Vivian: Jesus is coming back!

Dooley's mother: Life is white and I am black, Jesus and his lawyer are doming back. Novacaine for the soul...before I sputter out! (song lyrics again).

Uri: I want a long term romatic relationship, with someone who likes conformity and dislikes chaos. (Where do we begin with that one?!)

I bet it could happen. Of course, anything could happen given the right circumstances. Circumstances for that:

Theo, trying to get in good with Jordan, makes a bet with Uri that she can't sustain such a relationship for more than two months. Uri is starting to feel somewhat pocket-pinched. I don't think she's very thrifty. I wonder what her needs are. How much energy do you think floating around all day burns? She obviously finds it more comfortable to sit in a collander while drawing blueprints than to float or just sit on the kitchen counter. I imagine that has something to do with evaporation. Probably keeping up rent on an apartment that she started renting when she'd just gotten back from building the bridge, had half a dozen more projects lined up, and was feeling quite flush and set for the rest of her life.

Amelia: Get back here, you ******* ****!

I estimate you will meet her in about twelve strips.

Circumstances in which each might happen:

Playing a mind game. Maybe someone talked her into watching a movie to relax, and she got reality and fiction confused.

Right before a scene cut.

He lost yesterday. Big time. Wait, no, he'd probably still play.

Right before committing suicide. I'm a bit violent today, no?

Yes but they'll never say it in THE STRIP!

Kamali: Please kiss me in public Glenn. I get a rush out of public displays of affection.

Uri or Glenn (When Blanca is near): I see dead people!

What's mosh?

Uri: What's a cantilevered bridge?

Nurse: Jordan, your Grandmother is in the hospital again.
Jordan: I think I'll just let her sit and rot for a few days until I can find time.
Nurse: That's all right, she's not asking for anything or making any trouble. It's a pleasure to have her.

Odeda: Meow. Meow. Meow. Meow. Meow. Meow. Meow. Meow . . . (Guess what Remi's up to.)

Moshing is a form of dance also caled "slam dancing" where people literally slam into each other, trying to push the other one out of a circle or area known as a "mosh pit"

ANDREI: (lifting a hesitant finger) Um, Jordan . . .
JORDAN: More depressed.

(At least, she won't say it yet.

LOL.

REMI: I am perfectly content on this side of the door, and will let you sleep until you're ready to get up rather than knock all night and keep your house mates up.

QUIGLEY: Peace on Earth, good will to man.

AMELIA: No.

EMU: It's high time I threw in a Simpsons reference.

Emu: I've changed my mind about the magic, and will now base everything on real life.

Could you give me some examples from the same medium I'm working in? I could suggest some comics if you don't want to find your own.

Does the current count? I got into a little debate with my sister over it (Wednesday's cat), and decided to put some examples of stuff I do just for fun, because she doesn't understand me at all.

Oh, okay. Hmm. This might be difficult. Well, are you up for a lot of reading? I'll give you three. I'll try for different stuff.

Here's one that might be pretty close to mine: semi-realistic modern-day with a strong flavoring of fantasy, sci-fi, and religion, and with a large following (take a look at their forums): http://crfh.net/

And . . . I suppose the main differences in these next two are future, and past. But I like them, so you get them. Humor's different, story style's different. I think "Freefall" might be closer to what I aspire to, except that I constatnly flinch from completely messing up anyone's life. I've got to get over that. (I am their god. I play with their lives for my amusement. They have no more meaning to me than a hill of ants. They are not my children. I don't believe it for a second.) (So, what's the worst thing that can happen to any of them right now? How about just the top six or seven?: Uri: sentenced to death. Glenn: sees Uri die on television, then captured for trial. Jordan: Sees them both die. TG: repudiated by sole remaining daughter and grandchild. Then sent back to insane asylum. [But none of this actually happens. But it has to be so close to it that they're all aware of the possibility, and they don't get completely out of it until something worse happens.]Vivian: California declares war on the Blairs. Or Bains. Or whatever their name is. Florence: in danger of dying. But neither of those two is really brought up as a possibility. So, current situation, wost case scenario: everything gets messed up, and they weren't really needed. Then I set up the others as a scenario.)

Sorry, I got caught up. Except it was probably good notions, so I need comments. Anyway:

http://freefall.purrsia.com/
http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/cgi-bin/gg...i?date=20050221

In terms of time it will take you to work through the archives, I recommend you go third, second, first. None of them are complete. But there are several complete storylines.
