Well, I'm a Misfit fan.
Logic dictates that it would be them who I would write about.
That's not to say that Jem and the Holograms don't make an appearance...they do. Only the majority of my writing is done from a Misfit's point of view.
There is a large chronological gap between the first story and the others - this is because my stories fit around the TV series. Fresh Blood is set before Truly Outrageous and tells how the Misfits met and got together (in my eyes), whilst the others are set after A Father Should Be and plot how things continued after the series ended...they are written to form a sequence of their own, leading in from one another in the order they're set out in below...as yet the list is not complete and there are stories missing at stages in the sequence - they're under construction and will be there soon...
First of all, being British has not made writing about American characters any easier ^_^ so I'd like to apologise now if any of the American characters use Briticisms when they speak. It;s habit and I haven't picked up on it (also please let me know if I do it!). Jetta's language is as close to the show as I can get it without her sounding ridiculously false (some of Jetta's show language, like 'whizzo' is not a bit British, and I have given her some new, genuine Briticisms into her vocabulary.) Being a Jetta fan, I've done quite a bit of creative thought on her background and personality...I hope at least it provides a new slant on the Misfit which gets such a lot of bad words said about her :)

MY JEM FANFICTION
I'd like to make the point that, at two points in the first story there are snippets of two scenes borrowed in part from Truly Outrageous/The Beginning This is simply to bring the story into the context of the series itself (since my story leads into The Beginning) and those scenes are copyrighted in their entirety to Christy Marx and to Hasbro Inc. England's Rose and Roxy's Story contain flashbacks to before and/or during the series duration. For this reason there are a couple of tiny dialogues and one scene which are borrowed from Talent Search #1 for continuity's sake in part two of England's Rose. These are copyrighted to Sunbow and Christy Marx and not to me - I have merely borrowed them and hope noone will be offended at my using them! All characters that appear in the Jem episodes or stories are also copyrighted to Hasbro Industries Inc. 1986-8.
Any ideas and characters I have put into the story that are my own are copyright to me (E.A Woolley) as of August 2001.
I have interpreted the characters as I see them from the sixty five television episodes. I have read no other fanfic (deliberately so that my own would not be influenced) so any ideas that are duplicated in other's work is coincidental. I have also created a few characters here and there to fill in gaps that I see in my own mind. They are my own interpretations and not intended as a hard and fast rule to the characters themselves since I have had no access to a copy of the Jem Bible in the course of writing.
THESE STORIES ARE MY COPYRIGHT AND ARE NOT TO BE REPRODUCED ANYWHERE WITHOUT PERMISSION!
A word of warning to take note of. I tend to write stories in full novel format, that is that they are long and involve chapters :)
In the progress of writing, a bunch of new
characters come to light. Visit here to
find out more about them! :)

Okay, now that bit is out of the way, here are the stories...more to come in the near future.
-Mary Phillips is a young, innocent girl from Los Angeles, nursing a broken heart. Roxanne Pelligrini, a runaway from Philadelphia is simply looking for a place to crash in California, and Phyllis Gabor wants a recording contract, no matter what it takes to get it. Brought together by Eric Raymond, a young and ambitious manager in control of Starlight Music, the girls soon turn out to be more than he bargained for.
Meanwhile, in London, a local girl is beginning to set her sights higher...on America.
A Misfit Should
-The Misfits have had another blow up, and this time it's Jetta who's walked out, determined that she won't be talked back into rejoining the group. But then she discovers her brother Jeremy is in America, in trouble...and determined to wind his younger sister up in his escape plans. When one of the Starlight girls disappears Jetta knows only too well who's behind it, but it's only when Jeremy involves Roxy in his schemes that the sax player realises once and for all where her loyalties truly lie...and what a Misfit really should be.
Who Is She,
The Misfits are taking a break between albums and doing their own thing for a change. Whilst Roxy and Jetta get dragged off to the East Coast by Pizzazz to sabotage the Stingers concert, and make the aquaintance of a young artistic hopeful named Chimera, Stormer takes the opportunity to renew her musical acquaintance with Kimber Benton, and spends time at Starlight Mansion whilst the two girls work on a new record. But, in spending time with her band's foes she stumbles upon an amazing secret. Is Jerrica Benton really the mysterious Jem? And what is Chimera hiding from her new acquaintances?
Links between Pizzazz and her father have always been emotionally non-existant, and since the sale of Misfit Music they've been even more strained. It's only logical therefore that when a phonecall comes through from her father's office in Washington DC, Pizzazz is less than enthusiastic to take the call. However, when she discovers that Harvey has suffered a heart attack she is in shock. Her father is all she has left in the world and suddenly she is afraid...
Roxy has never been one to talk much about where she came from. A high school dropout from Philadelphia, she is both deeply ashamed and afraid of the past that led her to California. When the Misfits' east coast tour takes them to a Music festival in the city, Roxy is not keen, but she knows she has no choice but to go along with what Pizzazz and the others decide.
But there is more than she bargained for in her hometown. Since her last visit, word has got out about what a big star their former resident has become, and a shadow from her past is determined to make the most of it...any way he can.
From her humble beginnings, Jetta has made it as one of the most successful music stars of the decade. Resolved to keep her past in her past and look to the future, she revels in her new identity, adopting the role of a Misfit with enthusiasm.
A couple of years on, and the Misfits are back in England, determined to break the international market down and sell more of their new album than Jem and the Holograms, who have just completed a wildly successful European tour. After a successful appearance on Top of the Pops, the band find themselves called to guest on a popular talk show, but upon arriving on set, the group discovers that the other guest band is Jetta's old group, the Tinkerbillys, who are rising stars in the English charts. Jetta has mixed feelings about renewing her acquaintances, particularly after a run-in with the band's jealous and vindictive lead singer Allie. Within hours Jetta's saxophone goes missing...but things soon take a more sinister turn than simple inter-band rivalry when she is attacked in a night club and there is nearly a nasty accident at the group's photo shoot. Then, the day before the big Wembley concert, Jetta discovers that the brakes are out on her car...
Saffron is a successful young model from San Diego who finds herself embroiled in the Misfits and the Holograms' rivalry on set of a Rock Fashion Television Spectacular. An old school rival of Pizzazz's, she soon finds that she has a new foe developing in Kimber Benton, when a few comments towards Shawn Harrison are misinterpreted. Pizzazz is quick to take advantage
of Kimber's jealousy, and soon there is all out war on the set. Meanwhile, the dancers have arrived, among them the dazzling and dangerous Eboni, who appears to have more up her sleeve than she's letting on. Though on first appearance Eboni's motives seem on the level, things change dramatically when she realises that Shawn is on set...and involved with one of the Holograms. Can Kimber's relationship with Shawn survive?
It's a month since Clash's elaborate scheming and the truce
between the Holograms and the Misfits is still holding good.
When Aja encounters a stranger in a club the Holograms are playing,
she's more than a little surprised to discover that this newcomer
is claiming to be Roxy's long lost elder brother. Though unsure
at first, Roxy begins to drop her defenses when she discovers Justin
really does understand her struggles with learning to read, and together
they begin to explore the truth of what happened to Roxy's long dead
But then a spanner is thrown into the works. Attracted to Jetta from his first meeting with her, Justin doesn't know which side to take, and though Jetta is scornful of his attention, when Roxy gives him an ultimatum, she begins to realise that she is more involved in things than she'd first realised.
But can the designing woman really be falling in love?
Kimber's been late to rehearsals just once too often and Jerrica, for whom work is becoming all too much, has had enough. Determined that the Hologram/Misfit truce is all an elaborate hoax on the part of the Misfits, she forbids her sister to spend time with Stormer.
Kimber, however, has ideas of her own and sets out to prove once and for all that she can take care of herself. Caught in the growing rift between the Benton sisters, Aja, Shana and Raya find their own loyalties stretched to breaking point and to make matters worse Pizzazz seems set to take full advantage of the disunity in the other camp.
Is this really the end of the line for Jem and the Holograms?
