    Soaps.com Explores Soap Opera Fan Fiction.

    Tuesday, December 27 2011

    Fan fiction is the next best thing to watching the show.

    We’ve lost so many of our soap operas in the past few years. Fans are missing the soap characters they’ve grown accustomed to seeing each day over the years. With that in mind, Soaps.com decided to bring your beloved characters, and not so beloved characters back to life via Fan Fiction.

    We’ve already shown you what could have happened if Erica Kane was shot by JR on AMC. Fan reactions were interesting. Julie D says, "Maybe it is just too soon for it...I know I am still in mourning and we haven't even had to face the day without "OLTL" yet." Another fan, Gary W, has another way of thinking. "You have to take what you can out of life and this may be the only way we can get a conclusion to these shows."

    Why should we miss our characters when we can bring them back to life? I for one have asked one of the writers if they’d perhaps explore what would happen if Maureen Bauer and Roger Thorpe on "Guiding Light" were still around. Another writer thinks it might be fun to write what could have been if Ethan and Theresa weren’t fated to be together on "Passions." There are so many stories left for these characters we loved or loved to hate, and we hope many of the fans will appreciate our attempt to give you a piece of something lost.

    When "As The World Turns" was cancelled, Carly had just found out she was pregnant. This fiction piece starts nine months later. Carly And Jack Welcome A Baby. We won’t say if it’s a boy or a girl. We’ll leave that surprise for you!

    At the end of "Passions," Tabatha relinquished her powers and confessed her sins in order to save Harmony. What happens when she needs those powers after all the kids of Harmony start disappearing? Find out in Passions Fan Fiction: Saving Harmony.

    Look for more stories starting January 10, 2012. I heard a teaser that Richard Winslow may be brought back to life or written back in as if he had never died. Fans are encouraged to email us through the site with their storyline ideas.

    In B&B, it would be nice if they can bring back Darla and Phoebe. These two characters were loved by many and it is quite easy to concoct a scene that they were kidnapped by aliens (LOL) or something and returned to earth. Also, it would be interesting to see characters paired appropriately. Fans have asked for Bill and Steffy to be paired for many months and Hope and Liam's reunion, but the writers are not adhering to the likes and dislikes of viewers and when ratings are dropping, they wonder why!

    Christine, this is an excellent idea. When "Star Trek" was cancelled, many fans wrote stories and published them in fanzines. Professional writers also published books. Then fans met at conventions. Star Trek was revived in movies. Then other Trek series aired on TV. The rest is history. There are many fans who miss ATWT, AMC and other cancelled soaps. I'm sure you will receive many interesting plot ideas and stories. Break a leg.

    I have been surviving on Liz and Jason GH fan fic's for years. Ever since the didn't let them get married and killed Jake off. I only watch to support the show from going off. The total rewrite of Liz and Jason has been a total disaster for this show. Sorry killing a little boy to PIMP A BAD COUPLE is just beyond any reason to do what GH has done. Jason would have NEVER gone back to Sam after what she did. I love and support Steve B. and Becky H. with the junk they have given to these to fav's.

    Hey Soapqueen, maybe we will do some fan fiction for the current shows and bring those two back. Is anyone interested to see that?

    Hah - Lara Kroft, this is exactly what gave me the idea to do this. My friend reads the Star Trek fan fiction and loves it and when I heard how much she liked it, I thought we should give it a shot. Thanks for your support!

    Jynx0854 I feel for you, not being able to see your couple get together on the screen. Thank goodness for Fan fiction. I only wish we had done this sooner. Maybe we have to do one piece for your couple on GH!!

    It's not the same as Continuing to Watch New Episodes of the Soaps whether it is Online OR on A Cable Channel. However, I Watch some Episodes in the Past on YouTube even though that is not the Same as New Episodes. However, I Cried just as much on YouTube of Bianca being Reunited with Miranda as I did when I Watched that on ABC. However, If we just have Fan Fiction; then I can't See Vincent being David Hayward doing Things with His Baby whether it is to Feel the Baby Move or Kick or have it Take Its First Steps or Say Preferably Dada. I want to see that the Most. I want to see David Hayward be Happy. Jody
