Title: 00Carter
Post by: Rose on January 04, 2007, 05:11:51 PM
That last thread was getting prety long and a lot of info was getting buried. Okay, if you are interested in being part of the 00Carter agency, we need you to enter the lair (aka the yahoo group lol)

http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/00Carter/

So far we have many of the characters set up.

Mr. Lancybassy - Nick's secretary
K (Kevin)- Nick's Boss
Jay (AJ) - master/creator of disguises
Diamond Divine - a Carter girl who is an agent
Red Jewel - Carter girl who is a doctor at the agency
Brian L. - CIA agent who partners up with Nick
Professor Pearl - Scientist at the agency who creates Nick's gadgets and sometimes if the mission requires someone who can handle really high tech things, she goes along.
Sapphire Siren - Nick's contact...pret ty evil, but not fully. (Nick knows how to get info from her for the right price) and is also a singer in a nightclub.

Villans, we will discuss more in the yahoo group.

So far Julie is going to create the site, and made the flash video, and she volunteered to be the final beta reader (after the writers for said episode look it over).
Deanna is going to run to yahoo group.
Me, I'm just kind of the idea gal lol.
Of course, we need tons of writers, people well versed in Bond universe so we can intergrate some of it into 00Carter, (not all but some).

Okay, so who's in this? :)

I'm still in this jig too, right? Even though I've missed a whole day's worth of events? *puppy dog eyes*

I can donate website space if need be, Julie. I have a domain and haven't even used one gig of my space, lol

Thanks for the offer, but I have a ton of space too, so I have no problem hosting it on mine. :)   I had used up like 97% of my space, and then Geocities upgraded accounts to like 2 gigs of space, and now I've only used up 3% LOL.  It's awesome.

Once we start writing, everyone contributes. :)

And if it makes you feel better, I felt useless until I was in charge of the Yahoo group.

I've joined. :) Honestly, I don't think I'll be able to do much writing at all... I'm thinking I would like to help more with ideas, being a beta-reader, seeing if it sounds good, etc. More of a fan fic advisor.

But it goes without saying I would still love to write a torture scene. XD

Hey, does anyone have a good mic?  Could you record Nick saying his name from the MySpace video for my flash?  I can do it myself, but not till tomorrow cause the only mic is at my mom's computer, which is right next to her bedroom and will wake my parents up if I try to do it now.  I'd get it in the flash and finish the thing if I could get it tonight.  All I need is just Nick saying "Nick Carter"... I can manipulate it and put it in with the music myself.  And if you need the video, I've got it.

Villain suggestion:  If ever we need a thief of... anything... we should create a villainess based on Tanja.

I can ask my husband... I know we have a mic but I don't know how goos it is. I'll beg the man and maybe he'll help me. (he does owe me one)  ;)


Title: Re: 00Carter

That would be awesome!!  It's okay if the quality isn't perfect; as long as it's understandable, fine with me LOL.  I have a good mic on my webcam, but it's plugged into my mom's computer, and it's too much of a bitch to get unplugged from the back of the computer to move it to mine.

hey! just kidding about that whole mic thing... I didn't know ours is broken (didn't survive the move I guess ???

He also said he thinks there's a way to pull the audio from the clip straight into flash he just doesn't know how to do it. (he's a real big help tonight.) unfortuantely he's an animator, not a sound guy so he's not as fimilar with that part of the program. He's more an after affects guy :P

sorry, I tried... :)

LMAO we should.  All the other villains will have these cool villanous names, and she'll just be... Tanja.  Since she changes all our female characters' names to "Tanja" anyway.  She'd be happy we used her name.

By the way, for torture scenes... one great form of torture I've discovered is  to lock someone in a room and play the Kidz Bop version of "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" by Eiffel 65 on repeat.  It's pretty much the crappiest song ever (not the original, just the Kidz Bop version).


Title: Re: 00Carter

lol I know I'm a little late getting in on this, but as far as I can tell(since I'm feeling really lazy and don't wanna read though all the pages of these threads lol) you guys are working on a Bond-type fic with the Carters(and various other characters)?

*waits for the "no duh"*

I'd be happy to help in any way I can, considering I don't know much about James Bond movies(this may shock you, but I've never seen ANY of the Bond movies. Tons of others, no Bond ones.).

It sounds like a great idea and like I said I'd be happy to help in any way!


Title: Re: 00Carter
Post by: DragonStar on January 05, 2007, 03:49:48 PM
Oh, and I have a voice recorder I can use later to record Nick saying his name and upload to my computer for you guys if you haven't gotten it yet.

It'll have to wait a bit, though, 'cause my room seriously needs to be cleaned.

LOL you're not alone in the not seeing Bond movies. But, although we are taking some things from the Bond world, we're definitely putting Nick in his own world with 00Carter. And we definitely can use all the writers we can get :) So go ahead an join the yahoo group I posted up, thats where we're getting more organized :)

Just wanted to say, I'm on the 00Carter site right now cause I'm bored out of my mind, and I soooo can't wait for the next episode to be done.  Also, I'm rockin' out to Mr. Roboto LOL.

I think it works best when we're making fun of someone who will most likely never read this board, i.e. suicide girl on LD or the Oreos writers.

We are horrible, horrible people. :D

The "We Hate Oreos" thread?  We could do it in code... say stuff like, "We hate Oreos; they're so sickeningly sweet and lack any substance or nutritional value.  Sandwich cookies are so cliched anyway.  And where do they get off selling merchandise?  They're just... um, cookies!  Yeah, cookies!"


Title: Re: 00Carter
Post by: RokofAges75 on February 02, 2008, 08:15:49 PM
Or we should just start using the word Hydrox instead of Oreos... Hydrox were the original chocolate sandwich cookies.  Take that, Oreo!

I don't really like either of them. You know what I think is great, Lucky Charms. There's so many diverse marshmallows, yet they all come together to form one great cereal. My favorites are the clovers. I think everyone basically agrees clovers are the most popular. lol

But one of my friends likes to put the clovers in their Oreo ccereal and I'm lie, really? Clovers and oreos don't go at all.

But, what were the song the Tatu girls supposed to sing? And do you have a copy of it I could hear? lol not that I need to know the song to write my part, I'm just curious.

I am resurrecting a thread last updated in 2008 to continue the 00Carter revival conversation, so we don't completely hijack the writing thread.  Seemed like a better idea than starting a brand new thread, since we already have several devoted to 00Carter, much to the annoyance of others here I'm sure.


Title: Re: 00Carter
Post by: RokofAges75 on January 04, 2021, 09:31:37 PM
I could definitely do a reread earlier than a jump in. I think end of May would be perfect for me for starting unless the reread let to something really concrete/electric. I'd leave the reread deciding to Rose, because I could do it most any weekend after I finish my PBox edit, but not sure if she prefers certain days over others.

Same here.  If Rose is on board, it would be fun to do a reread and have some conversations to refresh our memory and do some planning so that when we're ready to start writing, we're on the same page.  I could do that any time.  Weekends are obviously best for me too, but depending on what nights Rose has off, I could do like a random Thursday night or something too as long as it doesn't go too late.

Yes, you are probably very right.  Plus, if we do end up doing a live reading/chat, I would love to be able to drink while we do that LOL.  Or at least consume copious amounts of caffeine like I used to.  Hopefully we can find a Friday or Saturday night that Rose has off.

I don't think this is linked anywhere on the actual 00Carter website, but I found the moonwalking penguin animation! http://www.dreamers-sanctuary.com/00carter/moonwalkingpenguin.html  You'll have to enable Flash to get it to play.

Post by: Rose on January 04, 2021, 10:51:12 PM
I am absolutely on board though I'd have to find a day I'm off that works for you guys LOL.

Yeah, I think we just need to go into it without any big expectations and the understanding that we're all adults with real life responsibiliti es and other projects that we also want to make time for.  I think what allowed Rose and me to finally finish Song for the Undead, even though it took us like 7 years, was that we were more patient with each other than we were with 00Carter.  We started off strong with Undead, but then real life got in the way for both of us, and we slowed down.  We both wrote other stories in the meantime, but we kept coming back to Undead with the understanding that we were going to finish it eventually.  If we have the same mindset for 00Carter, I think it will help.

^Couldn't do the guilt again, so same! (I mean this in a positive way, but I'm realizing it comes off fairly negative. I'm trying to reframe it as learning and growing, I guess is more what I mean.)

How's this plan sound: I finish my PBox edit (in the next few weeks, but I won't commit to a third project before that's finished), then you look at your calendar and send us a doodle poll with the days that are good for you and we can pick that way.

I thought of 00Carter the other day when Jeopardy had a Winter Olympic Mascots category, and there was a clue about Quatchi!  It was what type of mythical creature he was, and I remembered he was the Sasquatch!

He legitimately still makes me laugh. My desk is so random between him, the turtle, my penguin, the wax figures, and Ninja Nick. OMG TaTu will forever make me think of Ice Ice Baby. That episode was hilarious and so off the wall. 00Carter was basically me living my dream in including every music reference we possibly could LOL. I have story notes open (and focus failing if anyone can't tell) for three stories, one of them being 00Carter and dude, the next episode was our Mr. Body Beautiful one LOL. I'm even sadder now we never finished it.

Continuing this conversation from the other thread here so we don't take it over with 00Carter talk.  I feel like Ice Ice Baby is where 00Carter got good.  The first three episodes were a lot of intro and back story, but this is where we got into the heart of it.

I hope we still can finish Mr. Body Beautiful and then some!  I really wanna get to Platypussy Galore LOL.

Of course, by the time we would get to her in 20 years, no one would even remember who she was LOL.  Just like we have that whole episode built around "Bringing Sexi back" in reference to a song that was new and hip when we planned it and is now like 15 years old.

Least the Parisite one can still be semi-relevant. Honestly I'm here for letting Sexi go to the wayside and bringing in "The Dream" and have a running joke that everyone keeps forgetting who she is.

Okay hear me out. I like the idea of them having a sort of time machine that throws them back and in the end makes everyone involved forget them...except for Fans. Something in their hideout protected them from the effects essentially. Maybe the alien tech that gets stolen eventually - I forget when I'd have to check. So Howie seeks them out after all the stuff they did and recruits them and promises that someday EVERYONE will know their names again.

The alien storyline starts with the Playboy Bunny episode (Bunnies in Black).  I believe Hugh Hefner was actually an alien in disguise, a la Men in Black, and I think they got the alien tech from the Playboy Mansion.  I know there is/was more planned for that, but I don't remember all the specifics.  We have everything written down though.

That too, though originally I was trying to figure out why Dr. Rough doesn't forget Dream. Maybe Melissa's father is a failed inventor. He created the time machine which doesn't function properly when they try to use it to eliminate 00Carter, and sends everyone into the past instead of just Dream. Sexi eventually gets abandoned in the past, doomed to relive everything.

I missed trying to tie crazy ideas together LOL.

Okay so Dream attack HimTak, maybe they're a girl group from a past mission of Nick's, Melissa of course being Nick's way in who got forgotten once the mission was over. She thought she'd get a relationship and got nothing. They  have hated him ever since and want to bring down Nick by erasing him from existance. So Melissa gets the technology from her failed father. And it sends everyone back in time. Perhaps Howie and Sexi were meeting with Drums (who has updates from Styx) outside of Vegas (how ironic Nick lives here now since HimTak is based in NV lol) when the whole city gets thrown back in time. They also got the wrong year. They aimed for 1980 and got 2006. Eventually they're defeated back  Howie helps bring them back into the present, being a proper genius though it costs him Sexi for some reason. Everyone has forgotten them now except for Howie/Drums and he tells them to come join him as he'll one day make sure everyone knows their name once more.

I mean even though it's an AU I'd be here for keeping them as a girl group cause I dig the motivation from her father.

Yeah, Aaron could totally be a member of FANS or Melissa's right hand man now.

Absolutely. Scorned by his more successful brother.

Definitely brought in by Melissa in a later episode.

Yes, true!  I'm just happy we won't have to do the old "Rose compiles all the random ideas from our chats and then sends them to me to be uploaded and sent out to the Yahoo Group" routine just to get everyone on the same page.  Google Docs is a godsend for collaborators.

Never envied you two for that routine.

Yeah, we need to keep Dr. Rough around.  Even if they defeat him, he can be like Voldemort in Books 1-4, just biding his time until he can regain power.

Haha. He's just a diamond in the rough anyway.

I should go to bed too.  It's 3 a.m. here, and tomorrow's my last day of break before I have to get back on school schedule.  Nice brainstorming with you both!!

LOL I didn't think so, judging by how late you were up talking to us!  I will have to drug myself with melatonin or Benadryl to get myself to go to sleep at a reasonable time tonight.  At least tomorrow is a teacher in-service day, so we don't have students until Thursday.  It's nice to ease us back in to the routine.

I've definitely been in a bout of insomnia more than usual. Coffee is basically my life blood right now, much more than usual!

If I catch you lurking on here in the wee hours, I will tell you to go to bed for sure!  But it's good it's just other teachers and not the kids just yet. I wish I'd had that day between.


Title: Re: 00Carter
Post by: RokofAges75 on January 05, 2021, 07:54:59 PM
Yes, please do! LOL

We started doing this a few years ago, and it's been amazing.  Gives us a chance to plan for the rest of the week without having to do it before or during break.


Title: Re: 00Carter
Post by: nicksgal on January 05, 2021, 08:14:15 PM
I always hated having to plan during breaks to be ready. And it's doubly nice of them to give you two more days of break at the beginning of the week before the inservice day. And now you get to see each of your groups once, so it's not lopsided!


Title: Re: 00Carter
Post by: RokofAges75 on January 05, 2021, 08:35:22 PM
Yep, so the kids will get eased in to it too.  It's perfect.  We had school the Monday and Tuesday before Christmas when a lot of districts were already on break, so that's why we got this Monday and Tuesday off.

Ours is about a week and a half? It depends on exactly where the holidays fall. I guess I preferred this to the past couple years when we've come back on a Friday, then had a weekend.

Post by: RokofAges75 on January 05, 2021, 10:44:31 PM
LOL I guess that's one way to ease you in, but it's a little weird to come back for just one day.  I like coming back mid-week so it's a short week, but still more than one day.

I'm fine with three or four days, once it creeps down to one or two days, I feel like it's useless at the beginning of a semester or the end.

Also, this is your hour warning to get your beauty rest soon. I know I need at least six hours to be semi-functioning. Not sure how long your commute is or what your start time is and don't need details, but I'm guessing here.

LOL I know, I told myself 11 p.m. was my cutoff, and it's 11:07.  I did take my melatonin, so I will be going to bed shortly.  I told myself I can stay up a little later than usual and keep watching CNN because it's history - and also I don't have to be at work until half an hour later than my usual time, since we have no students.  Thanks for the warning!  If you see me still on here at 10 p.m. your time (midnight mine), you can start yelling at me.

That was my plan, at your midnight I was going to call you out. But I figured a gentle warning would be a good start. A half hour later than usual? Don't push it, but I always push those days. Like, well I can stay up just a tiny bit later and suddenly it's the dead of night.

Just throwing out there that you should be in bed now, Julie. Haven't checked if you're on yet, but I'm giving you a preemptive chance to do so.

Not bad!  I was hoping to go to bed early tonight because I'm tired, but once again, I will probably be up watching CNN too late.  Hopefully we can catch up on sleep this weekend.

I was exhausted at 8pm yesterday, but pushed through my edit for the evening. Then you all came on and then suddenly I was wide awake for hours... Let's encourage each other to go to bed early(ish) today!

I didn't used to, but when I started writing again, I started getting it again. It's like my brain went, "Ah, writing! Sleep is for the weak."

Although this week's cursory edit is actually going fairly quickly. I haven't changed much of anything. One chapter to go and then I've gotta finalize my description of the castle before I can update!

What year did I make you the Drums doll?  Has Dee seen that?

So I apparently missed this one in the Writing Thread the first time, but I laughed so hard, especially at Drums and MJ on the ice because it looked like they were going for a little sledding trip.

Title: Re: 00Carter
Post by: RokofAges75 on January 09, 2021, 03:16:37 PM
Not sure!  The only other one I've made was for Steph (Carter-Orange), who wrote an NKOTBSB survival story with a particularly memorable scene where Nick has to pull bot fly larvae out of Jordan Knight's festering head wound.  So I bought a Jordan doll off Ebay and turned him into "Bot Fly Jordan."

Ew! Festering head wounds covered in flies! Gag!

I love that you play with them first. Broken Nick tending to someone else's wounds, haha.

It's probably a blessing for all of us that the only toy-route the Boys went were the BK ones.
