When you write fanfiction and start to get into the lives of these characters beyond canon, more characters are always going to show up. Most often these characters are originals…filling the holes in the character’s lives that canon stories may create. I hold dear every original character I ever wrote but I think my all-time favorite (arguably) might be Special Agent William Grayson, who became CJ’s primary Secret Service agent after the death of Simon Donovan.
I wrote a lot of stories about CJ with Bill right smack in the middle but the one closest to my heart is He Wouldn’t Say He’s Anything Special. I know they didnt need a relationship like this in canon, especially after Simon’s death, but I wished for a character like Bill so it was easy to create one in her life.
