Chapter Text

Hello everyone! I'm honoured to be a part of AO3 and the fictions surrounding this place. There's a lot of amazing stuff here and I look forward to adding to it. Needless to say I wanted to make a little note thing before I got into the story.. if that's okay? I promise you there'll be a story coming very soon after I post this... :P

So I started writing this story on the 04-08-2014 -- I know, quite a while ago -- but I haven't finished it yet. In fact, I'm far, far from it. I'm not going to go and explain why it's not finished since that's not important, but I recently decided I'd share it here to see what you guys think of it. Because who doesn't love reading fan-fic, right?

I must confess, though, this story never started out as fan-fiction. I'd never even heard of The Fosters until last year. But the main reason I started watching it was because of, well, Jonnor. Hence, I got back into writing this again with a lot of inspiration from both the series itself, and the many fan-fics I stumbled across on this site (after not having enough of Jonnor... god, I'm such a sucker lol). So with that being said, I've decided to basically rewrite my story from the ground up from a completely different perspective than what was intended, so that it complies with this particular fandom. And personally, I'm very much looking forward to it.

So the main reason I'm writing this prelude note thing is to give you a little heads-up of what to expect. No spoilers -- no, no spoilers. Just a little heads-up.

Forget everything you know about The Fosters. Forget San Diego, forget Anchor Beach. Forget it all, except Jude and Connor. I mean I probably don't even need to tell you this because it says "Alternate Universe" like everywhere in the tags, but granted it's only Jude and Connor who are still here in the story.. ehhh I thought I'd go ahead with the heads-up anyway. I won't spoil anything else (not that that's a spoiler, no of course not), so I'll just leave it there.

Oh, and there's sorta more than one story in this work. There's still lovable Jonnor, of course, but as a little twist there's a lot more of a side-story as well. ;)

And if you haven't yet figured it out, yes I am new here. So I'll still be getting used to all the ropes and things and how it all works... hopefully I'll get the hang of it all. :P


This is dedicated to today’s youth,
