Doctor Who-The Timeless Children: Renegade Cut [Fanedit]

Timeless Children Renegade

 

Just today I worked out how to edit “The Timeless Children” to my satisfaction

It was the previous episode, “Ascension of the Cybermen” that provided me with the alternative to the Timeless Child (a twist I have no issue with and am open to, but this edit is for friends of mine who aren’t on board.since The Doctor’s past with the Division was probably the most genuinely compelling part of the whole revelation, why not make the journey into the Matrix ALL ABOUT THAT hmm? So gone is Tecteun and child experimentation, and in comes how Brendan was recruited. Nothing about the Doctor’s origin is made too clear, so this is very much not just a renegade cut but a “Cartmal Cut”, revealing backstory but keeping the Doctor’s truth a bit distant. Andrew Cartmal himself wasn’t very satisfied with the timeless children twist either. 

Oh, and for kicks, I replaced the Morbius Doctor with something altogether different…won’t spoil what, but I figured it was a worthy inclusion

Sliders-Revelations: Resolved [Fanedit]

Sliders Revelations Resolved

password: fanedit

The first two seasons of the cult show SLIDERS were ahead of it’s time, tackling major issues through the lenses of alternate worlds where said issues make substantial impact on society…but by the third season onwards, the show went down a deep dark rabbit hole…only it didn’t wind up in Wonderland.

In time, beloved fan favourite characters were killed off or written out and a a struggle against dimension-hopping alien warriors stripped the show of all nuance and believably. The fifth season ended on a bitter note, leaving the fates of the characters up in the air.

This short fan-edit looks to try and change that. Made with fans of the show in mind, Revelations: Resolved takes the best moments of an otherwise bait-and-switch story and cuts out everything to do with the twist ending (spoiler: the Mallories are not home), everything plays out like a firm goodbye to most of the cast and gives the sole remaining Slider more of a hopeful ending to his arc.

For fun, I took the final moments of the official episode and repurposed them as a cold open, in keeping with some of the antics the friends would always get up to when we popped in on them before the next big slide.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix: Dark Stand [Fanedit]

dpdslog

It took a few cracks, but I did it…I made Dark Phoenix work with X-Men: The Last Stand, to function as a third in the trilogy that began with Days of Future Past and continued with Apocalypse.

Cut List

-Film begins with the first fifty-four minutes of Dark Phoenix, only without the aliens popping up

-The DP footage comes to an end when Teen Jean departs Magneto’s island, from there Last Stand footage begins with the Danger Room sequence (because it has the line “the not too distant future” at the start to indicate the passage of time)

-Scott’s PTSD over Jean is now repurposed. Instead of seeing her drown, he sees her absorb the Phoenix force in space. Scott departs the X-Mansion to clear his head (we know he returns in DOFP’s final scene so we’re good)

-Logan knows of Jean in this timeline as a continuity nod to their meeting in X-Men Apocalypse. There is no romantic connection between them this time.

-Beast’s visit to the X-Mansion in the present day is now much more formal due to the tension between Hank and Charles in the past. Exchange with Logan shortened

-Instead of seeking out Mystique, Magneto seeks out Jean.

-Xavier ‘sensing’ Jean at the lake moved to after Magneto and Jean have a conversation at Magneto’s base camp. Blackbird arrives at the lake and Logan storms the camp looking for Jean. Gets involved in fights.

-Film proceeds apace, Magneto and his forces attack Alcatraz, X-Men suit up to stop them. We see Warren Worthington, but he has more of a mystery about him, now he’s just a student at Xavier’s school wanting a piece of the action and help out where he can.

-Logan and Jean’s meeting from X-Men Apocalypse inserted into his final battle with Phoenix. Memories of this allows Jean to regain control and beg Logan to save her. He stabs her.

-Jean is only wounded, not killed. We see her back at the mansion being tended to by Xavier. Teen Jean voice-over about evolution plays over Jean’s comatose body as Logan watches her. We’re led to believe Jean will recover and reunite with Scott, which we see in the final scenes of Days of Future Past.

-Last Stand ending is as normal. Post-credit scene removed (Xavier doesn’t die, so no need for it), Last Stand end credits used throughout because I’m too lazy to merge it with DP credits.

Doctor Who-Can You Hear Me? Excerpt [Script Fanedit]

 

INT. TARDIS – DAY

 

GRAHAM O’BRIEN

— I worry.

(Beat)

About getting sick again. About the cancer recurring.

(Beat)

I don’t know who to say that to. So I thought I’d said it to you.

(Beat)

Seeing as you’re a Doctor. (Beat)

Once you have it, it’s with you all the time. Not quite a shadow.

I mean, my check-ups are all fine. But it made me think.

(Beat)

I thought I should talk about it. Cos, those nightmares, made me realise, that fear’s still there..

The Doctor nods. Beat. She walks towards Graham-she reaches for both his hands and places them in her own-she smiles

CUT TO:

THE DOCTOR

I should say a reassuring thing now, shouldn’t I? About life, maybe just a little about death. Does life sound like just the thing for you?

GRAHAM O’BRIEN

Yeah. Probably.

THE DOCTOR

Thought so

 (Beat)

They say the fear of the unknown is a lot worse than when it actually arrives-when it does-no, if it does-you won’t give in to it, you’ll stare it dead in the eye, the face of death itself, and you’ll say ‘you come and find me, and you drag me away, but I won’t contribute’-because you’re strong Graham, the strongest man I know, I meant every word of that-the fear is there, but here you are too. Standing still while the tide threatens to wash over you, refusing to be pulled in. Promise me you never will.

GRAHAM O’BRIEN

I can try Doc

(Beat)

The Doctor leans forward and gives Graham a soft kiss on the cheek

THE DOCTOR

       Glad you heard me

GRAHAM O’BRIEN

OK

(she moves away)

(whisper)

I love you too Doc

 

Also added a couple of extra moments of dialogue, have fun looking out for them

Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie: Happy Edit After [Fanedit]

HeyArnold-72005

 

Nothing too radical about this one, there’s just one cut, one tiny cut, and the rest of the film is the same and plays as normal. The trim in question was Helga’s reaction to Arnold holding her hand towards the end…in the original version, she plays hard to get and tells Arnold off for touching her before walking ahead of him keeping a smile to herself, with Arnold also smiling and taking the rejection in his stride.

From my understanding, this twist was done as a tease for potential future seasons where Helga would continue to hide her feelings for Arnold from her class and Arnold would have to deal with being in a secret relationship with her, but Nickelodeon passed on the opportunity for future episodes, so the ending comes off as a bit mean-spirited and confusing considering they’d both went through hell in the film and earned their romantic moment.

So yeah, all I did was remove Helga telling Arnold off, after Helga initially swoons happily at the gesture, we cut to the two catching up to Phoebe and Gerald just before Arnold’s parents ask if they can follow them to school. That’s it, the show ends with Helga content to be in a relationship with the boy she hates yet loves.
