Last time on TTPADL:
"Wait, all you remember?" I confusedly ask. From what Austin's saying, it sounds as if Cassidy WAS using Austin for popularity! I guess it wasn't working, so then she… took his body, for a good music career! Huh, using a guy to get exposure and popularity is not a good mix. Now, why wouldn't Austin remember things?
"Yeah, like I'd go to sleep meaning to talk to Cassidy about things, and the next thing I know, it'd be a huge blur," Austin replies. From what Austin's saying, Cassidy's basically using Austin as a personal stepping stool…
"Well, I think I might have a way to get Cassidy and you back to your respectful bodies," I pipe up.
The Two Parts of Ally Dawson's Life
"Really? Really? What way?" Austin eagerly asks.
"Well, you as Cassidy could stage a kind of humiliating thing to humiliate Cassidy in your body, and maybe even say stuff that might-lose-your-popularity (1), so then Cassidy would leave your body!" I say hesitantly, already knowing that Austin would say no.
"WHAT? Ally, I can't believe you would say that. I mean, you're the one that helped me get my big break, and now to get my body back, I have to witness my body being tortured and lose my popularity? Wow Ally, you're becoming stupider than Dez if you think I'd go through that. Forget that idea, I'm not risking my pride and fame to get my body back. If you have such crappy ideas, fine then! I'll do it on my own!" Austin angrily says, Cassidy's eyes blazing up with anger as he, or is it she, storms out.
Well, there goes that idea… Now, what to do about Austin and Cassidy's dilemma? Yeah, I know you're probably thinking, "Whoa, does this girl seriously have that lowish a life to continue helping when Austin just said to forget about it?" Yeah yeah, I get it. No need for embarrassment.
But he's my friend, and my friends always get help whether they want it or not. Eh, now to watch a movie. Hopefully it'll give me a bit more inspiration on the whole mystery, and maybe some lyrics.
1 hour and 45 minutes later, I'm clutching my bowl of popcorn, cocooned in a light blanket as the credits to Limitless (1) come on. What? Yeah, I can watch thrillers. It excites me. In fact, thrillers and mysteries are my favorite movies. Romantic movies can be eh unless in special circumstances, unless it's 'The Notebook' (2), and we all know I get bored and sleepy by horror movies.
Plus, Limitless is based on the novel 'The Dark Fields' by Alan Glenn (3), and that book was pretty good, so here I am, watching the movie. Well, correction, just watching the movie. I can't believe it ended at such a meaningless restaurant scene! Such a crappy ending… But other than that, the movie was effin' amazing!
Sadly, I don't seem to have gotten any inspiration, so here we go, laptop! I choose you! Wow, I just became that much more lamer… Wait, since when do I use Pokemon phrases? I don't even watch Pokemon (4)!
Grabbing my laptop, I type in, Ways to Cure Body Swap. Pressing 'Enter', I wait anxiously for Google (5) to finish loading the results. After it loads, I look at the links, trying to find a reliable link. Finding one called, The Many Enchantments That Can Befall, and How to Escape Them. Huh, looks fancy and reliable. Clicking on the link, it goes to a page set up a LOT like Wikipedia (6), and I look at the many enchantments it has. It has so many things, from possession, to mind control, and just so many things! Oh, hold up, I just found body swap. Sweet! Well, I guess I could read the body swap description:
"A very popular topic in the sci-fi and supernatural topics of this universe, body swap is actually a very complex enchantment that can leave you in your own body one second, and immediately go to another one the next second.
Despite what people may think about the so-called 'fake', it DOES NOT have anything to do with swapping your vocal chords as many animated series happen to have.
There are many different types of body swap, but 2 types are the main types of body swap that can happen.
(1), Lethe Novo (7): This can happen after one goes to sleep, and awakens in the opposite body. This type can happen with the opposite gender and with the same gender, but 77% of the time, it is a girl to boy swap. At first, the two souls will retain their memories, enjoyments, and peeves, but after a week, both souls will be permanently stuck in the opposite body with no memories of their former life, thinking that they've always been the other person.
I abruptly stop reading, even though it was getting quite good, because of the fact that Cassidy and Austin's swap seems to fit perfectly with the 'Lethe Novo' swap type. Oh my Dobby! I only have a week! Scrolling down, I look for ways to fix it. Most of them seem impossible, but one:
(8), The Memento Mori Tournament (8): Every month between the time the full moon comes up to the 4th day receding it, there is a tournament in the UK that tests your skills at not being frightened and being able to keep up with the action 4 days straight in a row. The prize is a stone called the Stone of Epismia (9) which grants any wish you wish upon it.
Hold up, hold up. This is perfect! I'm sure I can handle it, it didn't have any code about abnormals not being able to join, so I'm sure I can handle it. Plus, it seems like a good way to test my powers out against people that I know I can go to the full extreme with. Plus, the full moon's coming up tomorrow, so I can go. All right, let's do this. I'm doing this for Austin. I'll win and survive it, and then I'll be back to help Austin and Cassidy. Well, mostly Austin.
After writing a note for Dad saying I'd gotten a calling from Sylster Glowstorm (10) who needed some 'tricky' help, so I might be back in 4 days, and if not, I'll always love him, I texted Trish telling her I was going on a small b-day vacation for 4 days, unless there's any trouble. Then I texted Austin letting him know I'd gotten a lead for his dilemma, so I'd hopefully be back in 4 days, but otherwise I'll always be proud to have known him.
With my duffel bag filled with essentials, I walk up to the pool, I take a deep breath, and then I transport myself to the UK, hoping for the best of luck.
Author's Note: BUM BUM BUM! Starting from this chapter, the action's really going to kick in. Maybe I need 'Thriller' or 'Adventure' as a third genre... Anyway, sorry I couldn't post this chapter sooner, I went to another place to visit relatives (a place we've never been to), for 2-3 days, and well, you get the drill. I had to leave my laptop behind (again). But until the 26th, I can update! Then, well, I'm heading home. So, did you guys like how this chapter was slightly more sophisticated and intellectual? I had to do some research for some of the phrases and look up stuff because honestly, I feel I've been getting too relaxed with this story, and not doing the best I can to make this story a bit more like those professional books since according to my 6th grade LA teacher, I could make stories, essays, and whatnot sound sophisticated and professional even when it was about something pretty stupid. :D Anyway, random note, my birthday is EFFIN TOMORROW! Well, I'm not sure if it's the 20th or 21st there, but well, for me, it's TOMORROW! Same day as Selena Gomez, by the way. :D And the day before Daniel Radcliffe's birthday. Double :D for me to have nearby or same b-days with two of my most respected people!
Anyway, onto the numbers:
(1)- I don't own the 2011 thriller movie 'Limitless'. Ally's opinion of the movie, honestly, is what I thought of it. Overall, amazing movie! I kinda wish I could use NZT without the bad parts happening...
(2)- I don't own 'The Notebook'. I was originally going to use Titanic, but then I'd used the movie's theme song, and plus, Titanic's been used in other stories, so The Notebook it was!
(3)- I don't own 'The Dark Fields' by Alan Glenn. I want to read it now, and see if the book or movie is better. though.
(4)- Yeah, I think we all know I don't own Pokemon. I remember when I was little, and I'd watched it. Then my best friend started watching it after my generation had grown out of it. Hee hee.
(5)- Hey guys! I'm the main CEO of Google! Psh no, not even in my dreams. No, I most definitely do not own Google.
(6)- I WISH I could own Wikipedia. But I don't. *sigh* I'm starting to depress myself with all the stuff I don't own.
(7)- 'Lethe Novo' stands for 'Memory Change', and both words are Greek. You might have recognized Lethe as in Lethe River from Percy Jackson, though.
(8)- 'Memento Mori' is a Latin phrase that stands for 'Remember your mortality'. I chose it for 2 important reasons: (1)= It sounds cool, and (2)= That part will be important later on.
(9)- 'Epismia' is the Greek word for 'Wish'. I honestly got the idea for it from the WOWP movie with the Stone of Dreams. Huh, now that I think about it, I indirectly got the memory dilemma too...
(10)- I do not own Sylster Glowstorm. Sylster is a boss in the Wizard101 dungeon Waterworks. Yes, I'm proud to play Wizard101! If you guys play Wizard101, I have a Legendary Theurgist named Kayla Starblossom.

Now, review replying:
My reply to idk: Uh, sorry, wrong story. Huh, never thought I'd say that... But I think you're thinking about 'What the Switched'.
My reply to MikaylaMakoola: Thank you! Eh, I never really liked nor hated her. I just didn't like how she practically seemed like that 'perfect girl who gets everything they want'. I mean, she seems to have no flaws! Hm, maybe I'll add some fire people in later, but yes, there are. There are many different types of powers in this A&A universe, but I don't think I'm that willing to make a chart... Glad to know you like that kind of stuff! Yes, I am honestly fascinated by people who can control elements, and I also love it when people just prove to other people, I can do something powerful! So hence, this story.
My reply to MissPuzler: OMD! Seriously? Sweet! I LOVE LOVE Style Savvy. Honestly, when I first started playing, I had a tiny crush on Dominic... *blush* He's one of the cutest video game characters EVA! Did you hear they're making a sequel? I hope our character and Dominic get to have a relationship in this one! And no, you're not alone. One of my friends has Style Savvy too. :D
My reply to jeanetta22: Glad to see you're not confused anymore! Alrightio, when I can, I'll try to check it out.
My reply to Christianpunk: I was honestly thinking about a duel between Cassidy and Ally (supernatural battle), but then I decided on the tournament after watching 'Faces in the Crowd'. No, there's no tournament in that movie, but you'll see how FTC is connected to this tournament.
My reply to Guest: No, I don't live in India. I have family, but no, I don't. I live in the US, but that's all I'm saying. I'm sorry, I'm never too comfortable telling where I live on the internet.
My reply to Amazing Girl: Yeah, angel part and rant was nice, huh? Well, obviously I'll keep writing!
My reply to AngelGoneDevil69: No worries, glad to see you enjoyed the chapters, and hope you had fun on your vacation.
Well, that's it for now, probably not going to update on the 22nd (I'll be busy celebrating my b-day!), so probably later today or the 23rd is when I'll update again. Until next time!
