Weekly Update: 6 August 2022

Welcome to Vignette Party #17! It’s a huge update this week. Not only are there four entries from me (all of them written from pretty cool prompts furnished by my beautiful and fate-beloved Patreonites), but there’s a bumper crop of story submissions this week as well, with favorite stories being continued and new stuff all mixed up together. So yeah, it really does feel like a party. Abbondanza!

So go, explore the offerings and find what most tugs at your—er, heartstrings, or, whatever. Remember also to star-upvote and comment on stories you like so others can find them, and authors know what’s connecting with the readers.

The Friday Flashback this week collected some previous Vignette Party stories that hadn’t been surfaced recently, so take a look at that if you missed it. The next update is a week hence, on 13 August. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Weekly Update: 30 July 2022

This week I’m adding two more chapters to the Patreoncommissioned #bigdickproblems story “Casey’s Mancock,” which is turning out to be a lot of fun to write. Hope you enjoy it as well, but either way there’s a lot more to peruse down below. Make sure to star-upvote and comment on the stories you like so others can find them, too.

Next week’s update is another Vignette Party, in which I write one-scene stories from prompts submitted to me by my lovely and star-chosen $15+ Patreonites. If that describes you, DM me your prompts and I’ll get cracking! And if it doesn’t describe you, it can! Sign on today at my Patreon page and you can join the party. Also: the Submission Guidelines page has been updated to include a few hints for making your stories a good read. Suggestions for this section are welcome and appreciated!

The Friday Flashback this week was sixth edition of The Unsurfaced, in which I collect unflashbacked stories from a few years back with some recognition via votes or views; check that out if you missed it. The next update, the aforementioned Vignette Party, will be a week hence on 6 August. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Friday Flashback: The Unsurface6

This week’s retrotrip is another bimonthly installment of The Unsurfaced where I collect stories with middle-tier views and good votes from four or more years ago that have never been surfaced in a Flashback post. Hope you find something interesting, and if not there’s a ton of stuff out back.

The next update is tomorrow, 30 July. In the meantime, have fun exploring the archives, and thanks for visiting the site.

Weekly Update: 23 July 2022

Lots of stuff for you this week! From me it’s two chapters of the Patreoncommissioned archaeology-and-horny-gods epic “The Expedition,” in which we spend some time with the dashing Dr. Andreas and football hunk-turned-protector-giant Gary. Hope you find something down there you appreciate, and remember to star-upvote and comment on the stories you like to help others find the fun they’re looking for.

Two weeks from today is the next Vignette Party, in which I write one-scene stories from prompts submitted to me by my lovely and star-chosen $15+ Patreonites. If that describes you, DM me your prompts and I’ll get cracking! And if it doesn’t describe you, it can! Sign on today at my Patreon page and you can join the party.

The Friday Flashback this week collected stories that are set out where people live in houses and have lawns and garages, just like I did in my own youth before I became a jaded, suburbia-scorning, bodega-coffee-swilling New Yorker, so check that out of you missed it. The next update is a week hence, on 30 July. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

This week’s new stuff:

Friday Flashback: House Party

For this week’s round-up of past stories, we’re leaving behind the world of apartments and population density and commuting out to where people have houses and yards and neighbors and enjoy their transformations with grass under their feet and cars in the garage. Hope you find something you like, and if not there’s lots more in the attic.

The next update is tomorrow, 23 July. In the meantime, have fun exploring the archives, and thanks for visiting the site.

This week’s flashback:

Weekly Update: 16 July 2022

Not having a commission this week, I decided to go back to an existing story that had been left hanging in a big way and see what I could do about giving it some new legs, as it were. And out of all the stories that need continuing, I knew that the one that’s the most sprawling in terms of characters and plotlines in desperate need of resolution had to be “Changing Nick,” hands down (and that’s a lot of hands!). Last time we visited the poor guys they’d split up into all these teams, Nick himself had been left exposed in the caff, his boy Brendan had just done a deal with the bad guy… epic plot sprawl. Plus I was also aware I’d kind of written myself into a corner with Calvin texting someone about the normality clicker at one point, except… given the flow of events then and subsequently, that “someone” couldn’t possibly be any of the existing characters. Which meant I had to add one more character to the mix before I could pour all this shit together and bake this cake. The good news is, I got so into it hauling these threads together, and had such a good time doing it, I ended up writing 10,000 words of BRK-trademark WeirdPorn for your delectation this week (and that’s on top of writing a web app to help me clear the year-long backlog of tag suggestions). The story’s still not done, but damn if these boys aren’t all finally headed for the biggest, messiest climax ever.

And if that’s not your bag there’s plenty more down below as well, so check it all out and remember to like and subscribe—I mean, star-upvote and comment on the stories you appreciate most.

Thank you to my beloved Patreonites for making my weekly updates and the writing I do possible. If you’re interested in joining the crew, the link is here. The Friday Flashback this week collected stories about guys hitting the gym, so check that out if you missed it. The next update is a week hence, on 23 July, and in the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Friday Flashback: Gym time

This week’s tour of the archives collects stories with guys pounding iron at the gym, which may or may not be a factor in the bodies they develop in the course of the story. 

The next update is tomorrow, 16 July. In the meantime, have fun exploring the archives, and thanks for visiting the site.

Weekly Update: 9 July 2022

This week’s contribution from me is a new full-story Direct Commission called “Derek and Simon.” There are some parts of it that a little off my own beaten path, which, after all, is one of the reasons I started doing commissions, and I had a great time exploring the characters and their dynamics. Let me know in the comments what you think.

Lots of other good stuff down there as well, and remember to star-upvote and comment on the stories you appreciate. The Friday Flashback this week collected stories involving side-trips to the beach, so take a look at that ifd you missed it.

The next update is a week hence, on 16 July. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Friday Flashback: Beachin’

For this voyage to the land of Temps-Perdu I’ve once again collected ten stories that involve a refreshing trip to the beach. Hope you find something you like, and if not, you can search for your own joytimes to your heart’s content.

The next update is tomorrow, 9 July. In the meantime, have fun exploring the archives, and thanks for visiting the site.
