It’s a work of fanfic blah blah blah does anyone actually read these? This fic is based solely on the TV show so sorry if I’ve made any hideous book-related errors – you’ll have to tie me up and poke me with agiels for my transgressions.
Some chipmunks may have been harmed in the production of this fic, but it was for the greater good, honest, not some cheap joke.
To Lyric for beta-reading
This fic is intended as a replacement for the original season two episode “Unbroken” (episode 21) - you know, the one with the AU where Richard and Kahlan swan dreamily around the People’s Palace, Rahl looks goofy at weddings, Cara is a school teacher with bratty kids and Zedd…well, Zedd is a nobhead of immense proportions with too much powerful magic at his disposal.
It actually also replaces the last minute or so of episode 20 (i.e. in this fic Cara has stolen the Stone of Tears off Zedd, but not yet delivered it to Rahl) and the first four minutes or so of episode 22 (i.e. the bit where they do the spell on Dahlia in the AU to reset everything). This is to allow for a logical story. Otherwise it’s intended as a direct replacement – watch episode 20, read this, then watch episode 22, simples.
However, this way there’s no overblown *powerful magic*, no pointless AU’s, no Leo and no whacking of the great big RESET button in the sky. Instead I’ve tried to come up with a plausible alternative where everyone keeps their memories and lives intact, but we still get to carry on with the rest of “Tears” as was. I’ve attempted to stick close (ish) to TV show canon though obviously there’s slightly stronger overtones of C/K in it than the normal TV show (though I would suggest only slightly!)( Read the fic under the cut - Part 1Collapse )
