June 15, 2019: Imagine #49 Raises Its Pride Flag!
Posted by Comicality


Howdy, Shackers! I hope life on your side of the screen is full of blowjobs and candy! Hehehe!

My laptop is running extremely slow today as it's updating stuff that I probably don't care about, but have to struggle through, regardless. Grrrr! So I'll keep this relatively short!

A brand new issue of the Shack's official online magazine, Imagine, is live! So head on over there and check it out when you get a chance! New chapters from Beldro Mercier, Lindon Weztser, and The Story Lover! "The Bully And The Bullied" returns by Sean E. A new "Brandon Smiling" from MrM. And something new from Ruwen Rouhs called, "The Rainboy's Family". And a few Daydream Short stories from me, as well as some new articles and music for your enjoyment!

Next month will be Imagine's *50th* issue!!! Can you believe it? Wow! Hehehe, we'll be sure to celebrate with something special! So drop in and have fun!

(https://imagine-magazine.org/)



Also, our youngest author, Juju, is a little under the weather at the moment. So if you have any positive vibes to toss out there into the ether for him to get better, please put them out there. We love you, Juju. Get well, soon, bud. ((Hugz))

Also...we are just a few DAYS away from the Shack Out Back's 21st anniversary online! June 19th marks that one late night when I sat down and used a WebTV keyboard to write the very first chapter of "New Kid In School"! And that, eventually, led to the madness and chaos that you're seeing today! LOL! But you know what? Despite a rough ride...through all of the technical problems and the criticism and the hatred and the attacks and the in-house conflicts and the emotional stress and the heartbreaks and the outside attacks that we've suffered over the years...we're still here. We're still standing strong. And we're doing better than ever! I won't say that times haven't been hard, but I CAN say that, after a journey like the one we've been through as an online family and community, I'm confident that we can get through anything. And that brings me comfort. And peace of mind.

So THANK YOU for 21 years of love and support! For always helping me get back up when I fell from grace. And for being a part of something that I believe is doing some real good for the people who just want a place to call home. I appreciate you all, and I hope you'll join the rest of the family this Wednesday to begin our week long celebration for another successful year online!

New additions have been made to the ComicalityShack YouTube channel! So be sure to check that out as well!

(https://www.youtube.com/user/ComicalityShack/)

A brand new "Comsie Q & A" question is up today! I'll be putting up new community questions on the 1st and 15th of every month, and I'd REALLY like to hear what you guys have to say on each topic! We're looking for a variety of opinions, and we want to hear your thoughts. So don't be shy! Click that 'Reply' button and put your two cents in for a future issue of the magazine! This new question is about public displays of affection! I've added my own personal thoughts this morning, so what are yours? Let us know! The question is on the Shack
(https://www.voy.com/15900/), The Library (https://www.voy.com/17262/), the Imagine 'Inner Visions' board (https://www.voy.com/247962/), and on the Comicality Café (https://gayauthors.org/forums/forum/3-comicality-cafe/)! So, whichever forum you frequent the most...the question will be there
for ya! Hehehe, They're all different! See? I told you that I talk too much! ::Giggles:: So go see them all! And look for a new Jukebox Jimmy challenge to go up today too!

Ok, so what happened to me keeping this short? LOL! I'm leaving! Go read Imagine Magazine, and be sure to come back on Wednesday the 19th for the Shack's 21st anniversary online! Cool? Seezya soon! I love you all! And thanks for being awesome!

Stay beautiful!

May 28, 2019: 12th Annual - Random Cake Holiday!!!
Posted by JeffsFort

There are some traditions that were started as a laugh that we refuse to let die. This is one started by our favorite role model and yes, The Fort Family celebrates it to this day...

*Random Cake Holiday* Emailed By Comicality!

That's right! I said 'Random Cake Holiday'! Hehehe! Don't ask any questions, don't worry about the rhyme or reason WHY you should do it...just DO IT! We had a conversation in the chat tonight, and this lack of cake is just unforgivable. So today, I want each and every single person reading this, to go out somewhere and find yourself a piece of cake to eat! I don't care HOW you get it, or WHAT kind of cake it is! But there are just way too many people who have gone TOO long without having a piece of cake!

You can laugh all you want! Feel silly doing it! I don't care! Whatever! Just go out, find some cake, and enjoy it for the simple fact that you CAN! And I'm not talking about some moldy old store bought sliver of cake that you can buy for a quarter at the counter of your local gas station! I mean actual *CAKE*! Go to a bakery, go to a neighbor's house, hit up the old lady that does volunteer work at the resource center in your area, bake your own and give half of it away to someone else who doesn't have cake, play your Cake cd on your car radio..whatever...but don't you DARE let the sun set without getting a taste of that sweet sweet cake goodness! C'mon...don't you want some CAKE??? I do!

The only time we get to have cake is at weddings, birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, and bachelor parties. And that's just wrong! So if you needed a reason to eat cake, then here it is. It's cake day. GO! Get some! Enjoy it! Do it for the simple fact that you have absolutely NO reason to do it other than I told you so! Hehehe! Savor it!

That's right....I'm going to get mine as soon as I get up tomorrow! Believe me! Mmmm cake...

Spread the word!

 

May 27, 2019: Good morning! And Happy Memorial Day! :D
Posted by Comicality

I want to start off by apologizing for vanishing on you guys for the past five or six days! Memorial Day kinda crept on me, and I found myself with a work schedule that was like...WTF??? WHY??? Between that, and family, and kids getting out of school (I always try to do my babysitting part for my cousins and stuff), I didn't have much time to don the 'Dark Knight' mask of Comicality this week! But, after work today, I'm back in full swing again! That includes the newest story post, "Picture Me And You", chapter 8! It's up on the site right NOW if you guys want to read it! So, enjoy, and take a moment to let me know what you think! K? I know that it's been a while since the last chapter, but I ALWAYS come back! Always!

(https://www.voy.com/17262/)

I am finishing up with my contributions for the June issue of Imagine Magazine at the moment! As well as everything else that's in the works! More stories coming! More GFD vampire goodies being edited! More writing tips on GayAuthors for the weekends! More visits to the new Discord chatrooms! More emails! What can I say? I'm an overachiever sometimes! Hehehe! But ONLY sometimes!

(https://imagine-magazine.org/)

Drop by Imagine Magazine when you guys get a chance! This last issue is doing GREAT! And I know June will do even better! The Shack Out Back website will be celebrating it's 22nd anniversary online on June 19th! And Imagine Magazine will be celebrating it's 50th issue in July! so don't miss that one either! Everything that I've been able to accomplish since I first started writing online has been a product of YOU guys watching and waiting, supporting and sending in feedback and comments! So this will be more YOUR celebration than it is mine! Thank you all for speaking up and just...making me smile every now and then! For being a valuable part of the Shack family! For coming to laugh with us in the chatroom! And just for sticking with me, thick and thin, and making yourselves known...even when I vanish on you for long periods of time. Hehehe! I see you, and I appreciate you being a real friend. I love you all! You know I do...because I'll come here and TELL you so!

Take care! And I'll seezya soon!

April 25, 2019: GFD: We Are Many
Posted by Comicality

Howdy, guys and gals! :)

I am sending out a super quick announcement to let you guys know that the party is still going strong! :P

Tonight, "GFD: We Are Many" was posted to the site for the first time! This is a 2 part short, and both parts are on the site now! It's actually really fun to bind all of these stories together to tell one massive story around the "Gone From Daylight" series, and I hope you guys are enjoying it too! Give it a look when you get a chance, and let me know what you think!

(https://www.voy.com/17262/)

I've had a few weird issues posting lately, but...I'll try to figure things out when I have some more time. The stories themselves should be in tact though! So, no worries there!

I'm working on finishing up the enormous finale chapter to "Billy Chase" Book 9, and it will be up on May 1st! So be sure to clear your schedules and get ready for a wild time with that one! Hehehe!

More to come! I've got the day off from work tomorrow! And I've got to wait 8 hours before I can post again! I posted this around...7:30, so...3:30 in the morning? I'll be awake! Hehehe! Seezya then! MWAH!!!

Posted by Comicality

Yes, I'm still awake! Aren't you? LOL!

Anyway, I know that I've been super busy and distracted for the past two weeks...but this '30 Days Of Night' thing isn't anywhere NEAR being done yet, people! I've still got a TON of vampire goodies to send your way! So stick around! Because the show is far from over!

A brand new "GFD" spinoff makes its debut tonight! "GFD: Kings Order"! If your a fan of Comicality vampire stories...and also like King Arthur and the knights of the round table...well, hallelujah! Here's a combination of both! Hehehe! I hope you guys like it! Jump into it, and let me know what you think when you're finished! Cool?

(https://www.voy.com/17262/)

And THANKS for the ebook purchases lately! You new readers just got me to 'impulse buy' Mortal Kombat 11 last week! Hehehe! Because that's on of my favorite thing EVER in life...and if you can't splurge on something you truly love and enjoy every now and then...what else is there? You know? Every single penny that you donate to the site, or spend to grab an ebook, is a HUGE blessing for me! Thank you!

(https://imagine-magazine.org/store/comicality/)

So, it's because of you guys that I'm getting soooo much enjoyment out of life right now! That...and a few other things that I'll be telling you about soon as a surprise! ::giggles:: But yeah...I splurged on a video game. Sue me! :P

The name 'Comicality' CAME from Mortal Kombat, ya know? True story!

Alrighty then! Jump into the new vampire spinoff! And thanks for the emails and support! I'm answering them as quickly as I can. K? Hope to talk to you soon!

Posted by Comicality

I hope you guys all had an awesome Spring Break, and a great Easter weekend as well! I most certainly did! And with a lot of extra hours at work and time with family and all, I think it was good to unplug every now and then over the last two weeks or so! I definitely recommend doing that from time to time. :P

Anyway, the vacation's over! Hehehe! So, feel free to check out the newest chapter of "Jesse-101: Online Celebrity" tonight when you get a chance! Cool? I hope you enjoy it! And please feel free to let me know what you think when you get a chance!

April 17, 2019: Now then...where was I?
Posted by Comicality

Afternoon, people! :)

Yes, I got a bit derailed for a week and a half with a work schedule that was oppressive to say the least! I didn't have a chance to do much more than get enough sleep to recharge my batteries enough to have work drain them again! BUT...I have the day off today! Imagine Magazine is live and doing GREAT right now (https://imagine-magazine.org), and things are back to normal for the time being! Hehehe, you guys realize that Imagine's numbers are already rising to beat March's release...and it's only been a day and a half! So...THANKS, you guys! Hehehe! I hope you guys like it!

Now, I have to lower my head and let you guys know that I made a mistake this time around because my brain was juggling too much at once and it slipped under my radar. Our newest featured author, Sean E, DID submit the second chapter to his story, "The Bully And The Bullied" for this issue, and I missed it! Arrrgh! But that's totally on me! So I apologize to you all for that. The next chapter will be up in the May issue, so if you're a fan of the first chapter, it will continue on as planned with the next release. K? I won't let that happen again!

Hehehe, I swear...I need a Comicality secretary or something to keep my brain working!

Also...the 30 Days Of night updates are still coming, and I'm going to be cramming them closer together now so I can get them all out! LOL! Two weeks blew by me so fast that I barely had time to breathe! Jesus! But "GFD: Body Disposal" just had it's second chapter posted about an hour ago! So check it out, and let me know what you think!

(https://www.voy.com/17262/)

And if you like the whole 'slag hunter' idea from "Gone From Daylight", be sure to check out the completed "GFD: Nightfall" ebook version when you get the chance! You'll love it! It's an action packed vampire revenge tale with a slag hunter mentor. How can you go wrong? :P

(https://imagine-magazine.org/store/comicality/)

Video trailer HERE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oo_fAxHO1c&feature=youtu.be) if you're interested in getting a peek!

More additions to the ComicalityShack YouTube channel will be popping up tonight as well! THANKS for the new subscriptions!!! We're past 630 people now! And it's still growing! Thanks, you guys! Love you lots!

AND...I'm almost finished with the grand finale of "Billy Chase", Book Nine! It is a MASSIVE chapter! Hahaha, the longest one I've ever written for Billy Chase! So you guys will definitely want to be here to witness the milestone! It should be ready on Wednesday, May 1st! Cool?

Gotta run! But I'll seezya in a few hours! More to come! ((Hugz))

Take care!

April 11, 2019: Trying to keep up...
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Everyone!

Generally, Comicality posts himself but there are times when I may need to step in as the mirror site can often add to an already exhaustive release schedule. I don't mind stepping in to help out now in then if you don't mind :)

So, "30 Days of Night" is absolutely taking off this year. yesterday and today continues the launch of some very new and unique additions to the GFD collection. Starting with the third chapter of "GFD: Lost in Shadows" which continues the "Story Starter" that was created for the "GFD Blood Bank" website some time ago. So far it's an awesome read and I myself can't wait to see where it goes.

Earlier today, He released a brand new story titled "GFD: Body Disposal" and I honestly am excited with this release. In "Gone From Daylight" we learn that society has an entire process of dealing with the bodies or "Slag" left behind by those who live in darkness. It's focussed on a few times but this story is proving to give us a unique look at a person's first experiences training to do such an important, yet gore filled job. You may be familiar with the term "Trial By Fire" and I am sure Gus Showalski is as well now. Do yourself a favor and check this story out, seriously :)

As always, Feedback is always encouraged as it lets Comicality know how he's doing and how much we appreciate everything he does for us. You can email him directly at comicality@webtv.net or head over to the voy forum at https://www.voy.com/17262/  and join many other fans in discussions about everything shack related. All are welcome!

Til the next update,

April 9, 2019: The Show Goes On! :P
Posted by Comicality

Before I start with this short email announcement, let me sincerely apologize for being absent for the last three or four days! I got hit with a really BRUTAL work schedule out of the blue, and that threw a huge monkey wrench into the works this past weekend! But, even though I've still got some more obstacles to overcome this week, I have today off, and I'll be working HARD to make up for the time I lost! Cool?

The '30 Days Of night' updates are continuing today! Today, I am posting an official reboot of the "GFD: Lost In Shadow" storyline! This began as a round robin type of story some years ago, where a variety of authors were invited to participate and add their own particular spin to each and every
chapter. But...while it was an ambitious project in the beginning...it's really hard to get everybody on board to add to the site sometimes. Understandable.

BUT...I really wanted to tell this particular story, a GFD spinoff that could be really COOL, if it just kept going. So, I'm officially rebooting the series myself, and I'll be carrying it to completion on my own. It might end up being a very different story from what you might have seen before, but it's a story that needs to be told. So I hope you guys will like it! And let me know what you think if you get a chance! Cool?

(https://www.voy.com/17262/)

The April issue of Imagine Magazine is being put together now as you guys read this! HUGE thanks to you guys who have submitted a few extras for this month! I'll be reading them tonight! And I can't tell you how much it mean to me to see you guys taking an active role in the magazine! You've gone
above and beyond the call of duty, and you get snuggles for that! Hehehe! We need you guys! Thank you for the support!

(https://imagine-magazine.org/)

Also, thanks for the participation in the recent 'Q & A' question! I love the answers so far! I'll be adding my own reply tonight! The question is..."Can a 'Friends With Benefits' situation really work?" What are your thoughts? Check the Comicality Library, The Café, the Shack Forum...or just email me your response if you want. Anonymous posts are welcome as well. We're looking for a wealth of knowledge to be passed around between one another. So if you have an idea...go ahead and post it. I'd LOVE to hear from you!

Alright, I'll see you in a few hours! I've got soooooo many stories and goodies to bring your way! I'll give it all to ya for as long as I stay awake! K?

Oh yeah! I'm going to try to stop by the new Discord Shack Chat tonight if possible! I'm juggling 500 things at once right now, but once my job stops crushing me under its boot...I'll be able to do it all! K?

Hehehe! You guys have given me 100% of your love and support! I see you in my email, and on the boards, and in the chatroom, and in the Magazine...I want to give it back to you, tenfold if I can! I really do!

Love you lots! And I'll seezya soon!

April 7, 2019: Imagine Magazine Q & A Question
Posted by Comicality

Sorry, you guys! This was supposed to be posted on the 1st of the month, but I was having fun with you all in that chatroom that night! Hehehe! But here is the next Q & A question for a future issue of Imagine Magazine! Feel free to put your two cents in by sending an email to Comicality@webtv.net! I'm really excited to hear what you guy have to say on these issues, and I'm sure others will too. So let us know what you think! K?

I'm sure we've all heard the term 'friends with benefits', right? Basically, someone that you're not romantically involved with...but you don't mind getting together to relieve a little sexual tension every now and then. The question is...can something like this really work?

I mean...sure, you have fun. You get a regular access to a sexual release. And you're already friends, so where's the harm in that? 

But...what happens if you DO fall for him, and he doesn't feel the same way? Or vice versa? What happens if one of you falls for someone else in a romantic way? Does that mean the 'benefits' have to immediately stop? And is there any bitter feelings left over if they do? Does jealousy play a part? How temporary is temporary? And will the friendship suffer from being sexually involved in that way? Or is it possible to just be blissfully happy with a healthy, normal, mutually beneficial, relationship with someone that you may not be madly in love with...but fully enjoy anyway?

Let us know your thoughts on this you guys! Seezya soon!

April 2, 2019: 30 Days Of Night - updates continue today! :)
Posted by Comicality

This time, I'm adding "GFD: High Jinx" to the list! This was a fun vampire spinoff to "Gone From Daylight" that I crafted, specifically, around some of my treasured teen readers from the site! Hehehe, why not turn them into badasses in a story that they've come to love and support? LOL!

They definitely got a kick out of it! And now, you guys can get a kick out of it too! Check it out, and let me know what you think when you get a chance!

(https://www.voy.com/17262/)

Now...this is the FIRST chapter of this story, redone and re-edited from scratch! But chapter 2 IS finished, and will also be posted today when I get home from work! There is an 8 hour limit between posts on GayAuthors, and I plan to stick to that. So look for the brand NEW chapter of "GFD:
High Jinx" later on this evening! K?

Enjoy! And I'll seezya soon!

By the way...THANK YOU to all of the new readers for grabbing a bunch of ebooks recently!!! ((SUPER HUGS)) There were nearly 30 purchases this weekend alone! I couldn't be more grateful! Thanks a ton! And I will be bringing more goodies your way soon! MWAH!!!

And the more you guys support it, the more inspired I get! So thanks in advance, and I'll be talking to ya soon!

I also wanted to let you know that I'm going to try to drop by the new Discord chatroom around 10 PM my time tonight! So...if you can stop by, it would be awesome to meet you guys and talk in real time. I can't stay for more than an hour or two, but I'll be around, and in good spirits.

March 31, 2019: Fort Family Announcement
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Family!

As one of our favorite holidays is right on top of us, I'm afraid our plans for it have been unavoidably put off. We got an announcement from our hosting service that there will be some much-needed maintenance being performed on the machines that we rely on for hosting. Which means we can expect intermittent outages throughout the day. Now at first, we thought "Hmmm... Maybe THIS was intended as an April Fool's joke..." before we considered how serious our hosting service takes their job. So, even though all year long we have been planning something a bit out there to make up for missing past April Fool's opportunities, we regretfully need to let it go this year. For those of us who think THIS is an April Fool's joke, we have trained you well but, this year that training will not serve you as well as it should. <giggle>

I also want to remind you all that tomorrow, our hosted author "Garrett D.M." ships out to boot camp with the United States Army. I hope you all were able to send him off with good wishes and I personally can't wait to hear some of the stories he comes home with. Those of you who would like to send him a quick message to wish him luck, you can reach him at his listed email: garret.d.m98@gmail.com. I'm sure he would appreciate knowing that we are all with him in spirit.

Til the next update,
*HUGZ*

March 19, 2019: Savage Moon Has A New Chapter Up! :)

I just wanted to drop a quick announcement to let you guys know that a brand new chapter of "Savage Moon" is on the site! So, if you were looking for the next step towards chaos...it's waiting for you! I hope you guys like it! And feel free to let me know what you think when you get a chance!

(The Shack Forum)

Thanks for all the compliments and support for the newest issue of Imagine Magazine! We've been going strong for 8 months now, and there's no signs of slowing down! So don't miss out on the March issue! And we'll be back with more in April! (Imagine Magazine) We are always looking for submissions, articles, short stories, featured authors, etc! So if you've got any ideas, send them along to me at Comicality@webtv.net and let me know to save you a spot! Cool? :)

Thank you all for sending me some 'get well' emails and messages! It always makes me smile! I am feeling a little bit better! Hopefully, this little illness is on its way back to Hell, and it'll leave me alone in another day or two! So thanks for the virtual chicken noodle soup!

That's it for now! Stick around, folks! We've got a busy week ahead of us! Hehehe!

Love always! And I'll seezya soon!

March 16, 2019: NEW Comsie Q & A For Imagine Magazine!!!
Posted by Comicality

A brand new community question for all of you guys to chime in on for the next issue of Imagine Magazine! Every month, we try to get a variety of answers from you guys on a topic that we feel needs to be discussed out in the open. So if you've got any thoughts at all on any of these issues, please feel free to comment in the reply section below! You can use your screen name or answer anonymously if you prefer. You can also send me your answers at Comicality@webtv.net if you want. All responses will be posted in a future issue of Imagine! So dive in on the 1st and 15th of every month for a new topic! Become a part of the discussion! We'd love to hear what you have to say! :)

Red flags! I know you've seen them before! You've sensed them, deep in your heart. In the back of your mind. Sometimes you just feel it in your bones!

Lord knows that I have!

You see a guy that is really cute, seems really approachable, has a good head on his shoulders and has a lot going for him, right? So maybe you decide to test him out. You get to know him a little better, and maybe even go out on a date together. Sounds like the normal progression towards a happy and healthy relationship, right?

BUT...

Sometimes, you might see a little red flag pop up that tells you that something isn't exactly right here. It might be subtle, and it might NOT be so subtle. Maybe he cringes every time you touch his arm. Maybe he spends the whole night talking about how wonderful his 'ex' was. Maybe he flirts with another guy at the bar. Or maybe he punches a wall because your reservation was pushed back at the restaurant. Somewhere between a few 'off colored' comments, to a lustful grope of your ass without permission...you may suddenly be alerted to the idea that this may not be the guy for you.

But how can you tell ahead of time? For all of our younger Shackers, and some of our older Shackers too, who might be trying out this dating thing for the first time...what constitutes as a 'red flag' when it comes to finding someone to call your own? Are they possessive? Jealous? Do they suddenly pull out a burnt spoon and a lighter to shoot up with heroin? Hehehe!

When looking for a companion, what would alert you to stay away from certain people before that even becomes a problem that you don't want to deal with? Let us know down below!

Chances are...if your first date has a guy asking you, "Do you want to see a dead body? I brought condoms!"...you may want to back out of that situation and run for the hills as soon as possible! Hehehe!

 

March 16, 2019: Imagine Magazine #46 is live!
Posted by Comicality

Good evening, folks! So happy to see ya back again for more goodies! :P

Let me start off by giving you guys hugs for all of the love you've been sending in lately! Believe me, we're just getting started! But the cuddles are nice, just the same! I love you too! Hehehe!

At the moment, I happen to be very ill, and I've been in bed for the last two days. What I originally thought was a particularly nasty flu virus or chest cold...turned out to be Strep Throat. Ummm...I've never had Strep before in my life, and it SUCKS! DAMN, does it suck! And yet, I can't help but to be fascinated by the experience. Hehehe, because it's new.

"Jesus, Comsie! You get Strep Throat, and you're STILL grinning like an idiot???"

Hey! What can I say? Life intrigues me. Bad times and all.

That being said, even though it's a few hours beyond our usual midnight posting, the new issue of Imagine Magazine is up for the month of March! And with me being down for the count with an illness, and our commander in chief dealing with wounded hands and a sprained wrist right now...it was NOT easy getting this up in time tonight! LOL! But you can't keep a couple of good guys down! So enjoy! And be sure to let us know what you think!

(https://imagine-magazine.org/)

Brand new chapters are up this month! New "Brandon Smiling" and "Souvenir" from MrM! New "Let Me Tell You About Bob" from Jules Porter! New additions from Lindon Weztser and The Story Lover! Our youngest writer, Juju has a new chapter of "Duncan: Out Of Exile" this month, and a new chapter of "Golden Bridge Chronicle" from Beldro (Which I'm behind on, but will try to catch up soon!)! And our featured author of the month is Sean E, with his story, "The Bully And The Bullied"! So be sure to check it out, and welcome him to the Imagine family! Look for future chapters in the issues to come! All these, plus your usual collection of extras and bonuses! The goodies that you've come to love and expect from every new issue of Imagine! Including a new chapter of "Shelter" and the finale of the three part story, "Holiday Rush"!

"Holiday Rush" will be released in a day or two, once the publishing goes through at Amazon! So yes...you'll be able to read the final chapter in Imagine, as well as purchase the entire series as an ebook on the same day! Cool? So look for that asap!

One more thing...

For the 'Comsie Q & A' section of Imagine, I' looking to have you guys maybe jump in and add your two cents to some of the topics of discussion that we ask from month to month. The more answers, the better! I will be posting these questions on The Shack message board (https://www.voy.com/15900/), The Library (https://www.voy.com/17262/), The Comicality Café (https://gayauthors.org/forums/forum/3-comicality-cafe/), or you can email me directly at Comicality@webtv.net with your answers! Cool? We've tackled everything from 'gaydar', to safe sex, to heartbreak, to secret relationships, to coming out of the closet. It could really help a lot of people in need, and you never know if your advice and personal experience could make a huge difference in someone's life. Check it out if you get a chance! And respond if you get the urge!

This time, we're talking about 'Red Flags'! Ever been on a first or second date, and the other person did or said something that tipped you off to the fact that...okaaaay, dating him/her might not be such a good idea? Let us know what you look for in terms of red flags when starting a relationship or looking for a partner! The more answers, the better. :)

Ok, so...I've lasted longer than I thought I would...but I'm super drowsy right now. See...sleepy PM medications and stubborn insomniac tendencies are mortal enemies! But I knew that I was destined to lose this battle eventually. Still...FUCK medicine! LOL! I wanna stay awake, dammit!

Ahem...let me regain my composure here...

I love you all! I may have to stay home tomorrow for contagion's sake, but...I'm feeling better than I did yesterday. So I guess that's a plus. Love you all! And I'll seezya soon with more! K?

March 6, 2019: Updates Today!
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi guys,

There was no official announcement sent with this but we have a couple of updates that need to be mentioned to you so, I'll be your guide today! Hehehe!

Today, Chapter 14 of "Left Without Words" is now live on Comicality's Mirror Shack as well the brand new Chapter 23 of "Untouchable" which is difficult to find outside of our home here and the Nifty archives. Be sure to grab a snack and get comfortable. As always, Comicality delivers as only he can!

Be sure to let him know what you think at comicality@webtv.net!

 

February 24, 2019: Comsie Q & A For Imagine March
Posted by Comicality

 

Hi, guys! XD

I'm trying this out today to see if I can get used to using the site a bit more confidently! Hehehe, my technological confidence is usually pretty low. :P But, as you guys may know, every month in Imagine Magazine, there's a Q & A section where we get YOU guys to weigh in on certain topics and let us know what you think! We've discussed everything from coming out, to falling for your best friend, to sexual safety, to masturbation, to our first experiences with pornography. I'd love to keep opening up candid conversations about stuff like this from month to month! And the more these themes may make you blush...the better! Hehehe!

Anyway, I'll be posting a new question every few weeks to get your input. Either here, or you can email it to me at Comicality@webtv.net if you like. And anonymous posts are welcome as well. Just let me know that you don't want your screen name added to the Imagine post. K? Keep an eye on this board for more in the near future! I can't wait to hear what youhave to say! 

Thanks in advance! And i love you all! ((HUGZ))

 Jealousy!


Sometimes, it's something that we can control, or at least keep under wraps in order to keep the peace. But...if you had to be totally honest about it...would you say that you were a jealous person when it came to your relationships?


Now, before you answer...understand that I'm not instantly saying that jealousy is this awful disorder and you're a bad and obsessive person for feeling that way. It doesn't have to always be that severe. Maybe the boy you love is sharing a joke and a laugh with a stranger at a bar somewhere. Maybe they shared a secret with someone that they had never shared with you before. Maybe they're just gorgeous, or have a great singing voice, or a body and six pack abs to die for. Maybe people flirt with them all the time, and it drives you CRAZY, because you know that they could pick any one of those flirtatious guys at random and go home with them tonight if they wanted to.


Whatever the situation, whatever the cause or effect...jealousy is a real thing. It can raise its ugly head when you least expect it, and cause a bunch of problems before you're able to get it back under control again.


So...jealousy! Do you ever get jealous? In a good way, or a bad way? Is there even a good way? What do you think causes it? And how do you overcome it...if at all?

Feel free to leave your replies on the Shack's main message board at https://www.voy.com/15900/92673.html when you get the chance! K? All coments are welcome! And I'll definitely be adding answers of my own too!

February 15, 2019: Imagine Magazine #45 Has Gone Live!!!
Posted by Comicality

https://imagine-magazine.org

Happy 15th of the month! And also, a belated Happy Valentine's Day greeting, directly from me to you! Whether you're with someone special, or just take some time to love yourself...never stop! Love is the one inexhaustible resource that we have. So give as much of it away as you can while you're here! K?

Anyway, a brand new issue of Imagine Magazine is now available for you guys to dive into if you're a fan! We have some goodies waiting for you over there! Also, new additions to your new fave stories! New stuff from MrM, Lindon Weztser, Beldro Mercier, Jules Porter, and The Story Lover! If you guys get a chance, please take a moment to send them a comment to let them know that you're reading! You have no idea how much of an adrenaline shot that is for a writer's inspiration! :)

Also, a special treat this month...our featured author, Juju, has posted the first chapter of his new story, "Duncan: Out Of Exile" in this new issue! Juju is the youngest author we've featured to date. At only 15 years old, I can tell you that he's highly intelligent, articulate, and creative. Not to mention quite 'bold' when he needs to be! Hehehe! So check out his first chapter, and our one-on-one interview about his writing process directly after!

Also, expect your usual collection of articles from me, personally, a brand new chapter of "Shelter", writing tips, fun facts, and a glimpse into the 'Gay Like Me' section on the ComicalityShack Youtube channel...where there is an entire archive of short gay teen films just waiting for you right NOW if you want to check them out!

February 8, 2019: My Only Escape 28
Posted by Comicality

I have to keep this super quick, as I have to work extra hours this week because...dumb people get fired. Ugh! Which punishes us all, trying to cover their responsibilities for them. BUT, that'snot going to slow me down at all! What can I say? I'm in a champion mood this week! ::Giggles::

Alright, first things first...a brand new chapter of "My Only Escape" has just been posted on the site! So check it out when you get a chance, and let me know what you think when you get a few seconds of breathing room. K?

HUGE thanks to you guys for giving me support and feedback and emails, sharing abusive stories of your own. I can't tell you how much it means to me to be this 'exposed' to you all, and having you embrace me regardless. It can be tough sometimes, but as I reach the final chapters of this series...I can honestly say that I'm glad that I was able to hare this with you all. And I have no regrets. It's a part of my life that I would finally love to put to rest...and your love and respect has been instrumental in making that happen. So thank you for that. You've made me a better man for it. And I hope this story does the same for others who have been through the same.

(The Shack Voy Forum)

BIG thanks to you guys who have contributed personal donations to the paypal.me/comicality! Every penny counts, and I am eternally grateful to know that you guys support the site like this! Thank you!

Alright, then! I've gotta run! Life is calling! :P

Have fun with the new chapter! More to come! And I'll be working to finish up Imagine Magazine's February issue this weekend! So keep an eye out for that on the 15th!

January 1, 2019: Hapy new Year! 2019!!!
Posted by Comicality

A swift note today to wish you a happy new years morning! And I wish you guys all the blessings that 2019 has to give!

Don't waste a single minute on sorrow, hatred, or complaining! Let's all make this year of moving forward and finding joy in the life we've been blessed with! K? Quit being miserable! LOL! There is so much to be happy about! Find it, and make it yours!

I have been spending a LOT of time with my family lately these past two weeks, and it has been absolutely amazing! I had a lot of fun! Believe me! But I didn't forget my duty to the rest of guys, k? I'm answering as many emails as I have time for, I've been on the boards, I've been writing an entire HORDE of new chapters for you guys to enjoy, I'm working on more writing tips for GayAuthors, finishing off stuff for GayAuthors Premium, finishing off my submissions for Imagine Magazine's January issue...I even found some time to drop by the Chatterbox Chatroom a few times to talk to you guys directly! So, I've been a busy bee, to say the least!

Obviously...I've only got so many hours in a day, and I can't be everywhere at once...but I'll be damned if any of you say that I didn't try! LOL! So I hope to talk to you guys soon!

That being said, my 'Christmas Celebration' is now gonna have to be a 'New Year's' celebration! Because...family and such! Hehehe! But, no worries! I'm starting right now with the original plan! Cool?

A brand new chapter of "Billy Chase" was posted on the site about an hour ago! And this is almost a TRIPLE SIZED chapter!!! So I hope you guys enjoy it! And let me know what you think when you get a few free seconds away from youtube cruising! ::Giggles::

(Go To: The Shack Forum)

We're not stopping here, of course! So stick around, and I'll seezya later on tonight! Cool?

Love you lots! And thanks for supporting the site! I'll be around to thank you, personally, soon! I just need to make sure everything is nice and polished first! Coo? Seezya then!

December 30, 2018: Happy Holidays!!! :)
Posted by Comicality

I truly hope that you guys had a good time over the holidays! I certainly did! So I've been smothered in family for the last day or two, and will be again this coming weekend! BUT...I haven't been lacking in my Comsie work! I've been putting together some sweet presents for you all over the past few weeks! And it's time to start our celebration tonight! :)

Let me start off by saying that our weirdness with Imagine Magazine has been fixed. It only took a few hours, but everything is secure and in working order again! So drop by and read the stories and articles whenever you like! Cool?

(Go To: Imagine-Magazine)

A brand new chapter of "Jesse-101" has been posted to kick off our Shack Out Back holiday celebration! So dive in and check it out when you get a
chance, and let me know what you think! Now, I can only post one chapter every 8 hours or so, but keep checking back! Because there is MUCH more to come! Hehehe, Merry Christmas!

(Go To: The Shack Forum)

Big thanks to you guys who donated to the Comicality Paypal account for the holiday season! (paypal.me/comicality) ((HUGZ)) Every penny counts, and I LOVE you so much for helping my Christmas be a little bit brighter this year! You guys are the best!

I've gotta run! But more is coming in a few hours! So keep your email open and your eyes glued to this space! Hehehe, we've got a party going here! And this is just the beginning! Enjoy!

Seezya soon!

December 26, 2018: Celebration! :) But a few tidbits first!
Posted by Comicality

I hope you guys had an awesome holiday season! I certainly did! And had a blast with my family yesterday! As you guys know, I was always in Chicago...so I was usually hundreds of miles away from the biggest part of my family for the holidays, unless we made the exhausting road trip to come down and visit for a week and then take another trip back home. But this year, everybody is here. And it was a LOT of fun! So I definitely enjoyed
myself!

Anyway, we've got a week long holiday celebration to power through! And it's starting today! I worked extremely hard on it these past three or four weeks, so I hope you guys like the new chapters! And please let me know what you think when you get a chance!

MANY new stories are coming your way over the next couple of days! So get ready for some good feels and some drama sprinkled in for good measure! All of these can be found on the site, and on the Comicality Library!

(The Shack Forum)

Also, I've sent off another flurry of emails this morning! So, if you've been waiting to hear from me, check your inboxes! I was tied up with family yesterday, but I spent as much energy as I possibly could on emails last night. It was Christmas, so I can do better...but I made an effort to get back in touch with as many of you as I possibly could. K? And I'll do more tonight! I just need to rest my typing fingers for a bit. LOL! My palms cramp up when I do too much at once. You have no IDEA how much that hurts! Owwww! But I'm working on it. Promise!

HUGE thanks to those of you who sent in donations to the Comicality Paypal account as a Christmas gift! You guys are SO damn cool for that! Thank you! You make everything I do online worthwhile! And you inspire me to work even harder to make sure that the stories are up to standards, every single chapter. Thank you!

(paypal.me/comicality)

One other thing before I leave you guys alone...

There has been a tiny hiccup with the server that hosts Imagine Magazine, and it happened on Christmas Day! So getting a tech involved to help out
wasn't really an option. Now, when I say 'tiny'...I really do mean 'tiny'! Basically, there were updates happening online, and they sort of screwed up the security measures that were put in place to ensure everyone's privacy, depending on what browser you guys were using. So, there's some weird generic message that pops up about the site not being secure and people hacking your personal info and stuff. Ummm...no. LOL! That's not happening. The Shack doesn't collect, remember, or share, ANYBODY'S private info. No emails, no IP numbers...nada. It's just a random message that let's people know that the security measures we had in place haven't been updated since the server's been upgraded. So all of your info is totally safe, and the server is more secure than ever. That's just a blanket screen to let everyone know that there were a few hours where our hosts had to work on getting our fortress more fortified. Nothing more.

So, my apologies if you got some cryptic message about hackers and all that. LOL! Trust me...I'm not that important. So click away. And things will be back to normal today or tomorrow. It's just a matter of making sure that everything is in working order like it was before the update happened. K?

Speaking of Imagine Magazine.../*WOW!!!*/

(Imagine Magazine)

I saw the numbers for the individual hits and new visits to the site, and they were phenomenal! Thank you SOOOO much, you guys!!! The relaunch issue back in August was one of the biggest issues Imagine Magazine had ever had up to that point, with over 8 /THOUSAND/ visits from you guys! Things held steady through September and October...but the November issue blew August out of the water with a whopping 13 thousand PLUS visitors for that one issue! And December's issue is already half way towards beating /that/ record, with three weeks left to go! So MAJOR thanks to you guys who have been reading and commenting and supporting this project! I truly believe in it, and I am overjoyed that you do to! Big thanks to all of our writers and programmers who have submitted work and have worked hard to make this project a success! To Jeffsfort, and ACFan, and Beldro, and VampireMystic, MrM, Lindon Weztser, Owen Mendel, The Story Lover, Jules Porter, and MANY others who have stepped up and have been sending in quality material to make the magazine shine the way it does! It's because of you guys and your contributions that we're doing so well! So thank you for that!

And, of course, more people are always welcome to jump on board! Give me a shout at Comicality@webtv.net if you're interested in joining the ne Imagine family! We'd love to have ya!

Alright...that's it for now! I've got a week long celebration to publish for you all! Seezya soon!

December 2, 2018: Ooops...
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi everyone,

I was going to tiptoe off to bed and hope no one noticed that I found another mistake in posting past work on The Shack Mirror site. I might have been able to pull it off if it didn't affect True's Fandom and the Fort Family Community site though ;)

Anyway, Comicality posted a brand new chapter of "Unforgettable" and it is included with all the new postings of old work on the same story. So, if you have been following the story elsewhere, Chapter 22 is available now! If you have been following it on the Shack Mirror Site or True's Fandom... Chapters 8 through 22 are up and ready for a group of insomniacs to tackle. Enjoy...

November 27, 2018: *Left Without Words* Is Back! Enjoy! :)
Posted by Comicality

A brand new chapter has just been posted! So, if you're fans of Shane and Dimitry...then smile for me, K? And let me know what you think of the new chapter if you get a chance! I'd love to hear from you guys!

I've been answering a TON of emails lately, and I'm going to try to answer more tonight if I can swing it! :P So...if you sent me a note, expect an answer back soon! K? in the next few days if I can find enough time!

I appreciate every single word, and if you're going through hard times, I will do what I can to be there for you. People will tell you...that's kinda my 'thing'. But it takes time! So please bear with me for a while longer. I'm still recovering from the flu and the Thanksgiving holiday! I still want to help...but I've only got so many hours in the day to work with, just like everybody else. So...if YOU couldn't do it, yourself...don't expect me to have any secret way to do it either. K?

But I'm trying. I'm trying my /hardest/! That's as much as I can give, I hope that it's enough,

Enjoy the new chapter! And I hope to seezya soon!

Come by the Shack forum if you get a chance! I'm finally able to get back to being 'me' again! Hehehe! Movies, music, games, and just random silliness! Introduce yourself and join the party!

November 25, 2018: Gone From Daylight: Appearing For Black Friday!
Posted by Comicality

I hope you guys had a good holiday! :)

I most certainly did! Despite me being really nervous about having it at my house this year, and a last minute battle with the flu...everything went to plan! It was GREAT! Everybody had a blast, the food was delicious, it was awesome to see all of the family together at once...it was just perfect! I LOVED it!

Anyway, I didn't think I was going to have to work on Friday, but...I did. And I came home wanting nothing more than to sleep off some of the exhaustion leftover from Thursday! Hehehe, but that doesn't mean the show won't go on! A brand new chapter of "Gone From Daylight" went up for 'Black Friday'! So check it out when you get a chance and let me know what you think! K?

(Click here to go directly to the chapter!)

I am SO happy that you guys enjoyed the November release of Imagine Magazine this month! Yay! It feels good to know that you are enjoying the content and are submitting more material of your own to be included! (https://imagine-magazine.org/) The December issue is already underway, and then it's on to more monthly issues for 2019! So if any of you guys want to submit some work of your own and join the party...let me know at Comicality@webtv.net and I'll be sure to save you a spot somewhere! K? Hehehe, come have fun with us! We're building quite the army over here! :P

Also, thanks to all of you guys who grabbed some of my ebooks this month! Wow! Hehehe, there have been some surprises over the past few weeks in terms of sales, believe me! THANK YOU!!! And if you haven't gotten a copy of the newest "Savage Moon: Unleashed" ebook, be sure to nab one at your earliest convenience! Cool? New ebooks are coming soon! So expect a few to pop up before the end of the year! (https://imagine-magazine.org/store/comicality/)

Alrighty...I'll leave you to your reading and stuff now! Enjoy! I hope to seezya soon!

PS- Sorry about the lapse in emails. The holiday took a lot out of me this week. I'll get back to you guys as soon as I can! K? Hehehe, don't start feeling all self conscious on me. I HATE sleep...but I have to sleep, regardless. It's a part of my survival. LOL! But, I'd get around it if I could. I swear!

November 21, 2018: Apologies to the Community
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Everyone from the new Mirror site to "Comicality's Shack Out Back"!

As you can clearly see, the new site is up and running at full speed and now even communicates news and new chapters to our family's hub at http://fortfamilyforums.com which is awesome. I realize that some of you (actually a decent number of you) found the site early on. To those of you who have been getting your Comsie fix in a retro-looking site early, I hope you are enjoying the experience. Sure it doesn't look exactly like the Shack of many years ago but as a fan myself, I was just hoping to bring back a little of the familiar aspects of the old site's character within our custom built story management system (SMS) designed by our own Akeentia. We would love to get some feedback from you all about what you think of this project. I had lots of fun mixing the old and new to create this mirror site and I hope you have as much fun exploring and reading some of the best literature on the web on it.

As for the apology, it appears as though I connected it to the community a day too soon as I have found a hand full of chapters that I missed. This means I will be adding them and yes, they will flood the community "New Chapters" feed a little.  Unfortunately, other projects knocked me off track a little with this site so I lost my place and will do my best to get it corrected today. Then we will be doing our best to keep the Fort Family posted when new work is made available. Remember, If you prefer reading on the Gay Authors forum, this can also serve as a reminder that you need to get over there to do some reading. Cool?

Ok, enough slacking... I gots work to do :)

*HUGZ* Have Fun!

November 19, 2018: Getting things back in order before Thanksgiving!
Posted by Comicality

Let me start off by thanking you guys for being so patient and understanding with me for the past week or two while I was struggling through a particularly nasty flu virus! UGH! I don't get sick very often, but when I do...I am the biggest baby! LOL! It's true. Any virus strong enough to take me down ends up being enough to have me bedridden and utterly miserable for DAYS!

So, if I seemed a bit 'absent' lately, that's just me trying to get myself back in order before the Thanksgiving holiday! it's actually at my house this year, and this is my first big family Thanksgiving. Well, I mean, at my place, that is. My mom and I usually had to drive for hours and hours to come visit family at someone else's house. But this time, it'll be here. And everything has to be spotless! And I've got things all cleaned up and ready for company. We've got a big family, so it should be fun!

Wish me luck!

That aside, I haven't been slacking too much on my 'Comsie-Work'. Promise!

Last week, I did post a massive, double sized, chapter of "Billy Chase"! And big THANKS to all of you guys who commented on it and sent love and support for the new addition! So be sure to go and check it out if you haven't seen it yet! K? You won't want to miss it!

Click here to go to the Forum!

Also, THANK YOU for the feedback on the newest chapter of "Savage Moon", and for the huge surge in purchases at the Comicality ebook section! You guys are incredible! I'm so grateful! Thanks! I hope to make you proud in the weeks to come! And thanks for the new subscribers to the Youtube account as well! We are creeping towards 600 subs now! So be sure to share it with your friends! I'm kinda anxious to see how many folks will join in now! Keep 'em coming!

Also, I am posting a new 'Daydream Short' story on the Library in a few minutes! It's called "Naughty Click", and it is the short story for the November issue of Imagine Magazine! Now, I know that we usually post on the 15th of every month, but the delay is 100% MY fault this month! K? I've been trying to get stuff in order and I screwed it all up by trying to do a million things at once. So, you guys can blame me on that one. BUT...I didn't expect the newest issue of Imagine Magazine to be up and ready quite so fast! But, as always, I'm in league with miracle workers who accomplish things MUCH faster than I can! So thanks to them for being Shack patriots on this one! MWAH!!!

The newest issue of Imagine is now live and online for your enjoyment! Just click here to check it out. New additions from VampireMystic, Lindon Westzer, Jeffsfort, and our featured author for the month of November, Jules Porter! So check it out, and let these authors know what you think when you get the chance! Cool?

That's it for right now! I'm playing catch up in a major way tonight, and there will be more coming your way this week! Cool?

Laters! And thanks again for tossing rotten eggs at me for being sick. Hehehe, trust me...I'd MUCH rather be talking to you guys instead.

Take care!

Posted by Comicality

...what day is it? Hehehe!

Almost Tuesday! Ok! Lost my bearings for a moment there! :P

I wanted to say hello and send some good vibes your way tonight! Thanks for being so patient with me while everything was getting that special Comsie polish that you've come to know and love from any of the new releases that come your way. I always make sure that I can give you the best that I've got, and nothing less. But it DOES take time, and I'm thankful to have you guys wait it out with me. You're the best!

SO...the newest issue of Imagine Magazine was released early this morning, and it is MASSIVE! This is the biggest magazine offering that we've had yet, and the issues to follow this one already have new talented authors lining up for 2019! I can't tell you how amazed and how HAPPY I am to see this project be such a success! Thanks to all of you guys who have been sending in submissions, sending in feedback and compliments, and all those who have been working behind the scenes to put it all together! This month was an exhaustive effort, to say the least! But it was SO worth it!

I can honestly say that this is one of the issues that I'm MOST proud of! It's everything I ever dreamed the online magazine would be and more! So don't miss out on the elaborate buffet that we've put out there for you guys to nibble on! Hehehe!

Big thanks to MrM, who was an absolute PATRIOT, with new material for this October issue! Also, chapter two of "Lincoln, The Family I Never Expected" from our newest author, Lindon Weztser! Check those out! Our featured author of the month is Owen Wendel! And he's written his own GFD vampire spinoff series, that will continue in future issues as well! So check out his story "GFD: Life Goes On", as well as my one on one interview with him about his writing and his plans for future chapters! 

All of these...plus this month's Daydream Short story, "Come Over", my favorite horror short films from 2017/2018, the usual 'feel good' Imagine articles, and much more! The magazine is in full swing now, and it's only going to get better from here on out! So if any of you guys want to jump in and be a part of this rapidly growing empire...drop me an email at Comicality@webtv.net so we can set you up with a spot! K? I'd be happy to see what you've got! We want to expose the world to as much new talent as possible! So if you're looking to add to your fanbase and get a spotlight on your story...say the word. And I'll see what I can do! K?

(As with every issue...there's a period of adjustment behind the scenes. So there may be a few glitches here and there over the next few days. But the experts at Imagine are working on them as you read this! So if anything seems a little bit off...just check back in a day or two, and I'm sure it'll be fixed by then. K?)

Also, HUGE thanks for the newest subscriptions to the ComicalityShack YouTube account!!! Yikes! We're getting thre or four new subscribers a WEEK now! Already at 552 subscribers! LOL...look out 'Pewdiepie'! I'm coming for ya! (Psh...shut down)

Anyway, check out the new Halloween issue of Imagine Magazine when you get a chance! Imagine-Magazine You won't be disappointed!

The revolution is here, ladies and gentlemen! And life is grand!

Gotta run! And I'll seezya soon!

Oh yeah...I'm having a scheduled public chat some time soon! I'd love to talk to you guys in real time more often! I just need to get my work
schedule and find a time where I can chat with you guys here in the States as well as overseas simultaneously. Which is a lot harder to figure out than you guys may think. But EVERYBODY is welcome to join! So keep an eye on your email to get the date and time! Let's get together and have some fun! :P

More emails are coming as well! I just need to get my head screwed on straight!

September 30, 2018: Notice to our Faithful Readers
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to send out a quick notice to let you all know that as a part of our attempt to keep our hosted sites on fast, reliable, and up to date servers, we will be migrating our sites to brand new equipment with up to date software, including an upgraded operating system. We anticipate no operational downtime for our visitors but where we are physically moving, there may be a very short time where DNS servers may be pointing to the old server even after the new servers are brought online. 

If you were planning to do a marathon reading session, go right ahead as the only change that may be noticeable would be sites responding slightly faster than usual. By Thursday if you hear nothing from us then it will be back to business as usual for us behind the scenes and you will see progress return to normal. 

We will advise if this schedule changes as the request to greenlight the move is being placed tonight.

Here's to as many reliable years on newer equipment.

September 17, 2018: Happy Sunday, folks!
Posted by Comicality

I'm not going to drag this out for too long, as I'm having a few problems with power outages on my end. Small ones, nothing major. And my laptop battery keeps working, but my router and internet connection vanishes on me, which means lost work and wasted time. Luckily, we only got lightly 'brushed' by the effects of Hurricane Florence, but it still makes for a messy weekend. Best of wishes to our Shackers in Florida and the Carolinas who had a much more severe experience with the storm. Be safe!

Yesterday was September 15th! And, as you know, the 15th of every month brings you a brand new issue of the Shack's online magazine, 'Imagine'! I certainly hope you guys enjoyed the new additions, articles, and stories, for the month of September! (We're getting better at this! Hehehe!) So jump in whenever you like, and feel free to let me know what you think at Comicality@webtv.net when you get an opportunity! All of the usual suspects are included in this issue, including a fabulous new series by this month's featured author, Lindon Weztser called, "Lincoln, The Family I Never Expected"! Followed by an interview that goes in depth into the story's theme and creation, and what you guys can look forward to next! Welcome to the Imagine family, Lindon!

Also, brand new chapters of "The Seashell", "Predators: 9-14-9x", and "Brandon Smiling"! (I made a mistake with the 'Brandon' chapter, but I will get that fixed up as soon as possible! But if you haven't read the series yet, use this time to catch up! Hehehe, it'll be worth it!) Coming up next will be our special 'Halloween Issue', which I'm really excited about! Some people go crazy for Valentine's Day, others for Christmas...but me? I'm a Halloween junkie! All the way! So turn the lights out on October 15th, and look for more Imagine craziness to come!
