In Short

Master post for all stories under or near 5k, though a few slightly longer works may be listed here to keep them with the rest of the stories of that type.

About

Some of the shorts are a response to prompts on the Workshop on Rough Trade or our writing server on Discord. Others are self-prompted in some fashion. And still others are part of a short-format challenge like a bingo or an advent calendar.

Most of them are not beta’d. There are a variety of fandoms, central characters, relationships, and gen fic. I write in Microsoft Word and rely on it to tell me my final word count. Programs can vary in how they determine what a word is. So, please don’t paste my story into gdocs and then write to tell me my word count is off. Seriously. (Yes, that happened.)

The stories are not connected to one other unless I specifically say so, nor are they connected to any of my other works. I may sometimes use worldbuilding, themes, or characters from another fic I’ve written. I may even write fanfic of my own work. Also, it’s possible a short story may inspire a longer work.

  • They are complete as is.
  • There is no plan for sequels or new “chapters,” but you never know…I might be inspired to continue something into a longer work.
  • None of my stories are up for adoption, including the short ones.
  • Most of these are a response to a prompt, not a prompt themselves.
  • If you find inspiration in them, that’s great, but please write your own thing rather than continuing mine.
