It's started a long time ago, but never faded away during all this time. I'm glad it has come to the end, though I don't mean that I didn't like the story. I Love it. And what a coincidence I was just watching 'She's the Man' on the TV. It feels good that your story had a realistic ending, though everyone wasn't 'hapily ever after' like the movie, things fit perfectly. I'm hopeful that it won't be your last tale here, Liz. And lastly, to conclude the comment, I love you (in a perfectly straight authorly way).

Ah, it is in the completed section! It really had finished.

I can't wait for the Luke sequel, so if you can, start it soon, because your fans are dying :P. And also, congrats for finishing DLLAL!

Love,

Yep, as they say on Loony Tunes: "That's all, folks!"

Wow your finished, the last two updates were awesome by the way.
I must agree with everyone else that this is probably the best story on MCMB and i'm a little sad that it's over :(
But then again we get a new story out of it, so yay for that!!! But I do hope Alex stays with Rick.

Any who can't wait for the next story :)

Beccaxx :elmo:


Thanks, Becca!! ^_^

Aww, you're so sweet, thank you!! I'm seriously touched!!

Yes, Alex does stay with rick -- for a while. After all, he's graduating, and she's still in high school, so there might be some problems with that. But yeah, otherwise, rest assure, they will be together for a while! :)

Oh. Wow. I loved it! That was so brilliant! I'm a bit sad that it's the end but
there's a sequel with Luke so woohoo I can't wait for that!

Parasmita is definately right DLLAL is the best story on MCMB.

Love
Tay :mgicecream:


Thank you Tay! Aww!!! Seriously, you guys are like the BEST!!! <333

-sobs- I can't believe it's over! This was one of my favorite stories on the site! I'm so happy I read it and I can't wait for the sequel. It may be about Luke, but with you I'm sure I'm going to love it!

I'm sorry I haven't commented lately!


Aww, thank you! I am currently trying to think of ideas for the sequel. I'm a bit stumped right now... but once it gets going, be sure that it's gonna be up here @ the MCMB!!

I LOVE IT!

I'm gonna miss Rick, though...

-Anna


Ah... Rick. He was such a great character. Yeah, I'm gonna miss writing about him too. When I get to the sequel, you'll see him again, though! ;)

Awwwwwww, it's over? Did she ever stay in contact with Rich? It sounds like she is going forever.
Lizzy1212 :D


Yes, in fact she does. :) And no, she's just going to Eleanor Roosevelt Academy now, haha. Which is ideal -- it's only 10 minutes away from Wallace Academy! XD

It's started a long time ago, but never faded away during all this time. I'm glad it has come to the end, though I don't mean that I didn't like the story. I Love it. And what a coincidence I was just watching 'She's the Man' on the TV.

And lastly, to conclude the comment, I love you (in a perfectly straight authorly way).

-Em


Awww... yeah, that movie is so fun to watch! Never last, my dear!

Aww, thank you! i love you, too (in a perfectly straight, readerish way). ^_-

Ah, it is in the completed section! It really had finished.

I can't wait for the Luke sequel, so if you can, start it soon, because your fans are dying :P. And also, congrats for finishing DLLAL!

Love,

Lizey


Yeah. :(

NOooo!!! I can't let my fans DIE!!! Must write!!! XoX

And thank you, Lizey!


I can't believe this is over! So sad really!
Because this was such a facinating story too.

♥ cerra


Thanks, Cerra!!

You guys are awesome!!! Oh, and I must say (since I wasn't even aware of the Vertigo awards until yesterday, when Loo pointed them out to me):

You guys ROCK!!! Thank you for the nominations!! I was so touched, and I"m honored!! i have one the best reader-fans on the MCMB, I think!!!

That totally revs me up, and now I want to write something totally kick-a$$ and hope it's worthy as a thank you!!!

Much Love!!

Yeah, it HAS been forever since i started this story, hasn't it? Let me check the word document of it. It says the file was created February 2007. O_O Yeah, I"d say that feels about "forever". haha!

Thank you!! And I understand what you mean. I'm sad when stories are over, too. You should have seen me when I found out the manga, Fruits Basket was ending. I was so depressed. :(

PINKY Promise, Gracey!

:)

YAY. Another story from Liz. With a Pinky Promise, no less.
Yeah, this was one of the first stories I started reading when I came to the FP. So, um, yeah.
Write another.
Now.

:P

Love,

Okay, so I kinda jumped on the story wagon a bit late in the game but that doesn't stop me from loving it any less! You've come so far with this story, Liz. You should be so proud of yourself! Wait, Fruits Basket is ending?! :o This is...terrible! It's like I'm losing two best friends in one day. :icon_mecry2: I will truly miss both excellent stories! I promise to be a more diligent reader on the new stories you have.

P.S. Ever read Beastly? It's a YA book with a modern spin on Beauty and the Beast...I remember you had a fantastic re-telling of that once. I have to say that yours rivaled it!

* NEW READER* I love your story. I know a song that's so impeccably appropriate:

It's over and I feel So alone
This is a Sadness I've never known
How did I let
The sweetest of my dreams
Slip Away
And I'm afraid the hurt is
here to stay (unless you make a sequel ;})

Please make a Sequel? And Tell us what it's name is? Or give us a link? please? thanks.

Does it hurt when you get glomped? Because it seems like it does. :D

Wait, when did Furuba end? At #20? That's too short!

Yes, I still remember B&B! It was so beautiful.

Guess what? Stewart is a finalist in the Vertigo Awards for Best Supporting Character!! Congrats! :lol:

Oh my goodness!! O_O I had been M.I.A. this past two weeks, and I come here and see this good news and I'm stunned. I'm not quite sure how the react, I'm that shocked. I went back and re-read some of the scenes with Stewart in it, to see what it was that I'd done right (I guess is how I can put it), haha. And it just almost made me cry, reading about my character and knowing so many of you love him as much as I do!!!

You guys seriously rock, you know that? I love you all, and the banners... they're so beautiful!! I love them both! There are some seriously talented people out there, and I will cherish this always!! Thank you so much!! Thank you for those who voted. And thank you Kat and Julia! This is the awesomest of awesomeness!!!

And to the other winners, congratulations, you guys!!!

Love,
Liz

I wouldn't have come back on here if it weren't for the fact that I was doing my NaNoWriMo story for this year > made me want to look back @ DLLAL story > realized that I LOST the file with the Luke Sequel > Had to come here to find it > came back to my old thread! ^____^

Also, @ Ari-san: wow... I totally missed THAT deadline. :icon_redface: But Congrats to the winners! ^____^

- All thanks to Kat for the banner above! -


Hello, dear fellow muffins, cinnamon rolls, and chocolate-chip cookies! It is I, you're friendly neighborhood Ryter! Here, I am bringing you back my story, "Dude Looks Like a Lady", which intrigue, comedy, more comedy, did I mention more comedy?, and the occasional, much-needed shout-out to Aerosmith! Not to worry, we'll get back to our regularly scheduled program after I repost all of the things I'd posted before!

So onward, my sweet-and-tarty friends!!!

But if you would like some tea, have some! ^_^ (I serve it here regularly).

"DUDE LOOKS LIKE A LADY"

Chapter 1

DON’T FORGET THE TAMPONS!

That was the first thing that rang in my head as I meekly shuffled my way down the halls of Wallace Florence High Men’s Academy.

I mean, I don’t know if you ever had a moment in your life when, I don’t know, you’re dressing up as a guy to, go to an all-boys academy for the next three years? (No? You haven’t? Oh.) But if you have, then you understand what I mean when I say you start appreciating the little things in life - like being able to get a hold feminine hygiene products whenever you want to.

I tugged at my hair once more to make sure the length was properly short. Even though I knew it was short - after all, I nearly cried as Samana neatly trimmed my long, gorgeous brown locks from a glorious near-my-butt length to a tidy three-inches-off-my-scalp.

I learned the hard way that there is only so much to be said for sacrifices.

It still made me self-conscious, however, in my new navy-blazer and kaki slacks outfit that someone, somehow, was going to spot me, and point accusatorily, “WOMAN!” blowing my cover faster than you can say estrogen.

Whatever, that was the old Alexandria, this was the new… er… Alex.

A distinctly male Alex.

Or so I was hoping they’d buy.

When my parents asked me what high school I wanted to transfer to (private, of course; preferably out of state) after the whole fire extinguisher on the teacher in chem lab faux pas (my parents couldn’t show their face in New York society for a month on end), I had a chance to look through high school brochures for the first time.

I flipped through the scarlet and the blue and the red and gold brochures, all looking the same.
It was Wallace Academy’s that caught my eye though. I started to read more about it and discovered that Wallace had a business program unlike any other! It would be the perfect thing to put on my college resume – or better still, my job application – if I could just graduate from there. The had so many great activities and classes like marketing, statistics, advanced econ, all geared toward making you a competitive worker in the job market… it sounded SO wonderful, except for one teeny, tiny problem: you know, the “All Boys” minor detail.

Something my parents will, hopefully, remain oblivious about for the next three years. That shouldn’t be too hard, though.

Well, if I couldn’t get it based on my gender, easy: I could just change it (okay, not CHANGE, change it), and viola! Problem solved. Alexandria Lambkins became Alex Lambkins, check mark gender [Male] and the rest is history!

I’m sure they look at your G.P.A. not you GENDER, when looking through your previous school files. And luckily my name has enough letters to get cut-off on all school documents (Lambkins, Alexand). I must have done SOMETHING right to please the gods, because I didn’t get caught.

And as for mumsy and daddy… by the time their divorce settles (not divorcing each other, of course – that was back in 199-, this is to their new, going-to-be ex-husband and wife), I doubt they’ll realize their daughter did NOT go to Eleanor Roosevelt Woman’s Academy boarding school and instead took a slightly different route, going to the all-boys academy two miles away from it.

I mean, as long as I’m out of the picture, really, does it matter really where I went? In the end, Mom’s still going to refill her afternoon margaritas, while Dad goes golfing with his clientele. Perhaps, someday, years from now, when I’m running my own corporation, I will tell them this little tale of deception, intrigue and adventure… for now…

WHERE THE HELL IS THE LADIES’ ROOM?

I gotta pee sooo badly, but everywhere I turn, it’s just one bathroom, and one where all the boys are going into.

Augh!!!

Seriously, I got to ask a lady or something, because honestly, my bladder is going to burst and –

Oh.


I decided to go for a new color scheme this time - good, no? ^^


Sweet! As Alexandra..oh wait..I mean, ALEX. Deception, Drama, Adventure(as a guy), and BOYS.
Gosh, it sounds like her family has issues. You know, one of those rich families living in a pent house, don't see each other because Mom and Dad is at this and that. Alex sounds like a great protagonist, though. I love how she's risking all this in order to reach her goals. It's inspiring :)
I wish to read more.

Your new reader,

oh my god! It's still here. I remember reading this a few years ago. I reread the ending. I still enjoyed it just as much. (:
