Here is the fifth installment of Terminator – The Sarah Connor Chronicles fanfic that picks up where the second season finale left off. As I mentioned before, I was so enthusiastic about the possibilities presented when the season ended that I just had to keep it going regardless of what happens with the suits at FOX.
The first thing you’ll probably notice is that I changed the name of the series to Terminator: The Connor Wars. I think that more accurately conveys what this project will cover as well as it being a lot easier to say.
As I disclaim on the title page, this is just meant to be a bit of fannish fun in the long spirit of the various fan communities. I’m not intending to step on any toes.
Mrs Worthington’s Formal Tea
Yep, Sarah’s back. I know a lot of you got nervous with the events of the previous episode. All I can say is that you ain’t going to be rid of a certain Ms Connor. Not this season, at any rate.
You start to see that events in the past aren’t quite as “clean” as they seemed to be before. While it’s true that we aren’t having terminators time-travel back every other episode to complicate things, there are still many interesting stories to tell with our plain ol’ fallible humans…and some of their legacy.
Not that it’s all that much easier in the future with all of that metal roaming about, having ideas and notions. Somebody really should try to do something about that. Well, as it turns out, a lot of somebodies are trying to do something about that.
As usual, some answers, some set up, and a lot of room for y’all to speculate as to the future.
And yeah, I’ve entered the stage of: “Budget? What is this word you use–’budget’? Is it foreign?”
Have Your Say
To that end, I’ve left three episodes open in this middle part of the season to sort of play with (the first will be episode 8). If you have something you want to see, or some questions you want answered, or just a really cool totally off-the-wall idea, let me know. Just not a musical. There’s not enough time to write a musical (and I’m no good at that in any case). Other that that, as long as it isn’t something that will cause serious story problems down the road, I’m open to it.
Otherwise, you’ll be stuck with my own flights of fancy…and I don’t think we really need to stoop to that level.
[Quick update: it's now just two episodes (#10 and #14).]
(With the size it is, the PDF seems to read easier if you zoom to 66.7% and then scroll the text horizontally so it’s centered.)

Oh, and before I get emails about this. The PDF file I generated has the setting to allow people to print out the script turned off. If you are having trouble with the plug-in, click here.
