New TC story: Spiral’s End

Jackie helped me write!Finally! A new story! Even my wrist won’t hold me down. Less than a week left in the cast!

I realized as I was writing this story that for all of the smut I manage to work into my (as yet unpublished) novels, this is the most “adult” thing I’ve posted here, leaving aside the fun, but silly “Hot and Heavy”. I feel weird putting a disclaimer on this, like, “Hey, doesn’t everyone know I have a sick and twisted mind?” Maybe not.
