Ever, Ever After

Para sa tunay na Kendall at Dru. I’m still your love team’s biggest fan. Make it real πŸ˜€

Ever, Ever After
Written: 2012
Released: 2012

Sa palagay ni Drusilla, may sumpa ang pangalan niya. Dahil pinangalan siya sa ugly stepsister ni Cinderella, malamang walang napipintong happy ever after ang love story niya. Dumagdag na ebidensya na hindi pa siya nagkakanobyo sa edad niyang twenty-six. So what? I-e-enjoy na lang niya ang pagiging single at gagawa ng pagkakaabalahan. Bilang bahagi ng β€˜Operation: Happiness’ niya, nagtungo siya sa Sanctuary Zoo at nag-volunteer doon.

Ngunit nalimutan niya ang sumpa sa sarili na hindi maghahanap ng lalaki nang makilala si Kendall, isang veterinarian. Naisip niyang masarap lang kiligin pero wala siyang expectations.

Single forever na nga siya, di ba? Hindi para sa kanya ang happy ever after….

Trivia:

  • This story has been inspired by a visit to the Manila Zoo. Dr. Kendall was inspired by a pic I took of an unknown animal handler. I actually took the pic because I thought the Mr. Talikodgenic manong looks like Mac from behind.

The pic that inspired Kendall

  • Kendall is based on a guy whose name starts with a D, and Dru is based on a girl whose name starts with a K πŸ˜€
  • After I finished writing Ever, Ever After, I sent an e-mail to my friend, K who is the real Dru, and asked her for visual pegs for both hero and heroine. She gave me Shirota Yuu and Jessica Gomes who actually reminds me of her and her sister in real life πŸ˜€
  • I’ve always wanted to write a story with a heroine named Drusilla. It’s a bit of a challenge to give someone with a name that doesn’t sound fairytale-ish a happily ever after.
  • Doc Kendall is supposed to be the brother of one of my other characters, except they don’t seem to look anything alike. I’d still try to work on it but I’ll let you know if I went on with it. The other manuscript has been finished, submitted and accepted, and the two characters have the same surname, but I didn’t mention Kendall in that book. We’ll see.
  • Obviously, this book’s title came from the song Ever, Ever After by Carrie Underwood from the Enchanted soundtrack.
  • I actually enjoyed writing this book. It was so simple and… well, light. After a whole 12-book series where I had to plan terrorist attacks and rescues, writing something this simple was fun and relaxing. I’d definitely write for MSV Lite again.

    I don’t know if I ever told you that the college ex named his turtle after Amorsolo because we wanted a Pinoy version of the TMNT? And then the next one was Luna. Jef & I also did doodles on these turtles, but I dunno where they went. πŸ˜› The doodles, not the turtles. As far as I know they’re still alive and well.

  14. Elise says:

    Yeah, you did hehe Got the idea from you, actually πŸ˜€ pinaalam ko pa nga kung puwede ko gamitin ‘yong concept hehe

    Miss you! So much. I’ll see you soon, okay?
