"Talk to your Nike Store neighbors. Make them promise to chaussure adidas pas cher vote. Make nike sneakers thempromise pandora beads to take cheap uggs for women the country back from suivre un envoi the louboutin heels torturers and Jordan Shoes Air thugs. Thepeople who laughed at my friends womens nike air max as they lay fresh in Air max levnÄ› their graves at thebottom TOMS OUTLET of the harbor. Make them promise to talk to their Pandora Outlet neighbors.
"My name is Marcus Yallow. I was tortured by my Jordan Shoes For Cheap country, but I Pandora Store stilllove converse store it TOMS For Sale here. I'm seventeen years old. I want to Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet grow up Air Max 90 in a free country.
I want to live in a free country."298I faded out to the logo of Nike Outlet Store the website. Ange had built it, with help fromJolu, who got us all the free hosting air force one pas cher we could ever christian louboutin outlet need on Pigspleen.
The organization â€” a ugg factory outlet charitable nonprofit â€” had been co-founded byBarbara and some of Nike Polo Sale her lawyer friends right after cheap nike air max the liberation ofTreasure Island. The funding was kicked off by newest lebron shoes some tech millionaireswho couldn't believe that a Jordan Sneakers For Sale bunch of hacker kids had kicked the DHS'sass. Sometimes, they'd ask us to go down the Cheap Toms Shoes Outlet peninsula to Sand Chaussure Air Max HillRoad, where all the venture capitalists were, and give a little Boty Nike Air presenta-tion on Xnet Adidas Neo Discount Sale technology. There were about a zillion Cheap Nike Huarache startups who weretrying to make a buck Cheap Air Max Trainers on Ugg boots Sale the Xnet.
Whatever â€” I UGGS Outlet didn't have to have anything to do Toms Outlet Online with it, and I canada goose jackets on sale got adesk and an office with a storefront, right there on Valencia Street, Yeezy Men wherewe gave away ParanoidXbox CDs and held workshops on building bet-ter WiFi antennas. A fitflops sale uk surprising number of average people dropped in tomake personal Nike Online Store donations, both UGGS For Women of Cheap True Religion Jeans hardware (you can run ParanoidLinuxon just about anything, not ADIDAS NMD SALE ON LINE just Xbox Universals) and cash money. new pandora charms Theyloved us.
The big plan Air Max Femme was to Nike Air Jordan 11 launch our Discount Ray Ban Sunglasses own ARG in Discount TOMS September, just in timefor the election, and to really tie it in with signing up voters and gettingthem to the polls. Nike Air Max Goedkoop Only 42 percent of Americans showed up at the pollsfor the last election â€” nonvoters had Ray Ban Sunglasses Online a huge majority. I kept trying to getDarryl and Ugg Pas Cher En France Van to Uggs Pas Cher Soldes one of Doudoune Moncler Site Officiel our planning sessions, but they kept on declin-ing. They were spending a lot of time Cheap True Religion Jeans together, and Van insisted that itwas totally nonromantic. Darryl wouldn't talk to me much at all, thoughhe sent me Air Max Kopen long emails about just Moncler Outlet Online about everything Pandora Official Website that wasn't aboutVan or terrorism or prison.
Ange squeezed my hand. "God, I hate that woman," she said.
I 23 IS BACK Store nodded. "Just one more rotten Boutique Ugg thing this Yeezy Shoes Discount Marketplace country's done to Iraq," Isaid. "If they sent her to my town, I'd probably Nike Shox Cheap become a terrorist.""You did become a Michael Kors Outlet terrorist when Chaussure Nike Pas Cher they sent her to your town.""So chaussure basket homme I did," I said.
"Are you going to Ms Galvez's hearing on Monday?""Totally." I'd introduced Ange to Ms Galvez a couple weeks before,when nike jordan shoes my old nike schuhe gÃ¼nstig teacher invited me over for chaussures nike pas cher dinner. The teacher's union hadgotten a hearing for her before the board of the nike air Unified School District toargue Toms Factory Outlet for getting her old job back. They Adidas Soccer Cleats Cheap said that Fred Benson was299coming out of (early) retirement to testify against her. I was Cheap Retro Jordans For Sale looking for-ward to seeing her again.
I Nike Air 90 checked Discount Air Max my email one more time â€” my PirateParty email, adidas outlet which Hogan Outlet stillgot a dribble of messages from old Xnetters who hadn't found my Coali-tion of Voters address yet.
"Who's that from?"I laughed. "Zeb," Kobe Shoes Nike I said. Pandora Store "Remember Zeb? I gave him Masha's email ad-dress. I figured, if they're both underground, might as well introducethem to one another.""He Moncler Outlet Store thinks Masha botas de futbol is cute?""Give the guy a break, he's clearly had his mind warped bycircumstances.""And you?""Me?""Yeah â€” Canada Goose Outlet was your mind warped by circumstances?"I held Ange out at arm's Descuentos Nike length and looked her up and down Nike Shoes Discount Marketplace and upand Adidas Shoes Discount Marketplace down. I held her cheeks and stared through her thick-framed glassesinto her nike sportschuhe big, mischievous tilted Moncler Sale eyes. I ran my fingers through her hair.
"Ange, I've never thought gÃ¼nstige nike schuhe more clearly in my whole life."She kissed me then, and I retro jordans for cheap kissed her Nike Air Sneakers back, and it was some time beforewe nike mercurial soccer cleats went Pandora Store Sale out for that burrito.This chapter is Air max dam dedicated to The Tattered Cover, Denver's legendary in-dependent bookstore. Moncler Outlet I happened moncler jacket sale upon The Doudoune Moncler Femme Pas Cher Tattered Cover quite by Original Ugg Boots acci-dent: Alice and Ugg Pas Cher Femme I had just landed coach factory outlet online in Denver, coming in from London,and it was early and cold and we needed coffee. We drove in Yeezy Boost Sale Online aimlessrental-car circles, and that's Adidas Yeezy Cheap when I spotted it, the Tattered Cover'ssign. Discount Christian Louboutin Shoes Something about pandora outlet store it tingled in my hindbrain â€” I knew I'd heard ofthis place. We Michael Kors pulled in (got a New Air Max 2017 coffee) Adidas Originals Superstar and stepped into the store â€” awonderland of Vans Black Sneakers dark zapatillas nike baratas wood, homey reading nooks, and miles and miles ofbookshelves.
The Tattered The official UGG Cover 1628 16th huarache sneakers St., Denver, CO USA 80202 +1 UGG Boots Cheap 303 Coach Bags On Sale 4361070None of the Canada Goose Online Store three guys were around at the moment, so I took Official NHL Jerseys off. Nike Air Max Cheap Myhead hurt so much I thought I must be bleeding, but my hands cameaway dry. My Nike Air Max Sale twisted ankle had frozen up in the truck Nike Air Damen so Moncler Jackets Discount Marketplace that I ran Scarpe Nike Scontate like abroken New Nike Shoes marionette, and I stopped only once, to cancel the photo-deletionon Masha's phone. I turned off its Ugg Outlet Online Store radio â€” both to Cheap Nike Air Huarache save battery Nike Shox discount Sale and tokeep it from being used to track me â€” and set the sleep timer to twohours, the Cheap Nike Free Run longest nfl store setting available. Adidas Originals Stan Smith I tried to set Cheap Air Max it to not ã‚¸ãƒ§ãƒ¼ãƒ€ãƒ³ ã‚¹ãƒ‹ãƒ¼ã‚«ãƒ¼ require a pass-word to wake from sleep, but that Nike Outlet required a Pandora Style Beads password itself. I was justgoing Cheap Toms Outlet Store to have to tap the Nike Air Women keypad Nike Shoes Sale Store at least UGG BOOTS FOR WOMEN once every two hours until Icould Canada goose dam figure out how to get the photo scarpe nike off of the phone. I would need acharger, then.
I didn't have a plan. I needed one. Mens Nike Air Max I needed to Hyperdunk 2014 sit down, to get Nike Shoes Online onlineâ€” to figure out what I was going to do next. I was sick of letting otherpeople do my planning for me. I didn't want to be toms shoes outlet acting because of longchamp bags on sale whatMasha did, or because of the DHS, or because of my dad. Or because ofAnge? Well, maybe nike tn pas cher I'd act because of Ange. That would cheap uggs be just fine, nike air jordan pas cher infact.
267I'd just been slipping downhill, nike shoes taking alleys when I Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 For Sale could, mergingwith Yeezy Black the Nike Pas Cher Femme Tenderloin crowds. I didn't have any destination in mind. Everyfew minutes, I put my Michael Kors Clearance hand in Nike Factory Store my pocket and nudged one of the keys onMasha's TOMS STORE phone to keep it from going asleep. It made an awkward Coach Outlet Store Online bulge,unfolded there in my jacket.
I stopped and leaned against a building. My ankle was killing me.
Where was I, anyway?
O'Farrell, at Hyde Street. In front of a dodgy "Asian new jordan releases Massage Timberland Outlet Parlor."My traitorous feet had taken me right back to the beginning â€” taken meback to where Nike joggesko the photo on Masha's phone had been Bottes Ugg Femme Pas Cher taken, seconds Nike Air Huarache For Sale be-fore the Bay Bridge blew, before my life changed forever.
I Nike Air Pas Cher wanted to sit down on canada goose jacket outlet the pandora jewelry store sidewalk and bawl, Michael Kors Handbags Discount but Abercrombie and fitch store that wouldn'tsolve my problems. Nike Air Shoes I had to vans shoe store call Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens Barbara Stratford, Scarpe Air Max tell her what Canada Goose Outlet hadhappened. Doudoune Moncler Pas Cher Show her Cheap Michael Kors Tote Bag the Air Max Pas Cher photo of Darryl.
What was I Zapatillas Air Max thinking? I had to show her nike sb stefan janoski the video, the one that Mashahad Cheap Louboutin Heels sent me â€” the one where the President's zapatos de futbol nike Chief of Staff gloated at theattacks on San Francisco and admitted Chaussure Nike Air Max Pas Cher that he knew when Negozi Pandora and where thenext attacks would happen and Christian Louboutin Heels that he wouldn't stop them becausethey'd help his man get re-elected.
That was a Louboutin Wedding Shoes plan, then: get Reebok Outlet Store in touch with Barbara, give Soccer Boots Outlet nike her the docu-ments, and get Adidas Superstar them into print. The VampMob had Nike Factory Outlet to have reallyfreaked people out, made them think that Stone Island Outlet we really were a ãƒ¢ãƒ³ã‚¯ãƒ¬ãƒ¼ãƒ« ãƒ¬ãƒ‡ã‚£ãƒ¼ã‚¹ bunch of ter-rorists. Of new yeezy shoes course, when I'd Boost Yeezy Sale On Line been planning it, I had been thinking of howgood Nike Huarache Womens Cheap a ugg clearance distraction it would be, not how it would look to some NASCARDad in Nebraska.
I'd call Barbara, and I'd do it smart, from a payphone, putting Air Jordan Retro Sale myhood Billige Nike Sko up TOMS SHOES OUTLET so that the inevitable CCTV Adidas Superstar Sale Online wouldn't get a photo of me. I dug aquarter Adidas Originals Sale out of Adidas NMD For Sale my pocket and Official Toms Shoes Outlet polished it on my shirt-tail, getting the Cheap Real Jordans fin-gerprints off it.
I headed downhill, down Canada Goose Womens Coats and down to the BART Air Max Sneakers station and thepayphones asics sko there. I made it to the trolley-car stop when I spotted the cov-er of the week's Bay Guardian, stacked in a high pile next to a homelessblack reebok running shoes guy who smiled at me. "Go ahead and read the cover, it's free Air Nike â€”it'll cost you fifty cents to look inside, though."The headline was set in the biggest type prada outlet I'd Nike Roshe Run Sale seen since 9/11:

I got actual goosebumps when Benny appeared! IT'S BEEN SO LONG, MY FRIEND! I HAD ALMOST FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOUR EXISTENCE! But that's not your fault *glances at the squirrel behind the computer* Now off to get me some Vaaaaas, finally, omg omg omg *runs around like a dog chasing its tail*

so i've been following this story since may of last year? and wow i'm really sorry i haven't left a review at all. talking to people, even if it's to compliment their work, scares the shit out of me, but that's no excuse, especially when i made an account specifically so i could read this.
so! wow. bamf reader sure is a sight to behold and i'm super excited to see her again. and vaas. but mostly bamf reader. maybe punching someone. preferably allen.
Author's Response: No worries! I know that feeling all too well but don't be scared. I'm not mean and love meeting you guys. Makes doing this even more fun, ya know? I pick my nose when no one is looking just like everyone else. .......right? >.>
And I love how she' has developed, all on her own. I sat down with no idea what I was gonna do with this story and thankfully she took the lead for me. There will definitely be some BAMF reader moments coming. She's wounded and pretty much done with everyone's shit at this point. lol

ARGH. I CAN'T WRITE YOU A REVIEW THAT MAKES SENSE AFTER THIS CHAPTER. TOO BUSY ANTICIPATING WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT DX Though I suppose that's enough of a review in the first place >_>
Author's Response: SMARTASS! *squishes your face* You could just ask. I'd probably tell you. Bribes work well, just sayin'.

Ohh I wonder what reader has thought of now. Good luck to Dennis with "turning" her into a Rakyat warrior or whatever... >_> I like that you brought up reader's dilemma again, with her knowing that Vaas isn't the best for her but still not wanting to leave. It feels like it's been too long since the last time, it almost seemed as if she had already been 100% converted to his puppet, as it were xD
Author's Response: She has been though, hasn't she? All the crap she's putting up with, willing to stay? Who's wrapped around whose finger and does it even matter? She doesn't want to be used and that's why it bothers her but she does have power, whether Vaas is letting her imagine it or it's real. They're both playing games and we'll see how far it goes before it blows up in someone's face. Vaas is just as much a puppet as she is though, sadly. Fucking Hoyt.

You always manage to update when I need an outlet the most -- bless your face for that, madam~
I like how you described Dennis' tattoos, making them sound extensive; for someone of such rank in the game, he never seemed to have the tatau to match. I could chalk it up to his being an outsider, but if Jason can be given a full sleeve in such a short time, it doesn't make sense to me for Dennis not have more than him.
Also this: You press your teeth together, tightly, fighting the urge to correct him. Not to prove him wrong but because the label stings like a snake bite; harmless on the surface even as the venom spreads beneath with every pump of your erratic heart.
Prisoner. Slave. Puppet. Toy.
"What is it going to be, Swiftlet? One? All? Do know what you are to me? Do you even care about such bullshit?"
The ghost that haunts your mind in his absence appears at the foot of your bed in the time it takes you to blink. It should frighten you how easily your mind betrays you; how broken and dependent you've become because of one man. One place. The poison sinks deeper with every word, every intake of breath, and you don't want it to stop. God but you need it. -- is my favorite part. She's so far down the rabbit hole now and there's no coming back from this. Heavily reminds me an Alive quohte:
Who are YOU?' said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, `I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'
`What do you mean by that?' said the Caterpillar sternly. `Explain yourself!'
`I can't explain MYSELF, I'm afraid, sir' said Alice, `because I'm not myself, you see.' Dennis would be the caterpillar in this case; the whole scene with the caterpillar actually reminds me of them, as Alice and the caterpillar discuss the meaning/difficulty around change. Whereas the caterpillar knows they will metamorphosize into a butterfly, therefore neither fearing nor being disrupted by his evolution, Alice struggles with all the changes wrought by Wonderland, such extreme evolutions never bring part of her original life.
Reader has been overwritten from the inside out and I can't wait to see where she goes from here, how she restructures herself, and how she survives. And I wonder if she'll keep this addiction -- if she'll let it consume her -- or if she'll master it and make it her weapon.
Lovely update as always, m'lady. (And apologies for rambling all over your review box xD.)

Love it, adore it. Need more. Seriously, I'm really glad you're still continuing this, I honestly thought you dropped it and that was depressing to think about. Most great stories, especially reader inserts, are dropped cause the writer either lost interest, not enough people were interested in it, or the writer quite literally vanished from the internet. Can't wait to see what you got in store for Swiftlet though.
Side note, I'm not sure if you'd be interested but maybe take a look at the band Anberlin? I quite enjoy their songs and they have one that I think would describe Vaas and Swiftlet's situation pretty well called Little Tyrants. When I think about it, alot of Anberlin's songs fit this story rather well actually..... Little Tyrants, Intentions, Someone Anyone, Godspeed, Hearing Voices, Reclusion...... really, I could go on.
You should check them out, maybe they'll keep you motivated to keep writing cause I really want to keep reading this story. It's very well written and kinda crazy, and I quite like crazy things.
Anyway, keep up the amazing work. I look forward to reading more. :)

I think I'm gonna start this review by saying I don't know how I feel about Allan, lol. 'Cuz he's at the forefront of my mind after reading the latest chapters. I get why he's acting the way he does. I understand it and he might have a point here and there.
But dammit if he isn't an asshole! XD My goodness, he shot Reader and is all manhandling her like she isn't in pain and look at what happens! An infection. Jeez. At least we get to see Earnhardt again. I like him. I wonder if he'll be able to help Reader out at all? Maybe tell Vaas? And who's the chosen clientele that he's talking about? Very curious. =w=
Ahhh, what else. Oh! Thank you for the Vaas hallucinations. I miss him. I know he'll be back soon. But still.
Awesome update! Looking forward to reading the next chapter!
Author's Response: Bless you~ I'm glad I could make him a bit understandable as far as motivations go but yes, he is an asshole. lol Those are the best kind though. Like it wouldn't take much for him to be a descent human being. He could just leave and let reader go about her business but nooooo~ He has this twisted version of redemption driven by greed and anger and she's caught in the middle. Earnhardt will play a pretty important role coming up. Bless him, too. The clientele bit? He sells drugs to the pirates and Hoyt's privateers. That's why Dennis doesn't want to linger very long. Bad place for him to be. xD But Citra wants reader to live so she needs medical care and they were very close by so...and you're welcome for the Vaas. I know you guys must miss him and I've felt guilty about that. It's reader's story though and Vaas isn't clingy now that he knows she's strong enough to handle herself. He'll be popping up more and more (whether real or not) so don't worry.
Date: 06/02/15 07:26 pm Title: Addiction
Glad to be back reading this fine story. Lol i wonder what Citra thinks of ____, is she looking for revenge or a new female recruit? I hope for the next chapter soon. 😃
Author's Response: And I'm glad I was able to get it updated for you~ Thank you, lovely. As for your question, the next chapter might answer that for you. If you read between the lines. ;D If I give it away that won't be any fun. Knowing Citra, what does your gut tell you?

And I say! Another fantastic chapter. What a fun little adventure that was. I went through and just watched so many cutscenes and ruined the story for myself. I really can't say I liked the ending of the actual game-- I'm a realistic happy ending person if you catch my drift.
Always like my happy endings. Reader come to remind me of a wolf. They're lovingly loyal creatures but very bad pets. Everyone wants it and they get bit instead! ./bad analogy
Author's Response: From Vaas' death onward I hated the game. Even before I became obsessed with him. I hate Jason and his snotty little attitude and selfish disregard for his friends and little brother. Before and after. Sad thing is that's the entire point. The premise is making fun of action movies/games. Like the fact that you can, and likely choose to, run around collecting pelts and sightseeing while your friends are in danger. Typical white man is tasked with saving the 'savages' . The good ending is actually the one where Jason dies because he fulfilled his dream of becoming a true warrior. In their attempt to make a mockery of the action genre, all they really succeeded in doing was cheating us out of one of the most creative, interesting, and heartbreaking villains (imo) to ever grace a tv screen. Vaas' death was cheap, handled poorly and not given the justice it deserved after promoting him like crazy and he wasn't even the main villain. He should have been. There should have been a choice to join him or join Citra. And don't get me started on her. It's possible I hate her more than Jason. And that's a lot. The only way I can replay the game is by pretending he's my reader just with manly grunts and I go around killing Raykat. It makes me smile. The scenery and Vaas are worth it. And I approve of the analogy. Thankfully she's found her pack and the Alpha to lead her, yes? All the pirates are her adopted cubs!!!! *mauled by tigers*

Yes! I knew from the mention of needing medical care that he'd show up soon enough~ x3 I've always had a soft spot for the doc and it makes me really happy to see him again.
Where will it go from here though~? So many questions... I'm going to be pondering possible answers until the next update. You know~ the one I can't wait for. ;D
Author's Response: All the soft spots! His story breaks my heart so much. Where will it go? Only I know. Kinda. *cough* It's gonna get worse before it gets better, of that I'm sure. Reader has the worst challenge of all right ahead of her.

I haven't heard 'Disappearance of a Girl' before, but another good song by Phildel is The Wolf.
Not sure if Dennis showing up is better or worse. I suppose he might be a little less trigger happy, but getting sent to Citra could pose a lot of problems. Personally, I can't stand her and would love to see her gifted with either a bullet or a knife. If she does make an appearance though it'd be very interesting to see what kind of impression she makes on Vaas' little Swiftlet. :3
Author's Response: The Wolf is actually my song for Solas from DA:I. First one I ever heard by her thanks to Tumblr. Find a lot of good songs there. I'll put it this way: if reader ends up in Citra's clutches she is going to die. No question. I think reader has that vibe even if she doesn't fully understand the reason. She's about to understand a lot of things though thanks to Dennis. It'll be interesting to see them chat since they're pretty much in the same situation.. They were both saved and are completely devoted and found worth with Citra and Vaas. I was hoping to get him in the story just for that reason.
