The short version

A couple of weeks back, i posted a debunk of some rather wild claims about trans women committing rape. Unfortunately, the claim was in the form of a dead cat — a simple assertion, with very little substantiation — while the rebuttal takes a bit more. …

Part 1: Beginnings (3)/Chapter 3: Garrou

As explained previously, i am putting up the first part of a full-length story, the tale of Zea and Jaditz: also a lot more about the origins of Cassonne. This is the third instalment: if you want to start from the beginning, click here.

This will eventually be the first…

Part 1: Beginnings (1)/Prophesy, Dream and Chapter 1: Awakening
