The only thing I can tell you now is that one of the eggs Bill was destroying (it's been a while since I have read this part, hope I got it right) survived; Bill simply missed it. It eventually hatches and gives birth to a young It. After growing up a bit (which is fast, since time is different for the thing) it makes its debut in Derry on Halloween, falls in with a group of trick-or-treaters. It's dressed as a clown (or maybe something else, who knows). Eventually, it takes out all the trick-or-treaters it is with and goes to one final, isolated home and knocks on the door. A family is inside. It feeds.

That would be the prologue. The rest? I just don't know. I will say that there would be interlude parts, but instead of being the history of Derry, it is the history of It...as well as dispatches from the future of It. I'd also say the sequel should not be as long, or soap operatic (although having the children of the Losers fight the second It might be symmetrically satisfying).
Not bad, but
it's Ben who squished all the eggs while Bill squished It's heart. Richie gets kinda sqooshed under the dying It and then rag dolled.

I'm thinking more a movie sequel. Since the Turtle is Pennywise's natural enemy, Flo & Eddie could be the heroes of the saga. Has there been a SK comedy made yet? Give it the Bill and Ted treatment. Pick characters (and the actors who played them) from other SK works to help in an epic adventure to defeat It. And make it a musical while we're at it. :)
:rofl:Gotta agree with Rick! It's so terrible it's good!

LOL. Might? Want to place a bet on it? 2021 will turn into 2024, then into 2027... :)

Don't count on it. ;-D The only reason I'm extending beyond 2018 is because I decided I can't live without remodeling my garage into a craft studio and having a new garage built this year so will need the extra time/money to pay off the equity loan. I should have that and my mortgage on my Maine home paid at the end of 2020 so I'll be staying longer than I need to as it is. It would have to be a very good offer but he won't need a PA for as long as we both live (hopefully) either so that's in the mix. ;)

OMG. So you're saying Stephen King is retiring after 2021? ;)

Sung to ‘Happy Together

Imagine me and you, and all the crew
We think about IT day and night, IT's only fright
We think about the kids he’s killed and those dead lights
We must be aggressors...
:)
I took a break from reading ch21 "Under the City", as the kids are hearing something happen to Henry and his gang... for this???

:clap:

I can't see me killin nobody but you,
For all the night!
When your near me kiddies the sewers will be grume up to my thighs!
Heh, this isn't really my skill set. Anyone else feel like working over The Turtles most famous hit for IT?

He may not need you, but where would we be? Go mad and to a bit more to the house!
