Aw, thanks Elfstone. :) You have the right to know that I've been exiled for two weeks, and of course I'm sad about it but don't worry about me, I've found a home in the Young Writers Group.
'Tis the work of Anaum.
wow... thats just... mind blowing.
I could be wrong....I will have to check again.
Hey, do you know if the had mirrors in LOTR??
What is you picture of? I like it!
Yeah. Enjolras and Eponine would be extremely happy together :) Makes me happy to think about :D
Well, I had to rewrite the ending and it was possibly the only way I could do it :P Everyone else who dies has to or the story is messed up :P
Enjolras has one of the most wonderful voices! Men's voices are amazing if used correctly.For a class assignment, I have to rewrite the ending. But since, sadly, both Valjean and Javert have to die to get closure, I decided to write that Eponine and Enjolras don't die and they fall in love :) It makes me happy to save their lives :)
Colm Wilkinson is the most AMAZING Jean Valjean!!!! I also love Javert and Fantine's voice! Marius is an idiot, but he has a good voice too :P I absolutely hate Cosette's voice.... She sounds like a bad opera outcast :P But that is just my opinion :P
"A breath away from where you are... I've come home from so far-"Me too! It is amazing! It's my favorite book and musical! I love Eponine so much I might name one of my future children after her :) She has the most amazing voice ever!
As a lover of the fantasy/adventure genre myself I thought you might be interested in a few very special stories I've read this year. "The Riyria Revelations Series" Michael J. Sullivan, "Red Moon and Black Mountain" by Joy Chant, "The Fourth Realm Travellers Trilogy" by John Twelve Hawks, "The Night Angel Trilogy" by Brent Weeks, and "The Left Hand of God" by Paul Hoffman. Enjoy and READ ON...
I'm going to change it soon, so I thought I'd send it to you. Thanks for being a great Shelfari friend :)A short story:...We all know or knew someone like this.One day, when I was a freshman in high school,I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school.His name was Kyle.It looked like he was carrying all of his books.I thought to myself, why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.I had quite a weekend planned--parties and a football game with my friends’ tomorrow afternoon--so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him.They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt.His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him.He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes.My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear roll down his eye.As I handed him his glasses, I said, "Those guys are jerks. They really should get lives."He looked at me and said, "Hey thanks."There was a big smile on his face. It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude. I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived.As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before.He said he had gone to a private school before now. I would have never hung out with a private school kid before.We talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books.He turned out to be a cool kid.I asked him if he wanted to play a little football with me and my friends.He said yes.We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought the same of him.Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again.I stopped him and said, "Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday."He just laughed and handed me half the books....Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends.When we were seniors, we began to think about college. Kyle decided on Georgetown and I was going to Duke.I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem.He was going to be a doctor and I was going for business on a football scholarship.Kyle was valedictorian of our class. I teased him all the time about being a nerd.He had to prepare a speech for graduation. I was so glad it wasn't me having to get up there and speak.Graduation day:I saw Kyle. He looked great.He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school. He filled out and actually looked good in glasses.He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him. Boy, sometimes I was jealous... Today was one of those days.I could see that he was nervous about his speech. So, I smacked him on the back and said, "Hey, big guy, you'll be great!"He looked at me with one of those looks--the really grateful one--and smiled."Thanks," he said.As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began."Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years.Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach.… but mostly, your friends…I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them.I am going to tell you a story."I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told everyone about the first day we met.He had planned to kill himself over the weekend.He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn't have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home.He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile."Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable."I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment.I saw his Mom and Dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize its depth...."Never underestimate the power of your actions.With one small gesture, you can change a person's life. For better or for worse. God puts us all in each others lives to impact one another in some way. Look for God in others."Show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a friend."We need old friends to help us grow old and new friends to help us stay young." -Letty Cottin Pogrebin"Silences make the real conversations between friends. Not the saying but the never needing to say is what counts.""Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.""The hand of friendship has no color.""You don't have to see the color to think it's beautiful.""Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars." -Les Brown
Your welcome. And good luck with your other stories. I wouldn't be surprised if one day I found a book with your name on it's front cover :) And I'd always be glad to be a part of your group.Thanks, I really liked your profile quotes before, too.
I just read your good-bye post in the Hunger Games group; your really going to stop writing for District Eight? I don't know why, but, in a way, it's hard to believe. I just fell in love with your writing. And please, don't take this the wrong way. I understand your reasons and I'm not questioning your motives, I just never really thought you would ever stop. Sorry, I know I'm rambling again. I just had to say something.
Oh, that's cool. Where did you find it?
