This is a plan. Whether it's a good plan is up to you. If I could get some input here in the next day or so, that'd be good.
Proposed Bible Format
1x00 Episode Title
|Boring Production Crap|
|List airdate, writer, director, guest stars, etc. A good place to get this info is The Supernatural episode guide at TV.com|
|What Time Is It?|
|If we can pinpoint an actual date or time for the episode (such as Halloween, 2005, in the case of the pilot), please do so here. Or make a bit of speculation if it looks like this episode flows right from the previous, or there's a lot of time in between...|
|Now, Which One Was That?|
|Simple synopsis. Tells all the main high points, but doesn't concern itself with all the niggling little details. Also, if you have a favorite screencap from the episode, it can go here. If you need a place to post it, there are a few of us who can spend the diskspace and bandwidth.|
|All the Niggling Little Details|
|Just what it says. Included should be any details that look significant (for current episodes) or turned out to be significant (for older episodes). This can always be edited later if we find out things are more important than we thought they were.|
|Where'd That Myth Come From?|
|Here's the place to post any information you might want to dig up about the myth/monster/whatever that they're fighting this week. Or supernatural info on the city they visit, if it seems like it might have something to do with the "big story." Also, interesting things like "They're in Richardson, TX. Did you know Jensen is from there?"|
|What's in a Name?|
|A place for all the pseudonyms the boys use in the episode.|
|What Did You Just Say?|
|Quotes you like.|
|Counting the Cost|
|All the different important costs of the episode, including Pain Quotient (count the owies for the boys [and papa, if he bothers to show up]), Collateral Damage (dead innocents), The Bad, the Ugly, and the Dead (Dead bad guys), Metallicar Watch (any damage to the lovely Impala), Zippo Count (used in the not-so-rare event that Dean sacrifices yet another beautiful Zippo lighter to the cause), Sacrificed on the Altar of Whoops! (Gaffs and Goofs). You can make up new counts if you run across something you've noticed in previous episodes. If you're doing a retro episode (one that aired a while ago), make sure the counts don't include episodes that followed this one in airdate.|
|Driver Picks the Music|
|List of music that appears in the episode. This can be found on the WB site (This is the link), but keep in mind, they're not always thorough.|
|What Did They Just Say?|
|Here's where linking is a good, good thing. Each bible entry will eventually be linked to all the "official" Heavy Metas for that episode, but feel free to publish links to any other episode-related metas here.|
Each bible entry keeper is responsible for editing her individual bible entry if someone else brings up a mistake or an addition. Also, once we're finished with season one's bible entries, they'll be archived on my website (or someone else's if someone is so inclined), and we can archive season two's as they happen.
I know this seems strict, but it's only a preliminary idea. There's lots of room for additions and changes. I just want people to be able to come here and have a nice, consistent bible, you know?
Anyway, please comment here with any and all suggestions you have for making this a better bible.
Edited to Add: Made some changes based on suggestions. What think you?
