Ask me anything and everything. I might answer. Let the suspense boil ;)
Most Smiled Responses
My first kiss. Booooooo. It was just bad and I didn't like the guy, and now I don't like him even more and it was just bad.
I should have waited but I'm stupid haha I wanted to get it over with but now it's like...why? I don't kiss boys on a regular basis (im awkward and dont like intimacy so much) so I haven't kissed many boys AFTER that incident so it's hard to forget because it's not like I have a whole bunch of other experiences to drown it out with hah

Most frustrating author: GoinCrazy4JB just because all of the feels i have for her characters. i don't want to talk about what happened to me while reading Kiss Me Again. oi.
I was trying to make a lot of decisions based on recent stories and such but i just don't read as much as i used to. but these are my answers as of this moment.
i KNOW there are a BUNCH of amazing stories that i have to read. i'm interested in what other people will say so i can make notes to read said works. :) with that said i also KNOW my answers will NOT be the majority of the vote because of my lack of reading said amazing works.
I think I have a tendency to get attached to some characters. Right so...
Logan from Relapse by GoinCrazy4JB. I often fall in love with her boy characters. They always have quirks and no matter WHAT, they're always deliciously attractive in my mind. I want to be Emma (Logan's girlfriend) a ridiculous amount. Their relationship was so adorable and they loved each other so much. Logan is just so sweet and...yup. I've fallen in love with this fictional character.
I'd also want to date Joe from A New Light by Dasweetie. He's possibly the sweetest guy ever from what I've read, but he's still a regular guy, you know? Like I hate it when guys are so mushy and shit. Blech. This Joe is sweet in a fun kind of way and he still acts like a normal guy too.
And...uh...well, Nick is pretty much always attractive to me. But if I had to choose, I'd pick the Nick from...Trailblazer in Amsterdam by green and yellow because the mysterious, dark, troubled Nick is incredibly sexy. That's all I really have to say about that haha
This is just...not original at all, but it's the best I could think of. I think I'm kind of like Kate from John Tucker Must Die in the sense of her shy demeanor and how she looks to her friends for guidance. Like, I really have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to guys and sometimes I think of the part where they ask her if she's a good kisser. And then when she doesn't know, they ask her if boys have TOLD her she's a good kisser and she freaks out thinking she's a horrible kisser. It just always comes to mind when I think about...well, kissing boys. I'm not a good kisser, either, then hah
It's also weird to admit that we are common because we befriend popular people but still manage to stay under the radar. My friends are...'popular' in a sense. Like they have a lot of friends and it's weird when people would say, 'you're best friends with her?' because they just had no idea I even hung out with them. Granted, we went to different high schools so it was kind of understandable lol
Anyway, yeah. That's really the best I could do. :/ #ShyAwkwardMe
Title: Shy, Awkward Me
Rating: PG-13...or R for language (oops)
Tag line/Slogan: No one said coming out of your shell was going to be this difficult.
My mom calls me peanut just because, my friend karissa occasionally calls me DV which stands for darth vader because she thinks I'm evil or something (I never really understood) and my brother (and occasionally my mom and karissa) call mandychelle to annoy me. It's something my brother came up with by combining my first name - Amanda - and my middle name - Michelle. It's stupid and I don't like any of them.
Joey from Friends. I don't mind changing my gender because I just love his character so much. I don't care that he's sort of dumb, and sort of poor. He loves food, he's got awesome friends and I just love him.

They are all so different, yet they all have things in common: great creative plots, amazing talented authors and the ability to keep me interested. They have all the best qualities that I look for in a story.
Of course, there are many more, but I haven't read much lately.
Medic for the Toronto maple leafs by far. Dear lord that would be great. Not only because I'm a huge leafs fan, but I am so incredibly attracted to some of those athletes. Gah. Plus I'd get to travel all over the US and Canada with them and get the summer off to maybe work in a hospital for those few months.
Ramona from Ramona and Beezus. She seemed like a cool kid back when I was in the second grade and had to read all of those books ;)
Overrated: probably a lot of the artist's that are mainstream lol I guess I'll just go with...oh! Pitbull. Never really liked him :/
Underrated: Marianas Trench. They're a Canadian band that is just amazing. I've loved them forever and now that they're starting to broaden their fanbase I want everyone to love them! Fun fact: the lead singer is good friends with Carly Rae Jepson and cowrote Call Me Maybe (among others) :)
Sounds ridiculous to me. I haven't read it but it just sounds like its a big book of porn lol I've also heard that the writing isn't that great.
Karissa. I tried this experiment once to see how long I could go without talking to her. Probably one of the hardest things I've done hah I just always tell her random stuff and when I did this experiment it was REALLY hard not to text her. (by the way, I did this experiment without telling her...I did it because I felt like I was being clingy...if one can be clingy to someone they've never met in person)
My best friend, Karissa. Although I've never met her in person, she's ALWAYS been just a text or email away. There aren't many days that I go without texting her and I literally tell her EVERYTHING. probably even more than my best friends that I've had since kindergarten
I've pondered over this question for awhile now (which is why it took so long for me to answer it) and i honestly can't think of anything. Writing is a hobby of mine, and it HAS changed me in many aspects, and i don't think anything could really replace it.
It's gotten me more than something to do in my spare time. It's gotten me so many friends that i'm grateful for :)
maybe i'd just eat more and play the sims more if i didn't write. i'd probably be 400 pounds. Glorious.
I can't really remember but I do remember having to write a 'scary' story for Halloween in the fifth grade or something. I wrote it kinda like Final Destination where Death was after people. It was actually in Death's POV. I only remember that because when some people died, I remember writing 'gotcha!' lmao lame. I'm sure there were others but I don't remember their storylines or anything :/
Hmm...this took me a few days to think over because I honestly needed that much time to decide lol good question though. This is what I came up with:
Kevin and Olivia from Comfort and Joy by Courtlyn
Joe and Shelby from the A Fate We Can't Avoid series by GoinCrazy4JB
Nick and Natti from Trailblazer in Amsterdam by green and yellow
Not always but most of the time, yes.
I feel like all the best writers write scenes out of order, and I'd never really done it until 143.
143 is mostly just...unplanned. Like, it's all spur of the moment. When I started 143, I had no idea where I was going with it but along the way I developed ideas for the future and I couldn't help but write later scenes before id gotten to them. They're actually sit of helpful since then I have a goal to reach.
Rules of Seduction by SocrBritney. I think it might be the dry humour that really makes it stand out in my mind. It's not the humour that makes me go 'hehe' it's the awesome kind of humour that makes me laugh out loud like 'HAHAHA', you know? Plus it was just so original and there wasn't one scene with Joe involved that didnt give me butterflies. I love those scenes.
Trailblazer in Amsterdam by green and yellow. I reread this recently (well a few months ago) and it was just...it was 10 times better than it was the first time just because of the memories it brought back. The memories of how I felt when reading it the FIRST time. I absolutely love Natti Bean. She's such an original character and her quirks were so....I don't even know how to describe it they just made me love her all the more. And Nick was definitely the moody mysterious guy that made me feel butterflies. He was so confusing yet so simplistic at the same time! I love that Natti was able to give up Nick because she knew it wasn't healthy to stay with him and I also love that Nick found it in himself to not depend on Natti but still came back to her and wanted her because of the RIGHT reasons. Dear Lord, what a great storyline.
Take Me There by lonely. I also reread this sort of recently and I love it because it has all the elements that I usually tend to stay away from but I STILL loved every moment of it. I don't usually like stories with warnings such as: alcohol abuse, death, drug abuse, emotional and physical abuse and rape but my God, I loved this. The journey of ups and downs that Julissa and Nick go through together are definitely struggles but it such a strong and well written story that none of it is rushed or cliche. I will recommend this story until the end of time.
