Default BETH updates

"Beth" is a fanfiction I began writing when I graduated from college in 1995. I've worked on it off and on since then. Last year I began posting it at fanfiction.net.

The summary is: "Just when all hope seemed gone, Beth Calavicci had a most unusual visitor. Picks up where MIA and Mirror Image left off and offers glimpses into life for Beth and Al from that day forward."

It's written in the first person from Beth's point of view (with the exception of the prologue <g>) and each chapter is a separate date.

Click here to access the first part of "Beth"

I will post in this thread as I update it.

12-24-2006: Chapter 35--Thursday, April 22, 1982 now posted.

Default wonderful!!

Heya Jennie! I just wanted to drop a note to tell you how much I am enjoying the story.

Personal things got in the way of what's happenin' in my life, but the FIRST thing I wanted to do was catch back up with Al and Beth and what's going on in their lives...

The girls are PRECIOUS!! I am sitting here laughing with joy thinking of what they are like! The final story about the carpet burns on Theresa was just fantastic... and the makeup incident was so real it was hysterical!

Keep it up...

hugs!

Matt

Default Thank you!

Thanks, Matt! I can't tell you how pleased it makes me to hear that you are enjoying the story so much. I'm also glad that you find the girls so endearing; it's been a lot of fun developing their personalities, as well as coming up with scenarios for them in addition to Beth and Al.

Thanks, Sarah. It's been the upside to not working since Katrina. I've had writing time. I'm glad you're enjoying the story. I hope to get a new chapter up in a couple of weeks.

Thumbs up

Wow. This has been so much fun to read. I used up most of my shift reading chapters 1 through 18. It's almost the end of my shift now, but I do have a reason to look forward to returning to work tonight: Chapters 19-27!
Thank you so much!

As always, Beth is soooooo good. Anyone who hasn't experienced this piece of FanFiction should check it out. As Al the Observer said, it's definitely something to look forward to!

I hope to see you in chat again now that Lent is over!
