Nothing wrong with that. You should see so of the stuff I wrote before I gained any experience in that arena. I think you handled it beautifully.

I know there's nothing wrong with it. I'm actually kinda proud of it (can you say dateless existance?). It just makes writing it a little more difficult.

I think you handled it beautifully.

Well, I've got an overactive imagination... *grinblush*

*LOL* You should have seen me at your age. *Laughs harder*
sean_montgomery: Me-amusedsean_montgomery on January 3rd, 2007 01:27 am (UTC)
I'm not much younger than you!

*stops and thinks about it, counts on her fingers, laughs*

Okay, you're THAT much older than me. But you've got me all curious, now. Just how bad were you, Lois? Hmm?

I was a very curious kid. Didn't help that my mom kept us on a pretty tight leash. She wasn't mean or anything, but grew up in a household that was *very* Old School. I did my share of drinking and sneaking out. Experimenting.

Fooled around more than anything else, but nothing that would endanger me. I was pretty smart. I had alot of girlfriends who were more gutsy than I was and heard them tell tales. I also went to an art school, so you just had to know the right people. Tried a couple of things. Didn't do anything for me. Stopped it all cold.

But the first person I was with... *LOL* I think they're still recovering, eventhough it was a serious relationship. See, I was also writing a Anne Rice-styled Dark fantasy novel at the time and you know hormones... :D

*snark* Or in Caroline's case, it would be an album of Brandon pics...

*LOL, blushes* I can't believe I wrote that out...

*blinks at the above, then giggles*

I can't believe you did either...

Yeah... hormones... that was the biggest reason I didn't date period in high school/junior high. You're so out-of-whack at that stage of life, you know? I figured it was more worth me discovering who I was and my grades than getting involved with boys.

When you graduate and get into your twenties, though... heck, I think I'm kinda cool. What's the hold-up? : D

Everything along the lines of the lunch of OtL? All imagination. I'm just happy to know people thought it was realistic enough.

Yes, there are some *VERY* intelligent young adults out there, folks. You're brilliant, Abby. I wish I had figured out that dating wasn't a big deal. Wouldn't go too far, but annoyed with myself for some of what I did. It sucks to want to be liked, though. That was alot of my problem. Then I woke up. :D

That's a little that got put into my Lois. But she decided after the first time, she'd wait until she was older. It was one of those "You've got to be kidding me" situations. Besides, she was too busy and living with Perry, too. She grew up really quick.

*flushes* Don't think that meant I didn't want to be liked! Aw, heck, I went through MAJOR emotional issues back then... borderline suicidal (didn't think I could be, did you?). I went through three years of my life thinking people hated me, so that kinda helped in the 'what's the point?' thought process for dating. :D If no one liked me back, what was the point?

There WAS this guy though... I had this major crush on him for several years and was convinced that when I grew up, he was going to like me. Well, I went through this suicidal phase, and he ended up starting a secret relationship with this girl two years older than him... it was just a big mess. When I realized that it wasn't 'meant to be' (or whatever), I just decided that staying out of the game was better than getting hurt.

It definitly means I have NO CLUE whatsoever when it comes to being romantically involved, but I'd rather have that than mistakes on my record. Besides, creating the romantic drama, to me, is similar to creating dramatic tension - you've just got to understand where your characters are and what they're in.

We really are twins, hon. Only you figured things out alot faster than I did. We stumble, we fall. That's how we learn. *hug* Take it from the Goth girl. *grin*
sean_montgomery: Brandon - huh?sean_montgomery on January 3rd, 2007 03:08 am (UTC)
Goth girl? Well, I didn't go in THAT deep! : D

But I did stumble. And sometimes you have to stumble, even fall, before you learn how to pick yourself back up. And even then, if you can't stand on your own, it takes trust to allow someone to help you stand again. There was another issue with me. This guy I liked? His cousin, a very close friend at the time, was a compulsive liar, and I didn't know this until after she left the school. It was a while before I could trust someone to be close again, and even longer before I realized that being myself was going to be the most attractive trait of them all.

Funny thing is that I was Goth because I wanted to go, not because of my problems. I was a the nice, Stevie Nicks-Neil Gaiman type of Goth. Faeries and Labyrinth and Dark Crystal and stuff. Still am actually. :D Surprise! *snicker* Kala gets it from me.

And that sounds like me and my best friend Katie. My Mommy-substitute. Best friend. A year older. Very, very close. I got involved with someone *very* important to me and didn't know how to deal with the situation. Went to her for advice, scared to death. And she stole them from me instead to explaining to them. Was pretty bad off after that for a long while.

Ah, so the fantasy kinda goth? Not the dark eyeliner, wears black all the time, massive souls on the shoes kinda goth? 'Cause those people scare the living daylights outta me. :D

Don't people who turn their back on you suck? This girl... I see her all the time (saw her today at the store, actually)... and I don't know what to think about her, anymore. Do I believe what she's telling me? Is she even trustworthy? And here's the real kicker - she's made me the adopted aunt/god-mother of her children. I don't even know her anymore!

Well, that, too. *LOL* Not as much anymore, but yeah. The fantasy Goth plus that. I'll have to send one of my 'dressed-up' pics. I don't do the anti-social mean and curt thing. Anissa says I'm more like Lois would be as a Goth. Cracks me up to know that I'm going to put her and Clark through that with Kala. The best part is that Clark thinks she looks cute. *snort*

I know the feeling about the girl. I used to run into her all the time and it killed me because the two of them were still together. Then...they broke up. Thank God. She got married about a year ago to a fat, unattractive doctor who is letting her sit in the lap of luxury. I'm thrilled for her because it keeps her out of other people's lives. We're all happy now. *shrugs*

*sheepish* How intensive? She's not going to be all-out, is she? 'Cause, to be honest, I don't know what I think about that. I could picture her in all black or something, but the eyeliner and everything... maybe I'm missing something about goths. :D

I'm thrilled for her because it keeps her out of other people's lives. We're all happy now.

It breaks my heart to see her now. Remember how I just turned 20? She's a month older than me, has been married twice, and has two kids and is pregnant with her third. She's been on drugs and has picked up smoking. Her life's a mess. She'll never admit it to anyone, but I can see it in her when she comes to see me.

You've met bad examples. I'm not hideously intense and never have been. She's got the boots and the black and the liner, but Lois wouldn't let her get too out-of-control with it. I mean, they still have to go out in public. Clark just thinks it's a cute phase and a way to distance herself from Daddy's image, as much as she adores him. That and he knows it annoys Lois.

Kala's like me, she wears it because she likes it and it annoys her mom. She'll only wear stuff that will compliment her. She wears darker shades of red, blue, green. She'll wear white, too. Just tries to stay pale (not too pale because she needs the sunlight to stay healthy). As weird a thought as it is, think of Neil Gaiman's character Death, only not quite as pale. So, no, not too severe.
