    @ ace merrill.
    @ CharDeeMacDennis
    @ Reilly Smith

    LOL can I say that every time I see St. Louis, I always get all excited thinking we're talking about Marty St. Louis for like two split seconds and then I realized oh, wait there's this city and there's this team, nvm, Lacey sit down. Okay, sorry that was weird.

    @ Cam
    I think that is a wonderful idea! I would love to see a character besides Ger who does extremely questionable things, and even though Ger is doing her shit with evil evil intentions, it's nice to see someone who is trying to do good things through questionable means. Maybe Geraldine and Sierra will have a mini, under the covers rivalry with each acknowledging each other's search for the grimoire?

    What if Sierra is asked to kill Ference or something? I figured since he used to be in Boston and maybe while he was in Boston, he pissed someone off, so in order for Sierra to have access to the spell and cooperating witches, she has to kill Ference, and she particularly spends a lot of time in Edmonton, trying to get closer to the Oilers pack so she can get the job done?

    @ Angela
    That is awesome how she doesn't take the pack's shit, because I can just imagine Ellie giving Sharp a lot of shit for being his prankster self.

    But yeah, can't wait to see more of what you come up with!

    @ Calli
    I was just snooping around that first page and noticed that we have yet to pick a page divider, so i want to give you my vote. I like the bird one. More suitable for this story, no idea why I think that haha.

    lmfao lmfao
    It's funny because they don't know that the spell is in the book that's being passed around by the original 6!
    We agreed that no one opens it, yeah?

    I have a feeling that this story is gonna be long af.... unless we make chapters long??

    Point of View: 3rd person, past tense.
    Words: 1500-2500 minimum? (if you don't know what else to add, we're here to help one another)

    I'll start my chapter this month, while we continue to brainstorm for the other characters! I'll post my chapter here, so you all can read it when it's done and the next writer will follow, and so on. How many chapters do you reckon we'll (each?) have prewritten before we start posting?

    @ ace merrill.
    LOL then how about Sierra (sorry Cam, didn't mean to alter your storyline for you) just forgets about the grimoire and goes to make a deal with the devil to kill Ference (if she decides to stick with it.) Then just ignore the whole Sierra pursuing the grimoire thing? I think Geraldine will be suspicious of her because she's literally poking around the witches' business and she feels like she isn't to be trusted?

    Or if Sierra guesses (maybe not even 100% sure) that the counter-hibernation could be in the spell book, but like she, along with Ger doesn't know the grimoire is being passed around by the original six, so they're both going for a mad scramble for it, but literally miss the most obvious point about it?

    MAYBE! She finds out from whoever is telling her to kill Ference (I'm sorry I keep mentioning it, even though Cam hasn't agreed to this idea yet) and figures that with the knowledge, they have a hold over her and she will be more willing to do something for them?

    And @ Calli
    Yeah, the chapter might need to be longer than like 2000 words at least. I know it's bound to have like 30+ chapter, but we don't want this to drag out too long. We're gonna have to try and not have filler chapters because there's so much going on ya know?

    Personally, I won't have a problem with 2500+, and for group writes, I have a bad habit of writing 3000+ so I'm going to have to try really hard not to write too much!

    Third person is fine. I love third person better anyways!

    And I feel like we need to have at least 10-12 chapter done before we should post. Like four chapters for each of us, can't be too bad right? I just want to make sure we have enough and not make everyone wait too long to post.

    I like that idea! You write and post it here and I'll do the same. I basically know exactly what I'm going to do for my first chapter!

    lol, that's what I mean by the story being long, because we pretty much have 4 different stories to tell. XD I just hope that we can pull it all off without overwhelming readers. lmfao

    Yeah and good thing we'll post the chapters here first too because we can help each other edit stuff out, put stuff in, keep whatever for the next chapter, etc.

    I feel like if we are not going to overload the readers with all these information, we're going to have a lot of chapters maybe like 40+?

    @ ace merrill.

    I like the idea that someone "hires" Sierra to kill Ference. Who in the NHL would want him dead though?

    Throughout most of the story, Sierra is plotting to have Ference killed. She made several attempts but they end in failure. Someone eventually finds out probably around the time everyone finds out about Lacey's character lying to everyone about the kings. She explains everything to everyone, Boston is the quickest to forgive her, everyone else hates her (besides Toews, because well he's her brother.)

    I like the idea that whoever wanted Ference dead told Sierra that the counter-hibernation spell is in the grimoire. No way in hell is Sierra ever smart enough to know that it is in there. if no one knew it was in there, Sierra sure as hell doesn't.

    P.S.: this sounds stupid but what does third person past tense mean? I know what third person is but what is the whole 'past tense' thing?

    Maybe Kassian from the Canucks? Oilers fans don't like him, he was the one who broke Sam Gagner's jaw last pre-season and he was out for 8 weeks. And Andrew Ference got suspended 3 games for an illegal check to the head earlier this season. I don't know, haha, the 'nucks are irrelevant to the story.

    Also, I'm not very good at explaining stuff like this lmfao
    So I'll just link you to helpful articles on Mibba and copy and paste an example.

    Links:
    Narration
    Point of Views

    (I copied this from here)
    Past Tense:
    There was a blue box sitting on the night stand beside their bed and there was another girl staring at it. It was Marissa, the half-Hispanic girl whose mother gave her up because she was too young to raise her. Marissa had the bed on the other side of the night stand. The one next to the window. “What's with the box? Is it some kind of gift? Jewelry?”

    “I don't know. That wasn't there before,” Skye glanced at it again.

    “Well then, open it!” Skye listened to Marissa and took the box, pausing only to note that the same cloud-and-feather image from her dream was etched into the box.

    bold is the tenses or whatever

    Present Tense:
    There is a blue box sitting on the night stand beside their bed and there’s another girl staring at it. It’s Marissa, the half-Hispanic girl whose mother gave her up because she was too young to raise her. Marissa has a bed on the other side of the night stand. The one next to the window. “What's with the box? Is it some kind of gift? Jewelry?”

    “I don't know. That wasn't there before,” Skye says as she glances at it again.

    I mean we don't have to make the Canucks THAT important in the story, or the Canucks can have an important role in Sierra's story line. Cuz I feel like there isn't enough Canadian represent in the story. (Okay, we have the Oilers, Habs, and Flames, but not enough equivalent compared to the American teams involved.)

    It all depends on you, Cam, you decide what you want to do with your character's story line!

    AH, okay we need to get back into this or else we'll lose interest! And we've come so far already!
    What else do we all need to go over before we can start? Is everyone's characters/backgrounds completed?

    ^yeah we need to be involved and not lose interest in this story.

    As for me, I pretty much have a very developed storyline, so I'm good to go!

    Not going to lie, I'm pretty sure I have no plot line developed. I have no clue what to even do for this story :/

    Hi everyone, i'm very sorry but i thought I have time to get involved in this project. There is a lot going on in my life. in addition to that, I have no time to log onto mibba. I love the storyline we developed together but i am afraid I have to drop out.

    Again, I am so so so so so sorry i have to pull back from my commitment.

    @ captain mactruck @ ace merrill.

    Speaking along the terms of not having enough time, I hate to do this to you two because this is a very wonderful story idea but I'm going to have to drop out too. I bit off a lot more than I could chew taking on this story considering I work when I get ideas for my stories and it's hard for me to actually sit down and write ahead.

    Again, I'm so so so sorry to do this and I really can't wait to read this when you guys publish! I hope you're not mad.

    Aww I'm sorry to hear that as well! But yeah, don't worry about it, Calli and I had a lot planned before hand so I'm sure we both can work something out :) Anyways, thanks for letting us know as well!

    @ ace merrill.
    Oh, I'm not going ANYWHERE! I'm too excited for this story to let it go like that! I guess we can just proceed to what we were doing before, right?

    So we're sticking with the original idea right? Everything we have planned before we had other co-writers?

    Yes, yes! Yes
    I think it'll be easier now, lol. And less chapters.
    I'm gonna have to read through everything to get the feel of the idea again, it's there... just a little blurred. XD

    WOO. It seems we have disappeared for a bit, eh?

    Okay, so... we continue off from page 3, correct? LOL.

    Also, I was thinking that we should probably change the title? Because Clash of Claws makes me think that there is gonna be a war between wolves, and not wolves vs. vamps/witches. Unless we just change "Claws" to something else? XD Or just keep it. Think

    And this will be taking place during the 2013-14 season? Or a little after?

    I'm going to be editing my "Love Interest Relationship" under our characters to keep what I have in mind for Lida and Luke, so if you want me to add any of yours, let me know! :) I wanna start this soon! Imma start writing once I have everything ready for Luke and Lida, aka their background info and relationship points.

    Sorry I've been MIA for a while, family emergency and all. I won't be on as frequently, but I think things are starting to settle down a bit, so i'm going to be on here more and more frequently... and I can't wait to start this. It might actually keep my mind off of a lot of things.

    And I think it should be a little after, since LA Kings won the SCF and are in "power" - so at this point they are the biggest threat.

    And uh... I'll take a look at it but I don't think there's anything I want to put up. Think I mapped everything out real good.
