Today I received a gift from one of my best friends. I’ll call him Ben, because that’s his name.

Ben’s known for a while that I’ve been having a hard time — with life, with love, with all sorts of things — and so he said to me, “I got you a gift that will make you feel better for at least a week.”




Dirty realism, grunge lit, creative confessions, spec fic, and assorted literary atrocities.
