The image we create

To be honest, with most other story writers on the EMCSA, I dont ever try to create an image of what they look like, how old they are, or anything. Some of them, its very clear that they are in the first flush of youth, just old enough to write this stuff, maybe, or not much older. But every so often, there is an author that you just wonder what he’s like in real life, and tonight, I’m going to hypothesize on one of them, Maximilian Cummings. Yes, think of it, erotic stories, Max Cummings, groan…

The thing about Max that I probably love the most, is that his writing is so very British. I guess some of the readers from abroad dont get his story, just because of that reason, but as a Brit myself, I love it. I mean, when his stories feature tea drinking, at a British level, its a bit of a giveaway. I mean this weeks even mentions it in the title!

Oh fine, I have an advantage, I know he’s British, from the few times we’ve chatted, and we’ve mentioned places like Leeds station, and a few others as well… One of those matters that Max seems to have a fixation with, is nudity whenever possible, his stories are absolutely littered with it. Also, using euphemisms for certain parts of the human anatomy as well!

I imagine Max to be of a similar age to mine, in other words, he’s not in the first flush of youth! I might be totally wrong, but his writing style seems to throw back to a further age than modernity. Just reading this, or his previous story, suggests a writer who has known more than a little of life to me.

I have met, or talked to, a number of writers from the site in the past, and they are all perfectly normal people. Oh fine, or thats how they have left my mind to make me think they are perfectly normal people lol! One of those of course, is the man who helped me discover my past life self, and I can never show him enough gratitude for that. There are many that I’m probably grateful that I’ll never meet, to be fair.

But equally, there are a number that I will almost certainly never meet, but would love to do so, and yes, Maximilian Cummings is definitely one of those. I know, probably be a letdown, but he’s one of those it would be interesting to know, all the same. To save any complaints from either, both Penny Propofol, and Betsy Leohtar are definitely on this section of the list too!

OK, video time. I guess this is because I see him as an old fashioned gentleman, despite his proclivities, though seeing myself as a lady might be pushing credence! It says this is live, but I am 99.99% certain that it isnt!

A gentleman in my life

No, not in real life before anyone gets excited or shocked, just someone I regard as a very special friend at the MC Garden.

Unlike many of my previous personality postings here, I know very little about the man known as Legion at the Garden, so dont expect the sort of eulogy that James, Jo or Kate got from me, I dont know enough about him for that. So lets go with what I do know…

In real life, I know he lives somewhere in the Atlanta area, and according to his profile, he’s in his late twenties. I have to assume these are true, but thats about it.

What I do know about him is that he is an absolute gentleman, having been very kind to me, someone he equally barely knows on┬ámore than one occasion. And no, I’m not going to tell you what he’s done, other than to say I was exceedingly touched when he did. What he also does very well, and is far too modest about it, is write super short little stories, for those who offer him morsels of words at the Garden. These are layered towards personal tastes, so no one will be surprised to know that “several” of mine have either included robots, or a certain famous lady born in the state of Kansas, and of course, flappers in general.

What I do know is that he doesnt just flit out a few words, he looks into the subject matter. The last piece for me, based around Cherryvale, absolutely proved that. The thing is, he either doesnt realise how good a writer he is, or doesnt want to admit how good he is, I have no idea which. I (as have others) have tried to get him to post something, but no joy… I also know that if I was ever to get interested in a man again, someone like him(or the image he creates at least) would make a wonderful partner. But no, he’s half my age, and I’m asexual nowadays, so…

But I just felt it was about time to really show my appreciation to the man known as Legion in words, and this is it.

The song, well, he treats me as a lady at least, even if some who know me might laugh at that image, but thats why I’ve chosen this song, from a little while back (err, 40 years ago)
