Story Idea


I've had this story idea brewing for some time. I know, *head-desk*. I really need my head read. Anyway, I thought I'd gauge some interest.

Remember the Greatest American Hero? I loved that show. It was so funny and so original in its concept. Anyhoo, I had this idea of doing a Greatest American Hero reprise, or maybe a next generation fic where Bill Maxwell has a daughter who has become an FBI agent and she's trying to build a career for herself, all while dealing with the fact that her father, who she saw only one or twice in her life, had this appalling reputation (people thought he was nuts). So of course, her fellow agents are going to think she's cut from the same cloth except for the fact that she never really knew him.

Along comes Hinkley junior (I haven't got a name for him yet), who is the son of Ralph Hinkley and Pam Davidson. He would be in his early twenties, whereas our Ms Maxwell would be slightly older. They meet, get caught up in some way (I haven't decided that yet) and eventually wind up in the desert, meeting the aliens who first gave Ralph the uniform. And just like his father, junior loses the instruction book. Our FBI agent is the one chosen to guide him (boss him around), on the basis of the fact that her father was also chosen for the role.

Much annoyance, and hilarity where junior (both juniors) are trying to work out how to use the suit, which still looks like jammies (the aliens haven't bothered to update it) and both feel completely ridiculous, yadda yadda. Let's face it, a skinny guy in a super suit doesn't look anything like Superman. Oh, and yes, the two end up falling for each other. (I've gotta have my smut. I like to live vicariously *grin*)

So what do you think so far? If you like the concept, would you read it? There might be cameos from Ralph and Pam (and maybe Bill).

I've never read any Greatest American Hero fanfics so I wouldn't know if this concept has already been tried. I know there was some sort of sequel (Greatest American Heroine) but I don't think it was ever picked up.

I don't remember the story. I do remember the show being on but not one thing about it. Guess I'm getting old.

It was done by the same guy that did the A-Team. Ralph was a school teacher and they met the aliens who told them they had a job helping people. They go out solving crimes. Ralph lost the instruction book, so he oculd never fly very well. It's just an idea I've had brewing.
