Maynard Madness by Someone
[Reviews - 31]
Summary: The new re-vamped Maynard Madness! New user-friendly version! Now with:Consistency!A plot!Fewer stories!Some rhyme AND reason!Credibility!Understandability! (Hopefully!)A reading order!Once sandbox, now story!A universe centred (as the title suggests) on the Maynard family, and their friends (mostly OCs). It comes in two halves.In the first, watch as Jack Maynard drags himself through day after depressing day, and find out how he met a young schoolgirl who grows up to not only pull his skeleton from the closet, but also, as he sees her mature and go through problems of her own, steal his heart...In the second half, follow an expanded (drastically...) Maynard family back to the Sonnalpe as the Chalet School returns to its birthplace. Watch in sock and awe as they encounter danger, adventure, as well as a generous helping of friendship (you guessed it, more OCs) and fun.

Running Home by Someone Rated: General starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1]
Summary: 1. Where is home? Not here, for sure, somewhere I know, very far away.

2. There is no home. Home is gone. Now, it's just me, my plane and this awful war.

3. I have a home, but no-one there to greet me when I return.

4. I'm married, a father, but I'm stuck here curing soldiers and missing home.

Four characters, their stories entwined, one long journey home.

Only one of those four's an OC! Must be a record for me!

Fits both into Josie Goes to the Chalet School and Maynard Madness.

Summary: The Maynards. The perfect family. To the outside world, they seem to have everything: a nice house and car, lots of toys, lots of money.

Yet there are some things money can't buy, and there is, as sure as eggs are eggs, something sinister going on in the Maynard household. Why, then, does Joey Maynard never go out, and why are all the girls of Upper IVB scared stiff of her daughter Cecil?

Worst of all, a new girl, the snobbish Amber Chesterfield, looks all set to find out.

A Flicker of Light by Someone Rated: Mature [Reviews - 2]
Summary: The San. has employed its first female doctor. She is fey-like, eccentric, and despised by all - especially, for some reason, Reg's friend, Sissy.

Jack, having met her at a conference the previous year, employed her over the heads of many more qualified men, and now, he feels that that was not a diplomatic move. Meanwhile, Reg has the problem of the hostile relations to swerve around, as bad feelings make everyone's life difficult, as well as unravelling the mystery of what makes Flicker so different, and, more importantly, why she stirs up such uncomfortable feelings in Sissy.
