Thanks so much for the support, it truly does mean a lot to me. Shaundi's Side is still a very large part of my day to day life, be it ideas or what, but that doesn't always get turned into progress. I am still working, though, and I just hope that when the next chapter does come up, you all will enjoy it. 

Thanks again for the patience and the support, it means the world.

Hey all, I'm so sorry for the lack of updates these past few months... I've been in a bit of a jam both creatively and in my personal life. I've done some serious thinking, and I've come to a conclusion... it's bittersweet, but I believe that I'm doing the right thing. 

As of now, I'm not going to be working on the Saints Row 3 or 4 story arc, and I will no longer be posting here on SR.com. However... I don't intend to stop writing. Saints Row 2 is my favorite out of the series, by a landslide. It's got both fun gameplay and a kick ass story, it keeps me entertained and enthralled for days on end, and I love it to pieces. 

That being said, there's another reason for my stopping. I began this project as a very, very, very inexperienced author. "Convenient" situations that just happen to make everything fall in place, crappy writing quality, inaccurate emotions—you name it, I've made that mistake in this story. The beginning chapters are lacking, and that saddens me, because that's the most important part. You see Shaundi start to turn into the woman she becomes in the later games, you see her fall in love, you watch this relationship build and grow, and the writing quality, as well as my inexperience, takes away from that strong foundation that this story needed.


With that said... this is what i've decided. I'm going to restart Shaundi's Side from the ground up. I'm going to make a few changes, overall make it a better story, and post it on my FanFiction.net account.

Thanks again for all your support through this journey, without my readers and all of your feedback, this story would have died long, long ago. I take pride in this story and it's humble beginnings on this website, it's something that I will never forget.

P.S: Hope to see you on FF.net! My pen name over there is Amaris123

Hi guys, this is my contribution to the stillwater stories section. XD This is saints row 2 through Shaundi's point of view, I hope you enjoy it, and constructive criticism is very greatly appreciated. :D 


IMPORTANT: DO NOT copy, paste, print, or reproduce in ANY way. Please, and thank you. :D 
______________________________________________________________________________________________



                                                                                       Welcome to the third street saints

 

Shaundi always loved Stillwater, it was the perfect city. If you where a stoner anyways. Shaundi had been in Stillwater correctional many a time, but all for drug possession. On her latest trip, she met a local celebrity,  Johnny Gat. She saw him sitting there in the mess hall, and couldn’t miss the opportunity to talk to him. Shaundi sat across from him, he was eating quietly, eyes down to the table. “you got a problem?” He said quietly, looking up at Shaundi. The look he gave her scared the living **** out of Shaundi, but she merely swallowed, and said, “No man, I just wanted to say Hey.   You’re like a celebrity here in Stillwater.” Gat looked back at her, not saying anything. “I’m Shaundi, if you and the leader of the saints ever break otta here, call me, I want in on the action.” At this, Gat chuckled. “She’s been comatose for five years, I don’t  see her waking up any time soon, but I’ll give you a call.” “She’ll wake up, and you two have got to take the city back.” Shaundi got up from the table, and went back to her friends. 

 

That was about a month before Shaundi was released early, as she screwed the warden. She wasn’t afraid of using her body and charm to get what she wanted, her parents had demanded that she get her tubes tied at 16, since she had pretty much ****ed her way through High school. She had learned some though, so she wasn’t a total idiot.  When Shaundi was released, Veteran Child was there. As she walked out he beamed. “Hey Shaundi! How’s it hangin baby?” Shaundi sighed. “It’s over VC, stop stalking me at every last given moment. She said strongly as she strode down the stairs, past VC’s van, towards the gates so she could go to the docks and get a ride back to Stillwater. “I’m nuts for ya baby! Come back with me!” Shaundi was tired of this fool’s ****. “I’ve got my own place, and I told you, we’re FINISHED!” Shaundi kept walking, flipping some of her dreads out of her way as she went. 

 

 

After she had gotten home, she called her ex, Mike, and got some dope. She hung out at a frat party later that night, and kicked everyone’s ass at beer Bong. She was a legend among the frats, for more than one reason. Not only could she drink like a Russian man on a Sunday night, she was the best sex monkey in all of Stillwater. The nickname ‘Sex Monkey” Came from her friend Denise a few years back, Shaundi got it on with three guys in a hot tub at a party, and Denise saw the whole thing. Afterwards, she had Shaundi’s clothes and she said, “You may be needing these, you ****in’ sex monkey, cover that thing up before another guy comes and sticks his **** in it.” Aah, good times. Denise got killed in a drug deal a year ago, she went to some samedi dealer, but he was out of dust, so he told her to come back later, she wouldn’t hear it, and she called him something nasty, and he shot her on the spot. Crazy **** too, they call him sunshine.  

 

Anyways, not a week after Shaundi had been released, she saw the headlines of the newspaper, it read, “Coma patient wakes up, kills way to freedom” YES! The saints leader had woken up! Gat would be calling her anytime now, so she toned down her party schedule to allow for gat to contact her. Sure enough, before the week was out, she got a call from Gat saying that the leader of the saints was headed her way to recruit Shaundi. Shaundi was excited, she hadn’t rolled with any gangs before, and she had always wanted to. She thought the idea of it was just badass, the power behind it.  Shaundi saw a car pull up, and a woman with shoulder length brown hair got out. She wore dark eye shadow, and her lips where flaming red. She donned a black and Purple camisole, and a pair of dark washed straight leg jeans. To top it all off, she wore a pair of black pumps. The lady had class, and style. 

 

She approached Shaundi, and she said, “Hey, you Shaundi?” Shaundi nodded, “Yep, that’s me. Show me what you can do in that thing.” she said, motioning to Shaundi’s car. “I need to know you can handle your self behind the wheel before I’ll roll with you guys.” The leader of the saints nodded, and got behind the driver’s seat. Shaundi got in next to her, and pointed her in the direction she’d need to go. Shaundi wanted her to do a few jumps, she loved a girl who could handle a car well. She nailed every jump, it was like being on a roller coaster. 

 

After boss had nailed the last jump, Shaundi said, “Yeah, I’d love to roll with the saints, just tell me where you guys hang and I’ll be there.” “Thanks, we can use all the help we can get if we’re gonna take back this city.” After boss had dropped Shaundi’s car off, at Shaundi’s place, she had given Shaundi directions to the saints crib. It was the old mission house, which was at the heart of Stillwater. Old religious buildings seemed a little, “Been there done that.” for the saints, but Shaundi didn’t argue. She headed there immediately, and sat outside in her car listening to music till boss arrived. After she had listened to Misery Business by Paramore, a black SUV pulled up. The vibrations from his music thudded in Shaundi’s chest, and right after that, another car pulled up next to Shaundi. In this car, Boss and a small Hispanic kid got out. Shaundi exited, and nodded to the boss. “Glad you could make it Shaundi.” Shaundi smiled, “Wouldn’t have missed it for anything.” The small kid held out his hand, and said with a bit of an accent, “Hi, I’m Carlos.” Shaundi smiled, his accent was cute. “Shaundi.” She said as she shook his hand. Carlos couldn’t have even been of legal drinking age yet, he wore a purple beanie and a wife beater, with sweatpants and tennis shoes. He had several religious tattoos, and a thick gold chain with a cross on it. 

 

Behind her, a large black man walked up, “yo I’m pierce, you must be Shaundi.” Shaundi smiled at Pierce, and shook his hand. “Sup?” Just as pierce smiled and opened his mouth to speak, boss cleared her throat and said, “I’m glad we all know each other now, can we get under a ****in’ roof before we get shot?” They all nodded, and boss shouldered open a glass door to the mission house. Inside was a wreck, old bibles and papers where strewn across the floor. “Is this it?” Shaundi asked, looking around, truly under whelmed. Boss chuckled, which sent a chill down Shaundi’s spine. The bitch was fine, strong, and there was a look in her eye that seemed to make you want to follow her to hell and back. “No, there was an earthquake a few decades back, it sent a block or so of the city below sea level, and rather than clearing everything out, the city just built over it. There’s a hotel that we’re using down there. Shaundi was now impressed. 

 

She followed boss on her left flank, Carlos next to Shaundi, and Pierce headed up the rear. They descended several flights of stairs, into what Shaundi guessed was the upper section of the hotel. The air was musty, but it seemed sorta homey. They followed boss around a corner, to a balcony, from here, their was another staircase leading down to the main area, which had tons of people in it. It sounded like a riot, and she saw a familiar face beating one of the other men in the room. Sport maybe? Was this a gang ritual or something? 

 

He looked up at boss,  who said, “What the hell is going on?“ and Gat retorted, “I had to do some canonizing… hold up, you, you’re next.” He said, pointing at a guy standing in the room. “Wait, what?” He said in a scared tone as a man next to him punched him in the face. The whole room swarmed around them. Oh well, Shaundi was gonna be a lieutenant, none of this canonizing ****. “Where’d you find these guys?” Boss asked Gat, walking off to a not too crowded area by the base of the stairwell. “Like I said, I made some calls.” Carlos looked over-whelmed, and said, “You guys actually hang out down here?” Shaundi looked around. “I dunno, add a flat screen, some throw pillows and a hookah and this place would be all right.” Pierce chimed in, and said, “We definitely need a stripper pole in this bitch.” Carlos and boss both said, “Definitely.” at the same time. Shaundi looked at boss, then at Gat, Boss began trotting up to the top of the landing in front of a broken down statue of an angel. “What do we do now?” Shaundi asked Gat. “We listen.” he said, nodding towards boss. She looked so strong, so powerful up there, like she belonged up there leading an army. 

 

“Aright’ everybody, listen up, we’ve got some serious **** to discus. The saints used to own Stillwater, and the only mutha ****s that seem to remember that is me and Gat. I think it’s time we give those other crews a wake up call.” At this a few members of the crew hooted and hollered,  Shaundi among them, she raised her fist in approval. “Now I ain’t gonna lie, a lot of ****’s changed since I’ve been otta the game, so I’m gonna need some help. Pierce, you’re on the Ronin, I wanna know who’s calling the shots and what businesses they run.” He smiled, “Got it.” Boss turned and looked at Shaundi, she said, “Shaundi, you’ve got the Sons of Samedi.” Oh crap, this isn’t going to be fun, that crazy **** Sunshine, and the fact that Veteran Child used to run with them, this is a bad idea for Shaundi to try and take them down with the saints, so she protested, “It’s gotta be them?” taking a few steps forward. Boss’s demeanor changed, and she looked angry, it scared the **** out of Shaundi. “**** you say?” Boss barked, and Shaundi backed up, holding her hands up in defense, “It’s cool! I… I got this.” 

 

 

 

 

Boss’s body relaxed, and she nodded, a small grin on her face.  

“That was way too ****ing close Shaundi! You‘re working for this chick, you don‘t have the right to ask for a different assignment!” she scolded herself. “Carlos” She began, but Carlos cut her off, “The Brotherhood, I’m on it.” Shaundi looked at Carlos, and thought he was otta his mind. She wanted to say, “Did you just cut the boss off? Not cool!” But instead of getting angry, Boss smiled, and said, “Alright, once we’re done here, talk to one of these guys, they’ll have something for you to do. It’s our time now, let’s get this **** started!”  She yelled, sending a chill down Shaundi’s spine, This woman had so much power, the way she carried herself, her voice, it all screamed authority. Shaundi yelled in approval, and slapped Carlos a High five. Boss started down the stairs, and Shaundi held out her hand for a high five. 

 

“I’m sorry about that boss, I-” Boss took Shaundi’s hand in both of hers, and said, “It’s ok Shaundi, I just needed to teach you the chain of command. I give an order, you follow it to the letter and make sure it gets done, no questions, the last thing we need is a loose cannon. I’d hate to have to kill you.” Boss said with a chuckle, and Shaundi laughed nervously. Would boss actually kill Shaundi? Duh, she had killed over three hundred people before, she’d not hesitate a second before snapping Shaundi’s neck like a toothpick. The rest of the evening, Shaundi mingled with the other crew members and gave orders to a few men. Wow, Shaundi could definitely get used to this whole responsibility and leadership thing.
