    This was so tender, I love it

    Thank you, MurphyD.

    Spoiler

     

    Harry needed tenderness, and done in a way he wouldn't reject. The environment of the campground along with his new friend, Gus and his loving parents fit the bill.

    And he finally did it.

    Tales from the Refuge

    Thanks. I have had so many little stories spark in my mind for the campground, but few that'd go for a full story. This is the answer to that situation. I hope folks enjoy them.

    Broken - A Camp Refuge Story

    So ... I'm a geek. I love patterns and little secrets. I put one in Broken, and now that all chapters are posted, it's discoverable. That's the one and only hint I'll give. If you find it, post here. 🙂

    Broken - A Camp Refuge Story

    Sometimes "the real" is pretty messed up. It can be ugly, and painful, and just ... dark. But there's a lot of beauty possible too. I do promise that I am going to tell a story, as real as I can, and yet it's one filled with people who, though they are fallible, they try to do the right things. Because they truly do try. Stick with me. And thanks for reading.

    I've been following Camp Refuge since the first story. It's name says it all, it's about saving people, whether they know they need saving or not. Now Avery has unwittingly hurt they very person he thought he was helping, by trading his own ADHD drugs for a couple of Oxy for Lee. Unfortunately, the Oxy (may have been cut with Fent) and Avery is on death's door. And Lee, thinking he's killed Avery, is running away - back to the streets. Harlen needs to save Lee. Come on Wayne, save these young boys.

    Thank you, David! I'm glad you're taking the story for a spin. I think it's a good one.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment, madinessex. I need everything I write to feel possible within the world I'm writing. That means characters who are flawed, emotional, and as real as I can get them. I want readers to read along, maybe not agreeing with them, but understanding why the character is making the choice they made. That's what I want. I'm glad I hit the mark, in at least some of those for you. Thanks again for commenting. It does mean a lot to authors to get that feed

    Beautiful. Utterly, magnificently beautiful. The depth of emotion in your stories is so vivid and real, it has repeatedly taken my breath away and left me in tears, both of joy and sometimes of sadness. I've been a reader on here for a few of years now, and have enjoyed many stories by a number of authors, but this is the first time I felt compelled to post a comment. I've read three of your wonderful stories now, and can't wait to read the rest.

    Thank you for writing such full and rounded characters, each of whom I have connected with so deeply. Their lives and loves are addictive, and such a joy to read.

    Thanks again for commenting. It does mean a lot to authors to get that feedback, and I'd encourage you to continue sharing when something really grabs you. You never know ... you may be the reason someone writes another story. 🙂

    There's more to come from me down the line. Stay tuned.

    I am long overdue, replying to this one! Thanks for the great comments, Hugsly. I appreciate them. My apologies for taking so long to let you know it! As for adding to the story of Troy and Grant, I don't know. I mean, I'm open to it if they speak to me of a new adventure they'd like to take. If that happens, I'll dive back in.

    I also have enjoyed reading this story again.  I hope that somewhere down the line you add to this story because you have done such a great job.  Thank you

    Thanks, Jack. I try to keep things real, because that’s the only way I feel characters are relatable. I’m glad that comes through!

    Wayne, I’ll never tire of reading more Camp Refuge episodes. The characters, young and older, are all so well drawn. The emotional highs and lows are very real to me. You’ve made me laugh and cry. Great work! Everyone should read this series. All the best, Jack.

    Thank you, Brendoni. I like this one quite a bit, and my editor's skills certainly helped polish things nicely. There are a couple of chapters to go and it will be completely posted to the site. I hope you stick around for the whole ride!

    I’m really enjoying this story. It’s well written. It’s well edited (such a bonus with a lot of gay fiction). The characters are well-fleshed out. I can’t wait for the next chapter.

    I'm glad you found all of the things you shouldn't say about the story, droughtquake. 😛 But, I'm happier that you're enjoying it - no matter the reasons. Thanks.

    If I say I’m enjoying this story because of the ethical issues it raises, it’ll give people the wrong impression. If I mention that I can identify with Troy being homeless (although he’s living in his van), it’ll make people think that’s all it's about. If I say that I’d never be like Grant moving from wonderful California to icy Vermont, they’ll focus on their dislike of my state. But If I don’t say any of those things, they’ll get the impression that they’ll be meeting characters named Ash and Ember!

    Yup. It’s possible. Though this is a heavily refined version.

    Thanks, Chris.  I love this one quite a bit.  It can give readers a little whiplash, as there are so many issues that are tackled... but that's the nature of the tale.
