Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston was created by Will
I've seen a number of enhancements of Jennifer with Supergirl sized muscles and I think she'd make a wonderful Supergirl. It'd be fun to see her leap in the air from that apartment balcony in Friends, and to see her land in the background on the balcony...cape flying in the air...and change at superspeed and walk into the apartment as if she'd been there all the time.

While certainly not to the point I'd toss her into yesterday's garbage, Jennifer never struck me as the bombshell everyone sees her as.....

In the VERY early stages of Joel Silver's WW production, her name was being thrown around alot in rumor mills of playing the Amazon Princess -- even to the point where I vaguely remember her being asked and saying "she'd love to"

While not my fantasy girl, though, certainly a nice choice, and I agree with Will --- better cast for Sgirl than WW....

Wow...great woman to pick...next to me of course :D Friends is a great show...and a relationship between Rachel with the strength and powers of Supergirl and a geek like Ross would be incredible. I remember one episode when Phoebe came to a costume party dressed as Supergirl. Imagine Rachel showing her the real thing!

And wasn't this supposed to be about Jennifer Aniston, rather than me? She's a woman I admire greatly, if only for having had Brad Pitt.

Well, you DID contribute a lot to SLEEPING BEAUTY, even if you got too bogged down in your day job to actually write more than a draft of one chapter. That whole shopping spree scene was YOUR idea. Don't know if you followed the discussion at AU Readers, where people came up with sundry things that Alex and Charmin could shop for.

Any suggestions? Maybe something on Will's Jennifer Aniston/Friends premise? I like the more down to earth themes. Goings-on on another planet or in space don't appeal to me that much. Jennifer/Rachel as Supergirl is an interesting premise. Anyone agree?

Maybe you TOTALLY should...
The first chapter of Paul was one of my favorite stories. Just the description of the moment when he first realizes who she is... so well done.

For the benefit of us newcomers to the "genre," where can these stories be found?

I'm not sure where the story is on-line now. The series was based on my life when I was 16, and a bf I had at that time.

I think the story has bounced around several different sites, but it's now available at Infinity Bridge:

www.infinitybridge.com/othervoices/paul.htm

As to why we like it? Guess it's stuff like bullets-and-boobs combined with a kind of down-to-earth, aw-shucks attitude on the part of the heroine. Like flying to Mars and stuff was no big deal.

About the same time you were working with me on SLEEPING BEAUTY, some other writer plagiarized "Paul," changing the names of the characters but keeping the rest almost word-for-word. Maybe it was somebody at Xtreme Strength, or some other subdomain at Diana the Valkyrie. The guy added one or two chapters, I think and then faded away.

I remember you hadn't continued the story yourself because you didn't want to resort to the AU gold gimmick, and you couldn't figure any other way for Paul and Evelyn to have, er, safe sex.

Well, I like to have the stories a little more "down to earth" literally than most writers. The gold rule seemed a bit contrived. Not all parts of the body should be literally invulnerable. Under the gold rule, how would you get your hair done? Waxing anywhere would certainly be out of the question. Maybe it would be different, but a supergirl should do pretty much the same things as a normal girl, only more so.

So I like to stay away from space and prefer to see stories set in real places like apartments, tropical beaches, riding stables, restaurants and offices. That minimizes the number of artificial rules, and makes the story more like real life. And would we all like to see our stories happen in real life?

There was so many good things that went with such a simple and down to earth premise. I liked that everyone in the family knew and interacted with that and you wrote the responses so well for how a typical suburbia family that most of us have would react to having a supergirl in their midst. It was a high schooler story and you wrote precisely like a 16 year old high schooler would think... then added the super to it. I'm rereading it now to add to this list, but I liked the small-town feel of the setting since that hit home quite a bit to my upbringing, not to mention the humanity you bring to the character since for all intents and purposes, she was human until that summer.

"I’m not sure if it was the shock of finding out who I really was or if it was the realization that he had dumped me, "

And that right there is my favorite part.

I could go on forever... I just hope you start writing again. The friends thing would be a great way to kick it off again or jump in on one of the interactive stories... either way, good to see you again!

There was once a story called THE FARMYARD, by Starfox, that had kind of the same feel to it. It was also posted at Infinity Bridge. But Starfox had it taken down because he didn't think it was any good. A shame.

Then there are promising stories abandoned by their authors, like WAIFS AND ESTRAYS by WordMouse (who's still around at AU Readers but rarely posts) and PERSEPHONE by Pallas Athena (who seems to have vanished; I think Tarot Barnes was the only one who had any real contact with her.). I'd love to have run them at THE BRIGHT EMPIRE if they'd been finished.

Well, I'll be happy to start writing again, time permitting. Maybe all of you can help me with some illustrations. I worked with Sharon on the first couple of stories, wrote a few of my own about what would happen if Princess Diana became a superwoman. As fate would have it, it was almost exactly at the time of her fatal accident. So, those stories were suddenly inappropriate. I wrote one about Monica Lewinski taking her revenge against the Washington DC set. It wasn't that good.

Teenage supergirls are so easy to write because the world is so simple at that age. I remember exactly what it was like and the excitement and disappointment of boys and relationships. Imagining myself as a sixteen year old girl who suddenly becomes Supergirl is very easy. Of course it would change everything, and you just might succumb to the temptation to use your superpowers for a little bit of harmless (and not so harmless) fun. And of course, now you look incredible in anything you wear. Every time I think of that scene I remember the feeling of anxiety and anticipation the first time I went to the beach with a mixed group (i.e. m/f)of friends and wore a string bikini for the first time.

So I like the stories as realistic as possible and a little on the sweet side - as if Disney was going to make a movie of it - well not quite that sweet.

I remember the Monica Lewinski one and enjoyed it for the reasons you described - it was light and fun and with characters we knew (whether in the public eye or they hit a personal note). Did you ever do a second part to that one?

What are some of the other ideas you've been working on? If anything this is definitely the forum to get some fantastic feedback.
