"Variations" is a series of ten "what-if" stories that ponder what might have happened should some key events in Austen's novels had happened in different ways.

The "Odo on Terok Nor" Series
Cardie-ologist's "Odo on Terok Nor" Series chronicles the Constable's life on the Station. The first three stories are set after Odo's investigation of Vaatrik's murder and depict the beginning of his career as Chief of Security and his growing reputation as someone who follows the dictates of justice and not the Prefect's will. The last two stories in the series are set after the fall of Cardassia and show a different ending for all major characters as well as the resolution for some of the story lines presented earlier in the series.
