OMG. The last two nights of writing have just been crazy. Some of you heard about last night's love fest. Tonight was the exact opposite. Victoria revealed to Espa that she had once thought about killing herself, and only her love for the Robas and the Ishtars had stopped her. This was apparently at some point during her recovery from being abducted by Wyatt. Thankfully, she was in the hospital and of course wouldn't have been able to carry it out anyway.

Christien had a big problem with her not ever telling him about that, and he exploded on her and told her that he wouldn't have a marriage with her full of secrets. This prompted Victoria to reveal that she'd been thinking about things back in her world, and whether or not her friends there even missed her. She was also missing Johanna, and the nightmares she had were scattered between the Shadow Realm, the stage (with Wyatt), various locations with Aaron, and Marcia on occasion.

He wondered what she'd been telling her therapist that all of these things were still bothering her. (Some of, not all). He then reveals that he is terrified to death of them being married and what that would bring. Apparently, bridal catalogs make him nervous! LOL.

Victoria tells him that they have a couple of years, and that she wanted to do it on their eighth anniversary of performing Christine and The Phantom. Since the wedding is going to be Phantom of hte Opera themed. Haha. I can just see Christien's face when he finds out that Meghan got her way. LOL.

Tomorrow, they leave for Vegas, Victoria is reunited with Teran, Spencer, and Cale. She gets to see Marcia though only briefly.

Back in the carnival side, Jonathan invites Kendra come stay for the summer because his girlfriend wants to learn a bit more about the carnival lifestyle, and is taking summer voice lessons at the Conservatory to improve her range. (She's taken quite well to the stage, after a few side parts, and taking on Carlotta in the final performance of Phantom of the Opera that she and Victoria did together).

Tomorrow, writing aside, is the premiere of The Hunger Games: MOckingjay Part 1. <3 I will be seeing it Sunday, and so have been avoiding any spoilers about the movie. Yes I have read the book, and I know who dies when. I just don't want to hear how the movie differs yet. I want to find that out on my own.

It also marks the return of Girl Meets World with new episodes! YES! I am considering watching a marathon my tablet tomorrow as I write. I have missed Farkle so much!!

Trivia: The parts in Phantom of the Opera are as follows:

The Phantom- Christien Roba (understudy Griffon Roba)
Christine Daae- Victoria Ishtar (understudy Miranda Wilson)
Raoul DeChangy- Jonathan Roba (understudy Teran Bishop)
Carlotta- Kendra Underwood (understudy Erica Stanley)
Piangi- NPC
Meg Giry -Meghan Raptor
Firmin- NPC
Madame Giry- Ella Ford (at the Conservatory)

Most of the extra cast members were never named because it wasn't necessary. Just the principle cast. <3

HOLY SHIT. Today was a HUGE writing day for me. And a lot of stuff happened!! First though for the totals:

Words written:10,019
Overall total: 72,023

So very much happened today in the fanfic, it's ridiculous. Last night I mentioned that I planned to write the prom/engagement/ and abduction scenes. Check, Check, and Check! The engagement went off well, and of course Victoria said yes! It was funny. Mom was watching my face as I wrote that scene, and she got worried cause I was crying. LOL. But I was crying happy tears! I mean, for crying out loud, the pairing was 10 years old!! It's like watching your kids grow up in a way, you know.

Then of course came the abduction scene. OMG. But the actual kidnapping wasn't nearly as dramatic as the aftermath. Christien got really violently angry. He punched the crap out of a mirror busting up his knuckles pretty bad. He's got murder on his mind, still. I really hope that once he sees that Victoria is technically unharmed he calms down... I made the mistake once with my first draft of Into the Lion's Den 2 letting him "Kill" Wyatt. I'm not going to let that happen.

Two very amusing moments happened during the police's visit to the Robas' house, though. One came from Rex. The other came from Weevil describing that Victoria wouldn't have gone quietly because she makes a big noise about anytihng she doesn't want to do including several of his Biology projects. LOL. I have to say though, like Espa, I found it very amusing and endearing to hear them jumping on Tori's defense. I hope someone tells Tori about Rex standing up for her because if there is one more person Tori needs to be better friends with Rex. They're about in the same place that Espa and Tori were in for a while. A healthy respect for each other.

Then we get to where Aaron actually took Victoria. To his cabin retreat in the mountains out of psychic "earshot" of everyone. And he's trying the same tactics that his father forced on Marcia that partially caused her mental breakdown in the first place. After realizing he's hurt her pretty bad (he snapped her wrist by accident when he psychically knocked her out of a chair), he ices it, and then explains why he's doing what he's doing. After thinking she's melted him, she asks him to go easier on her, but he doesn't.

I discovered tonight that I am infatuated with the word "placate". It is the triplet Robas' favorite word to describe the Robas' treatment of Victoria and giving her her way when she doesn't want to practice using her barrier more. I even think I used the word "placation"? Wow, self. LOL.

Trivia for tonight: Marcia and Victoria share a love of aerial acrobatics. While Marcia was a star trapeze and high wire performer, Victoria is the carnival's current high wire choreographer. She is set to debut her first high wire act after graduation.
faeriewings1781: (Espa Roba)
Marcia is struggling to try and remember who she was at the carnival now. She had become super adjusted before Julius unwisely ripped away all the manipulation and thus, her memories of everything she'd done. It's like she's woken up from a very elaborate trance.

Since she knows she can't be the daughter her mother expects her to be, she is now trying to make things work at the carnival. It seems the only feelings she's finding to be natural are the ones she has for Julius.

Before anyone asks, those are the only true feeling Julius ever showed her outside of the control and manipulation. Sometime between the first time he ever tried to control her, and his father's nearly wearing her to death, he discovered that he no longer wanted to manipulate her, and instead decided he was going to fight to free her one way or another.

Of course it's probably too late to fix her completely. As we're aware already, Marcia's done for sanity wise. I STILL think that she left the boys to try and find Wyatt and Wade to try and figure out what hapepend, and how she ended up with five boys. I'm curious, though, why Spencer, Cale and Aaron didn't keep in better touch with Julius and company afterwards. I know why Aaron didn't, pretty much. He left to train with a more skilled psychic, and vowed he'd never return to the carnival. (Spoiler alert: For Victoria, he makes "house calls" to make sure that she's staying in practice.) Spencer starts coming around again after the fiasco at the school, and stays in touch with Espa more. Cale follows suit with his twin girls. He's become a parapsychologist and a famous author of parapsychological books. His twin girls are said to be very spoiled, and so during the summer that follows the events in Vegas, they are forced to come work at the carnival under Victoria's watch. (Giving Cale an excuse to join his brothers in keeping an eye on Victoria)

But seriously, I have no idea how I am wrapping this story up. It went far beyond any expectations I had for it! Maybe I Should wrap it up in the same way that I wrapped up "The Dueling Phantoms". I should write an act for Julius and Marcia for the high wire. But since I am not really sure of the time frame for this fic, I can't use Phantom of the Opera. We have had them mention.....hmm... I have an idea! Since they both love The Sound of Music, I could have them do a routine to "Sixteen going on Seventeen". Even though Marcia's not quite old enough yet. She was about to be fourteen as I recall. Hmm... damn. This is just going to get really complicated. I think that idea, though, would be really cute. I always did like Leisel and Rolf. I mean, Christien is certain not in his 30s playing The Phantom to Victoria's Christine! So his parents don't have to be the exact age, either!

Also not sure what story I will be telling next. I have other ones planned for the triplets alone. I just don't know which ones to tell yet. I am still working toward 100k. Since I will likely hit the coveted 50k by Sunday, I need to keep working, just to see how many words I can get. I'm still trying or figure out if there are going to be more stories for Marcia and Julius after this.

Okay, so while I was just writing that last sentence, it occured to me that I should end the fic with Julius giving Marcia the Promise Ring in the fun house. Like I originally said happened. It could be in the epilogue when Marcia's 15 and Julius is 16, just like it happened with Christien and Tori. I need that parallel there! Though now I am considering it might happen on the high wire instead. -nodnod- That seems appropriate. The first time Julius ever shows his affectionate side for her is when they're on the wire together. (Do you know I actually don't remember when Christien first told Tori he loved her? I know that they became an "item" during the events of Entrapment... but that's it).

Final count for the day: 5,078 words written
Total: 43,117
faeriewings1781: (Andrew Roba)
So! Things got even more twisted, terrible, and sad. My fanfic is taking on some interesting events, and I'm surprisingly okay with this. So let me get to yhe nuts and bolts first.

Words written: 4,797
Total: 38,039

TJ's total at time of entry: 39k.

So I did the whoel big thing with Wayne basically draining Marcia's power to the point of unconsciousness. Madame Leota saving her from worse fate, and then Julius agreeing to let the Munroe twins take her into hiding so that his father couldn't hurt her anymore.

I didn't write a lot during that time, so I have to go back tomorrow and write more words there because I can really see Wyatt and Wade taking advantage of the situation, and at least Wyatt trying to impose his feelings for her on the poor girl. I meant to do it, but the muses went in another direction. Which brings me to this:

Julius' father died. Since I haven't figured out exactly how or if he just died or if Julius killed him, I had Julius say it was a freak accident. Lucy, as it turns out, is not like Marcia. She stayed to take care of her boys. Good girl, Luce. Good girl. (I had thought that Lucy was being held there by power only, and nothing more. .I'm glad that she was not!)

After his demise, Julius came to the twins and set Marcia free of all the manipulation and hypnosis that his father had used behind his back. He made her go home even though she didn't even remember that place.

Later she showed up back at the carnival, distraught. She couldn't remember her home life at all, or the girl she was before Julius had abducted her. Her only memory was of Julius. And that she had to stay there.

Now Julius is being forced to live with his treacherous deeds and take care of Marcia. She is basically needing to be cared for as if she's forgotten exactly how to take care of herself. This, as it will turn out, is the same thing that happened to Cecily, who had been mentioned earlier as having to end up in a psych ward.

I am thinking that eventually Aaron or Spencer will do something that will fix it so that she doesn't have to go to an institution. Probably more likely it will be Aaron as it is proven later that he is the most power of the triplets, psychically speaking. (Victoria really doesn't like him that much...lol).

I am pretty much stuck now as to where to go with it next. I still have roughly 11k more words before I hit 50k. I am determined that this fanfic will hit that amount. I have never written one quite that long even though "Into the Lion's Den" came very close! This is my personal challenge to myself. Write a 50k word fanfic. LOL. But everyone thinks I will end up writing 100k because of my challenge to TJ. I don't think so. This story isn't anywhere near 100k. If anything I'm really stretching it out at this point. We'll find out. Ugh. I hate that I have NO idea where I am going from here. Not good, self. Not good.

Trivia: Tonight discovered that Marcia's favorite of her own sons is Espa. The reasoning is that she developed a really close relationship with Spencer Roba, and Espa has a lot of his same traits. <3
faeriewings1781: (Default)
I am kinda glad that either Espa doesn't know what really went on between his parents or has chosen to forget/or not tell his youngest brothers. The more I delve into the story behind Marcia and Julius Roba the more freaked out I am getting.

First and foremost, Wyatt *was* partially correct about Julius. But what he doesn't tell Victoria is that it started with his father. Julius and his father together facilitated Marcia's abduction to the carnival. Originally, I didn't know she was technically abducted. In my original draft of that scene, it was merely Julius' power of Suggestion (similar to when Christien did it to Victoria in "No Vacancy". By the way, I am really surprised Wyatt never brought that up. Victoria tends to forget about that moment) . But no. In this version Everything is premeditated, right down to the installation of Wayne Roba's former babysitter into Marcia's household so that the Robas could keep an eye on Marcia's developing abilities.

As bad as Wyatt was towards Victoria, Julius is 1000 times worse towards Marcia. He manipulates her, controls her, and at one point gets physical with her when she doesn't seem to be obeying him. Marcia's only saving grace? His triplet brothers. Spencer takes special interest in her well-being, to his annoyance. (I may be changing the ages cause of gthe relationship that's developing...it's kind awkward!) Perhaps Julius' biggest crime is that he doesn't treat Marcia like a person. To him, she's his protege, his property. Someone he must groom to his expectations.

In this story, Wyatt it is actually good guy! Can you imagine him being the good guy? Because Victoria (in my head) is a little weirded out by him being nice. LOL. THere is definitely a romance (light as it is) developing between Marcia and Wyatt. She is attracted to his kindness as oppposed to Julius' rougher exterior.

Of course everyone who's familiar with my Yu gi oh (more specfically my Roba fics) know where this is headed. But I'm still trying to figure out the in-between stuff. But seriously, some really psychotic stuff is going on!! I'm lucky I haven't had nightmares myself. I feel for Marcia. I truly do. And I've never felt bad for her before. I've been right along with Victoria with despising her for the position she put the Roba brothers in. But I genuinely want to hug her and tell her things get better, and that she does escape. Of course it won't be for years yet. After Julius has died... but...oh yeah! That's what I wanted to tell you guys!

In No Vacancy, she told the Robas she went to California to get help. That was a true statement. But it wasn't because she was sick. Marcia went to find the Munroe twins so that they could explain how she ended up with five kids. She had no conscious memory of consenting to marriage, or...and get this, reproducing anyone. >.< Damn, Julius. But I'm still not sure if that is his doing, or if Wayne Roba eventually got to her when Julius started to fail. We'll find out, I'm sure.

-shudders- I am rightly creeped out along with Victoria! I'm sure my Robas (Espa and company, not Julius and his brothers) are too.

Trivia: Even though he was only eleven at the time of meeting, Spencer developed a very protective side when it came to Marcia. That is why he took it so hard when he heard how damaged Marcia became later in life. :( (As a side note, that is also why the triplets, as adults, are so hard on Victoria about stabilizing her own psychic gifts and being sure no one can use Suggestion on her. They see a LOT of Marcia in her, and it scares them)
faeriewings1781: (Default)
Marcia Bullock: Is the main protagonist in the story. She is thirteen, going on fourteen at hte beginning of the story. Born into a family of rich people, she is fascinated by the carnival life. One day while at the carnival against her parents' wishes, she attracts the attention of Julius Roba, a prodigy psychic whom she has admired from afar for years.

Julius Roba: Julius Roba is the prodigy psychic of the carnival. He lives there with his family which includes fraternal triplet brothers, and an older sister who's recently moved away to pursue music. He's fourteen at the beginning of the story, and he is on the prowl for a new protege. Marcia Bullock has intrigued him from the first time he laid eyes on her when they were both young both because of her sudden appearance, and the fact that she seems unaware of her own special powers.

Cale Roba: One of three of Julius' triplet brothers. He is proficient with his psychic gifts too, and because of that, Julius enlists him and his other two brothers to help train Marcia to her gifts. Cale is 11 at the beginning of the story.

Spencer Roba: One of three of Julius' triplet brothers. Spencer is Julius' best friend, and second in command. Like his other brothers, Spencer is proficient in his psychic gifts that he can teach others. He prefers to keep his gifts under wraps so he and Julius tend to clash over those ideals.

Aaron Roba: One of three of Julius' triplet brothers. Aaron is the quietest of the triplets. He is also seemingly the least proficient with his gifts ( a fact later disproved). He tends to follow the other three around rather than express what he really is thinking until the time is right, and it is usually Aaron who keeps them all out of trouble.

Wyatt Munroe: One of a set of twins. He is Julius' main competition for audience at the carnival as his powers match Julius' perfectly. When they're not on stage, they can be seen to be friends on occasion. Yet, when Marcia enters the picture a whole new contest begins as they fight for her affection. His specialty is in Suggestion and hypnosis. He is fifteen at the time of the story.

Wade Munroe: One of a set of twins. Wade is not as psychically inclined as his brother though he does have ESP and telepathy. He is the most sane of three older psychics, and is often seen shielding hte younger ones from his brother and Julius' tactics. He becomes extremely protective of Marcia despite her constant refusal of his protection. He is fifteen at the time of the story.

Other Notes

There are going to be references to some of the present day characters from the carnival, such as Lyle Pryce, Madame Leota, and possibly Boris. Julius' family is the second generation of Robas to live at the carnival. Wyatt and Wade Munroe were not born into the carnival like Julius. They wandered in.

Julius and Marcia's relationship have many parallels to Christien and Victorias:

1. They''re all young when they start going out

2. Julius and Christien share the ability of Suggestion, and it is often stated that both use those gifts to keep their girls in check. (In Christien's case, it is speculated by both Marcia and Wyatt. Though it is proven untrue).

3. Both romances move fast.

4. Christien and Julius both give their girls promise rings at the carnival. Julius gives Marcia hers in the fun house, and Christien gives Victoria hers on top of the Ferris Wheel

5. Both Marcia and Victoria have to be taught their psychic gifts.

6. And perhaps the biggest parallel which I just realized is that Marcia and Victoria both come from broken homes. Marcia's family is in the middle of a divorce when she succumbs to Julius' suggestion to move to the carnival. Victoria was brought to Christien's world by force and later finds out her family is dead. (aside from the fact they were never as proper on the inside as the Johnsons' claimed to be.)
faeriewings1781: (Default)
So since "Into the Fire" is being wrapped up by tomorrow, I have a whole day (Halloween) to plan for "The Main Attraction". I'm not buying it. I need to brain storm here before I forget some of the things I need to make sure are clear.

The first thing is how Marcia and Julius Roba come in contact with each other. Skyesville is country area, so I imagine it will have some larger housing areas to, in and around the carnival area. The carnival is kinda the "gathering" place for most except the extremely rich, like Marcia's family.

I can imagine that Marcia was brought there once by her nanny as a little girl, and has a had growing fascination with it, and in particular, the main attraction, Julius Roba, the carnival's psychic.

I wrote a draft of their first official meeting once, and after re-reading it earlier this week, I have decided I didn't like the initial meeting. Given the history Wyatt Munroe states as true about Julius, I can picture him being a bit more aggressive with Marcia than what I originally wrote. Just subtly so.

I can't forget that there is also Wyatt and Wade Munroe as teens to consider. There was always this constant struggle between Wyatt and Julius over Marcia's well-being, which translates when it comes to Victoria and Christien. (Of course in later years, Wyatt has gone a bit power hungry and has lost his real purpose for being that was, so the well-being thing is non-existent where Tori is concerned. he's a bit delusional there) . Wade was an innocent bystander most of the time, trying ot keep the peace. He remains good friends with the triplet Robas, however

I have to remember to write out my character sheets for "The Main Attraction" tomorrow because there is a whole new cast of characters that are going to be introduced. I am excited about this. I've been wanting to tell Marcia's story for many years and I'm sure this time it will come out perfectly. Let's just hope it's 50k worth!

Trivia: Aaron, Cale, and Spencer, and their sister, Tracie each have a similar trait to Espa's brothers. Spencer, like Jonathan, was always Julius' second in command. Aaron was the serious one, like Christien, and is also an accomplished master of Suggestion. Cale is considered the most playful of the triplets, like Andrew. Their sister was like Ej will be, an accomplished master of telekinesis.

An Update

Sep. 11th, 2014 09:27 pm
faeriewings1781: (Default)
So today I went to the doctor and was told that my blood pressure was high, I was overweight by ten pounds, and that I had to get back on all of my medications with no exceptions. -sigh- I wish i hadn't gone to the doctor now, but I knew I needed to because....

A. I am not sleeping at night, no matter WHAT the hell I take.

B. My digestive system is irregular again, and making things worse.

C. If I am going to be irrational about being friends with people, then I need something to help me cope!! (Not that she isn't LOVELY when she's rational and taking HER medication the right way... but you know, that happens rarely these days)

So you see, this trip was warranted, and loathed at the same time. I was already feeling pretty low on self-confidence in the weight department after yesterday's jeans try on fiasco. If you know me, you know I HATE trying on jeans of any kind. Yesterday was especially more frustrating. :( Every pair I liked was either too big, or too small on me.


In other news, I am on the last "chapter" of Into the Lion's Den. And I really thought I might be at the end of the story. But now I'm thinking. I haven't quite wrapped up Marcia's part in this story, and I need to do that. So there will be a part 2, and that is where it will officially be wrapped up.

No, I am not going back to the stupid temple/cult idea. I have decided I hated that idea, and now the story will be moved to Vegas, as I originally planned. But this time I have a valid way of getting Victoria there. It should be fun! So Part 2.

I am thinking I will be working on my Powers story for NaNoWRiMo, starting it from scratch, again. I don't have the energy to work on a whole new novel. I want to get my dystopian off the ground.

Trivia: My favorite episode of Supernatural is Season 1's, "Hell House". That was the episode that I officially developed my Sam Winchester soul bond. I miss him.
