I'm writing adapted faerie tales set in a post-apocalyptic world! 


They're short and fun!

Well, and gritty and depressing and sad and funny, depending on the story. But always short!

Several months of stories are up and available to everyone, and more are coming! Plus 90+ stories in the archives!

In the days after the Final War, before the first Swarm...


Click on the big orange link below to read nearly all of the tales! All Patreon-funded tales are available to the public after two weeks!

STORY SAMPLER


With the exception of the "older stories," all those stories were paid for by Patrons!

As mentioned, these are adapted versions of faerie tales set in a post-apocalyptic world. They share the same setting and the same set of ritual phrases, but there's no serious continuity between them, any more than there are between the faerie tales you read as a child. They're pretty short microfiction, intended to be a quick read. 

So we're clear, with exceptions, the stories are not particularly sexual or violent, especially not the former, but some are definitely not for children.

I first started writing in this setting from 2013-2014, and I'm really glad to come back to it!

I'm in the swing of things, now, and the more support I get, the more I'll produce.  Look at the stories, and decide if you want more stories

...and they all lived happily ever after, until the arrival of the Swarm.

The cool icons associated with the different pledge levels were created by DarkZerizevSkoll, and Lorc respectively, under the CC BY 3.0 license. All three icons, and more, can be found at game-icons.net, which is worth checking out if you need similar niftyness.

Some additional hints about the Swarm start to appear in the stories.

Also, at this point, I start talking to someone about custom illustrations, though that's at a higher goal level.
