*Sneak Peek* Narcolepsy
x Trevor x posted a topic in Writer's Circle's Peeks & PromptsThese are a few preview scenes from my new story "Narcolepsy" coming out sometime soon after 2015 begins, maybe before spring, it all depends on when I can get back to writing it, having to get through some personal New Years resolution stuff, but I am already a bit ahead and wanted to share some treats with you. I know with "Rebirth" I gave you two preview scenes, so given the wait time, with this I will give you four! Preview Scene 1 "Because..." He stared at Merit and lowered his voice to a whisper. "You never see...you never notice. Thing is...I don't want Liam to get in trouble." He ran his hands over his face. "He held me while Tyson beat me up, and I was literally powerless to do anything...and now I feel pathetic. I've crushed on Liam...and despite what he did and the fact that it put me here...I still care." "Okay...assuming I believe you, for a second, you would want to tell everyone about Tyson, but you'd protect Liam? Why haven't you told the cops about this? Or have you tried?" He kept a low tone and looked at Emry, trying to remain calm. "Because, what would it matter anyway?" Emry's head fell back and he looked at the ceiling. "You still don't get it." He sighed and looked at Merit. "I want to cry right now...because Liam could get into trouble, I want to cry because I like him...but he could never like me, he never would...and he held me there and let Tyson..." "Wait...so, you like Liam, that would mean that you're..." Merit's eyes slightly widened and he tensed up. "Yeah, it would." He leaned forward. "Let me paint another picture for you...Think about me...falling asleep at Waffle House...and then waking up in some parking lot, maybe still at the Waffle House, maybe not...I couldn't move to see." "That's right...awake, and yet I can't move. But...given my position, I could see a car, and my hand...and the wheel of the car slowly rolling by, inches from my hand, nearly running it over. Tricky thing is...not knowing if it was real or not, yet the terror was still there, just as great, because it could have been real." Emry then went on. "Or how about when Tyson and Liam beat me up for my medication, even a weak outcast could try to do something, run away, maybe fight back if they are the least little bit brave enough, but I can't...because my body becomes useless to me, I try...and the more I do, the more I lose control and fall helpless to whatever they wanted to do." "Sometimes, it can be confused as a seizure, but it's not, the difference is that you stay awake, fully aware, just completely helpless, unless of course at some point they knock you out." Merit stared at him and then looked down towards the table. "What would cause..." "You hang out with both of them, so I'm just going to put it like this. I'm narcoleptic, you idiot. Of course...I don't stay on my meds all the time, I frequently run away from my mom's house because I hate it there." Preview Scene 2 "Talio..." Asia grinned, knowing it annoyed her. "Do you have to call me that? It makes me sound like a man." Talia looked over at Asia. "What if you are?" Asia laughed. "Some people can pull it off good enough. Look at uh...what's her name?" She looked up, thoughtfully. "Hilary Swank! She made a rather cute boy, certainly not a man by my standards, she pulled it off though." "That was a horrible movie, I couldn't sit through what they did when they found out." Talia made a face. Asia looked at her nails and made a face. "Yeah...it was pretty brutal, leave it to Miki to pick such a movie for a sleep over...when we were twelve." She looked over at Talia. "I didn't know what it was about! I thought it was about a boy who was sensitive and...well, in a bad situation." The flaming blood red head chimed in. "You know I like those sort of movies." Miki shrugged. "I do too." Emry looked over at Miki. She looked up and returned Emry's gaze and a small smile appeared. "Aren't you the one that the teachers have been bitching at for falling asleep in class?" He slowly nodded. "Yeah, my grades are probably my biggest failure." He slightly grinned. "And no matter how much they bitch, you just lay slumped over your desk." Miki laughed. "That is the funniest thing in the world." Justin ran over to the group. "You guys ready?" "Yeah." Asia said in response to Justin. "We'll be seeing you, Talio..." She turned around and with the shake of her head, Justin and Miki headed off as they walked towards the school. "I swear...I hate her." Talia crossed her arms and paced back and forth a single time, then she looked up at Merit. "We should probably head to class." Merit slowly nodded and then he looked at Emry. "Will you be okay?" Emry grinned and shook his head. "May be my first year...but I think I've learned the place by now." Preview Scene 3 "So? What is it? What bothers you?" Merit asked, tears forming in his eyes. "Merit...we can learn to accept you, we will love you always, no matter what." He leaned forward. "What troubles me is all that you're willing to sacrifice right now, your entire future. You are eighteen and you are on the edge and every decision you make right now could determine everything, I don't mean to make that sound scary, but it's the truth. And he's...well...he's thirteen." "Dad!" Merit snapped. "Fifteen...he's fifteen." He paused. "Well, he will be this month." "Sorry, my mistake." Mark shook his head. "My point is...he still has so much to go through before he's even where you are now, added his condition on top of all of that and his background. I'm half tempted to contact social services because of who his mother is, she is unfit as could be and as far as I know, there is no one else, meaning if I did, he would go into foster care." "Then adopt him, you could do it...and then I could just take him where ever I go, and we all get what we want, I go to an awesome school and he comes with me." Merit shrugged. "It's simple." "No, it's actually not. A social worker stays in the picture for a period of time to make sure everything is working as it should." "Then do it now, dad. If you do it now...then by the time I move away...it'll be set in stone." Mark closed his eyes and shook his head. "We would have to fight his mother, prove shes unstable, there are processes, you don't just snap your fingers, tell them that she was acting like a drug addict, that we think she steals his medication and get it done." "But he said that she does, he can tell them." "Merit!" Mark opened his eyes, speaking in a raised, but controlled, and firm tone. "It's not that simple." "So, what are you going to do? Kick him out? Send him back to her? Or just report it to social services, make sure I never see him again?" Merit sat back. "I'll hate you forever if you do that." Emry stood outside the door, hearing the whole thing. His eyes widened and he quickly rushed off down the hall and into Merit's bed room and he breathed heavily, nervously, tears streaming down his face and he fell against the door, forcing it to slam shut as his legs gave way in a partial attack and he slid down, falling to the floor. Merit heard a door slam and he looked up. "Great, look what you did! He heard everything!" He got up and rushed out of his dad's study. Preview Scene 4 Merit had fallen onto his knees, holding onto Emry as his upper body lightly shook and jerked within his arms while his lower body was left limp in a mixed state of cataplexy and psychogenic seizure. He cried and looked up at his dad. "You can't take him away from me, you just can't." He leaned down, holding Emry as close to him as he could. Mark walked into the room after standing in the door way and he knelt down and looked at Emry and lightly ran his hand across his head. "He needs me..." Merit cried, watching as Emry slowly settled down within his arms, the jerking slowed down and settled as his eyes fluttered and he fell into a sleep state, passing out in Merit's arms. "Merit..I am not just thinking about you..." He looked up. "If you just let me wait a year, once he's sixteen, he can go where ever he wants, then I'll go where ever you want me to." He sniffled, not taking his eyes off Emry. "Merit...how will you pay for him a doctor? Pay for his medicine? Pay the hospital bills? He's been in the hospital twice now.." Mark shook his head. "I'm not trying to punish you or be the bad guy, but I want you to see the real world for what it is and I want you to be able to handle it." "I don't want to." Merit looked up at his dad. "Please...don't..." He shrugged. "Maybe he came into our life for a reason, Mia died...and he came into our lives, not because he could have potentially killed her, there was no way. It was all because his medication bottles were there...and thats all. You had two kids...because you were meant to. Maybe he's supposed to be..." "Mark..." Michelle stood in the door way, a shoulder leaned against the door frame. He turned around when his wife came upon the scene, and he looked up at her. "Let them be...just let them be." She shook her head, Mark needed to let up, their son had dealt with enough and now was not the time for Mark to be on his case. Mark knew his wife enough to know exactly what she was thinking. He slowly stood up and headed for the door and walked out of the room, Michelle closed the door behind them as they headed off down the hall. Merit cried softly. "Emry..wake up." He ran a hand over his head. "Please wake up..."
*Sneak Peek* See Me
x Trevor x posted a topic in Writer's Circle's Peeks & PromptsOkay, so as I posted in the other thread, I was writing a redraft of Narcolepsy and given that changes have been made, I felt another title was appropiate so I decided to make a new thread for the story with a couple of sneak peaks of the now titled See Me which will be out soon in 2015, though not as soon as it would have been, due to metaphorically working from few scraps and basically rebuilding and for that I apologize but I am happier with it and hope you will be too. Here is a link to the old thread with previous sneak peaks I posted and promised to try to incorporate into the new version even if there are slight alterations, though I don't think there are, I would have to look back to see but I am pretty sure much of them has stayed the same. https://www.gayauthors.org/forums/topic/39869-narcolepsy/ Now onto some new sneak peaks from the new version! Sneak Peak 1 "I can't believe you brought him to my fucking birthday party...of all the things to bring him to." Kane narrowed his eyes at Merit and he crossed his arms. "You already know how I feel about this." "And you know how I feel about it." Merit sighed. "Why? How come you get to pick everyone who gets accepted and no one else does? It's not fair." "That's because I don't pick fags to be in our group." Kane waved his hands out, wanting to yell at Merit but he kept his voice calm. "Don't you get that? Bring Miki into the group, I'd find a way to be cool with it, nothing wrong with her, other than the fact that she hangs out with that bitch, China...and I could even deal with her better than Emry, anyone, but him!" He sighed, his voice slightly raised by the end of it. "Asia..." Merit frowned as he corrected Kane. "I...don't know what else to say...I just don't." "Guys..." Justin walked over to the pool table that was located in a recreation room that lead right off from the large living space where the actual party was being held. He looked between Merit and Kane. "What is your problem with it? You know, Kane...basic psychology...someone who has that big of a problem with it...has some kind of issue with it themselves, aside from just hating people like that. I mean you hate Asia so fucking bad, but you'd accept her before Emry?" Merit shook his head. "I'd start really thinking..." Kane's eyes widened and he grabbed a pool stick. "Do you really want to finish that? Do you want to take this in that fucking direction?! Because I'm telling you right now, I'd advise against it!" "Guys!" Justin screamed and both Kane and Merit looked at him. He sighed and looked over at Kane. "You'll be happy to know..." He then looked at Merit. "And you'll be unhappy to know...that when Asia sees Emry...she is going to kick his fucking ass." "Why?" Merit asked. "Follow me and find out." Justin turned around and headed off. Sneak Peak 2 He headed over to a couple of outcasts who were known to play chess at lunch every day, and without so much as a falter in his step, he observed the board as he approached. His tongue rolled and he leaned down, from parted lips, a pink bubble bloomed as he took the king and made a move, knocking the queen out. The bubble burst and his tongue rolled out and circle, taking the gum back in and he grinned, stealing the queen piece. He shifted from his lean and walked around the table and headed over to one of the circular tables in the far corner where Trillian stood up, almost as if in honor of his approach. Emry grinned and brought a hand around the back of Trillian's neck and he pulled him close and kissed him while sending a foot back, kicking a chair out, letting Trillian go as he fell back into the chair and he clasped his hands over his stomach as Trillian reclaimed his own seat. "Oh man...Talia...if you don't take advantage of this...man...after all Asia has done..." Kane laughed. "She must of not been putting out!" "I don't go to Asia's level." Talia shook her head. Emry grinned at Trillian and his head shifted off to the side, seeing Asia and Miki staring at them and Asia looked as if her eyes could pop out of her head. That was when Emry laced his foot through the strap of Trillian's back pack and yanked it towards him. He leaned down and reached inside, his eyes remained focused on Asia. "Oh that's it!" Asia stood up and headed towards the table. "Now what the fuck is this?! Fucking around at a party and now humiliating me?!" She looked at Trillian. "And what's wrong with you?!" "Nothing is wrong with me..." Trillian looked up at Asia. Emry pulled an X-Box 360 controller out of Trillian's back pack. "Asia...you know...I figured I would give you this..." He held it out. "Since...I got a better joystick to play with and all...Might not be as big...but at least it has two." Asia looked at Emry. "You do not want to get me pissed off...I'll send you into an attack so fast..." "Ah..." Emry lifted his other hand, waving his finger at her. "And if I die? Might be considered murder...I'd at least get some legal advice first." He stuck his arm out, offering the controller. "Until then...enjoy." She glared at him and slapped the controller out of his hand and it hit the wall. She spun around and headed back towards her table. "Next one...incoming." Trillian said, trying to make his voice sound like it was coming over a walkie talkie, even cupping his hands around his mouth and making static sounds. "Emry!" Merit walked over. "First! You're lucky she didn't kick your ass! And second...what are you doing?" He looked over at Merit. What was he doing? Why had he made the decision he made? For the same reason he chose to do what he did at the party, attention. "Well...I was giving Asia new joysticks to play with. Now I'm talking to you..." Merit started to speak up again until Kane and the others approached the scene and Emry smiled. "Oh look...the whole gang is here." His gaze shifted towards Trillian. "It happened just like you said it would." Sneak Peak 3 Emry brought his hands up as he was prevented from flipping pages any further. "Dolph liked me, I always knew he did, but he was such a great friend to me that I couldn't imagine him being anything more. And...I was crushing on you, so..." Liam closed his eyes. "Right...and this goes to Merit..." "Well, he wasn't you, but he was just as popular, not a bad substitute, he was a stranger to me, and it was a stressing time and having someone care..that felt good. Plus he was as new to everything as me, which was a surprise, but it felt good, what felt even better was that he was a little more nervous about it than me, yet confident enough to push." Liam sat back and tossed this around in his head, trying to figure out a way to simplify it. "So, in a way...it was just an exciting first time experience, first kiss...and then..." "And then nothing, we kissed...it was innocent." Emry shrugged. "And then I thought about when you visited me in the hospital and I came to see you and...you...with you, I got to experience the sexual side of it...and you made me feel incredibly wanted. I mean...you wanted me to worship you...and I did, I fed your ego and in turn it fed mine because just knowing I was pleasing you...made me feel so good, I loved watching you feel good." Emry suddenly drew in a gasp of air. Liam looked alarmed and quickly leaned forward. "Emry?" Hell, he wasn't sure, every time Emry did something like that, he would think some kind of attack was about to come on. "Sorry..." Emry leaned forward. "And as I spoke of that...and as I thought of it...I became aroused again." Liam slowly leaned back. "You are?" He started to look down. "Right now?" "No...the awkwardness made it go away." He frowned. "Okay...so aside from awkwardness, there is still something." He said in a hopeful tone. "Except...I feel nothing for you, it all went away after that, I didn't feel anything until I talked about what we did..." Emry expressed. "So...you're saying...you can have the sex with me?" "I haven't even wanted to, the feelings went away just like they went away with Merit. That only happened because I was talking about it." He brought his hands up towards his face and rather than covering it, he pressed his palms together. "I guess that means...if we are to have anything...I have to be put in the mood." "Okay..if that is your guess." Liam stared at him. "And Dominik?" "There was so much sympathy." He looked up. "After seeing him, finding out everything that was done to him. I took his clothes and put them in the wash, then I took him to my shower and we talked and...I wanted, I felt like he had no one and I wanted to be someone and I became someone." He looked up at Liam. "Those feelings are still there, knowing he is all alone, has no one, I feel this need to take care of him, to love all of his pain and hurt away, to keep him and..." He lowered his hands. "I don't know what I'm going to feel next, this is just how I feel now, about you...and Merit...and Dominik." "Maybe you'd have a hell of a perfect guy if we were all mashed up into one." Liam managed a smile. "At least it's good to know that you aren't completely numb to me." "And I don't ever want to be, at least not right now." He shut the book and sighed. "Now I'm scared that I'll feel for people and then become numb to them. For whatever reason I feel, if that reason goes away, I lose what I feel." He looked up. "What if that is how it is for me?" "Don't think like that." He reached across the table and took Emry's hand. "I just need to know where we go next, where am I in the scheme of things? What is our next move?" He looked down at their hands and then he shrugged. "It's not the same as with Merit. I feel like I would be cheating on Dominik, I feel like he is this gentle fragile soul that is cracked and came so close to breaking, I just want to take care of him." "You need time...I understand." Liam nodded. "I can give you that time." Emry smiled. "I don't want you to be alone." He slowly pulled his hand back. "Lunch is about to start and I don't even know where to go." "Why not go to Dolph? You've got the time...fix a friendship that you cared so much about, one that you would of remembered had Merit and I not changed your life or made you confused or...whatever we did." Emry nodded. "That's probably a good idea." He pushed the book away and stood up. "Thanks for having this conversation with me, I think it was important that we did and...I don't think it's the end, not yet." He turned around and headed off and away from the table. "Hopefully not." Liam watched him go off and then he looked down at the book and his eyebrows lifted and a grin appeared. "Witchcraft For Warcraft.." He picked it up and opened it, looking inside the cover. "When your lover is addicted, maybe real magic is the way out..." He looked up and quietly started to laugh and walked off.
Trickster - a Sam and Jeremy story.
Ron posted a topic in Stories Discussion ForumSam and Jeremy were created in a story called What's Inside for the 2013 Fall Anthology. They were young boys and because I liked the characters, I wrote another story for them called The Difference Between Me and Me that showed them as teenagers. A new Sam and Jeremy story posted today . . . [sharedmedia=stories:stories:4327] Best friends do everything together; best male friends wrestle, tackle each other, and roughhouse with one another. They go fishing together, hiking, and camping. They plan together. Or maybe one just plans and the other goes along with it no matter what, because it’s his best friend. Sam and Jeremy are these types of best friends. They are inseparable; they've been best friends since childhood, and now at the ripe old age of fifteen they're getting ready for Jeremy’s favorite holiday: Halloween. Jeremy has it all planned out. Sam and he spend hours and hours working on their costumes and that’s where the fun really begins. It starts with creepy crawly fake bugs, screaming kids, crazy dogs, burly football players, and it ends with one angry mom. But Jeremy’s not worried, because he has the rest of the night all planned out. ~Lisa
Favourite Stand Up Act
Yettie One posted a topic in Forum Games and HumorOk. I've done a search and couldn't find anything similar. These days so much of the stand up comedy is available on YouTube, and as a way of just chilling out and laughing for a while, I often go in search of some really good stand up comedy acts, so figured that, well as I don't know them all, it'd be great to share our fav comedy acts so that we can all enjoy a chuckle at one or two clips we've never seen. So to kick off here is one of mine. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uwOL4rB-go
