    Hi, guys.

    I want some Tipex before I continue plotting Underdogs, so for now I'm going to work on my Beauty and the Beast retelling, which I thought of a possible title for the other night: "Discoloured Rainbows". What do you guys think?

    Wish they'd cancel class here. That'd be fantastic.

    The blurb for "Discoloured Rainbows"

    Chris has been bullied by Nate ever since they started school together in Year Seven. Now in Year Eleven, it's got worse. Nate has been getting other boys in their form class to join in with the bullying. At the annual Christmas Ball, Chris confronts Nate after he teases him about not having a date because all of the guys aren't gay, and Nate kisses him. Shocked, Chris tries to avoid him as much as possible while Nate tries to come to terms with the feelings taking over him. But nothing is as easy as it seems.

    I'm inclined to agree with Zoe.

    That awkward moment when the time on the computer is earlier than the time on AW...

    ETA: Tay, it may be because I know that it's inspired by HP, but now everything you post about your book makes me immediately think "okay, compare to HP, is it too similar?"

    So both the MC dying and the MCs running around trying to prevent the bad guy's immortality is very HP-like to me. The problem I've been seeing, honestly, is that it keeps feeling like you're taking something from Harry Potter and saying "okay, how can I change this so it goes in my story", rather than coming up with ideas on your own (which I know you're really good at =) )

    I may be wrong, but I'm the kind of person who sees all similarities between books and has issues with them XD Hence why I did not like TMI until Sebastian showed up.

    Lisa, here is what you need to read: http://hollylisle.com/how-to-legally...y-steal-ideas/ It basically addresses that issue perfectly.

    I wasn't intending to steal ideas... I did steal a name.
