'Uncharted': It's 'Gilligan's Island' Meets 'Lost'

I didn't blog on the finale for "Lost," though I fall very much into the "That was a good episode of TV, but it didn't change my life or anything" category.

For whatever reason, though, it got me thinking and got my creative juices flowing in really odd ways.
This is the result.
I wasn't exactly sure what to do with it, but as Sepinwall pointed out, if you write something, might as well put it up on the blog.

Well, it's 22 pages and I don't know if anybody feels like reading 22 pages on this blog (neatly embedded, I should add)... Let's just say that the subject line gives only a hint of what to expect.

If you follow through after the bump, I'll transport you to the world of... "Uncharted."

Click through...

And, before you continue, if the embedded version is too small (and it sure looks too small to me), you can click straight over to the Scribd version of the script here.

And forgive any typos. This was written fast...

[There's also appears to be a little "full-screen-y" button that'll make the doc blow up all "full-screen-y." Go figure.]

    i think it's good you can get your fever dreams down into script form. make this short and turn it loose on youtube. it'd go viral for sure.


  2. the people demand a sequel

    That was great! The Globetrotter Group...

  4. I'm contemplating another installment, but with several concerns...

    1)General laws of diminishing returns. First time funny. Second time silly. Third time a spanking. I think I remember that line from a Ramona Quimby book I read in childhood, but it remains true today. If the next 22 pages amuse nobody, it would be like the first 22 pages never happened...

    2)Is there a mandate? So far, only a couple calls for a sequel. Don't wanna write an undesired next installment.

    3)I'd have to answer some of the questions I set up in the first part. Oh heck, since I'm following a "Lost" blueprint, I don't have to do any such thing!

    Any opinions?

    My head says quit while you're ahead. My heart says my head should go jump in a lagoon.

    if people read my site, I would plug it there... but then, I would have to write content for people to read. So... I might plug it, but it's nothing too great. I have shown a few people and everyone I've talked to says that they would like to hear more of this story.

    I'm not sure a sequel is in order... but... perhaps a light serial? Short installments to keep people reading. I'm sure that if you started that, I'd follow your feed. I Know a couple of other people that would as well.

    Regardless... thanks for the read. It was quite enjoyable and I'd love to read more.
