Be Myself Chapter 42: 41 Second Chance, a young adult fiction | FictionPress

New chapter of Be Myself! now available for everyone’s delight! 
I managed to post it on time even though I didn’t have an actual chapter ready until 3am yesterday… kudos to my awesome editor who immediately started working on it as soon as I went to bed (perks of having an editor who’s in the US and eight hours behind you…)

Oscar is beginning to recover, but just when things start to look up he is visited by an unsettling dream…

You can find it in Gay Authors too.

The Orchestra - Sinfónía Lífsins Chapter 39: 39 - History Walkers Sleepover Marathon, a romance fiction | FictionPress

New chapter for The Orchestra!

I was going to post it yesterday, but due to some problems on the trip back from London (namely, signal problems that resulted in me getting a train to Edinburgh and then going on to Glasgow) I was way too tired to think about it.

Anyway, this chapter has the first asexual representation in the story, and thus it’s very cool. 
And I spent most of my birthday writing this chapter, so please read, comment, and treat it as my birthday gift.

The Orchestra Sinfónía Lífsins- Chapter 38: Vác Steals the Show

The ISO sends a message to all those who want Dmitri gone.

And then a certain clarinettist (Hero of Another Story, in all meanings of the trope) decides to host a TV marathon/sleepover party to cheer everyone up. Siggi was not all that thrilled, but Dmitri did promise wild kinky sex afterwards, so…

This chapter can be read through FictionPress and Gay Authors.

The Boxtrolls is transmisogynist

phoenixhobbit:

So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.

I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.

TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.

Be Myself Chapter 40: 39 Blessed Escape, a young adult fiction | FictionPress

So, after the evilness of last week’s Be Myself! chapter, I decided to update the story one week earlier. Sadly, it means no update for The Orchestra this week, but I don’t think Be Myself! readers care that much.

Warning for blood, description of injuries, and hospital scenes. 
I did try my best researching everything, but feel free to point out if I got something wrong in the medical side of things.

Be Myself! will be updated again on the 28th of September. I will update The Orchestra on the 14th and 21st.

Bisexual community:
We define bisexuality as attraction to people of the same gender and different genders.
Biphobes:
Aaaaactually bisexuality means "attracted to men and women" because the prefix "bi" means "two".
Bisexual community:
Okay, that's a really narrow and finicky way of examining things, but yes the prefix bi means two. Which means that bisexual people are attracted to two different gender groups. Like, for example, people of the same gender as them and people of a different gender than them. Which is what we said. Our definition of our own sexual orientation is still right even with your narrow and finicky standards applied to it.
Biphobes:
Sorry, I didn't catch any of that. I have my entire head and neck firmly lodged up my own ass. Bi means two. Bisexual means

Be Myself Chapter 39: 38 I'm Not Your Perfect Son, a young adult fiction | FictionPress

MASSIVE TRIGGER WARNING FOR CHILD ABUSE AND VIOLENCE.

Oscar goes visit his parents for the last time. It’s enough to say it didn’t go as planned. 

That said, the next chapter has already been written. Depending on the feedback and I get for this chapter, I might update the story sooner. 

Time to guilty-trip me, because yeeaaah I feel so bad about this chapter. T_T

Anonymous asked: Oh please. Capitalism: To each according to one’s own hard work. Read a book! :)

southern-feminism:

Oh, shit, you’re right… OH WAIT. What’s this…


Working poor? But I thought hard work always rendered wealth????? OMG LOOK AT THIS SHIT THOUGH.

More poor people in America have a job than not??? WHAAAAATT? But, graph, anon told me hard work yields wealth!

Well would you take a fucking look at this. Do you know what this means? Not only are all these hard workers poor (but hard work makes people rich????), but capitalism is also hella racist. Socialism and communism both give everyone the same opportunities, but why would we want that?! That would take white privilege out of the world of work. Equal opportunity for all colors? Fuck that, right? I prefer capitalism, where the class system and minimal regulation of business allows blatant discrimination in the work place.

I mean, surely the rich get rich by working hard and being honest. This is America, right?


Whoa! Excuse me, graph? Anon told me hard work yielded wealth??? This can’t be right! The actual workers of corporations bust their asses to make the profit for the corporations??? If this were the case, that would mean that CEOs *gasp* STEAL profit from workers???? WHAAAATTT?????

Hard work does not render wealth in a capitalist setting, or the term “working poor” wouldn’t exist. Look around you! :)
