This series started as a fluke way back in November 1997 as a challenge given to have Jim save Blair from someone or something with Blair as a child and Jim as the adult we know him as now. With a bit of time traveling and a touch of AU fantasy, I did just that -- then found I wasn't allowed to stop with just one story. Or even two or three. And thus the series was born.
These stories were begun before Cassie or Megan were introduced. Because I want to keep things as simple as possible and true to the characters as I see them, I have elected not to include either one in these stories. I do like Megan very much -- as you will notice in a lot of my more recent stories -- and Cassie at some point had some potential, but I didn't want to have to figure out what to do with them for these stories. So, because of the exclusion of these two characters, even by mention, this series is definitely AU, in addition to the central mystical nature of the stories themselves. Episode-wise, I would say this series begins sometime after Warriors and builds from there.

In Time and Destiny -- In the conclusion of the core series, Jim and Blair enter into the mystical realm to battle the dark shaman; Simon stands guard in the real world watching and waiting for the conflict to end; and in the final battle between good and evil, the price for good winning may be too high.
