1. Comfortably Numb (complete)


Comfortably Numb is Part 1 of the Comfortably Numb trilogy.  It is an all-human story set mostly in New York City.  It follows the love story of Eric & Sookie, two individuals incredibly beaten down and emotionally stilted due to the cruelty of their parents.  Can they learn to love themselves and each other, even as outside forces try to rip them apart?

Will their love survive, or will they be faced with a life in which they succumb–once more–to numbness?

Touch the Flame, the first sequel to this story is completed.

black dividerDisclaimer:  All publicly recognized characters, images, lines of dialogue, song titles, and plot lines are the sole property of their creators.  I own only my own ideas and the characters I create; however, even those constructions would be impossible without the characters in True Blood and the Southern Vampire Mystery series.  My work is not-for-profit and only for the enjoyment of the writer and readers.  No copyright infringement is intended.

black dividerAcknowledgments & Dedication:  I want to publicly thank two people who have been instrumental to this work.

First, I have to acknowledge the support of a wonderful sounding board, Scorp (CBD33).  She was the first to see the first draft of the first chapter, and her excitement and questions made me more excited.  As always, she is both a push and a support-system to my work.  And–despite distance and the fact that we only know each other via the Internet–she is a dear friend and confidant.  This story is dedicated to you, Scorp, and to everyone who is fighting to overcome the pain (sometimes inadvertent) caused by parents.

Second, I have to recognize and thank Sephrenia, banner maker, extraordinaire!  Seph was the second person to read the draft of chapter one, and from there, she volunteered to make the story’s banner, which you can see below!  She has also made some wonderful character banners for the story, which I will be including as the characters are introduced in the story.  She has the uncanny ability to get into my head and capture the mood I am trying to create, and she does this with very little information too!  Click here to visit her WordPress site!

Comfortably Numb final

black dividerInspiration:  This story was inspired–in part–by the haunting song, “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd.
