A letter from the heart, for a failed suicide attempt. Oneshot
(#) _Amy_Revenge_ 2009-07-18 07:03:18 PMOh my jizz I thought you were saying you were gonna quite writing at first.. And then I read it again ^^
I liked it, and it was short and sweet(or however you wanna call it)
I'll probably go read it again.. ^^
=^::^= CUTE FACE!
Thanks for turning my thingy green, Sass-o-frass LoL ^^
Author's responseNo, even if I wanted to stop writing, my head won't let me!
Thanks for reviewing! and the rating? No worries - you deserved it!! I loved it!
(#) ilo9vemcrgmfrb 2009-07-18 08:33:34 PMThat was beautifully written!
Author's responseThank you! That's very kind of you!
It was late last night and it all came pouring out (well, what there is of it - it's very short). Funny how that happens sometimes, eh?
(#) _Amy_Revenge_ 2009-07-18 08:52:18 PMAlright, I read it again, and it kind of posed a question: to get rid of all three, do you commit suicide?
Author's responseYeah, it's a suicide note for an attempt that failed.
I think someone in that much distress will make an attempt to explain, but not a very successful one.
It'll be full of references that mean something to the individual only and will appear quite cryptic otherwise.
Thanks for reviewing again.
PS When I put up the description, I didn't want to be too obvious, but now, when it's not very late. I see it's just not clear at all, so I changed it (and the name) slightly
- ok, not to be rude, but it sucks. ummmmmmmmmm, thers this siote called emobucket, stick that on there, cuz i'm sure we all don't want to hear about poetic sucide.
Author's responseOk, to begin with, anyone who starts with "not to be rude" generally is doing just that, but that's not the issue here.
Second - Just to clarify a point - I am a perfectly well adjusted adult, not an emo kid who sees the world in some sort of depressing light, you only have to read any of my other stories to see that.
A moment's research would have told you that, but then obviously, I can't expect that.
Also, it's clearly not poetry. It's meant to be exactly what I said it was - my take on a note that might have been written, referring back to when Gerard tried to commit suicide but eventually didn't - you appear to have missed the point. But that's okay too.
I'm sorry you don't like it, but then, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
- WTF!! How can you not realise what this is about??
Anyway, I thought it was beautiful too, it just felt so real. It makes me wonder if he did leave a note.
There are a few stories about G being talked out of suicide, but no one's ever done the 'before' bit.
Author's responseThanks Cottontop! I'm really glad you enjoyed it. A quick glance tells me that you and I have both written a story about Gee's suicidal thoughts and I know there're more.
Yeah, I wanted to think about what else might have happened. Perhaps it would have been more obvious if I put a name on the bottom of it, but I honestly thought it was clear, maybe not. Not to worry - everything can't be to everyone's taste and I understand that :)
(#) MyFamousLastWords 2009-07-20 04:50:32 AMWell, to me, it was as clear as the nose on my face.
I like the way it was written, it was nice and short. It didn't drone on and turn into crap.
Author's responseThanks Fin! I really appreciate that!
Yeah, I was concerned about it being only a few hundred words long, but it felt right for what it was.
I'm really glad you liked it :)
(#) canustakemyheart 2009-07-20 10:42:11 AMSas, this was awesome. Having been in a similar situation I thing you're right that someone might make some vain attempt to explain but fail (I never even wrote a note) and it might sound like this.
Oh and to vampyGee - I find it fascinating that you thought this sucked and thought it was "emo". What are you, 14? You obviously don't know shit about the world ... or writing for that matter. I don't usually call people out but Sassy's one of the best writers on here and she's not an emo kid.
I guess it's expected for sparkly vampire kids like you to think they know everything about everything, but you need to check that attitude, "not to be rude" of course.
Author's responseThank you C! You know the way I write and, with this, I put a lot of effort into getting myself in the mindset of someone that down. And given what you've shared, if you say it feels like it could be real, I'm flattered.
Thank you too for standing by me and for the stunning compliment you paid me. My jaw dropped when I read that - especially when I (and dozens of others) would have said exactly the same thing about you! You have totally made my day! Thank you!
(#) _Amy_Revenge_ 2009-07-20 01:20:08 PMEmobucket? Sounds like.. patheticness.. Considering you're obviously a better writer than she is I don't think she has any room to speak about what crappy writing is.
Anyway, I just thought I'd mention that I posted another one-shot and I think it might be interesting? Anyhoo, looking forward to whatever else you write ^^
Author's responseI read your one-shot. I can't believe you took it down! It was excellent! Sad but not overly dramatic. Also, the take on it having been an ex-girlfriend who died is quite underused, so good choice!!
Thanks again for reviewing - it means a lot!
(#) _Amy_Revenge_ 2009-07-20 03:21:39 PMAnd, if you didn't see it yet, I read your FOB fic ^^ And I'm sorry for continuously posting on this one-shot, but they dont have a mail button(that im aware of). Anyway, I have a really good fic too.. It's called Caught Up In This Web. Just in case you want a good laugh on how some teens tend to act ^^
Author's responseCool, thanks!! :D
No, I don't think emails work from here any more, but you can get me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll check out your story, but will have to be tomorrow now (sorry) as I have to be up in 6 hours and I'm exhausted already!!
- Hi there Sassy,
That was so beautifully written. It does make you wonder if at any point Gerard did write a note.
I loved your take on this as I do everything you write.
I hope you were able to get a good night's sleep.
Looking forward to more from you.
