Mary Whatserface Winstead, the girl who played Lucy was born in 1984. This makes her 23(ish) at the time of the movie and 24(ish) now. If she's still in school, that means she's going for some kind of post-grad.

The first movie took place in 1988. That would make Lucy around 3 or 4 at the time, which fits with the appearance of the actress that played her in the original. And, IIRC, Lucy is the older child. I need to check the parts at Holly's LA house. So. Since John is a good Irish boy, let's presume that he wouldn't let Lucy be born out of wedlock. That means Holly and John were married at least 5(ish) years before DH1.

By DH3, they're "separated" again. That's 1998, seven years later. So they were married, in toto, somewhere around 12-13 years. Ish. And if they divorced in '98 (because I really don't see Holly waiting a long time at that point). That means they've been divorced about 12 years at the point of Save As.

Need to confirm one way or the other if John (Bruce) is actually left handed. I think he is. WHY DO THEY NOT HAVE IMPORTANT SHIT LIKE THIS ON IMDB? DON'T THEY KNOW I'M TRYING TO WRITE??

The thing about John, the thing that makes him really good at being 'the action hero' is that he is UNABLE to quit. He has a pathological inability to just walk away, even when he can or it might be in his best interests to do so. This is the one thing he also has going for him in relationships. He freaks out, he argues, he jumps to conclusions, but he doesn't QUIT.

What sort of voice are you planning for Lucy?

Mainly, she's being a lot like her father and sticking her nose into the whole thing (not that she knows what "the whole thing" IS) by warning Matt, threatening her father and dragging her mother in as the big guns. So she's being interfering and kind of annoyed (because she thinks John will end up letting Matt down) but she's not really ANGRY or mean about it all. But it's a fine line, you know?

Want a preview? I'll email what I've got if you tell me if it's working or not.

Bruce Willis is definitely left handed. He fires a gun left handed in the Die Hard movies, and writes left handed in The Sixth Sense. As a fellow leftie, I tend to notice this about people, but I swear I read this somewhere as well (I thought it was IMDB, weird).

Also, let me just say I am ridiculously excited for this fic. If you need another beta when the time comes (or even just a cheerleader), just let me know, I'd love to help you out.
