    Re: speculations. I'll just repeat what I wrote privately to Dabeagle after reading the whole thing via the “read ahead” service available on his own site. (Note: NO spoilers.) We're still getting to know people.
  2. Stories whose first grammar error is in the title.

    That's because it's dealing with plausible, complex characters in plausible situations that drive character development rather than just providing excuses for between-the-sheets action and gratuitous drama.

    I love Parker's relationship with his folks.

    Chapter 11

    This is the comment I made on Dabeagle's forum when the story completed there: You handled the underlying concept perfectly, I think, by concentrating on the how the protagonist handled the two big challenges: how to change the perceptions of people who knew the old Drake, and more importantly, how to re-live his own early life better and more rewardingly than he had the first time around. You didn't get bogged down in the mechanics of alternate reality or in going into how the protagonist's old family might have fit into it, or if they even existed. Frankly the former would have b

    Jeff reads like a hard-boiled private eye in a Raymond Chandler mystery.

    Chapter 3

    You've hit the nail squarely on the head! Both those scenes were extremely well done.
  9. His were among the very first online gay stories I came upon - an experience many have had. After reading his existing work, I started following his ongoing writing regularly, eagerly, in fact. Soon after In the Fishbowl started, it became clear to me that he'd made a major advance, both in characterization and narrative; I think it's the best thing he wrote (though I haven't seen any of his unfinished Premium work). That he'd been experimenting, and putting a great deal of effort into doing so, was, I think, shown by The Other Side of Me. I think this goes along with what Jim has said
  10. I'm a long-time fan of Mike Arram's writing. The Count Oskar chapters are showing up first on CRV Boy, BTW.

    These have been a particularly olfactory couple of chapters!

    Ha ha, typical Type 5 reaction Seriously, generalized "tests" or "analyses" like this, whether they're ostensibly "scientific" or veer off into realms of mumbo-jumbo, like palm reading and astrology, usually have one thing in common: the results are sufficiently broad that it's easy to see at least something of ourselves no matter what they come up with. Still, I think the 4w5 I got was pretty accurate once I read and compared it to the other 8 types. But then, I think I'd probably have come up with that just from the descriptions, without taking the test itself. Maybe the greatest v
  13. At this point it looks to me as if Dom, having experimented with the suspense/thriller genre in "The Other Side of Me," is now trying his hand at comedy. Not that there hasn't been humor in his other stuff, and not that there isn't drama in ITFB, but the sheer quantity of comedic writing and incidents here is enough to set it apart, at least for me. I'm not talking slapstick, sitcom comedy here, or laughs for their own sake, because it not only respects the nature of the characters, but logically advances the plot. Plus, the moments of tenderness and feeling are still there and just as aff
