Fandom: THE SECRET ADVENTURES OF JULES VERNE
Pairing: Rebecca/Jules

Why this must be read:

Because in the series it's painfully obvious that Jules has a bit of a crush on Rebecca. This pairing doesn't get as much fic as the others do, but this is a nice if bittersweet show of what could have happened while nobody knew.

Pairing: a fair amount of Phileas/Rebecca angst

Why this must be read:

In the episode "The Victorian Candidate", Phileas is brainwashed by the League of Darkness and sent off to kill Queen Victoria. Rebecca stops him at the last moment, talking him back to himself - and then the episode ends with a view of the Aurora flying away.

Not good enough, said the fans. We want to know what happened afterwards, see Phileas' recovery, ect. There were quite a few post-ep fics written, but this one is my favorite of the bunch.

Fandom: THE SECRET ADVENTURES OF JULES VERNE
Pairing: Phileas/Rebecca
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: http://blue-fenix.fanspace.com/
Why this must be read:

Well written, incorporating a few secondary characters and a certain reoccurring piece of technology from the series, and on occasion referring to some of the grimmer aspects of being an agent of the Service. This reads rather like an episode that was never filmed.

The author originally planned to write a sequel, so there are a few questions raised that are not fully explained. However, the story does stand on its own.

Nota Bene (written in seven parts, links to the next provided at the bottom of each)

Hey, [livejournal.com profile] nanashi_sama here. I'll be your Crack Van driver for the fandom The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne (overview to be posted by next week at the latest, sorry).

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.
