looking for a particular story


I remember reading a story a while ago but unfortunately didn't save it and now i can't find it

bits i remember,

an around teenage boy saw a dress in a window of a boutique and became obsessed with it
owner of boutique convinced him to wear it and go to a salon

as payment owner convinced/blackmailed the boy into participating in a parade on a float, and then attend a ball/dance at some sort of community centre

unfortunately i don't even remember if the story was on this site or another, if anyone has a clue i would be very greatful


Code for the bathroom

Blog About: 


Went to go shopping at my local Safeway after my electrolysis today. When I got out of the car, I realized I should have used the bathroom before I left electrolysis. I was wearing a knit white top, a blue print skirt and some light tan sandals. I had my usual make up for electrolysis; mascara and a light pink lipstick. In the electrolysis building they are used to seeing trans folk in the restrooms. At Safeway not so much.

There's going to be no chapter update this week. I do have the next chapter finished---Ch.3 is ready to go---but I've made no headway on the story at all last week. Suffice to say, the last few days of the week were hell. I had to deal mostly with a selfish bitch of a friend who wants everything her way and won't let anyone else contribute. I know its a game and all but when someone WANTS to do everything in said game and get's pissed off when she can't...its ridiculous. "I feel worthless" -_-.

Father's day is kinda weird for me.

Blog About: 


Father's day is always kinda weird for me.

I lost my dad so young I dont remember him, and my stepdad was a horrible abusive person I could never call "dad".

But my mom did her best for me, my brother protected me, and my grandfather gave me a positive role model for men.

Then there is the fact that I am a father, even though I have felt more like a girl than a boy for 90 % of my life, and have finally embraced and integrated that girl into myself and let her become the woman she should have always had been.

Like I said, Father's day is weird for me ...


I seem to spend my life doing this lately, apologising that is. I had. Hoped to post you both new Gaby and a new Trixie today but stuff hasn't gone as I thought - no internet time for Maddy today. Both will now go up on Wednesday instead.

This change to plans is due to both UK Fathers day and a trip to visit Mum. Definitely a day of mixed emotions and I must admit some depressed thoughts now i'm home. I'm to say the least in a bit of a trough at the moment, a Churchillesque Black Dog.

daughter gave me


I will qualify this post first off, I am 55 years young and 13 plus years post op. I am also a gym rat that works on her figure and my weight. Today my daughter gave me fashion advice that women my age don't and shouldn't wear what she termed booty shorts, no matter how good we may look. I do admit they were a bit tight but that's how I wanted them, but not painted on tight, no camel toe showing.


I edited the LGBT Wikipedia site to emphasise that LGB references were for Sexuality whereas TIQ were primarily for Gender. The amendments lasted nearly 20 minutes before they were removed. I'll try to rephrase it. If it is removed again (and again) perhaps I'll begin to think perhaps there are those who don't like the Sexuality / Gender split to be emphasised.
Comments welcome.

Psyren's redemption - Sappira plummets - Read for free now

To those that read the blog on my site. I got my desktop up and running again, (yay!). So, there should be any future problems getting Psyren up (knock on wood).

Sapphira's flight from Garos takes an unexpected turn when he finds his concentration slip and he begins to plummet to the ground. Will he escape almost certain death or will this be his end?

Oot and aboot...

Blog About: 


Lately I've gotten a bit of contract labor that has me out-of-doors cleaning up around campgrounds and a local boat launch ramp... Where I live is heavy with poison oak and ivy... being out and about doing what I've been doing means I've been all up in the poison oak and ivy! So I'm feeling somewhat good about earning some immediate cash, but I'm also suffering somewhat due to being all up in the poison oak especially. I didn't see any poison ivy but suspect it is there too, so sort of a toss up for days as far as what I'm feeling....

Doing things for myself

Went for an appointment today, with no attendant. I'll be doing this more and more in the future, Still haven't figured out how to dress myself, that comes later. Lately I've been very depressed, to the point of thinking the unthinkable. The reasons I didn't do it a long while back still hold true, I am very aware how much it hurts the people we leave behind.

Trixiebell Heartswoon

Just a quick note.

Well today we have silly gale force winds with storm Hector so i've had to put off today's bike ride. Pity as it's otherwise a nice sunny day - with a following wind (ha ha) i'll get out a bit later for a couple of hours..

Anyhow, due to that i've been sat writing and the current lump of Trixie is now complete! It may get posted on Sunday if I get the opportunity so keep an eye out.

So now i'll crack on with Gaby book 23 - with luck the first bit will be done before the end of next week.

Ta ta for now

I have signed a contract with Doppler for "what if."

What if will now appear as an ebook to help Erin and the otheres with the kitty. So when they give me the word it will disappear from the free stories.

Sorry, but I hope some of you will get a copy and help fund BCTS with that. Unfortuatey that is all I can do to help, but there are some other books cooking, last years NaNoWriMo novel: "The job that changed my life" is coming soon (as paperback and ebook on smashwords) and if they are happy with it, a 200K+ words crime novel, possibly on Doppler. The NaNoWriMo novel I had already committed to smashwords before.

The story behind “The Best Damn Thing”

First off,
I apologize for placing small snippets of the story; but it’s coming to me in pieces that I want to try and share.

Thank you for everyone who read my last blog post and responded to it.

Thank you to everyone who is reading the story in its bit by bit format.

snakes and ladders

Just wanted to give a shout-out to Bailey Summers' "Snakes and Ladders".

Its an unapologetically romantic story, originally started in honor of one of our late writers here, Wren Phoenix. It has a few references to sexual abuse in one of the early chapters, but otherwise, its been a sweet story with elves, dragons, and much more.

here is a link to the title page, should you wish to try it out:

Drain the Swamp

Someone said the other day that in the current political climate it is becoming harder and harder to say anything that doesn’t sound like a slur against one party or the other.

I sat down this morning to write a blog about contributions. I’d decided to base the blog on the question, “What could Erin be doing if she wasn’t constantly forced to spend her time fund-raising?”

10 - A new "undesirable classes" story coming soon.

Hey writers and readers of TBC,

after two long writing sessions today I am finally done with "A Tale Of Two Dolls".
It is the third story in my "undesirable classes" universe.

This time there will be more action again, but as the other two stories, it has a unique focus on itself.
Now I finished the raw version and edited it.
Meaning I checked for grammar and spelling mistakes to the best of my ability.
Usually, I post a story at this stage.

Melanie E.'s Fairy Kiss-and-Tale Story Contest: Results!

It's been a week, and huzzah! The votes are in!

All the stories in the contest did quite well, but two in particular managed to grab the most thumbs-up from our readership, and those two were:

Cursed, by Nuuan

How a bout of psychosis brought my muse back

Hi there everybody. My name is Jamie (also lovingly called "hey you!"), and I found my muse after 6 years or so without it thanks to my brain's misfiring. I'm being nitpicky about my first story here, so give me a week or so, and I'll have a decent chapter for you all.

Also, I am one of Erin's little birdies, so if you need something in the middle of the night, I tend to be awake :)

Sam had her grad tonight

Blog About: 


Well, my mom and I went to my daughter Samantha's graduation ceremony tonight, and it was pretty good. Sam is recovering nicely from her surgery, and looked very beautiful in her grad dress.

But, Sharon decided to introduce me to the other parents at our table as "Sam's Dad. He wears women's clothes, but is a good person anyway."

I believe my response showed my level of sophistication and maturity.

I stuck my tongue out at her.

Ah well, it was a good night regardless.

Sixteen feet of steel - a very strong commendation

For those of us who enjoy epic fantasy (LOTR, Game of Thrones, etc.) might I suggest if you haven't read the ongoing "Sixteen feet of steel" episodes you are missing an absolute treat (all 285,000 words to date).

Bailey is prolific and talented author and extremely worthwhile reading.


Resources on voice training?


I will admit to practicing a number of the many YouTube tips on training a feminine voice in the car during my daily commutes.

I think it also fair to admit that such practice may go a teesy bit beyond simple research for my stories (which it most certainly is for as well).

A stumble in trying to portray a realistic change of voice through only training is something that I never considered before... a simple cough or act of clearing one's throat, which seem to tear down the illusion more than anything. So...

Special Offer

Following Commentator's comment on my last post, I have spent the last couple of days working out whether I can do something special for you all and it turns out that I can.

I have put the first three Angels of Etain books into one big fat omnibus edition available as an ebook from Amazon for just £4.99. That's a saving of over four pounds on the individual sales prices.

It may take a few days to reach the shelves, Amazon can do that sometimes but it's on its way.

I hope some of you find this helpful.

Love as always


Maybe a little help?

So, my latest story is out, and admittedly I should have split it in two. Perhaps, what I had thought of as my "style", should have had an editor fix it? I don't want my writing to be like it just came out of an English Composition class, so maybe somewhere between? I wanted it to portray speakers that were not English or US folk.

It is obvious that my High School English teacher would be having a fit.

Or can it be that the readership just did not want normal, nonviolent Middle Easterners?

That feeling...

I had that feeling again today.

It’s one I’ve had since fourth grade...or maybe even before that-the one of finding a high point, anywhere and just jump off it.
There are days that I stay indoors and do nothing to just let the voices pass by...they have really good ideas sometimes.

Well, good is relative to the time that the rest of the world seems to be going to Hell.
And I know it’s never “really” is (if you ask people around me)
But I feel it.
And, yes, I hate it.

Trying to track down a story

I'm a new member to this forum so please bear with me...

I am working my way through 'Gene's Story' by Karen Lockhart in which she makes reference to a story where, I quote:

'Another one I liked was about entertainers on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean. A trio of girls needed a replacement singer, so a male cousin was talked into masquerading as a female.

I was wondering if anyone could identify that story/author for me.

Many thanks in advance

New Release - The Evangelist

It's been a long time coming but part one of the American Angel trilogy is now available for sale on Amazon.

A rapist starts to prey on transgender women in Bristol and Detective Inspector Gregg DeSilver is put in charge of the case.

His opponent is good, very good and the only way to unmask him is to look into the past but that is only the beginning.

Can DeSilver solve the case or will he need a little help from the Angels?


Yet Another Stupid Computer Question


I am ready to get rid of a computer whose HD is in the imminent failure mode but still sorta works. It seems that MS Word no longer allows you to straight up delete files. What should I do before I get rid of it? I'll likely give it to someone who wants to attempt to put a new HD in it. I am told that getting at the HD on this machine is nigh on impossible without breaking the display. Its got an INTEL i chip in it, so he wants to save it.

I marveled that I had been able to get through the rather narrow door between the two cabins with a butt like that. I turned around and looked at it over my shoulder, pulling my hair out of the way because it was long enough to obscure the view.

Heya folks

Thank you all for your responses to my editing request - once I get myself sorted i'll be in contact with the chosen ones, if you don't hear from me it's not for any reason other than the numbers!

Well my ride yesterday went very well, thank you to all those who sent cheers! In fact I shaved @ 25 minutes off my best for the course finishing in a slither under 5 hours. That put me in the top 5% of finishers and second in the old crocks category I now qualify for!

Anyone else watching Lost in Transition on TLC?

Synopsis: Four couples face the most difficult time in their marriage as each wife has just learned her husband has decided to become a woman. Relationships get redefined as each couple delves into the confusion, disappointment & uncertainty surrounding them.

I find it interesting and not trashy

Old stoires

Found a story while cleaning and arranging the folders I store my writing in that I thought I would share. I wrote it something like 6 or 7 years ago as a Whateley Academy Fanfic and then scrapped the first draft of the story for a completely different one that I was posting when their old site went down.

I promised myself I would not create any "new" serialized stories until I finished at least one of the three I have currently up and not finished.

Grazie dieci mila

I'd like to extend a heartfelt Thank You to all of you for pushing the total Kudos count for my stories beyond 10 000!

That makes it more than a thousand per year since I posted my first story here in December 2008. My writing was a bit sporadic in the beginning. Actually you could divide my stories into three periods: two stories in December 2008, a number of extremely short stories in 2010 and the present bunch from October 2014 and on.

Spell Checker Dictionary Issues

My computer has been giving me fits for about a week, so, since it is largely free, the Microsoft Store, volunteered to look at it for free, and I accepted. It is horrible to move this All in one around, almost out of my ability to do it. On the second day, they say they found that my HD is failing, so I looked into putting a HD in, and found that on my HP Envy, this model has a screen that is glued into place. Subsequent models apparently started using screws to secure it. So, I decided not to change the HD, and also avoided all the formatting and software installation headaches.

Update to my prior issue with my clinic.


I got back into the clinic yesterday after a phone conversation the other day with the new administrator. He was NOT happy with the way I was treated. While she was ‘following’ his guide lines, barely, she screwed up with how fast she dropped my Spiro... She dropped it to 125MG a day from 250MG... While he said he didn’t see any major effects to my health from it being that high from my prior records, he didn’t like the amount I was taking.

Gaby Book 22 - Avoidance

Okay so Book 22 has been released - yay!

However there are some issues with the published versions and I need the help of maybe a couple of editors. I have 2 printed 'proof' copies which i'd like the editors to work through and return to me so I can present an even better version to the wild masses!

I'm not expecting this as a freebie, the 'lucky' editors will each receive a hard copy suitably inscribed for their efforts and mention in the titling as editors.

only realised

I only realised last night that my last news was somewhat innacurate. I did mention that i'm out doing a little ride up in't Dales tomorrow precluding a posting.

But I said there would be one on Wednesday but there won't. Back in January I booked up for a sort of history day trip to Calderdale, which is on Wednesday. So no Wednesday update but there is a possibility I might get online a different day.

In other news -

i'm one and a half chapters into the next Gaby book with an interesting and unexpected turn of events!

Idea for collaboration

I’ve been thinking about a couple of items; the primary one is to find a collaborator who does 3-d graphic “novels” or stories, to work with to do a rewrite/adaptation of one of my stories or universes into a graphic novel. Possibly to sell if that interests an artist (with me taking only a small share; i know that art is hard and time-consuming).

If I do this, what story would you readers like to see as a graphic novel?

Tammy update

The latest part of Tammy's current story, Moving On, has just been published on here (expect weekly chapters) but much of my time is being spent on the first Tammy stories, Tom's Fireworks and Tamara's Debut. Both have been extensively revised and many many typos fixed and new material added! I'll launch these as a 430 page novel on Kindle next week, with any luck, but the original serialised book will remain on BCTS.

Yup, a flying visit indeed, not got much web time today - its complicated! partly its due to my new kitchen - its almost finished and partly due to setting up a new PC to get onto the interweb - its currently chortling to itself updating stuff.

I have just about managed to get you a new Gaby, which is Flying Visit, chapter 36 of book 16.

overdoing it, and paying for it

Blog About: 


last couple of days my brother and I have been trying to do yardwork, pulling out the dandelions so then we can trim the grass. Its sad, but my brother who had knee surgery not that long ago, is still on street drug levels of painkillers, and has little or no cartilage in any of his joints, is actually in better shape than I am.

I'm in pain, exhausted but unable to sleep, and its setting off PTSD, dysphoria, and depression.

Sighs ... this too shall pass, I suppose ...

I'm feeling emotionally stressed out and a bit depressed.

Four months ago, I posted a piece that had pretty much everyone who commented upset at what I had written.

I had no issue with their comments, other than that I took the time to put up a bunch of legal info to support my thoughts.

Then another person posted, using the Guest Reader option, and proceeded to be initially mildly rude, then more so and outright abusive.

When I saw the comment, I sent a PM to Erin, asking for it to be unsubbed as it was an outright Rule 1 violation.

My blog - rant


Yup, you guessed it, this is a rant about my blog. Or more accurately what to expect on my blog - my perspective.

YES! That's right. Everything you read on my blog will be written relative to my perspective. How can this be a shock, or even a question?!? I'm not writing a story in which the narrative is that of a character external to myself. Smh.

I'm flawed. I'm erratic, oft flighty. I can be extremely passionate or apathetic. Sorry to dash any expectations pfft.

Lilith Langtree

Another of my author shout outs. This one is specifically for Lilith Langtree.

I will say now that I'm an unabashed Lilith fan-girl. The very first story I'd read ("Either Do It Right, Or Don't Do It At All") left me impressed with her talent, and each subsequent work only added to that impression.

Lilith's writing is both brilliant and well executed. If you've not read any of her pieces yet I very highly recommend doing so.

Sadly, Lilith no longer publishes her writing on BCTS ( I don't know if this holds true elsewhere), though I believe she is doing well.

Author shout-outs

Or more accurately, Universe shout outs ^^

Just saw "Fey", by Maggie Finson republished and it reminded me of some really good stories....

Whateley Academy, and Comics Retcon.

Whateley Academy Tales. I can't recall a single story set in this universe that wasn't simply amazing. It's fantastical, sometimes bizarre, and totally worth reading (probably more than once lol) Think I've only read them on Sapphires Place but I'm sure they're all here too.

Feeling very down today.

and I don't mean hugging my pillow.


Bear in mind as you read this, if you do read it, that I can be a long-winded bitch.

I think part of it is aging and knowing that I've been here longer than I will be going forward... and I don't feel like I've accomplished anything for having existed... except existing.

Was a post of mine inappropriate? (At a different fiction site)

I was reading a rather different serially posted TG story on another site. The story is well written and the plot is subtle and slow in it's development. It was about an extremely conservative religious patriarchal rural family that found and took in an abused TG youth near death. Even though they thought the child was going against their religious beliefs, they decided to support the child and foster him/her. They really did go out of their way to accommodate the child's desire to transition.

Kudos, Comments, and blogs

Praise in Public Criticize in Private, words to live by when talking to other authors.

A story is much like someones baby, if you have put a person on the defensive they are no longer listening.

Kudos are a no brainier. If I have read a complete story I click it, Erotica turns me off if a story offends me I don' finish reading it or click kudos,.I also tend to avoid forced fem or humiliation. I put myself in the place of the character and tend to experience what they do. I don't lik emotional pain.

The Real Wildcats


Hi, all. After editing Wildcats Book 3 a while back, I decided to do a search on the name. Unlike Megan Campbell's -- which when first posted actually included her 2011 tour dates from the story -- there's nothing about Leslie's Wildcats on the Web.

But it turns out that there is an established group called the Wildcats out there -- though they're in the U.K., and they look a little different...

Author shout-outs

Shouting out for two authors, here - Dorothy Colleen and Rebecca Jane.

Dorothy Colleen. She's got this vast collection of short stories that's simply awesome! Running the gambit of topics, Dorothy is frequently upending tropes on their heads and giving new takes on various genres. Well worth a look, but beware, you might lose yourself for days within her prose ^^

Yay! New Nena is up!

It has taken a while but I've managed to upload the new Nena tale to Kindle and Lulu this afternoon!A Global Christmas is full of the usual Nena features - travelogue, awkward situations and even drama! It's a must for all Nena fans and as an introductory offer, the printed version is being offered at a discount for the next 30 days.

Slowly Trans acceptance coming


Those outside looking in who are scared to death to acknowledge anyone might wish to get rid of their water weasel will never accept transgender as a viable issue. Their whole world of who and what they are is connected to what is between their legs. For anyone to question that appendage is NOT what should be there is a personal mental problem no one seems to be addressing. Their own determination to control others lives as to what may or may not be the correct anatomy they were born with is failing us all.

Need some advice

I got carried away.

I posted Wildcats Prequel Chapter 4 last week and got so excited on how neat it looked that I posted Wildcats Prequel 5. I thought it would be cool to give the readers a “Two For One” to celebrate Memorial Day.

I didn’t realize a BigCloset rule is that’s a no-no. I talked to Erin and she tried to intervene but the Rule God’s won.

So, half the readers missed chapter four. I feel bad. Ant suggestions besides, “Give me a break, just get over it!”



In the near future, DOPPLERPRESS will publish Baseball Annie.

This will be the fiftieth title published by DOPPLERPRESS.

Baseball Annie will be the sixth book they have published that I’ve authored. Only two other authors have had more books published by them than I have, which means I have an opinion based on multiple interractions.

As you might expect from an Erin-driven operation, DOPPLERPRESS has been extremely author-friendly. I’m especially pleased by the covers they’ve created for my novels.

Yup, I know the new Gaby has only just gone live but tomorrow, the first of a two part Nena storyline will be released. A Global Christmas sees Nena and Den having to survive a last minute change of plans to take a party away for Christmas. I'll post links etc tomorrow once i've got it up.

I'm working up the next Trixiebell 'chapter', with any luck and a finished kitchen, you should get to see the fruits of that endeavour in about a fortnight. After that it's back to Gaby and Book 23!

Blog About: 


okay so yesterday Sharon needed me to drive her to the vet because her cat was having problems. While we were waiting, she starts this conversation about her church, and says she thinks they are a little too quick to pull out judgement.

Then she says she was also guilty of this in dealing with my desire to transition. She said while she doesnt really understand it, or like it, she felt she had been more negative towards me about it than I deserved, and she apologized.

honestly, you could have knocked me over with a feather ...

Thanks to whichever Divine Being is responsible for the Mount Kilauea volcano eruption being the way it is.

Yes, it is causing a lot of damage that will cost a lot to repair.
In it's favour though, the slow eruption has allowed 2000 people to safely evacuate with only 1 serious injury, no-one has died from it.

The true benefit is the knowledge being gained about volcanoes in general and Mount Kilauea in specific. This massive increase helps Volcanologists improve prediction models, making them better able to predict eruptions.
