wow it's been nine years since i joined this site.. let me tell you, i can't believe that's all it's been. it feels like centuries have passed since i was that 'young, not-so-innocent-but-still-naive' eleven year old girl. i'd like to say i've changed for the better but i feel like that's not saying much. i appreciate everyone on this site. all my favorite authors, most of which know who they are. it's been sad but rewarding to read so many stories as they are created, some were finished while others weren't. it's been bittersweet at best. but i know i've learned from the talented writers who gift readers with such wonderful stories.

i don't know how much longer i'll linger here, but i know that one day i might have to leave. still, thanks everyone on this site for the wonderful stories.

love,

-JB
(aka MistressELEMENT)

ps. i'd also appreciate it if anyone who reads this would look at the entry below. i'm looking for two stories. thank you


HELP HELP HELP HELP HELP HELP HELP

okay, im looking for 2 stories. one is about this guy who saves a kid from walking into the street. im pretty sure the kid's deaf, but the man doesn't know it and starts to get angry while they're in some kind of restaurant. then the kid tells him he's reading his lips or something. its male love, its old, and i dont remember its title at all. help meee!

the other one is about a gay journalist that goes to write an article series on an author who writes gay cowboy books. i can't find it. it was called Way Out Here, the title was taken from josh thompson's song. i can't find it, pleeease help!


MistressELEMENT is now officiallyi, just baja. :)
aka: JB. hahaha. finally! it feels great to shed the old name. love to everyone i've ever known on here.

JB

It's gotta be etched in stone somewhere. one-shot.
