Liquor Stash Chapter 12 teaser


I have been working on this chapter for what seems like ages, and with good reason. It’s going to be the longest chapter yet. And the smut, guys. the smut is going to be INTENSE. I’m not joking. This is not a drill. 

I just have to finish up this one scene, edit it and I’ll have it posted tomorrow.

As a thank you for your patience, I’m giving you a smutty spoiler, the same one I gave @aftgonice whose reaction was “JESUS, WARN A GIRL WILL YOU?” 

Consider yourself warned.

Yuri reached the sponge behind him, together with his other hand and held on to Otabek’s smoldering gaze. This whole thing was absurd. Here he was, fingering himself clean in front of a guy he had been too afraid to tell he liked up until four days ago. He was letting himself being told what to do, circling his own rim, readying himself, while this former friend turned crush of his just stood there like some lecherous voyeur. It was stupid. Stupid and dirty and an absolute fucking turn on. His cock was now rapidly hardening and he saw Otabek took notice. That hint of amusement in his eye was pissing Yuri off and making him harder by the second.

Otabek let his gaze travel from Yuri’s  cock to his flustered face, his deep, dark eyes filled with a carnal longing that trapped Yuri like a spell.

“Now jerk off for me,” Otabek commanded, “Slowly.”

Maya Stovall employs a mix of anthropological observation and urban intervention to create what she considers performance and ethnography. Stovall’s current research focuses on Detroit, where she grew up. The subjects in her video for the 2017 Biennial are her neighbors in the McDougall-Hunt area on the city’s east side. In Liquor Store Theatre, she dances on the sidewalks and streets outside neighborhood liquor stores, combining elements of ballet and contemporary movement. After each performance, she invites her audience—largely these establishments’ patrons and other passersby—to share their recollections of and predictions for Detroit, which she records on video. The artist focused on liquor stores in particular because they serve as hubs of both commerce and community, with individuals selling clothing, electronic goods, and other everyday items in their immediate vicinity. They are, in Stovall’s words, “a backstage view of ongoing life in a neighborhood, in spite of narratives of abandonment.”
