Fanvid - Alternate (re-edited) Episode: Special (happier) Edition of S6
SPOILERS ahead for 6.02

So, I’ve dealt with my grief over Grace’s death by making a “Grace Lives” edition of S6, and that shall henceforth be my AU headcanon ending for Skins gen 3. (I’ll still watch the real S6 eps at least once to check out what happens, but the “Grace Lives” edition will be the only S6 I rewatch aside from the mini episodes). It's basically just most of 6.01 (minus some Franky/Luke stuff and minus everything after Alo goes down on Mini outside the toilets) with a new ending tacked on using a bit of footage from 6.02 and a couple short scene-establishing clips. The story (aka the explanation for what’s going on, lol) goes as follows: The gang fly home (1000 pts. if you can name the movie I took the airplane clip from) and Rich goes over to Grace’s house (because Alo wants to throw a party there while Grace’s parents are out of town). (And Rich heads over wearing a wig so it looks like his hair grew back overnight, to give Grace a laugh, but she’s in the shower or something so he just takes it off and changes into his party clothes – ngl, I couldn’t find a better establishing shot). Then, Rich finds Grace in her room, in bed and ready for some lovin’ (this is an AU version of the Hardlet love scene from 6.02 set to "Wasted Daylight" – I am so ticked they didn’t give us that love scene when Grace was alive in canon – but it’s with living Grace in my altered episode). (While Grace and Rich are having it off, Alo comes over and finishes getting the house ready for the party and the guests arrive.) And then, after the lovin’, (Grace wants to nap longer than Rich, so) Rich goes down to the party to do his gig with Alo and their band (I tacked on Alo and Rich's "We Are One" song) and Grace comes down to the party and Rich smiles at her, THE END. SHOW OVER, EVERYONE LIVES.

The “Grace Lives” edition is 33 min. long and is a 460.51 MB wmv file. You can download it here: http://depositfiles.com/files/x56asg0yf

Perhaps this will make it easier to re-watch the sweet Hardlet scenes in 6.01 and some from 6.02, for all you Grace and Hardlet fans (and Rich fans, too).

Hey you! I know it's been a while. How have you been?

I haven't been able watch Season 6 yet, but holy crap! I only just found out about Grace dying after lurking on tumblr last night and running into one of randomneses' post. What in the world WHY???!! I was looking forward to seeing more Grace and Rich this season! -_-

Oh, dear, I'm just now seeing this 3 months later -_-; Please excuse the really, really late reply. Anyway...

Probably you've seen me talk about how I've been on tumblr, but if not, check out my "real life" tag on tumblr here: http://sailorlum.tumblr.com/tagged/real-life ;)

Re Skins S6 and Grace dying: IKR?! *cries* T_T I was looking forward to more Grace and Rich too! :(

Even though I'm glad the Malo ship sailed (although it could have been better done) since Minky didn't sail, I'm not a big fan of S6 (esp. due to what happened with Franky's character along with the whole Grace dying thing) and probably won't rewatch it much (not even my Grace lives edition). I'll probably just rewatch S5 and call it the end at the end of S5 for my headcanon for gen 3, and treat my S6 and the real S6 as AU's.

Hey! I'm sorry it's taken me a while to reply. Been mostly lurking on both here and tumblr. Hope you're doing okay.

Yea, I only saw maybe the first 5 episodes of Season 6, and after that I lost interest. I feel like Grace's death was a major cop out. I'm dissapointed that Grace and Rich didn't get to grow as a couple, that we didn't get see Grace evolve, and I'm even more disappointed in that I feel like her death made a really crappy story line for the whole season. I don't blame any of the characters for acting the way they did because of it. But why drive the story in this way? I don't know, I feel like so many other things could have been explored with these characters that would still make them evolve without someone dying and everyone losing themselves over it.

No problem, I just now saw this reply (I've been awful about checking my LJ inbox). ;) I'm doing well. Hope you are doing well. :)

I feel the same about Grace's death and all the disappointment that followed. *sigh*
