Just something I needed to write out.
(#) HellOnHigh9 2009-01-24 04:37:36 PMLiked it, That must have been seriously crazy. I mean what dad does that? I mean if you'd upset his daughter fine go ahead beat the crap out of the guy. But otherwise just back the fuck off you know? Written fantastically. Another Job well done C.
Author's responseWho does that is someone that is not adept at talking :/
- As Cat has already said that was really well written, every thing we have come to love and expect from you. And her dad sounds lame, can understand why he was upset but that is not the way to react at all.
Thanks for sharing that.
Author's responseThanks L! Yeah I can totally understand why he was update. I mean, what Dad wouldn't want "the best" for his daughter. But he refused to see past a lot of things and I think he could have just talked to me when I was sober and gained a lot more ground.
(der) update = upset lol
(#) girlinthemoon 2009-01-24 06:29:07 PMThis was very well written. An interesting experience to share.
The Dad was kinda, well, an ass. But, I can understand why. He was being protective of his daughter. Doesn't mean I think he was right to do that.
I’m kinda glad you’re posting in the Original section. It gives you the chance to be read by more people.
Author's responseYes I can totally see the dad's point. But he went about it the wrong way I think. At that time, it definitely would have been better to have a real conversation with me (while I was sober). But he never did seem to "get it" ... like he overlooked or didn't comprehend my real feelings. I dunno, I'm glad that era is over. lol
- I'm glad i found this, you write in such a way that is so easy to read even when it's a really uncomfortable situation. I loved it.It's so sad but only if he had let you speak and not when you're wasted.
Author's responseThanks, neve! This was that think I briefly mentioned in the chat this week. It made me think about it and I just felt like writing it.
And yeah, he never has really listened to me. Although thankfully it's not as bad as it once was.
(#) izziebella 2009-01-25 04:29:13 PMI'm glad that I found it too...I agree with you, but I can see how the dad might have been feeling. But that was totally the wrong way to deal with it. And wow, he sounds just like my dad =/
Author's responseYeah, I definitely don't think it's wrong for a dad to be pissed off about his daughter dating a guy who was drunk all the time. I just wish he would have dealt with it differently. Thanks for reading though!
(#) Leah270193 2009-01-28 11:28:06 AMJust as always like I expected this was really well done. You have got a really good knack at doing conversations they are just really realistic and natural. It was really exciting to read and i don't think you made any grammatical error.
YAY :) I want more pleeeaaaase!!!!
p.s This has inspired me to write something. Not tonite tho I've got exams all next week so i dunno 8(
Author's responseThanks =) I didn't feel it was my best thing, but it was just something that I had to type out. I'm glad it inspired you though! xD
(#) Emo_musik_chick 2009-03-05 03:16:52 PM...Wow. Okay. While I totally agree with the father wanting to protect his daughter [take it from somebody whose past proves that girls NEED TO BE PROTECTED], beating the crap out of somebody who did nothing to him is always, always wrong, no matter how you defend it.
And I thought the writing was excellent. [And I swear I'm not just saying that.] It had this almost...poetic, for lack of a more descriptive term, aspect to it. And kudos to you for posting something so personal- I wouldn't be able to make fanfiction out of the stuff that happened to me. You're strong.
That was really good. =]
Author's responseThanks for this review. And I agree with you cause even I can see his point of view that he'd only want the "best" for his daughter - but he was totally blind to anything else. I married his daughter btw and it's like 6 years later (I've been totally sober for 5 of those) and he still occasionally finds a way to verbally abuse me.
Anyway, thanks again and if you read more of my stuff, I'd love to hear what you think.
