About CenterLine

Hey there Lush. I'm a trans girl in her mid twenties who is here mostly for writing, reading, and if I'm in the mood, some occasional conversation and debate. I'm glad I've shared some of my stories with you and there are more to come. I am open to the criticism of others, and to my shortcomings as a writer. If you linked to my profile from the forums, there are some clarifications about what the hell's going on with my gender identity buried in this mess of an introduction.

My fiction on Lush tends to varies in style, but one of my biggest complaints about the erotic fiction community is that there is very little in the way of specifically pansexual porn or erotica, and so I try to write from that standpoint. I sometimes lean to the pornographic side of things, even though that is what I tend to shy away from in reading (though not always). I think the reason is that I try to write these intense erotic tales with a great premise and story, and then I think "...what if this wasn't porn at all?" and wind up turning it into an often sexually intense, but non-erotica fiction project. I've often been tempted to post some of them here in Novels, but I always decide to keep them for something that may in the end be more useful to my career.

Once I have the two series a little more up and running then I think that will provide a good dichotomy, though Candlelight and Belts is on hold for the moment. I like to think that my erotic fiction is driven primarily by circumstance and descriptive detail. I'm experimenting now with fetish driven characters, and finding that it adds a dimension to my stories that had not been present before (these are unpublished, as yet).

I have a girlfriend with whom I am completely and madly in love. This means I will not cyber with you. I don't get a lot out it anyway, but I'd like to put that thought to rest right now, and my having a partner does help nail that coffin shut. If you want to chat, that's absolutely fine as long as you speak in complete sentences and can demonstrate a clear grasp of the English language (unfortunately I'm not fluent in any others). Occasionally I have somewhat of a way about me, and if I appear to be flirting with you, I might be, but that's pretty much the extent of my serious interest in people who aren't my girlfriend at the moment. I'm here to meet other writers, readers, and enthusiasts for erotic fiction and any other interests we share.

I should place an amendment to my original statement to help avoid confusion amongst those who linked to my profile from the forums. I will talk a little more about what it is to be non-op trans than other aspects, but since I'm bio-male, I checked male at the creation stage of this profile. I tend to identify as female about 70% of the time. It's a bit of an abstract flux with me, and occurs in reality amongst those who are close to me. I guess what I'm suggesting is that you should try not to get weirded out by my posting from the perspective of either/both gender identifications, or even sexual identifications. Thanks for those of you who understand, and my understanding to those of you who find it hard to wrap your minds around. It is.

Sadly, another addition has become necessary. I hate to have a disclaimer like this, but I apparently I must. I do not accept friend requests that are blank. You don't necessarily have to have a long standing relationship on Lush with me - though it doesn't hurt to have commented on the same threads I have, or read my stories or bio - but you do have to introduce yourself. I'm not after a long list of friends, but I'll totally add you if you seem interesting to me and you find me the same. I won't add you if you send a blank FR. If you don't have a lot of info on your profile, your introduction needs to have a little something about you. There's a lot about me for you to read, and so it's important to me that I get to know you a little also. That said, I welcome anybody who finds me interesting - I probably find you interesting.

Of course, neither my current avatar nor any of my previous avatars are images of or taken by me. She is however, a great example of how I wish I might look, in a perfect world - and yeah, if I did, I'd probably dress like that from time to time. It's not that I can't be a pretty girl, I just don't look like that. I've slowly been changing my avatar from the abstract to a more visually concrete place, and as an experiment, been tracking the effect on my profile's view count. I may eventually post the data somewhere. As you might expect, the more sexually appealing the image I select is, my views per day increase, regardless of the obvious fact that it's almost certain it is not an image of the person whose profile it is. I'm burying this part in the middle, so that it hopefully won't disturb the results too much; but I think the image deserves a little explanation.

I suspect one of the most important things about me in terms of my existence on lush for anyone to know is that I am not actually bisexual, I'm pansexual, and MTF-non-op transsexual. I also identify as a polyamorous individual, but at this time, I'm in a sexually monogamous relationship that I anticipate lasting forever. I'm a non-operative trans-sexual because I am unconvinced of the effectiveness and viability of any currently available sexual reassignment operations. Lots of other reasons too, and you're welcome to ask if you want to know more about that. I'm as open as it gets about being pan, trans or poly, so feel free to ask about it, particularly if you'd like to hear about what it's like to be a trans girl from what is (as far as I can tell) a unique perspective, or if you have any other questions.

I'm always happy to talk about pansexuality, transsexuality, and polyamory from a fairly academic standpoint. As you might imagine, since I have such a complex orientation and identification, combined with the fact that I'm in a long-term, monogamous relationship that seems to the casual observer as heterosexual, I'm still exploring a lot about myself sexually and personally, and Lush seems like a good place to do explore some of those things.

I've always really enjoyed erotic fiction, and I've written quite a bit of it, but until recently I've not been that comfortable sharing it with the world. It feels nice, now that I finally have. Ironically, I don't write a lot of trans or gay fiction, but a lot of bi and pan themes come out in what usually seems like hetero fiction until you get a couple of chapters in.

Really I'm more of a non-erotic writer, having written several plays (few of which have ever been produced), a screenplay (not produced) a number of short stories/novellas and have a couple of novels in progress.
Favorite Books:
In no order of preference. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte; The River Why - David James Duncan; The Poisonwood Bible - Barbara Kingsolver; American Gods - Neil Gaiman; Sense and Sensibilty, Emma - Jane Austen; Harry Potters 3,4,6 and 7 - J.K. Rowling; and of course a wide variety of others.
Favorite Authors:
Aaron Sorkin is easily my favorite writer of any kind, ever. Don't know what it says about me that my favorite writer is primarily a screen writer and stage writer, but whatever... beyond that there is no order, as usual. Charles Dickens, Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen, David James Duncan, Neil Gaiman, Jane Espenson, Joss Whedon (not as big a fan of him as others are, but he's fine), Oscar Wilde, William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe and many others.
Favorite Movies:
Almost Famous, The American President, It's Complicated, Charlie Wilson's War, Stardust, Pleasantville, Good Will Hunting a couple of the Harry Potter movies... many, many more.
Favourite TV Shows:
Sorkin, Whedon, Espenson, Echevaria, Roddenberry
Favorite Music:
A brief list might include in no order of any kind, Tom Petty, Warren Zevon Lene Marlin, Bob Dylan, Matt Nathanson, Garbage, Regina Spektor, Lucinda Williams, Leonard Cohen, etc.

I didn't mean it wasn't good, and of course it carries weight. I just don't know that it should. I'm in one of those moods today, though, so don't mind me.

Topic: Would you meet someone from Lush in person?
Posted: 26 Sep 2013 12:36

Depends on who it was, I suppose. Also, how my partner felt about it. I've yet to meet anybody remotely near enough for it to be something to think about, and even if I did, I doubt seriously that we would be interested in such a meeting. On here, I'm a fun, bubbly girl and I try to be an elegant, well spoken gentleman. In reality, I'm a grouchy, awkward curmudgeon who floats aimlessly between masculinity and womanhood and it's a wonder I've found even one person who loves me the way I am.

First, I don't think all of them are.

Second, many of the people on here who are asking such questions are much younger than many of us and asking out of a curiosity derived from their lack of experience and minimal array of partners.

Third, why does it matter? It's not like you were going to be fucking many of those types anyway, so why not let them ask their silly questions and be answered with only a modicum of sarcasm?

As per usual, hugs to all. Sorry I seem grouchy. Just posted on a topic about gay marriage, and you all know how fired up that can get us.

Good for him. Please note however, that it says specifically in the article that he and his wife attended as "private citizens" which is Washington for "THIS IS NOT A PUBLIC STATEMENT!" Now, I still think it's fantastic, but as an extremely queer individual, I'm not sure that it's as big of a deal as many people seem to be making it into. For the record, I'm pan, trans, and poly, but I feel that one man's opinion (no how influential he is or once was) is not as important as it could be. Even (relatively liberal) President Obama isn't willing to give it the support it needs to get any traction in the U.S. House of Representatives, even if it made it in the Senate. That said, as a (sort of, but legally) male who has dated men and been serious about a couple of them, I support the idea of gay marriage, but not in the way you might think.

I understand that marriage in this country is a spectacular legal and financial bonus (in terms of survivor benefits, taxes and medical access to name a few) to those who choose to participate in the system, but that comes from the same set of logic that allows you to plead 'no contest' to a charge you can't refute, but take a harsher penalty for not voluntarily admitting your guilt, (By the way, if somebody wants to tell me how that's not a fifth amendment violation, that would be great). It's not that I think that married couples should be discriminated against, but I staunchly believe that people who choose to commit to each other, but not engage in a religiously or legally sanctioned marriage shouldn't be either.

It's also obvious to me that if the government can't make something available to everybody, I'd like to see it out of the business altogether, at least until they can. Also, it's worth noting, that under much of the current legislation floating around congress, not even identified bisexual men or women would be eligible to marry same sex partners (since they 'have the option to choose an opposite sex partner') and under none of it would transsexual, transgender, asexual, polyamorous, or otherwise queer individuals be granted any sort of rights. Furthermore, any of those potential laws while granting the right of legally sanctioned marriage to gay and lesbian partners, might specifically and savagely curtail those rights for others.

Like I wrote though, good for you, Mr. Bush.

I do!

I'll admit I have a somewhat skewed sample, but most people I know, do actually. Men and women. It's not a weird thing. It's understandable to not enjoy it, but I honestly think more people do enjoy it than don't.

Candlelight and Belts - Part I - Dominant Storyteller

She takes me in her hand as she begins to tell the story. I was eighteen. Early in my sexual life- but not that early. She says. I smile as I listen to her. Changing the shape of my mouth actually seemed to help the work I was doing and she let out a little moan. I had an apartment off campus with a couple of friends. I'd had the same boyfriend in high school for such a long time, and...

Candlelight and Belts - Preamble

Sunset. It's not late yet. After dinner. After drinks. Our guests are tired, we are not. They're asleep in the next room. She finally stops singing and puts down her guitar. It always makes me want to take her and throw her to the bed when she plays. Sometimes the urge overwhelms me. She knows it, and so my wrists are lashed to the bedposts. “I want to get some work done.” she'd said. ...
