Hello readers, I am the author "therealshackleford1."
I'm not really one to broadcast a lot of public information out there, but if you would like to know more about myself or my stories, feel free to ask!
I will say that I'm not the typical fanficiton writer. I am a deep lover of classic literature, and while I'll never be as good as authors such as Hugo, Dickens, or Dumas, I certainly attempt to write in my best abilities. I don't obsess over "fandoms" nor do I really even recognize their existence. I simply write from my imagination, which is a pretty big place sometimes. I'm not a very social person, and don't really have much of a life. I am bacially just a hippie from the late 60s, and that's all I can really say about myself. I simply remember having a great childhood, and write through my passion of nostalgia.
Come and Go with Ed:
Not the typical romance story. Sure there is situational romance and things of that nature, but nothing harsh. What this story truly is is a story of the Kankers. Everyone loves to beat up on the Kankers as nothing more than ugly, nasty trailer trash. But in my story, they have a much harder life than many people would like to think. While I don't take the horrible route (rape, abuse, etc) that many others take, I do examplify their poverty and upbringing as sources not of frustration or anger, but as events in their lives that they want to get past in order to achieve a successful life. The moral of the story: you have to put the past behind you to move on. And what a past there is. This story is filled with fun teenage antics, reflections between middle class life and that of poverty, and lots of backstory and history to bridge the gaps. Painting it all in place is the budding relationship between Double D and Marie. It is their being together that brings the whole story together. Their relationship is not the subject of the story, nor is it the focal point. The story is not about why they like each other or anything like that. The story is simply about how on relationship is able to reverse a horrible trend. The story begins with the romance, but ends with the lessons that are learned from both sides of the story: both Ed and Kanker.
EDIT: Currently under construction. I am rewriting many of the chapters and reworking a lot of the magic. Should be all completed in a couple weeks.
Just a fun little parody of E. Allen Poe's The Raven. It focuses on Stu Pickles, a man deeply haunted by his niece who is faking a broken leg to get attention. On dark and windy morning at 4 am, he sees his life reflected back from a pot of chocolate and milk. Quoth the pudding: "stir some more..."
