cover of issue #4

It contains "The Healer Trilogy."

Summary and Notes from the author: The Healer was originally posted in June 1999 and was followed a few months later by the sequel, The Boogey Man. Quite a bit later, a final story, Fissures, wrapped up the arc - but only appeared in the zine, Healing, which included all three stories. Fissures has never - until now - appeared online.[1] All three have been thoroughly revised...

Warnings: These three stories have violence and both Original Character deaths as well as one secondary character's death from the show. There is also the death of an animal (which if were doing these stories today, I'd have found a way to avoid - but I chose to keep it since my only intent is to correct grammar/punctuation, etc., not to significantly change the story). The primary subject matter is child abuse and can be stressful to read parts of them. The child abuse is in the form of physical and mental (not sexual). This trilogy is most definitely rated R."

The stories (okay, ficlets) contained here were written for the Moonridge Online Auction but never posted for everyone before now. Most were written to specific challenges presented to me by the winner/s..

  • Finally - Jim is alone for the Christmas holiday.
  • Christmas Eve - Jim is lonely. Blair doesn't live with him anymore, but he thinks he should fix that. Post TSbyBS
  • In Memory - A woman waits for news and remembers. She is soon joined by two others with memories of their own.
  • Slip Sliding Away - After Sierra Verde, Blair is having problems with his vision. Is he sick or is there an otherworldly explanation. Together, he and Jim find out.
  • Apology in the Sandburg Zone - A missing scene for TSBS - obligatory scene, natch, but when you're in the Zone...well, nothing is as it seems
  • "Bo" -: A costume party - and Blair's costume - leave Jim speechless
  • Christmas Junket - Blair, Christmas shopping, and of course, something goes wrong....
  • Fear of Intimacy - WARNING! Some could consider this a partner betrayal - and the ending is unresolved. I AM finishing this story and will post the resolution soon. Missing scene from Nightwatch.
  • "Friending" - Blair teaches Jim about 'friending' and computers
  • Years From Now - Blair asks Jim where he believes they'll be in five years - and gets more than he bargained for
  • It's the Little Things - A missing scene (yeah, one of about a gazillion) for Sentoo
  • It Happened During the Super Bowl - Really? You need one? With that title? Nah.
  • Misplaced - It all started (as these stories often do) with a misplace tube of lube....
  • Vacation - Hello? Jim and Blair on vacation?
  • Words Not Spoken - Blair's leaving - can Jim stop him with the right words? Does he even know the right words?
  • A Four-Letter Word for Easy Insertion - Lube
  • Blair and His Holy Grail - The story of TS through icons
  • Secrets - Explanation required: This was originally a response to a story of Rimilod's (Dolimir) - I think it was the Birthright Series - that had Jim and Blair discovering they were brothers (via Naomi and William). She dared several of us to find a way to create a slash version without the specter of incest. In fact, she double-dog dared us. Well, what can I say? I immediately wrote "Secrets" but never posted it. When one of the Moonridge winners challenged me with a similar 'summary', I went back to it and thought it could fit - with some changes, rewrites, corrections, etc.. So this is the final product of a "Double Dog Dare You" made many years ago. Sort of.
  • A Series of Obsenads - These were posted to Senad back in 2002/2003. Some are as long as 5-6 pages, some only a few lines, but all in either a response to a post, an apology or a challenge....
