Excellent introduction via short story into a new episode in the life of private investigator, Sharon McCone.  Desperately in need of new space for her agency,  asharon signs a lease for a 4 story building that holds a long dead skeleton.  She trade 3 months free rent in exchange for not breaking the lease if she can identify the skeleton and find out why it was there.  There's just enough to whet your curiosity to find out what will happen next in this building.

I'm Athiest and I don't give a damn if you're trans_>gender. All that matters is who you are on the inside to me. :D And I'm a girl. Ooooooooooooooh, no. One thing you're gonna have to face when you get the female 'parts' is that bloody, painful, red, explosion that happens every month, if you know what I'm talking about. Trust me, it HURTS. I almots hyperventilated once because of it at school. I fainted at the mall because of it. There are bad things about being a girl, AliCat. Very bad things. More than you think. So good luck.

I'm a Christian, but I think that people who downgrade and hate on transgenders and ga<_>ys are wrong. They are narrow-minded. Just because I believe one thing doesn't mean everyone else does, too. And, truth be told, I've looked at a few girls before. Love isn't something I accept readily, and I think I'm more bent towards guys, but one thing my best friend one said is true: No line is perfdctly straight. And in RP, I have no problem in RPing a guy although I'm a girl. Actually, I think RPing guys is what I'm better at. And I even RP a bi dude with no hatred. <p> ~ &#22767

So it looks like this blog thing is popular! Thanks! <p> Alright, it's inevitable. Gender is pretty well tied in with orientation, even if they don't necessarily affect each other. <p> At the beginning of this, I thought I would still like girls. I had a crush on a girl at the time, which is part of why. <br> About a year later, though, I started noticing that I also had a crush on a male classmate, a year older than me. We had been placed together for science, and then sometimes he sits next to me in math. It's terifying because I feel like he can hear my fast heartbeat, and he'll think it's weird because he sees a guy. He has really sincere-looking blue eyes, and a cute grin... and the way he wears that baseball cap... <br> At the same time, I realized that my crush girl was my best friend, and I might not actually be interested in her like that. And there was another girl, I was confused because I thought I was attracted to her, but it turned out I had a crush on her coat! Nowadays, I usually admire girls' fashion. <br> So I think I'm probably into guys, but I get confused often. Maybe I just like random people, because there are only a couple guys I've even considered likeable (in a dating way). And I'm still attracted to girls for their personalities. I guess I'm bi or pan. <p> Now, about dating. I don't think I'd go for anything very formal, aside from prom of course, but that's my final coming-out sort of thing. I'm into something more casual than dining, like maybe bowling or movies or something outdoors-y. Stargazing sounds fun. So does binge-watching all six star wars movies in a day. Or drawing random stuff on a big sheet of paper. <p> That's all I have to say. What are your thoughts? About gender and orientation, types of dates? Also, I'm open to suggestions about future topics, so please share your thoughts. ^AliCat^
