| fashiongrrl chapter 11 . 4/14/2003
Great story, you totally had me fooled with the ending! Poor Dia :( but what about Merde? You have some really funny dialouge in here, and I think my fav line was where you wrote "It was offical, Spike was the first vampire to have a heart attack." in chapter 9, that was SO FUNNY! Neat premise for a story, though I don't get how Buffy fell in love w/ Spike so fast considering they were enemies. But yay, they got Parker back! Stupid idiot Parker! And hooray for spuffyness! And yay for the line where you wrote that Giles would have hurt Parker himself if Spike and Buffy didn't. Excellent work, very entertaining!
Okay and just a few corrections for you. Lo siento, pero necesito hacer esto... I think some of your Spanish is off. Mind you I haven't taken a class in nearly 5 years, but I don't think some of it is quite right. Unless you're a native speaker and I've just forgotten all my Spanish or unless you actually went to someone who knew Spanish and they helped you with this. In that case, lo siento! I don't mean to offend, I just am trying to be helpful, so please please please don't think I'm trying to be mean or something by correcting your grammar. And if any of my corrections are wrong, I'm very sorry about that too. (Lo siento I'm sorry - for those of you who don't know Spanish.)
In Chap 3 you write "No preocupe mi pantera" and I think the correction should be "No SE preocupe mi pantera" to let the sentence flow better grammatically (I've put the corrections in capital letters so you can find them).
Also in Chap 3: You cannot say "nadie hace el lio con nosotros..." because literally you are saying "no one will do a mess with us" but you are
trying to say "no one will mess with us." There is no Spanish equivalent for the English slang term/verb "to mess with." You might want to try using the verbs "to fight with" or "to bother us" instead. I would suggest using "pelear" (to fight) or "molestar" (to bother)
in this case. The word "lio" is a noun literally meaning "a mess" as in "a messy room" and cannot be used in this context.
So as a correction I'd suggest: "Nadie van a MOLESTAR (_or_ PELEAR CON) nosotros entonces."
Next in Chapter 8, originally you write "Mi diosa esta es el climax de su vieja vida. Solamente una mas batalla despues de esto."
I'd use the correction: "Mi diosa, ESTE es el climax de su vida VIEJA" because remember - adjectives after nouns in Spanish and use este b/c you're describing el climax - a masculine word!
Next line, "Solamente un batalla MAS despues de ESTA." (Make sure you match este/esta/esto's endings with the word you are describing, por ejemplo, "batalla" is feminine so you must use "esta." And I think again like the adjectives going after nouns, in this case the word "mas" should go after "batalla.")
After this you write: "No mas de dolor de esta vieja vida, no estamos ya en el nuevo. Han perdido va, nosotros son juntos.
Ahora sigue el camino del viejo. Lo seguiremos hasta que se acaba este curso."
My correction: "No tenemos mas del dolor de esta vida VIEJA, YA estamos en LA NEUVA" (- feminine b/c you are using this to describe "vida" a
feminine word, ie, you're saying "la neuva vida" not "el nuevo vida").
Next... "Ellos YA han perdido, nosotros son juntos. Ahora mismo seguimos el camino de LA VIEJA (vida). Lo seguiremos hasta que se ACABAMOS este curso." (- ahora mismo right now, ahora now) And also use "acabamos" because you are talking about "we" by using "seguiremos" so you must use the "-amos" form of the verb "acabar" (to finish) in order to make the sentence make sense.
Finally, in Chap 11, you write: "Adios Dia, nina de Elita. Tu tenies mis buano amiga siempre."
I would say: "Adios Dia, nina de Elita. Tu siempre FUE mi amiga buena." Why? Because "tener" is a verb meaning to "posses" literally, the verb "ser" and
all its variants - past tense, present tense, mean "to be" or "is" or "have been/had been/has been" so you cannot use
"tener/tu tienes" in this context and instead must use "ser" and in past tense, you probably know it's "yo fue" for the present tense "yo soy." And remember, it's "amiga buena" because adjectives go after nouns.
I hope all this is right. I'm going on memory here. And like I said, please don't be upset that I corrected your Spanish. I was very impressed by the use of a foreign language in your story! Really added a lot of character!
Great work! :D
