I Am Heaven Sent – Setting Things Right

Boys: 
<meanwhile upstairs, Van looks at Siobhan> I guess they bailed?
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> I guess so. <looks at him> Seth and Lia too. <shakes her head>
Boys: 
<Van smiles> I was talking about Seth and Lia.
Boys: 
<Loch looks over at them> What the fuck did you expect? Christ. Could you ignore them anymore?
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Oh.. sorry. <looks at Loch> I wasn’t ignoring anyone.
Boys: 
<Loch walks over, looks at Siobhan> Come on. Where’s your head at? The bar’s upstairs and everyone’s standin’ around downstairs and instead of havin’ everyone move upstairs, you’ve got me and Van runnin’ up and down makin’ drinks and playin’ serving staff. What the hell?
Boys: 
<Loch shrugs> Not to mention all the shit for sittin’ on is up here.
Girls: 
<Siobhan shakes her head> That’ wasn’t me ignoring anyone that was me not thinking.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> I know. But *why*? The ignoring bit I’m talkin’ about was you and Van barely sayin’ two words to Seth and Lia. Why were they here if you didn’t want them here?
Boys: 
<Van looks at Loch> It’s business, Loch. It wasn’t supposed to be a social event.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> Right. So.. how exactly do you “conduct business” if you don’t actually *talk* business? Pope could’ve taken ’em out to dinner and achieved the same shit.


Girls: 
<Siobhan shakes her head>
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Saige> And without all the tension.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Van and nods> He’s right. <looks at Siobhan> and as a hostess you totally dropped the ball. Even I know that much.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Siobhan, to Saige> Yeah. She’s got nothin’.
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> I just don’t know what to say to them.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Van, then at Loch> There’s not really anything I can say..
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Siobhan> Bullshit.
Boys: 
<Loch nods in agreement with Saige> How about starting with.. “shit, you’re right.”.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Loch> So.. what would *you* say to him?
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> That’s easy. I’d start with, “Hey, asshole.” And then I’d try somethin’ like.. “sorry I fucked your wife, man.”
Boys: 
<Loch shrugs> I mean, call me crazy, but I’m thinkin’ some kind of *acknowledgment* of the issue causing the tension would actually go a long way toward relieving it.
Girls: 
<Siobhan listens, Saige shrugs> Unless you’re not.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> Then there’s that. In which case you apologize for what you actually *are* sorry for. And if the tension is because *you’re* pissed, open the fuckin’ door. “Hey, asshole, I’m pissed you *chose* your wife.” Or whatever.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Van you know how to do this.. both of you do. You’re both on good terms with most of your exes.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> We dig Seth and Lia’s not so bad when she loosens up. I’m pretty sure you didn’t drag them out here to help them commit social suicide which is exactly what’s happened. <looks at Van> If they can’t hang out with you guys, they can’t really hang out with the rest of us because we’re always together. So, they’re out here now, isolated. And they didn’t get there by themselves. Seth gave up everything to make Lia happy *including* the job. He’s supposed to be part of the company. If he can’t even stand the tension through a *dinner*, how long do you *really* think he’s gonna stick around? Now.. if you don’t want them around, say the word, but.. I have a hard time believin’ that. You guys are just as responsible for this mess as they are. When are you gonna get off your asses and take some responsibility for fixing it?
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> I guess as soon as I see him again.
Boys: 
<Pope walks in with Bonnie> *That* will be sooner rather than later. They’re on their way back.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> Me too.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Pope> How’d you get them to come back?

Boys: 
<Pope looks at Saige> I told him he needed to hear the script. <smiles at Van and Siobhan> Oh.. and he’s going to take the job.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> That’s great.
Boys: 
<Pope nods> Yes, it is.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Siobhan> Even if working with him is going to be like working with a stranger?
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Van, blinks> I don’t know. <shakes her head> It’s still good for *him* that he took it. <shrugs> And Lia too.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Bonnie> I remember what I was going to say now. I was going to say Lia’s in charge now.
Girls: 
<Bonnie shakes her head> Was she ever *not* though? I mean think about it.
Boys: 
<Pope shakes his head> Before he was at least fighting it. Doing exactly what we has going to do. Now, he’s just let her have his balls completely. And she *does* have his balls. I mean.. they”re *here* now, he and Van aren’t talking and Siobhan’s completely ignoring him. Lia is *literally* right now the only thing he’s got.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Bonnie> Hell.. it couldn’t have worked out better for her if she’d planned it.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Van, then Pope> Yeah but what’s that going to do to *him*?
Boys: 
<Van looks at Siobhan> Nothing good. He’s not exactly the stay at home and cross stitch with your wife kind of guy.
Boys: 
<Loch shakes his head> Please. He’s *way* more social than she is. A guy like that gets bored easy. And that means cagey.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> I know. <looks at Loch> And *that* means sneaking around.
Boys: 
<Pope nods> And his job is a little more on the glamorous side. Release parties, premiers, shit like that.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Siobhan> I think the point Pope was trying to make is there’s no one to sneak around *with* anymore. That’s how she’s got him by the balls. He’s totally isolated.
Girls: 
<Siobhan frowns> Jesus.. that what abusive men do to their wives.
Boys: 
<Pope nods> Which makes him more dependent on the wife which wont’ be good for anyone. Because Seth isn’t really a lay down and die kind of guy.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Siobhan> But isn’t threatening to leave him all the time a kind of abuse? Like Loch said earlier.. she learned from the best. He psychotic sister. And Pope’s right. Seth won’t lay down and die. Maybe for a while, but it can’t last. He’ll act out at some point and the longer he behaves, the worse it’s going to be.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Van and Siobhan> It’s called emotional abuse. And probably psychological too.
Boys: 
<Van nods to Pope> Especially since he’s such a touchy kind of guy. Pulling away from him, shutting him out is kind of cruel, too, which is weird when you’re talking about *Seth* because he’s the last one you’d think…
Boys: 
<Loch laughs> Guys. Listen to yourselves. Last week, we thought *he* was abusing her.
Boys: 
<Loch shrugs> Granted, it looked like she was being *physically* abused, but still.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Loch> Yeah, *but*… she also said she filed for divorce to *show* him what he was doing to them. To make a point. Not because she wanted one. Who files for divorce *just* to prove a point?
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Van> People who are desperate. It’s a cycle they keep perpetuating. They’re both abusive on some level to each other.
Girls: 
<Siobhan quietly> Which isn’t good for either of them. <Shakes her head>
Boys: 
<Pope nods> But, hey.. they’re married. They’ve gotta work that shit out, right?
Boys: 
<Pope shakes his head> All I’m saying is.. well.. like I said to Bonnie.. marriage doesn’t always equal love. In fact, at least half of the time, eventually, it equates to the opposite.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Van> Not if it’s gonna kill them.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Siobhan> No shit.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at them> You guys say that like it wasn’t *already* obvious it was doing exactly that.
Boys: 
<Pope shrugs> Like I said.. self sacrifice..does.not.work. And I’d bet money they’re *both* regretting the decision to work it out already. And if they aren’t, it won’t be long.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Van, to Pope> I don’t know what *we* can do though.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Siobhan> Why should you do anything? And who asked you to? Bonnie and I will handle our actors. You just worry about acting.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Bonnie> So.. I’m thinking we need to find some fun activities for the wife to do while Seth’s working. Help her fill her schedule so she doesn’t have time to lurk around the set and throw him off his game.
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head> She has a new job.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Saige> That’ll help during the hours she works. <looks back at Bonnie> So we need her schedule so we can help her find something to do for the off hours and when shooting runs over.
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods> All right. I’m on it.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles> I don’t film porn with significant others hanging around the set. <looks at the others> Because if they’re not in the industry, I don’t care how much they “understand”, watching your S.O. fuck someone else whether it’s a job or not when you’re *not* the kind of person that gets turned on by it is *never* okay.
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods> No it’s not.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Bonnie> And if it is.. there’s a *serious* problem. I’d love to know what’s *really* going on in Lia’s head when she’s watching his movies.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Pope, smiles> That’s easy. How can he do those things?
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Saige, smiles> I can see that. And I also see a ticking time bomb. Seth does, too. At least half the reason he wanted to pull out.. <grins> Pun *totally* intended… was so he didn’t give her *more* ammo for the future.
Boys: 
<Van listens, smiles, shakes his head, gets up, walks over to the bar and makes another drink for himself and Siobhan, carries hers back over to her>
Girls: 
<Siobhan takes the drink, looks at Van> Thank you. <looks at the others> Do you all need anything?
Boys: 
<Loch shakes his head> I’m good. <takes Saige’s hand, walks over and takes a seat, pulls her into his lap and wraps his arms around her>
Boys: 
<Pope shakes his head> I’m all right.
Girls: 
<Bonnie shakes her head> No thanks.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles and gets comfortable> I’m fine.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods>
Boys: 
<Seth walks in with Lia, whispers> We almost got away, anyway.
Girls: 
<Lia nods> Almost.
Girls: 
<Siobhan goes to the bar and makes drinks for Seth and Lia hearing the door down stairs>
Boys: 
<Seth heads up the stairs with Lia>
Boys: 
<Pope takes a seat with Bonnie and gets comfortable>
Girls: 
<Lia whispers to Seth> You can feel the awkward.
Girls: 
<Siobhan moves over to the stairs> Come on up. <smiles and hands them a drink as they get to the second floor>
Boys: 
<Seth nods to Lia, looks at Siobhan as he takes the drink from her, a little warily> Thanks.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> You’re welcome. Van was telling Loch that we wanted Misanthropy for the sound track.
Boys: 
<Van looks over when they come up>
Boys: 
<Seth nods> I can get behind that.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Van pointedly>
Boys: 
<Van mouths> “I’m getting there. Relax.”
Girls: 
<Lia smiles, softly> I bet they’d do a great job.
Boys: 
<Loch looks over at Seth and Lia, smiles> Are you kidding? We’d totally kick ass.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> That’s what we thought too. Come on in make yourselves comfortable.
Boys: 
<Seth lets go of Lia’s hand, moving his hand to the small of her back, guides her into the living area but lets her decide where to sit>
Boys: 
<Van takes a sip of his drink> Ethan would probably really *love* doing working on the score for a porn film. He’s not really porn actor material, but *that*, I’m sure he’d be all about.
Girls: 
<Lia walks over and sits on the love seat>
Boys: 
<Seth walks over with Lia and sits next to her>
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Yeah, I should text them that little piece of news, too.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Saige> Depending on the script, if the band’s *that* good, we might be able to go so far as to work them into a scene.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> You totally should.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> I think there might be a few places where that could happen.
Boys: 
<Seth nods to Pope> They’re that good.
Girls: 
<Siobhan blinks, looks at Van and smiles> I still have the video on my phone from the last two shows.
Boys: 
<Van nods to Siobhan, looks at Lia> Can you see Ethan’s face when he gets *that* news?
Girls: 
<Lia smiles and nods> Yeah.. the utter disbelief then when he realizes it’s not a joke.. his smile will be as big as Sang’s in the morning when she’s needling you.
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> God I hate it when she does that on those off mornings.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Yeah, you hate it so much, she’s still living there.
Girls: 
<Lia laughs> Yeah but Ethan loves it.
Boys: 
<Van nods to Lia, looks at Loch> Which is the *only* reason she still lives there.
Boys: 
<Loch laughs> Yeah? So why does *Ethan* still live there?
Boys: 
<Van smiles> Fine. They *both* still live there because I’m stuck with them. <looks at Lia> I’m surprised they aren’t married yet.
Girls: 
<Lia nods> Oh… I am too. I’m surprised he hasn’t asked her yet at least.
Boys: 
<Van shrugs> I don’t think he’s as sure of *her* feelings as he is his. He doesn’t want to scare her off.
Boys: 
<Seth shakes his head> That girl’s fearless.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> She is.
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Seth> You should have seen her in school.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Siobhan> What was special about her in school?
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles> Oh. she was always doing *something* out there. <looks at Van> Remember when she had the Football team move the principal’s car to the gym?
Boys: 
<Van smiles at Siobhan> And she didn’t even get suspended for it.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods> No she didn’t, <smiles, looks at Seth> And you can *still* see our senior prank on the hill behind the school if you look hard enough.
Boys: 
<Seth nods, takes a sip of his drink> What was your senior prank?
Boys: 
<Loch whispers to Saige> It’s ridiculous when *we* have to tell people how to fix their relationships.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles and tells him all about it while Saige looks at Loch and whispers> No shit. How did *we* become the Closers?
Boys: 
<Loch smiles, whispers> About the time everyone realized *we* knew more about who we should be with than they did?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Probably.. <softly> Maybe *we* should put everyone in couples.
Boys: 
<Loch nods> Seriously.
Girls: 
<Saige quietly> So.. let’s go there.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles, whispers> I’d totally start with Seth and Siobhan.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Yeah.. and then Van and Lia?
Boys: 
<Loch nods, whispers> Probably. I’d leave David, Taryn, Ren and Akhiro alone. And even Ethan and Sang.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> And Tristan and Nikki?
Boys: 
<Loch nods> They seem pretty good together.
Girls: 
<Saige nods and smiles> Yeah they do.
Girls: 
<Bonnie looks over at Loch and Saige> What are you guys whispering about over there?
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Bonnie> How many different ways we’re gonna try and break the bed tonight.
Girls: 
<Bonnie laughs> You guys have to talk about that? <looks at Pope> That just happens for us.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles at Bonnie> Which is why I had our bed custom made.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles again> Who said we *have* to talk about it? Can’t a guy talk dirty to his girl without bein’ judged?
Girls: 
<Bonnie smiles at Pope> I love our bed. <looks at Loch> Talking dirty is different than discussing the many ways to destroy a bed.
Boys: 
<Loch looks at Bonnie pointedly> How the hell would you know? You can’t even hear the conversation.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles> Explain to us again how raping your woman wins her affections?
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Loch> It wasn’t like *that*. I already had “her affections”. She just needed the forceful act to feel like she belonged to *me* and not the ex. And I needed it to feel like she belonged to me.
Girls: 
<Lia looks at Pope and blinks>
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Bonnie, smiles> And sometimes, when we feel disconnected, we do it again to re-establish that.
Boys: 
<Loch laughs> Wait.. so.. where other couples have makeup *sex*, you guys have makeup *rape*? <smiles broadly> Seriously? <looks at Saige> You down?
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Pope> I’m not sure how does *that* work?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles at Loch> If I’m down it’s not rape.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Siobhan> It’s primal. From the dawn of time, man has been going out and conquering his woman. It’s not “rape” in legal terms, hence why most porn sites call it “forced” or even “rough”.
Girls: 
<Siobhan smiles and nods> Okay I understand, now.
Boys: 
<Van takes a sip of his drink> It’s psychological. Like the couple that enforces domestic discipline. It’s not all *that* different from tying your girl up before fucking her.
Boys: 
<Van looks at Siobhan> The difference is with “forced”, she fights back. Basically, he can’t have the prize if he’s not strong enough to overpower her and take it.
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods>
Boys: 
<Seth, quietly> And what *real* woman wants a man that isn’t?
Girls: 
<Lia listens and looks at Seth>
Girls: 
<Bonnie smiles, looks over at Pope, nods> And there’s always copious amounts of after care.
Boys: 
<Seth looks at Lia> Meaning.. a man isn’t a man if he’s not strong enough, emotionally, psychologically and physically, to protect what’s his or.. driven enough to go after it and fight for it.
Boys: 
<Van smiles at Bonnie> Babe.. your *entire* relationship could be qualified as “after care”. Do you even need it the way you two are as a general rule?
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Van> So, you’ve *seen* them slow dancing in the middle of a parking lot to no music?
Girls: 
<Bonnie smiles> Not at all.. but that’s what makes it…<looks at Pope> Everything all right. To go from forced back to the way we normally are.
Boys: 
<Van smiles at Loch> Are you kidding? They do it all the time. And it’s not restricted to parking lots. Sometimes, they’ll do it in the middle of a crowd. <nods to Bonnie> I can understand that.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles at Bonnie, to Van> The whole thing is very intense. We have to ease ourselves back down from the rush after that.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Van> But no other guy could do it with her. Because they aren’t me and she wouldn’t trust them like she does me.
Girls: 
<Bonnie shakes her head> I couldn’t and wouldn’t. Intense doesn’t begin to describe it. And he’s got a sixth sense about it.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Bonnie> I used to be a *lot* more reticent, thought, but I’ve gotten better over time.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Van> Neither one of us has had a relationship where force was part of it. So, it took some figuring out.
Boys: 
<Pope looks back at Bonnie> And a *lot* of communication.
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods> Exactly. <looks at Pope, smiles, then at Siobhan> Communication is key in *any* relationship..but especially in one like ours. There’s nothing I couldn’t or wouldn’t tell him. And I know there’s very little he wouldn’t forgive me for.
Boys: 
<Pope shakes his head> I’m pretty sure the only thing I couldn’t forgive is other men. And we don’t lie to each other or hide shit from each other.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles at Bonnie> You find someone that understands you and you can tell your secrets to and tell the truth to, you’re golden.
Boys: 
<Pope thinks> Well, that coupled with their ability and desire to meet your needs and vice versa, but.. being understood is a very basic human need.
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods and smiles> And we do that.. meet each other’s needs. I know that he loves me.. he shows me every day in the small things he does.. <looks at Loch> Like dancing to no music.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Bonnie> Hey, I thought it was cool. I thought it was cooler that he can get away with it because not a lot of dudes can.
Girls: 
<Bonnie smiles> *any* dude can get away with it, if they’re doing it for the right reason.
Boys: 
<Pope shrugs> I can get away with it because I don’t give a fuck what anyone else thinks. I care what *she* thinks. Everyone else can fuck themselves. And if they have an issue with it.. then they don’t understand that it’s about Bonnie and not my fucking ego.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at them> There is no room for pride in love.
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods> Which is exactly what I was trying to say.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Bonnie> When you *don’t* do the things she needs you to do because your pride gets in the way, then you love yourself more than her.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at the others> And the point of all consuming romantic *True* Love is that you *don’t* love yourself more. That you actually *do* love the other person more than yourself. *That’s* what makes it so noble.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles at Saige> So.. tell us about the porn script that’s all about *lust*.
Boys: 
<Van laughs> Wait..
Girls: 
<Saige smiles starts to say something and looks over at Van>
Girls: 
<The other girls smile and laugh>
Boys: 
<Van smiles at Pope> Okay.. *lust*.. what about it? We grow up being told by our parents we don’t *love* this person or that person because we’re too young and it’s just lust, and when it burns out, blah, blah, blah. So.. what about it?
Boys: 
<Pope shrugs> I don’t know. I know that.. they are sometimes separate animals and I know love gets comfortable. But I also know that I totally have what you can classify as total raging lust for Bonnie. And it’s abated *some* over the past couple of years, but it’s nowhere *near* gone.
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods> For me it’s still as strong as ever.. and I think part of that is because I know what he’s willing to do. I know what he’s done, what he’s put on the line. And why. I couldn’t leave him.. and it never crosses my mind to do that. We have our fights and when we do, we know the other’s going to be there when it’s all over. <smiles at Pope>
Boys: 
<Pope nods, looks at Van> I think lust is part of it. In any great epic love story, there is a shit ton of it coursing through the people involved. I don’t think it burns out or runs it’s course. I think it gets lost in the shuffle of all the bullshit mundane every day things we have to deal with. We get.. complacent.. because we can keep putting off the hot steamy sex til tomorrow because we know there will be one and we think we’re prioritizing. But what we’re doing is prioritizing ourselves into a corner where sex and just fucking for the sake of it gets set aside so often that we find ourselves not doing it anymore and wondering what happened to it. It’s something that has to be .. cultivated. Prioritize the hot steamy sex at the top of your list and there’s no reason why you can’t keep the lust alive for *years* to come. And when we stop having the hot steamy sex, that’s when we start to drift away from our partners and find ourselves completely disconnected. Think about it. I can’t give a ratio, but I’d say that a lot of the time, the sex doesn’t stop because the love died. The loved died because the sex stopped. Because without the sex, there’s no intimacy. Especially for women.
Boys: 
<Pope shrugs> When you find yourself in a comfortable routine, that’s when you’re in trouble. Get your ass to a sex club or a sex store. Yanno?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles>
Girls: 
<Siobhan looks at Van> I can see it.
Boys: 
<Van nods to Siobhan> Totally.
Boys: 
<Van smiles> And I totally should’ve known he’d have an answer.
Girls: 
<Lia looks at Seth, then back to Pope>
Girls: 
<Siobhan nods and smiles> He’s very…articulate.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles at Siobhan> That would be my education showing.
Girls: 
<Bonnie laughs> That and they got you talking about something you’re passionate about.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles at Bonnie> And I do love to educate the masses. <looks back at Saige> So.. if they’re done quizzing me on all things intimate.. the script?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Well.. I was thinking something similar to what we were talking about earlier with the forced submission. I wasn’t sure how many I was writing for.. but the scene takes place in a woman’s apartment after she teases a guy during ladies night.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Pope> I have some other scenes working.. The guy or guys spend a weekend breaking her then just to see if they can rebuild her. I was thinking some orgasm withholding. Maybe even in the beginning a scene where they drug her.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> I don’t want to do the vampire thing.. but I think there should be some blood play as well.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles> Liked that?
Girls: 
<Saige nods> There was something creepily intimate about it. <looks at Siobhan and if she’s up for it I think it should be real. Fake blood *always* looks fake.
Boys: 
<Pope nods> It *is* intimate. Very much so. So, the question is.. is there a place for intimacy in the scene you’re describing?
Boys: 
<Pope shrugs> Two strangers holding a girl they don’t really know hostage and breaking her, etc… not intimate. So there has to be a visible transition to the emergence of intimacy.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> There will be. Which will become apparent in the story when it’s finished. Which brings me to.. how long do I have?
Boys: 
<Pope thinks> Well.. we have to acquire the lighting and filming equipment and hire the crew to work them. <looks at her> Let’s estimate about three weeks. Two if you can pull it off.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> I will.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles> Perfect. It’ll probably be.. a month before we’re ready to start filming which gives us time to polish the script and the actors time to learn it. But that’s a conservative estimate.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles at Bonnie> We’ll *probably* be ready in about two weeks.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> I can have the first three scenes done in <thinks> probably a few days. Another question.. how long should the runtime be?
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Saige> Well.. it’s *still* porn, ultimately, so, an hour at most.
Boys: 
<Pope shrugs> 45 minutes would probably be better.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> You’ll have the finished script by this time next week.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles> Beautiful.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Is there anything specific you all want or don’t want in it?
Boys: 
<Van shakes his head> Not off the top of my head.
Boys: 
<Seth shakes his head, takes a sip of his drink>
Girls: 
<Siobhan shakes her head> I can’t think of anything.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Pope>
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Saige> Oh, I’m sure I’ll have plenty of additions and changes next week.
Girls: 
<Saige nods>All right.
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Bonnie> So, I think we can’t stop talking business for the night.
Girls: 
<Bonnie nods> I think so. <smiles> I’m sure it’s boring for those not involved.
Boys: 
<Pope smiles> Oh, I know.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Loch, smiles> Did you find it boring?
Boys: 
<Pope looks at Van> Can I talk to you for a couple of minutes? There are some things I want to go over with you.
Boys: 
<Loch smiles at Saige> It’s porn. And porn *you’re* writing. I’m not bored.
Boys: 
<Van nods> Sure. <gets up and goes outside with Pope>
Girls:
