Then came the Internet.

Funny moments and quotes between myself and Lynxgoddess:

-Illyria13: "How did this happen? I wrote a novel that had absolutely nothing to do with this and now we're porn stars? How could they do this?!!!"

-Illyria13: "Nananana. You have to yield to me, Bitches!"
Lynxgoddess: "Wow. 19 years old and got a permit, finally learning how to drive. Glad to see you're mature in this situation." (Me driving on the Interstate, laughing at the line of cars waiting to get on)

-Lynxgoddess: "That child in the cart is staring at you."

-Lynxgoddess: "SPF 30? Don't they have 50? We're pretty damn pale!" -In Target, getting sunscreen for our walking class.
-Illyria13: "So, people actually write fanfiction in the fandom of Shakespeare? Don't you do enough of that in school? Why would you write that in your spare time?"
Lynxgoddess: "There's fanfiction for the Bible."
Illyria13: "I think I knew that. But what could you possibly write? Wait, isn't that blasphemy?!"
Lynxgoddess: "What are you going to do, take out a whole book? Rewrite a story? Give new meanings to the parables? I know! I want to rewrite the ending! Although technically it hasn't ended yet." -Marveling over the random categories on FF.net
-Lynxgoddess: "My childhood called. It wants its' speech impediment back." -After stumbling over her words and mixing them up rather humorously
-Upon reading a rather tragically stupid summary for a Twilight/Vampire Diaries fic, the end of which was: "What awaits her there?" (referring to Bella):
Illyria13: "Hopefully, a better plotline."
-Lynxgoddess: "I'd rather be a not-favorite than a favorite...I say from my cushy position as the favorite." -During a discussion at dinner, Lynxgoddess pointed out the unfairness of favoritism by parents.

Lynxgoddess: "Depends. How long is it 'til the end of the semester?" -Watching her drink straight out of the $23 bottle of Strawberry Tequila
After receiving a phone call from both parents on the same night, Illyria13 started drinking. Lynxgoddess joined in. Here are their witticisms from that night:
-Lynxgoddess:"I knew we'd grow-up someday. I just wasn't sure it was to be alcoholics."
-Lynxgoddess: "Parents-first they drive you around, then they teach you to drive, and then they drive you to drink."
-Illyria13: "I thought getting older meant outgrowing the toddler phase."
Lynxgoddess: "No; you get older and it's called having an opinion."
-Lynxgoddess:"Parents are additive, but their effects on their children, and their children's alcohol consumption, is exponential at least. On bad days, maybe logarithmic."
-(Illyria13 stumbles in the dark, running into the door and the wall and a table) Lynxgoddess: "What the f* are you doing over there? If you are trying to impersonate Nightcrawler, you cannot crawl on the ceiling, no matter how good you are."

You got that envelope, you know the one; comes in the mail and says ‘CountyofLos Angeles’ on the top, and you open it like this, “Oh God”. A week passes, you watch the witnesses parade through. You listen to the lawyers argue. And suddenly, you’re not strangers anymore. Some of you have even made friends. It’s not as bad as you thought, right? But then the judge asks you to deliberate, and then you have a moment of doubt. I’m not a doctor, I’m not a scientist; how can I tell if Ernesto Vargas died from using Fast Life? How can I be sure? But that envelope entrusted you with the most important obligation of citizenship. And that is to find the truth. It’s so important that we dare not give it to one person, but to 12 strangers.

-"Hello? My name is Elliot Moore. I'm just going to talk in a very positive manner, giving off good vibes. We're just here to use the bathroom. Then we're just going to leave. I hope that's okay. (touches tree) Plastic. I'm talking to a plastic plant. I'm still doing it." -The Happening
-Michael: "When God chose your kind as the object of his love, I was the first in all Heaven to bow down before you. My love, my hope, for mankind, was no less than his. But I have watched you trample that gift. I've watched you kill each other over race and greed, waging war over dust and rubble and the words in old books. And yet, in the midst of all this darkness, I see some people who will not be bowed. I see some people who will not give up, even when they know all hope is lost. Some people who realize that being lost is so close to being found." -Legion

-"Anyone who clings to the historically untrue — and thoroughly immoral — doctrine that "violence never solves anything" I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and of the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms." -Robert Heinlien

-"But dying’s no easy trick. And suicide can’t be put on a list of Things to Do in between cleaning the grill pan and leveling the sofa leg with a brick. It is the decision not to do, to un-do; a kiss blown at oblivion. No matter what anyone says, suicide takes guts. It’s for heroes and martyrs, truly vain-glorious men.” White Teeth by Zadie Smith
“You may be right about Samad…about many things. Maybe there are no good men, not even the two I might have in this belly…and maybe I do not talk enough with mine, maybe I have married a stranger. You might see the truth better than I. What do I know…barefoot country girl…never went to the universities. But I know I cannot be worrying-worrying all the time about the truth. I have to worry about the truth that can be lived with. And that is the difference between losing your marbles drinking the salty sea, or swallowing the stuff from the streams. My Niece-of-Shame believes in the talking cure, eh?” says Alsana, with something of a grin. “Talk, talk, talk and it will be better. Be honest, slice open your heart and spread the red stuff around. But the past is made of more than words, dearie. We married old men, you see? These bumps”-Alsana pats their bellies. –“they will always have daddy-long-legs for fathers. One leg in the present, one in the past. No talking will change this. Their roots will always be tangled. And roots get dug up.” –White Teeth by Zadie Smith
-But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
'Oh, can't help that,' said the Cat. 'We're all mad here, I'm mad. You're mad.'
'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
'You must be,' said the Cat, ' or you wouldn't have come here.'” - Lewis Carroll
Last but not least:
Guns don't kill people. I kill people.
Forgive me, Father. For I am sin.
Lynxgoddess passed this quote along to me:
"Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language."
—Lev Grossman, TIME, July 18, 2011
(07/31/11) For those of you who are interested, I just wanted to let everyone know that I've been working on a variety of fics for the past couple weeks...ummm, make that months...and I'd really love to finish them all. Between school and work (like everyone else) free-time to write is near impossible; rest assured, however, that I will definitely be working on the stories that I've started and hopefully I can get some of them finished within the next couple weeks. I've had a lot of people put me on author alert and a few who've PM'd, asking if there were plans for more stories, and I just wanted to let people know that I will definitely continue writing. Also, I want to thank everyone who's added me to their favorites and their alerts, and for all anonymous reviewers to whom I cannot reply, thanks for all the good things you've had to say on my stories!
And on a final note, I'd like to give a shout-out to my beta and best friend Lynxgoddess, and to another wonderful author who's becoming quite a star in the Flashpoint fandom, Rgs38, for all the help and advice that they've given me. Rgs38, I can't wait for more Flashpoint fics from you! And Lynx, I will finish that story (you know the one I'm talking about) even if it kills me!
