i don’t know if anyone actually knows this but there is this thing where you write a script on Parks and Rec (or any other WB show) and submit it to them and if you qualify, you get to attend to their Writer’s Workshop and the alumni are chosen as writers for various WB shows.
Geoff tagged me in this question thingy so that’s what’s going on here.
1. The known world has collapsed and you’re basically alone in the world except for the occasional sighting of another human. What do you spend your time doing? (Aside from basic survival)
Geoff, you need to be more specific! Do we have electricity and stuff? If we do, I’d watch a lot of tv. I’d catch up with all the tv shows because I wouldn’t have to go school or live up to any other kind of thing society expects me to. If not I’d read, mostly, I think.
2. What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you?
Few years ago I was at a party, and it was at my friends house. The weird thing, though, is that the steps that lead to the house where not all of the same size. They got smaller as you went down. But Anna here did not notice. She got a marshamellow, and when she was going downstairs, she stepped in nothing (because the stupid step was not there) and she fell. She rolled down in the grass in front of everyone. At least I didn’t drop the damn marshmallow.
3. How many times a day do you think about sex?
I have no idea? Maybe I should count some day, but I’m too lazy to do that.
4. What would you say is the thing you’re most talented at?
Sit in front of my computer for a whole day and not feel like crap.
(I’d like to say writing, but I genuinely don’t know how talented I am in that. I am not really talented in anything else, though, so there’s hope)
5. What’s a show you could watch on loop for the rest of eternity?
Parks and Recreation or TCGS.
6. How long has it been since your last, good cry?
6 days. Last week Leslie Knope (main character from Parks) found out she’s gonna have triplets, so naturally, I had a major freak out and cried for a few hours and then more the next day.
7. What would you say interests you more out of life so far: Knowledge, Love, Career.
Knowledge. There are so many things out there that you can’t run out, which happens with the other two. I feel bad for not saying love, though, because loving yourseld and having people that support and love you is super important. Ugh, I’m garbage.
8. You’re on death row and you’ve been told it’s time for your final meal, what is it?
Kale and tomato salad, small baked potatoes, rice, and a cookie for dessert. Okay, 10 cookies.
9. Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?
I just googled Carmen Sandiego.
10. You just got a hot, new, fresh pizza and brought it home. Right as you’re about to set it onto the dinner table, you drop it face down onto the ground. WHAT DO YOU DO?!
I shout something really loud so my dog won’t try to come near the pizza, get a plate, try to put it under the pizza so it won’t fall apart completely. Then I clean the floor and eat the dirty, delicious pizza.
TCGS MAKES MY LIFE SO MUCH BETTER AND I LOVE IT A LOT
Am I jammin or am I cryin we just don’t know
If you’re doin’ it right it’s both
So, here it’s how it goes:
For ten years, Steve Wyatt was employed at the Philadelphia Police Department as a beat cop. At some point he gave up his career in authority and began a PI business. He moved to Partridge, Minnesota, where he met Julia.
They get married and have three kids: Henry, Ben and Stephanie.
1983: Steve and Julia get divorced. The kids live with Julia (because Ben is terrified of his father) but Stephanie spends some time with Steve in Mexico, where he was starting his “business”. There she learns how to speak spanish.
1990: Stephanie joins the FBI (and changes her name to Monica Reyes).
1993: Ben is elected mayor. He creates Ice Town, which leads the town into bankruptcy, and gets impeached. In the same year, Stephanie (Monica) is assigned to investigate John Doggett’s son’s case.
After the teen mayor shame, Ben leaves Partridge and goes to college.
1998: Julia leaves Partridge and goes to Washington, DC. There she works at a bar (and has to listen to Mulder complain about how miserable his life is).
She goes back to Partridge shortly after that.
2001: Stephanie (Monica) is contacted by Agent Doggett. She meets Scully and Mulder, and sometime later is assigned to work on the x-files.
2010: After working as a state auditor for years, Ben decides to stay in Pawnee, IN, the greatest town in the world.
2012: After years of working in Gus’ meth operation and then with Walt and Jesse, Steve (Mike) fakes his own death and goes back to Partridge. He starts dating Ulani.
Doggett disappears while investigating a case and Stephanie goes back to Partridge and takes her old name to stay under the radar.
Henry has a daughter.
2013: Ben and Leslie get engaged. Julia, Steve and Ulani attend the engagement party.
Ben and Leslie get married.
Ben and Leslie go to Partridge and visit Stephanie. Little is known about what happened to her partner or her job.
August 2013: Ben still doesn’t know anything about any of this.
