EGB Fan is a longtime member of the Ectozone forum and one of my first collaborators on stories such as For Worse Or For Better and Dreams Reborn, as well as being Coda and Terchi's biggest cheerleader.

More importantly, she's the one who basically singlehandedly plotted out the lives of the Ectozone version of the Extreme Ghostbusters all the way from 1998 to the present and even into the future. And that's what today's post is about.

Not long ago, she wrote me asking if I'd approve of her rewriting the future of one of the EGB kids, Conchita Rivera, the older daughter of Eduardo and Kylie. She admitted looking back at the old stories and felt bad about some of the twists and turns she put young Miss Rivera through; I agreed, remembering saying at the time "Yikes, this is a lot of turmoil for one of the nicest characters in the cast" but she was, after all, EGB Fan's character.

So when she said she wanted to remake some of that stuff, I certainly didn't say no. A combination of it being her characters, and it being stuff that still "hasn't happened yet" as far as 8932 continuity is concerned, meant that I was all for it, especially as she had some other non-romance ideas for making Conchita a better character.

And then one last thing, she asked, since she didn't feel right about putting these OC-heavy stories on fan fic sites like FFN and AO3, would I mind hosting them on the Ectozone? Hell no!

Read and enjoy. You'll also see some familiar (for this site) characters show up in Part Two.

September 2024--Timeline Year Forty-Two
A professional opportunity leads to a romantic proposition for Conchita Rivera. Not for the first time, she risks an emotional investment, little knowing of the surprise her suitor has in store.

October 2024--Timeline Year Forty-Two
Conchita spends some time with Jessica Venkman and the current women of Ghostbusters as she sorts out her feelings. A Halloween party, thrown by her sister's beloved, is drawing closer, and with it--opportunity, should she choose to take it.

Yeah, that's cool and all, but what's coming up this year?

I'm currently starting the follow-up to The Werewolf of Notre-Dame: it'll be something interesting happening to the Spengler Twins and Eric Stantz while Marie and TJ were in France.

Also, I'll inevitably do a follow-up to Thirty-Five Years Later. Now that Deek's seen what happened in Timeline 681 (and I've seen Ghostbusters: Afterlife) she updates Professor Ulforce...and maybe he's got an update or two for her too. (Probably after it comes out on home video and I watch it again.)

I hope you'll stick around and give it a look.

Have a safe and happy Thirty Second Year of the Age of Aquarius.
