Quote:This is the final story that featrures idea Ryan had for where his characters would go. It's odd in a away, an extended goobye through his ideas and writing. Unquote: You wrote this at the beginning of Politics posted 06/16/2019. Just wondering if that was meant to be that the Sanitaria Springs Stories were done or if just the last we'd here from the Kirkwoods? I can only hope that's a no to both because there is so much left to be told I'm sure. Thanks
No, not the final episode of the series. When story lines were plotted, Ryan and I would spend a lot of time chatting and exploring possibilities. Some ideas would have to be delayed so that they'd fit into the timeline, and this was one such idea. In fact, James Savik was also involved in part of the pre-planning that went into this story - way back then. Ryan had the idea that Jamie would grow up to go into politics, and that part of the catalyst would be an injury that put sports on the sideline for him. I've laid the groundwork by having Jamie ponder getting things done, helping people and possibly running for school office in earlier episodes.
What my statement at the beginning of the chapter meant was this was the last idea Ryan and I had discussed, and thus the last of his influence. I can honestly say I don't have plans to attempt to write from Kale or Chase's POV. You will see more of Robin, as I claimed him early on and have written him quite a bit. I have no current plans for more Jamie, but it's a possibility.
