  1. Flash Fiction - Chaos Prison

    This is a 1,000 word Flash Fiction challenge piece born of a randomised title. I've just posted an excerpt here as it already exists online, so if you like it, please follow for the rest.

  5. Final Exam, ending.

    They continued on, as they had for the past few weeks, and Tatyana’s pain was tempered as she realized they were nearing the end of the passes. She would soon complete her challenge and win the title of Morriganian. Something she had been striving so mightily for and for so long was no longer a distant goal. It was so far within her grasp as to seem inevitable. She would also be rid of Fisk and his ingrates.
