    Alrighty then!! I have written some original Horatio/Calleigh scenes for the show. It's the stuff that you may never see... or will eventually see if I get on the writer's team. :lol: These two scenes were previously posted in the DuCaine shipper thread, but I will post these scenes and all updates to this forum in the future. Have a read, and let me know what you think. Constuctive critiscism please, be completely honest. Thanks guys!!

    It's the end of a long day. Horatio and the team have apprehended a serial killer, whose victims were young mothers and their children.
    Using mainly trace and ballistics evidence, the killer is going away for a long time, thanks to the crimelab. Horatio is at home after comforting the family of the killer's final victim, but he's not alone. He's joined by a mystery guest...
    But who is it??
    (Pssst.. you all know who it is, but just to those who wouldn't know... ;))



    (There are candles lighting everywhere. Soft music
    in the background.
    Various dissolves in and out as the camera moves
    around the room.)

    (Front shot of Horatio sitting on a leather sofa.
    Pans in slowly as he starts talking.)
    HORATIO: It's always the same... everyday. Another scene,
    another victim...

    CUT TO:
    (Camera following a pair of black high heels
    walking across tiled floor. Horatio continues
    speaking during this.)
    HORATIO:(v.o.) Another murder solved, another

    (Cut back to: Camera focusing in slowly on Horatio,
    panning slightly left.)
    HORATIO: No matter how hard I try, how much
    I put into them, these cases always haunt me...

    CUT TO:
    (Shot of hands taking out a bottle of wine.)
    HORATIO: (v.o.) They plague me... and I can't escape...

    (Cut back to: Camera still panning slowly left of Horatio.)
    HORATIO: Their families have closure, justice is served...

    CUT TO:
    (Two wine glasses being filled.)
    HORATIO: (v.o.) But I can't help feeling defeated... feeling like
    a failure.

    CUT TO:
    (Horatio in full profile. His eyes close now as he talks.)
    The pain dives me until it's unbearable...

    CUT TO:
    (Half shot of the woman, holding the glasses, walking to the left
    of the screen.
    We don't see her face, and she's wearing a black dress.)
    HORATIO: (v.o.) I strive to make things right, to make this
    city safer...

    CUT TO:
    (Profile shot of Horatio.)
    HORATIO: It never relents, the endless cycle, it keeps on going.

    CUT TO:
    (Woman's hands putting glasses on coffee table.
    Camera moves towards Horatio, as does the woman,
    we still don't see her face.)
    HORATIO: Life doesn't wait for you... that couldn't be truer.

    (Horatio in focus, the woman sits down beside him.
    We see that it's Calleigh.)

    CALLEIGH: I feel the same...
    (Camera focuses in on her.)
    CALLEIGH: It doesn't get easier, does it?

    HORATIO: (leaning forward with
    a sigh) I just want it to end... I want...
    (looks at her) the pain to stop.

    CUT TO:
    (Front shot of Horatio and Calleigh. As dialogue
    continues, camera moves in slowly.)

    CALLEIGH: The pain you feel shows you're human...
    you have a heart, and that's what I admire about you.
    (Horatio smiles slightly, leaning back a little.
    Camera focuses in on him.)
    HORATIO: Hmmm... you've always cared, Calleigh.

    (Calleigh leans towards him slightly.
    Horatio dips his head, eyes downcast.)
    CALLEIGH: Each day I feel the pain... it pulls my heart...
    I am letting you know now that you're not alone...
    the agony you feel... I share it.

    CUT TO:
    (Horatio smiling.)
    HORATIO: I believe you.

    CUT TO:
    (Front shot if them both. Camera pans slowly to Calleigh's hands,
    as she takes his left hand in her own, interlacing their fingers.)

    HORATIO: (glancing up) Calleigh?
    CALLEIGH: Horatio?

    (Close up of them as they smile at each other.
    Horatio looks down at their hands, and rests his right hand
    over them.
    Close up on Calleigh as she smiles even more.
    Front shot of them as they lean towards each other.
    They hug.)

    HORATIO: I love your dress...
    CALLEIGH: (laughs) You flatterer! But I still think that
    I don't look good in all-black...
    HORATIO: (stroking her hair) Once again,
    (Camera cuts to close up of Calleigh closing her eyes,
    still smiling.
    Horatio pulls her back slowly to face him, and rests
    his forehead against hers.)
    HORATIO: ... I beg to differ.

    (They both open their eyes to look at each other.
    Camera pans slowly backwards.
    Final shot of Horatio and Calleigh holding each other.)


    Here's the second scene:

    Synopsis: Calleigh was involved in a shootout at a crimescene. She is cornered with a rifle pointing at her. Luckily, back-up arrives, with Horatio close behind. She is saved, but is whisked away by EMTs to check her out. Horatio arrests the perp, steaming mad.
    It's later that day, and Horatio comes by the lab to check on Calleigh. It's late, and the entire lab is empty...
    What's going to happen??

    (Shot of Calleigh in the
    firing range.
    Camera slowly pans from
    behind her to in front of her

    against the door, watching her

    head slightly, still

    CUT TO:
    (Calleigh taking off her earphones,
    shaking her hair a little.
    She sighs, picks up the gun,
    and starts to clean it.)

    Horatio: (o.s) You've improved,
    I see.

    CUT TO:
    (Calleigh jumps, the gun
    clattering on the work-table.
    She takes a deep breath,
    giving a small laugh.)

    Calleigh: Don't you ever knock?

    CUT TO:
    (Horatio smiling more, raising
    his hand to the door. He knocks
    3 times.)

    Horatio: Knock, knock, knock.

    Cut back to:
    (Calleigh smiling widely now,
    as she turns back to her

    Calleigh: If this gun was

    again, you are the Bullet Girl...

    Cut to:
    (Calleigh smiling, still cleaning her

    Horatio: (quietly) I'd expect nothing

    (Calleigh puts the gun down,
    tucking her hair behind her ears,
    she turns around, leaning against
    the table.)

    Calleigh: You sure know how to
    flatter a girl, Handsome.

    (Cut to shot of Horatio as he
    smiles, dipping his head.
    But he raises it again,
    serious now.)

    Horatio: Umm... I just came by...
    to see how you're doing.
    (A beat.) Are you okay, Calleigh?

    Cut to:
    (Calleigh lowering her eyes.
    Long beat.
    She raises her head.)

    Calleigh: I am, considering...
    (She bites her lip.)

    (Horatio steps in a little more,
    Calleigh plays with her hands,)

    Horatio: What happened to you
    was unthinkable... no one
    should have to go through it...

    CUT TO:
    (Calleigh smiling ironically.)

    Calleigh: I went through it, Horatio.
    What does that tell you?

    Cut back to:
    (Horatio looking at her, hands on
    his hips.)

    Horatio: Today tells me that
    right now... there is a very brave
    woman standing in front of me...

    CUT TO:
    (Calleigh shifting, her face glowing.)

    Cut back to:
    (Horatio talking.)

    Horatio: ... who has overcome
    everything that was thrown at her...
    and I am here to tell you, that I'm

    Calleigh: I'm gonna head... good
    night, Horatio.
    (She smiles as she walks up to
    him. He dips his head again,
    and looks up at her.)

    Okay, here we are with the next scene. If you've seen the promo, that was just a taster. If not, here's the tiny synopsis. Enjoy some more of CSI: DuCaine!!:

    All in a day's work for a CSI... Horatio and the crimelab solve yet another case. Everyone has gone home, and Horatio is leaving for the night, but he doesn't go to his own house...

    hesitating slightly.)

    sorry to intrude on your
    free-time but umm... I

    (Horatio chuckles.)

    HORATIO: Yeah... and I...
    just came to see how you are...

    cared about you, Calleigh...
    and I always will...

    a question in her eyes.

    shadows only inches

    (They turn, and go further
    inside, away from the door.
    The light goes off.

    Camera moves away
    from the door.)


    Just a quick note: some of my future scenes may not go in chronological order with this one, but I will do my best to make a decent storyline out of this. Most of them will be kind of one-off's, but I will try to keep some order to them.

    Tell me what you think... more coming soon!!

    See ya!!

    Hello!! :) Waiting's over for this installment! I hope it's not too much of a dive, I really like it, and I know for a fact, that something like this will NEVER happen on CSI: Miami! :rolleyes: :p But in CSI: DuCaine, anything's possible!! :D Lyrics are copyright of Shivaree. The song is called "Goodnight Moon".

    A stint in the Everglades has left a distinct impression on Calleigh... namely mud and grime!

    CALLEIGH: The worst crime-scene ever!!
    I'll never get this gunk outta my hair!!

    HORATIO: Perserverance pays in the
    end... and patience is a virtue.

    CALLEIGH: Easy for you to say!
    You stood on the bank!

    HORATIO: (chuckles.)

    A bit of dialogue from earlier on. Here's the scene now.
    Here we go!!:

    curse word.

    And there's glass on the lawn
    Tacks on the floor
    And the TV is on
    And I always sleep with my guns
    When you're gone...

    (Horatio turns around slowly,
    a smile spreading across his face.
    Calleigh's still singing, as Horatio
    leans back against the wall of
    the shower-room, listening.)

    There's a blade by the bed
    And a phone in my hand
    A dog on the floor
    And some cash on the nightstand
    When I'm all alone the dreaming stops
    And I just can't stand

    What should I do?
    I'm just a little baby
    What if the lights go out
    And maybe and then the wind just starts to moan
    Outside the door
    He followed me home
    Now goodnight moon
    I want the sun
    If it's not here soon
    I might be done
    No it won't be too soon
    'Til I say
    Goodnight moon

    (Calleigh emerges from the
    shower room, fully dressed,
    looking around.)

    CALLEIGH: Hmmm... I could've
    sworn... huh...

    (She walks out, taking another look
    She shrugs, and is about to leave,
    when something catches her eye.)

    CUT TO:
    (Shot of Horatio's locker-door,
    fully open.)

    fully closed.)

    Horatio's shirt.)

    her damp hair in her ponytail.

    Shot of Calleigh at the foot of
    the stairs.
    Long shot of her, zooming in.)

    Well, you're up so high
    How can you save me
    When the dark comes here
    Tonight to take me up
    The mouth from woke
    And into bed
    Where it kisses my face
    And eats my hand...

    That was for you, Handsome...
    I won't forget this...
    (whispers) This is our little secret...

    (She grins, before turning and
    walking away.
    Camera follows her briefly.)

    He laughs a little, nodding his head,
    before resuming his paper work,
    a smile on his face.)


    Hope you liked it. :)

    If anyone had any ideas, or would like to make requests for future scenes, I'm open to anything you think up. This is for all DuCaine fans, and I would like to see everyone have some creative input. You can PM me your ideas, or post them in this thread or the DuCaine ship thread.

    Thank you very much! More coming soon!

    Wow what great and intricate scenes you have written, you have a great talent and I think the writing team could use someone like you. Your scenes are so full of passion and feeling that it makes me feel as though I am there watching from the side lines or the veiws in which you exspress certain shots. Once again I say you have a great talent and I can't wait to see more of what you write!

    Oh, wow! :D Thank you all very much!! I'm so glad you enjoy my work. These scenes are the the product of shipping frustration and love for Horatio and Calleigh's relationship. I want to see them in something that can make an impact on someone; something beautiful that is really memorable. I see I've achieved just that! :) Thanks again for your lovely comments! Another scene is coming up!!

    Fade into:
    (Calleigh working on paperwork
    in the lab.)

    CUT TO;
    (Shot of pen writing away,
    after a second it's put down
    by Calleigh.
    She gives a sigh
    off-screen, and the camera moves
    up to her massaging her neck wearily.
    She makes one last note, before
    putting down the pen.

    She picks up the report, and walks out
    of the lab.)

    (The camera follows her as she heads
    through the hallways.

    Fading in and out are shots of Calleigh's
    face, her feet walking, and the report
    in her hand.)

    CUT TO:
    (Wide shot of the stairs leading to
    Horatio's office.

    Camera zooms in on the steps.)

    Shot cuts from behind her, to
    beside her, and to in front of her.

    Camera shot of door, zooming out.)

    (Calleigh approaches the door.
    There's no light on.

    Camera focuses in on Calleigh at
    the door, shot from behind.)

    (Calleigh quietly opens the door,
    assuming Horatio's gone, but as she
    takes a step inside, she gives a gasp, and
    backs out slightly.

    Interior shot of the door slightly open.
    Calleigh peeks her head.)

    Cut to:
    (Camera panning along the wall of
    Horatio's office, towards the desk.

    We see that Horatio has his head down...
    fast asleep.)

    Cut to:
    (Shot of Calleigh still looking in from
    the door, blinking rapidly,

    A pause, before Calleigh steps inside
    the door, turning slightly to shut it
    behind her.

    Camera cuts to shot behind her as she
    looks at Horatio.)

    Cut to:
    (Front shot of Calleigh as she steps forward,
    quietly, her breathing a bit quicker now.)

    Cut to:

    Calleigh reaches the desk, on
    Horatio's right side.)

    Cut to:
    (Shot of Calleigh as she stares at him
    She stands beside him, her hands clasped
    to her chest.
    Her eyes flit back and forth over him.

    Horatio gives a sleepy moan, Calleigh
    gets ready to bolt.

    He doesn't wake up.
    Calleigh breathes a sigh of relief.)

    (Camera follows her as she moves a bit closer,
    leaning over him still.
    Taking another breath, she reaches out,
    and slowly removed the pile of case folders
    he was leaning on, and rearranging his arms,
    so his head is resting on them.)

    Calleigh: Hope you don't mind. You looked

    (A small snore is her only reply.)

    Cut to:
    (Calleigh giggling, but she puts her hand over
    her mouth.)

    (Calleigh walking around to the front of the

    her chin on her forearms.)

    (Wide shot of Calleigh watching Horatio.)

    Cut to:
    (Calleigh closing her eyes, smiling.)

    Calleigh: I remember when I fell asleep
    in the lab... you watched over me.

    Cut to:
    (Horatio moving a little, as he turns his head
    the other way.)

    Calleigh: Time I returned the favour...

    (A pause as she sighs.)
    Oh, Horatio...

    Cut to:
    (Shot of her hand reaching across the desk
    Camera shot of her hand moving towards him.)

    Calleigh: So near... and yet so far...

    (After a few minutes, Calleigh's eyes nearly
    fall closed too.

    She gets up.
    Camera pans to the right following her.

    She kneels right next to Horatio.)

    Cut to:
    (Front shot of them.
    Calleigh lightly puts her hand on his shoulder.)

    Calleigh: No matter what, Horatio, I'll always
    be here for you. I'll never give up on you...
    You... you are my life...
    (She looks down for a momnet.)
    I will tell you someday how I feel... but
    until then... in my dreams, I belong to you.
    (A beat.)

    (Camera pans in on them, as Calleigh leans
    in and kisses the top of Horatio's head.
    He mumbles quietly.)

    Cu to:
    (Wide shot of them.)

    Cut to:
    (Close-up of them, as Calleigh lifts her head
    away from him.)

    Calleigh: Sleep well, Horatio.

    (She gets up quietly, tip-toeing away.

    Taking one last look over her shoulder, she's
    about to leave when she hears his voice.
    She freezes.)

    Horatio: Cal... Calleigh?

    Cut to:
    (Calleigh slowly turning around.)

    Cut to:
    (Horatio sitting up, stretching slightly, giving
    a small yawn.)

    Horatio: Calleigh? When...
    Calleigh: I'm really sorry I woke you.
    Horatio: No, you didn't, it's okay...

    (He looks at his watch. His eyes widen
    in alarm.)

    Horatio: I've been asleep... oh God.
    (He looks to Calleigh.)
    Calleigh, I don't know what happened.

    Cut to:
    (Calleigh walking towards him.)

    Calleigh: Everyone needs rest sometimes...
    even you, Horatio Caine.

    Cut to:
    (Horatio chuckling.

    Calleigh sits on the desk on his right.)

    Calleigh:(hesistating) Um... how'd you
    know I was here?

    (Horatio looks up in surprise, but quickly
    ducks his head again.)

    Horatio: Umm... this'll sound strange but...
    uh... I recognised your perfume.

    (Calleigh bites her lip shyly, tucking her
    hair behind her ears.)

    Calleigh: Did you now?
    Horatio: Yes... I did

    (They laugh.)

    Camera focuses in on Calleigh,
    who then turns concerned.)

    Calleigh: Horatio, are you okay now?
    You ought to rest...

    (Horatio nods.)
    Horatio: I'm fine now... just needed to
    rest my eyes. I won't be much longer.

    (Calleigh nods, though still a little

    Horatio: Really, it's okay!

    (Calleigh smiles.)

    Calleigh: Okay... just promise me that
    I won't find you crashing here in the
    Horatio: I promise...

    Calleigh: You really promise?
    Horatio: I really promise.

    Calleigh: Cross your heart?
    Horatio:(crosses his heart)
    Cross my heart.

    Calleigh: Hope to die?
    (Horatio pauses.)
    Horatio: Well... that's kinda literal in this job...

    (Calleigh laughs.)

    Alright... hope to die.

    Calleigh: Stick a ballpoint in your eye?
    (Horatio grins.)
    Horatio: Stick a ballpoint in my eye... ow!!

    (They laugh again.)

    Calleigh: I'm finished here, I left my report
    (She points to the "IN" tray.)
    So I'm turning in. See you in the morning,

    Horatio: Night, Calleigh.

    (Camera follows her as
    she walks to the door.
    She lifts her shoulders, and turns back
    to look at him over her shoulder.)

    Calleigh: What do you want in your coffee?

    Cut to:
    (Horatio smiling charmingly, dipping his head.)

    Horatio: Sugar?

    Cut to:
    (Calleigh laughing, giving one last look before
