It's even funnier because the stupid gay faggot openly brags about how it was inspired by his own life experience, totally oblivious to what a fucking loser that makes him.

Anyways, the faggot software won't let me copy and paste (in case somebody steals his masterpiece), so you'll have to download Sophocles (http://www.download.com/Sophocles-Screenwriting-Software/3000-2079_4-10212887.html) here, and get the shitty script (http://s9.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=1J4GHPD527SQ12YW8KHDAZK6J8) here. It's only about 1.5mb all up.

Then you go without, unless somebody who has the full version of sophocles is kind enough to download the script to copy and paste it here.

Me too. But it's honestly the greatest thing you'll ever read. The guy who wrote it was NINETEEN YEARS OLD. His birthday party was one of those no drugs, no alcohol, no females, "we'll have a water-bomb fight, then watch the Matrix, be sure to bring me presents" type affairs.

That was infinitely emo and lame. Liek, omg writing about how you can't ask a chick out and being 19 yourself. Excuse me? Bloody ridiculous.

EXT. SCHOOL - GARDENS - MORNING

MICHAEL and ALEX are walking to school. They are in the gardens of the
school, there are people everywhere chatting as you do about the upcoming
semester. MICHAEL, unlike everyone else, is staring at the ground about 15
feet in front of him.


perhaps an oval. on their own to allow confidential talk.


MICHAEL
Hey Alex, you remember that girl from last
semester? You know, the one with the red hair?

ALEX
Yeah, I remember her. The one that got freaked out
when you stared at her for like hours on end, every
day.


They enter the school and pass a group of teenage girls discussing
something.

MICHAEL
(eyes looking up, as if in a dream)
Yeah, I wonder if she'll be back this semester.

ALEX
I doubt it man, she changed schools over the break.

MICHAEL moves his gaze back to the ground.


EXT. SCHOOL - OUTSIDE CLASSROOM

COREY, a friend of ALEX, is coming out from behind a building, stares
directly at ALEX, a smile coming across his face.

COREY
Look what the weather brought in!

ALEX
(Gives Corey a 'nigga' style greeting)
My man! How was your holidays?


It is obvious that Corey has a very energetic, happy lifestyle.

COREY
Not bad hey, with the oldies.
(beat)
(mockingly)
Hey Mikey.

MICHAEL
Hey.

the_GoDdEsS
09-28-2005, 12:03 PM
COREY stares at michael for a second, MICHAEL is still staring at the
ground.


COREY
(jumps at the sudden slowdown in
conversation)
Hey dude, you gotta check out this chick, fresh
from Carindale High.


COREY leads MICHAEL and ALEX round some buildings and into the courtyard.
The courtyard is a park within the school, small seats under trees and a
nice garden, the different cliques are obvious.


COREY
(Pointing towards the 'good looking girls'
clique, gathered under a nice oak or
similar)
There she is, 5'7, blonde, what more could you ask
for eh!


MICHAEL looks up, his stare directed towards HELEN, the girl corey is
talking about. For a moment, his stare just lingers in the air, but
eventually, HELEN's gaze drifs toward our group, and hey eyes meet MICHAEL's, she smiles, a nice, warm, genuine smile, then goes back to her
conversation.


ALEX
Helen?, you've got high hopes Corey.

COREY
You know her?

ALEX
Yeah, friend of the family.
(puts arm over Corey's shoulder)
Mate, she is a nice girl, too good for the likes of
you.


COREY
What do ya mean? Like a daddies girl or something?

ALEX nods.

COREY
Well, they're no fun.

A little bit slutty girl walks past, Corey jumps at the chance.

COREY
Hey, I'm Corey. What classes are you taking?Oh
really? Me too!...........


The conversation continues as he follows the girl OC.

EXT. SCHOOL - COURTYARD - RECESS

MICHAEL and ALEX are having lunch under the annex of one of the buildings
on looking the courtyard. It is obvious MICHAEL has chosen the spot
specifically.


Both ALEX and MICHAEL are eating their lunch, ALEX a sandwich, MICHAEL
some biscuits.

MICHAEL is staring at HELEN. Though HELEN seems to be unaware.

ALEX
(noticing)
Hey dude,
(beat)
Hey!


Gives MICHAEL a nudge.

MICHAEL
(a little annoyed)
What?

ALEX
You know she wants to meet you?

MICHAEL almost chokes on his biscuit.


MICHAEL
What? Why would she? I mean, who? I mean...

ALEX
I was chatting to her over the holidays, seems she
is interesting in meeting someone new, someone
different, your name came up.

MICHAEL starts to smile, then looks at ALEX.

MICHAEL
You're the best man!


INT. SCHOOL - CLASSROOM - MIDDAY

MICHAEL is having trouble studying. His gaze also swaying towards HELEN,
who is sitting in the front of the class.

HELEN is concentrating on the class, 100%


MICHAEL notices a small note being passed towards the front of the class.
Hand to hand, and eventually onto HELEN's desk.

HELEN starts reading the note as MICHAEL starts attempting to trace the
origin of the note. HELEN smiles.


EXT. SCHOOL - COURTYARD - LUNCH

MICHAEL and ALEX are sitting at the same position as recess. MICHAEL is
looking troubled.


ALEX
So what man, she got passed a note, it doesn't mean
anything.

MICHAEL
(unsure)
I don't know man. I mean, look at her, and I mean,
look at me. I would never work out.


Alex enters philosophical mode.

ALEX
You know what they say... It is better to have
loved and lost, then to have never loved at all.
(beat)
Why don't you go talk to her?


MICHAEL thinks about it, then starts getting nervous. Hands brushing
through hair etc...

MICHAEL
You think so?
(beat)
Now?

the_GoDdEsS
09-28-2005, 12:04 PM
HELEN's friends have left, she is sitting there by herself eating her
lunch. MICHAEL gets up, hesitates, sits down, gets up again, and
eventually starts walking towards HELEN. Just as MICHAEL reaches the beginning of the courtyard, Another man, much better looking than MICHAEL,
perhaps a senior, approaches HELEN and strikes up a conversation.


This is the man who wrote the note in class.

MICHAEL freezes, turn around and walks back towards ALEX.


MICHAEL
(verging on upset)
I knew this was a bad idea.

MICHAEL then walks straight past ALEX and towards the another eating area.


ALEX, about to get up, notices HELEN seems a little agitated talking to
this other guy. He can sort of make out the conversation.

HELEN
Why did you write me a note in class? I could have
gotten in trouble, and on my first day!


OTHER GUY
Gees, sorry I even bothered.

The other guy walks off, obviously agitated. ALEX takes this chance to go
and talk to HELEN. HELEN gives a coy smile to ALEX, looking a little
upset.

HELEN
Hey...


DISSOLVE TO:

INT. HOUSE - THAT NIGHT


It's late at night and MICHAEL lies face up in bed in a messy heap. He
STARES CONTENTLY at the ceiling above him, lost in DEEP THOUGHT with a
TROUBLED look on his face. He is so motionless he could almost pass for a
corpse.


INT. SCHOOL - CLASSROOM - MORNING

A high school Year 10 FORM ROOM. Everything is what you'd expect: all the
students are in low-key conversations everywhere, FILLING the room with
MINDLESS CHATTER.


But TWO in the front row begin to stand out. MICHAEL, somewhat rigid, and
HELEN, sitting next to him, reading a small novel, much more relaxed. She
is humming to a slow tune, and her soothing voice melts through Michael,
almost making him shiver. He continually steals nervously short glances of her. Itís obvious he is infatuated with her, but is very scared about it.
She passes a casual look at him, watching him watch her. Michael suddenly
snaps out of his trance, and after realizing that Helen is looking at him,
gazes away.


Michael thinks for a few seconds trying to work out what he should do
right now. Helen briefly looks at him out of the corner of her eye.

He takes a very DEEP BREATH.

MICHAEL
(Nervous)
Hey...


HELEN
Hi, Michael.

He RIPPLES at the sound of her SOFT VOICE. She notices.

HELEN
Are you okay?

MICHAEL
Yeah. Just a cold shiver.

the_GoDdEsS
09-28-2005, 12:05 PM
Helen, a little uneasy, looks back down to her book.

Michael takes another DEEP BREATH.

MICHAEL
(Continuing)
So, Helen...

HELEN
(Jumpy)
Yeah?


She looks into his eyes, her own alit with ENERGY and ANTICIPATION.

MICHAEL
Did you...
(Pause)
... I mean, how do you like the school?

Her eyes lose their vibrancy.

HELEN
It's ok... I guess.


MICHAEL
Oh... okay.

He breaks eye contact. Helen looks back down to her book as Michael lowers
his head in silently scorn.

DISSOLVE TO:


EXT. SCHOOL - OUTSIDE CLASSROOM - NOON

Michael, with lunch in hand walks past his form room. He briefly looks
inside and, concentrating on the desk he was sitting at, brings back
flashbacks of him chickening out.


He looks away in a feeble attempt to try to block them out.

MICHAEL
(To himself)
Stupid, stupid, stupid.


When he straightens up and looks ahead, he sees Helen standing and
gossiping with her friends at the end of the path...


... and drops his head, avoiding eye contact. Helen, noticing him and
feeling uncomfortable, drops her head as well, and Michael only steals a
glance of her beauty while passing her before he walks off. Helenís
longing eyes follow him trudging off to his friends.


EXT. SCHOOL - TEN MINUTES LATER

Nothing here is unordinary. Groups and colonies of students are abound.
Off to the side, Michael is eating with a couple of friends, ALEX and
COREY. He is in the middle of a heated conversation.


MICHAEL
Yes, I like her! So what?!

COREY
So ask her out!

MICHAEL
I've tried! I just can't do it!

ALEX
You can do it. You must realize that itís far
easier than you think.


COREY
It's easier than dialing on the telephone.

MICHAEL
No, it's not!

Corey thinks for a second to find a new approach.


COREY
If you ever saw the way she looks at you, youíd
know she wants you to ask her out!

ALEX
Yeah. Why donít you ask her out for Saturday?

MICHAEL
I canít! I've been wanting to ask her out for ages!
I plan and practice, but I chicken out right as I
ask her!


ALEX
You make it too complicated. All you really have to
do is walk up to her and say...
(Imitates Michael's voice)
... would you like to go to the movies on Saturday?
(Normal voice)
Voila!

Michael ponders on this.


COREY
Hey, there she is. Do it now.

Michael turns around, and Helen is sitting in the background, still
TALKING with her friends. He easily knows heís being set up here.

MICHAEL
Not in front of everyone, damn it!

Alex shakes his head.


ALEX
No...

Before Michael can blink, Corey and Alex grab his wrists.

ALEX
Now.

the_GoDdEsS
09-28-2005, 12:05 PM
They start pulling him towards Helen. Michaelís eyes fill with fear and he
helplessly struggles to break out of the grips, but they are too strong.
He lets himself drop to the ground , but Corey and Alex continue, and DRAG him across the ground like a LIFELESS RAG DOLL. They stop at Helenís feet.
Helen is GIGGLING uncontrollably.


ALEX
He's going to ask you out now.

Michael lies MOTIONLESS on the ground. Corey, frustrated, grasps Michael's
pinky finger and YANKS it backwards over itself.

MICHAEL
AAAAHHHHHHHHH!!

COREY
Get up!


Michael obeys and gets up, revealing a LARGE, GREEN STAIN on his shirt.
Corey and Alex let go and walk away. Michael and Helen look into each
otherís eyes. Helenís are once again alit with energy.


MICHAEL
(Trembling)
Helen...

HELEN
(Excited)
Yes?

MICHAEL
(Still Trembling)
I endured a lot of pain in coming to this
decision...


He shakes his hand, while looking over his shoulder and glaring at Corey.

MICHAEL
...but I was wondering if you would like to go with
me to the movies on Saturday night.

Her eyes light up more.


HELEN
Yes!!

Michael smiles victoriously as the ENTIRE CROWD who has gathered CHEER in
victory. Neither he, nor Helen, seem to notice the noise. They are simply
looking in to each otherís eyes.

MICHAEL
Great! I'll call you tonight, then.

HELEN
Sure!


Michael turns and walks off towards Alex and Corey with a confidence he
never knew, and when he gets back... THWACK!!... PUNCHES Corey across the
face.

MICHAEL
(Smiling)
Thatís for the finger!


All three start laughing wildly. Michael offers his hand to Corey. MICHAEL
Here. C'mon. Corey takes it and hauls himself back up. MICHAEL Thanks,
guys. I owe you one.

DISSOLVE TO:


INT. HOUSE - MICHAELíS BEDROOM - NIGHT

Rain beats on the roof, gently and somnolently from the night sky. Michael
is on his BED, a COMPUTER at his right, smiling at the ceiling above him
like he has orgasmed. He still can hardly believe what he had done, just a
few hours previously.


He suddenly has an idea. He gets up and TURNS ON his computer, the machine
WHIRRING into life.

He lets it LOAD, the screen LIGHTING UP his face.

He opens up a WORD PROCESSOR, and begins to TYPE.


The COMPUTER SCREEN begins to fill with letters and words. Certain parts
of his writing grab our attention:


"Confidence" ... "We see he is staring at a beautiful girl..." ... "Erinís
longing eyes follow him trudging off to his friends." ... 6. "Alex is
eating with a couple of friends, MICHAEL and COREY." ... "Before Alex can blink, Corey and Michael grab his wrists." "ALEX (Still Trembling)" "I
endured a lot of pain in coming to this decision..." ... "He gets up and
TURNS ON his computer..."


Michael progressively SMILES wider and wider as he writes, occasionally
LAUGHING with the memories his writing is bringing back to him. He stops
and leans back to survey over his work.

MICHAEL
Beautiful.


He then thinks about it and writes: "ALEX Beautiful. FADE OUT. THE END"

FADE OUT.

THE END

I found out you only have to copy/paste one paragraph at a time. It's a longish thing but it took about 10 minutes to do. For Sunny's entertainment. It's worth a read and a giggle.

i highly doubt that someone on this forum paid $120 for script-writing software. ;/

I almost paid a lot more than that for Final Draft, but then a friend of mine bought it so now I don't need to. It's not really necessary anyway, it just saves a lot of time and effort. I've written a feature length screenplay without it and several shorter ones, but it would have really helped. The downside of them is that anyone can use them to write a screenplay that on first glance appears professional, and you actually have to read some to find out if the writer knows anything about what they're doing.

This is the best part. Like all his problems would be solved when he acts like a sniveling bitch. haha

Sin Studly
09-29-2005, 09:42 AM
He claims they were. This was a "true story, based on his own life experiences, and the protagonist is based on him".

The worst part is, he asked the most talented young writer I know/have ever heard of to 'write with me, see, cause I'm an ideas man but I need help with editing and stuff'

wheelchairman
09-29-2005, 09:48 AM
I wouldn't be surprised if the first part is true. However no woman could ever respect a snivelling bitch like him. And people don't act so idealic when they get a date. There never would've been a crowd, for example. The guy is just lonely and his loneliness disconnected him from reality.

Which means hilarity for us.

Sin Studly
09-29-2005, 10:18 AM
I imagine it's exaggerated and shit, basically a 'Do you use condoms or the pill' kinda bullshit from an emo nerd retard who considers himself 'creative' and thinks a girl saying yes to a date is worth bragging about.
