Congratulations to all the winners!

If the winners could put their stories up soon, it'll give bannermakers enough time to make the August 25th deadline ;D

By Blonde Bella

Posted 09 Aug 07

So can everyone post their stories now?

For the banner part of the challenge, do we email banners to you, Kaiwynn, or to the winners?

By Alcyone

Posted 10 Aug 07

*stares* Oh my goodness. YES! I can't stop grinning now! Congratulations to the other two! I can't wait to read the other stories. And for anyone who cares, my story's now up.

By Kaiwynn

Posted 10 Aug 07

Right, you should email them to me.

By Marauder by Midnight

Posted 10 Aug 07

And we can only make one banner or can we do all three? xD

By Kaiwynn

Posted 11 Aug 07

You can do all three if you like :)

I know this is REALLY off topic, but can someone tell me what a Beta-reader is? Maybe I'm just dimwitted, but I really don't know! I saw some people saw they are one, and I was curious to what that means...

By Blonde Bella

Posted 16 Aug 07

A beta is someone who proof-reads and advise you on your story.

where can we make the banners?

By Kaiwynn

Posted 20 Aug 07

Well, usually people make them with photomanipulation programs like The Gimp, Photoshop, or Paint Shop Pro.

Posted 21 Aug 07

Ok, where is everyone? I updated my story like, two days ago, and it's still at the top of the Most Recent list. Not cool, I need something to read. School starts next Wednesday, guys! I need to read while I can...

By awsomealice94

Posted 21 Aug 07

school is starting soon, has already for some people, and some are going on some last minute trips. maybe thats why not a lot of people are on

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 21 Aug 07

I know, I start next week. *shudders* And I guess I did go on vacation last week.. but still! update!

By awsomealice94

Posted 21 Aug 07

lol. i am anways, lol i start school on the 4th, so i have a while, kinda

By Blonde Bella

Posted 21 Aug 07

Ugh, I start Monday. Ick. And, I'll admit, I won't be able to write pretty much at all after about a month of school.

By Marauder by Midnight

Posted 21 Aug 07

Started yesterday. Meh.

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 21 Aug 07

I know. Writing is going to be tricky. I'm taking a full "AP" course load, which basically means tons of essays. I'll be too tired to write anything else. Yuck. And jees, you started early.

By Alcyone

Posted 22 Aug 07

Don't complain; I started the seventh. Which means my updates will take while. Three AP courses=lots of work. There are a bunch of other stories here. Unless you've read all of them (and if you have I don't know whether to admire or be frightened of you), read some of the older ones. There are lots of good works that are no longer on the Most Recent list. I can't wait to see the banners. Espcially mine, lol.

Yeah, I figured out there were a bunch of new ones after I was done complaining... oops. Thats what I get for for complaining! And yeah, can't wait for the banners either... I hope someone makes one for me. And yikes, what grade are you in? I'm in eleventh, and I've got two, not counting advanced chemistry, which could be an AP course if our school wasn't too cheap to get the test... I hope you still get to write, I love reading your stories.

By Blonde Bella

Posted 22 Aug 07

I have honors geometry second semester (AP isn't available) and then the most homework giving teacher at the school for reading. Science and Social Studies are just classes, no distingishment (there isn't an advanced option of any sort). I'm only in 8th grade, so I have to go to the high school for my geometry class. Not to mention that I'm in a trillion clubs. Already. And school hasn't even started yet.

By Kayla Ariev

Posted 23 Aug 07

Yeah, I'm not in school any more so ... stop complaining. At least you get a summer vacation. I work full time -- even in the summer. I don't have homework -- but still ... trust me, enjoy school while you can!!

By TheLionAndTheLamb

Posted 23 Aug 07

I'm not complaining here, but I just want to say that I'm taking a load of hard classes this school year, so if I don't update very often, that's probably why.

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 23 Aug 07

I think we all can understand that. I'm trying to get all my updates in while I can. But I am complaining... that's the nice thing about one more year of highschool... I'm not in the real world yet.

By awsomealice94

Posted 23 Aug 07

ya, i was going to have to go to the high school to take advanced L.A/english class cause of my writeing, but i really doing wanna, lol

By Eternitys_charm

Posted 23 Aug 07

im not complaining much, i started last week so I got used to schoo, but I do have trouble updating because of it...but then again who wont... i'm taking two AP classes, and honnors english, my teacher loves my writting (she saw my writting here at the Archives -she loves twilight.) and medical courses and IM BARELY A SOPHOMORE!

By Blonde Bella

Posted 23 Aug 07

I had open house today. Ick. So dull. So predictable. Can it be December already (My next trip to Disneyworld). Or next summer vacation (Maybe another trip to Disneyworld)

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 23 Aug 07

Ach, sophomore year wasn't fun. I took honors english too, but our school doesn't offer AP until your Junior year... this year. Ew.

By Kayla Ariev

Posted 24 Aug 07

Dude -- Megan -- I'm going to Disney World in December!! How freakin' cool is that? I've had the trip booked since, like, February. (There was a deal on airfare -- nonstop, roundtrip from Portland for only $200!!)

By Blonde Bella

Posted 24 Aug 07

When in December?

By Kayla Ariev

Posted 24 Aug 07

First week -- the 2nd to the 6th.

By Blonde Bella

Posted 24 Aug 07

Oh, cool. I'll be there 15-23.

By Kayla Ariev

Posted 25 Aug 07

Ah, yes, I don't have to wait for "winter break." I can go during the off-days. Literally, November sweeps ends at work and two days later I'm flying to Orlando. I can hardly wait ... Disney World rocks.

By Blonde Bella

Posted 25 Aug 07

I get to miss the last week of school before we go on our pathetic little winter break. Woo!

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 26 Aug 07

It's past August 25. Right? It would be really embarrassing if I got the date screwed up... Nope, my computer says it's the 26th. Can't wait to see the banners... hopefully I get one.

By Eternitys_charm

Posted 27 Aug 07

..almost no one reads my stories that I update...*screamed* IS ANYONE HERE...*waits* ...*echo* ...lol

By Alice Clone

Posted 28 Aug 07

oh yea...i start today technically and i have two essay to write by 7;40 and i have a swim meet and im taking AP US history AP Language and Composition astronomy Honors Alegebra II Notetaking and World lit...FACE SLACKERS!! and im a junior....so .....yea...OH AND I SWIM VARSITY...sorry really tired and just felt like venting..lmao

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 28 Aug 07

Alice Clone, I feel your pain. I'm a junior t0o.. but the only thing that I'm in that remotely resembles a sport is marching band-- which is enough to make me want to kill myself-- but I'm taking AP history too... ew. So.... yeah. Hey, did anyone else notice that everyone writing here is smart? Well, taking advanced classes... I wouldn't call myself smart, exactly.

By Blonde Bella

Posted 28 Aug 07

Ugh. Anyone know how to be in two places at once?

By TheLionAndTheLamb

Posted 28 Aug 07

I'm a sophmore, but I'm taking a lot of challenging classes, too. Try taking Honors Algebra 2, AP NSL, Honors English, TWO science classes(bio and chem. BOTH honors),Honors Latin 3(SKIPPING Latin 2), Russian History, WHILE doing Cross Country. Yea. SO if you don't see me very often, you can kind of guess why...

By Alcyone

Posted 28 Aug 07

28th. I can't wait to see the banners! Good luck to all who entered.

By Alicecullen

Posted 29 Aug 07

Okay, when did this turn into a chat room about how many AP courses we're taking? JK! I'm taking three. But anyway, if you guys have time to leave all these messages, I hope you have time to update your stories! All of you are great authors!! :)

By Eternitys_charm

Posted 29 Aug 07

Wow TheLionAndTheLam you sound like me! I'm a sophomore too and I have Algebra 2 also -honors, Honors Medical English, Kenisiology-i think i spelled it wrong- medical honors, biology medical, Spanish 2 Honors, History AP med!

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 29 Aug 07

Yeah, I did all the fun honors courses my sophmore year too.. I think I hate school. And sorry, absolutely no time to update. I'm going to have to write during freakin' lunch if I want to update before winter break. I'm done complaining now though, because I'm starting to sound like a broken record. Today was the first day, and I made it through with minimal damage. I had to drop a science course though... it had a bunch of scummers in it that didn't care... it led to gum in my hair. I hate cruel people!

By Blonde Bella

Posted 29 Aug 07

It's the 3rd day of school, and I've already had homework everyday. Also, does anyone have any idea how to be in 2 places at once? My stinkin yearbook meetings keep overlapping with tennis practice. Oi vei. (I didn't spell that right, did I?)

By Kayla Ariev

Posted 30 Aug 07

It's "Oy Vey." Yiddish is weird. And the only way I know to be in two places at once isn't real ... unless you know where to find a time-turner like Hermione's in "Prisoner of Azkaban."

By Blonde Bella

Posted 30 Aug 07

Yiddish is weird, but it fits. I'm jewish, but I don't look jewish (Except my nose), so I always get weird looks when I use yiddish. Well, off to do homework. Yay?

By Blonde Bella

Posted 30 Aug 07

Just wrote an essay on why I should be 'Clubs Editor' on my school yearbook staff; the teacher said a quick 5-7 sentence paragraph would be fine. Me, I do a full page.

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 30 Aug 07

I just wrote a 7 paragraph essay on five positive attributes that I posses that will help me succeed in school. Gotta love Honors English, huh?

By Blonde Bella

Posted 30 Aug 07

I wish I could skip a year in English. But they're done by grade until high school, not course. Totally blows.

By Eternitys_charm

Posted 30 Aug 07

I have to write a three page essay on Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates, and its due on MONDAY! oh well, i do love writting, just not homework...

By Blonde Bella

Posted 30 Aug 07

Oh, and I read a creepy story today. Really good, just creepy. Well, wouldn't be another year of AIG Comm if I didn't read a creepy but good story! In 6th grade I read two that I can't remember the names of, one about a smart kid living under a dictatorship, and at a certain age they have to take a test and if they do too well, they kill them. Reflecting on the writing style, it may have been a Shirley Jackson story; I'm not sure. The other one in 6th was about a woman who owned a bed and breakfast that had only ever had 2 guests, and they never checked out. Taxedermy (Did I spell that right? Of course not) is creepy. 7th grade was 'The Most Dangerous Game'. That was totally awesome. Afterward we had to write a sequel to it, and it was much more suited to my writing style than most of what I've written here. And today was Shirley Jackson's 'The Lottery'. Haunting, just haunting.

Posted 31 Aug 07

Today, I wrote and produced the entire 11 O'Clock News ... tomorrow, I'm going to do it again.

By Blonde Bella

Posted 31 Aug 07

YAY for long weekends! Boo for all your friends being out of time!

By awsomealice94

Posted 31 Aug 07

Blonde Bella- omg, the Lottery. i read that last year in my L.A class. disturbing, just freaky. then we had to actually act it out. we were all so good it creeped me out, especially cause i had to play the women who had the black dot. *shudders*
