A collection of non-connected one shots. Results of prompts I find on Reddit, get given by friends, or dream up in the middle of the night. They can be part of a fandom or not, angsty, fluffy, serious or humoristic, descriptive or narrative. In short, I write something, I put it here. If you have a prompt, leave it in the comments and I may just do it!
