Here at home

This is a collection of my fiction/fantasy writing, stuff that formerly went on the Gopherhole and now finds a separate home here on my site. It's been a long time coming (37 years!), but I'm finally comfortable enough with all this to pursue fiction regularly. I mainly work on our group shared world, Pennyverse, but ideas outside of that slowly pile up with time.
I write a whole lot more than just fiction, if you're curious; I maintain my own blog for rambles, and occasionally infect the group blog with it too. I'm also currently working on an updated Tesserae, a site about web design.
Pennyverse is the story of a coastal town of brightly colored animal people and the things their messed up heads do. What exactly that entails is still shaping up; if spectral geckos, crackpot conspiracies, puppy love, and looking for adventure 10 years in the past sounds appealing, you'll probably like what we've got going.
I'd strongly recommend you look at the world and character pages on toyhou.se, especially given that we've rewritten a ton of it. Everything's still in early stages, plus Caby's art is just lovely to look at anyway.
Stories are listed in the reverse order in which they happened, split up by character arc (or lack thereof). Most of these are narrated by the lad in question (Seb or Colton, generally).
Greater Apricot Bay
These are stories that aren't tied to a greater world. One-offs, generally.
