Honestly, I hope there will be. As much as I'm pained to address this, Adventures in Odyssy can't continue forever. :boohoo:
I have several ideas for a spin-off, actually I should rephrase that. I have one brilliant idea.

A grown up Jared DeWhite steps out from Government Protection and settles down in a the suburbs of Brooklyn New York, at an attempt to rebuild a relationship with his younger brother and his wife. (Trent and Mandy) :inlove: As he begins to create a career for himself, he runs into a few familiar faces and encounters a woman who's passion for freedom matches his own. It isn't long when he realises the immense difference between his life and Trent's and that his own choices impact others as well as him.

The spin-off would follow Jared, the married DeWhites and their children, Sarah and Cal Jordan, Alessandra Richards, and the kindly old woman with an unexpected secret. Yes, I need people's opinions on this.

Aww thank you. It might be a while before I begin writing this...suggestions are needed, and I don't have a name.

You're my hero :mad:

Why Brooklyn, though? It's not a bad choice on its own; I'm just curious as to that specific choice. Personally, I always thought of Trent and Mandy living in Houston, Texas, because that's where the Johnson Space Center is and I've always headcanoned that Trent becomes an aerospace engineer. (I just want my son to achieve his dreams okay)

You're sweet but I have to claim Trent as mine. :noway:
I think they would rather live in Houston, knowing Trent's interests. I only chose Brooklyn because it represents the intrigue and mystery of Jared's past, and fits my original character well, dumb reasons I admit. I believe Houston is where Jack and Lucy disappeared to anyways.
In the spin-ocf off, Lucy could be a journalist and it'd be interesting if they had a daughter who was more rebellious, in contrast to Lucy's gentle personality.
Thoughts?

listen...listen...you, Smaug, and I can become like...an unholy triumvirate of parents/aunts to this precious sunshine child we can make this work

(augh, you weren't here when Smaug was! she's my toO trandy-shipping bestie and we've created glorious headcanons together. come and be assimilated)

In all seriousness, I feel like NYC could be a good setting—given Mandy's interests in acting and writing, there's the possibility of her working on Broadway in some capacity. Of course, if you need a big city, there's also the option of Orlando, Florida; the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral is around half an hour away. What kind of jobs would Trent and Jared have? What's the draw to Brooklyn, exactly?

Lucy and Jack having a rebellious daughter would be interesting; you'd have to make it work, though, to keep the situation from coming off as too reminiscent to Jules. It would be cool to see her having a stronger relationship with Jack, who was a bit of a mischief-maker himself and who would therefore understand where his daughter is coming from. He pulls double-duty—counseling his daughter to keep her from going too far and counseling his wife to keep her from going gray at age 40. :P

TigerShadow, I imagine Trent's occupation would definitely have something to do with with mechanical engineering, perhaps designing spacecraft. It'd be 9-5 job though. Jared, on the on the other hand might go unsuccessfuly with a desk job or two before eventually working as a P.E teacher. I like the end of having a radio drama in a large, populous city though focusing on only a few characters and their struggles. Strangely enough, Jared could get into writing dystopian novels with Brooklyn as inspiration. :lol:

I understand what you're saying about their daughter. People do sometimes think of writing stereotypicall rebellious teens, yet there is always a reason for sinfulness. Even if it's pride or selfishness. Jules Kendall was the expected cynical and depressed daughter of a wealthy man who wrestled with his commitments. The daughter of the Davis' might act out because she finds it hard to live up to her mother's potentiall and feels smothered. This would provide conflict for the couple who were considering adoption. Their second child, a boy, follows after his sister's bad habits and they wonder if they're failing at parenting. At the same time, the daughter enjoys spending time with Jack.
I think it'd be neat if Mandie was a script writer. What do you think?
