My third update in the month of November! I didn't think it was going to be possible, but a bit of inspiration struck and I wrote another chapter.

Happy Black Friday Day! LOL. For those of you that celebrate Thanksgiving, Happy Belated Thanksgiving Day!

I bring you another chapter of The Nearest To My Heart. You can get caught up on previous chapters over at Livejournal where I host my archive. If you're new to this story or just need a refresher on what happened you can get all caught up over there.

What's this story all about? It's a different twist on the triangle. A helpful summary for those of you thinking of reading this story:

During the Beatles Christmas show concert dates they strike up a friendship with their co-liners the Debutantes an up and coming black girl group from New York (Loosely based on The Ronettes). Paul and John both find themselves interested in the lead singer and budding songwriter, Charlie 'Tilly' Tillman. Will friendship turn to love with Paul and Charlie or John and Charlie, and will society and the demands of the lads fame ruin things before they properly begin?

The Nearest To My Heart - Chapter Twenty Two - Lets Fall In Love, Part One

Please feel free to leave feedback here or at the site where I host the chapter. I'd love to know your thoughts on the progression of this story.

The first update in December. Maybe, another one of the horizon? I'm not sure, but I do hope you enjoy this chapter. I decided to tell this one in reverse. I hope it's not found to be confusing, but it was very important that the scene in the beginning start off the chapter.

New to the story? Need a refresher? Check out my archive on Livejournal.

This story is my take on a triangle. Hopefully it's seen as a bit different as it strays for the traditional confines of a triangle.

And a summary for those of you thinking about reading it.

As always I encourage readers to leave feedback. Even if you didn't like what I've done or have a bone to pick as long as it's constructive I'm open to feedback. You can leave it here in this thread or post your thoughts to the chapter. I will respond.

Hey, guys! More for you. Well, I'm reaching the end of this story as I've stated previously. I do hope you're still enjoying it. Please, feel free to let me know what you think here or where I host the story over on Livejournal. Keep in mind that criticism is welcome, but keep it constructive, every time I work on this story I'm always trying to improve.

I want to say Hello to returning readers as well as new ones. If you're new to the story or need refreshing you can do so at the archive. All of the chapters are located there.

Here is a summary of the story.

During the Beatles Christmas show concert dates they strike up a friendship with their co-liners the Debutantes an up and coming black girl group from New York (Loosely based on The Ronettes). Paul and John both find themselves interested in the lead singer and budding songwriter, Charlie 'Tilly' Tillman. Will friendship turn to love with Paul and Charlie or John and Charlie, and will society and the demands of the lads fame ruin things before they properly begin?

The Nearest To My Heart - Chapter Twenty Five - Blue

Also, I wanted to alert readers of dasliebchenkind, that she's updated both of her stories! That's right Halcyon Days and Sighs and Whispers has been updated after a hiatus stretching back to Summer of last year. Two stories I highly recommend, both stories featuring George as the 'lead', but great ensemble writing. I highly recommend her stuff.

Hello!

The time has come. This story has reached its conclusion. I had an idea in mind for how I wanted this story to go, but it seemed to go a different route. Not your typical triangle, perhaps not even truly a triangle.

I do hope you enjoyed this story. I enjoyed writing it and sharing it with others to read. I want to thank everyone who took the time to read this story, and I want to give a special thank you to those of you who took the time to comment.

It means a great deal to writers who post on a public forum to receive feedback it's an encouraging, and I appreciate it.

For those of you new to this story or for anyone needing to get caught up you can catch up on previous chapters at the archive.

For those curious about what the story is about here is a short summary.

During the Beatles Christmas show concert dates they strike up a friendship with their co-liners the Debutantes an up and coming black girl group from New York (Loosely based on The Ronettes). Paul and John both find themselves interested in the lead singer and budding songwriter, Charlie 'Tilly' Tillman. Will friendship turn to love with Paul and Charlie or John and Charlie, and will society and the demands of the lads fame ruin things before they properly begin?

The Nearest To My Heart - Chapter Twenty Six - Curtain Call, Epilogue

For those of you curious about what my next story will be about I can say it will be about George and Annette. The 'missing' scenes of their relationship from this time period. I haven't written a word of it yet, but look for it in the upcoming year.

Exciting news!

Well, to me, and hopefully readers who follow this thread.

I'm back with a brand new spanking story! This time around it's George centered. So, for all you George Harrison fans you might want to check this out. This story goes hand in hand with The Nearest To My Heart, except it's told with the focus on George and Annette's romance.

Words Of Love - Prologue

Feel free to leave your thoughts here or at the Livejournal page where the story is posted.

Also, something else for those of you who are looking for Beatles Fan Fiction to read, I Saw Her Standing There, written by suburban-boho, is a story centered around Maureen Starkey, and her relationship with a young woman by the name of Alice. A coming of age story, set against the backdrop of the 60s. It's femslash and it's brilliant. You should give it a read.

For those of you who've read The Nearest To My Heart and are currently reading Words Of Love I've got a treat for you!

You can think of this as a glimpse into the possible future of Charlie, Paul and John. Set around 1968'. Charlie is staying with Paul at Cavendish, and so is John with Yoko.

What happens when Charlie and John have a moment alone to talk? And, what do they talk about?

Hello!

I've updated Words Of Love. You can read the previous chapter here. You can get caught up on all of the chapters at the archive.

Words Of Love is the story of George Harrison's budding relationship with Annette Grant, the youngest member of The Debutantes a black girl group from New York. The Beatles befriend the girls during their Christmas shows in 1963. This story takes place during the events of The Nearest To My Heart, but Words Of Love is told with the focus on George and Annette.

Words Of Love - Chapter Ten - A Future Proposal - George and Annette get to know each other better on their day out together, which ends with an eyebrow raising offer from George to Annette.
