Strictly Business - Murdoc wants to come out of retirement but his former employers insist that he take out MacGyver as a demonstration of his sincere desire to rejoin them.
Honest Abe - Mac's trip to the airport to pick up a grandfather for a boy's bar mitzvah turns into a wild international caper involving Caribbean terrorists and a stolen helicopter.

Fan Fiction Guidelines/Submission Info
Do you have a MacGyver-related scene, story, or poem that I could post here? Or do you have fanfiction posted at another site that I could link to? Great! Read on to review our fanfiction guidelines and to find out how to contact me.
- We want quality fanfiction. Check out How to Write an Almost Readable Fan Fiction (or similar) for tips on making your fic post-worthy.
- No slash or NC-17 material, please. Basically, if they didn't show it on MacGyver, we would probably count it as too explicit to post here.
If you want to write something, but don't have a particular story in mind, why not consider writing "extended summaries" of episodes? That's primarily what I've done above. It's basically just watching the show and then detailing what happens in each scene. Put the scenes together and voilà! You have a story. (A story that would be particularly appreciated by those who aren't able to watch the episodes.)
Include With Your Fic
Copy and paste the guide below at the start of your fic, and include the requested information.
Title of the Story:
Brief Summary of the Story:
Your Name or Nickname, for the By line:
Your Email Address: (Optional. Include it here *only* if you want it posted with your story, for feedback from readers.)
Your Website Address: (Optional. Include if you would like it posted with your fic as part of your credit.)
Disclaimer: (Optional. I have a standard, if you don't want to personalize one.)
Additional Comments/Info: (Optional. Examples include the time frame of the story, potential spoiler warnings for episodes, asking readers to send you feedback, etc.)
Sending The Fic
The options for sending the fiction are listed below.
- You can copy and paste the story into the body of an email.
- Or, send your fanfic as an attachment (as a Microsoft Word, Wordpad, or Notepad document), but be sure to put MacGyver fanfiction attached in the subject line, so I'll know the attachments are safe to open.
- Or, if you have fanfiction posted elsewhere - such as fanfiction.net - that meets the above guidelines, send me the URL at the email address below.
When sending fanfiction, don't forget to include the info requested above. This will help me to post your fic in a timely manner, and it will help the readers to have pertinent details. (And it's very basic information, so I don't think I'm asking too much.)
Email your fic -- with MacGyver FanFiction in the subject line, so I'll know it isn't spam -- to anne(at)rusted-crush(dot)com and, of course, replace (at) and (dot) with the proper symbols.
When emailing me, please be aware that it may take me several days to respond, as I have a rather busy Real Life. However if a week or two passes and you still haven't received a response, feel free to write again.
Finally, I know this page has a lot of information, but if you'd like to send something, please don't let it intimidate you. I'd *love* to post new stories here, so I'm certainly not trying to exclude anyone. I'm just trying to let writers know what info I need from them. I sincerely appreciate those who consider having their work posted here. If you have any questions, or if you'd like for me to read your fic and give you feedback on it, please let me know.
