UK is in lockdown

Boris Johnson announced this evening that the UK is in lockdown with immediate effect. I was due to move house on Thursday. Everything is in boxes. It looks like I'm going to have to stay here and pay for a house 50 miles away as well with no prospect of selling this house.
Plus, local Government in the UK charges double on empty properties.
Just to add insult to injury.

Lucky girl

There's more than one way to be lucky. Maybe, there's more than one way to be a girl?

The Caution is for a slightly oblique reference to self harm. For American readers a Stanley knife is what you might call a 'box cutter'.

Another part of "Virtually Feminine"

I have another part of "Virtually Feminine" for you this week. My muse was kicking me to make some progress, so I finished this.
I broke a tooth today so I was in two minds about publishing it.

I can't see me having another chapter ready next week. Maybe a standalone or something next week?

I've posted the final part of A Christmas Party

I've posted the final part of my story today. It's longer than the other parts and includes some things people have been asking about... including a seduction, but I've tried not to be too explicit.

When I got to the end I was going to put "The End", but it feels more like "A Beginning". There's a lot of un-answered threads still and places these characters could go. But I'm drawing a line under everything for now.

I'm moving house soon and I have some other stories backed up. But I'm hoping to write about Bobbi and Jordan some more this year.

A Christmas Party - part 8

Bob gets invited to his office's Christmas Party. His colleagues convince him that life is more fun in a dress.

In this part; Bobbi and Jordan meet Bobbi's Mum. Bobbi makes some decisions and learns some things.

This is the final part, for now. It's not the end of Bobbi's story, I think, but it's a good point to draw a line under things.

A Christmas Party - part 5

Bob gets invited to his office's Christmas Party. His colleagues convince him that life is more fun in a dress.

In this part; Bobbi finds it's not so easy to give up being female and he gets to meet Jordan's father.

A Christmas Party

I've just posted the first part of a new story. I started writing it last year, but you know how slow I can be.
I have another 6 parts complete and the 8th and final part is well under way, so I hope I won't leave people disappointed and impatient again.
As always, I would welcome any comments, good or bad. How can I improve if you don't tell me what you honestly think?

Merry Christmas :-)

sorry about my new posting

Sorry about my latest posting 'Beyond the grave'. It's a short story for Halloween but I ran out of time and I haven't had a chance to proofread it as I normally would.
I thought it would be pointless to release it at Christmas though. Oh, and being a Halloween tale it's a bit dark in places with some triggers. It is a ghost story, after all...

Now that I've made my choice, what does that mean? How do I start to come to terms with what that means, and what happens when my ex finds out?

This chapter starts telling the story of how I came to a point where I had to make a decision about my life. I’m sure you guys are way ahead of me, considering where I’m posting this story, but believe me when I tell you it wasn’t that obvious to me…

Kathryn knew my secret. Which was two people more than I was comfortable with. I was more comfortable staying in denial and convincing myself that it was all pretend in the game I was playing.

So, in the interests of full disclosure, and for those of you who haven't read the rest of my story so far… Hi, my name was Andy and I am a trans-woman called Cathy.

Stan Lee has passed away

I'm so sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings again, and I don't know his views on gender issues, but Stan Lee was a great influence on my life and my characters. It so sad to see another of my heroes pass away. I'm sure some of you, like me, lost yourself in comic books with their larger than life heroes that were a little more human than those that came before.
Just thought some of you might like to know the news. He was 95.

Virtually Feminine - Part 5 - Passing time

I'm not quite sure how best to continue telling this story. There were so many parallel streams of my life set in motion after my birthday, each of them so separate from each other that they almost felt like they were happening to different people at the same time like some weird version of synchronicity.

Caution added for references to rape and suicide - there's nothing graphic here but they are part of the story.

Jez gets closer to Fli. In the 'Real' world Jez's alter-ego goes on a date.

Oh, and the caution is a little over cautious, but I'd rather be that way than surprise someone. No one actually touches anyone else, in the real world...

Virtually Feminine - Part 2 - Falling

Sorry for the delay in writing this second chapter, RL involving my mother-in-law and a dog got in the way, but that's another story :-). Jez falls for Fee some more in this chapter.

Virtually Feminine


by
Morgan Philips

I wrote this story about personal growth through interaction in a Virtual World largely in response to Dorothy Colleen’s challenge to write something about a 40+ transition. I’m not sure it will get that far, but the characters are the right age at least.
I set some scenes in Second Life, as that’s an environment I am familiar with. I was going to go through afterwards and edit all the references to some generic VR World but I think it gives it a more realistic feel by using the names and jargon from a "real’’ virtual world that some of you may be familiar with. Of course, I don’t own Second Life ™ , it’s a registered trademark belonging to Linden Lab. I’m not associated with them in any way and the views and people described only bear a passing resemblance to anyone real or virtual. Alll copyrights and trademarks belong to their respective owners

This Christmas spare a thought for those who choose to help others. They have their own lives and issues that may run parallel to those they help.

(Warnings are for some bad language and references to "off screen" violence and possible sexual assault)

There's something magical about being witness to a new love starting and some couples are so right for each other that you can't help but be caught up in their excitement, even if your own life is uncertain.

Love and Zombies

Life is short, sometimes. Does true love ever die? This story is very dark, it came to me in a dream that should have been a nightmare if it wasn’t for the strange look of peace on the heroine’s face…
Sorry this is a little rough but this is the only day it makes sense to post this here. It's the first time I've been brave enough to post anything, enough of the waffle, on with the story...
