One error I found reading the episodes that I found quite funny ...

At the end of episode thirteen the previews say IN TWO WEEKS than you click to go to the next episode and it say three MONTHS later. LoL

ETA: Oops, just noticed where I got confused.

Yep. The series time jumps between arc. For example, there may be a run of 30-50 episodes that all take place in straight time, consisting of what I think of as an arc. Once that specific arc concludes, the series might jump anywhere from a couple of months to several months in the future until the next arc. It moves things along at a quicker pace. Also, a lot of the time notifications at the end of episodes were from the original postings of the series that indicated when the next episode was scheduled to be posted. Meanwhile, the time designation at the BEGINNING of the episodes is in regards to where in FNaF time that episode takes place.

And, yes, in going over these old episodes I'm finding tons of errors scattered here and there. Clearly, my editing skills leave much to be desired (even though I think I proof read those eps 3 and 4 times at the time).

You always seems to write "loose" instead of "lose." You should work on that. :)

Yeah, I was noticing that. I didn't write those out in Word before posting them. I actually originally wrote them in my webdesinger software. Since that software doesn't have quite the spellcheck/editing check as Word, I'm wondering if it just screwed them up and, in my haste to post, I just skipped over them. That was back when I was posting daily episodes and writing upwards of 70 pages a week. You would've thought I was writing a TV soap as much writing as I was doing.

There is some strange reason that we make mistakes which, if someone else was writing, we'd pick right up on it! It used to drive me nuts in school when I'd be up all night writing a paper and someone would point out an error! Even when posting, I've noticed (usually after it's already up) that I've written "they're" or "there" when of course I know it's supposed to be "their"! Anyway, I'm really enjoying this stuff Matt (not discussing spelling errors)! One thing I've always loved are "bad girls" and troublemakers and I love when there's more than one on the canvas! Joyce is a great character! You've put your heart and soul into this and it shows!

I love throwing little "Easter Eggs" into episodes. I think I mentioned a Dr. Hardy & a Dr. Hughes in a hospital scene, once. Also, there's a big wedding at some point where I tried to work in as many soap titles into the vows as possible. Then there's a 1936/Arc2 character named Donna Allison who's from Madison. And if Judith's relationship with her father sounds familiar, it's no coincidence. I think a young Bette Davis would've made a wonderful Iris Carrington...

ABSOLUTELY where BD/Iris is concerned! I picked up a few like Dr Fred Rutherford! I wonder if he has a son named "Lumpy"?! I'm putting my money on Dr Fred as Annabelle's murderer! And I can honestly say that the scene with Grace and Louise moved me more than the Liz Foster death scenes on Y&R! Good stuff! And will Donna kill herself and frame her rival for murder? ST ELSWEHERE was good for dropping character names from old shows in discussions!

I DO thank you! This is great! I never realized "True Confessions" went that far back! I used to buy a bunch of magazines every week from a news "stand" in the 1990's, some for me, some for my "stepson" and "True Confessions" and "True Romance" and any variation on those for my girlfriend! I used to love the looks I'd get with the mix on the counter!

Episodes #86-90 have been reformatted and uploaded. In these episodes, a romantic mistake is over-shadowed by death; more clues to a murder come to light; Stephanie receives multiple pieces of useful information; and Dorothea gets a surprise visit from her wayward daughter Naomi -- who has a surprise of her own.

I never knew Dot Cotton Branning had a mom named Stella who worked as a waitress in the states!

Presently, I'm on episode #31. Originally, I only got to the reading of Thornton Preston's will. I never knew Annabelle would get murdered, etc ... :angry:

Yeah, I had considered that which is why I REALLY try to leave my "this happens in this batch of eps" purposely vague so that people who've read up understand the teasers and yet I don't give vital information away. I deliberately have the site structured so that it's possible to avoid spoilers since all of the clickable character info inside the episodes is only current up to that particular episode. I think the only obvious spoilers on the site are the "Current Cast" page and the "Family Trees" & "Status Charts" pages which are currently inaccessable. And even then, they're only current up until the beginning of the most recent arc.

I'm sorry guys! I was accessing later episodes and just started on the early ones! I did let the Annabelle thing slip but the other comments (Dot, Donna) were "jokes"! I should have realized others may not be where I am! I won't do it again! :shame:
