A show of darkness with a lot of heart, plenty of chuckles made both of metaphors and bad puns. As Dark Shadows lifted story lines from a zillion old books of the Gothic variety, what would it be like if they shared time with the current classics? And what if these newer characters could help them lift all the curses? (Contains intros delving into the writing process as well as information and commentary about the various programs and key players.)
Essentially a condensed Re-write from a particular point, to tie up loose ends and pair up everyone. Positive feedback, including laughter, can be sent to xoiscythe (at) hotmail.com (Send a message for the info to which episodes apply to the different characters if you only want those specific bits. It has gotten rather wildly Multi-fandom. Just leave a comment to the email address listed asking for which you'd like.)
So far the fandoms are: Dark Shadows, The Kids in The Hall, Clue (Wadsworth), The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, The Addams Family, Bewitched, The Munsters, Psycho, and cameos with Slimer, Norman Bates, Dr. "Hawkeye" Pierce, and hopefully in the future a large role with Doctor Who.
Difficulty in celebrating Dark Shadows and The Pit… As well as communication technology going bad. Appreciating Helena Clara Bouchet for being a non-canon AND canon romance fan. (Seriously!)
The perils with audience members attempting to be “critics”. Troubling responses from those *only* talking about what they *think* that ‘People’ think. (I’d much rather know what *you* think!)
Explaining all this to pen pals. Work on Pit episodes recently. Notes to those who always say “Change it!” with loving kindness to DS cast members.
Podcasts about the internet. (What was The Web like in 1999?) Discussing alterations in people’s behaviour with pen friends. Coming to terms with what Barnabas and Josette/Maggie fans have had to deal with for many years.
What I’ve been doing while utterly “wiped-out” including watching tons of Marx Brothers movies. Going through double overplays between our two centuries: 20th and 21st. (TV/youtube, mobile phones/telephones.)
If nothing else? I have finally done what I set out to do: Share the work to find the companionship. ^_^
