Hi! I’m Ethan. I write interactive fiction about magic and self-care.

I use my work to imagining a society that prioritizes well-being over capital. My characters struggle to understand themselves and each other, not to pay rent. In representing this kind of future, I hope to bring us one step closer to a world that values people for their humanity, not their productivity.

It’s crucial that I keep my games free, but I’d like to offer extra rewards for people who support me. You’ll be able to access several exclusive features, including updates, polls, and short fiction.

If you’re interested in stories that feature queer + disabled characters, environmentally conscious cultures, innovative magic and education systems, kids taking care of each other, healthy communication, or weird plants/birds/creatures, you’ll find something to like about my work.

Your support helps me justify the time I put into my work. Any amount helps—thank you for your interest in my writing!

I create a lot of people and places that don't show up in my stories. In this tier, you'll read about all the extra details that keep the world running.


I also find lots of strange/shimmering/lovely things on the internet! I'll share them with you — think of it as a mixtape of cool media.

- worldbuilding posts

- monthly recommendations

- all above rewards

Apprentice
$9 or more per month

You'll get exclusive pieces of short fiction set in the world of my twine stories as well as substantial excerpts from upcoming games.


I'll use this feature to test new characters and different writing styles.


Gives you access to:

- 500+ word excerpts

- all above rewards 

Alchemist

Sometimes I write criticism about video games. I don't write a new piece every month, but when I do, you'll have access to it at least one week before I post it publicly. 


Gives you access to:


- all game criticism 1 week before publication

- all above rewards
