''Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.''


''[[http://freepdfhosting.com/2c25b2564d.pdf Slide Effects]]'', by ireactions, based on a plot by series co-creator Tracy Tormé
-->Recommended by kitkatness

'''Synopsis:''' Quinn Mallory wakes up to find himself home -- in fact, it's like he never left and time has been rewound to the Pilot. It's 1995: Wade is working at Doppler Computers, Professor Arturo is teaching, Rembrandt is a musician and only Quinn remembers sliding. Haunted by five years of traumatic memories, Quinn begins to wonder if he's losing his mind or if something else has gone terribly wrong...

'''Comments:''' ''Sliders'' is a show that lost 75% of the cast, most of them suffering horrible deaths. It is a depressing series in the end, and "Slide Effects" seeks to turn that around. In an interview on [[http://earthprime.com/tracy-torme/tracy-torme-2009.html Earthprime.com]], Tormé talked about the {{AuthorsSavingThrow}} he would use to repair his series. This fanfic is Tormé's idea expanded into a 46 page script. There are lots of post-"Seer" stories, but this one's different: it's not about finishing the incomplete arcs of Seasons 3 - 5 -- they're set aside in favor of returning to the Season 1/2 characters on page one and contrasting the Season 1/2 style with memories of Seasons 3 - 5. The story pulls off the neat trick of undoing the latter years while still leaving emotional fallout.

-->Recommended by kitkatness

'''Synopsis:''' Twenty years after the first slide, Quinn, Wade, Rembrandt and Arturo must step back into the vortex and begin their adventures once again.

'''Comments:'''This screenplay, by the author of "Slide Effects," seems to be another effort at restarting Sliders after "The Seer." However, it's done in the sense of a 2015 in-continuity movie revival. A 4-page prequel and one 95-page script have been released with apparently two more scripts and a novella to come. The 4-page prequel takes place right after "The Seer" and shows Rembrandt coming out of the vortex and inexplicably reunited with Quinn, Wade, and Arturo. The prequel script ends before any explanation is given for how Quinn, Wade and Arturo have somehow returned from being lost, dead and dead. The first installment, "Reunion," is a 95-page script set in 2015 and continues to withhold any explanation. "Reunion" shows that Wade, Rembrandt and Arturo have been home since 2001 and resumed normal lives. However, something seems to be going wrong with reality and Quinn reappears after a 14-year absence, reuniting with his friends and declaring that their only hope of saving reality is to step back into the vortex once again.

"Reunion" has a very strange approach to continuity, both referring to Seasons 3 - 5 and yet contradicting them. Wade's death is referred to despite Wade being alive; the Kromagg invasion is mentioned despite home clearly being untouched by Kromaggs; despite the prominence of sliding in the later seasons, Arturo states that only four sliders (the originals) are left as though he knows it for a fact. The script seems to delight in declaring that many unrevealed events between 2000 - 2001 brought about this back-to-basics situation. We'll have to see how Parts 2 - 3 turn out.

* Recommended by Transformer214
* Synopsis: A full Season Six and Season 7. This group of stories reunite Rembrandt with the Professor after the latter was left behind in "Post Traumatic Slide" along with that alternate Earth's Quinn and Wade. Together they pick up Maggie, Mallory and Diana and seek to separate Mallory again while continuing on to new adventures. The series stays true to the original characterizations while introducing new dynamics with the new Wade and Quinn. Thought out and self consistent this series is a great read for fans of the first two seasons of the show.
