It’s everything you wanted, it’s everything you don’t
It’s one door swinging open and one door swinging closed
Welcome to Season One of Damaged, my alternate General Hospital reality. While all seasons going forward will have one major storyline that pulls most of the characters together, this initial season is meant as a foundational one in which I set up the changes I’ve made to the universe (See: Changes), tie up some storylines, and shift characters around to where I want them to be going forward. It may feel a bit scattered–not all the characters feel as connected as I normally like in an ensemble nature, but it was necessary to due to the fragmentation of the GH canvas in general.
I’ve titled this season The End of the Beginning, because I think it’s the most apt. Once you finish this season, I’m confident we’ve left the reality of General Hospital in the spring of 2014 completely behind, and my version takes over.
It is eleven episodes long, taking you from April 1, 2014 to May 23, 2014.
Before you start reading, I recommend you start with the Changes page to set up the major differences between my GH universe and the one that existed on the show. Then, checking out the Introduction to the Cast will give you an idea of where characters are at the beginning of this season.
