I know what you are all wondering. Where have you been? Are you dead? When are you updating? Are you continuing with this story?
Believe me, i read it all, either in PMs or reviews. I don't mind the questions. It's okay to ask. It's just hard to answer, but i'll try.
Am I dead.... Hmm... Let me get back to you on that one. Where have i been? My comp is really stuffing up. Might get a new one, before it crashs and i lose all my stuff. Are you continuing with the story? YES! These two crazy kids have to get together or i won't be able to live in peace. When am i updating?... Seriously? I don't know. Sorry.
See, i've structured it. I just have to fill in the blanks. By that i mean, i written the dialogue, i just have to write the boring stuff like, 'he said' 'she gasped as i blah blah blah'. You get it, right? Oh and i have to do some of the deep thoughts Bella is having. I mean, there is a lot going on. So much drama between each character.
Charlie and Bella. Bella and James. James and Edward. Charlie and Sue. Leah and Bella. Bella and Edward. See! Lots of relationships to deal with. It's such an emotional chapter, i feel like having a break and writing for chapter 39, which i have written a little.
Is it finish? Not even close. Just written scenes and structured it. While 38 is mostly drama and stress, this chapter is light and fluffy... will not the beginning anyway. And they you have chapter 40, which i haven't even started.
I know what you are thinking, Chapter 40? When is this story going to finish? When are they going to get together? Sad thing is, i just realised, this story is nearly finished. It is in chapter 40/41, that one of them realises that they are in love with the other. We are so close to the end.
So much is happening and then i have real life to deal with as well. Anyway, what has been answered... i will continue with the story. What hasn't been answered. If i'm alive. i have to get back to you on that one. Oh and when i will be updating... don't know.
If you can't wait and needs some answers, just send me an email/pm answering some of my questions (hey, if i have to answer yours, you have to answer mine) and i send you some spoilers (not sneak peeks, just a little what's happening in chaps and how many chaps in total until the end) and a mention in chapter 38 AN.
Why do you love IWYTWM?
Who is your fav IWYTWM character?
What is your fav quote in IWYTWM?
Fav moment between the characters (non Bella and Edward moments)?
What are you most looking forward to in future chaps/what you want to see?
How do you think the characters should confess their feelings (if your answer matches mine in this question, i dish out on everything you want to know).
Anyway, nice to talk to you, hopefully an update will be the next time you read from me.

Welcome to the home page of I Want You To Want Me or 'IWYTWM'! This is the place where you we can share your love (or hate) for my little story. This site is a way for me to communicate to you guys about the lastest news on the story and updates.
What's going on with new chapters? How long with it take for new update? Your answers will be answer in this little section.
All Author Notes are HERE!!!
I'm not dead. However, my laptop had a virus and because of that I couldn't update. However... I'm back :)
I have written quite alot of chap38, however I am not finish. I give it a week until i update, because i have to start uni soon. Please understand that i will complete this story, even though it might take some time. It will be finished.
Another reason why I am taking so long. James's character is soooo hard to right. What he did was wrong, however, he is a good guy and to establish that without the fans going all mad at me for petting James is quite hard. When i updates the last chap, i got a lot of reviews horrifiied that Charlie did what he did and that it was unexceptable for Bella to forgive James. I have now got the duty to make this understandable. Why did Charlie do what he did and how can Bella forgive James? This is hard to write. And the worse thing. I did write it and then my laptop crashed and i lost it all. I have to start all again, but i only ask for a week... can you pls give me a week. Thank you.

Due to the events of my personal life, I have come to not have the same passion or drive for fanfiction. I have already deleted all my story alerts and have gotten a new email address, to avoid fanfiction alerts. What I'm trying to say is, yes I have decided to leave fanfiction. I have decided to redraw all my future story ideas and stop writing all together. Yes, that means no 'One thing', no 'I'll be your cryin shoulder' or anything else. However, I'm not one of those people who will start something without finishing. Therefore, I will finish I Want You To Want Me, however I will not get it beta'd and will not make a sequel to the story. So please do not comment on my lack of correct grammar or spelling. I don't know when I'll update, or even if I will. I don't want my writing to be an obligation, because it will show in my writing, becoming dry and hateful, therefore I might not update regularly. I do want to finish this story, because I want you guys to know what happens to these two. I also want them to come together at the end.
Yes, so im on a break... the story will be updated :) I just dont know when..
~ The Perisher
Sorry for not updating. I have actually completed the chapter. It just that I'm having trouble betaing chapter. But it should be up in no time so... YAY! :)
Writing and updating might be hard for me to do. Just had a surgery and still recovering. And final exams are coming up. However, after 19th of Nov.... HOLIDAYS. You know what that means... New chapters and quicker updates.
I have received a lot of review stating that due to my delay of updating, some people might have left the story. Please don't, I'm still writing and the story won't finish until you read The End. So just wait a little more and you'll receive an awesome chapter.
Holidays are 3 months of nothing to do but write. So please be patient.
~ The Perisher
I'm still alive, so don't go writing my eulogy yet.
Been some progress on next chapter, but because it's such a emotional chapter i have to be in the right mind set and all. Anyway, trying my best to fit it in with uni. Have so much to do. So i have to go back and do it. All in all. No, i'm not dead. Yes, i'm still writing this story.
~ The Perisher (still alive and writing)
Since I'm not going to update for a long time, I decided to put a little AN of what to expect in the future chaps. Spoilers Alert!!!
Just a little AN of upcoming chaps. 'Might contain spoilers'. It's just the same thing i do with the AN after my chapters.
The rest of chapters you will have to wait for. Hope you liked my sneak peeks/breifs of chapters.
Just a little AN to help you understand my version of the story. MIGHT CONTAIN SPOILERS!
Chapter 26 will focus on 'Never judge a book by it's cover'. As you all know, Bella had been called the freak and has been labelled by others. They all have judged her. But that isn't who she is. However, you have also forgotten that Bella has also judged others.
Edward - Mr. President, James - Jackass Bully, Alice - Clueless Cheerleader, Rosalie - Self absorbed Cheerleader, Tanya - Miss Perfect, Emmett - Dumb Jock, Jasper - Quite Loner. Etc.
See, Bella has also labelled all these characters. If you have read Labels (A James POV Story) then you know that James's title isn't the whole truth. My whole story will look at the idea that before you hate someone for judging you, you should not label them. "People with glass houses shouldn't throw stones," and "Look at you backyard before you look at someone elses."
So we had Edward come out of his label. We have seen that he wears a mask at school so people will accept him and he hides his true self (piano playing, reading, music, etc). The we have James who has a tough family life and love life. We also seen Leah's. The whole feminist tough chick is acutally a wall/guard to protect her. She had been abandon by both her father and first love. We kind of saw Paul's with the whole Joker costume. He puts on a smile on the outsider, but on the inside he's crying.
Next Chapter (26) it would be Emmett time to show us his true character. Remember this isn't just a Bella and Edward story. Well... it kind of is, but it's also about learning something from the people around you. I want my story to not only be about these two characters, but also about the other characters around them. I want some character development.
So, as i explained before this story focuses on 'labelling' but it also focuses on another thing, which all you are aware of. True Love.
Bella and Edward are both confused (but they don't think they are) about true and first love. They think because the first people they had feelings for are Tanya and Jake, it means they have to spend the rest of their lives together. This is not the case. That's why i have such a strong idea of my other characters. They will help (unknowingly) them understand what true love is.
Like what Paul did with Edward. And the little Alice and Leah bonding. About how a person's hate could be a bases of love. Alot of characters will help. Alice, Jasper, Leah, Charlie, Emmett, Rose and others. And it isn't only about the difference in first love and true love, no. Because that isn't the only problem between ExB. Some will tell them that sometimes your idea of who your supposed to be with isn't the person you're meant for and others will help them understand that you should be with someone that loves you for who you are, the good and the bad.
So thats the two things (main) that the story is focusing on. Labels and True Love. Because for Edward and Bella to fall in love they must remove the labels they have of each other (which is sort of done already, but they have to get to know each other more) and to realise that you can find love after heartbreak and that it might be the last place you would have looked. So that's what you will see in future chaps, and have seen (but might not have noticed) in previous chaps.

Hello my readers this is a 'I am Sorry' AN.
Here is why...
While reading my review for chapter 23 i came across this one review which said some harsh things about me and the chapter. It was about the part in which Bella is praying to God and then ends up being quite frustrated with God. Well i got this one review and other review made a slight mention about it so... I am sorry. It wasn't my intention to be offensive or disrespectful. It was a little insight of how we react when things don't go our way and how we think and say stupid things. And if that offended anyone i am sorry. That was not my intension.
I AM SORRY.
I'm now virus free. YAY! So I thought I'll post the AN I was going to before all this chaos.. but first talk about the brand new chap.
I guess you all read the new chap (Chap 20) and wonder when's the next update. Hmmm... April Fools day. Thought to make it special. Uni is gona be busy so i'm going to take my time with updates... hey at least it's better than 3 months. However, Twilihtfan PMed me asking for a quicker update (within 3days or a week to the max). I still haven't decided. I got uni so might take some time to get everything done. So yeah. That's about the update. Now to chapter 19's discussion which you missed last time.
What did you think of the new chap? Believe me there is going to be more Charlie and Edward moments. I wonder if Edward can handle that.
Now, let's talk about chapter 19. Alot of major things happened. First, hello! The kiss. Quite a breaking point for Bella. Then we had the van (Pictures in Gallery). Why did i put that scene in? I wanted a little time for the gang to show how they really. And you kind of get the whole conversation that happened before the story. What Seth told Bella about the whole Jake said this to the group. Alpha etc. But i thought I should show the gangs personality. Hope it came out. Quil with his quotes and Jared (J.T) with his, I'm so cool, but a nerd in the inside as he was the only one to get what Edward was saying. Then we have a little Paul and Leah moments. Embry being the coward one and saying Paul lives dangerously.
We got to see Leah and a Bella moment. Who thinks Leah is seeing what's going on, which Bella can't. I think Leah can see that the JB Project is getting out of hand and it's not about Jacob/Bitch anymore. Then we have alittle Jake. Jealous Jake. Jake is seeing that Bella is moving on with Edward and he doesn't like it. Huh? Pot calling Kettle Black, Jacob Black? LOL.
My fav. The car ride. The singing, the nicknames. So cute. Cutie Pie and Baby. Damn took me so long to come up with. I wanted Edward to have a sexy nickname, because it would show everyone that Bella calls Edward something sexy... shows Jake. And I wanted Bella to have a cute one so it shows everyone (Tanya) that Edward is caring and sweet for Bella. First ideas were like. Eddie and Bellie. But i thought Edward would hate that and Bellie... I didn't like it. Then it was Love or something. But thought it was too strong for them and i needed something light hearted and fun. I was also thinking 'kitten', as in the angry kitten, for Bella, but I didn't think it will work.
So Baby for Edward - because it's hot and sexy, while still being lovie (and he hates kids, but acts like one). And Cutie Pie for Bella - because it's sweet and makes her so angry when anyone calls her that. It's their little thing. Yes, these nicknames are going to be in the next chap (21). In action. Actually, there is going to be alot of action. Hmm... spoilers?
Baby and Cutie Pie put on a show for Lauren, so she can report back to Tanya. You are going to love it.
Until the next chapter.

Hello all, guess who's back home.... ME!
Lots of stuff happened over the holidays. Went to Paris and London. Got an new Ipod touch (old ipod nano went in the wash - hey, it wasn't my fault mum didn't check the pockets) which i'm obessed with. Love you older sis for buying such a great b'day gift. However, got sick both on my trip to Pairs and on my birthday in London. Boo. But i know no one cares about my pain. We all care about 'I want you to want me'. Well... still not ready. *Ducks under cover*
Hold up, hold up. Put the rotten tomatoes and eggs down. I haven't finish chapter 19... yet, but i have finish chapter 20 (which is awesome). So give me some time on chap 19. Promise it will be done in a week, because uni starts next week and yes that mean another break from the story.
Chill all, chill. With the long wait i'll give you awesome loooonnnnggg chapters that will help you survive this time. And trust me (if you like my type of stories) the next chapters are awesome. I personally have squealed and giggled millions of times, both from writting and reading them. I can't wait for you to read them.
- The Perisher.
Here is the much wanted sneak peek of Chapter 19. Think of it an early X'mas present.
Because I am using my sister’s laptop (sometimes my aunt’s) it’s quite hard to spend long hours writing.
I have gotten so many reviews and PMs begging and also demanding for the next chap. Well… that will not be possible, sorry. This is why i posted sneak peek.
Holidays are okay, apparently were staying here another week longer. I know. I told mum I wanted to go home early but she wants to spend my sisters birthday here with her. So yepp... going to be extra late :(
So from Feb to March. Yep. March.... Sorry.
But to help fill the long wait he is a small sneak peek. I BEG you to please leave a comment on my page or on the forum to tell me what you think of it so far. Remember this is only a draft.
~ The Perisher.
Last AN until... I don't know?
Yes I know I didn't put another chapter on. Truly, whatever I wrote for chap 19... sucked. So I'm waiting until I get back. Sorry.
Anyway off to London I go! Dammit, what a shame I'm not there when Robert Pattinson is. Oh well. So this AN is just to let you know that if i don't reply to reviews, comments, PM or emails, it's not because I'm a witch with a B, I'll be in London where i will not have my computer. However I am taking my USB which contains all of my IWYTWM chaps and other stories I've been working on. My sister does have a laptop (i think) but i think it's for work. But i know she totally goes on facebook. Anyway, back to the point, so i could use hers, but i'd have to lie about why i'm on it. Sooo not telling her about fanfiction. So i might be able to write AN's or blogs if i get my hands on her laptop.
Oh! I was thinking of having a little I Want You To Want Me interview with the characters. Ask/send (PM) your questions to either Bella, Edward, Jake, Tanya, James, Leah, Alice and anyone you can think of in the story. Again that isn't going to be publish/update until Feb.
Have to go now got a flight tomorrow.
- I'm The Perisher and you've just been perished. Bye for now, not forever!
EXAMS FINISHED! YAY!
Sorry, no. I was working on Chapter 19, but it still isn't publish worthy. Holidays start and I have to pack for my trip to England. My sister said we will also go to Paris... Woo. I'm totally going to the Notre Dame and have a totally Bella experience. LOL
Hang in there guys. I lot of you are upset about the whole... 'no updates till feb' and most of you are angry that there has been no BxE development, that I'm leaving you hanging. Well please don't worry, there are many up and downs to come. Come on! I still haven't even started the story yet. This is more like an intro. We have so much more to read.
So expect Feb to bring you all the answers to your question. I have just added Jame's POV on Fanfiction, so don't forget to review. I will still try to reply to reviews and comment. So if you have any questions ask them before the week is up. And I will try to update blogs and websites.
