They/them, forty-something, southeastern U.S.

I've been writing since I was a child and posting stories on various free fiction websites since 2007. Since 2013, I've been selling ebooks; Smashwords pays its authors better than Amazon, and itch.io is hard to compare, but seems to be in the same ballpark as Amazon.

A story for Mermay, "Carpet-Bound," was posted to *False Positives and Other Stories* yesterday.

Huzzah!

BothellRoyal · May 6, 2024

Enjoyed it!

It's been pointed out to me that with the way chapter two of "The Forbidden Name" went up early, people who follow me or the story weren't notified when chapter one went up this past Tuesday. So here's your notice.clear.png

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Apr 27, 2024

Apologies for chapter two of "The Forbidden Name" going up early.  I must have made a mistake when scheduling it to appear in due course along with the other chapters.  I'm too tired to work on it tonight, but tomorrow (hopefully) I'll schedule the other chapters to appear -- probably on the next six Tuesdays rather than later in the year on Thursdays, as  I originally planned.  I don't think it's fair to make you wait until November to read the rest after teasing you with one chapter.

BothellRoyal · Apr 6, 2024

Could you add a link here to "Scouts" on the other sites? I don't use the other sites because they don't format well for phones. 

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Apr 27, 2024

I'll try to get those stories reposted to Scribblehub sometime soonish.  There are some more urgent things to work on, but maybe by next weekend I can have them scheduled?

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Apr 27, 2024

CW for the Travel Agency stories (what I can remember): kidnapping, torture and interrogation in "Scouts"; nudity, kidnapping and threat of arranged marriage in "The Family that Plays Together"; nudity and hive mind in "The Other Half of My Soul."  Probably exoticization of foreign cultures and maybe (but I hope not) even racism; maybe gender essentialist or heterosexist tropes, but I don't think they were as bad in that respect as some of my other older stories?

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Mar 16, 2024

My new novella, "Fortune-Told," is available in epub, pdf and mobi formats from itch.io, either by itself or as part of the Secret Trans Writing Lair's Spring Cleaning Bundle.

The final chapter of "The Wakened Princess" is up, in case you've been wating to read it all in one go.  Next week "Nine Months and Counting," a far-future post-apocalyptic story, will begin serializing on Saturdays.

GenderSwap_Demon · Jan 29, 2024

Sorry to bother you but I was curious to know something about one of the worlds that some of your books share. In the divergence world what species are there in the states of Utah and Oklahoma?

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Jan 29, 2024

I haven't set any stories there, so they could be anything.  If you want to write a story in the setting, you can make up whatever neospecies you want for that part of the country.

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Jan 29, 2024

Also, see this writer's guide to the setting.  It's a bit out of date, as I never updated it for the neospecies in "You Could Go Home Again", but you'll find a list of those in a comment on one of the chapters of that novel (I forget which one).

Do you have other age regression stories asides from The Mural and the Cabinet? Like on your smashwords or something, always interesting to see trans people get a second chance at life.

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Jan 27, 2024

I occasionally use age regression as a spice, not a main ingredient.  Major age regression without a chance to change back, for me, is psychological horror.  But temporary age regression can be fun or instructive.

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Jan 27, 2024

The main character of "Wings," and several supporting characters, change into little kids temporarily a few times.  The main character of "Homesick" (in "False Positives and Other Stories") gets a little younger, but not hugely.  The main characters of "Scouts" (on BigCloset and TGStorytime), mostly middle-aged men, temporarily swap bodies with younger (college-age) women. 

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Jan 27, 2024

One of the supporting characters in "Wentworth and the Mind-Body Problem" (in "Unforgotten and Other Stories") swaps bodies for most of the story with a baby girl.  Several characters in "When Wasps Make Honey" change or get changed into little girls, most of them temporarily. (Caveat about that series: lots of comphet and gender essentialism.)

I've posted a new El Goonish Shive fanfic to AO3.

TrismegistusShandy · Author · Dec 23, 2023

"A Post-Scarcity Christmas" has been posted to *False Positives and Other Stories*.  For some reason, Scribblehub sorts authors' lists of stories by the date the *first* chapter was posted, not the latest, so it's buried on the second page, thus the profile post to promote it.

I have a new metafictional novelette, "Umpteen Characters in Search of a Self-Insert," in a new bundle anthology, Santa's Secret Transfic Stash vol 4.

I finally got around to adding Shared  Universe links to all the Valentine Divergence and Trust Machines stories.

My short story, “The Accidental Detective,” is part of the Secret Trans Writing Lair One Prompt, Many Paths Bundle, with ten highly divergent stories by trans authors based on the same simple prompt. (Full disclosure: “The Accidental Detective” is also in Gender Panic and Other Stories, published a few weeks ago.)
