Yay! I'm first to comment! Can I say how much I love the music, guessing, fanfiction thing? I do. So much! It’s so freaking hilarious and it’s a unique way to rec even more fics.

I don’t understand the love for FFn. When I first started writing and reading fanfiction, Twilighted was my hero. I hated FFn. Now that I’m used to it, I’m okay with it, but I still enjoy reading, reviewing and responding to reviews on Twilighted more.

And vjgm is also my beta for a few of my stories and she’ll work with me if she sees something wrong or confusing. It’s kind of awesome. The others don't so much... blondie might? I'm not sure on that, but vjgm is super cool that way.

And now for a mini Eclipse rant. I’ve posted a longer version of this rant in various places and since you brought it, I thought I’d say something ^_^

I don’t agree with the Jacob only there for a certain purpose thing. In Twilight, he was definitely a plot device and he started out as a plot device in New Moon, but he grew to so much more by the time SM finished the book. I actually enjoyed him (for the most part) in Breaking Dawn, but I don’t think he did what he was meant to do at all in Eclipse, because he was supposed to offer Bella another choice. Yeah, she could have chosen him, but he was so obviously the bad choice because of the attitude and selfishness that SM gave him in that book. And can I say for the record that even though I’m Team Edward, I love Jake to death, I just can’t stand how SM ruined him in that book.

And Taylor is 17. Personally, I don’t think he looks THAT young, but, oh well.

OH! And I think someone said once that The List wasn’t on FFn, but I think I found it. Tell me if I’m wrong… http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4934524/1/The_List

I have to tell you that I'm floored. I had no idea that many of you even read my story, let alone liked it. Thank you so much for your kind words and helping me show people there really is a story in there. I'm just giggly.

Hey Ladies,

I'm at work, so I haven't listened yet, but I was told that Atlas Shrugged was mentioned, so I ran over to see for myself. Thanks so much for talking about it, any and all publicity for my little fic thrills me to no end. Though while I don't want to be a nudge, I can't help but wonder if you're thinking of a different story. Bella never chooses Jake in Atlas, in fact it's kind of the exact opposite! Haha. The premise takes place right after the Eclipse kiss with Jake, and Edward is extraordinarily hurt by it. It's up to Bella to put him, and her relationship back together. It's really about Bella facing the consequences of her actions and maturing, and finally stepping up to the plate for Edward.

Anyways, I wanted to point it out, just in case you all meant a different story, and I don't want it to miss out on a recommendation because it was carrying my name.

Thanks again, either way. :)

OH! Okay, I see. I misinterpreted the first chapter when I read it then. I guess I just thought that Edward was so much more hurt than in the book for a reason.

Haha. seventeenth-episode-cob. Just the title made me laugh. XD

Oh, Passion Fish was taken down because they're trying to publish it as original fiction. I think.

I haven't listened yet (hopefully tomorrow), but I saw you put up pictures of the pack. All I have to say is: PAUL = RAWR

Suddenly, I have the feeling I'm going to like him much more in the movie than I did in the book. Thank GOD the pack runs around shirtless all the time =)

Ok, so this isn't the 1st time I've seen pack pics, but that man deserves to be raved about as much as possible! *slurp*

Okay, so I'm typing this while listening to the podcast. I'm basically talking to my computer screen saying over and over, "Michael Sheen plays Lucian in Underworld. It's Lucian." Secondly, the guy playing Paul, is Alex Meraz and he is fuck hot, sadly married and with a new baby. Taylor is 17! Call me sicko if ya want, but I already somewhat lust for him. The transformation he made from Twilight to New Moon took a lot of work... 30 lbs of muscle-- uh yeah. In about two years, everyone is gonna want some of that. ROB, I still love you!

Claire, I missed you! I read Well, This Sucks: Life According to Seth before you rec'ed it. It is hella funny. I also rec it often. I love Jacob, too. I more of a Switz Chick myself, switching daily between the two. The pic of a guy fighting looks like Alex and not Taylor though. For one, Taylor doesn't have any tattoos. Second, Alex muscles are longer and leaner like in the picture, and Taylor's muscles are stockier and more um....bulging. Did you ever check out that one Jacob fic I sent you in an e-mail? Fall for You by Live720 is a great Jacob/Bella fic. It is also AU and set in New Moon.

I like to read stories as they update. If there is a completed fic, I will sit there and read it until it is finished and not want to move or do anything until I'm done. Not a very good thing when you have little ones to look after.

I love Beautiful Bastard! That Christina rocks my world and I can't wait to see how she makes their relationship work out! Yes, there is a plot, but hot damn, her smut is hot! Hehe, did I say it was hot? Never wanted my panties ripped so bad, haha, sorry. TMI?

Angst's Author's Notes are BOMB! I loved her little snippets at the end, they made me laugh so much. Reviews are better than.... *le sigh* I will miss that. *tear*

This is how I view the validating matter. If it is popular they will have hundreds waiting for the update. When you are first getting started, it might just be you and few others waiting for yours' to get validated. So, kill two birds with one stone-- make room on the epically long list and make hundreds of waiting people happy.

LJ freaks me out, too. The only reason I get on is to read AG's Wide Awake and Of Gemini & Gypsies. I might give it a chance after reading Sam's "How To" on the blog.

Everglow is where I get my massive amount of Rob pics for the Boom Boom Room. Haha, I didn't even know they had fanfiction.

Christina (Limona), awesome on mentioning the one-shot anyways.

So, I am under the impression they you ladies could be okay with Kayne's music if he wasn't such a douche. I couldn't believe Caitlin didn't know Addicted by Saving Abel last week. I love that song. Katy's Perry's song made me giggle like mad.

I cry in fics all the time, no worries. Fab- ulous podcast as usual, ladies! I will be eagerly awaiting the next one. *le sigh* Jasper love and it's b/c they are running out of ideas for Edward. Oh, and Jasper is a Southern Gentleman and that makes him all types of HOT, who wouldn't want to right about that?!


P.S. Um, sorry that was so long. I typed it out as I was listening b/c I always say I want to comment and then two odd something hours later, I can't remember a damn thing I wanted to say.

Thanks so much for mentioning my fic, Gravity! :)

It's a shame- so many people who rec out/mention my story only know it on FF.net (and good god, I HATE it over there for so many reasons).

I'm really active on Twilighted- FF.net is just when I can't stand to wait for validation!

I love your podcast, you ladies are so entertaining!

Lmao, the comment above me sounds like me from a few months ago. I hated FFn. Hated it. Now, not so much. I still prefer Twilighted (for most things), but FFn has grown on me.

I am listening to the episode while I type this. I understand what everyone is saying about sequels, becasue they are often a disappointment. The one sequel that immediately came to mind that I am really enjoying is A Lesson In Fate by LillieCullen. I read the first story, A Lesson In Release and got sucked right in. You should check them out.
