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 …

CONTENT WARNING! Torture, towards the end; not explicit or detailed, affected text is under the + Something I’m proud of, but that people don’t know about… I spent last week telling you all about the size of a sorcerer’s ego, and you want a heartwarming story I kept to myself?

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: Vacation, Schmaycation (Interviews with a Sorceror #3)

As a sorcerer, dealing with people who don’t know you’re a sorcerer can get tricky. Officially, we’re not meant to tell people who don’t already know, or haven’t figured it out for themselves.

Prompt Short Story: Goddamn Dog Smell (Interviews with a Sorceror #2)

Half the world knows about and believes in magic and supernatural stuff, half doesn’t. Some folk’ll deny what’s right in front of their face. I don’t have much time for that idiocy. I know some who love living with the commons – the ones who don’t know about our version of the world. They help …

Prompt Short Story: Glamour (Interviews With a Sorcerer #1)

Prompt Short Story: The Ancient Stranger (Lawkeepers 12)

1: I have gathered you all here today… Jeremy waited for the elevator doors to close, having carefully checked and counted everyone getting on. The right number, so probably the right people.

Prompt Short Story: Found (Lawkeepers 11)

Justinia clenched her fists tightly behind her back, the only outward sign of her emotions. Her face calm, she continued to study the map on the wall, and the manuscript on the table, asking the occasional question of the gentleman who showed it to her so eagerly. He wouldn’t be so eager if he knew …

Prompt Short Story: Penance (Lawkeepers 10)

Content Warning: mild sexual assault, crude sexual language, drunkenness Jeremy yawned and forced his eyes open, groggy with sleep. His head, full of cotton wool, hung heavily on his neck as he pushed the blanket back and planted his feet on the soft, warm carpet of the bedroom floor. The bathroom was a few short, …
