Alyssa tells how she escaped the evil nasty Ruins. Will she be welcomed with opened arms or kicked to the curb? Depends on the person you ask...
(#) IeroMyHero 2008-03-28 07:52:34 AMUm...wow, just wow. Uh-may-zing chapter.
I'm extremely confused now, though.
I mean, I thought her story was believable, for the most part. And the way you write her makes her seem trustworthy, but I guess that could be a technique. Anyway, shape shifting to me, has always sounded like a suspicious power. I don't know why, but maybe it's because you never really know who you're talking to... But her story was good. It's just the "it's like my legs knew the way." that kind of bugs me.
And in any case, I just...feel like Frank's right about The Flaw. Or maybe it's because it's Frank and I feel sorta obliged to agree with him.
Well, I hope things clear up a bit more soon. Can't wait 'til you update again, but no pressure if you're busy. Take your time.
Oh and by the way, I heard God Or Julie. They're pretty damn good!
Author's responseThank you!^^
Lol "Or maybe it's because it's Frank and I feel sorta obliged to agree with him" Everyone feels that way, it's cute xD
I agree with you about her power though, but maybe thats because of X-Men?
Glad you like them, they really need more fans.
Thanks so much for reviewing

that was a brilliant chapter
not sure if I believe her, but i guess that's just because I don't want to believe her...
Author's responseThank you a lot ;)
Nobody wants to believe her lol, we'll see what happens in later chapters!
Thanks for reviewing < 3333333
(#) asherschick 2008-03-28 10:21:49 AMI just loved the way you wrote this chapter, Frank is so vocal in this. At least in his thoughts. I mean, I could easily hear him talking inside my head, the sarcasm and still, the heart-break in his voice.
Hmmm, about Alyssa, I might be prejudiced about her but after that explanation, I have to agree with Frank's THE FLAW. And her power is shape-shifting? Gahhh, the guys are just so naive, how could they all trust her like that, in the blink of an eye!
Another conspiracy theory has started to shape in my head as I read the lines when she said she could transform into people she has seen. You know Peter from Heroes, what if one of the Ruins is like Peter and he adopted Alyssa's powers? Ahh, I might have ruined your surprise now, if there was one :P Just don't respond to this rhetorical question, we like the suspense xP
Whatever, just update when you're not so busy. Since the week is over and I'm a tad more relaxed,that's what I'm gonna do =)
And God or Julie? We really do have very very close taste in music =D
Author's responseAww, thanks. I made him have more of a say in this chapter (although he does in every one, since he is the main character and its in his POV), since he was the one most bothered by the whole return of Alyssa. I'm glad I transmitted just what i wanted to: despressed and sarcastic, since he's pretty much used to being that way by now. Thats where the whole "coffee, anyone?" came in! haha
Frank doesn't trust her for obvious reasons, but she was best friends with them all before. It a complicated situation, really.
I haven't seen Heroes ever so I'm not so sure i know what you mean by Peter's power. I know who he is, the main character, right? But i don't know what he or anyone else does =( I seriously need to watch it this summer! lol
God and Julie have gorgeous songs! Yep, almost identical taste in music! Great minds think alike... hahaha
(#) randomreaction 2008-03-29 06:00:06 PMomg! AMAZING story so far.
where to start..
in this chapter, we're all obviously rooting for frank, but i can't help to NOT trust Alyssa. It seems too good to be true. For the her to get out so easily is just suspicious..you would have thought there would have been more measures taken to keep her imprisoned, it seems likely they knew her power, or maybe theu thought she had give up on trying to escape..
i HONESTLY dont know.
but i can just imagine frank finding out that she is PURE EVIL or something, but obviously no-one would believe him, not even gerard.
all i know is that alyssa is making little frankie unhappy...
>=| and she has to go
oj, but update asap please!
Author's responseThank you! Glad you think so ^^
haha everyone thinks she's a liar. We'll find out in future chapters! xD
Thanks for reviewing!
(#) shyflyhigh 2008-03-30 01:53:34 PMWOW good chapter the whole war thing reminds me of Civil war between the confiders and union soilders because they kinda alike in a way but 1 wants the stone but cant have and 1 has the stone but give it kinda like the Civil War but with slaves 1 wants but 1 doesnt do you get the dreft and i do think she is a lair because she can sharp shift come on that might not be her your talkin to and that i dont like but then started to then she told the story and almost all the way through i did think she was tellin the truth but thet 1 line got me to think she is a lair...but update soon plzzz!!!!:)
Author's responseLol your comment looks like you said it without stopping to take a breath xD
Interesting comparison, with the whole civil war thing, and i could say you're right. But then most wars are like that; someone always wants what another one has, whatever it may be.
I'll update soon ;) Thanks for reviewing!
