Volturi’s Bane – a Bionic Woman/Twilight Crossover Story

Here is one of my ‘works in progress’. Volturi’s Bane is a Bionic Woman and Twilight Crossover Story. On the Twilight side it takes place shortly after the end of the third book for a couple of reasons. First, I haven’t yet read the fourth book. Second, I wanted to explore a different path for the Bella/Edward relationship starting before they get married.

On the Bionic Woman side, this story is based on the recent 2007 version of the TV show rather than the classic show of the 1970s. I found some of the computer augmentations they gave Jaime in the more recent series interesting and wanted to explore them a little more.

With the Bionic Woman’s speed, strength, enhanced vision, and hearing, she seems to be on same playing field as the vampires and werewolves of the Twilight books, so I thought she would be a good match and mixing her in might lead to an interesting story.

of course, I’m not going to just throw Jaime Sommers into the story with no rhyme or reason. Plus I thought it would be more interesting if klutzy Bella has a bad accident and has to be ‘upgraded’ to save her life. Now, with her having speed and strength of a vampire or a wolf, it changes the whole dynamics of the basic story, which is something I like to explore in most of my stories.

And to add another layer to the story, I have included Jaime’s little sister Becca in the mix. Now in the Bionic Woman TV show, they never gave Becca much interesting to do, so I have decided to change that. In my story she is this budding MAD SCIENTIST. Okay, she’s not out to conquer the world, but she is building this crazy bad-ass robot. Also, as in the original unaired pilot, Becca is deaf in this story.

This story is told in a first person style from Bella’s perspective, like in the books. However, while she isn’t in every scene, probably the key character is Alice. I find the concept of someone being able to see into the future an interesting concept to explore. At least in this story, she uses her ability to orchestra things and force a future she wants, which is something I never saw happen much in the original books.

If this sounds interesting, the first four chapters are available here.

And if you would like to discuss any aspects of this story, leave a comment here.
