Suppose you are like me. Sometimes you think of your ship or characters from your favorite show in a different situation or even an alternative universe.  To go into that other world or even expand into the world, I end up going to FanFiction or, as most people say, FanFic.  And before you say or think anything wrong about FanFiction, remember that 50 Shades of Gray was originally fan fiction to Twilight


For most fandoms of your favorite movie, tv-show, book, comic, etc., a fanfic writer puts a different spin on these characters.  Or like I like to say, other like and breath that you might have never thought of them being in.  And when a show is canceled or even ends, this helps relive why you love the characters and makes it feel like you are still getting a new episode every week.  These writers put a lot of work into their stories for FREE!  I can not imagine doing all of the work and not getting a light shined on them for doing something extraordinary for the fandom.


That is why this part of the Around The Coffee Table section will be talking about all of the beautiful fanfics there are to read and shine a spotlight on all of those excellent writers.


This first story is written by the fantastic writer CaliWonders. You can follow her on Twitter and see all her works on AO3. The story that I am recommending is Chasing Stars. This fanfic is part of the Lucifer fandom. As some of you may know, Lucifer came to an end last year. Those of us who came to the fandom late might not feel like we had a lot of time to enjoy it. Reading these stories do help. 


Now Chasing Star is an alternate universe where Chloe and Lucifer were together for a year.  But in typical Lucifer style, he ended the relationship with no explanation when it got too real for him.  He has been seeing Chloe’s acting career take off.  Every day, he also wants her back in his life, back in his arms, and even back in his bed.  But the rumor that is going around is that she is dating a world-renowned DJ, and the relationship is getting very serious.  So if Lucifer does even try and get Chloe back, will she even want that?


I was hooked on this story in the very first chapter.  The characters are very well written and still have some of the qualities from the show, which helped me get into the story quickly.  When I read the following snippet, I knew this was a story I would wait to read the next chapter every week.

Suki takes hold of his wrist. “Oh my god, you’re bleeding!”

She sounds panicked, and he looks at his hand. He is bleeding.

“I’ll go grab the first aid kit.” He faintly hears the barmaid say.

Suki lets go of his arm. His eyes are fixed on his hand. He’s bleeding. He never bleeds. Never... unless—

It’s impossible. It can’t be. Not tonight. Not here.

He turns around and strides toward the dancefloor while scanning the room. He probably looks like a bloody lunatic with his eyes searching avidly every inch of his club, but he doesn’t care.

Suddenly he stops dead in his tracks, and his breath catches in his throat.

There, in a corner booth, he sees her. She’s sporting the sweetest smile he’s ever seen, and her fingers are idly tracing the stem of her wine glass.

The way it was written, I could imagine seeing this on my TV screen… it also showed how well she understood the characters she was writing.


Right now, there are three chapters up to this story. It does not say how many chapters this story will have, but it is updated every Monday. What is nice about that is you can take in the story slowly and enjoy it as your would a real TV show.
