I know what you’re thinking. “Who the hell is Layla Richardson? There was no Layla on One Tree Hill, at least not any I remember. And I know my show, girl.”
Allow me to explain.
As a mega tv person, I tend to do this thing where I picture myself as a made up character on my favorite shows. Now my obsession over One Tree Hill was in a league of its own, and I really lived, and breathed that show. So naturally I thought up a character I’d play, if I was on One Tree Hill.
This was lost on me, for years. I completely forgot about this. I was cleaning out my room, because I am redoing it from start to finish, and I came across a bunch of old stuff. (Stay Tuned for a bunch of blog posts coming your way…thanks to all the old boxes that should be labeled Michelle’s crap…I seriously have way too much junk.) But never fear, amidst the junk there are some gems. Like my Character breakdown for one Ms. Layla Richardson. (Written in cursive, mind you…who uses script anymore?)
What if I was on One Tree Hill
I would be: Layla Richardson
*Friend of: Lucas & Haley’s clique (& of Brooke)
*Come in mid Season 2
*Was Nathan’s confidant: BFFL
*Helps with get rid of Dan campaign
*Joyful, Cheery—> a cheerleader
*A little Haley, Brooke, & Peyton in one.
*Dating: Tim Smith
*Cares about everyone’s well-being and always tries to help people out.
HAHA this gave me a really good laugh, and I resisted the major urge to edit my past teenage self. I seriously would change so much, but at the same time there’s something so pure in finding clips of who you used to be and how you used to think. Basically my thought process was this, Layla would be best friends with Lucas and Haley. But still close to the popular Brooke Davis. When Haley leaves Nathan for tour, Layla would become his “BFFL” and rally along with the troops to support him. Nathan would confide in her. Layla was also all the good things of each of the three female characters rolled into one. Thinking back, I’d probably say she was smart like Haley, fashion forward and a cheerleader like Brooke and a big music fan like Peyton. As for dating Tim, I guess he was the only one not attached to one of the main girls, haha. And well he was a Ravens basketball player too, so, I’m sure they just fell for each other. Oh and who doesn’t want to help get rid of Dan, I mean let’s be serious here? Well well, it’s a breath of fresh air to think that this Layla Richardson character was basically gonna come in and fix shit, like a boss. Tree Hill would have never knew what hit them. 😉
So do you ever picture yourself in your favorite tv shows? Who do you play?
Or do you dream up a whole new character like me?
Humor me, and my tv related dreams.
I know I am crazy, but I’m not ashamed. 😉
