  1. HookedonhGH, you put that so nicely. it's true for me as well--although not for as many years--I found GH and Luke and Tracy when I really needed someone to love and a harmless distraction, and a new fandom to immerse in was just the thing. But I'm stronger now, and not happy about saying goodbye to JE on my screen, but I can. I did cry a little, today, before I watched the ep. I do wish TG had spoken at lease one line, however. To hear him call her Spanky one last time would have completed it, for me, and I'd forgive all the missteps in this exit storyline, for that one small thing. *sigh* I'd have chosen different clips, perhaps, more focused on Luke, since that's what the end was leading to. (Possibly some from 2010 when they were being held in Helena's dungeon...I'm sure I can think of a list, but no time now.) I still intend to finish posting my fan fiction. I'll check in, occasionally (I have meant to read through this entire thread, someday--it's great accompaniment to watching clips and reading fanfic--although it might just depress me to see how busy it used to be) but after three years, I can't watch GH anymore.
  2. Hmm, Tracy, if you spend so much time talking to your dead kin, they will want you to join them! MsQ, re your post above, she did seem to make a surprising, quick recovery! LOL I didn't know about there not being any blood or apparent injury, so thanks for your comments. You'd think someone, aside from fans, would notice such details. It was slanted toward the negative, a bit too much for my liking, though I'm glad they devoted the time to her, and from the little I've read elsewhere, seems most people thought it was well done and quite a treat. So I don't want to complain too much... But I'd have liked them to balance the ep with a few lighthearted, fun scenes (Ned and tracy plotting together, over the years--seems like I saw something like that from the early 90s on Youtube) or heartfelt scenes with Tracy and sons, or Lulu, as well as Lila and Edward...because contrary to recent writing, Edward DID say he loved her, a time or two--in his last scene, I think. Also, why not reveal that Edward was faking the infamous heart attack? Why show only that Tracy was wrong, in that situation? No, it wouldn't justify her actions, but it would give a more balanced view. And we didn't need to cut away to scenes with the bunch talking with and about Samira, IMO. That was my biggest source of annoyance. Why the hell won't this woman just go away? I don't care about this stranger, and even if Q's don't get it, I see why Tracy wouldn't care about this woman's problem. The whole thing saddens me--that some of JE's remaining air time is spent on this boring storyline. I'd love to see Alan's ghost, one last time. I'll be overjoyed to see Luke, if he appears. I want that happy ending so, so much! TracyLuv, I think the ep you mean is Apr 24, 2006. So four more days of following GH, for me (only good thing is no more Sonny! Ever! Woohoo!) . I just can't muster any interest for anything I see happening. Thank goodness for the superior British soaps, to fill that space. OT - Thank you, MsQ and HookedonGH. My little ones are doing really well, and I'm finally getting a bit more sleep, so I can enjoy them more; they have such different personalities. Each of us takes 2-3 feedings in a row, so the other can rest,--I was too exhausted to think up this obvious solution sooner! LOL Working on getting them to sleep through the night, next. I think my boy will have no problem; he's the more easy-going and peaceful, of the two. They sleep in the same crib, so this may be a challenge!
  3. Really?! Really and truly?! Luke? HookedohGH, thanks. I'm so happy!--not happy that Jane is going, though, but if Tracy must leave, I want to think she's going off to be with Luke. But why this fake Ashton? LOL And Laura just so happens to speak the language? After living there for just a year (o riiiight!) and that, 30-odd years ago? Okay then...
  4. On the Feb 17 show, I hoped for an old-fashioned Q fight over whether to buy the hospital--seemed the perfect opportunity for that. Bah.
  5. I've been meaning to pop in and post, for weeks now! I hope everyone's well... I know we don't have a lot to discuss, sadly, not with just one ep with Tracy, this whole year, I think. Shameful! But... happy birthday, to Jane! It was the 17th, right? I haven't had much down time to watch GH, or anything else, though. My little twins were born on the 17th! (My husband wouldn't let me name the girl Tracy. LOL) So we have Sharon Ruth, and Lucas Graham. (No, I wouldn't have named the boy Lucas, if I picked Tracy as the girl's name! That would be a little too odd, even for me.) They were both just over 5 lbs, and are tiny, precious, but doing really well. I'm exhausted, and very ready for my mother to go home. but otherwise happy, and so grateful the babies are healthy. I haven't yet watched the one ep, but will post when I do, or when she gets mor air time. I hope that also means less SL centered on Hayden/Finn, and more on Tracy, herself, or Ned and Dillon.
  6. ILTQ, she was indeed on, all five days last week! There were nice scenes with Monica. According to the preview, Tracy will be on tomorrow. ;
  7. Ooh, unseen Tracy footage! Thanks for sharing the link, DRW! I saw her first scene, but will have to continue it another time. Odd to have Lucy among the Q's. "Mother Quartermaine." LOL I like the lengthier scenes of this era, and the comedy that's more obvious than it is, now.
  8. MSQ, I wish you very good luck with the hard work of grad school! I'd like to hear more about that, if you feel like sharing anything. HookedonGh, thank you. We found out last week--the babies are a boy and a girl! I very much wanted a girl--I've only ever imagined myself having a daughter...probably just because I only have a sister, and only girl cousins, and I know next to nothing about little boys. But he will be mine, and I'll learn. And of course I'd have welcomed whoever I got. I swear the ultrasound tech drew out the suspense of revealing the gender of the second baby, though. LOL She told me about the boy first, and I was mentally preparing myself to hear that the second baby was also a boy. So the dr says they usually want to deliver twins at 37 weeks, I'll have to have a C section. That'll be the end of January, then. My sister and mother are planning to visit, separately, for a couple of weeks to help out, for which I am exceedingly grateful... although my mom's not in the best health herself, and I worry she'll overdo it. Now to GH... Tracy's been very involved lately in helping various other people hasn't she? Alexis, Sabrina, Dillon. It feels like filler material, to me, not helped by the fact that in each of these cases, the dialogue is all about the current situations of the other characters, and not much about what's on Tracy's mind, or about anything she's gone through, these past months, so very little to advance her story. I'm always happy to see her, but now they've put this idea of revisiting Luke in the picture, I am eager for them to show us that, whatever form it takes, whether we see Luke one last time, or we just see Tracy on the phone with him, or some such. I almost don't mind either way, I just want it to happen! This devastating news she'll get is worrying, though. Could it be something to do with Ned? I can't wait to see him! Scenes with Ned are never filler.
  9. What a contrast, between Tuesday's and Wednesday's shows! If we had more like Wednesday's, I'd watch more often. (Or maybe it's just that Sonny, Jason and Sam weren't on, and that improves any episode. LOL) If JE is leaving, it does seem that they're setting the stage for that possibility, or that was my thought after the Tracy/paul scenes, tuesday. I'd have liked Tracy's voicemail to Luke to reveal that she actually does know his whereabouts, but otherwise, I'm happy with what we got, yesterday. I might have liked Tracy to talk a bit about her relationship with Luke, in the way Laura did, although I also think that would be out of character for her to reveal that much of herself...but I would have liked to see it, anyway. Oh, and I was shocked that Laura apologized for barging in and ruining last year's engagement party! After reading that T and L were to have scenes together, I was thinking that it would be nice to have her say something like that, but rarely do things play out on screen as I imagine them.
  10. I meant to say--and I hope i'm not the only one!--that if I quit watching GH, I will still be interested in fan fic, writing and reading it. I have years of Tracy DVDs to rewatch, and get the ones I haven't yet seen, so plenty of story ideas may come from that...I hope. bb
  11. If JE's going, I'm also glad it's her own choice, not someone else's. I'll miss seeing Tracy, so much, though. I started watching as a distraction in a really bad time for me, and as part of what helpfed me get through that, she's very dear, and...there's just no one like her. Oh, I like Grace and Frankie, too, btw! It would be fantastic to see JE in something like that--any sort of show that would place her in a central role would be a dream! But at the moment, personally, I guess the timing is fine. I'm not as bothered as I would have been a few months ago. I'm expecting twins in early February (after several miscarriages, so a bit of a miracle, really. I'll be 44 by the time they are born!) I'm preoccupied/anxious,/happy, and I know I'll be tired and busy soon enough--these are first babies--so dropping GH, when I rarely enjoy it, these days, will not be such a hardship. I still have my British soap. And on current GH goings on, I'm rather hurt and highly offended that they'd bring up Luke's name, like this. If he's not putting in an appearance, just let it rest! I still miss him. And it was about time we saw some Tracy/Lulu interaction. More of that would be welcome. And Ned....where is he?!
  12. There's so woefully little to comment on, but I'm glad all of you are still here. And ILTQ, I SO hope you're optimism pays off. I'd love to see Tracy have a bit of a romance, too. They're stingy with her air time, though, so I'm not hopeful. It's such a struggle to watch the show at all, these last few months. I always enjoy Tracy, but even her scenes aren't very interesting, though I'll keep tuning in as long as she's on, anyway, and I can't tolerate any of the rest of the SLs. I keep hoping this will change, I want to eagerly look forward to GH every day, again. Are there any promising spoilers circulating?
  13. I only have a minute, so may post again later, once I've given the whole thing more thought, but re what I said above about Rachel being Tracy's daughter... though that sort of SL would be entertaining in the short term, and I'd love Tracy to be the center of something big and dramatic, I don't think I really like the idea of it. Soaps thrive on such storylines, but Tracy's history isn't full of that sort of chaos and she isn't typical, in that way, and I'd hate them to destroy that, now, and give her a secret, given-away baby, at this stage. I like that both her children were born when she was married (if not happily so.) Now, on the other hand, a previously unrevealed tryst with Luke, from some point in the distant past, that wouldn't disturb me at all. That's the bit that would make me happy. If GH can revise other pieces of his history, why not that? Without a resulting pregnancy for Tracy, that's a fanfic story I mean to write, sometime.
  14. Ooh, yes please, long lost child SL! Implausible, but who cares? LOL And as long as I'm delving into the realm of what's probably not likely from these writers, let it be Rachel, and she's Luke's child. That would make me happy forever. On the more realistic side, just an appearance by him would be a joyous occasion, as long as most of his scenes are with Tracy. I say Laura's far too busy to give him the time of day...or so I hope. Yeah, I LOVED Thursday, with Ned and Dillon! More of that would be marvelous. I watched Friday's show--I was ironing and needed something to help pass the time. More bickering over little Avery. When will it end? Clearly, Sonny and Ava are both unworthy and unfit, and Avery needs to be taken immediately into foster care...TracyCare. T can have a house full of impressionable kids to look after and advise. re descriptions, thank you, MSQ. No rush; and I truly appreciate it!!
  15. Aww. Another little one for Tracy to get attached to...for about half a minute (if the Avery situation is anything to judge by.) Edward? She already named a child for him. That would be Ned, unless I'm mistaken. But perhaps Sabrina will see fit to call her son that, when she appears.
