Author Biography

Yes

I've been a BSB fan since 1997 and been writing fanfic off and on since 1999. Started out with my own (ultra teenybopper) website, moved on to FanFiction.net, and obviously now AC is where I currently resign ;)

Nick tends to make an appearance in all of my stories, whether they're about him or not! He's such an attention whore. I've written a lot of Nick romance in terms of my longer stories, but you'll find that my one-shots are mainly about the boys themselves doing what they do best - angsting and being cheesy and bromantic.

Feel free to add me on twitter @sakabelle :)

Wow, this is really good so far! I've written a lot of BSB fics on here and decided to poke around to see if there were any OC ones, and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised! I wish there were more :)

So, I just finished it (I told ya I'd read it :)) and it was awesome! I really like Alyssa (maybe because she reminds me of myself a little, kind of neurotic and spazzy? lol. The ending was really sad, I think it would have been unrealisitic for them to have gotten together and for everything to have been perfect, because there were still some issues there. While a happy ending fits for some stories, I think I bittersweet one worked best in this case. Kudos to you for going through with it even though it probably made some people upset. Oh, and Alyssa's sister really pisses me off, what a little skank! I'm glad Nick finally told Alyssa about that in the end though, even if it's part of what caused her to leave him it was important that she knew. Now if they ever do find their way back to each other they can start off fresh, without any secrets. Anyway, I rambled quite a bit! Great job hun, now I'm going to start reading the sequel :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much for reading Saka! It makes me really happy that you really liked Alyssa because so many readers didn't really like her too much towards the end. And I'm glad you agreed with the ending because I got a lot of flack for that too. I think it was appropriate because like you said there was just too much issues not only between the two of them, but between themselves too. Haha yea Steph's a lil whore isn't she? Well, now you gotta go on and read the sequel! lol

Okay, I figured I should leave you comments on what I've read so far. I love the relationship between Nick and Alyssa. You can tell that they're really close friends, which is of course a good basis for a relationship, but can also make things soo awkward when making that transition. I'm curious to see how they'll handle that. I also really like the three girls together, Nick's right when he says they're like the girls from Sex and the City haha. The idea of their pact amused me quite a bit, but I also thought it was really sweet. And Nick loves her?! Somehow I think Alyssa is not going to be responding with "OMG Nick I love you too!!" Great start to what I'm sure is going to be an awesome read!!

Author's Response: yay! Thank you! I didn't realize you were all the way back here! Hehe nonetheless you'll most certainly enjoy the whole ride!

Summary: Past Featured StoryThe sequel to Broken

It's been a year since the surgery that changed him forever, and at last, his life is starting to look up again. Fully recovered, he feels ready to pursue a relationship with the woman who's been by his side through it all.

Congrats on finishing your story. Yay!

I just started reading it a little over a month ago, after I finished Broken. While I enjoyed reading Broken quite a bit, this story is by far my favourite out of the two. I guess I'm a sucker for drama and romance hehe. I loved your song lyrics throughout the story, you always seemed to pick ones that fit perfectly. The part where Claire left Nick had me in tears, it was so sad. But yay they got back together! It was so sweet how he was always there for her, even when she was so blatantly with someone else. I liked how you brought back the idea of two soulmates dying within days of each other, that was really sweet and touching. It made the end of the story really come to a close, it made it feel finished. I really liked that.

Great job, I'll be looking out for your new stories xoxo

Author's Response: Thanks!! I\'m so glad you liked it! I enjoyed using the song lyrics too; I never used to be into that, but there were some songs that just seemed so perfect, I had to incorporate them somehow. And I\'m glad you liked the ending... I toyed with some other ending ideas that were less cliched, but this was the only one that really felt perfect to me. Thanks again for your reviews! :)

I'm pretty sure that I read some of this somewhere before.. but I'm bored today so I'm going to start it all over from the beginning! Great start so far, Ashley! The writing is very descriptive and it's almost like you can see exactly what Brian is experiencing, which is so important for a story like this. On to the next chap!

Author's Response: Well if you read it anywhere before, it would have been here on AC. This is the only place it's ever been posted since I started writing it. I'm glad you are enjoying it so far. Thanks for the feedback! Can't wait to see what else you have to say! [Ashley]

Wow what a chapter! So Brian had a heart attack, eh? Definitely not a good thing.. I wonder how his family is going to react to that, obviously not well. Still really awesome writing! I love it!

Author's Response: I figured I might as well strike him down quick. I thought a heart attack would do the job nicely. Glad you think so also! Thanks for the review! [Ashley]

Yeah, no wonder Nick is annoyed! I mean the poor guy was up all night and no one bothered to call him and tell him what they knew. Jeez. And I can only imagine what Kevin is going through, shitty deal. I can totally picture him pacing around like that. I'm glad Brian's parents finally arrived, I hope they are able to see Brian soon. Great chapter, hun!

Author's Response: I think Nick reacted rather mildly compared to how I would have reacted, but to everyone their own. Thanks for the review! [Ashley]

That was such a sad chapter :( I hope that they are able to get ahold of Leighanne soon! And poor Baylee, he has no clue what's going on. You could really feel how scared and alone he felt in those first few paragraphs. Great job, Ashley!

Author's Response: I thought it would be appropriate to delve into Baylee's psyche a bit and express how he is reacting to everything. It may be happening to Brian but everyone around him is affected by it also, and I'm trying to show that. Thanks for the review! [Ashley]
