NEW PLAN OF AWESOME @ 08:35 pm

satori_m_m:
Mood of the Moment: ecstatic SO HAPPY OMG
Music of the Moment: Special: Avenue Q

I had this idea for Nora, that she's maybe carrying on an affair with some guy high-up (like Tony OMG), and Miss Socialite is totally pissed at her (because, of course, Miss Socialite wants this guy for herself) and so she blabs it to everyone.

And I think there ought to be two killers. Nora's a little too obvious on her own. Also, I kinda want Nora to have a pathetic fanboy to do her bidding, like he totally lusts after her and she gives him a kiss and he faints. And then later on, she wants him to cover her tracks for her.

Oh! We could keep Nora a little human, instead of a cold-blooded power-hungry killer (I don't think I can be a convincing cold-blooded power-hungry killer anyway), and have Fanboy start killing people that don't like her because he thinks it would make her happy. (and Fanboy should be named Eugene, or something dumb like that) And then everyone suspects her, and she gets to say something like "I didn't kill her! I didn't like her, but I didn't want her to die!" and burst into tears -- I can make myself cry -- and then it would be WONDERFULLY misleading. A true "red" herring in the most literal sense of the phrase - except for the herring part. Not a herring. And once Tony's dead, he's not there to protect her (if in fact we do decide that she was affairing with him) and everyone starts to turn against her!

And we have to cast someone as my desperate Fanboy. Oh! It would be really funny if it were Zach (if he's doing MM) because I was his fangirl last year.

Wow! I'm totally making myself the main character here. (of course we really know it's all about Tony.)

Of COURSE it's all about Tony!

Hmmm. Maybe we could have Chris die outside, or even at lunch again, so we could have that as a fun plot twist. Because, I'd like to be a suspect for a little.

And if we do it that way, I really can kill someone, and then I can be the Killer and the Killed! But no. That kinda ruins it. hmmmmm.

I think if we have Chris die before Tony, we can make it seem like he and Nora are in cahoots.....

wadaya think?

It would be hard with Nora's motive to conceivably kill anyone before Tony. I can't think of a way that would work.

'Sides, do you want Nora and Tony to have an affair or not? 'Cause it might already be hard to play the "they are in a relationship (maybe just using each other) but she kills him anyway" thing. Don't know if we'd want to add something more to the dynamic.

I'm always alright with having an affiar with you......

Hmmm. Maybe if Nora sees Tony with someone else, and she thinks that she isn't good enough, and then she kills him, and says something about how she'd be good enough for him now! And everyone will think that he was trying to fire her, but then, wowmygod! he's dead.

Oh! That could be in the scene behind the curtian!

No no no, that is too obvious! The audience cannot know that it is Nora who kills him, remember! The scene behind the curtain has to end with a slap, not with a killing. The audience will know the voices, so you can't hide the identity of the characters. And we should just find him dead anyway, so that anybody could have potentially killed him.

And I really think the curtain scene is better with Nora trying to tell him something about his illegal gambling program, except obliquely, so the audience still doesn't know what Tony's doing (that can be a clue, btw). Then he can slap her and go "Don't talk about things you don't understand" and she'll be like "You're the one who doesn't understand what you're getting into, Tony." and she'll walk off and he'll be like "Always have to have the last word, huh? You never change!" or something that shows how much he's just blustering at her.



OH! OH! I feel it... it's coming... the first draft of the argument! (really rough: obvs. I don't have your character's voice)

N: Tony! I know what you're planning and I have to tell you to stop. You don't need to do this.

T: I'm not planning anything, sugar. And keep your voice down.

N: I know, Tony. And you can't. You have to know what it'll cost you.

T: You're not part of this, Nora. It doesn't involve you!

N: It involves everyone, can't you see! You could ruin everything for us!

T: No, Nora! Stop right now! Don't put yourself where you don't belong!

N: Tony!

T: You're a performer, Nora. Nothing more. Keep to your place.

[pause]

N: I used to be more than just a performer to you, Tony. When did that change?

T: [nothing]

N: Listen to what I'm telling you, Tony! WHEN DID THAT CHANGE?!

T: IT CHANGED WHEN YOU FORGOT YOUR PLACE!!!

N: MY PLACE! MY PLACE! DON'T TELL ME MY PLACE!!

T: THEN KEEP.... YOUR MOUTH... SHUT!!!!!

*SLAP* *Nora squeals*

T: [breathing heavily] Don't talk about things you don't understand.

N: You're the one who doesn't understand what you're getting into, Tony. [pause] I'm leaving.

T: Oh, you always have to have the last word, don't you? [yells after her, like she's walking away] You never change!





One cool thing about having this behind a curtain is that it can be really detailed and specific because we can use scripts. Nobody will see us.

No.... He's not gambling.... I think that Tony is trying to open a brothel in the basement of hte next building.... But that might not be camp approite.... I dunno. But I don't think he's doing this for his own enjoyment. I think he's trying to..... make enough money to pay off Chris for whatever he was owed. Because he nearly got shut down my the cops in the past, and he had to move, so he lost his customers.

Hmmmm. Maybe Chris can die first, so that Tony is a suspect, and then BAM! he's dead.

I thought Tony was running the illegal gambling ring. Or, maybe he's made a deal with the Mafia to get the money, and... the Mafia threatens to kill someone he loves! Or something. Don't know. But he's going under. And as a clue, we could turn up some receipts showing how he hasn't paid any of the performers in a while, or something....

Anyway, Tony's short on money. And Chris needs money. And Nora kills Tony. And Chris is pissed, eh? And Chris gets killed because... he was annoying Nora? I don't know.

And Sam should get killed. Somehow.

The Fanboy can kill him. He can make some pervy remark about you, and the fanboy will be all "Oh no you didn't!" and kill him.

Hmmmm. Yeah. I think that Tony's not paying anyone for a bit to get Chris the money he lost.... somehow.....

But we don't have motive for Nora to kill Chris! Gods!

I do think that he needs to die first..... Make it obvious (ish) that Tony killed him to get out of the debt, and then we can have a whole bunch of suspects for Tony, and the subsequent killings.


How's that sound?

How did Tony manage to lose the money, anyway? Why wouldn't he have it like normal? Is there some sort of extortion scheme going on? Could someone be blackmailing him?

Yeah, I see what you mean about Nora's motive for Chris. But the whole killing Sam thing still feels kinda contrived. There should be a legitimate reason. (We don't HAVE to kill Sam, you know)

We can have a shouted argument still, but maybe Nora is the only one that knows Tony killed Chris...

I don't know, it still seems too obvious to me. It has to be hidden! Secret! Three killers might be too many, if we're having as many suspects as we can.

Hmmmm.... maybe the fuzz are corupt, and they are demanding a cut......

I know about obvious, ,but we are both concentrated on our characters, so I don't know if we can really think of everyone else....

Yeah. Two might be too many. I dunno. Other than Tony, who do you think has decent motive for Chris? And is Sam in it, or is he in the audience?

Yeah! That seems right.... Maybe Tony doesn't get killed until halfway through, which makes him a suspect.... And with everyone else, we can't plan all of it out.....


Hmmm, though. If we have Nora be the only killer, we have to only have three or four people die-- Tony, Chris, and one or two others-- because anything else is too many. If more than Nora..... Maybe have her Fanboy do it. Or have someone else do it, and make it look like it's fanboy.....


Okay. I'm out of ideas...

Oh! Wait! Maybe whoever is being all extortion-y can be a decently big character, and then WOWMYGOD, s/he follows Tony around, and then when he's dead, s/he swears that he deserved it!

No. That doesn't really make sense, but whoever is blackmailing him sould be a girl. Because, we need a powerful girl, who we can all cower in fear from.....

And I have this vision of Tony sitting whit his head in his hands, and then someone coming up to him, and asking him about something innocuous (sp?), and Tony screams "WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME!?" and storm inside, and then we find him dead.

Does tht work?

Are we stillhaving half of it be outside..... because that was kinda awesome....

I don't think so. Nightclubs aren't outside, and last year everyone got really rowdy and it was hard to keep control while we were outdoors, but once we moved inside it got better.

Powerful girl? Howzabout MISS SOCIALITE!! She needs to be more developed anyway. And Tony's dead, and she's like, Maybe we can get some real management in here now. Because... she's sleeping with that dude that wants to be Tony. And! She gets killed by the Fanboy because she was mean to Nora (because now SHE'S the top girl)! And once she's dead, then the evidence that she had something on Tony comes out, because it's on her person, like she was keeping receipts or something! Oh!

What do you think?

And if we're doing this in the mess hall, we could find Tony dead right outside the Ninja Bob doors. But I like the idea of having him dead somewhere inside, where we can make it clear there was a struggle. (because he has to be accidentally killed)

(And you spelled innocuous perfectly, btw)

Yeah, you're right about the outside bit....

OMG. We could have Idel (the socialite chica) kill Tony and Chris, and then have Fanboy kill Idel! Because she tries to take over the thing!

Hmm.... Is Tony's death going to be an accident? Or on purpose?

*omgs* Maybe, Nora and Tony were just married and so she gets the bar! But he's got an old will that gives everything he owns to ____________, who is then a huge suspect for killing Tony!

No.... That doesn't quite work. Maybe if Nora owns the bar now, she still stars, and Tony keeps around to help out.... I mean, that could be our happy ending, the closing scene, after everyone is figured out. It could be really, really cool..... And that way, we could give the entire thing a nice wrap up, on the lines of "See? The supernatural is your friend! The dead can help run your illegal businesses!"

No, Nora and Tony can't be married (as much as I love you, Monica). Just an affair, like an open secret, is good. But maybe... maybe his will gives the bar to her (and you should totally be like "MY favorite stage lady" when you introduce me, then) and Idelle is really ticked.

And Idelle tries to pin all the blame on Nora, and turns most of the other bar people against her (except for maybe the kindly old bartender and the skeezy old man) and they're like "Yeah, he used to abuse her. I knew she was mad when she said he'd get his" and Nora bursts into tears and runs away, and a few people go to find her and find a dead body, like of Chris, instead, and she's all next to it freaking out and Idelle is like "SEE SHE KILLED HIM!" and Fanboy's like "You did not insult my idol, beyotch!" and BAM! dead.

And then he should kill somebody else. Just for the hell of it. Oh! The leading snobby man-performer is like, "Nora, sweetie, you can't keep yourself in the starring role if you own the bar. People will talk. You should give the starring role to someone else, like me, and retire from showbiz. Or better yet, just let me manage the bar while you do what you do best. Managing a bar isn't women's work, anyway. I'm willing to give up my show spot for you, sugar." And she's all "I can do it myself, unless you want to be fired." all icy and then Fanboy's like "OH NO YOU DI-INT"
and bam! he's dead too! And maybe a randomly critical starlet dies too... that makes five. That's good, I like those numbers. Five dead. Two Idelle, three Fanboy. Or... one could be a total accident, just to mislead people.

And at the end, we could do something where we're sort of having a conversation, but I still don't quite know you're there. Like

N: Oh, Tony. I wish you could see this. You'd be so sad.

T: It's ok, Nora. You did your best.

N: I know, it's not my fault. I just... wish it didn't have to go this way.

T: There's nothing you could do. That Ms. Chattre was a bad egg from the start.

N: Why does Idelle have to be like that! She almost ruined everything.

T: She doesn't love it like you do. She's in it for the profit.

N: She doesn't care about this bar at all! All she wants is the money, the money. Moneygrubbing bitch.

T: She got what she deserved.

N: I can't say I'm sad she's dead.

T: You just have to keep going. It's all up to you now, you know.

N: Well, it's all on my shoulders now.

T: The show must go on.

N: The show must go on.


But obvs, that's pretty bad. You know your character; I don't. What say ye?

Hmmm. Yeah, they can't be married, but I think he really loves her, or tries to in his "aw sheeit, everything's agoing ta hell!" sort of way. Or maybe he only realizes he loves her after he dies? Maybe the best way to show that they're together would be to have him sitting with his head in his hands, and then having Nora touch his shoulder, and he starts to scream at her, but then he sees who it is, and he deflates.....

Yeah.

Or something like that.

We should definitely establish a relationship between them, but not neccessarily loving. I mean, don't they have to have their screaming argument? It should be rocky, maybe like they're both using each other a bit, but deep down they do care.

It's much better to have the stalker fanboy kill people, but blame it on Nora. Because then, it's all suspicious of her, because all the people who are mean to her are dying, but it's actually Fanboy. And even if people guess it was Fanboy who killed some of the people, they'll think he killed them all (because we've never had two before) and they won't think that Nora in fact killed one.

OR.... Nora doesn't have to kill anyone. She could be the RED herring, in a huge way, and Miss Socialite could be killing people. And I'm sure we can give Miss Socialite a motive to get Chris.

and Sam is not in it. He's in another class, and requested a messy death as a way for you to take out your aggression at him not being in the class. I suppose he's thinking it's better than a real death.

YES! Maybe Fanboy can kill Sam and whomever else, Idel can kill Chris, and Nora can kill Tony. Or will Idel kill both Chris and Tony?

Miss Idelle Chattre should kill both Tony and Chris, I think. I like it better with Nora as a red herring. Her motive for Tony can be... I don't know, she's taking over or something. We should find someone to play her before we plan her out too much.

And you can totally walk around and do stuff! You're the post-mortem narrator. If we have drinks for people (I can totally get fake plastic wineglasses if someone closer to camp provides the bubbly) you should steal someone's drink, and so on.

YES!!!!

And I think I keep taking everyone's champange (sp? again?), but I keep tasting it and wincing, so I put it down somewhere, and pour myself some "red" (pomagrante juice, which is pretty much only second to espresso, drinkwise).


But can everyone see me, then? Because that would be kinda cool, if the dead walked around and everyone took it in stride. Obviously, they had forgotten the terrible memories of their death, and the can't really talk about it, otherworldly thing, don't ask, but they can still help out with the living, if they're tied there.

I think dead people walking about is a little bit beyond what we can ask people to accept for this one. Just be happy with being a narrator, dammit!

But! We do need some red. And some other kind of juice, too, to be scotch or whiskey or something.

But nothing is the colour of a good scotch....

But yeah, you have a point. Maybe, only the audince and Nora can see Tony, so he could honestly just be in her head...

Hmmmmm. I think that one of the last clues should be a ripped up note from Tony appologizing to Nora for yelling at her, and hitting her. because then it might seem like she had ripped it up, and thrown it down and gone off to kill him. Or maybe it's just crumpled?

SOmething like that.

And I still think that one of the other showgirls should happen across her as she's covering up the handprint and be all like, "Are you ok?" so that she can say something ominous like "I'm fine. He'll get what's coming to him, anyway. He'll get just what he deserves..."

Yeah. I agree. And that'll be GREAT with Nora being the only one who can see Tony after he dies. Actually, could we have Nora and Tony hug, and then all of the cast go "Nora, you seem to be embracing air...."

Because that could be fun.

Maybe it should end with Nora being packed off to the madhouse and the place falling apart.

Or... maybe even Nora doesn't see him, and there's just a sort of unexplained faux-communication between them. Like that scene I put earlier; that could just as easily be played as if Nora had no idea Tony was there.

yeah. I dunno, call me a romantic, but I like the idea of them Tony and Nora having happiness, even after he dies. Or, maybe, we can kill Nora, and then they can be all happy-like in death.

Except no, but it would be nice.
