she tells him she loves him, he freaks, runs away…and there we have a cause to start a war…and when the curse thing is broken he realizes that she actually is beautiful and they get married (but then it would get a little more complicated because we would have to elaborate on her life more, and that would draw away from the main four 😕 )March 11, 2009 at 1:06 am #406979March 11, 2009 at 1:32 am #406983
Like we could have her have a crush on him and that’s why she lets him out, she just has to tell him like briefly and maybe kiss him and we don’t have to hear from her again.
I don’t know. I don’t want to bring something like that into the script and then just leave it at that. And no way that anyone’s kissing a skeleton.

I like this idea, but it would draw away from the main four, and I don’t think it should cause a war, because the skeletons are pretty much meaningless to the Queen. And remember, they send an army to battle against the King because they want Edward back.
I like that idea. Or it could be the other way around where Edward used to love this woman but she mysteriously disappears one day. A few years later while he is captured by the monsters, he sees one of the girl skeletons at the monster base who resembles a lot like the missing lady.
I wouldn’t want to do this because that still involves him loving a skeleton, which is way too awkward and questionable. I don’t have a problem with a skeleton having a crush on a human though.
Here’s what I think should happen:
The skeleton (who I am temporarily dubbing “Jesse”) has the job of feeding Edward while he’s in a prison cell. This gives them some chance to talk. Jesse develops a crush for Edward (how? I don’t know. He’s not exactly a like-able guy) and one day sets him free. Before he leaves the cell, she tells him that she loves him. Edward is revolted and runs away. Then he meets up with Josh and company somewhere in the cavern and they escape.
Later, during the huge battle, the King’s army is losing horribly. Jesse, who we haven’t seen again until now, is out fighting, and sees Edward battling. Its only a matter of time before he gets taken down. Jesse decides to revolt against the Queen, and the other skeletons quickly follow. Soon, with the help of the skeletons, the Queen’s army is defeated.
Edward, after seeing what Jesse did for him, apologizes. Then all the skeletons revert back to human beings. Then we’ll imply they have a hopeful future together, without directly saying it, because I think that would be lame.
The above scenario would allow us to:
-Develop the back story for the skeletons that leads to their eventual betrayal of the Queen.
-Add a significant character to help explain that back story and advance the plot without taking focus off the main four.
Any thoughts?March 11, 2009 at 2:47 pm #406994March 11, 2009 at 9:49 pm #407002March 12, 2009 at 1:28 am #407007March 12, 2009 at 1:53 am #407009
