A Gift. An Heirloom. A
Something left behind for those who come after.
Such is the nature of a legacy.
JAG, created in 1995 by Donald P. Bellisario and Bellisarius Productions,
lasted for ten years, finally ending in a manner that attempted to please as
many fans as possible - both shipper and non shipper.
Inspired by the characters and story lines in the show, many devoted fans
have written fan fiction. There are literally thousands of stories out
there. Some are tucked away in private web sites, some hide in the dusty
corners of huge archives, and still others exist only in defunct mailing lists or personal collections.
The stories, gifts from the hearts and minds of the fans, float through the
vast expanse of the World Wide Web like jet contrails, gradually fading as
time goes on until many of them disappear forever, lost to time
and inattention. There are those, however, who fight to keep the memories
alive, to save them for the fans who might come looking for them again.
These are the archivists.
It is unlikely that any archivist will ever be able to collect every story
in one place, and we at Legacies know better than to try.
Instead, our goal at Legacies is to enlist the fans' help in identifying and
collecting the very best JAG fan fiction. It's a challenging
and sometimes impossible task, as more and more authors leave JAG fandom in pursuit of other interests. We like
challenges though, and we hope that you do, too. With your help, and a
little time and effort, we can create a monument to the show we enjoyed for
ten wonderful years.
Note: Most stories added to the archive prior to January
1, 2010 were beta read by Legacies staff. All were voted upon by the fans. Stories added after
January 1, 2010 were nominated (by somebody other than the author) but not
beta-read nor voted upon. In addition, most stories added after January 1, 2010
have been added in single page format rather than being broken into multiple
parts. These stories may take longer to load for those readers using dial-up
connections. Story lengths are always notated in the index pages and should
be taken into account when considering possible load times.
