not TSbBS. Rated PG for a few words.

Fourteen Angels   33 kb    
Summary: Based on a lullaby from the opera 'Hansel and Gretel' by Engelbert Humperdinck written between 1890-1893. It contains the line “fourteen angels watch do keep”. Warning: An upsetting death of an oc.
Feral Sentinel     33 kb    
Summary: AU. The consequences and responsibilities of ownership. Very dark. Very intense. Not a nice sentinel/guide story. I don't want you to read this with the wrong expectations. Lots of hurt, no comfort. This is not our Jim. Torture is described. You are warned. Rating: R for adult situations.

Added 5/31/05
Night Train  Epilogue     18 kb
Summary: Complete here in two parts. 1. The morning after the cold medicine. 2. Several weeks later, a truth is told. No warnings. Rated: G.
Five Moments in Time   8 kb

 What We Dont Know    38 kb

Added 6/13/05

Added 6/14/05
Feral Sentinel 2    32 kb
 Summary: AU. I never intended to write a sequel to my story 'Feral Sentinel' but Judy Seils asked a good question, “I wonder if there is a penalty for abusing your guide thus?” Thanks for the feedback Judy. Rating for Feral Sentinel part 2: PG-13. A few bad words. No torture. No bonding. Comfort? Not really.

Added 6/22/05

The Letters  27kb
Summary: 1. Blair's got angst, and he's pretty harsh. 2. So does Jim, but it's closer to the truth (in my humble opinion). 3. Some people come up with a plan (all I can say about this one is that I was getting tired of all that angst, but I left it the way it was:). Complete in three parts.

Added 8/7/05

Summary: A very short piece. A memorial for a couple of very minor but important (to the sentinel and guide) characters. No warnings. Rated G.
Valor  13kb
Summary: Is valor a result of being in the right place at the wrong time, or is it ingrained in one's character? How much can one person lose before he turns away from anything that promises closeness? No warnings. Rated PG for a word. Spoilers for The Switchman and Siege.
