Season 8 Redo
- Authored by tanith75
- Recommended by hillraiser2011
- Pairings: Jackie/Hyde, Eric/Donna, Fez/Laurie, Kelso/Brooke, Bob/Joanna
- Synopsis: A complete refurbishing of Season 8. It starts off near the end of Season 7 with a happier, more conclusive season finale for Jackie/Hyde They tie the knot. The story follows them, the rest of the gang, the Formans, and others in Point Place, as in this "season" Eric and Kelso don't leave Point Place, Laurie returns, Eric gets a dream job, Jackie and Hyde learn what it's like to raise a family, and plenty of classic "That 70's" hijinks ensue in the season(s) that perhaps should've been.
- Comments: Despite the notion that typing a fanfic out like a script is usually a no-no, Tanith is very descriptive with new, different scenes and establishing connections between well-known and one-shot characters that pleasantly surprise me and make for some real funny moments in the overall plot. While many of the characters (Fez, Bob, Kelso, Kitty, etc.) seem like somewhat Flanderized versions of their TV personalities, it's justified in the sense that the show's gone this far along that we couldn't come to know them as anything else.
- On the flip side, each character/couple gets development many fans felt they should've gotten in the series: We see what changes and stays the same with Jackie and Hyde as a married couple, how Fez and Laurie's "marriage" would work out if her character had stuck around, and the true culmination of Eric and Donna's long, winding, up-and-down relationship.
- Ironically enough, it takes Kelso the longest out of the main group to fully develop, given he was more or less the focal point of Character Development throughout Season 7 and the start of Season 8 in the show.
- Has a page up under construction and in need of some love.
