Brian was gay. He should have a husband, not a wife. Downright blasphemous. I stopped reading there.

Quoted from fionaman
Brian was gay.

There is no evidence in the 1985 film to support this. But you're still right. This bit of fan fic script is indeed blasphemous.

Because the pages are in HTML, it's tough to know the page numbers.

But there are a few things in John's script I noticed. First is that the script goes back to the film's model, The Big Chill (1983) It that film old college friends reunite at a funeral of one of their own. They all spend the weekend together in the home of one of the friends.

I find it very, very hard to believe that "The Breakfast Club" characters would do two of the following:

1- Reunite over the passing of the high school janitor [especially Bender. See #2]

2- Not keep in touch over the years. Especially Bender. See, it goes like this. The film was released (and takes place in) 1985. Bender says he moved to California in 1986.

The big question Breakfast Clubbers had in 1985 was not here will they be 25 years from then but rather what will they do the week after, specifically Monday Morning. They came from different class structures and peer groups. How do they relate to each other? Will they remain friends?

No. They all drifted apart and attend the funeral of the high school janitor. That's the setup. The first half of the script is set in and around the funeral home. Then to the house where they recap events of the 85 film, talk family, fears of getting old, (or turning into thir own parents) and get stale as cliched characters really fast. I suppose on one hand I can't fault the love letter to the fanbase to the film and other John Hughes films. I don't see stuff like that often. But it offers nothing new, and it doesn't even go good with nostalgia.

And class structure? They are pretty much on the same playing field here. There is hardly any contrast and re-introductions are awkward (and telling instead of showing). It also never ceases to amaze me how folks take the time to write fanfic but never take the time to remain true to the characters previously established. It boggles the mind.

Wouldn't it be more easier to actually have a 25 yr high school reunion? I mean if it was really needed?
