=======================================

ORIGINAL POST FOLLOWS:

Okay... just kinda decided that I wanna start playing in an RPG... so I'm gonna throw out some ideas and see if anybody's interested...

'Finding a new balance:' Okay, this is a very simple, basic idea... start in the middle of the episode 'Balance' (wherever people want to,) and continue from there. (I picked 'balance' because that way whoever play Max and Liz can keep the breakup at the end of that episode from happening. *happy* ) Characters would include Max, Liz, Michael, Isabel, Maria, Alex, and River dog, plus anybody else that people want to bring in. (Oh, and frickin' Eddie??)

Crazy summer: Between first and second seasons, with Liz in Roswell. Could be either UC or CC... I'd love to see this one as a UC rpg, but only if there's enough interest to fill it, obviously.

Whirlpool: Begins a day or two after 'Into the woods.' Investigating the woods around Roswell, someone finds a cave with an unearthly machine inside it. The person or people who discover it press the wrong control and it sends one of their (?) kirlian auras to another planet briefly. When the gang investigates in detail, they find out that the alien device can transfer auras here on earth as well... but there are powerful forces trying to get their hands on the device, both human and alien.

Wolf in sheep's clothing: Set immediately after 'tess, lies, and videotape.' Tess really *is* Nasedo. :D Up to whoever wants to play Ed Harding what his role in Nasedo's plans is. ;-)

Hmm... let's leave it as those four for now. No real need to get into the insanity that is season two - what with season one showing on roswell there should be plenty of peeps looking forward to a season 1 roswell rpg. Am I right? *happy*

Liz

Liz sighed as she saw yet another person sit down in her section. Lunch rush was getting crazy, and she just didn't feel up to it right now.

She brushed her hair out of her face and readjusted her antenae. She put a smile into place and went to greet her customers.

"Hi I'm Liz I'll be your..." Liz trailed of when she saw them come in.

Them...

She couldn't be a part of them anymore. Especially not a part of Him.

He belonged to someone else.

Not to her.

"I'll be your waitress this afternoon" She continued to her table immediately brightening.

Once she finished taking their order she wennt to the back where she found Maria reapplying her lip gloss.

"Maria. Its max. please you have to take this table for me. I can't see him...not yet"


Britt.

Hope its cool I started!
posted on 16-Jan-2003 10:59:50 AM by Chrisken
OOC: Okay, I guess Britt's started it off. Continue sounding off if you haven't, or just post and we'll know that you're here, LOL.

Oh, also, I'm following britt's lead on third person instead of first person... if enough people want to change to first person we can but I'd like a little consistency LOL.

Max

Max hardly even realized that he was waling into the Crashdown. His mind hadn't stopped whirling ever since they had gotten the message from his mother. Since Liz had run away from him.

He could barely grasp the situation. An entire world, enslaved or something, waiting for him and Michael and Isabel to come back and save them. And Tess. A king, and a prince/general, and a princess, and a queen. And his mother, his *real* mother, was waiting back there for him. Counting the days until she could hold him, touch him, know that he was still alive. And there were evil aliens right here on earth, searching for him... probably beings much more dangerous than agent Pierce and the FBI had ever been.

All that Max knew for sure was that when he looked at Tess, he knew he didn't love her. He loved Liz, he always would. Could she have lived through the past year and not learned to trust in that? She had been the one to convince him, when he thought the barriers between them were too high to climb.

And then, he saw her.

"Liz..."

She hurried away into the back of the cafe, still avoiding him. How could he tell her how she felt when she wouldn't even stay in the same room with him.

Then he caught himself and looked at his companion(s) somewhat sheepishly.

"Umm... should we get a table?"

(I tried not to presume who Max is with... Tess I assume, or Liz wouldn't have gotten so upset. Are Michael and Isabel with him too??)

(Figured I should take over now. I didn’t know who Max was with so I just said Tess) (ok I know its short but and I don’t know how good it was but I’m just starting so I’m trying to get the feel of the story)


“Yeah sure Liz don’t worry I’ll take over.” Maria said knowing seeing them together was killing Liz. She gave her a squeeze on the shoulder as she walked past her with her order pad ready.

“What can I get you?” She asked plastering a fake smile on my face. How could they be so insensitive a guy that claims he cares so much about her but then to come here with her she just didn’t get it.

“Hey Maria.” Tess said with that sickly sweet smile that made her just want to smack her.

“What can I get you?” she repeated rolling her eyes at her comment.

“Two will smith burgers with French fries and cherry cokes.” Tess said starring at Max he wasn’t even paying attention to what Tess was saying. Maria could tell he was still watching the door where Liz had disappeared through,

“Alright I’ll be back with your drink.” She said with another smile before I left. She was going to go make sure Liz was holding up.

~*Serena*~



I hate this....I really hate this. Just because their traveling, I have to move my life.


To some Uncle,aunt, and cousin in Roswell. What kinda people live in Roswell?


I look out the window at my town one last time....my parents waving me off.....I'm 16 for crying out loud!! I can take care of myself.


But no, "Serena dear.....we're doing this for your own good", My mother told me..how much does she know?


Ok....so once I nearly burned the house down when I tried to make dinner....but I was young.....everyone blames the litle fires around the house on me.


Maybe they are my fault, who knows, they kinda happen when I get mad....and that's alot,weird,huh? I lean back and look forward to my knew life with people I don't even know.......fun.....I hope.

Hey all! I am Andrea (but I usually go by Andy). I am going to be playing Michael in the rpg. I've never played him before, so bear with me. I might royally suck. lol. Glad I could join!

~Michael~

I sit here in my apartment, trying to avoid anyone and everyone. Who in their right mind would want to associate with a murderer? It may have been done in self-defense, but I did kill Pierce. I took a life. For the first time in my sixteen years of existance, I used my powers in a harmful way. That's nothing to laugh about.

Hours later, I learned what I wanted to know all my life. Who I was, where I came from, why I was on earth. It's funny. Once I realized my purpose, I wish I hadn't found out in the first place. I am a soldier. I am Maxwell's second in command. It makes sense when you think about it. Every king needs an impulsive side-kick to help him make important decisions. It seems like I've been doing that all my life.

Now all we have to do is save an enslaved planet. A place none of us have set eyes on. Piece of cake. Four teenagers from Roswell, New Mexico can definately do that.

But that's not even the half of it. Isabel is my fiancee. Isabel. God, the thought of she and I...together. It doesn't seem right. Some people might even call it incest. She's like a sister to me. Sure...we had those dreams awhile back. But it doesn't mean I wanted her. I want Maria. I broke up wth her to keep her safe, but I really do love her. She's the only human who has fully accepted me for what I am.

But sometimes, you have to give things up. The four of us need to save our people. For now, I'll just have to live with that.

~end Michael~

I don't know where Kyle and Alex are so lets just say that Kyle is at....oh! Football camp remember....so alex is just observing

Alex-

I sit at a booth alone, with just my guitar and a sheet of music. Maria and I are going to write a song together about....well just about life.

I have a half drunken orange soda infront of me and am biting my pencil.

Pencils taste bad. I am not just talking bad I mean horrible. IT just wood and lead but if you bite the eraser....well lets just say wood tastes a lot better than eraser shavings.

I am bored.

Nope, understatement of the century. I mean, I am so bored I am talking to myself about how bad pencils taste...while biting my pencil.

Welcome to my life. Population three: me myself and I. This is my schizophrenic world. Would you like to join?

Ok, here I am bored out of my mind....chewing on a horrible pencil...watching my two best friends serve desgusting no life people with nothing to do in their poor pathetic lives but eat, go to school and sleep.

Not only that but the song I am trying to write sucks.It might be because all the good songs are already written but I think its because I can't find anything to rhyme with heart other than bart and I don't think its a good idea to write a love song that goes:

I can only hear the beating of our heart
Why won't you understand
The aching of my bart

So you see my dilema.

I go back to my pencil chewing observing thing I have going on and I think to myself.

They should really make flavored pencils.

Have a nice day.

that was fun to write! lol!

Well, we have no idea when Kyle left for football camp, and just like Liz, we can even overrule that and say he stayed in Roswell. But that's up to you.

Anyone mind if I bring in an evil alien bounty hunter or something? ;-) I'm getting bored here waiting for Tess to show up.

Sorry....kyle is going to be home from camp soon...is that ok...wait hers an idea! Alex is WAITING for kyle to come home...her ill write it...

Kyle-

I drop my stuff off at home and decide to pay a visit to the Crashdown.

I pull up and hop into the booth with ALex.

"Alex, hey waz up?" I ask playfully.

Alex looks up relieved.

"man, I was so bored. thank god your here." He said happily.

"How was camp?" He asked.

I groaned.

"Aww man it was aweful. I still have sore muscles." I held my side and grimced in pain.

"Yeah well here in alien land things have been boring. Everyone is ignoring everyone and I have been sitting here for the past hour biting my pencil."

I raise my eyebrows at him.

"What are you working on?" I ask, sliding the paper he was looking at over.

"Just a stupid angst song." Alex said, chewing on his pencil.

"Bart?" I question.

"Well...if your so smart tell me what else rhyms with heart?" He asked angerly.

"Don't get your panties in a twist. How about smart?"

"Great Idea!" Alex grabbed the paper.

Just than Liz ran over.

"Lizzie!" I run up and hug her.

"Kyle! How was camp?" She asks happily.

"Painful." I say groaning.

Maria walks up laughing.

"Hey bro."

"What?" I ask narrowing my eyes.

She laughs.

"Our parents are dating." She says meaningfuly.

"Ohhhh." I say groaning.

Liz laughs and I shoot her a dirty look.

yup, this is what its all about. Just me and my friends laughing. Nothing unnormal going on here.

Unless you count the aliens in the booth next door but hey, what can you do?

there all fixed. tell me how you liked it

OOC.. Sorry Chris!!! Btw.. will Tess be good or evil in this???


Tess turns to Max. He sees following Liz with his eyes. He can't keep staring at her.

"Max, why don't you just talk to her. I am tired of you pining over her. I can't believe I am saying this.. But if you love her than go fight for her. Because if don't you will be thinking about how your life could have been had you fought to be with her.

Tess checks her watch but is really looking at Kyle with regret. "Call me later or something." She walks out without looking back but wondering what life has in store for her now?



OOC: How was that, Chris?


posted on 19-Jan-2003 10:40:38 PM by Chrisken
Okay... now, just so I'm clear... where the heck is Liz? Is she still in front of kyle and alex's table?

And... for the record, just what is the standard rule about using other people's characters in your post here at fanatics? I'm trying very hard not to be an RPG nazi of any sort... but surely there has to be some kind of guideline about that sort of thing. baby_bre and qt have both introduced dialog for other characters in their posts... not to pick on them, just commenting. What's the limit on what kind of dialog you can introduce for other people's charcters and do they get a veto on it??

your somewhat confused threadmaster. :D
posted on 19-Jan-2003 10:53:16 PM by qt4167013
I am sorry was I not supposed to do that? I didn't mean to, I can always delete my part if you want me to, and btw most of my dialogue was with alex who is also my character so it shouldn't have mattered.

posted on 19-Jan-2003 10:59:55 PM by qt4167013
I don't think it matters. I have been in a lot of RPG's and everyone basically says what they want. If you don't like it, you tell them and they go back and edit. Ok? Happy?
posted on 20-Jan-2003 12:49:24 PM by Liz_Parker
Hey, there's not really a limit on using other ppl's characters, you can kinds just pull them along *happy*
posted on 20-Jan-2003 4:52:39 PM by Lizzie_Parker17
Actually there IS a limit on how much you use other peoples characters! I know because I was one of the two that made the rules.
You can borrow other peoples characters as long as they do not mind, but you cannot do anything completely out of character, or move them to someplace they didn't want to be. if someone does that either ask them to edit it, or you can ask myself or one of the other forum mods.

I will use an example in this post of something that would be acceptable if Chris approves it.

Liz

Liz was trying her hardest not to turn around.

She could feel his eyes on her. Burning into her at every moment

When the door jingled she forced herself to turn around and see who was coming in.
No one eas coming in but Tess was leaving. Her eyes drifted back to the booth where she had been sitting.

Max was stilll there.

And their eyes made contact and held.

It actually hurt to look into his beautiful eyes and know that it wasn't her right to. Max belonged with Tess.
His queen.

It looked as though he were considering something. Almost as if his booth was on fire and if he didn't move soon he would be burnt.

She tore herself from his gaze and turned back around to kyle and Alex. She forced a smile on her face. She was amused by their antics but today...

She was about to tell Kyle it was good to have him back when she felt one strong arm encircle her waist. She knew it was Max and she couldn't help the sigh that escaped her lips.

She turned around fast
"Max"

I am sorry, but in my post, most of the dialogue was between Kyle and Alex...both are MY characters. I only borrowed Liz and Maria to tell Kyle it was glad to have him back. If you wan't I can go back and edit it out, but all I did was have them run over. If you don't LIKE that than I can ALWAYS go back and fix it
posted on 20-Jan-2003 5:11:40 PM by Lizzie_Parker17
I am not trying to be rude at all!
I was just giving an example to help out because everyone seems to be confused about it.
Like I said. Chris is the thread master. The final decision is really up to him, but it isn't cool if say I wanted Liz to go to the Crashdown to settle something with max and someone moves her to marias place. it would be ok If I was ok with Liz being moved, and most of the time people are. Like I said as long as its in character does not get out of the plot line, and if the person who plays that character and the starter of the thread are ok with it.
I think your post is fine. But that isn't my decision to make

If you have any more questions please ask me or another mod or check out the rules and regulations. Its the magnet of this forum.

Hmmm....for now I guess I'll just post another Serena part for now.
******************************************

~*Serena*~


This bus is so uncomfortable. Right now I hate my parents. I'd much rather be curled up in my bed writing.


Why don't they trust me? It's not like I have a boyfriend....all the guys think I'm weird....or diseased or something.


I sigh and look at the sign as we pass it. "Welcome to Roswell"


Welcome to Roswell it says....but to me, it says "Welcome to your new life".


I just hope these so called relatives can handle me.....

Thanks for the clarification Britt. *happy* QT, bre, don't worry, I'm not upset, I was just jumping on an opportunity to clarify this whole situation.

Max

When Liz came out to say hello to Kyle, their eyes locked for a second, and it was like a ray-beam searing into his soul. She broke away, and Max couldn't help but hurry over to her. He didn't even think about what he was doing when his hand reached around her slender, graceful body in a move that could be considered a friendly half-hug... or so much more. Liz sighed deeply, but when she turned to face him her expression was unreadable. "Max."

"I, uh..." He wondered if he should take his arm away, but he couldn't bear to without some much stronger sign than that. On the other hand, he really didn't want to come on too strong and scare her away again. "I... I'd like to talk to you. Somewhere less crowded."

The way things between them were going, even getting Liz to talk to him in public would be an improvement.

(TAG!!) *bounce*


Asher

Asher spit past the side of the road as his trusty Yamaha carried him towards Roswiel, or whatever the heck this little human town was called. The skin he had talked to back in Houston seemed certain that at least one of the Royal Four would be here, possibly all of them. *But all the skins are too chicken to come here and see for themselves.* Well, if there was one thing Asher would never be, that was chicken. *I wonder how much Kivar would pay for the supposed King of the old dynasty, dead or alive?*

As he approached the town, he let his natural senses extend, waiting for the trifling distortion in the ether that could only mean that the hybrids were using their Antarian powers.

I am sorry for jumping on you!

Alex-

I watch with a frown as Max and Liz go off and talk.

Kyle turns to me with an equally pissed off look.

"I can't believe it." He says, amazed.

"What?"

He sighs.

"Ok, he dumps her for the ugly blonde gerbil and than when he comes crawling back to her she jumps at the chance to be with him." He says disprovingly.

I narrow my eyes.

"She loves him Kyle." I say, looking at Isabel, who looks away.

"Well, anyway I have to split man." I say, putting my guitar away.

"Already?" Kyle asks, jokingly.

"Yup. My cousin, Serena is coming to town and I promised to pick her up."

"Is she hot?" He asks.

I roll my eyes.

"I wouldn't know, I haven't seen her in awhile. Well, adios Kyle." I say and shlep myself out of the Crashdown and into my car.

Time to meet this cousin.

~*Serena*~



Oh thank God I can finally get off this bus! There's so many people in here and I am not a people person.


After I get away from the crowd of people I go over and grab my bags then look around for any sign of my relatives.


Uh....what was my cousins name that was picking me up again? Allen....Eric....Alec? Oh...Alex! Yeah....that's it.

I look over and spot him and walk over. "Hi", is all I can say and look down.

"Hi", he says and walks towards his car and I have no choice but to follow him.

My parents told me that I met him and his parents when I was 7. But the farthest I can remember back is when I was like 8, walking around in some weird place. Still can't figure that one out.

I sigh and get in the back seat, not really wanting to be close to this so called cousin.


Maybe I can have my own room and can lock myself in there. It's not that I'm scared of a new place.....but,I'm just used to my own little world. Like I said before,I am NOT a people person.....what's the point in starting over in Roswell?

Alex-

I help her with her bags and she thanks me greatfully.

I help her in the car and take that moment to check her out.

She is pretty, I am probably going to have to fend Kyle off.

It's her eyes though. She has very emotional eyes. Even more so than Liz. She does have a wall around her. Any idiot can see that.

"Take a picture. It will last longer." She says bitingly.

Now, being best friends with girls has taught me many things, and one of them being to shut your mouth.

I ignore her an the ride home is silent. Well, partially silent. She is snapping her gum really loudly and it's annoying me.

"You play?" She asks, looking at my guitar.

"Yup!" I say proudly. "I am in a band."

She clicks her gum in response.

"keyboard." She says quietly.

"what?" I ask her, leaning closer.

"I play keyboard." She says louder.

End of conversation. This was going to be a long day.

~*Serena*~



Maybe Alex isn't so bad after all. We both play an instrument......but the weird thing is he keeps taking glances at me which isn't very comfortable.


I see his wallet on the ground so I pick it up. He doesn't seem to notice so I flip through it and smile at the various friends....friends....things I don't have.


I sigh as we get to some restaurant. "Uh....where are we?", I ask


"Crashdown", is all he says and we walk inside and I see 3 people who just stare at me. "Take a picture why don't you?", I say rolling my eyes and sit behind them.


They all huff and I swear it feels like someone's eyes are burning the back of my neck. I sigh and look over to see Alex talking with the 2 of the waitresses.

Great....he gets to have the time of his life while I sit here and be bored.....some cousin he is!

Kyle-

I see Alex pull up and I run to the window.

"Hey Liz, Maria, come here and check out the new meat!" I say jokingly and stare out the window.

"Holy crap! Thats Alex's cousin?!" I say loudly.

Alex turns to me with a frown.

"Dude, lay off shes my cousin." He says firmly.

"Hey, I think I am going to introduce myself." I say suavely.

I walk up the car and make sure my letterman jacket shows.

"Hey girlfriend, you must be tired."

She looks at me.

"Why might that be...." She looks at my letterman jacket.

"Kyle." She snaps her gum loudly.

"You must be tired because you have been running through my mind alll day." I say leaning against the car.

"Oh good boy, did you think of that one all by yourself?" SHe asks sarcastically.

I frown.

"I am Kyle Valenti. and your Serena."

She ignored me and pulled out headphones.

"What are you listening to?" I ask leaning over.

She turns up the volume and I faintly hear Eminem coming from the speakers.

I'm here to save you girl
come be in Shady's world,
I want to grow together
lets let our love unfurl
you know you want me baby, you know I want you too
They call me superman,
I'm here to rescue you.


I smile.

She'll come around, they always do.

Note the song used was Eminem's "superman" off the album THE EMINEM SHOW.

I was just minding my own business when Kyle tells us to come look at Alex’s cousin I think her name was Serena. I walk over towards the booths when they walk in she’s pretty.

Alex’s telling me about how she plays an instrument too.

I walk over trying to be polite and say “Hey I’m Maria.”

“I’m Serena.” She says.

“Ok.” I say feeling awkward something about this girl makes me feel uncomfortable. I turn to walk back towards Liz.

“So what’s the deal with his cousin?” I ask.
~*~*~*~

Sorry for using Serena just thought I should introduce them. You said she didn’t really like people so I figured she wouldn’t really want to say so much to Maria. I can edit if you’d like.

It's fine *happy*

******************************************

~*Serena*~


Hmm....everyone seems to think I'm some kinda exhibit, first that Kyle guy comes over and starts flirting up a storm....and I'm honestly not trying to be rude....everything just seems to come out wrong.


Maria comes over and we have a very,very short coversation. Pretty much the intro's and she was off. Oh well, maybe Roswell won't be much diffrent from my home town after all.


"Hey....uh Alex, I'm....gonna.....take a walk,ok?", I say with a small smile hoping he won't mind....I'm 16, and I'm not asking for permission from him, I'm still gonna go.


He raises an eyebrow. "Your new here....you'll get lost", he says with his arms crossed.


"No I won't.....I can take care of myself!".

He looks over at the table with those 3 that were staring at me. "Hmm......fine, but don't go far,ok? I don't wanna be in trouble for letting you sight see".

I just roll my eyes and walk out. Thank God I get away from those people. I've barely been here and it's like all eyes on Serena day or something.


I go over to an alley near by and sit down.....this is gonna be a long day.....I can tell you that much for sure.
******************************************

P.S- Sorry for using Alex *happy*

The only person that seems to care about using other people's characters is Chris. I really DON"T CARE if you use either Alex or Kyle. You don't have to ask permission! Just thought I would let you know. Also, I am not going to ask permission before "borrowing" your characters. I don't mean to be rude but if you don't like what I put...just tell me and I will GLADLY change it. *happy*

Ok here is Alex:

I don't like this. I don't want Serena off all alone.

"Maria..." I say sweetly.

She narrows her eyes at me.

"What Alex?"

"Could you follow Serena?" I ask pleadingly.

She rolls her eyes.

"Alex, I have work."

"I'll cover for you. Just make sure she doesn't get hurt." I give Maria the puppy dog eyes and she throws up her hands in a surrender gesture.

"Alright." She says.

"THANK YOU!" I hug her and she pulls me off of her, laughing.

"I'll go, but the Crashdown better not be burned down when I get back!" She says warningly.

"Yes 'mam!" I say and give her a salute.

I watch her leave and sigh.

Hopefully Maria will be able to talk some sense into my cousin.
-----------------
ok, this is how it will work for ME from now on. If, lets say whoever plays Liz does NOT like my idea for Liz to follow Serena than she will tell me and I will fix it. Sorry to sound rude which I hope I am not....But it gets frusturating apologizing for everytime I make someone else's character say 'hi' sorry

Actually, I was just coming to post that that hadn't come out right, LOL.

Britt, at such time as she chooses to grace us with her presence, can do anything she likes with Liz. (Quite likely involving responding to both your posts and mine.)

If she goes off to follow Serena instead of having a talk with her *soulmate* though, she's going to leave behind one thoroughly disappointed Max Evans. :-(

Okay, a few quick questions:

-Is Kyle doing to be with Tess or Serena? In the Tess post, she was looking at him with regret, but he seems to be all over Serena.
-Who is Asten(sp??) Is he going to end up being good?
-Is Tess evil....not evil?

Asher is a made-up character I just introduced... alien bounty hunter. Don't anticipate him ending up being good. :-D

The consensus appears to be that Tess is not evil in this rpg.

When Alex asks me to go follow Serena my instant reaction is NO I mean I had to work and I didn’t really want to go following someone who obviously didn’t want to be followed. But then again who could resist Alex Whitman’s puppy dog look? Not me that’s for sure. So of course I agree.

“Hey Serena wait up.” I call after her. I see her turning to walk down the street I don’t see her turn around but she stays. I take this as a sign to catch up with her.

“Well it’s my break so I was wondering if you’d want to walk with me and I’ll give you a small tour of the town around here?” I asked pleading I hope she doesn’t say no because I can’t go back inside and disappoint Alex but I’m not very good at being a spy.
~*~*~*~

So how'd I do?

Liz followed max slowly into the back room.
When they arrived there she sat down on the couch with a sigh

"What is it Max?" She asked.
She didn't want it to sound rude but she needed him to understand where she was.

Nothing had changed

"Fine.....but I'm sure there's not much to see", I tell her and we walk around some.


"Well.....Roswell has that whole stupid alien thing going on....", she tells me, I somewhat tune out until she turns me around.


"What?....Sheesh", I ask.

"Listen....I'm supposed to talk sense into you.....so, that's exactly what I'm gonna do", she tells me.


I cross my arms over my chest. "And just how, may I ask, are you gonna do that?"

~*~*~Maria~*~*~*~

I don’t want to make her think I’m mean but this girl’s attitude has got to go because I for one am not going to put up with it!

“First of all your little fits need to go I am not going to put up with your attitude.” I said calmly taking deep breaths I wish I had brought my purse I had my Cyprus oil in it.

“Excuse me?” Serena said looking at me like I was nuts.

“I think you heard me. I’m not trying to jump down your throat I am just saying that I am not going to put up with little miss attitude so I think you should change how your acting.” I am really trying not to loose my cool but she just keeps giving me these ‘vibes’.

“You don’t know anything about me.” Serena says.

“I know I don’t but I never will if you don’t loosen up and stop acting like I’m hurting you just by existing.” I said I was really trying to get her to open up I mean after all she was Alex’s cousin she couldn’t be that bad. I mean I should sympathies with her I mean she did have to leave everything she knew behind to come live here where everything is new.

“I’m not trying to make you feel like that.” I hear her whisper. ‘Maybe Maria’s not so bad maybe she could be a real friend to me?’

“I’m sorry for getting all worked up its not your fault I should have understood that this is a new town and you don’t even know anyone and if it happened to me chica you’d better believe I’d be freaking out.” I said trying to lighten the mood she just looked at me. “So do you want to talk about it sometime?”

hope it was alright... *I got mandy's permission before using Serena*

MAX

Max took a deep breath. He had to figure out the right thing to say... the thing that would convince Liz to return to their relationship... or at least open her mind again. The problem was... he had no idea what that was.

"You're my destiny, Liz Parker," he finally blurted out. "You always have been, you always will be. Nothing changes that, and nothing ever will. Is there any way I can get you to see that??"

It's weird....this Maria girl has like some kinda control over me. Not good! I'm not supposed to have friends....it's like, in the book of my life.


But,I'll tell ya what, she'll make a good Mom someday. She can get the point across whether you wanna hear it or not.


She says I have an attitude problem, Ha! Look at her. She's an accident waiting to happen.


We walk back to Crashdown and I go back to my booth behind those 3 people.....but there's only 2 sitting there now.

Alex walks over and sits across from me. "Listen to me Serena....you see those people behind you? Don't go near them,ok?".


"Uh....1-why and 2- Since when are you in charge of me?", I ask and lean back on the seat.

Alex-

I sigh, frusturated.

"Listen, when I agreed to show you around, I was not singing on to be a baby sitter. You just have to trust me. I am your cousin and until you leave, I guess I am going to have to be your babysitter." I say bitingly.

What? She got on my nerves.

She narrowed her eyes and pulled out her disc man and turned up the volume.

I sat down next to her.

So when was she leaving?

I so can't wait to leave here. There's nothing here for me....so what if there's so called family here? As far as I'm concerned I don't know them.


I tune everything out but putting on my headsets and listening to my CD. The people here are so annoying....I might just go talk to those people....whatever their names are just to get him mad....after all, how could it hurt? It's not like I'm in anyway related to them or something.....Alex can't boss me around....we're just about the same age....so he can justget over himself.


I take off my headset's and walk over to the table with those other people. "Hi....I'm Serena"

After Serena basically ignores my question I stand in the alley way leaning my head against the wall with a sigh I push my hair behind my ears and stand up straight ready to get back to work.

I walk into the crash down not expecting to see them of all the people in Roswell why did they have to be here especially when I’m feeling like this. I really really need that Cyprus oil right about now why oh why did I forget my purse? I dont get how they could come in here like that acting like its nothing for me to see them together but then again they probably just dont care. I tell myself bitterly.

That's when I noticed Serena go over to them hmm wonder what got her in the mood to be friendly.

“What’s your cousin doing?” I ask moving over to the booth Alex's at but out the corner of my eyes I'm still staring at the booth their seated in.

Alex-

When Maria asks me what my cousin is doing, I slowly turn around, knowing that I won't like what I am about to see.

She is talking with Isabel and Michael. The two people I specifically told her not to look talk to.

Isabel is staring at her, eyes narrowed, while Michael looks uncomfortable and is scowling.

I march over to Serena and grab her arm.

"Serena! I told you not to talk to them." I say, my voice quiet.

She rolls her eyes.

"No one tells me what to do." She says roughly.

I breath out a sigh.

"Ok Serena, let me tell you a little story. See the blond haired girl? Well before the summer ended she broke my heart. And you know Michael, the guy? Well he stomped on Maria's heart as well. We really don't like them and it opens up new wounds. Please...just don't." I say willing her to listen.

For a moment I see a glimmer of sympathy in her eyes, but as quick as it was there, it is gone.

"Fine." She says.

I watch her walk away and wonder. Does she really mean it?
posted on 22-Jan-2003 11:44:45 PM by baby_bre
I see Alex turn around and look at his cousin he doesn’t look too happy when he goes over and grabs her arm.

She’s tough I gotta give her that but why can’t she just take our advice? I can’t believe Michael is acting like he didn’t do anything to me I try to make eye contact with him while Isabel is distracted with the Serena and Alex thing. He wont even look me in the eyes I wonder if he feels guilty yeah right you wish Maria he probably just doesn’t want anything to do with you so why look at you? I sigh great another boring day in the life of Maria Deluca.
~*~*~*~
Ok she sounds a bit bitter because she is! thought I'd give an insight to how Maria's feeling right at the moment.. how'd I do? *oh and sorry for using Michael and Isabel if u want me to edit just say so!*

I walk outside and sigh. So what if that Isabel girl and Michael broke their little hearts? It's not my problem.



A couple little girls walk by giggling. I wish my chilhood would of been like that. I never really got the whole experience of being a kid, ya know?


I sigh and walk some more until I find myself in a dark alley....oh well, this is where I'm better off.....in the dark....where no one can see me....I'm used to it.


My parents use to hate when I would hide in dark places when I was little. It was always "Serena Anne if you don't get out here right now we're seni\ding the cops out after you!".


I lean back and close my eyes. So far Roswell actually isn't so bad.....it's just that I gotta get used to them....and I bet even when I do get used to them....Roswell will NEVER be home.

School unfortunately comes first!
If you would like to replace me thats cool I really don't mind. I have lots of RPGs!
Well I am going to post my part for her for now. Just let me know whats going on.

Lizzie

"You're my destiny, Liz Parker."

Liz looked up at him at that.

His eyes softened even more and it seemed as though he were looking into her soul.

"You always have been, you always will be. Nothing changes that, and nothing ever will. Is there any way I can get you to see that??"

Liz bit her lip.
She missed him. It hadn't even been long but to her it felt like forever.

"Max I wish there was a way..." She trailed off

They all saw it in the pod chamber. Max wasn't hers. Max and Tess were married

MARRIED!

"Max. I love you. You know that, but its not meant to be. You heard what she said that day in the cave."

Liz paused to organize her thoughts.

"Do you remember when you said we wouldn't work out Max? That somewhere down the line we would get hurt?
Well I think you were right."

She felt tears sting her eyes but she blinked them back

"How can I be with you max...Even if I want to...when I know you belong to someone else?"

Liz walked towards him as she spoke

"Max I wish something could happen here I really do. I miss you"

"But it can't." She said placing her hand on his cheek.


Thats all for now.
Wanted to give you the opening to take this wherever you want Chris!

Whoohoo!

Britt - I don't remember you saying that, and I probably didn't realize how much it would bug me at the time. But I do want to keep you in here.

Maybe your 'understudy' Liz_Parker could just take over briefly when you're away too long to keep Liz in play? Just a thought.

Max

Well. This wasn't going as well as Max had hoped. But maybe he could still make some headway.

"I don't have any easy answers about Tess, I really don't," he admitted in a soft whisper. "And I'm not gonna give you some glib reply about 'until death do us part.'" Even though that was how he felt about it, that their marriage had been dissolved when they died.

"But if I really belonged with Tess, if she was really the love of my life - of *this* life... I don't understand how I could not feel it by now. Wouldn't I have caught a glimmer the first time I saw her? The first time I..." He could hardly bear to say it, but hopefully it would help make his point. "...she kissed me?"

Impulsively, Max leaned over and kissed Liz quickly on the lips, trying to put as much emotion into it as he could. "Did you feel that? I did... I've felt that we have a connection since that first day I saw you, all those years ago. For Tess... there's nothing, except a vague hope that somewhere along the line we'll figure out how to be friends. Maybe even family. I think she's starting to understand that too."

"There may have been some sort of connection between Tess and I back on our homeworld, but that was a lifetime ago, and I have to believe that a second chance means new choices. Because the alternative is to walk away from you, and my heart refuses to let me do that."

Max knew that he was getting into a cliche take-me-back monolog, but he couldn't help that. I just hope that it works. "You're right that once I said it couldn't work out between us. I was scared, and I didn't have enough faith. But you showed me the way back to this incredible connection that we share, and you were there waiting for me."

"Will you let me try to return the favor??"

Max had to stop himself from biting his lip in nervousness. What would Liz say?

"I don't have any easy answers about Tess, I really don't," he admitted in a soft whisper. "And I'm not gonna give you some glib reply about 'until death do us part.'"

Liz sighed here it comes.

"But if I really belonged with Tess, if she was really the love of my life - of *this* life... I don't understand how I could not feel it by now. Wouldn't I have caught a glimmer the first time I saw her? The first time I..." Max paused as though he were disgusted and Liz couldn't help her heart from starting to race a little bit
"...she kissed me?"

"Max what I'm afraid of is that we get back together. maybe have children, and get married. Then one day your feelings for her magically return, and you want to leave me.

Max swiftly moved in and kissed her. His lips tasted more sweet than anything she had ever tried

The kiss ended way too soon. He pulled back and Liz brought her hand to her lips

"Did you feel that? I did... I've felt that we have a connection since that first day I saw you, all those years ago. For Tess... there's nothing, except a vague hope that somewhere along the line we'll figure out how to be friends. Maybe even family. I think she's starting to understand that too."

She had felt it. She had seen the images. It had been like everykiss had been with Max Evans.
Perfect

"There may have been some sort of connection between Tess and I back on our homeworld, but that was a lifetime ago, and I have to believe that a second chance means new choices. Because the alternative is to walk away from you, and my heart refuses to let me do that."

Liz saw the love in his eyes. She knew he truly believed what he was saying. She could practically feel the love pouring from him into her.

"You're right that once I said it couldn't work out between us. I was scared, and I didn't have enough faith. But you showed me the way back to this incredible connection that we share, and you were there waiting for me."

"Will you let me try to return the favor??"

Liz looked up her hair falling in front of her eyes like a curtain. They were very close to each other. He reached over and tucked her hair behind her ears

She didn't know what to do. She wanted Max more than anything. They were meant to be. How could either of them be meant for anyone but each other? They fit. They were a match. Maybe their mother got it wrong. Maybe it was a lie meant to fool them.

She looked in to his amber eyes pleading with her to take a chance on them and her reslove crumbled.

He could tell too.

She didn't say a thing just closed the gap between them bringing their lips together and giving both of them the first taste of peace either of them have had since that day at the cave.

Max

(backpost)

"Max what I'm afraid of," Liz whispered tearfully, "is that we get back together. maybe have children, and get married. Then one day your feelings for her magically return, and you want to leave me." She was looking at him with so much sadness in her eyes.

"Even if they could return," he muttered, "there isn't enough magic in the world to counter the spell you've put over me. To make me want to leave you." And then he leaned in and kissed her.

(Skipping up to where I left off last time : ) *happy*

They stared into each other's eyes for a timeless moment after he finished his spiel, and then everything changed. Max could feel the weight he'd been struggling under, ever since that first evening he started having flashes of Tess, lift off of his shoulders as Liz smiled slightly and nodded.

And then they were kissing passionately, all of the pent-up emotion and longing that had been building up in each of them for too long expressing itself, and in expression building itself into something even stronger. Max's hands were rubbing up and down Liz's forearms when the sound of a clearing throat finally broke through his passion-haze and he stopped the kiss, startled.

"Max," Jeff Parker said, stepping down from the landing onto the floor of the back room. He was obviously trying very hard to keep a straight face, but whether the emotion behind that facade was more like anger or humor Max couldn't tell.

"Umm... Mister Parker?" Max said weakly.

(Okay, I'll break here. *happy* Hope nobody minds me bringing in Jeff, hee hee.)

ok bre, I'll write your part! LOL!

Alex-

I quickly brought over Maria and sighed.

"I don't know what it is Ria. I just can't get to her. She looks so lost but when I try to help, she pushes me away. I TOLD her the story about Izzy and Micheal and there she is. Talking with them. I don't know what to do." I whine.

Maria pats me on the back.

"Its ok Al. I have a plan..."

~*~*Maria~*~*~

“What’s your plan?” He asks me.

“Well I’m going to do a little something that guarantees that she’ll want to go home.” I said with a gleam in my eyes. I knew it was mean but we warned her so now it was time to take matters into my own hands.

“What do you mean?” He asks me I can tell he’s curious.

I hope Serena will forgive me for this I say as I walk behind the counter and fill up a big glass of cherry coke.

I start walking past where she’s sitting when I “accidentally” trip and spill the coke all over her.

“Oh my god I am so sorry.” I say grabbing some towels to dry her off.

“Just leave me alone.” She says in a cold voice.

“I hope she’s not gonna hate me.” I tell Alex when I walk back over to him.
~*~*~*~
ok I know that was mean but I couldn’t think of any other plan other then to make her want go home and change… if it’s too mean then I’m sorry and I’ll edit…

Serena goes up to leave and I angerly call after her.

"I told you Rena."

I turn around and glare at Alex and his friends. "I hate you....all of you....and I'm stuck here, do you think I LIKE being here?!", I yell and storm out.


They don't care. They don't care one little bit about how I feel, in their minds it's all them them them. If I could of stayed home then I would of.


I sigh and keep walking not caring where I wind up, the farther away from them the better.....
posted on 26-Jan-2003 3:29:48 PM by baby_bre
I can’t believe I did that! When I saw her freak out like that saying she hated us my heart went out to her.

I know how she feels like an outsider somewhere you don’t belong with people who don’t care about you.

but what can I do it’s the past I can’t change what I did but she has to know that I only spilled that soda on her to keep her away from them for her own good.

I mean all they’ve done to me so far is make me feel like I’m an outsider imposing on their world none of them have made any effort to be my friend even though I’m keeping their secret.

I mean Michael trampled on my heart but he’s the only one that even remotely let me in.

I sigh as I go up and ask Alex “shouldn’t you be like going after her?”

"she asked for it." I say stubbornly, but I know I will end up going after her.

I run out the door.

"Rena." I say. I find her next to a tree crying.

"Go away Alex you did this!" she says angerly.

I frown. I don't want to but I know I have to help her.

"aww rena, come here."

I wipe my eyes. "Get away from me Alex", I tell him and scoot farther away.


Some cousin he is. Cousin's are supposed to be helpful, not just stand there and let their best friends be mean to their cousins.


He scoots closer to me and I stand up. "I said leave me alone!", I yell at him and start running off, not really sure of where I'm going.

I run after her. What? I am persistant. and before you all go telling me what a bad cousin I am, let me remind you that it wasn't MY plan that was used.

I am out of breath after the first two blocks, but keep running.

Serena finally stops at the duck pond in the park.

I stop next to her and just stand there silently.

We stand there for a good ten minutes without saying a word.

She turns to me after a second.

"Why?" She croaks out.

I shrug.

"We don't like change."

She snorts and we continue watching the ducks.

I roll my eyes. "Oh please.....how can you not ike change when change happens everyday?! You people are so stupid!! You can't just go around acting like a demented 5 year old just because something small happens,ok?!", I glare and turn the other way.


I hear him groan softly and he walks in front of me. "Listen......we just gotta get used to ya,ok?", he askes with one of those little kid looks.


"No, not ok....I'm sick of this place already. I know you want me gone, so do I but so far it doesn't seem like that's gonna happen, now does it?! God Alex....change happens all the time! Are your little friends gonna have a spaz attack when they get a pimple or something? Look, I know you hate me....but at least deal with it,alright?", I tell him and walk over behind the tree......I wish I could be at home right now.

Yes!
I can get on today! Man it was not being nice last night at all! EW! Oh well here I am.

Liz

Liz pulled away from Max abruptly.

Of all the times for her dad to walk in. This was just the best.

"Hi daddy" She said with a shy smile
"We're just going to go back out with our friends" She finished trying her best to get them both out of an aukward situation

She grabbed max's hand and started pulling him out to the restaurant when she heard her dad

"Bye Lizzie, Max"

She felt Max's hold on her hand tighten when he heard his name spoken.

Liz couldn't help but smile. Here he was some King from another planet and hes afraid of her father

She shot him a reassuring smile and they stepped out into the restaurant hand in hand. Just like it should be.

Just how it was meant to be.

I am just standing around waiting for a new customer to come in. I still can’t believe what I did to Serena but it had to be done it was for the best… or so I keep telling myself that.

I’m trying not to watch them through the corner of my eye but I can’t help it. it makes me sick to see her laugh when he jokes.

I hope Alex gets back soon I’m going crazy just standing here but I doubt he will be and if he is what if he’s mad at me? Don’t ask my why he’d be mad I just think he might be.

So I’m standing here about ready to go get something to drink when guess who I see emerge from the back room hand in hand? None other then Max and Liz and to me they both look happy.

Now that’s a sight I thought I’d never see again.

Alex-

I understand why she hates us. Hell, if I were new I would hate us. Were not exactly a welcome wagon.

I resist the urge to put my arm on her shoulder and settle for moving closer to her.

"Listen. Uh..I am really sorry." I say honestly. Ok so it wasn't honestly it was sincere? no thats not it.

"Yeah? Well sorry doesn't cut it." She says angerly.

I blow out a angry breath of air.

"Listen. You may not like it here but tough. Your stuck." I say dramatically.

She turns and looks at me. I mean really looks at me. I see past her stonewall, and see the insecure girl she really is. It is gone in a flash and I am once again staring at vacant pools.

"I know." She says softly.

This time I don't hold the urge, I put my arm around her and she leans her head on my shoulder and crys.

God, why am I crying? I'm not supposed to cry, I'm not supposed to let down my wall.


But for some reason it's comforting to be in someone's arms. I have no one else. I ahve a family,sure, but they don't seem to care. I come around and they turn away. I swear it's like I'm a disease or something.


With Alex it seems it's diffrent. I can just be me and not worry about him making fun of me or starting rumors or something. I mean, I barely know the guy, but I'm comfortable for once....and that's a start.

I felt like I was on cloud nine as Liz hurried us out of the back room and away from her dad. Nothing could ruin my good mood today.

"Hey, Maria, what's the what?" I called out as she noticed us emerge.

I walk out of that back room feeling more alive than I had felt in a while. If only my father hadn't come back and ruined it.

I see Alex sitting at a booth and I head over to say hello

"Hi Alex. Whos that?" I say asking about the new girl I see

Ok so Max doesn’t spill but why should I have expected him to? It’s not like I’m really his friend or anything. But whatever.

I hear his say maybe there’s hope for Michael and me. I give him a look that says ‘what have you been smoking’ then I say sarcastically “Yeah and there’s also a chance that I’m going to marry Vin Diesel(dunno how to spell). Please.

“Oh that’s Alex’s cousin Serena.” I say waiting for a reply from him.

I could tell that Maria's feelings were hurt - she thought I was blowing her off. Which I didn't mean to, but... I just couldn't *dish* about this right here in the crashdown. "We'll talk later," I whispered, squeezing Maria's shoulder quickly. She's been so supportive through all this, she deserves to know how it happened. Though I'm not sure even *I* know how I got back together with Liz.

"So... a cousin, huh??" I've never really gotten to know Alex very well, but still that came as a surprise.

OOC: If Maria was thinking about marrying vin diesel in 2000, she had to have been a HUGE saving private ryan fan LOL.

I was happy when Max told me we’d talk later that meant he wasn’t just pushing me to the side now that he got together with Liz again.

“k.” I said happily I am so glad for them. But I doubt space boy and me will get back together Max is Max and Michael is Michael. Their way different so just because Max stepped off his high horse doesn’t mean Michael will.

“Yup that’s his cousin. And she hates my guts as well.” I said ashamed.

"Thats Serena. My cousin!" I say.

I laugh.

"You have to stop hanging around Maria!"

"Can I meet her?"

I look at Liz like I am appraising her. Liz is the glue that holds US together and with her incredibly nice and sweet personality she actually might be able to click with my incredibly anti social cousin.

"Sure." I say, leading her toward her.

"Ummm..." what do you say to a friend after she's complaining that someone *else* hates her guts? "Tough on her. Umm... You wanna get out of here? Go do something fun?" I wait for Maria's response, wondering if I can invite Liz along too without making her feel like a third wheel. Heck, Liz has been Maria's best friend for longer than I've really known either of them.

Max asks me if I want to get out of there to do something fun. I consider it maybe I shouldn’t go because I don’t want to be a third wheel since I know he’s going to invite Liz well that and I’m sure they’ll want some alone time. But he did invite me and I have nothing to do.

“Sure.” I say I can always if they need sometime to be left alone. “Where we gonna go?”

I had known Alex all his life and never knew he had a cousin.

I watch as she shrugged when he introduced us and sat back in her seat

"I'm Liz Parker. My parents own this place" I said to her gesturing to the Crashdown around us.

"We just lost a waitress. If your intrested the job is yours"

"Uh....nice fo you to ask and all....but I'm not the waitressing type", I sigh and lean back.


They start talking again and I hear Liz sigh. Once again I'm invisable.

It's times like these I wish I had an older brother or sister...or both. Someone you can call and talk to when your totally bored out of your mind.


Well, since I'm invisable,I guess I can leave. I get up and squeeze past all of them and walk outside. Can this day get any worse?

~Michael~

Life sucks. Right now, I'm sitting in a booth in the Crashdown, across from Isabel. She somehow convinced me to leave my apartment, much to everyone's shock. I'm not in a people mood. I killed a man. How can anyone even look me in the eye?

"Michael, will you cut it out? Just get up and talk to her!" Isabel grumbled, her tone harsh.

"And what? Put her in danger of being killed? I love her too much. Let her have her normal life. She can hang out with Liz, Alex, Kyle, and that Serena girl. She doesn't need me to put her in danger."

Isabel shakes her head. "Has is ever occured to you that Maria might actually want you to be in her life? God knows why, but the girl cares about you."

I look at her, and lower my eyes to the tabletop. She sure as hell hasn't killed anyone. She doesn't know how it feels to take a life. She just doesn't get it.

Max asks me where I want to know then he asks if it’d be alright if he brought Liz.

“Well here why don’t I just leave my shifts over so you can go hang out with her?” I’m not jealous I don’t like Max like that or anything I just thought we were becoming friends and I don’t mind really.

I mean they deserve to have some time alone without having me there cause they think I can’t find anything else to do.

I walk into the back room to change.

I change and I walk out I think it looks like Max might say something to me but he doesn’t oh well I got other things to do. Or I wish I did. Another sleepless night thinking of Michael.
~*~*~*~

I’ll change it if you think she’s acting jealous because that’s not what I’m trying to have her do I’m trying to make it show that she’s sad because she’s not with Michael but happy for them so she doesn’t want to get in the way of their spending time together.
