Funny you should ask!

Addergoole/Fae Apoc: a primer
Addergoole was my first webserial and is now my 7th as well: a dark (DARK) fantasy setting in an underground boarding school where the students learn, among other things, that they are fae and can use magic.
Fae Apoc is the wider setting - named for an apocalypse that happens in 2011, when the Departed “Gods” return from Ellehem (fae-home).
It's dark. Rain rolls and bounces through the forest canopy and chimes against the windows of their little hut.
They don their coat and hood, fill their pockets with pebbles, and trudge out into the wet.
As they walk, they whisper. Each whisper goes with a pebble: lodged in the roots of an old tree; dropped in a puddle, newly formed; buried in the dirt with muddy fingers.
Each pebble is a wish, and when lightning cracks the sky, they'll know that one has been granted.
May I Lead This Dance 11: A Breather #Drama #Romance #Patreon #OneDollarPatreon
The big night continues and the doubt fills in the spaces between the dances. Would someone notice Galadin's mistakes? Would they call him out in front of all of society?
The above #MicroFiction brought to you by last night's poll and inspired by those that came prior, Po(r)tioned and Wav(er)ing and so on.

They scribed runes carefully and copied each one as many times as they had paper, and then, when they had enough, they bound everything together.
luro, to seal, they wrote on both covers, Tela, to hide, and then they’d leave the completed grimoire with their current host and move on.
At night, copying over all the pages, every time they could find more paper, they whispered Alet, to love, and let their tears thin the ink.
Now, they snuck through checkpoints and slid under barriers, climbed over fences and were very good at the spell that could slow or stop bullets. Now they made ink from walnuts or from berries, once — only once — from blood and often eeked out of the backs of broken pens. They cut quills from old tin cans and cat-litter bins. And everywhere they went, they wrote.
Isah, they’d scribe in fading brown, for peace. Teru Isah bena, to calm someone.
#TootFic 1/3: Grim(oire)
Before the Mess, before the Dust, Bo’d known nothing about bookbinding.
Then, Bo had been a dabbler in spells, knowing 3 new-age ones that got mostly imagined results. Then, Bo’d been a decent programmer & a tolerable handball player & married.
Now, Bo gathered up newsprint used to wrap ceramics, cut leather from a coat with too many bullet holes to be salvageable & too many memories to try, and carefully trimmed boards from the back of a ruined pressboard bookshelf.
Okay guys, do I shorten this #tootFic to 2 toots or do I leave in more worldbuilding/context?

Kitty-fae are people too.
