Writing biographies is like answering this question in a job interview: So, tell me about yourself?

I don't know. If you read any astrological profile based on Pisceans, you'll probably have me pegged to a tee. I am one fish, two fish and a lonely blue fish.

See, I told you.

First story I've read on the archive and what a great start. So sad yet heartfelt. They way you write dialogue is great. It seemed very natural and true to the characters.

See you next chapter.

Author's Response: Eeek! I'm going to be all flattered now that you read this one first when there are so many great ones on here, even if I have a bit of a feeling it was mostly a coincidence ;) Glad you seem to like this though, thank you :)

A Distance There Is: Oh that last line was such a heartbreaker. Another beautiful chapter and I love how you pen all this emotion out of Shane.

Author's Response: Thanks a lot, this chapter was one of the hardest things I ever had to write and Shane didn't make any of it easy for me. She's not very helpful in times like these, that one.

For Dear Life: The humor you injected into the middle of this chapter was a great relief. I let out a much needed chuckle. But as it went on, I realized that this story has far more layers than I first thought. You make me want to go back and watch Three Rivers. Great job!

Author's Response: Thanks again! As for layers, if I don't have more than one thing going on in a story, I tend to get bored.

Date: July 21, 2010 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4 - Together Alone pt 1

Together Alone pt 1: It's great how you are slowing revealing what's at the heart of Miranda's issues and it ties together nicely with what I believe the overall theme is.

This chapter was kind of hard to read because it seemed so personal; I guess that's the sign of good writing, when you can touch people in that way.

Can't wait to see how this all concludes.

Author's Response: It was hard to write too, but there's usually something in every chapter that's hard for me to write (whether it's because I don't know how to say something in English or because it's just too emotional for me) and this one was just longer than most so that might be why. But what you said really means a lot. And honestly, it's really sweet of you to take your time to comment on all the chapters and not just the last one, as you read through this and all that. Really, thank you. And as for a conclusion... it's not coming any time soon because I won't be able to stop this one until after at least 15 or 20 chapters or so and the next one shouldn't be too far from being finished.
