Daytime Confidential is pleased to announce the launch of SavetheQuartermaines.com, the official headquarters of our campaign to save the Quartermaine family on General Hospital!

300x250

For over thirty years and four generations they have graced us with their comedy, wit, under handed schemes trying to one up each other, blackmail each other, and defend each other against outside forces. With each new generation, the Quartermaine family has re-endeared itself to General Hospital fans. Even their servants have become fan favorites.

Today, however, the once illustrious Quartermaine family is on the brink of extinction.

Where is Alan? Dead and on Recurring. Where is Ned? Gone. Where is Dillon? Gone. Where is Brooklyn? Gone. Where is Lois? Gone. Where is Emily? Dead. Where is Aj? Dead. Where is Justice? Dead. And where are their extended family members such as Lucy Coe or Georgie Jones Quartermaine? Gone and Dead respectively. Where is Jason? Gone. Where is grandson Michael? It's as if his family doesn't even exist.

For the last three or more years the Quartermaine mansion has played home, not so much to the Quartermaine family itself so much as to Luke Spencer and his daughter Lulu. And while this, on the face of it, has been entertaining to watch it has also helped the executives at General Hospital hide the fact that the only Quartermaine family members that remain on our screens and in the Quartermaine mansion are Edward, Monica, and Tracey.

Today General Hospital has no younger generation of Quartermaine.

With the murder of Emily Quartermaine General Hospital killed off the last of the fourth generation of Quartermaines who recognize that they are quartermaines. Sure Jason is still around but he hasn't had anything to do with the Quartermaine family other than to show up for funerals after yet another Quartermaine is killed off. What of Jason's son Jake? Will this Quartermaine heir ever know of his heritage? Which leads us to Michael Corinthos Jr. aka Mini Mobster. The son of AJ Quartermaine, stolen from his father and raised in the home of a criminal. Will this Quartermaine son ever reunite with the family he has been kept from? It's hard to say.

It is because of this, the destruction of the Quartermaines that we launched SavetheQuartermaines.com. 

We want to provide a home for the campaign to save this amazing family. There have been a lot of scattered attempts by fans to bring back the Quartermaine family or to save a single character. It is time, however, that we as fans unite our separate attempts into one campaign.

This is literally one for all and all for one. If you are sending postcards to support one Quartermaine actor than we would encourage you to send postcards for all of them. Not just your personal favorite. The only way that we will have an impact is if everyone works together and we bring the varied fanbases together.

Here is what we're doing.

Send Letters: Snail Mail is the most important form of support that you can give to the actors and actresses who portray one of the Quartermaine family members. We would encourage General Hospital fans to sends a post card for each actor who portrays a Quartermaine family member, not just your favorite Quartermaine actor.  We've included the address  (see below) to all the current actors on the show so that you can show your support.

Sign the Petition: Online petitions do not have as much of an impact as snail mail letters but it can have a rallying affect on those who participate. Be sure to sign our Save the Quartermaine Petition after or before you send in your post cards.

Contest: As part of the campaign to Save the Quartermaines Daytime Confidential is running a Save the Quartermaine Storyline Contest. The winner of the contest will win a guest appearance on the Daytime Confidential Podcast to talk about the storyline they submitted on how they would save the Quartermaine family. Be sure to check out the contest page for details.

Banners: We have created Save the Quartermaine, Save Port Charles Banners that you can use on your own website, MySpace profile, Facebook page or MSN or Yahoo Group. Our only request is that you save them to your computer. Please do not link directly to them.

Quartermaine Memory Lane: As part of our efforts to encourage General Hospital's newer viewers to fall in love with the Quartermaine family we have set up Quartermaine Memory Lane, a page with some great clips of the Quartermaine family.

The Complete Quartermaine History: Daytime Confidential Staff Writer Belinda The Complete Quartermaine History has written an enlightening and entertaining guide/refresher for General Hospital fans who want to brush up on their Quartermaine history or learn something new about General Hospital's first family. We encourage you to check it out.

Write General Hospital!

It is time we the fans do something to save this beloved family from extinction. The single most important thing you can do is write to each of the remaining cast members who comprise the Quartermaine Family i.e. John Ingle (Edward), Leslie Charleson (Monica), and Jane Elliot (Tracy).  Even though Stuart Damon now portrays a ghost it is extremely important to write him as well.
