Ghost

I believe its a do-over main character was named chance I think. He also was something of musical prodigy.

sorry too many stories have Chance in the summary and none of the Do-over stories list Chance as a name in the summary. If there's any more you can remember that may help with a search, please mention it. Name of a major location or other major character would help.

its been years and all I can remember for sure is his name he's just starting high school I think and might live on a farm. I think he might also be a mechanical genius? I think he helps his parents by balancing the accounting books for the farm? could possibly be a travel back in time?

This is beginning to sound something like A New Past.

The one thing against it is that he is no kind of musical prodigy. Since he has the memory of inventing fusion, he sets out to do it again.

A Second Chance by Old Man with a Pen.


isn't the character's name in that David?

Ghost

a new past is really good but not the story I'm looking for.

redlion75

the conductor series is about a musical prodigy,but none of the rest.i was wondering if maybe more then 1 story was being jumbled up?

Ghost

conductor is good but the story takes a back seat to all the lyrics and making sure the credit gets done properly. this character I'm thinking of sees music or something different than just being a prodigy. it is definitely hazy its been years since I read it and I read ridiculous amount of stories on here and it irks me I can't recall more of this story I'm asking about.

I cant help with name of story, but the mc was named buck. His nickname was chance I think. He tried to kill himself in bathtub with hairdryer. I think thats the story ghost is hunting.good luck.

miksmit that's it I think... now if only someone else can remember the name from here lol

Updated:

none of the stories with the tags of Time Travel or Do Over have a character with the name of Buck in their story brief. But it could be an older story from before they became available tags.

edit to add: Could also be they just didn't put the name in the story brief.

@miksmit

I read that description, i think that was also confused for de ja vu ascendancy because of the similar way they both went back in time, suicide in the bathroom.

Can't remember the name though.

Ghost

I've read about half of ascendency and its good just tedious sometimes.

@Ghost

yeah, he's working on a heavily revised version that's no where near as tedious - he's getting it ready for publishing.

miksmit

Ok then more details. Tried suicide because his parents were arguing about money. He had two sisters who were afraid of him because of the suicide. He had an older cousin who was disappointed that he made the attempt. And this older female cousin was the only one he told about future. They made some bets on sports.

It sounds familiar and for some reason I remember something about MC being an angel or something like that.

I also think the writer actually pulled the story from SOL because he did not know where to go with it but for the life of me I can't remember the name of the story.

Edit: Yep Sunspot2012 got the same story I was thinking about as well. I don't know where i got the idea he had removed it but that is it. I think I might re-read it this weekend.

miksmit

Holy blueballs. Sunspot2012 got it. That's the one I remembered. Now we just gotta hope thats the one ghost wanted.

The author stated in his blog on 6/2015 that he had lost his Muse and could not write. I know the feeling.
