Nicely done, and a nice elaboration, though I don't fault Balthazar for saying that in the movie. He DID clarify it with the 'You've heard that most people only use 10 percent . . .' Of course, Dave's heard that; most people have. But that doesn't make it true. It's one of the things I love about language, and interpretation. Balthazar didn't say it was true, so therefore it wasn't a lie. And, as you pointed out, it was a shortcut to help Dave understand how special he really was. Dave really couldn't see past being 'just' a nerd, and that was a very big obstacle. It literally took until the end of the movie. Thanks for this.

i loved the excuse for the brain thing. I just watch the movie like yesterday and it bug me because it wasn't true.

I've reviewed your stuff before, but have to drop back in to say that this... THIS is pitch perfect. You caught pretty much all the plotholes, I think, and you channeled Dave's quirkyness and Balthazar's snark in lovely fashion. Thanks for writing it. _

D'aaawwwwww...I saw this movie a few days before my birthday and found myself really liking it. Balthazar and Dave had a nice banter set up, and a great relationship.

Keep writing!

The summary alone drew me in. 3

This is just so well-written! A little short, and I wish there was more to this.

This would be an uh-MAZING way to start off a whole story!
Argent-Jinx chapter 1 . 9/12/2010
I wish this wasn't just a one-shot. I feel like there could be sooooo much more. So I loved it, obviously.

RoMythe chapter 1 . 8/16/2010
Oh, nice little story! or will there be more? I hope so; that thing with Becky being a sorceress could be cool!
Bane WolfBlood chapter 1 . 8/1/2010

Sara Wolfe chapter 1 . 7/24/2010
Very nice. I especially like how you addressed the whole "the percent of the brain" comment. That was the part of the movie that bugged me the most, but I love your explanation for it.
