Group Story: Tell-All Book

Every month, it seems that someone is spilling the beans about something – often in the form of a best-selling, tell-all book. True, it's usually a Hollywood celebrity or a former politician, but that doesn't mean the rest of us don't have salacious stories of our own.

So, let's put our heads together and create our own best-selling, tell-all book.

Characters, here's your chance to dish some dirt about your authors and the folks that share your worlds!

Authors, here's your opportunity to let it all out about your wayward creations!

(I'd suggest we keep it clean and polite – but where's the fun in that?)

I'm afraid it wouldn't be very honorable to tell tales about someone. I trust no one will be offended if I decline this kind invitation.

Laura Martone said...

Point well taken, Marenya. I'd expect no less from you.

There are other characters, however, who might not share your innate sense of decorum.

Olivia Harper said...

Like Marenya, I'm not a "kiss and tell" kind of gal, but on the other hand, it can often be cathartic to release your inner frustrations. Especially if you know the tell-all book will never actually be released.

Devi Marconi said...

Well, Liv, I hate to contradict my daughter, but by sharing your thoughts - or "frustrations," as you call them - at Come In Character, aren't we in effect publishing our tell-all book?

Olivia Harper said...

Oh, Mom, I hadn't thought about it that way. How very silly of me.

Guess that means I won't be telling the story of how Michael and I met after all.

Bo said...

"Kiss and tell?" We can do that here, Olivia?

Ricky, you haven't been paying attention. I can too tell my stories here!

Laura Martone said...

To be honest, Bo, this post was in honor of you...

Olivia Harper said...

You might regret that, dear author. I have a feeling that "discretion" and "Bo" don't often collide in the same sentence - unless, of course, Ricky's around to keep things in check.

And poor Ricky can't be everywhere.

Aidan said...

I want to hear Bo's stories.

Jason said...

As I'm sworn to my cousin, I cannot tell the things I've seen. But I wish I could.

Kaelin said...

Ok, I've got one. Aidan and I got involved with the same girl once. It was an accident.

Aidan said...

It wasn't an accident on her part.

Kalila said...

I see no one has actually bothered to tell a story here.

I can tell Bo's story very simply.

Once upon a time, there was a sleazy bass player who annoyed his band mates one too many times and was kicked out. The end.

Anyone else around here know how to play bass?

Kaelin said...

True. I'm still not sure why she wanted both of us. I mean, we're completely different people and clearly she liked you better than me.

Bo said...

Kalila, that's not very nice. I could tell some stories about a certain djinn I know...

Aidan said...

Snort. For a marksman with so many notches on your holster, you sure are innocent when it comes to some stuff.

Uh, Kae? She actually wanted both of us. You know. At the same time.

Ricky said...

You know, I don't think the original intent here was for personal attacks. Maybe we should tell a story about a celebrity.

Kaelin said...

That's just disgusting. And you said you couldn't read her, so how do you know?

Kalila said...

A celebrity, Ricky? That would be me. But I'll destroy any tale-tellers with fire.

Aidan said...

I'm not a complete idiot. Besides, Jason told me and he knows women better than anybody.

Bo said...

Hey, Aidan, where's the girl now? She sounds fun.

Marc said...

Shut up, lads. No one's interested in your sordid tales.

I want to hear a celebrity story from the band.

Aidan said...

Sorry, Bo. She's a demon. Not really your type.

But she WAS fun. While it lasted.

Nutmeg Cross said...

Um, Aidan, forgive my ignorance when it comes to demons... but why wouldn't an incubus be interested in a demon girl? Bo IS an incubus, right?

Daryl Harper said...

Actually, Marc, I AM kinda interested in Aidan and Kaelin's sordid tales. Have to live vicariously, you know. Things are sorta slow on South Padre Island.

Olivia Harper said...

Daryl!

Daryl Harper said...

Well, Mom, you might not like it, but it's true. I AM seventeen, you know - the hormones are outta my control.

It's okay, though - spring break is just around the corner... and the girls that come down are pretty cute.

Olivia Harper said...

Daryl, I can't believe you. What happened to Beth? She was a nice girl.

Devi Marconi said...

I hate to be a naysayer, Liv, but this is what happens in a tell-all atmosphere. Things are told that not everyone wants to hear.

So, I'm with Ricky. Let's tell a story about a celebrity. I've been living underground for so long, I'm kinda in the dark when it comes to celebrity news these days.

Not that I was ever all that curious about famous people... but telling our own stories has the potential to get ugly, don't you think?

Bo said...

Meg, I feed on human sexual energy. Demons don't interest me because I can't get a meal off them. Some demons are nice to look at, but they just don't do anything for me.

So...do you have any plans for this afternoon?

Indigo Cypress said...

Um, Bo, while I can appreciate my girlfriend's healthy curiosity about your needs, I feel compelled to remind you that she's spoken for... so there'll be no feeding on her sexual energy today, thank you.

Nutmeg Cross said...

And while I appreciate the chivalry, Indy, I can handle my own uncomfortable situations, thank you very much.

Uh, Bo, thanks for educating me, but as Indy said, I'm spoken for, so I think I'll have to pass on your thoughtful invitation. I do hope you find an afternoon playmate - it's no fun eating alone.

Ginger said...

had a celebrity in my tea room once. Meryl Streep came in. I couldn't believe it! The only way I could really be sure was from the name on the credit card when she paid the bill.

But nothing exciting happened. She just had lunch with some friends. I tried to be very nonchalant and I didn't ask her for her autograph. But I saved the receipt with her signature.

Laura Martone said...

That's funny, Ginger! I saw Meryl Streep once, too. She was eating a muffuletta in an Italian grocery in the New Orleans French Quarter. It was cool to see a Hollywood actress eating such a big sandwich - I didn't think those ladies EVER ate more than lettuce and wheat grass.

Ginger said...

I think they do between movies. They just starve themselves for filming. Did you see The Thomas Crowne Affair? Rene Russo looked practically skeletal.

Calvin Mertz said...

I'm always interested in sex - Uh, love stories. Hey, I know this great Nantucket type story.

"There once was a girl from Anhauser -"

Robert Crane said...

Ah, Dude, maybe not here. I know it doesn't have any bad language, but the inuendo . .

Amy Thompson said...

I'm dying for something sweet and romantic.

Indy, Meg, tell me something heartwarming about the two of you, on your travels.

Robert's been on a bender again, and wants nothing more than his beer and remote. I want some attention, something to distract me from worry. If he'd just put down the beer, take me for ice cream - yeah, its his favorite date, but at least its a date - or down to the arcade. I can deal with all the people, just to get him out and socializing.

But he thinks no one likes him unless he's drunk, or drinking. Ah, how I long for the dream of romantic love, of living happily ever after.

Nutmeg Cross said...

Something heartwarming, Amy? Hmmm... Well, we're with each other all the time, and we haven't killed each other yet. That must mean something, right?

Indigo Cypress said...

Well, there was the time we kept each other warm in a barn loft, during that rainstorm. You could tell Amy about that.

Nutmeg Cross said...

That's kinda private, Indy. Perhaps Amy can just use her imagination.

Sorry, Amy - but Bo might be lurking. You understand, right?

Amy Mertz said...

Yes Meg, I do understand. And Indy, I will use my imagination. Because lately, that's all thats left to me.

Ah, young love, the start of a new relationship. The courtship, the gifts, the desire to please and impress.

Oh, I so long for that time. I'm a closet romance reader, so I'd REALLY like to get the gossip on Kaelin and Aidan's mutual love. I'm so in the middle of that circumstance, I'd be anxious to learn "the other man's" perspective.

Kaelin said...

Aidan's trying to make a big deal out of nothing. I met her on a mission - she was my mark, actually. And we hit it off a little bit. And then later she met Aidan and things got more serious between them.

I don't know what this business is about wanting a menage a trios. We never even saw her at the same time, I mean, literally. We were in different countries.

Aidan said...

Oh, Kae likes to act all innocent, but he gets plenty on the road. He calls it his "cover." Snort.

Jason said...

Aidan, leave your brother alone. A man...er, demon male has his needs.

Lucy said...

You guys are such children.

Olivia Harper said...

Well, Lucy, it's good to know that men often behave like children - no matter what species they are.

Michael Harper said...

I resent that, you know.

Olivia Harper said...

Oh, honey, I didn't mean you, of course.

Some people can be so sensitive.
