alright, friends, here is the deal: Mykell Hatcher-McLarin is incredibly talented and intelligent writer and all of our libraries would benefit immensely from his first collection of poems, The Chronicles of Navigating Disclosure. In Myke’s own words: "through these poems, I have made space for me. From 11th grade when I first realized I am transgender to the moments now where I reflect on my futures yet lived, I share with you a coming and continuum of being. In reading my short collection may you be inspired to make space to share your stories in however you may move throughout them."

In attending BTAC, he will be presenting a workshop on “The Art of Healing: Art Therapy and Healing from Trauma in Transgender Youth Communities.”

With your claws scraping off the shadow, the shadow that looms o’er my heart (Vodka update)

The next installment of the mini-scene fic That Mob AU found under that tag here or under chapter 139 of The Vodka Made Me Do It. Thanks for reading! Live long and prosper. 


The door slammed open, causing everyone in the room to jump. Myka, still covered in HG’s blood, focused on the girl tied to the chair.

“What do we know?” the enforcer growled out.

“Mykes,” Pete stepped forward, “are you sure you should…”

“WHAT do we know?” cold green eyes met his.

“She’s good,” Fargo’s voice broke the tension. “Lots of aliases, history as a hustler, in and out of jail, most recently upstate at Litchfield until about four months ago.”

“Then our little Lamb,” Claudia picked up where Fargo left off, “came to the big city where she began to work as a clerk for Reynolds’s Auto Parts.”

“Then what?” Myka looks at the pair of hackers.

“We’ve been trying to fill in those blanks,” Lima replied. “But she’s not saying much.”

Myka felt the weight of HG’s body against her as she was shoved to the ground. Then as she pulled the other woman towards her in an attempt to stop the bleeding.  Next to her as she rode along in the ambulance to St. Clair, barely clinging on to life.  She felt the blood dry and cake on her hands as the doctors wheeled the other woman deep into the emergency room.
