Hi all. You may notice that this isn’t an episode of Alenkas; I’m taking a break this week to make sure that ‘Season 2’ is as good as possible. It consists of two arcs, much like Season 1 did. ‘Influx’ and ‘Criminal Intent’. But I’ve been getting some questions as to what my outline and notes looked like while writing the first one. So I posted it’s entirety, as it is from where I used it, right here. Let’s look it over.
Season 1 Outline:
30 people get put into the VR simulation of Alenkas, to last 3 months (3 years Alenkas time)
Artificially induced Lust at seemingly random times. Lyla, Alex, Sam, and Simon understand what’s going on.
Simon thinks that maybe the debug console might help, but has no idea where it is.
Lyla figures out the timing. (Every six hours, approximately)
Lyla finds Simon, tells him of her findings. Simon figures out real life timing, realizes possible to use debug console to undo it.
Simon and Lyla start to recruit people to search Alenkas for the debug console.
They search the entire city, with only one place being left out; a seemingly brand new warehouse.
Recruit various people to use their skills to get in; from Emma’s Parkour to Simon’s mind.
Simon breaks in to the debug console, realizes that it’s impossible to shut the program down…but not to overload it.
Turns on the production servers, and opens Alenkas 2 months early.
Total Alenkas Time: 1 year. Total Real Time: 1 month.
Main characters: Simon, Lyla.

The first thing you’ll notice is that the episodes aren’t marked into the two arcs, New Beginnings and The Great Hunt. I didn’t start doing that until I wrote S2, which means this is separated into where they fall in the timeline rather than any particular arc. I tried to convey that via tone, but I know it wasn’t always good, so it was almost impossible to tell. And in the actual series, I made some adjustments on the fly; the actual time was only 2/3’rds of the original allotted time.
There’s a lot of things I changed, but I didn’t change on the outline. I didn’t, and still don’t, take notes all that well. Never have, and probably never will. It’s also easy to notice that there’s a ‘Finale’ with Simon and Sam that I haven’t posted yet. It will be, but as a special, because it doesn’t actually do anything for the plot; by episode 52 (GH26) the plot is done. It’s just more ‘what happens now’ kind of thing. Perfect for a special, but not good for a finale.
I hope you all enjoyed the look behind the scenes at my less than bare-bones outline, and wonder how the hell I managed to create what I did from…that. Trust me, I do too. Either way, I will see you all next week with the next episode of Alenkas, with ‘Influx’, episode 1!
