One year ago, the pack went up to the ski lodge that the Hale family owns and got up to a bunch of teen shenanigans; pranks and harmless jokes… or at least they thought was harmless; when a prank takes a turn for the worst, the youngest of the Hale sisters - Cora - runs into the forests in the middle of the night after being humiliated by her friends and her sister - Laura - runs after her. After that, no-one sees them again; they’re missing presumed dead.
A year later, Derek (Josh) invites his friends back up to the ski lodge, but everything goes horribly wrong. The group splits up after a lot of heated arguments and Boyd (Mike) and Erica (Jessica) go down to the secluded cabin with the intention to hook up for the first time but they’re both too shy so they sit there patiently. At least they do until someone or something starts messing with them - throwing things through the window, breaking the fuse box, etc. Thinking it’s just one of the others pulling a prank on them, they ignore it. But whoever or whatever it is, grabs Erica and drags her through the shattered glass of the door. Boyd runs after her, following her screams and the trail of blood in the snow. He finds her laying on the top of an elevator shaft, bleeding and gasping for life. The wood holding her upright breaks and she falls into the mines.
Meanwhile, up at the lodge, Stiles (Sam) wants to get away from the drama and have a nice warm bath, but to do that he has to put the boiler on and he and Derek (Josh) try to have a serious conversation about what happened last year, but every time they do they have to deal with all the pranks the others are pulling on him.
Once done, he gets the hell out of there just as Allison (Ashley) finds a Ouija board and she, Scott (Chris) and Derek sit down and try to contact the spirits of Derek’s sisters. They ‘contact’ Laura (but whether it’s someone moving it or not is something that’s never clarified). Derek storms out and Scott follows him but he and Allison are knocked out by an intruder in the cabin.
As for the other characters: Jackson is Emily (Because he’s a bitch), Lydia is Matt (Because they’re a couple that either break up or don’t and she’s too good for him), and while there might not be a character to parallel Isaac, he’s there (possibly with Scott and Allison).
I could write out the whole story but I don’t want to spoil anything, just imagine Stiles walking around in nothing more than a towel, everyone trying to help Derek who’s losing his mind after the loss of his sisters and the lore of wendigoes.
And the best thing is, it would be a chose-your-own-adventure kind of story that reflected the butterfly effect
I think the hiatus was the best move for the band and their longevity. I think OT4 got as far as they could but were getting burnt out. Harry may have been the first one to call it what it was but (I believe) he must have made a compelling argument for the other 3 to agree. Particularly Louis. I don’t see Louis making a decision that wasn’t in the best interest of the band.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there are things all four of them can do as solo artists that they couldn’t do as a band. Do you think for one second MITAM didn’t deserve a Grammy nomination when Purpose got one? I don’t think so. But the boys now have a chance at the critical acclaim that people refused them. And when they come back together it’ll be a sight to see. I will be here, waiting, no matter how long it takes.
The thing I love most about this cast is how much they all care so much, and so passionately. About the characters, about the play itself, and about the audience. They love this thing that they’re a part of, and they’re constantly desperate to better it, and they really listen to our feedback and take it on board, and you can feel the love in their performances.
I spoke to Theo about how I felt proud of how far the cast has come over the last month, and said that probably sounded weird, but he said that actually no, we’re all on a journey together. The people who come back see the development over time, and we’re the only people who do apart from the cast and creatives, and he said he’s glad that we’re so invested in it, and that it means so much to us. And I think that seems to embody the spirit of this cast. Learning and growing and taking pride in and ownership of the play, and being glad that we’re still on board with them and that we still love it. But honestly, how could we not be on board with them when they produce performances like the one we saw today?
does anyone else…hate writing? like, really? i have all these little highlighted bits that mean “YOU MUST EDIT AND REWRITE THESE. THEY ARE NO GOOD YET.” and i look at them like….i know what you’re trying to say, past!me. i know. but i don’t know how to say it anymore than you did.
and then i just listen to sad music to get In The Mood and end up just being sad, and the writing does not get done because i’m too busy crying about best enemies, and this is just editing i’m not even up to the writing new shit yet lmao
I think my duo gets annoyed with my positivity on the rift. But I just can’t help but congratulate or praise someone on a good play, my team or not. Even if it’s a bard getting his q on us lol.
