MAXIMUM RIDE FAN QUESTIONS:
1. Do you think Iggy is hot?
Um... possibly? I've never given it much thought...
2. Did you cry when Ari died?
Not really... Ari wasn't cool until the end, and even then it didn't affect me much.
3. Do you think Fang is hot?
Are you crazy??? Heck yeah!
4. How do you pronounce Ari's name?
5. Do you laugh every time you read the name Mr. Chu?
I never really thought about that either... hmm... too focused on, you know, the characters that actually matter.
6. In MAX, did you laugh hysterically when Total started talking about marriage?
No... should I have?
7. Did you squeal at all the faxness in MAX?
I didn't squeal, but I did make sure to re-read it all.
8. Did you angrily throw your book across the room when the flock split up?
I wanted to, but sadly, that would have meant loosing my page :/
9. Who is your favorite character?
Tie between Max and Fang
10. Do you like Jeb?
Yeah, I guess.
11. Were you making a genuine "WTF" face when Max and Fang grew gills?
No, the books are just that weird... you should be prepared for anything if you're a fan.
12. Did you think MAX was better than TFW?
13. Did you get slightly fed up with Nudge and Angel's slight attitudes in MAX?
Nudge wasn't as bad as Angel. Angel... she's more of a little devil.
14. Which book is your all time favorite?
Eeek. Just one? Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports, if I must choose.
15. If the flock had a theme song, what would it be?
I Believe I can Fly... yes, I really am that literal and straight out corny.
16. Have you ever imagined the flock as a band playing whatever song comes up when listening to your iPod?
Not as a band, but I think of how the lyrics pertain to certain situations, if that counts.
17. Who do you think the voice should be?
It seems to be Jeb... that's good enough for me.
18. Do you think one or more members of the flock should learn to play an instrument?
It would be the most random occurrence in the books, but interesting none the less.
19. What bugged you the most about TFW?
The global warning crap and Brigid. It just... wasn't like the others. Hard to explain.
20. MIGGY or FAX?
Doesn't my username say it all?!?!?

My mom: Well, he's not going through the drive through...

My favorite quotes from some of my favorite fan fic's!
The Meaning of Bacon by Constant-Rae-of-Sunshine
"Iggy, you know what? I don't care what time it is. This bacon is so darn good, I'd eat it any time of any day. And I think I agree with all the things you said about bacon, even the part about being better then girls!"
"Excuse me?" Came the all too familiar voice of the leader of the flock, who had, without either of our knowledge, entered the room.
Rainy Day Games With the Flock, chapter 3 by Fangalicious08
“Where’re you going?” Ella asked me.
“The Pillsbury Doughboy just told me to take a shower because I smelled like Fang’s armpits.” I told her and skipped out the door and down the hall.
On my way to the bathroom I rethought my last sentence…I sounded like a patient from a mental asylum.
Sick Days, chapter 23 by Strawberry Shortcake123
“Fang,” she sighed in what was supposed to be a dreamy voice. Slowly, she lowered herself to the floor, sitting down cross-legged. Fang silently sat beside her, and they smirked at each other.
“Oh, could you guys not--”
“Max,” he whispered, loud enough for Iggy to hear. “Max… oh, man, you taste good…”
“For the love--”
Max hit the linoleum floor with her hand, making a thumping noise. “Get off me, Fang,” she said, adding a girlish giggle at the end. The look on Iggy’s face was priceless, and they both had to bite their lips in order to not burst out laughing.
“Nope,” Fang said huskily. “Never.”
Max grabbed his hand and planted loud kisses all over it. “Oh, geez, Fang,” she breathed. She gasped. “Fang!”
“Get a room, you two!”
They still weren’t doing anything but sitting to each other, hands joined, but the poor blind kid didn’t need to know that.
Fang leaned over and started kissing her cheek, in-between kisses murmuring, “You’re amazing, you’re wonderful, beautiful… you are the wind beneath my wings…”
(I almost had tears in my eyes when I read this the first time, now reading it again... I'm still laughing. Great. Really great stuff.)
I'm glad I Didn't Die Before I Met You by Katterpatter
I whispered, "The fire's dying," as I gestured with my eyes towards the glowing pile of ashes to the right of us.
"Mhm, I thought it was just starting," Fang whispered back, before capturing my lips again.
(I loved this quote, just for the touchy feeliness of it. So cute. Very "awe-worthy"... contains Fang Spoilers though, so be cautioned to read if you haven't read Fang yet.)
And finally, The MR Spoof by xxgldxx as a whole is hilarious.
All 4 of these are on my favorites list if you're interested, so go on, get! :)
Now, here's a little bit from Maximum Ride Forever, the (last?) Maximum Ride book. I can hardly believe it! Straight from James Patterson's website it says,
"THE NINTH AND ULTIMATE MAXIMUM RIDE STORY IS HERE! Legions of Max fans won't be disappointed by this encore episode in the beloved series about the incredible adventures of a teenage girl who can fly."
IT'S OUT, GUYS! What'd you think!?
Pictures from ABC:
Okay, so this is the first time I've tried this, but here goes nothing: If you're viewing this, and you know of a great book that you think I might like to check out, PM me the title and the author. It seems like all I've been reading lately are suspenseful romances, and I want to expand my literature, but I don't know where to start. Any good suggestions are welcome. :)
And, if I read a book you've suggested, I'll put a small review up here when I've finished reading. Sound good? So, any suggestions, just shoot me at PM. I appreciate it, faithful readers. :) You're the best!
Read and write on,
