Looking for similar Stories

Abs

Looking for stories similar or have the same kind of atmosphere.

1: Daze in the Valley

I liked this but disliked how it felt like it took more chapters then needed to finish a single day then having a big time skip near the end. Looking for something like this that is completed because I still enjoyed reading it.

2: James 2.0
Liked the concept disliked the constant sex.

3: Life with Alpha
Liked how it was written but enjoyed more of the success of the business and how the MC becomes successful. More sex then was needed but I liked all the books related to it.

If anyone can recommend some science fiction or stories such as daze in the valley would be nice.

I have lots of bookmarked stories but they are less then 25 so I would be thankful if anyone would recommend or link me to a list.

Sorry for the bad spelling and grammar.

You need to say a bit more about the type of story you're after because I, for one, have no intention of just going to check out the stories to see what you want. And that is how many will feel too.

Want stories about people in college, there's a lot. About people in business, there's a lot more. List some subject matter and you'll get some results.

You might like one of: A New Past by Charlie Foxtrot, the Hindsight 20/20 series by SmokinDriver, or A Fresh Start by rlfj. They are all do-over stories that feature the protagonist building up a business from nothing. A New Past focuses on engineering; Hindsight 20/20 is eventually about the trucking industry, but doesn't really become about the business until book 2; and A Fresh Start is about venture capitol and investing, but also focuses on the military and politics.

Thanks for the quick reply and sorry for not including more detail.

The stories jr88 has listed I like and enjoy reading. They are not the sort of stories I would like to read currently. For example do-overs and time travel/space travel have been what I was reading up until a few days ago.

Sorry Ernest Bywater I am looking for a stories that include the following please let me know if it is lacking with information.

I do not mind the book starting off with the MC being in school or higher education. I like reading real life related issue such as family and financial problems that have to be overcome with hard work.

If the book is heavy in politics or the military I do not mind as I find it interesting reading such stories on this site. I do not like stories that are heavy in incest but can skip parts if they are.

military /politics/business/school

jr88

Finding Home by Ernest Bywater has the MC in high school, involves business, and also has some cool military and fighting aspects.

http://storiesonline.net/s/66183/finding-home

Six Month Turnaround by Morgan is an interesting story focused on the CEO of a company that manufactures car parts.

http://storiesonline.net/s/35456/six-months-turnaround

Aftermath by Al Steiner is a post-apocalyptic story that has some military aspects.

http://storiesonline.net/s/34601/aftermath

Privateer by DaRat is a fun sci-fi story with some space combat.

Most or all of the stories in my Rivers Region series should be of interest, and so should others like Odd Man in College and Star Performance

Ezzy's Chaos Band stories should fit

The Defenceman and Dman 2 should fit, but Dman 3 may be a bit out there for you

http://storiesonline.net/series/1080/stupid-boy

G Youngers Stupid series may be of interest as well

"What The Future May Bring" a good story. You might want to read (my) review of the story to see if it is what you are looking for. I think I mentioned it has a lot of plot and action. Recommended.

If you wrote a story about fans, would it be fan fiction?

When the shit hit the fan? Sometimes fans to go conventions, would that be a conventional story?

Dance a fan dango? Fanny Farmer grows fans?

Fanatic backward is attic fan.

It it is a true story would it be Fan Non-Fiction?

Stay cool, keep a fan.

"What the future may bring" is an interesting read, but rather spoilt by the constant looking-forward remarks such as "Little did she know just how soon it would be before she...". It's full of them!

Yes, and most readers would just breeze through it.

While only conventional readers will read the ones about conventions.

Fantastic, but Fanny Farmer fans would know that Fanny's forte was a collection of recipes for the food addicted.

Every author has peculiar traits, you either overlook them or move on. But it's hard to evaluate how someone will respond to one until they read the actual story.

Whatever you say, on SOL, the focus is always on Fanny's fanny, and eating delicious meals right there!

Welcome back, Nizzgrrl. Nice to see you again. You seem to disappear for long stretches at a time.

One of the problems of discussing fannies is that American (English) thinks the fanny is the buttocks, and the English (English) are sure it is the Female Genitals. Two great nations divided by a single language.

Speaking of which ... what is meant by "donkey years" ?

I just barely got my head around "dog's breakfast."

Donkeys years = a long time. One theory is it a corruption of donkeys ears, Cockneys rhyme for years (and unusually appropriate, as the ears of a donkey are long) but it could be a reference to the long lifespans of donkeys (if treated well of course).

@solitude

A lot of cockney is a combination of rhyme and relevance where both combine to create the slang, though a lot is just based on rhyme, but unfortunately imitation cockney (mockney) has become fashionable and people who have never been near Bow Bells are making up words and claiming them as rhyming slang.

Trouble - trouble and strife - wife

Some have passed into general use:
Bag - Bag for life - wife
Hampton - Hampton Wick - Dick

The cockney alphabet is probably better than the traditional one, since it makes more sense and is at least humorous, though using the right accent helps.
A for 'orses
B for mutton
C for miles
L for leather
O for a drink
R for mo (Half a moment)
X for breakfast
Y for servant (or mistress)
and so on....
I don't know of any books written in cockney though. Probably too small a customer base.
