This Specialist Collections page lists stories archived on LancerLovers and Lancer FanFiction, and some listed on multi-fandom archives or an author’s own site.

AU stories: those set in an ‘alternate universe’ with significant changes to the characters’ history, motivation, environment etc. Some may be set in modern day, or with Johnny and Scott as werewolves, or any other change your heart may fancy!

AR stories: those set in the canonical universe (that is California of 1870) but with a twist – a different family history, for example.

3 thoughts on “AU/AR STORIES

  1. I am trying to locate the story in which Scott is harassed and threatened by one of Lancer’s ranch hands for the simple reason that he is an inexperienced Easterner.


  2. Would you consider adding a – Johnny Madrid, Pre-Lancer – category to your menu? Would also like to ask if you know of any stories that are along the same storyline as Mary B.’s “The Ogre and the Dandy”? Loved her story but it was much too short.


  3. I can’t answer your question about stories similar to Mary’s, Carolyn, but we will look into a new page (it won’t be part of this one) that will cover pre-Lancer stories for both brothers and possibly Murdoch too. There are stories out there for all three that cover the years before the series opens, and it would make a good addition to our special collections pages.

    IF we go ahead, we’d probably be able to start pulling this together, but will almost certainly have to ask the fandom for help in compiling a list of stories to include. So this may take a few weeks to think about and get together.

    Thank you for the suggestion!
