Synopsis

Beatrice "Bea" Whaley seems to have it all; the seventeen year old high school senior is beautiful, wealthy and the star performer of the drama club. And with her uncle’s connections to Broadway theater, the future looks bright ahead of her. Little does she know that her future might actually be brighter behind her... More

Bea begins having vivid dreams about a brave and handsome soldier named Alan Warren--a member of an elite group known as Knowlton’s Rangers that served during the Revolutionary War. Prone to keeping her head in the clouds, Bea welcomes her nightly adventures in 1776; filled with danger and romance they give her much to muse about the next day. But it is not long before Beatrice questions whether her dreams are simply dreams or something more. Each night they pick up exactly where the last one ended. And the senses--the smell of musket shots and cannons, the screams of soldiers in agony, and that kiss--are all far more real than any dream she can remember. Hide

More Than Words” by Caitlin Hoffman, who wrote a fan fiction that brought Benjamin Tallmadge to a modern day college dorm room. Here’s an excerpt:

He had never seen a room furnished such as this before. It was as if someone had tried to fit all the necessities of a house–save the kitchen–in a space roughly the size of a bedchamber. And not even a large bedchamber.

“Where the blazes am I?” he whispered. “What happened to me?” That question birthed a far more disturbing query: Am I still who I think I am? He knew his name to be Benjamin Tallmadge, but then he also knew his surroundings to be an army encampment in the aftermath of a battle that had cost them many good men, including Colonel Knowlton. Since that part appeared to be wrong, perhaps he had his name wrong as well.

In glancing around the room, he noted a graceless, blocky chest of drawers shoved in the corner, a mirror hanging on the wall above. He pushed off the oddly firm surface of the bed and made a beeline for the corner, knocking something over in his mad dash.

“Hey, you okay?” the voice called through the door. “Ben?”

He was too preoccupied with his reflection to answer. The brown eyes staring back at him were definitely his own, as were the long nose, high forehead, and dark hair that just brushed his shoulders. But he didn’t recall being such an unshaven mess, and where the blazes was his shirt?

Time Warp: Past to Present” by Amanda Geil, who brought Alan back with Bea back to the modern day with the help of The Doctor (from BBC’s Doctor Who) and watercolor paints:
