The Death of Angels - 5

Karl’s hand crashed across my face and sent me to the ground and stepped to go past me as I rose and lunged at him with my sword…

You and Michael upset some powers greater than Karl’s wrath…

Glory would soon know of her unknown angelic powers. The first arrow she shot would strike down her intended target…

Ashley Phoenix Riley - 6 - An Education of Self

“You may not appreciate this...
but I’m tired of you pussy-footing around about being attracted to other girls.
It comes as a putdown of my relationship with your Mom...
I don’t think you intend it that way. In some ways you don’t have another place to go;
I do love you... Sometimes feel like I am something less in your eyes!”

Nora Brought Out the Best in Her


Nora Brought Out the Best in Him



By Jessica C

(This is an different story for me, but one that underlies those who waited for others to give them direction or make decisions for them. Hopefully in time each of us accepts who we are and learns to live with oneself.)

The Death of Angels - 4

I had stepped out for some cool air and was coming back in when I saw Karl and the young woman entering the dimly lit hall and his silhouette all but disappeared. He had a spiritual presence that stunk with an ugly stench of evil. Suddenly I knew Marie’s name and asked her to leave him, “Marie, I encourage you to leave, Karl’s promises are not worth it.”

“Woman, I do not know who you think you are, but this is none of your business and I can crush you if you do not shut your mouth. If she leaves you can take her place.”

Mom told me, “Sometimes I just know I am an Angel doing God’s will and sometimes I am not so certain I am doing the right thing. I really get upset with myself if I think I did something wrong according to God’s will.” Then Mom asked me, “If you ever find in the Bible where it says angels are always right please let me know.”

“Well, I just thought you always are right, aren’t you?”

Ashley Phoenix Riley - 5 - Traumatic Education

Patti had been in my arms but I just had set her down. Three guys on roller blades came rolling down the walk. I gave them space, but one reached out and knocked me to the ground…

She knew the trauma of a young injured woman; the care and observation took its own toll. The first Doctor in a Resident, while he knew what he was doing, I could have been a side of beef…

“Mom I think they were angry with me because of Ryta or the street guys. One said, ‘I needed to watch out who I associate with…’”

My Office Gift - 3 - Blossoming of Anne

Britt pulled back her hand as I expected, her eyes were looking up to indicate she was thinking. It was the bright smile that followed I was not expecting. She eagerly grabbed my hands and excitedly said, “Do you know what that means? For some lesbians you are a dream come true!” I must have looked like a deer in the headlights. “That means you could probably get me, someone, pregnant and we could be a couple with our own child.”

I did not let go, but I kind of moved back. “I’m not even sure I am a lesbian. I’m not ready to think of a commitment or something like that.”

Ashley Phoenix Riley - 4 - Colliding Lives

I was approached by Ryta to whom I accepted a request to dance...
I gave her a kiss upon the end of our last dance…

Jess and I bumped into each other. I had lost my balance and took
hold of Jess so I wouldn’t fall. Standing face to face, we embraced
with a warm kiss… Jess and I would have more time in the future.

“Where am I?”

“You are in Salem, Salem, Massachusetts. Do you know where that is,” Mom asked?

“I kind of know where it is, but I am more afraid when this is. You said something about witches, I’m hoping we are not back when they had witch trials there,” Glory said. “And just before I crawled up the mattress and stuck my head out, I was a boy.”

Ashley Phoenix Riley - 3 - Learning Curves

“All three results saw you as a very mature person who has characteristics
of both male and female people. The short time we already have had together
indicates you are indeed quite a capable and feeling person.”


“While becoming a young woman may not be the easiest journey;
I think it is one that well suits you.
Your mixture of thoughts, feelings and experiences
in growing into who you are is comforting to me
but no guarantee.”

Pop Pop and the Unexpected Bridesmaid - Part 4 - Mom Wants Her Daughter

Several officials, two were security from the National Parks and one was with the FBI, were still insistent we leave or be arrested… “Before you disband or arrest us you might want to check with officials from the Senate as they were invited to speak before the Senate.”

Pop Pop’s phone rang; he became sad and began to approach me… Pop Pop took my hand and asks me to sit and I knew it was something else. “Tell me, I’m not a baby, I want to know what’s up.”

Ashley Phoenix Riley - 2 - The Girl Comes into View

Before we pulled away an officer ran over to the taxi and hands a card through the window. Bridgette hands it to me. It's a driver’s license marked ‘Identification only’. There was my picture and name as Ashley Phoenix Riley. I find a wallet with a change purse and place for my license along with a place for a phone with an I.O.U for a new phone... We were on our way. I knew where Bridgette lived, but I'm not sure of anything else. A confused look must have gone onto my face. Bridgette leaned over and gave me one of those women kisses on the cheek, saying “Welcome to Oz Sweetie.”

Mr. Briggs stuck his head into the office and announced, “Beason is comfortable in covering the additional cost of the Hospital Children’s Christmas… …Seemingly they heard both from the E.C.R. Hospital and the Philadelphia newspaper.” They are not sure what happened, but some are calling it the Christmas Miracle at Willow Grove.”

Ashley Phoenix Riley - 1 - Arising From the Ashes


“It may sound crazy, but it is the one thing I think I could handle... A group home won’t be an option because you know it’s only time before I get away... My Dad gave up on me, and I wouldn’t go back there... I didn’t do so well against three guys, so prison would be living a nightmare.”
“I do know what a transgendered person is and I’m not one. But Miss Riley is open and honest, so I know what I would have to live with... I expect that she will turn me down, but that is up to her. I see living as a girl as my only real option.”

My Office Gift - 2- Giving Back the Gift

“We did not come to be modest,” I said, “these kids health has been hit hard; our love needs to be beyond us feeling good. We want to be assured this would benefit both floors and show our caring beyond Tuesday night.” With the knowledge we will not forget and we will be back, Cheryl seems to be well impressed... Heather spoke, “I don’t think they will allow much of your money to go for others...”
Darla, “Anne has a following in our office, we'll help her do what's right... Holding Tracy in my arms, ready to leave. “You’re an angel and not just an elf, aren’t you?”

The New Girl in My Life - Part 3 - The Daughter and Girl Now Showing

Previously… Mom said thanks. I joked, “Don’t thank me yet, I’ve just started being your daughter. I still want to know more about those feelings and being a girl. You haven’t begun to tell me how to do it or about birth control.” … “Being a girl is what you should be about; you don’t ‘do it’.”

Mom and I had a long discussion. When we were done I went to my room and Dad and Mom got together. I heard Mom say, “This child better be a boy.” Mom, I learned preferred girls but I got her to question that.

Sixty-one Going on Sixteen - 2 - New Girl, New Family

Previously… I was a man of sixty-one recovering from quad by-pass heart surgery nine months later when testicular cancer was discovered. The noted surgeon I had waited for was a no show as he was called out of the area... Scans done some two months earlier proved insufficient but the scan prior to surgery by Dr. Greene was lost in their system.

The New Girl in My Life - Part 2 (Revised)

Previously… It was 7:10 and I had a surprise visitor, Matt Petersen had come to see me with Brianna. He was taken back both by how Bri reacted to me and how much of a girl I was. He shared, “Where is the troublesome boy?”…
Jeff is here and neither he nor I are angels.” Bri gave me a hug saying “Angel.” I could not help but cry…

… if I went to stay with the Petersens it was to stay as Jessie and for now to be their foster child. I would need to visit with her regularly and they wanted me on a hormone blocker for one month.

My name is Jeff but for years now and then I get these compulsions to see myself as a girl. It has become a growing ongoing tension between me and my parents that was supposed to be a thing of the past. It was two weeks before school let out for Christmas break, and I had an urge to be sick at school. I worked myself up to be sick so I could get sent home from school. I had weeks ago found some clothes a friend was throwing out and I had taken them, without anyone knowing but not yet had a chance to try them on.

Sam and I went for a walk, we kissed and hugged but I knew he wanted more. I was getting excited but did not to go any further…
…I passed out just for a moment. And Sharon glibly said, “I think this southern belle swooned from overheating her engine... Sis what am I going to do, this shouldn’t happen to me,” I whispered to Susan. …Susan hugged me back and whispered in my ear, “Patti, it did happen and it happened because you’re becoming my little sis. Please talk to me, I never thought I would have a Sis I could hold and talk to.”

I had on lipstick but had I learned how girls greet one another without smearing it on the other. I jumped up from my chair and ran to my mother entering the room. I jumped into her arms as a much younger girl might do…

“…Showing you panties to your friends is not becoming for your age.” …After I regained my composure, I introduce my mom, Karen Landis …

(Previously)… Mom spoke, “The doctor told us it wouldn’t get to this. The doctor and Carl’s Dad both said I should have locked the doors when he came to visit. That Carl was at a vulnerable time and he was ripe for in intervention.”

TGM speaking up about girls as best firends

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

I find friendships with women to be special. As a TGM I find female relations often go deeper, open to sharing at different levels. If it develops to something more is not as important, Friendship is valued just for self.

I find women in LGBT and not accepting one as a friend and showing me a fuller side of life that I find attractive.

Before we went to sleep for the night, Jamie and Sharon took me aside to talk. “We just want to thank you and say we are pleasantly amazed by the neat Sister you are turning out to be.” They could tell by the stun look on my face that I did not understand.

PREVIOUSLY
Dawn and Aunt Susan took me to get me some more clothes and if possible I would stay with them and finish the school year. Dawn was thrilled that Danica was to continue and wanted me to finish the school year with her. Shopping ended with a stop to get cosmetics and skin and hair care items. I was surprised that supportive in getting what I needed.

"Never thought of the possibility that my Dad could have been a rocker... When I told my Mom about wanting to take up the guitar and form a girl band; Mom said talk to your Dad... It was unlike my Mom to be indirect, but it was like a loud NO! ...Then she showed me an old guitar and amplifier; she was serious about me talking to my Dad, 'Ordinary Joe.'

MEGAN
Wow, how I thank the day Jenn took up the guitar and we got to see the other side of Dad. I am not saying I want Dad to be Jaz 24/7, but I am girly and I have enjoyed the change. I have not enjoyed the negative comments, but I can’t say Jaz has been embarrassing to me.

I was caught looking to closely at prom dresses... Denise text I should keep track of my monthly visitor. Mom Miller explains Denise’s reasoning... Dad and my brothers, not happy I'm continuing as Danica...

I was asked who had added the flowers. I was praised that the little touch was magnificent. I asked if they thought Jeff would like the gown. Mrs. Richards commented “He will love the girl in the gown and that you look so pretty. It will be the other girls who will compliment you on the dress, shoes, your makeup and the many other details.”

“Will Dawn and Denise know how beautiful it is?” Mom smiled at my interest on how I appeared and what friends would think. “Mom, did you notice my feet, I need that second pedicure you talked about.”

I started to putting on the skirt and now had a complication.
“Too bad Jeff’s not here to help you,” Dawn said with a smile...
“Young woman I am more than happy to be here for you and share,
but I think you need to be honest with me and yourself...
You may not have planned to kiss, but I do think you meant it.”

Thanks Dad for Being There - 4 - Back to a New Normal

I practiced daily as I can and jammed with Dad at least twice a week picking up a cord sequences here and there. Travis remained my instructor; he was comfortable with my working with Dad, saying I was progressing well.
Dad shared he leaned things, which helped him as well. While Dad became my biggest fan and encouragement, Mom would take time as well on the keyboard. He would usually use the bass guitar when we jammed and his acoustical guitar if he was trying to teach me something…

Thanks Dad for Being There - 3 - A Weekend Away

I am sure it was a bit awkward for Dad as he went to work with no hint of his feminine side. He said it was like living in two worlds as Wanda and the office women wanted to see and know more, and others were clueless.

Dad did make the mistake of telling Wanda a week later our mom was back singing again. Wanda shared he news with Mrs. Dole the wife of the CEO. She was hosting a preholiday social for women but did not want it stuffy or dependent upon men.
