Today is the big day, in the USA comes the reboot of Charmed. What do you think about it? Honestly I do not know what to expect ... I could live well without, but since they did when I happen I'll take a look ... frankly, however, I fear that will distaturate the series a lot. On the other hand to make a sequel was impossible given the number of cousins: you yourself only exploit some at a time. Not to mention that it would have been very expensive to keep such a solid cast. We hope well!
It will improve by force, or it will be canceled. Here it is the revival of a famous show, and there are great expectations; if it will be a flop the CW will make a fool and will try to avoid it at all costs. If the first season will not be particularly appreciated I strongly doubt that there will be a second ... they will try to make their failure forget quickly.
Just watched it and it was pretty awful.
Sorry to interrupt. OH my gosh. You managed to see one episode how are you doing? I did watch the trailer and I was overwhelmed with boredom. Are Whitelughters allowed to kidnap you and tie you up to tell you about what you are destined to do in the Reboot?
Hi, first of all, would like to say I'm a big fan of both your series. Second of all, for the power of Necrokinesis, you could use the gif of the Angel of Death 'killing' Piper when creating the new page. I'd be happy to help create the page unless you want to or not create the page at all.
Hi, thank you. I tend to only create pages when they are "needed/relevant" in my stories, like when a new character displays a certain power. It has never been my intention to create pages for every power, character etc.
Finally, Violet's power evolved. Time Travel huh. Cool. This story was kinda emotional. I have no idea how I would have handled it if it were to happen to me. Once again you really have a gift for writing. Wonderful chapter. Can I just say that I can now finally admit that I love Billie and Nick as a couple. At first it irritated me, but like I said you have a gift. Now I love them.
Now I have a question. Is it possible for a child born to two Warlocks, but raised by mortal parents, thus having good morals and values and all that, to have the power of Blinking?
Hi, thank you. It means a lot that people enjoy my writing.
To answer your question based on my opinion only, magical powers lie in the blood, so I do think it is possible for good people to get powers that are considered "evil". Not having a soul does not mean you're automatically pure evil, just look at Drake and Kyra. But I do think that a warlock raised by mortals will have some serious inner conflicts and would constantly struggle against his nature to do the right thing.
Thanks for the response Dragonfly. I now have clarity. Since you responded can I ask another question. Just curious. Do you believe that in each family the oldest child should be the strongest and the youngest the weakest in terms of powers? I'm planning a story and I'm just wondering what I should go for.
Don't know if you remember me, it's D'Blacq. The previous question was mine. I'm struggling to change my name. Thanks for replying. I love inner conflicts, so I think I'll go with that. Oh and Dragonfly you'll definitely get that link if I decide to post. I'm kind of more of a reader than a writer.
I have a question. I've noticed that a lot of people write next generation fics and yes very good ones at that. I was wondering, what do you think about me doing a fic set in the unchanged future from the episode 'Morality Bites' about Melinda Wyatt. I absolutely loved that storyline.
Hey Mikey. Glad you remember. Thank you man. I have a question. Just curious. Is there any significance to having a dream within a dream. I have them quite a bit. Does it mean something or is it normal?
I had some weird dreams and some I remember. Once I was in the backyard of a beautiful house with wonderful wife and children and I was having a barbecue party. What was weird about the dream is that no one had faces and there was no sound. They were talking but there was no sound.
That dream means that I am hoping for that great future. The faceless people means, I have not yet meet my future wife and those people.
I had a dream where I was in Charmed and in a episode.
I've had some pretty weird dreams. I remember this recurring dream where I had powers and running away from people. My powers were weak against them and I couldn't get away fast enough. I think I know why. I think it's because I'm gay. My powers are weak and I can't run away because I can't hide it for much longer. I'm not officially out yet and it scares me. I think that's why it happened. Dreams suck big time. Mostly I have dreams about the world ending. By the way I hate dreams about faceless people.
For for what it's worth, I have nothing against you being gay. I could maybe not agree on you about another things. I have a friend who is and I knew a girl who is a lesbian and one who is bisexual. And I am working on a story about Christy being bisexual.
I once thought I was, but I wasn't. It's just that I was only attracted to women with different personality traits.
Sometimes, what people fear is the fear of their own sexual orientation, not what people would think of them.
Hey Mikey. Sorry for the very very late reply. One word-life. Kept me quite busy. To answer your question, yes I'm still working on it. You know me. I'm actually trying to follow the advice you gave to someone some time ago on how to plan a story I think. But still, I'm following that advice. The story kind of took a back seat for a really long time. Even my character choices changed. I replaced Ryan Guzman and Nina Dobrev with Cody Christian and Danielle Campbell, but now I'm not so sure. My mind is very fickle. I still have the character you created, Trevor if I'm not mistaken. You said that he is part witch with a dark side. Is it something like Demon-Witch or just a natural bad boy persona?
Thanks for your answers, but I have a few questions.
1) You talk about Cole, but what about Julian? The essence of the Source was vanquished, but Julian still retained his ability of Flaming. Wasn't that the Source's power? Why didn't he have the power of Shimmering like his father? Just curious. Or is there a difference between a dark essence and having an evil half?
2) To your answer about past lives, I don't mean in real life. I'm planning a story about a character that can recall any knowledge or memories of any past life connected to that person of course or access any power of any past life. She wil be ultimately reincarnated by a certain past life. So I just want your thoughts on that.
1 Julian is half demon because he was conceived by Phoebe and Cole (possessed by the Source). The demonic powers he has are his own, they are in his blood. When he was possessed by the essence, he was far more powerful, but those powers are lost.
2. It sounds interesting, this character will still be a witch/magical, just not in the Charmed Universe?
I hear what you say about Julian and I understand that so I'm not going to talk about that any further.
I haven't done any planning yet, it's basically still just a thought. The character won't be in the Charmed Universe, it will be an original story. Ultimately she will be a witch, but I was thinking of slowly building it up to the point where it's revealed that she is experiencing memories and knowledge and displaying powers of certain past life, a dark witch. Basically she needs to be saved before her heart turns completely black. Does any of this make sense? I just love magic.
That sounds like a good idea. How about twins-one good and the other dark? I've always liked that dynamic. The only headache would be coming up with a title. I have some thinking to do. I can already see that she'd be a complicated character. Story of my life.
Just out of curiosity, can you say in your home language please and I'll try to translate it. I'd love to learn more languages.
Listen, ignore the comment about them being twins. Just realised it would be impossible. Had a little blonde moment. Still love the idea of two different past lives trying to influence her. I'm still struggling to figure out the good past life's involvement. Maybe like a hunter of sorts.
While wandering around the wiki I made my way to the page for the astral projection power and noticed that Piper, Phoebe and Paige weren't listed as users of the power. At first I thought it was because it was taught to them, but then I remembered that Miss Donovan was taught the power as well. Is it because they only used it once or some other reason? Thanks for taking the time.
(My mistake, they used it twice. Forgot about the Magic School one)
Thanks for clarifying! And I love how you decided to handle the Legacy storyline! Can I ask why you decided to kill Piper? I mean, I understand that you had to get The Power of Three out of the way, but why not Paige or Phoebe?
I had several reasons to to kill Piper in my stories. Like you said, it was to remove the Power of Three. The second was so the next generation could live in the manor, and the third was because out of all the sisters, Piper's story felt most done. Phoebe is of course heavily involved with Julian's storyline and there are some future stories that Paige needs to be part of.
I have a storyline where the Charmed Ones are written from my series by the Angel of Destiny. I have a problem with if I should rewrite their memories or not as they are not gonna return. What do you think?
Do you mean like the world knew the Charmed Ones existed but they have no idea who they are or were? Like I did with the Jenkins Sisters. Both Good and Evil knows about the Warrior and the Goddess just doesn't who they were.
It's a little confusing. Probably because I don't remember everything that happened last season. And I feel like the sisters seem a bit too passive. They just let everything happen without much knowledge.
It's a working scene. I am not finished with it. It has passed about 1 year and half and I thought about "Witch Way Now?" they were given a chance to have a demon free life as a reward, but the second time was like
"You have been given a chance for a normal life, but in reality the Angels of the Destiny wants to do their jobs. So you don't have much of choice." But it's not like they wants to turn down that offer twice. I mean they have said that before they wants to quit being the Charmed Ones.
Well, when I wanted to start a third season I had to figure out what happened to Paige and her babies. As I didn't really planned on having a third season and left that a mystery, and then I realized that if the sisters stay they will take too much time about half of the Season 3 and I am planning to write another episodes without them.
So I write in a episode that Paige and her babies were sent Netherworld between Good and Evil because I needed a neutral place. Paige was originally supposed to appear in the final episode. But I have to do major rewrites to have them written out.
Well, I felt like I should end it. The more I tried to focus on my characters and places it felt like the story always wanted to change about the Halliwells and they would eventually consume the entire season, and I can't have that.
I read about adults who were abandoned by their birth parents just because they had a change of heart or greed when I wrote about Henry's past. I will tell you soon about the episode.
I liked it, Piper makes good points, Charlie sucks, Phoebe could have been nearly dead, and Leo trusted him. It shows how much he cares about his charges. I liked that you had Paige's abduction issue. Will you explore more about it? Derek was ambitious with the gun so much for turning a new leaf, lucky Phoebe stopped him.
but I was confused on somethings.
Was Professor Carlton healed or will he forever have a slash of nails on his face?
Why does it say that both Bastet and Anubis are vanquished? He never rose and she did possess Lauren through the necklace? Isn't Bastet still trapped inside the necklace, as it did flash and becames dormant?
Both Anubis and Bastet were vanquished in the past. Bastet is not literally inside the amulet, it is merely the source of her power. When Lauren put it on, Bastet was able to return to the land of the living by possessing her.
I never thought about the professor's injuries much. If I have to give an answer, I'd say they were superficial cuts that will heal on their own. He might have gone to the hospital or something.
I was thinking and I am feeling slightly disappointed preventing the Apocalyptic Future in my Season 2. Even the Angels of Destiny has been wrong how a future would happened. Maybe I shouldn't have ended it so quickly.
Yeah, you are right. I want to write about the Final Battle, but it lacks direction. I know there is a story and the world knowing about the Magical Community. But it lacks. I watched through my DVD Boxes and it can't spark a idea.
You are writing three series what keeps you going?
it is different for all three series; for Chosen I have a clear storyline and direction in mind, for Legacy I have various stories that I try to combine and with Reloaded I have a general direction for the season, but I wait for inspiration for different episodes.
Do you think After Credits Scenes are annoying? I used to like After Credits Scenes, I have grown to dislike them. After you have finished watching the movie and the credits appear and then you believe the ending was good but you have missed it.
In the Marvel Movies and in the tv show, Thor is a god even by himself. But in Thor the Dark World, Thor's father said they are not gods and no different from being human at all. So Thor is just a guy with a hammer?
I was thinking about a idea about a Spin-Off Episode where Piper has temporary side effects from being a Vetala and now a witch again. It would be a good idea, it felt like she got away with it easy and without any consequence. What do you think? Does it sound like a bad idea?
I've started a new Chosen story, for now, I'm calling it "Past and Present Danger". Part of the story will focus on Violet, Nick and Nathan finding out more about their past from Gideon, while Billie and Duncan work with agent Murphy to stop the mayor's anti-magic plan.
By the way. I saw today the movie called The Huntsman: Winter's War was awesome and inspire me about my spin-off episodes.
I never thought Billie to be a cheater after all she had been through, though. The expression You never really know people. Doesn't the Elders already have a cure?
I have also a story about the virus I have remaking from my non existing third Season. Called Project: Rebirth which was mentioned. It's mostly Witch Hunters captured a Vetala at least they thought they did. When Piper was a Vetala and connected with their collective mind a mount of her knowledge was shared.
This isn't something like your Chosen? I don't wanna seem like I am ripping you off.
I was on Charmed Wiki and I was on Greg's page. I agree. if Piper did have Chris with Greg he would look the same. According from a friend Leo was meant to leave on P3 H20. I think Piper would have ended up with Greg. I feel like you about Dan.
I was thinking about rebooting Christy's life in a spin-off episode in my Season 2 it's a different timeline where Patty lives and Billie did change the past in Season 1. It would still be like it was shown on Season 8 but with some more difference. Do you think it would be a bad idea?
I thought about how I don't want to use what I did use in my Season 1.
The main reason why I couldn't make Season 3 work is that the World knows now about a hidden and unknown world exists.
I couldn't never make any sense why it should not cause All Hell Breaks Loose and Morality Bites. I had stories and new creatures but never able to make sense why people would not panic.
It sounds unrealistic to not care the effect it has been caused and it must make huge differences. Any idea what I can do to start writing my new stuff?
Phoebe couldn't just say do not fear the Magical Community because I am a witch. Logical reason would cause she would be hunted by F.B.I. or C.I.A. Homeland Security. They could not reveal that they worked with them.
What if I start a new season with something like this done by the Angels of Destiny to help the Mortal World see reason and understanding and of course still have their free will, and then a time jump maybe 2 or 3 years.
Buffyfan123 gave me advice like feel more realistic, maybe throw lines in here and there, or hints, e.g a tv in the background with a report on it, newspart reports or just random people in public talking to eachother
Maybe Phoebe could do followups with her column on the world reacting to magical beings , with reports, articles with people asking for advise etc.
No. Because they are theories it does not conflict with what would be the truth. I have a third theory which is Billie will try to change the future of her family. But it's unlikely since you have no intrest in that.
When I hear time travel I think about one of my favorite movies The Time Machine (2002)
Sucks to be them, they are lucky you write your chapters. They read free fanfiction. I did things with my series as like how I ended with Prue and Christy is alive etc. I am writing for my sake. I will never able to please everyone and I should not.
How does your country see on Finder's feed? Of course. There will be more to it and they aren't gonna just give you the money. When you find lost items and turn them over to the Police Station. Just for the sake of it be given the opportunity to a Finder's fee. And if you don't want it then that's up to you.
There is a law like that in Sweden, there is almost guarantee you could be given a Finder's fee. Of course there is more towards the law.
Well, some people lack the decency and some laws has to exist if it doesn't have to exist. I read that in a country a chef chopped off a part of his body cooked it and tries to sell it and he tells people. The cops could not arrest him because there were no laws and he didn't do anything illegal. [click here.]
Thanks. I was surprised that Violet ended up 2 years after she was born. Wasn't she given at birth like Violet said,
By the way, could you help me with a problem? I want to end the storyline with Vetalas. Either having them wiped out in a way or send them to a place where they will never come back. I can't decide which would look good. What do you think?
I never planned for Billie and Duncan o go back as well, this is personal for Violet and the twins. Besides, Billie and Duncan need to deal with the virus in the present. I wanted to focus on both plots at the same time.
I think it good. It fits to his astral projection. I have seen that you are changing the pictures.
I have a theory Violet could be a Part-Wizard, although. Wizards were hunted so the birth parents gave Violet up to protect her.
It does lacks why Gideon did keep it a secret and Leo didn't know. The Elders were stunned to see that Wizards are not wiped out the Charmed Ones meet Bowen. Have you thought maybe have a forum? I did start it on my wiki and started topics.
I don't think a forum would really add much on my wiki. If people have questions, they can use talk pages or the message wall.
Yeah, I figured some pages needed some updating with the pictures, but it's not always easy to find the right ones. Sure there are plenty of images of the actors, but that doesn't mean they always fit with the characters.
I wanted to incorporated Jean Grey similarities into Firestarters. I am not talking about her powers. I wanted to focus on the predatory similarities and the dual personalities of Jean Grey and the Dark Phoenix. What do you think? Would it sound too X-Men?
Well, if it is too similar depends on how you write it. I think it could be a very interesting story, as it has already been established that demonic powers make you more evil/agressive (as seen with Phoebe in witch wars) or how Cole went insane with his demonic powers.
Certain powers could influence personality. in fiction, people with fire-powers are often hotheaded or quick to anger. If someone is really powerful, those powers could bring out a darker personality.
Part of the idea I did get from watching the episode called Trial by Fire after I saw Grimm. After Nathaniel tried to strangle Christy he woke something inside her. It wasn't revealed I couldn't make it work.
You did make many good reasons, and to be honest I can't really deny. I will took another look at the episode. Shorten couple sentences and make some scenes more clearer and alter some scenes. I can't do that now because I am gonna sleep soon.
Make Piper and Phoebe sympathetic to Henry. You have given me a lot to think about.
Thanks. But should I focus much on the goverment? As I can't pretend like nothing has happened?
I was thinking in Charmed there were paradox to should have happened it still did not. Like in All Halliwell's Eve the future should have already been changed like in the Bare Witch Project.
Violet had already changed a part of the past by coming in contact with the twin's mother. And in the vision she could indirectly be the reason why the twins have no mother.
Like in Cat House, when the wedding cake stature was crushed in the past and Piper felt a sharp pain. And the pain it caused to Leo when Kit was killed.
And the demons in the past could have then targeted Violet as a two year old to kill the future version. But it killed her parents and making the adoptions un natural. Like in the three faces of Phoebe
I am confused on how come the mother is alive? Was she tricked like Grace is in Legacy. It seems weird she was alive after having the twins. Will be in the coming chapters? I thought the ex husband would had killed her.
I am rewritting my episode and I am glad that I had fixed most of the problems I had which it. But I have a little to done with it. But I am not too sure I would have done it if it wasn't for your honestly. Thanks.
Hi, I read the new episode. It seems to work better now. I liked the scene with Elana. Is she really dead or does Murphy just think she is? I also like the scene between Murphy and Phoebe. maybe you should consider having them hook up after all.
I am glad to hear. I thought do I need her and what could she be of use? She is dead, she wanted to escape and leaving them with that fate that felt wrong for her to escape. Maybe, Phoebe has given birth to her son. So maybe later on.
What do you think? Should Piper and Leo move to the island? I mean they don't have a home just yet and the island is pretty much as normal life she could get.
Well, no. The manor is destroyed and they can't live with Theodora all the time. And it's so Piper doesn't have to worry about demons showing up. And it would be horrible to rebuild the manor. And it shows what has been done to the Magical Community in general from the Witch Hunters.
I heard there was rumors of coming season(s) for Supernatural. I recall watching a show which could have been good which was called Point Pleasant and Elisabeth Harnois was in that show. There are many shows never ended with any grace and then crappy who get to continue.
I feel confused on how Dream Leaping was part Penny's Telepathy. I thought it was telepathic connection, because telepaths can enter and manipulate the thoughts and dreams are in a way just thoughts. I am looking forward to know what Violet is.
Great. I am instead taking time from my Season 3 to know where I will be going in my series. I am writting my spin-off called The Flames and the Humanity which is focus about the Jenkins Sisters from the last episode of Season 2.
You know I don't give out spoilers ;) All your questions will be answered when the episode is finished. The only question I can really answer now is the last. Yes, the Jeremy in the story is Jeremy Burns.
I thought she would be more younger as it was shown that Jeremy did target women in mid or late 20's like in the first episode when he killed Serena Fredrick and then he tried on Piper.
But on the picture she looks to be 35 to early 40. It wasn't shown why she choose to keep her warlock pregnancy. Was she forced or was she desperate to have children?
It felt weird when Jeremy said he did not kill Erin because she had their sons but as soon she was killed. He was like good riddance like if she lied about her age and trapped him in with her pregnancy.
I have read it. I am confused on why Violet was given a god like ability? I understand with her destiny. Is this a continunity error? Gideon did not know about the Chosen. The first chapter said that their each destinies were tied together as one united when they would be the Chosen? Isn't Violet's new destiny revoked?
I thought you did not like having characters with unlimited range? Billie and Wyatt lost their powers quick in the chapters? Billie drank a potion to be freed from Christy and have her soul go to the After Life.
Wyatt lost his powers because the twice blessed prophecy was false and Piper stabbed her son and prevent a nightmarish event. But they did not get their Projection.
Julian lost many but main power was Advanced Fire Throwing.
Doesn't it create an unblance in the Chosen with equal abilities with Billie and Duncan showed their new advancement it was barely mentioned. It felt weird he did not mention the names of her birth parents.
Violet's destiny is seperate from her being part of the Chosen.
I understand your point, but there is a major difference between Violet and the others. Wyatt, Billie and Julian could do whatever they wanted anytime they wanted. Their powers were basically unlimited.
Violet's ability is very strong, but it has a lot of limitations. She can't change the past whenever she wants, or she'll risk making things worse, like Gideon warned her about. Unlike the others, using her power has major consequences. For example, when they want back in time and altered things in this story, it resulted in the deaths of the twins. They used a spell this time, but Violet's power will have the same risks.
I was thinking writing out the Charmed Ones, as it feels forced keeping them. I want to be able to focus on my things. But like you said. I could keep Phoebe involved were she can try to intergrate both worlds as Advice Columnist. I wanted to focus about Avalon but it would be different from yours.
I mean I was looking at Ambrose and I was thinking about Smallville like Clark thought he was the last one and Arthur believed he was too. Then discover he was not. That whole Ancient Civilizations could be wiped out like they never existed.
I have wondered why does Ambrose have alternative alias Alaric Brewman?
Maybe you should give them. I mean sooner or later someone could get the best of them. As the demon said who took the casino owner that the Chosen are known for their power. They can't always carry potions and they could be crushed.
Like in the lab and the potions break and many potions could they carry around and if they are chasen? Could feel unpractical. Also leaving evidence of broken vials could trace back to the Chosen.
I understand and do agree on that. I found it a little anticlimactic how the Mayor just left. I thought she would had wanted to capture Billie or so. She will give Agent Murphy a hell by telling his superiors.
Hi. I was thinking what made you to consider adding Duncan to Chosen? He was only in one episode, Billie was mostly about the show, and then comes to one place would Violet exist? Christy was killed as the Spin-Off would not exist because of the negativty.
I originally wanted to add two original characters, but I wanted some more familar faces from the series. Then I realized there was an entire generation of young witches about Billie's age in Magic School. I looked at them and found Duncan the most interesting.
Well, the last episode was pretty focused on the sisters and the government, I'd try focusing on the other characters a bit. things are revatively peaceful at the moment, so maybe let them have a moment to relax and have fun?
I wanted to show you a series which has resemblance toward yours. It's called Long Blond and Billie is in a coven called Firmus Flavus. When Season 1 was done then Season 2 started but then the writer choose to end it after two episodes.
Yes, in my next episode Billie and Rathmere will appear. I will be focusing on what happened with Christy in the final episode of Season 2 and why she was in hospital and then fast forward to the present.
I wanted to ask this some time ago. Do you mind if I did a vague crossover episode with your Billie. It wouldn't make errors or anything because it would mostly be unofficiell.
I thought, how well does Rathmere know who Billie really is?
I thought, your Billie has unlikely feelings for and back from two guys who are according to history just hostile enemies, and my Billie is having hard being in love with a immortal wizard. I thought if my Billie could use a spell like Phoebe did if she should marry Cole.
But instead of bringing the Past and Future versions of herself it had different effect and switches their souls. "And they could walk a mile in each other's bodies." And leave each other opinions about their life choices.
It felt wrong to doing it without asked. What do you think? Like I said it would be vague. I wouldn't be going into specific information so it would not hurt the continunity.
Okay, that sounds alright. You're welcome to do that. I don't know about the switching part, as it wouldn't really fit my current storyline, but maybe the spell could just summon my version to your universe. That way they could interact in your series without it affecting mine.
In a sense. The angels care about the Grand Design, but there can be different outcomes. Look at the Ultimate Battle. It originally ended with only Piper and Billie surviving and the Angel was fine with that, as it didn't matter for the Grand Design.
Then Piper and Billie went back in time and changed things, so it ended the right way. The angel was fine with that as well. Violet would be different, as she could ensure that events have the best possible outcomes.
Yes, the Angels of Destiny care for the Grand Design, but they are neutral, even if they have unneutral opinions they are not allowed to use them. Sometimes, the good intentions can be the worst outcomes.
I am not doubting in Violet, but she is good and what she could consider to be the best outcomes could be the worst like Piper thought in the episode Cat House.
The Avatars had a good intentions making the world perfect, but the outcome was if people disagree, instant death row.
Cole in his messed up intention wanted Phoebe back, and when he changed the world, he did get everything he wanted with the outcome that Pheobe had hatred for him.
Although, it can be more dangerous even those above when good beings have good intentions with selfish inclinations. Like when Piper moved heaven and hell to save Leo or Wyatt even to a point of disregarding the lives of other people.
Like when Billie was close to find her sister and then Piper came and she was like. Yeah, your sister was gone for 15 years but Leo is more important so who cares if this demon knows where your sister is? Leo is more important.
But I am looking forward to see how she will handle that.
