Very nice pictures you have there. I agree with you on those pictures. :D

I need advice. I've had it in my head to redo GB2, make it E/J centric. I know people groan at these things. I feel dumb for wanting to do it, but I feel like I have it all worked out to make since. You think it's worth the effort?

I for one would be interested in it. I actually like GB2, for all of its problems--but if you could do a version that fixed the #1 problem with it, that would be worth seeing.

I kinda figured you were on board, lol. It wouldn't fit the timeline, but it would be a fun read for ya. Do you think people would run me off other than here?

I want to do a format where the movie as written is real and E/J are explaining how it really happened to the EGB, why it was written with wrong info, in the words of law and order, events and names were changed to protect the innocent...

I think this sounds interesting. Since I am one of those people who could not fully enjoy their GB2-Experience because of that huge drop of bitterness that was Janine and Louis hooking up, I would love an approach that explains/fixes this. And I like the idea of Egon and Janine telling their side oft he story.

Pfff! Let them groan. It is your story. I have seen a lot of fanfiction that messes up the canon or even ignores important parts of it completely. You are just taking on a huge contradiction IN the canon.

This is a little bit embarrasing for me. But I am not sure what exactly the English term „run me off“ means. Does that mean that you are afraid to be kicked out of a fanfiction forum?
If that is what you mean: Why should they? Just because they do not like your story? That would be one weird reason, wouldn’t it.
You are obviously not planning on writing down eyerything that happened in the movie, only making a few changes when it comes to Janine, Egon and Louis. So I do not see a problem.

I think you should do it. For your sake because I think a story that is in your head will drive you crazy if you do not let it out. ;)
And for the selfish reason that this story sounds very interesting to me. :D

Sandra, "run me off" the way I meant it is more like bullying and teasing to the point you leave in humiliation. It has happened to me before, when I wrote a story about Zedikiah (Egon's ancestor from Egon's Dragon), the board totally ridiculed me, said I shouldn't post it there because it wasn't directly RGB. It actually was a cute story, I didn't even finish though cause of that.

Where was this? I admit for a second I thought "Did we do that?" but I looked back at this thread and only saw positive feedback. I know some people out there can be dicks (Imagine if you'd said "I'm doing a reboot with an all-female team") but I try not to be that way here. Won't promise I always succeed, granted...

No Fritz, it wasn't here, duh. :P

It was on an email group. I don't go there anymore. Like a yahoo group I think. I don't even remember. I quit it soon after all that. I don't have time for unsupportive people. However I am wary of it happening again, because the GB community is so interwoven, if I keep having to leave groups, I soon wouldn't have any left.

I trust you guys, I'm not worried about here at all. You guys are great. That's why I'm asking you guys for advice. :D

Wow! That might not be the meanest thing I’ve ever heard,but it makes the Top10. I am really sorry that you had to experience this. I do not think that your current story idea has the potential to cause such behavior - but then again NO story idea should cause such behavior and still it happened to you. No internet without idiots I guess. ;)
Anyway, I still think you should not let that keep you from writing. It is a RGB related story because EGB is RGB related and E/J is a very common ship so I do not think that anyone could take offense. A forum that chases you away because of it isn’t worth your time anyway!

Its good to write! EGB banter coming really easily, and so much fun to hear their voices! (Yes, writers hear voices in their heads.) :lol:
