  6. Nigel should have kids that are within the right age range, right?
  7. There's a trending YouTube video that parodies 1917 against the 2020 backdrop of Los Angeles. I wish Blue was still here. He would have loved this.
  8. Okay, I am so excited about the new story, " Gap Year " and it has just started. I have already read the prologue and the first chapter twice each. I am getting a different vibe from this already. I can't decide if the writing style is slightly different or what, but it just feels very fresh; not that any of Mark's stories aren't fabulous but this was has just grabbed me so hard already. Will is not even my favorite character, barely makes my top eight, but I am so excited to see how he handles the challenge of a gap year, and not just the drama already rearing it's head in the first chapter. Is it just me on the vibe, am I just too excited about a new addition to the CAP series? Everyone, let's discuss...
  9. Thank you so much for pointing that out. Got them fixed (I hope).
  10. And chapters 86 and 87 are the same text
  11. Can you check chapters 83 and 84? It looks like there’s a chapter missing between them.
  12. Most of you are musing "who wouldn't want a young Australian?" Well I need his brain, not his body. The next CAP story has some chapters set in Sydney and environs in 2004. I'm looking for someone who can help out this Seppo with his pathetic attempts at Aussie dialog. Basically all I need that person to do is read the chapters and offer suggestions as to how a real Australian 20-something would have spoken (in 2004). If you've got the time and inclination, PM me, post here, or email me at markarbour2000@yahoo.com.
  13. I think that open sexual relationships can work for some people. For others, it's a deal killer. Later in the CAP Series, we see Stefan and JP doing fine with an open relationship, but we also see it tear Brad and Robbie apart.
  14. It may be ancient but I've just finished CAP Series 1. A thoroughly engrossing story with a satisfying ending. I loved the way the treads wound their way through the tale with highs and lows that reflected such emotional reality. Lengthy as it was, I just couldn't put it down. I have just a couple of comments. First, I have an aversion being defined as 'Queer'. I grew up in the 1950s and 'queer' was an insult usually delivered with a sneer. I know young gays seem proud to be called queer and I just don't understand this; but, there again, what do I know. Second has to do with sex. At first I was horrified to read about JP jumping in and out of bed with such ease. But you see I was raised as a catholic and grew up feeling guilty about sex. I got married and sex was a duty and never enjoyable. Yes, I whored around but always felt guilty with a sense of wrong doing. Even masturbation was a necessity and never just enjoying my own body. Then along comes Mark (JP) and suddenly I realized that sex is not something that's naughty but simply an enjoyment of our own bodies. Too late I realize I've missed out on a vital aspect of the joy of living. As to open sexual relationships, I'm still wary. Doesn't having multiple sex partners eventually destroy a loving relationship. Now before I get accused of being ancient I have to say I've never tried open relationships so I can't comment factually.
  15. Epilogue 10. -When Jake proposes to Brad. "Just One Look" by Linda Ronstadt.
  16. Epilogue 8 - When JJ and Carullo close out this chapter by deciding to be okay with each other's weirdness.
  17. Some of you may have noticed a lot of editing activity in "Paternity," and that must seem odd to you since the story posted in 2012-13. I went back and made some minor edits and also put in the standard leader lines for each segment, noting who was narrating, the date, and the place where the action begins. With those in place, I made the font and color uniform. If you are reading this story and find any errors, be sure to let me know with a comment.
  18. I guess Carullo makes it number 5 for JJ. Aww. He's so chaste for this series. Lol.
  19. The next person Will has sex with, will be no 50 (if we include the 'other' category). If we only count anal and oral, Collin was the 47th sex partner and 23rd guy to fuck Will, as far as I can work out.
  20. Epilogue 4 -When JJ and Carullo have their moment in bed. "Your Body is A Wonderland" by John Mayer This song was everywhere in 2002-2003, and you know what? That was fine by me.
  21. He's incredibly cute, but in a way that makes you think he's a total sleaze, which seems to be what Mark is going for with Chris.
  22. Beautiful boy, except for the tired/dopy eyes. I would love to run bare-foot through those curls. but I would do a search for needle tracks before giving him an unqualified vote. MisterWill
  23. I just shifted over here from Black Widow as I find I understand this story line much better than trying to keep up with all the different characters on that one. I have been following this series since the very beginning (Gun Room?) and feel I have learned a great deal about the 1800's British navy and the politics of the period especially the relationships (many) between Britain and the other monarchies of the 19th Century. I made the comment about Paul I of Russia because my superficial readings of history lead me to believe he is the mad Czar and he is due to be assassinated in March of 1801, which, considering the slowness of ocean travel, would be just about the time Lord Granger is in Saint Petersburg. I am sure THAT will make his stay there interesting to say the least. Misterwill
