What about the script idea? Anyone told it before.  I think now itīs a good time to send scripts to Lauren (and Alexis?). It seems Lauren thinks the story is finished. We should show her that we still can tell her a lot of stories we want to see (and show her that a two hour movie is not enough).

Ah, actually I sent Lauren and Alexis a fanfic script from my Season 8 episode before Lauren had the online chat thing so I'm assuming she hasn't read it yet. Hopefully she does because I really think it fits the show nicely and brings some ideas on how it could go without the chances of tarnishing the show even more.

AH, on another note is the Emmy ad fundraising thing fixed yet because I clicked on the link and saw the image of the campaign but I can't seem to be able to pull any options?

I will send my script this week to Lauren and Alexis.
Do we make a 22 episode 8th season or a 13 episode 8th season?
I personally think we should make a 22 episode 8th season. I think we deserve it. I think if we send one episode a week, thatīs enough. That would make 22 episodes in 22 weeks. What do you think? I really hope that Lauren and Alexis will read all the scripts.
But at least both will see that we really want more. Should we send the scripts to Amy, too?
I donīt know, I donīt want her to think that she should change her script. I just want her to come back for season 8. Smiley

Can you guys post links to your scripts please?

@Heather--how many daisies can we have now per person???(Or total, whichever.)
I would love to donate, but fundage is a little bit tight right now, so I'm attempting to recruit petitioners to sign it!

Thats all I have to say.

Yes, we did.
It has to do with copywright laws.
I would suggest NOT sending them.
It could get us into trouble.

Yes, I was just thinking the same thing. Actually I believe it was Rob who pointed it out a looooooooong time back. The actors/actresses can get into major trouble for that. Talk about lawsuits. If you send them, they go straight in the trash.

You are right.  And to emphasize this:

DO NOT SEND FANFIC TO LAUREN, ALEXIS OR ANYONE ELSE CONNECTED TO THE SHOW.

For legal reasons they CANNOT and WILL NOT read them.  They will likely be sorted OUT of any fanmail they receive by their assistants and will land in the trash.

@ ALSO, Lauren wasn't on The Today Show this morning (unless you count the Special K commercials  Wink  ).  While, of course, I'm not in any position to make excuses for her, there could be any number of reasons for her not being able to make it to the show, such as a family emergency, getting sick from donig so many promotional interviews for Evan Almighty in so short a period of time (probably non-stop since the 9th, in-between whatever movie she's doing -- I wouldn't be surprised if she got sick), being called back to any movie that she has shot or is shooting either for reshoots or because a call was rescheduled, or she couldn't get through the crowd of Bon Jovi fans to get to the studio or she was freaked out by all the Bon Jovi fans outside the studio.  Or else there's a fourth hour of Today that's not shown in my area that I don't know about.  Wink   Also, all guest appearances by all guests on all live shows are subject to change without notice.

Anyhoo, I'm setting my DVR to record The Today Show for the rest of this week juuuuuuuuuuuuust in case.

We passed 2500 on the signatures within the last 45 minutes or so!  5000 by the end of the month!

BTW, I'm challenging:  10,000 signatures by the end of Comic-Con and I'll deliver them myself to 4 offices (The CW, Warner Television, the management teams of Lauren and Alexis.

Plus, I bought something.  Divine knows what I bought, something coming soon.  Will not tease further. Grin

I understood that for the 7th season because it was actually taking place but since an eighth season has been cancelled it's doesn't make sense to me. We're just giving some creative ideas or ways the show could go... not telling them to do it that way. I just sent that one I wasn't intending on sending more than that... it won't matter if they think there's no season 8. Plus I sent a letter with it to explain my reasonings on why we need an eighth season. SO at least she could read the letter.

I'll be sending money for the dasies on Friday when I get my paycheck and I signed the petition plus I got some of my family members to sign it... I'm working on some more.

Is the cafepress stuff working now?

It doesn't matter that there isn't (yet) an eighth season -- as a matter of law, they cannot read any unsolicited scripts of any kind at any time, especially when it has to do with the show.  The only way somebody could slip a script (or a book) to anyone connected to the show is if it's a spec script or a book they've been commissioned to write adn the only way that they could do even that is if they're represented by an agent and the agent is the one that passes it along.

Heather's still working on the redesign and she's been a bit busy this week again.  When she gives me the go-ahead, I'll post the new information FAQ.

Rob,

Just curious... Do you have all your why there should be a Season 8 reasons listed together in a word document?  I had an idea, but maybe you have already done it.   Did you ever think about sending these reasons all together in a letter to Dawn, Lauren and Alexis, Amy and maybe some others?  Or put them together in an article about (for example) "The Top 100 Reasons Why Gilmore Girls Should have a Season 8"  may to be sent to fan magazines, etc.  Just a thought...Huh
