Michelle Does What She Wants

July 23, 2015

This point is a very important part of the Manny relationship. Danny explains this point at several different times to quite a few different people, but this is a nice example. One of the best parts of the Manny relationship is that Danny accepts Michelle for who she is and doesn’t try to control her. Even though other people love Michelle most of them try to control Michelle. Danny doesn’t. It seems quite often someone is telling him to control Michelle or to accuses him of forcing her to act a certain way.

Danny disputes both things. He figured out the importance of letting Michelle be her own person very early in their relationship and he holds to it all the way. He tries to explain this relatively simple point to many other people, but none of them get it. With every example, it makes my Mannyac heart soar. ♥

In the clip below Claire Ramsey (Michelle’s biological mother) accuses Danny of forcing Michelle to not have a relationship with Claire. Although Danny doesn’t like and doesn’t trust Claire, he responds as he normally does when someone gets on him about controlling Michelle. He actually means this quote below. His main concern is if Claire hurts Michelle and he will intervene then if he can, but even then he leaves decisions about how Michelle wants to live her own life to Michelle.

Danny to Claire: “Let me tell you something, Michelle does whatever she wants. As far as you are concerned I don’t say anything one way or another. If Michelle wants to have a relationship with you then that’s her deal.”

Something About You – Part 32 by ShellyLynn

July 23, 2015

Republisher’s Note: Michelle is struggling to get out of the trap Bill and Ed have set for her.

Something About You – Part 32 by ShellyLynn

Michelle climbed the stairs up to the balcony of the lighthouse, wrapping a blanket tightly around her shoulders as she looked out over the water. It was so beautiful, so peaceful. So many times in her life she went there and just the calm of it made her feel better. It was a place that helped her to solve so many of the problems she had encountered in the past. This time however, it wasn’t a solution she was searching for. This time, it was a way to reconcile within her own heart what she wanted and what she knew she must do.

She had always dreamed of finding the kind of love she had with Danny, but ironically, that love is the one thing that was forcing her to give him up. She knew what losing Mikey would do to him and she couldn’t be the cause of his despair. He had already lost so much, so many people in his life, she wasn’t sure he could handle losing the last remaining member of his family.

Right then, she supposed, he was probably really worried about her though. She was way late for her date to meet him at the Falls and she contemplated calling him to let him know she was okay, but decided against it. She didn’t think she could steady her voice to talk to him anyway. He would be able to read her like a book, even from miles away.

She wondered how she would find a way to tell him. Sure, he would be hurt by her news, but he would get over her, she swallowed around the lump in her throat at the thought. He would be able to find someone else and have a family. He would be able to continue raising Mikey into the kind of man anyone would be proud of. He would find happiness and she would hold onto that hope and the wonderful night they spent together to get her through the rest of hers. Knowing that he was okay would make it worth the pain. It was the only choice she found herself in the position to make. She only hoped she could find the strength to go through with it.

The wind blew her hair into her face and she reached up and tucked the stray strands behind her ears. If she closed her eyes, she could almost feel Danny’s hand doing the very same thing just hours before. She tried to block his image from her mind, knowing that it was the only way to get through this, but the harder she tried, the more his face invaded her thoughts. His smile… his laugh… his kiss.

“Ugh,” she sighed, shaking her head violently, making a mental note that she must have run out of tears a long time ago. “Go away, please,” she pleaded, trying to convince her heart she was doing the right thing.

“I just got here,” a voice came in response.

“How did you know I was here?” she asked, keeping her eyes trained on the water before her.

“I know you, Michelle. We’ve been friends for a long time,” the voice responded. “You have always come here when you get upset.”

“You could fix that you know,” she answered, her voice wavering slightly. “You don’t have to do this.”

“Michelle…”

“Come on, Bill,” she said, turning to face him. “If we were really friends, you wouldn’t put me through this. If you cared about me at all, you would want me to be happy.”

“You will be. Come on, Michelle. Our marriage will make us some of the most powerful people in the world. We care about each other. That’s enough,” he said, he said calmly, as if his reasoning would be enough to convince her to see clear to his way of thinking.

“It’s not,” she refuted him, “I have exactly what I want with Danny. How do you expect me to walk away from that? How do you expect me to tell him that I’m marrying someone else? I can’t do that. I’ll never be able to look him in the eye and convince him that I don’t love him as much as he loves me.”

A noise at the bottom of the stairs caught her attention, her eyes turning to the doorway. “Michelle?” she heard, ‘Michelle? Are you here?”

“Oh my God, it’s Danny,” she gasped, both excited and terrified at the same time. It looked like the moment she’d been dreading had finally arrived. She would have to tell him her decision. She would have to look him in the eye and break his heart.

She heard his steps getting closer as he climbed the stairs to the observation deck. She looked at Bill, detesting the smug, almost excited look on his face. She couldn’t help but wonder how she had ever considered him to be one of her closest friends. Now, against her wishes, the man she could now barely stand to look at would be becoming her husband. She couldn’t think of any other way out of it.

The door began to open and she took a step away from it, holding her breath as she waited for Danny’s arrival. She couldn’t do this to him, she realized suddenly, at least not in front of Bill. There had to be another way, didn’t there? She couldn’t break his heart and humiliate him at the same time.

Before she got the chance to change her mind, Bill grabbed her and pulled her close to him, planting a firm, rough kiss on her lips. “Michelle?” she heard Danny’s meek voice from behind.

“Danny,” she gasped, finally able to break free. “This isn’t what you think…”

“She didn’t want you to find out this way, Danny. She wanted to tell you in person, face to face with no distractions, but now that you’ve caught us, we might as well tell you. Michelle and I are getting married.”

“You’re a liar,” Danny gritted through his teeth, taking a step toward Bill even as he said it.

“Tell him, Michelle,” Bill said firmly, holding onto her arm.

She gazed at him with a look of pure hatred before turning to Danny and taking a deep breath, “It’s true,” she managed, holding onto Bill’s arm in what appeared to be a gesture of love, but was really the only thing keeping her knees from collapsing beneath her.

“It can’t be, Michelle,” Danny tried, unable to grasp her quick turnaround. “You love me, I know you do, and I love you. We belong together…”

“We’re getting married in two weeks,” Bill stated firmly, surprising both of them. “You’re welcome to come, Santos.”

“No thank you,” Danny said, fighting to contain his emotions. This couldn’t be happening again. She swore she would never leave him, how could she do this. “I thought you were different. I thought that we were going to spend the rest of our lives together, but I guess you were playing me for the fool. Maybe everyone was right, I was okay to slum with, but not to marry. Sorry to interrupt your lovefest,” he choked, knowing he had to get out of there before he broke down. “Have a happy life.”

He turned around and walked back through the door as Michelle collapsed into a heap on the ground. “How could you do that? I can’t do this to him, not this way.”

“I did what had to be done,” he said nonchalantly, gripping the rail as he looked at her. “You weren’t strong enough to do it on your own, so I did it for you. You should be thanking me. Come on, let me take you home and make you forget all about this.”

“Let’s get one thing straight. I may be marrying you, but I’m doing if for Danny’s sake and I will never betray our love by sleeping with you,” she choked, finding a few tears that apparently were waiting for that moment to be shed. “I want you to leave.”

“Fine,” he said, taking a step toward the door to leave, “He’ll get over it you know. He’ll find another woman to seduce, maybe not as rich, but at least he’ll have the kid.”

She shook her head, remembering Mikey, the reason she was doing this. “Mikey is lucky that he’ll never have to know what a despicable man his father is.”

Bill laughed, easily shrugging off her insult. “You need to drop by and talk to the coordinator. We have a wedding to plan.”

He shut the door behind him and Michelle looked up at the sky. “Lord,” she prayed. “Please forgive me for what I’m doing to Danny. Please help him to deal with this and move on. All I want is for him to be happy, even if it can’t be with me. Please help him to find forgiveness in his heart for me as well, I never wanted to hurt him. If there’s any other way out of this, I pray that you’ll help me find it.”

Bauer BBQ 2014 by Robansuefarm Chapter 4

The crowd slowly shifted from the Bauer patio through the hedge to the Spaulding backyard. Rick led the way over the flat part of the lawn. It had rented white folding chairs set up in two groups with a white carpet runner up the middle between the two groups. The chairs were all faced in one direction facing the white wood trellis with red roses. A small string ensemble softly began playing background music. The guests gradually settled down and even the whispers trailed off…

I’m sorry I left this off when it should have been the Bauer BBQ summary, but my motherboard died. I’m working on getting it fixed and in the meantime I’m off the grid. I’ll post when I can. :(

Your Least Favorite Bauer BBQ

July 7, 2015
Blake Working Grill

Blake Working Grill

Now everyone loves the Bauer BBQ. It featured some of the highest ratings in the Guiding Light year, but not every year can be a winner.

Was there a year where your favorite couple was on the outs? Did you really hate the decorations one year? Did it really bother you when the Minature Marler almost drowned? Were you screaming to get Gus tossed out on his ear when he showed up uninvited?

What was your least favorite Bauer BBQ? Answer in the comments below.

P.S. So yes, I did just realize I had to stretch this out one more night, but I’ll gladly take any comments about the Bauer BBQ or what you’d like to see during Future Bauer BBQ Weeks.

OK, I said last night was my last fanfic reblog, but that was before I remembered the last 2 chapters of my Bauer BBQ story last year didn’t get finished on time. So here is a reblog of chapter 3 and look for chapter 4 tomorrow.

Author’s Note: When I working on writing this I had to determine who would be around and how old the kids of Springfield would be now. I expanded on this in a post, but this much I hope will be helpful here. Sarah Randall was born in 2006 and she is 8 this year. Peyton was born in 2008 and she is 6 this year. Jude Bauer was born October 12, 2001 and is also 13 because he’s during the part of the year where he and Robbie are the same age, and part of the year he will be a year older than Robbie. I’m going to pretend Leah is just a fast developer and say she’s 12 just to get her back younger than Jude like she should be in the story, but to deal with the fact we’ve already seen her as a teenager on screen.

Bauer BBQ 1996

July 6, 2015

It’s the year when Ed has abandoned Rick and Michelle to move to Africa. Sadly rather than try to throw the Bauer BBQ by himself, Rick has cancelled it. So this is the year of the Surprise BBQ! I don’t understand though why everyone decided to wait to suprise Rick after dark – which would put it somewhere around 9:30 pm CT – when the BBQ is always a noon event. What has everyone been doing? Did they decide to go to the parade this year or something? OH! Earlier that day was the big demonstration where Alan Spaulding tried to blow up 5th Street. Another inexplicable thing is after the BBQ is over the same exact group of people head over to Towers. I don’t understand this timeline at all, but that’s how Springfield rolled in 1996.

Rick suprised by Bauer BBQ 1996

Michelle is definitely showing this is Rebecca Budig’s version. Marcus is sulking to his father about how he isn’t making any progress with Dehlia. Dehlia is going to the fireworks with J. Chamberlain instead. That was sure a spooky sound effect at the beginning of the opening. I remember this theme, but not that sound effect. (Jumped ahead to the next one spooky sound was there too. It must have been a thing in 1996, but must not have lasted long.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EtWgvab6u4 (Part 1)

Alan-Michael is convinced he saw a light in the lighthouse. Lucy isn’t so sure. They are married now and the reason someone being in the lighthouse upsets Lucy and A-M is back at New Year’s Eve they were both being held captive there by madman Brett Lawrence. While J is out of the room let me take advantage of the time to say just how much I resent them changing Anthony James’s name to J. They built an entire storyline including a viewer call in vote about naming him when he was born and now they don’t even give him a name, he’s a single letter. We have some nice early Rick-Abby scenes as she is preparing to move into the Bauer garage apartment. The young people are having a beach party. Michelle is still moping about not dating her cousin anymore. J. knew Dehlia was using him. That’s kind of great. I wish they had played J.’s powers of observation more. This was a great little analysis scene they could have played more of them and archeologist references are always cool. It hurts to see the lighthouse messed up like that.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6_8fi94XHY (Part 2)

Lucy and Alan-Michael find a kerosene lantern in the lighthouse. They can clearly see the beach where Michelle’s beach party is. It’s close to the lighthouse. Rick had given up on the BBQ when all of his friends and family show up. Abby had worked with Lillian and gotten Grandma Bert’s recipes from Michelle to organize it all. Rick reports that Ed did call in that morning. Nice catch. Phillip is fairly newly returned and wasn’t in town for Vanessa and Matt’s wedding so he doesn’t know how Nola accidentally food poisoned everybody at the reception. This really does underline how far Annie’s life fell within a year. Here she is a happy, welcome member of town, but in just a year she will be the town pariah. It really makes 1997 when she gate crashes in an almost identical outfit much more poignant. I really love how Rick always translates for Abby whether he’s talking to her directly or not. Bill is bullied over Matt.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIyxJq2KMR4 (Part 3)

The Grants have to leave and Phillip pulls Rick aside. They talk about his quest to find out which family member was behind the judge’s insistence that part of Rick and Phillip’s probation be that they had to be out of Springfield. Alan-Michael and Lucy show up and spill 1. That someone was at the lighthouse 2. A-M had spied on Ed one year and knew the exact recipe of Bauer Burgers. Sadly the Zachary Smith aka Angel Boy story is beginning. Zachary knew Vanessa has a potentially fatal disease and is interfering to make sure it is diagnosed. This genetic ailment would drive stories for years until they decided to do their best to make Dinah 100% bad guy before she and Hart left the canvas. The actor later said the storyline had ended up playing out much differently than originally scripted.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msL2QkJGwIs (Part 4)

Gilly invites Griffin to the fireworks. This storyline is going to revolve around the fact that Gilly’s mother Vivian had been involved with Griffin around the time Gilly was conceived. Vivian is trying to keep this quiet both because she has firmly put her activist days behind her in favor of being a society blueblood and because she’s not sure that her husband really is Gilly’s father. Phillip is working on the hand crank ice cream churn. Phillip and Lucy have a really nice conservation, too bad part of what Phillip is doing is working Lucy for information trying to root out who betrayed him. Rick decides Vanessa does need that MRI and tells her so. This bit where Angel Boy just talks as if he’s vaguely reporting and acts like he is or isn’t getting an answer that we can’t hear is a regular part of the storyline.

We get a last shot at all the stories under fireworks with Marcus seeing Dehlia with J. and Griffin telling Gilly he’d had an affair with her mother lit more fireworks for tomorrow.

Episode Break

Phillip is up to something making secret phone calls. Rick looks terrible with his hair slicked like that. Blake must be pregnant with the Miniature Marlers. Dueling Rogers. Too bad what I like and dislike about Roger are evenly split. The nice emotional Roger is in restraints, but his strength and cleverness is all in the tuxedo version.

This is when Hart and Dinah were working together to get revenge against Roger. Roger deserved it, but some of their actual interactions with Roger were hard to watch. Gilly reacts to Griffin’s revelation that he’d had an affair with her mother.

Abby is set up by the idea of family members fighting against each other. Actually I think Abby has a very good point. Phillip shows up to talk to Lucy at the yacht after A-M has to run into the office. Let’s see Phillip you showed up at A-M’s wedding and tried to make it all about you. For the record, if you’re getting as tired of Phillip’s probing as I am, Alan was the one responsible for the out of state probation.

Blake shows up to visit Roger in the hospital. Hart feels guilty for what they’ve done to Roger. I think both Dinah and Hart make some good and true points about Roger. Marcus is still mooning over Dehlia. Lucy is a lot smarter in a lot of ways than Phillip thinks.

I just love watching Rabby together. Marcus and Gilly have a nice soul searching session.

I know it sounds like A-M is being paranoid, but he’s 90% right. He just doesn’t know Phillip has revenge on his mind instead of power.

Blake gets back to Towers. Lucy meets Zachary again. Roger arrives at the penthouse will Dinah and Hart in his bed after Blake unbinds him at the hospital.

Bauer BBQ 2014 by Robansuefarm Chapter 2

July 6, 2015

glmanny:

Our last reblog of a Bauer BBQ fanfic. Please start working on yours for next year. I’d accept them at any time. Remember they can be any characters from any time as long as a part takes place at the BBQ.

Author’s Note: Nope still not divulging much. I will say that I just gave Michelle my mother’s new car because loves it and I thought Michelle would too.  It’s a 2014 Jeep Cherokee. Also, in making sure we have the kids at the right ages, the then Marcy Rylan had son Jackson, who should get credit for playing the baby bump that was H.B. Lewis IV, on  Oct. 21, 2009. Since she only revealed her pregnancy in the flash forward set in September 2010, Little Billy the Fourth should have been born at least approximately Oct. 21, 2010 which would make him 4 now and a year older than Dani Santos. Sarah Randall was born in 2006 and she is 8 this year.

Jude Bauer Running at Jessup Farm Bauer BBQ – Had Inflatables Instead of Pool

The normal location for the Bauer BBQ after it became a big party was the Bauer House located on Skyline Drive next door to the Spaulding Mansion. This location was great. People always looked forward to see the patio all decorated for the party. The Bauer house location had the added advantage that they could have scenes outside and in the kitchen where everybody arrived at the back door so anyone could run into each other especially if they had reason not to want too and they always did. On top of that they could have private scenes in the bedrooms. It was just the perfect place to host a soap opera party.Bauer BBQ 1990

While the Bauer House was the normal location for the BBQ, they did hold it some place else four times over the years. I had forgotten about 1988 being somewhere else, I might have missed another one, but I think I have them all now.

  • Hanger for Opening of Johnny Bauer’s Flying School and General Aviation Operation – 1987
  • Park With Gazebo – 1988
  • Main Street set – 2007
  • Jessup Farm – 2008
