No In/Exhale or Love UnSeen This Week

Hey, everyone,

I'm the bearer of bad news. No stories from me this week. I'm sorry.

This past week has been a very rough one for me. Right before I posted the last episode of Love UnSeen, I got a call that devastated me. I recently traveled across the country to see an expert in my headache condition, hoping I'd finally find someone who would understand how disabling this disease is and would be willing to work with me. Initially, it seemed like this doctor was willing to work with me to find a possible cause for the headache and the best treatment to actually attempt to cure it and not just treat symptoms.

However, that call basically informed me that he could not/would not see me and I needed to rely on my current neurologist, who has been horrible to me, who doesn't believe my pain is real or that I've been totally disabled by it, and who refused to help me when my pain was so bad I wasn't able to sleep for weeks. I have no choice but to keep seeing him, but I'd hoped that this expert would at least give me some other treatment options, since my current doctor refuses to think outside the box. But that hope was shattered, crushed, and twisted. It was made even worse because my pain management doctor had tried me on a very short-term treatment that actually made me feel a trillion times better for the two or three days that it lasted, and I'd hoped that would open the door to new treatments to try that might possibly reduce my pain without all my other meds or maybe even take the headache away entirely for a few weeks at a time. It was like this brilliant burst of yellow was suddenly and immediately tarnished by darkness.

So many times since this condition started I'd allowed hoped to bloom only for it to be relentlessly destroyed, and at this point, with very few (if any) options left to me, it's been rough. Especially since there are some options that have opened up but no one will try them. Not this expert, not my pain doctor, and certainly not my current neuro. And it was all made worse because I had to keep it together and put on a happy face for our holiday company, so that when they left it all came crashing down on me.

I tried to write, and I managed to work on In/Exhale a little, but honestly, it was hard for me to care about much of anything the past few days.

Don't worry: I haven't given up on either story, and my hope is to resume next week. It is possible I may need to go to posting every other week instead of weekly for a little while, perhaps until next year.

I'm really sorry for letting you all down (again). Thank you for understanding,

Hey hey hey!

Hello you guys! It's Gemini and I am back with a new story, which I plan to begin next week. I'm here to claim Tuesdays, which is an empty day as far as I can tell (but correct me if I'm wrong.)

Let me just say, thank you for those who've read my previous stories (Lies All Lies = 2000 views and counting!) and commented. You've given me the motivation to write a story that's longer and more detailed, so I can get to torturously flesh out everyone's feelings and write elaborate sex scenes the way I love to do! Stay tuned!

Something different

So I've been away from home for the Thanksgiving break, and I forgot to take a copy of The Best Man with me (gosh, doesn't everyone travel with all their stories in tow?).  So I won't be able to post an update today.  However, I remembered that my "award-winning" story "I Am Devotee" from Devotion House was never posted here, so I figured I'd copy it here in lieu of a real update.  It's a little more angsty than my usual, but hopefully you will enjoy it if you haven't already read it.

I am Devotee

Damn him.

This is what the bastard has done to me: he’s made me into a voyeur. I’m the creep staring at him across the room. But I can’t help but watch this creature, because to look away would be a travesty.  He’s striking—from his shaggy blond mane to his vivid green eyes to his broad shoulders and arms with muscles that ripple with each movement, clearly visible under his worn T-shirt.

But let’s not kid ourselves. None of that is the reason that I can’t take my eyes off Logan Winchester.

No, what draws me to Logan like a magnet is what’s below those firm, tight muscles in his chest. And by that, I mean his legs. It’s the part of him that makes everyone in the room stare at him—then quickly look away. Long legs, far too thin when compared with his brawny biceps, tapering down to sneakered feet, positioned next to each other in a single foot plate.  Those legs never move, except to sway slightly when he shoves his calloused palms against the pushrims of his sleek chrome wheelchair.

New story!

As announced, this is my new multi-chapter story featuring a CP guy. The story is in most parts inspired by my short story Blue, and more or less picks up where Blue left off. It's also dark. I will give specific warnings at the beginning of a chapter but if you feel like I missed something please tell me.
With that I'm leaving you to Silver - Part I. I hope of course you like it and always appreciate comments!

Love UnSeen Continues - Meet Dan

Happy Thanksgiving!

As promised, your extra-long segment, and you finally get to meet the love interest.

Read it here.

Gonna shoot for another chapter next week, but not sure if I'll be able to. Got a pretty big blow today, health wise, and it's been a pretty disheartening afternoon.


In/Exhale Continues


The last couple weeks have been a whirlwind for me...

These final two parts of February 10 are intense, especially the second part.

One scene in particular may be difficult to read. It was very difficult to write, and even now I'm so nervous about posting it.

I hope you will find it to be what a lot of the past two seasons have been building toward, reveal-wise.

In a lot of ways this whole day was about discovery and revelations, and I hope you'll enjoy its conclusion.

Previously on In/Exhale: Kai and Jon journeyed to Omaha to visit Harbinger Clinic, the mental hospital Jon and Dr. Miller are hoping Kai will be comfortable checking into. The place is very fancy and Kai's cynicism makes him doubt the sincerity of it all.

This Week on In/Exhale: Kai and Jon's visit continues. Kai talks to some of the patients to get a better sense of Harbinger. Meanwhile, Dr. Miller's own visit to County House finally bears fruit as Ms. Evans reveals important details of Kai's past. After their visit, Jon gives Kai the chance to decompress after the stressful day by giving him some experiences he can't have back home. Additionally, Jon reveals some truths about his own past to Kai.

Next Time on In/Exhale: Kai and Jon deal with the fallout of the previous day, and Jon grows increasingly worried that he may have to forcibly commit his brother. Kai tries his best to push through his pain and depression, determined to make it Valentine's Day and to honor his commitment to go to dinner at Frankie's house and meet his adoptive parents.

February 10, 2001 - Part III | February 10, 2001 - Part IV

I want you to know that while I do have the rest of the season planned out, I haven't had much time to work on it lately. It's possible I may not have something to post for next week, especially with the holiday, as we're hosting Thanksgiving here and our guests won't leave until Sunday. However, I'm going to do my best. I was struggling with some of the early scenes and now that I've gotten those done the rest is already written, essentially, I just need to tweak it.

I want to extend a big thanks again to those of you who've stuck with me. I know this story is different and dark, but I'm grateful to those of you who see the value in it as well.

I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!

I will be posting Love UnSeen later today. I'm actually still writing it, lol, but I will make sure you guys get something to read by the end of the day.


PS - Remember, if you've forgotten what Kai and his pals got up to in the first part of Season 3, you can read the "Previously On..." to refresh your memory. Or you can hit the updated Table of Contents to re-read any episode. Also keep in mind that I'm posting each complete chapter (day) on my blog once it's all posted here, so you can read them in their entirety if you prefer that format. I also accept comments (including anonymous ones) there if you prefer. Happy reading!

Update to the Best Man

So remember last time when a woman replied to John's dating profile?  And he doesn't quite manage to mention that he's a quadriplegic who uses a wheelchair full time?  Well, this is their date:

Chapter 5

Ooh, and I finally made a Table of Contents

Also, thank you again to everyone who purchased a copy of Forget You!  If you enjoyed it and could possibly find time to leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads, I'd be incredibly appreciative!
