Chuckjd's Words

a convenient dumping ground for my writing

Welcome to this!

Welcome to the newest home for my scribblings.  Hopefully you enjoy what you see and leave a comment while you’re at it!

BW Manics

Currently, the biggest thing going on around here is what I generally refer to as my “Epic.”  It’s a Manic Street Preachers fic I’ve been drivelling on about for almost 2 years.  I’ve been researching and fact-checking my heart out, trying to make it as accurate as possible with the reference materials available (Everything by Simon Price, MSPpedia, NME’s Uncut Collection).  With the basic timeline of reality,  I’ve written vignettes of what the scenes were probably like, with the addition of Nicky/Richey (which probably happened, anyway).

Of course, this would be too simple.  So there are alternate universes that curve around this one, and each other in some cases, to create a oddly woven tapestry of Manics history with a nagging sense of “what if?” throughout.

Using tags or categories, navigation should be quite simple (though at first may seem very complicated, which, I should be notified immediately if it doesn’t become easy and I’m just crazy).


  • EPIC: This tag is for all things relating to this fic.  Simply everything.
  • EPIC: ORIGINAL: When the story is the original story I planned and wrote, the one with Nicky and Richey as cannon, this tab will be the one attached.
  • EPIC: JAMES’ JEALOUSY: This tag denotes James/Richey as a sort of AU to the main, original timeline.  Set to be an extension of the original with James jealous of the Nicky/Richey.  Includes extensions to scenes and new events that depends heavily on the events in the original.
  • EPIC: JAMES STANDALONE: These are the James/Richey fics that exists on the general timeline if Nicky/Richey never happened, as if the original fic happened as is minus the slash leaving only the confirmed history.
  • EPIC: ALTEND: What if Richey took the others’ offer to step back from the band when he was in the Priory?  Would things be that different?

These may change a million times or never, it’s hard to tell.  This is all very new and I’ll have to test-drive this organization fully to know for sure.

A special note: this monstrosity will not be the only thing here (hopefully).  I have a few things that need to be typed up and beta’d that are in other fandoms entirely.  But that’s for another time entirely.
