“All Aussies Don’t Talk Like That…”

This couldn’t wait until next week because I’m sitting here about to boil over…

Let me begin by saying that I’m not trying to offend anyone and if I offend you, feel free to leave. Nonetheless, I think I had about 12 conversations last week about how I know that all Aussies don’t talk the same. I had several extended conversations with different people about someone feeling some type of way because my written Australian accent sounds like it’s from the outback.

Does everyone from Australia sound like they’re from the outback? Of course, not!

Do people from the outback sound like they’re from the outback? Why, yes, they do! Hence, somebody in Australia sounds like my freaking Australia accent!

I didn’t just pull this shit out of the air, people. I listened to Australians that I know of  (Steve Irwin and Crocodile Dundee) and so that I wasn’t just getting a commercialized Australian accent (which I figured Crocodile Dundee was), I listened to several YouTube videos. If you go to my Pinterest page, Sam Worthington—an English-born Australian actor—is my “Jaxon.” I even listened to videos of him and Nicole Kidman talking about their latest movies. Two completely different Australian accents. Nicole barely has one at all.

I watched instructional videos—made by Aussies.
I watched travel videos—made by Aussies.

And I wrote what I heard—as an American listening to an Australian accent… not as an Australian who can’t even hear an Australian accent, let alone read one! Of course, it looks strange to them! As far as they’re concerned, they don’t talk like that, but as far as Americans can hear, some of them do! 

And let’s talk about that word “some.”

Can I please get a little back-up from my American readers? Can I please get a little backup that we know and understand that not all Aussies speak the same, but that my sorry little attempt at an Australian accent is actually how we hear some Aussies speak? I swear to God—If I get one more person to tell me, “We don’t all talk like that,” I think I’m going to fucking lose it! 

DIDN’T I FUCKING SAY THAT ALREADY? Didn’t I say that I already know that ALL AUSSIES DON’T SPEAK THE SAME? All AMERICANS don’t speak the same, dammit! How many comments, responses, and disclaimers do I have to post???

I’ve gotten mixed reviews on my Australian accents. Some Aussies like it (or at least understand what I’m trying to accomplish), some don’t. A lot of people love it and find it colorful. Hate it or love it, that’s all okay, as long as you understand that I ALREADY KNOW THAT ALL AUSSIES DON’T SPEAK LIKE THIS! Fucking hellyou would think that I was standing on the rooftop screaming repeated racial slurs! One person actually told me to stop writing it…

I could have come through the damn screen like Ghost Dad…

People have no idea how hard the Australia storyline was for me to write. You’re not going to know it by reading it, but that shit was fucking difficult. It was a toil and it was laboring trying to make everything realistic, interesting, and fall in line, and of all the things I worried about people complaining about, I’ve got people bitching about the fucking accent and one with the audacity to tell me to stop writing it. 

I’ll repeat what I told her so that it’s clear to everyone.

You have the option to stop reading my story if you don’t like something that I’m writing. You do not have the option to tell me to write or to stop writing anything ever

All the different accents, dialects, and twangs in Americasomeone in Seattle could probably attempt to write a true Nawlins accent, and folks most likely wouldn’t have a clue what they were saying if they correctly hit all of the twangs and colloquialisms of the region. Yet, both places are regions in the U.S., and most people not from Nawlins don’t even know what I’m saying now… but Nawlins does.

Falala, I know you told me to ignore it; I saw the message pop up as I was typing, but it was either I say something or I sit here and explode… and my husband already walked in the door asking me what was wrong.

    Don’t let them get to you! It’s your story and I personally love it. It’s not like that’s not the accent that their thinking of while their reading it. It’s not like we’re all dumb asses and think that’s the way all australian’s sounds like.

    • Thank you! My point exactly. For the love of God, do they think I’m stupid? Maybe they do…

      • immabblol1 says:

        Keep up your great writing,and forget about asses. Your doing this from the heart and choosing to share it with us. So if they don’t like it leave it. No negative bull in these parts. They’re those of us that love your stuff. So let the hater’s be. We’ve got your back. Thank you again for sharing

  2. Better2BeLoved says:

    BG, I know I don’t have to tell you this, but please ignore these folks. There are different dialects in every country, nobody ever sounds the same even if they’re from the same country. If they can’t appreciate your art then they can go kick rocks.

    • I ignore what I can, but when someone tells you to stop writing or stop writing something, that’s impossible to ignore.

      • Florence Anne says:

        Hi BG

        I’ve never left a comment before but have loved your mammoth story from when it was a baby mammoth. I felt compelled with your latest attacks from readers to say that your method of writing it out really helps me. I’m terrible at doing accents myself, so seeing it written out like this really helps. I should point put that I travel a lot and have been to Australia a couple of times, plus I work with some and have family over there, so I’ve heard plenty of accents from Sydney and Melbourne. Readers need to consider that even with your amazing writing, they read those words with their own accent. So you saying “Lahrie” and me saying it using my English accent do not sound the same and may affect where in Australia it appears to be from. For example, in some US accents “Bobby” is pronounced “Barbie” (if I were to write it out using my accent), but if you saw “Barbie” it would sound more like “Barrrrrbie” or something to me! So what I’m trying to say is that it is variable and there’s no single right answer when spelling oit accents.

        Also for the complainers they need to realise that you aren’t being paid to do this and do it to share your amazing talent with all of us. If they don’t like what you produce, there is an exit for them as they don’t have to continue reading! Perhaps rather than just complaining, they should make suggestions of how you could improve the Aussie speech (but realise that their suggestion may not be used and not be offended by that).

        You are amazing and please don’t be put off by whiners. Looking forward to the next chapter.

      • Yes! Yes! That’s exactly how I feel. I’ve had several wonderful Aussie readers say, “Hey, Lynn, I see what you’re aiming at. We say this word this way or that word that way,” and I’m SO grateful to them for that!

        You hit every point I’ve been trying to make since the beginning. Thank you very much! ❤

  3. Susan says:

    Haters gonna hate BG. You stay the course and rise above. The fans will follow where ever YOUR story takes us. And leave the BS in the dust. We love your story as is…your interpretations and your writing style. You cant please everyone. So just write for you. And those who do love this story and the characters you have developed will follow you through till the end of this journey. Much love hugs and respect BG.

    Breathe in, breathe out. Get a glass of wine. If it doesn’t work, just say “fuck them.”

  5. Margaret says:

    As a ‘Noo Zilander’ (that’s just off the east coast of Oustrailia), I think you did a bloody good job of the accent (for an Amurican).
    They say ‘sucks’ for ‘six’.
    We say ‘sex’, according to them.
    Long may our differences live. They’re what makes the world such an interesting place to be.

  6. jjgoldmann says:

    I agree with Falala. Ignore them! After all this is a fictional story and its FANTASTIC story at that!

  7. Junebride says:

    I just came across this, Goddess. For one, you are doing a magnificent job of writing this story, you share with us your marvelous gift, and we enjoy it immensely. So much, that we can’t wait for the next one (don’t get mad at me for saying this–that is how much we enjoy it–nothing wrong intended).

    Those who keep talking about the accent you’re using for YOUR story are not your fans, so stop listening to them and ignore their antics. I am getting tired of these people criticizing your work. Please just ignore them. THEY CAN STOP READING IF THEY DON’T LIKE IT–THIS IS FOR ALL OF YOU COMPLAINING…

    There are different accents, dialects everywhere. Where I come from, there were 7 different provinces at the time and everyone had a different way of talking. Some talked like singing for me, they said we were the ones singing. No one is ever happy, but we didn’t get into these kind of petty discussions or accusations.

    They can stop reading your precious story, better for us, we don’t have to listen to them! If they want to be in for the best ride of their life, they need to keep quiet about this. What you have been doing takes a lot of time and a lot of work to accomplish. WE, your true fans, appreciate all the work you do and time you invest in it. Don’t ever forget that!

    STOP COMPLAINING PEOPLE, IF YOU THINK YOU CAN DO BETTER, WRITE YOUR OWN. LET US KNOW WHAT YOU ARE WRITING SO WE DON’T READ ANY OF IT!!!

    Sorry, Goddess. The last drop just fell in my cup and it has runneth over!! I apologize to you for ranting, but mean every word I’ve said.

    Have a good night and sleep tight. My apologies to your hubby for all these people are putting you through. Once again, please ignore them. Remember: YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

    I am not going to re-read this because I don’t want to change anything.

    Love and hugs
    xoxoxoxoxo

    • Don’t apologize, my darling! I had to stop writing or my ranting post would have never ended and you took the words that I didn’t say right out of my mouth! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! ❤ ❤

  8. seralynsmom says:

    Cajuns man. Lemme tell you. I’ve never been to their area, but I’ve seen videos. You can barely understand a damn thing those fuckers say! Lmao.

    I was born in Hawaii. Left when I was one so that don’t count. Raised until nearly four in Indianapolis, Indiana. Lived in the southern part of Pennsylvania until I was 16. Moved to North Carolina—also the southern part—until I was 19. Moved back to Indianapolis. I get made fun of sometimes when that southern twang hits here in Indy. Or the long O in things like home and phone I developed from living in PA. My accent varies depending on certain things. M

    If I talk to family from PA, it takes about an hour for me to lose that accent. If I get excited, mad, or whatever. That NC accent comes out and the more excited, mad, or whatever I get the thicker it gets. I have it when I sing country, I have it when I’m reading anything where a character clearly has a southern accent. It’s crazy!!

    When I read your Aussie accent, I don’t do so outloud. I do it in my head like most people do. I hear Steve Irwin, Sam Worthington, and a number of others. Hell, Hugh Jackman’s accent gets a bit thick sometimes! But it seems people think we like to pull shit out our asses when we write! No ma’am!

    This is just like when I write a background for something and someone tells me I’m wrong. No honey, I did die diligence!!! I research the fuck outta everything and sometimes that research leads me to shit I didn’t even actually need to research! Don’t tell me I’m wrong when I know I’m right and if I’m not 💯?? I write a disclaimer telling people I looked it up but couldn’t find it so I’m doing what I want. It’s called creative fucking license! Authors are allowed to do that believe it or not, if we didn’t readers wouldn’t get wonderful worlds like Middle Earth and Narnia. Need I go on?

    NEVER tell an author what they can and can’t write and if you don’t like it, don’t read it! That damn simple. It’s not like the accent is in there so much that you can’t scroll passed that itty bitty moment and read the rest of the chapter Ffs!

    Now, let’s have a little whooosah moment and calm this shit down. Lmao

  9. Mnmsmom says:

    Omg I honestly admire you!! I could never be brave enough to write like you do. I have never left a comment before today but felt I needed to support you. I am a mother of 2 and your story is my little escape every week. Do people not realize that you try to make this as authentic as possible. Your work is amazing please keep writting because I would be so sad. Please know that we appreciate and love your work!! So haters be gone!!💙🖤

  10. Hey hun,
    Please don’t let the negative views work you up. You have made it perfectly clear as to what your intent is in regards to the Australian dialogue. If they don’t like it there is definitely an unsubscribe button that they can hit. Even as an American not everyone speaks the same. I was born in New York but lived in North Carolina and people tell me all the time that I sound and speak different, so I completely understand. Your stories are amazing and that’s what matters. Keep doing what your doing. I’m pretty sure those complaining probably don’t have have half the talent that you do when it comes to writing. I look forward to the next chapter.

  11. K win says:

    As an Aussie that lives in “Straya” ( that’s Australia in Ozzie) I find it hilarious to read. Your aren’t being offensive or degrading so don’t listen to the bloody dickheads that just like to complain. They just need to knock it off or find something better to do. Yes some sentences have our slang in it way more than normal but that’s what poetic license is all about. Deep breath and have a drink 🙂
    I am not normally someone that comments or posts but these idiots need to stop. If u don’t like it don’t read it.

  12. Anja Nollmann says:

    Hi Goddess, you are doing good. Please stop reading comments from people who can’t read your warnings.
    All the best from Germany

  13. Donna Adkins says:

    Seriously, ignore the complete and utter idiots, who, after reading God knows how many disclaimers about the ‘accent’, still chose to berate you do not deserve your response!

    I am an English gal who has lived all over the world, met many dialects, spoke many languages and have never once thought to myself, how would I translate that into paper! We’ll done you, it was awesome!!!!

    Love, love, love your work, keep it coming and in the words of Taylor Swift……shake it off!!!!!!

    Big hugs xoxoxo Donna

  14. FinnHanna says:

    Howdy folks. Here´s another POW. Aussies themself could never write the way a non aussie could and that´s why the writing Goddes does is so good and so talented, I literally hear the dialect in my head as I make an effort to read the text. it was just the same with Choonks and I for one enjoy every Word BG puts out here. The talent, the effort, goddes damn, just be proud that she chose Australian Cruise, it could have been somewhere else and then you australians would have LOVED to read that accent. These people who keep sending you shit, they just don´t have what you and us have, life, reason and the magic of imagination. Breathe the pain away and keep going, we have your back. ❤ your biggest fan from the happiest country of the World 😀 😀 😀

    • Thank you so much!!! ❤ ❤ FYI, not all of my Aussie readers are slamming me. I'm getting a lot of support from many of them. There are just that handful that feel that I'm mindlessly butchering the language. 😉

  15. bichonmomma says:

    As Charlie Brown would say Good Grief. Before every chapter you have written a chapter you have a preface about the accent. It is a piece of fiction people. The writer is allowed to use whatever accent with whatever dialect she wants. People from the south don’t all sound alike same for the north. People in Ireland have different dialects. This is why actors have dialect coach’s to help them get the right dialect for a role. You are right some Aussies barely have an accent while others can be rather hard to follow. In my opinion it makes the story better to have Jaxon with a heavy Aussie accent. Makes us work a bit to understand what he says. Some words are easier than others. In having such a heavy accent, it makes it easier to put us into the scene of the story. I like it written this way. It helps put Christian at a disadvantage of understanding what Jaxon is saying. I think you have done a great job of getting us into the Australian cruise with the accent. It lights the scenes a bit like with the bikini contest with all of the comments Christian didn’t know what most of them meant. Sometimes I think readers just want to bitch about something just so they can. If they don’t like it, then don’t run eat it and move on. I know saying ignore them is impossible as this is your creation but seriously those complaining need to get over it. Next chapter preface just say that this is the Aussie accent you pictured for your charecter and go on with the chapter. They can like it or lump it. Your story therefore your accent.

  16. It amazes me (though it probably shouldn’t) that some people think it is fine to bash a person who is providing them with a wonderful adventure through a fictional story that is free. Would these same folks have bashed William Shakespeare for his dialogue dialect? My guess is yes! Those that are offended, need to take a step back and ask themselves, ‘why am I so upset that this work of fiction is setting me off?’ Of course every area of the world has different accents and way of expressing themselves. Personally I am enjoying the challenge of reading the dialogue and putting myself in Christian or Ana’s place to figure out what the heck they are saying! This is what fiction is all about. If you are one of the offended ways, I beg you to only read this story with an adult beverage in your hand, so that you can chill along with the rest of us as we enjoy this wonderful work of art!

    • You’re right, they probably did bash William Shakespeare. I seem to remember reading that he was the object of some ire and displeasure. I know it comes with the territory, but if it comes in a forum where I can respond, then I’m fucking going to respond. Knowing that I still have readers like you that appreciate the spirit in what I’m trying to accomplish makes me feel better, though. ❤

  17. Dee says:

    I’m sorry some people are so insensitive. As I posted before, the accent was my favorite part of this whole adventure. As a person that will probably never visit this place it made it more real for me. I appreciate the time and research you put into this. See that’s the thing, you can tell by reading the story that you don’t take shortcuts on anything, you make sure it’s factual, that it flows etc. Much love to you.

  18. Jeangb says:

    Well all I can say is f*** ‘em.
    I have sisters out there, they’ve been there for fifty years, and the point is? That they still speak in a Yorkshire accent but… it has Australian overtones now that takes some getting used to. I couldn’t attempt to write it.
    You just continue to write in your own inimitable style, most of us love it.

  19. afrapic says:

    I have been following your story from the beginning, but never felt the need to comment. But as a non native English speaker, i have to tell you that the written accent helps to imagine them speaking. The same happened with Keri’s accent. And if i’m tired of it or i want to read faster, i just skip it! It is your story! I was curious about the process of how you came up with the written accent, so thank you for sharing that! Love you, really!

  20. mothergolf@earthlink.net says:

    holy crap….all Americans don’t talk the same, and the British tell us we don’t really speak English….omg….people get a life……are they so superior that they have to nit pick and find fault with everything…..? blow them out of the water, send them to the moon…………..carry on there and leave them in a trail of dust….

    • I was thinking that same thing as I was writing my post. I didn’t know if it was a shot when she said, “We speak the Queen’s English quite well,” and I didn’t want to read anything into it because I was already very sensitive and I didn’t want to be irrational. But that was the first thing that came to my mind, because you’re absolutely right… The British do say that we don’t speak English, that we speak American. And I don’t take that as a bad thing because America was started because a group of settlers who left for religious freedom. So they came over here and started a new country, and if they ended up losing their accent and having a new language, so be it. But I’m not pissing on anybody’s language, and I don’t know why I’m being checked for it. All I did was change some vowels, switch out or add some consonants so that the words could illustrate what I’m hearing. And the comments that I see, you would think I had the people swinging from trees, scratching their heads, making articulate sounds and throwing shit at people!

  21. Barbara says:

    Please BG, these haters are not worth it, especially to your health! Glad you were able to vent & get it out there but you shouldn’t have to! I freakin loved the Aussie accent you’ve provided us. I actually read those chapters aloud so I could practice. I think you did great! I also LOVED when you did Kerry’s island Patois accent & I die when you have Chuck imitate her! Most of us love what you write, so the haters can just bugger off!

  22. escha89 says:

    Insert the Harry Potter and the audacity of this bitch meme cause wtf. I love your story and even when I don’t like/agree I keep my mouth shut bc I love your story as whole so much. You are amazing babe!

    sigh sigh sigh Where do I begin?

    I AM PISSED SOOOO BLOODY PISSED. The next troll that has the nerve to tell this author what to write just be aware you are now on the Troll watch list. You will be fried dried and fed to the pigs.

    Sweet Goddess I’ve got 5 words for you NO! MY STORY MY WAY!! This is all that you need to say. In bright red letters if you like.

    I don’t want to ever read again you apologizing to anyone because they don’t like how you write your story. No no this is unacceptable. They don’t deserve a lengthy personal message explanation. This is taking up your personal Goddess time and is completely wrong. Please do not give there reply the same weight you do the rest of us.

    I need to go pet my cat. I came by to say something to you and found this instead and have completely lost my thoughts.

    If you enjoy your serenity today do not cross my path. I’m off troll hunting. Silence doesn’t work with them. I’m going to sharpen my verbal stiletto, no make that a Kbar. It will do more damage.

    Unhappy Monday trolls! This is your one and only warning.

    No Peace, Falala

    • Oh, my Falala has her claws sharpened and ready!!!!

      • falalalynx says:

        Goddess,
        Damn straight! I go to bed and all hell breaks loose. giggle I thought my bar fight days were over. grin Guess not. But you were surrounded by a wonderful support group. giggle They would have never laid a hand on you. lol

        I would like to say to all of you Australian fans who stood up in support of our Goddess and spoke out against your fellow Aussie’s you are all right. Round of Foster’s for all my new mates. lol OR if you’re like our Goddess some of that lovely Ozian wine. Oh yeah Goddess there are some wonderful wines from down undah.

        Trouble making Falala has been doing a little investigating, oh boy here we go. And I can’t find another post from them in any of the last 5 chapters. So are they ringers or plants? Sent to mess with perfection? They can’t stand that we are all having such a good time and look forward to the next chapter with baited breath? Just what the hell is baited breath anyway? They are definitely trouble makers. I would have dug deeper but I kept getting sucked into the vortex of rereading everything. Some times we are brilliant. lol

        I damn near petted my cat balled in one spot. She bit me and jumped off my lap. But she can’t resist me and soon returned. lol

        Peace out now. No more negativity. Falala

      • The kitty bit you, Falala??? No, they can’t resist us. They get upset and they come back a few minutes later. I thought about “plants” during a moment of extreme sensitivity, but no, I seriously doubt it.

      • falalalynx says:

        giggle Yeah that’s what she did. She didn’t break the skin or anything but she did let me know she was so done with me. Good morning darlin.

        Peace, Falala

  25. Donna says:

    OMG I cannot believe (lack of a better word) immaturity of some. I have thoroughly enjoyed your story more than words can describe. I wait anxiously for the next chapter. My opinion you did a dam fine job at the accent. I so enjoy listening to any accent when spoke preferably by a man. For me you were spot on. Of it wasn’t accurate who cares we all know everyone speaks there language a little different from each other. I’m here again for the story and characters. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Thank you for the time and creativity you devote to your characters.

  26. Camille Henley says:

    Goddess this chapter was amazing.. As another read stated some of us have never traveled anywhere outside of the US. You have given us the imaginations of traveling and I for one are grateful for the experience. Many thanks to you.

    Goddess the world are so hateful now days. If it wasn’t the dialog or the language they would have found something else to complain about. Some peoples are just so miserable and classless that if happiness knocked at their doors they wouldn’t open because they are just filled with absolutely nothing but rejections and abandonment. Lets just wish happiness for them. As another reader stated “they are not your fans” with that said shake that shit off.. Your fans knows that you have done your researched and taken it a step farther by putting a disclaimer. Not sure what you could have done differently.

    Thanks for all that you do and a huge thanks to your family.

  27. S. Hodgson says:

    I’m with you babe. Not all Aussies sound like that but I have met a few who do!!! I’m from AZ I’ve met tons of people from traveling. I could guess where some people were from and other I had no clue. I’m happy you made him sound that way because I find that way of speaking hot!!!

  28. I remember hearing and audio book where the sexy main character spoke with an Australian accent. I loved it and never forgot it and I was thinking of him when I was writing the accent. People sure know how to piss on a wet dream!

  29. shazjackmeg says:

    WOW some people astound me – just enjoy the bloody story and b grateful for the update !! As an English speaking Scot even in our tiny nation we don’t all speak the same – but get over it and enjoy the story😡
    Thank you for the updates brilliant as always
    Ignore the negative and hopefully u won’t need to explain for the umpteenth time about the accent – I appreciate the effort however – thank you and looking forward to more -G’day mate xx

  31. Stuart says:

    Oh please! Would people cut their crap and just loosen the damn up!!

    Obviously not ALL people of a country would speak the same!! Give me one country where the accent is the same from North to South and East to West!! That such a thing needs explanation over explanation and caveat over caveat just beats me!

    I am an avid follower of Masterchef Australia and let me tell you, I’ve come across at least 10 different accents, tone, expressions, etc!

    But if I were to listen to your characters talking, I’m definitely gonna think in my head “Hey, thats an Australian!” and thats what is important! And it takes a lot of research and a lot of effort to type in a completely different accent and yet, get it so damn perfect. Yes, I called it perfect, alright?

    Also, I’m pretty damn sure that I’ve met Jaxon and he speaks exactly like that.. He’s an Australian and he speaks like that! In fact, Jaxon just told me that these haters need to take a break because while he was speaking, BG here recorded and then exactly penned down like that, ok?? So Jaxon, being an Australian, asks you all to cool the fuck down.

    I’m done!

    • I love you so much right now… ❤ ❤ ❤

    • falalalynx says:

      lol Stuart!! lol There you are. And boy did you come in with a bang. I’ve been wondering where you’ve are.

      You lucky girl. You’ve been chatting with Jaxon. sigh Is he as nice as he sounds because he sounds just dreamy? And his name, one of my all time favorite hero’s in one of my favorite books his name is Jaxon. Bonus points for me. giggle

      You made a good point which I hadn’t considered just how difficult it is to even write an accent. Goddess you are magical.

      Nothing but love this morning.

      Peace, Falala

  32. Jennifer says:

    Why, oh why, do people have to be such big assholes? You’ve prefaced it too many times for people to still be having this negative reaction, in my opinion. You don’t need me to tell you what a great writer you are, or to just ignore the negativity, those are obvious words. What I will say is that I very much appreciate your writing with or without the accent. It draws me deeper into the characters and the storyline, and I love the visuals I get from the written word. That’s when I know I’m reading something extraordinary. We should be embracing writers because it takes an enormous amount of effort to write anything, let alone something such as phenomenal as the Butterfly Saga which has spanned six years. You’ve brought me so much pleasure through your writing and have been an inspiration in my own writing. So, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that!

    It’s a STORY. If you don’t like the way she writes then don’t read it. Why are you all so worked up over an accent? Me personally, I’m fine with it. Those of you giving her a hard time at how she writes HER STORY should be ashamed. She’s not stealing someone else’s line. She’s using her own creative way to give us an amazing story to read. Cut her slack or STOP READING.

    Oh my gosh! I cannot believe the way some people talk to you and none of them can even write a f****** paragraph if their life depended on it. You are brilliant don’t listen to these I don’t even know what to call them. You are so much better and on such a different High platform than they could ever be. Don’t let them get to . You have too many people that love you love this butterfly series love your golden series please please please do not listen to them I think you’re brilliant. And I’m so thankful that you share this wonderful Talent of yours. You just keep writing baby and I will always be reading. You’re simply the best

    I think you did a damn good job of the accent. Don’t let assholes like them put you down. You are doing a great job. Can’t wait for the next chapter. Keep your head up and know there are a lot of people who loves your story!!! 🙂 🙂

    • Thank you, my friend. The encouragement that I get from you guys is a salve to my injured Muse. 🙂 ❤

        Corpsman Corpsman over here! We have an injured muse. Steady steady easy now she needs loads of TLC. Break out the xoxox salve xoxox. Spread it liberally. Coat the injury well. There there now. You are going to be just fine. In a day or two I predict you’ll be good as new. Nurse Meeko front and center. Take your patient over to the shade of that tree and make sure she knows how loved she is. Kisses all round.

      • LOL, Meeko made me mad last night, so he didn’t get snuggles, but he’ll most likely get snuggles today. 😉

        You’re ALWAYS a salve, Falala. ❤

    Don’t loose your Time with those silly comments. How ever we just need to knows that’s some guy from other country. What’s the problem how he speak. Is not the mean on the story. Just follow the lines and read understanding who’s the character.

    Until next chapter. 😁🥰

    To all of those who have come to support our Goddess, THANK YOU!! Her writing makes us forget our problems if only while we are reading her wonderful story (many have re-read it more than once). That is talent, loving what you are doing, giving us your all and we appreciate it and you immensely.

    It takes a special person to dedicate her free time to research, write, and be willing to share with us her amazing story. And we do hope and pray it goes on forever.

    So let’s forget these assholes and just say fuck it (sorry but not sorry about my French…). No one tells a dentist how to take care of your teeth, the surgeon how to operate, etc. No one should tell a writer, a very good one at that, how to write her story and share it with us. Stop the madness you haters!!

    When one does not like a program on TV, one changes the channel; don’t like music on the radio, one changes the station. So, don’t like how the story is going, stop reading. Simple as that!

    Have a great day, Goddess, have that glass of wine, snuggle with hubby, and carry on. We love you and your Muse.

    xoxoxoxox

    P.S. I love everything our sisters have written here. Just go on and finish the next update (OMG, now BG is going to kill me). LOL You know I’m not rushing you, don’t you? Love you much.

    • falalalynx says:

      Fuck it? Fuck it? Did you sweet Junie just say fuck it? lmao Now explain to me why the French get credit for this expression? Is fuck a French word? Doesn’t sound French. Sounds oh I dunno American. lol Falala are you looking to cause trouble? Why yes yes I believe I am. I’m going to go Google it. grin The final answer to so many questions.

      Oh and Junie sweetie I do believe the Goddess can understand the difference between someone waiting in anticipation and someone demanding MORE! NOW! RIGHT NOW! You are expressing your excitement. There is no demand in what you say.

      Peace, Falala

      • falalalynx says:

        It’s Dutch or Swedish in origin. giggle SEE I knew it wasn’t French. giggle And what did you learn new today little Falala? Oh just that fuck means to copulate or fornicate but that the French have nothing to do with it. lol

      • “Pardon my French” or “Excuse my French” is an expression used when someone curses as an apology for using profanity. 😉

    • I love you guys so much, I just posted a bonus chapter. Thank you for your encouragement! ❤

  38. Junebride says:

    You are just too much, Falala! You remember “Did I say that?…” a TV program–I think his name was Herckel or something like that (my memory fails me again). Thank you for researching it, we both learned something today… lol It’s really just my language barrier,,,, (giggle) However, no matter the origin, it is expressing my thoughts…. Just to let you know, I don’t usually use such nice words…. lol But they are fitting now…. Nobody is going to make Goddess feel bad on our watch!

    And you are right, I don’t demand, I just pray for more… (giggle) Hope Goddess will excuse my enthusiasm, loving it…

    Always good to hear from you,
    xoxoxoxo

      • falalalynx says:

        Oh I get that part I just wonder why they get the credit. evil grin Do they cuss more than the rest of the world? lol

    • falalalynx says:

      Junie,

      Language barrier? What language barrier? You come through loud and clear to me. Now me sometimes I wonder who typed what it says I did. I go back and reread myself and find sooooo many errors. I blame it on my passionate responses. lol Yeah that sounds good, my passion. lol
      Good morning to you.

      Peace, Falala

      • Junebride says:

        Thank you, Falala. I’ve told you before, love your comments. Keep them coming. You are so refreshing and caring.

        It’s actually almost 2 am here, so, good morning to you, too.
        xoxoxoxoxo

    I’m so sorry honey! Haters back off! Trolls go away! I wish you could block people from reading the story if they’re so abusive to you about the damn accent!! Im American, born raised in Pacific Northwest. There are a lot of people in US with different accents, almost every state by their idioms and colloquiums. Your aussie accent sounds like Steve Irwin and my Uncle from Australia. My uncle sometimes lays it on even thicker depending on his mood or if he’s talking with siblings.

    Love you my bronze goddess!! Tell those whiny haters to just back off! I know they’re not all hate – but stop bombarding the woman already!

    • I can actually block people from commenting, but I have to figure out how to do it because I haven’t done it in so long. Also, I don’t want to just say, “Oh, they said something bad. I’m going to block them!” But I will block repeat offenders.

  40. JoAnn says:

    You go girl. Tell those haters to go to HELL!!! No shit not all people from Australia talk like that however SOME do and Jaxon happens to be that one. Love the read keep doing what you’re doing and FUCK those people!

  41. VRBMariposa says:

    too funny… SMH

  42. Cabtaken says:

    Well I will comment. I normally do not after your stories. Not because I don’t like them, which I truly love them. Not because I don’t have something to say… I just have the mind that we all have our opinions, and I most of the time feel it is just that, my opinion.
    So since you asked for backup… That is what I would like to do, say that the story has been not only fun but also easy to ready and understand. I am reading with the dialect in my head, and it makes the story better! I am reading a book now that has a lot off Irish dialect and there are words I do not understand, but with out the writer not writing the way she did, you would not know the characters were speaking. It is part of the story!! My word Lynn, please for the love of all that is Holy, just ignore those people! You have to write for you first, then for your true readers!
    Luv ya,
    Charlette
