Hi, my name is Jules. I'm 22 and am working towards my Writing degree after recently finishing a Songwriting course. I was invited by my friend - the talented PaceHalliwell - to join this site, so here I am. We've been creating our own versions of the Charmed spin-off series, and mine is called Ultimately Charmed. Been working on it since 2009 but I've only shared it with some friends. Now UC finally has its own blog, which you're all welcome to visit :) But I'll also be posting the series info, character details, and scripts here so all FF.net members who are interested to follow the series can look it up. It's basically the same thing, but the extras will mostly be on the blog.
MY LIST OF FAVORITES
Lauren Woodland ... Gwen Carlson
OPENING CREDITS - SEASON 1 (Youtube)
Born along the Warren line, the Halliwells have long stood out in records as the most powerful witches there ever were. The existence of the legendary Charmed Ones is proof of the extraordinary powers inherited by every Halliwell to battle all evil entities that emerge on the surface of the universe and to save the lives of many innocents. All these witches were known as women of incredible strength, independence and determination. With every newborn witch being a female, it was groundbreaking news when one of the Charmed Ones welcomed the arrival of a son, a boy with very special abilities. As the first one out of three male witches born in the new generation of Halliwells, he was showered with countless blessings with the guidance and goodness of his ancestors at the time of his prophesized birth and his Wiccaning ceremony. He is going to be known as the most powerful witch ever to roam the earth and the heir to Excalibur, the legendary sword owned by the great King Arthur. He is the Twice Blessed witch. He is Wyatt Halliwell (Wes Ramsey).
The year is 2028. The setting is Seattle, Washington. Wyatt is all grown up and just landed himself a job as a photographer in one of the city’s leading fashion and lifestyle magazines for men, ULTIMATE. He shares a townhouse with his brother Chris Halliwell (Drew Fuller) and cousin Henry Mitchell Jr. (Michael Cassidy), both of whom he has bonded with since childhood due to being the only guys around in the younger generation. He is also reunited with his high school sweetheart Gwen Carlson (Lauren Woodland), who helps him adapt to the rhythm of the city after moving out of his San Francisco hometown, making it easy for him to keep up with his active social life.
But when it comes to witch business, everything is unmanageable. Even with his experience of saving innocents and guiding them in solving a series of supernatural-related cases, Wyatt hasn’t completely focused on his magical duties. He witnesses the many challenges of balancing his normal life with magic, and what's surprising is he’s not ready to take on Excalibur. Seattle needs him, especially at a time when the Underworld is rising with a fully devised plan to destroy all lines of witches, including him.
But Wyatt’s fears eventually diminish upon learning Chris and Henry are on his side after an old book of prophecy has revealed that both of them are also blessed with the same destinies to carry on combating evil. That means he is not alone on his journey, for the three of them are the new protectors of the innocent- the new Charmed Ones. In addition, he is also backed by Gwen, a new confidante named Alexa Roxbury (Katharine McPhee) and an unlikely ally in free-spirited demon Alokar (Kris Lemche). They all form a strong inner circle of evil banishers. With all the support system surrounding him, nothing could possibly go wrong in Wyatt’s world. Or could it? Will Wyatt finally be brave enough to fully embrace his destiny and Excalibur?
The adventures of Wyatt, Chris, Henry and company will become the major highlight of Ultimately Charmed.
Style & Tone
The feel of the show traces back to the roots of the first 3 seasons of Charmed, where the genre takes on the form of a heartwarming family drama with a supernatural twist. There’s also a blend of other genres, including mystery, thriller and fantasy. The element of a ‘witch detective story’ is maintained as the boys and company are faced with new supernatural-related cases in every episode. Various common themes will be explored throughout the series, such as friendship, brotherhood, family, love and acceptance.
WYATT HALLIWELL (Wes Ramsey)
As carefree as he may seem, he gets all serious every time demons attack and would do anything he can to protect those he loves, even if this means pushing them away at times. Expect him to throw a punch when someone makes an insult at him or the people he knows well. Behind the all-star attitude, he actually cares about the problems others face and will offer a helping hand whenever needed, especially when it comes to Chris and Henry, knowing they’re the only family he has in Seattle. One of his major low downs is Excalibur. Just the thought of it is intimidating him. He feels way unprepared to handle a sword so legendary and powerful. Nobody knows the actual reason behind this - he’s too embarrassed to tell. If there’s one thing that stands out in Wyatt’s super messy room, it’s his thorough collection of clippings featuring his favorite women in the world.
CHRIS HALLIWELL (Drew Fuller)
Another talent he possesses is drawing, which he has left behind to keep him away from unpleasant high school memories. One minus point is he can be neurotic at times - too much of a perfectionist and a ‘drama king’ at the very best, often jumping into conclusions way too fast. He's also not that bright in the area of love, despite his job. Sometimes he needs a reminder to be romantic, because fighting demons is his main priority. That’s why his love life is quite a roller coaster, though Alexa will probably change that.
Mr. Congeniality is definitely a title Henry has always been living with. His quirky, sunshine-filled personality is an indicator that he’s easy to warm up to. He's also very modest. Meeting new people from different walks of life is something he enjoys, which leads him into joining various community groups in and out of college in hopes of getting the door to becoming a successful event organizer open for him someday. But in order to achieve his goal, he’s got to work on the one thing that’s standing in his way: punctuality issues. He often arrives late for meetings. But as far as romance goes, Henry really fits the ‘dream guy’ figure, being loyal to his girlfriend and all. He may not inherit that many abilities as of now, but there’s no other Halliwell who is blessed with the unique powers of illusion, dream walking and mind-reading, so he's simply a one-of-a-kind witch who stands out on his own.
Being the only male cousin of Wyatt and Chris, he has been hanging with them ever since they were toddlers, which explains the close bond among the three of them. Wyatt and Chris even consider him their little brother. But there’s a darker side to his personality that he’s hiding from them and everyone else, which revolves around the untimely deaths of his twin sisters in their youth plus the feeling of inferiority regarding his limited magical powers. If you spot some classic European movies and music in the living room, chances are Henry might have rented them. Befriending people from different parts of the world gives him unlimited access to new ideas and inspiration. He is a music junkie and knows a great deal about what’s hot in the industry. It’s always him who makes the compilation CDs during private events.
GWEN CARLSON (Lauren Woodland)
The idea of lounging for a kick-back after a busy day is definitely a turn-on for her. After she left San Francisco for Seattle in the final year of senior high, she thought her relationship with Wyatt was way over, knowing her boyfriend couldn’t handle long distances. Never has she imagined that they both would come across each other again years later, let alone working at the same place. Is this really destiny in the making? The answer would be her job to find out. Gwen is completely in touch with her witch heritage, though she tends to overdo the usage of her powers in public.
Breed: Phoenix witch
According to Alexa, 'black is chic'. This edgy girl always keeps her outfits hip and glam at almost every occasion, thus defining her fashion statement. Never underestimate her petite figure. She is a total badass with her boyish personality. Nobody really expects her to be an expert in kickboxing. Alexa is first introduced to Wyatt and Chris by means of Henry, who happens to be her classmate in college. Although she and the three guys later learn one another's witch heritages, she still decides to keep her identity a secret. After all, she finds pleasure in working solo. But she eventually grows weary of it and goes on to becoming the boys’ partner in crime, assisting them with their magical duties. Alexa is highly addicted to boots. She has an extensive range of boots from different parts of the world, which she buys from Net-A-Porter and online fashion stores.
Being an only child, she emancipated herself from her parents during her rebellious 16th year, a choice that she later regretted when they died in a car accident. Now she lives with her wealthy grandmother Renee Delancey in one of the Seattle suburbs. Even with her family’s rich economical background, her humble personality shines on. As much as she wans to deny it, she has a secret crush on Chris, so it's obvious that she immediately says yes to him after he admits that he also has feelings for her. Will it last forever or will they find intrusion in Alokar? That’s still a question mark for them. Alexa is working her way up to becoming an interior designer.
Killing witches and stealing their powers? As cool as it may sound, Alokar would rather be auditioning for the next off-Broadway production of Grease, though it means he has to jet off to New York instead of staying in the greasy Underworld of Seattle. He has one too many talents, but having been raised by Divarkaz - the Mistress of Evil - ever since his birth, he has to serve a lifetime full of hunting for innocents, witches and whitelighters. This is one duty he couldn’t shake off, as much as he wanted to. Sometimes he daydreams about the colorful life a normal human can lead and deludes himself at the thought of walking in their shoes. When stress is taking over, he would escape from his job for a little while and poses as an ordinary human under the name Alvin Sanchez to check out pretty ladies at the sidewalk and hanging with street skateboarders until one of Divarkaz’s demons spot him. He later befriends Chris and Henry and gets involved in a short-lived romantic entanglement with Alexa, but upon knowing his real identity as a demon, Wyatt cuts him out of the group. Will Alokar finally redeem himself in the end? Will his good side triumph over the evil one? This is what his personal quest is all about.
