FANFIC PROJECT: Lost the Musical !

Postby BookhouseBoy on Wed Feb 11, 2009 6:58 am

Hey gang, I'm a big fan of spoof songs, so I thought it would be fun to start up a little project for the LOST fan community here to get together and share in. I'm thinking of...

LOST: The Musical

First off, I'm aware of the "Lost: The Musical" spoof that Jimmy Kimmel did about halfway through Season 2 (and if you aren't, check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TWwGbF5v-Y ). The idea for this project, with the benefit of a few more years of material is a lot bigger, hopefully, and a lot better.

Here's the concept. Following the plots of seasons 1 through 4, I will plot out 23 song spots, starting with the Pilot episode, and ending with the S4 Finale, and the Oceanic Six getting off the Island. The plot points in between are up to the people who nab each song spot. Each season premiere and finale episode will get its own solo song spot, since they tend to be where the most plot advancement happens. Then, in between them, each spot will in most cases cover 5 episodes. If you get one of those song slots, you can place your song in any one of those episodes, or cover a story that stretches through more than one of those episodes, your call. In your song, you can reference things that happen in previous (or even future) episodes, but your song should be mostly set in your episode range.

So, what does being assigned a song entail ? You will be responsible for coming up with, and writing the lyrics to, a song of any type that covers something, anything, from your particular episode(s). Remember to state who is singing the lyrics, and if you need, you can also add stage direction or dialogue leading up to the song. Your song can be funny, romantic, or just a character piece. Your song can move along an important story point, or just focus on something you feel your characters would want to sing about. Your song can cover one very specific moment, or cover a great deal of things that happen during your episode range. Your song can be completely original, or a spoof of an existing song of any type. Ideally, each major character will end up getting at least one song, or a vocal as part of an ensemble, but we can worry about missed characters later on.

Okay, now for the choosing of songs ! Here's how we will do this. Just choose three slots you're interested in covering, in order, #1, #2 and #3. An example entry could be as simple as this: LostFan42: #1 Song 4, #2 Song 8, #3 Song 15. If you don't number your requests, I will go by whatever order you list them.

Hopefully we will get enough people that this will allow all 23 slots to be covered. Then, at some future point, I will close the selection process, and begin assigning slots. In cases where more than one person has chosen a slot as their #1 spot, I will use a random generator to pick who gets that slot. People who don't get their #1 choice will then have their #2 choice become their #1 slot, and they will have some sort of priority. The goal is to make sure that both all song slots are filled, and everyone who signs up gets assigned at least one song. Please note, however that if you don't pick three slots, you will not be guaranteed a song. After that, it's possible some people might get two or three assignments, depending upon need, and how many people sign up for this crazy project !

At that point, there will then be a phase during which people will turn in their songs. If after this phase, people do not turn in songs for the slot they were assigned, a second phase will open up in which those slots will once again be up for grabs. As all this is going on, I will create a master thread in which the song entries will appear, in order of when they take place in the story. As needed, I will fill in dialogue between each song, to move the story from one story beat to the next. When we get to that phase, people can certainly submit their own ideas for transitional storytelling between the songs.

Okay, so those are the loose rules, subject to change, of course. And now... the song slots !

Well, for most people, participation will just be writing up some great lyrics. But, if you do want to really go beyond the bar and actually record music of your song... that would be, wow, awesome !
