Happiness and a Warm Gun

----------=BigCloset Retro Classic!=----------

★ Definitive Gemstone Story ★

Synopsis: As a young boy nineteen years ago, Cindy was the victim of a serial child molester. Now the man who did it is about to be released from prison. What does she intend to do about him; and how is she coping?

This is a stylistic change from my previous writings, a darker, leaner story. You've been warned! Parts of this story are autobiographical.

Story: This story deals with the continuing mental trauma of a victim of child molestation. While there are no depictions of child molestation, there are flashbacks that contain some details. If this sort of thing is upsetting to you, please do not read this story. All the people in this story are fictional, except for the sexual predator that started it all, may his soul rot in hell.

Turned around again


I haven't been around much lately, major health issues. So it seems like every time I log on something has changed. It was really a mess this last time and it took a lot of backing and forthing to get things looking halfway normal. Somewhere along the line the righthand column that lists all the other author's work has dissappeared. You know, when you are reading an author's story it will have the rest of that author's work listed on the righthand column. Gone. I also seem to have acquired a perm. link to Laura's Playground that I'd like to get rid of.

ISO Story

Reading about an accident locally where a little boy was run over while riding his bike and dragged under the car. It reminded me of a story about a little boy that was run over by an elderly neighbor. He's in bad shape but docs have to wait for his parents to return from England to get permission to basically perform SRS on the boy. The parents are caught up in the 9/11 aftermath with no flights being allowed in or out of the country. But it seems our little boy has some ideas of his own!


Some Decency In The Porn World

Blog About: 


Ran into this on fb. The day after Alexis Arquette died, a former boyfriend of hers started hawking a sex tape to various media sources. The porn media mega site xHamster paid $25,000 for it, and after insuring there were no other copies out there, destroyed them. I'm never going to be doing business with them, but isn't it nice that there are people out there willing to do the right thing even when it costs them a large chunk of money?

Thank you, gentlemen.


That kind of weekend

Well. it seems that several people are having that kind of a weekend, so I might as well throw another log on the fire.n I spent a good portion of early Sat. morning in the local ER. When it was all done with it seems I had a rip-roaring infection so they put me on a fresh bottle of saline to which they added a metric shitload of antibiotics and a hypo of morphine. While the antibiotics are probably the key to my long term health the morphine sure was nice!

This story is based in part on something that happened to my brother, I added the TG plotline.
Thanks to John in Wauwatosa and PB for their assistance, as always what is posted is my decision.

I paused eating to watch the girls, well some young and some not-so-young women as they buzzed around taking care of the morning rush. One saw me watching and flashed a quick smile before grabbing the next order from the counter to hand out the drive-thru window. Almost everybody knew me, I was there every morning. Either stopping by on the way to work for a sausage & egg biscuit or stopping in and eating scrambled eggs and hash browns when I wasn’t working.

Should anybody get a strange email from Lauren Travis, be very careful. I got one this evening purporting to be from her, saying she sent me a private message that requires me to click on a link to read the message. Now, call me suspicious, paranoid, whatever, but I'm not going to click on that link. If Lauren sees this she might want to do some checking on her computer.

Changed location of commenter's name and the date

I've noticed the in the comments the poster's name and the date/time the post was made has been shifted from where it was under the title of the comment over to the right side of the screen. Having had a few years to get used to the original location I can't say I'm fond of the change and I wonder why this was done.

Edit: Not just comments, it look like just about evreything has this change: stories, blogs, etc.

The straw that broke the ass's back

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 


Haven't been on BC much lately, too much turmoil in my life. Lost my job and have been preparing to move so I might get one doing basic factory labor for less than half what I'm used to making I don't mind working, but my health issues have been none too stable for the last year, and this isn't going to help. And the move also means closing up my house (MY house, bought and paid for!) and moving in with my brother, so I'm losing a significant amount of personal freedom as well.

German in Rough Waters

About the German usage in Rough Waters: PB was under the impression that all the translations had been double-checked by a friend in Germany, who runs a German language TG story site. But apparently some fell through the cracks. For this I am sorry. I was made aware of that fact a week or so ago, and just today received the corrected German for RW 7.

Driving to work this morning, the traffic sucked, as it usually does in the Metroplex. I made up some time once I got past the inevitable fender-bender that had slowed everybody down; and arrived at work only a few minutes late. Joe, my supervisor, was waiting for me when I walked in.

Principal’s outing of gay student roils Fla. town

Wow! I thought I'd check the news before turning in, and I found this on MSNBC. Two things are striking, the first being how much this parallels the story PB wrote in All Things Denied; and the second being the divide in generations. The kids are accepting while their parents are not. I think that bodes well for the future, things are (slowly) getting better.

TG ANTM Contestant

From US Magazine: One of the 14 girls who will compete on the new season of America's Next Top Model — which returns to The CW on September 3 — is transgender.

"My cards were dealt differently," Isis, a 22-year-old former receptionist, tells Us Weekly exclusively in its new issue, on newsstands now.

There was a segment on ABC Primetime tonight about women with Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (AIS). Unfortunately, I forgot all about it. The video is available on the ABC downloads website at ABCnews.go.com but I lack a highspeed connection. However, I might be able to gain short access and download it.

Dear Abby - Boy w/long hair

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 


Interesting letter in Dear Abby this weekend. It's from a person in Tennessee who's concerned about the son of some prominent townspeople. Seems the boy, who is in fifth grade (12 years old), has not been allowed to get his hair cut and is being teased about looking like a girl. Now, this would have been heaven for most of us, but the writer terms it child abuse.

While wandering the web tonight, I stopped by the Skepchick website. This website is crewed by some wonderfully independent thinkers with a knack for finding and writing about things I find interesting and/or amusing. While browsing through the various bits, I came across a link to another blog, by Greta Christina.

Pregnant TG man to appear on Oprah

From Yahoo News:

A transgender man who kept his female reproductive organs despite his transformation is now five months pregnant and will appear on Oprah Winfrey's television show, the talk show said on Tuesday.

"I'm a person and I have the right to have my own biological child," Thomas Beatie, of Bend, Oregon, said in excerpts from the show, which airs on Thursday.

Poem in Dear Abby column

There is a wonderful poem written by a 12 year old girl in today's Dear Abby column. It's called "Don't Judge" by Lealia Xiong from Guilford, Conn. The poem can be read in it's entirety online here:


Small Signs

Something interesting happened today when I went out to eat, at one of those chain steak/buffet places. As is usual on a Sunday it was mostly filled with families, three generations or more.

I was seated next to an extended family who were there along with the grandmother. Three little girls, about 10, 8 and 6 or 7, something like that. The kids were playing and cutting up a bit, not dreadfully so, but a bit annoying. Then the oldest came back from where the three of them had gone off to, and Grandma asked "What's wrong, did the girls run you off?" Well, my head popped up at this and I looked again. Pretty pale blonde hair in a long shag with bangs, pierced ears with a small crystal/fake diamond in each ear, non-descript unisexual clothing - jeans, t-shirt, and sneakers. Could this be a boy?

‘It’s OK to be gay,’ Dear Abby says

Columnist also supports gay marriage, will be honored by advocacy group

SAN FRANCISCO - For years, rumblings have surfaced on the Internet, conjecture about her casual references to “sexual orientation” and “respect.”

Now, Dear Abby is ready to say it flatly: She supports same-sex marriage.

Gender & sex; pheromones & mice

I ran across a Reuters story on Yahoo News the other day, telling how researchers had changed the sexual prefences of female mice by altering the functionality of a certain organ in them that processes pheromones, the vomeronasal organ.

Beautiful gowns, gotta see!

For those of you that love a lovely gown like I do, you've got to watch the PBS special "Celtic Woman - A New Journey". I loved the original special from two or so years ago and bought the DVD; so when I saw the new special on tonight I had to tune in.

Let me tell you, those women are wearing some of the most beautiful gowns I've seen in a long time! If you love to dress up, or dream about dressing up, you'll want to see these gowns! And the music these women perform is absolutely fantastic! Five singing angels and a beautiful blonde fiddle player, it's well worth the time.

Discovered - A Wonderful Author


I was scoping out my favorite TG comics earlier this evening, one of which is Jade Gordon's Lean On Me. I've always found her artwork to be lovely, and since she's currently needing some commissions, I thought it might be time for me to get some drawings for my K&K series. Following some links in an effort to see if I could afford her, I went to Lulu.com to look at the book cover she did for a story titled Fool For Love by Lisa Lees. The Lulu page has a link to a preview of this story, and I was captivated immediately. This woman can write!

Thanksgiving - Counting My Blessings

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 


Today is Thanksgiving Day, and I'd like to take a moment to count the blessings I have been given.

First off is my health. Some very dedicated doctors have kept me going far longer than even the most optimistic projections when I was a baby. Now, there are some who might argue that it's not that good a thing, but I'm not complaining! So Thank You, Dr. Lawrence, Dr. Miller, and especially Dr. Rebecca, my current physician. I suppose I should also thank the various pharmaceutical companies, but my substantial cash "donations" should take care of that! ;-)

KARI! - Part 1

Synopsis: It's been a year since the end of TWINS, and Kari and Kathy have settled into suburban domestic bliss, where the most exciting thing is a trip to the mall. Come follow the heroines of TWINS on a typical girl's day out, the ending is going to be anything but boring.

This is the first part of the sequel to TWINS, which you need to have read to understand this.

This story is incomplete. However this first part can stand by itself.

This Is So Wrong!


I just found the following news story on Yahoo:

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch pedophiles are launching a political party to push for a cut in the legal age for sexual relations to 12 from 16 and the legalization of child pornography and sex with animals. The party said it wanted to cut the legal age for sexual relations to 12 and eventually scrap the limit altogether.
