The Pillow Fort

Oh hey everyone, sorry I haven’t written in a billion and one years. Life got super busy. But I do need to come back and write more things. Perhaps when my own Bob Bowman of the writing world (aka book23worm) is able to return to a more normal schedule, she’ll whip my butt into gear!

Anyways, hope you enjoy the story. Speaking of Stacey, it was inspired by something she reblogged earlier, so go to her site and find it and enjoy it and let your imaginations run wild!

K, enough of me talking!


Summary: Michael and Allison haven’t seen much of each other since entering the world of post swimming life. Michael makes a wish one morning that he could quit the adult life and become a teen again with Schmitty. Schmitty accepts the challenge.

The One Where Bob Doesn’t Say ‘I Told You So’

book23worm:

Darlings! Oh, you are all kinds of magnificent for the response to my latest offering. I can’t tell you how happy I am to find a tiny place in your lives once more. It’s tremendously humbling and I hope to remain worthy of your time and support. So if you have any requests or something you think would work well for this series, send it in. I love details so please make any requests as detailed as possible as I don’t have access to Twitter or YouTube.

Oddly, I love writing Coach Bob and Michael. They’re fabulous. So this little piece is inspired by a conversation I had with my dad. No, I DON’T IN ANY WAY equate myself and my dad with Coach Bob and Michael. It’s more to do with the idea that other people tend to know us a lot better than we give them credit for.

Synopsis: The one where Bob doesn’t say ‘I told you so’.

Finally had time to read it!

And you should to. Stacey has come back strong and amazing, but I mean, really, who is surprised??

Safe Bet (A Schmelps One-Shot)

book23worm:

Oh Michael… The feels you’ve given all of us swim fans in last few months eh? It wasn’t the same without you.

It’s the GOAT’s birthday so naturally such an occasion demanded Schmelps right? This isn’t part of The One Where… Series. Still it’s a bit of fun I hope. Not to mention that I owe my sister from another mother Lydia something small as a rather (very) belated birthday gift.  

Synopsis: Michael decides it’s time to tell his family that he’s returning to the pool.

The official Schmelps Monarch is back and her writing is flawless as ever! I am so humbled that she is dedicating this to me and my birthday! I have the best friend ever :)

So read it, guys. It’s witty, it’s funny. It even makes reference to Downton Abbey, which I mean, is just the cherry on top!

(and for the record, I am a-ok with Hughes and Carson just remaining friends ;))

actually, it’s been psychologically proven that bronze winners are happier than silver winners! silver winners see themselves as being “so close” to gold, while bronze winners are just happy they won a medal. so any silver medalist isn’t as happy as a bronze medalist!

Canada gets silver:image

ok but it’s canada

The One Where Allison Tries To Sound Like Idina Menzel…

book23worm:

Hello darlings! It’s been a long. A very long time. I have missed you all tremendously. Too much to say. But I’m glad to be with you all once more even though the swimming landscape I find myself in seems to have been significantly altered. Retirements, un-retirements, engagements, graduations, bromances, romances, fan girls taking it a knee too far…

Which brings me to my next point. Writing. I haven’t written a thing since I’ve been in China. But it doesn’t mean I haven’t missed it or thought about it. Truthfully, are there still readers out there? Something that’s also been bothering me is… well… erm… Can I still write? So to test my theory, I’ve begun working on a series called ‘The One Where…’ Basically it’s inspired by watching Friends re-runs (remember how Friends episodes are usually titled?) as well as the stories everyone has been sending me about our favourite swim babies/merpeople. The catch is that I limit each piece to a 1000 words. It’s sort of a way for me to get back into things writing-wise before I embark on anything else and see if my writing is still something that people want to read. If it’s rubbish then I stop. If it’s not too bad… Well I do know that Betrayal needs a conclusion right?

So this piece is inspired by real-life events as well as my own spin on it. I do so hope you like it. Eep. Let me know what you think? Pretty please? As always, I rely on my favourite swimmer Schmitty to help a girl:)

Hey Anon who messaged me about the Schmelps fict-

Do you perchance have an article or something concerning the info you gave me about Allison’s dad’s feelings toward MP?
