Hi! I'm Mercury. I've started reading fanfiction in early teens and then got sucked into everything related to gay fiction. I have been writing it for quite a while, though I've been suffering from a pretty serious writer's block for the last two years. I've spent the pandemic basically staying locked in and trying to produce something between working and being bored out of my mind, but none of the new concepts lasted, so I'm trying a different angle and translating my old work into English, because why not. You all seem like a nice bunch, so I would like to start publishing here after I check what you've got to read and probably get sucked in again. Now I have done a bit of translating before (fanfiction mostly), even if only the other way around (English to Polish), but I am not a professional translator and English is far from being my first language. But so far I'm pretty happy about it and happiness must be shared.

Nice to meet you all, I'm going exploring. 

Hi Mercury! Welcome. Sharing the happiness sounds like an excellent idea 😊😊😊

Hello. I came back. You can call me Clint. I joined gay authors way back in 2011 and then I strayed away for a long time. Honestly, I kind of forgot about this site. Something made me think of it the other day and so I came back to see if it was still here. Yeap, it is. The few stories that I posted back then are gone now. My membership had expired. I just renewed. I see the place has been spruced up a bit. Looks nice. Be nice to meet some new folks.

dear Mercury,  English may not be your mother tongue, but it's way better than, I have to say, the English of many natives - at least the ones publishing here. So please DO continue to submit...

Thank you, @petrus, that's really nice to hear. I'm a little self-conscious about it, as I've always paid a lot of attention to linguistic correctness, which is twice as hard while using a language you don't feel so comfortable with. So it's good to know that I'm not butchering the English language too much. And no worries, I'm definitely going to keep publishing. 

Though I have to say that there is a lot of very high-quality writing on this site, both in aesthetics and language, especially for the internet standards. But I might not catch the mistakes as easily while reading.

      Hey everyone, my name is Noah from Texas and I love to write and paint using as much of a variety of mediums as I can get my hands on.  I'm pretty new to this kinda group and I'm excited and lovin it so far. I have a tons load of journals I've written some short but tons hot stories and some chapters long. I love adding a lil if my experiences with my huge fathomless imagination. There is nothing shocking in what our beautiful minds can create or imagine.  Love the hugeness that is this hive if openness.  I do have a few curiosities about things I can write for the windows to the vast mind.  What is allowed plain for all to use and expand on and what is considered by the narrow, dingy blinders as vulgar, uncouth or tactless. Perhaps someone that has been overstimulated by all the richness here, as I feel right this moment, can sternly point the way to some restraining guidelines to yawn and detest; knowing full well that I MUST ABIDE TO HELP the silenced, muted emotionally and fiercly animated majority.  I LOVE entirely too much, my sleeve a bloody smear that resembled a pretty perfectly, beautiful heart once upon a time; however it never deters me from lovin like I've never loved before. Everything we were taught is ONLY a fantastical, heavenly lie or a brash, unapologetic hell. For me the wrongfully righteous do NOT exist. Merely a PROPAGANDA imagined by man to entice his brother to gravely sabotage himself; So that a fortissimo cacophony of guilt and pain is heard from the most soto voce of nothing. I'm looking forward to learning and opening my heart, if possible, to more of what is all the universe that is our minds. 65,000 thanks from the one in the gutter, but I'm looking at all the stars. Evermore yours,
      Noah.

      On behalf of the Editing Team, I'd like to introduce, and welcome our newest Beta Reader
       
      Bachgen Cymraeg
       
       
      I'm sure Bach will make a valuable contribution to the Beta team. He is all set and ready to take on new authors. He fully understands that Beta Readers are paramount to spotting logic, plot problems and consistency of character traits among other things and that a Beta Reader is a ‘second’ reader to go over the story to see how it flows; kind of like a test pilot for the story for the author to gain feedback before publishing.
       
      When asked what comes first, plot or character his opinion was that the plot takes precedence, since that is what keeps the story going and the reader interested. He is also of the opinion that a good plot is nothing without properly developed characters; who wants to read an amazing plot with the most boring characters imaginable? So one could start with an amazing character and build a plot around them. I guess it depends on the author’s initial thoughts and ideas about the story. I don’t think it’s necessary that either should come first but merely that they are developed properly.
       
       
      Welcome to the team, Bach.
      Happy Beta Reading.

      On behalf of the Editing Team, I'd like to introduce, and welcome our newest editor / beta reader
       
      Kev de Cauchery.
       
      I'm sure Kev will make a valuable contribution to the GA Editing/Beta team. He is all set and ready to take on new authors. His favourite genres are romance and drama. He doesn't mind editing / beta reading 2nd drafts. He fully understands that Beta Readers are paramount to spotting logic, plot problems and consistency of character traits among other things.
       
      When asked what comes first, plot or character  his opinion was that there is no hierarchy there, but characters are the ones who push the plot, and the plot should be aligned with character traits.
       
      Welcome to the team, Kev.
      Happy editing / beta reading.
      But, mostly, happy writing.

      On behalf of the Editing Team, I'd like to introduce, and welcome our newest editor
      Roland Q.
       
      I'm sure Roland will make a valuable contribution to the GA Editing/Beta team.  He is all set and ready to take on new authors. Roland is a writer too, so he understands that when a writer puts pen to paper and becomes engrossed in the writing process, grammar and other writing principles can be overlooked because the writer is so close to his body of work.  His favourite genre's include: Romance, mystery and fantasy stories.  He doesn't mind editing 1st or 2nd drafts.
       
      When asked what comes first, plot or character (much like the chicken or the egg), his opinion was that plot and character are difficult to separate.  The action, flow,  and mechanics of the foward movement of plot, must make sense for the character because any divergence from plot might add another dimension.  In essence, he knows that plot and character must work together.
       
      Welcome to the team, Roland.  Happy editing.  But, mostly, happy writing.
