Fandom: THE SECRET ADVENTURES OF JULES VERNE

Why this must be read: In the beginning, there was The Suit.
The Suit was never part of the show, you must understand. It was what Sci-Fi Channel made Chris Demetral wear for the commercial blurbs. Think of the white suit that most actors playing an old Mark Twain would wear, brighten that up quite a bit due to the lighting styles used for those blurbs, and you have a pretty good idea what we're talking about.
The fans did not like The Suit.
Chris himself did not like The Suit.
Which led to Susan commenting in a chat one night that she would write a story in which The Suit would be destroyed in some way.
She wound up writing four. There were supposed to be five, one from each of the main characters' POV, but to the best of my knowledge she still hasn't written Jules' take on the matter.
Wait a minute, I hear you ask, five
characters? I though there were only four actors in the main cast?
True. The Fifth Suit
is told from the viewpoint of the Aurora.
Yes. The airship.( At least give the ship a chance to convince you? )
The story itself can be read here
or, if you have QuickTime, there is an audio version read by Adela Torres here
