Prompt Short Story: Love & Mystery in the New ‘Wild’ West (Interviews with a Sorcerer #6)

Alright then, so you want to know more about magical oaths. And a story, of course, always a story. You asked why the oath causes pain before death, why it doesn’t just kill. I have an answer, but you’re not going to like it. On someone with their defences down, the broken oath would simply …

Prompt Short Story: Young Love (Interviews with a Sorcerer #4)

Falling in love…so we’re hitting the deep question today, then? Alright. It can be hard for a supernatural to love.

Prompt Short Story: Final Lesson
