Reckless Behavior Update!

Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a fantastic week. Mine sucks, mostly because of the cold, the snow, the ice, etc. Anyway, enjoy this week's chapter!

Last week: Dr. Moscowitz warns Samuel about Molly's guests. Aster and Cassia have sex. Samuel pressures Molly to make them move out. Cassia operates on Aster, and remembers when she convinced Aster to come on the mission. The operation is a failure.

Update to The Best Man

So in the last chapter, a mugger toppled John's chair and was threatening Kirby.  Here's what happens next...

Chapter 12

Table of Contents

And unfortunately, this is the last chapter I have written in its entirety.  I'm not sure if I'll take a little hiatus from this story or finish the next part if I'm motivated.  I know a lot of you are enjoying this story, but it is hard to write when you're not "feeling it."  I do have a lot of other things in the works though.

Do you remember Skin and Scars...? It's back!

Hello everyone. It's been a while since I've been around these parts. A lot has happened in my personal life this past year that has prevented me from writing (and posting). I do apologize for making you wait on an update, I know that's frustrating. Good news, however... I have returned with more material! I have more chapters written of Skin and Scars, and I can now post regularly. I am wondering about the days that are available for posting. I'd like to post my updates every other week. From the looks of the past few months, it seems like Friday might be a good day? (Starting with next Friday, if possible.) Correct me if I am wrong on that though.

In any case, I am back, and would like to get the new material out to you all (if you'll still have me that is...)

Reckless Behavior Update

Good morning, or afternoon, depending on where you live and when you read this. This week is Chapter Eight of Reckless Behavior. I've been waiting forever to post this chapter because... Well, things get hot. Fan-your-face hot. I'm not going to give spoilers, but you can check it out in the link below:

Chapter Eight

Table of Contents: Right here.

Last week:

Aster learns that Molly requested him for her mission. They are certain that Andrew is not Croton. Aster shows Cassia what it was like to be paralyzed, and Molly tells her former best friend, Jenn, that she's in love with Aster.

New Beginnings - Chapter 2

Hello readers,
Thursday again and I'm back with another chapter of my new story. First off I want to thank the readers who commented, it really means a lot to me.

I must admit I was hoping for more people to give me feedback since this was a first chapter of a brand new story and I am still nervous about it. Because the story is different for me in its POV, the characters, the setting, a mixture of reality, fiction, and fantasy and everything else, I would have liked to see what people actually think. I keep thinking "Oh God, I hope this will go over well"... I try to focus on the number of "hits" and just hope people like what they are reading but it's difficult with the "invisibility"...

I don't know about other writers, but putting a story on here takes courage for me, I'm nervous every week when I finally feel the chapter is ready and I dread overseeing mistakes or something in the story line that would be dumb. I sometimes reread and edit even after I post.

My last story was strange too with the whole nightly ordeals that my character went through and I was always worried that the story was too out there. I feel the same with this one and I sure hope "it will go over well." I wish I would have more confidence but I just don't have it. At the same time I want to share my writing with people who "get" it.

Anyways, enough about my insecurities. I really and truly hope you do like what you are reading and don't feel that it's dumb. I'm assuming the one's who read but don't comment still like it. Thank you for taking the time and for your interest.
I give you a somewhat lengthy Chapter 2 of New Beginnings and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading.
Hugs, Dani

Love UnSeen Continues

Sorry for the long delay.

In the last part, Dan moved in with Jackson, and they went grocery shopping and then had some homemade gumbo together. It was a chance for us (and Dan) to experience what shopping and home life is like for Jackson.

In this segment, it's a couple days later and Jackson and Dan are settling into their life as roommates. Jackson has agreed to tag along with Dan for his photo project, and they're visiting various sites around the city so Dan can photograph them.

In this portion, Jack and Dan visit a cemetery, ride the streetcar, and then have some coffee. I'm sorry if it comes off as disjoined. I kept getting interrupted while writing this and I'm on some new medicine that's left my brain a bit scrambled but I really wanted to get something out for you guys this week.

Love UnSeen - Part 06

It's been a pretty crazy couple months and writing helps keep me grounded. Thank you so much for all your condolences and well wishes and support. It's nice to know that I have this community to fall back on.

And for those Kai lovers out there don't worry, he WILL be back. I'm not sure exactly when as I've been struggling with the writing so much but he's been my support through all of this as crazy as that sounds, so he'll definitely be coming back.


PS - Still no formal table of contents but I'll do a ghetto one here for those of you who want to catch up on the story.

PPS - No promises that I can make anything next week but I'm going to make it my goal.

Reckless Behaviour Chapter SEVEN!

Do I sound excited? I'm sorry. It's just that this is the farthest I've gotten in writing a story on Paradevo (my other stories are under six chapters). As a huge procastinator, this is some serious progress.

Enough chatter. Here's Chapter Seven.

Table of Contents: Click right here.

Last week...

Aster doesn't let Cassia operate on him. The two of them visit a geneticist, who gives them some alarming news. Cassia accuses Molly of changing Aster. Aster and Cassia begin to doubt if they are really meant to be together.

Nothing This Week, But Hopeful For Next

I'm sorry this is so late.

I had really hoped that I would be able to get something up today, but I had a rheumatology appointment that took most of the day and then I was just so exhausted I fell asleep instead of doing the work I had planned.

But my writing is so important to me, now more than ever, so I will be doing my best to continue posting. The reality is will probably be every other week rather than weekly as my energy level has been somewhere between a 90-year-old grandma and a sloth with the flu, half because of medicine and half because in addition to everything I'm already dealing with I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia today. Yay. Lucky me. (And people criticize me when I heap everything on poor Kai, weary sigh.)

Anyway, thank you all for your support last week. My dad's illness and death was all pretty sudden it's still been hard to process for all of us. Spending time at my mom's house this past week, it kept thinking that he must have just been in his office and he'd be coming out any time, but of course he wasn't.

Chap. Six of Reckless Behaviour is up!

Hey people! It's that day of the week and Chapter Six of Reckless Behaviour is up. Read it right  here.

Thanks to everyone  still reading my story! I know that because it's a sci-fi I put in parts to build up the story that aren't necessarily so devy. But thank you for being patient, because we're getting closer to the good stuff, I promise...

Table of Contents: Here.

Last week:

Molly finds out that Samuel slept with her best friend, and Aster gets drink after seeing Cassia. Molly sleeps in Aster's bed. Cassia connects with Aster's mind, and isn't happy with what she sees.

The Best Man Updated -- FINALLY

I apologize profusely for not updating for the last few weeks.  This next bit wasn't quite ready to go and then there were the holidays and I caught a bad cold (of course).  But I've finished it off just now and it's ready to go.

In this chapter, Kirby helps John look at tuxedos.  And things get a little intense when they need to take John's measurements.....

Silver Update

I take her arm and sling it around me, imagine for a second she might never leave, we might stay like this, wrapped around each other forever, until my muscles have gone lose and normal and my body free of pain, and for a moment I feel universal happiness.

Aaand... this is Part VI! Thanks for your wonderful comments :-)

Hi on Thursdays

Hey everyone,
wishing you all a very happy new year 2017 and hope it will be a great year for us all. I know 2016 kind of sucked for me but one good thing was my story "For The Love Of Not Walking" happening here on the Blog. Well, I have been busily working on my next project and I think I am just about ready to post. I scanned the Blog as of lately and it looks as if Thursday is free again for my taking. Did no one else claim Thursdays after I finished my last story? Let me know if I'm wrong. If that is the case I'm planning on posting my first bit on next Thursday, 1/12/17. If Thursday is taken, let me know and I'll wait. Until then,
Yours truly,

No Stories Today

My father passed away this morning.

My mother got a call as she and my sister were coming to pick me up so we could go to the hospital. We had planned to remove him from life support yesterday, but due to the hospital's delays were unable to and had decided to do so early today. Instead, he left us first. He held out long enough to see my sister when she came back from Cuba.

My father and I had a very tumultuous relationship (that you may see come out in Jon's relationship with his adoptive father or Santiago's relationship with his father, among other relationships in my fiction), and yet it's still difficult to lose someone so integral in your life.

The next few days I'll be focused on helping my mom with final arrangements and helping her cope, but I do hope to have something for your next week. Probably not In/Exhale, although I *will* be continuing that story as soon as possible.

Thank you all for your support and understanding.

Reckless Behavior

Hello! I present you with chapter-five, brought to you in the middle of the night on a Monday. Of course, you'll only see this  8:30 on a Tuesday. I love this 'set date and time' thing.

Last week:

Molly hires Aster to improve her fledging business. Cassia searches Crouton's house, and finds nothing suspicious. Molly buys Aster clothing and takes him to her Speed Dating Event. Aster sees Cassia with the bartender.

Oh, and here's the
