Length: 9,732 Description: Okay so I can admit it, I’m a freak. It’s official, and I say that only because it’s true. Sitting here, waiting for the doorbell to ring again, or to hear some low knock on our heavy wooden door from some costumed children, accompanied by some less than enthusiastic adults who are constantly reminding their kids to say thank you, I had managed to separate all the candy bars in the bowl I held in my lap, by flavor. I mean what kind of head case does that? A Reader Said: This was actually my first story I ever read when I joined GA, and still remains my favorite piece on the whole site. I was 17 when I first read it, and the realism of the teenage characters rung so true to real life it totally engrossed me.

He can run away from people, he can run away from places, but he can't run away from his demons. His attempt for a fresh start and for a better life is not so easy. He comes to realize that some people are not meant to be saved, and that some ghosts never completely go away.

  12. As the year speeds up, seasons change, and my own kids grow and continue to make me older (so not nice of them!) I often find myself pulled toward stories that feature parents. But not every story is always sweetness and light and happy--and life is truly represented in this tale that will tug at your heart and maybe make you reach for a tissue or two as well. One of Bill's many anthology entries, you will have missed out if you haven't read Consolation Parents before. Length: 5,161 Description: Scott Fisher received an unexpected phone call early one morning, which ended up changing his and his boyfriend's lives.

  15. January is a new year, a fresh start, or maybe just another month in the calendar for you... but it's all about time.

Some Readers Said: charlieocho said: Ah, what luck to stumble upon this masterpiece! It will be difficult not to devour this story...a deep chord is struck already. LJH said: You are a brilliant writer. Hooked, hell yes from the first sentence. You build the story and you don't let up and that's a point, raising left index finger and stroking the air. You've given Jake a light, airy, adventurous nature, and Rob Ellis beautifully paints his story. But then again, you are passionate about giving your characters soul, your plot a life, and reinventing style. You have steered clear from the stereotypical gay meets gay scenario and made yours different and consuming, I love the way they meet and then reintroduce themselves. They click.

  17. Another oldie but very popular in its day goodie, Goon by dkstories, was nominated for a Classic Author feature by Timothy M. Originally a Premium story, this has been made available to everyone on the site. Have you ever wondered what life might be like if you had a chance to go back and fix something? A single moment, a day, a lifetime? The idea is intriguing, isn't it? Check out dkstories' take on the idea with Goon! nominated by: Timothy M. Length: 94,608 Description: Micah was a goon. He knew it and everyone else knew it. But he had connections and it put him in the wrong place at the wrong time. Miles Long said ~ This is another fun, creative tale full of political intrigue and fantasy. It's pace was a bit clumsier than other dkstories stories, but the character dynamics were so rich and the relationship between our hero and his lover were so solid, small things can be easily overlooked. If anyone on this site hasn't read this yet...stop, sit and read. Many thanks for sharing dkstories! Stephen said ~ THEY WON ! How brilliant... It all seems so simple now. But it's not, or has been so easy, has it? The second time reality was better when played out. If only... Thanks for the wonderful story, you can do that every day. -But then I'd get spoiled. Rebelghost85 said ~ I really admire your ability to stop a story at a good ending point, leaving room for a sequel or for the reader's imagination to finish the storyline. It allows you to cut your stories into manageable chunks and we get to clamor for sequels. Ron said ~ I can understand why this was a premium content story. That was one heck of a ride what with one unexpected thing after another happening. Highly unbelievable, highly fantastic and highly entertaining. Bravo!

  18. Did you check out the banner from Monday's blog for this month's Classic Author Feature? Drew Espinosa chose Tiff's story, The Price of Revelation. This teen story is full of angst and romance, with a few life lessons tossed in. I asked Drew why he picked this story and excerpt to share, and this is what he had to say: Drew said: With those opening words, I was immediately sucked in. For me, I had to know what happened. What caused the breakdown of Sean's dad? What did Sean do? I had set out to read the rest of the story to find out, and along the way, I fell in love with the story and its characters.

Farrell is the last grand master wizard in the Seven Kingdoms and the Chosen of Honorus, lord of the gods. Haunted by his failure to prevent the deaths of his mother Zenora, Queen of Yar-del and the legendary wizard Heminaltose at hands of Meglar, Farrell struggles to lead the survivors in holding back the dark tide threatening to conquer the continent.

Plans that will determine the fate of the entire world. Wicked Witch said ~ Absolutely an insightful, impactful and wondrous piece of writing that any fan of high fantasy must read. Instantly one of my favourite pieces of literature ever. Stephan said ~ Oh, it's over? I'll miss this story, so I hope Book 2 comes soon. This has been a wild adventure, and I've grown fond of Farrel and his friends. The writing is excellent, you spoil us. Thanks. Chezakeeba said ~ Great story! Can't wait for the next one!

  20. Did you miss out on the feature on Monday? You can still visit it here and download your copy of the signature banner featuring Andrew Q. Gordon's story, Chosen of Honorus. It represents this scene chosen by Caz Pedroso as her favorite in the story. Let's find out why Caz picked this particular scene: Caz Pedroso said ~ I picked it because I like this bit because it shows a lot about Farrell. It shows that no matter how scared, tired, or unprepared he feels he will stand up for himself, others and the things he believes in. And of course I like reading about Horgon getting a dressing down from what he calls soft human. He really should have kept his opinions to himself LOL. Excerpt: Want to read more?
