Okay, I began working on this article. I figure it would make a nice feature come June 16th. Obviously it needs a lot of work stylistically and whatnot, but I'd LOVE for people to give their opinions and input content-wise. It probably needs a lot more stuff, but yeah, this was the starting point. Opinions, please!!! --Zoey 12:37, 27 May 2007 (CDT)

I made a couple of changes to help you start things off. Also, I think the pics should all be the same ratio, or at least the same for each pair. Do you prefer 4:3 or widescreen? Psmith 18:34, 27 May 2007 (CDT)
Oh, it's already looking much better. I agree, the ratio should be the same. Although I have no personal preference about which one to use. Thanks a ton for any/all help!! --Zoey 18:38, 27 May 2007 (CDT)
I have replaced some pics with 4:3 ones. I'm afraid that's all I have time for tonight. Hopefully, others on LGPedia will chip in too. I'll cast my eye over it again soon to see how things develop. Oh... and this page was a good idea, by the way! Psmith 19:37, 27 May 2007 (CDT)
Okay, I attempted to go through and get the rest of the images to the correct ratio. Although I think it's safe to say that I fail.. so uh, if anyone wants to go in and stick up prettier images I won't be offended ;P I'm so glad you like it!! I was hoping people would... it seems... right to do something special for a whole year! Hopefully other people will give imput too. What other changes would people make to this page/what would you add? I'd love to know!!! --Zoey 22:32, 27 May 2007 (CDT)
Hey... isn't Gemma... dead? --Chartreuse 20:29, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

How about Stuffed animals? Important for Bree and... now - forgotten? psichopate 20:34, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

Feel free to add them! It doesn't even just have to be characters. Plot, setting, etc! Anything you can think of a then/now for. This was just a starting point!! --Zoey 20:36, 29 May 2007 (CDT)
I decided to add Tachyon to the page, though I'm not the biggest fan of the pics (why couldn't she give us a decent photo of herself just once??) --Pheon 13:29, 30 May 2007 (CDT)
I was thinking, should this page JUST be "In-Universe then & now" stuff, or could we also mention the whole discovery/outing moment of LG15. The reason I would think not is that it may be too similar to Down The Rabbit Hole: The Hunt For Bree.--Pheon 03:20, 1 June 2007 (CDT)
Hm, yeah I think we should stick to in-story stuff for now. The page is looking great though! I hope people continue to contribute!! --Zoey 17:42, 1 June 2007 (CDT)


Just so it's official, I wanted to put the feature nom. on this page. I'm planning on featuring it on June 16th to mark the first Bree blog, assuming there are no serious objections. I think it's looking great! I'm really pleased :) --Zoey 19:02, 2 June 2007 (CDT)

I really like the concept of this Zoey, but I feel its still a little barren. Its concentrating on how the characters have evolved in a year, but that's about it. Perhaps . . . argh, can't really figure out what I'm trying to say. I'll be back later --Pheon 19:16, 2 June 2007 (CDT)
If you look at my recent change, you'll see I added commentary to make it sound a little bit more "Yearbooky" -- if this isn't what you were going for. Feel free to revert, Zoey. I also added a Setting Section because I DO think that change is significant. --Pheon 21:36, 2 June 2007 (CDT)
No, it totally looks good! I really like it!! Hm, should we add Jules and Nikki Bower maybe? OpAphid and Brother? I dont know much about the ARG so someone would really have to do that for me.. I couldn't say squat about the changes they've gone through. We also probably need to resize the images for setting so they match. But no seriously, this is looking really good! --Zoey 21:40, 2 June 2007 (CDT)
I was considering comparing how at the beginning there was CIW and then 'replaced' by OpAphid, but it seemed a little to Out-of-Story. We can add more characters sure, but I was thinking, if you like the "Yearbook-like" idea, then maybe we can add 'favorite moments,' 'favorite lines,' etc?? Okay . . . I'm needing a nap now--Pheon 21:43, 2 June 2007 (CDT)
This page is really great. I think we need to do something on the progression of Bree's religion from Aleister Crowley to Thelema to Enochian to The Order of Denderah to OpAphid to The Order to the Hymn of One. I mean, not necessarily those steps in that order, but you see what I mean, right? --JayHenry 22:49, 2 June 2007 (CDT)
BTW - the 27 weeks is counted from Life's Not Fair (as mentioned) to the 1 year anniversary mark. --Pheon 00:20, 3 June 2007 (CDT)

I added Bree's religion, as well as Jules. I tried to keep the "yearbook style" but uh, Pheon, you are much better at that than I am. Maybe you could spiff it up a bit? :P Does anyone else have suggestions for this page before the 16th? Thanks for all your input!! --Zoey 18:21, 6 June 2007 (CDT)

Ack, the 16th is comin' up, so I would really like it if anyone had any new thoughts or inputs! If there are no new suggestions before the 16th though, I'll go ahead and put it up. Hopefully this is enough time for everyone to voice their opinions..  ;) --Zoey 21:16, 9 June 2007 (CDT)

Yeah, sorry I haven't done anything here in a while, I just got back from Yosemite. Anyways, I like the recent additions, Zoey, and I'll try an see what I can come up with in the next few days. --Pheon 02:38, 10 June 2007 (CDT)

Tommorow is the 16th! In case I'm not on, can someone be sure to feature it please? Thanks :) --Zoey 17:54, 15 June 2007 (CDT)

Not a problem, but I would like to add a section mentioning the on-off-on again relationships. How should I go about this REALLY important part of LG15 without it sounding redundant to Relationships? Should it simply be summary-yearbooky, concentrating on the major events, OR should it be done in a different approach altogether??--Pheon 18:15, 15 June 2007 (CDT)
Well, I am sure some of what's already on this page is slightly redundant to other pages, it's just a summary page of then and now. I would do it in a yearbooky way and make it like.. Then: Jonas invites fellow orphan Bree to stay at his house... Now: Bree and Jonas spend the night together. Or however, but along those lines. Yeah... --Zoey 18:19, 15 June 2007 (CDT)

Outdated again :(

I love this page, but it seems to be outdated. I have a feeling it's always going to end up outdated. Why don't we bring this up to speed with the end of Season One and then go from there later? If you'd like, I'll do it, I just want a go-ahead. --Chartreuse 22:03, 11 September 2007 (CDT)

Naw, I like how it is because it's a shot of the series at the year-point. (It'd be cool to do this again at the two-year anniversary). Rather, we need a NEW Featured Article!! --Pheon 15:20, 9 October 2007 (CDT)
