I’m No ‘Stan,’ I Swear: Alexa Chung, Eve Peyser & The Nature Of Celebrity Crushes

I have to be really careful about this, but I guess I just have some stuff I want to get off my chest and so I can’t help myself. If I get the sense anyone is getting the wrong idea from these videos, I will delete them. That would be ironic, of course, since all I do is talk about how much I am nervous that _any_ talking about a celebrity online will be taken the wrong way. But in this specific instance, I couldn’t help myself.

Mulling A Screenplay Subplot Involving A Character Inspired By Alexa Chung

In my effort to flesh out this screenplay concept I dwelling on, I am struggling to think up different ways to make the story longer. One of the ways I think I could maybe make the story longer and interesting to boot would be something like this: people from our Hero’s background pop up and cause trouble. Mid-way through the story, someone like Alexa Chung pops up after she learns our Hero had, at one point, a huge celebrity crush on her.

Hilarity ensues.

At least, that’s the general concept. It’s interesting how quickly this story is flowing after ages and ages of it not flowing at all. But I need conflict, so this I keep thinking up the weirdest reasons why there might possibly be conflict given the construct of the scenario.

The scenario I’ve come up with is a doozy. Anyway. Whatever. It doesn’t matter unless I put the work in.
