Great story! The interaction had just the right ring to it, and the touches of humor and wisdom were perfect. Wonderfully done. :)


When Brian Littrell ends up on avowed Yankee Kevin Richardson’s land, dangerously wounded and without a clue as to who he is, Kevin risks his life and his family to care for the injured Confederate soldier. The Richardsons quickly take to Brian as though he is family, knowing that, one day, he might remember and return to fight for their enemies…

What an awesome premise! I can't wait for more. Great visuals, and you really caught the emotions perfectly. Keep up the wonderful work!

Author's Response: Louise! Thanks so much! I'm trying a little harder on this story because it IS different from most of my other stuff, and your compliments are just wonderfully encouraging! I'll try to keep it up!

I think you are capturing the emotions and conflicts very well with Kevin and his family- those were the very issues that folks had to deal with back then. Nothing was black and white, and that comes through beautifully here. Keep up the great storytelling!

Author's Response: *big smile* Gosh, I can just feel my writer's ego expanding at all of your compliments! Thanks so much! I was hoping the conflict would come across well as it is meant to ride through the rest of the story. Good to know it's working! I'll be back with more soon!


Swashbuckling pirates... gun-wielding Disney characters... moonwalking penguins... mind-numbing reality show singing competitions - you never know what the day will bring when you work for Himitsu Takana. And secret agent 008, better known as 00Carter, is ready for anything… just so long as he’s back in time to score with one of his beautiful Carter girls.

He’s Carter… Nick Carter.

Along with the elite agents of HimTak, he’s out to save the world, one mission at a time.

You can't believe how thrilled I was when I saw you updating this story!! Worth the wait, ladies. As always, I love the Lancy bits (LOL). Such great characters, and a lot of wit and humor in the writing. Glad to see you are all back in the groove, and I'm looking forward to each and every update. (Only frown, of course, is nowhere near enough K in these things, but hey.) Hugs to y'all.

Author's Response: Louise!!! You can't believe how thrilled I was when I saw a review from you! Long time, no talk (though it's been a long time since we've updated too!). It's weird, cause is the the third CB-related blast from the past I've had in the last week or so... first someone asked about CB on Twitter out of the blue, then Rachel messaged me about it, and now here you are. Wrong story, but oh well; it's good to hear from you! I'm glad you're still reading and enjoying this one. We're still having fun writing; it just seems to take us forever to actually finish an episode with so many people writing... you know how that goes. Good news, though; K will be featured in the mission of our next episode, so you should get to see him in action! He gets a couple of good parts in this one coming up, too. Enjoy! :)

Another superb episode! This story is such a wonderful, twisted ride. You ladies continually out-do yourselves. Keep up the excellent work, we fans are anxiously awaiting the next chapter!

Author's Response: Thanks so much, Louise! We sure appreciate your feedback and are glad you're still reading and enjoying it! We have so much fun writing it! The next episode is done, so expect the first part of it next Sunday. We're posting part by part now instead of a whole episode at once so that you don't have to wait 3+ months between updates anymore LOL.

Okay, I was doing fine here until you had K doing the song and the *turtle dance*... soda through the nose, THANKS.  Priceless.  And ya know, I can so see Lancy and Kevin doing this ridiculous number, beat-boxing and all.  Jay's girl-on-girl fantasy was hilarious, and when his extended imagination had him pummeling his head, I laughed out loud (literally).  Curious about the rhyming thing... such clever writing! You all are doing an incredible job with this episode, I can tell a lot of work and research went into it. Major thumbs up, and needless to say, I'll be looking forward to each crumb you post. 

Author's Response: LOL Thanks Louise!! We had to include the Carmen Sandiego song in there somewhere, and having Kevin be the one to suddenly bust out in song just seemed hilarious. We had to throw in the turtle dance! The rhyming thing is making fun of the Chief from the Carmen Sandiego TV show; she always spoke that way LOL. Thanks so much!! We put a TON of time into planning and researching for this one, and that's partly why it took SO long to write, so we appreciate you reading and enjoying it!

Poor Diamond, forced to abandon her treasures! Good thing it wasn't Lancy, he would have died from despair.  :)   Really great chapter, major kudos on the research into the codes.  Nice mix of comedy and light drama (the old HimTak ruins... interesting!), and as always the action was fun. This is really superior writing, and I will be eagerly waiting for more.

Author's Response: I know, if it wasn't for the fate of the world, she might've stayed with her things LOL. Thanks Louise! We did SO much research on this, trying to make sure everything was correct. We always love seeing your fabulous reviews. :)

The man-purse. Says it all. LOL!!  I just love Lancy and his exhuberance.

Author's Response: LOL Thanks! We love writing Lancy. He's a lot more fun than Veggie Boy! =P

Such a powerful, dramatic story! Very good twists and turns, with strong emotions and great visuals. As always, your storytelling is top notch. Keep up the wonderful work!

Summary: Past Featured Story

The year was 2012 and the world was at war yet again, but for most of us, the fight seemed far from home. We were just ordinary people living our lives in the southeastern United States, and we had other priorities: families... careers... dreams.

But everything changed that day, the day on which Earth became Hell, the catalyst for a rapid chain of events which would bring us together, while destroying the human race. After that, it was just us: ten strangers against the world, a world utterly different from the one we had known... and it was up to us to save it.

Now you've got me totally hooked! Superb writing so far, ladies... as expected. Nice introductions for each character, I can feel the tension slowly building. Will be prowling for updates. Kudos!

Author's Response: Yay! We're so thrilled to hear that from you, cause you're also an awesome writer. Thanks for reading :)

Whatever the Night May Bring by Mare Rated: PG-13 [ - ]

The week before Millennium is released, the Backstreet Boys are on top of the world. They can sense their lives are never going to be the same, but unfortunately, they didn't intend for it to happen quite the way it did. Once they board a small private plane to take them to do some press in Philly, things take a drastic turn.

You know, this story has turned really creepy! Just the kind of tale I love, because every chapter raises a questionmark. You're weaving a very complex and interesting story, and I'll be checking for updates ruthlessly. Keep up the wonderful work.

Author's Response:

Thanks Louise, glad to know you're reading this and also nice to see you back and writing again! I'm hoping to update this one a little more regularly :O)

Aw, jeeze, the squirrels too! You're seriously creeping me out now. Watches all stopped at the same time... need I say I am eagerly awaiting the next chapter? Great storytelling!

Author's Response:

I know! It was painful to kill the squirrels but at least they didn't have to walk all over them, right? Thanks for reading, Louise. Hopefully i'll get an update out again next weekend!

I think this was a real gem! Landmark birthdays are really a time when you re-evaluate your life and where you've been, as well as where you want to go. Kevin's reaffirming his vitality, his zest for adventure, and his willingness to take risks really rang true. Glad to see he is thinking that life isn't over at 40. Trust me, it's not!

Author's Response:

Thanks for reading and reviewing!  I hated my 30th birthday and was in a bad mood all day (which is rare for me), but it did make me realise that age is just a number.  Not sure how I'll react when I hit 40, maybe I'll do something crazy too!
