Hey everyone, sorry I sort of disappeared there for a while.  (A rather LONG while...)  Here's my situation:

I was cut off from the internet unexpectedly after posting the latest chapter to my other story, Love... Otis.     I have internet access again, but not on my personal laptop computer, so I will be unable to continue this story until I get my laptop repaired.  I promise I will definitely continue this story once I get my laptop working again, and thanks again for all the positive comments, guys!

On the plus side, I already have a few chapters written for this story, so I'll be able to get right back on top of things once my computer is fixed!

Love, tonita.

Chapter 4.

September 4, '08 - 11:07 PM

Dear diary... What a night!  The dance was awesome!  But let me start from the beginning...

After getting home from work (Which was awful, by the way.  I hate hospitals!), I had to wait for Emmet to pick me up.  

I got dressed, did my makeup, put on my wig, and sat outside to wait for Emmet.

I guess my outfit was pretty convincing.  ...From the back, anyway.

It sure fooled my father!  He came outside, all confused, and asked if I needed anything.  

"Can I help you, miss?"  That was what he asked.

It was so hard to keep from laughing!

"Nope, I'm just waiting for someone."  I told him, trying my best to sound like a girl.

But at that moment, Emmet pulled up to the curb.  

"Oh.  There he is!"  I said.  I got up quickly and turned around to wave at my father.  

"Bye dad!"

I swear, I think he exploded inside.  At first he just stood there, dumbfounded, but as I was running to Emmet's car, I heard my dad screaming his head off behind me.

I laughed my ass off all the way to the dance.  

When we got there, Emmet made me stand up and model my outfit.

"You look HOT!"  He told me.

I was really relieved.  I wasn't sure if he was going to like it!

My friend Josie agreed with him.  She loved it!  And she thought I'd be too chicken to actually do it!

After that we just danced the night away.

It was the greatest dance I've ever been to!

Too bad all of that couldn't have lasted the rest of the evening...  

When I got home my parents were fighting.  Again.

And after my father was done yelling at my mom, he came and hunted me

He asked what the hell was wrong with me, why would I go out dressed like a girl?  Not just that, but you look like a whore, Otis!  If you ever wear makeup like this again, I'll see to it that you don't leave this house for a month!

...Jeez.  I'm not a thirteen year-old girl for pete's sake!

Way to ruin a perfect night...

Love, Otis.

Yay... Chapter 4 is finished! w00t.  Just so everyone knows, that dance was really hard to set up. Lol...

And here's a bonus shot of Christine being a dork:

Hope you liked it.  :happy8:

Just a lil' heads up... I added two new pics to the prologue.  I think it needed them.  Smiley

Lol... I have a friend whose name is John.  It's not short for Jonathan, but our biology teacher never quite got that...  That's where the idea for Chris's name came from. Tongue

His name actually plays a mildy important part in the story...  But I had better stop yakking before I give something important away.  Cheesy

Thanks guys!  It's always good to know that people read my stuff.  (Even though there isn't much of it...)

And now, I must write!

Are the prologue pics still up on Photobucket?

'Cause if they are, you can just repost the image codes in your first post.  That's what I did when one of my pictures didn't show up in my story, and it seemed to fix the problem.

Hiya guys and gals!

I know I've just barely started my first story (Love...Otis.), but I was suddenly assaulted by a viciously fantastic idea the other day.  

It's another story about a boy... But it's not really about a boy.  It's really a bit confusing.  Even my main character is getting confused!  Arg... Basically, this is a story about self-discovery.

But if you want to know more, you'll have to wait for the first chapter of the story.  For now, I have the prologue for you to read.  And just so you know, the prologue doesn't have very many pics, but the chapters will.

Warning: Homosexual themes.  Don't like it? Don't read it!

Here we go...



I still remember the day I had to explain my name to Ms. Gordon.  There’s nothing special about my name, really.  But for some reason she just didn’t understand that it’s Chris; not Christopher.

I was drooling on my desk in biology that day, while she was attempting to give a lecture to the class on the structure of a human cell.  Of course, she yelled at me to wake me up.

Only she called me Christopher.

Instead of Chris.

When I corrected her, she started to argue with me.  

“Of course your name is Christopher, that’s what Chris is short for!  Your name can’t just be Chris!”

“But it is.”

“Look at it this way… What name did your parents put on your birth certificate?”

I scoffed and ruffled up my already messy red hair.  “Chris.”

“No… Your name!  Your whole name!”

“Chris Marcus Pax.  That’s really what my mom put on my birth certificate.”

She sighed in frustration and decided to give up.

I heard snickers from around the room, specifically from right behind me.  I glanced over my shoulder at my friend Jake.

“What’s so funny?” I hissed.

“Ms. Gordon’s a fat stump.”  He snorted.  Sometimes his child-like behavior even amused me.  Nobody else thought he was that funny, and that’s why I was his best and closest friend.

I happened to be pretty annoyed with Ms. Gordon at that point, so I couldn’t stop myself from laughing along with him.

Christopher!”  I heard the stump yell.  “To the office.  Now.”

After that day I never argued with her again.

Because that was the day I found out we were moving.  

My mom told me to pack up right as I walked in the door.  The two of us don’t really have much, so it didn’t take us very long to pack our things into cardboard boxes.  

After we were done I walked straight to Jake’s house to tell him I was moving.  


“I dunno.  Haven’t asked.”

“Well… When?”

“Sometime this weekend.”

“You do know today’s Friday, right?”


“Let’s go to your house.  I still want to keep in touch, man, so I need to know more.”

We went to my house, hung out, and exchanged phone numbers.  With Jake’s encouragement, I asked my mom when, where, and why we had to leave.

“Tomorrow, to Salt City, and because I got the job I’ve been wanting.”  She answered simply.

I wanted to complain because it was the middle of the school year, but I never argue with my mom.  Especially not when it comes to employment issues.  She had a chance to earn money, so we were going to take it.

So all I said was, “I don’t know anybody in Salt City.”

“Well just think of this as a chance to start over.  Maybe you can become an artist or an athlete… You keep saying that you wish you hadn’t turned out to be the school slacker.  You can be a different person!  I’ll let you buy some new clothes.  You’ll probably even be able to take advantage of certain hidden assets.”  She smiled slyly, knowing that would keep me quiet.

I glared at her, but I didn’t say anything else about the matter, and when Saturday came by, we drove away from our sleepy hometown.  

I promised Jake I’d stay in touch.  For his sake.


...Well?  What do you think?

Good so far?  Bad?  Don't care?

Go ahead and tell me.  :happy8:

Hey there everyone!  Here's the third chapter of Love... Otis.  I actually took quite a few pictures for this chapter, instead of only around six.  Please enjoy!

Love... Otis.
Chapter 3.

September 3, '08 - 3:15 PM

Dear diary...  I just got home from the mall.  I was there with my (best) friend Christine, and we were looking for something for me to wear to homecoming.  I skipped work, though... But I'll get to that later!

I called Christine to ask if she wanted to go to the mall with me after school.

She said "of course," so I took my mom's car to go pick her up.

...Not without grabbing some cash, though.  Which, unfortunately, I didn't have.  But Kevin always has cash lying around his room!  He never notices when I take his money, anyway... And I always pay him back!  (Secretly.)

The mall was totally awesome...

They had so much cute stuff!

Speaking of cute stuff, I must have tried on a million outfits...

It took forever to find something that fit me!  (Plus we didn't have anything to stuff Christine's extra bra with.  She brought one along just for the occasion! Haha...)

We went out to eat after we were finished shopping.  That was when she offered to let me borrow an extra wig that she has at her house.  (And I get to keep the bra, too.)

I love Christine!  She is my absolute best friend of all time... Besides Emmet, of course.

But Christine and I have known each other since the third grade.  We tell each other everything!  In fact, I told her I was gay before I even told my mom.  I don't know what I'd do without Christine!

I dropped her off at her house after we finished our meal, and then said goodbye and thanked her for her help.

When I got home, I went straight upstairs to put away my new clothes.  Also to avoid my father...

But I noticed something weird when I passed by Kevin's room.  I'm surprised I didn't see it when I took his money!

Kevin had been drawing/writing on his wall.  Little soggy balled-up paper towels were tossed in the corner, as if he had been trying to destroy the evidence of his apparent insanity before mom or dad noticed.

And speaking of my father... I got seriously chewed out for missing work!  He told me that if I don't go to work tomorrow, he won't let me go to homecoming tomorrow night!  

Ugh... I guess I'll be earning Candy Stripes tomorrow.

Love, Otis.

You'll get to see Otis all dolled-up next Chapter.  I think he looks rather cute as a girl... Tongue

All right, even though I promised myself I wouldn't... I went to simmergirl for Otis's outfit.  (I didn't want him to have boobs, lol...)  But I changed up my writing a bit, and chapter 3 will be coming soon.

I like it!  I think it's really cool that you write what Violet sees and thinks, and then tell us what is really going on from a normal person's point of view.

Wow, this is really useful!  I'd like to start making an outfit, but I have a question first... How do I edit an alpha?  Is there a special way to do this, or do I just make the white parts that I don't want to use black?  :/
