TBAA writing Survey!
Hi! Here is a cool TBAA writing survey I created! i hope everyone has fun with it!


TBAA Writing Survey:

Your First Name or Penname: Lauren

MSN Messenger SN: littleangeldreams@hotmail.com

How long have you been writing TBAA fanfiction?

I’ve been writing TBAA fanfiction for over two years now.

How long have you've been reading TBAA fanfiction?

For about two years now, maybe three.

What are your favorite TBAA stories to read?

I LOVE stories where Gloria plays an active role and ones where Monica is either workin’ with the wee ones or supervising Gloria on an assignment.

What is your favorite genre to write for TBAA?

I LOVE writing realistic stories. Ones that have issues everyone can relate to.

Which TBAA chars do you like writing for and why?

I LOVE writing for Gloria and Monica the most. The reason is, I have a lot in common with them both personality wise. I also find Monica/Gloria’s relationship
as supervisor and case worker easy to write.

What do you like most about writing for the chars you chose above?

I LOVE writing for both the Irish angel and the youngest because it’s fun! Gloria is always learning new things and Monica loves teachin’ her. Also, some
of the assignments they have are fun to write as well. IE if they need to learn a particular sport or skill to get close to their assignments.

The other reason I LOVE writing for TBAA so much is because it tells the truth and gives people hope when they need it most.

Which chars or aspects of plot do you have trouble writing?

Tess/Gloria’s relationship. I know Tess loves the youngest angel, but I have trouble showing that love in my stories. This is probably because Gloria is closer to Monica and Tess doesn’t have much patience for her ‘little angel most of the time.

Who is the easiest char to write for in your opinion and why?

Gloria and Monica. Their relationship as supervisor and case worker is so easy to write.

Who is the hardest char or chars to write in your opinion and why?

Andrew and Adam. I’m working on writing Andrew in more of my TBAA stories where he fits, but I don’t like Adam at all. I never liked Adam from the beginning. But after he treated Gloria none too nicely in “The Root of All Evil” my dislike for Adam grew ten fold. I prefer to write Rafael if I include a male angel at all. This is because Rafael is my favorite male angel!

What are your strengths when writing TBAA fanfics?

The revelation scenes. Especially for Monica and Gloria. The reason their revelations come so easily for me is because show-wise, Monica and Gloria’s revelations helped me a great deal in my own life. Monica affirmed God’s love for me and one of Gloria’s revelations practically saved my life.

What are your fave scenes to write?

My favorite scenes to write are dramatic and emotional ones. I get the most pleasure when I read through a particular scene and I can see it play out in my mind like an episode.

What are your weaknesses when writing fan fiction?

My weaknesses are sticking to the assignments and not making the angels the center focus of the story.

How do you get over writer’s block when it comes to play?

I listen to my favorite songs, which are generally Adventures in Wonderland and Disney ones. Once I Listen to my favorite songs, my ideas just flow out. The song that helps me the most is Mae Whitman’s song “I Heard the Bells”.

Do you like reading and writing fanfiction with original chars or without?

I LOVE writing and reading stories with original characters in them. I think it makes the stories more interesting and it also lets the writer show her/his personality a lot more.

Do you write for other fandoms besides TBAA?

Oh yes. I try to write for a new fandom every once in awhile. If I read a story that I like from a new fandom, I’ll try and write a story for it if I can. I enjoy a new challenge every once in a while.

Do you read other fanfic besides the ones for TBAA?

Definitely! I try and read fanfics from a variety of fandoms to broaden my horizons a wee bit more.

Do you have certain things you don’t like reading in TBAA stories?

I can’t stand stories with Adam in them or stories where Andrew plays a big role. I also don’t like stories where Monica and Gloria aren’t in character. IE Monica being too stern with Gloria or Gloria not working well with kids.

Are reviews important to you when posting a story for others to read?

I enjoy getting reviews, but I don’t write solely for that purpose. I think that reviews are important, but at the same time, they shouldn’t be the main reason you write. While reviews give readers a way of helping writers perfect their talent, they shouldn’t be the reason you write.

How do you handle constructive criticism?

If it’s good constructive critics, I take it in stride and try to use it to make my writing better. If it’s bad, I ignore it and let it go.

When writing TBAA stories, do you put your audience wishes before your own?

I try to, but I also try to be true to myself. That is the one lesson I’ve learned. And it’s helped me in writing as well as other aspects of my life.

What subject is too serious for you to write?

Nasai, nothing. I write family oriented stories that deal with everything from abandonment, abuse, rape, and neglect. I believe that these issues wont’ be dealt with properly unless people know about them.

Are there any TBAA fanfics of yours that people absolutely loved?

The TBAA fanfics that I Think people liked the most would have to be “Kassie’s Prayer,” “Father’s Day,” “A Ride of Faith” and “The Importance of Dreaming.”

What do you like most about writing TBAA stories?

I love that we can help people through our writing. Even if we don’t know it, our stories, original and fanfic can touch people in ways we never imagined. I know. It’s happened to me many atime. Nothing pleases me more than when I’ve inspired someone or made their day better with a story I wrote.

Do you have a website?

Aye. My penname on fanfiction.net is LittleGloriaFaith. I also have an account over at fictionpress.com as well. My penname over there is RoseNicoleHopeElisabeth.

Favorite angel or angels?: Gloria, Monica, Tess and Rafael.

Least favorite angels?: Adam and Andrew.

Did you have fun taking this survey?

Definitely! I created it, but it was fun to take all the same!

Who? God
What? He loves you.
Where? Everywhere.
When? Always, forever, without ceasing.
How? Unconditionally, totally and completely.
Why? Because you are His child.

How Monica touched my life
"Venice" is one of my favorite TBAA episodes and a very special one at that.

In “Venice,” Monica is assigned to Annie Doyle. Annie is a bitter elderly woman who is slowly going blind. Annie denies her vision problem and remains bitter towards Monica until the Irish angel reveals her reason for wanting to assist her.
It’s not until Annie is completely blind, does she see things for the first time.


I LOVE this episode because I could relate to Annie. While I have a positive attitude and outlook when it comes to my own visual impairment, there may come a day when I wake up completely blind as well. But unlike Annie, I’m a friendly and easy going person most of the time.


But even though that prospect scares me, it also comforts me. The reason is, the day it happens if it happens, I will truly be able to see the world in all the beauty God created it to be. I’ll see it with my heart, just like I have for most of my life. But only it will be ten times more beautiful.


Monica’s revelation touched me beyond words in that episode. It touched me so much, I started crying.
When Monica reveals herself to Annie, she tells her she, Monica, had God’s plan all wrong. Monica tells Annie that God didn’t send Monica there because Annie’s eye sight was dying. He sent the Irish angel there because the sight in her heart was dying.
When Monica got to that part of her revelation, I started crying and I said it along with her. I felt this overwhelming sense of joy and gratefulness towards Roma, who plays Monica. She really touched my heart through Monica’s words.


How about the rest of you? Do you have a story of how a particular TBAA episode or a particular angel touched your life?

Who? God
What? He loves you
Where? Everywhere
When? Always, forever, without ceasing.
How? Unconditionally, totally and completely.
Why? Because you are His child.

How Valerie Helped me as Gloria
Hi everyone! Lauren here. I hope everyone is doing well. I just wanted to share the story of how Valerie helped me as the angel, Gloria, on TBAA. I hope everyone who reads this true story will find inspiration through it.


You never know how God will answer prayers. That is one of the things that is so awesome about our Heavenly Father. He knows what we need and He will give it to us when we need it most.

This true story is an example of just how awesome His timing is.

The day I saw "Two Sides to Every Angel" for the first time and taped it, my Dad had gone off on me verbally. For what i don't know. It was probably for not having a job or something along those lines or for not being perfect. The usual things some parents with disabled kids rant and rave about.

Anyway, he had really said some hurtful things to me. I went up to my room, closed the door and burst into tears. I turned on the TV and rewound the tape I had taped TBAA on that day. I turned it on and started watching it.

I laughed a wee bit at some of the jokes Gloria made about Tess's car, but for the most part I sat there and balled. But it was nothing compared to how hard i was crying at the end of the episode.

When Gloria said, "God is here. And He loves us, in spite of all the mistakes and He has a plan for us all." I started crying all over again.

I then knelt on my knees and thanked God over and over again. I then prayed for Him to make it possible for me to thank Valerie for what she did. I then wrote Val that letter.

I was feeling so dejected and worthless before Gloria's revelation, I didn’t' know what to do. I felt like my Dad had slapped me, but he hadn't, don't worry.

But words can sting more than a slap across the face ever could. Believe me, I know. I've been on the receiving end of those words many times before.

When my Dad had gone off on me that day, he made me feel like all those hurtful things my mother said to me were true. "You're worthless, you're a mistake. I wish you had never been born." That was what my mother said to me most of the time.

Anyway, when I heard Gloria say, "God loves us, in spite of all the mistakes. And He has a plan for us all." It was like God had sent me an angel who lifted me up and carried me into a new day. And for the first time, I saw myself not through my earthly father's eyes, but through my Heavenly Father's eyes. And it was all thanks to God working through Valerie as Gloria. I will never forget that day or the way God worked through Valerie to confirm His love for me.

And from that day on, I never forgot those words of truth. Now, whenever I need a spirit booster or I find myself questioning God's purpose for me, I remember Gloria's words and they give me the confidence and strengthen my faith to face a new day.

And that is why I will always think of Valerie as an angel. The angel who confirmed God’s love for me when I needed it the most. I will always be grateful to Val for what she did for me as Gloria.

This experience has even inspired me to write a song which I am dedicating to Valerie. The song is called “On an Angel’s Wings.” I’m trying my best to get it composed. When I do, I hope Val will listen to it because it expresses the peace, comfort and clarity her words brought me when I needed them the most.

Who? God
What? He loves you
Where? Everywhere
When? Always, forever, without ceasing.
How? Unconditionally, totally and completely.
Why? Because you are His child.

My name is Linda, and I live in Norway, but was born in Canada. I have a cute little dog, his name is Buffy. I haven't got many friends, but I've got a huge family.

I love animals, but I'm mostly with cats and dogs. I cannot be with horses because I'm extremly allergic. So that's a drag! Luckily I have my dog and his best friend who's a cat. They are so cute together!! 

I'm a huge Touched By An Angel fan! My favorite angel is Monica! She has such a peaceful voice and I love the way she comforts me, even when I'm happy. I have many favorite episodes, and I will have more when I see them all!
I've also started watching Xena. And that is a good show aswell! I haven't seen that many episodes yet, but I do like the show!
I also like 7th Heaven and my fave episodes there are: Nothing Endures But Change, Time To Leave The Nest, Johnny get Your Gun, I really do, I really did, the known soldier, Gabrielle come blow your horn, I Love Lucy, We Do, Angel, Paper Or Plastic, Red Socks, Secrets, Goodbye, And Thank You.

Gloria's Revelation
This entry refers to the way Valerie helped me as the angel, Gloria on TBAA. I don’t think I ever talked about what happened in this journal before. So here it goes.

The day I saw "Two Sides to Every Angel" for the first time and taped it, my Dad had gone off on me verbally. For what i don't know. It was probably for not having a job or something along those lines or for not being perfect. The usual things some parents with disabled kids rant and rave about.

I laughed a wee bit at some of the jokes Gloria made about Tess's car, but for the most part I sat there and balled. But it was nothing compared to how hard i was crying at the end of the episode.

When Gloria said, "God is here. And He loves us, inspite of all the mistakes and He has a plan for us all." I started crying all over again.

I then knelt on my knees and thanked God over and over again. I then prayed for Him to make it possible for me to thank Valerie for what she did. I then wrote Val that letter.

I was feeling so dejected and worthless before Gloria's revelation, I didnt' know what to do. I felt like my Dad had slapped me, but he hadn't, don't worry.

But words can sting more than a slap across the face ever could. Believe me, I know. I've been on the receiving end of those words many times before.

And from that day on, I never forgot those words of truth. Now, whenever I need a spirit booster or I find myself questioning God's purpose for me, I remember Gloria's words and they give me the confidence and strengthen my faith to face a new day.

and that is why I will always think of Valerie as an angel. The angel who confirmed God’s love for me when I needed it the most. I will always be grateful to Val for what she did for me as Gloria.

My TBAA Introduction
Hi! Lauren here. I hope everyone is doing well. I just wanted to share a wee bit about myself and who my favorite angels and episodes are! I encourage everyone who joins to write a wee introduction as well. That way everyone can get to know you!


I LOVE-ABSOLUTELY LOVE-Touched by an Angel! My favorite angels are Gloria, Monica, Tess and Rafael. I have a lot in common personality wise with Gloria, but I also share Monica’s love of children and her love for mocha lattés! GOL! GOL means giggles out loud. I made that one up myself.

My Favorite episodes are: Kassie’s Choice, The Pact, Venice, Netherlands, For All the Tea in China, Operation: Smile, Tough Love, The Last Chapter, Two Sides to Every Angel, Psalm 151, At the End of the Aisle, A Feather on the Breath of God, Fighting the Good Fight, The Word, Hello, I Love You, The Blue Angel, An Angel by any other Name, Great Expectations, Life Before Death, Dear God, Voice of an Angel, A Delicate Balance, Full Moon, Song for My Father, The Root of All Evil, A Joyful Noise, A Time for Every Purpose, As it is in Heaven, The Last Dance, Elijah, God and Country, The Birthday Present, Heaven’s Portal, Ship in a Bottle, Holy of Holies, Godspeed, The Word, For Such a Time as This, Black Like Monica and a lot of others.

I’m a friendly and easy going person. I LOVE making friends who share the same interests as me. I’m also visually impaired and have been that way ever since I was born. The problem didn’t’ start affecting me until I was five years old. I was born two pounds, two ounces and as a result, I developed ROP. But the way I look at it is, I have ROP, it doesn’t have me. I still do every day things, I just do some of those things differently. I see with my heart and that’s the best source of sight God could have given me.

I LOVE writing stories, both original and fanfiction and I also have written six original books and have one published.
I hope everyone has fun in this community!
God loves you!
