Possum got it . . . .

Either way, the tumor's been troubling her since she was 4, and she's still alive in her mid-40s, so as long as the radiation works, she'll be okay.

That makes me happy and sad at the same time...

That just makes me sad... But I realize you probably don't want to hear about that. People who get pitied too much often come to resent those who pity...

Thanks, cen.

And, would it be an issue if I wrote the response from a third-person perspective? I have a hilarious idea that wouldn't work to as good of an effect in 1st person.

OR, how about first person from someone else's perspective, beside Manta's?

*Reads every post thoad has ever written*

You're about a 42/99 on the D-bag scale. Not too shabby.

Well, considering the consistency, I would say no, but in the matter of good story telling, go ahead. It's not like it won't fit in, people have been writing 3rd person from the beginning.

OR, how about first person from someone else's perspective, beside Manta's?

If you can pull it off believable, I doubt it would hurt (if you are going to use one of the contestants, you should probably ask permission first). I would like to see how the result would be.

On another note, I am still amused by the people who use "victestants" in their entries. Not that you should stop, or anything, I am just amused that a made up word describing exactly what they are would be used by the people going through it.

Alt: sorry to hear that. Your aunt's story sounds quite unusual, even speaking in terms of brain tumours. On the bright side, at least she doesn't have a glioblastoma.

Yes, I noticed this too. Maybe it might end up being used in future OCTs... you should probably reserve rights to the word Cen, might make a bit of money lol.

btw, email your responses to waomod@yahoo.com as usual, kthnx!

Yeah.  It's a pretty slow-growing tumor, but it can't be removed because of its location, so the doctors have to just cut it down with each surgery, and because the tissue's been cut into so much, that can't happen anymore.  We'll have to see how radiation works.
