  2. ah si seulement ça avait pu être ça, la vie aurait été bien meilleure pour nous les femmes, ces messieurs en jupon auraient certainement moins supérieurs et nous les femmes beaucoup plus compréhensives envers eux, j'adore la robe,

  3. Jamie, it is always nice to see your postings but you have done a lot of this sort of thing: formally-posed compositions and a historical setting. Your best ones are the modern ones which seem to provide a snapshot which evoke a narrative of what has gone before and what will come after - the Secretary one was brilliant for this reason. They set off a train of thought - which the formally-posed ones do not really do. But perhaps this is just me, Sorry to be negative. No need to publish this if you don't want.

    1. You're expressing your view and you're welcome.

      I just noticed that nobody seems to paint pictures like this one - a cross-dressed Victorian couple. Even I haven't done it: I've manipulated old paintings but the only originals I've done are a couple of faux fashion plates. So it's kind of scratching an itch. I like to think the historical ones also set off a train of thought, albeit a slightly different one.

      Fear not, I haven't abandoned the modern day!

  4. I shall so much like seeing a scéne which represents, a professional inversion, for example, a man in restaurant waiter, or a man making a work while madam lily his(her,its) newspaper, or a man in hostess with captain thank you again Jamie to make us dream

  5. We all have our list of what we want... Jamie will make what Jamie wants and that's that. In my opinion, Jamie's writing skills are way beyond almost all other writers, but unfortunately Jemie's opinion is that the internet is full of fiction already (wished it was true, at least quality... but there isn't any good quality out there in big quantities... anyway, Jamie thinks there is).
    So let's stop whining about what we all want and just say thank you.

    I just remember that story where the boys were threatened by the girls on campus to wear skirts and ended up complying... wow... so... classy!

    But if we can just ask... nah, just kidding.

    1. Thanks for this.

      It's not that I think there's heaps of great fiction out there, exactly - most of it is dire - rather that I don't want to write the same story fifty times just with different names. When I have both a compelling idea and the time to actually write it (always my curse), I will happily return to fiction!

  8. Only just discovered your stuff Jamie. Fantastic; skilful artwork -- I especially like the fact that the men are men (muscular, taller, bigger feet), and not somehow ambiguous. Story lines that hold together and don't involved a lot of f-words / bondage / explicit sex. And you're a Brit too, just down the road.

    Very well done. I wonder if you will one day do a family group? Woman and husband, teenage daughter and son.
