2 Works in George McIntyre
Dave Lister, 22 and drunk ends up stealing a Starbug from a JMC ship hold in Liverpool and ends up not at the nearest Denny's but in the psychedelic world of Smeg. Based loosely on that wonderful 1939 film the Wizard of Oz read about Lister's adventure along a yellow brick road. Will the Wizard of Smeg help him fix the stolen Starbug?
Written to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Red Dwarf! xD Dedicated to everyone that made Red Dwarf what it is today, the writers, producers, cast crew and all of the fans! But in particular the ones I have met through Tumblr and fan fictioning! Hope you enjoy it or get inspired to write something better than this! Thank you all! *rimmer salute* I do not own the series or the film but you probably know that already. :3
This is a long explanation, so be prepared. Okay, this story is set in an alternate universe where Rimmer never left to become Ace (hence, the events of 'Stoke Me A Clipper' never occurred, and most of 'Blue', although Lister still has a kissing dream, because I said so). Kochanski still joined the Starbug team (though that's mostly irrelevant), and the gang still discovered Red Dwarf in Lister's laundry basket (except in the Rimmer-there version, he comments 'I'm surprised the stench didn't kill them!'). But when Kryten persuades the nanos to rebuild Red Dwarf, a conflict arises... Rimmer is a hologram, but George McIntyre is still on board Red Dwarf, and he's not prepared to give up his hologrammatic position for anyone... Oh, and I've made my standard AU alteration of Holly to female. Hey, if I want Holly to be female, she's female, dammit! Also, because it's holo-Rimmer and not real-Rimmer, there is no jail sentence, so everyone's in their usual quarters.
