  1. We both slept in a little, and when he climbed from the bed he pushed me down, kissed me and told me to relax a while longer. I rolled in his bed and drifted in a semi-conscious state, my nose filled with our mixed scent. I slowly replayed the night before in my mind, and I was soon achingly hard. Julia and I had enjoyed the sex life we'd managed, but in a feeling that was becoming familiar, this was different. It wasn't just the physical fact that he was a guy; it was the intensity. It was... It was like when I'd first lost my virginity and all I could think of was doing it again. The

    Great speculation, but I will neither confirm nor deny any of the ideas expressed. One thing of interest to me, @wildone is always the things we believe that are viewed, and rightly, as judging. When I think of someone with obvious good genes taking their clothes off, I like the idea but I also don't like it being so widespread - especially in the current age. If you add in a relationship, I'm not sure how some folks manage to date someone who poses nude or uses their body in that manner to make a living - such as a porn actor. To my way of thinking, it's a more private act and it would s
  3. “Let me see! What are you doing?” he asked with happy suspicion. He stood beside me as I showed him the picture and he raised an eyebrow at me. “Hey. Not bad, Car Doctor Owens. Maybe you should be a photographer.” “Yeah? Can I do your boudoir set?” “Oh. I don't know,” he said, teasing. He pulled his phone out and his mouth dropped open. “Jesus! It's after five?” Glancing at my phone I saw it was indeed past five – almost five-thirty. “Wow. I guess time got away from us.” “Oh, God!” he said with a groan. “We are such a cliché!” “What?” I asked, bubbling w
  4. The first thing that drew me was the title because i like baseball, but I stayed for the amazingly well drawn characters who were finely detailed with their own idiosyncrasies and a tangled web that was delightfully silly. The author took two main characters and filled out the story with an ensemble of a supporting cast that doesn't feel like they were there just to fill a space, but as though they had purpose and a life outside the bits you read about. Even though this is a romance at heart, and one of my favorite tropes - people who initially don't like each other but have to learn
  5. I headed down to the shop Saturday morning to get the weekly laundry done. Once that was started I got restless. I had nicer clothes on – khakis, boat shoes and a polo that complemented my complexion, or so Julia has said once or twice. Unfortunately I had nothing else to do. I took my phone out, but found myself drawn right back to Ben's images. I texted Luca, but he wasn't answering – probably sleeping in. I texted Julia, and she actually texted that unless this was an emergency, let her sleep. Ugh. I needed a distraction in the worst way. I looked around a little and decided I shoul
  6. Wow. I always love reading the comments and ideas of readers, but this is really special. Thank you for writing this and thank you to anyone who is moved to read.

    Chapter 5

    I just love these comments and thank to to everyone for these insights. For those that made the connection, yes Peter has appeared elsewhere in my work and he hasn't changed. He appeared in 'The Tull Unification'. On my own message board someone asked why Matt and Nick weren't there, as they were also from TU, but I figured it wouldn't make sense - why would they be there if someone they dislike so much was also there? Also they'd need a reason to be there in town, and Ehren and Tris moving early because of Tris' parents seemed more likely from a storytelling point of view.
  8. My nerves were dancing as we pulled up to Nirvana. The outside was just painted cinderblock. The windows had some beer neons and a rainbow. There was an old neon sign over the entrance with The Nirvana Club in stylized script. “Jace is jealous,” Lilly said as we hit the sidewalk. “He has to work tonight.” “I thought he worked here?” I asked. “Part time,” she confirmed. “He also has a job at a burrito place.” Conversation stopped as we reached the padded door. With a deep breath I opened it and we were hit with waves of dance music. There was a small booth with a
  9. So exciting - my Padres have their first ever no hitter! And since I sprung for the MLB.tv package, i actually saw it all!

      Well, it used to be Seattle Mariners, but that was when they had Ichiro. My other favorite team is Blue Jays. I've just been enjoying their 15-1 win over Angels yesterday.

      I follow the Mariners in a half-assed way because they have Nick Margevicous (I know I spelled that wrong) and I really liked him when he was with the Padres for his rookie year. I like the Cardinals in the east, but I was bo0rn in SD so I back my Padres first 🙂

      We'll have to return to this conversation after the Dodgers visit the Padres next week. :lol:

  10. I started a Star Trek one, but I've too many ideas in my head and it's fallen to the wayside. I do seem to recall reading an HP fanfic by @Myr and I'm wondering if it's time to start bugging him about that again...:-)
  11. Readers are a wide-ranging bunch and enjoy tons of different content. Some will read certain genres far more than any other - romance, sci-fi or only want happy ending stories. As a writer I can't possibly fit into all categories, nor should I. Rather than write something I wouldn't enjoy as a reader, I tend to write the strange things that flit across my consciousness and just hope someone else enjoys them too - that's the easy way. Then there's the complicated way, but to get to that I think I have to understand myself as a reader as well. As a reader I enjoy several genres, several sty
  12. Neat idea and I'll read with interest, though I have too much writing I'm working on right now to be helpful.
  13. Monday morning I was working on removing a valve cover on an old Honda whose gasket had dried up and started to leak. The motor smoked something nasty when it warmed up, burning the oil and leaving a residue all over the engine compartment and the windshield. I was just setting the cover aside when I heard someone calling out. “Hello?” “Hi,” I hollered back and poked my head around the upraised hood. Two guys were approaching. One had well defined chest and arms, and his shorts showed he hadn't skipped leg day. His partner had more of a runner's build and was kind of lanky.

    You're right, and thanks for sharing these here, Paul. We have a bit of story yet to go 🙂

    Bless you all for your speculation - I do love it!
  16. “I got us each a burrito and then a quesadilla to split,” he said with a grin of hungry anticipation. I handed him a ten for mine and we tucked into some awfully damn good burritos. “So. Does this thing that happened with Benji have you questioning yourself at all? I don't think I asked that,” Luca said, then took a healthy bite. I worked a piece of tortilla off a tooth where it had become stuck. “I don't know,” I said with a sigh. “I mean...sure, some guys look good. But everyone knows that, right?” Luca nodded. “I think so. I can understand why some girls are attracte

    Unfortunately I didn't write all the Sanitaria Springs stories. Some have arcs that can be more or less stand alone, and I share them here. There are currently about 120 episodes, though the first few are only tenuously linked. You can find them at my website under the Sanitaria Springs heading.

    Chapter 2

    Thank you for he wonderful comments so far! To clear things up a bit - this story takes place in the Sanitaria Springs universe and Howard and Chloe were established as a couple in the story 'New Home, Old Family' and Chloe is Derek Pellegrini's sister. SS cast members will be making cameos as well as some surprise visitors later in the story.
  20. She was quiet for a moment. “Damn it, Ry. Okay. I need you to do one thing for me, all right?” “Yeah. Okay.” “We broke up last week. Okay? Like, Thursday of last week.” I was trying to wrap my head around her request when she continued. “Wait, have you talked to anyone about this?” “Luca.” She sighed. “Okay. No one else?” “No. Not something to brag about.” “Right. Okay, he will keep his mouth shut so – last Thursday, okay?” I thought for a moment. “Why?” “Brenda Givens.” I frowned. “What about her?” “Look, Ry, this
  21. I felt the mattress shift as someone got up, but I wasn't really awake. I opened and closed my mouth, slowly working up to a yawn. As my mind slowly cleared I became aware of a fuzziness that always affects my thinking after having a few beers – I was a lightweight. I heard a shower start up – the curious stuttering of water running, then spitting as it shifted from the faucet to the shower head. I took a slow, deep breath and a few moments later realized the scents I was processing weren't familiar. Or maybe they were, but in such a distant way that I couldn't place them. Maybe it was just my
  22. Ryan wakes up in a strange place. Then Benji walks in and Ryan realizes they slept together. What will he tell his girlfriend?
  23. I thought I'd try this out. I don't know about a lot of you, but I know I don't do my best work in a vacuum. I usually solve some of this by using beta readers, but I also have had fun writing with other writers. So here's what I'm thinking. I have a long running episodic, ensemble cast story called Sanitaria Springs that could use new blood. Because it's established there are some existing characters that need someone to write them, or there can be new characters to bring their own stories to town. Not to toot my own horn, but I've written with people a few times and it normally works ou
  24. I thought for sure the first one was Navigator by @Cynus
  25. A new mystery? The question becomes, if Andrea is to be trusted, is Jonah older or younger? Some of his mannerisms point to younger - and he could easily check company records to confirm - or he could be older if there is some kind of game going on.
