Maggie and Eric
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.

Of course still being the prankster, Bart, instead of doing pranks on campus, uses the nerds to do his other "boring" non-on air work like reading to little kids and public appearances with KBXL listeners at the local malls, etc. Meanwhile, Maggie and Eric had both lined up their friends to meet Bart, but when he's a no show, the two youngest siblings decide to remodel Bart's work ethic.
