1 Hello there! on Fri Mar 13, 2009 3:49 am

Hey guys. My name's Adelay (well, it's not my *given* name, but...). I'm a pansexual pre-op tranny boi...thing (I'd need a whole forum for all my labels Laughing ), with a compartively-simple, amazing cisgendered woman for a partner. I'm a freshman in college. I'm into anime, manga, all kinds of music besides rap and heavy metal (and I make some exceptions there), movies, books and writing (I'm working on editing a novel and starting another one, because I'm a mental masochist).

I've been reading yu+me since this summer. I think I've really connected with it since the dream started since I'm in a long-distance (1200 miles apart) relationship, which makes me really feel for Fiona and Lia. I've read some of lpfos, and now that I have hi-speed instead of dialup I intend to read the rest.

Thanks! It's not an actual name, but shortened from the name my birthname is derived from. This is actually the first place I've really used it Smile

It's hard to summarize the first one, but I'll try. (Hiding the summary of the first one because it might be triggering for some people)

Spoiler:

Basically, the main character was molested by her stepfather, had a child by him at fourteen which she was forced to give up for adoption. Married and in her mid-thirties, she starts looking for her son.

And the second is about two gay men, both having died in the early fifties...one of whom reincarnates as female (aka transman) and the other is still a ghost/spirit due to various issues and their dealing with their situation...not your typical cliche 'magical girl/boy trapped in a girl's body and hilarity ensues' kind of thing

Those both sound pretty interesting and something I would read.

I'd like to read them too! I wonder if it would be feasible to start a writers' group thread - maybe not while the whole forum is in the starting-up stages, but after things get running smoothly.

It seems from the introductions that a lot of people around here are writerly or creative types, and it would be nice to have a venue to bouncing ideas around and getting support and feedback.

Especially for those of us whose creative work often deals with LGBT and/or feminist and/or otherwise "subversive" subject matter, I know it can be hard to plug in with a likeminded creative community. At least in my experience as a mixed-media artist, which I think is really more similar to writing than it gets credit for, I'm a little isolated, and I would love to have people to share ideas with.

Maybe a community of comic fans could bridge the gap between visual and verbal representation Smile

Writers' thread would be awesome.
I'm not much of a writer but I love reading!

Me too; I'm generally more of a visual artist than a creative writer, although I think they're both essentially forms of storytelling (especially when you get into overlapping territory like handmade and altered books, or comics), but I work with writers and am around them a lot as a tutor and I enjoy the process. It might be fun Smile

I am all for a writer's thread. Adelay, your second book sounds SO cool. I'm very interested in the topic of past lives, and how they effect present lives. The idea of ghosts being unable to move on is also something I'm keen on. (Reading Hamlet right now is furthering this interest.)
