Thundering Force

I am a fan of change. This is what lead me to Big Closet. This is what lead me to write transgender stories.

This story is a not transgender. But, the story is about a character going through a radical change. A change which is arguably more radical than a change of gender. And there is some minor TG elements within the story. I cannot say who without spoiling much of the story.

This story is a work of Star Wars fanfiction set at the end of Star Wars Episode II. This is a Star Wars crossover with the events of Thors at the end of the Marvel Comics Secret Wars (2015) Saga.

Story Idea Suggestion of the Afterlife.

Story Idea Suggestion of the Afterlife.

First, Erin. I do not mean this idea as a downer, or in anyway negative. This is meant more of a constructive exercise.

Now, the last month in my personal life has been pretty bad. Crippling health issues and other problems. I am likely not going to die tomorrow. But, I am not going to see the average life expectancy.

Marvel's Loki Laufeyson has become a Godly Ranma Saotome

Marvel's Loki Laufeyson has become a Godly Ranma Saotome.

By Paul Cousins.

I got to thinking about this, and the more I think about it, the more it makes sense.

Ranma 1/2 is a series about a teenage marital artist that changed gender with hot and cold water. Hot for boy, cold for girl. Whom was born a boy, has many wacky adventures, and whom has suitors of both genders. It is a very funny series.

El Goonish Shive pointing out a rarely used GB sub-trope

Hello,

Today Dan Shive posted a comic on his EGS:NP section that was very funny, and was a scene, dealing with the gender bending genre that is rarely mentioned, let along discussed.

The comic can be found here: http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp.php?id=374

I found that comic to be hilarious.

The scene dealt with that two gender benders, in their female forms, not having any body hair, with the natural girl being clearly jealous for them not having to shave their legs, among other things.

Five Minutes to Eternity

A bittersweet story concerning the end of the world about to happen, due to an impending nuclear war, within the hour.

At such a time. In such circumstances. Some people prefer to make love until the end. Some to settle scores. Most try to be with those they care for. But, a few prefer to talk, and possibly make new friends.

Today is another day I decided not to kill myself.

Note: The poem below is my response to the poem, “The morning after I killed myself”, by Meggie Royer.

http://imgur.com/4swX4N1

My point being, that we must focus on cause and effect.

There is always a reason for someone committing suicide. Suicide can be over a minor reason. Or, a major reason.

But, if we only focus on the aftermath, and forget the reasons for these suicides, we do a disservice to both those whom have committed suicide, and those that are left behind.

After over 7200 pages! My BoM story is Finally Done!

After two years and two months, to the day. I have finished my part of the story, Badasses Of the Multiverse.

Note counting outlines and notes.

The story is 7233 pages long. Over 2.8 million words long.

The largest story project I have ever worked on. And I finally finished my story.

I hope you enjoy reading my story, as much as I enjoy creating it.
