by Deslea R. Judd (deslea)
at September 4th, 2010 (03:00 am)
current mood: accomplished

Title: Convergence
Author: Deslea R Judd
Fandom: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Character/Pairing: Sarah/Derek. Romance, angst, with a fair helping of plot/retcon
Rating: NC17 for some adult moments
Warnings: Spoilers for the whole series.
Summary: Sarah never got to tell John that they had family still. But she knew what she had to do to save all of them. And the world.
Disclaimer: Characters not mine. Interpretation mine.
Author Notes: This story works as a standalone piece; however, there is also a second story coming soon in the same universe, called Paradigm Shift. I am separating it out because the second story is more of an ensemble piece.

Dude. This story is awesome! And so believable IMO. I can seriously see this really happening. And it would answer where all those minor characters disappeared to that knew about the truth lol. I always wondered where Lauren would go with a new born child to take care of that has Terminators after her. With Sarah. Just not the Sarah of her time.

And I really like this whole idea... Sarah fixing her mistakes with John. It's like this story answers the question posed in my vid "Where Did I Go Wrong?"

Even though she tried her best with John, she did make some mistakes and was "blessed" with another child to do better by him (I'm not sure of the word blessed... yes, of course she's blessed with another child, but still.. what a damn hard life she knows that boy is gonna have too). Btw, even though we saw little of him, I really like J.D. Sort of like the teenager I expected John to be after watching T2.

And I love how it all fits back in place with the ending of BtR. Sooooo looking forward to the follow-up. When is that expected? Greedy, I know.

tscc future out the window

Thank you so much!

And I actually think your vid had something to do with the thought processes that started this story, you know. There had been a vague, "Dude, what if Sarah was pregnant instead of dying" plotbunny, and another one about going back and doing some sort of retcon on BtR, and another about Sarah agonising over theories of time travel and thinking (rightly or wrongly) that he might just cease to exist in there because of the father-from-the-future paradox. But I think your vid might have been the thing that brought them all togethet.

I tried to keep J.D.'s airtime down, because original characters are such a delicate balance, but I like him, too. And he's fun to write as an adult, too - he's shaping up like a bit of Derek and a bit of John. But he's still going to need John after all. I think John Connor is always going to be the messiah, even when he isn't. ;) Unfortunately, the followup won't be for maybe five or six weeks - I'm going on an overseas trip in between.

And I've been meaning to tell you just. How. Much I love Boulevarde of Broken Dreams, by the way. Do you have it available for download? It's definitely ipod-worthy.

This was Crazy epic and quiet heart breaking.

I found myself rooting for a youg Derek and Sarah getting together again to raise the baby.

The smut was ... really well written.

I'm also glad that Sarah had a baby boy ... there is just to many pregnancy stories with little girls in this fandom it seems.

You have nailed every story you've have ever written and for that you win at life!

Sorry this is late, I've been away!
tscc derek sarah promo

Sorry for replying so long after the fact. I've been hopping through Central America (including Bocas del Toro, actually! I thought of Sarah and Derek...). Net access has been, well, less than great. ;)

Thank you so much for the kind words, and yeah, we do have lots of baby girls, when people have babies at all. (There are fewer babies in this fandom than in X Files - you were tripping over them every second fic there).

I'm working on the follow-up as we speak...

sarah derek my reese

Despite a *bit* of eye-rolling at JD being only 16 when Sarah puts him in charge of the whole camp (that gave me flashbacks of when fans were wanting teenage John to start barking out orders), I really enjoyed this story. It was sweet and lovely and unique and it totally sucked me in. Well done!

imagine dare you to love me

Thank you so much!

I did toy with the idea of Sarah going back to John's real birth in 1984-5 so J.D. would be older, but it didn't work for a couple of reasons. Firstly, she might have been alive in Kyle's time, which kind of made me uncomfortable. I thought it would have been a distraction somehow. And also she might have been getting a bit too old to pull off the reunion thing and the time-jump-after-John thing. I sort of figured, young-Leader-J.D. could work if he had Sarah and Derek behind him. I saw him a bit like the older kids in my son's Army cadet corps - they have rank and they lead, but in a contained situation.

This made me cry! A good type of cry, though :)

So I love you and hate you at the same timeXD

You really nailed Sarah and Derek (in all meanings of the word) in this fic :)
