These are some of the twisted tales that I wrote during my time in
London Central Secondary School (note that here in Ontario high school goes to
Grade 13, though they're phasing it out now) and into my first year undergrad
at the University of Western Ontario. They started as a strange competition
between myself and two friends in Grade 9 English as to who could write the
sickest stories for the creative writing part of the class. It soon became
clear that I had the more demented imagination. Why I continuted in this vein
for the next six years I'll never know, and I'm sure the long-suffering English
teachers at the school won't either. Come to think of it, I don't know why I
wasn't called in for a psychological evaluation either, as I'm sure these
things could indicate a severely disturbed kid. However, I was a good student,
did very well in all my classes and, as far as I know, was generally well-liked
by the students in a large number of the various cliques, probably because I
was square as a brick and made no bones about it. (The corners have rounded a
bit since then, but I'm still fundamentally square...)
So here they are for the world to read, each with a small introduction to
place it in context. In what will probably prove to be a futile attempt to
dodge copyright infringement, I have changed Smurf to Snuff and Sesame Street
to Poppy Street. For some reason I really had it in for those shows. I hope
that you enjoy them!

all their own.

to the Snuffs as we never see them on TV.

immediate sequel to The Snuffs, in which everyone gets
embroiled in a huge war, and introduces Roland McDownal and the
- Hallowe'en on Poppy Street, in
which we discover what we don't want to have happen during Hallowe'en.

Romeo and Juliet was never like this...

to my other tales, but an attempt to save a role playing game
character from an unfortunate end.

last (and perhaps greatest?) of the lot, winding everything up,
at least for now.

I'm interested in your opinions! Trust me, I'm really a normal
guy now. Honest.
The More Normal Tales of Harold Reynolds
After many long years of not writing, I may have started up again...

some silliness put together for the sole purpose of putting a lot of Christmas puns
into a semi-lucid narrative. December 19, 2019.
- Moose Marston and Me, the result of
my wondering how the fictional me would have encountered the equally fictional
Moose Marston. July 31, 2020.
- A Visit from Santa, my contribution
to the company's virtual Christmas party of 2020.
The Erotic Novel of Harold Reynolds
I started writing what would eventually be called Ridiculust
on June 22, 2018 as a
love story featuring a lonely widow and widower, but with the addition that the man
likes puns. Then he discovers that saying a pun will cause something magical to happen,
with the event related to the content of the pun. The end of "Day 1" is the end of that
story, but I kept thinking "what happens next?" So I continued writing. I don't want to
have any spoilers, but after the relatively slow start in Day 1, the other chapters
introduce new characters and more interesting events as the strength of the magic
increases and the man is not the only one who can use it.
There are plenty of "adult" activities, albeit not equally distributed amongst the
chapters of what turned out to be a novel of more than 113,000 words. There is also a
lot of humour, as I find ways to exploit strange things. Not to mention plenty of puns.
We need more humour, especially now. And with all of the tens of thousands of stories on
Literotica, I'm pretty sure that Ridiculust is unique.
Linking to the story, which is hosted on Literotica,
is a significant exception to the focus of my site, which is intended to be family-friendly.
I started publishing it one chapter at a time at the beginning of October, 2020. The first
chapter starts a bit slowly (little "adult activity"), but it lays the foundation for what
is to come, so please don't stop with it! I hope that you enjoy it!
And the usual disclaimer: if you are not of the age at which you can legally access
erotic stories in your jurisdiction, please wait until you are! I can't stop you, of course,
but I have to put in the warning...

The Other Erotic Stories
As it turns out, I didn't burn out my creativity with Ridiculust. Some ideas had been percolating
in my brain for a while, and over the span of a couple of weeks, I wrote the first of what will
likely turn into a new series. They will be more stand-alone than the chapters of Ridiculust,
since they were part of a larger story.
