Summer World by chrysoprase

Recommended Posts

What is it you like to find in a story? A readily understandable and identifiable protagonist, someone you can hook onto and follow with confidence? The tension of a familiar plotline that is uniquely presented and can still offer surprise? Secondary characters that ring true and whose situations and values are completely their own yet are almost universal to our understanding? The appeal of young first-time love and lust and its effect on the development of character?

How about a solidly good story that leaves its reader caught between tears and a smile, nodding in affirmation? With the bonus of being short enough that it can be read in a single sitting?

Finally—and no small wonder this—a story told in the second person confidently and convincingly, a voice most writers won’t touch with a ten foot pen.

You won’t regret taking a look at “Summer World” by crysoprase, who pulls off in six short chapters a story that deserves to be remembered.

It's strange to see this seven years after it was posted, but I've only just come across this post.

Firstly, a very belated thanks to all of you for the praise; the story was an interesting exercise and one that I enjoyed.

If anyone is at all still interested in reading the story, it is now hosted at IOMFATS - with the same title - under the "Joe Casey" author name, along with other stories. Some of the story's formatting got lost in translation, however ... so be patient. Here's the link:


I no longer have an account with Gay Authors.

Again - many, many thanks!
