Ah, so this is where our esteemed KP goddess came from. I do like your OC stories, they give us a better insite into the "less exciting" jobs on Joe bases. And I do have to say, on Twitter, Shortstack never fails to amuse me.
Another good story, I think I'm almost finished with your list. : )

Hmmm yeah going from the Joes' base to ordinary civiy life woudl be one hell of a shock... Poor Annie.
Love! And sorry I did translate it the Chinese... I couldn't help it.

so that's where the arashikage temple got its picture of tommy
annie rocks, not sue-ish at all as far as i'm concerned and i love that her family is so proud of her being part of such a top secret project, awesome little spinoff of 'order up'

I loved this! I loved that you were able to take a normal person, put her in the Joe mindset, then take her home again and show how she had changed! I'm going to have to go catch "Order Up" now. :) Thank you!

I translated... Thank you. I've learned how to swear in Chinese. What is happening to this young generation? Don't tell my mom I translated that. o.o
Loved it! Sweet and humorous. Taking a page out of Tunnel Rat's book... Hehehe...
TCOS (That sounds like tacos...)

Ah, cute. Family is such a nice thing (at least once you left the house for longer than a month ;-) ).
It's a very nice piece about the private life of a soldier and I'm starting to like Annie more and more. Honestly, you made one of the few really good OCs around. Believe me, I don't see her getting anywhere near a Mary Sue anytime soon. Self-indulgent I can't say, but you sure indulge me with her stories ;-).

...I translated it. I am impressed, madam.
My grandma has a Fireman hunk of the month calender. Kind of cute and disturbing at the same time. Of course, the men of G.I. Joe are ridiculosly hot, and any red-blooded female could agree that they are eminantly ogle-worthy.
So Annie took the Holy Photo, did she? "Bows Head" Even the mighiest enlightened ones have little defense against an enthusiastic Slobber Attack.
Wait staff are some of the most skilled actors and liars in the world. True fact. You have to be to not choke the ever loving hell out of the customers. I love Ma. She reminds me of my mom more than a litte.
Love the comparison of Beach Head to a train. Makes sense. Both can cause incredible amounts of damage, are loud, and can't be stopped by much of anything.

Great story. I loved Annie's reaction to being home and discovering the letters on the wall as well as the realization that the Pit is home to her now. Of course Mama Gorshin would pull information out of her.
I'm guessing that it's Chinese you wrote. I read Japanese and I couldn't make heads or tails of it, especially since there were no Japanese particles. When I got to the part that it was something that Tunnel Rat said, it made more sense why I couldn't read it. Darn you for taunting me. Could you PM me the meaning? It'll save me the trouble of asking one of my Chinese friends.

i would think she would run and tackle beachehead in tears saying thank god im back! save me from my family and break down lol
| Karama9 11/8/10 . chapter 1
First, I have to say that I want a picture of Storm Shadow pinned to the ground by a happy, licky, drooly Junkyard. Because the fact he could toss him twenty feet in the air if he really wanted to and doesn't only makes it even funnier.
That was grand. I think it makes perfect sense that Annie's old life seems foreign to her now. Acclimatization can do strange things.
Thanks for sharing this!
| TinySprite 11/8/10 . chapter 1
I love this! Poor Annie, that is not something anyone would like coming home to. I'm a little curious why no one demanded to know what she said, but that's just me.
And now we know who took that picture that in the future will be kept in a temple dedicated to a certain ninja clan!

GI Joe where even the cooks are crazy. Loved seeing Annie go home, get questioned and fussed over, realize she missed her "normal" life and go back right into the same stuff she thought she'd be glad to get away from. Loved it.
