April Fool's!

I was walking towards the bookstore where we hosted our usual Saturday evening D & D game. It was a beautiful spring day--April first, to be precise, and I was once again acting in my role of Dungeon Master. I had just rounded the corner to the shopping plaza when a strange imp pulled on my sleeve, dragging me into a tiny curio shop in the corner.

Sweet Sixteen Again! 01


Sweet Sixteen Again!

Part 1

This is a sequel to It's Great Being Sweet Sixteen!

It's almost time for sweet sixteen again! This is number fifty-one!

My friends were telling me that it's really number fifty-two because I turned sixteen for the first time way before the turn of the millennium. I might have turned sixteen way back then, but it wasn't sweet!

It's Great Being Sweet Sixteen!

It's Great Being Sweet Sixteen!

Tomorrow is my Sweet Sixteen! The first day of the rest of my life!

Being sixteen is like, so kewl. I get to do things with my boyfriend. If I was fourteen, people would look at us weird. I mean, I'd still be cute and everything, but they would look at him like he's a pervert or something.

At sixteen, I'm still real cute, but I'm old enough for all that fun stuff. He's like twenty, so he's an expert. He knows how to make me scream.

He says that he's too cool, but I know how to make him scream too.

The Book of Darwin: Chapter 2

The Rager's Night March is over. Caitlin's found some peace, but the volatile girl's still leaning very heavily upon her friends for support. Christmas shopping with supervillains and heroes and why is there a Reality TV crew there?

But all in all it's going to be an Outcast Christmas, and then you all can watch the celebration as the Reaper ushers in the death of the year.

The Book of Darwin: Chapter 1

It's Christmas vacation, and Outcast corner is headed to Australia! With their vacation in Darwin planned and transport secured on a VERY heavily modified Hero Team transport plane, our intrepid heroes will discover the answers of many questions that have been alluded to before. What is the past of the Artificers? What remnants of the Five-Fold Court fall across the landscape? What is the Dream? Who is that adorable little boy who insists that spined raptors are appropriate riding animals??? What happens when Jericho learns of what nightmares haunt Caitlin in her waking hours that were born under the Australian sky?

I offer you, The Book of Darwin.

This is a Whateley Academy Canon Story

Call the Thunder: Chapter 7

Sometimes, when like hands you lemons, it's time to retaliate. With Imperious trying to get his claws on Caitlin and trying to intimidate Razor and Jericho, Razor finds himself involved in his OWN combat final... and the final chapter of Call the Thunder.

This is a Whateley Academy Canon Story

Call the Thunder: Chapter 6

It's not easy, being an Outcast. Today, it seems Caitlin will finally be going through her Combat final. So will Fey! Just... not against each other. And annoyingly, Imperious seems to think it's time to make his play to take the Artificer.

Call the Thunder: Chapter 4

Caitlin's trying desperately to cope, Razorback & Jericho are hunting to cause trouble and today is finally Diamondback's Combat Final.

What is the Crash, and why are the Outcasts in it?

Why is Diamondback pitted against Hekate?

Call the Thunder: Chapter 3

Lions and tigers and Voodoo-Wolves, oh my!

With the end of the battle Jericho returns to Whateley while Caitlin's bottled-up emotions begin to bleed and boil over. Sometimes you need to get whacked over the head for common sense to impose itself back onto your life.

Call the Thunder: Chapter 2

Combat Finals have begun. The Outcasts and their friends prepare for their time in the wringer while Heyoka makes a mockery of her opponent. Unfortunately between the "Voodoo Wolves" that Jericho named, and the various weird things on campus, it's easy to lose track of what's going on.

Call the Thunder, Chapter 1

It was that time dreaded by every teen, when the boys become men, and the women become women. Or maybe it was just the Special Hell created by the Whateley staff to gauge the students' capacity to survive an assault by people who might hate mutants. In any case, the Outcasts and Team Kimba are forced to face the dreaded event: Combat Finals for the first time!

Yet Another Day as an Outcast

Life sucks when you're a rager, especially when you're a rager on a training team called Outcast Corner at Whateley Academy. Between bullies, idiots and Gunnery Sergeant Oscar Bardue, Jack Carlyle, formerly Erin has to put up with Grunts, Goobers and putting up with one of the "Pretties" that Jericho seems to insist he and Diamondback need to meet.

Signed, Sealed and Delivered An Edited Re-post Part 1

Signed, Sealed, and Delivered

By Cathy_t_

This was my very first attempt at writing anything for others to read. The idea for the story is mine but the inspiration for doing it at all comes from two wonderful angels I met on the net one dark night in my life. They stopped me from doing something very stupid that night and I would like to dedicate this story to them. To Prue and Neri. Without their help and encouragement this story would not exist. Nor would I.

Once Upon a Time

 

Once Upon a Time

Larry ran out of time.

While I'm not writing... This was the first story I wrote for a Creative Writing class I took in college back around '92 or so. I don't remember. The second story I wrote for the class is also on BCTS called here the original Wish Lash, so this is a pretty early effort. I only made a few minor changes to the story.

Someone said not long ago that the only stories on BCTS had sex changes. Well, this one doesn't. I no longer have the original file so I just OCR'd the document printed on my old trusty Epson MX-80 so I could have it in electronic form again. I thought I'd share it here for what it's worth. I was working at a semi-conductor manufacturer at the time, so I was trying to sound all techie. -- Ed

Her Fondest Wish 1

Ariana has two wishes. First, because she was born assigned the wrong gender, her fondest wish is that she could be a fully functioning woman with a vagina and uterus. Secondly, she wants to be a little girl because her first childhood sucked, and because her fondest kink is to be "molested" by a loving adult. In this story, she meets someone who makes both her wishes come true.

“All strapped in and comfortable, my dear?”

I nodded. “I’m ready, Javier.”

Mind Rider


Mind rider

Where does one person end and another begin? Usually not a difficult question to answer as each mind is confined to the brain it inhabits, but as our ingenuity enables us to overcome the barriers nature would impose on us, so we discover there are unforeseen consequences.

Nietzsche famously said that when you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you. I'm not sure this is what he meant by it, but it fits. Physics predicts that you can't observe something without changing it, and as you exert an influence on it, so it responds by exerting one on you.

Not in any way a Valentines story, but it's finished, so it might as well go up.

Ashley's Song

glowing-orb.jpgAshley's Song
by Anon Allsop

This is one of my older stories - I knocked the dust off it and decided it could be placed here on Big Closet.

The ancient woman sat quietly in her rocking chair and looked back at me, her watery eyes unwavering. I looked from her to the little girl, then back to her again. I felt terrible for them; this was the part of the job that I hated.

"Mrs. Patrick...ma'am, I'm really sorry to have to tell you this but..." My eyes looked at the innocent face of the little girl. "Uh... this would be easier if she weren't here." My voice was shaking with emotion.

The old woman looked at the girl and asked her to go inside for a while, "Go on." She said gently guiding the child toward the door. She waited until the door closed and turned back toward me saying, "Okay Brian."

Infelftration

Bonnie Tyler is not the only one who needs a hero. Sometimes even those who seem equipped to handle everything on their own need one just as much. Maybe they don't need him to be strong, fast or fresh from the fight, but they probably don't want him to be a zero.

Fortunately, it is easy to turn a zero into a hero. First you brace the bottom left of the Z, then tie a rope to the top bar and pull until it rotates to form an N. Now reinforce both upright bars, before disconnecting the middle connector. Take the connector and cut it to fit between the two bars. Lastly, fasten the newly sized bar midway up the two vertical bars to form an H. There you go, you now have a H ero.

I would like to thank my Beta Readers, for their input and ideas. I'd also like to thank all of you for giving me a place to share my work.
Last but not least, I'd like to thank my lovely Muse, Dani for everything she is.

Intended Consequences

(inspired by Valentine's "Unintended Consequences")

The advent of cheap genetic testing had made many changes in society. The biggest came when a overly conservative right-wing political staffer came across a demonstration device at a convention. It simp[le checked the "sex" chromosomes and reported them.

The politician the staffer worked for had been fighting a non-discrimination measure in the state legislature. As usual, he was calling it a "bathroom bill" and claiming it would let perverts invade women's restrooms.
