All of us at times come up with story ideas that we would love to see acted out on screen or we feel would work.

For instance, one story I had back in the 80's when they first brought Iva on and said she was adopted was that I felt Iva should have been made a daughter of Penny Hughes and Jeff Baker. A tie to history and a tie to family. How wonderful it would have been to have Lily tied to the Hughes family and thus even Luke today.


Another story that I would love to propose for ATWT is a return to history as well.

When ATWT debuted there was a lot of talk about Chris & Nancy's daughter Susan who died by drowning, and Nancy made the statement that why did it have to be Susan and implied that it should have been Penny. My story idea picks back up on that statement.

I would love to have them hire an actress like Augusta Dabney, Meg Mundy or Virginia Dwyer or even a big name like Joan Fontaine or Olivia de Havilland but Dabney would be my first choice to come to ATWT for the short term role of Edith Hughes Frey. Edith has found out she is dying, and wants to return to Oakdale to do so. Since Ruth Warrick is dead, she could not do this so one of those actresses would be nice.

She also wants to clear the air with a secret she has been hiding. She convinces her favorite niece Penny to come home too. Penny was always close to Edith which angered Nancy. Nancy & Penny are a lot closer now, and she would fight her sister-in-law Edith on revealing the secret to Penny.

It would finally be revealed that Penny was really Edith's daughter from an affair she had as a young girl. To avoid the public scandal of being pregnant out of wedlock, Chris and Nancy adopted Penny and raised them as her own. It is a secret they have kept hidden for all these years. Not even Bob or Don knew about it.

It would not have to be a long drawn out story but could include so many of the Hughes family and give them a special story - a final hurrah I guess you could say since the writers are not interested in writing for them now.

A tie in to the younger set could be the arrival in town of Amy's adopted daughter who could be tied to one of the younger men in town like Craig or working with Lucinda at World Wide to get it back. That would give some extra drama to it.

These are just small ideas, nothing too detailed, but here are some stories I'd like to see for DAYS.

- Kristen returns to town and stalks Marlena. John, shocked to discover that she is alive, catches Kristen and tells her in no uncertain terms that she will never have him. Finally, Kristen accepts it, and begins to move out of John and Marlena's orbit. Whatever she does, Kristen is not part of a triangle.
- Jack returns to Salem bringing with him news that Jennifer has been presumed dead in a car explosion in London. Jack and Billie become close, but then Billie gets a lead from an old ISA contact that may possibly prove Jen is alive somewhere. Jack, Billie, Steve, and Kayla go on an old-school DAYS adventure following the lead.
- Sheila Carter crosses over to DAYS to lay low in Salem, and during her time on the show, strikes an unholy alliance with Stefano.

For GL, I would have Mallet killed by Griggs or another of his former associates, and then have Dinah seek vengeance Kill Bill-style. I just want Dinah to go back to being a scheming bitch.

At some stage on Another World,I woild have had Rachel's father Gearald return.
Rachel would have been alerted that a mysterious buyer was purchasing her artwork and she would have discovered it was Gerald.

After his prison stint he hade made a success of his life and now runs a string of boutique hotels.He opens one in Bay City(a work place and meeting place for characters).In the process he became estranged from Pam,due to her selfishness.

Rachel would have had mixed feelings about her father at first,but realising that like herself he had changed,would have allowed him into her life.

Ada would be less forgiving but accepted Geralds new place in Rachel's life.

Gerald would reveal he was terminally ill and his associate,a handsome younger man,would be like the son he never had.Gerald would be devoted to this man.It would be revealed that he is in cahoots with Pam.

After Gerald cut her out of his life and his will,she saw the opportunity to have her lover worm his way into Gerald's life.

As Gerald re-unites with Rachel she persudes him to mend fences with Pam.

Pam and her lover would then "fall in love" and Pam would be back in Geralds will.

However,not all goes to plan...

That sounds like a good story Morlock. I always felt that Gerald and Pam should have come over to AW too.

For AMC, I always felt that Rae should have come over to the show after OLTL wrote her off. It would have been nice for Myrtle to have a daughter and she could mingle well with so many there.

One story I had proposed on another board was for Myrtle to fall on the stairs at the boarding house and break her hip.

Rae could have come back to Pine Valley to care for her mother and see after the Boutique and the boarding house.

Shortly after arriving the Tyler Mansion would go up for sale with Erica and several others competing to buy it. Erica really wanted it since it is the oldest house in Pine Valley and was owned by the Queen Phoebe and plus it would anger Brooke for Erica to own it.

Marian would be the broker and even after it sells - not to Erica - she wouldn't tell anyone. All the members of Pine Valley get an invitation to a costume party at the Tyler Mansion. Givens everyone and the AMC costume department another chance to show their stuff with a big fancy party. The Tyler Mansion is now more gothic looking and late in the evening when it is time to reveal everyone's faces, the host emerges.

Originally I had planned for it to be Charles Keating as Ansel Cambias - Alex Cambias' long lost estranged brother. I would probably stick with that even though since then Alex was found alive and all. I would just want to forget that.

Everyone would be shocked at him being in town and to learn Zach had an uncle. But esp. Rae.

Ansel would set himself up to be an enemy to everyone in town - Palmer, Adam, JR, and Zach as well as the Fusion girls and Erica. A big corporate story would embark that would have all of them fighting one another.

At the same time, Myrtle notices Rae being upset about Ansel esp. when Ansel starts taking a liking to Kendall. It is not she is jealous of Kendall - just worried about her.

Ansel does want Kendall and sets out to break up Kendall and his nephew.

It would finally be revealed that Rae had an affair with Ansel years ago. She was in love with him and wanted to marry him, but he was too eat up with hatred for his brother and trying to win his father's love that he couldn't see it. Plus she was poor and he needed a more upscale wife to charm his father. Ansel set out breaking up his brother's marriage.

Rae finally learned she was pregnant and told Alexander about it. He offers to help her get out of town but she can't give up on Ansel. She makes up her mind to tell him she loves him and goes to tell him along with Alexander. They find Ansel in bed with Alexander's wife. Rae runs out.

Alex and his wife separate but then it was discovered that Ansel raped Alex's wife. Rather than go through the public scandal Ansel & Alex's father convinced Ansel to leave town and banished him. Alex and his wife tried to help Rae and when Rae told them she couldn't have an abortion they agreed to take the child and raise him. That child was Zach which would explain why Myrtle and Zach always felt a special attachment.

I know that it is a similar story that has been done but it would involve so many of AMC's cast and so many others could be incorporated. Ansel could be set up as a very hated villian in town and not a super villian either.

In the backdrop of the corporate story, I would have had JR switching loyalties and going to work for Palmer. Scott would return to town and go to work for Chandler. Despite being raised by Stuart, Scott would end up being more like his uncle Adam now. He and Adam would grow close, and JR would feel betrayed esp. when Adam mentions in passing that Scott is so much like him and really has the balls to make it while JR has too much of his mother in him. JR and Scott would become rivals in many ways.

So you would have all of them trying to fight against Ansel, but at the same time fighting within themselves.

I'd love to see a storyline on B&B involving Felicia questioning/experimenting with her sexuality. From synopses and seeing both Colleen Dion/Lesli Kay play the role, I wish Brad were bold enough to write a love story between Felicia and another female. She's so free spiritied that I could see Fefe doing that.

Maybe not so much define Felicia as a lesbian, but as someone who would fall for a woman. And not to create conflict between she and Stephanie(Steph has already said she would support Felicia if she were a lesbian because she has lots of gay friends). But to tell a story about love between two women. It doesn't have to be a big deal that Felicia's bi, because Ridge, Thorne, and Kristen would be like, "We kind of suspected it growing up" or whatever.

Instead of Ashley falling for Rick, I'd love to see Felicia and Ashley have a fling. The chemistry between Eileen Davidson and Kay was off-the-charts in that one scene they shared months ago. Imagine the shock on the faces of Genoa City residents when Ashley comes to visit for weddings and funerals with her "partner," Felicia.

One thing I might add to this story is that Rae instead would have learned she had twins, one being Zack the other being Skye. You could finally tie up Skye's poaternity once and for all but alos it would cause a lot of conflict for Adan to know that his once beloved daughter is really the daughter of one of his biggest enemies.

The story continues...

As Pam spends more time with the Corys and Gerald she begins to soften in her plans for revenge. She also becomes attracted to Mitch(I found Mitch/Felicia boring)and grows close to Matthew-revealing she had a son that died while young.

'Reece" her lover senses that Pam is changing and is worried that he may be out of the picture.He switches her birth control pills and Pam becomes pregnant.Reece acts thrilled as is Gerald and Reece proposes marriage.Pam agrees but soon after the wedding Pam miscarries and is depressed,feeling she lost the baby as punishment for her previous scheming.

Mitch is constantly on the scene,and Reece feels Pam is slipping away.Pam justifies that Mitch is just a friend.Meanwhile,reece discovers that Gerald had left most of his money to him,but now wants to change his will to leave it to Pam.

Gerald collapses in front of Reece who does not offer asistance,realising that Geralds death will ensure that he (reece)inherits.However,Gerald survives but is unable to communicate that reece left him to die.He repeatedly tries to tell others but Reece thwarts his efforts.

Pam makes love to Mitch and tells Reece.He says he understands and wants to save his marriage.Reece then he hooks up with his own lover ,a schemer like himself...and the plot thickens...

Love that James. So many good things in there and love so many you had leave.

Back before I started FTR I thought of doing a ATWT fan fic again. The first thing I was going to do was have a flood come through Oakdale like they did on SFT that year. Of course now years later some of the ones I was going to perish in the flood are no longer problems. Today I would have perish in the flood: Vienna, Katie, Brad, Cole, Sophie, and even Iris.

I would have Will to be hurt badly and need rehab and he and Katie would leave town for awhile for him to get it.

Give us a break from some of these for awhile.

For GH, I would bring the Webber/Hardy families to the forefront. Over time I would see the reintroduction of siblings Steven and Sarah Webber, their father Jeff Webber, his brother Tom Hardy along with his son Tommy Hardy. I would even bring Simone back too. The cause for all of these characters to return to town would be Audrey having a stroke. Her entire family would come home to help her deal with the results. We would see this clan really become a family again, they would lean on each other.

I would also strengthen the Spencer family. We hardly see Bobbie anymore. I would bring her to the forefront and have her and Scott reconnect. This would cause issues for Luke, who would have to once again deal with his sister becoming involved with his arch nemesis. Lucky would continue his budding relationship with Sam and Lulu and Logan would work through there problems. Luke would have an issue with both of his children's significant others, considering they are both members of families Luke despises.

The Baldwin family would become more prominent again. Serena would return to town with her Grandparents, Gail and Lee. Gail would reconnect with Monica, who would try and forge a relationship with kind of brother Scotty.

I will continue this later on, right now I have run out of ideas, lol.

GL (Ending Taggart and Culliton's stories and starting my own)

-Cassie and Danny pair up, and supposedly with the revelation that Gus is his half brother, Danny swears off the mob. However Cassie begins to think otherwise and lets on to her friend Blake, who then tells Harley, who then tells Frank. While Harley is conflicted about whether or not to tell Gus, who has began to bond closely with Danny, Frank asks Cassie to do the unbelievable; wear a wire. During the whole operation Gus learns the truth at the last moment and while he is furious that Harley kept the truth from him, he goes along with the plan, blindly believing that Danny will prove not to be in the mob. Meanwhile, Michelle who has yet to fully cut off her feelings for Danny learns of the entire operation and after some contemplation warns Danny. When Cassie carries out the plan to learn once and for all whether Danny is back in the mob, he surprises Cassie by confronting her. Danny storms out leaving Cassie in tears and leaving Frank to mend her broken heart. Meanwhile Danny and Gus have a huge falling out about his supposed involvement in the mob, and when Danny is unable to confirm the fact that he’s gone legit, Gus vows to take him down. Meanwhile Bill learns that it was Michelle who alerted Danny and temporarily calls it quits with her until she can get Danny out of her system. She in fact does after a lengthy period of time, after Danny signs over his parental rights of Robbie to her (He does so to protect Robbie and after realizing that he cannot keep his son safe if he’s going to continue this life). Shortly after Bill and Michelle reunite and become engaged. Bill begins construction of their future home; a cottage near Laurel Falls. Danny shocks all of Springfield by revealing that he’s set to marry the daughter of an infamous mob boss (Of course it’s a marriage of convenience; he marries her to keep Cassie and his loved ones safe). Danny and Cassie, who are with two separate people; long for each other as the two still harbor feelings for each other.

-Michelle chooses to be with Bill and the two later become engaged. Ed and Michelle open up a clinic on 5th Street. Meanwhile as this is all going on, the Spauldings are in the midst of a power struggle between Alex and a newly returned Alan-Michael. A-M brings back Amanda, who reveals that she is Alan's daughter. (Around the time Alan learns that he is not the father of Emma Spaulding) Amanda decides to stick around Springfield longer and not too soon her half brother Matthew Evans comes to town SORASed and portrayed by Scott Holroyd. When Alan suffers a heart attack in the elevator at Towers, Matthew is there and calls for help thus practically saving Alan's life. When Amanda asks her father Alan to give Matthew a job he is more than glad to do so. Alan takes Matthew on as a protégée of his having lost both A-M and Phillip (both men have cut ties with Alan). Alan teaches Matthew the tricks of the trade and it's not too soon that Matthew practically becomes a mini-Alan Spaulding. Meanwhile the Spauldings have designated a large area of 5th Street for their new Spaulding complex. There is a vocal protest against the construction of The Spaulding Complex and among those protesting is Michelle, whose clinic is slated to be next to the site. Michelle forms a friendship with Matthew and is able to get him to compromise with the residents of 5th Street. Matthew and Michelle begin to connect even more, despite the fact that Matthew's actions in the business world angers Michelle's husband Bill Lewis. Bill succumbs to the pressure of running Lewis and drowns into alcoholism, pushing Michelle away and into Matthew's arms. Basically a triangle is forming here. Matthew schemes to win Michelle's heart, and in one act reminiscent of Alan-Michael he hires a prostitute to sneak into a drunken Bill Lewises bed so Michelle can find her there. In the end, after some adventure involving the return of Matthew's presumed dead father, Mark Evans, Matthew decides to let Michelle return to Bill, coming to the conclusion that he can never win Michelle's heart.

-Blake returns to Spaulding Enterprises and butts heads with Olivia Spencer. Unbeknownst to the both of them, they’ve both been recruited by Alan-Michael to help him wrestle control of Spaulding from Alex over to him. A-M uses both women to help him take over Spaulding; all the while the two despise each other (Their personal lives spiral out of control with Olivia’s thirst for power and Phillip having sworn off the Spaulding name to become a writer. For Blake’s it’s her need to climb the ladder at Spaulding all the while trying to keep Amanda from stealing away her husband). When the three finally are able to gain control of the company, there is a board meeting held at Spaulding to introduce the new Vice President that A-M as decided to appoint. When the two women arrive outside of the board room, they realize that A-M has used the both of them. The two get into a physical altercation for all the board members to see. Both bitter that A-M has used them, they are later shocked to learn that the both of them will share the position of Vice President. As time wears on Alan-Michael’s feelings for Blake are reignited while Ross becomes weary of Blake’s growing involvement at Spaulding; thus creating a wedge between the two. When it comes down to it, Blake is faced with the fact that she has to choose between her family and Spaulding/Alan-Michael. Blake in the end chooses her family. Unfortunately Olivia chooses Spaulding over her family when she is found in bed with Alan-Michael (A-M reeling from the fact that Blake rejected his feelings for her)! Phillip and Olivia’s marriage is over; Beth and Phillip soon reunite. Olivia learns that A-M will always see her as a pawn becomes hell bent on revenge against the Spaulding family. She forms an unlikely alliance with Edmund Winslow against the Spauldings, and the two begin to fall in love.

After all... tomorrow is another day!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES stories to stir the pot because I'm BORED with pretty much all existing storylines and ones I am anticipating based on spoilers:

(Bear in mind, I don't even like half the characters I'm mentioning so I have no clue why I am writing such a meaty storyline for them, but just roll with it)

Phillip/Belle/Shawn/Kate ---

After what happened with her father Belle decides she can no longer be around the hospital without thinking of her father so she wants to head back to her fashion career and thinks it would do her dad proud to restore Basic Black to what it was. She tells Phillip about this (Belle says they can only be friends and what happened can never happen again as she hasn't called off her engagement to Shawn) and he encourages her to bring Kate back into the fold, knowing that Kate is still looking for work after the Mythic fiasco but has the executive experience that Belle needs to help her run the company. Belle isn't sure if she can work with Kate again after what happened over Claire but Phillip helps smooth things over and Kate apologizes profusely and apologizes for coming between her and Shawn and tells Belle that she has the same wish to do John's memory proud by making Basic Black a rousing success again. Unfortunately for Kate, when the new DNA results for Sami's twins come out so does Kate's secret of her previous blackmail of Nick to falsify the records when an off the wagon again Billie (she has lost her job as head of campus security because of all the violence against women on campus) mentions something to Sami about it at the baby shower at Chez Rouge leading to a huge confrontation where all of Kate's children disown her and she heads to the Cheatin Heart in tears. Phillip has come to the party to keep an eye on Billie but when he finds out the truth of what his mother has done in lying about a grandchild's paternity again to interfere in her children's love lives he is devastated by the reminder of all that went wrong with Claire and Belle comforts him and they wind up kissing some more. Even though Shawn has no job because the police academy wouldn't take him, he showed up late to the party for the twins because he had purchased plane tickets for a surprise elopement with Belle (she had been saying she didn't want a big ceremony and kept putting things off because she didn't have her dad to walk her down the aisle) sees them and confronts Belle. Just then Bo and Hope come out of the restaurant and he tells them what happened and Shawn finds out they knew about her cheating and hadn't told him. He walks away disgusted and heads to the Cheatin Heart where he runs into Kate. Shawn tells Kate she should be happy because Phillip has finally won, he has Belle, but Kate tells her she's not happy at all because she's all alone and her children hate her. She just screwed up one too many times. Shawn says he knows the feeling and can't trust anyone any more. The two of them get really wasted and the next thing you know they are in a Las Vegas hotel room in bed together and married! While at first they think about getting an annulment, they admit they both had fun together and decide they'll stay married for a while just to fuck with the rest of Salem. As ridiculous as it sounds, Shawn and Kate do wind up having a real May-December romance for a while where Kate helps Shawn mature and Shawn helps Kate feel desirable again and they drive everyone nuts, with Kate making Belle super jealous at work and Shawn getting his revenge on his parents when Kate gets her own ornament on the Horton Christmas tree.

Roman/Anna/Tony ---

Roman has kicked Kate out of his home after learning what she had done with blackmailing Nick to falsify the paternity test leading to Sami getting kidnapped and called off a relationship with her and starts pursuing Anna again. He has his work cut out for him though as Anna and Tony spend a lot of time together as in an effort to try to woo his bastard son back into his good graces, Stefano has given the two of them money to restart Tony and Anna DiMera Designs, albeit as a subdivision of Mythic putting EJ as the boss over his big brother. Tony and Anna Dimera Designs just so happens to compete against Basic Black. In time though, working together and living together does start to take its toll on Tony and Anna, as does Tony's emotional distance and the cold ruthlessness befitting the DiMera name he seems to be developing, and Anna starts spending a little more time with Roman. Will Tony realize that he could lose Anna before it's too late or will he wind up heading the DiMera empire with no woman at his side? And how far will he go to see that his company bests Basic Black?

Marlena/Stefano ---

Just as EJ and Sami are about to marry, Marlena shows up at the ceremony with a gun and says she's not going to let Sami go through with it. She pulls a gun on Stefano and we get great flashbacks of when Marlena shot Stefano during the 80s Ice Show storyline and their other battles. Stefano puffs his chest out and dares Marlena to shoot. Unlike the rest of Team Brady though, Marlena does shoot him. She feels she has nothing to lose with John gone. Marlena is arrested by Roman and taken away while Stefano is wheeled away by paramedics and EJ follows him to the hospital. Sami is shocked and heartbroken seeing her mother taken away in handcuffs, but Lucas is oblivious and cheers hugging Sami saying that she doesn't have to marry EJ now and they're free, totally ignoring what is happening to Marlena and how EJ may carry the feud on after this. Stefano does not die even though he is hit in the kidney as ironically John's kidney allows him to go on living. EJ is outraged by what happened but Stefano has a lot of resignation about it and doesn't want charges pressed against Marlena and also tells EJ the vendetta is over. The DiMeras lost.

Lucas/Sami/EJ/Chloe ---

With what happened at the ceremony, the wedding doesn't go forward and Sami settles into mundane domesticity with Lucas. EJ is still in the dark about one of the kids being his (Lucas and Sami are keeping this from him and Stefano also knows and is also keeping this from him) and decides to move on with getting his Mythic problems in order. After seeing Stefano let Marlena off after shooting him, EJ decides that's a wakeup call for himself that women are trouble and decides to devote more time to his work so he doesn't wind up like Santo and Stefano. But that problem gets a little more difficult when Chloe Lane Black shows up as EJ's new assistant at Mythic (she has given up her singing career because she says without Brady in her life she has nothing to sing for). Though Chloe does not tell EJ this, she has come back to Salem following Brady's tragic death in a plane crash. EJ also does not speak of his aborted marriage attempt to Sami but the two of them wind up talking up opera and places in Europe over a flirty dinner at Chez Rouge. Just then Sami and Lucas walk by and Sami does a double take. Lucas tries to pull Sami away but she won't be deterred from calling them out and harassing Chloe for being seen with EJ after what he and his family have done to Brady and Belle's father. Chloe says she had no idea EJ Wells was a DiMera and EJ says he had no idea that John used to be Chloe's father-in-law. They end the dinner awkwardly, but there is still some lingering attraction there that surfaces from time to time while they are working together and they have hot sex (but not on the same desk where he screwed Kate). Lucas is suspicious of why Sami cares whether EJ was out with Chloe, but even though it does bug her Sami lies and says she's not jealous. Still, that doesn't stop Sami from spying on EJ's love life from time to time as she has taken a job at Tony and Anna DiMera Designs as their company spokeswoman. This also creates friction as Phillip has encouraged Belle to hire Lucas (and Billie for that matter) for an executive position at Basic Black. Eventually Stefano will run off with the twin boy as he wants its stem cells and Sami will finally come clean to EJ that he is the dad and the two of them will work together to bring their son home. Will this revelation and teaming up to hunt Stefano down lead to EJami sparks or close the book on their relationship once and for all?

Bo/Hope ---

Hope comes down with the same cancer her mother had and she and Bo work through that. Hope becomes very very sick, but Lexie, who has had a cancer scare of her own, helps her get through it as does her good friend Kayla. As things start to look bleak, shockingly Kate winds up encouraging Shawn to seek a reconciliation with his mother speaking from her own experiences as a mother who has messed up with her kids a lot and misses them desperately. Shawn winds up being a bone marrow match that helps save his mom's life.

Marlena's psychiatry practice ---

Since no charges were pressed against Marlena for the Stefano shooting, she gets to keep her psychiatry practice and she throws herself totally into her work to keep from thinking about John. She starts treating Steve helping to unlock the secrets of his past with Kayla's encouragement, although Steve begins to wonder if some things would be best left hidden. She also helps treat Billie for her returning alcoholism and helps Bo get through his depression over Hope's illness.

Billie/Mike Horton ---

Mike comes back to Salem with Jeremy encouraging his son to testify against the DiMeras for the Skanks on a Plane fiasco and he works at the hospital again. He is gunshy about relationships but he runs into Billie while she is leaving Marlena's office and they wind up striking a conversation and sparks fly. Jeremy and Chelsea are NOT excited by the prospect of their parents getting in a relationship but is there anything they can do about it?

Nick/Chelsea/Jeremy/Stephanie ---

Nick and Jeremy become Odd Couple roommates. Nick starts to get jealous though when he starts to find Jeremy and Chelsea hanging out more and more and when he spies on Jeremy and Chelsea at dinner together at Chez Rouge with Billie and Mike, Nick gets the wrong idea and thinks that Jeremy and Chelsea are dating, causing a big scene where Mike winds up finding out that Nick and Billie slept together. Chelsea is angry, but Jeremy actually winds up helping Nick win her back as Jeremy is still in love with Stephanie, who begrudgingly accepts Max was just her way to get over how Jeremy hurt her.

Morgan/Max ---

They have sex with no incestuous undertones. It's hot.
