Hey Greg,

Just curious, any chance you'll ever be able to put up an MP3 of The Will to Love, from W.I.T.C.H. Season 02? From what I've heard there's a full version that was written and recorded, but only the first verse/chorus was ever heard in the show.

Greg responds...

There is a full version, but I don't know how to put it on line. And I'm not even sure if I have a copy.

Is it just me or are there eire simularities between charecters of Gargoyles and charecters of different shows?
Ex:
Oberon/Inu no Taisho(Inu Yasha's father)
Owen/Cedric(W.I.T.C.H)(Owen just has shorter hair though)
And Puck/Yue(Card Captor Sakura)
It's really quite freaky.

Greg responds...

If you say so.

I'm unfamilar with Inu Yasha's father and Card Captor Sakura. And although I worked on both Owen and Cedric, I helped create the former and didn't have anything to do with the creation of the latter. I suppose I can see some passing similarities, but they don't seem much alike to me.

So is anything going to happen with Lilian? Are Nigel and Eric going to find out about W.I.T.C.H.? Is there going to be a season three? Please answer these questions for me. W.I.T.C.H. was my altime favorite series of books and when they came out with the series I was so exited, but I was left hanging at the end of the second season.

Greg responds...

I'm sorry... we were ALL left hanging. But no, to my knowledge there are no plans to make a third season. So your best bet to find out what happens to Lilian, Nigel and Eric are to check out the comics.

Hello Greg. First of all I must apoligize for my horrible english. Im russian, you see, and though I can read and speak english, Im prety bad at typing.
My question - its about W.I.T.C.H., and specifically about some songs in season two. In episode "S is for Self" there were two cool songs "The demon in me" and "Will to love". I realy love these songs, and I have search all over the internet for them. So far I have only found rips from the toon, and I was lucky enough to find full texts of them. After I read full texts I love these songs even more, but I cant full mp3 versions of them anywhere at all. I heard you was author of these lyrics, so I thought you can help me find full version of these two exelent songs.
Please excuse me if my question was already answered - I didnt dint find it, using search and FAQ.. And sorry, if that was dumb thing to ask.

Greg responds...

I wrote "Will to Love" but "The Demon in Me" was written by my brother Jon Weisman.

Here are the lyrics for all the songs in that episode:

W.I.T.C.H.
"S is for Self"
(Song Lyrics for #219)
W: Jon Weisman & Greg Weisman

"The Demon in Me"
(Lyrics by Jon Weisman)
Performed by Wreck-55
Matt - Lead Singer, Guitar
Nigel - Base
Pedro - Keyboards
Joel - Drums

1. (Verse 1)
Didn't know why I couldn't fly
Didn't want to be stuck on the ground
I wanted to soar 'cross the sky
But something was holding me down

2.
What had me cower in fear?
What was it I couldn't see?
The answer near, but so unclear
I was fighting the demon in me

3. (Chorus 1)
The demon in me
The demon in me
The battle weird, over all that I feared
I was fighting the demon in me

4. (Verse 2)
He fell on me when I was weak
Made me feel so lazy and dumb
He talked to me deep in my sleep
My mind and my soul overcome

5.
I started to just let him win
I decided to just let it be
It was up to me not to give in
I was trapped by the demon in me

6. (Chorus 2)
The demon in me
The demon in me
My head in a spin, my strength wearing thin
I was trapped by the demon in me

7. (Verse 3 - quieter)
Asked myself, what did I want?
Kick back or just go for broke?
My dreams continued to haunt
I'd get close - then the demon said choke

8. (building guitar)
Somehow you gotta step up
Stop buying excuses for free
So I went face-to-face, laid claim to my space
And rocked the demon…

9. (Chorus 3 - full blast)
The demon in me
The demon in me
I recovered my spark, got free of the dark
And I rocked the demon in me
The demon in me
I rocked the demon in me…

"I'm Somebody Too"
(Lyrics by Jon Weisman)
Performed by Alchemy & the Grumpers
Alchemy - Lead Singer, Guitar
Bess - Drums
Courtney - Base

1. (Verse 1)
Oooooh, yeah…
You think all I do
Is pay attention to you
Sure it's true I care
But you're so unaware

2.
I build up myself
More than just my health… Yeah!
I like what I see
I glory in me

3. (Chorus 1)
Hear what I say
Be you I pray
But it's 'bout time you knew
That I'm somebody too

4.
Hear what I say
Be you I pray
But it's 'bout time you knew
I'm somebody too

5. (Verse 2)
Y'all have your story
So sweet or so gory
Whether dull or bling bling
I'm sure it's fascinating

6.
But talk ain't so cheap
When you sow but don't reap
I bloom like the lotus
And you're gonna notice

7. (Chorus 2)
Hear what I say
Be you I pray
But it's 'bout time you knew
I'm somebody too

8.
Hear what I say
Be you I pray
But it's 'bout time you knew
I'm somebody too

9. (Bridge)
Anyone can be a critic
But doncha be so
Narci-
Narcissistic

10. (Chorus 3)
Hear what I say
Be you I pray
But it's 'bout time you knew
That I'm somebody too

11.
Hear what I say
Be you I pray
But it's 'bout time you knew
That I'm somebody too

"The Itsy Bitsy Spider"
(Lyrics adapted by Greg Weisman)
Performed by The Dunnsters
Uriah - Lead Singer, Guitar
Eric - Saxophone
Kurt - Drums
Clubber - Tambourine

1.
The Itsy Bitsy Spider climbed up the waterspout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
And the Itsy Bitsy Spider climbed up the spout again.

2.
Oh, that Itsy Bitsy Spider… he was really small.
He climbed that spout… so that he could feel… tall.
Down came that rain… dude, it was really… wet.
And that spider thought that climb was something to… regret.
Yeah.

3.
He was washed away… washed away… washed away…
He was washed away… washed away… washed away…
He was washed away… washed away… washed away…

4.
But the sun came out and put a hurtin' on the rain.
The spider was cool. Dry and feelin' no pain.
So dude, be like Spider and take it to that spout.
Climb again, cause, babe, climbin's what it's all about.

5.
And don't get washed away… washed away… washed away…
Don't get washed away… washed away… washed away…
Don't get washed away… washed away… washed away…

6.
ITSY BITSY SPIDER!!!!!

"The Will to Love"
(Lyrics by Greg Weisman)
Performed by Wreck-55
Matt - Lead Singer, Guitar
Nigel - Base
Pedro - Keyboards
Joel - Drums

1.
So many strangers on the street.
Yeah, nearly everyone you meet.
Can't relate, can't translate, can't create
A connection. No.

2.
Easier to keep your distance.
Tread the path of least resistance.
Don't engage, keep to your cage, stay offstage
For protection.

3.
Then everything changes.
She's there. Life rearranges.
Wingéd angel from above…
Helped me find the Will… the Will to love…
The Will to love… The Will to love…

4.
I figured I'd stay on the shelf.
Truth be told, didn't trust myself:
Always fade, don't make the grade, too afraid
Of rejection. Oh…

5.
I didn't think I had the strength
To find a girl on my wavelength.
Just a runt, always punt. No will to hunt
For perfection.

6.
Then everything changes.
She's there. Life rearranges.
Wingéd angel from above…
Helped me find the Will… the Will to love…
The Will to love… The Will to love…

7.
Game's full of surprises.
Live our share of compromises.
Still when push comes to shove…
She's just the Will to love.
She's just the Will to love.
I found the Will to love.

8.
And everything changes.
She's here. Life rearranges.
Wingéd angel from above…
She is just the Will… the Will to love.
The Will to love… The Will to love… Oh…
The Will to love…
The Will to love… The Will to love… Oh…
The Will to love…

I was just wondering, if there was a Season 3 of W.I.T.C.H., what it would be about? I am also wondering about the end of W.I.T.C.H. Season 2. I was wondering who the new professor was at the end of "Z is for Zenith". Thanks for your help!

Greg responds...

1. A lot. Too much to go into here. I also won't pretend that all my ideas were fully formed, but I had a LOT of ideas.

2. He's the new computer teacher at the girls' school. But if you read the comics, you'll know he's much more than that...

While working on season 2 of W.I.T.C.H., did you ever think about doing a croosover with Gargoyles? I know it wouldn't have been one of the most logical crossovers, but it still would have been nice to see Gargoyles on the small screen again.

Greg responds...

Well, that just wasn't a practical idea, given the legal set up of the show... and yet...

There's a character called Gargoyle in WITCH. And I created two new characters, Brenda & Marco, who bear more than a passsing resemblence to a certain A.D.A. and her husband.

Just writing to let you know that at least one Gargoyles fan watched the second season of W.I.T.C.H. I have to say I very much enjoyed my little fan-girl laugh in "I is for Illusion" when one of the girls asked "How do we beat up a beach?" The season as a whole was very well done, even more so when compared to the first. The first season was largely a march toward the inevitable. I mean really, who didn't know that sooner or later Elyon would wise up, and Phobos would be defeated? The second season had many more interesting twists and turns. The character development was also fun to see. With such things as the Matt/Shagon situation and the revealing of Lillian as the Heart of Earth, the relationships were much more dynamic. I also loved the choice to make Nerissa Caleb's mother. Since Caleb has no parents in the comic you were free to make his mother whoever you wanted to, and it just fits Nerissa so well. I mean, in her own twisted way, she was working toward the greater good, at least in her mind, and it just makes sense that someone like that would conceive a child just so that child could led a rebellion. I have to admit I didn't think much about the character Gargoyle other than to think that it was strange to go from the clan to this wingless creature roughly the size of a tool shed that didn't speak. In short, great job to everyone who made the season so great, and I hope to see more.

Greg responds...

Thanks! I am exceedingly proud of the work we did on WITCH. I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I'm glad at least a few Gargoyles fans checked it out ...and caught all the in-jokes. (I'm still surprised that I didn't hear more hoots (of pleasure or derision) over Brenda and Marco.

Hey! For a long time now I've wanted to write and tell you how much I loved the 2nd season of WITCH. That show is great! I started watching it when I heard that you were working on the show. I figured if you could make Gargoyles great, WITCH had to be near its equal. The first season was good. It was interesting enough for me to want to continue watching it. I'm glad I did because you all did an awesome job on the 2nd season.

It's been a while since I've seen the show (I've seen them all), but I have to say that I loved how you put the characters Marco and Brenda (referring to Margot and Brendan) in the episode where Cornelia's sister gets her powers. I'm sure all Gargoyle fans appreciated that one. I also liked how some of the bad guys in the middle of the season (I forget their names) looked like gargoyles. I am referring to their wings and tails. One was an ice guy and the other was a fire girl (I remember the girl reminded me of Hyena).

And you can't forget Matt turning into Shagon. That was pleasantly unexpected. What was better was when he went good again and regained his power. Matt's got to be my favorite character. He really has a better story to him this time around. He wasn't a big character in the first season and I'm glad he grew to a regular character seen in the 2nd season. Plus, I really like the guy who plays his voice. He does a lot of character voices and it is easy to point out his voice because it sounds different than others. He is very talented.

I also liked the fact that you gave Will some power in this season. I used to make fun of her in the first season because all she could do was fly around and create portals (and that power didn't come until the end of the 1st season). I also like that the other guardians have new powers too, though I still like their original powers the best. I also love the fact that you find out that each guardian was chosen for a reason. For example, Hay Lin was chosen because of her connection to her grandma being in the guardian generation before them. Also, Cornelia was chosen to help protect the heart of earth, which is her sister. I have no idea why the other three were chosen, and I can't wait to find out.

Well, here's hoping you continue with WITCH and that the next season is just as good if not better than the last one. You've done a wonderful job with this show just as you did with Gargoyles. Keep it going!

Thank you for your time.

-Charisma82

Greg responds...

Ember (the "fire girl") probably reminded you of Hyena because Cree Summer voiced both roles. Tridart (the "ice guy") was voiced by Jim Cummings, the voice of Dingo. Matt/Shagon was played by the amazing Jason Marsden.

I am surprised that more Garg fans didn't notice Brenda and Marco -- one of the things that made me think that most garg fans weren't watching the show. Heck, there's a character in WITCH called Gargoyle. I'm surprised that didn't get any comments.

I'm afraid I won't be doing a season three though. The show wasn't picked up.

I wanted to take the opportunity now that the second season of W.I.T.C.H. is finished to give my thanks and comments about the season. I've got to say that this season, in my opinion, was vastly better than the first. While I enjoyed it the first season, I eventually started watching it just out of obligation, namely to see how long before Elyon got her act together. Not so with this season. I looked forward to each episode. The writing and characterizations for the second season seems so much more focused and consistent, and the plot more forward. I especially loved the Will-Shagon/Matt dynamic of the first half or so. (The "I'm so bad, I hate myself" quote stands out). And the last six were the most fun for me, especially "U for Undivided". I still smile when I think of Ed Asner as cute little Napoleon's voice. There are so many things in each episode, I can't possibly list them all.

Hopefully, by the time you get to this we'll know if season three is greenlit. But, just to let you and the rest of the W.I.T.C.H. staff know, thanks so much for such a fun season.

Greg responds...

Thank you. It is much appreciated. I was extremely proud of the work we did on WITCH in Season Two. Wasn't sure that anyone was watching.
