8) My Notes
Name - Maddie.
Age - The dancing lawyer in my head says not to disclose that. He is soon pushed out through one of my ears by Martin and Joe, my voices.
Height - At least 5'6", so HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA to all of my altitude-challenged friends out there! Just kidding, short people are cool, too. Martin and Joe are short...
Martin: I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO KEEP THAT SECRET!
Maddie: Cottage cheese.
Martin: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! SO... MOLDY!
Maddie: Hey, Joe, is that my wallet?
:Joe looks in the wallet:
Joe: WHY IS THERE ONLY A TWO DOLLAR BILL AND SOME ICEE COUPONS IN HERE?
Maddie: I bet $18 away.
Martin: WHAAAAT??? WHY WEREN'T WE INFORMED OF THIS???
:Martin smacks Maddie:
Joe: Now, Martin, that's inhumane. Maddie's just your average psychopath. You can't blame her for having an inability to bet.
Martin: That's true... But we need to keep her away from the Craps table. She is actually good at that!
:Runs over to Craps table:
Maddie: Come on, I need to buy a new watch!
Martin: OH NO YOU DON'T!
Joe: That's right! YOU WILL SAVE THE $130 THAT YOU STILL DO HAVE! MONEY IS GOOD! NEVER, EVER SPEND IT!
:Joe goes off to hide wallet:
Weight - I would rather not say... You know... Martin and Joe might get embarassed...
Martin: No, we wouldn't.
Maddie: Shut up.
Joe: Yeah, it's time you told people!
Maddie: NO! SHUT UP, SHUT UP, SHUT UP!
Things You Should Know About Me - I am the true Pokemon Master, and I will stop at nothing until I catch 'em all! I DO NOT LOOK LIKE A JIGGLYPUFF! Also, I LOVE THE RAIN! LLUEVE! IT'S PRONOUNCED LIKE A J, KNUMBSKULL! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA! I like the words savvy and fiddlesticks. I love my old school Nintendo and could play Banjo-Tooie all day long. And yes, I do like mangas and anime. Forgive me, all people who do not like it, but that's the way I am. I'm myself. I'M GETTING MY BRACES OFF IN NOVEMBER! And, OH YEAH! My favorite phrase is: "Well, bust my britches and call me streaker." I also am insane. Can't you tell?
My Team - THE BOSTON RED SOX! WHO CARES IF I DON'T LIVE IN NEW ENGLAND? I BELONG TO THE RED SOX NATION! And the Chicago Cubs are okay, too. It's just that I think that the Red Sox are BETTER!
My Instruments - Trumpet (which ROCKS, but hurts the lips if you play with braces and without wax), piano (the break from trumpet when your lips hurt too much), and singing (so people look at you, shocked, like they can't believe that's you singing. So what? Wait, that's a GOOD sign, right?).
Favorite Artists - Where should I start? Maybe I should number these...
3)Simon and Garfunkel
4)Ummm... Simon and Garfunkel?
5)SOME Eminem (*gasp* that's not Simon and Garfunkel!)
6)SIR Elton John
11)Basically anyone on Mob Hits...
12)Wynton Marsalis (Okay, he doesn't sing, but have you heard him PLAY?!)
14)The Everly Brothers (THEY INSPIRED SIMON AND GARFUNKEL! WHO WOULDN'T LOVE THEM?)
15)The Neville Brothers (The world is full of brothers that you could just love. Get out and find some)
19)Stephen Speaks (So I've only heard one of his songs. Sue me.)
20)Bonnie Rait (The song "Love Sneakin' Up On You". Good song.)
21)Peter Gabriel (The song "In Your Eyes". It's beautiful.)
22)Brad Paisley (I know, I like country now. Blame CMT and my sister.)
23)Alison Krauss (Have you ever heard Whiskey Lullaby????)
I will probably think of more that my lazy mind can't comprehend. Oh well. This is the curse of being the laziest creature in, well, not in my grade, there are worse, umm, well, in my house, umm, no, wait, my dad, uh, well, I'm lazy, we'll just leave it at that.
Favorite Movies - Building with time.
1) MOULIN ROUGE
2) The Stepford Wives
3) The Harry Potter Movies (especially PoA, Daniel Radcliffe is so... :drools: HE HAS DARK HAIR! Erm, see below. Not the food. Below that.)
4) Finding Nemo
5) Monster's Inc.
6) Milo & Otis (I'm sorry, I'm a sucker for those kinds of movies where you feel sad for the pet. Otis being trapped in a hole is so... SAD! :cries: WAAAAAAAAAAAH!)
7) O Brother, Where Art Thou (Who made you the leader of this outfit? Well, Pete, I assumed it would be the one with the capacity for abstract thought... I'm voting for yours truly! Well, I'm voting for yours truly, too! Okay, I'm with you fellas.)
8) The South Park Movie (YAAAAAY! I FINALLY GOT TO SEE WHAT KENNY LOOKED LIKE! Besides, I spent the time watching it with three totally hot guys -- plus my godbrother and this guy I've known since I was born who is a total jerk and doesn't know who Ronald Raegan is... )
9) Pirates of the Caribbean (For all that they're so MEAN to Commadore Norrington, they have good music. IT'S FUN TO PLAY THE MEDALLION CALLS! MY SOLO! MINE! NOT SARAH'S!)
10) O Brother, Where Art Thou? (Who made you the leader of this outfit? Well, Pete, I thought it would be the one with the capacity for abstract thought...)
11) The Emperor's New Groove (KRONK WILL LIVE FOREVER! GO SHOULDER ANGEL! That's Martin. Joe's the devil. He threatens me when I listen to Martin and spend my money. But that sounds kinda devillish for Martin, so... They're both shoulder devils? That's a thinker.)
To be continued once I think of things!
Favorite Foods - ANOTHER LIST! YAY!
3)Pasta (what can I say? It's the curse of being Italian, even a little)
6)Bread (The previous four I could LIVE off of. It's all so perfect, just don't trust a buffet to make perfect pasta for you. Leave it to the professionals at any Italian restaurant to make it al dente )
7)Red Meat (HEAR ME WOLF DOWN STEAK! My sister says it's unlady-like, but since when do I listen to my sister's food tips? She doesn't even touch the red part of a steak. All right, sue me, I'm a carnivore...)
Another list I'll just have to add to, just not right now, I don't wanna. ME LAZY! I don't know how my bio GOT so long, anyway. I guess it's from the random times when I feel like updating it, and then I, well, yeah, I have no life, so I update it...
Favorite Mangas - I just got into mangas and now they're all I think about! If you have any suggestions on a manga I should read, IM me, or review me, but READ MY STORY BEFORE YOU REVIEW!
1) Fushigi Yuugi
2) Boys over Flowers (Forgive me, but I'm a big fan of Domyoji. "The weed has jilted!" I'm rooting for him and Tsukushi. SHE WAS SO MEAN TO HIM! DO NOT GO FOR RUI -- which is pronounced like "Louie", by the way, thanks, Juli!)
3) Marmalade Boy (Mustard girl! Go GINTA! NO YUU! I'm a Ginta/Miki shipper. Sue me. For countless things on this bio. GINTA FOREVER!)
Again, I'm a starter (in LOVE with them already), so recommend stuff I might not think confusing. I mean, not too confusing. Come on, I understand two pairs of parents switching partners and their kids falling in love, I understand a girl getting sucked into a book and having to find people to protect the country from war while trying to make up with her best friend and not worrying about entrance exams... So what won't I understand?
In My Opinion, Good-Looking Guys Have... -
1) Pouty lips
3) Long Hair
4) Dark Hair
5) Light Eyes
6) Straight teeth
7) Nice abs
8) Muscular Arms
9) Broad Chest
10) A Sense of Humor
11) They don't have this, this is just a personality trait, but SHYNESS! YEAH! I like a challenge. They're so hot if they're shy.
12) A love for games (MUST INCLUDE: Video games, board games, and card/casino games.) Forgive me. I love video games, and I love to kick back with a bunch of hot guys who can compete against me in Super Smash Bros.
PLEASE let it be a combo of more than one! My crush out there (who lives an hour away from me, oy!) has TEN of them... Top that, boys.
Ummm, can't think of other stuffs. Other stuffs will follow when I think of them. Meanwhile, continue with the bio.
About Each Story:
I needed to do this. Sometimes I miss stuff in the summary or I can't write anymore because there's no more room. Plus, sometimes I don't want to give away the story. I don't know, I mean I just want everyone to review EVERY SINGLE STORY! But NOOOOOO, everyone (with the exception of Juli and Lady Meriadoc) just sticks to one story! Well now you will know more about these stories. HERE!
The Jock and the Bookworm - Inspired by this one song "Someday She'll Love Me" on The Emperor's New Groove Soundtrack. It was never worked into the movie, and I had such a great idea for it. Listen to it, and imagine the song being sung by Brian and Alyssa. Except when I pictured it, I imagined Brian on the cliff and Alyssa watching from camp. That goes to show you, things can really turn around sometimes. I just sounded like the corniest person on Earth, but then again... Never mind...
How Safe Are You? - Got it from a writing class I took at College of -- --. Whoops, you almost caught me giving away personal information! *Gasp, Dun dun dunnnnnn!* Mystery. Don't let the summary fool you. It's not just some drama story about each little thing that happens, nothing big, but kind of like a soap opera. IT'S NOT!!! It's mainly about Ashley Warrington's murder, the whole school's in an uproar, and it was someone from the school who did it. You don't know how safe you are when the murderer is in the building with you, or maybe even walking alongside you on your way to class... You just don't know...
Somewhere They Can't Find Me - Okay, a guy is framed for robbing a liquor store, but before he can find the real person who framed him, he's caught. His wife believes he did it, but his son has faith. And now his son must search for the criminal before he strikes again... Inspired by Simon and Garfunkel's song: Somewhere They Can't Find Me, which comes from Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. (Possibly one of the best albums ever...) Yes, it is a copyright infringement, Juli, just tell me what that IS! Most likely going to be deleted very soon. Lost interest VERY quickly...
The Eternal Plan - A contest entry that didn't win, probably because it lacked too many details... Ah well, I got an honorable mention... Anyway, this guy doesn't want to die and leave his family behind, so he makes himself immortal, but he doesn't think that his family might leave HIM behind. Kinda sad, my mom thinks it's kinda freaky at the end...
The Cub - I didn't realize until AFTER I wrote it that it kind of resembles Ben Mikealsen's (is that how you spell it?) book, ummm, I can't think of the title, Saving something... I'll remember later, I know I will... I most likely won't be updating this soon, I don't know where I'm going with it, and I can't think up the details for the next chapter. Other stories to finish (and start!)!
The Beginning of the End - Yes, yes, at the time it reminded me of TA Maxwell's "The End", but now I don't really see the connection much. I'll keep it up for the sake of having more reviews (or flames, which is probably what I'm going to get if many more people read this...), or maybe because I'm sentimental and I want to let out the word that if you are unkind to others (no matter how small), you will be unkind to yourself. Boys might be boys, but when will they turn into MEN???
Still Laughing? - Allrighty, for some reason I've been writing songs a lot lately. So this one's a song about bullies who went too far.
Tales of A Life in the Jungle (More Commonly Known as My School) - My name is Rosi. You shouldn't want to know what it's short for. Really. You don't. And take one more look at the title above this paragraph, please. My school is a jungle. Every day a new species is found, and before you know it, a big scary jungle monster will gobble you up. You can't expect a life with the popular twits on your tail, a teacher who's got it in for you, a perfect older sister and a bratty little brother to be easy. Most likely will be updated one tale per chapter. This story's going to be the one I'm going to like working on, I can tell! I had to cut the title short because it wouldn't let me fit it all!
The Trials of Friendship - NOTICE THIS RIGHT HERE! HEEEEEEEEEEEERE! I've combined my stories Don't I Matter and How Do You Think It Feels? so now I've got one story that I will update. There will be five chapters, maybe six as the times go on, but right now I'm up to five.
Love Lifts Us Up Where We Belong - Love is a wonderful thing. Melanie had been plagued by knowing this and yet never experiencing it. Then someone comes into her life and teaches her how extraordinary love really is. Bad summary, but it is a story of my hopes and dreams. I'm putting myself on the line by vaguely disguising my crush, but still... If you are reading and you know who I and my crush are, I ask you not to tell. Tell who? Don't tell anyone. Unless you ask me. But still. Don't.
All That Is Unseen - Gwenn, despairing and purposeless, sank into obscurity since her parents died. No one could see her. No one, that is, until Alex Brians... I wrote this for a writing contest, until it took too long to write and I didn't enter it. It's too long for the word limit anyways (HOW COULD I WRITE SOMETHING THAT'S ONLY 750 WORDS??? HOW???). One entry only. Enjoy.
Against All Odds - So soon from a break-up with a serious boyfriend, Molly stumbles into a friend's party prepared not to have fun. But what she's not prepared for is meeting Sean. He is her exact opposite - he's a 16-year old rebel, she's heading into high school with rock-hard rep as a brain. But he can't take his eyes off her. While he stumbles over this new emotion, she stumbles into his arms. And what they found is much more powerful than any dissimilarity could be. What they found proved that despite all differences, against all odds, love will prevail. Forgive the crappy summary. It's inspired by Marty and the song "Out of My League" by Stephen Speaks.
Coming Soon To A Computer Near You:
~The Black Crystal Amulet~
Elizabeth is born into a lord's family and is expected to do what ladies do best: sew, marry, and bear offspring. Well, she won't have it. She doesn't WANT to marry a snobby rich man who's three times her age! She wants to be like her brothers before her. But as the only female of the clan, she must show that it turns out beautiful ladies as well as handsome men.
And then she hears about two forces created by the gods. Only one can destroy the other. It depends on the user what kind of powers it may have. It would do whatever the wielder desires. With one person it may be able to make the sick well. Another, it may protect in ways unknown to the living or the dead. But letting it fall into the wrong hands might be disasterous. Elizabeth disguises herself as street urchin Eli Rough to get to the force, but she faces many trials on the way. But who would have known that there would be trials when she got back?
Whoo! Lots of typing there! The real summary won't be that long. But I basically gave you the gist of it. Another writing class pays off. This time, it was something where we had to write down things about an object, crumple up the paper, get into a circle, and throw yours over your shoulder. Then pick up somebody else's and work it into your story. I originally thought that it would just be about getting the "force", (but by the title, you've probably guessed it was an amulet) but I decided not to make a sequel and just put it all into one story. First chapter will be up soon!
Ginny knew there was something strange about Camp Opportunity. She didn't know why she thought that. It just made her feel like she wasn't protected anymore. Vulnerable. And the feeling that, no matter how much they say that the days will pass quick and then they'll be packing the bus to go home, she was trapped there at Camp Opportunity. This definitely didn't feel like the opportunity it was supposed to be.
And all of a sudden, Ginny is alone. People around her are changing, FAST, and she has to determine who's on her side before her turn comes. And if she can't find anyone, she has to find a way to change her "mates" from camp back, before time's up. But to do that, Ginny must find strength, wisdom, courage, and a strong sense of self to achieve victory. This probably won't be hard, however. No, it will be worse. Much worse. And Ginny discovers something: more than anything, she needs help.
Dream inspired, better title is in the works, but not guaranteed. Main character's name subject to change according to my moods.
~The Nice Girl~
Renee is a nice girl. I mean, literally. She's, well, nice. She's polite to everyone and she helps out whenever she can. There's no other way to describe it.
But then, what happens when you're too nice? When even a smile can trick someone, and then cause them to ruin your life forever. And what's a nice girl to do then?
Crappy summary, it will DEFINITELY be PG-13 for swears and some icky stuff that I don't really want to describe. I'm not too fond of the name Renee, so I'll be changing that at one point or another.
~Eyes of the Phoenix~
Suzume has very faint memories of her father, and none of her mother. Brought up by her uncle, she discovers happenings from her past that open up a whole new world to her - a world of adventure, deceit, intrigue, danger, and love.
I really meant to write more in the summary, but I think that's a good thing to end it with and I really don't want to spoil the story. I know, if the story sounds good to you, I'm aggravating you (if it doesn't sound good to you, you don't care that I'm aggravating others), so be patient! I'm working on the first chapter!
Anthony's life is a waste. He dropped out of high school, he attacks random people on the street, half of the time he spends unconscious on his kitchen floor after drinking too much... When authorities finally get their hands on him, he is sentenced to work as an Emergency Medical Technician. He will soon find out that when lives are in your hands, you will find out that it cannot be wasted.
Kinda bad summary (yeah, yeah, yeah, what else is new?), so... I can't help you there. If you want to help me, pull Shakespeare out of time, and make him come to me and write summaries for me. Ayuda me.
~Life of a Courtesan~
Nina decided long ago that the word "love" was the name of a game that she could control. All she had to do was move the pieces around in her own way. But this game of love is about to turn on her, and she'll have to work around years of untrustworthiness to get to the one she loves.
I spent a long time researching the name. I finally came to Nina, which means "fire", "little girl", and "of the sea". I almost chose Medea, which means "cunning", and Maris, which is "star of the sea"... I wanted to find something that said "beautiful" and "deceitful", but it's HARD! Maybe by the time I post it, I will find a name. Will be rated for descriptive... erm... courtesanish scenes, some swearing, and... let's see... I forgot. Meh.
If you have any comments on these stories, or if you think that any are good-sounding, then tell me via reviews.
Personal Quotes/Favorite Sayings/Favorite Quotes from Things/I'll Shut up Now:
"When Sunny gets blue
Her eyes get gray and cloudy
Then the rain begins to fall
Love is gone, so what can matter?
No sweet lover man comes to call...
When Sunny gets blue
She breathes a sigh of sadness
Like the wind that stirs the trees
One that sets the leaves to swayin'
Like some violins are playin'
Weird and haunting melodies...
People used to love to hear her laugh, see her smile,
That's how she got her name
Since that sad affair, she's lost her smie, changed her style,
Somehow she's not the same, just not the same...
Old memories will fade
And pretty dreams will rise up
Where her other dreams fell through
Hurry new love, hurry here
To kiss away each lonely tear
And hold her near when Sunny gets...
--When Sunny Gets Blue (one of my favorite songs of all time, that was the entire song that I had for you there... I DID NOT WRITE IT, but whoever did was an absolute GENIUS)

Hope follows courage.
Set your face towards danger,
Set your heart on victory."

--The same person as I mentioned above who can't be mentioned but I'm mentioning anonymously anyway because I can.
"So what if the Yankees win? It just shows that they don't die hard, if they don't die! If the Yankees win, the Yankee nation gets even more conceited than they already are... But if the Red Sox win, it adds to their memories of victory floating around in Fenway Park. And if they lose, it just makes the faith and the strength itself of the Red Sox nation stronger. A member of the Red Sox nation is a true fan, for after so many losses, a true fan would still love the Red Sox and would wait patiently for a victory. The faith of the Red Sox nation will NEVER waver."
--Me, during a speech against two BRATS, who said that they were diehard Yankees fans.
"Yankee Doodle went to town, holding an electric heater... he accidentally turned it on and good-bye Derek Jeter!
Yankee Doodle keep it up, Yankee Doodle dandy! Mind the Red Sox and their coach and kill off all the Yankees!"

Forgettable faces, they come, they go

This is my sea, my immense sea, and I sing

And the music rises softly from the violins
Then I see your face again."
--Immenso, Andrea Bocelli

--Out of my League, Stephen Speaks
I love you and I'm trembling
Said the woman
To her soldier
Who wouldn't be coming back.
Her plaintive voice
Was carried by the wind
Across the chilling snow
To where her soldier fought
I'm trembling and I love you
She whispered as she cried
And in the darkness of the room
In conquest of the fear
That this love was about to end
But sweet memories can betray you
The soldier doesn't feel anything anymore
His enemy strikes
Who, stragely, was speaking
Of roses, of wine, of life's other joys
That were promised him in another life
Oh, how many brides
Will war take away
From that first night's warm embrace
I'm trembling and I'm cold
Said the soldier
To his enemy, just like himself
His voice hung motionless in the wind
Heard by the silent audience of those that fell before him.
"I feel like the sun,
I feel like the rain
I feel like I just found reason for living again
'Cause what I've been dreaming,
I know that it's real
I know there's just no changing the way I feel
You're into my head
I'm out of my mind
I feel like I've just found reason for being alive
And I have a secret
I think you should know
I feel like I just can't keep it
It's deep within me
And I feel like I'm losing control
Can you see my vision
Of a red hot summer in wine?
When love was the feeling
With no indecision
We were turning that key inside
To get in the moment
We live in a dream,
I see you today
I feel like all my fears are fading away
Been waiting so long for something new
I feel like a constant craving for being with you
And I have a secret I think you should know
I feel like I just can't keep it
It's deep within me
And I know that I'm losing control..."
--My Vision, Seal
"YOU STOLE FROM MY KIN!"
"Who was fixin' to betray us!"

"Go, I will wait for you
The flowers in the garden mark the time
Here I will draw the day of your return
You are so sure of my love
You take it away with you
Cupped in your hands
when you touch your face
As you still think of me
And if you need to, you can show the world
The world that doesn't know what life there is
in an uncaring absent heart
Doesn't know what life there is
In that only the heart can feel
Here I will wait for you
And steal kisses from time
Time is not enough to erase
The memories and the desire that
Remains closed in your hands
That you bring to your face.
You still think of me
It will follow you and passing me in the city
I'll still be here
Dreaming of things that I don't know about you.
Where is the road that You will take on your return
Here I will wait for you
And steal kisses from time
A noise, the wind awakens me
And you're already here."
--Sogno, Andrea Bocelli

I'll finish later. Just too lazy. M+E = L+A+Z+Y. WHOA! My mind's too lazy for that algebraic mumbo-jumbo! What does THAT mean?
I give cookies to people (while still keeping in the mind set that this is Yaviewen's idea that I'm borrowing). They get a cookie for having REALLY good stories, for reviewing mine, or, once in a great while, put me on their favorite author's list(not many people do, only people who put my stories on their favorites list, but not ME!).
Favorite Author cookies:
1) Raven of the Tower (You only do this out of pity that no one reviews!)
2) Amethyst Mage (YOU ROCK, JESS! YOU CAN GET A HUMONGOUS COOKIE OF YOUR CHOICE FROM ME!)
3)Emily Sedlock (I give you free publicity because you reviewed my story in the first haif hour that I posted it!
4)Disturbances within (Same thing as #3! People you don't know but read your stories anyway RULE!)
5)Death Mistress (Cool! YOU PUT ME ON YOUR FAVORITES LIST! THAT IS AWESOME BECAUSE MY STORIES DON'T EVEN COMPARE TO YOURS!)
6)Band Nerd 439 (Hey, thanks, Brittany! Or Megan! I MEANT MEGAN! BRANDON CONFUSED ME!)
7)soccerstar02 (Hey Kim, close the door.)
8)wdpker2 (YAAAAY! I MIGHT GET MORE PUBLICITY!)
9)TayTay04 (I will update SOON! DON'T WORRY!)
I am too lazy to finish MY cookies, so I'll stop here.
The Jock and the Bookworm:
Alyssa and Brian are in sixth grade. Should I make them older? Seventh grade, maybe? Not any older than eighth grade, though...
I am trying to make the chapters longer, but if I can't, there'll be a lot of short chapters, then. Sorry!
Next mood swing! :)
I am VERY weird...
And (In yet another mood swing) I'm just fine about my constant mood swings, so don't you hold that against me! :|
I made up the lisp as much as you did, Juli. You know that I contributed to that story, too. Hee hee hee. I like that laugh.
Thanks, Jess! You have been faithful to me and my stories. HOMEWORK! POOPY! (I am SO immature! Oh, well, it can't be helped. I'd rather be immature than be a full-time swearer anyway...) I'm sorry, Jess, but the person who promised to help me write the next chapter of Teamo is always forgetful! I'll try and get it done, though...
br0kEnInNoseNce - All right! Thanks for being faithful! YOU FINALLY REVIEWED! AFTER ALL OF THAT SHIFT BUTTON PRESSING, YOU FINALLY REVIEWED!!! YESSSSSSSSS! *Maddie jumps around the room, punching her arm in the air.*
xLjPinayx - I did update! Thanks for liking my story, but REVIEW! Er . . . AGAIN!
Jennia - Thanks, but REVIEW SINCE I UPDATED! 9 MORE CHAPTERS TO READ, YOU HAVE! Yoda again. Sorry about that. I just expect everyone who has read my things and reviewed to read the updates.
kac99 - Just re-review the stuff already! Sorry. Same apology to you as I did to Jennia.
Ah, Lady Meriadoc, you are VERY nice to me and I don't deserve such praise from you. Just remember: the man from the prologue has to come in somewhere, doesn't he?
Juli again - I'm sorry that you're in sixth grade, but so was I when I started this story... Meh... It's Easter and there's no candy that I can see... MEH, I'm hungry...
Passion101 - Why not log in? Then I could read your material and you could read more of mine and stuffs. Thank you for not being grossed out like SOME PEOPLE do (AHEM, Juli). I seem to be coughing a lot tonight...
LaUrEn - Thanks, Lauren. Feels good to have someone so... Like you actually like my story.
How Safe Are You?:
Lady Meriadoc - YOU! YOU, uh, are nice to me. You don't need the caps lock. Some other people do that I, er, know don't use fictionpress. Anyway, back to your review.
Really? My story is COLLEGE ESSAY acceptable? Wow. And I mean really WOW. AWESOME! Now, I have to go do a victory dance around the office room, punching my arm in the air. Excuse me.
Does a deranged victory dance around the room, and punches both arms in the air, humming an unrecognizable tune.*
All right, I'm back. But seriously, I had help. If it were REALLY my writing style, and I didn't have a helpful tip from that teacher at the writing class, I would have put something like, "Little did Ashley know that doom waited around the corner." Oh well. Having the element of surprise is better. Thanks, Faye!
Juli - Yousa Jar Jar Binks? Mesa doesn't think so. MESA JAR JAR BINKS! How wude! Impersonating mesa.
What is the story? Do tell! TELL ME NOW, OR, ER, THE IDEA THAT I HAD FOR YOUR THIRD BIRTHDAY WILL MYSTERIOUSLY VANISH FROM MY MIND!
Oh, yessa. Mesa Jar Jar Binks. Qui-Gon-Jin saved mesa's life! YAAAY!
Death Mistress - YOU LIKE MY STORIES! YES! YES! YES! FINALLY! YES! YES! YEEEEEEEEEES!
Oh yes. There is a CAPS LOCK on here. Whoops. I forgot I had it on. Or did I?
Disturbances Within - You reviewed the first HALF HOUR that I posted. That's a record, even for me. I'm amazed. Thank you.
Yes, I did make the minor mistake, but I thought that those who haven't seen the wonderful bible-on-the-screen might just want to see what the squeakin' was about...
LoveHateSerenity - Thanks for your review! It's really great to get a lot of feedback, and just put me on Author Alert, my, er, people, don't like me sending Emails to people I don't know.
Martin: But you could send a review...
Maddie: STOP IT, YOU GUYS! Love, or I dunno what to call you, that seems a bit queer, er, um, Martin and Joe are the voices inside my head. They give me ideas and decide whether I should remember things or not. That's why I keep losing my wallet. They want to see the money that stays in there because I never spend it...
Megan Read 489 (Who I think is Brittany) - THANKS! GOODGOOODGOOD! Not that Stefan shot a woodpecker! That's just sad, and rude, to kill his own kind! Now that he plays the saxophone, he's one with the woodpeckers! HE EVEN DOES THE WOODPECKER DANCE! I don't understand it. He's mean.
Lady Meriadoc - GEM! THAT'S WORTH MONEY! AND A STORY THAT'S WORTH MONEY, WELL, THAT MEANS I HAVE MORE MONEY FOR MY WALLET! I'll be ready to accept that royalty for the one chapter, please, maybe THAT will take away my writer's block...
Juli - YOU AGAIN! WHY DO YOU KEEP REVIEWING? Oh yeah, because, well, just because. I already played on the new computer, sorry to go against your threat. Loraine, I am your density...
Somewhere They Can't Find Me:
Juli - Hmm, only you... Maybe the fans of Simon and Garfunkel are offended that I would make a story out of it... Or maybe no one's interested. Either way, this is another one I have writer's block on.
The Beginning of the End:
Juli, take my hanky and blow your nose. THEN WIPE IT ON MARZINELLIDY! Ah, that would make him even more snotty!
Lady Meriadoc - I know, it was a bit extreme, I was just pretty hopping mad when I was typing that, and the first thing that came to my mind was TA Maxwell's The End, so I thought, at the time, it was like 9/11, but I don't see a lot of the connection now. Ah well. I can't take down a story once I put it up. I get too attached. Then again, all things should be treated with respect... I've been watching the Karate Kid movies too many times...
Me - You! You shouldn't be writing reviews that are bad towards yourself! DO NOT FLAME YOURSELF! IT'S BAD! BAD, YOU HEAR?
The Eternal Plan:
HappyGirl737 - Hi, Katie! Thanks for thinking that it's chilling, I do think it's rather primitive, my writing style has changed so much since then. Oh well.
Thanks, Kay Kylo! I really like your stuff and I'm glad you like mine! I'll read more of your story once you write more! I REALLY like your plot line!
Tweak McFreak - I'm sorry, I've just been too lazy to update the Review Feedback or the cookie list. Will do soon. Not tonight. Maybe tomorrow. I don't know. ME LAZY AND TIRED!
Lady Meriadoc - I don't get offended. I get so many good ideas, and I don't realize they're almost exactly like books I've read or movies I've seen that I feel bad and end up deleting them. This one was no different, but I've convinced myself it was original, and it IS original, but I thought it was like Bicentennial Man... Is that how you spell Bicentennial? Oh well...
Juli - I'm not even going to write much in here. You review every one of my stories. Period. Thank you. :)
wdpker2 - CHRISTINE! YAAAAAAAAAY! YOU FINALLY REVIEWED ONE OF MY STORIES! GOOOOOOOOOOOOD! Funfun. It's Easter and I'm waiting for CANDY! GIVE ME CANDY! NOW! OR BURGERS, PIZZA, AND FRIES! I WANT THEM! I WANT ALL OF THE BURGERS AND FRIES IN THE WORLD! I'VE GONE ONE MONTH WITHOUT THEM, AND NOW I WANT THEM BACK! I OWN THEM! The next burger you see me eat will be gone in three seconds flat, thank you very much.
YAVIEWEN (or Death Mistress, now) - THANKS! This is SO cool. HAHAHA, I am loved! Or liked. Or just recognized for my stories. Anyway, the third verse was meant to go off with the rhythm, but otherwise, thanks for keeping this in mind. OH! Martin and Joe reminded me to tell you, they tell me to kill, too. Luckily, I threaten to go to the mall and splurge all of my money on Abercrombie and Hollister clothes that don't even fit me, and they shut up... Hmmm, threatening voices... Try that... It works...
Juli - Why should I write happy songs when I touch people so much better when I write sad ones? Answer me that!
keisha ali - FUN TO BE CALLED TALENTED! THANK YOU! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!
Lady Meriadoc - Thanks again for being faithful even though I haven't updated in a while. A REALLY long while. But all of that's going to change. I hope. I have too much homework this year...
Tales of a Life in the Jungle (More Commonly Known as My School):
wdpker2 - Hmmmm, do you think I should do it to... Someone? JEFF! WE'LL FIND HIS SECRET MARY JANES AND FILL THEM WITH SOMETHING MUCH WORSE THAN CORNMEAL! BWAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA! Thank you for reviewing.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Lex - Thanks for reviewing! And for saying it's funny. It was hard to start, and I thought it was a bit crude, but thanks! I DO NOT LIKE MARY JANES, can't you tell?
HannahMarie*Phoenix - And you! Thanks for reviewing! I seriously thought that people would think that it was crude! If you like it, read some of my other stuff (that's been gathering dust because no one is R&Ring)! Thanks a lot!
The Trials of Friendship:
Lady Meriadoc (Your review isn't there any more because I had to delete Don't I Matter, but I would still like to give you recognition) - Can I call you Faye? :waits for answer: Oh, screw it, I'll just keep going. Yes, you are the first to review. It was a true thing, right from the heart, and I'm sad about it still. I'm just happy for all of the friends I do have (AND FANS, TOO! FANS ARE GOOD FRIENDS!)
jus-me - Thanks for noticing that... I'm normally a grammar freak, and I fixed that right away... But now we're good again, so... I'M HAPPY! HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Erm, that doesn't make for lots of poetry, though... Sunshine and daisies and puppies playing in the sunshine and the daisies and everyone is so rediculously happy... :gags: DAISIES SMELL BAD!
Amethyst Mage - Jess, I know you are... Thank you, but now things are fine between me and Juli, so no need to worry.
I think I know - KIM! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA! Hi. Don't make fun of my stuff in a review! LOL, imagine me in an overly dramatic voice reading your interior monologue... :tries to remember: Ah, screw it... Thanks for reviewing!
Love Lifts Us Up Where We Belong:
Juli - What are you presently doing? I have no idea because it is cut off. YOU WILL BE TELLING ME SOONISH! GIVE ME FUSHIGI YUUGI NOW! NOOOOOOOW!
Yes. Back to your review. I got the Email, I did add some non-genuine feelings and situations then, like with Hutchua, if he really thought that, well, then, more power to him. But if he didn't, I hope he doesn't read this, LOL.
superstar02 - Hi, Kim. Thanks for the review. Erm... I had a small thing for "Jake" at the time, and a thing a bit later on, you'll see, I'll make something happen... There's a REASON why the guys are all over Melanie.
wdpker2 - Thanks! Good to see things from your perspective, too! I've gotta write the second and third and whatever chapters, too! GOTTA GO!
September 15, 2004 - I know, I know, there's absolutely no reason why I haven't updated yet... Forgive me! Chapter two of Love Lifts Us Up Where We Belong is SO HARD! And every time I finally get on the computer, I'm kicked off for some other reason... Bah.
July 30, 2004 - Hello! I'm sorry I haven't been updating lately! Currently I'm in Maine right now on my grandpa's laptop, and I'm afraid to upload in case it breaks down -- it's had two meltdowns already! I'm working on the next chapters for Love Lifts Us Up Where We Belong, plus a cast of characters that will be updated per chapter! YAAAAAY! Ummm, yes. I'll go work on the next chapters.
April 11, 2004 - Okay, my fans, PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP ON ME! I've been working around my writer's block and I think I have a breakthrough! Expect: Updates on The Jock and the Bookworm How Safe Are You? , and Tales of a Life in the Jungle AKA My School , a title change for The Eternal Plan , a couple of short stories added to The Eternal Plan , and other stories to be started! Hopefully I can keep up with them. I have no idea how to continue The Cub , but I'll keep it up for all you lovers of not hunting... :COUGH, HACK: NOT STEFAN! :HACK, COUGH: LOL, anyways, that's all I have to say. I'll keep working on my stories. NEVER give up on me, my loyal, um, THINGIES! Remember, only the loyalest fans get a cookie!
Okay...Maybe I was a little harsh when I wrote my own review on The Beginning of the End, but I was SO FREAKING MAD! I told my friends about it, and they just laughed and told me it was a stupid thing to care about. I disagree. And since I would lose their friendship if I take out my anger on them, I take out my anger on you. I am very sorry.
August 10, 2003 - All righty! I'm sorry if I might have taken your stories off of my favorite stories list or taken you off of my favorite author's list. I had so many, I had to delete some before the thingymabobber filled up. I had no choice! The ones that I took off are on my AOL favorites list under a Fictionpress folder...
July 17, 2003 - Sorry I haven't been updating! I have a huge writers block and really good ideas for other stories, but don't give up on me! I can make it through this, and may post some crappy chapters to get back into it, but I think I'll be able to get back in... Eventually...
I am Smiley Gurl 1019 at Fanfiction.net, too! Read my Teamo Supremo fanfic! And my HP Song! So far, only Juli and Jess have... I'M WORKING ON CHAPTER TWO!
I keep flames up because I accept, but don't appreciate, flames. I understand that people have different views. But please, if you must flame me, refrain from swearing and/or insulting myself, just say that you aren't particularly pleased with the story and I'll get the message. I prefer constructive criticism, because it's easier to know what these people want.
