Silver Update

I said I would update on Thursday, didn't I? I'm so sorry! Well, it's here now... Part V! Heed the warnings! If you want to avoid reading the part the warnings apply to just stop reading after "The pile growing higher and higher with every hour."
Happy New Year!

Free Friday Single: Mall Stalker

I didn't post an update to my story last weekend due to travel/life stuff.  Today I'm posting what is sort of a short story.  It's actually a scene of my book How to Be Cool, about a guy with cerebral palsy, but I revised it to make it into a complete short story.  So please enjoy!

Mall Stalker

It’s only while I’m driving in the direction of the local mall that I first start to suspect that my obsession with Laura Kramer has possibly crossed some sort of line.

No Love UnSeen This Week

I'm very sorry.

I'd planned to have an episode and had a significant portion written, but today my dad took a turn for the worse and we got some pretty bad news from the oncologist. It's to the point where we have to decide to basically "pull the plug" and let nature take its course. To make things worse, my sister is in Cuba, so it was a struggle to even get a hold of her to tell her the news. (We had thought he was stable when she left.)

It doesn't help that the hospital is being a dick and basically trying to force us into doing things sooner rather than later. (We want to try to wait for my sister to come home before we do anything.)

So I don't have any time today to finish writing or format anything. Hopefully I *will* have something next week, however.

It's possible that In/Exhale may be postponed longer than I intended also as I haven't had any time to work on it lately with all that's been going on.

Thank you for understanding,

Reckless Behavior: Chapter Four is up

Hello, people. I know I usually post in the morning which makes me- (quickly counting in my head) - ten hours late. Ooh, that's bad. My only excuse is, well, the holidays. Lame, I know.

Happy New Year!

Last week:

Molly takes Aster to Glen park after he hits rock bottom. That night, they kiss. Cassia wakes up in Croton's apartment.

And here it is:

Chapter Four 

Edit: I stopped being lazy and made a table of contents. Voilà.

Mistletoe Chapter Two

Ho, ho, ho!! I hope everyone is enjoying their much-deserved holidays!

Unlike Santa, I'm sorta hiding under a rock now, because... well, this next chapter is pretty dang short. 

I'm sorry, guys!! I was working on Part Two when I realised that it was too long to be posted as a single chapter. So, I'm posting a day early, but hopefully, I'll still be able to post Part Three tomorrow or the day after. 

I promise the next chapter will be longer and more satisfying!

Also, a million thank you's to all of you who left comments in Part One. They mean so much to me, and I love knowing that there are people out there reading the random ramblings of my brain!

Merry Christmas,
Nessa L.

P.S. I've done up a Table of Contents, because what was meant to be a two-part piece is probably going to unravel into (at least) a four-part something... heh.

Mistletoe - Table of Contents

P.P.S. Annabelle, I didn't mean to step on any toes by posting this on a Sunday!! I'm so sorry if I did>< Please go ahead and post the next update of TBM if you had plans to.

Silver Update: Christmas Special

Merry Christmas everyone!
This story has the worst timing ever and I decided I could not possibly post the darkest chapter of the series on Christmas Eve... Sorry!! I will try updating during the week though, maybe on Thursday since it seems free, so you will not have to wait an entire week again (also New Year's Eve...). Is that a deal? Don't kill me... today is all about love and so on, right? :-)
Okay, as a peace offering I have a little something for you. It's not necessarily part of the series, but it features Noel! So if you miss him today, read the Christmas Special!
Thanks for being the best readers in the world! Joyeux Noel!

Mistletoe - A Christmas Special

Hey everyone,

Some of y'all may know me from my comments on your posts, and... I am proud to announce my first story on this blog! It's been a work in progress for a while, but I decided that Christmas would be the perfect time to post it. The next (longer and raunchier) installment should be up on Boxing Day.

Please be gentle, guys. Constructive criticism would be much appreciated!

Merry Christmas (Eve),
Nessa L.

Love UnSeen Continues

Sorry this is so late. I literally wrote it all today. Real life is a total cluster, but writing gives me a sense of accomplishment and something to aim for. I hope you enjoy this chapter. Sorry things have been going so slowly.

This one has a tiny bit of "sexy" scene in it. I really appreciate your feedback.

Love UnSeen - 05

Hope you all have a good Christmas and I hope to see you next week.


PS - Missed the other chapters? Read 0102, 03 or 04. (I'll try to make a Table of Contents for next week.)

Reckless Behavior: Chapter Three!

Thanks to all of you who've been reading my story! I present you with:

Chapter Three

For those with memories like mine, here's a recap of last week:

Cassia, Aster's mate, arrives in the Twenty-First Century and looks for Aster. Tensions at work rise between Molly and Samuel. Molly gets to know Aster a little better, and Aster grows frustrated because he can't use his legs. Cassia ends up in a strip club.

The Best Man Update

As per usual, I have an update to The Best Man, in which Kirby tries to hook John up:

Chapter 8

Table of Contents

Also, I'm debating about what to do about the next two weeks, since next Sunday is Christmas Day and the Sunday after is New Years Day, so I'm going to have a tough time posting, and I doubt anyone will be reading anyway.  So maybe two week hiatus?  Haven't decided yet.

Silver Update

This is another chapter from Noel's POV: Part IV. Enjoy!
For those who have missed the previous parts: here is the Table Of Content for Silver.

It feels like we hit a streak of luck, Rachel and I.

Love UnSeen Update; In/Exhale on Holiday Hiatus

Hey everyone,

The situation with my father, my health, and everything else in my real life is a giant cluster. I feel terrible for being so unreliable with my posts lately. Every time I miss a week it feels like I've let everyone down, and I've let myself down, too.

So I decided that I will put In/Exhale on a short hiatus for the holidays and return the first week of 2017. It just takes a lot to not only finish each day but make sure it's revised and up to my usual standard, and I just don't have enough time to do that right now. So I'm hoping that the time off will give me the chance to finish up and polish the next few episodes so I can resume regular posting. I may need to go to an every-other week format, depending on how things go.

As for Love UnSeen, my *goal* is to continue to post weekly without a break. I'm not sure if I can do it, but I'm going to aim for it.

This week's episode is a little shorter than some of the others, but the next couple scenes are pretty long and need a lot of revision from my original, and I figured you'd prefer a short segment than having to wait yet another week for a part of the story.

Love UnSeen - 04

Thank you so much for your support and feedback. Lately I am definitely pushed to my absolute brink, and being able to write and share it with you is one of the few pieces of light in all the darkness.


Missed the other chapters? Read 01, 02, or 03.

Reckless Behavior: Chapter Two is up!

Hey guys! New week, new chapter! Here's a little recap, since this story is going to get complicated. Hold onto your seats.

Last week...

Aster arrives in the Twenty-First century, where he meets Molly, the owner of a failing speed dating business. Molly lets Aster crash at her place, but when Samuel, Molly's boyfriend, suspects she's being unfaithful, Molly doesn't feel so kind toward this stranger anymore...

And this week!

Chapter Two

No Stories Again This Week, Sorry

I'm really, really sorry.

I had every intention to not only finish the last day of In/Exhale so I could resume posting, but also to continue Love UnSeen.

However, Friday night we had to take my dad to the ER, and he's been in ICU since.

As a result, I've had very little time to write between shuttling family to the hospital, hosting them at my house, and visiting him.

I hope I won't lose my day, but I understand if it's taken away from me.

My plan *is* to post at least every other week until I can get back to weekly posting.

Right now he has been improving, but I have no idea what condition he'll be in if he does make it through this, so it's possible I may have a lot to do in the future as well.

This is on top of all I'm dealing with with my own health.

Writing and sharing my writing with all of you is really important to me, and I'm really frustrated that I let you all down again.

Thanks for understanding,

Reckless Behavior

Hey guys, it's Gemini! Wow. It's been a year since I've been an author (and avid reader!!!) on Paradevo, and man, I got to say it again: I love this space, where you can find other devotees, and read and share stories that we all can appreciate. I'm also starting to realize how stupid my pen name sounds, but it's too late to change that...

Anyway, I hope y'all enjoy my new story. I haven't seen a whole lot of sci-fi here, so I guess it's something new. Enjoy, and please comment with any suggestions and critiques!

Update on Silver

I know that this story is different from what you are used to on this board and from what I have posted so far. I immensely enjoyed writing it and I hope you can begin enjoy reading it. I still believe in this one.

Thanks to those who did read it and gave feedback! Your comments mean the world *hugs everyone*

To those who are still undecided I can promise that this second part is far less dark than the first one, much easier to read, and *drums* in the guy’s POV! Give this story a chance and start with Silver - part II! (No, don’t start with it, you will probably not understand a thing).

(And comment, if you like it. Or did not like it. Or want more glitter and unicorns. I will try next time ;-))
Thank you.
(Maybe it was also just Thanksgiving.)
