Haha Steve, that was a proper filthy laugh. Well in mate, great tribute to the wee man. It's got a really good laugh to page ratio too.

You going to expand it? The new adventures of Prince and his instruments of love?

I might expand a couple things I had to cut to make this fit. There was some additional dialogue and stuff, but nothing major. I think this originally topped out at 7 pages.

And... In case anyone was wondering -- this was written two days BEFORE Prince died! So, it wasn't meant to be an homage. Another writer, who wishes to remain anonymous, suggested what a fine superhero Prince might make. I took it from there. Had a lot of fun writing this.

Nice Job.
    I know I had asked whether or not this was written before he died.

Remind me not to have you write something about me, just in case you're like a death portent seer or something...


Please read my scripts:

I'm interested in reading animation, horror, sci fy, suspense, fantasy, and anything that is good.  I enjoy writing the same.  Looking to team with anyone!

Thanks

DanC - yeah, I remember you asking whether it was written before or after. When I found out he died my jaw dropped. I thought it was gonna kill this script, but enough folks seemed to like it. Funny how polarizing this one was.

Dustin - thanks mate! I've always felt that these challenges can bring out the best in us. I've had a clunker or two, but for the most part been very happy with the quality of my OWC's.

Chris - thanks! Glad it worked for you.

Another funny thing... The Ashley character was actually based on a real person. A number of years ago I was hanging with this girl who brought her friend over. We're having a few drinks and all when Prince comes on the radio. This girl goes on and on about how sexually charged Prince's music makes her feel. Suddenly, the look on her face changes, her eyes gloss over and she's literally squirming on the couch. All this as my friend and I exchange bemused glances. It was quite a moment in time.

So, did the girl go into ecstasy or have a seizure?  I got lost...

Actually, yeah, I had wondered when you wrote it.  It was kinda a fitting tribute to the man who was larger then life.  I didn't care for his later stuff, but, some of his earlier stuff was really good.  I think each person could find something they liked.  Even a metalhead like me could enjoy stuff like "Let's go Crazy" or Purple Rain...

I had wondered when you wrote it b/c he died like the last day before the deadline and my first thought was, if you wrote this after he died, wow, what a concept with very little time to write it.

It was a fun read.  

Can't believe he's gone.  Can't believe how much insanity follows his lack of a will.
