my first girl thread - Dedicated to singles/loners/Forever Alones

[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBAVuzZAdmE&t=9s]Leave this song open as you read.[/url] . . . Good evening, Flood. How are you? I was just thinking about my life and stuff, and I felt like sharing a dream of mine. I like to daydream, you see. Sometimes I make up awesome action sequences that would blow everyone's mind if they were to be in a movie. Other times it's something like a music video or a dance sequence that would totally revolutionize pop culture. I have a good imagination :) Which brings me to the next thing I daydream about most: love. Having a girlfriend. To have someone to love, and be loved back by them just the same. Surely you guys all do, too? So there's this girl. Name's Yvonne. She is basically the sweetest, cutest, most wonderful girl I know. I like her, and I think she might like me too. I'd ask her out, but I'm waiting for the perfect opportunity. In the meantime, I just have these daydreams of being with her, talking with her; holding her hand, going places with her, having fun with her; hugging her, comforting her when she's crying. You know what I mean. There's this one recurring daydream I always have about her; it's really nice too. As a matter of fact it's based on a thread from a couple days ago about "what would you do if the world would end tomorrow?" The premise is that there's an asteroid that is going to crash into the earth and kill everybody. So, being the daydreamer I am, I dreamt up this hypothetical situation about how, if the world were going to end tomorrow, I would contact Yvonne and tell her I liked her. In this fantasy, she likes me too, so we decide to go out and be together on the last day of our lives. Holding hands, we walk around the streets and city; it's a mess. People are breaking into here, killing someone there, having sex there; it's absolute chaos. The details of what we do on our romantic pre-apocalyptic date together are irrelevant (not sex, btw; unless she wanted it); let's fast forward... It's nighttime now. Yvonne and I end our day together [url=http://www.999images.com/wallpapers/night-stars-tree-1280x800.jpg]sitting under tree, gazing at the night sky.[/url] It looks especially pretty tonight, so tranquil and peaceful; Every star and every planet and every galaxy seems to be visible tonight. It's ironic, considering we're all going to die in a matter of minutes or hours and never see it again. In this dream, I can also play guitar, so while we're lying there looking up at the stars, I'm serenading Yvonne with the song that you're hearing right now. She scoots closer and we cuddle, her cheek against mine. Feeling a tear begin to run down her cheek, I look at her to check what's wrong. She's staring up, apparently at something in the sky. I follow her gaze and, realizing what she sees, I lie down next to her on the grass. Our hands meet as we lay there, watching a bright fireball in the sky get closer and closer. - - - The end. Any of you feel like sharing your dreams you have about that special someone? I may not know who she/he is, but I'm sure they're amazing. P.S. Right now, I've decided I'll try to make this into a movie or a short film. We're trying to come up with a title! Any suggestions are welcome (but keep them serious plz) [Edited on 04.14.2011 6:01 PM PDT]

  • The first thing I thought of was that Yvonne could have a small temporary tattoo of a swan somewhere on her body. Here's why: Being "temporary", the tattoo is a symbol of one of the themes of your story; limited time. Just as the world is a temporary mark in the universe, as love is a fleeting emotion, and as humanity as a hole will vanish into the "skin" of the Earth, so will the swan fade from view. But there will always be remnants, little black lines, like an epitaph of someone or something that was once great. I see the character of Yvonne as something of a delicate figure hovering overhead, not unlike a bird, out of reach except for one beautiful day after which no one will ever touch her again. As time passes, so will the ink disappear, and so will the swan's song drift into space where nothing exists. Here we are all equal, actualized in a web of one conscious, and where neither you or Yvonne exist.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] James BF OP How about you title it "Swan Song"? The term, if you don't know, comes from the ancient myth that the Mute Swan is utterly silent for all of it's life until death, when it releases one last beautiful song, like an exhale, until going silent. I think it goes well with the mood you're trying to create. A sort of somber, withering beauty that slips through our fingers when we don't want to let go. And it can be taken different ways; whether referring to your guitar serenade or simply the day you spent together as a sort of musical send off from this world. [/quote]I love it! Definitely taken into consideration. Can you think of any ways to subtly incorporate swans into the story at all?

  • Why are you waiting for the perfect opportunity? Ask her out after class. "When you free?" you say. She responds. Then you say, "Good. I wanna take you to X." [Edited on 04.14.2011 11:14 PM PDT]

  • And in a hilarious turn of fate, upon completion of the movie Yvonne was found to have been dating someone with the courage to actually ask her all along.

  • [url=http://i53.tinypic.com/jahmib.png]Here's an extremely rough draft of a possible movie poster.[/url] Basically everything is still a work in progress: the movie title, tagline, and image are all highly likely to change, for reasons including: a.) the picture might be copyrighted; and even if it isn't, I'd want to have something completely original, not off of Google Images b.) I'm still not sure if I want to stick with the tree motif c.) still can't decide on the tone of the movie and the title, tagline, etc. [Edited on 04.14.2011 10:16 PM PDT]

  • While we're at all this pre-production business, do you guys want to help me with the soundtrack too? Besides the guitar version of Kiss the Rain, here's what else I have planned: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggJt3C74bRE]Journey - Open Arms[/url]. used in scene where guy calls girl [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPy4U9ogblE] Gumi Megpoid + Miku Hatsune - Futariboshi[/url]. possibly for either the date montage, or a trailer; this song sounds like it's made for a date soundtrack if you ask me [Edited on 04.14.2011 6:49 PM PDT]

    I'm pretty sure anybody who is forever alone is either not going to read this OR they do read it and it wont change them at all.
