I like the summoned by a cult idea best myself. I don't like to think of Slimer as once being some fat guy, because that guy would have to have been mentally challenged to end up as stupid and housepet-like as Slimer is in the cartoon.
Now if all we had to go by for Slimer's personality was the movie, THAT I could see being a dead guy.

Alright I have a burning question that needs to be answered! Okay, maybe its not that serious :)but since Fritz has incorporated the 88mph studios miniseries into the timeline, I would like to know what is going to happen to Louis' money. By GB2 he obviously doesn't have much because he had to move in with his mother and he went back to school. Is anyone planning a story revolving this? Also if he has just become excentric and hid his money in accounts, then how was it handled when he ( involuntary gag reflex) married Janine? She had a job at a day care center toward the end of the amrriage but did they have money? Also Louis comes back to GB after the twins are born. Does he make any financial contributions to the company. I know there is a renovation, does he have anything to do with that? I know this is quite a list of questions but the wheels have been turning on a story idea I have and I might need to know some of this. ghostdiva

Y'know, those are some good questions. Could probably be the basis of a story...
Off the top of my head, a possibility or two:
--Louis was wiped out with bad investments.
--Louis put his money in the Silverado Savings and Loan and Marvin (or was it Niel?) Bush stole it
--Louis was talked into financing one of Charlie Venkman's schemes
--Louis overspent on fancy baubles and Slovenian models, and when his fifteen minutes were up and the checks stopped coming, he was broke.
--In our version Louis may not have been quite as stinking rich as he appeared in "Legion". It clearly wasn't written with even GB2 in mind, so it may be one of the facts that gets fudged to make everything fit better.
I've been wanting to do a wholly GBOT/Ectozone Fan Fic oriented version of the Timeline for a while now. Take all the stuff that we could only call "speculation" or "conjecture" in the main Timeline (which is an attempt to emphasize the officially licensed material) and say "Well, in THIS universe it's fact." And of course get everyone up to date on the fan fic destinies of the the original characters, and put in the Franchises.
This is still very much a "work in progress"--I've mostly started with what I knew, the Franchises I work most closely with, but just because you're not on it doesn't mean you never will be. In fact, I'm hoping some of the Franchises will help organize their information to help me include them in updates (birthdates, significant events, ect)
I hope it will prove useful to understanding the world we're trying to create.
I shouldn't have tried to read it all at once, and especially whilst tired - I have a headache. Ah well - as a reference, it's extremely useful.
Can I be really picky? I think Hayden Wallance was born in 1994 - at least, he's almost a year younger than Jessica in my stories. 11 in 2005... sounds right. Sorry.
Anyway, it's interesting that 1985 should be such an eventful year - that was when I was born, and the world changed forever. ;D Um, yeah, as a point of interest, I think that was also the year Kylie's mother walked out on her family - and of course, it is the "ground year" of the Back to the Future trilogy. (I watched the first movie for the first time just days after my mother happened to tell me I was born in 1985 - it was so exciting! ;D)
Right now it doesn't. I think the movie came out in, what, 1996? In Timeline terms, this was during the hiatus between RGB and EGB--Ray wasn't even a Ghostbuster at that time.
Plus, while a funny nod to the Ghostbusters movies, it didn't really portray Ray in the most flattering of lights. Quite frankly, since he had a proton pack Ray Stantz would mop up the floor with those bozoes instead of running away like a little girl. Of course, if he did that, there would be no Casper movie, right?
It would have to be regarded as A) an Alternate Universe or B) Exactly what it was, actor Dan Aykroyd playing the part as a brief inside joke.
