Written By: Jake Lennington

Maggie and Eric is a fan series set 12 years into the future from the current timeline. Homer and Marge have had a fourth child, Eric, who inherited much of Marge's DNA (thanks to Homer working at the plant) and Maggie is agressive, and a tomboy, who hates Lisa with a passion. Bart, works for a local radio station with Jessica Lovejoy and Lisa is a travelling sax player. Many other aspects around town have also changed, Mr. Burns is dead, and the plant is run by Smithers with Homer still working there, Lenny and Carl are gone, Principal Skinner is mayor, and is married to Mrs. Krabappel with a son, Arlie. And many products are now produced by the XL Coorperation, which Bart works for.

Trying to cope with this new existence, Eric confronts Marge and tells of how Homer's sterility and in ability to father one last child moved Frink enough to put his new, advanced CPU to test in a boy and all the memories he's had have been replicating, and time-displaced, giving Eric the feeling he's moved through 10 years of life, but is only two years old.
