Alright, so some might remember the videos I uploaded back a good amount of months ago. Basically, I was adapting a roleplay into youtube videos. Only two videos of this were actually uploaded, and it kinda stopped there, because there were so few people who were both willing and able to help. Plus, I was having trouble finishing the script.
Back in January, I rewrote the entire script for the next episode, and pitched it for my friends. The roleplay had died down by that point. However, it seems we are getting back together now, so I guess this would be a perfect time to release my script for all to see.
I would love some feedback on this. Also, feel free to offer help in actually making the video.

Episode one: [link]
Narrator: Hello, and welcome to episode two of ALONE!!! Last time, Esmeralda fell into a coma, and Tory left his shelter and moved to the neighboring town, which is where the story will be centered around for a while. But for now, let's get on with it.
Narrator: This guy's name is Robo. And before you ask, NO! HE IS DEFINATELY AND ABSOLUTELY NOT A ROBOT! So, he is... twelve... Okay. He lives in a shelter which he dug himself. WAIT, WHAT?! No way! I don't believe it! I refuse! He was two when he and his family moved into the shelter, and now, ten years later, he is twelve years old and the only survivor and he's insane. That explains everything. Okay, so he leaves his shelter. Now what? Uh. Nothing. Oh well, let's just say he hit his head on the wall and fell into a coma. There you go! Okay, that's enough from me.
Coal: (fades in) It's very cold out here. Did you bring a jacket?
Coal: God damn it! I told you to bring a jacket.
Ember: Um... no.
Coal: Anyway, why the hell did I give you my boots? These bandages are awful! And it doesn't help that the staircase is riddled with pebbles and-
Ember: Coal, you're rambling again.
Coal: Oh... Sorry.
Ember: It's fine. We're outside now.
Coal: Uh... (breathing heavily) Oh god!
Ember: Ooh! Flowers! Real flowers!
Coal: Ember, I'm gonna go look around for a bit. You stay here, okay?
Ember: I promise.
Coal: Good. I'm gonna go now. Uh, don't be afraid, I'll be back soon.
Ember: I know.
Ember: (to the audience) Hello, my name's Ember! And that was my big brother Coal. He's not too bright. Man you are so pretty! I wish I could take yo with me. Oh, yes! That's right. I can. (camera reveals Ember is actually talking to the flowers)
Coal: Hey, I'm Coal. And that was my sister Ember. She's a bit of a scatterbrain sometimes, but she's okay. Anyway, I'm really scared right now. I just left Ember alone, and... I'm not quite sure why I did that. (extended pause) Right, so uh, my name is Coal, and uh... Man, this isn't working. Worst therapist ever.
(rifle's safety clicks off)
Tory: Who are you?
Coal: (talking fast) I'm Coal and I come in peace!
Tory: Drop the weapon!
Tory: Drop. The. Weapon!
(stick hits the ground)
Tory: Good boy.
(rifle's safety clicks on)
Tory: What are you doing out here?
Coal: I was just scouting the area-
Tory: How can you just walk aroud exposed like that?!
Tory: The disease. It's all over the place, and you're not even wearing a mask!
Coal: Oh, that. Yeah, I didn't really think that far. I was just sick of living in a boring old cave, so I took with me my sister to the surface... My sister!
Tory: That doesn't sound good. Did you leave her alone?
Tory: You idiot! What were you thinking?!
Coal: I don't know!
Tory: You stupid little- Nope. Sorry. Let's go find your sister.
Amy: Dear diary. Alone. I'm all alone. Why because everyone eventually dies, and at the end, there's only one left. And that person is all alone. I'm all alone. Or am I? I don't rightly know. I bet there are way better survivors out there than me. I only managed to wait for ten years. Well, only a month of that has been in complete solitude. I mean, that would be impressive, right? Anyway, I'm going outside today. It's about time I made the decision, actually. I guess I've just been afraid. What if the disease is still there? Well, I'm screwed anyway. All this food isn't going to last forever. And I have no idea how to operate the farm. How does it even work? It's underground. Anyway, I'm out. Goodbye.
(rusty door opens)
(walking volume rises)
(Ember hides in bush)
Ember: Who is that?
Amy: (singing a song (song in question may be discussed later))
Ember: I'm gonna go follow her.
(Amy and Ember absconds)
Coal: She's not here!
Tory: Damn it! Do you know where she may have gone?
Ember: These flower petals should help Coal find me when he returns. (pause) Huh? She's walking in random directions, as if she's not really sure where she's going.
Amy: Is someone following me?
Ember: No, it's not like that. I just...
Amy: Who are you?
Ember: My name's Ember! What's yours?
Amy: I'm Amy.
Ember: Nice to meet you, Aim!
Amy: No, Amy. Ay – Mee.
Ember: Yeah, that's what I said.
Amy: No, you said-
Ember: Look at this flower, Aim!
Amy: Yeah, that's a flower. It doesn't have any petals, though.
Ember: Thats because I tore them off.
Amy: Why would you do that?!
Ember: So that I wouldn't get lost like you!
Amy: Oh, you left a trail of flower petals. Hold on, I'm not lost!
Ember: You didnt seem to be going anywhere particular.
Amy: Yeah, that's still not lost. I may have lived under a rock for like ten years, but I still know my hometown! That's McDonalds over there. Well, it used to be.
Ember: My point is you shouldn't be walking around aimlessly like this. (dramatic) It's dangerous to go alone.
Amy: Very funny. Sure, let's be friends.
Ember: Great! Now just follow me and I will take you to my brother so that we can kill you and eat you alive.
Amy: Wait what?
Amy: What did you just say?
Ember: I didn't say anything.
Amy: You said something about eating me alive...
Ember: That's just silly! Only cannibals do that. Now, follow me!
Coal: Oh, hey. She left a trail of flower petals.
Tory: Clever girl. Let's go find her.
Coal: So... what's with the rifle?
Tory: The world isn't what it used to be. There are wild animals all over the place just waiting for the right opportunity to jump at you, tear you apart, and eat you alive.
Tory: With any luck, your sister hasn't been killed by a wild animal.
Coal: Man... That's brutal.
Tory: Yup. That's life, bro. Get used to it.
(Ember & Amy meet Tory & Coal)
Coal: There you are! I was so worried! Why did you run off?
Ember: I met a friend. This is Aim.
Ember: That's what I said.
Tory: As much as I'd like to stay and chat, we should really keep moving. It's not a good idea to stay in one place for more time than nessecary. I learned that the hard way.
Tory: Snore... snore... snore...
Tory: Oh fuck!
(rifle's safety clicks off and fires)
Tory: Good god... Can't a guy get any sleep?
Coal: I agree with Tory.
Ember: But you haven't introduced him yet!
Coal: His name is Tory, and he has a gun. That's really all you need to know.
Ember: Cool. I like guns.
Coal: No! Guns are bad! Bad bad bad bad bad!
Tory: Shut up and get moving!
Tory: Oh fuck!
Tory: Run away! I can handle this!
Coal: No way. I'm not leaving you behind.
(rock hits dog)
Coal: Barkface! Come and get some! Works line ever...
(dog growls and barks)
Ember: Big brother!
Tory: Come on, Aim. We can't let them get away. If the dog kills Coal, Ember is all on her own.
Amy: My name is Amy.
Tory: Who fucking cares?!
Narrator: Will Ember manage to save her brother? Will Robo ever wake up from his coma? Will I ever learn to reference the actual roleplay so I can remember what really happened? Seriously. I had this awesome part with cutting off Coal's foot and stuff... Oh well. I guess we'll never get to see that. Thank god. Oh right. Will Coal ever lose his foot? Find out next time on..........
