Stories - of perfectly respectable lengths, thank you.

Four-digit fic: everything here is between one and ten thousand words.

While a few of these, mostly the shorter ones, were spontaneous one-sitting bits of writing, most of them are pieces that I've worked on for longer, put good amounts of thought into, often gotten edited. Most a good size to sink your teeth into.

Also, of course, some of these are series or collections of related fics, some still in progress. The multiplication tables in particular are really a ficlet collection, but involving a lot of ficlets; the others are comprised of somewhat more substantial outings.
