And the ironic thing is... when I first planned to launch TLT in 2007, Maggie WAS originally going to be a girl who lived in medieval Ireland (and would actually stay in that time period). I decided to make her a present-day friend of Cassie's... and I thought up the little twist on her life later.
TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [CW & BG "compare notes" at Starbucks] (CW) "So, Beth, you got a report for me?" (BG) "Well, I invited Rodney to lunch with me, and the conversation got really interesting." (MG) "Hey ladies, what's the happs?" (BG) "Cassie went back to 1991, got wasted at a Memorial Day party and ended up in bed with a younger Rodney." (MG) "Wow... I can't say I expected THAT reply!" (CW) "Fortunately we didn't end up in a relationship, but Rodney and Maggie aren't together anymore. They never even fell in love in the first place!" (BG) "And about Maggie... Do we tell her about this?" (CW) "The more I think about it, the more I believe that's a bad idea. If we tell her that she and Rodney were meant to be together... even if they were supposed to be together... she'd think we were setting her up, effectively making Rodney very unappealing to her. And that would really fuck things up." (BG) "But we got her from another time. All the 'alternate timeline' stuff might make sense to her!" (CW) "I say we just try to fix this back in '91 and hope everything plays out the original way." (MG) "Uhhh, wait... What was that about Maggie being from another time???" (BG) "You wanna tell him or you want me to?" (CW) "I got this."
