Well what do you know...
I stand corrected..
Well, I completely disagree. A story where a secondary character is introduced only to die at the end can bring out tremendous insight into a primary character.
I give you this exemple:
I usually dismiss about 95% of all TNG episodes as merely adequate writing-wise (sorry), but this episode and especially the performance by Michael Dorn was cinema gold. And made me a fan of Dorn's.
I suppose The Paradise Syndrome would qualify for the killing the love interest trope.
Well, Maurice was more specific than "having a secondary character die," he was talking about introducing a love-of-the-week and killing the character off. I entirely agree with him - it's beyond cliches, usually manipulative when it's not just lazy. COTEOF is a notable exception.
At least Kirk falling for Edith made some sense. Garrovick falling for an iguana, not so much.
It sort of makes sense, personality wise. They were made for each other, narcissistically speaking of course.
I suppose...but still...
I guess green scaley chicks go for the gim, surly type...
Look up mating habits of reptiles and amphibians sometime.
Pretty scary stuff if you're a mammal on the receiving end of that.
^^^There are so many different behaviors, just as there are with mammals. What are you taking about?
Who's to say that alien amphibian mating habits would be anything like Terran amphibian mating habits?
Yeah, well she slips him the tongue he's in for a real shock.
Sorry, I have been away for awhile. Is there any sort of ETA on Act IV?
The 7th anniversary of principal photography slipped by in July and I was just wondering...
This guy died wondering. That was 105 pages ago.
...and so the ship was destroyed entering the distubance with a loss of all hands. All that remained was the bridge, which was restored and used on the destroyer, AJAX.
Oh yeah, this is why I stopped posting status updates.
I know you've got a big challenge on your hands trying to edit Act IV using the existing footage -- pickup shots no longer being an option.
You're busy with work and other projects, too (I saw you in action on the Polaris set). I appreciate your efforts and hope that TTI can be completed.
Are you in good health, Fred?
Nice to see you are still around. Missed your posts and humor and wit!
