Hope, Need & Fear
I expect this story to be quite a number of chapters long. I have a lot to work through and a lot to express.
I don't intend this story to be a pulpit for me to preach my ideas of what is right or wrong, nor do I intend to write a fantasy story with unreal elements often seen in other gay love stories (such as somehow receiving incredible wealth and security or having the person you love feel the same way and immediately accept you). I honestly believe that the story in my mind is very worth telling and will be well received as simply a gay love story, but I also see writing the story as a sort of catharsis for many aspects of my life which cause me pain.
