I was challenged by Geron Kees to write a story that wasn't British Public School. I did point him to my back catalogue, but I took up the challenge in Yuu and Natsuki.

Because he challenged me I let him beta read it. He says it's good enough to be posted.

Apart from the British English spelling, and the very Modern-England names of the girls, and one or two lines about where Jer lives, this could be anywhere in the world, even the harsh world of the US High School. So I hope I've risen to Geron's challenge to write a universal story.

The story is on Nifty. It arrived there late on Friday, US time, and, judging by the graph below, it has not only been read, but been useful:

http://forum.iomfats.org/?t=getfile&id=2781&private=0

You can see the spike in checking that page out. With luck there are now some gay folk who understand arses a bit better, not just Jer and Ben. Almost caertainly this is the Nifty audience, not the iomfats.org audience.

The spike hasn't carried forward to the other pages in the series. Maybe they'll pop back after they've had a firkle about in there!

Beautiful, gentle...everything that adolescence should be for a gay boy.

I knew, We all knew Timmy was an author as well as a great webmaster, but in recent years we have seen so little of him.

So, welcome back to your own site Timmy

You're very kind. My muse deserted me after I forced the object of my obsession out of my head. That process caused a lessening of stress. Part of the process of removal was to write the diary of my teenage years as if it were contemporaneous. What I found as I reached the end was that I probably never really liked the boy I was obsessed with.

I have followed his career in latter years (Seriously, not obsessed much!) and watched him move from a public service position to redundancy. Today he is the trustee of two worthy charities, but in his old field. He seems to be a one trick pony. His twitter feed also shows him to be a naive twat, lacking depth or personality. He has become a grey faced, whey faced embryo old man.

This gave me back the freedom to write. I was, at last, able to write what ought to have been, in You Missed a But, and, having got rid of that, a story for Cold, Wet, and Muddy, yet to be released, followed by Yuu and Natsuki. I the last I'd been trying to write a boy who refused love, who wanted to be a slut and who achieved it. The story turned the tables on me instead.

I hope to write more. I've been asked for part 2 of Y & N, but it would simply be a Chris and Nigel clone with a different cast. I've no idea where the two go at the end of the tale, but that is also real life. I try to write real life.

Timmy, I ran across the story by accident on Nifty, clicking on the wrong line.  

I'm glad I did.

Everyone should click on the wrong line! I'm glad you did, too.

There are fewer typos in the one on the site here, though!
