Novellas - and other Big Things.

Five-digit fic: everything here is over ten thousand words.

Two novellas (one epistulary), one long series, and one dead WIP. Though, believe you me, I have plenty more dead WIPs of this length (or aspiring to be of this length) than are archived here.

These are the big kahunas, at least by my standards, most the work of months or years (though "Arcana Viscera" was three weeks), each heavily betaed and edited. Enjoy!
