In honor of Remembrance day, let me share a story about my grandfather.

My grandfather served in WW II with the "Calgary tanks", and as such was on the front lines of almost every battle involving Canadians.

He helped fight Rommel in Africa, helped invade Italy, and much more.

He was wounded several times. pieces of shrapnel were permanently lodged in his lungs, and in his shoulder.

He had been told, as most were, that the war would be over in months, but served six years. In the process, he missed his small children growing up.

Looking for Story

The story I’m looking for started out with the main character either going to University or working in one and one of the teachers or head of departments was working on a time travel device and uses the main character as a test dummy and it allows the main character to go back to when they were young and allow them to rectify the fact that they didn’t come out to their mother about wanting to be a girl. This part of the story takes place in the 1950’s/60’s I think.

Flash fiction - a personal ramble that even gets to music

It is suggested that Ernest Hemingway, a writer of some repute, won a bet by writing a tragedy in only six words. Now there is considerable solid evidence that suggests that in fact the story had been around since before EH was born, and a version, less succinct, was published when EH was merely 10 years old.

Nevertheless, the story, in its entirety was as follows:

For Sale: Baby shoes. Never used.

3rd gender in German personal papers

The highest German Court decided that it is unlawful of the Government to force people to distinguish only between male and female in their personal papers - a 3rd possibility must be made available.
An article in the German Newspaper SPIEGEL explains this further.
The Courts decision is based on the petition of a person who genetically could not be identified as male nor female but both. The ruling before was that from the very beginning an entry in the field 'sex' was required by law but the only possibilities were 'male' or 'female'.

Stanley Morton

Author: 

It's hard to believe that it's been more than four years since Stanly Morton, known as Stanman on this site and others, passed away. He was reviled by some, tolerated by others, and accepted as a writer by a few. Some authors here actually met him, others would have avoided him at any cost. Stan was a short person. I believe he was about 5' 7". He weighed about 450 pounds, and he had numerous health problems. One thing, though, was that he read every story posted here, and commented on all of them. Erin said he had made over 20,000 comments while here.

I can remember a wife gets a letter from a letting agent regarding a flat that she is unaware of as her husband as recently passed on.

Wife visits the flat to discovery husband was a cross dresser and was not able to share this with her.

Any help with this is appreciated

So okay, my plans for Sunday went a little awry, I ended up on a day trip to Lincoln and didn't get near a computer - you will get the next instalment of Nena soon, I promise.

Stories have a mind of their own - my word processor is possessed

I started a new story last week. Before I started, I had prepared an outline in my mind, and then I started writing. Somehow, halfway down the first page my outline went out the window, and the story itself took over. I wrote and I wrote. I tried to keep a central theme, and had to go back and excise parts that strayed too far from the theme.

Historical event today: Danica Roem first openly transgender person elected

Blog About: 

Author: 

Today's election in Virginia is truly historical. The ripple effects of her election will be significant, long lasting and positive. Election is acceptance. "Virginia’s Danica Roem to be first openly transgender person elected, seated in a U.S. statehouse" - The election "... pitted a 33-year-old former journalist who began her physical gender transition four years ago against a 13-term incumbent who called himself Virginia’s “chief homophobe” and earlier this year introduced a “bathroom bill” that died in committee."

Pondering title

I am trying to work on an idea I have had since the 1990’s that has its basis (thereabout) on an old game and a song by Demi Lavato but I didnt want to rehash the game’s plot (too much going on and legal issues) but wanted to use the feel.

Touchy Subjects

I just started to post my new story. It's my most violent story yet and features my breaking my final personal pledges- sexual assault on minors and the rape/torture of several children.

I tried to make the violence intermittent but there was a large scene that it was necessary and cemented what was building up until that point. I know that a lot of people dislike violence but I try to be realistic even if my stories are all overly optimistic so it is violence with a meaning instead of simply violence for the sake of violence.

TG Consortium + Psyren's redemption = 2 for 1 update

Word math, don't you love it?

First and foremost, I'd like to announce the launch of yet another website, the TG Consortium Forums. As near as I can tell, within the tg community there is or has never been anything quite like the consortium. What is it, you might ask, it's a place where tg content creators (writers, comic artists, etc) can gather about bounce ideas around or even critique one another's works.

True Story about Transition

Yes, I know this is a fiction site, and this certainly isn't my story, but I thought folks on here would find it interesting and don't know a better place to post it.

I am looking for a story

I am trying to track down a story, and could use some help.

The story featured "fey" like creatures who put people into the past in different bodies, among other things. The story focused on one guy who found himself in the body of a mute girl being hunted by these creatures, and Peter Pan was involved, as were aliens.

Anybody remember this story?

Assistance on a story or two

I've been having some difficulty getting my muse working, primarily due to extreme fatigue relating to shoulder pain (repair to a torn rotator cuff) and the disruption of life caused by flooding from Hurricane Harvey. I've been so physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausted that my muse seems to be on strike. So I've been doing a bit of reading, and I hit a story that is good, but the ending just didn't quite fit me. So my brain locked on a 'what if' - which got me to at least write something. But ....

Derp...!!!

I'm afraid the next chapter of my ongoing soap opera, Andi and Allie, will be slightly delayed. It was originally written some time ago as a belated follow up to 'Pet'. This particular chapter needed radical updating since it was originally begun about five or six years ago. To keep some sort of consistency in terms of a time line, changes needed to be made. Hopefully it will be ready sometime on Monday.

So...

So... My tale ambles on. I don't particularly like posting chapter by chapter. In 'Andi and Allie', the chapters tend to be small so that at least two must be posted as one. The problem rests in the continuity of the tale. Chapters in and of themselves can be taken out of context and give a jaded vision of the tale. But such is life I suppose.

Georgie Stone, transgender teen

I was so pleased to read that 17 year old Georgie Stone has just been announced as the State of Victoria's nominee for 'Young Australian of the Year'. At less than eleven years old she was granted permission by an Australian Family Court to take hormone blockers. As a result, and her subsequent appeals for people like her, young transgender Australians no longer have to go through the expensive court process to take blockers, although they still need to do so to get hormone treatment.

The Aftermath

So most everyone has gone home and the dust is starting to settle. We've not gone on the Honey Moon yet (that's in just under 2 weeks) but we are starting to find our slightly new routine.

For those that don't know, last Saturday (October 28th, 2017) CapturedByThePast and I officially (in both the eyes of the Church, and the state of NJ) tied the knot. It wasn't a big wedding or reception but for the most part, the people who mattered most to us were there.

The bills are paid, and for Amy (capturedbythepast) has started signing things with her new name.

Next TG Mixed Tape anthology

Hikaro and I are getting ready for the next TG Mixed Tape anthology. The deadline for submissions is 12 December 2017, and the theme is Winter holidays: Christmas, Hanukah, Hogmanay, New Year's Day, etc. Stories submitted don't have to fit the theme, they just have to have TG content (if only implicit).

Stories should ideally be between 1,000 and 2,500 words, but certainly under 4,000 words. Poetry and nonfiction pieces are also welcome.

Hello, everyone. Some of the older hands here in BCTS probably know me, but I’m sure most of the others don’t. That’s no wonder, since I haven’t been posting in a long, long while here. But I have something new. Finally.

On Waking Up in the Hospital

I had a recent talk with a long-time friend who is an RN at a hospital in my home town. She told me all of the proper hospital procedures that would be followed in the common trope: boy wakes up in hospital a girl

Among them:
-A person who has been "unconscious" for longer than an hour is not "unconscious" they are comatose. Not, "You were knocked out for two days" but, "You've been in a coma for two days."

In Hiding

So excited. The third of my Angels of Etain series of books is now available to buy from Amazon in Kindle and paperback formats. Although, because of the way Amazon works the paperback is a tad expensive so I recommend the Kindle version.

Halloween story on my website

Read the story today!

I thought I'd take a break from our regularly scheduled programing and do something a little special for Halloween. Yesterday, I rewrote 'Devil's Due' one of my old Mixed Tape Entries. It's more than double the length of the original and best of all the new version is now considered part of the official canon for my meridian-verse.

Witch's Mirror Out, New Amaya Coming

Well, Witch's Mirror is out and the outpouring of kudos certainly makes it seem I've done something right, which is gratifying. It was a joy to write and I really want to continue Ciara's adventures in the future.

We did have the last session of Airship Lost in the end, but we were down two people and the session ended on a cliffhanger. I'm a little hesitant about posting such a session but I'm working on it. If it's going to be too long between postings, I'll put it up. The spice must flow and all that.

explanation

Well I feel I owe everyone an explanation for things happening or not over the last week or so.

If you recall my Mum passed back in June, it would've been her 80th birthday on Tuesday so we thought it timely to spread her ashes today. I've had to organise some odd stuff over the years but this was a difficult one. It was her wish to end things on the NYM, her favourite place, Wheeldale.

Inquiring on the Site Demographics

Will a story that is very violent; traumatic even, do well here? Concern for possible youthful readers here gives me pause about whether it should be published on this site or at all? Not trying to rationalize an excuse for writing it, just being open.

Hugs, prayers, and positive vibes accepted.

Three hidden overlaying categories I wished someone had told me about ... (+Story Ideas)

Hey folks,

I know the title is a little clickbaity sounding, but I honestly can say that these categories eluded me for over a year. Resulting in frustration and even asshole behavior on my part. I am especially pissed of because the categories are appearing so obvious. Yet I somehow I took ages to figure them out and react to stories accordingly.

So what are they:

Would you miss me?

If you read my last blog

https://bigclosetr.us/topshelf/blog-entry/68921/being-anonym...

you will know I am going through a bad time right now.

As I've said I will not self harm, but laying on my back willing myself to die can not be healthy. J My Samsung J3 phone went south when I really needed it.
Guess it is time to write a story or something...

Looking for Advice

I've finally finished and turned over the Wildcats Book One to Erin for publishing on Amazon. It's ten chapters and 60,000 words. Hopefully, this will generate some funds for Big Closet.

I'm working on Book Two right now and hope to have it done very soon. It's about the same length. Book Three will follow.

I want to turn the story into a graphic novel to publish online.

Since this is just an idea, I was wondering if anyone out there has any experience with doing something like this and could share their thoughts.

Thanks for reading.

The Black Ring

Caution: 

Author: 

I came across this story over on Fictionmania and did not realise the author had actually posted it here :P This story actually intrigued me by it's plot elements of a mental illness well played and how others react to the MC. It is very different and well worth a read. The first chapter contains the shell of the story with a "hole" intentionally left in it. Parts 2 and 3 "fill the hole."

There is some cautionary stuff, but for most readers, I do not think this is a problem. I do not want to mention the elements, but it doesn't set me off.

Ewww...

Author: 

This chapter is actually the combination of three. Normally there is congruency between the chapters but the last one began so differently that I chose to capitalize the beginning of it. Although this chapter is quite drama heavy, and tissues were provided, the true drama has yet to begin!!! I hope you all enjoy is one. ;-)

Gaby rides again

Midweek already.

Its a busy week for me, lots of bike riding (180km so far), a visit to the doctor (apparently I'm in robust health but my heart rate is quite low), some writing and - well its exhausting being me! I've still got a night out, more riding, more writing and shopping to fit in before the weekend.

Mainly massive multiparts

Author: 

Just an observation which might end up seeming like a complaint;

I sometimes feel lost here, in the sense of "dying of thirst when water is all around".

I visit daily looking for an interesting story (I admit, I like the fluffier stuff), but I wonder sometimes how any new person visiting this site can get started when virtually everything on the front page is just a chapter in some huge novel.

It has taken me eight decades to find the truth.

I’ve long suspected and only recently realized, that anyone who does things that are different than the way I live my life . . . is wrong.

It would be great if I could cut you a break and allow for variances depending on your individual circumstances, but that would prove foolhardy and dangerous for both of us.

Simply put – everything you do that is not something I would do, so should be terminated immediately before it’s too late.

In the future, you should add one simply step to your decision-making process.

Goodbye! (Don't Worry)

Author: 

My wife has been away for three weeks. This has allowed Liz to come out to play. Crossdressing seems to have lost it's zest. And of course, passing was never going to be possible for a girl who was a linebacker in high school, and still looks the part, if somewhat heavier.

Crossdressing and haunting BCTS has been taking too much of my time. I did little else for the last three weeks! I guess I need to spend more time paying attention to my wife and farm, and to just get on with life!

Bad codes for Kindle/etc posts.

I think I've figured out why I've been so bothered about the constant posts for things 'for sale'.

It's not actually that they're being posted for sale. It's that they aren't actually using the codes that are _supposed_ to be there on the front page. I've found myself, more than once, thinking that it's an update, and finding out it's another "HEY, DOPPLER" or "KINDLE BOOK". - but it says 'SOLO' or 'Day Of The Week' instead.

So 11th Sun is about 90% of the way through its second draft. At that point posting here will go on hiatus for a couple of months. During that time I will be taking a break from thinking about it (month one) then working on the second draft (many more months) and sometime around there I'll start posting again.

During month one, with nothing to do, I'll be writing somethings else. I've been on a high school kick lately and I haven't found quite what I'm looking for, so I'm going to write it.

I've had a busy week on the bike despite the hidden 'help' from various weather systems!

In return he begins to develop a "Jock" type physique and his complexion clears up.

Or, there is just a shitty part of the story that you just don't like.

In 2000 I voted for W. My tendencies are quite liberal, but he seemed much better than more Clinton years via gore. This week I was reminded why I thought so highly of W. when he said the following.

We need to demand civil behavior.

The site and Erin really need your help. I just sent in 25 bucks and will probably send a few more after my own bills are paid for this month.

While Erin and the site really appreciate all the help many of you have given in the past, but things are not getting better financially. Erin has driven herself into debt so far that there seems to be no way out. The site needs a LOT of money to give us this wonderful resource and repository for our stories and blogs.

My new story

Hi everyone!

I just posted a new stand alone story. Relative Possessions.

I feel oblidged to say that it has nothing to do with my Goddess Stories. It is an old story I wrote a couple of years ago while my muse was taking a break. The story, in my mind, at the time was kind of "bleh" But after finding my inspiration and encouraged by some gentle nudging from Sammi, I revisited it and was able to rewrite it so that it is something I feel proud enough to share.

I hope you enjoy it.

We're sitting in Coll's and I'm into my second pint of Murphy's. Being partial to Murphy's and having internet made this a fair to middling chose. So this new chapter of And nd Allie is being posted between trips to the WC and trips to BC. I could only manage one rather weak pic but things being where they are...that is in the midst of nowhere...County Donegal...it's the best I can manage. This offering is actually a combination of three chapters. I would like to finish posting this tale before the next decade!!! Please excuse any weirdness in the editing.

Hello and welcome to my blog.

I will post important pieces of news on this blog but if you want the full experience the website is the place to be.

and I write this stuff for free!

had to go there

OK - time to reconnect, albeit slightly.

Yes, the next Julina is 'ready' - but not polished. It is currently sitting at 25,679 words and will probably end up being close to 30k by the time I polish...

Penny will help me decide how to break it all up. As the author, I find the 'parts' of it too short to be posted alone, but too integrated to just split at natural narrative gaps. The big crescendo to which it is building might be diluted if it takes a few chapters to get there.

These - and many other thoughts - have been racing through what passes for a brain sitting atop my spine.

I'm still here.

I'm still here though it's been a while. I'm going to shoot out a few one off's before I get back to "The Seven Deadlies", at least two short stories though I hope you like them...rather I hope they are substantive enough as appetizers.
One will be a body suit story, albeit the scientific approach I present will not be the instant pop and go type of bodysuit, think "Skin Deep" except with the blank suits.
The other will be a cute wink and nod with Fan Service towards a K-Pop singer whose gotten VERY popular as a host/co-host in Korean variety shows.

The latest offering is now up on Kindle. Search for Sisters, with the author name S.A.A. Calvert. It should also come up under 'Sussex Border Stories' in a couple of days.

New Halloween Story

So, while I'm editing and re-writing Hold the Salt, it struck me back when I wrote that one of my goals was to put out one Halloween-themed story or horror story a year. I never made this goal. This led me to pause my editing for three days to write a Halloween story for this year, I mentioned it in my last blog post.

This year, it happened.

I was born October 11, 1999, to the name Jonathan. Yes, I know my birthday just past, yes, I know my birthday is on national coming out day, and for the final yes, I am 18 and still in high school. Life for me growing up was normal, good, and loving. Funny, because all my stories end up the complete opposite.

A new villain is introduced in this part. He's not exactly much of a thinker this one, but wherever he goes a whole bunch of trouble is sure to follow.

Please take a minute to leave a comment. It really helps motivate me to continue!

Endless distractions

I finally managed to put up What Milsy Did #26 and that means it is time for yet another apology.

It's all Real Life, of course. I won't bore you with everything that has hit me but let me just say that some of it is coming from the generation before and some from the generation after.
