Title: One of the Boys

Warnings: psychological musings, sexual imagery, sexual identity issues
Summary: It’s hard to belong to a group when you don’t want to belong to yourself.
Notes: Written for the February week 1 contest at brigits_flame, theme: “birds of a feather.” I had to write this much sooner than I wanted to—silly lack of internet messing with my schedule—and I’m not entirely sure that I like the idea I went with, but we’ll see how it goes. I’d love to hear your thoughts! Apologies for some font issues...LJ's been a little odd with me lately.

Summary: New Year’s Eve is a night for new promises.
Notes: Written for the January week 3 mini contest at brigits_flame. This one was a little tricky—it’s very easy to end up playing into the clichés.

The lights from the city gave the sky a yellowish tinge, the sounds of the night echoing off the skyscrapers and swirling up into the clouds.Collapse )

brigits_flame, theme: "carriage trade." I absolutely fail at deadlines so I'm writing this immediately after finishing my regular contest entry--at 1:40 pm EST on the day it's due. Feel free to mock my procrastination in the comments. Did I mention I like comments? I like comments. Enjoy!
