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. At present, I'm mostly working on two worlds: Calelira and the Pennyverse.
Of course, this isn't everything; essays and opinion pieces I write go over on the group Somnolescent blog, and Tesserae is all my technical web design writing. If you like fiction, though, hopefully you'll like something I've got on offer here.
Calelira...probably the closest thing I have to an outright passion project. Originally a world I created with a former friend in early 2015, Calelira is a world of exploration, traps, and treasure set in the Age of Sail. Oh, and it's got furries in it, I suppose.
Much of the focus right now is on rebuilding the central empire of the world, Elinar, plus much of the lore and world concepts surrounding things like spells and spirits. It's taken me a long time so far, and I don't see it going away any time soon.

|The Fatal Commons||N/A||A strange library of books about people and a rather unfriendly bookkeeper to go with them. It's up to Felix to find a way out before he learns what he shouldn't.|
Pennyverse is kind of hard to explain; imagine a surrealist, existential soap opera featuring cute, brightly colored animals, and that's about what you get. It's mostly a personal thing between Caby, the group, and I, but I'll post what I think is worth posting either way.
I'd strongly recommend you look at the world and character pages on toyhou.se, bios and especially Caby's art are important to getting it.
