I really like the modern verses. I keep the fact that the Nostromo happened and that aliens exist and this makes it a little more difficult is completely modern verses, i.e. now she has to convince the whole populous aliens do exist, I still shrink back the time period. She comes home on Amanda’s 11th birthday. It’s not completely far fetched, at least I hope, we have all this technology, we just hoard it for these missions. Yet, the mere fact that Amanda is alive and kicking in these verses make her 100% less volatile. She had this perfectly good reason to seek help and heal. She’s doing just that. Because of the fact Amanda is her soulmate. Everything will be fine, she just needs to get over this, put it in the past. Her ex-husband is a douche, but nothing matters like Amanda matters. I actually write him exactly like my ex would act so I can get all this subtle revenge on her. So, Jonesy is still fully her coping mechanism when she doesn’t have Amanda to lighten her mood, she takes sleeping pills, but she’s fine and she’s getting better by the day.
