im too lazy to sign in...to xXDanzigXx,thank you so much for your review :) and yes, those three points are very good and very true. i have smoked marijuana too, and for the most part, it wouldnt be my drug of choice, simply because i can never get high from it. so yes, i agree with your first point, that people seldom achieve any sort of high the first time they try it. however, in alice's case, the cravings and mental dilemmas are mostly psychological. because she had been so sheltered and naive (as much as not to know that her best friends had been smoking up for a long time), she has a very skewed perception of drugs. when i started writing this story i agreed with her to a certain extent thinking all drugs are bad, all drugs are addictive, all drugs ruin your life, which is simply not the case.i also know that cancer is not caused by marijuana cigarettes. you are more prone to some sort of lung defficiency if you smoke a substance, but it doesnt guarrantee anything. the reason cigarettes are so harmful is because they have over 10 toxic chemicals inside a single one. the tobacco in a cigarette is hardly what causes diseases or disfunctions. the story is from alice's point of view, even though it is written in third person. so her thoughts, opinions, feelings and knowledge are what come through to the reader... so you're getting her view of drugs, not mine. thank you again, for the review, and i hope you enjoy the rest :)

Good story you've got here. As a musician myself, I can relate to some of it, especially the drugs. I'm only on chapter eleven, but I'd just like to poin out a few things about weed. This might sound lame, but you should know if you're going to include drug references.
1) VERY few people ever get high off the first try.
2) Weed isn't an addictive drug, at least not in the sense of cigarettes or alcohol. It doesn't give you a physical addiction, but a mental one; it makes you want to try it again because you enjoyed it, not because your body needs it. Weed junkies don't exist.
3) Weed doesn't effect you're health too bad. In fact, it's less harmful then cigarettes. It can't give you cancer because you don't smoke that often. Even if you did it twice a day for twenty years, you wouldn't get lung cancer. You can't O.D. from weed. It doesn't damage brain cells. In fact, they're are chemicals in weed that can cure cancer, or other diseases.
Well there's my 2 cents. Keep writing. I look forward to finishing the story.

Oh. My. GOD. That was the BEST FIC EVER! I can relate, ALOT. I know how Alice could feel about Johnny and Christina. That's a whole different story, but anyways... Awesome work.

| it chapter 3 . 10/18/2003
I think Alice shouldn't have that much toruble fiduring uot what's the matter with Seth. I mean, come on, she's not stupid and she didn't live that much of a sheltered life. The second thoughs thing is both very real and a bit disapointing. The dreamworld of this story is strting to blend into a more solid reality. Chapter 3 is very well written and I do hope I can read more tonight. Your work is awsome.
| it chapter 2 . 10/18/2003
The chapter does start off in a bit of a rush. I think it is just a bit unrealistic of a whole group of people to just walk out on their lives, but then again, that is what makes this novel exciting. I really like where this chapter is going. You make me want to read more of it, which will be hard to do today. So far it’s a great story.

It 2:19, and i'm doing my best to stay awake, so don't blame me if this makes no sence whatsoer, let alone the spelling. I think this has a lot of potential. You started out wiht a really nice plotline and i'm curious to see where its gonna go. I think the first chapter was a bit too intense though. It almost felt like you were rushing it in some parts. A bit more detail about her friends would have been nice. But then again, I should really read on a bit more before I start saying that. Overall though, I liked it. YOUR WORK IS GOOD. and I will send my baboons after you if you say that its not. I'll definatly find the time to read it all. I really do like where its going. You're a great writer.
