Gamora - Guest Posts

Gamora was a fun character to have this week, though I felt she was a little harder to write than usual, and that was reflected in the amount of pay-at-home scripts we got in, just the one. As usual, it's by the inexhaustable and indefatiguable Danial Carroll. Hit the jump to see his script, 'The Meeting'. It's a funny little ditty that packs a decent ending.

Make sure to check back later on when the new week's character is launched, I think you'll like her.

“THE MEETING” by Danial Carroll

PANEL ONEWe see an establishing shot of a run-down community hall.

GAMORA (FROM BUILDING): Thank you all for coming.

PANEL TWO
We see a close-up of Gamora, sitting on a cheap folding-chair in a typical community hall room—various posters and flyers stuck to the plain brick wall in the background.

GAMORA: I thought there was going to be more of you, but that’s OK.

PANEL THREE, PAGE-WIDTHWe now see a wide shot of the room. Sitting on identical folding-chairs in a small circle are Gamora, Lyra, Jarella, She-Hulk, Poison Ivy, and even a Star Wars Twi’lek dancer.

GAMORA: So you all know why we’re here…

PANEL FOUR
Close-up on Gamora again.

GAMORA: So who wants to go first?

PANEL FIVE
From out in the hall, we can see the group through a partially open door. On the door is taped a simply-typed sign reading:

GREEN WOMEN’S SUPPORT GROUP
MEETING HERE TODAY AT 4PM

  1. I liked this one Danial. I must say though, did anyone else notice this week the amount of....'blue' scripts we had?
    I mean...Pocket Rocket? I'm going to be having visions for weeks!

  2. Nice script, Danial. What would have been even cooler would be having James T. Kirk come in as the guest speaker.

    Ben - what's wrong with a little blue now and then? ;-) (Actually, bearing in mind that I confused Gamora with Nebula, my script was a lot bluer in my head.)
