Dear Amy Lee

I don’t know if this weill reach you but I hope it will because OMG you are the greatest singer EVAH! snd Evanescense is my FAVORITE BAND, so kewl.I mean it, and everyone thinks so, all mu friends.

My name is Amy, too! Well, really Amanda but eveyone calls me Amy, at least my friends do LOL. I go to high School, I;m in the 9th grade at Rutger Hauer High School here in Santa Monica, and I'm writing to you b/c I am a writer too, LOL, not like you, I don't write songs, but I write stories. Have you heard of fanfic? I wrote some about you and the band but it sux so I wont sent it to you, but I had and idea and I thought maybe you would want to do it? It would be a great movie, or even a tv movie, and if you would be in it, or write music for it, it would rock really alot more than it does already.

I wrote this for Mr. Rabinowitz's Creative Wiritng Class, and even tho I only got a B-, I think its good, but even if it sux, Its like a play, that's how I wrote it. Do you know about Due SOuth? It was like my mom's favorite show (its really old, like her, but it's GR8! About a Mounty from Canada, LOL, and Ray, he's a cop in Chicago. They love ach other. When the play starts, Fraser (the Mounty) is dead. It's still a love story).

I wanted you to see it, b/c mayebe it will make you write some songs about Ray and Frasier, and you could put them on your next CD and put my name in the credits, which would be AWESOME.

So here it is. (MR. Rabinowitx gave me the title, btw, b/c I never heard of the word b/4. So maybe you would have to thank him too.)

Here it goes! I'm sorry if its bad, it’s the first play I've done.
OMG I'm really nervous!!111!!!

Ectoplasm of Love

SCENE 1. Rays Apartment.

Ray is sitting in the dark, crying. And listening to EVANESSENSE:

"Even In Death"

Give me a reason to believe that you're gone
I see your shadow so I know they're all wrong
Moonlight on the soft brown earth
It leads me to where you lay
They took you away from me but now I'm taking you home

Ray: Oh Frasier! Why did you have to die?

Frasier's VOice: He says the words over the [CHORUS:]

I will stay forever here with you
My love
The softly spoken words you gave me
Even in death our love goes on

Yes, Ray, even in death our love goes on.

Ray: (COvers his ears, falls on floor, cries) Oh no! I'm hearing your voice, Fraser!
I'm going crazy!!!

Some say I'm crazy for my love, Oh my love
But no bonds can hold me from your side, Oh my love
They don't know you can't leave me
They don't hear you singing to me

Fraser's voice: [Chorus]
I will stay forever here with you
My love
The softly spoken words you gave me
Even in death our love goes on

Fraser: Ray, Ray, I still love you!

And I can't love you, anymore than I do
People die, but real love is forever.

Ray crawls over to a photo of Fraser) That's right, Fraser, real love is forever. (He kisses the picture) Why, oh, why Fraser did you have to die in that fire, even if you were saving those babies and the other ppl?
(He gets a BEER and drinks it all withone gulp.) I can't live without you, my love!

"Going Under"

Now I will tell you what I've done for you
50 thousand tears I've cried
Screaming Deceiving and Bleeding for you
And you still won't hear me
(I’m going under)

(Ray goes to the kitchen and gets a knife. )

RAY: Bleeding…blood. My blood for you, Frase.

EVENASSANCE: Don't want your hand this time I'll save myself
Maybe I'll wake up for once
Not tormented daily defeated by you
Just when I thought I'd reached the bottom
I'm dying again

(Ray sits on the couch and looks at the picture. He looks at the knife. Photo. Knife, photo, Kinfe, Photo. Knife.) Huh.

What should I do, Fraser? I don't want to live without you.

FRASER;S VOICE: Don't do it, RAY!

(Ray dosen't listen. He takes the knife and makes a little cut on the back of his arm. ) Ow! (He has some beer) I can do this. For you, Fraser!!1

I'm going under
Drowning in you
I'm falling forever
I've got to break through
I'm going under

So go on and scream

(Ray screams)

Scream at me I'm so far away
I won't be broken again
I've got to breathe I can't keep going under

RAY; (turns his hand over and starts to cut his wrist.) For you.

FRASER: (BEcomes solid) RAY!!!!


Crawling through this world as disease flows through my veins
I look into myself, but my own heart has been changed
I can't go on like this
I loathe all I've become


RAY: (Stops cutting, bleeding) FRASER!! Are you really here?

FRASER: No ray I am a ghost, but I don't want you to die. Don't do that. Suicide is never the right answer.

(MR. Rabinowitx said to put that in somewhere, so its here LOL)

Ray: Its not fair, Fraser! I love you, and I want to be with you, no matter what the world and people say, but your not alive, and it's sooo sad!


FRASER: Cry, Ray, cry and wish for me to be with you. And with the poeer of music, maybe we will be togther. Just promise me you won't kill yourself?

RAY: (Cries more) Oh yes yes Frase I promise! I wont kill myself!

(THE MUSIC gets really really loud)

Is this real enough for you
You were so confused
Now that you've decided to stay
We'll remain together

You can't abandon me
You belong to me

Breathe in and take my life in you
No longer myself only you
There's no escaping me, my love

Darling, there's no sense in running
You know I will find you
Everything is perfect now
We can live forever

You can't abandon me
You belong to me

Breathe in and take my life in you
No longer myself only you
There's no escaping me, my love

RAY: I surrender, Fraser I surrender!

FRASER: (Says the words while the song plays
Goodnight, sleep tight
No more tears
In the morning I'll be here
And when we say goodnight,
Dry your eyes
Because we said goodnight,
And not goodbye
We said goodnight
And not goodbye

(NOTE: Ray falls asleep and then something happens, okay, I don't know what but its magic and when he gets up Fraser is there with him in bed (if its a tv movie they wont be naked b/c you cant show that)

Ray: OMG! FRASier! You are alive!!

FRASER: Yes, Ray, the power of our love and the music of EVANESSCCENSSCE has brought me back to life!

(THEY KISS) and music comes up as they kiss and it fades out and you see the ocean.

EVENENCE"Before The Dawn"

Meet me after dark again and I'll hold you
I am nothing more than to see you there
And maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

If only night can hold you where i can see you, my love
Then let me never ever wake again
And maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

somehow i know that we cant wake again from this dream
it's not real, but it's ours
Maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn



OK, that’s it! Pls send feedback. I hope you want to do this, b/c it would be INCREDIBLE!

Write back, please. :)

RE: Script idea

Dear Bob-

Taking a minute out from frantic writing to run this idea by you. I think it could be a terrific project for us, and you know how long I've been trying to hook us up with a film.

Please read my attached film treatment. I think it would make a great story. Think of it as Brokeback Mountain crossed with Ghost. And it’s a musical, too! I've even got a few new lyrics that would work for the opening…
