I have decided on my prompts so far, although I'm still a little uncertain about one of them. The problem is that the moment I thought about this particular prompt, a story idea came to mind. Now, should I keep the prompt to myself and write the story or should I use it in the game? Of course, I can still write the story and use the prompt in the game. It might be interesting to have the same prompt tackled by two authors. But there's always the danger that the story I have in mind is too close to the one I will receive. On the other hand, among the 3 prompts, this one is probably the least likely to get picked. But who knows...
There's still some time until sign-ups close, so I will contemplate on this a little further. If I can't think of another prompt, I will use this one.
In preparation to the game, and because I felt like it, I started to re-watch all episodes again. I'm currently in season 2, and with this season, I try out the order in which they aired during the CBS premiere instead of the production order on the DVD. I've been told it would provide a different perspective on the relationship between the characters. While I found this to be true for the relationship between Nick and Natalie and Nick and Janette, I'm not so sure how Lacroix fits into all this. I find the production order makes more sense where Lacroix is concerned. For example, I've always assumed that Capital Offense
features the first Nightcrawler broadcast after Lacroix's return, however, the "aired" order would make Father's Day
the first episode in which the Nightcrawler appears. Also, the "aired" order places Bad Blood
later in the season while this episode is No. 4 on the DVDs. The latter makes more sense to me because of Nick's statement when he discovers Lacroix at the Raven ("a new place to hide
"). He shouldn't be so surprised when he has already sought him out at CERK during Father's Day
which comes earlier in the "aired" order.
Anyway, it is interesting to watch them in this order for a change.
