He was the best one-shot character to appear on the series.

You know, I've had a fanfic idea floating around in the back of my head involving what could have happened were Aspen to have been spared and he and Vervain stuck together. There's room for character development and growth there, for both of them. It's something I'd like to get to eventually, but I don't have too many ideas and I have a hundred other things I should be writing.

You'll have to write in a clever explanation for his feigned death... as I recall, they nearly confirmed the weasel killed him.

I'd read that.

"I don't know. Does anybody know?"

If anything, I'd probably just omit the weasel altogether and have them continue as though that bit didn't happen, alternate universe-like. Wouldn't be the first time I've written something like that.

Well, maybe I'll get to it eventually. Always wanted to write for Vervain.
