A Guide to The Sentinel on LiveJournal


Detective Jim Ellison, a former Army Ranger, is a modern-day Sentinel, a man with all five senses heightened. Blair Sandburg, a graduate student working on his PhD in anthropology at a local university, has been looking for a Sentinel since reading about their existence. He offers to assist Jim with his senses in return for being able to write about him for his dissertation. The two very different men team up—Blair obtains an observer pass to ride along with Jim on the job and moves in with Jim when the warehouse he was living in blows up—to solve crime using Jim’s sensory advantage, and along the way become friends.

For additional information check out the fandom overview at crack_van here. There is also a Jim/Blair essay at ship_manifesto. Additionally, you can find various fic recs by various rec’ers at crack_van here and at rec50 here.

Thanks! I remember the fandom back in 852 prospect days, but I hadn't found any livejournal stuff. This is a great list!

Wow. I, uh, am almost afraid to reply to this, since it's been almost a YEAR! I can only deduce that LJ didn't send your comment to me, or it got lost in the ton of mails I had when we got back from vacation last year, but either way, I apologize. I just wanted to say thank you! I'm glad you are (or were *g*) finding this Guide helpful. *g*

I'm sure most people still do. I know I try to. LJ isn't a substitute for groups or the greatness of 852, just another place to hang and play. *g*

Link crack_van recs pages on newbieguide?

You might want to consider a link to the TS recs page on crack_van in addition to the fandom overview page.

Otherwise, this page is great! I'm compiling a list for a newbie to TS and this page is the top on my list :).

Except not, since it's not a Live Journal thing. ::blushes::

I do include syndicated feeds on my Guides, however, so if you could point me to one for this archive I'd be happy to included it. *g*
