  1. The longest sequel begins with but a single dot . . . . R
  2. I am familiar with the kind of emotional toll it takes on a writer to create these kinds of stories. Everyone here is grateful that you did so in the past, and shared it here. Of course, if you decide to pick up your pen (keyboard) again people would be very happy indeed! R
  3. Anyone still want to rationalize the father's treatment of Jamie? R
  4. "Shorts" as in short vignettes -- 5 of them. Here: http://www.awesomedude.com/cole-parker/boys-in-shorts/index.htm I particularly enjoyed "The Caribbean" but all were excellent. R
  5. The issue is that it is rape, forced sex against the will of the victim who is a vulnerable child. R
  6. I am dying to find out what Johnny has cooked up with Miss Jenkins. R

And it was gratifying to discover th
  11. Here: http://www.awesomedude.com/john-s-lloyd/walking-along-the-canal/walking-along-the-canal.htm A charming and poignant bit of nostalgia and renewal. R
  12. It's a great ending, and unexpected. R
  13. Did others find this story as depressing as I did? R
  14. Here it is: http://www.awesomedude.com/cole-parker/betrayal/betrayal.htm Some nice and unexpected twists. Can't say more safely. R
  15. Reading it again, I related more to this story now than in the past because I am going through my own version of grieving right now. I could use a Scott, or even a Jake, or better both, at this moment. R
