Review:Thalia Gray says:
I just wanted to thank you for this story. I've been bullied almost my whole life. I've never been able to stand up for myself until this year. My teacher signed me up for a writing contest with the theme of bullying and this story has made me realize that there is a lot worse. And I was hoping that maybe I could use the bathroom scene in my story. Please write me back to let me know.

Love Thalia (yes it is my real name)

Author's Response: Hello! I'm flattered that you related to my story so well! So many people are bullied nowadays and it's so important that people know that it actually happens and it isn't a joke, it's extremely serious!

It's also so great that you stuck up for yourself! It's actually one of the best feelings in the world!

This review gave me a little reminder to why I loved writing this story so much! The best thing about writing is when readers relate really well to it. It's a wonderful feeling.

About the scene, I'm so flattered that you liked it so much but I'm not very comfortable with you using the exact scene. Especially because you are writing for a contest, I think that it's really important that it is your own work. You can always get inspiration from this fic and hopefully it gets your muse going but I'm going to have to ask you not to use the scene, as it would be cheating for your contest.

I'd be honoured to see you use it as an inspiration and would love to see how you adapted it. There are countless amounts of ways that an idea can be altered and made completely original and yours.

I'm on the forums and you can reach me by clicking on my 'Meet The Author' link and you can always send me a message for some ideas! You can always ask for some ideas, I don't mind helping you at all!

Thank you so much for this amazing review and thank you for asking me about the bathroom scene, I'm really grateful that you asked instead of just taking it. It really means a lot to me.

Best of luck with your contest! :)
