: : #FF: Lane Fans @WeLoveLane
#YR For myself and many others we want a s/l for #Lane Cane and Lily that accentuates and focuses on them as a couple and all that they have overcome in a positive way. We want to see Cane and Lily supporting each other and fighting,talking and loving their way through what is going on. Cane has some demons from the past that's never been explored. He and Lily have never really talked about these past demons and fixed them. Also Neil and Devon's issues with Cane need to be addressed. Lily has gone through hell and we've never seen her talk with Cane about the affects all this has had on her. Does she ever fear the cancer returning? We never see her talk about the best friend she lost. Then there's the twins that we never see. Cane and Lily both desparately wanted children but yet we never see them with their kids. It's so disappointing as fans to never see a s/l for Lane that isn't based on destruction. If you value fans and their opinions, please listen and correct the wrongs, because We Love Lane and want more and better for them!!!

#YR @SonyPictures please take time to read the following wise points made by Doug Marland about soaps:
- Learn the history of the show. You would be surprised at the ideas that you can get from the back story of your characters.
*Lane Cane and Lily have a unique and special history that should be built upon, not forgotten.
-Read the fan mail. The very characters that are not thrilling to you may be the audience's favorites. (I would add read your tweets)
*Fans have tweeted, wrote, called and emailed for years in support of Lane Cane and Lily to no avail in them getting more airtime and s/l that's well written and appealing.
-Be objective. "When I came in to ATWT, the first thing I said was, what is pleasing the audience?" You have to put your own personal likes and dislikes aside and develop the characters that the audience wants to see.
*Fans have been begging for years for Lane Cane and Lily to be developed as a couple and as individuals in the way of s/ls that involve jobs, romance and family life.
-Don't change a core character. You can certainly give them edges they didn't have before, or give them a logical reason to change their behavior. But when the audience says, "He would never do that," then you have failed.
-Good soap opera is good storytelling. It's very simple
