I really, really, really want to read this novel.

Maybe Moodysson could make a film as well. That's something I'd like to see, especially with Elin and Agnes leading Snapsie to the fabled lesbisk, underground city of El Dorado.

Thanks guys *:)*

As always I have too many ideas chasing my limited little talent here. Plus as always I would need to go and stay in Sweden to get the atmosphere right to bring this to fruition, and that ain't gonna happen. *:|*

Incidentally the myth of ''Chako Paul'' is real, if not (sadly :x ) true. Chinese newspapers really did run with the rumor that there is a hidden female only community of 25,000 in northern Sweden. And it is true that Swedish tourist websites crashed under the weight of oversexed Chinese guys with more money than sense wanting to find it. Typically the Swedish seeking to cash in on the potential only sorta ''half-denied'' the myth. A pity, I could have made a killing as a tour guide there. Give me your wad and I'll kick your ass :D .

My personal theory is that it was an internet overextension of the myth of the Aurora Borealis. In mythology, to some on the Pacific rim (I use that word advisedly :lol: ) It is associated with aphrodisiac properties.

Now you have to ask yourself, is this Snapsie gone loco :T ? or is it true? Make your mind up. If you say false and it's true you pay for my all-expenses trip to Sweden. If it's false I pay for your all-expenses trip to Sweden. Consolation prize is an all-expenses trip to my stable block and more deranged horse girls than you can wave a stick at :r

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chako_Paul_City

So are ya feelin' lucky punk? :lol:

OK. You like to live dangerously? Double or quits?

There is a serious shortage of male (is there another kind? :? ) human sperm in Sweden right now. Yup! Hard to believe but TRUE!! :shock: (or FALSE? :D ) I've noticed Magnus has been taking a break from here recently. Maybe he's putting in too much overtime :lol: I think I know of a few Antipodean sub-continents called Australia that could do a brisk trade in export. As Swedish girls might be tempted to say ''I couldn't give a Castlemaine XXXX for any other kind of jizz''

So. True or false? Is Snapsie telling it like it is or else pulling your plonker? Same terms and conditions apply.

If all Swedish girls look like Rebecka and Alex, I would swallow my pride and force myself to personally donate to the cause. :P :wink:

Wikiwatsit wrote:“At 25,000 residents, the town would be one of the largest in northern Sweden, and I find it hard to believe that you could keep something like that a secret for more than 150 years.”

This just reeks of a conspiacy. It has to be true.
I'm on my way, "plonker" in hand..... er, so to speak. :lol:

Fuck! :shock:

I only have two questions.
1/ What were you on?
2/ Where can I get some?

Rambling along like finding your way to Chako Paul on a map with no labels, markings, or directions.

I enjoyed it immensely. :T *:)*

Have taken down ''Mystery of Chako Paul (Part 1 at 1300 words) '' and ''Murder of Stieg Larsson (Part 1 at 1800 words)'' now. I have been working with Sam on ideas for merging these two plotlines. I also have a pre-existing outline (1,000 words) of a modern north Scandinavian adventure ''Beyond The Midnight Sun'' the full length version of which would be too long for a short story as such. We have provided a sort of next part to the Larsson theme which I will post on here sometime (circa 2000 words). Sam is better on drawing on the economic and political side of plots than me, which is necessary to take it forward. We have hit the same problem as with ''The Land That is Not'' (storyboard at 3000 words) - there is limited mileage in pursuing what can only be ever classed as fanfiction. Existing copyright extends to the main characters.

With the Chako Paul idea (which is original) we can rewrite based on two different lead characters, one of whom happens to be a sassy fearless redhead :evil: I wonder who that could be? *whistles nonchalantly* :twisted: We could incorporate most of the ideas from ''The Land That is Not'' as a sub-plot. It is annoying that although the story is entirely original (as a 10+ years on development of FA) , it is still shackled by using the characters of Elin and Agnes rendering it commercially dead in the water. Using the two leads and other characters from FA as background reference points was really half the fun in producing it. I still have the ''Happy Birthday Dear Agnes'' routine at 2100 words, and Sam using his clinical background drafted a specimen script for a SJUKHUSBACKEN (hospital in Sodermalm) scene, at about 1500 words, which would have reunited Agnes and Elin. By combining all these elements we may have the basis for a sustainable ORIGINAL novel, or who knows, maybe even screenplay 8)

In reality I've come to the conclusion that Ten Years On ain't ever going to happen. Moodysson would have made it by now if he was going to do it. Certainly the prospects of an acting reunite of Mesdames Dahlstrom and Liljeberg look increasingly unlikely from the latter's disposition. Someone on here jokingly remarked about a ''F.A. - the next generation'' being made. If anything I think that is a more likely a scenario for ten plus years from now. There are acting precedents like Jenny Agutter changing roles from the lead girl to playing her mother in the remake of ''The Railway Children'' and doubtless others you can think of. It would be good for continuity to see Alex make that kind of move, and icing on the cake if one (or more!) of the Liljeberg/ Skepp sprogs went into acting and played in it as well! :)

Ah well. Dream on :?

LOL Ditto.

You could always WRITE it as Agnes and Elin, snapsie, and then when it's finished go back and change the names and a few of the minor details. Sneaky, but then you have the fun of writing it as such, but end up with something potentially floggable. :wink: :?:

I fink that by reedink this yu wil undastand mee beta.

Neerli too yeers ago I got hit by a truk. I downt meen skwasht lyk a hejhog or enifink uvawyz I wudnut bee here now wud I? The wink mira ov the truk smakt mee on the hed and I hat to go too hospikl. I surpowz yu think it hurt mee a lot wen I got hit. But wot hapand woz I got nokt owt and I didunt wayk up for a long tym. Itz korld a koma. Itz lyk yu ar sleepink but downt wayk up wen yur supozd too. My armz got brokan too. Lyk I downt meen brokan of lyk a dolz armz kumink of or enifink lyk that. By the tym I wowk up my armz and hed hat mendid and I didunt feel eni payn orltho I stil get hedayks sumtyms. I did get beta but by that tym Iyd mist a lot ov skooltym. So thay kept mee bak a yeer so I kud kach up. Not that it mayd much difrens.

At joonia skool my mayn teechur iz miz trota. I downt lyk her and nun ov the uva kidz do iyvur. Wee orl beeleev she wurkt in a zoo az a keepa bifor shee got the sak. She got fyad bikoz orl the animelz komplaynd abowt her. Thay sed shee smelt wurs and woz noyzeer and ugliur than eni ov the animelz. So then she beekaym a teechur and kaym to showt at uz lot insted. That izant reeli tru wee just mayd orl that up bikoz wee downt lyk her. Wee ar norti and mayk animel noyzez beehynd her bak just too anoy her a lot. It duzunt tayk much too anoy miz trota.

Bikoz az yu see Iym not veri gud at spelink I get speshul help from Miz Abramz hoo kumz in too teech mee wun too wun and sumtyms in a smorl groop. I lyk that. I prifur it. Thatz bikoz sum ov the uva kidz pik on mee and I get bulid a lot bikoz thay fink Iym fik. I A NOT FIK. See lyk that. I no that yu yooz big letaz for wen yu need to showt sumfink or wen yu get angri or veri eksyted. I get angri and owver eksyted a lot. And I no that thayr ar speshul likl fingz wot yu kan ryt too mayk it orl eezia to reed. Itz korld punkchewayshun.

Thayr ar fingz lyk eksklamashuns lyk this ! but yu normli put them afta wurds and not bifor! Lyk that see! And wen yu get too the end ov wot yu are sayink yu put a ful stop like this . ownly I havunt dun speeking yet so wayt for it. Thayr yu ar! Only that tym yu got a eksklamashun bikoz I was eksyted. Haha! See I put wun thayr too bikoz I laft owt lowd. I no thayr uva fingz lyk komuz , yu shud yooz for wen you meen to tayk a bref, see, but I downt yooz them much bikoz I tork too fast orl the tym! Thatz bikoz I get owver eksyted lyk I did just bak then.

Iyv orlso lernt to put BIG lettaz for wen yu start too speek agayn at the biginink ov a sentens. And yu shud orlwayz yooz a BIG letter for startink Importent wurdz and for wen I am torkink abowt mee, bikoz I AM IMPORTENT! Sori dint meen too showt lyk that! Haha. And question skwiglz lyk this ? for wen yu have a kwestyun to ask. But ryt now I downt. Eniway bak too Miz Abramz hoo iz reely luvly and haz tort mee orl theez nyu subjeks. I try too doo my bestest. But Iym a bit layzee too so I downt orlwayz yooz much punkchewayshun.

Just bikoz Iym not veri gud at spelink duzunt meen I downt lyk to reed. I doo. Miz Abramz gets mee speshul buks that I kan reed frum. I orlso luv it mowst wen shee reeds too uz or telz uz a stawri. I kan mayk up stawriz too and I lyk to tel them wen Iym bak in the big klas but miz trota duzunt chooz mee to tel stawriz veri much bikoz she duzunt lyk mee. So a lot ov the tym wen Iym on my own I tel stawriz too myself. I spend a lot ov tym on my own bikoz not meni ov the uva kidz lyk mee.

Miz Abramz got mee a laptop kompyoota wich I kan tork intoo and it helpz mee too ryt and stuf. My big problem wiv it iz that it stil mayks it difikult for mee to reed bak wen itz orl set up an riten propli. I kan reed my own ritink best ov orl wen itz riten lyk this. I lyk to ryt wurdz lyk thay sownd in my hed. Itz lyk I orlwayz hav too kut up my meel on the playt into smorl peeses. Thatz how I lern, but itz difikult sumtyms. I orlso hav a speshul pokit fing a bit lyk a kalkyoolayta ownli itz for wurdz insted. I typ in the letaz how I wud ryt it and then it triyz to giv mee the ryt spelink and even sez the word bak to mee. Spoooki ay! Akchewali Iym a lot beta at spelink and ritink than yu may fink frum reedink this. Thatz bikoz I slo down and tayk moor kayr wiv it. Yu see I kan luk bak at wot I am ritink heer and I no thayrs lotz ov miztayks in it. But if I try to korekt orl of it lyk propa ritink then orl the wordz just jump arownd on the payj and I get anoyd and angri wiv myself.

Wen I go up to big skool in septemba I wil bee twelv instead ov ilevan lyk the uvaz. Orl my old frendz ar orlredi thayr so that wil bee gud, but thay myt not tork too mee much bikoz thay fink thayr biga than mee. Wun reely grayt fing iz that Miz Abramz will stil bee seeink mee for speshul lesunz.

Shee sed I shud try to ryt a big stawri owva the suma holidayz. Wel I reely am pleezd abowt that bikoz I hav a lot ov tym on my own to fil in and I reeli doo hav a big stawri to tel. Miz Abramz sez I shud ryt it how I speek furst bikoz thatz how the reeder shud see the Wurld. Froo my iyz and the way I luk at fingz. miz trota fort it woz a reely bad iydea. Shee sed that if enywun red my stawri then evrywun wud end up rytink like mee. I fink that wud bee just grayt! Eniway I downt kayr bikoz Iyv left joonier skool now and sed gudbi to that bich miz trota foreva. Yipeee!

Iym kynd ov tyad now and need too sleep. Wel just luk at that! I havunt eeven bigun my stawri. I howp yu havant bin too bawd ov it. It gets reely eksytink soon!

What a remarkable feat of concentration to keep "fonetik" the whole time. By half way it was very easy to read, and very enjoyable.

Tell me more about yourself Skylar. Image

Aww fanq! This idea ran away with itself. It started off as a prequel about Agnes earlier days in Mariefred, and her odd friendship with Skylar. Writing this fonetikali took about three times as long as normal, as I have a tendency to self-correct as I go along. The rest fell into place on a day visit to Matlock Bath (don't know if you know it Ian?) as being the sort of tourist place Skylar grows up (poor substitute for Mariefred I know, but it's all I can afford) I have a good idea for a teen novel developing from this, but couldn't bear to write it all in fonetik, maybe just the odd sample. It is a symbiotic relationship, Agnes being Agnes can't see the trolls, pixies, fairies and elves that Skylar sees all around, but provides the cool logic to help Skylar campaign against property development threatening the enchanted woods.

I promise to keep taking the medication. Yeh. :)
