It started with a little story called "The Confidant" and went from there. Some of these have pictures, others don't. Some have happy endings, some don't. But most are nice and long. See what you like.

A quick story to string together some AI images I came up with. Nothing too deep, but hopefully fun.

News on the Nines


Serial, updated sporadically. Lucas is in on the story of his young life. The cheerleaders at his high school are clearly practicing witchcraft. Or possibly vampires. Maybe werewolves? Well, whatever it takes, he'll get to the bottom of the story. Warning! It’s unfinished.

The Confidant


My first, and maybe most popular story. A high school jock confides in his friend about the strange things that seem to be happening to his body and his life. Told in the first-person. Lots of (lo-rez) images.
