Hi! I'm Ren Basel. I'm a queer disabled person, and I write #ownvoices fantasy starring the characters I wish I'd been able to read about when I was younger. I also make digital art, read tarot, and perform in Renaissance faires!



The Trans Tarot ($5 Patrons only)

The Trans Tarot is a long-term art project, with the intent to represent transgender people in a medium where we are so often forgotten.

Follow it here. Notes and progress photos posted on Mondays.

Triumvirate (Free Skyrim fanfiction)

Sidari is a thief. Morzol is an assassin. Gwynn is Forsworn. Together as a polyamorous triad, they navigate the hellish nightmare that is Dragon Crisis Skyrim.

Read it here. Updated Tuesdays.

Arcana ($1 & up Patrons only)

Arcana is a series of standalone flash fiction works, each based on a random card pulled from my tarot deck. 

Follow it here. Updated Wednesdays.

Dungeons and Dumbasses (Free serial)

Dungeons and Dumbasses is the write-up of my household's ongoing D&D campaign, featuring a whole lotta queer folks and tons of bad rolls. Arc 1, "Ender City," is a cyberpunk fantasy following Spyd3r--a hacker, cyborg, and vampire--as they team up with allies to track down a missing comrade, and stumble into something much, much bigger.

Follow it here. Updated Thursdays.

The Queen's Will ($10 serial)

Siblings Adelaide and Mathias Allard came to Oldport Crag for work, not for intrigue. But there's a lack of one and an abundance of the other, and once they cross paths with the city's underground resistance, there's no backing out. 

Updated Fridays.




Original Fiction


Blossom (Patron-Exclusive)

The local herbalist is a dangerous friend, and a valuable enemy.

Content warnings: misogyny, infertility, abuse, poisoning, death of an abuser.

The Sailor and the Storyteller (Patron-Exclusive)

In a tavern by the sea, a pirate captain offers to buy a stranger a drink. In return the stranger tells her a story.

Content warnings: Alcohol/drinking.

Read it here.

The Queen of Cups (Free)

A mysterious Oracle resides on the seashore, blessing ships and telling fortunes for those who can pay her price. For new-made captain Theo Marinos, the price is higher than it first seems. A standalone piece inspired by the Queen of Cups tarot card.

Content warnings: Drowning, brief mention of alcohol, spiritual possession.

Read it here.

Midnight Magic (Free)

Late at night, a trio of queer witches comes together to cast a spell. 

Read it here.

Skyrim Fanfiction (Free)


Prophecy's End


Harkon is dead, and Serana has parted ways with the Dawnguard to bring her mother home, and to grieve. But home is full of bitter ghosts, and Serana has changed too much since she first left.
Content warnings: Minor violence, blood, parental abuse implied

Read it here.

Speak to Me Now and the World Will Crumble
