* AndTheRest: Applied to Copper in this paragraph, for some reason: -->MacReady nodded in understanding. He could recall a few times having help Nauls in the kitchen, often having to help wash the dishes alongside his teammates. Sometimes all of them- Blair, Fuchs, Garry, Bennings, Windows, Childs, Palmer, Norris, Clark and the rest would be helping Nauls with something.

* NuclearOption: It's generally assumed within the canon that the only way to truly ensure the permanent destruction of The Thing (at least on Earth) would be to nuke every location it's been. Understandably, the characters up to this point have not been able to do such a thing. Yuri brings up the possibility of making such a move at one point, but realistically decides against it noticing several problems; you have to have a darn good reason to request a nuclear strike, which would mean telling the authorities about "The Thing". Most likely the authorities will either not believe these stories, or if they do, and word gets out, there may be people wanting to study the Thing, which regardless of reason, be it for potential use as a weapon or something as mundane as scientific curiosity (especially if [[Film/TheThingFromAnotherWorld Dr. Carrington finds out]]), would only help to spread it to the rest of the world.

** Hitchcock also started writing another idea for a sequel, which would have updated the setting to the present day. The concept would have involved an approach in the vein of ''Film/{{Aliens}}'', wherein a Canadian expedition is suddenly attacked by the Thing and loses contact with a nearby supply camp. The base's second-in-command discovers that the Canadian post was located near the site of Outpost 31, leading them to call Mac, Childs, and Kate back to participate in a rescue mission alongside a small platoon of UN soldiers and a scientist named Dr. Carrington who may or may not have been descended from the character of the same name in TheThingFromAnotherWorld. The team would arrive at the outpost and find one survivor amongst the Canadians, who would become a prime suspect of infection, but one of the soldiers turns out to have been assimilated, resulting in mass paranoia whilst Carrington would attempt to go to whatever lengths to study the Thing. The idea was abandoned as Hitchcock was dissapointed with the results.

A prequel story, titled ''[[http://www.outpost31.com/vistar/stories/IrinasMemoir.html Irina's Memoir]]'' has also been published, written as a first-hand account from a supporting character. The plot of both stories picks up where the movies end. After the events of the 2011 film, a traumatized Kate Lloyd makes it to a nearby Russian outpost. After spending the night under care from Vladimir, the camp's doctor and Irina, the cook; Kate's paranoia gets the better of her, and she goes on a short-lived rampage similar to that of Blair in the 1982 film, but is stopped before she can do as much damage and she is subsequently locked up for her own good. A few days later, the Russians spot a nearby fire- which when they investigate turns out to be Outpost 31, where they find only two survivors- Mac and Childs. Both are brought back to the Russian camp where they are initially somewhat paranoid of each other. However, a blood test proves them all to be human, revealing this to be the perfect oppurtunity- they're all human, and they've fought the Thing, meaning they now have a chance to learn from their experiences and strike back, finish the Thing off once and for all.

'''Unfinished Business''' is a fan-made continnuation of JohnCarptenter's 1982 horror film ''[[Film/TheThing1982 The Thing]]'' along and its [[Film/TheThing2011 2011 prequel]] of the same title which was written by John Hitchcock. While it is not the first attempt to pick up where the Carpenter film left off (officially there was both a comic book and video game sequel, unofficially there are countless other fanfics that also did this), but it was a deliberate attempt to break from the syles of such narratives, replacing the bleak atmosphere of the original films with an atmosphere of hope and optimism.

** A few ideas for sequels were considered, an early one being a concept that focused on the rescue team having to fight off the Thing, which would have ended with the last survivor escaping to the Russian camp only to realize he has been infected. **Hitchcock also started writing another idea for a sequel, which would have updated the setting to the present day.
