I said this before and I'll say it again; Total Drama is chock full of hormonal adolescents! I think you made each mentioned relationship work well, especially Noah/Bridgette (who I never would've imagined being together before this). The Justin/Katie/Sadie/Owen votes could be taken with a grain of salt since they're based on appearance for the most part but I do agree with Owen that Lindsay would be a less scary option and can see how he would select Sadie as a girlfriend based on that fact.
It was also sweet to see Gwen finally establish a friendship with Cody since the geek seemed to cares lot about her as apersob and not just based on physical attractiveness. Seeing her reestablish a relationship with Trent was also a nice step towards a healing process for her.
Major props to DJ Rodriguez for the collaboration on this new route with Sierra! While the show makes her gestures and creepiness comedic, I can see that there could be a truly lonely girl in there that wants something happy to cling to. It's how fandom develops and I'm glad that she approached Cody with a new self-awareness. The two have potential to be good friends once she collects herself.
While the easy solution would be for the two girls to share Cody, didn't they already discuss that with each other and rule it out?
I can understand why there will be no lemons for other couples since Beth/Ezekiel and Gwen/Trent aren't at that level in their relationships yet and there's no need to see a bunch of shallow screws after the poignant and emotional Noah/Bridgette lemon. We got to see Noah bring vulnerable and Bridgette being her rarely wielded sage-like wisdom.
I can't wait to see who Cody ultimately chooses!

Before I start off with the review, I'd like to offer my condolences to your uncle Brian who passed away recently. It always sucks to lose a family member like that.
Right, so here we got a new chapter of this, which is the conclusion to the previous 'election' chapter, so let's get right into the meat of it :)
I guess it makes sense for Noah voting for LeShawna, and he offered some very valid points for it. I could tell he was rushing to answer Cody, but him doing that was for obvious reasons XD
I also enjoyed the Trent/Gwen vote as well, and am glad that they're back together. Both of them choosing LeShawna makes sense, as I distinctly remember Gwen and Trent teaming up with her in the season 1 special, but the major part of the scene was Gwen apologizing to Cody. Upon rewatching some TDWT episodes, especially the earlier ones, Gwen was being kinda a dick to Cody. And I thought it was awful how she agreed not to spend time with Cody in the Amazon episode, just so she could get Sierra's support to get rid of Heather. So yeah, it's nice to see her make up for that, and I'm predicting that Gwen and Courtney will finally get friendly again by the end of the story.
As for Cody talking with Justin/Katie and Owen/Sadie, and while I do love Owen, I doubt that Cody would be taking their votes for Lindsay into consideration to much. Partly because there reasoning for picking Lindsay is a bit... shallow? Although that's not a problem, as Justin, Katie and Sadie are very shallow characters. And it would make sense how Owen would value the bubbly niceness of Lindsay more than the sometimes scary demeanor of LeShawna.
Now for the other big apology coming from Sierra, which I thought was quite well done, and I do understand how hard it was for you to write it though, considering the Cannonical Sierra is a selfish and horrible person, but I digress, it was nice to see overall. And I do think due to this apology, Cody might value Sierra's input for LeShawna a bit more.
Now before I do my closing thoughts, I do think that the Noah/Bridgette scene at the end was pretty good.
Ah yes, now for the closing thoughts, or mostly predictions this time around but no matter. After this chapter, I am more leaning to thinking that the story will end with LeShawna/Cody now, mainly because the people who brought up the reasons for why LeShawna is the better pick had a better argument than Lindsay supporters, which was essentially Justin, Katie and Sadie saying 'She's hawter' and Owen just saying 'she's too scary'.
So yeah, I'm gonna be cool either direction you go with, but I do think that LeShawna's gonna win, unless something happens in the next chapter or two that makes Lindsay come out on top. I am also curious though on what will happen to the other girl if Cody chooses either Lindsay or LeShawna, as you said Alejandro and Duncan aren't going to get paired up in this story, which is honestly find by me (Although LeDunca would be a bit interesting.)
So yeah, that's my long review. Overall I found the chapter to be pretty cool setup for the next one.
Keep up the good work.

I lost a family member as well not too long ago so I know the feeling of losing someone important to me so I wish you luck with dealing that.
As for the chapter itself impressive. A lot happened in this chapter and to be honest the scene with Sierra showing character growth was very impressive to be honest. As for the votes I kind of expected the people who voted for who to do so since most of the votes reflected their own personalities though the most humorous votes would have been noah's and Sierra's.
Well I wish you luck in both RL and Fanfictions.
| JC chapter 7 . 2/5
Great,I am hoping that Lindsay and Leshawna will share Cody.
| PrincessThunderquake chapter 7 . 2/3
Once again you have pleased me, Mr. Serenity. This story just gets better as I continue reading. Also, take as much time as you need with the other chapters. Wouldn't want to force you to do something you're not in the mood for.
| Jeff Hardy Fan VR1 chapter 7 . 2/3
Cody's gotta tough choice, Lindsay and Leshawna both want him and the voting is tied.
I was thinking, why not for the last chapter Cody, Leshawna and Lindsay have a orgy. You know Cody gets to have sex with both of them at the same time, then at the end Leshawna and Lindsay agree to share Cody.
I mean between the two most beautiful girls in all of Total Drama, why should he choose? Since Leshawna and Lindsay are best friends, why can't they just share him? It just be easier for all three of them.
| zafnak chapter 7 . 2/3
Well the poll ended up a tie. I knew that was going to happen. Cody, Cody, Cody. Spare yourself the mental anguish and the worry and just date BOTH!
And Bridgette? She isn't just smart as she shows here, she is WISE. That outlook is the view of a woman with YEARS of sexual experience under her belt, not a virgin who has had a lot of make out experience. Espousing that belief, and using it to calm Noah? That shows maturity beyond her years.
If Cody hadn't developed feelings for Leshawna and Lindsay, Bridgette would be a perfect match for him.
| acosta perez jose ramiro chapter 7 . 2/3
Hey, this is quite good, and yeah, you got all the characters' personalities right at how they give reasons for Cody selecting one of the girls.
Keep the good writing

Hey Rufus. Before I get into my review of this chapter, I'd like to offer my deepest condolences about you're Uncle, and I'm very sorry for your loss. I hope you're doing okay.
Now for the review. Firstly, since this was the most shocking part in this story (Yes even more than Noah being so open about his feelings and his entire sex scene with Bridgette), Sierra's apology. This threw me for a complete loop. Not only was it surprising to hear this come from Sierra, but the fact that it was genuine. I was expecting something manipulative like she pulled in Paris, but this was actually nice to see. Again, Sierra's one of my least favorite contestants, but like TDI Charlie Brown and Strix Moonwing, you proved that if written correctly, someone as creepy and unlikable as Sierra can be made likable. That was a good scene and I'm kind of happy that Sierra and Cody are at peace. btw I like that little matchmaking quiz reference from "Candy For Your Thoughts"
Another thing that satisfied me was Gwen apologizing to Cody. She treated him like crap throughout season 3 and I felt it was long overdue (something I hated about canon World Tour). I like that she and Cody are once again friends :)
I think you just made me into a Noah/Bridgette guy. That scene between them was great character development for Noah. It's good to know that he can be loving and serious despite being mostly a sarcastic cynic. Bridgette's admission of being a virgin was surprising but I thought it was a nice reveal. The sex between them was really hot too. I was a little weirded out by Katie giving Justin a handjob right in front of Cody though 8(
So after two chapters of asking other couples, it's now a tie between who Cody should choose to date. Interesting. I look forward to the next chapter Rufus. It's good to have you back :)

I am glad I was able to help, and also glad to see this up. I really hope and pray the best for you and your family. Always remember that your family and life come first. This story worth waiting for!
You really portrayed the characters in here well, especially with their partners! Hehehe... my friend, you found and walked the fine line of taste and showing lemon/lime scenes. Way to go! I do hope to be of more assistance to you in the future.
My vote is for Leshawna, like always! Again my friend, thank you for the mention and also for allowing me to help you out. Keep it up!

Your story is absolutely fantastic! I really love the use of uncommon couples! You should really write your own version of TDI or TDWT. I, like many others, would definitly read it.

Back for another review on this! :D
Now because of the length of the chapter and how a lot goes on in this chapter in paticular, I'm going to be re-reading this chapter and adding onto this review in another window I have opened up.
It's nice to see Lindsay and LeShawna are comforting Gwen for what Duncan has done to her, especially LeShawna considering she's one of the Goth's closest friends. And it was interesting how LeShawna and Lindsay admit to Gwen about them being in the contest for Cody's heart. But now I'm wondering if Gwen will be in a pairing in this story now. And it looks like it is gonna be Trent, which would be pretty good to happen :)
Next we got a pretty funny segment of TDI Cody and TDWT Cody. It's pretty funny and it shows how Cody developed as a character between and during seasons (At least when Sierra wasn't around to restrict his development.) So this leads then to Cody asking for advice on which girl he should pursue eh.
First on the list, Cody encounters Harold and Heather. Nice to see we get some H2 (Heather/Harold) action a bit again. I especially loved how Heather was written here, somewhat cynical but not totally evil and what she was doing near the end of her segment with Harold got a chuckle out of me. Lucky Harold ;)
Next we get Tyler and Eva, and it does make sense for the jock to vote for Lindsay, which sways Eva to vote for her too. I also got a chuckle at the end of the segment, where Eva threatens to break Cody's limbs if he tells anyone how weak kneed she was around Tyler.
Next we get to the DJ and Courtney segment, which I have much more to say on than the latter two. Whilst I don't really care too much about DJ as a character and you knowing full well on my stance with the C.I.T they were written well here. DJ's back to his TDI-TDA roots and Courtney still in character from TDWT without her being the most annoying thing on the face of the earth. And it's good to see Courtney using her C.I.T skills to asses the problem and vote for LeShawna. Makes sense in Courtney's character in such.
Now we get a chapter which, admittedly, I'm a bit biased on: We got to see Zeke get some action ;)
As you probably know, Ezekiel is by far my favorite character from Total Drama and seeing him reverted back to normal was awesome to see, and awesome to see that he has courted Beth! It also made sense for them both to pick Lindsay, for Beth is Lindsay's BFF of sorts.
Now we got the final portion of the chapter which is the Geoff and Izzy segment. And I may be jumping the gun on this one but I absolutely LOVED Izzy in this. Her explanation on why Lindsay would benefeit Cody as well as the blonde bombshell in question made a lot of sense. And what she says makes a lot of sense, Cody would never truly 'man up' with LeShawna.
And then we get a drastic shift, to Izzy's crazy side of wanting to 'moaterbotin those knockers' which actually got a pretty good laugh out of me. Also it reminds me how much of Izzy should've been in All Stars as the crazy girl instead of Sierra, yuck.
And now we get to the chapter's climax, the lemon. While I am not a lemon man myself, I found it to be pretty awesome and creative, which would make sense for Izzy being the awesome and creative gal that she is ;)
Now as the chapter ends, I truly have no idea what the end result will be, or rather, who Cody will choose. LeShawna and Lindsay seem to be equally good candidates for the tech geek, and I honestly don't know who he'll pick.
In closing, great job on this chapter and I'll be looking forward to the next one, whenever it'll be! :D

The method in which Gwen dumped Duncan was fitting. I don't blame Leshawna and Lindsay for being concerned about their position in Cody's heart now that Gwen is single again. I'm glad she assured them that she was considering starting anew with Trent. While he hit my "douche meter" during the Celebrity Manhunt special, he still seemed to care about the goth during the TDWT aftermath and it was one of my favorite canon couples during TDI. I liked the appearance of the little Codys and how they came to terms with the fact that his crush on Gwen has ended. I have a feeling that Cody and Gwen may have a conversation to continue their closure.
His quest in seeking others opinions on which girl to date exclusively was amusing! It was also strange since many of the couples didn't seem to care about having sex in very public places! It was like a high class porno! I thought you wrote all of them in-character and the Beth/Ezekiel pairing is growing on me! Though you said the votes were 3-2 in favor of Lindsay, I actually counted 6 (Eva, Tyler, Beth, Ezekiel, Geoff and Izzy) to 3 (Harold, Heather and Courtney while DJ remained neutral) in favor of Lindsay. They all made very valid if not mostly personal reasons for their choice especially Courtney and Izzy. It does seem especially one-sided at the moment...
I'm surprised that hardly anybody mentioned the Geoff/Izzy lemon that concluded the chapter! Lemons with Izzy never spark my interest because they always make her too "normal" if you understand my meaning and Geoff is often portrayed as an Adonis/love god (UltimateWarriorFan4Ever and AlmightyGeorgiaCrusher, I'm looking directly at you supposedly amazing smut writers). Good looks do not always equate perfect sex and Geoff was shown to make realistic airheaded moves while Izzy always reveled in being a scary predatory figure (notice how pissed she is everytime Owen calls her "cute" or "adorable, especially in TDA). The way they screwed each other made since and the two make an intriguing crack couple!
I'm personally rooting for Leshawna to eventually win Cody's heart but the statements from the inquired contestants has me considering both as suitable girlfriends for the tech geek. Looking forward to part Deux!

Broski, I have to say this story has been AWESOME!
I loved this whole love triangle between Cody, Leshawna and Lindsay, I would be happy with either one of those two lovely ladies as his girlfriend. In my opinion Lindsay and Leshawna are the two hottest women in all of Total Drama, and Cody is one of my favorite characters, I mena who wouldn't want to be with him? He's nice, he's very smart, good lookin', atheletic and a team player, anyone would be good for him expect Sierra. Sierra is a terrible pick for him, I'd be F'N pissed if they become a couple. Good thing you don't write coderra stories!
If I have to choose between Lindsay and Leshawna to be Cody girlfriend, I would go for Leshawna! I think Leshawna would the perfect girl for Cody. And as a professional wrestling fan I have to say CREATUREEEESSSS! Let's root for Leshawna.
Anyway keep writing great story bro. Woo Woo Woo You Know It!
