OT - Moonlight [May. 23rd, 2008|06:42 am]
Edward and Giselle

phantombluerose
This is very off-topic but I'm trying to spread the word.   Last week CBS canceled the show "Moonlight" which is (in my opinion) one of the best, if not the best show on TV.  It is essentially about a male vampire (Mick St. John) who lives in LA and is a private investigator.   He was turned into a vampire against his will and during the course of the 55 years of being a undead he saves a little girl from his psycho ex-wife/sire who wanted to use the girl as a way to create their own little family.   So Mick saved the girl (Beth) and has watched over her since and meet again as she's investigating a murder for her job at an online news magazine.   And of course a romance starts to develop. 

It is well acted, they throw some unique twists into vampire lore (sunlight harms them but they can be out in it,stakes paralyze them instead of killing them, garlic and religious symbols don't do anything and they sleep in a freezer, not a coffin), and the writing while rough around the edges is still compelling with a lot of great humor.  Jason Dohring from Veronica Mars plays Josef, a 400 year old vampire who looks 25, and brings a lot of snark into the mix.  

So a bunch of fans have come together to try and convince another network to pick this show up.   I would greatly appreciate any help you would be willing to give.   Even just taking a minute to sign this petition.  Or head to the Moonlightline forums for lists of who to contact and how.  

Sorry for the interruption, so now lets get back to some Edward/Giselle love.

Home - A One-Shot [May. 2nd, 2008|09:32 pm]
Edward and Giselle

I posted this at fanfiction.net but I thought I would post it here too.   It's just a little one-shot set after the events of the movie.   It could be either Robert/Giselle or Edward/Giselle but of course I was picturing it occurring in Andalasia with our favorite couple.

Hi!  I've never really posted to this website before but a few of you may know me from fanfiction.net.  In any case, here are a few chapters of an Edselle fic that I wrote.  May turn out kind of funny - it's formatted for the other site.  Please be patient with me if I have made mistakes; again, not used to this site.  Thanks!

A Wish Come True - Final Two Chapters [Mar. 29th, 2008|09:21 pm]
Edward and Giselle

phantombluerose
Here are the final two chapters to my story "A Wish Come True". I do plan on doing a revision of the story so if you have feedback that would be great! If there is something about the characters that didn't fit, some aspect of the plot you want fleshed out, etc just let me know. Or if you notice a glaring error. Also if people are interested I've thought about doing some oneshots in the universe of this story, just giving glimpses into Edward and Giselle's life as well as Robert and Nancy's. So if you are interested (or have a specific scene you would like) please let me know.
Chapter 8Collapse )

Hello fellow Edward/Giselle shippers :) [Mar. 20th, 2008|09:37 pm]
Edward and Giselle

brunette_layers
I've written a oneshot with an Edward/Giselle pairing and I thought I would share :)

Title: Fire
Author: brunette_layers
Pairing:
Giselle/Edward, but can be read as Giselle/Robert if you try real hard :)
Rating: K+
Word Count: Approx. 650
Summary: Just  because Giselle looked like she was unconscious doesn't mean she wasn't aware of what was going on within and around her.
A/N: I'm a firm shipper of Giselle/Edward, simply because I believe they were meant to be together :)

A Wish Come True - Edward/Giselle fanfic [Mar. 18th, 2008|01:18 pm]
Edward and Giselle

phantombluerose
I decided to re-write the ending of the movie to make the story work better in my mind.   I tried to stay as close to the movie as possible just to see if I could make an Edward/Giselle pairing work with few changes.  It is still a work in progress but I'm hoping to have it finished within the next week or two.   You can read it at fanfiction.net.  I'm also putting the chapters I have done thus far under cuts.  I do plan on revising it once I finish so any comments or changes you would like to see would be appreciated.   I'm actually an economics student so I know writing stories is not my strong suit.

Why Giselle and Edward should have ended up together [Mar. 16th, 2008|11:23 am]
Edward and Giselle

phantombluerose
This has been rattling around in my head for awhile so I thought I would put it out there and see if people agree with it.  These are reasons why I think the Robert/Giselle pairing didn't work and why I think the Edward/Giselle pairing works better.

1.   The Robert/Giselle pairing is un-Disney.  In Disney movies the pairings are presented very early on in the story.   You know Simba and Nala will get together early on, you know Ariel and Eric will get together early on, Aladdin and Jasmine, etc.   You don't have people switching who they are in love with in Disney movies.   But that is what happened here.

2.  The interaction between characters.  They really show no reason why Giselle would want to be with Robert because he constantly puts her down and tries to make her be someone she isn't.   He tells her not to sing, tries to get her to stop believing Edward is coming for her,   He also refuses to believe anything she says for most of the story.   That isn't a healthy relationship.   Whereas Edward is willing to let her be whoever she wants to be.  She wants to go on a date?  Okay, he'll do that.   She wants to go to the ball?  Okay, he'll do that.   He's the only one who noticed something was wrong at the ball and he was more concerned with saving Giselle than being her True Love.

3.  It makes Giselle (and to a lesser extent Robert) look bad.  Giselle spent time and energy trying to get Robert and Nancy together.  She's the reason they were at the ball.  And yet Giselle wants to go to the ball - and Robert is really the only reason she would want that.   So now she is portrayed as being very cruel to push Robert towards Nancy but then go to the ball to pursue her feelings for Robert.   And Giselle is using Edward's feelings to get there.  Plus there is the fact that since Morgan is 6 and Robert and Nancy have been together for 5 years, Nancy would most likely be the closest thing to a mother Morgan has known.  And it would be hard, in my opinion, to all of a sudden lose that presence.

4.  The age difference.   While Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey are not that far apart in age, Giselle and Robert appear to be very far apart.  Giselle looks to be early 20s whereas Robert seems to be late 30s to early 40s.   That is a significant age gap and puts Giselle more in line to be Robert's daughter than his wife.   And that is in many ways how the relationship works out.  Robert is the one who is admonishing Giselle about her behavior and treating her like she doesn't know anything.   And Giselle acts more like a sister/babysitter with Morgan than that of a mother.  I can't see Giselle disciplining Morgan and for better or for worse a parent needs to do that.

5.  There is no clear 'message'.  The movie seems to say both that you can't love someone at first sight and that you can.   Edward and Giselle aren't meant for each other because they didn't really know each other and once they get to know each other the spark that led to their engagement apparently isn't there.   Yet Edward and Nancy have almost the same situation that Edward and Giselle had and that apparently works out?   Either it works or it doesn't but it should be consistent.

So those are my thoughts.   I really loved this movie until it moved to Robert/Giselle.   I'm not opposed to it, I just think that the way it was done didn't work.   Which is too bad because the beginning of the film when it was true to everything a Disney movie should be was wonderful.  Anyone else have any other reasons to add?
