Amanda blogentry-14971-0-80862800-1362543438_thwalks into Iris’sblogentry-14971-0-56910800-1362543451_th office with her tablet…

Amanda: I’m getting the final numbers together.

Iris: I’m glad you’re here. How was your evening?

Amanda: As if you’re really concerned.

Iris: Amanda, we’re working together, so can we at least be cordial. We don’t have to be mean to each other.

Amanda: Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful to be back here at daddy’s company, but working with you is not going to be easy.

Iris: I’m not stupid. I know you don’t trust me after what happened at the hearing, but somewhere deep down, you want what’s best for Cory Publishing, and so do I. That’s why I need to talk to you.

Amanda: About what?

Iris: I’ve been thinking about some changes here at Cory Publishing. In fact, I don’t want it to be called Cory Publishing anymore.



Rachel blogentry-14971-0-87801700-1362543470_this sipping her coffee and looking at her tablet, and Paulinablogentry-14971-0-69983600-1362543494_th walks up to her.

Rachel (getting up): Paulina honey. It’s great to see you.

Paulina (sitting down): It’s been a while for us.

Rachel: Yes it has, and it is long overdue. So glad you called me.

Paulina: I know you’ve been a little preoccupied after what happened with Cory Publishing.

Rachel: That was difficult, but no matter what is going on in my life, I always have time for you. So what’s goin’ on? Tell me.

Paulina: I called you because we need to put our heads together.

Rachel: And do what?

Paulina: And find a way to get Iris out of Cory Publishing.



Staceyblogentry-14971-0-61985200-1362543515_th opens the door, and Vickyblogentry-14971-0-62152600-1362543529_th walks in.

Vicky: We have to talk about Lindsay.

Stacey (shutting the door): I’m not discussing my daughter with you.

Vicky: I’m sorry but this has to be discussed. Did you know that Jake hurt his knee and Lindsay is his physical therapist?

Stacey: I’m aware of that.

Vicky: Well that can’t happen. You’ve got to convince Lindsay to give Jake’s care to another therapist.

Stacey: I don’t appreciate you coming to my apartment telling me how to handle my daughter.

Vicky: Do you want the truth to come out? Do you want see how much this might hurt Lindsay?

Stacey: Of course not.

Vicky: Then do something!





Amanda: What do you mean?

Iris: It’s time to move the company into a new era. The company can’t do what it did in the past and expect to be successful.

Amanda: That’s obvious.

Iris: Times have changed and the company has to change with it. That being said, I would like to take the company into new ventures, like television shows.

Amanda: That’s very risky. Networks are not as patient as they used to be with shows. If they cancel the shows after a couple of airings, then we lose money. I’m not sure if we should be taking chances like that.

Iris: Why not? Didn’t daddy have to take chances in order for his company to grow? I want this company to do more than just print. I want people to watch our programs on their tablets and laptops anytime. There is money to be made in those markets. That’s why I want to change our name.

Amanda: Change our name? You mean the company’s name.

Iris: That’s right. I want Cory Publishing to now be called Cory Productions. Are you with me?

Amanda: Hmmm…I think you’re right. I’ll go with it. Cory Productions it is.


Rachel: Paulina I…

Paulina: Iris doesn’t deserve to be in control of Cory.

Rachel: That company belongs to all of you. That’s what Mac wanted.

Paulina: It’s yours, too Rachel. Dad loved you.

Rachel: Yes and I loved him, too, but I probably can’t help you.

Paulina: Why not?

Rachel: It’s Carl. He’s afraid that if I fight for Cory Publishing, that it will consume me and I’ll put it before our marriage.

Paulina: Oh come Rachel I don’t think he truly believes that, not after all you two have been through to be together.

Rachel: For some reason, Carl thinks he’s in competition with Mac. He couldn’t be further from the truth.

Paulina: Of course he is. He’s your husband, and he loves you. He has to understand that you will always be part of Cory Publishing.

Rachel: A part of me will always love Mac, but I love Carl with all my heart. That being said, I have an idea of how we can start the process of taking Iris down.


Vicky: Look I didn’t come to fight about this. We both have our reasons for not wanting Jake to know that he’s Lindsay’s father.

Stacey: We both agree that Jake can’t know the truth. Lindsay could be devastated if Jake can’t a feel a bond with her because he doesn’t remember anything about how we…

Vicky: And who knows what’s going to happen if Jake has all those memories rushing back to him?

Stacey: We’re trying to protect the people we love.

Vicky: That’s why you’ve got to get Lindsay away from Jake.

Stacey: You worry about Jake, and I’ll handle Lindsay.

Vicky leaves and Stacey makes a phone call…

Stacey: It’s your mother. Can you come to my apartment? It’s very important.

I'm honored to be listed as history consultant, although you certainly wrote all this good stuff on your own (if you ever have any more questions I'd be happy to answer them).

I'd always wondered why they kept the name "Cory Publishing" for so long. This makes sense.

Wasn't expecting to see Rachel go to Paulina. This will be good.

Im surprised that Amanda made her decsion with out so much as consulting Rachel. I think its CP steps into a new direction. Ive always said that and Iris did make a great point in that regard.

How long does Vicky and Stacy intened to keep this secret?

Rachel doesn't own the company anymore, so Amanda didn't consult Rachel...that could be a twist. And Vicky and Stacey are gonna try their best to keep this under wraps...lol..

@Carl and MLC you both have been very instrumental in helping me construct this AW fanfic. It has been fun to write so far...it's only fair you both get credit...

Now I need an Executive Producer of one of the current soaps to see what I can do for them :) LOL
