(Un)covered is a story I wrote mostly under the auspices of my continued fascination with genderfuck and wanting an excuse to window shop online for Toni’s wardrobe. It turned into a harrowing experience, and one which informed future attempts at writing born-a-girl, because it turns out that to write my own gender is to expose myself and my personal experiences whether I want to or not, without the veneer of pretend distance. I had to make my peace with it, because I realized if I tried to edit that out, that’s where the waxy unrealism of some stories about women came from. If I suffered any vanity, it had to go, or else the story read strange. I’m glad it did it, but I do still glance at that story and want to go hide in the bathroom. It’s a reaction I actually have with most of my genderfuck stories – they’re all extremely exposing.

East Coast Gazette has a terrible editorial focus and tends to use a lot of ALL CAPS but TOTALLY NOT BECAUSE OF HARRY POTTER. Stories in progress as well as snapshots will be listed in the "box full of snapshots" below, website archive for stories and assorted tomfoolery is glitterati.
