A long time ago -- on Earth! (July 1946)
Young Jack Crichton makes a career decision....
2007 Terra Firma Fanfiction Awards, Past Fic (Third Place)
This was written for the Second Starburst Challenge
at Terra Firma, which required you to write about one of the Farscape
characters as a child, preferably with some foreshadowing. This was actually inspired by Old John's story about camping in Maine with his father in The Locket
I tell you, I've never done so much research for a fic before -- especially not for one that's not even 1500 words long! Then again, I've never written a period piece before, either....
Many thanks to CretKid, CrystalMoon, Crash and ScaperRed for sharing some family history/reminiscences of "The War," and to Crash for taking a look at my rendition of Maine.... And who knew you could google "1940's boys clothing"? Blame me for any historical inaccuracies (I took at least one liberty, but I don't think it's important, LOL!)
