So... I guess it's about time I actually write a bio!

Hm, how to start? Well, my name is Tess, and I'm from the wonderful state of Oregon! Right now, though, I live in Taiwan, because my brother got this thing where he had to work abroad for a few years. And yes, our family is Asian! After my bro told me and our parents, Mom and Dad, both Taiwanese immigrants, decided to just move our whole family back home (me, my parents, my brother, and my lil sister). Of course I miss life as an American kid (whew those times were actually quite... TOUGH!), but I'm really loving life right now as a bilingual teenager. It's been maybe 2 years, and I got used to living here almost immediately! Everyone's been so amazing to me, from my classmates to my teachers to the lady downstairs who sells breakfast to me every morning.

I actually got into loving MJ from my brother, whose name is Thomas. Thanks so much, Tommy! He doesn't live with us anymore, but when he did, ever since I was little, he would play Michael Jackson's music on our CD player. And he also played a lot of other things I love, like a ton of Motown stuff, which is currently my ADDICTION. Haha! He played a lot of Queen as well, and the Beatles, Pink Floyd... all sorts of stuff. It was really, really diverse. All of that was pretty old by the time I was born, but Thomas always said to "keep music alive", and it's not that we don't like the music of today (I ADORE Alicia Keys and Sara Bareilles), but we're like historians. We like to keep all of that history alive, and that means we liisten to classical music too! He taught me how to play piano (and then our parents made me take lessons just like him... hahaha it's horrible), violin, and guitar. Thomas is my everything, and I'd just like to add that bit here (though I really hope he doesn't discover this... hahaha he'll think it's hilarious). 

Thanks for reading my weird bio!! Hahahah.

We begin winter 1996...

Penyi was eleven, and Michael Jackson, a man she'd only ever heard of through the radio, showed up at the orphanage. Neither of them knew that a girl's life would be completely changed that winter. For a girl who was told that she would never get anywhere, being the King of Pop's daughter was more than she could ever imagine. It didn't even matter who he was sometimes. The fact that she had a family that loved her in a way she never knew was more than enough.

**Previously known as A Borrowed Angel's Story, mostly because I didn't have a good title in mind at the time I published this story. Still, I'm not satisfied, so if anyone has any suggestions......

Makin' It by Tessaflora Rated: T starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1]

Love and Rock 'n' Roll was the most successful film of 1988, but for all the wrong reasons. It had awful casting, the plot was stereotypical and predictable, and the wardrobe… don’t even get me started on the wardrobe! Heck, even the title of the movie was unappetizing. Perhaps the reason it was so well received was that everyone longed for the kind of romance that Sonia and Beck, the title’s protagonists, had. But what had caught Michael Jackson’s eye (or rather, ear) was not the sappy love story, but the completely fresh film score, filled with danceable tunes as well as music evoking emotions of all sorts. Of course he loved a good happily ever after, but the music was really the only part that made the movie just a bit more bearable.

Michael made it his mission to track down the composers, producers, and everyone else involved with the film’s scoring. He could tell just by listening that every track was made with love and a true passion. They were the kind of people he wanted badly to work with, especially as he began working on his upcoming record. But he had no idea that there was only one mastermind behind it all.

A beautiful one at that.

Ever wonder what would happen if Michael Jackson did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? ;)
