Short Stories by Orin Drake
I write because to speak these things would be silly.
"Short Stories" include everything from bits and pieces, snippets of something larger, to multi-chaptered short-ish works-in-progress. A lot of these are actually interconnected... but I suppose one of these days I'll get around to explaining how. The newest ones are at the top, oldest at the bottom.
Smile, baby. Chances are...
Like Death finished
I will come for you...

No matter where you fell.
Sin of Silence finished
He is pledged and accepted.
There Had Been Twelve finished
These things are truly quite unreasonable.

This cycle is unbroken.

Can change everything.

How much longer, how much longer...
Nostra Cruciatus (hopefully) Ongoing
A medium of souls, an old-style magician and a boy with the potential to bring about a new magic all his own... Easy, right?

Mysterious meetings after the tower turns... part of something larger.
