  1. "boyfriend" just makes me ccringe, when applied to anyone over thirty, but since it wasn't Tracy saying it... Counterfeit tulips?! LOL Glad they mentioned Luke by name, rather than just pretending he doesn't exist. And so far, no comments from Tracy about a break up, so that's something--not that it much matters, at this point, I guess.
  2. Hi, everyone. MSQ, I guess we had the same idea. I dropped in to share clips. Here are the Q clips, so far; merry Christmas, to us! It surely did feel like a gift, to have these to watch. I'm glad someone's taken the time to put these up, and hope they continue. I'm not very motivated to watch the show in its entirety, and I don't have a clue what the current storylines are about. I did sit through it Friday, though, but it's not really convenient timing, and I don't have Hulu either. i'm feeling kind of grumpy about having to endure the presence of Sonny, again. LOL 12-26-19
  3. For anyone who enjoys such things, I did FINALLY complete my lengthy FlukeTracy fanfic last summer! I don't think I posted the link, so it's here: A Stranger in My house https://archiveofourown.org/works/3284759?view_full_work=tr, Because it was still going on when I was writing, the ending takes a turn from the show's conclusion to that story. i know this SL isn't a favorite of most, but it was my intro to Tracy and Luke, so I have a soft spot for it. And its prequel, of sorts: https://archiveofourown.org/works/5799064 Also this little thing--by way of processing the f
  4. I just read the news!! I see I should have visited this board first. I check in on GH every Thanksgiving and Christmas (without actually watching), just to be sure I'm not missing this very event, but never really expected this. Can't wait to see JE again! I hope it's more than just a single appearance, but I'll be delighted with just about anything...unless perhaps we hear unhappy news about Luke, if he's mentioned. Well, I'll live with that too, I'm just thrilled to be able to see more of Tracy, and I hope there are some good scenes involving Ned.
  5. 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. *si
  6. 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..
  7. 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...
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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. ;
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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, alt
  14. 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
  15. 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 Febru
  16. 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 spoil
  17. 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 wa
  18. 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. Mo
  19. 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.
  20. I don't think so, unfortunately...but I'll check. I know Hulu has others--Coronation Street, for one, but I don't watch it. Re fan fiction - I need a bit of info, please, if anyone's so inclined. I wanted to toss in a detail or two in one of my next chapters about ELQ. Do we see much of it? What does the place look like? And as long as I'm asking, what about the Q mansion? What rooms are typically shown (I'm sure it's just one or two), and what do they look like? Tracy's room?? This isn't crucial, of course, but I'd like to be able to imagine the settings, a bit. Any little detail would help
  21. This year needs to be Sonny's last ever birthday. *grump* I hate Sonny, and all the worship of him by other characters. OT - Emmerdale is a traditional daily type soap, on Mon-Fri (two eps on Thursday, which is odd, but nice). Without commercials, as it is on dailymotion.com (similar to Youtube), it's 22 minutes long, so not a huge time commitment. It's pace is a bit quicker than what we're used to with GH, SLs wrap up in a more reasonable time frame. If you do want to find it, put in a search like this: "Emmerdale 10th May 2016" to find each day's show. I'd be happy to answer questions abou
  22. I usually check the spoilers posted on the GH Critical List site, and its very last item for this week says "Hayden must ask Tracy for help." So maybe that's Friday.. It is a bummer, no Jane, last week or this, so far. I wish I could just give up GH altogether, but I really love seeing her too much to do that. Sad that it's sweeps, and I don't even care to watch. Yeah, where IS Ned? And Dillon? I would watch to see them, too, but nothing else is compelling. Well, Franco and Nina, a little, but it's not enough to make me tune in, if Tracy or even other Q's aren't also on. Yeah, I might wa
  23. I like it too, and it's about time Monica had that part of her job back. I hope it means she'll be around more. I'd have appreciated a mention of Tracy's birthday. It just occurred to me that it's been two years since anyone remembered it, and with Ned and Dillon both here this year, it might have been a nice touch to have someone remember it.
  24. More later--I haven't seen today's ep--but ILTQ, no, you don't need to beta your story. Just post, whenever you like and with story in whatever shape it's in. You won't need to have someone else post...unless you just want to. I'd be glad to help with that, if you do still want someone to look it over, though. I tried to find someone to do this for me a few months back, wrote to about three people who say they beta read, and no one responded! No one's checking this stuff, and no one's updating lists of beta readers on ff.net.
  25. Yeah, why didn't Jason hand control of ELQ back to Tracy? There's no Fluke, and no current threat and no reason why she shouldn't be in charge. I'm offended! Although I suppose since he remembers nothing prior to this year concerning the Q's, he only knows about ELQ with Michael at the helm. Still, it would have been nice to have had some conversation about it, before just making a final decision like that. Ned's in town, after all, so Jason might have included him in this hand-over. And I love Tracy's spirited ways and her very direct manner, but I'm a bit sick of her constantly being port
