*has a flashback from Grease: "Who knows? Among you, there may be a future Eleanor Roosevelt, or a Rosemary Clooney. And among you young men, there may be a Joe DiMaggio, a President Eisenhower, or even a Vice-President Nixon."*
*snorts* Ok, back on topic: I started thinking, what if this new Will Ferrell movie was, well, real? Granted, that would imply that Will Ferrell didn't suck, but what if? How would/do our characters feel? What would/do they think? We've all seen versions of this idea, but most of them (Scribe's being the main exception that comes to mind here) are either not written seriously (some of Colleen's B/K stuff comes to mind here), or are--to be honest--written very badly.
So, here's a challenge: I want to see a "realistic" look at a what-if situation: what if one of your characters (pick any one, but bonus points for it being a character in one of my fandoms) woke up one day and had a voice narrating his (or her) his movements, thoughts, everything? And what if this character somehow figured out (I don't care how; I haven't seen the movie yet) that this voice was a) a writer, and b) going to kill him?
Don't worry, I won't be surprised if no one takes up this challenge, but in case anyone does...have fun! And let me know where it finally ends up! :-)
Barrie, who knows she was going to say something else, but doesn't remember what, having gotten off-track when she had the Grease flashback....
Edited (at 12:57am) to add that I am a damned stubborn bitch: I couldn't remember the name of the music I was playing (I have it listed as "Instrumental surf"), so I just spent the last three-quarters of an hour randomly searching Amazon until I found a recording of it, so I'd know what it was actually called!
