Plot Line - B ( Use of Character? )

Visitor From Another AU

I brought this up in my intro thread what I'm doing that lead me to this place. Currently for example I've been in a long running debate on if Ivy should be formally introduced into the second plot line a.k.a. "B". The story currently running has three main plots in it but only the second has CS ties.

First off I want to state Carmen Sandiego has appeared and been mentioned before in the series but she is far from focused on. Instead for example to act as a bridge from one story to the current. The last story set in the distant past. I wrote the bridge scene as the dawn of the ACME Detective Agency being a formal business. In this AU, ACME is essentially a thing of the past having been absorbed into a multifaceted government agency by modern times. When that merger happened, ACME in the melting pot had it's employees go in different directions where it was felt they were needed. Zack & Ivy got different placements.

Zack has appeared more than once and I intend to have him in the current story. Ivy has been mentioned but hasn't appeared yet. While Zack's role has been established it wouldn't be hard at all to put her into the plot. But the problem is I frankly can't think of a role for her.

In the series after the first appearance in the second, it arises Zack is mentoring a kid ( teen ) named Finn about how to be a detective. When in the current story by mistake Zack lets a bad guy rob a museum. One of his co-workers makes a point he's working with Finn who doesn't have experience and he should be working with his sister who is a field agent.

Already one other character is in this mix, a guy named Alan, but I won't go into details to him here. Not remotely a CS character.

Thoughts?

That’s a good premise to have mine combines various characters too but it’s complicated to go into the corporate world should be more formulaic and profit focused and problems could arise by them not paying attention to important things...

Veteran but I wrote sporadically. I basically kept the story in my head and when I do write it just all comes out until the Babes in Toyland story that was written on request of little Miss Charlet

Which is why I felt so bad when I couldn’t do the story the way I wanted. But I was a big boy about it and didn’t cry. (on the outside anyway)
