READ THESE RULES. IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THEM, YOUR POST WILL BE DELETED.

The idea behind this is not to write a script as much as an individual scene.

The other script can keep going, though it has all but died.

SERIOUS, this time, guys.

This should be a fun little practice scriptwriting.

The way it will be different from the older versions is that this will have a plan to begin with and we will just write out dialogue.

The scenes in this thread will be unrelated. Let's plan on each scene taking around a page or two, give or take a bit.

BEGINNING: The person who begins each round/scene will setup characters and a situation. They will post a single line of dialogue/action as described in MIDDLE.
MIDDLE: Each post may contain dialogue and/or action-- Only 1 action and/or 1 line.
END: In addition to action/dialoge, this post will be ended with "CUT" at the end. MAKE IT A CLEAR AND LOGICAL ENDING FOR THE SCENE AS IF IT WERE A FULL SCRIPT.

Overall, the scene should feel real. Make the dialogue action fit and stick to a topic. Feel free to make the characters argue. They can make jokes. Imagine them as real people talking or interacting. BETTER YET, THINK OF SOMEONE YOU KNOW LIKE THEM AND ASK YOURSELF WHAT THEY WOULD DO/SAY.

LOCATION: Trailer inside a trailer park. This is the home of a nice, but poor family.
CHARACTERS: MOTHER, SON, SON'S FRIEND. (Feel free to name them as you post, but stick with those names from then on.)
SETUP: The seven year old son and his friend (and neighbor) have just returned from playing outside. His mother watches from the kitchen area as they hover over something they found. The kids are arguing over who the object belongs to.


FRIEND: I was the one who saw it, so it should be mine.

Son:  I had to come across it by feel, though.  I had to work harder since I can't see very well... therefore, I am much more qualified to take it.

Mother glares at friend; she realizes her son is being taken advantage of...

MOTHER: What is it that you found, son?

Friend looks dissapointed because Mother implied that Son found it, not him or even both of them.

MOTHER: But wait... Isn't it what you are carrying?

She reaches down to take a look/hold it, but the two boys run off with it.

They see masive chaos and destruction everywhere. Aliens are blowing up houses with their flying saucers and vaporizing people with their ray guns. Bill grabs a beer, pulls up an armchair, and proceeds to watch.
