Stories by my own hand
I was inspired to write stories by reading those written by several authors, mainly those on the page on this site which links to Other Authors.
My main inspiration has been the young Chicago writer who goes by the name of Comicality. His encouragement and friendship has started me writing about young love, forbidden love.
I am grateful to him, and will be for ever in his debt.

Each of the stories has a history. Each of them has a vision that inspired it. I've created a set of background notes for you to see exactly what was in my mind before I put finger to keyboard.
In addition, as you'll see from the notes, there have been boys in my life who have inspired the stories. Some of these I was at school with. I've put a Rogues Gallery together with those I have pictures of. They're old extracts from school photographs. There's even a poll to vote for your favourite boy.
The Icelandic Band Sigur Rós has created an awesome video which expresses the love of a boy for another. It is named Viðrar Vel til Loftárása.
Sigur Rós may be found at http://www.sigur-ros.com. I have heard recently a rumour that the dark haired boy is acted by a girl. However an Icelandic friend tells me that this is a mistake, and that both boys are boys. The video is hugely powerful.
I dedicate my stories to all those boys who have loved other boys, and who have gloried in that love, whether returned or not.
Sometimes life gets a little tough. Or a sentiment is evoked, or help is needed. We have a small community of friends here, and you are invited: to come as a friend, to watch as a friend, to join in as a friend, to become "permanent", or to flit through our lives. The choice is yours.
Drop by the community and see for yourself. From small beginnings, large friendships and support can blossom.
