    Here's my story:
    Title: Can't we all just get along?
    Dinah, Jamie, Coco, Gwen, Demetria (Demi) and Jake are International spies who just can't get along. Gwen is really posh, Jamie is kind of stupid, and he's a guy with a girl name, Coco is really violent but girly at the same time, Demi is the smart one and Jake is the one that can't stop cracking stupid jokes. Dinah is not in the room.
    The story up until now is: Dinah, Jamie, Demi, Coco, Jake and Gwen are on a mission and they steal eighty thousand dollars of the best Indian Silk that the New York City Mafia owns. They escape with it, give it to their boss, and then they are somehow trapped in a tiny room with the most violent member of the Mafia.
    "Ewww!!! Did you just fart? If you're gonna be gross, do it a little bit more discretely."
    "Gwen! Stop being such a brat. We don't want to hear your complaints over and over again. It really does get annoying."
    "OK, so you're the one that farted?"
    "NO! I didn't say that. And don't just make a big deal out of it for no reason."
    "I'm just tired. Y'know. We've been running from one place to another all the time. It gets annoying."
    "Uhh...guys?"
    "Shut up, Jamie. We are having a serious and productive conversation over here. Well, Ok maybe not but still shut it."
    "Seriously..."
    "Guys, Jamie is right. Look over there."
    The girls turned their heads in the direction that Jamie was pointing to. A man with a gun stood there. His face was covered in scars. They all knew who he was.
    " So there you are... I was looking for you. I want my money back. You stole it. I know you did." he said.
    "No we didn't! We just took your si--" started Jamie but Coco kicked him before he could go on.
    "You are SUCH an idiot!" she said under her breath.
    "So YOU are the ones that took my one of a kind, and should I say, eighty thousand dollar Indian silk? I thought you could do better than that, but I guess I expected too much from you." the man said.
    "Look, doll face, we DID take your silk, but it was because of legal issues. We don't have it now. And what's that money thing you were talking about? Mmmmm... I heard that the police were looking for the guy that stole the thirty thousand dollars from the bank. Hmmmm...who could it be? HINT HINT...uhh... YOU??"
    "DOLL FACE? OK, you have gone WAY past the limits. I could have killed you just now. You know what I want. Now, tell me where it is."
    "49578 5th Avenue. Top Floor." said Demi. Then she winked at the others.
    "DEMI! Why did you tell him? UGGGHHHH! Now we have to hide it somewhere else." said Jake (he was quite sarcastic about it, and made it a bit too obvious.)
    "YEAH... ANOTHER PLACE." said Jamie, who made it even more obvious than Jake.
    "You know, you are making my work very hard this way. You're just kids. Let professionals do the job. You guys shouldn't be out so late anyways." said the man, in a softer tone
    "Just KIDS?!?! YOU'RE the one that has gone WAY past the limits now. You haven't been much of a good example anyway, showing up with a gun. Can't you beat up a group of KIDS? Seriously. And actually, you adults, as you call yourselves, do not put up much of a fight. At the least bit of a tear or pouty face you agree with whatever useless thing we ask for." said Coco
    "Why are we even talking about this? You're wasting my time. I have some silk to find and some cash to hide." he said
    "So you wanna keep the LOLLY all to yourself? What would the rest of the Mafia say...?" said Jake. Then, they all looked at each other and huddled. All the guy could hear were small whispers. Then they all stood up and winked at each other. Demi whispered in Jake's ear:
    "You keep him away from our plan. Do your thing, I'll do the rest, 'kay?"
    "Sure." whispered Jake. Then Demi started piling up all the furniture in one side of the room. On the other side, Jake was showing the man his Karate kicks. He suddenly kicked the gun out of the man's hand. He looked at the other side of the room. Demi had piled all the furniture against the door.
    "Guess you're stuck with five kids and a gun. What to do, what to do?" said Gwen. Suddenly there was a loud `BANG!´Demi put all the furniture back in it's place. The five kids hurried out of the room. Dinah stood there, looking at them. Before she could see what was in the room, Jake closed and locked it.
    "What happened? I didn't know where you were. You could have called me or something..." said Dinah
    "Sorry, our phones were downstairs." said Coco
    "But, anyway, I heard a loud noise, what was that?" said Dinah
    "You can live without knowing about that, can't you?" said Gwen. Dinah nodded and they all giggled and went downstairs. Once again, another normal day.
    The End
    Comments by ally
    1. Think of plot—is it original? (If an adaptation, is it creative or interesting to you?) What suggestions do you have for the author(s)?
    I realy liked the plot and it was really original
    2. Think about problems that the characters face. Are there complications that add enough suspense, tension, or interest? Is there a climax that satisfies you? Is the resolution satisfying? What could be added or changed? Your charactars are very dicriptive and show a lot of detail
    3. Think of characterization—are the characters life-like? Are characters likable and enjoyable? Do we get a good sense of character from many of these: description, dialogue, narrator's opinion, discussion from other characters, the character’s own actions? Your characters are really life like and i thought that they were very discriptive and they showed a lot of personality and i like the juicy words
    4. Think of imagery and details. Do they help you see and hear and experience the story? What details would you like to see in the next revision of the story? The story is full of suspence and i really liked the plot
    5. What areas of the story need the most improvement? What suggestions do you have for the author?
    I think this story has a lot of quotes and is sorta like a skript i think that you should add more words and sentances rather then quotes
    but other than that the story was great!!!!!!
    I HATE IT!!!! YOU NEED TO WORK ON YOUR SPELLING AND THE PLOT I HATE IT!!!! SO YOUR STORY DIES
    well...anyway, thnx ALLY !! Finally someone makes sense...that other guy does not make sense at all so ...well whatever

    Then in the forest I heard a branch break and it was nearby. I whirled around. Then I saw a girl in bunny slippers running away. I reconized the slippers that belonged to Jen. All the pieces of the puzzle began to fall into place. Jen was the one who tripped Kate. There was only one Garbaldi left. That was me. I was the top representative to swim. She just had to get rid of me. Then she would win. But honestly? All this trouble to win a swimming contest? OH YEAH! I WON GOLD! This guy named Geoffrey won silver and Kate won bronze. Another

    ...
    I have a question, which perspective did you write the story in because you kept on switching? One of the perspectives I noticed you wrote in was journal form which is past tense, and other was present tense. It seemed like you were carrying your laptop around with you and writing every step you are taking. Otherwise, I like your writing it shows you, and you won't believe it but I can actually picture you just by reading your story.

    We are using the story telling format of 1001 Nights to tell a new story, a story of our world. The format of 1001 Nights is unique, with thousands of different stories embedded within the one main story. We hope that our student stories will become "never ending tales," with each links to different individual stories embedded within our one overarching story. Our story starts here!
