    Don't worry Beau, there's already some great dialogue planned for my next story... but we'll get to that some other time. :).

    Meanwhile, I'll just... post the other deleted scene! This one comes... actually, this one is kind of self-explanatory. Was cut for length issues. Ready? Here we go!

    Deleted Scene 2

    Kermit got up and went to the theater very early Saturday morning, just like he had told the others he would. He wanted some time alone in the theater, just to go over a few things. The others had not been worried or surprised at this decision. It was opening night.

    He started with the stage. The set was very elaborate. It had been built on wheels, so that any one of three different locations could be used simply by turning the entire set to the correct scene. In the center of the set was a weeping willow that could be seen in almost every act. Kermit turned the set a little, then turned it back. He walked over and sat down under the weeping willow.

    The week had practically been solid rehearsals. Whatever time had been left was spent working out all sorts of issues, making last-minute changes, and talking to the press.

    Kermit sighed. The press. The questions never seemed to end. They had "usual" questions, like "What exactly is the status of your relationship with Miss Piggy? And do you date any other women?" Sometimes Kermit felt like even he didn't know the truth, so he answered those questions differently every time. Then there were the general "pre-show" questions, like "How long have you been working on this show? Do you think it will do well with any particular audience? Will it do well in general?" Those questions were fairly easy, especially since Kermit had been answering them for as long as he had been in show business. But there were new questions, too. Questions like, "Is it true that The Muppet Theater has been having financial issues? What about security problems? What about the rumors that a police officer was murdered in the theater? Do you feel responsable for that? What do you have to say to that officer's family? Is your theater dangerous?" Kermit had tried to be honest, and straighten out the rumors, but it was tiring. He had started telling reporters that, so long as Crazy Harry, The Great Gonzo, some monsters, and "a certain pig" were on the cast list, The Muppet Theater would always be somewhat dangerous.

    But there was no time to think about that now. It was opening night. The other Muppets would be getting there soon. Kermit got up and continued to examine the rest of the theater.

    GAH!!! I can't believe I wasn't here earlier to read your ending Lisa! I absolutely, positively, looooooved it!!! It was beautiful! I looooooved it!!! LOOOOOOVED IT!!! Ok, that ought to hold her off for a while before she realizes I haven't wrote the next chapter of Sometimes it's Better to Go yet...*runs away*

    EDIT: Oh, yeah, and I can't wait for your next story!!!

    Just stopping in to mark my place for when I come back to read the rest. Page 3, Chapter 9.

    Another great story Lisa. Finished it now, things in it I liked very much... Like for example the cameos by all the Muppeteers, though I'd kinda hope for the Muppeteer Muppets to make an appearance again. Kinda knew the shadowy figure was a woman after she executed that debilitating kick to the officer's groonies. Oh, and the number 316 does have some meaning, LMK if you wanna know it.

    OK, so that means I've read 5 of Lisa's stories so far, and 5 of Ryan's with only We Know It's Probably Magic to go.

    Lisa! Oh my goodness, I was just skimming this section, and I noticed I didn't review this story at all! I have to say that I think it was one of my favorites. So full of suspence and action, while still keeping that muppet humor and insanity. So great, and I too can't wait for another one!
  8. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Now this one might prove to be one of Lisa's best unsung works of literature. She mixed the sadness of having the Muppets homes, one of them at least, threatened by defiant vandalism with the uplifting moments of a beautiful letter delivered to Kermit to lift his state of true depression.

    37 mindblowingly great fanfictional feats.

    Okay, so I don't usually bump my own stories. And it's very rare for me to bump any completed story at all. You may have noticed that, and you may therefore be asking, "What on earth is Toga/ TogetherAgain/ Lisa/ <insert nickname of choice> doing bumping a story she wrote that she herself has not read since completing it?"

    Good question.

    And yes, it's true, I haven't read this story since I finished writing it, which, I am told, I must make a priority to rectify. (I will do so, really... Just as soon as I take care of all those OTHER priorities! :p)

    Anyway, the answer to that very good question is, in a word, Beauregard.

    In twenty-two words: Beau did something very awesome in regards to this story and I must share it with all of you! Please look here. http://youtube.com/watch?v=6mzw3CdCHeQ

    Wha huh? Sorry... But all I got was some terribly gripping music. Maybe it works better if you can actually watch it. Oh well,excited for the teaser. Bt what I want is... Wiat for it... Wait for it... Now!
    More story please! Yes, that means more Flippersteps! More Cheese! More of Heart of Gold! Come on Lisa, you have three great stories going... Update them to get them finished already! PLisa?

    Oh, I'm sorry Count...*hugs* It's a series of fast-cut clips of the Muppet theatre, curtains opening, Statler and Waldorf, Kermit glancing up at Miss Piggy, etc. Intercut with wording..."Summer 2007" "The Muppet Theatre..." "...is under attack." Then more fast cuts of Muppets looking up, dressing room doors slamming shut, Fozzie sighing, etc, which get faster and faster and suddenly stop and it says, "Summer in the Threatre. Coming Soon."

    It's basicly a teaser-trailer for the fan-fic.
  12. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Thanks Bo. But a teaser for a story that's already finished? Tring to get more people to read Lisa's works? If so, mayhaps the trailer should've been for Flippersteps instead... Maybe that'll get her to finally retake her grand historical Muppet epic. The one we all long for and ache to have updated. *Hint to you Ms. Sylum.
  13. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    No, that wasn't the idea. It was more a test of my editing skills, and just something I made as a fake trailer as if Summer in the Threatre were being made into a movie.
  14. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Mmm... OK then Bo. Just remember to nag Lisa for more of her current trio of stories though. Who knows, mayhaps you can use your newfound powers for good Muppet fanfic trailers, not evil instead.

    This feels a tiny bit like It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie. Kermit loses money and theater is threatened, gets depressed, and became mad at his friends.

    ^ I just found out my previous post was stupid, as Lisa already pointed out the similarity between the story and the movie. Aaaaaanyway, what a nice story. I wonder if I'll ever get tired of reading these.
  17. TogetherAgain

    TogetherAgain Well-Known Member

    No, no, not stupid at all! Just an accurate observation that, coincidentally, had already been stated. No harm in that. And I'm glad to see you're enjoying my old stories so much! One of these days, I'll get around to posting some newer things, too... Maybe eventually even finish something. (Of course, if I did finish something, I'd probably send myself and several other forum members into cardiac arrest at the shock of it...)
