    Blood Moon

    These are great poems, Adi, perfect for the theme. Blood Moon, I think I love most. Thank you, I enjoyed reading them all.

    Chapter 1

    Thanks for sharing this. It was very moving. I still have hope Declan will make peace with himself. It sounds as if he is on his way.

    Sad to see the closet become a cage built on deceit. However, that point is balanced by the judicious use of humor throughout, so I expect our boy Ian will manage to get through this despite his trepidation. The Oprah line was funny and so was: "I’m sure that won’t come back to bite me in the ass." I hope you post additional chapters regularly!

    The Visitor

    This was very well done, and I enjoyed reading it. I wish I’d have the nerve to run off an unwanted visitor like that, but most likely I’d be hoping my facial expression would be the tell.

    You shouldn't care, not really. You are online, so am I and others. Perhaps this article will help: Why We Care About What Other People Think of Us
  11. AC brings us a story with many layers! It's about family; the family we're born into, the family we make, and the family we choose. The people who are in Alice and Fuchsia's life are familiar to us all! He tackles the sensitive topic of trying to get, and maintain, a pregnancy with care and compassion. It's a tale of love, about balancing self, with couple; hopes and dreams; what is, and what could be. Come along and meet Alice, her wife Fuchsia, their mothers, their friends, and Joy. You'll be glad you did.

    Thanks for the feedback! I do understand where you are coming from. Unfortunately, I'm a product of my environment, and many of my friends dropped so many f-bombs growing up, that to this day I curse strongly without even thinking about it. Even in my head 😅 But I hear you. I think this chapter had a little more gratuitous cursing than the subsequent ones will. I say that now lol... We'll see. I'll do my best. That is the main reason I put that warning in the book subtext. I knew some people would be uneasy about it. Hopefully you like it as much as I liked writing it! Cheers

    While I realize the f*bombs in the dialogue between 17 year old teens are going to happen, the f*bombs in the internal thoughts and self discussion seem a bit gratuitous. "I have always loved math. I love the precision. The definitiveness of it. Writing an English paper is a winding road to hell. Everything is more or less gobbledygook. English and the arts are all about subjectivity. Math is precise. Definitive." I suspect that paragraph reveals more than you know about you. Congrats on your story and on to the next chapter!

    Finding Joy

    Thank you, Def. Always wonderful to hear what you have to say about one of my stories! I do tend to write about love, huh I guess that's because I only want to write about worthy subjects. Thanks again, and major muahs!!!

    Finding Joy

    Funny you should mention Shohreh Aghdashloo specifically! I was recently binging on episodes of The Expanse, so she's the actress (and The Voice, lol) I saw and heard in my head for Hurricane Azra Khan Great minds think alike, huh... Thank you, Carlos, for reading, commenting and mentioning having admiration for Alice. This is after all her story, so I do want readers to connect to her and her situations. Thanks again for reading and giving the story a chapter "like"

    Finding Joy

    I think it's wonderful that you had your mom read this piece. It really touches my heart, and I'm super glad she found things to be generally "right". Please convey my gratitude and thanks to her Humor was something I paid close attention to here, even at a late stage in the process deciding the final scene we see of the couple in bed together needed to be lightened with more of it. It's always a tricky ingredient to use in the right proportions. But that you say if feels real-life is the best compliment I can hope to get. And as for moms and love, I do feel in my heart that this is a moms and daughters tale, and in that light, even Joy comes in to be proven her mother's pride and joy. Thank you for reading and sharing this story, Mike. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it

    Finding Joy

    Finding Joy! That was a lovely surprise I had a different idea as to who Joy was. There’s a lot of emotion in the story, but so much love too. I could empathise with what they were going through and was happy they came through stronger at the end of it all A really wonderful story, AC. Thank you.
