Back to the idea board.

Let The Magic Continue

Did you think we only had a single idea up our sleeves? *laughs*


Scene Idea

It is a late September evening with a fall breeze, scented with roses and lilacs (research fall flowers), that makes me cozy up to my favorite blanket. The sky reminds me of my past life, where the lights were minimal, and the atmosphere was littered with millions of twinkling stars. The moon was a bright crimson that cast its reflection over the gentle waves lapping at the foot of the beach. Beautiful I thought.

The breeze had begun to pick up which caused a certain mouthwatering aroma to fill my nose. I took a slow, deep breath and stood up.

"Something is wrong," I said as I took another whiff as to pinpoint the bleeder's location. In an instant, I was speeding in the direction of the accident.

They have been together (married) for ten years, but for the past few years, things have not been that great. Over the course of time, they realized that they just grew apart. But, in the course of those few years of growing apart, she became close to someone close to him. A brother, cousin, etc. She has no kids and is a Fiction Editor. Her husband is a surgeon. The guy she fell in love with is....?? (something that makes decent money).

Maybe a Stockbroker or dentist or a doctor that worked in the same building/hospital her husband performs his surgeries in

Another Scene Idea (Cleo thinking back or her past):

Growing up in a small town (need to pick one) everyone knew everyone's business. No wonder my parents divorced. Everyone worried about everyone else, and no respect for personal space. I used to ignore it when I was younger, but the older I get, the more I am seeing I am way more mature than the adults in our town.

Luke and Laura, the twins, went to live with Grandma when our parents split up. Mom and Dad didn't want them to hear the criticism the town had placed on our parents for splitting up, but in reality, it was the same criticism that made them split in the first place.

They wanted me to go live with them as well, but I wanted to be there to show my parents love and support they needed. Maybe I could get them back together if they focused on themselves instead of being worried about what the neighbors said.

Now, I am not exactly sure what had been said that was so horrible they couldn't work through it, but I do recall being bullied by the kids in my school for their divorce. See, divorce happens all over, but not in (Place name of town here).

((Still figuring out what could have been said to cause this)) (Figure I am going to add to this, or you and mention how she and Katherine meet and become friends.)

Scene Idea

"Kat!" Damen bellows as a sword slid right into my gut. I gasp as blood splats out from my mouth. I whip my hands down to the sword as my eyes shoot up to Damen's. I can feel the tears forming in my eyes as I slump to the ground.

Is this it? Is this how I go out? I thought.

"D-Damen…" I mutter.

"No, Katherine…" he says as he swoops to my side.

The enemies around us began to drop like flies. ((Damen is very upset, and his powers/abilities are starting to take over))

After 'Extremely Wicked' And 'The Stranger Beside Me,' We Now Understand The Criminal Mind Of Ted Bundy

1 hour and 50 minutes, plus 550 pages later.


Netflix recently released a movie in May called "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile" (2019), based on the life of Ted Bundy from his girlfriend's viewpoint.

In 1980, an author and former Seattle police officer, Ann Rule, published a book about her experience and personal, close friendship with Ted Bundy, called "The Stranger Beside Me."

These two sources together create an explosion of important information we either skim over or ignore about Ted Bundy. Watching this movie and reading this book can really open your eyes to who Ted Bundy really was. Yeah, there are the confession tapes on Netflix, too, but these other things can really tie it all into one big masterpiece of destruction.

I swear, it will blow your mind in different ways you never thought possible.

In the movie, "Extremely Wicked", Zac Efron stars as the infamous Ted Bundy, America's most notorious serial killer. He portrayed the murderer who kidnapped, killed, and raped 30 women or more. Personally, he made a great Ted Bundy, mannerisms and all. Lily Collins stars as Ted's girlfriend who was easily manipulated by Ted and believed that he was innocent for years.

The movie is told in the order that Liz, Ted's girlfriend, remembers.

In the book, "The Stranger Beside Me", Ann Rule writes about Ted Bundy, who used to be her old friend. They met while working at a crisis center in the state of Washington and were close ever since. Like Liz, Ann believed he was innocent and that he was incapable of these horrific crimes.

Ted Bundy had made both Liz and Ann fools. He easily manipulated and lied to both women about many things for years, his murders being "one" of them.

Okay, so we all know that Ted Bundy was absolutely guilty as hell and totally murdered those women. 30 women or more. He literally confessed to that, but researchers and authorities believe that number to be way higher.

But... you must know that the movie and the book tell two different stories that lead to the same ending. That's why it's so intriguing.

At one point, I couldn't stop watching the movie. Then, I bought Ann Rule's book and was completely attached to it. I couldn't put it down.

For me, Ted Bundy is interesting to me. Unlike most young girls today, I don't have a thing for him nor do I think he's cute or hot. I know that he used his charm and looks to lure women into his murderous trap. That's why it's so hard to understand why this movie and book created a new generation of women "falling in love" with Ted Bundy.

GROSS: He sodomized women with objects. He bludgeoned women with objects or his own hands. He was a necrophile. Look those up if you have not a clue of what they mean. That could change your mind about your own feelings for Ted Bundy.

After "Extremely Wicked" and "The Stranger Beside Me", I now understand the criminal mind of Ted Bundy. He was insane, but he was also smart, put together, educated, charming, and lots more. That's why I'm so interested in why his brain was the way it was.

The criminal mind is an interesting topic for me anyway, but for Ted Bundy, it was amazing to learn about.

I highly recommend both the movie and the book I quickly read in two weeks! If you want answers, they are there.
