"Fade Away"

Chapter Seven


Jen said...

It's great, but I can't exactly understand what's going on.

Did you get the part where the government moved him around from "I am the Cheese"?

Abby said...

wow. that was dark.

poor Voah. I'm concidering joining the I-Hate-Rebecca club, as she totally helped tried to kill him (even if they ended up killing her anyways). What a sell-out.

...Although, maybe whoever it was would have killed her if she hadn't. It may be a bit much to say shame on you for not dying for your ex-boyfriend. huh. I'll have to think on that one.

Ali said...

i was depressed when i read that.

it didnt help.

Jedi_Raptor07 said...

Oh man. This story gets more and more depressing. Sheesh. VOA's "life" really sucks.


Jedi_Raptor07 said...

One more thing...

Why the **** is his mother in jail? That's obviously self-defence (the psycho lady) and involuntary manslaughter (daddy dearist). Even with a weapons charge (illegal/unregistered handgun), and even if his mom took the fall (which wouldn't stick-watch CSI), she'd be out of jail in five years, tops. The kid would be in juvie until he was 21 and that'd be it. But 1st degree murder? What the... ?

teh michele said...

Dude, this keeps getting darker and darker. But yet, it still manages to rock my socks. I still firmly stand by my belief though, Voah needs a hug. NOW.

angie said...

too early to read. i'll read it later. ughhh. alarm got me up at three. i hate three. three sucks sooooo much.

Jeff said...

Repeats what Andrew said.

So, I was a bit confused by the truck sequence...can you reexplain that?

kelly h said...

wait. i'm confused. what happened to Rebecca. was she in the plan to kill VOAH or was she trying to help him. i'm so confused. and what was w/ the truck.

i thought we told you to write an up lifter.

Carissa said...

i agree with Jen...
pretty picture
did u write the song?
good story

Ali said...

um, what's there to be confused about?

He jumped.

Out of a moving van.

And started bleeding.

Picture contracts nicley with story, btw. Forgot to mention this due to extreme depression over voah's complete and total lack of luck.

All those who wish to join the Hug Voah club, say aye.


i'm on music patrol said...

the song is from garden state. what do you people listen to?

Jedi_Raptor07 said...

Bands other than Garden State.

Sam, how do you get the chapters in Anonymous to post sequentially in chronological order. I can't do that w/More Than a Job Any technical help you could provide would be invaluable!

Abby said...

I think she means the Garden State soundtrack, as in a movie, not a band.

Molly Wobbles said...

your the meanest of the mean

your too samish to understand suliminal messages

Ali said...


and no one has joined the "Give Voah a Hug" club.

if i hugged voah, he would shoot me. But that doesnt change the fact that i shall hug him anyways!

Jen said...

I'll join the "Hug VOAH club"

Carissa said...

is the poetry thing good or bad?

hong said...

that's a really nice cherry picture..that really doesn't match the story/ all, lol.

hong said...

AHAHAHA, i wrote CHERRY! AS IN THE FRUIT!!..yeah i meant cheery

Maeve said...

I love your picture. It makes me want to go outside and have a good stare up at the trees.

Carissa said...

i like how you can get 20 some comments by posting 2 words and a picture...
and i friended on xanga.

Carissa said...

and i meant that you and i did most of the work. ish. yea. well i meant that i did about as much as you and i was assistant so together we did most of the work but it counts more for me.
i'm done

angie said...

so- when are newsies audtitions???

Jon said...

I don't know, they should be soonish and by soonish I mean we have to atleast do our Shakespeare performances. Megan doesn't really know the date yet though, she is still figuring stuff out.

Ali said...

sam needs to post. and you know it's bad when I tell you that.

Anonymous said...



Mister Engima said...

Seeing as Voah is nowhere to be found, I'll let you know that Anonymous is Jeff.

Mister Engima said...

Jeff B/Spartan, that is.

guess that band said...

it's been one week...

Jon said...


"...since you looked at me
Threw your arms in the air and said youre crazy
Five days since you tackled me
Ive still got the rug burns on both my knees
Its been three days since the afternoon
You realized its not my fault not a moment too soon
Yesterday youd forgiven me
And now I sit back and wait till you say youre sorry

Chickity china the chinese chicken
You have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin
Watchin x-files with no lights on, were dans la maison
I hope the smoking mans in this one
Like harrison ford Im getting frantic
Like sting Im tantric
Like snickers, guaranteed to satisfy
Like kurasawa I make mad films
Okay I dont make films
But if I did theyd have a samurai
Gonna get a set of better clubs
Gonna find the kind with tiny nubs just so my
Irons arent always flying off the back-swing
Gotta get in tune with sailor moon
Cause that cartoon has got the boom anime babes
That make me think the wrong thing

How can I help it if I think youre funny when youre mad
Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad
Im the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral
Cant understand what I mean? you soon will
I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve
I have a history of losing my shirt

Its been one week since you looked at me
Dropped your arms to your sides and said Im sorry
Five days since I laughed at you
And said you just did just what I thought you were gonna do
Three days since the living room
We realized were both to blame, but what could we do?
Yesterday you just smiled at me
Cause itll still be two days till we say were sorry
Itll still be two days till we say were sorry
Itll still be two days till we say were sorry"
