View Full Version : Coma (M/F)

So. Here's a little experiment. Format is HUGE for me. How a story actually "looks", with paragraphs, spaces, the spaces and the whole "look" of the paragraphs themselves, everything adds to the content and experience of the story itself. To me anyway.

I've always hated how the format changes so drastically once posted so here's how one looks when I write it.

You're looking at what I see when I'm finished. Please do leave feedback letting me know if you like it, or dislike it because I'm thinking about editing everything I'm proud of and switching them all to this format. The space between pages isn't as perfect as I'd want them to be, but it'll have to do for now.

I also have one coming, a very, very important one. Where the format itself is part of the actual story.

Until then, here's Coma.

Enjoy.

Holy....shit.....

I absolutely loved it! I....I....wow. At times I was reading this and I literally started crying Marquis! You evoked so much emotion in this piece! OH MY DAD!!!! :p

Tell me, truthfully, is there a sequel to this? I mean...this is Bloody Brilliant!

SO POETIC. You could definitely write some tickling poetry dude!

I want to try to make a tribute to your stuff now. It's just so powerful!!!

Couldn't agree with you more that the shape of a story adds even more to it's depth.

As always you twist things up entirely into a new direction.

So I take it we can look forward to more on a similar vein. :)

You already know how I feel about the story. :redheart:

-- The formatting concept is interesting. You might have to crop a little of it though if you can. It's long at the end.

Awesome awesome awesome. I love your writing style Marquis, it is utterly unique around here.

Great job with the formatting too. I know that was giving you a headache. ;)

Now I think you should give us this other story you've been talking about before JC bursts! :D

Jesus: Is THAT why it sprinkled a little from the sky last night? :p

Thanks man. That really does mean a lot. I'm very flattered and very happy you enjoyed it. As far as a sequel goes...not really. Never had one planned.

Music: Yup. More coming. And because I know how to do it now, I probably will go ahead and reedit some of my other ones.

Crystal: :ily::redheart::bounce: I tried to cut the end off but I was using a cropping program that crops all pages at once. Doing it by hand made each jpeg file a different size. The forum would do this weird thing where it would adjust the size of the pic, and the size of the actual text.

rockshock28: Thank you very, very much for the compliment. :)

Suik: :D It WAS giving me a headache. OMG man you have no idea. Thank you free cropping program.

As far as the big one...it's coming. :firedevil

Thank you again, all of you, and HUGE thanks for voting for me too. :dancingbanana:

Aha! I've been looking forward to seeing a new story from yourself, and this one certainly does not dissapoint;

Concise and vivid descriptions... check.
Originality and envy-inspiring genius... check.
Impecable characterisation... check.
Introductory mysteriousness... check.
Inspiring... check.
Terrific dialogue... check.
Flows well and not at all cumbersome... check.
And the rest that escapes my sieve like memory... check.

I bow, again, to your brilliance sir. Tis ace.

Brilliant as always. This is some of your most original work since Fight Club came out in 1996. ;)

And I vote Yes on the new formatting idea too. Definitely adds something.

Eagerly awaiting more... :)

I have been waiting for a new story from you. Now I can't wait for "the big one!"

c7_assassin: :p And thanks for the format comment. I like this too.

jm157: Thanks again! The big one will depend on whether or not the artwork comes through before Dec 31st. If it doesn't...I'll probably hold onto it until next year. :shrug:

myth77: Touche! :firedevil

Superb writing. Can't wait to read more of your work!

This is the first time I've read this and I was doing it before bed because I figured, hey, why not? There's a clear line of delineation between erotic literature and literature, the actual focus and desire from an authorial standpoint more than likely shifting depending on what exactly is being constructed. I came in expecting erotic literature. Maybe with more of a bent and articulated voice, but at the end of the day, I came in with the expectation of erotic literature.

This isn't really that. And as such, it has no place on this forum.

Yeah, you have tickling in this story and that's all well, fine, and good, but I'd be lying to you if I feel this story belongs on this forum. It doesn't. With a shift or a strip, I could imagine this in my Reader's Digest. Nah, not that. One of those indie published short story collections with the really abstract art on the cover. Yeah. One of those. I don't see why not. This isn't a value assessment on your story as bad. It's good. Cryptic. Soft and playful in an acid whitewash where the nerves have been cauterized of feeling but the More still remains.

Not going to blow smoke your ass about creative conventions, and in truth, you'd be better off posting these as PDFs rather than images. Your minimalist style threw me for a loop, but it was a pleasant one as I realized that you were rolling into a part of my brain that had been shut off in the pre-game for bed. I didn't pick this up expecting this. I was looking for something simple. There's no better compliment to pay another writer (this isn't the forum, this is as a writer to a writer) than to call them a writer.

I know you haven't been around. If you ever do come around, hit me up so we can talk about this.

Christ. What to say to this? Stripped of everything it's become and in its purest definition: Thank you. As I've discussed in PM, I take this as a HUGE compliment and certainly not something to be taken lightly or met with the verbal equivalent of a high-five.

In fact it's appreciated...well, normally here I would say more than you know but, I'm sure you do. I'm assuming that this is what the few of us here strive for - accomplishing work that is recognized as out of place.

Thank you again. Very much. And, thanks for the GF vote.

Oh, and I have tinkered with the idea of PDF's...hmmmmm.

Oh wow...my good man, I am knocked out of the park with this one. :veryhappy:

For one thing, it's very poetic and complex. It sorta reminds me of my brother's poetry when he reads it out loud to me. The use of repetition gives the whole piece a very rhythmic feel. And I just love the desperation in the tone of the narrator at the very beginning. There's a lot of confusion in this story, but ultimately it's up to the reader to determine what's happening here. For me, the implication is that both young lovers died in the car crash, but in the afterlife they are transported back to what they were doing before the crash. And I love how well you captured the confusion, sadness, and disorientation of the accident (the narrator referring to the paramedics as angels and the doctor as God, etc.) It's just very beautifully poetic. I love it. :bubbleheart:

I'm thinking you'd make an excellent screenplay writer. ;)

Amanda - Lol. I'm a little late in replying but thank you so much for checking it out. :)

It's a HUGE compliment for me to hear someone else compare my stuff to poetry and I'm happy it was still understood despite the somewhat confusing narrative. Looking back on this now, I'm actually surprised I was able to construct it how I did and have it still remain somewhat understandable.

It is indeed left up to the reader as to the fate of the young couple. I know the answer but hopefully I left the published open-ending open enough that it leaves you feeling happy that no matter what did actually happen, it's a happy ending because they're ultimately still together. :)

Justlaugh - Thank you very much for the compliment. Thank you for taking a few minutes out of your day to give it a read as well. It's deeply appreciated.

:D
