J: The Musical

A Fanfic

By

Captain A

Based Upon

The Original "Shrek" Movie

And

"Shrek" The Broadway Musical


Author's Note: This is an idea I got after having been a faithful reader of TLSoulDude's fanfic "Prince of Heart Remix" for some time and seeing parallels between his OC's "J" and Ryan Syrus and the characters of Shrek himself and Donkey from the Shrek franchise (especially in the first movie). So here it is in written form for your enjoyment. And since I like the new "Shrek" musical on Broadway, I decided to make this an adaptation of the musical and not just the original movie. Special thanks to TLSoulDude for letting me use the characters of J, Ryan, Maria Walker (J's girlfriend) and Mandy (Ryan's eventual girlfriend—SPOILER!—who is set to appear in "Prince of Heart II" whenever it comes up on this site.)

Disclaimer: I do not own anything from either the "Shrek" franchise in general or "Shrek the Musical" in particular—they all belong to the Dreamworks company. I don't own J, Ryan, Maria or Mandy—they all belong to TL, and as I said before, I'm only using them here with his permission. I also don't own most of the other characters who will be appearing in this fic in various major or minor roles—each of them belongs to their respective companies/owners. The only thing I own here is my OC, Alex.

This fic is dedicated to the memory of the just recently deceased actor/comedian Dom DeLuise, who was a truly memorable performer and whose presence in the entertainment in the entertainment industry will be sorely missed. R.I.P, Dom. R.I.P.

Sorry it's been so long since I updated one of my own fics. I had to finish up final papers for my end-of-the-semester college exams these past few weeks, and I also had final rehearsals (and then actual performances three nights in a row) for the college spring play, "Tom Jones" (based on the literary novel, not the Las Vegas singer) as well. But I have both the finals and the play out of the way now, and I'm on summer vacation for about the next three months or so, so I'll be able to update my stories a lot more frequently. (And maybe now I'll actually get some of the DONE and not leave them hanging anymore.)

In other news, since I didn't announce at the time, I celebrated my birthday back on April 8. I'm now 22 years old. Just thought you'd like to know.

And since this fic is revealing a little bit of what is going to happen in "POH II", it can be considered as containing spoilers, and therefore should be avoided if one doesn't want to know these sorts of things.

Until I update again, catch you all later!
