My Darling Honey - Theme

Please take the time to listen to Tresenella's newest single, My Darling Honey. The theme for our collective works about a bunch of gay and trans bugs living their lives. She does unbelievable work on the art for all of my stories, it'd mean the world to me if you supported her other music too.

You can listen basically everywhere on your preferred store.

One Dozen Roses

One Dozen Roses cover.jpg

Join a dozen Roses as they attend the SWEET Conference (South Western Exposition for the Embetterment of Transwomen/Transpeople, depending on who you ask.) Rose Gallagher is a registrar for the conference and notices that there are 12 Roses in attendance. On a whim, she contacts them and suggests a meeting of the Roses to share a bit about their choice of the name Rose.

Seven authors collaborate on one story to tell us about

Helping Doppler Press rise

Doppler Press has had some nice success to start off. Heather O'Malley's 300 Rains, Lana Lee's Suit Yourself and Sue Brown's Soccer Girl have all hit best seller status. Katie Leone just published Worth Fighting For and that is doing okay for us too. But there are things that the Big Closet community can do to really help not only increase our visibility on Amazon, but drive traffic (more readers for all our authors and perhaps a few new authors to post stories to boot) to the site.

The Gowns - A dream's fulfillment

At Drea's suggestion from JessicaC

Jay had a way years earlier kissed Billy as they were wrestling as boys often do but without the kiss.

"What did you do that for, yuck" Billy asked?

"You're the one who said best friends were way better than making over girls who don't understand," replied Jay.

It was truer in Billy's mind than Jay knew. Billy was at least a year and a half older than Jay. He knew his affection for this tender boy was unusual and not understood by many. Jay was ten then and in fourth grade and Billy was in sixth.

New DarkRealms Resource

Back in the early days of The DarkRealms Universe (when we'd only been introduced to a couple of vampires), I sensed that it had the potential to expand and introduce us to Lots of Characters. So, rather than attempting to write a story (which knowing my writing speed you'd probably see sometime never!), I decided to create a Wiki to hold information on the people, places and events connected with Ravencrest.

So here it is: The DarkRealms Universe Wiki.

In what order do the Comics Retcon Universe stories occur?
I love reading the stories but what happened, when?
Sometimes the characters are talking about something that happened in another
story and I scramble to find it.

"Random Solos"

Forums: 

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

After several years of being and avid and almost daily BC reader, I have just discovered the power of the "Random Solo " feature.
Typically I would just scroll down the main page story list looking for a new addition that looked interesting.
I also checked out the random solos but didn't click the little "more" at the bottom. This "more" button opens up a
long list of stories that I have overlooked in the past. It's increased my reading pleasure greatly and re-leaved
my frustration of starting a serial story and having to wait for added post.

Music

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Hello, I'm trying to compile some music and would love to get some help!

Think girly, feminine, empowering. That which to mince or sashay to, wail down the hairdryer to, shake your hips to. That to bring out the diva within. Even music which is masculine in a very tongue in cheek way can emphasize femininity, especially in contrast to the madeup reflection in the mirror.

Of thus far;

ABBA — Dancing Queen
ABBA — Fernando
ABBA — Gimme Gimme Gimme
ABBA — Happy New Year
ABBA — Mamma Mia
ABBA — Money Money Money
ABBA — Take A Chance On Me
ABBA — Waterloo

I am shore your pleased to no.
Its letter perfect awl the way.

Comment at a time story

This idea will probably crash and burn, but you never know...

OK, the premise is simple: read this, read any comments below, then add a comment (somewhere between a clause and a paragraph in length) to continue the story. The characters and plot etc. are all made up as we go along - just don't reply to yourself (and if by some miracle it gets popular, wait for two comments after your latest addition before adding more) :)

Agnes and His Brothers

I ran across "Agnes and His Brothers" while poking around the Netflix site. It's a German film about 3 siblings (one being a transgendered woman) trying to find happiness. The movie is more than a bit strange with many of the characters behaving quite badly, and I can't say I really understood some of the elements of Agnes's story within the movie all that well. There are some darkly humorous and absurd moments. Agnes is well accepted by her family and by the people she comes in contact with. I thought the male actor that plays her did a credible job.

trying to locate a story

I have been trying to locate a serial story. The only things that I remember are, it is set in England, a young boy lives with his mother in a coach house on or next to a large estate. A girl his age moves in to the estate with her affluent father and encurages the boy to dress as a girl. Any help locating this would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Abby Came Through Today

In Dear Abby's column today (05/27 - second item) "Nervous in Northern California" asked if she should tell her employer that a person that she had already recommended for a job is transgendered. Check out Abby's answer: http://www.arcamax.com/dearabby/s-551129-469043
