Back to the top!

whenever i see a bloodraven with 2 eyes on my dash i’m like

really? really? that’s the best u could do?

it makes me so mad for unknown reasons

sabotensan replied to your post “so as a paper in this script-writing course i have to hand in 5-6…”

you can also add sharks to idea A and have an epic showdown between the zombie octopus and a ghost shark (who will become their companion through power of friendship) oh and add mermaids

come on a zombie octopus AND a ghost shark?? now that’s just unrealistic.

naw the vampire shark gang (snapping. always snapping with their fins when they’re not drinking blood. singing cheesy musical songs) is gonna be the main antagonist in season 2.

and then in season 3 they’ll find a mermaid and take her in and the beautiful relationship between the captain and her first mate we’ve come to love the last 2 seasons is gonna be TESTED bc that mermaid is just too cute. v dramatic. while zombie octopus loses his limbs one after the other. (zombie octopus is going to be the only male main character i’m thinking.)

but the main arc in s3 will be that they discover that the norwegian court is being infiltrated by An Evil Force (maybe aliens). pirate polly is faced with the difficult decision: should she stay with her pirate crew or go aid the father she never truly knew? (a southern-danish aka german diplomat. it’s a world where there’s no british empire but a norwegian empire bc scandinavia is the only region that has learnt to tame zombie monsters.) the family she chose or the family she was born into????

(ofc she chooses her crew. nurture over nature!!!! but that decision has the consequence that all hell breaks loose in the norwegian empire and even in thr caribbean they’re affected and they decide, together with all the other pirate crew, to fight against the norwegian empire/aliens. that battle spans season 4 and culminates in season 5 with a huge showdown.

polly dies and Wuffles, her octopus, dies and practically every1 else dies. it’s a comedy right. but they world is saved. the world…. is saved)

oops i started rambling about Pirate Polly’s World sorry

so as a paper in this script-writing course i have to hand in 5-6 pages of a concept for a tv show. i was thinking either

a. a historical comedy: Pirate Polly & the giant zombie octopus she tames & her queer crewmates having adventures

b. a costume drama: sibling incest at a vaguely french, vaguely 17th century court. they’re blond and arrogant and ok i just wanna write cersei/jaime fanfic

c. a cartoon: Romeo&Juliet but with sharks!!!!!!

WHO WROTE WHAT BIT?
Ah. Another tricky one. As the official Keeper of the One True Copy, Terry physically wrote more of Draft 1 than Neil. But if 2,000 words are written down after a lot of excited shouting, it’s a moot point whose words they are. And, in any case, as a matter of honor both of them rewrote and footnoted the other guy’s stuff, and both can write passably in the other guy’s style. The Agnes Nutter scenes and the kids mostly originated with Terry, the Four Horsemen and anything with maggots started with Neil. Neil had the most influence on the opening, Terry on the ending. Apart from that, they just shouted excitedly a lot.

The point they both realised the text had wandered into its own world was in the basement of the old Gollancz books, where they’d got together to proofread the final copy, and Neil congratulated Terry on a line that Terry knew he hadn’t written, and Neil was certain that he hadn’t written either. They both privately suspect that at some point the book had started to generate text on its own, but neither of them will actually admit this publicly for fear of being thought odd.

“When someone asks ‘what’s the use of philosophy?’ the reply must be aggressive, since the question tries to be ironic and caustic. Philosophy does not serve the State or the Church, who have other concerns. It serves no established power. The use of philosophy is to sadden. A philosophy that saddens no one, that annoys no one, is not philosophy. It is useful for harming stupidity, for turning stupidity into something shameful. Is there any discipline apart from philosophy that sets out to criticise all mystification, whatever their source and aim, to expose all the fictions without which reactive forces would not prevail?…Finally, turning thought into something aggressive, active and affirmative. Creating free men, that is to say men who do not confuse the aims of culture with the benefit of the State, morality or religion….Who has an interest in all this but philosophy? Philosophy is at its most positive as a critique, as an enterprise of demystification.”

@bratkartoffel: Fr. Krau th macht das, und sie hat ihre Dvds zuhause vergessen und jetzt ist sie ueber ihren uni-internetzugang auf watchseries.lt gegangen :”D ohne adblock. iconic.

So my current uni course about script writing:
We spent the last 7 hrs talking about popular tv shows and movies (a lot of game of thrones, true detective, breaking bad) and now we’re about to watch the first episode of breaking bad via an illegal streaming site.
