Fanlib.com is sending me a t-shirt. :-) Anyone who was featured gets one. I also got to choose a quote and of course I picked one from Friday Night Lights to put on the back of the shirt. I was going to put one from one of my fics, but all the good ones had a little bit of profanity or were rated pg-17, lol, so I chose Coach's line, "They had a blanket!"

JoeDUDE, tis a far, far more hardcore thing you do than you have ever done before...>.< Love the exchanges between the Holding Cell Foursome, but I don't understand Tyra's weird expectation for Tim to have 'A Collette's In Trouble' homing device. It just seems to be a bit much for me for some weird reason...how can you be there for anybody when technically there's been nobody around for you? >.> <.< I don't get it...heh...but that's my crazy, lovesick fangirl mind talking, I guess.
Too bad you can't stand the Garritys, hehhehheh. XD

PS--Welcome back. :)

LMAO!!! As many times as I want sounds about right. hehehe. I'm sure no one's sad to see Buddy go.... right??

About Tyra & Tim, I'm not sure she expects him to have a "homing device" because she really doesn't want him to have one, you know? She doesn't want anything to do with him anymore. And about the "being there for someone" line, like you said, TWB, Tim doesn't know what it's like because no one has really been there for him. Sounds like that fangirl mind talking too, LMAO! I'm kidding.

Okay, then there has to be something else to the grounds of her dismissal of him besides that, right...? I can understand someone not wanting to be in touch with the dark side of town because it no longer has any benefits or never had any in the first place, but that...it is like asking an orphan to explain to you all the rewards of being in a family, what the key parts of a family are, and so forth. In that regard, Tyra's being quite unrealistic, and she needs to get poked in the head for it. >.<

Weasley, I just got around to reading your latest chapter. The suspense is killing me! What is happening to our poor Tim???

I am really excited that you brought Waverly in though. I think she's really an intriguing character and I don't see a whole lot of fics with her or Smash, so yay! I can't wait to see where it all goes.

I like Waverly, too. She reminds me of a friend at church I had a long time ago who was bipolar, but who ALSO was a friendly person all the time no matter what. I may have never seen her during the bad periods, but at the same time, I don't think it would have changed my perception of her at all. :)

And no, no killing suspense please!! I'm here to entertain people, not end their lives! >.< However, because we are on the subject, I am glad you asked because I love to discuss plot bunnies:

Ever since the end of Season 1, I've been disappointed how they left all the Riggins-related plot holes wide open with no real conclusion, specifically the ones pertaining to alcoholism and no support system whatsoever. In my opinion, I feared this was a recipe that would only add up to Dillon's first suicide cases, not a happy ending.

To that end, I've been pondering how any writer would turn a situation that seems as hopeless as this one completely around so that happy endings can be reached, and the first thing that came to mind is that at least one of the brothers would have to reach the rock-bottom phase. Once a person gets there, there is no real place to go but upwards, especially if they reach a point where they want to have a better life for themselves and are willing to work for it.

That is the spot I will reach with Tim as the end result, I promise you...however, a lot of things will need to be worked out in the meantime. The drinking habit, the need for family and friends with no idea how to obtain them, and the events of May 31, 2007 are obstacles that have to be overcome, but I do promise that there are brighter skies ahead for our favorite fullback. :) That's about all I can say for now, because any more will spoil the fanfiction completely! ;) XD

New fic! New fic!

Where You Wanna Be

It's a crossover with Heroes. More specifically a Matt/Claire story! Hope you all like this first chapter. Although it's a little on the short side.

It sure is!!

Let's make it for... October 5th!!! We'll all read awesome fanfics all day, then watch the season premiere that night.

Stories should happen during the off-season, and only the off-season with any characters you want. Christmas, summer, spring break, birthdays, etc. Don't include anything from season 2 that you know about. You can hint a little, but nothing more. && Pimp this like crazy.

Have fun. I got a few ideas in mind already. haha.

Still spooky as ever, JTate, keep up the good work. :)

P.S.--The fifth chapter of High Water will go up as close to the 5th of October as I can possibly make it, because I'm introducing as many fans to the story as I can. XD Love, TWB.

Thanks! I just kept thinking about the canoe and rafting trips my family has taken and could imagine it would be the kind of thing that Jason and Tim would do that could get them away from everything in Dillon.

Well, I don't know if my schedule will allow me to participate. That gets to be a pretty busy time for me.
