Schrodinger's Heroes

I've been working on a project that you haven't seen until now.  Partway through "Three Weeks for Dreamwidth," my friend Melannen posted "101 Asexy Sex Scenes" which I mentioned here ... and that inspired me to work up a description and some materials for the apocryphal television show Schrodinger's Heroes

It started as a small whimsy.  Then I realized that 1) I was describing the kind of television show I'd actually like to watch, full of sexual/racial diversity and thought-provoking concepts, and 2) I was getting ideas for scripts.  Now scriptwriting is the one form of writing that has never appealed to me much.  In recent memory I've written one script on purpose and that was an editorial cartoon script for wbm.  For Schrodinger's Heroes  I wrote four short scripts for advance ads, two descriptions of fanart with dialog, and one five-scene podcast fanfic about a hacker trying to break into Ash's security system.  Also they're leaning towards a mix of humor and drama; humor isn't one of my biggest genres.  So the whimsy turned into legitimate practice.  I don't particularly have plans to write scripts, but I figure it never hurts to have at least basic skills just in case.

You can now see the menu post here, with links to all the background and content posts.  Sideline discussions and other stuff may also appear in the series tag Schrodinger's Heroes.  If other folks explore this television show, I'll try to link to their material also.

Feedback and discussion are encouraged.  This is the kind of television show I'd like  to watch if it existed, and the kind of fandom that would attract me.
