    Don't bring me into this!
  2. Love?

    Exactly - yet still you only love it with as much intensity as everything else!
  3. Love?

    Wait... you love chocolate the same amount as everything else? This seems very wrong.
  4. What brought you to GA? Why do you stay?

    I don’t know about that, but I hope it’s at least a cost neutral thing And thank you.
  5. What brought you to GA? Why do you stay?

    What brought me to GA? Actually it was a reader. I’d posted some stuff on another site where you don’t get any real interface with readers, although several people had made the effort to email me about my stories, which was pretty nice, and I exchanged a few messages with some of them. But there’s only so much you can do with that, so I started a mailing list for my occasional updates, which was (still is actually) surprisingly busy. I suspect though it’s mostly people like me who don’t unsubscribe and just delete the email. Anyway, I digress. After I included a brief rant about how poor the response from yet another site was when I tried to register (you’re really not that ‘awesome’, ‘dude’), I got an email pointing me towards GA. And wow, what a discovery that was! An actually functioning website, a reader base who are engaged, comments, likes, hell, this was like paradise! Why do I stay? I nearly didn’t - but thankfully I got over that So basically because it’s a pretty great place, with mostly pretty great people. I really value the opportunities to engage with readers and other writers, to get some meaningful feedback, and to read some very brilliant work by other people. Even if that does mean my productivity has taken a total nose-dive!
  6. A Craving

    You’ve created so many monsters, whether they are people or feelings, real or imagined.
  7. Cool - I’d never heard it before.
  8. Does that count as a portmanteau? I like it whatever.
  9. Thanks for the Review of My Christmas Joy! It's really appreciated! :hug::2thumbs:

      No problem, it was a very enjoyable read.

  10. My Christmas Joy

    Awww, what a hopelessly romantic story, with a Groot reference too, so bonus points for that Oh, an actual review? OK, this is a short but delicious story, romantic, maybe whimsical, definitely cute, where Alex gets way more than he expects for Christmas. Just go and read it and enjoy. And no, it doesn’t matter that Christmas is currently months away.
  11. FFXIV anyone?

    I’ve just been introduced to this via a friend, it looks good, but the almost total lack of early voice acting is a little weird. Anyone else play? Does it get better? Is it worth it?
  12. Not A Kiss

    This is a really nice story, which is disarmingly brutal whilst hiding behind a light and fluffy facade. I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say that the right thing happens in the end - although you might not be entirely clear what that is until you get there. Reading it all in one sitting, as I just have, there were a few slightly jarring moments between chapters, but this wasn’t a major problem and things generally explained themselves wel enough in the end. Unfortunately it also suffers from one of my pet hates, namely, having too many gay characters. It’s as personal taste issue, so you might not care about this, or even like it more because of it. I’m not here to judge, well, OK, I am because I get to give it a star rating, but you know what I mean. It’s still a good story.
  13. Chapter 4

    Well this is going to get complicated
  14. One Like Ryder

    I’m enjoying this second half (?) much more than the first, which surprises me even as I write this, but seeing how Teddy and Ryder are starting to make actual ‘grown-up’ decisions and come to terms with big feelings is very gratifying.
  15. Overtures

    Oooh, grown-ups, cool!
