Boston ‘verse

The Boston ‘Verse is a series of free short stories on Archive Of Our Own, centered around a new Harvard student and his developing BDSM relationship with a Boston local. I started the series many years ago, before I became a published author - in fact, it’s the only remaining online work from my pre-publishing days.

Although the Boston ‘Verse began as unapologetically self-indulgent id-fic that I wrote as a distraction while struggling with other projects, it quickly became a reader favorite, which inspired me to continue. If you're new to the series, you can expect plenty of hot, kinky sex scenes featuring safe, sane, and consensual BDSM, particularly highlighting the importance of mutual trust and open communication. These stories are much lighter on both plot and angst than my books, with most of the emphasis placed on erotica and relationship development.

The Boston ‘Verse installments are hosted on AO3, and should be read in chronological order, as listed below. Please carefully read the tags included in each story’s header for all content labels and warnings.
