They all sound good, but it looks like the first one is the most developed. Out of all of them, I think I like the first two better. Good luck!Wife to DH, the very handsome Casey who always makes me laugh.

I like them all, really. I think you should work on each one a little bit individually, then focus one the one you had more ideas for, putting the others aside until you can add more to them. Good luck!

I like the Georgiana Moran one the best and find it the most interesting. But that's just my opinion. I agree that the first one seems the most developed, but that doesn't seem a problem; if you want to focus on another you just have a bit more to write. They all look very good, but if I saw the five of them lined up on a shelf at Chapters and read the blurbs on the backs, the third one is the one I would pick up and read.~Izzy, looking for a new nickname

I really like #2, though it doesn't feel fleshed out yet.
#1 suffers from a fatal logical flaw, right at the beginning-- if a family were to have a second child in modern China, they would simply pay a fine. A son after a daughter is especially 'nudge nudge wink wink.' if this is set farther back in time, her parents would simply have married her off, not thrown her out.
The army brats story seemed the least interesting.
I really liked the Georgians Moran idea-- very original. Not sure wha the hijacked Dr Watson meant-- is he a real person in this universe?
Ivy McMurray seemed the least developed. Your synopsis said, essentially, 'I will write a time travel story.'XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)
