  XO, Blake (The Undergrad Years)

  Avery Aster

  For fans of the dark comedy BDSM film Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down comes an erotic exploration in domination and submission where Ivy League students let their naughtiest desires run wild…

  If you think my besties Lex, Taddy, and Vive have had some bad luck earlier this year, cut to me at Glamorama. Last thing I remembered was dancing with Diego and Miguel from my English class, but then the room started… spinning. And not in a good way! We got sick. Think Regan in The Exorcist. Taddy was rushed to the hospital. Holding on for dear life, I was carried out by the boys and taken back to their dorm.

  Now I’m waking up in Diego’s bed and Miguel keeps staring at me from across the room. I’ve wanted to get into these dudes’ pants since the first day of class. But Diego told me he likes to be tied up and—wait for it—spanked. WTF! The news on TV reports that last night we all got roofied. And Vive just texted me saying that someone is out to kill her. Could this semester get any more bizarre? –Blake Morgan, college freshman, gay best friend, virgin.

  The Undergrad Years is a naughty new adult contemporary miniseries about first loves, independence, and everlasting friendships.

  A Coming of Age Poem

  They call me Blake

  I always knew I was different

  My voice would go up just a bit too high

  I played with dolls and kept my sights on the sky

  The first time I was called a faggot…I was seven

  Although I didn’t know what that word meant

  I knew it was intended to make my spirit descend

  I wanted to kiss boys by the time I was eleven

  I always knew I was different

  Regardless, my parents adored me

  My friends protected me

  In time I learned to like me, too

  But I wanted to be loved by that one special boy

  I always knew I was different

  As I’ve gotten older the gays have, too

  We’re no longer boys but men

  Some have fucked up their lives with drugs

  Others have gotten sick with bugs

  We’re still loving like there’s no tomorrow though

  And in the end…I’m still a different kind of boy

  Please, just call me Blake

  Blake Morgan III (18): He’s starting to have feelings for Diego and discovers that being on top has its advantages. Especially when his own life is spinning out of control.

  Alexandra “Lex” Easton (18): Daughter to famed rockers Eddie & Birdie Easton, she is dumped by her hot cop boyfriend after breaking the law…again, and wants to try and leave her past behind.

  Tabitha Adelaide “Taddy Brill” Brillford (18): Roofied at a club and faced with doubts about college, Taddy questions staying in New York City or moving to France.

  Viveca “Vive” Farnworth (18): Lhaso Apso lover and heiress to Farnworth Firewater Liquor Company, Vive is a party girl who is convinced someone is out to kill her Manhattanites.

  Diego Oalo (19): He takes a liking to Blake and teaches him the art of rope in bed.

  Miguel Santana (18): As Diego’s roommate, he’s not sure what to make of The Manhattanites. He thinks they’re trouble.

  Thor Edwards (18): Blake’s roommate at college. After being dealt some life-altering news, he’s thinking of dropping out.

  Birdie Easton (39): Lex’s rehabbed mother, she suffers from sexual compulsive disorder, and is a heavy metal music icon.

  Paulina Morgan (age unknown): Blake’s protective mother who has special ESP powers and always knows when her son is in trouble.

  Leon Lartique (19): Taddy’s European boyfriend who lives in Paris. They met on a fashion shoot and have kept the flame going, albeit long-distance.

  Never Drink the Free Cocktails

  “Blake Morgan III is what Lex, Taddy, and I call a goodie-goodie. Unlike his fellow Manhattanites, he comes from a loving and supportive home where his parents encourage him to be just who he is—gay and proud! Oh, and boy, is he. Regardless, it seems anytime one of us tries to lose our Lady-V, we end up in some horrific accident. From doing time in juvie to Soho penthouse explosions and nose-diving airplanes into the Atlantic Ocean, the white wine spritzers we drank that night were no different. You ask, why does this shit-on-a-stick keep happening to us? Well, duh, you ninny. Someone is out to kill us! Isn’t that obvious?” —Vive Farnworth, wealthiest teenager in New York, socialite and aspiring gossip columnist.

  From the Desk of Fairfield School for Boys

  September 21, 1988

  Dear Mr. and Mrs. Morgan,

  We enjoy having Blake in our school. He is bright and enthusiastic about his studies. However, it has come to our attention that he brings his Barbies to class. He talks to them, gives them names, and is convinced they are his real-life friends. He admits that you’ve even built him a dollhouse in your backyard. Good for you!

  While his teachers are amused by his delights and encourage him to have an active imagination, we find his attraction to these specific kinds of toys alarming. With that said, I’ve attached a list of suggested games and toys for young men his age which are more appropriate. Please call my office if you have any questions.

  Yours Fondly,

  Principal Mark Strickland

  April 18, 1993

  Dear Mr. and Mrs. Morgan,

  Today, your son wore makeup to school. While we applaud his chutzpah, especially the fuchsia-colored lipstick and matching sparkly nail polish, we do not allow ten-year-olds to wear cosmetics to class. It’s distracting, draws unwanted attention, and causes him to be taunted by his peers.

  When questioned as to where Blake got them, he says you gave him the cosmetics, at his request, and told him to do with it as he pleased. This age can be trying, and we want to make it as easy for Blake to come into his manhood as possible. We care about his well-being and have sent him to the infirmary to wash his hands and face.

  Take Care,

  Principal Mark Strickland

  June 3, 1996

  Dear Mr. and Mrs. Morgan,

  Blake’s test scores are exceptional. He doesn’t let his dyslexia get the best of him. He remains one of our top students and is on the road to great academia. Regardless, after
the recent mishap where his classmates baited a pack of dogs to maul your son on his way home from school, we fear for his safety. We empathize with him and you during this troubling situation.

  Nevertheless, because Blake continues to express his newfound sexual orientation freely and with such an in-your-face manner, he poses a threat to our entire student body and himself. We cannot invite him back in the fall and are truly sorry.

  I’ve attached a letter of recommendation for Blake to attend Avon Porter Academy. This private (and selective) college preparatory was named the number one girls’ boarding school by the Manhattanite Times and will be going co-ed in the fall. They should welcome Blake with open arms. And again, we’re sorry to hear about the dog attack. It didn’t happen on our grounds; therefore, it’s out of our hands.

  Goodbye and Good Luck,

  Principal Mark Strickland

  Mr. Yoo-hoo

  December 2002

  Glamorama, Upper West Side, New York

  My mother, Paulina Morgan, told me while growing up that I was always early for everything in life.

  She’d said, “When you were born, you weighed two pounds, six ounces, and were three months ahead of schedule. Shoot, you were so tiny I had to bathe you in a mixing bowl because I figured you’d drown in the kitchen sink.”

  Isn’t that cute?

  As I got older and learned how to read and write, I often inverted my letters and sometimes words. There was a period of my life around the age of nine where I’d speak and say things sorta backwards, too. The boys in school used to say I was dumb, while the teachers diagnosed me as dyslexic.

  Refusing to put me in a ‘special’ school, my mom had stated, “Honey, your brain is just running so fast that your tongue can’t catch up with what you’re thinking. Slow down. You don’t always have to be the first at everything. Take your time.”

  I never did.

  When puberty had struck, I started getting hair under my armpits, and I noticed I got an erection every time I— thought about/caught sight of/stood next to/got a whiff of—the older boy who lived across the street from where I’d grown up.
