Well, I don't know how successful this will be, but I'm putting together a "pilot" 1st episode for a series fanfic. The pilot is incomplete right now (will probably add 2 more scenes & then work on actually putting outlines for the actual storylines on paper), but if anyone wants a preview look at the unfinished pilot, they can look here -- http://fnaf.net/daysfic/

This is a totally minor thing, but with the spoilers about Caroline and Bo, I would use the Alzheimers storyline to drop a bone to Shane/Kim fans and say if they are together. It could be something as minor as saying that they are going to see specialists that Kim and Shane have lined up in Los Angeles or mentioning that Victor's offer to help pay for treatment isn't necessary because Kim insisted that she and Shane would cover the cost. It just still pisses me off that they had Shane return last spring and never mention anything about where things stand with Kim.

Since no one in Salem ever remains dead, I would love to see Jude St. Clair return. He and Hope have some unfinished business. I would like him to be semi redeemed and figure out how he really feels about Hope. Not just the lust/hate/revenge angle. I could apply all this to Larry Welch as well. Jmo

He looks like Peter Porte, but I'm not sure if that's really him.

Good job, Matt!

I've pretty much checked out with Days, but I don't think I would have if you were writing the show, Matt. Interested to see where you take this.

2nd episode is wonderful. You really know how to use a cliff hanger. Impatiently waiting for part 3. Keep up the great work.

I can't compete with that fanfic, but reading the interview with Melissa Reeves made me realize they have something potentially interesting with Jennifer.

You have this woman who's grasping at something she relates to as representing family- a doctor who works at the hospital, like her Grandfather- but in the process she's fallen into this relationship that's...a little dark. They may both be broken people, but it's not (imho) a redemptive love. It's more of a narcotic, something she escapes to because the real world is hard, something that draws out her worst qualities (jealousy, anger, hatred, and a willful ignorance in the sense that she's refusing to recognize that Dan made his own choices with respect to Nicole).

I think that'd be interesting to watch this character slowly realizing they've been chasing an ideal and not a person, and that they've lost themselves along the way. Maybe even fold in Alice as part of that, her trying to be that matriarch and failing miserably, since they're stating that the loss of Alice is a big part of what motivates her now.

So that's what I would explore. It'd be about her growth as she develops her own identity (for as long as she's been around, I feel like she's kind of hollow as a character in a way).

I think it'd be interesting to do that with a few characters, because there has to be some impact on them after all the Great Romances they've grown up watching and hearing about. All these ideals to live up to- what happens when they can't (since the writers can't, really).

He either offs Rafe or Rafe is sent off in the witness protection program to live in Alaska.

Gone, But Not Forgotten!

I haven't checked this thread in a long while and I to laugh when I Saw that Matt was writing his own fanfic, because I too, have resorted to writing one myself.

It was funny to see another fan resorting to other means, over DAYS and their in ability to write any interesting or compelling SLs that actually suit their current cast of characters. So many unexplored avenues and missed opportunites...by TPTB.

MATT, you are doing an awesome job! I will look forward to reading on as your story continues.

I, being a devoted Jack fan and JnJ fan, I am knee deep in writng a classic, JnJ epic, tale....and am hoping to post it on D2D someday soon.

Writing this fanfic has been way more fun that anything DAYS has come up with in a long time.... so what's next.... Nothing.... DAYS has let me down, time and time again!

you guys are good at writing fanfiction I find it sad that fans have better concepts on characters than the actual writers do.If I was a writer the characters of Jennifer and SAmi need to be fixed.Sami needs to be alone for awhile this jumping from rafe to lucas to EJ back to rafe back to EJ is ridclous.Let the girl stand on her own.

I'd bring back SArah Horton if there going to make maggie a matriach then bring on her daughter and get rid of daniel maybe pair her up with EJ

I'd bring Carrie back and have Austin have died in some random accident with kate blaming carrie and vowing revenge

I'd bring Alex Kirikias back with maybe him being resentful of his younger brother who feels his parents loved sonny more than him because sonny was there bio child

I'd bring on a love interest for lucas

most important though is balance I'd write for everyone and no character should hog the screen five days a week

1) When an actor is leaving the show, do it mercifully quick and don't spend weeks on a storyline that ends with their departure. Spending a whole summer on the Melanie story was BORING! Like driving down a dead end road.

2) Please, writers, I beg you! If I see one more couple express their sexual tension by bumping into each other, accidentally touching each other, or falling on each other, followed by that goofy calf-eyed look, I'm going to hurl. (Examples: Carrie and Rafe, Sami and EJ, Sami and Rafe, Sami and Lucas) What are you guys? Thirteen?

3) Kill Jennifer. Kill Maggie. Kill Rafe. Give Kate a really juicy storyline. Give EJ something to do besides lust after Sami and get revenge -- preferably something he can do without his shirt.

I really like this concept! You just illustrated how there is so much potential with the show (even with the characters we hate) but none of the writers in at least decade have really been able to craft good stories. It is so frustrating as a viewer. ^o) ^o)
