Here is a reminder of what's coming up next from the Collinsverse. On Sunday 15th July (that's a week from tomorrow) 'Kevin and Oscar: Snapshots' kicks off as we pick up directly after the Christmas Special to find out exactly what happened at the Enchantment in the Sky dance, and immediately afterwards. Like 'Kevin and the Gang: In-Between', there are eight episodes in this series, this time charting the adventures of Kevin and Oscar between the end of 2003 and their backpacking tour of Mexico during the second half of 2006.

This batch had a few potential titles at various stages, but in the end I settled on 'Snapshots' because I thought that was the one which described it best - it really is a series of snapshots from Kevin and Oscar's lives during that three-year period, offering intriguing snippets of their interactions with friends, family, school, work (both voluntary and paid), hobbies, ambitions, globe-trotting adventures and, most importantly of all, each other. Believe it or not, there's even a ghost investigation in one episode!

It's almost two years since I wrote the first draft of this series and it's been through a whole lot of refinements to try to get it to make as much in-universe sense as possible (not least because of 'In-Between' coming along in the meantime) and I really think it's finally ready at last! You actually wouldn't believe the hours we've both spent trying to get the Collinsverse to make as much sense as possible, in terms of both events and characterisation, as well as eliminating anything that could even come close to being seen as a continuity error, but of course it's all been worth it! As we're often heard to remark to each other, the Collinsverse makes far more sense than the "real" world!

As has been mentioned before, 'Snapshots' will be dovetailed with Rosey's series of eight adventures involving Kylie and Eduardo spreading their wings during the summer of 2000, which is just after the main series of 'The Riveras' in case you've forgotten. Releases will continue to come every three weeks, so you're still getting stories from one and then the other of us in turn, although this time they'll make up two separate batches of adventures set at two completely different times. But don't worry - you'll soon get used to it, and it will all make perfect sense!

Kevin and Oscar: Snapshots, Episode 1 - Truth and Consequences, by me.

December 2003: In the aftermath of the Enchantment in the Sky dance, Beth and Dana are called in for a chat with the school principal. Meanwhile, Kevin and Oscar must face their friends, their enemies, and finally each other.

A couple of couples stop beating about the bush as this series kicks off, otherwise it wouldn't really be able to kick off at all! I think this is a pretty accurate depiction of how things would have been in 2003, but I don't think it would be the same now, at least not in every way. Hopefully this is a story to get you thinking, and also looking forward to some highly titillating young adult adventures to follow!

The real wild card is Carlos. He's definitely grown into a more tolerant person than he was, but there's still the chance he won't take this completely well.

Either way, it should be interesting to read. As always.
