    You know...we should try and take some pictures of the locations in your trailers Idgie...then we could put it up on our eventual Web site...

    Just an idea... ;)

    heck, I think it'd be fun to actually shoot some of it when we get bored after Ep II has run its course in theatres!

    Just as long as it's not Jar Jar - remember my mom & I get to be stuck in your car w/ it, Mr."I drive like Anakin." You should make a cameo though since you ARE the creator. ;)

    Hey, I've Adobe AfterEffects and Premiere on my computer...i'm sure we could make a killer movie. We could use the traditional Star Wars wipes that George is so fond of, to go from one scene to the next...

    "From the beginning they were hopelessly outnumbered by the forums held in thrall by the bashers and fanboys.In those first dark days,it seemed certain the bright flame of resistance would be extinguished before it could cast the light of new truth across an internet of oppressed and beaten peoples..."

    `The Journal of the Wheels'

    jedi_blynnj:`...try rebooting it.'

    Idgie:`A communications disruption can mean only one thing...'

    MiraxTHorn:`Uh...that we won't be able to communicate?'

    Idgie:`Exactly!'

    MiraxTHorn:(aside to camera)`Thank you,Captain Brilliant'


    (Interior-Steak and Shake)

    royalguard96:`This FanForce is weak and crumbling;rotting away from within.Democracy has failed;it is time to establish a new order!'

    TheHuntressDiana`...and like so many new orders throughout history,this one will also begin at a Steak and Shake restaurant.'

    (Interior-MotorCityCon)

    ScoobyWanKenobi:`...scalping toys,heh...collecting for profit,heh...damaged packaging,heh...a collector craves not these things.'


    (Interior-Idgie's car)

    SwordChick:`Why were you banned,Idgie?Was it because you were clumsy?'

    Idgie:`Nah,it was because I kept referring to the Thrawn Trilogy as the Yawn Trilogy and the EU as the `Pee-EU-sah'.Funny thing was,I only had one post when they booted me out.Go figure.'


    (Interior-Indianapolis Convention Center,outside the VIP lounge)

    Head of Security:`Where was that group going?'

    Guard:`One of the FanForce groups,sir.Detroit, think.They were going to the VIP Lounge'

    Head of Security:`Did they have Fan Club lanyards?'

    Guard:`They were older lanyards,but they checked out.Shall I hold them?'

    Head of Security:`No,leave them to me.I shall deal with them myself.'

    After carefully looking around,royalguard96 enters and begins to make his way towards the pedastal.The floor of the room is made up of alternating blue and white tiles,and royalguard96 is careful to step only on the white tiles.

    Lol, another good job Idgie :) I loved the Indiana Jones stuff! I agree w/ jedi_blynnj; this would be alot of fun if we revised some of this & shot it (heck, skip the revising - it's all good).

    P.S. An another note, I'd just like to state that I am now 17 ..... and I'm getting a car. :D [face_devil] :cool:

    (Fade in)

    (Exterior.Indianapolis;a near empty parking lot-night.Low,tense single note melody is heard as two people,FearandBullets and Idgie approach a parked car.)

    FearandBullets:'You're right on schedule.We've been waiting for this package,and now we can finally begin our work.I trust that you've taken good care of our package.'

    Idgie:'Of course.All of the instructions were followed,to the letter.I stand to benefit from all of this too,you know.'

    (They approach the trunk of the car.Idgie unlocks the trunk.)

    FearandBullets:'This will be a day long remembered,it has seen...WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?!'

    (cut to a shot of the two people looking into the trunk.Kenny Rogers is tied up and gagged inside the trunk.)

    FearandBullets:(to Idgie)'YOU IDIOT!You were supposed to nab Kenny Baker,not Kenny Rogers!What the hell were you thinking?!This is great,just great!Not only are our plans on hold,indefinitely,I might add,but we're also stuck with having to figure out what to do with this guy.'

    Idgie:'Dude,I've never seen Kenny Baker in person,how the hell should I know one Kenny from another?'

    FearandBullets:'So what do we do with the Gambler here?'

    Idgie:'Well,like the man himself once said,you gotta know when to fold 'em...'

    (Idgie closes the trunk)

    Idgie:'...and know when...'

    FearandBullets and Idgie:(in unison)'...TO RUN!'

    (cut to an overhead shot of the two running from the parking lot)

    (Exterior-Indianapolis-Daytime.A quiet,deserted,city street;just before sunset.Kenny Baker walks slowly along the street.He hears something behind him and turns,seeing nothing,he walks ahead,a bit more cautiously this time)

    (Same exterior,just ahead and around the corner,ScoobyWanKenobi and TheHuntressDiana wait patiently.They are both dressed as Jawas.ScoobyWanKenobi has a small,black Taser gun.Just as Kenny Baker gets near the corner,ScoobyWanKenobi jumps out and blasts him with the Taser.The blue electric charge quickly stuns the actor.ScoobyWanKenobi puts the gun back in his belt and motions toward the other side of the street.Several other people,also dressed as Jawas come out of their hiding places.They pick Kenny Baker) up,and carry him on their shoulders towards a rusted out brown van parked in the back alley)

    (cut to the interior of the van.A group of people stand around Kenny Baker,who sits in a chair with his hands and feet tied)

    TheHuntressDiana:'We're awfully sorry for all of this,Mr.Baker.Truth is,this is our FanForce's first kidnapping.Are the ropes too tight,?'

    Kenny Baker:'Beep,beep,whoooop,whooooo'

    (MiraxTHorn,who posesses an almost zen-like ability to understand the real R2-D2,acts as translator.Not surprisingly,she also speaks Bocce,it's like a second language to her)

    (same interior)

    royalguard96:'Is there a problem officer,was there an accident up ahead?'

    Police Officer:'Uh no,we're looking for a missing person.Say,just how old is that baby anyway?'

    (cut to the interior of the van.Kenny Baker sits in the middle of the backseat,wearing a baby's bonnet,and wrapped in a blanket)

    royalguard96:'Uh,'bout three or four years old...'

    Idgie:(from the back of the van)'He's up for sale if you want him!'

    (SwordChick elbows Idgie in the stomach)

    SwordChick:(quietly)'Shut up, stupid!'

    Police Officer:'What'd he say?'
