    The Osserians of the Fens

    This has been a great story, and it's captivating. I'm loving all the plot twists and turns, and it's a very vibrant and well throughout world. Excellent.

    Thank you for reading it. I'm glad you liked it. Sometimes it's not a big thing that breaks us. Its the last tiny shard in a parade of small hurts.

    Poem 1

    Wow. Thank you. I must say sharing it so far has been beyond my expectations. And as for the tone, I'll admit that When I first wrote this, depression was enmeshed in every part of me. Everything was dark and empty, until it wasn't. Then it was dark and terrifyingly full. Too full, and it swept me under. But quietly. And sometimes I think we all face that deeply scary quiet place, where the tiniest sound cracks across and ruins you. Thank you for the comments. I'm amazed at how others are getting into this piece.

    Northern Exposure: General Discussion

    Mark's got a lot of personal stuff going on as well as professional commitments. We've accepted that postings for this book and Black Widow will be sporadic and are just happy when they happen.

    Poem 1

    First and foremost, I'm very glad you decided to share your poetry with us. As you can tell, we are all looking forward to reading what you have to say. In terms of this poem, I really do find it profoundly sad. Other reviewers have not said that, but I do. It's the type of sadness connected perfectly to the small noise (or silence) of the poem's theme. The conclusion is crushing for me. I'm not sure drowning men don't hear their own voices screaming in their heads, droning out the little voice of God you write about. But, I'm not sure. Additionally, this wonderful poem puts me in mind of some big-time writers and how they've written about similar understandings of man's place in creation. I won't quote them here, but the links will show you the text I have in mind. https://www.azquotes.com/public/picture_quotes/33/69/33698891d5c9d614fbce78c10abb4d0e/herman-melville-606151.jpg https://quotefancy.com/media/wallpaper/3840x2160/4873859-Herman-Melville-Quote-All-Profound-things-and-emotions-of-things.jpg Awesome. I do hope you share more of your poetry with us.

    Epiphany... Say, What?!

    I don't know if it counts, but I realized centaurs have two sets of ribcages while reading Harry Potter....

    Just Friends?

    Great chapter. We see some compassion from Donovan, yet he remains so defensive. Shane laid it all on the line and like Shane said, it wasn't enough. I don't know how much damage Donovan has done here if he were to follow through on his wanting Shane. Donovan needs to let Shane in and trust him and much like Shane needs to put Donovan first instead of apologizing for mistakes after the fact, Donovan needs to do exactly the same thing. One difference is that Shane has been willing to admit his mistakes to Donovan, but Donovan is only seeming to start to admit his mistakes to himself, never mind Shane. Its good to hear more of Donovan and to see progress on his part. Incidentally, if Shane wanted to win Donovan, when he gets to dress him, he should tell Donovan to go as he would normally go. That would probably ease many of Donovan's fears that he can't trust Shane when Shane said "You are exactly what I didn't know I was looking for."

    I have a feeling the author is going to make me cry. Nevertheless, I will read on.

    Poem 1

    "Such a tiny thing. It fills up my existence and it shatters me completely." You've written several powerful lines in this poem. This stanza really stands out to me. It exemplifies how one seemingly insignificant word / sound /phrase can trigger an unexpected emotional response, surprising even oneself. This is a great piece, thank for sharing it.

    This was such a wonderful story. I enjoyed the characters and liked them so much. The slow pace was great. Nice romantic parts as well. Do write more, Nick.

    Story Review: Never Too Late

    Thank you for your kind words. Eric's story will continue in the New Year. When I started writing about Eric, I had no idea how unusual an older protagonist was. When I came to post the completed story, I thought it would attract very little interest. How wrong I was.

    Story Review: Never Too Late

    I am so glad to see that the story arc will continue, this story touches on many important themes, things we like not to recognize as we all grow older. The gay community isn't solely comprised of horny 16 to 30 year old men. As I enter those golden years it becomes all too clear that many of us still lead vital lives, do good works and appreciate the larger world around us. Never Too late encapsulates many important themes and it is truly appreciated. There was a time when I was growing up that it would have been a death sentence to have come out as gay, it would have been considered social suicide and self-immolation. I sympathize with Eric, I appreciate the authors work and so much more needs to be done. Thank you Northie

    Lol! Thank you. Unfinished basements are already creepy enough without having to fear what Ramón faced! I apologize in advance if you have to go into your basement on a regular basis. 😬
