Not long ago, [personal profile] melannen wrote a terrific post, "101 Asexy Sex Scenes." This involved creating an imaginary fandom for an apocryphal show. Much discussion ensued about what the characters, the show, and the fandom might be like. So then I got to thinking that the one form of writing I've never done much with is script writing, and maybe it would be fun to play around with that. I fiddled around with ideas, character thumbnails, episode summaries, and fannish trivia. And then I scripted a few of the advance advertisements for the show. This is the first one...


"Alex and Bailey in the Closet"

[A faint humming sound provides a background to the dialog. No scenery is visible, just a black screen with the voices of Alex and Bailey.]

Alex: "It's awfully dark in here."

Bailey: "Now don't you start that again."

Alex: "But it is."

Bailey: "That's because you accidentally locked us in a closet, genius."

Alex: "Well, there's an auxiliary fuse box for the superconductor in here and I needed just a little more power --"

Bailey: "Alex. You do theories and software. I do practicalities and hardware. This is a crucial distinction."

Alex: "-- and now we're running late for the first big experiment."

Bailey: "You're the brains of this outfit. I'm sure you'll think of something."

Alex: "Yeah, if I can just fit this penny in here--"

[A loud POP goes off. The faint humming sound in the background fades away with a pathetic little wheeze.]

Alex: "Oops."

Bailey: "Any other bright ideas?"

Alex: "We could stay here and cuddle until someone comes to find us?"

How the mismanagement of supplying the Continental Army almost lost the baby!American Republic their war for independence. Because without supplies, there is no Army, and with no Army, there couldn't be a Revolution.
