Adam and Brynmor have been hospitalized, and they are now recovering.

True Fan had an operation this morning to resolve the clotting problem in one of his legs, he got through the surgery and is recovering. Unfortunately, they had to remove part of his left leg. He is in good spirits, however, please keep sending him positive energy.

If there are any readers and other authors needing positive thoughts and energy please let me know.

June 14, 2019: Peek a boo!!
Posted by Garret D. M.

Hello everyone!!!!

It's your long lost brother, nephew, or son back from BCT at Fort Jackson South Carolina now a full fledged Soldier!!! While away I found time to write not only chapter 4 but also 5, 6, and part of chapter 7 as well!! All you have to wait for now is for me to find time to type it out and send it all out to you guys to enjoy more Mike and Leo!!

I love you all so much and I'm so happy that you stuck by me during this journey I took! I have changed not only physically but also emotionally as well so that means much more deeper writing and even deeper poems!! I can't wait for you all to read what I have to share to you all. I hope you all love it!

Well its late... or should I say early for me right now so I should get some sleep now.

"To feel love is to feel pain, its going to be a world of hurt."

May 28, 2019: 12th Annual - Random Cake Holiday!!!
Posted by JeffsFort

There are some traditions that were started as a laugh that we refuse to let die. This is one started by our favorite role model and yes, The Fort Family celebrates it to this day...

*Random Cake Holiday* Emailed By Comicality!

That's right! I said 'Random Cake Holiday'! Hehehe! Don't ask any questions, don't worry about the rhyme or reason WHY you should do it...just DO IT! We had a conversation in the chat tonight, and this lack of cake is just unforgivable. So today, I want each and every single person reading this, to go out somewhere and find yourself a piece of cake to eat! I don't care HOW you get it, or WHAT kind of cake it is! But there are just way too many people who have gone TOO long without having a piece of cake!

You can laugh all you want! Feel silly doing it! I don't care! Whatever! Just go out, find some cake, and enjoy it for the simple fact that you CAN! And I'm not talking about some moldy old store bought sliver of cake that you can buy for a quarter at the counter of your local gas station! I mean actual *CAKE*! Go to a bakery, go to a neighbor's house, hit up the old lady that does volunteer work at the resource center in your area, bake your own and give half of it away to someone else who doesn't have cake, play your Cake cd on your car radio..whatever...but don't you DARE let the sun set without getting a taste of that sweet sweet cake goodness! C'mon...don't you want some CAKE??? I do!

The only time we get to have cake is at weddings, birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, and bachelor parties. And that's just wrong! So if you needed a reason to eat cake, then here it is. It's cake day. GO! Get some! Enjoy it! Do it for the simple fact that you have absolutely NO reason to do it other than I told you so! Hehehe! Savor it!

That's right....I'm going to get mine as soon as I get up tomorrow! Believe me! Mmmm cake...

Spread the word!


May 27, 2019: US Memorial Day
Posted by The Story Lover

Dear Readers,

I was going to post an announcement regarding Memorial Day in the US, however, ACFan posted an announcement on his site that captured my thoughts exactly so here they are:

Posted by AC

Today, the US is observing Memorial Day. While this is not observed worldwide, I ask all of you to take the time today to thank the people that you know who have served in your nation's military services. Without them, the stories that you read here would not be possible, as the soldiers and sailors of the world sacrifice their time, and sometimes their lives, to give you the rights and freedoms that you enjoy every day.

To all of my brothers and sisters of the world who are now serving, have served, or have given their lives in service to their country, I salute you.


US Navy - 1985-1987

I do want to personally thank all of the Military Personnel for their sacrifices and service, and echo ACFan's words, your service has made this site and its stories possible. Thank You Very Much!
