Also. I've been doing some heavy planning on S3. S1 will be 22 episodes in total (the first semester of the 2012-2013 year) S2 will pick up from that after Sectionals and it'll be 13 episodes, which will include Spencer and Jessica's graduation. S3 will be 22 episodes and it's going to consist of some of the most ambitious stories yet.
I think Glee's problem is that they tried to be more ambitious and big, but totally lost the emotional centre of most of their characters. Wheras with my fan-fic, S3 will be ambitious and explosive but it'll be the most emotional. I think it'lll be bigger things, the club is tackling not the actual scale of it.
Just read it and I love the trivias. I can't wait to see the pre-rituals in the upcoming Regionals ep, haha.
S3 already? Lol. I suppose it's better to overplan than underplan. I've planned up to S4 for my fic. I'm hoping I can make it to S4, after that, it might have to stop, as I'm not sure whether I'd be able to continue writing then, for many reasons.
I like those ideas. So it's kind of like you switched your original plans around, so that season one no longer has 13 eps, but 22, and season two now has 13 instead of 22. Btw, I know I might be wrong, but I have a feeling SD win Sectionals, because otherwise there'd be no competition in S2 (wouldn't there?)
I'm sad to think that Spencer and Jess will be gone, but I suppose it's just the way it's got to be, but hopefully their graduation won't be there absolute last appearance, because otherwise then I'd be really sad if we didn't get to have a scene every now and then of how they're going.
Also, about characters graduating. After S2, do you think it'd be unnecessary to have Terri be one of those characters that makes reappearances every now and again, or do you think it'd be stupid for him to appear after S2 ends? I know I've got time to think about it, but it sort of helps me with planning for the final arc of S2. I feel like if I bring him back, his role will be quite minimal, sort of like Quinn's in S4 of Glee, but I feel his character was sort of main in S1, and that all of the time I've spent on him already was kind of wasted if I just write him out in S3.
I agree. Glee always tries to tackle heavy/big stories, when really most viewers would be happy with lighter stories that still develop characters. I think S4's continuity was completely messed up. I know they tried to make amends for some continuity errors in the season, but there were simply way too many errors that they've introduced. And one of my biggest annoying things about last season was how Sam was made extremely dumb. Still bugs me how it just came out of nowhere. And also Ryder typing perfectly on the computer, when he's supposed to have dsylexia. Pretty stupid.
Thanks :) I hope you understand why i cut the scenes but most of them will be re-used anyway in different ways. No, the pre-rituals scene is in the Sectionals episode which is Ep 14.
I think S4 would probably be my last season if i ever get there. But even if there's only 1 season, it's a good one i think. And yes, it's better to overplan than underplan.
Yeah, i've changed some plans around. I thought S2 would be better as 13 episodes as if there's not more, it would just be fillers or unescescarry stuff. S2 is the same year as S1 but the second semester. You'll just have to see if they win or not...S2 is kind of a different beast to S1. Even if they do win, they'll have Regionals to contend to.
Aww..it's nice to know you like them characters. Jessica's not had a lot so far and apart of me has been using her in moderation. S2 mostly consists of their afterschool plans/ graduation prep...since Spencer and Jess are the only ones in a glee club who are graduating.
Nope, graduation will not be their last appearences. I feel Spencer has evolved into a character that's so good, that it would be a loss to write her off. Spencer will still be a main character in S3, you'll see whether she makes it to NYADA or not..S2 is about her audition processes and things like that. Warning: Don't expect anything.
Jessica will still be featured in some capacity but she'll be a recurring character. I've already planned everything and it looks promising.
I feel to be quite honest, you should write Terri off after S2...you can reference him now and then but if you don't feel anything in writing him or don't know what how to approach his character, there's no point flogging a dead horse, is there? I feel he could dissapear in S3 and then in like the last ever episode, he could have a guest appearence to tie stuff together.
S3 of my fan-fiction will head into a more darker territory (is that how you spell it?) but a part of this stems from the fact, Jessica and Spencer will now be out of school and living properly in the big world. I don't think Glee adresses these things properly or realistically and i'm going to try my best to hit the nail on the coffin.
S4 of Glee would have been a lot more better if instead of having newbies, it was just Blaine, Sam, Artie, Tina, Joe, Sugar and the other chair-fillers were just background dancers..then we could have had a more coherent focus on each of them. Though admittenly, i love Kitty, Ryder and Unique..for some reason, i prefer Unique than Wade.
They did say in a scene that Ryder's gotten better with his typing though.
P.S. S2 will also follow a new format where since there's 13 episodes, each episode will have a main focus. For instance, one episode will focus heavily on Mary Lou and the other, Parrish.
Hey. Sorry for all the messages :) Have you heard Demi Lovato's new album? She released them last-night before the album's release. They're so good..it's definetley her best album..and a Demi tribute in S2 is in the works..i can now officially confirm. It'll feature music from Don't Forget, Here We Go Again, Unbroken, Demi and even some of her Camp Rock songs. :)
I've still not written 1x07 yet but i'm just not feeling it yet. I want to write it when i feel ready but since i've been away, i've planned SO MUCH. This season is going to be insane..and there's a special episode ahead - which i can't spoil. 1x07 is also going to be the longest episode of the season yet.
That's fine. :) I was just at school, that's all. And no, I haven't heard her new album actually. That is something I am going to have to do this weekend (I don't have time this week, otherwise I would totally do right away).
I haven't planned all of the songs for that episode yet. I have some that are confirmed, but since she has a new album, I might be adding some of those newbies into the ep. There are also some other songs that I'm thinking of removing (but don't worry, Heart Attack isn't being cut :P)
I understand how you feel. Like, I've finished Everybody's Changing, Part 1, but I haven't really started Part 2 at all yet. Firstly, because I've been doing other things that have had priority over my writing, but secondly, because I'm really not sure where to start. I have things planned, but I don't know how to write them into scenes. That's what I'm worse at. I can think of really great ideas, but sometimes it can be difficult to put them into episodes.
I'm really excited for ep 7 of PTS. :)
By the way, I hope you don't find this question silly, but I'm really not sure what to do with Teddy in S2. I sorta feel like writing her out, because she's practically a wasted character, but I know that there's got to be some good storyline I could give her. Do you have any ideas?
I even thought of giving her a boyfriend, but at the moment, the relationships are pretty heavy and I don't want to add any more. S2 has no new relationships involving the main characters. Any relationship that has been used in S1 is what is going to be explored more.
Btw, sorry for the very long message. Didn't realize until I went to post it. :P Sorry.
Thank god...HA isn't being cut. I think some of her new songs will definetley be good for the episode. I just feel it..though i know Demi is sort of winson-based if i remember you saying. :)..and from that, i expect a Winson duet.
Yeah, i get it. Just take your time...it always comes out better. Sometimes - about the bit of having good ideas but them being difficult. Sometimes, i have good ideas but bad execution or i can have good ideas...but they're out of place and should have been in another episode or something.
It's not silly at all. I think maybe she could be the second to learn about Rex's crush on Nick and sort of be his guide. Maybe Teddy thinks he should keep it a secret...or she could join the super girls and encourage underdogs to join. Sorry, them ideas might be a little crap but i don't know..maybe it would be best, to write her off.
Me personally, wouldn't want her to have a boyfriend because then it feels like..the only way she can have a focus, is to be on someone's arm.
Yes, there is one Winson duet in Demi. But there are plenty of other Winson duets in other parts of the season. This season is going to be so different, relationship-wise. Like, the relationships are still being explored and developed, but I'm hoping they don't take over from the main plot anymore, unlike the first season a lot of the time.
I've actually got so many ideas that I have that I wish I used. Although, I always think of them after the episode that they could have been used in is released.
I like the idea of Teddy helping Rex with his feelings for Nick, acting sort of as a guide. And I liked your second idea too, but since it's sort of similar to Sugar joining The Super Girls, I probably won't use that idea. But it sort of gave me an idea for Teddy though. I've thought of something else that could display her and give her a story.
Yeah, that was my opinion too. I hate it when characters are introduced for the sole purpose of being a love interest to another character. For example, that's probably why characters like Blaine, etc., started off pretty boring and characterless. Btw, I hate Glee for adding Adam into the story. He's practically added nothing to the story, and they've barely continued his relationship with Kurt at all, I thought they were going to handle it well, but they didn't. Hopefully, there's some continuation in S5.
Btw, what did you think of the All or Nothing songs/spoilers?
I thought there would be a Winson duet and i think it would be good if Harmony and Jason had another duet, since their last one was amazing. Funny, how Jason did nothing really in the first nine episodes and then he's become such a prominent part and he's sort of the male lead to me.
Randon but i had a storyline in my head..what if Harmony gives away her lead to Amanda again and she's asked to pick a male lead..and she says Nick. But Rex is annoyed and Amanda thinks it's because he wanted to be lead, which shocks her since he's not shown much background interest in the club..but really Rex hates the thought of Amanda and Nick spending even more time..espescially picking songs where he's in the back, swaying.
Thanks. I don't mind about the second idea..it's just how imagined Tina to be on the cheeros (and then when she was on, it was different to how i'd pictured it) Cool, can't wait.
I actually liked Blaine in S2, he was my favourite version but after that, i just wished they made him and Kurt - a one season thing, just like Kurt's first proper relationship as Blaine is so tiring now.
I actually liked Adam and it's a real shame, we didn't get more than what we had. I thought he'd be something big like Brody, without being an escort or an assumed drug-dealer.
I'm feeling nothing for the new episodes and it's annoying me, how everyone's talking about the seasons to come when we've still go this episode to finish first. None of the songs were good to me..they weren't finale-like or even Regionals material. I would have rather had a Tina/ Blaine duet...just because Marley writes the original songs, doesn't mean she has to star in them all the time.
I Love It was pretty auto-tuned but i see Tina/ Kitty in the photos, so i'm happy..i'm hoping the performance makes the song more listenable. HOF isn't as special as i think people are making it out to be...oh well, i hope the episode is better than what i expect.
I'm actually thinking of another Harmony/Jason duet. In fact, if I'm being truly honest, at the start of the series, I was thinking of making Harmony and Jason the main couple, but then I thought that Terri would have fitted better, somehow. But I'm sort of glad I didn't go down the previous path as otherwise Winson wouldn't exist and Winter as a character would be much less developed, as Jason has played a big part in her storylines.
I really like that idea. I'm probably going to use that. Although, it will take place in episode three, as ep 1 has many other things to sort out first, and ep 2 is obviously the episode set in the past. In fact, that works really well with the story I've already planned for ep 3, which is a bit of a Amanda/Nick/Rex story.
Me too, i thought they would have handled Tina joining the cheerios much differently. Same with Blaine.
S2 Blaine was my favorite too. In S3, he was okay, but soon after that was when I kinda went off him.
I thought Adam was going to play a big part in Kurt's story, too, just like Brody, but obviously the writers had other plans. I feel like introducing Adam was a waste, because if Klaine is going to be endgame (I'm just assuming here), then what the hell is Adam going to be doing later on? Is he just going to be another character that comes and leaves straight away...
I've hated the majority of the songs lately. They're just not good songs IMO and I barely remember any of them very much.
My fave song in AON, is All or Nothing. The rest were pretty average, and even Jessica Sanchez's songs were pretty bad, IMO. I Love It was sooo autotuned (or at least it sounds like it). I think ND shouldn't have chosen such recent, poppy numbers. They should have gone with completely different songs, I think. What was Mr. Schue thinking? Lol.
Hey Jordan. It's me, Jack...i couldn't get onto my account because i forgot my password ( On my computer, it's an open account) Anyways, don't know if you've seen but some spoilers have been posted for 1x14 and 1x15. 1x14 is Sectionals and a game-changer...the theme is acapella (Can you add this to the page) so ADD SOME SUGGESTIONS to the page if you have some.
Yeah, that's ok. Episode 15 is going to be a good one too...
But i have yet to write Ep 7 because obviously the funeral (which thankfully is over) and everything else..but when i get home, i'm gonna start writing and it'll be released probs end of May ( I know, a long time) And yes, Ep 7 is quite a good episode for what i have planned..it's quite a group-centric episode.
Also thanks for your suggestion of "Smile". I've not really heard that song but i'll listen to it when i'm home and see. Also, thanks for adding the source to the acapella theme. Think that's a good theme?
Yay for group episodes! I love those eps. Ep 7 is looking good so far. :)
The earliest time my first ep will be released is late May, the latest is probably late June. And I've changed it from being both part 1 and 2 released separately, because I don't think I'll have part 2 finished on time.
Thats alright, it's only one song. Sorry I couldn't think of anything else really. Also, I'm pretty sure that acappella has two p's (I'm pretty sure). And yes, it is a great theme, I'm really excited to see what songs will be picked for the episode. (:
Yeah, I've started to realize that as well. Although I'm glad that it's taken time for the episodes to become more group centric, as it's quite realistic in terms of in reality, people wouldn't be able to feel accepted in a group straight away, and it'd take time for them to really unite as a team, if you get what I mean.
Yay for Walker, Devonne and Arrow! I'm hoping there's sort of an explanation as to why Walker kissed Spencer. I have a feeling he secretly has a crush on her or something, but then it'd be quite difficult to manage that story if he supposedly had a crush on Beth the whole time.
Ooh. I have a weird feeling he's going to be in glee club soon, possibly the same situation for CJ too. Just me thinking, though, might not happen.
Yeah, I think it's good. I've got quite a few two-part episodes this season, so I'm just hoping that the season doesn't drag on for too long. Because if you add up how many episodes there are (counting each half of an episode as an entire episode), there are going to be 27 episodes (there are 5 episodes that are split in half).
Hey i'm back properly. I would have replied to your message yesterday but my flight back home was an early one, and i didn't get any sleep (I only was dosing or dozing, however you spell it) I was up all-night, throwing up...i had a bag near my bed but i must have let the bag fall onto my bed, wetting my matress with my vomit. I was also very stiff so i couldn't walk properly..it was horrible. But i'm feeling better today.
Yes. I never wanted Star Dominion to become group-centric in the beginning..althought Beth and Aurora were the first ones to join. You can tell how far they've come in such a short time, with them supporting Devonne's decision to quit in the last episode.
There were actually little hints on Walker/ Spencer...in The L-O-V-E Ballerina/ We Are Shining but yes, there will be an explanation.
CJ will not be joining SD, i can confirm. Though he's not been a big part so far, i'm enjoying having a person, who you think is a villian, not being in the glee club. Also...i don't know if i told you but there was meant to be a scene between CJ and Spencer in the last episode but it was cut...but it was really important to the Courtney/ Spencer storyline. Anyways, the scene will now be in the next episode where i think it fits more (Btw..about Ep 7, i haven't even written anything yet...and i won't be for awhile)
I think it'll be fine. Sounds good, if you ask me.
Hey, that's fine. There's no rush, really. I'm glad you're feeling better, that sounded awful the way you felt before. :\
Btw, school starts again tomorrow. It won't really change anything in terms of my wiki activity, however I won't have as much time to write the eps.
I know, they have come so far. I love how you've managed to develop so many characters in such a short period of time.
Yes, I realized them, I just was curious at to whether there'd be even more of a continuation explaining Walker's actions in kissing Spencer.
Okay then. I think it would have been interesting seeing him in the club, though, but either way I'm happy. I think you might have told me about that cut scene. I'm glad you're going to use it now though, because if it as important to the Courtney/Spencer story like you said, then it should be used. :)
That's fine as your fan-fic is on a break anyway. But i'm excited for everything nevertheless.
Yeah, i think i've done a quite good job - even for the recurring characters. Though sometimes, a part of me wants to re-write the first couple of episodes as i kind of feel that i led on that characters like Felicia, Lizzy, Brandon and Idina were going to be big characters, and i also feel my writing is crap compared to how it has improved now. But oh well, if people enjoyed it then, that's all what matters and i enjoyed it at the time so...
Well..CJ isn't joining as of yet and there's no plans yet as i'm just focusing on this season at the moment (though that's not to say i don't have big plans for S2...and i don't mean big plans as in Quinn Fabray's so -called "big plans")
I think i did tell you about the cut scene....and the revised scene suits better here i think...+ Plus though it's a quite group-centric episode, Spencer's got a big role in this one and there will some continuation of the Beth/ Walker/ Spencer storyline.
Because the season has been extended and Courtney's storyline was only meant to be 13 episodes, i mean that was the original plan. Though Courtney will return soon (not telling you when), she'll only appear when it's important...then again, she is a recurring character after all.
I know the feeling so much. I absolutely HATE the first few eps in my fic. The plot is alright, it's just the style it's written in is really bad. I feel like sometimes going back and editing things to make it more descriptive and use correct language, etc. I actually don't really see the problem with the first couple of eps. The only thing that I didn't like about them were that they were written in present tense, in comparison to the usual past tense you know write in. But other than that, I thought those eps were great. :)
Haha, I still really want to know what Quinn's "big plans" were. I hope someday the writers bring that up in a joke or something, for example, Quinn might be saying about a big plan, then someone else says "yeah, like your big plans in NY." Or something like that, although I doubt the writers would remember anything that reflects upon continuity.
Yay, some more Spencer. :) I've missed her lately. And I'm really excited to see how this Walketh story is going to turn out in the episodes, it was a really great idea and I'm so excited to see what is going to happen.
Yeah. I have to admit that Courtney is one of my faves, I'm not really sure why, I just feel that her whole character is interesting in itself.
I think your first episodes are good. I mean i enjoyed them obviously as it led me to continue to read them and i review your fan-fiction above anyone else's so it shows. I feel like leaving my episodes and i think you should to be honest, as it reflects your improvements.
Aww thanks. I didn't like the present tense either and i feel past tense is a lot easier to read in..as i find present tense alot weirder and it's easy to disconnect with - i find. In the beginning, i didn't plan on present tense, i just did but oh well. I think after the series is finished, i'll only edit them to past tense - that's all i'd do.
Apparently, it was dying her hair :P I think that would be hilarious.
I love how people love Spencer and can't get enough of her. I always try to have in doses though (emphasis on try) because she's a character - i don't want people to become tired of. Wheras like Devonne, she's meant to be one of the main characters, if not, the lead...and Spencer originally was only meant to be a secondary character.
Aww..that's great to hear. I love Courtney and i love her friendship (if you can call it that) with Spencer. Definetley more coming up with her.
I think plot-wise, my first episodes were good, but execution and language-wise (like descriptive language, etc.), they were just average.
Okay then, maybe soon I will go back and change a few things. Obviously, I won't change any plot issues, just add/remove things to make the language and style more interesting.
Present tense can be confusing to write in, in my opinion. In fact, my first episode was written in present tense too. I'm not sure why fics always seem to start in that tense. :P
IKR, how is dying hair a "big NY plan"? Lol :P
I understand. She's a main character, but not really completely main, if that makes any sort of sense.
I'm not even sure what it is that makes me enjoy Courtney so much. I think her scenes are really powerful to the story, as she was obviously the one that basically started TSS, which has impacted the plot quite a bit.
Hey :) On my wiki (Not now but about when Ep 11 is out or something) I'm going to hold auditions for some new characters. I've already got plans for two girl characters...and "Dominic" you know that character who was originally going to be a regular? but he got wrote out..well he's appearing.
I was wondering if when it happens, would you be interested in auditioning a girl and/or another guy. If you did, try something i've not got yet.
Oh, okay. I'm not really sure whether to be happy or sad about Dominic being used again, because to be honest, I barely know anything about the character. :P
The funny thing is, I'm usually never motivated to audition characters for fics, but when it's a fic thats already running, I love auditioning. Like, I usually wouldn't audition for anyone's fanfic, but I only audition for yours or Hinton's. :) So yes, I will definitely audition someone. I think I sort of have an idea for a character already who's a bit different, but you'll just have to wait for audition time to see who they are :P
Dominic was a good character but because i had the episodes pre-planned, i didn't want to rush or do too much in one episode...so he was written out.
I'm never motivated for fan-fics or anything but thanks for thinking about auditioning for me. I would have for yours's but i'm more of the episode guy.
It's not a real actual plan yet but because some people are leaving in the middle or end of the season. I'll need some new characters, not replacements, just new characters and Ep 17 will introduce a few of them..which i have planned. I have a great story for this girl and everything. It'll change up the dynamics of the group aswell.
Yes, i'll drop a message on your wall whenever it is.
P.S. I've posted some mini spoilers on the 1x08 page "Tribute". Check it out.
Yeah, that makes perfect sense. I'd rather wait to see a character introduced and developed well rather than have the character introduced immediately but not develop much.
Thats fine, I'm sort of in the same boat, but I do make exceptions for yours and Hinton's fics.
Okay then. Just pop the link on my wall whenever it is. :) Haha. Btw, sort of on the same topic, there aren't going to be too many new characters introduced in S2. Sometime in the middle of the season I might be holding auditions too as I will need new glee members to be introduced in S3, otherwise by S4, I've figured out I will only have about four original members from S1, and a few extras that are introduced along the way.
Hey :) I know it's for my fan-fiction but would it be okay with you, if in my S2, i did a Demi Lovato tribute episode too? She's like one of my music obsessions right now, i can't stop listening to Heart Attack and she's so inspirational and i have a story to tell, for a tribute ep.
Of course I'd been fine with it! You didn't have to ask, to be honest. I have a feeling you probably even had the idea before me. :P
I love Heart Attack heaps too! It's going to be the audition song for the character I auditioned for Hinton's fic. I'm also using that song as a duet or solo (haven't decided yet) in the Demi tribute ep. The ep will be a big Winson episode, as well as a storyline for a new character named Bonnie Rapture that will be introduced.
Btw, i don't think you saw yet, but I posted the banner for the new ep on your wiki in the photos section. I posted a few copies because I wasn't sure which one looked best in your opinion. :) If there's anything wrong let me know. I'm not sure if they're alright.
Thanks for your support and no, i didn't have the idea before you. I just really want to do a tribute episode next season and i think Demi's a great artist to start off...plus, it won't be just for the sake of using her songs because she's actually a inspiration. Don't you agree? She really has grown up from that girl in Sonny With A Chance and Camp Rock.
Her music is way more better than Miley or Selena's in my opinion.
I've practically listened to Heart Attack to death. Cool :) I'd have it as a solo, it's actually going to be in my fan-fiction in a later episode...i also think it's one of those songs where the music video actually helps the song (if you get what i mean)
Oooh. I remember Bonnie, when you talked about her.
Thanks :) I love it.
Btw...i went to my interview the other day and guess what? I got accepted right there, honestly i didn't think my drawings were prize-winners or that amazing but he liked it and said i was independent in the aspect that i write a fan-fiction and i showed intiative...and i don't just like Art.
) The guy is putting me on a course higher than the one i applied for. I applied for entry level but he put me on Level 1 :) Sorry for that...i'm just so happy. It's what i've got to be after the recent death in the family.
Oh okay, I understand. And yes, I agree so much. Her voice, appearance, style of music, and just her overall personality has grown so much since she was on those Disney shows/movies. Her songs have actually inspired a few storylines in S2. I'm using 8 of her songs in the tribute ep.
Personally I don't like either Selena or Miley's music very much. The few Selena songs I used in S1 just fitted well with the story, and there are a few Miley songs I like though, although, strangely, I used more Selena than Miley or Demi. :\ Oh well, I'll make up for that this season by having an entire tribute episode in S2 with Demi's music. :P
I did that as well, listening to HA so much. I've had to have a break from the song because I had listened to it for so long. :P
Sorry, HA was always planned as a solo, I got the duet and the solo in the ep mixed up. Whoops, haha. It's a solo sung by Winter.
Yeah. She'll have a large role towards the end of the season. Her biggest story is in Demi.
YAY!! I'm so happy for you! And I agree with him so much, having a fan fic does show how you're independent, can do things when they need to be done as well as that you're a brilliant writer! Haha. That's great. :)
P.S : Did you like the assembly scene? And my mash-up of People Like Us and Change Your Life.
And thanks for commenting on my continuity, i'm just one of those people who kinda of analyze and nit-pick on TV shows or novels and things...so i always try my best to retain what i've done or said. There's one character mistake i made though for Aurora. In Severed Strings, it's said she doesn't like eating meat or animal but in Part One of the last ep, she ate bacon. It's not a glaring continuity error but still...but it's my first so it's not too bad. *Let's put it down, she was having a bad day*
I definitely can do that for you. I'll try and make it ASAP and post it ASAP too, but like I've said i'm quite busy.
The assembly scene was alright. Nothing spectacular but obviously nothing below average. Personally, though, you need a few scenes that are of less importance to the episode, as it breaks up all the heavier, vital plots of the episode.
The mash-up was great! Those songs actually work so well together. :) Btw I just realized that you must really like Little Mix as you've used three songs of their so far. And two of them were used in mash-ups too, lol. Their songs do mix well with other songs though, maybe that's why their called Little MIX. lol :P
Yeah, I've kind of picked that up. Actually, now that you say that, I remember too. She ate a BLT sandwhich yet earlier on it was said that she was vegeterian. Oh well, you've made the exact same mistake that Glee made with Rachel. And you could say that she's not a "hardcore" vegeterian. Like, she'll try and avoid meat when she can, but she will eat if it needed be. But then again, that wouldn't work either as I'm pretty sure that you said that BTL's were her favourite types of sandwhiches :/
That was a really hard scene for me to write because i wrote that one mostly in an instant but i didn't like know how i'd write it or in what format, to get my points across (If you get what i mean) I thought i did "Cease Fire" good though.
Thanks, i thought so too. I really do like Little Mix but i mostly like their songs, i don't really like them (Not to say i hate them) I find their songs are catchy and they're british too and i think british artists are just as good as american or australian artists. I just think it's a shame how here, american singers take over all radio channels and music channels but our singers are rarely heard over the pond. I mean, some people on GW, didn't even know "Wings".
I'm quite safe sometimes in my song selections...like i like Little Mix, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears music...but i try to only do them if there's a reason and a vital one too. But sometimes, they're just fun numbers as sometimes you've just gotta have fun, random numbers.
No. Beth's the one who loves BLT's. Rory doesn't like eating meat or animals but she had some rashers of bacon in Ep 6 pt. 1. It's only a small error though, don't you think?
I understand. But I personally believe that it's good to have a few scenes that are a bit more bland compared to the others, as to me it makes the other scenes stand out more.
The hardest storyline for me was the "prank" that Ava pulled off in Promalicious. I found all scenes involving that story difficult to write and I wasn't sure how to portray the events, and how to handle the issue correctly. It was really difficult for me to write and those scenes took so much time to plan out.
I'm sorta the same, I love their music, but I don't really like the actual artists that much. Maybe it's just because I don't really even know them very much though. Yeah, to me I really don't care where the singer/s come from, I judge them purely on their music and whether they're a good role model or not. Australia is extremely multicultural. The radio station here mostly plays American or Australian musicians, but when there are popular songs from other countries like Britian, they will play it over and over. Australia has a reputation for replaying the top songs. It's kind of annoying. But I knew "Wings" for a long time.
Yeah. I try to use as many different artists too, but I obviously used a lot of repeated artists in S1.
Oh okay, whoopsie, my error.
And yes, of course I think it's a small error. It's nothing major that changes the entire story, it only changes one thing and that's whether she's a vegeterian or not. :P
I'm really happy you enjoyed Melinda. She never has a lot in episodes but what she does have, is valuable and story- related.
I'm not mad at you for thinking Marc and Walker's friendship isn't special or anything, i actually understand but it's only just began and maybe as weird as it sounds, Marc's full romantic heart might rub off on Walker and make him realise the person who sang that song to Beth is gone. Btw, the change of Walker has been purposely done so don't worry and it's only same with Kitty but it's realistic to me. People change over time, the ones who are sweet end up becoming bitchy or snarky.
And yes, Dana is my Santana and Devonne is my Rachel (In a warped sense), a tougher Rachel of course.
You're right, i didn't include Walker's reaction but like you also said, it's so you know in the next episode. Beth's kind of been easy-loving, mature but sort of cracked and as weird as it is, with her relationship down the drain, she feels more empowered as a girl and stronger than she did before. And no, it's not weird you love Principal Jone's dialogues. If i say so myself, i love her and i'd love her to be my principal.
It doesn't make someone more happy to see their work has been enjoyable to read. Thanks for the review.
Thanks so much for your review and here's some spoilers for the next episode
I posted them because it'll be a long time before it comes out as i've got holidays, an interview and a funeral because my nana has sadly died. Glad your back though you've still got a lot on your plate
OMG I LOVE THE SPOILERS!! They're supercalafragalisticexpialidoshus! I am so excited for the episode. :)
Aww, I hope it hasn't come as a shock though, because usually people can cope with things like these if there were signs/they were in hospital earlier on, etc. If you ever need someone to talk to, I'll always be here, even though you don't know me in person I'd like to think we can still talk. :)
Aww thanks. Though i think you may have spelt that wrong...btw, just realised that song would be the PERFECT Mary Lou and Jessica song. :) I am too. Of course, it's not even been written yet or anything because i've got an interview on Wednesday, Funeral next week and a holiday week after (It's a meet up with family holiday)
I did come as a shock as day before, my mum and her brother were saying how well she looked (She was in her 80's) and she said herself, i feel so great. But you see she's been losing weight and my mum has been taking care of her at home because she hates hospitals and she was scared of dying but as sad as it sounds, i think she got pushed to the point where she wanted to die because it was painful to carry on + She died in her home but she died in her sleep so it was peaceful enough...and also i think she wanted to die where her husband died about 20 years before.
Yeah, if i need to talk or let stuff out, i will :)
Here's a spoiler for y'all. There will be a Diva week and Unique and Mercedes will be appearing. Unique has a guest spot, she'll be appearing in Ep 16, 18, 19 and 20. It's going to be so much fun.
Also. Do you think you could do me a favor and add lyrics or summaries to the song pages. Only when you have time and stuff.
Pages that need help (Summaries or lyrics)
Ep 4 - Blood Brothers, We Will Rock You, Iris and Unwell and other ep songs. You don't have to do them all but i'd appreciate if you did at least the ones listed or something :) P.S. I promise i'll do some editing on your wiki soon after everything's like calmed down.
Lol, I always spell it wrong. :P haha, well you can't expect perfect spelling for a word like that :P Haha. I'm using that song in S2, that's probably why its in my head.
Aww, sounds quite sad. At least she lived to 80, which I think isn't a bad age to pass away at. I would be happy to die at that age. Of course, I'm hoping that technology is even better by the time I'm 80 comes around, as that way I might live even a tid bit longer somehow. And I'd also prefer to pass away in my sleep, rather than being murdered (which is a bit extreme I guess), or having some sort of condition that's painful and seeks medical/hospital attention.
That's good to know :)
Ooh, sounds great. I've always loved Unique and Mercedes, and they're perfect for a diva week. I'm really excited to see how they'll be incorporated into the episode, considering they live in a different part of the country and really have nothing to do with SD. I'm really excited to see how they'll be fitted in. :)
Hahaha, that's true :) I know, i was actually using it in an earlier episode but i cut it out. Don't you think it would be the perfect Mary Lou and Jessica song? As witnessed in the last ep, they have a small background friendship akin to Tina and Britt in S2. They'll share scenes in the later eps.
No, it's not. She wasn't 80, i just can't remember the definite age, i'm never good at remembering ages and stuff like that. I'm hoping technology will be better for that aspect but as weird as it sounds, i don't want technology to advance as people will never know where to stop. Eeek, being murdered would be horrible unless it was like "Scream" and i was the survivor ...just kidding (Sorry, i watched that film lastnight on Comedy Central)
It's going to be a great idea i think. Well, Unique will have a friendship with one of the guys and she'll be featured in some songs. You'll see...but i can say, in my fic timeline...Wade's parents were concerned and took him out of Mckinley (Straight after the Rizzo debacle) and now reside close to Portland.. and he's in a show choir there.
Really? That's really funny. It would actually fit really well as a Mary Lou/Jessica duet, you should use it in the future. :)
Oh okay then. I think that if immortality existed, the world would be much more difficult to control. And there'd be an awful lot more people on the planet, haha. :P Lol, Scream... :P
Well you can't have her come on the show and not sing. Just like when April guest starred in my fic,I had to make her sing somewhere. :P But I love that idea, I can actually see that working.
Btw, I've officially finished Everybody's Changing, but I'm not posting until mid May, as I need some time to get ahead with my episodes (Basically, I'm hoping that by the time I've posted Everybody's Changing, the second episode will have been finished. And then when I post episode two, I will have finished episode three, and so on and so on, if that makes any sense.)
I think i will use it in the future...they do actually have a duet coming up and their little background friendship is explored :)
I'd hate immortality or being like a vampire or something, i know people would like to live forever but i've grow tired of because you'd see loads of lifetimes and cycles of world history.. with country leader and wars and you'd be the only one who realises they're repeating history and making a grave mistake. But if i was immortal, i'd want to be a like 20 yrs old. Plus, if we were all immortal..the earth would overpopulated.
I know, it's gonna be really fun. It also opens up a few doors and establishes the link betweeen the fic and Glee. There will be some phonecalls from Marley too but it won't be too much or anything because at the end of the day, the fic is about Star Dominion.
Yay, i can't wait to read it but i understand, i'd rather you held it off for a bit though as i wouldn't be able to find time to read it and that would be a shame. I've got my interview later for my college course (I'm gonna take a scene of my fan-fiction and a picture i did on photoshop/ picmonkey to compliment it), a funeral and my week- holiday.
Yeah, that's a good point. Things would become boring eventually. And yeah, the world would be extremely overpopulated. Lol. But of course I doubt immortality will ever exist outside of fictional stories, lol. :P If I was immortal, I'd want to be the age that life was the easiest/most interesting. Of course, I don't really know when that time is right now because obviously I haven't experienced all ages of my life yet, haha.
That's a great way of doing it. The only thing I worry about with my fic is that some day Harmony or Jesse will be brought back on Glee, and something will pop up that practically messes up the entire continuity of my fic that I have spent a whole season building up. Like, if Lindsay returns to Glee, and they give Harmony a surname, how would I incorporate that into my fic? And even though at the moment, I'm not really a fan of Marley, it'll be interesting to see what she's talking to Unique about on the call.
Sounds like you've got a busy week. Two more days and I have school holidays! Yay! :) I need a break.
OMG I love the spoilers. I commented on the page. :)
Hahaha :) I think everybody "wantz" some more Mary Lou. I wonder what she could have heard from Walker, Parrish and Marc talking in the choir room when she was hiding in one of the closets, it would be bad if her "Spongebob" ring- tone went off :P The next episodes will be very focused on the recurring characters. Like Ep 7 is a big Dana episode, the character has gotten really prominent as of lately.
Ep 10 will be a very big Mary Lou episode. Ep 12 will be a big Jessica, Dana, Arrow and Mary Lou episode.
Yeah, that sounds quite interesting with what you said. Plus, if immortality was real, i don't think it would feel the same if you read books on it.
I don't know, just try to keep the two things seperate...i mean you don't have to follow Glee's timeline. It's your fan-fiction, establish your own or change the outcome of events that have happened in the series, when a character mentions it or something.
I'm not a fan of Marley either, though it's sad as i loved her in TNR. I just think they should have weaved the newbies in slowly than putting them senselessly down our throats. It really should have been focused on the seniors. Season 3 was a great season, not the best but most of it was focused on the seniors and imagine, how great S4 would have been if it was like that. I thought Glee did wrong by making all the seniors in S3, the more popular or aguably interesting ones, making the S4 seniors pale in comparision but if they actually shown us their futures and didn't tell, i think it would have been more level.
I have. Yay for you :) School holidays aren't till mid- May for us...oops, you meant the weekend, didn't you?
I won't be alone at 27th - 4th of May...that's when i'm away.
And yes, it is an original song that you see. Recently, i wrote it and fits Devonne really well and it's perfect for the scene it's in :)
Haha, yeah. I was sort of thinking the same thing. Yeah, sometimes I forget who's main and who's recurring because some of the mains get the same as some of the recurrings. I'm not saying it's a bad thing though, I actually like the way it is.
Btw, completely random question, but since CJ is a main character, will we be seeing very much more of him soon, because I sort of feel like he's been a bit neglected lately, although I have a feeling that that was the aim of his intro, to spread his character out a bit.
That's true. Practically the whole Harry Potter series wouldn't be as interesting, lol. Because the last one focuses heavily on Voldemort's immortality with the Horcruxes.
I guess I shouldn't worry so much about my fic having continuity errors between the actual Glee. Its just that I'm one of those people who likes both the shows to have some sort of continuity, and even if there's something that has never been mentioned on the show or whatever, you can explain why this happened in your fic, and it fits in somewhere in the timeline.
Marley was probably my number one favorite new character at the beginning, but by shoving her and Jake down our throats, I'm sick of those characters. It's a shame though, because the two have great voices and I thought they had great potential. I think they just focused on their relationship too heavily and too much, and too quickly as well. Like, even Finchel seemed to have been worked into the story better than Jarley. Now I like Kitty the most out of the newbies, because I feel as if her character could go so far if they made her apologize to Marley for changing the size of her dress. I can just see something really big coming for Kitty, or maybe I'm just hoping for something big, but it's never actually coming.
And yeah, they should have focused a lot more on the S4 seniors. Like, what the hell, we know nothing about their plans for S5. Even Mike got a story about his future... I mean, come on Glee, where's the respect for the seniors - the characters that have actually been on the show the longest and are probably the most interesting ones? And yeah, I thought they would have kept Rachel, Kurt, Santana and Finn on for longer, because they're practically the most "favourited" characters. I understand Puck and Mike because the writers didn't really know what else to write for them, but the others I thought they would have liked on the show for the longest. Lol :P
No, not the weekend. I mean like actual school holidays (they go for 2 weeks then its back to school. )
Yay, cant wait for the original song. The song title sounds great itself. :)
Status doesn't really matter to me...it's just so all the characters aren't regular. Dana and Jessica were originally regulars anyway and i put them as recurring as then people wouldn't expect more than a mini- story or something, wheras if they're regulars...you know they'll have stories but it just might not be yet.
Yes, CJ will be appearing soon. Because the season has been extended, the storyline with Courtney, Spencer and CJ has extended so he'll be appearing much more in the latter half of S1...and yes, that was my intention,. He was actually meant to have a scene with Spencer in the last episode gone...but i wanted to release the episode so it got cut...but it is an important scene so it'll happen in an episode later on :)
Lol. I didn't like that story in HP.
I kinda annoys me though have Brittana and Klaine was never meant to happen in the first place but their fans still find stuff to bitch about when they don't get their own way. I mean, Heather Morris was only on Glee to choregraph Single Ladies but they wanted her as an extra next to Quinn and Santana. And Kurt was originally an indian boy named Raj and when Kurt did become a character, he was meant to be with Sam. *Wow, it would have been so much better*
It just annoys me so much how Finchel, Brittana and Klaine fans think they're the only ones who can bitch about something and they're the only ones who are allowed to. I mean, i know the show revolves around them in a fashion but c'mon, Tike or Tartie fans like me...have that right more than them...because we get zilch majority of the time.
Oh. My bad.
Thanks :) Also thanks for the banner, i never realized how great it would turn out.
I posted this announement on my wiki, there's been a change of plans. Devonne will now not sing the original song, but Ignorance by Paramore. The original song will be featured later on in the season, along with one i wrote lastnight. The place for the song just doesn't feel appropriate.
Yeah, same with me. I've had to make some adjustments with characters' statuses in season two, as initially for the new season I upgraded some previously recurring characters up to regular characters. But now I've decided I've got too many mains and so I've re-demoted them again (Btw, I'm talking about Simon and Nick, I've decided against upgrading them). Btw, about this topic, on the main page of this wiki, do you think I should add the recurring characters from the show that can be considered "main" and are in the glee club, for example, Simon, Margret, etc., characters that are practically considered "main" even though they are recurring?
I'm glad to hear that. CJ was one of my favourite characters when he was introduced, and I still reckon he has great potential as a character. Btw, there will be a new character introduced in episode 1, who will be sort of like a CJ/Jacob Ben Israel character in terms of her being involved in the school news team, writing and filming gossip-filled stories. Her name will be Tracy. And yay for the extended season, I'm actually really excited for it being extended. :)
I actually did like that story in HP, I thought it was one of the most "thought out" stories, in terms of it being quite complex. But I understand that everybody has different opinions and I don't expect you to agree with me simply because my opinion is different to yours.
I know, right! People who are supposedly fans of Glee seem to bitch so much about the couples and always expect the most scenes from their couple. Well let's face it, despite how much I hate the couple, we all know that Finchel is obviously the "protagonist couple" for the show. Like, why waste four seasons trying to develop a relationship, using up so many great duets for a couple that won't last? It's obvious that they are going to be endgame, because they've taken up the show so much that it'd be a really big waste to have Rachel with someone other than Finn. This whole Brochel story has made me actually want Finchel together, somehow. Honestly, I don't ship Klaine and Brittana as much as I did earlier on, because I guess all the bitching from their major fans has put me off a bit.
And Tike/Tartie fans get barely anything. I understand that Tartie didn't last long and there was more than likely nothing more going to happen than their little relationship in the first season, but still give the fans something, just as the writers always try and give Klaine and Brittana now. And I'm still mad at the writers for writing Tike out so quickly in the fourth season, I mean, come on Glee!! At least give us a proper scene to give good closure or something! It just seems like the writers don't know what to do with Tina now, like the way they've made her all snarky this season, it's like they have nothing to write for her.
Haha, is the banner that good. I thought it was pretty mediocre.
I understand, I'm not going to be mad or anything (or maybe I am made for making me wait even longer for the original song......................... lol, just kidding). I actually love Paramore as an artist. She's had heaps of great songs. I'm using definitely one of her songs in S2.
No offence but i don't really like Nick...but that's only at the moment so it could change. But i wouldn't have complained if he was regular or recurring but i think you made a wise decision.
Yes, I think you should do a part for all recurring characters.
That's nice to hear. CJ is one of my favourite characters because he's so mysterious and seems to have no filter. He will appear more but this season, his storyline is tied to Courtney and Spencer wheras if i do a S2, he'd probably be more of what he is now.
That sounds really good but she will be different from CJ, won't she?
Me too. At first, i was worried that you've get bored about still being on the first season for so long but with everything recently, i've learnt i work at rates and i should do the episodes on my own accord and time and it doesn't matter if they take ages to be released because it counts they're getting released in the first place. But the extended episodes are really ambitious, i think they'll be some of my best episodes actually...there's some sad, funny, drama filled, angsy episodes.
There's an episode i'm planning later on...where Mary Lou and Marc assign the group with performing theme songs from TV shows...and two characters argue with each other because their birthdays fall on the same day. Guess who?
It beats me. I just think Brittana and Klaine fans espescially should stop bitching when they've got more than they could have hoped for since Brittana was just a background thing in S1.
When i read the spoilers for the Brody episodes, i thought typical Glee makes this guy seem perfect and now he's going to be the bad guy who doesn't feel apologetic or shame because his actions...but when i watched the episodes, a part of me actually felt sorry and understanding for him...so Glee's attempts kinda failed to make Finchel, the be all and end all to me.
I wish they did more for Tike. I mean it was stupid to break them up in the first place if they're not going to get any substantial follow-up.
No, it's good. One of my favs.
Yeah, don't be mad. Be glad, Paramore would have probably never been featured if one of my readers suggested it...and i realised, how well the song fits the episode.
Heart Attack's going to be used in my fan-fic but in a mash- up with "Give Your Heart A Break". It's going to be sung by two girls.
Sorry i have to rant. You know what i really hate about the Glee wiki? How people post goodbye blogs to get attention or sympathy because they really, don't have the intention of leaving. It just annoys me. And when people feel underappreciated or outcast and they're like the admins with all the popularity on the site...it just annoys me how GW says they're so accepting but most of the time, they don't include anyone or welcome anyone who's not in their "inner circle".
I have to admit too that Nick doesn't have the most personality as a character just yet. But his relationship with Amanda starts a storyline about halfway through S2. Btw, just like how Andy is pretty characterless, he has a big scene in the first ep with June.
Okay. But I probably will just include like the main ones.
That's probably why I love CJ too. He just has that sort of mysterious demeanour you were talking about, that makes him seem really interesting. And having Abraham as the portrayer helps with that sort of feel.
Of course Tracy will be different to CJ. Initially when I thought of her, she was going to be a very shy, independant and introverted person, but her role changed so that her introduction fitted better with the story. Now she's going to be extremely energetic and lively, sort of like Jacob Ben Israel. It's really hard to explain who she is at the moment considering I've only written one scene for her so far, but the more you read of her throughout the season, the more you'll get to know who she is.
I really don't think having an extended season will make people bored as you said. Personally, whether you'd be moving onto a second season, or still on the first, I still see them as new episodes. I love the sound of those episodes. Any episodes that have a mix of emotions and a balance between comedy and drama are my favourites.
I honestly have no clue who's birthdays fall on the same day. Kitty and Dana? Marc and Mary Lou? Walker and Beth?
But the idea of covering songs from TV shows sounds great. For some reason I love music from films/shows, the songs are usually more depthful because they were written for a situation for a character.'
Exactly. Just in general, I find Brittana fans to be more whiny and bitchy about their couple that Klaine and Finchel fans (although I must admit that some Finchel and Klaine fans can still be shocking with their comments)
I don't know. Brody never really appealed to me. I'd prefer Rachel to be with anyone other than Brody or Finn, to be honest. The thing that kept me from wanting Rachel to be with Finn is the fact that Rachel slept with him. Because the scene at NYADA where Rachel admits she knows about Brody's secret made Rachel seem just as much in the wrong as Brody, because Brody knew that she slept with Finn at Mr Schue's wedding. They shouldn't have made Rachel sleep with Finn, it was stupid and it made Rachel look like she had done bad things just as much as Brody in the relationship. Just my opinion though.
I know. And it's not like Tina even had any sort of story to make up for no Tike story, lol. It's a waste to have Jenna turn up to work to do nothing. :P
I'm using one Paramore song as a duet in episode 15, between two girls. I can't wait to see which Paramore song you're using. I hope it's not the same one, haha.
Sounds great. Those two Demi songs go so well together when you think about.
I don't mind. He's just a character who doesn't catch my eye or attention but i think with the new eps, my opinion will change as i'm not open to change. Oooh, can't wait for this big scene.
Abraham is such the perfect person to play him.
I think lively and energetic sounds better. I'm excited to see Tracy and what her character will be.
None of them...you'll have to wait, i don't want to spoilt anything actually. (Sometimes i'm in moods where i want to spoil things and then i don't)
I don't like Brody but in a way, i sympathized with him and i think it was unintentional on the writer's part. I mean they probably did it to make Finn the hero...which i find stupid because if i learnt my ex- boyfriend creepily flew to NY and hit my current boyfriend/ cheater...i'd be furious even if i was growing off my current one. I hate how Rachel calls it honouring her. I think they only made Brody a bad-guy so they reunite Finchel in the end but them poor fans (sarcasm) have to wait now until S5 probably.
That's true. Honestly, i found the Tike and Brittana story near the time of Grease to be the most appealing stories.
Oooh :) I bet you're using their new song, i have a feeling...but i'm probs wrong. The song i'm using is: Ignorance. Sung by Aurora.
I know :) Originally, i was just going to use HA but i realized i could kill two birds with one stone and use it in a mash-up because it relates to two storylines later on.
P.S. There's 2 extra eps, talllying the season up to 22 eps in full.
Yeah, I can understand though how he doesn't catch your eye very much yet. Like, he's had a lot of scenes but nothing much major has happened to him. Also, there is a duet between Andy and another guy in the glee club, it'll be split between both of them singing, and there will be three versions released (the duet version used in the ep, as well as the two solo versions) just like Defying Gravity on Glee.
Abraham is the perfect person to play him.
In the beginning her role won't be very important at all, she's sort of just there because I needed her to be introduced early so that she can be used later on in the season for her big role.
Yeah, sometimes I'm like that too.
I agree so much. Flying over to NY and hitting him was so out of line, I can't believe Rachel stated he was "honouring" her, when really, he could have killed someone (okay, so that's quite stretched and exaggerated but he could have seriously hurt or injured Brody when you think about it). I just think the entire story with Brody messed up a few things. And what's going to happen to Brody now? Surely they'll show him every now and again at NYADA, so at least the entire story didn't seem like a waste. If the writers wanted Finchel to be together, then why didn't they simply just do that. We've had enough Finchel drama the last four seasons, most of us viewers are over Finchel and don't want more stories for them.
I loved the Brittana and Tike stories too, however, I'm really pissed off that they barely got anything compared to Finchel. To be honest, I even ship Wemma more than Finchel.
Ooh, I wonder why Aurora's singing Ignorance. And yes, the song that I'm using funnily enough is one of their newest songs.
Haha, yeah, that was a great move. Personally, I hate using songs glee has already covered when they're not in a mash-up. That's probably why I kind of dislike some eps at the start of my season.
Yay for even more eps! I think it's good there's extra eps because the way I see it, now your seasons kind of match up with Glee's, in terms of numbers (not that having a different amount of eps really changed much though).
Hey. So I've done both of them, but the one you wanted with the light blue background and purple slushie doesn't work very well, because you can't see the text properly. When I try white text, you can't see it properly on the blue background but it works great on the purple, but when I use black, it works great on the blue background but not the purple. I'll upload one example on your wiki just to show you, but I don't think it looks very good.
Hello :) You know what i think would be cool? If you released an album of the deleted and cut songs of S1...like Neon Tree's Animals, aswell as songs like "No Air" and stuff. I just think it would be quite cool to see what could have been...but of course, the songs you'd add to the tracklist...you could still use in future eps.
ANNOUNCEMENT: An extra 7 episodes have been added to S1, bringing it to 20 eps (Two-parters count as one ep) Also, i want to thank you for posting them suggestions on my wiki as the ideas WILL actually been used this season. I think expanding S1 though may be frustrating in the long run or be a drag, it gives some space of air between all the plotlines. Admittently, some of the episodes will be fillers but not filler - fillers.
The Idols week will be happening, in a different way from what you said though. It's going to be FUN.
P.S. You know how you said you were going to do them other slushie covers so i could compare which ones i want. Anyway, you can go ahead with that but can you re-do the purple/ blue one and change the song title from "Good For You/ Beside You" to "Good To You/ Beside You". I made a mistake.
I might think about that, I really like that idea, although I'm not sure whether there'll be enough songs, but now that you've said it, I might have a look at what songs I've ever cut and see how many songs would actually be going on the album, then I could decide whether I'd decideto make the album. But I love the idea and I might do it depending on whether there are enough songs. :)
I'm actually going to release some other albums this weekend. For example, there's going to be a Glee: The Music, The Unitards, The Show Choirs album, including songs that ever majorly involved a show choir other than The Unitards. Plus, there's a few extra songs that are going to be featured as bonus tracks.
I'm kinda happy though. I know what you mean about fillers. I always seemed to have "blank" episodes in S1, and so I always just hoped that the storylines from previous eps would be able to last a few extra episodes and flow onto the next "blank" ep. :P But in S2, I've planned so much that apart from episode 20, I have a complete season planned out.
Yay, I love the whole idea of IDOLS. I'm not really sure why though, I think I just love seeing what artists each member of SD like.
Yes, sure, I'll fix that for you. I thought it sounded a bit strange when i typed it, but then I thought i must have just been imagining the title beign wrong :P
I'll try & have the slushies posted by tonight. :)
Thanks for considering my idea than just like saying No completely.
Oooh, i love the sound of that album.
So you're happy it's extended? I did reveal to you that four regular characters will be leaving and though S1 may be a drag because it'll possibly take 2 years to finish (I hope not though) I think in retrospect, it'll help as i don't want the departure storylines to be rushed.
Tbh, i didn't think or recalls any of your episodes that i could classify as fillers. I love fillers usually but in Glee's case, i don't as the season is nearly ending and though, S5 probably picks up after Regionals and the Senior's dreams...they shouldn't have left it so late and instead of shoving Marley, Jake, Ryder, Kitty and Unique down our throats, it should have been a slow weave...kind of what i do with Melinda, CJ, Marc and Parrish.
It'll be good, you'll not be expecting the way i've done it. It's just going to be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
Thanks & Thanks.
Some episodes of S1 will have fewer songs as after ep 7, there's about 8 or 9 songs each episode...it's not intentional, but when you start thinking and writing...it just happens and you think i could do this and this and this.
But there's a really good episode i'm planning where SD plan to raise the money for the bustrip to Sectionals. It's a Beth, Dana, Marc and Mary Lou centric episode.
EDIT: It's actually kind of weird because i said some of the new eps would be fillers but looking at them, they're really not. They're character driven episodes and there's lights on all The Storm Starlets matters..like who's they're director and things. Plus...something is coming up for Freya.
Firstly, I apologize for not posting my review earlier. I haven't had time to get onto any wikis lately, including my own and yours. And then I couldn't find much time to finish typing the review for you. But it's posted now, I hope it's alright. (Btw, the reason I've been busy is because I've got four tests next week, and two assignments due. I've had heaps of work to do for school lately because it's the end of the term, and most subjects but an end of term topic test at the end of the term on basically everything we've done since our last test. But the holidays will be coming in one week. yay!! :D)
That's alright. I really like the idea. I will definitely use it. It may take another week until I have created and posted it on the wiki.
Haha. There's actually quite a few songs that have been sung by rival choirs. You don't really realize until you list them all. Lol. :P
I am happy it's extended. Either way, I would have been fine, because hey, a new episode's a new episode, whether or not it's in the first season or the second. Just a question though, I don't think you've mentioned this yet, but will the second season still be the second semester of the year, or will it now be changed to the next year? Just curious.
Personally, the one episode to me that seemed a lot like a filler was Christmas Time is Here. It may not have come across as a filler episode, but for me, as a writer, it was actually planned sort of as a filler, since the main aim of including that episode was just so I could use Christmas songs and have a Christmas album. But otherwise speaking, it was initially planned as a filler.
I can't wait for idols week. I'm sure it will be amazing. :)
I know what you mean. My first season started with about six songs each ep, then some episodes ended up having around 10 songs! That's probably why there were so many songs used in S1. I'm trying to fix this problem for S2, but I'm not sure I'm doing a very good job so far.
Sounds great. I love money-raising episodes for a competition. I've not really done any of them for my fic, I might do it for a competition in S2. It won't be a major plot, just a side thing to make it seem realistic financially for the club.
Yay! I kinda missed them in episode six, so whenever there's some spotlight on them, I'm happy. :)
