Welcome to Crimson Glass
Hello! I'm glad you've found your way to my home on the web. This website features fanfiction about General Hospital and has been online since September 19, 2002. There are a few things you should probably know before you venture further to read.
- I love Elizabeth Webber and Jason Morgan. I love them separately, I love them together. So if either of those characters or Liason in general are your kryptonite, you should click the back button and go. Happy travels.
- I hate Franco. I will always hate Franco. You will never see a piece of fiction from me that treats him kindly. He is a lying, violent sexual sociopathic serial killer. I hate Franco. If you like him, you will not change my mind. I hate him.

Starting Monday, May 4, 2020
, I will be posting For the Broken Girl, Book 1: Reflections of You
on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
For a full schedule of upcoming projects, please check out the Production Schedule.
Your Update Link: For the Broken Girl – Chapter Nine
This will be a short and sweet text update — I’ll be back at the end of the week with your June Site & Story update status and I’ve got a big one planned so stay tuned for that.
I was REALLY excited to post Chapter Eight on Friday, and you guys didn’t disappoint! That Jason & Elizabeth scene was unplanned — I hadn’t intended for them to have THAT conversation yet. They weren’t supposed to get the close until closer to Chapter 20. After I wrote that scene, I had to stop and decide if I was going to revisit the entire Liason relationship in Book 1 or rewrite the scene. I decided to do the first one, even though it was harder. The book is so much better for that decision, I think, and it’s one of the reasons Broken Girl didn’t need to be a trilogy.
I’m excited for you guys to see where we go next — this week’s chapters really kick up the action, the drama, and the romance! Enjoy!
Your Update Link: For the Broken Girl – Chapter Six
Finally got a chance to come in and add some text to one of these template update posts. I hope you guys are okay that 1-2 times a week, it’s just simply the link to the newest chapter. I’ve been busy with other things, and honestly, having the update post also be scheduled so far into the future is a relief.
Thanks so much for the response so far! We’re just about finished setting up the story and we’re about to go full force into the main part of the story with Chapter Six and the Sonny/Emily reveal (oops! spoiler!) In editing news, I ended up splitting Chapter 13 into two chapters and adding two extra new scenes and substantially rewriting Chapter 14. I don’t plan to do that with any of the other later chapters, it’s just Chapter 13 didn’t quite make the emotional landing it needed to and there was still something missing. I hope to get the final tweaks on the draft done this week.
Because Broken Girl is taking a bit longer than I wanted and Mad World Book 3 has been giving me a bit of trouble, I’m about 75% sure that I’ll be pushing publication back a month. To be honest, I had really anticipated being completely done with Broken Girl by this point but I’ve been able to do an extra round of edits that make the story so much better. I’ll be adding this stange to Mad World, and with barely three months to go until the original publication, I don’t think I’ll make it. I’d have a month to do the draft, a month for the first round of edits, and a month to finish the edits — I don’t think I can manage a three month turnaround for an entire novel.
I’ll let you know for sure at the end of the week. If I can get Broken Girl done this week and get into Mad World with some real progress by Friday, I can make a more accurate prediction of how long it’s going to take.
Your Update Link: For the Broken Girl – Chapter Three
I scheduled all the chapters through the end of the month as well as a template for the main post so that even if I get tired and forget to add text the night before, you guys still get the link emailed to you. And that’s pretty much what’s going on right now — I’m really tired, and it’s late on Sunday night so enjoy this chapter and I’ll see you Wednesday!
Your Update Link: For the Broken Girl – Chapter 2
Hey! Not much to say here. My posting draft editing hasn’t progressed since Wednesday’s update — I’ve been fighting a nasty headache for most of the week. I spend a lot more time in front of my computer screen than I used to, so I’ve been trying to get away from it after I finish working. My district recently started requiring us to teach Zoom classes at least once a week — and I have to teach six classes tomorrow to accommodate my 160+ students so I’m not sure how much I’ll get done tomorrow.
This doesn’t effect the general public in anyway — I’m edited through Chapter 12, and I’m going to schedule those chapters this weekend. That takes us through the rest of the month. I’m actually working on planning the rest of my lessons right now and writing the plans next week. I only have three weeks of instruction left.
I’ll get back to it this week (probably) and finish up soon. The tweaks I’m doing now don’t take long to do, it’s just hard to concentrate with my headches these days.
Your Update Link: For the Broken Girl, Chapter 1.
Hey! Thanks so much for the great response to the first chapter. It was great to see that you guys picked up on the awkwardness between Jason and Elizabeth — that was the reason I added the Prologue. I wanted a transition scene between the basic lack of contact during 2005 and the scene you’ll read in Chapter 1.
I’m working on the posting draft — that’s my cleaned up and tweaked version of the story. I’m done through Chapter 12, but hit a bit snag today. Just had kind of a blah day and couldn’t stand being at my desk any longer. I’m going to get back into it tomorrow and try to be done by the end of the week.
We found out yesterday at NJ schools are going to be closed for the rest of the year and, even though I was expecting it, I think I was hoping we might be back anyway. I just wish I’d known March 16 was the last day with my kids. I don’t have a job with the district next year yet, so I might not even get to see them again. So just trying to wrap my mind around it.
Being able to look forward to you guys reading this after all this time is keeping my spirits up. Thanks to everyone who read the prologue and left a review!
After months of planning, writing, rewriting, and editing — For the Broken Girl, Book 1 is finally here! Today, I am posting the Prologue — but I won’t be linking that first chapter directly. I’d prefer if you went to the story page and read the background & setup.
Thanks to everyone for all your patience as I delayed Fool Me Twice to write Broken Girl, and THEN delayed Broken Girl three months. I feel like it was worth the wait, and I’m glad I took the extra time.
I’ll be posting new chapters on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. All the chapters for this week have already been scheduled, and I’ll be working on scheduling the rest of the chapters this week so that even if I got really busy, the story would get updated. Hopefully, I’ll remember to put up the main update post but if I forget, never fear — updates go live at 7 AM the day they’re scheduled so bookmark the story page and come on back on the day.
I hope you enjoy it!
