New month, new year, new round of features of stories by GA's Classic Authors from years gone by! So many loved stories from the past are missed by current readers, so we like to feature the great stories by promoted authors so they don't fade into obscurity. Now this month's story... well, it may be one of THE classicest of classic stories on GA, lol, and is still loved by many.

TBH, I feel like every single one of you will come for me right now, and I will be slapped over and over again with things I should not have done, things I should have done, I am terrified.
But at this moment, I'm sad and I know that what I have been doing cannot last. Have I drank again? Well, one wonders. Sometimes, life is hard.
This is one moment when I need help. I'm not going to say this in any other way than yes, I need your help. I'm supposed to do this, but I can't do i
Well the Great White North is living up to it's name this week. Snow hurricanes in St John's, and in Atlantic Canada. Huge amounts of snow have fallen in central parts and the the Prairies have been gripped all week in -40 weather. Even the nice green lower mainland of BC is covered in snow and the travel is not recommended. Still, Australia is burning in some areas and other areas next door are flooding.
Okay, the localized weather forecast is completed and I really should get to wrapping
Mia - a bomb has dropped into my life and the pieces are everywhere. i have not heard or spoken to someone very special to me. i last spoke to this person in the rehab center last Friday.he had knee surgery and we made plans for Sunday which was our normal day. Then my world changed went to the rehab Center and no friend / lover no word no message. Damn rules that won’t help me I’m not family. Went out to car and fell apart wondering what happen. Made a few phone calls and again that blasted bri
SP and I have had several conversations, and a couple have circled back to becoming partners but maintaining our individuality. Just ran across this quote from Kahil Gibran from The Prophet [if you've never read this, do so]:
The Shadows were the real heroes of B5. They didn't play games with the younger races like showing up looking like angels, turning them into telepaths or twisting them with decadent introspective philosophy like the filthy Vorlons with their disgusting fetish for religious fanatics. The Shadows asked what do you want but, they didn't protect them from the consequences of their lusts for power.
Evolution is driven by conflict. Growth through pain.
The Shadows were intellectually honest
Is it me, or is this month just flying by? Here we are at another Friday and hopefully things go well. I do apologize. Last week was a mess of mistakes. Seems I mis-numbered the prompts and then I didn't post them in the prompt thread. Not one of my best moments. However, all that has been corrected and I have new temptations for your consideration.
Prompt 808 - Creative
Tag - Partners

What the heck is going on with this story?! It's 200 thousand words in twelve chapters.
It is experimental: a sort of limited stream of consciousness novel that could easily grow to a million or more words.
I have a cast of characters that takes up a database. I'm having fun with it and I have a purpose for it.
I'm working on the craft, work process and self editing, so I can get out more material quicker. There's no better way to do it than jump in the deep water.
So, with the new year, I like to see what features I can add. This year, I decided it would be great to try and feature our Signature authors once a month (when possible). So, to get this feature started, let's take a look at some stories by @Cole Matthews! I'll be picking three stories to share from each of our signature authors, and it would be great if the members would weigh in with what their favorite story is from that month's author! I'll only be sharing complete stories, so if it's a st
It's a new year and will be another great year to take a look at some stories that you might have missed. But, before we start the new reviews, we wanted to take today to take a glance back at all the reviews that were done in 2019! Thank you to @Timothy M. for compiling the list!
January 14th: 2014-2018 Reviews Revisited
February 11th: Holding Back by Thorn Wilde - Puppilull
Review comment: It was probably more fun to see the Deadpool movies after I read Holding Back.
How do you tell someone who can't see themselves, they are worthy … of love … of life?
I see the dark circles under your beautiful brown eyes
And I wonder how I can fix it …
Fix all the wrongs done to you in your life
How can I take that pain from then and now?
You do not see your own strength within you
Life dealt you a bad hand
You lived through pain, and horrors I cannot imagine
I can only promise to be with you
To hold you
I think the issue I really have with hands-free orgasms stems from all the romance novels I read when I was a teen. It was really common for the heroine to be unable to experience a non-clitoral orgasm (or to experience an orgasm period) until Mr. Right makes love to her, ya know, cause how else are you gonna know he's Mr. Right? The case could be made that this promotes an unrealistic expectation about sex within a romantic relationship. I started seeing parallels with hands-free orgasms in ga
Like so much else I've written before, this has morphed into something different. The premise is something I still like, but the plot I envision is very different. I've been toying with this off and on for years now, and when I thought I had it right, I sent it to a beta reader who basically said, um no. You need to rework this with someone else as the main love interest. SO it's back to the to be written folder and we'll see where it goes.
Thanks for the comment and for reading.
I mean, hands-free orgasm is a real thing, but it has less to do with your lover's skill than with, well, physiology. Some can, some can't.
Either way, I do think this version was an improvement. You're doing a great job reworking this.
