    Thank you, Stephen King (or, a fan letter with nowhere else to go)

    Dear Stephen King, When I was a kid, I couldn’t fathom why people raved about you so much. I tried to read a couple of your novels, the famous ones that’d been made into movies. They didn’t hit me. You took too long to get to the good stuff. Possibly this is because I was… Read more

    Quarantine One-Shot #012 // A Princess’s Duty

    Princess Jessalyn was running out of time. If she heard one more person ask her about the future, she thought she might burn this whole place to the ground.
