Traditions (SFW)

The lovely Nadine has been requesting this one for at least six months. Hugh doesn’t do Christmas. Or maybe he does. Excellent featured image is “Charlie Brown Christmas” by frankieleon on Flickr, used under Creative Commons License 2.0. The tree was small. Truman hadn’t asked, of course. He wouldn’t ask. All Hugh had said was, “I haven’t really celebrated Christmas since my mother died.” It wasn’t meant to be…censure. It wasn’t meant to be a signal he never intended to celebrate Christmas again. So he’d found himself wandering through the trees in the parking lot at Rite Aid, thinking about

The Label Maker (SFW)

This is all M.M. Florin’s fault… This is what happens when Hugh gets a label maker. And his men steal it for nefarious purposes. Despite that build-up, it’s totally safe for work; all the sexy bits I leave to your imagination. (As I’ve just scribbled this on a whim, I’m likely missing the typos I’ll see the next time I read it down the line. Feel free to point them out if you like.) In other notes, the meme above can be found here. Wedding planning and more wedding planning. Will sighed and stretched his back, gathering up the notebooks,

Happy Birthday, Mr Jennings (NSFW)

Happy birthday, AJ Cousins! It’s Truman’s 40th (in November 2015, technically). Hugh decides, finally, to upgrade his phone–at the urging of his husband and boyfriend. When I tossed this idea out there months ago and asked you lot what apps everyone would suggest for him, this is what y’all came up with. Enjoy! The first text message Hugh received on his new phone wasn’t a message at all. It was a picture. Of Will. Specifically, of Will’s cock, somewhat in shadow, camera pointed down, framed by his shorts pulled out from his body, one hand brightly gleaming under the stark

Frazier Learns His Place (NSFW)

Yet another post lost to time and server mishaps. (Hat tip to Denise for letting me know about the total lack of Fraz on the site of late!) “Frazier Learns His Place” is a crossover between The Spinner, the Shepherd, and the Leading Man and the Scientific Method Universe. It should be read after TSTSTLM, and as far as SMU is concerned, the story takes place a year and change after Extremes, and a few months after the lads visit friends for a lovely sexcation in a different crossover. (#nospoilers) Enjoy! So the homeless guy who was sitting in the doorway across the street

Deep Emotions (NSFW)

Once upon a time, I wrote this story, and posted it. I believe it was another one of Judith’s prompts, though that’s more or less lost to time. Then the database died during a server migration and I had to change webhosts and the old “full backup” wouldn’t transfer to the new host, and this post disappeared…until Maria was like, “Did I dream this?” She did not dream it. It exists! Judith wanted, I think, pre-Truman, Will mad at Hugh. Here we are. It falls right around the beginning of chapter twenty-seven of Catalysts. Will sat on the train, trying

Bedtime Stories (NSFW)

One night, on Facebook, someone demanded a bedtime story. I wrote this on my phone while the kid played Minecraft next to me on the back deck. In which the author shamelessly hints at shit ze has no intention of writing soon, if ever. (This would be a good time to say I’m pro-fanfiction: go to it, y’all!) When Hugh was a child, his mother told him bedtime stories. It took him years to realize she was retelling him Star Wars in small vignettes. “Once they were in a bar and a challenge was made. But you know how badly

Let’s Get Hugh Drunk (NSFW)

Somewhere in “Absence and Presence” the lads mention how they should get Hugh drunk. Nadine, in the comments (now lost to the website disaster) teased that she’d really like to see that, and by the way, her birthday was coming up…hint, hint. I can’t resist a prompt, you guys. It’s a sickness. For Nadine, on her birthday. It was supposed to be easier than this. Truman studied the low line in the second bottle—red this time, though after two glasses of white zinfandel Will’s tastebuds were willing to drink anything, evidently—and then studied his husband. Hugh wasn’t drunk. Or if

Absence and Presence (NSFW)

Once upon a time, my friend Judith was going on a trip. “Write me something I can read on the plane,” she said. “What if Hugh was going away for some reason and Truman and Will couldn’t go with him?” Two months later, I finished this. First person, in three parts, from Truman’s, Will’s, and Hugh’s POV, taking place something like a year after Extremes. And it’s about twenty thousand words long, so I’ve also helpfully included it in file formats you can read on your devices, though there’s no cover or fancy stuff. Just words. (I…have not looked at

Rules (SFW)

Ask and ye shall receive, my lovely red hots! This was already written (this was written in my head before the season was even done, another bunny inspired by a random Wendy email), but I have particular affection for it. This takes place after episode four of Red and Bad, Serial Two, and about a year and a half after Surrender the Past. What happens when Will and Red show up on Nick and Bernie’s doorstep, to pick up Nick for Bottom’s Brunch? Nick answered the door and froze. “Hey, Nick. This is Red. Red, Nick.” “Shit. Hey, Will.” Nick didn’t

The Housewarming Party (SFW)

I leave a lot of open loops in the Scientific Method Universe books. More than really makes sense, but I’ve been writing these characters for so many years (and there are so very many stories I have yet to tell), I indulge myself. One of the open loops after The Boyfriends Tie the Knot was about Jeremy and Will. I played with it a little in “Brotherly Love”, but it still didn’t satisfy me. It wasn’t enough to be a book, it was too much to just be a scene. And so we have this bit, from Jer’s perspective: “The Housewarming Party”.
