OUAT flashback videos, Chapter 3: Cora and Eva



Now, on the topic of OUAT, I am thinking this for a rewatch:

(1) Start a community called Twice Upon A Time (oh, the cleverness of me!) - It is here 2ceuponatime
(2) Watch one episode a week. No big rush to get to season 2 or to finish before the new season starts. I am thinking a Sunday evening NA Eastern time zone 8 pm time slot for when posts on the latest ep are welcome.
(3) Allow anyone who is a member of the comm to post new posts with thots.
(4) Get someone more artistic than me to give us a cool banner.

Low stress, fun paramount. Thots?

Eep, I've been meaning to get back to this rewatch question, but my brain has been kind of non-existent lately. I'm glad you're still pondering on it. And I think these thoughts are good thoughts, especially the comm name (because maybe it's obvious in retrospect, but it fits very well!). Two considerations that come to mind:

1) Sunday evenings seem like a fine time to me, but that leads me to consider the question of whether we'll want to keep going after the new season starts -- in which case (unless they change the time slot) there will be new episodes on Sundays -- or stop at whatever ep we've gotten to, until the next hiatus. Probably a new ep and a rewatch ep is a bit too much to handle at once, though.

And 2) I was initially thinking of something like "mod puts up a post for discussion on each ep, people post thoughts in comments" rather than "comm members make their own comment posts," just because I've seen that more often, but now that I think about it, I don't know that there are actually many advantages to doing it that way. So either approach seems OK to me.

Hopefully some kind artistic soul will be able to contribute a banner! Alas, my own artistic ability is less than zero...

That's pretty much the plan.

Either a post for people to comment on, or open comm to new posts so people can have threads of comments for particular topics that interest them and the discussion doesn't get buried after 50 comments are posted.

Or both. Advantages, disadvantages.

I just don't want to have to do a post where I have to think up initial thoughts to focus the discussion because I'm trying to make this as low-stress on the mods as possible.

Sounds like a reasonable plan to me.

Yeah, who needs focused thoughts and directed discussion, anyway? I'd rather just let people say whatever they want to say, even apart from the unnecessary stress of thinking up conversation starters.

We will probably still have to do it a little bit, just to kick-start people in the butt. But once they are kicked, they get on a roll.

Yeah, and they probably only need a little kicking.

And I see we have a comm now. Yay!!!!

When were you thinking of getting started? I suppose we could just jump into it next weekend, if people are ready.

I think this is a great idea! I don't have the DVDs, but I'm going to follow along as best I can.
