With that project behind me, I'm moving my base of operations to MY NEW SITE, VinnieTesla.com. I intend to keep this page up, because ASSTR continues to rock my world, and I want to support them (and you should too), but updates will probably only happen there from now on.
Saturday (1000 words) is a short fantasy love letter
with no plot and no real dialogue. Contains BDSM elements, lots of
oral, and the dreaded second-person narration.
Residues (800 words) is a collection of seven oblique
short-shorts with a common theme.
This is Not a
Story About Andrew (5000 words) is the
story of a sudden reciprocated crush, and what is done about
it. It was a November 2001 Silver Clitorides finalist. The story
features anal play, a little spanking, and fewer annoying
digressions than previous drafts.
A Sex Story (500 words) contains
purple prose, convenience-store coffee, and no sex at all.
Four Condoms (2800
words) Vinnie and Nadia had a different weekend from the one they
had planned. Now they have an hour to get rid of the evidence
before their housemate gets home. Contains oral and anal sex,
rimming, and allegedly funny repartee.
Victim/Victorian was a 2002 Golden Clitorides finalist
for Best Series. It features light BDSM, a bit of genderb(l)ending, and
imitation nineteenth-century vocabulary. It is a complete novella in eight chapters.
Part 1: City Manners
(2400 words): Young Corky Brandywine comes to Mrs. Eleanor
Dalrymple's boarding house, and finds her shockingly
forward. A January 2002 Silver Clitorides finalist.
Part 2: Art for Art's Sake
(4000 words) Corky attampts to make a portrait of Mrs. Dalrymple's daughter, Maggie. They get a little carried away.
Part 3: Just Desserts
(3400 words): Caught in flagrante delecto, Maggie is punished. Then she's punished some more.
Part 4: Just So (3400
licking, reading, painting, and Kipling.
Part 5: Plots and Plans
(2700 words) concerns Corky's attempt to escape, which is
thwarted by Beatrice, then thwarted some more by Maggie. They
also thwart each other for good measure.
Part 6: Overheard and Overlooked
(3700 words) describes a conversation between Beatrice and
Maggie to which Corky is secretly privy. It contains sex,
bondage, and light pain between the sisters, and a Surprise.
Part 7: Persuasions (4400 words) shows Maggie's use of her rhetorical skills to persuade Corky of his feelings for Beatrice. Corky then proceeds to act on said feelings, at length and in detail.
Part 8: Otherwise Engaged (3100 words) concludes our narrative with some changes of perspective, some experessions of warm feelings, and the usual incestuous debauchery.
Tesla Vs. the Nantahack Yacht Club started as an attempt to
write something silly, over-the-top and unabashedly porn-y. What I
ended up with is rather confusing and dialogue-heavy for those
goals, but I still think it's pretty fun. It includes bondage,
oral sex, and a teen orgy (sort of).
Urgent (1500 words) is an epistolary piece I threw together to answer the question "is there any legitimate reason to tell a story in the future tense?" Many readers may conclude that the answer is no. Contains bondage, F/F sex, second-person narration, and chatty digressions.
I'm defining the term pretty loosely here. These have all been asked
at least twice.
Q: Is Vinnie Tesla your real name?
Q: Will Victim/Victorian be continued/finished?
Q: Well then, what's taking you so long?
A: I suck. I was hoping to finish the story within one year of it
being started (January 6, 2002), but that deadline whizzed by when I
wasn't looking. I'm currently (late January 2003) hoping to have parts
6 and 7 out before spring.
Q: What about Yacht Club?
A: That feels like less of a priority to me because a) it doesn't have
any overall plot arc (in my current plans), so I don't think it'll
ever be finished, and b) it's been less popular with
readers. All that said, yes, I expect to do some more chapters. Part 3
is about half written already.
Q: Can I put one (or more) of your stories on my website?
A: Depends on what you mean. More Vinnie and Molly stories, probably
not. More Vinnie Tesla stories, almost certainly—Four Condoms and the
forthcoming Rivals are set in the same continuity. I have a page of
notes for a story tentatively entitled Andrew Among Other Things that gives a little background for some
of the characters. One reader suggested that the party in NAA might
have other stories going on worth telling. It was a very cool idea,
but nothing specific has occurred to me yet.
