Seriously? That's awesome news! I'll definitely maybe think about voting for Maybe :) (I don't think that joke works very well in this context. Oh well.)
I really hope you don't have to quit writing this story, because it's definitely one of my favorites on fictionpress! But I understand if things get too stressful or too busy, you might need to take off some time for these things. Just don't get yourself too worked up!
I love the snippets, by the way. I have no real idea what's going on, of course (well, I kinda do, but you know what I mean0, but it definitely prepares me for what's the come next :) I can't wait to read it!
Have a very amazing day,

congrats! they'd be crazy not to pick this amazing, perfect, genius story. seriously. :)
thanks for the update...i really hope you can find a median somewhere and just let yourself relax, because too much stress is bad for you, you know.
have a fantastic week, and remember-we'll stick with you. that's what a fanbase (hmm...wrong term. whatever) does. :)

yay, indie’s cool. And I agree with stealing lines from songs, or books, or movies, or poems. Or writing your own words to tell a hidden truth. It’s still philosophical. And Banksy, yay, I like him.
I really felt for her not being able to share and almost alienating people as a result. Writing is kind of selfish like that, especially when you’re too scared to admit. I sympathise with the need to lie about it I guess because you feel like other people wont understand.
I liked the rumpelstiltskinian wordsmiths, but it feels like you missed a word before the comma. This chapter made me sad. Despite the conversations with Bryant there was a lot of isolation, so that kind of held it together. The then they grew up rounded it of nicely. Actually I’m quite, not depressed, but sort of angry because I want to change the way things are.
Hmm, freeway. I thought life, maybe, almost. Her dad’s remark that he knew where they were going was almost sinister in a away because it felt controlling. Because he wants her to get a proper job rather than write. I think I’m way of base with that though.
It was good to see more of Bryant. He’s normally more like a dangled carrot in the background.
Dream job: lecturer on women’s literature from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. There are women from that period who really inspire me. And it would have to be in some dusty old university with flying buttresses and wooden panelling and history hanging in the dust. To accomplish I’d like to win real money in a writing competition instead of book tokens (not that book tokens aren’t good…..) or write something so witty and insightful it’ll get quoted on a greeting card.
Sorry this took so long, but it was a long chapter and I wanted to get into it properly.

Wow, kinda sad. Aw, I hope they get together in the end!

Happy 2010 and hope your holidays went well and you are doing well. I stole my friend's new years resolution: Get light and find mister right. Cute huh?
What's your dream job? Writer/teacher...I'm getting there...slowly. What are some things you want to accomplish within your lifetime? Live, love, be happy, spread knowledge and share my passion...all which can be accomplished in several ways. And did anyone understand what the freeway stood for? Honestly the first thing that popped into my head was Rascal Flatt's "Life is a Highway" doubt that is it, but I'll offer it up as my guess.
More cute interchange between Ella (she has a name!) and Bryant. But not to sickenly sweet, very realistic...I've had that type of a conversation before actually. The writing bits are amazing. Seriously you should pile Ella's story into like an added part or another story post (kind of like what Meg Cabot did with Princess Mia's sotry she wrote but better.) Amazing as always. Keep up the good work. I updated my website if you want something to occupy your time while i slowly update. :( SOrry about that. Blame life. Best wishes.

SO I read this awhile ago and then life took ahold of me and I forgot to review. Bows head in shame.
I love the heart to heart over the test tubes. Adorable. And the whole asking for numbers/phone number confusion was priceless...pretty sure I let out a big AW. If the MC doesn't jump on Bryant soon I might kidknap him. ;) Love that they keep getting more way to communicate outside of school and their "relationship" is blooming, slowly but blooming none-the-less. Hope that plays a role later on somehow. The AIM convo was nicely done too..stuck to their characters, wasn't too mushy or rushed yet sweet even though he doesn't know it's her...exactly. Love her name too :) Clever cover too. I wouldn't have thought of that that quickly.
Her dream is amazing, or at least that's what I took the last bit as. Truely genius. Beautiful and romantic and poetic and yeah. Great.
I've had some pretty reandom conversations, especially with guys...depends on the night, the earlier in the morning the wierder usually...everything from kitchen appliances to baked goods to arguing over soda.

HAHA! wow. finally, some development between the main characters. I seriously find that "bad typo" at the beginning, though. Actually, I found someone on Youtube that did the same thing and the majority of the comments on that video was about that typo and not about the video..LOL.
Anyway. I think the freeway meant her own life? Because she felt lonely and all, rejected. Maybe? Haha. I'm probably wrong but at least I tried...hehe..
Nice chapter, by the way. I really really like your style of writing. I wonder, how you can put those simple words together and create remarkable phrases..?
So yeah. Update soon.. ;D

Love is not an emotion but a choice. Love is seeking the best for someone. When you're patient with them, kind, you persevere. If you want a full definition read chapter 13 in 1 Corinthians. It's not very long. And for me, THAT is love.
PS: I'm enjoying your story very much.

This was really an amazing chapter. Although I don't really like shims any more. That was actually really mean. And Ella, she really doesn't seem like a person who could the worldd on all by her lonesome self. It's kind of sad reading this, because somehow it feels like there's not going to be a happy ending no matter how I slice it, it's almost like her confidence makes her ending unhappy. But the way you write is so deep, you can't help but keep praying that she dies.
My dream job is to be a doctor, or someone that matters in the world. Really, all I wantto do is make a difference. Swell I can't wait for your next update, yu have to hurry!

My dream job...Well,it'd be easier for me to say what I'm interested in instead of what I'd actually pursue a career in.I love writing,but I don't necessarily see myself as a full-time know,the whole starved and living in a tiny apartment is something I adore with a passion,but mostly for the expression of myself not to others.I really like the whole creative spectrum of fashion designing,drawing,even I'm just too young to really know what I want to do and what I can are those people that can say definitely what they plan to do and how to do ,those people intimidate me.I'm just one of those dreamers on the side that wave it off as something a bit farther off in their life but are really just too scared to think about it.
I suppose that one thing I would want to accomplish would be to travel the one of those backpacking trips that no doubt will include many disasters but all in all be one of the most greatest experiences of my that's just something wishful of ,I'd just want to be able to live long with the people I love,celebrating life till the again,something freeway...Just to say but I don't particularly like see,I've had some...unfortunate accidents with cars and such so the idea of dozens of cars zooming by at god knows what MPH,doesn't really calm me I imagine them though,I can only think that it feels like life is sort of rushing past you and you're just caught in the middle,wondering where to go,how you're ,someday she won't be able to fall back on anyone and she won't just be able to sit in the backseat merely just catches up with you all in a rush and you're left breathless and confused.
Anyways,any Bryant and Ella time is good enough for the situation be awkward or completely at ease,at least they're getting to know each other somehow.I won't tell you how many awkward moments me and my er crush have could cut a knife through that tension.
I can really understand how Ella feels with her ,I've been confused about who my true friends were and if they really do understand me or not.I've been through the whole secret-conversation-you're-not-invited thing and it definitely hurts because you really think you know a person but one measly thing just tears it all all you can do it is take it,ignore it,and pretend like you're all right.
Continuing on,I don't really have any New Years I make any,I know I probably wouldn't be able to follow them and really,what's the point?Besides,I don't see what I could change that'd affect ,I spent the last moments of 2009 reading fictionpress stories to see I'm not the only one that really lived New Year's Eve out.
Good luck in this year!

Yet another great chapter!
My dream job would be being a surgeon but writing books in my free time. The thing I want to accomplish in my lifetime is ... giving a person the gift of time.
I think I understood what the freeway stood for. I think that it represents life - not knowing who you're going to be, and what's going to happen in tomorrow, where your life is heading. The future.
| covertwatch chapter 20 . 1/2/2010
so...yeah...lolz. I really like this, mostly because I can connect with your characters in a deep and realistic way. You can definitely write, of course, but knowing how to write a story and making your story come to life are two totally different things and you just accomplished both so good job :)
| All Over You chapter 20 . 1/2/2010
Loved the chapter yay! Goodness, it feels like I haven't read this story in the longest time!
Dream job: Oncologist.
Accomplishments: Way too many to list here. Lol.
I think the freeway stands for exactly what it's called. A way to be free. Or something like that. No real destination, just a way to get out and see the world.
No New Year's resolutions. I try to have them, but then I just give up lol. And besides. Why restrict yourself to something like that?
| covertwatch chapter 3 . 1/2/2010
so it's 2:00 a.m and i'm only on the second chapter but i'm already convinced this story is worth reading. that last paragraph in the end...it clinched it :)
