A poll re "The Hitcher"  
First off, the standalone Orlibean I wrote that I was afraid to post went well so I'm glad I posted and didn't lock.

Okay, so you guys remember this B/J story I started about a year ago?

Well, remember how it was an experiment to see how much bad fic I could write every night in half an hour? Well, I didn't really have anything in mind beyond each day and people apparently liked the damn thing.

I don;t like basing stories right off the movie (where I copy it almost scene for scene). But since people have expressed interest, I want to see what you as the reader want.

An interactive sort of fic.

So I created a poll open to ALL.

If you remember correctly, we were last in Justin's car, Brian had a knife held to his boy'sJustin's pretty neck while Ethan was in the back shooting off one-liners...

Poll #1302763 The Hitcher and where do we go from here
This poll is closed.

Which way would you like to see this story go:

Continue the story on a lighter level, like in cannibal!verse.
Continue the story on a darker level, where Brian is a real bad ass.
No matter if its dark or light, kill Ethan.
No matter if its dark or light, kill Ethan...in the worst way possible.
Have aliens come down and abduct Ethan leaving Brian to fuck Justin mercilessly against the hood of Justin's car.
Why do you want to continue this piece of crap anyway?
Can't you just leave us all alone?

So let me know. :)

So I refreshed my memory and I agree with Claudia: Don't kill off Ethan, he's hilarious!

Can't decide on the light/dark question, especially since definitions are so fluid, apparently. I'd vote for the middle ground - not so light-hearted it isn't serious anymore, but also not too painful. I'm talking completely out of my ass here, by the way; I have no clue what happens in the movie, so I have no idea what to expect at all. But I'm glad it's not 'movie X with the main characters looking like Brian and Justin' anyway.

Looking forward to the updates!

Ethan is fun in this one, innit he?

It's funny - the light/dark thing is really muddled when it comes to me. tdorian laughed when I said 'light like cannibal!verse' because it is rather funny. It's lighthearted yet quite dark - black humor if you will. :)

But this would be a bad ass Brian.

And to make it just like the movie only switching the actors is a huge no no with me. I don't go in for that sort of thing.

The original Hitcher was with Rutger Hauer. The new one is with Sean Bean and was very hard to watch. In case you haven't noticed, I pair Bean with Orlando in my RPS stories.

Hm, I'm not sure how much I'd want Brian to be a bad ass. (That also seems to lie in the eyes of the beholder....) I was ok with the 'other' Brian from TaMD, but this one has a knife at Justin's throat already, so I'm a little apprehensive. Just keep in mind that it would be counter-productive to scare Ethan into speechlessness :)

Because if we scared Ethan to speechlessness, then he wouldn't be throwing out those one-liners! LOL!
