Comsie, you are an immensely talented writer. One of the first - if not the first - stories I read upon finding GA was My Only Escape. I admit to being disappointed that the story wasn't complete when I came to the final published chapter, but I got over that quickly and now patiently wait for the next Notification to come my way. When they come, they are an unexpected treat.

 

I did see a comment from one reader that made me angry on your behalf - and others were too - that you were not writing/posting in a manner he/she felt you should. You are on no one's timetable but your own. Your stories are a gift and a privilege - not a right. I know it's not easy to shut out the negative stuff that comes your way, but just know that the positive far outweighs the negative. Of that I am sure - I guess we just need to tell you that more often, huh? :hug:

I was there 20 years ago (or however long ago it was).  I remember finding nifty in my college computer lab.  We were just discovering the internet back then.  Everything was geocities and netscape.  Pictures took longer to download than whole movies take today.  If I was skilled, I could time the printer to print something from nifty before anyone else would see what it was so I could read it without worrying about someone looking over my shoulder.  I remember the quality of the stories.  It was mostly spank material.  I remember thinking, "I wish someone would put some effort into the characters in this stuff."  Couldn't someone come up with a decent mix of plot and characters and sex?


 


And then I found you.  "New Kid in School" to be exact.  There was something different about the way you wrote.  It reminded me of the stories I loved as a teen, Johnny Tremain, the Outsiders, Tom Sawyer.  It was the characters.  Ryan and Randy were like friends to me.  They were boys who happened to be gay.  Yeah, every chapter had a sex scene in those days, but it was more than that.  Oh, I hated Tyler in those days.  He was going to break the boys up, I just knew it!  But it was the little things.  Tootsie rolls, and "How do you like those apples?" 


 


I read some of your other stuff, but it was always "New Kid." that had me.  There were other authors and stories, "Storm Front," "Working It Out" and the like.  But through it all, you were always there, quietly writing away.  Hundreds of chapters and other stories.


 


I wanted to be like you.  I wasn't nearly as talented, but I wanted to write the kind of story that made people care for my characters the way I felt about Ryan and Randy.  I couldn't nearly write as much as you, there's no way I could keep all those storylines straight in my head.  But I wanted to write something that would make others happy the way you made me happy.  So I did.  At least I tried.  There wouldn't be a "W.A.R." without "New Kid in School."  You reached some 19 year old college nerd back in the day, and I'm guessing dozens of other writers could say the same thing.  I hope that even if you retire from this writing thing some day that you know that your legacy is one of inspiration and joy for a whole lot of people.  I love you, bro!

I truly, TRULY, appreciate all of your comments on this! Oh God, I'm so happy that I don't just sound like some raving lunatic when I talk about this. Thank you for letting me know that I'm not totally crazy or being oversensitive when it comes to this kind of thing. I understand that you just have to ignore certain comments from certain people, and brush it off of your shoulder so you can keep pressing forward. But this is a growing TREND in people in general, and it has to stop. People consume soooooo much that they're draining their creative resources dry. And they don't even have the common courtesy to say thank you when they're finished. That's so wrong. It's disrespectful to think that people have forgotten what a 'gift' is.

...

Anyway, sorry for rambling. I know that I'm sounding all bitter and mean again. I just know that if you don't say anything, the abuse continues. This is something we all need to change. Me included. I support GA and it's authors because I believe in everything that they do here. I believe in you guys. And you've given me enough entertainment to last the rest of my life. Why WOULDN'T I take a few minutes every couple of days to support a website that I love? Why not do my part to keep it going? Why not encourage the writers I love and respect instead of complaining and tearing them down? It just doesn't make any sense to me at all.

 

Protect what you love. The moment you take a site like this for granted is the moment you lose it. It's too late to cry about it then.

 

Love you all. I'll put my happy face back on. K? Promise. (( Hugz ))

 

Hi Comsie, if you'll allow me to call you so, like some others do.

 

I think both your original post at the start of this topic and your later reaction perfectly make sense.

You share your stories here for free. That should be reason enough to be nice, respectfull and stimulating in comments towards you.

 

I know I'm often one of the silent readers here and I only seldom log in.

I realise that because of that I seldom leave comments, say 'thank you' or post 'likes' often. I'll try to do my best to change that. :blushing: 

 

Thanks for posting this topic here.

 

And

 

NO I'M NOT DONE WITH YOU !

 

So Please keep writing.  :hug:

Comsie, Sweetheart...

 

....your stories helped me to come out after decades of being Frozen, just like Elsa. I can't even watch that cartoon without being brought to tears and people think I'm crazy. You helped to melt the ice!

 

I so devoted myself to your cathartic reminiscences that I wanted to write an answer to Billy Chase, one of your most ambitious works. I'm serious as a heart attack, Comsie, Brandon is ME! You wrote ME! You wrote me like you always knew me. That is fucking psychic!

 

I do not gush when I say these things. I am not someone that gushes. I reserve my praise for things that deserve it. You are deserving.

I love everything you do and each new entry you make is a special treat of the day for me. Something to look forward to like chocolate cake or sugared grapefruit slices ( ;) )

 

You have inspired me to write again after years of dormancy. You inspired me to come out even at this late age. You inspied me to...keep going when I didn't want to live anymore.

 

You will never know, Comicality...

You will never know....

 

Do as you wish, but do not let the handful of screaming devils drown out the choirs of your singing angels. We are here...we always will be. Hear us!

 

:heart:

I hate that I know people can be so shitty. It's bollocks. I'm sorry there are bastards out there putting you through hell, it's not right, it's not fair, and in real life you know every single one of them would be snivelling wrecks by now.

 

Just, don't give it all to the fight, save some for home. Anger is only ever going to get you so far (ain't I learning that the hard way). And don't go anywhere. clearly the people who love you and what you do are far better specimens than the few who who are making it their business to make you hurt.

 

On an almost unrelated note, that was the best rant I've seen in a long time. Your vitriol translates well. Remind me never to have you angry at me.

Comsie, buddy, pal, no there are SO many of us who are not done with you by a long way. As jamessavik said, you are probably the last of your generation of great internet writers still actively posting stories. Please realize that there are a ton of us who love and appreciate who you are and what you do. I, like many others can attribute my GA membership to you. I joined GA just so I could post a comment on one of your stories. You've been writing these stories for as long since I was still in high school and I've been reading online gay fiction since that classic era when you were first posting Gone From Daylight and New Kid.

 

So please don't let this constant negativity get you down. No you aren't the only one who sees it, I myself am noticing it more and more about all forms of entertainment. But, since it can't be said enough, thank you for all you do. Thanks for the hours of hard work, and all the amazing stories you've told that have touched my heart and brought a smile to my face. And, if you have it in you to keep it up, I'd love to see many more chapters from you in the future.

 

You're the best Comsie.

 

Keep writiing for your fans. I'm gonna go and read something of yours, so I can count myself among them.

Tim my friend, just as an FYI, Comsie basically invented the gay teen romance story. I know those aren't always your favorite. That being said, he's very talented, and has written some very good stuff that's brought tears to my eyes. You might try his story "My Only Escape" a particularly awesome story he's written, that definitely has some heavier themes.

I would like to say that I am one of the people lurking in the shadows silently appreciating your work, but then I realised until today I haven't been on this or any other story site for over 5 years! for that I apologise, life just keeps getting in the way.

  when my neurologically diverse brain slowed down enough for me to remember about your stories I just had to come looking, hoping to find them still here, expecting at best to find just the old stories and nothing else I was/am overjoyed to find they are still here with so many new ones and additions to old ones and even better your still here writing them! Hells teeth!  I have so much reading to do.

  Haters are gonna hate and all of a sudden the world is full of keyboard warriors who feel safe in the sanctity of their own homes to slate others without fear of reprisal or a care for what hurt they cause.

  I am so glad that you are still here and hope you are for a long time to come.

Thanks, Tricky! Yep, I'm still here! Blabbing away with much more to say! Hehehehe! I truly do appreciate it. I definitely let it get to me sometimes, because I 'LOVE' you guys! I want to entertain and to 'wow' people and to move them emotionally. And I think they really do like the stories...they just don't want ME to know that! LOL! God forbid I start feeling too confident around here. :P

 

((Hugz)) And thanks, dude!

Comsie,

 

I've read a lot... and I mean a lot of your awesome work. So, it's safe for me to say - you rock. Very, very nice ...

But, for me, your work on one particular story was truly therapeutical. Believe it or not, one of your stoiries helped me to come to terms with my past. To be honest, that single piece of your wast work became my only escape. So, yeah, it's much, much more than simple fun for me. It, kinda, saved me... Think about that and do not let anybody take you down. Because you're my hero.

 

Anyway, thank you for everything you've done so far. I am aware that your work, all of it, is mainly labor of love. I do hope you'll continue to work when ever you feel like, not when we demand it.

Thank you, Q. It honestly took me a bunch of tries to write that particular story. I kept trying to tell myself that they were just words and that I shouldn't be so emotionally affected by the idea of an abusive father...but I honestly couldn't handle it the first few times. Stories like "Gone From Daylight" and "Final Hour" sort of touched on the idea, but I kept running away from it. I made a more serious attempt in "New Kid" somewhere, but I wrote the father out of the story rather quickly because I wasn't ready for it yet. It took a few years for "Escape" to actually be told the way that it needed to be told. And it makes me happy to know that it helped. Without an understanding audience to let me know that I wasn't completely crazy...it wouldn't have been possible. So in reality, you saved me too. ((Hugz))

 

Thanks for the post, dude. Love you lots!
