Together, let’s save the Constantine TV Show, Friday April 24th!

Constantine1How many times has your favorite TV show been near the cancellation axe and you wanted the show to be saved?

I have many shows that I wish could have been saved, such as Dracula, Angel, The Tomorrow People, Star Crossed, The Secret Circle, Dallas reboot, Super Fun Night, Raising Hope, Sarah Connor Terminator, The Dollhouse, Firefly!Cast

I could go on an on.  Constantine reminds me of Supernatural, gone wild.  You have the Angel character, a mystic, bad-ass nun, demons trying to get babies!  Weird, right?

I’m so glad that NBC is giving Constantine one last chance to get viewers.  So if you have not had a chance to check out this great show and awesome companion to Grimm, then please join the Constantine streaming event on NBC, Hulu, & VOD.

TVSD3: Can Nefertiti Tame Dracula?

Chapter 6A - Nefertiti15th century BC, Egypt

“Your majesty…I have traveled many leagues, across land and water, from a distant kingdom, to reach you this evening….” the tall and well dressed foreigner had said with a sweeping bow in her throne room, several weeks ago.

He was a strange man; his skin was much more pale than anyone from any land the Egyptians knew, and he insisted on only venturing outside when the sun was down, insisting this behavior to be royal custom in his native land.

Back then, Nefertiti never would have thought she’d be doing with him what she was right now. She moaned as his lips and tongue graced her nipple, circling and sucking gently and producing a great amount of pleasure. She lay naked on her luxurious bed, allowing the mysterious Prince Dracula to take her. His dark eyes beneath dark hair gleamed with devilish glee as he mounted her, and passionately kissed her neck. She wrapped her hands and arms around his back and the back of his head, and moaned again as he penetrated deep into her over and over again.

Nine months from that night, Nefertiti gave birth to her and Dracula’s son. Little did she know, that this was only Black vampirethe second child for Dracula to father in these lands: the other was born to the Princess Giana, a jealous rival of Nefertiti…

Los Angeles, 1980

Drake reached across Gia’s lap to grab the seat handle and lower the seat back flat in the front of his fancy black Cadillac. As the couple passionately made out, and Drake grasped Gia’s breast and began to lift up her shirt, Gia thought of how unusual it was for her to be with a man like this so soon after meeting him. They’d just both been partying at a club, and the way Drake spoke with that sexy Eastern European accent, and the way he confidently touched her just turned her on like mad. And his eyes; so dark, so mysterious yet so piercing. She opened her eyes to see his now, and enjoyed the loss of control as he gripped her thighs and got to work. Waves of pleasure rippled through her body and her soul as Drake took her. She felt herself sink into those beautiful dark eyes…

TVDS3: Scheherazade’s Tall Tales at our Family Reunion

Chapter 4Once inside the party, Ro’Zha was approached by a woman she knew immediately. It was her cousin Scheherazade who told all of those wonderful stories about the Arabian nights. But Scheherazade was wearing the same strange modern dress as everyone else at the party. No matter, Scheherazade, whom people were calling Shera, took her by the arm and lead her into the throng, speaking closely to her ear.

“I know how you got here,” she said. “The magic carpet, the potion. Genie stole those from Queen Nayture. You’ll have to watch out for both of them from now on.” Ro’Zha looked at Shera questioningly. “Right now, though, there is someone I know you are going to want to meet,” Shera continued.

The two women stopped in front of a playpen that was sitting in a corner and Shera lifted the little boy out from the playpen. Ro’Zha recognized him immediately, too, and her heart leapt as she reached for him. It was her own baby boy, Nate. Prince Nate. She hugged her baby to her.

“I thought I would never see him again,” Ro’Zha said.

“Souls have a way of returning to the same families,” Shera explained. “We were just keeping an eye on him until you could return to claim him.”

Ro’Zha hugged her baby tightly, and then spying Ramses in the next room talking to her double, the one they all called Granny, she headed straight for them.

In the meantime, all of the children came and surrounded Shera demanding stories. Shera laughed and led them all over to the sofa; many of them sat on the floor around her. Shera reached under the coffee table and pulled out several photo albums, some of them quite old. “I’m going to tell you a story about you,” Shera told them.

The children all gathered in close as she opened one of the oldest photo albums and saw pictures of themselves looking back. These pictures were quite old, some were brittle and some were printed on thin metal plates. In each of the pictures they wore strange hair styles and funny clothes.

“Did you use Photoshop to make these?” one little girl asked.

TVDS3: Sultan’s Dance of the 7 Veils

Chapter 2Ro’Zha arrived in Arabia and travels to meet up with a group of harem belly dancers. They had all studied belly dance together and kept in touch via pigeon messengers. Zannube, the leader of the harem met Ro’Zha at the dock when she arrived.

How do you like dancing for the Sultan, she asked Zannube? Zannube replied, he is a wonderful person to dance for. He gives the dancers tips and makes sure that they have the best belly dance costumes and continue dance lessons with Scheherazade.

However, I must warn you, that his wife Ammut is extremely jealous of the dancers. So be very careful and try not to dance your best when she is around. Ammut was a dancer a long time ago and that was how she met the Sultan. But then she was bitten by a snake and after that was no longer able to dance.

Ammut’s specialty dances were the Dance of the Snake and the Dance of the 7 Veils, so make sure that you don’t perform either dance for the Sultan.

Ro’Zha asked Zannube if the rumor was true that the Sultan will sometimes award a dancer with 3 wishes. Zannube said the rumor was true, but does not happen very often now that Ammut is his wife. You would have to do a very special dance to gain his favor for the 3 wishes, warned Zannube.

What dances are we performing tonight for the Sultan, asked Ro’Zha? Tonight we are doing a special Pharonic dance with candles. Let’s go rehearse right now.

Sultan Bakkar sneaks in the watch the dress rehearsal. He is quite taken with the newest member of the troupe, Ro’Zha. Who is this new delightful dancer, he asked Zannube. That is my old friend Ro’Zha who is visiting from the nearby kingdom of Egypt. Bring her to my private chamber immediately! Yes sire, replied Zannube.

TVDS3: Ro’Zha Dreams of Genie

Asian woman sitting on a magic carpet“Choose carefully,” the Genie had said, “you may be surprised by what you get.” Well, she had chosen the magic carpet because it was a mode of transportation that didn’t require nearly the maintenance that other modes of transportation did. And really, who couldn’t use a magic carpet?

As it turned out, not even the Genie’s magic was strong enough to break the night walker’s curse. “There is only one person who can do that,” he told her. “You must seek Queen Nayture.”

Seeking out Queen Nayture was going to be a whole journey unto itself. In the meantime, she asked that she never run out of the magic potion that Ramses gave her. Ramses had given her many things, not the least of which was a son which she named for Ramses. This was a wish the Genie could grant and it was done. She tucked the bottle into a pouch she carried slung over her shoulder. The bottle should be safe there.

The Genie was anxious to grant the third wish so that he could be free and on his way again. Ro’Zha thought about the swirling forces of time and space that had brought her to Ramses in the first place and had taken him away again and she knew what she wanted more than anything.

“Genie,” she had said to him, “take me to my true love.”

As time and space began to fold around her, she believed she could feel Ramses arms around her once again. She must have fallen asleep, because when she awoke, she was lying on the magic carpet, her pouch beneath her head. She sat up and looked around. It was night. The structures around her were all very strange looking. They were geometric shapes, like the pyramids, except the pyramids were triangles. These were boxes with a peak on top and there was light coming from many of them. There were also enormous torches up and down the walks that gave off light. She looked at the structure she stood in front of. If this was a home, there must be many people living here. It was a pretty big size. It didn’t look like the ancient Egypt where she had last seen Ramses, but this is where the Genie had deposited her, so she rolled up her carpet, tucked it into the bag with the magic potion and slung the whole thing over her shoulder.

TVDS3: Salome’s Harem Dancer

Chapter 1Once upon a time, there was a harem dancer in Egypt. Her job was to choreograph the dance troupe that entertained Queen Salome and her guests during dinner. The dancer’s name was Ro’Zha. Ro’Zha was having a secret affair with Salome’s beloved husband, King Ramses. Now she was pregnant with his child. So far she had been able to hide her belly under silk caftans, but her midwife, Etienne, warned that the child was due any day now.

Etienne loved to gossip, so she could not wait to tell all of the other dancers about the secret love child. Salome overheard the gossip and flew into a jealous rage. She consulted the palace witch, Malice, to hex a spell on Ro’Zha.

Malice came up with an evil spell. Ro’Zha will always be tethered to Salome throughout space and time. Salome will always be her master and Ro’Zha will always serve her as maiden or slave. Furthermore, every generation of Ro’Zha’s children will inherit night walker blood of the vampires.

Etienne overheard the queen speaking with Malice and now she felt guilty about Ro’Zha’s fate. So she confessed to Ro’Zha what she had done and begged for her forgiveness. Ro’Zha was overcome with grief because she did not want the witch’s curse. Etienne suggested that she seek out the Sultan of Bagdad. He was a big fan of the all the belly dancers in the harem and would grant them favors in exchange for a “special” show.

Ro’Zha cried out in pain, as she was having labor contractions now. Etienne warned her to be as quiet as possible, so that Salome will not hear her. Etienne gathered the dance troupe members and they performed a floor dance to Chiftitelli while Ro’Zha gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. What name will you give this child, asked Etienne? I will call him Prince Nate Ram. The dancers shouted their zaghareets as they congratulated Ro’Zha on the birth of her child. Etienne promised to hide the baby in a secret chamber to keep them safe from Salome.

The winners from 2090, the Collins (LaBelle, Jack, Ed, Lisa and Barnaby), were on hand to pick the Location and Year for this year’s competition.

LaBelle took the mic and announced that the Year will be 1900 and the Location will be St. Louis, MO. Each team had 1 hour for each competition (Vampire Defense, Best Power and Shifting), with 10 TrekCaptainsminutes to prepare for each challenge.

First each team has a 10 minute limit to use their Best Power to shift them into the time and place for the event. Once they arrive, they must “Glamour” the location so that no ordinary citizens can view the guests from the future.

After all judges and audience members have teleported there to view, then each team can start the first competition – Vampire Defense.

The Judges will eliminate 1 of the 7 teams during the 10 minute intermission using a combination of their scores and the audience votesMarilyn3
The remaining 6 teams will now compete in the Best Power competition.
The Judges will eliminate 1 of 6 teams during the last 10 minute intermission.
The remaining 5 teams will now compete in the Strongest Shifter competition.
The Judges will eliminate 1 of 5 teams after the Shifter competition.
The remaining 5 teams will go to the Semi-Finals.

TwilightTo ensure that there would absolutely be no CHEATING, a special enforcement team of Super Witches will oversee all Glamour, potions, spells, voodoo and seeing past and future events. Just, then very charming ladies took the stage. LaBelle said, “May I present our Special Witch Police for the Vampire Olympics: Meddling Granny, Prunes, Pippa, Feeble and Pageant! Don’t these ladies look charming?”

The crowded went wild with excitement, especially since Meddling Granny and Prunes had not died in the Alternate Universe.

Bom said, “Let the 3000 Vampire Olympics competition begin!”Charmed

The 7 Teams passed the Torch from team to team and then Bom lit the cauldron with the torch flame.

Bom said, ‘I am proud to present this year’s competitors. Please give a warm welcome to the following teams.”

Each team came out 1 by 1 and was applauded loudly by the crowd:

  • Mutant Weirdoes (SunniHell, CA)

    Marla (Marilyn Monroe from the Alternate Universe, Glamour Dancer)
  • Spare Tracks (Railroad Captains from the Future)

    Picky John (Borg, Can seduce any woman or man)
    Bill Fatner (Can smash vampires by sitting on them)
    Copy Hipburns (Glamour Dancer)
    Archie Dracula (Leaps while Ruining Cult Favorites)VampireDiary1
  • Butchers & Bakers (Jackson, MS)
    Big Daddy (Butcher)
    Granny Smith (Witch)
    Aunt Ethel (Country Cooking & Potions)
    Dolf Jr. (Werewolf)
    Sherry (Glamour Dancer & can Freeze Time)
  • The Braden Hunchbacks (Notre Dame, IN)
    Mitchell Braden (Wife Beater)
    Caroline Braden (Witch)
    Jane Braden (Can Freeze Time)
    Cynthia Braden (Can see past & future events)
    Alyce Braden (Glamour Dancer & can Move Items)

Then Meddling Granny announced that it was time for each team to use their Super powers to take their team back iBrideFrankensteinn time to St. Louis, MO in 1900.

Team Butchers & Bakers were the first team to arrive in St. Louis. They had an advantage since Big Daddy had family there in town. So they were quite familiar with the town and townsfolk. Granny Smith laughed as she saw the ladies of that time wearing those God-awful heavy dresses. She remembered wearing those dresses how hot they were during the summer. Big Daddy and Granny visited their relatives, who taught them a quick dance. The dance will come in handy during the competition because it was from the 1900s.

The Glamour Dancers and Voodoo Dancers from the other teams were planning to use dances from the 1900s as well to impress the judges. They studied from Loie Fuller and other dancer greats who taught them Ballroom and Tango dances.

TangoEach team can get 2 extra points for great dancing skills shown during each 3 parts of the competition. So dance was very important if you wanted to win.

The first team, Le Monsters, took the stage to show off their Vampire Defense Skills. This team had been around the longest but their killings skills were campy, old school and stale. Then it was time for the Mutant Weirdoes. This team had actually set the pace for any other Genre Team that followed. The Collins, Charming Special Witch Police and Diary of the Mad Vamps had all copied and imitated their style to become cult favorites.

The Mutant Weirdoes had a special skill of “Trash Talking” and using a certain slang and cracking jokes whilst vanquishing the vampires. They easily won the Buffy ParkVampire Defense Competition.

The worst team in Vampire Defense was The Braden Hunchbacks. There was too much bickering during the Vampire Defense, with Jane shouting, “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha” while she froze time. Then they had the nerve to try to vanquish a vamp while posing on a staircase. That move was so out of style from 1969. They were loudly booed as they were eliminated and thrown out.

Next came the Best Power Competition. The Turd Blue team Elvis2showed a fantastic tree offering and transformation into a Dionysus-worshipping Maenad. The crowd went wild and the ratings soared for their sponsor GoHoBos. The ladies in the audience swooned when Pelvis sang the song “Bad Things” and transformed it to a chant for Snookie, “I want to do real bad things to you.” The ladies just loved hearing him say, “Snookie” in that sexy, Deep South twang.

The Spare Tracks team did awful in the Best Power category. They tried to transform an audience member into a Borg by chanting, “Resistance is Futile.” But the audience member was listening to music from their IPod so the transformation did not work.. So the Spare Track team members begin turning on each other and shouting insults like, “Bill why didn’t you sit on that vamp and smash him. Archie why didn’t you leap into that into audience member and pretend to be a Borg? Way to go Archie, you have lost all of our cult followers now!” The crowd booed “Beam them up Snotty” as the team teleported away from the competition.Janeway

The final category was Best Shape Shifter. The Diary of the Mad Vamps team easily won this category. They shifted into their versions of doubles from the Alternate Universe. But not only that, they conjured the St. Louis Arch fromborg the year 1967, since the competition was held in the same location, but it hadn’t been built yet. To top that off, they showed the judges a time relapse movie of the Arch as it was being planned from a model from 1947 to 1963. Then they showed a mirror image of the 1967 Arch next to the 2067 Arch. The judges gave them extra points since the Arch from 2067 was copper, not green. The crowd went wild when they saw the Arch. The Diary of the Mad Vamps easily won the Best Shape Shifter category.

The ending order of the Teams for the 3 categories were:

  1. Diary of the Mad Vamps, 1st placeArch
  2. Turd Blue, 2nd place
  3. Mutant Weirdoes, 3rd place
  4. Butchers & Bakers, 4th place
  5. Spare Tracks, 5th place
  6. Braden Hunchbacks, 6th place
  7. Le Monsters, 7th place

The remaining 4 teams were very proud that they will be moving on the Semi-Finals of the Vampire Olympics.

Angela from the Mutant Weirdoes Team shouted, “Let’s get Ready to Rumble for our next Vampire Olympic Showdown in St. Louis!”
