Yesterday, I was reminded of this event and for a long while I didn’t know which scripts I could submit then I realized I’ve written two fan scripts before. One for Smallville and the other was a TV pilot spec when “Charmed” ended. I’ll have to re-read them once more if runaway spaces came up again when I converted from Doc file to PDF.

I did find my “Smallville Season 6: Pieces” script and “The Charmed Paladins”  script. Yes! I even created a home for “The Charmed Paladins” too if anyone is curious to get the feel of the virtual show. lolz


Well, this was the poster. My photoshop skills now have vanished so pardon if I can’t re-do this now. 



The Characters 

Oh, I missed those days.  Cappucino withJules and I would share scripts and art dev concepts because she also has her own virtual series called “Ultimately Charmed.” I’ll never forget those times.🙂

Nostalgic, yeah big time when TV reboots just came just shy away from the originals. I hope they don’t reboot “Charmed.” Just leave it alone.


#amwriting words on paper day….

This was a bit of hiccup since I usually write MWF so having the day ## exercise was not for me but this doesn’t mean I’m not continually adding scenes when I’m away from the computer. My notebook has been super handy and at times, I find my story questions which would lead me to do more research.

From my previous post, I’ve wondered which was best to have antagonist 1 and antagonist 2 meet. I eventually decided  antagonist 1 is so well-ensconced in her cover identity that the inevitable meet with antagonist 2 will just flow from her scene and it did.  :D


#amwriting Words on paper stage, Day 19

I’ve added more background to antagonist #2 and now I’m faced with a block.

How will  antagonist # 1 of the story get in touch with antagonist #2 when their last meeting was years ago in Russia as teenagers?

I didn’t like doing the cliche scenes, such as out-of-the-blue  types:

  • antagonist #1 bumped into antagonist 2 (fated or not)
  • antagonist #1 somehow found out where antagonist #2 had been hiding all along

How do you propose a meeting like this handled?

There’s the matter about the gray-suited man /woman too, we saw at Agent Carter’s season 2 finale. Season three has to happen so sign the new #SaveAgentCarter petition to Marvel.

I had been looking for this email for ages and I’m glad the offer returned this year. However, I found out the promo ran until July 31, 2016. Unfortunately, I was strapped to my expenses so I couldn’t subscribe that quick enough.

I’m interested though and be saving for the monthly access for now since the yearly subscription is too high for me.

#amwriting Words on paper stage day 18

I decided to change this next progress report title to something more screenplay feel so “words on paper” which I found through re-reading Chapter 4: Building a Character from “Screenplay: The Foundations of Screenwriting” by Syd Field  sounded more apt.

I’ve thought up two antagonists now and slowly building their character backgrounds. I haven’t quite finalized yet which one will be from season 1 arc and the other from the season 2 arc. I still want to keep their identities unknown to the protagonists too.🙂 Plus, there will be a new recurring protagonist and I hope I’m not overloading everything in one shot.🙂

Stumbling back to King Arthur’s World – enter Prince Valiant.

Oh, man. I was so thrilled finding this entry in my reading list!

“Prince Valiant and the Quest for the Holy Grail: Volumes 11 and 12”  

and then, went back a little further to the related posts and read the post below. I just had to share this  here.🙂

Because it’s the 75th anniversary of the Prince Valiant comic strip this month, I thought I would summarize and review the first volume of the series, now reprinted by Fantagraphics Book, which covers the first two years of the series in print. Fantagraphics is planning to reprint hopefully the entire series, but so far the […]

#HayleyAtwell in #AsiaPopComicCon2016 #AgentCarter


After trying to make my August plans to reach a compromise two months ago, it wasn’t a go because those plans also fall on the same dates as Hayley Atwell’s visit here in Manila for the Asiapop Comic Con 2016. It’s quite nerve-wracking because until now, there’s no schedule yet.

Idk if I would venture next year because there’s hotel accommodations to secure and other travel expenses that will likely cause anyone headaches.

Ever since  @AgentCarterTV’s cancellation last May, the Save Agent Carter petition rushed in gear immediately and now it has  over 127k signatures. I really hope Netflix will acquire the show [edit: Netflix explains they why they didn’t save Agent Carter] and iFlixPH will soon add it to their list. “Agent Carter” season is currently in iflixPH.

UPDATE: It was announced last Aug 9, Hayley Atwell’s appearance was cancelled. Read more here. Hopefully, Bridget Regan who portrayed Black Widow Dottie Underwood, will join Hayley Atwell next year. *cross fingers*

Another exciting news GET SCOUTED BY MARVEL!  Have your portfolio reviewed by C.B. Cebulski . I wish there was a writer’s scout from Marvel  too.🙂

Marvel wants you


Lastly, there’s finally an @AgentCarterPH page for Agent Carter Philippines fans. If you miss Agent Carter,  sign the “Save Agent Carter” petition and connect with Agent Carter Pinoy fans who’ll be at the Asiapopcomic this Aug 26th – 28th.

I leave you this favorite compilation of  #TeamCarter VS #AgentsofShield Dubsmash.

Can you guess who won?  :)

Catching up with the #screenplay challenges #amwriting

If novel writers have NaNoWriMo then these two examples are for screenwriters. ZeroDark30  and from BlueCatScreenplay is  Goalpost: Write a screenplay in 30 days which AprilAustinWriting blogged here.

BlueCatScreenplay’s screenplay challenge pic is giving me the 1940s vibe so #AgentCarter? I’ll probably follow in invisible mode for these two groups for a while and see if my perseverance can take it.🙂

#amwriting Progress day on my draft episode #AgentCarter

My good friend  J.Gi Federizo did well in reminding me how was my draft episode project shaping up and so far, I’ve found this new trick writing in chunks very helpful and the built-in index card system is amazing because I can immediately view the notes or parts of the outline shown and  when I clicked the left-hand icon, this brings me to scenes under the index card umbrella I want to continue. I’ve also done re-arranging the index cards like which comes first and so forth, wow. I like the ease of it. Now, I hope compiling won’t be a problem.

Episode_S3 Agent Carter

I’m still building Act One for my… 11th day. Hopefully, these index cards mean  one day a page for me.

How many pages for act 1 in a episodic TV?

Looking up Smallville, they have 15 pages (excluding the teaser pages) so I have five more to go to round out Act 1. Oh, speaking of  this show, years back,  my friend came up with idea for the show’s season 5. I scribbled it and we’ve entitled  it “Pieces.”  I decided to enter it in of Scriptapalooza’s TV competition  unfortunately, it didn’t make it and I can’t remember if I opted for feedback. Oh, well. Just part of the learning curve.

I have yet to check out “The Flash” (2014)   script if they have similarities in page count for Act one. I have “Supernatural” but I can’t seem to find it.  I see from Scriptfly  they’ve acquired “The Flash 2014” and more “Smallville” scripts for study. I’m waiting for “Rosetta” though because this was the episode where Christopher Reeve (RIP) guest starred and one of  my fave episodes, story-wise.

I’m also curious to read about “Lost” show bible too which Scriptfly have posted. I would like to learn how to develop a show’s bible.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t a fan of the show & only watched S1.

I’m really hoping “Agent Carter” scripts will be up soon because that will be most helpful for me to get the feel of the show on paper.
