Author's Note: Hey there everyone, Thanks for choosing to read my BraceFace fanfic. This will be my first fanfic about this show so be tame. I just decided to dust the cobwebs off the pretty much dead Braceface fanfic section here, and post a Sharon/Connor fic since there's really 0 of this couple. Come on I know I can't be the only fan of it.
I'll say this now I'm not perfect in punctuation, and this might have some grammar issues. So please don't expect the absolute best with me. That being said, this fanfic is not one for Sharon/Alden fans, although it will deal with them. I also did a poster for this pic on DA so feel free to check it out.
This fic was mostly inspired by the Lizzie McGuire show, and bits of other shows mixed.
DISCLAIMER: I don't own Braceface it rightly belongs to Melissa Clark, I'm just a fan.
Sharon punched her alarm clock, causing it to shut off like she did every morning. She slowly got out from under the covers, with a yawn and a stretch. As her pets stormed downstairs, she went into the daily routine of brushing her hair, teeth, and showering.
As she hurried down the stairs wearing her usual jeans and t-shirt, she complained about the same thing she had been for the past few days. "I can't believe he made me wear braces again after wearing them for two whole years." She complained as she sat at the kitchen table.
"Please tell me she's not complaining about her metal mouth again." Josh groaned, as he slammed his forehead onto the table. "That's even worse than days you break out."
"MOM!" Sharon yelled out.
"Now I don't see the point of you continuing to complain about why Dr. Hertz did this to you. He knows best, and as a doctor for the fifth time; I tell you to get over it." Ms. Spitz said, as she fixed her tousled ponytail. She was obviously rushing off to work this morning.
"Whoa mom, is there something going on at work today?" Sharon asked, suddenly changing from her whiny mood.
"No time to talk now, you think you can take Josh to school today." Ms. Spitz quickly replied, as she put on her red blazer. "Thanks sweetie I owe you one." She added as she rushed out with her mug.
"Now where in the world could she be going in such a hurry?" Sharon wondered as she saw her mother quickly pull out of the driveway.
"You're not going to really take me to school are you?" Josh said slowly, giving Sharon a look that clearly said 'No way.'
"Hey what's the big deal? You know what I would've given to walk to school with an eighteen year old at your age." Sharon told him crossing her arms.
"Maybe it's the fact you're my sister and it'd be totally embarrassing." Josh said finishing up his drink, and grabbing his backpack. "I'll take my skateboard instead."
"Good Point, just remember to wear a helmet. I don't want to hear a voice ringing in my ears that your brains fell out." Sharon joked, but then felt disgusted at herself. She was talking too much like her brothers already.
-Elkford High School-
Sharon arrived at school grounds with a sigh. "This is it, deja vu back to the old days." She pressed her lips together as an attempt to hide her new torture.
Someone suddenly sighed next to her. "To think this will be our last year here huh." Alyson stood next to her brushing her long tawny brown hair. Ever since the tenth grade she decided to let it grow past her waist.
"Yeah, but you know what really stinks. I wish Maria were here with us at graduation year. The last time I talked to her, she mentioned she tried to take a break this year from her foreign exchange. To be honest though, we've hardly seen here ever since she decided on boarding school." Sharon said with a hint of spite in her tone.
"Wow I can't tell if you just really miss her, or are jealous." Alyson stopped messing with her hair, deciding to simply let it be. "Hmm... maybe I should get a perm instead." She said randomly changing the subject. "O-oh sorry I didn't mean to." She quickly cowered after Sharon gave her a look.
"Hey! You should ask Brock if Maria told him anything instead." Alyson quickly said in her usual excited voice.
"And what makes you think Maria would tell him, instead of me. We've been bffs since forever." Sharon answered her suggestion abruptly.
Suddenly the school bell rang, and the storm of students started to pour inside. As Alyson parted with Sharon to get to class, Sharon was left deep in thought.
'Could it actually be that Maria has been phoning Brock, and not me? It's true I haven't heard from her in months.' Sharon thought.
/Back in the tenth grade it all took place in just the last semester. It first started when Maria won a free trip to Hawaii with her family. It was over in Hawaii, that she met up with a bunch of daredevil surfing teens. Not only did she make friends with them faster than it takes a nerve to go through your system, but they were the ones that introduced her to the private boarding school that's connected to a college too.
After Maria returned from her trip, not only did she come back changed with surfer bleached hair, and a tan; her total ambitions changed as well. All she could talk about was how cool Hawaii was and how cool the people were there. The thing she rattled the most about was the private school. It seemed like with every passing week she had to call at least one of the surfers from Hawaii to find out more about it. Afterwards she would talk about it throughout lunch. It was either about how the school focused more on athletically talented teens, or the fact that she had a chance to join their team; which meant traveling abroad to compete in various countries.
The last I heard from her was that she was studying abroad in Bangkok, and that she was getting fluent in her Thai, and martial arts. /
"There's no way she could forget about Elkford in only two years." Sharon told herself aloud.
"If she's busy she can." A familiar voice that turned out to be Connor's answered her. He was now standing besides her, most likely on his way to class. "Maria was the type of person that got wrapped up in her game. It's not that she means to forget, but look around its senior year; nearly everyone is busy planning something." He said giving his usual tact of wisdom.
"Yeah, but can't I just wish that for our last year we could spend it together. It was hard enough to say goodbye to her when she switched schools." Sharon said a bit cheered up.
"Nah you can wish, but the point of it coming true is going to be the hard one to swallow." Brock said after popping up out of nowhere; wiping his mouth. He was obviously drinking from the fountain.
"Does everyone around here know what I'm talking about?" Sharon yelled annoyed, as she stomped her foot.
Connor, and Brock looked at each other, then back at Sharon. "Just about." Their calm reaction resulting in Sharon scowling, and going to her class.
"It looks like I'm the only one that actually still cares about friendship." She said softly once she took her seat.
"No my little b-cup, it's because you're still not facing the fact that it's time to grow up." A voice next to her said, making Sharon inwardly groaned at just hearing it. ' Why is she still here?' She thought, as she looked up to face Nina, her arch enemy.
"If you want to grow up, then stop acting like a spoiled clique-" Sharon started arguing back when Nina interrupted her.
"Oh wow, B-cup is Braceface again." She said loudly, as the whole class started to laugh.
It was after Sharon had her braces removed, that Nina began to call her that new name. Sharon thought it was even worse then the last. At first she thought what the big deal was, not everyone in the world could obviously afford implants like Nina did. It took a girl like Nina however, to start calling Sharon names exclusively.
The new name got it's beginnings back in the ninth grade girl's locker room ; where Nina took Sharon's clothes and threw them across the hall. The worst thing possible happened, when a group of the school's senior jocks happened to come upon Sharon's underwear. To make matters worse, it took a wet Sharon, with only a towel wrapped around her to retrieve it. The end result; Nina texted a picture of a towel-wrapped Sharon to the entire student body.
Now that she was calling her Braceface again, a part of her felt relieved that the other name was put to rest.
"I'm betting against you Braceface." Nina continued as she crossed her legs.
"Against the fact that it's senior year; do you really think Alden and you are going to last outside of high school? Next year will be college; you're most probably going to get separated you know." Nina said as she gave out one of her evil smirks.
"What makes you so sure that'll happen Nina?" Sharon glared back, tempted to start a face-down.
"Duh, everybody but everybody knows that once high school is over, we all go our own way. Face it Spitz, did you really think Maria was going to go to the same college you'd go to, or take your same classes? Friends forever or not, no one is going to give up what they want, just to stay together. Grow up and realize the friends you have now, in the future will be referred to 'Oh yeah he or she was one of my old high school buddies.' Nina said dramatically acting out a scene.
"If you believe that so much Nina, then that means the same thing will happen to you too." Sharon answered her weakly, starting to give into Nina's taunts.
"Um excuse me, why do you think I only make friends with the popular or rich people. We people that have good names, always mingle, and bump into each other in the future. Fame and popularity always tie to each other, unlike freaks like you." She finished with a humph.
As much as Sharon tried to ignore her, what Nina said seemed so true.
Sharon was in a daze as she was going down the lunch food aisle. Her thoughts were on what Nina had said earlier in class. Since then, she had avoided bumping into Alden. She thought it'd be best to deal with him after school, that way the breaks or bells wouldn't interrupt them. This though she'd had forgotten; there was no way avoiding him at lunch.
Suddenly she felt a tap on her shoulder. It turned out to be the one person she really didn't feel like seeing at the moment.
Alden looked at her with a look that was either worried, or a bit angry. "Hey where's your head, I've been calling you for practically a whole minute now. You just stayed standing here zoning out." He said, then looking at her empty food tray. "You're not becoming an anorexic again are you?"
Sharon blinked out of her daze. "I just got a lot of things on my mind, that's all. Quit overreacting." She said as she subconsciously pushed away his hand on her shoulder, and walked to an empty table.
"Have a lot on your mind? Don't tell me it's Maria again" Alden said sitting down next to her.
Sharon angrily ripped open her spoon bag to eat the little food she had on her tray. "Actually this time it's not, for your relief."
"It's about senior year." She said turning to him.
"Yeah I know, I've got tons of games to plan out. Coach says we have to make this last year our best, in honor of the school and to prepare our future. He mentioned there was even going to be a talent scout coming to one of our games. It's going to be a big help for my athlete's scholarship too. If it pulls through, you know what that means; UCLA here I come!" Connor said excited as he dozed down some soda.
"UCLA, wait where did that come from? You never mentioned it before." Sharon said quickly, confused by the sudden news.
"Oh yeah, sorry I never mentioned it. Coach did give us some brochures of colleges in Canada. Phillip though told me about other colleges that'll work better for me. With me being a in a band, modeling, and on a hockey team, it turned out UCLA would be the best; I already sent my applications there. Depending on how the scout turns out, I might get in on an athlete's scholarship, and play for one of the top teams. With it being in LA and all, I might even go pro in hockey, or in show-biz." Alden explained with a far-off look in his eyes. Sharon could tell he'd been planning this for a while.
"You planned all this without even telling me. When exactly were you planning to mention it, at prom. That is, if you'll even be there." Sharon told him, arms crossed fighting back anger and sadness.
"No not prom, what kind of guy do you think I am? It's just you haven't even decided where you want to go yet so I thought." Alden said slowly.
"You thought you'd make your choice as far away as LA. Is it intentional that you want to leave everyone you know behind?" Sharon said angry, pushing her tray aside.
"Hey wait, I wasn't planning on that!" Alden said quickly defending himself. "There are plenty of colleges in California, you can go to too. Think about it: California, Hollywood, just the two of us. It'll be the coolest thing ever." Alden said putting an arm across her shoulders.
Sharon smiled at the thought, and then her thoughts landed on something. "Just the two of us? You mean Brock too right." Sharon said turning to him.
"Nope, I'm heading towards New York guys." Brock said as he joined them at the table, apparently having figured out the topic.
"New York!" Sharon answered her eyes going wide. "Why, aren't you two both in hockey, and music?"
"Yeah, but each of us want to land a label. We thought that trying out in different cities would increase our chances. Besides I so want to go to New York instead of Cali. It might be cool for my Cali-boy here, but me, I want to go urban. Plus Maria's school is affiliated with New York so we'd meet up more there then here." Brock said lying back casually as always.
"Wait Maria, goes to New York instead of here. How come she never told me about it?" Sharon asked him.
"O-Oh I thought you knew already." Brock said fixing his glasses.
"Let me get this straight. Each and everyone one of you already made their plans, and I'm the only one who's JUST hearing of it." Sharon said getting up from her seat. "That's it, I had enough!" She said storming off.
"Hey Sharon wait!" Alden said after her, when Brock held him back.
"Leave her go dude; you don't want to mess with her in that mood." Brock said as he continued eating.
The rest of Sharon's classes were harder to come by. She shared half of them with Alden. It was hard enough to ignore him sitting in the same room, but twice as hard ignoring the notes he sent her. After school was finally over, Sharon had decided to go somewhere Alden wouldn't know she'd be. Not her house or her one of her friends, not at the laundry mat either. She was going to Toronto. That was where the university that her brother Adam was in, along with his fiancée Hannah.
Sharon thought how happily her brother, and soon to be sister-in-law were together, still in Canada without such a hassle. They still traveled home easily on the weekends, and holidays. It was like they were still nearby everyone they knew. Why couldn't Maria, Brock and Alden see that? They were talented, they could easily excel in any college. Why go so far away, and separated from each other.
Sharon stopped in her tracks. She was walking home, but it was then she wondered how she could even get to Toronto. Even though it was still in Canada, it was still a fourteen hour drive away. No way would her mom drive her there. Unless...
Sharon rang the doorbell for what seemed like the millionth time. Connor had to be inside. She would call him, but her phone had just run out of minutes, so she was out of luck.
Connor finally opened the door to reveal his disheveled appearance. He was shirtless; hair tousled, and wasn't wearing his glasses. Once he realized it was her, he quickly shut the door. "Hang on a minute." He answered behind the door, in a muffled tone.
Sharon just stood there, stunned. It was the first time Connor had shut the door on her, and it was the first time she thought anyone else besides his mother saw him shirtless. 'What is he doing in there?' She thought as she heard some rustling, making her jump to one conclusion. 'Could Alyson be there?' She thought as she quickly tossed the thought aside. 'There was no way a guy like Connor would be alone with someone shirtless. Right?' She asked herself.
Connor then came out, with a royal blue turtle neck sweater on. Sharon couldn't help but notice it looked good on him...too good. "Are you going on a date or something?" She asked smiling.
"What?... No, I have an appointment with my ear, nose and throat doctor. Afterwards, I have some people I have to meet." Connor glared back at Sharon's giggles.
"By people you mean Alyson right." Sharon laughed, not being able to imagine Connor meeting anyone else.
"No Sharon, other people you don't know. I met them while attending the Astronomers, Philosophers and Historians circle." Connor said as he went to his computer.
'Oh that's right; Connor joined this club a year ago. I remember him being really excited about something for once.' Sharon thought as she recalled the memory. She was a bit sad at first by not being Connor's only best friend anymore, but was glad he met other people. Those people being guys made it much better for him.
"So, I guess you're kind of busy to help me out then." Sharon said sadly.
Connor looked away from his computer, back at her. "You need help in something, you know I guess I can always cancel and reschedule my...agh." Connor got interrupted by Sharon's tight squeeze, cutting off his air supply.
"Great, you're a lifesaver, let's go." Sharon said dragging him out the door.
-British Columbia Airport-
"Did I ever tell you, how great of a friend you are?" Sharon said grabbing her plane ticket.
"Only about the thousandth time Sharon." Connor answered annoyed grabbing his credit card back.
Sharon looked at him, while he opened his wallet. She found him so lucky to get a job as a customer service representative at an internet, TV, and cell phone company, while she merely worked at a fast food center. Being a whiz brings some big perks in life. He had his own credit card, cell phone, laptop, gaming and music systems; not to mention a car. Comparing them to herself, the only thing she had for herself was her cell phone. Both her computer and game systems she had to share with Josh.
She was fortunate to have him as a friend, and pay her a flight ticket.
"Thanks for coming with me Connor." Sharon said as she looked down at the ticket, gripping it firmly.
Connor looked at her display, and frowned. "Come on." He said slowly, putting a hand on her shoulder. "We have to board."
When they boarded the plane, as everyone was settling their luggage's, Sharon and Connor sat in their seats. As Sharon looked out the side window, Connor turned to her and asked.
"So I just have one question, did he break up with you again?" His brows furrowed.
"No, he didn't. We...we just had a fight...actually it was me more that had a fight with him." Sharon said slowly.
"I'm sure you had a reason though." Connor answered her, as he went looking for the plane's headphones.
Once she heard Connor defend her, she couldn't hold it back any longer and decided to tell him EVERYTHING.
Sharon couldn't tell if it was the flight that was short, or if it was her that talked too much. Either way it sooner or later the plane landed. Sharon felt like she wasn't even done with her explanation, but as they got off the plane she could tell by Connor's expression that he knew enough and understood.
"So, you're not only upset by Maria being so far away. You're also mad at Connor for making decisions without telling you first. Then now, it seems like he's forcing you to go to California. That even though it seems like a good idea, you can't help but wonder why he can't go to a college here instead, making everything easier. To top it all off, because of all this you feel like you're at crossroads or have come at a dead end." Connor concluded as he called a taxi.
Sharon smiled; Connor was the only one who seemed to understand her perfectly. "So what do you think I should do?" She asked when the taxi pulled up.
"Ah you got me Sharon, if I tell you an answer it'd be like forcing you to do something you don't really want. As much as you may hate that I say it, but this is your decision." Connor answered.
"Ugh that's what I was afraid of." Sharon said as she laid her head on the cab window, while Connor told the cab where they were headed.
"How are you not in a mess like this?" Sharon asked him wondering how Connor was so calm, and not going through something similar. "Are you leaving Elkford too?" She asked.
"Me nah, I'm staying right here. Why leave? The college right here in British Columbia has one of the greatest Astronomers Planetariums classes. They also have other classes of video game design, and Philosophy. It's just what I need right here. I'm not interested in cities like Hollywood, or New York." Connor said lying back in the seat.
Sharon frowned, if only Alden thought more like Connor. The taxi finally stopped at its destination. When Sharon looked out, she realized it wasn't at the university.
"What the?" She said in shock. She saw the tons of tents, booths, the carousels, the Ferris wheels, and other attractions. It was a fair.
As she was about to ask Connor why they were here, she saw him walk ahead of her. "Come on, you're not about to go to your brother's dorm out of all places. That'll make you feel worse." He said as he pulled her arm.
"Connor since when do you like going to fairs." She asked him, clearly remembering him getting nauseous from just going on the Ferris wheel. After some time went by though, she started to enjoy herself. Playing games, eating fairground foods, and snow cones, it definitely took her mind off her troubles. After the sun set, fireworks were thrown.
Sharon hugged her plush frog. She still couldn't believe Connor won it for her in one of the fair games. It was a logic game, so it shouldn't have come much of a suprise. As she lay on the grass watching the colorful lights above her, her mind began to go back to her troubles. 'Maybe going to California wouldn't be as bad as I think it'd be. Alden would be there with me, so it wouldn't be that bad.'
Connor rejoined her side, for he momentarily left it to go refill his drinks. As he took his seat next to her, she asked him. "Hey Connor, do you think that after high school you lose all the friends that you had?"
"What do you mean?" Connor said sitting up.
"I mean, do you believe that everyone goes their own way after high school. Become different people, that doesn't involve the friends they used to have." Sharon said slowly.
"What made you think up that idea?" Connor asked casually raising a eyebrow, but then answered. "I think it's true depending on you. If you make time for your old friends, or become a different person. It's not much different then high school. You could at any time make new friends depending on your classes or interests, and lose interest in old ones. I mean take Alyson for example. She used to be Nina's friend. Who would have said she would changed, even if it was for the better." Connor answered in a tone like he was explaining a theory. He stopped, and turned to Sharon when he heard some sniffing sounds.
"Sharon?" He asked as he crawled in front of her to face her. He didn't expect her to be in the state she was. She was huddled, with her face between her bent knees crying.
"I knew we were eventually going to go study what we wanted; but I never thought about the possibility that we probably weren't going to see each other. We really haven't seen Maria in what; over two years. To think she's going to the same college as her high school, means probably we're not going to see her then either. Now Brock is heading for New York. Alden has plans in LA. No matter where I decide to go, I'm going to be separated from nearly everyone. Why can't it be simple like Adam has it?" Sharon said between tears.
"I don't think that's the only reason you're crying. Adam still got separated from some of his friends. He's just still together with Hannah and some of his teammates in his university. You can always go with Alden to LA and study with him there. It's not much different to what Adam is doing. What is it then, that's really bothering you?" Connor asked.
"I don't know. I don't even know where I want to go. I haven't even decided, yet it seems like I have to make up my mind now, because everyone else has already. It's like if..." Sharon calmed down a bit before finishing off her sentence, when Connor finished off her sentence.
"Like if your decision doesn't matter anymore right?" Connor said as he drank his protein shake.
Sharon looked at him, and sighed. Still being a mystery to her on how her best friend understands what she means perfectly, yet her own boyfriend of nearly four years doesn't seem to. ' They are after all both guys, so what gives.' She then realized if she did decide to join Alden in LA that would mean not only getting away from her family, but Connor as well. Yet another worry added to her evergrowing pile.
"Agh I give up, I'm clueless! There's still a whole year to think about it anyways right?" She said as she sat up to enjoy the last of the fireworks.
"Sure is." Connor answered her with a smile.
"Um Connor." Sharon suddenly added, with a worried look on her face. "No matter what, you won't forget me as a friend will you?" Sharon looked at him hoping to hear the answer she wanted.
Connor just laughed. "I'm not planning on leaving Canada anytime soon. I'll always call Elkford my home. As long as that is, you're always be my neighbor. Plus if you actually ever visit your family, you'll know I'll be there. Josh will still be at your house you know." He said with a smile.
Sharon smiled, and inwardly gave a sigh of relief. Home that's where the heart is. Now at least she was comforted by the fact, that all she needed was to return home, and her family and friend would be there.
As Connor drove Sharon home, she was in a much better mood. Her worries of her future were gone, and she felt like she could breath freely again. She felt like old times were back, as they both were slurping on shakes from Life Cycles while listening to their favorite cd. As they pulled in the driveway Sharon turned once again to Connor.
"Did I ever tell you.." Sharon said with a smile.
"How great of a friend you are." Connor said sarcastically.
Sharon blushed, as she scratched her head. "I guess I did, anyways thanks a ton Connor."
Connor sighed and laughed. "And once again I say it, no problem." He then fell silent as Sharon got out of his car. "By the way how did Alden react to you having braces again? Was it really as bad as you thought it was going to be?" He said with a 'I-told-you-it-wasn't-so-bad' tone.
Sharon stopped in her tracks. That was when it dawned on her. Alden never once today had mentioned her braces, or noticed them even. Was that a bad thing?
"I guess he was so hyped about college he didn't notice." Sharon answered him without turning around.
"Oh well... I guess that's sort of a good enough reason. Anyways I'll be seeing you." Connor said with a tone that Sharon recognized as either disappointment or reluctance.
Suddenly a voice crept from the shadows. "So all this time, that's where you were!" It turned out to be Alden waiting on her front lawn!
Sharon turned around surprised. "Alden what are you doing here, I was going to call you?" She said quickly.
"Why didn't you answer your phone…? I must've left over twenty messages on both of your phones." He said walking over anger sketched brightly on his face.
"I just needed some space, so I asked Connor to take me to Toronto." She answered him angry at how he was blowing this little situation out of proportion.
"Let me get this straight. While I was calling you all day, looking for you in every possible place in Elkford. You went partying with him, both of you ignoring my calls. All of this because you had a meltdown at the thought of acting more like my girlfriend." Alden said as he counted each thing on his fingers.
"What do you mean 'more like a girlfriend', you're the one who should have acted more like my boyfriend. You didn't even bother telling me anything, instead you just thought about yourself." Sharon replied, as she pushed him aside to go inside her house.
"If you're going to talk about being selfish, you should look in a mirror. You care more about leaving this town in the middle of nowhere, then what really matters. Did you ever wonder why Maria left this place? It was because she knew the people of this town had no chance at doing anything. Excelling or anything close to being famous. I think your brother should realize his mistake, and take his wrestling elsewhere. Your dad, and Maria were smart enough to leave once they got the chance, before they wasted their ti...SLAP!
Alden stood there holding his cheek in shock. He never expected Sharon to come out so defensive. Yet there she stood with a flustered face full of anger. He hadn't seen her like this ever since their first breakup.
"These people, this town you're talking about is including my family. My mom, and brother are great people, they don't care about leaving Elkford to get a bigger chance at getting famous. Connor isn't doing a mistake by staying here either. There are people that unlike you, they don't care only about fame. In the end Maria and my dad did the same exact thing... they left! If you want to do it to, then go RIGHT AHEAD! Sharon yelled, and walked inside her house, slamming the door behind her.
' This can't be another breakup. Nina was right after all, maybe Alden outside of high school has nothing to do with a Braceface like me.' She thought, as she wiped her eyes. Josh suddenly came down the stairs.
"Sharon what are you doing?" He asked, as he looked out the window.
"Is he out there?" Sharon asked him, moving away from the door.
"Who's out there?" He asked looking at her, his face blank.
"Never mind, he's gone now. Go to bed." She answered him, realizing Alden indeed left already.
Entering her room, she tossed aside a picture frame of Alden that stood on her bedside table. Throwing herself on her bed, facedown in her pillow; she told herself aloud.
" So much for the first day of senior year." -
Author's Note : Ok this was mostly a filler, to start up the story, and give backgrounds on how each character currently is. More of the other characters such as Dion will make a later appearance. This chapter might of been boring since it was mostly Sharon's thoughts or dialogue. Hopefully in the later chapters more action and drama will take place. Remember though Braceface, was a show that dealt with Sharon's POV on simple life changing things. So this story has to deal mostly with her insight in order to capture the essence of the show. For example the paragraph that's like this:
/ The paragraph that's written like this between two slashes like this / Means it's Sharon narrating to the viewer like she used to do in the show/
That almost happened in every episode, so I thought if it was to be a Braceface fanfic it had to have a bit of Sharon narrating her inner feelings or what's happened. Sharon also in the show questions herself alot, so that's the reason there's lots of them in this chapter. As I said before in true Braceface style lol
Anyways I'm going to admit I SUCK AT BREAKUP SCENES. Even if this isn't a breakup scene per say, but I admit it's not my best point of writing. So sorry if it didn't touch you the way it should've. Also this chapter might of been a bit OOC, but that's maybe because Braceface hasn't aired in so long here in the states that I admit I haven't seen the show in a whiiilllle. Lastly sorry again for grammar or punc mistakes. I'm still trying to improve.
