    Ooooh! That was brilliant! Independent of Kermie? Sounds like you have a great lead up to the movie! Quick question tho, Will you bring it up to the current time of the movie then explore some more on the frog and pig relationship?:)

    I was actually going to go AU at some point--so the premise will be, what if Piggy had gotten her life together and it had only taken like--two years? Then when Kermit sees that she really can live without him, he'll finally realize that he can't live without her. I honestly believe if Miss Piggy hadn't been in Paris, he'd have caved a lot sooner. He doesn't really want to be without her, he just can't quite reconcile (rationally) being with someone who is so dramatic and brusque and bossy. He often seems embarrassed about being with her, not--as she assumes--because of her so much, but more because he is intensely private and she is definitely not. I think he really cares too much about what other people think.

    ooh- compelling update! Definitely liked the insight into Piggy's desire for children that's independent of her feelings for Kermit- very interesting indeed.

    Everyone gets stuck- it happens to the best of us. It'll pass and when it does please write more soon :)

    A dream independent of Kermit…the thought followed her all the way back to her luxurious apartment. Though many of her sessions had caused her to think long and hard about her actions in the past, this was the first one that really made her think about the future. Separating Kermit from her dreams of a family seemed too impossible.

    And yet…it would be nice to have someone there—someone to love who could love her back, without the twists and turns of a relationship, someone who did not expect her to forget all about Kermit—as if she could somehow flip a switch and turn it off. I’d have done it years ago. But motherhood, it was something she’d always assumed would just happen to her.

    But I’m not the kind of person that lets things happen—I make things happen. And…I want this.

    With that decided the rest seemed almost easy. She would have to choose an adoption agency, find a baby that was meant for her…and she wanted to raise her child in America—in Hollywood, in the home she had made for all her dreams.

    And if the frog doesn’t like it, well—that’s just too bad.


    Moving half-way around the world was not something that could be accomplished in the course of a morning, but Piggy could be very industrious when she wanted to, and besides, she had people. A few phone calls and the wheels were in motion—she was looking to transfer or perhaps change jobs, something in Hollywood that paid well and required a minimum amount of effort. Favors were called in, debts delicately alluded to, mutual acquaintances casually mentioned, and in less than a week Piggy had several tantalizing offers on her table.

    Finally, when everything was ready to go, down to the packed suitcase sitting by the door of her nearly empty apartment, she finally forced herself to pick up the phone and dial the number she’d long-ago memorized.


    Kermit bent over his desk, his fingers moving laboriously over the keyboard. He missed the old days, where scriptwriting could be done with good old-fashioned pen and paper. In the distance of the hallway the 80’s robot was pointedly vacuuming—the same patch of carpet he’d been working on for the last twenty minutes, Kermit couldn’t help but notice.

    He sighed. Of course he would love to take a break, maybe scarf down a dragonfly-and-jelly sandwich, but the script wasn’t going to write itself. He hopped off the chair and strode over to the door.

    “Thirty more minutes,” he said firmly, closing it with a definite thud.

    Vaguely he was aware of the telephone ringing and the vacuum shutting off. Good, he thought to himself, maybe now I can get some work done.

    ooh very interesting! I could definitely see Piggy wanting to adopt and telling off the frog- just try to stand in her way.

    Such a unique twist- definitely curious to see where this is going!

    Keep up the good work!

    Piggy twisted a heavy diamond ring on her finger as she waited. One…two…three rings. On the fourth, a voice with a heavy robotic accent answered. “Yello, you have reached the ‘the Frog’ residence. What’s the 411?”

    A bit confused, she answered, “Oh…um…yes, may I speak to Kermit, si vous plais?”

    “To what does this pertain?” the voice asked.

    Piggy blinked. “Oh, well—I guess, I just wanted to tell him that I will be coming into town tomorrow and—”

    The voice cut her off. “And to whom am I speaking?”

    Piggy drew herself up almost unconsciously. “This is Miss Pigathia calling from Paris, France and I am certain that Kermit—”

    “Thank-you, Mr. The Frog is currently at work, but I will totally record your message and relay it to him at his earliest convenience.”

    “Wait, I really need to—”

    “Thank you for your awesome call. Good-bye.”

    Piggy stared down at the cell phone in her hand, resisting the urge to scream. So, Kermit did not have time for her? Her calls were not important enough? “Well, we’ll just see about that,” Piggy growled, visions of an indifferent Kermit lounging in her head. There came a loud cracking sound and Piggy glanced down, surprised. The remains of her Blackberry fell from her clenched fist in a rain of expensive electronic bits. “Oops.”


    The house was deserted when she arrived at six, but she wasn’t deterred. Kermit usually worked late and she wasn’t really looking forward to him seeing her right after a cross-country flight. What she needed was a facial, a nap, and a complete redo on her make-up—unfortunately she only had a few hours, so it would have to be only two out of the three.

    She punched in her security code—she’d bet on, and now confirmed, that the frog never remembered to change it—and easily pig-handled her enormous pile of luggage into the house. It was everything she remembered it being, warm, inviting, decorative, but tasteful. She had put a lot of thought into this house, trying to make it everything Kermit had ever wanted. Despite the difficulty of keeping it clean and (mostly) insect-free, she’d installed a swamp-like natural pond in the back yard. The wide arched doorways and high ceilings were there to give him room to hop if he wanted. Why, she’d even commissioned paintings of all of the muppets and created a ‘Muppet Hall of Fame’ because she thought he’d get a kick out of it.

    “And maybe he did—after all, it still looks the same as when I finished it,” she thought, before she finally reached her bedroom.

    She wasn’t sure what she’d find when she reached for the doorknob. Would it be locked—a forbidden room too charged with emotion for Kermit to ever approach? Would it be swathed in white sheets, like ghosts haunting his memories? Maybe it would be empty, as if he had moved her out of his life for good. Or would it simply be dusty and ignored, the way she had sometimes felt when Kermit had turned to his film projects to escape his personal life?

    But it fulfilled none of her expectations. The room was warm and inviting, the light green silk that adorned the walls was as vibrant as ever. It was clean and ready—as if it had just been waiting for her. Even the bed was turned down, like she had left only this morning.

    In fact, it was the bed that decided her. It beckoned to her like an oasis in the desert; she could feel her eyelids getting heavier just looking at it. She quickly wheeled her luggage into the corner and began shucking off her clothes. She glanced down at her expensive French lingerie—worn just in case Kermit had happened to be home—then shrugged. It wouldn’t hurt it to sleep in it and there was no way she was digging into her suitcase just for a nightgown. She snuggled into the feather bed and sighed decadently. One more deep breath and she was out—so tired, she forgot to set her alarm. So tired, she didn’t notice the bed was turned down on the left side, not the right. So tired, she never saw the small red slippers next to the footboard or the crumpled red robe that had slipped off its hook onto the floor.

    This was a sweet, delicious update. Wow, Miss Piggy is definately going to be in for a bit of a shock when she wakes up. :eek: I really am interested to see how all this plays out.

    Yes, when she wakes up.

    I can hear the sweet mumbles, then the pause of realization, then my favorite part...

    ooh, love this!! Kermit is going to have a very lovely but aggravating surprise when he gets home- Kermit sleeps in Piggy's room in the house- that is so adorable!! Like 80's robot cameo and the rise he got out of Piggy.

    So much tension...I can't wait to read what happens next!!

    Keep up the good work!
