So as none of you may know (excuse what a wreck I am) I have a story called Crossed Paths and well, I am thinking wayyy ahead…
I want to make two stories which are part of a series called “Call It Love” so Crossed Paths, The Critic, and Dynasty are within this trilogy
The first story is called The Critic (A Spin Off)
So this is Mindy’s (original MC) favourite movie about a woman who is a painter (M.D. Welles) who is extremely talented but has not received much acknowledgment for her work but her luck changes at one exhibition when the elusive Critic comes to visit this particular exhibition. The Critic’s identity is kept under wraps and has a beautiful taste in art.
The Critic’s real name is Eliot Meyers and he is a socialite as well as being very well known in high society. However, he resents his lavish lifestyle as he sees it as empty and pretentious so he finds a way to escape this by becoming a popular art critic. His opinions are greatly valued and he keeps to himself.
He falls for M.D. Welles and they have a beautiful time together (they go on little coffee dates but as M.D. realises who Eliot really is, she gets scared off). At the end, M.D. receives an offer to do commissioned art at a university by her friend’s mother who also offers further work for M.D. as well as getting to stay there. The Critic and M.D. parts ways but it is a bittersweet ending as M.D.'s luck has improved greatly but she severs ties with Eliot.
Eliot ends up going a downward spiral and he is the one narrating the story of what happened.
ANOTHER SPIN OFF
This is called Dynasty
So Mindy has a daughter called Rosa Andrianna Johnson and Rosa Andrianna is on the verge of becoming the sole owner of her father’s company. Rosa has big plans for the business but these plans are cut by a legally binding statement in her dying grandpa’s will that she must marry before her 28th birthday (she is 27) or else the company will be handed over to her cousin, Rodrick.
Rosa is extremely angry by this demand and would rather her not even own the company but her father begs her to maintain the company as he knows Rosa will follow his vision. Rosa has never been in love before but she encounters a few men who she begins to fall for.
Would love some feedback on this idea of a trilogy and would also love if you guys have any more ideas to write them out here.
Here is a poll so you can provide your thoughts (thanks Apes!)
So should I write…
- Dynasty ONLY
- The Critic ONLY
- BOTH (write a trilogy)
I will be making pilot episodes for BOTH stories - anybody willing to read them and tell me what they think, let me know please!
