A/N: Now, I know that I am taking a break from my IT stories for a while, but I came up with a brand new idea. I am coming to a new fandom and I will eventually get back to my other stories later. So, DON'T WORRY! My IT stories will return sooner or later, and I am NOT abandoning them! I know this is a difficult time for me right now, but I'm pushing through my grief and doing something different!

So, this is a Scream story! The first movie is in my top five of all time, and I will do my best to be very faithful to the franchise as well as adding original scenes. The ONLY movie that I won't cover is the third one, mostly because it SUCKS! I will tie Scream 3 to the second story in some way and still have it exist in this universe, because I, at least, RESPECT the movie... as much as I hate it.

So, I hope you guys enjoy this story, which will cover the first story but with three original characters.

Now, enough rambling! On with the overview, plot, and cast of Certain Rules to Survive!


Director: Wes Craven

Writer: Hermione Romanoff

Based off of the Screenplay by: Kevin Williamson

Music Composer: Marco Beltrami

Genre: Horror, Slasher, Drama, Hurt/Comfort

Tagline: Horror movie knowledge doesn't always save you...

Extended Plot Summary: Amanda Orth was the most ordinary of ordinary girls in Woodsboro, California. She loved to stay out of the spotlight and never tried to be popular. The only reason that people turned their heads around her was that her older brother, Steve, was the jock of the school. But she never cared about that, and she ignored it.

Other than that, Amanda had a very good life, despite the horrific murder of her best friend's mother the year prior. She often helped Sidney through the tragic event and things were starting to get back to how they were before.

But when a new sleuth of murders begin, Amanda starts fearing not for her life, but for the ones of her friends and especially Sidney. But it should be okay, because the young girl knows all of the rules of horror films, making her very close friends with Randy Meeks.

Amanda will then learn that horror movie knowledge doesn't always save you.
