Here is an extra little something I’ve written for The Connor Wars. The fanfic that picked up where the second season finale of Terminator – The Sarah Connor Chronicles left off.
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.
Fate (alternate ending)
When I designed The Connor Wars, I intentionally structured it so that either side could plausibly win. It wasn’t until toward the end of the 3rd season that I actually committed to a victor. Even so, I was prepared until the very end to change my mind if necessary.
I actually sketched out an alternate ending for “Fate” that picked up where John and his remaining deltas left off when they entered Skynet’s core…except, in this case, the resistance loses. The pages below are that sketch. It was never polished up good and proper like the released script. There are some passages I would have fixed to make events clearer, dialog I would have broken up, typos I would have fixed (I left them in), and I likely would have tweaked some scenes–but the essence is here.
I’m viewing this as alt-canon. Had these events transpired, this is what would have been in the official canon. As it didn’t, it isn’t. So, its canonicalness is purely in the alt-history realm.
(With the size it is, and if it didn’t do it automagically, 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.
