Ignorance is a blade. Knowledge forms its hilt.

*set in the same universe as the RALI series


Who wants to have a blast diving into RALI from ​Rell’s point of view or see Jun’s side of things in Pearl ​Before Swine? That’s what bonus stories are for!

How did younger Jun get his scar or Pike his flute? ​What was Nyen up to on the island in River’s End? ​Bonus stories are perfect for that, too!

Access stories like these along with award-winning ​stand-alone shorts, art, poetry, and exclusive ​performances via my Patreon. Some are available ​free to everyone. Others are just for my patrons, so ​check out the membership tiers.
