Fridays **Complete (Gay & Lesbian)
25 chapters   —   updated Apr 08, 2013 09:48PM
Description: Jeff is a man of very few words. Which is hard when you're trying to find the words to tell your best friend how you feel... that you're in love with him. Especially when that best friend, despite intimacies shared, claims to be straight. So, Jeff tries to find ways to show it instead and still ends up fumbling. From making wrong assumptions to completely sticking his foot in his mouth, he's afraid all his effort will really amount to is to drive Chase away completely.
Namesta (Gay & Lesbian)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 21, 2013 10:54AM
Description: Nick McMann has worked hard to always be dependable, quiet Little Nicky. Just like everyone has expected from him. That is, until an old friend offers him a challenge and the perfect opportunity to fulfill a private fantasy. For Nick it had always been scary to face the world, but... could he do it as someone else?

“Mothers are all slightly insane.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Apple Inc.
“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

No, I've never tried it but always wanted to. I grew up around the ocean and spent a lot of time in it, but most of it collecting shells, starfish, and daydreaming. LOL!
