  1. Entry 27: Lust

    The first tentative stirrings of passion are probably the most wondrous and profoundly moving to discover — especially when your 14 and trying to find your way in a bewildering world. This chapter is practically poetry, and it brought back a lot of great personal memories for me. Thank you for that @D.K. Daniels. Thank you for all your hard work and imagination.
  2. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all those who celebrate — and to all those who don’t! And be safe! I can’t spare a single good person on this site. :hug:

      Same to you buddy! Showing Danny Sir Irish pride today. Corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and carrots in slow cooker now. Top the night with some fine Irish whiskey.

  3. Entry 26: The Act Of Existing

    There’s lots of ways to be weird — and some of them can be very endearing. I’m sure that you’re no exception. And you’re definitely not a dick. 😇
  4. Entry 26: The Act Of Existing

    Poor Carl! I hurt for him; having been shut down after pouring his heart out to a hot girl. Not too many experiences are as demoralizing, or hurt more than the shutdown — especially the first time it happens. Hopefully, he will be strong enough to get past it with his self-confidence intact. I guess it IS better to be odd, than it is to be a dick! I’ve never really considered that idea before. Weird Thomas actually makes me uncomfortable too! I’ve known several guys like that, and the more clingy they get, the greater the instinctual desire to just pull away! Adam has such a gentile caring heart, I really hope that it dosen’t get him in trouble. Another great chapter @D.K. Daniels. I think that you’re doing a terrific job with this story.
  5. Rest In Peace Professor Stephen Hawking — you were a true inspiration and a profound influence. You helped me learn to love science, and you will be remembered with awe and affection.

    WOW! These are all beautiful! No shit. I’m totally impressed.
  7. The Ordinary Us

    This is one of the most impactful and sensitively written stories I’ve ever encountered on GA! It is a coming of age parable of self discovery, true friendship and the unlikely bond that sparks and grows between two very different teenage boys, each with one driving force in common. A mutual and undeniable attraction that ultimately blossoms into a powerful and unlikely relationship. Coming out can be a very personal and individual experience: a glidepath for some — and a nightmare for others. Sometimes the single biggest difference between these two extremes lies in the strength and support we give, and receive from others.
  8. Chapter 95 The Adoption

    Another great chapter @Dodger! So, we finally come to the actual day-of-adoption. I’m really hoping that his new status will work out positively for Robbie, who doesn’t seem to be fully embracing the spirit of it. The truth is, I’m glad Don isn’t my father, even though I suppose he probably does mean well. I thought the pool scene was cool, and nicely described, with just the right balance of humor and realism. Looks like Tom’s presence has the potential to be big trouble for Nathan. I hope he’s paying attention! And I hope Robbie can somehow separate his lusts from logic, and his deeper feelings for Nathan. That’s not always easy — and probably not always possible! As always, I can’t wait to see what happens next.
  9. It is arrogant and dismissive to classify 17-year-olds as children, although sometimes politically convenient! 17-year-olds are young adults. Yes, they are on a steep learning curve — but fundamentally, aren’t we all?

      You all debate much better than what I've seen from some adults.

      Actually, many 17-year-olds do have part time jobs. Their full time job is do well in school, and build a successful future.

      LOL The edits make it seem like I'm talking to myself. I do on occasion, but not this time. 

  10. Entry 24: No Joke

    This chapter does a vivid job of portraying sexual discovery in its various, sometimes nebulous forms; Not just the physical aspects, but the more critical phycological adjustments. It can all be a bit overwhelming at first, and sometimes strewn with surprises. I can relate to Adam’s unpredictable fantasies, and even to his guilt about their appropriateness. When I was his age I once developed a wicked crush on my best friend. Alas, I don’t think there is a gay bone in his perfect body! Now that I’m older I’m glad there’s not, because we’re still best friends and who knows how it might have worked out otherwise. One thing is for sure: If I ever find that man selling the time machines — I’m ordering two!
  11. Entry 23: Sky's The Limit

    It’s really nice to see Adam and Ross getting so comfortable with each other as their special relationship deepens. I guess it is somewhat unsettling that his mother may have read his diary! I know my mother would have read mine if I had kept one — which I did not! On the other hand, if Adam’s mam does understand the true nature of the boys realitionship, and is as calm and accepting as she seems, then she’s an amazing parent. On a side note, I think I was about Adam’s age when I saw my first porno video. Fortunately it was fairly soft-core and probably about as much as I could handle at the time. I had a similar reaction to Ross’s, and it was the first of many reactions since my best friend seemed to have a never ending supply of videos and magazines. Must be a rite of passage shared by young boys all over the world.
  12. Entry 22: Secrets

    Yes, it would be very creepy to have someone spying on you. Somehow it’s even worse that a lens is involved — not sure exactly why! Sounds like Thomas is looking for more than just friendship from Adam, but you can never tell. Not everything is as it seems, and it’s a lazy mind that consistently jumps to simplest conclusions — Occam’s razor not withstanding! Whatever the facts, this is an interesting plot development that definitely adds some interesting additional dimension to the story.
  13. Bisexuality: Real Or Fake

    YEAP! I hate to admit it but this is true, at least in the Midwest. It sorta feels like we’re going backwards socially, and maybe even politically lately. Lots of haters out there — way too many! When tolerance and acceptance disappear from a culture the resulting society becomes oppressive. You don’t have to look very far in the world to observe this. Discrimination and bigotry are the products of a lazy and selfish mind! Sometimes I think it’s actually contagious.
  14. So really — each one of us could make the world just a little bit better for others, if we really wanted to;  By extending just a little more kindness — just a bit more empathy. Before I die, I will do this because I care. I really DO care.

      Right on brother! 🤗

  15. Entry 20: Clearing The Air

    However you choose to constuct your story is fine with me @D.K. Daniels. It’s a work of art, and it has been a joy to read. I never presume tell an artist what colors to use. I simply enjoy and admire the talent. Really sorry that you had to have a tooth pulled. Can’t imagine that horror! Hope they gave you some Novocain or other meds before pulling. What a bitch!
