    Since there's been a lot of Encore talk in the Eminem thread recently and the rollout is moving at such a glacial pace, I figured I'd make another srsbsns stan fiction thread. So here's my reinterpretation of Encore, without attempting the lost errand of recreating whatever exactly Eminem had in mind before the Straight from the Lab leaks:



    Instead I put my own spin on the album using only 2003-2004 songs that I can still enjoy. While released in 2005, "When I'm Gone" was apparently recorded in early 2004. If true it seems likely that it was originally intended for Encore but didn't make the cut for whatever reason (maybe "Mockingbird" replaced it). If that's the case then it probably would have been the closing track instead of "Encore", since it ends with the sound of curtains closing. This may also explain why there's an official (original?) version of "Encore" with an instrumental ending instead of him shooting all the concertgoers -- whereas in "When I'm Gone" he kills Slim Shady instead. In any case this alternate ending is much more interesting imo, and would have made "My Darling" as the opener on Relapse the more appropriate, since Relapse would have picked up right where Encore left off ("But I already killed you!"). If Wiki is to be believed that "When I'm Gone" was written in late 2003, that would mean Eminem hatched the idea of officially killing off Shady over 20 years ago, maybe toying with it ever since. As Chaotic Progress would say, thas p crazy, son.

    Curtains Up (skit)
    Come Confront Me (Warrior Pt. 2 retitled)
    Rude Awakening (Never Enough retitled)
    Patiently Waiting
    We As Americans
    Git Up
    Paul (skit)
    Lady
    Em Calls Paul (skit)
    Canibitch
    Mockingbird
    Love You More
    6 in the Morning
    Bully
    Like Toy Soldiers
    Spend Some Time
    How Come
    We All Die One Day
    Second Thoughts (skit)
    Encore
    Hailie (skit)
    When I'm Gone (Curtains)

    Come Confront Me (Warrior Pt. 2) - solo
    Rude Awakening (Never Enough) - solo
    Patiently Waiting - Solo
    Git Up - solo
    Paul and Em Calls Paul skits - shortened
    Lady - solo (by EmSager)
    Like Toy Soldiers - raw hook
    Spend Some Time - solo
    We All Die One Day - solo

    Much of the ordering is deliberate and should be self-explanatory. I renamed the "Final Thought" skit to "Second Thoughts" since he decides to k--- his Shady alter ego instead of his audience. This makes at least superficial sense after "How Come" and "We All Die One Day": after contemplating death, he changes his mind about offing himself.

    I think you do a great job with these reimagined albums

    only thing that I’d reorder is “We All Die One Day” before “Like Toy Soldiers” since he walks away from the beef on that song and disses Benzino/The Source in WADOD

    You know I really don't give a f--- about you in the slightest whether you like me or not, and I don't really care to like or dislike you either,

    Ehhh I edited the insult out don't really have the time to back and forth with you with redundant comebacks firing from both ends.

    It's kinda nice seeing you actually post about music instead of being a try hard keyboard warrior

    Most regulars here have each written tens of thousands of words about Eminem over the years, in many cases up to the length of a typical novel I reckon. This would absolutely include you Tonshor, so you're one to talk about glass houses.

    As for @Gimp, it doesn't get more pathetic than becoming zebedee's personal gimp just to get back at little ol' me. You know, the guy who started the whole trend of making fun of your freakish, deformed lips LOL. My god man, have some dignity. He's not actually your friend now just because he liked a few of your posts to spite me, you do realize that?

    Regular users don't spend hours making Youtube videos about a grown man they never met.

    Btw how old did you say you were? 40? At least you still look 14.

    Right but they spend years of their lives discussing his career and the same songs and albums over and over again on a message board? :S

    The real difference between us here is that I'm actually passionate about the music and don't just pretend to be to meet my daily likes quota. "Soldier is so amazing man I'd do anything to be able to listen to it again for the first time!!!" "Bruh it just hit me sftm is the best song ever made, such a masterpiece!!!" Then when someone literally breathes new life into the songs it's "HAHA WHAT A LOSER". You're full of s---.

    Look at this DM from @BIG MONKEY when I manipulated him into thinking I was his friend, all because I liked one of his posts :laff:

    He begged me to team up for him for some weird a--- Eminem Diss, then asked me to be the first person to reply his lame a--- thread when I said no

    Lmao loooooseer
