Jean was born in the year 1700 as a member of the Great Lakes Cabol tribe. As a teen, she devised defenses for her Nation that included using the electricity gained from fields of potatoes to prevent amphibious assaults, and to create hydrogen for hot air balloon attacks. Eventually, the system was breached by Irenshoa Nation.

After defeating the Cabol, the Irenshoa turned their attention to forcibly removing European colonists from the Americas. Recognizing that Jean’s intellect could be an advantage, the Irenshoa military brought her along for a later invasion of the Italian city-state of Rome. Can Jean survive in this New World Realignment, while also preventing her gift for innovation from being exploited by the corrupt leaders of the Irenshoa Nation?

Just a girl, her board, the beach, and the in-line conversations I’ve had with my father.

This is a very short story I wrote for my father. This holds actual conversations I’ve had with him, and the influence he’s had on my life. I hope you enjoy this small blurb, that is my reality.

This historical fiction short story (2400 words total) is narrated by a former medical student that lost his license to practice following the events of the tale. I wouldn’t necessarily class it as lgbtq+ because it is far from a romance, but its main plot revolves around the laws against homosexuality in the 1700s. It is a real historical event, not a made-up sob story or anything of the like.

Title: The Disorderly Heart
In 1726, Mother Clap’s Coffeehouse, a notorious disorderly house, was raided by police and permanently shut down. A young and conservative professor discovers himself amongst the company of fellow disorderly hearts.

A disorderly house was a building in the 18th century that housed ongoings that could cause public offense. This would include gambling dens, brothels, and other such illegal underground facilities. In reference to my story, a molly house is a homosexual meeting place for men, and it also classifies as a disorderly house. Highly illegal.

In 1726, one of the most notorious molly houses in London, Mother Clap’s, was raided and shut down; and 40 to 50 homosexual men were arrested. Many were hung.
