Author Biography


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, 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 :)

This is getting very interesting. I really like what you've done with Brian's character, I think he's coming along really well. I came back from Christmas vacation and noticed that there was 8 more chapters of this written.... very exciting! And very good =)

Author's Response: It\'s good to hear from you again Sakabelle! I\'m glad you like the story so far. It\'s interesting to see people\'s differing views on the characters. I only hope I don\'t disappoint. Thanks so much for the review :)

Really good so far, can't wait to read more! Unsuspecting Sunday Afternoon is most definitely my favourite song off Unbreakable, I can tell you're going to do a really good job capturing it =)

Author's Response: It\'s definitely one of my favorite songs off the album too! I kept reading reviews that the song is very Beatles-esque, which is kind of true. It\'s orginal and it says so much in only a few words. Of course, I\'m sure people understand it in different ways. I hope I can write this story well enough to capture what you think of it. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!

Forgive my overuse of the caps lock. I adored it. The way you were able to convey their emotions and build their characters up to this point. It's brilliant. Amazing. I can't wait to see where this is going... but I do feel sorry for Nick. Poor guy never has much luck with girls heh

Author's Response: Awww, I\'m so glad you enjoyed it. And I love the caps lock :) I\'ve been waiting to write this scene for the longest time and I feared that I couldn\'t do what I had in my head justice. It\'s always hard to write something you see so clearly in your head. It\'s hard to find the right words you know? But I\'m so happy to hear that you thought I conveyed Brian and Leslie correctly, and that I built them up well enough. It\'s very encouraging.. so thank you! I\'ll have a new chapter up soon.

Date: 01/13/08 Title: Chapter 13: Their Story Can Resume

Oh man, this just keeps getting better and better. You're building it up really well. I still feel really bad for Nick, and I also feel pretty bad for Leighanne. They're going to be _pissed_ when they find out about this! The part with AJ and the bread was funny, as was the part with Nick losing his tie, I could totally see both of those things happening in real life lol.

I'm curious to see where AJ noticing Brian and Leslie's glances at each other goes. Sounds interesting.

This is definitely becoming one of my favourite fanfics. I adored this chapter, keep 'em coming! =)

Author's Response: They are going to be pissed! It\'ll be awesome lol. I do feel bad for the both of them though. It would be easier if they were both evil, cause then it could be justified and easy to hate them, but they aren\'t, so it\'s hard. I\'m glad to hear it\'s becoming one of your favorite fics! That\'s very encouraging. A new chapter will be posted soon! Thanks for another great review :)

This is a very bittersweet part of the story. On one hand, it's really cute how they're doing the whole "new relationship up all night talking" thing and really starting to fall in love.... but on the other hand just... GAH! Poor Nick, poor Leighanne.. it's all so horribly horribly wonderful.

And by that I meant I loved every word. I cannot wait to read the drama that's coming up! Seriously, every chapter just gets better and better! I'm very intrigued by this AJ situation, will he be the one to eventually rat on them? Hmm... can't wait to read and find out ;)

Author's Response: Thanks so much Sakabelle! I love reading your reviews. It is very bittersweet. I want Brian and Leslie to succeed but at the same time, Nick and Leighanne don\'t deserve what\'s happening to them. It\'s fun to write about lol Thanks for the review girlie!

I feel so sorry for Nick, I just want to give him a big hug! And yet, you can't hate Leslie and Brian for what they're doing. It's written really well, it's hard to write love triangles in such a way that no one really becomes that bad guy, but you've done an excellent job. Keep up the good work, and as usual this chapter was awesome.

Author's Response: Thanks Sakabelle :) A lot of people don\'t seem to like Leslie and Brian too much lol Which I can\'t blame them, but I\'m happy you\'re seeing past the surface and getting into the emotional wars. I feel terrible for Nick too... I wish I could have made him worthy of being cheated on, but I didn\'t feel that would be right, so there ya go lol Thanks again girlie!

Oooh and so Leighanne is now back in the picture. It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out, I'm wondering if maybe AJ will have a conversation with her? That would be interesting to see. so much tension, argh! I love it.

I must look like such a nerd, commenting as soon as you update but it's just a coincidence, I swear! I totally don't sit in front of AC all day hitting the refresh button.. :P Hehe, but seriously, great work as always. =) Hope you update soon!

Author's Response: I figured it was time to bring her back. It\'s sort of the basic cliche movie plot where everything\'s fine and dandy but then bad stuff has to happen to ruin it for the two \'lovebirds\'. And you don\'t look like a nerd at all! I love your reviews so I look forward to them :) lol I\'ll have a new chapter up soon! Thanks a million!

Date: 01/21/08 Title: Chapter 17: She's Everything But His

That was a really powerful chapter.. I was kind of hoping Nick would catch them yelling or something, but maybe that's just my need for drama :P Really well written, as usual! I'm starting to feel really bad for Brian and Leslie, I wish things were easier for them; it's hard when you want someone so much and it's just not possible :(

Author's Response: You know, I wanted Nick to see it too, because I love the drama as well lol But then it would spoil my plans for the story overall, so I decided against it ultimately. I\'m glad you liked it! It was fun to write hehe Thanks for the awesome review, as always! I shall update soon.

I really really really loved this chapter. Before I went to read it I found a quiet place and a comfy couch and got myself something yummy to eat lol. It's so hard to accurately convey a moral dilemma such as this one, but I think you've done an excellent job. Personally I think AJ should tell Nick and Leighanne, but at the same time I can see his reasoning behind not doing so. Part of me really wants Leslie to end up with Nick, just because he's so enamored with her but at the same, I guess it's not really fair for him to be with someone who doesn't really want him as much as he wants her. I do really like Leslie and Brian as a couple... there's no real right answer to this and I think that's what has kept me reading all this time. So in short, very good! Update soon =)

Author's Response: Yay, I\'m glad you liked it! I kind of struggled with writing it. I read over it a million times and I wasn\'t completely happy with it, but I wasn\'t sure what I could have done to make it better, so I said \"Screw it!\" and posted it lol. A part of me wants Leslie to end up with Nick too, because if not, he\'s going to be devastated, and I feel terrible for him. But anyway, thanks mucho Sakabelle! I always love your reviews.

That was so sweet and so heartbreaking at the same time. I really liked it, and I feel really bad for Leslie. I'm really glad she managed to work things out with AJ, it's good to have someone you can talk to. And now I'm really curious to know what Leighanne is planning. Update, update! :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much girlie. I\'m glad you liked it and there will be an update this weekend sometime!

Date: 01/29/08 Title: Chapter 20: Our Story Stops Here Sweetheart

Aww that was really really sad. Poor Brian and Leslie, and guh Leighanne! >_< Although I guess I can understand where she's coming from. I'm sure Leslie's going to be pissed off when she finds out. Poor Nick, with no clue what's going on right in front of him. *Sigh* What a messy situation indeed. Loved it =)

Author's Response: Yay for sadness! I can understand where Leighanne\'s coming from too. She\'s batshit crazy, but I understand. I wouldn\'t want to let go of Brian either lol And I just want to give Nick a big hug. Hell, if Leslie doesn\'t want him, I\'d take him. Too bad it\'s not real hehe. I\'m glad you liked it Sakabelle! Thanks for the wonderful review as always.

Date: 01/31/08 Title: Chapter 21: Christmas Is Finally Here

Ooooh man Leighanne is going to be _pissed_ when she doesn't get gold earrings! That was really sweet of Brian :) I'm glad Leslie is starting to warm up to Nick a little more, since it seems like there's not any hope for her and Brian. But we shall see, I'm curious to see what happens when Brian figures out that Leighanne's not pregnant because I'm pretty sure he's going to notice when she doesn't have a baby in 9 months, haha! Great job, darlin! This was fantastic, as usual.

Author's Response: Muahahahaha. I love drama. Yeah, hopefully Brian figures things out before the 9 month mark lol Would be sad otherwise. No idea what Leighanne\'s thinking or how she thinks she\'ll pull it off, but we shall see! Thanks for the wonderful review Sakabelle, as always. I hope you have a great weekend!

Date: 02/03/08 Title: Chapter 22: I Heard The World Break

Oh my, so good! Poor Leslie, that's such a rude thing of Leighanne to do. I mean, I can understand why she did it, but if a guy ever cheated on me, I'd really just dump his ass lol instead of conjuring up schemes to get him back! This was a really powerful chapter, I feel really awful for Nick still (not so much Leighanne anymore cause she's acting really bratty!) it's obviously how much he loves Leslie, and she just..doesn't. Awww :( Really awesome, as always.

Author's Response: I\'d totally just dump his ass too. I don\'t know though, I can kinda see her desperation. She\'s engaged to the guy, they were going to get married... it\'s like the ultimate lead on for Brian to keep stringing her along. Kinda has to be disillusioning to be with a man for over 3 years and then all of sudden have him not love you anymore. She\'s crazy though lol I\'m glad you liked the chapter! And I feel absolutely terrible for Nick. He\'s so incredibly sweet! I wish I could throw it in that he really doesn\'t love Leslie back, but that would be too easy, and a little unfair, so I can\'t. Anyway, thankies for your amazing review buddy!
