Template help needed

I read a lot of fanfiction, some of which are in series by different authors.
At the moment I use this:
{#fandom}/{authors}/{series}{series_index:0>02s| - | - }{title}
to send the books to my device (Hanlen v3ext).
This sends the books to the author folders so I have to search through each author to find the next book in the series.
I would like (if possible) to send any books into the one series folder regardless of author whilst still separating any other books into authors.
Is this possible and if so can anyone help me as to how to do it?

I have V5 (PEz) and I have a version (with lots of help from chaley) that does close this for books with standard series and NoSeries (files by Author)
Since I keep almost all my books on my SD card, I created a extra layer of Alphabetical folders to keep the number of screens to look on down.

Code:
program: 
test(	field('series'), 
	strcat(
		substr(field('series'), 0, 1),
		template("-series/{series}/{series_index:0>2s}-{title}_{id}_{authors}")
	),
	template("00noseries/{author_sort[0]}_authors/{authors}/{title}_{id}-{authors}")
)

I use hierarchical series (see both Files and Folders showing?) , Normally, there are only titles in the series/Author folder
