This became of the heartbreak-fueled demotrack on soundcloud and I am really happy with how it turned out. The spoken parts are actual diary entries concerned with the person in question and they’re incredibly embarassing, of course.
Text:When Gerard talked about non-binary and transgender people at the show I went to I started crying. I assumed I was just emotional bc I was close to tears a couple of other times that night but that was the only time I actually cried. I told my mum and she asked why and I said I didn’t know. But now I’ve realised I’m non-binary and he made me realise that. I’m so glad he speaks out about these issues bc it helps people directly, like me and I’m sure many others. He uses his influence for goodz
Thank you for those posts about Dan, I really needed it today, and it means a lot to me. I've always looked up to Dan so much for so many reasons, and a big one has always been how happy he seems now compared to a few years ago. It encourages me to keep going, because it gets me to think "if Dan can do it, I can do it too"
!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was amazing!!! I've been here since the beginning and I'm so glad I stayed. I love everything about this story and I'm so thankful for all the effort and time you've put into it over the last couple months. I've become so attached to these (not even canon) fictional characters. Really, really good job!!!!!!! (that epilogue was perfect A+)
Thank you so much!!! Like really, REALLY. It’s been the overwhelming flood of love and support that’s kept me so motivated to do this. There were some chapters that I went into knowing exactly what to do and getting it all out in a single draft, and there were chapters that really had be doubting myself and the story and everything. It definitely would have been overall easier to throw in the towel halfway through and be content with knowing the ending in my head, but it’s been so much more rewarding to get it all out in writing. I’m so thankful for all the support you guys have no idea

I’ve read this article from L’Adige (the article Madalina posted a picture of on her instagram earlier today) and found out a few things about the movie:
The story is based on a real story that took place in 1887 about a woman who had the most beautiful night of her life in a cabin in Trentino and wished for that night to be remembered.
Following that night, the woman gave birth to a son who later died during the war while he was in his twenties. But the memory of the night she conceived him stayed with her until her death in 1977 and she passed the story on to a lawyer along with her last wish : to go back to that cabin, fix it and put a plate on it remembering the night that was the best event in her life. He would then inaugurate the place and throw a huge party that would include everyone from the neighbouring towns. The testament was also clear about it being an event that would take place every year.
The journal “L’Adige” wrote about the story and a journalist loved it so much that he contacted Barry Morrow about it. The screenwriter then decided to turn the story into a movie, with the initial title “The Cottage of Love”.
After further thinking, Morrow considered the singularity of the event described in the story and immediately thought about centering the movie on a mountain cabin in which anyone would fall in love with someone or something upon entering it. Which then brought the title “Condemned to love”.
Someone else initially took on the project in 1994 but with no positive feedback, it died.
(Side note: a lot of people in the tags are confused because the story has nothing to do with the original description of the movie we got. This article only talks about the original story upon which the movie is based, not the actual movie. I’m guessing the whole fashion designer being kidnapped by the italian mafia and taken to the italian mountains is still happening. But maybe with a twist on the cabin he’s held hostage in. It’s most likely the cabin from the original story which would explain why Darren’s character falls in love with Madalina’s character, or something like that.)
