I have been active in writing online since 2000 - so in internet years, I'm dead. I'd like to think my writing has gotten better over time, but I still have the occasional stinker. Feedback is always welcome. Find me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dabeagles.doghouse
Drew lives a strange life with his mother who abuses him, his neighbors who act more like a family than his mother - the complications of being different from the average by being gay seems silly to add on. He plans to study hard and get away, but then something unexpected happens with his neighbor Teo. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? Maybe both?
Ethan has a plan. No dating, nose down and get good grades so he can go to college on a scholarship and get away from his drugged zombie mother, criminal father and what's left of his siblings. He's going to drag his best friend Mason along with him because someone has to look out for the moron. The best laid plans are broken up by his greedy father, and someone who cares enough to defend Ethan.

Celebrating the 4th of July, I have posted the first of a four story set featuring Asher Romanski from the series Sanitaria Springs. Asher is a poor kid who has resigned himself to taking his lumps and keeping out of harm's way. But then an event makes him dare to dream.
Set in Cynus's 'Weightless' and 'Fearless' universe, Shane Blankenship unexpectedly finds himself interacting with one of the guys on his List - like, guys he'd date sort of list. Parker is a bit enigmatic and Shane tries to balance a weird home life with his new friendship and the complications that arise.
This story, set in the Sanitaria Springs universe, follows Dylan Whalen who was introduced in the short story 'Curious Nate'. Some of his history may be pertinent to a complete understanding of this story, but it isn't required.
