The Twists of Fate: Character Profile: Brian Brandywine
Why hello everyone! I'm glad you all enjoyed my Christopher Chronicle from yesterday. I won't be having another one of those for a bit, since i don't work the rest of this week (thank goodness). School is going okay so far, though i'm already really tired either from lack of sleep, or body system failures. (stupid lack of protien). Anyways, since i didn't get anywhere near finishing chapter three, here's a profile of our number one guy, Brian!
Name: Brian Brandywine
Blood Type: A
Hair color: Brown
Eye color: green
Role in “The Blue Dragons”: Lead guitar, secondary vocals (when necessary)
Brian met Karen when they where two, and they have been best friends ever since. Living across the street from one another, the two always played games together, and got in trouble together. Brian’s mother thinks of Karen as a daughter, and she is always welcome at their house. As they’ve grown older, although they’ve grown closer together, Brian has become more and more protective of Karen then ever. He has something important that he wants to tell her, but is too afraid of the answer she might give him. Brian is the somewhat sane person of the group of three. He is glad to offer advice, esp, when it pertains to Karen’s life, but is also the only one who’s not in such a big fuss about leaving the country. Although he wishes to see the outside lands, he prefers his home to anything else. With his mom downstairs, always ready to make him a full breakfast that sometimes even he has a hard time getting all down, and his best friend across the street, Brian would rather just stay put in his comfortable life. Brian is also the captain of the soccer team, and is very physically fit.

Okay, I decided to make a quick post to share my hilarious Christopher Chronicle for the day.
As we all know, i work in a bakery, so today I decided to make some cookies, since the tables where getting empty. So, when you bake something, the smell of whatever you bake travels throughout the store, and you can smell it from anywhere. So, Chris comes back from his break, and says, as he's walking by, "Something smells good back here." I reply, "Yeah, I just made some chocolate chip cookies." and then he says, "Oh, i was going to say it was you," and then gives a thumbs up sign and walks away.
ROFL!!! I mean, wow, not only does this guy hardly speak, but to say something like that! I seriously couldn't stop laughing to myself after we walked away for a good 5 mins. It sure brightened up the night, that's for sure.
Well, my first class went okay, i shall explain later though, cuz i need to get to bed for my classes tommarrow. I got a full day. One from 10am-12pm. and then the next from 1pm-3pm. I just hope i don't get another stomach cramp like i did today in the middle of class. That sucked. Anyways, have a great Tuesday all! *passes out freshly baked cookies*

The Twists of Fate: Character Profile #1: Karen Kaoru
Hello All! And welcome to the first of many character profiles for "The Twists of Fate"!. Our first character is the most important one, obviously, Karen! Following her description is a synposis of the story that i wrote for my co-worker who wanted to know/get a sense of what the book was about. I hope you enjoy it too. Here we go!
Name: Karen Kaoru
Give Name: Karen Mercedes Green
Given Title: First princess of Acetoria
Height: 171 cm.
Blood Type: AB
Hair color: Brown
Eye color: Blue
Role in “The Blue Dragons”: Keytar and lead vocals.
Karen has lost her sense of direction in life as everything is crumbling down around her. As if finding out she was adopted wasn’t enough and that her parents are the King and Queen of Acetoria, now her country is on the brink of war as the rebellious group known only as “Greensblood” goes on a rampage through the city and gains the trust of the neighboring countries. The only person she can trust is a mysertious boy from her past, who just happens to be the prince of a neighboring country, and younger twin of the man she’s engaged too! All Karen used to worry about was school, and if her group’s CD would reach #1, granting them permission and a chance to leave “this god-forsaken country.” Now Karen must save the country she was once so willing to leave, and not to mention figure out the true roles of all the men in her life. Who exactly was that person that saved her in her dream?
A story of friendship, romance, mystery, and war, “The Twists of Fate” will have you guessing to the very end!
(well, i'll try to get Chapter three ready for Wends. If not, we'll just have another character profile, this time featuring Brian. hehe. Have a great weekend ahead!)

Duo's Thoughts on the Day
Hello! And welcome to this installment of Duo's Thoughts on the Day. Hopefully you can gather what i did. hehe. I'm just going to be random, so deal with it. haha.
Why are the band-aid's you get from the doctor's office the hardest/ they hurt the most to pull off?
Wow...I can't believe it...I'm about to start it...my journey towards life has almost began. I'm kinda...scared?
Molly-chan, you are the awesomenesstest person in the world. I had lots of fun thanks to you.
XM radio is the greatest invention ever...
Note to self: Don't ever agree to close and then open the next morning. Never. Never. Never.
Yay!! My Ranma download is almost done! Now i can listen to the greatest opening ever sis!
And I have decided that everyone needs to watch Fafner at least once. Why? Because despite being depressing through the first half of the series, it has a few fun episodes in the middle with a lot of character development, and then it all goes crashing down toward the final battle, which i will not give away. The story line and plot where good, and kept me wanting to watch it. Not to mention it has a wonderfull score. So if you've got some free time, check it out.
And yes, i think that's enough randomness for one day, don't you? Read the story if you haven't. Catch you later, Heat Guy.

The Twists of Fate: Chapter Two: Part Three (final)
“That is nothing any of you need to worry about,” Mrs. Billblock’s stepped into the room, her eyes surveying us. “Ms. Kaoru, I would be very grateful if you didn’t mention this to anyone else. I knew you would tell them as soon as you got a chance.” A small smile came across her face. “But, you mustn’t tell anyone else about the computer, and the secret room. There is nothing important in that computer. It just has my thoughts for the day. You see, it’s kind of like my own personal journal. I like to type what I’m thinking in that computer, and then at the end of the year, I like to see what I thought. It gives me something to do, and it’s sort of a place to spill my guts, as you young kids say. I’m glad that you’re not hurt,” she said as she smiled at me, and placed her hand on my head. “I don’t know how I would of explained it to your mother.”
“Yes, yes…here’s the ice,” Mr. Kensze came into the room, carring a bag full of ice, and placed it gently on my leg. “Why don’t you just lie down, and take a small nap. I know you’ll feel better.”
“But, what about class?” I said as I slowly, the coldness from the ice now beginning to spread.
“Don’t worry,” Mrs. Billblock said. “I’ll talk to your 3rd hour teacher.”
“And I’ll tell him too,” Sarah chimed in. “You just get rested up for tonight, ok?”
“I told you guys I’m not hurt,” I tried to explain.
“Just lie down, you don’t have to sleep if you don’t want to. It will do you some good after that excitement to just relax for a while.” Ms. Kensze said as she pushed me down on the bed and put a blanket over me.
“We better get back to class,” Sarah said as she looked over to Brian. “I’ll come get you for lunch, ok?”
“Alright” I said as I finally gave in.
“Come on Brian,” she said grabbing his arm. “We got to get back to class.”
Brian starred at me for a couple more seconds; his eyes were once again searching mine. I smiled at him, hoping he’d understand that I really was ok. He dropped his gaze and allowed himself to be lead out of the room by Sarah.
(haha, Shadow. You think i'd give away what's really in the computer so early in the book? That doesn't come till book Three actually. So yes, another chapter has ended, and i don't think we've even gotten anywhere close to the actual beginning of the plot line. haha. I love this. Next chapter will bring us more information though, so look forward to it. And while your waiting, be sure to check out "Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu", an awesome series, that has an awesome score! I can't stop listening to the soundtrack. Take care everyone!)

Don't mind the mess!
I'm in the middle of a theme change, you you'll have to mind the mess for a bit until i get this all figured out. I hope you guys like it so far though. I love this series, it's one of my favorites.
Well, i have come to the conclusion that I am evil, and apparently I make people cry? Okay, so i had this fun idea one day that I was going to rule the world by telling everyone "You owe me five dollars." which is in fact true of two people. So i went up and told one of my friends "Hey, (insert name here), you owe me five dollars." Of course he asked, "What for". I said that I charge a loan fee for stuff that people borrow from me, and since he was currently in the posstion of not only my Gundam Wing Box Set, but vols. 4-7 of my Planet Ladder manga, he owed me $5 for each, coming to the conclusion that he owed me $10. Now, i said i'd let it slide if he'd by the newest D. N. Angel for my b-day when it came out, which would be the last of the series. So he agreed, and i laughed for a good five mintues. Then i tell my friend about it, and well, she gets upset. Look, I'm sorry. It was just a joke. Not only was it hilarious, but i can't believe he actually thought i was serious. Wow...apparently i'm too believiable? Ah, so goes the old saying, it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. SO, to sum up, I'm sorry, okay? I'll tell him it was just a joke and he doesn't owe me anything.
Well, besides that, hehe I'm sorry SG. You know what for.
And fun news, my brother moved back home. Isn't that exciting? I just hope i can get used to him being here again. At least i'll have someone to play games with now. Yay for DDR!
Well, i best be off, i've got stuff to work on. Have a great day all!
P.S. Don't watch Fafner, it's a hell of a depressing series.

The Twists of Fate: Chapter Two: Part Two
“Is she going to be ok?”
“Yes, yes…she’ll be fine.”
“Are you sure?”
“Oh, no! This is all my fault.”
“Yes, yes….she’ll be fine. Look she’s waking up.”
I slowly opened my eyes, the light was unusually bright. There was someone’s face right above mine. As my eyes got adjusted to the light I saw that the face belonged to Sarah. Her eyes were confused and scared.
Again she looked at me with those scared eyes, afraid to talk.
I pushed myself off her legs, and stood up, rubbing my head as I did so, and looked around. Everyone was looking at me with fear in their eyes.
“Why are you guys looking at me like that?”
“You…you just fell down two flights of stairs.” Sarah explained quietly.
“So…” I shrugged as if falling down the stairs was a normal occurrence.
“Aren’t you hurt?”
“No, I feel just fine. Come on Sarah, stop looking at me like that.”
“Karen!” I heard Brian’s voice, and turned around to see him coming down the hall. He stopped right in front of me, and put his hands on my shoulders, “Are you ok?”
“Yeah, I just told these guys I’m fine.” I explained again for what seemed the thousandth time.
“Ms. Kensze, is she ok?” he asked as he looked past me to our school nurse, who was standing next to Sarah.
“Yes, yes…I think she’ll be ok, but let’s get her into my office and check her out.”
“Alright everyone, back to your classes,” came Mrs. Billblock’s voice above the whispers of the gathered students. “Mr. Miouga, we need to talk.” She said briskly to him. “I’ll see how she’s doing in a couple of minutes, Alice.”
“Yes, yes…that will be fine. You three,” Ms. Kensze said pointing to Brian, Sarah, and me. “Let’s go.”
Ms. Kensze led us down the hall, we where now on the main floor, and into her office.
“Take a seat, Ms. Kaoru.” She said as she opened the door to revel your standard nurses office. There was a bed on one side of the wall, a desk on the other next to a closet, and the other side contained chairs and various bottles containing different things. The other wall, windows, all material hangings off, and open, letting the cool breeze float in.
I sat down on the bed that was next to the wall. Brian and Sarah stood on the other side of the room.
Ms. Kensze began to examine me.
“Well, I see nothing wrong with you.” She said as she finished. “Do you know how you fell?”
“No,” I said as I sat there thinking. “I must have tripped.”
“Yes, yes…that would make sense. What were you doing in the halls anyway? You were supposed to be in your second hour class.”
“Oh…I was doing something for Mr. Miouga.”
“What an odd request,” she said partly to herself, partly to me. “…ok…you two,” she said pointing to Brian and Sarah. “You take care of her while I go get some ice. It will stop the swelling of that bruise.”
“Bruise…what bruise?” I asked. Then I looked down at my leg. There, right on my shin was a huge purple circle.
“Oh, no!” I said staring at it.
“It’s not that noticeable,” Sarah said looking closely at it.
“How am I going to play tonight? I can’t go out on stage with a huge bruise on my leg!”
“We’ll just put some make-up on it,” Sarah said tilting her head this way and that. “Either that or we’ll just wear boots instead of our shoes.”
“You’d do that?” I asked her.
“Oh, course. What are friends, and band mates for?” she said with a smile.
“Thanks, Sarah.” I smiled back at her, and looked over to Brian.
Brian was still sitting with his back to the wall opposite me. He was looking at me as if he couldn’t believe that what Ms. Kensze said was right. I guess he thought I was hurt. He kept starring at my bruise.
“Brian, I’m ok.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yep.” I said as I smiled up at him, and nodded my head.
He was still looking at me, as if he didn’t believe what I was saying. It kinda looked like he was trying to play the events over again in his head. I guess he was blaming himself. For what reason, I can’t say. Maybe because he had always thought it was his duty to protect me. Or maybe because he just didn’t want to see me get hurt.
“So, Karen,” Sarah attempted to break the weird silence. “Why were you running?”
I looked from Sarah to Brian. His eyes were on mine. He wanted to hear how it happened. I know he wanted to see if there was some way he could have stopped me from getting hurt. I told them all that happened. What was in the room, what Mrs. Billblock’s reaction was, and why I ran out of the door.
They sat there and thought. Both of them. Not saying a word. Sarah kept looking from Brian to me, and then back down at her hands again.
“A laptop..” I heard Brian whisper to himself.
“I wonder why Mr. Miouga was so interested in the computer. I mean, what do you think is in it?” Sarah asked as she looked up from her hands.
“That is nothing any of you need to worry about,” Mrs. Billblock’s stepped into the room, her eyes surveying us.

The Twists of Fate: Chapter Two: Part One
(well, everyone! Here we are, the beginning of Chapter Two! I hope you guys enjoy it as much as you did chapter one. Also, i'd just like to say that even though work was boring today, I did have an awesome entry for "The Christopher Chronicles". If you don't know what i'm talking about, that's okay. It has absolutely nothing to do with ToF, so anyways, on with the story!)
Chapter Two: The Second Hour
Thanks to Sarah, I was feeling better, but I couldn’t get the whole notion that something bad was going to happen go away. My book bag slipped from my shoulder as I watch her walk slightly ahead of me. I readjusted it on my shoulder with an odd tweak of my arm, and almost ended up smacking one of the middle schoolers across the face. I smiled slightly, and nodded my head as I walked backwards. The girl nodded back, and then after registering who I was, smiled and waved. I turned back around, and made my way through the halls following after Sarah, the smile dropping from my face, as I almost walked into her as we met up with Brian outside of the class.
“What’s wrong,” he asked as he held the door open for Sarah and me as we stepped inside the dark lighted classroom.
“You know me too well,” I said quietly I followed Sarah to the back of the class and took my seat next to her, as Brian sat his book bag down next to his desk, and then straddled his chair backwards to talk to us. Brian had been my friend even longer than Sarah had. He was my height and had dark brown hair that was cut short. His semi-long bangs covered his eyes from time to time. Today he had them bushed back, and you could see those green eyes looking at you. He was fit, he played soccer after all, and was the nicest person in the world.
“It’s kinda easy to tell when your best friend doesn’t look well. Are you sick?”
The bell rang to begin the class with an annoying loudness.
“Where’s the teach?” Sarah asked as she looked around the room. I followed her gaze, and saw our other classmates in eager hushed conversations with one another. This room looked exactly the same as the one we had just left. The chalk board sat at the front of the class, so dirty that nothing could be read upon it. The teacher’s desk was right in front of it, a tall pile of books obstructed the bottom of the chalkboard to be actually seen, lopsided from losing a leg the previous year. The windows all looked east to the morning sun, which had risen quite a ways from where it began its trek across the sky. Not all of the windows where open, two near the middle of the classroom where still closed, and their material shade still hang over them, causing the room to be less brighter then it should have been at this time of morning.
“So,” Brian asked, leaning his head on his arms on the edge of the back of the chair.
“I…I met someone this morning.” I said to my hands, that where folded on my lab under my desk.
“What!” He said, almost falling backwards in his chair. He straightened himself, and I looked up into his eyes, and I was confused by the look they held. His eyes were searching mine, trying to figure out the answer to a question he wanted, but dare not ask.
“I see.” He said as he looked down.
“It’s not like that,” I said. “It’s…” I started as I looked down at my hands again, clenching them on my skirt as I told him everything that happened this morning. I didn’t leave out any details, (except the dream). I looked up to him again as I finished, letting my skirt free from the strong grip I had on it. He could usually solve my problems for me, he was good at that.
“Oh,” he said looking down again. It looked like he was contemplating what to say. “Well,” he said at last, “I…”
“Good morning, everyone!” Our teacher said as he ran through the door, red hair waving wildly like he had just transported himself here through a gust of wind.
“Good morning, Mr. Miouga.” The class responded effortlessly.
“Well, I’m glad everyone is here!” He said looking over us very quickly. “I’m sorry to say, I have something to do at the moment, so if you could all stay quite while I’m gone, that would be great. Miss Kaoru, please come with me.”
“Yes, sir,” I said, looking quizzically at him. “Bye,” I said to Brian and Sarah, as I grabbed my bag from its resting place next to the desk.
“See ya next hour.” Sarah said, as she waved. As I followed Mr. Miouga out of the room, I could hear them whispering to each other.
“What, Sarah.” Brain said exasperatingly.
“Why don’t you just tell her?” Sarah insisted.
“I’m afraid of what she might say. I mean what if she says no…”
I followed Mr. Miouga down the hall, which was as dimly lighted as the classroom, and headed up a couple of flights of stairs. The stairs where so worn down, that you could tell where people had walked, the dark traces of the sole of the shoes where evident in the middle of the staircase. On the sides, cracks where beginning to form, and on the 2nd flight, there was a stair that you had to jump over, for the simple fact that the teachers where afraid the whole thing might collapse if it got to much weight on it. After climbing those stairs, and walked towards the end of the hall, we arrived outside of a classroom on the upper level of the school, a classroom I had never seen, or been into before. In fact, I had no idea it existed. Mr. Miouga opened the door with some difficulty, and finally opened it, and a bright flash of light met our eyes as he did. Inside the classroom were thousands of cables, coming out of the walls of the room, and each one was hooked up to one single laptop that was sitting on a desk in the middle of the room. There where no windows in this room, all the light came from the laptop.
“I hear you are good with computers, Miss Kaoru.” Mr. Miouga said with a smile as he ushered me inside.
“Well, sort of…” I said as I shrugged my shoulders, trying to take in the room.
“Take a seat.” He said as he gestured toward the loan chair that sat in front of the labtop.
I sat down in the chair and folded my hands in my lap, as Mr. Miouga stood behind me.
“OK, access it.” He said as he moved the mouse, and a log on window appeared.
“But, how?” I asked. “It’s asking for a password.”
“You know how. Just do it your way.” He said with a smile.
“What do you mean?” I asked quizzically.
“Hack into it.” He whispered into my ear.
“What???” I said as I turned around.
“Mr. Miouga, what are you doing???” came a voice from the doorway.
“Mrs. Billblock!” I exclaimed as she stood in the doorway, the excitement I felt at seeing her overwhelmed and pushed the side the feeling of curiousity that was welling up inside me. Not to mention the fact that the comfort level in the room had dropped by at least 20 degrees.
“Ms. Kaoru, you may return to your class.”
“Yes, ma’am.” I said as I rose to get out of the chair.
“She’s staying right here.” Mr. Miouga said as he pushed me back down. “I know there’s something in that computer, Mrs. Billblock, something you want no one to see, and I’m going to figure it out.”
Mrs. Billblock’s face turned a deep crimson red, her hair seeming to come out of the bun, and clothes about to pop at the seems as she swelled up.
“How dare you accuse me of such things!” she yelled.
I saw my opportunity, and jumped up from the chair, pushing Mr. Miouga aside, and ran straight past Mrs. Billblock and out the door.
“Come back here Miss Kaoru!” I heard her voice yell from behind me, but I kept running. I could tell she was running behind me, trying to catch me, but I wasn’t the star of the track team for nothing. I caught my stride, and sprinted as fast as I could down the hall, and turned the corner to tell Brian and Sarah what had just happened.
“AAHHHH!” The scream echoed through the semi-deserted hallways.

Answers to fun questions!
Okay, so my internet is pissing me off, it just deleted my last post, and i had a fun work story to tell you guys too. Now i'm out of time, and can only answer your questions. I guess it'll have to wait for another day. So now to answer your questions!
Beyblader: Book One has 10 chapters, though the chapters grow in size as the book progresses. (exception being our upcoming chapter two, which is relitivately short). Book Two, which i am currently writing, has 5 chapters so far. And if you think 10 is a lot, me and my friends book we're writing together has 30 chapters! Beat that, haha!
Red Tigress: Now, you know i can't answer your question directly, but i can surely give you around-about answer! There is actually more then one "bad guy" in this story, which will become more clear as time progesses. As for good guys, well, i can say there a lot of them, and that obviously, our main girl is one of the good guys. haha. Though i do love a certain boy with dark brown hair! *giggles*
Niko: You know, actually sitting down and writing is hard for me as well. Usually, when i'm writing, i listen to music. To actually become inspired is the hard part, usually that comes when i'm bored. Like, now that I've gone back to my evening shift at work, i've been getting a lot of ideas there. I know it sounds wierd, but if you want to know how this story actually started, it started in History class Junior year. History was my last class of the day, and there was always a period of 15-20 mins between the time the teacher was actually done talking, to when the final annoucements would come on, and the bell would ring. It was during this time that i started writing the story, with the help of my two friends in the class. As the year progressed, i wrote it in more classes, and had most of it written by Senior year. A lot of the names and stuff are actually suggestions that i have asked my friends over the course of classes, most of them asking what i'm writing, the good friends already knowing what it was. So, i guess in answer to your question, to get in the midset of writing, i have to be bored and listening to music. Haha! It comes and goes though, writing is one hard thing to do, and you can only do it when your inspired, otherwise you mess up the story.
Alright! Chapter Two begins on Sunday, and it's pretty short, so i think it'll only take us 2-3 days. Take care everyone!

The Twists of Fate: Chapter One: Part 7 (final)
“Well, what happened?” Sarah asked quietly as I pulled the seat out and sat down next to her.
“I’ll tell ya later.” I said as I got out a piece of paper.
“Don’t talk to me right now!” I said strongly.
“Okay,” she said quietly as she turned to her work.
I sat there thinking, replaying the events in my head. Why was she so nervous? What had Pete done, if he had done anything at all. The boy was looking at me again. I looked the other way, but I could feel his gaze on me. I just wanted the day to be over. I put my head in my hands. Nothing was going right. Everything seemed distorted. I just wanted to go home.
The bell rang to dismiss the class, and I headed out the door with Sarah, grabbing my book bag and slinging it onto my shoulder.
“Feel like talking now?” she asked sarcastically.
“I’m sorry about earlier…it’s just.” I said as I started to tell her everything that happened.
“Wow, I can’t imagine why she’d be scared of Pete, but I would listen to her, I mean, she’s never steered you wrong before.” Sarah said as she unloaded her books into her locker.
“I know, but…” I said as I leaned against the one next to hers and sighed.
“You want to see him again, don’t you? She asked slyly.
“Maybe.” I said, blushing again.
“Well, I’ll just have to go with you. You know, to make sure you don’t get hurt.” She said as she punched my arm playfully and winked at me as she shut her locker. “Come on, Kare, we’ve got six more hours to go!”
(Congradulations my dear friends, you have now made it past chapter one. Well, what do you think of it so far? If you have any questions, i'll try ot answer them next post as long as it don't give away stuff that is reveled later one. Till then, take care!)
