What story or story line would you most like to see finished or extended?

TestSubject001

Doesn't have to be incomplete. It could be a story that the author left room for a sequel.

For me it would have to be colt45's Sea King saga.

I know Jay Cantrell has said he has no plans to write more of it, but I would love to see some spinoffs from his Daze in the Valley story. Specifically some prequels leading up to how some of the characters wound up getting into porn.

Scout by Warlord as well as his other stories like Atlantis
Privateer by DeRat, good story and a sequel was promised but nothing for years.
if incomplete and abandoned, okay that's life but at least add a post script or epilogue to why and a synopsis to how it would have gone and ended or such. don't leave readers hanging

ElSol has a few stories that I'd like to see get sequels. Particularly, I'd love sequels to any of The Wolf Summers, The Power, and All These Things That I've Done. I also wish for AMR and Achilles and Hephaestus to be finished, but I understand why they aren't.

There was a series on Lit that I loved, it has since been removed, I wish I had saved it. Anyway the author couldn't finish, so he just basically wrote a few paragraphs on what he had planned. It was called A life moves in.

@Jim S

I seem to remember that at least one other book in the Jade Force of Miseria series is planned, possibly posted after Lazlo Zalezac's current story is finished.

LonelyDad

@Tbeartx

A good few of those characters show up in 'Flawed Diamond'.

Tbeartx

True lonely dad, but they are really extraneous to the story. I am talking about reading the story of Cassie Charms or Ashley Malibu for example, before they started in porn. Jay gives us some info about the early lives in the story, but just about any of the characters could have a prequel that tells us how they got there that I would find interesting to read.

But I know Jay has pretty well mapped out his writing for the next several years, and has expressed clearly no desire to continue the storylines. Though I think it would be fun to see the crew from Unforgettable Weeks meet up with the Daze in the Valley crew when they head out to Stanford for college. Although with them heading to Stanford, it would be hard to make the connection to LA.

I've never really been interested in Prequels.
We already know what happens, and how things got to that point just doesn't interest me.
If it was that interesting, the author would have written about it first, then written the story that we now have.

Lazlo's Donaldson series. I recall reading that he had a 4th story planned, but so far it hasn't been posted. I would enjoy several more in that series.

A number of Volentrin's stories such as a sequel to Gate would be nice, if his heirs would permit such a sequel. I found the MC moving between the 1800's and today's timeframe interesting.

More of Thinking Horndog's Swarm stories would be nice. Stories in Lazlo's Damsels-in-Distress Universe are always good, but I prefer stories meeting the early guidelines; at least I suspect there were guidelines established when Lazlo opened his Universe to other authors.

I agree with most that have been listed thus far. I would add two that I'd like to see extended. First, Ezzy B's "Chaos" series should at least continue long enough to let us know about how the kids handle adulthood and fame.

I'd actually like to see a finish to "Alan" by Julian Coreto. It was the first story that got me into SOL and I find myself rereading it every few months or so. I'll go ahead and admit that even if Julian Coreto could not finish this story for whatever reason, I'd be willing to pick up the baton and try to finish it myself.

I can't think of a better compliment to and unfinished story than "as a fellow writer, I'd love to try and help you finish the story."

The best compliment for a completed story is and always will be, "I wish I had written that."

"Private" from Random Writing ...


I just read this one and absolutely agree I'd like to see it continued.

The problem is, I make bookmarks of various stories that are recommended as I'm reading various threads on various forums, and for some reason I had it in my head when I started reading this one that it had been completed. When I got to the end and realized I'd come across it because of this thread I was steamed.

Collar My Heart by C. Stanton Leman & Candice Sawyer


I would be interested in additional stories set in that reality as well as a "post apocalyptic prequel" to that story.

Crumbly Writer

I'm always amused, when I assume I've officially 'ended' a story—usually by killing off the protagonist, or sending them to live on an alien world for the next fifty years—by how many people will write me requests sequels.

How the hell do you write more about someone who's died? I mean, you could always do a prequel, but that's not what they're asking. Although, in one case, I came up with a handy short story (which I never wrote) and in another, they wanted to hear about what everyone else did once he passed on.

@Crumbly Writer

In some stories, the Universe or setting is so interesting that the reader likes to know what happens after. And it is not unheard of that writers switch protagonists in between novels.

So I understand the reason for readers to experience more of the story.
Most writers really just want to write new things and are often haunted by the most outspoken fans of a novel or universe that the writer himself has no desire to return to.

That's what I'd gathered (after readers kept asking for a sequel to "Singularity", where the lead characters dies and becomes an 'energy being' living among aliens. However, in my case, unless I can build a complete story (at least 18 chapters) I typically won't start another story (especially with a new cast). In one case, where I did return with an new cast (plus some characters from the original), the story never got much traction.

It was a classic, and it was going hot-and-heavy for a long time, but it's also an example of a story in need of an ending—as the author lost his way in his never-ending parade of adventures. If you aren't building towards an eventual ending, you've got few satisfactory ways of tying up loose ends. I can count numerous examples of great running serials (70+ chapter stories) which petered out with a weak 'they got married and lived happily ever after with dozens of partners each' endings.

In the case I specified, it seems to be the 'experimental' story-telling techniques I employed, which turned off more readers than they attracted. :( The story featured a young kid who talked to himself acting on his own—without a supporting cast to back him up.

For me, it's not a particular story but a particular author. Everything written by Marsh Alien is a gem. I've just reread "Battle of the Banns" for, perhaps, the tenth or twelfth time. I laughed as loudly as I did the first time I read it. He was a superb writer who always left me wanting more.

The Haven Series by A Strange Geek.

I don't know why this struck such a chord with me, but it did and I've been dying to know what's going to happen next. Of course, I love stories that are epic in nature, taking the time to develop everything. This series certainly qualifies.

I have a dozen questions about what has happened, how it happened, the ramifications of it happening.... I just really need to know what's going on and what it all means. I was hoping to have another installment by now, but I'm guessing the author dropped out of writing altogether.

For short stories that really piqued my interest -- Bargain Bin over on the mind control forums was a neat concept that I wish the author had continued. Sad to see it stop right when it was getting good.

I thought he hadn't finished either. Last blog entry I saw from him said he'd hit a dry spell with the Narlass stories and I was hoping it might mean a return to the Haven tale.

I never could get into the Narlass series for some reason. You'd think I would since it was the same author, but it fell rather flat after reading the Haven series.

I sent ASG an email some weeks back to see where things were with the stories, but haven't heard from him.
