Charmed: Fate Rewritten - The Gloves Are Off
AUTHORS' INTRODUCTION: Every CHARMED fan knows that the reason why we had two sets of Charmed Ones is because Shannen Doherty was fired by CHARMED's second executive producer Brad Kern during the hiatus between Seasons Three and Four, the reason why we never saw Prue and Paige in the same episode.
Well, what if the actress who left actually left on good terms? What if she was offered her dream role either in another television show or a movie or a play? What if she knew about this role soon enough that the executive producers could plan for her exit, actually bringing in Rose McGowan to play Paige during Season Three as The Charmed Ones' friend and innocent, so that when Shax killed a Charmed One, Paige could truly mourn that Charmed One as her friend?
What if this also meant that the second set of Charmed Ones could make contact with the ghost of their dead sister and that flashbacks could include pictures of her?
Well, Twin_Swords, Azureina, StoryGirl83 and Esmeralda, have taken that idea and ran with it, plotting out a four-season virtual series based on this idea, taking various episodes and showing how they could've been aired, and then also taking the ideas off on various tangents all our own. Some of the episodes will sound very familiar with some twists all our own; some will be totally new. In a lot of cases "canon" from Seasons Three through Eight will be changed to fanon all our own, although we have attempted to keep the canon from Seasons One and Two. We are not necessarily trying to do CHARMED better; we are just trying to do it differently -- a true virtual alternate universe series that we hope CHARMED fans will enjoy.
Due to Real Life, Twin_Swords and Azureina are no longer able to work on this project, but StoryGirl and Esmeralda, with lots of help from our betas, Primrose_Empath and Silverstar03, have continued on.
Although we have a long ways to go before we are ready to "air" our series, we've decided to "air" our pilot as a
