Author's Note: This is a side piece to the novel that demented_dee and I wrote. We did a read-along for the Y!Gallery community last night that went quite well, and this is kind of a sideview for those that couldn't be in on that. Darkprism has read this and approved Clark's actions in this piece. I don't intend to "publish" this story anywhere but online.

For me the novel is a romance between two people who, through life circumstance and personality, have become rather hardened against emotional involvement. Meeting each other, and a set of new circumstances finally lets them allow someone to love them. That they're two men is... well... part and parcel of the whole problem. *laughs softly* I don't think of it as porn, as there's a lot of depth to both characters and the plot is very character driven. It's more like one of the het romances I've read where the explicit sex is a part of the character development.

So I'll persist in calling it a romance, and stick to my guns on that. *laughs* Anyway... I hope you enjoy this little interlude.

Suuuummer Time...

...and the living is eeeeeasy...

Though completely stuffed full of things to do and people to see and things to make and paintings to sell and consultations to fulfill. And it's good. I've also started The New Rules of Lifting for Women by Lou Schuler that sophiap recommended for me, and it's made for some really amazing workouts.

We're swimming nearly every day in the neighborhood pool, and the heat's been averaging in the low-90's, but today it was in the 70's and raining so hard it nearly put out the fireworks stand fireworks we were using at our neighbor's party. We also had a friend from Callahan's days (Johanna) show up at our doorstep and they're staying for the night before going to a family reunion.
