I just posted a fun, short little story on my Strokes site where my characters give each other gifts. It was a lot of fun to write (and was inspired by a gift my coworker gave me this past week).

Story: The Season of Giving

Enjoy!
tarotgal: (Strokes)
I've been wanting to get a domain for Strokes for a while now, and there was a deal through work I just couldn't resist with .INK (used for everything from tattoo artists to writers). I spent yesterday setting up the new website. it's more limiting than what I'm used to, but I definitely had fun with the included images for headers. There's a blog there as well, where I'll post thoughts about stories and announce site additions.


And thanks again to those of you who subscribed to the newsletter. You make my heart glad.
tarotgal: (Breaking Down)
So... one of the ways I work through things is with my characters. I've been trying to write this story out for days now. Bits keep coming to me at random times, and sometimes I felt too emotional to write any of it down. But today I took all the scrap paper notes and bits and managed to get my thoughts about the shooting in Orlando down by way of my characters: http://strokes.kintailscape.com/stories/StrokesStory-AfterOrlando.html

It's been emotional for me, having just attended my first pride parade the day before. It was such a horrible feeling to be so happy and excited and then be so devistated and shocked and saddened.

I'm planning to attend a vigil tomorrow evening. I've been a little scared about going, in case it gets targeted or something horrible like that. But I really need to just take Sweetie's advice and be brave more often. I think it'll be good for me to go for a whole lot of reasons. Mostly, I just want to do what I can to honor and acknowledge the victims and show my love and support.

I finally started & finished a project I've wanted to do for about a year now: pride flag flashcards! I've got them up in the downloadables section of my Strokes site. I could have kept going with some more of the unofficial flags or the fetish flags, but I figured 32 flags was enough to start off with, right?

let me know if you spot any errors!

92. Office
(Original fiction- Strokes, Nik & Robert)

“Bling, would you sthend Robert up?” Nik stood at the wall of security monitors, watching one of the club’s drivers sneezing repeatedly into his sleeve. He saw the security guard head down to him, speak, and then send him to the office.

“You wanted me, Boss? Ready to h-head home?”

“No, but you are. You caught that cold going ‘round. You think I’d let you drive around sthneezthing like that?”

“I-I-I-hahhhhTshooo! hahhhTISHooo! hahTIHKShhoo!” Robert flopped onto the office couch and flung an arm over his eyes.

Nik sat down next to him and patted his shoulder. “Julia’ll drive you home.”

80. Clinic
(Original characters-Strokes ‘verse, Olly)

hehh-IHGGshhhhh!

ahhhShihhh!

ehhh… ehhhPtshhhh!

Hand to his forehead, Dr. Walsh glanced around the free clinic’s waiting room. It had been packed for days.

ih-ih-ih-ih-IHhptchooo!

HUHSchhh! HURShuhh! HURSCHHHH!

ahh… hahhh-Hahfshoo!

This happened every year around now, and there didn’t seem to be any sign of letting up.

Ehhshxxxshh!

Yihfshhh!

“HuhWuhffshh!

A double shift of this would be draining, but there was no alternative, with half the clinic’s staff home sick.

AhhhShoo!

Ihhktchooo!

hih-hihTshh! H’Teshhh!

“Alice?” He walked over to the check-in desk. “I think you’d better put in for another order of tissues immediately.” He sighed. “And I’ll see whoever’s next.”

77. Spring
(Original characters-Strokes ‘verse, Coyote)

“When the lights are off ah-and-hahhCHISchhhh!” The discordant sound of instruments cutting off made Coyote wince. He turned, smiling sheepishly at his bandmates. “Sorry. Again.”

“Maybe our band’ll have a spring hiatus?” suggested Alex.

Coyote grabbed a tissue from the box on an amp. He’d already taken the strongest dose of allergy medicine and he still couldn’t shake the sneezes completely.

“Maybe we can hide him in the back,” Fenton joked.

Franco held up his drumsticks in offering.

Coyote shook his head. “I sound like a three-year-old on the drums.” He sniffed hard. “C’mon. Let’s take it from the top.”

74. Humiliated
(Original characters- Strokes, Pit & Sweetie)

“It’s not that bad.” Sweetie was the fifth to come to Pit’s bedroom to try reassuring him.

Pit lay in bed, back to the door. “I sneezed on the turkey.”

“Not your fault you’ve got a cold.”

“My nose… won’t let me forget. Wait, I ha-hah-hih-IHJJSCHHHHH!

Sweetie walked over and sat down on his bed. Pit curled up as much as he could with his sizeable belly. Which rumbled. “Come back upstairs. I’ll heat up your plate.” He rubbed Pit’s back.

“No. I can’t face everyone yet.”

“Then I’ll bring our plates down. No one should eat alone on Thanksgiving.”

57. Flu
(Original characters-Strokes ‘verse, Sweetie/Jamie)

Everything was ready. Three blankets and four pillows on the couch. A bottle of Gatorade, a sleeve of Saltines, and a box of tissues on a small side table. His favorite video game in the system. Now Jamie needed his boyfriend.

Back in their bedroom, Sweetie would not move. “Everything hurts. Hah-hah-TJjjishxx!

“But I’ve got a nest ready for you downstairs.” He petted Sweetie’s head softly, knowing he was fever-sensitive.

Sweetie moaned in pain and closed his eyes.

Jamie headed back downstairs. It would take a couple trips, but if Sweetie couldn’t go to it, it would come to him.

39. Pillow
(Original characters-Strokes ‘verse, Sinclair)

heh-hehShffffff! hehshfffmm!” Sin lifted his head from the pillow he was hugging. His nose was runny and sniffly, but not ticklish anymore. Good. With any luck, none of the guys had heard it. He might be able to get out of the house without anyone knowing he was sick.

Sin couldn’t miss the Jackal’s first game of the season. It wasn’t as though he was actually playing. Jamie had coached a game sick once; Sin could as well. Oh no. He buried his face in the pillow again. “h’Shhffffffff!

There was a knock at the door, and Sin’s hopes vanished.

I've got a new story up. It's one I wrote during NaNoWriMo this year. It was inspired by a comment I made to a coworker after she asked me what some of the letters in LGBTQIA stood for.

It's Olly again. Apparently I feel a kinship with him lately. Can't imagine why. Here's the story:

ALL OF THE SQUEEEEE!

Guess who FINALLY self-published a collection of Strokes stories?! I'm probably the only one who'll ever read it, but I'm still really proud of myself. Can't wait to get it in the mail and look the proof over before it's available for sale.

It's a collection of seven stories about Sinclair that I've been working on for a decade now. I sure took my sweet time with them. LOL But I've been working for the past few weeks doing nothing but rewriting and editing and putting together crappy cover art. I freaked out over the back cover tonight as everything I wrote sounded perverted. I've literally spent the ENTIRE DAY in this chair doing nothing but working on it. The formatting took bloody forever. It's been 11 hours of sitting down and my butt hurts. But I'm so happy! My little Sinclair in his own book! Can't wait to hug it and squeeze it and love it and then find all the typos I should have caught. LOL

But it's DONE!

SO MUCH SQUEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary: More of what happened during Christmas 2006 with the boys.
Notes: Written during my 12 Ficlets in 12 Days in 2014 project for SomethingClever

Whole series: http://tgsrealm.tarotgal.net/stories/12Ficlets12Days-2014/index.html

I set this during Christmas 2006, which I wrote about a little in this fic last year. So I had to work within that timeline (so no Sin/Ducky this time). I'm sorry this is SO late for a Christmas fic, but I hope you like it anyway. It's such a pleasure to work more with these characters and flesh out their stories more.
tarotgal: (Strokes)
I took a Myers-Brigs-type test as though I were one of my characters for a swap I did on swap-bot and thought maybe you'd enjoy reading the result. I did it for Nik of my Strokes universe...

For this swap, I decided to choose a character I’ve been writing for many years… but I avoid writing stories with him at the forefront because I have problems understanding him. So I usually just have him on the periphery of a story. I feel like it’s hard for me to relate to him because he and I are so different. But this swap is definitely helping me understand him better. I am an ISTJ (or an ISFJ… I am still unable to tell for sure; I think I’m an ISTJ who desperately wishes she were an ISFJ so the test always comes out ISFJ for me) and always thought Nik and I were complete opposites (turns out we ARE complete opposites in type!). But as I filled it out for Nik, I realized one big way we are similar: we both dearly love the people in our lives and would do anything for them. I feel like that’s great common ground to start with.


Step 1 (paragraph describing the character):
If you look the word “promiscuous” up in the dictionary, you will see a picture of Nik. And that picture will be of an attractive, lanky Norwegian God of a man with light blond hair and eyes that change color based on what contacts he’s wearing today. Speaking of clothes, he always wears the flashiest/tightest versions of the latest fashions. Nik isn’t his real name; it’s a name he chose for himself to honor his best friend, Dominik, after the two went through a traumatic, life-changing experience together and left their oppressive, traditional families in the dust. The two friends run a gay nightclub together in southern Maryland in an ongoing series I’ve written since 2001. Nik handles the personnel and Sweetie (Dom’s name; Nik chose it for him) handles all the “boring” stuff like the finances and taxes. Nik is definitely a people person and a flirt. He always has something going on (and it usually isn’t work, though he does like the attention he gets from being the guy in charge). He would do anything for his friends, including offering them permanent, rent-free rooms in his home. In fact, he and Sweetie bought a big home with the intention of taking in the needy in their community. He has a big wardrobe, a big social life, a big sex drive, a big house, a big club, a big hatred of tradition, and a big heart.


Step 2 (take the test):
Nik got: ENFP
Extravert(89%) iNtuitive(12%) Feeling(75%) Perceiving(33%)
You have strong preference of Extraversion over Introversion (89%)
You have slight preference of Intuition over Sensing (12%)
You have distinct preference of Feeling over Thinking (75%)
You have moderate preference of Perceiving over Judging (33%)


Step 3 (read about the result):
ENFP: Warmly enthusiastic and imaginative. See life as full of possibilities. Make connections between events and information very quickly, and confidently proceed based on the patterns they see. Want a lot of affirmation from others, and readily give appreciation and support. Spontaneous and flexible, often rely on their ability to improvise and their verbal fluency.

Wikipedia says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ENFP
ENFPs are outgoing, creative, and often silly individuals with keen devotion to their ideals and a strong drive to help others. Less developed are their organization, patience for routine tasks, and projection of a serious, committed image. Keirsey referred to ENFPs as Champions, one of the four types belonging to the temperament he called the Idealists. ENFPs account for about 2–8% of the population, including Bill Clinton, Dr. Seuss, and Shannon Oliver-O'Neil.


Step 4 (is this accurate?):
Wow, Bill Clinton? Hmmm. Okay, I can see that. But Nik definitely has the better wardrobe. LOL Actually, this really does seem to fit Nik.
* Warmly enthusiastic and imaginative? Check! The nightclub was definitely his idea and he loves making it a place everyone can have fun. He gets excited at the drop of a hat (especially if that hat is expensive).
* Make connections between events and information quickly? Hmm, I don’t know for sure one way or another.
* Confidently proceed based on patterns? Check! He relies on his personal experiences and “confidence” is his middle name.
* Want a lot of affirmation from others? Check!!! He has strong, core values but needs validation from everyone in his house, even if he has his mind made up. He must hear from everyone that he looks better in the purple top than in the gold one.
* Readily gives appreciation and support? Check! He has his flaws (like driving; he is not allowed behind the wheel ever again), but he gives his support readily; it’s usually up to Sweetie to pull him back to safety sometimes.
* Spontaneous? Hmm, I guess he is.
* Flexible? CHECK! LOL
* Often relies on his ability to improvise and his verbal fluency? He definitely adapts quickly to situations, so, yes, I guess that’s a kind of improvising. And, he lisps, but he can be quite talkative when it’s something he’s passionate about—and he surrounds himself with people and things he’s passionate about. So… Check!
* Outgoing? CHECK!!!!
* Creative? Check!
* Often silly? Check (seriously, his wardrobe alone…)!
* Keen devotion to his ideals and strong drive to help others? Check and check!
* Less developed organization, patience for routine tasks, and projection of a serious image? SO MANY CHECKS!

I had never thought explicitly about Nik’s decision-making process or if he is detail-oriented or big picture-oriented before. I just haven’t written him into enough situations to know if he sits and contemplates humanity or not. But I feel like I know him a lot better now that I’ve taken the time to realize he can be spontaneous and flexible. I will definitely take the knowledge about his type to heart when I’m writing him in the future to make him a little more silly and getting him to improvise. I will also think about the parts I was unsure about above. So much of the rest of the description fits Nik so perfectly that I like the idea of him making connections between events and info quickly and problem-solving in that way. It’s great to be able to apply that to this under-developed part of his character. I hope to make him more playful and more understanding as time goes on. Good luck keeping up with him, other characters!

I hope you enjoyed learning a little about this character of mine. Now I feel bad for avoiding writing him so often over the past 13 years! Sorry, Nik! I realize now you need the attention! I will try not to neglect you so much in the future!

I've posted one of the Strokes stories I finished yesterday. I'm tentatively setting it in Summer 2010. I suppose it SHOULD be Summer 2008, but it's based on actual events that happened in 2011 so I'm going with that date until I decide differently where it should fall within the timeline. That leaves a HUGE time gap and I only planned out about a year and a half beyond what's currently posted. So the date on this is definitely subject to change.

I hope this meets your expectations with the boys! It was such a pleasure to have an excuse to write them. I've got so much planned for Sin & Ducky in the future, it was nice to be able to fill in a few gaps and work on their dynamic a little more. Enjoy! Have a great rest of 2013!
