Have a tale to share this week? Maybe a short story or a part of a larger tale? Post a link in the comments below.
It has been oh so very long since I’ve been around, but the 10th anniversary post has me nostalgic. My very cursory poking around seems to indicate it’s been a long time since Thursday Tales have been a regular feature on the old Odeck. I’m not sure if it was officially retired, or if it just trickled out, but would…

Spoiler warning for Game of Thrones

The Joker reflects on re-writing history.
I finally got my act together enough to finish the next section. In it we learn some secrets that will force Emma to make some hard choices.
Is there something going on that Emma and Rilen don't know about?
