A Short of Sorts: Vice of Reason

Super cool background illustrations by L!

Though the story itself is, um, a tad bit dark. And sad. I’m sorry??? I blame the prompts!!! Speaking of, remember that I’m still taking prompts for the next story, and the prompt theme is HALLOWEEN! (You can check out this post for more info, but feel free to prompt here.) Anyhow, here’s all the prompts!:

This round we had 13 prompts from 7 peeps:


  • I want a world with a season where EVERYTHING dies every year. Bonus points if it’s a beautiful season. — Moo
  • Scare-bro — Abs


  • My birthday! — @sdeoul
  • pumpkin stew, bitching and moaning ghosts, someone’s scarf is so long they keep stepping on it and tripping, ink-stained fingers 🎃👻✒ aaaand maybe some sort of secret santa gift exchange, but for Halloween instead of Christmas?? sort of meaning that this is a veryyy broad idea, it could also be secret santa Halloween pranking or something — @byrdeblue


  • Caramel — @jemsauce
  • “The Unlikely Vice of Reason” — @lysaille (Not exactly prompted, but I took inspiration from the typo of mine that they caught.)
  • Decay. And school. — @telari


  • chickens! sEE! GHOSTS! — @alliepennauthor

If you prefer a different medium, this story’s also up on Instagram and Tumblr (and there’s a Tweet for this post)! You can also find out more about the project, past stories, and how to get your own custom stories on this page. And if you’re enjoying the project and want to support it, consider dropping me a Ko-Fi?

See you guys in two weeks for the next story!

Prompt Call: Autumn


Prompt call time! Give me your prompts, and I’ll take every last one and work it into a short story. This time, the theme is AUTUMN! Hit me with your cozy, cool, and maybe even a little creepy prompts. Anything goes: ideas, words, pictures, poetry, music, whatever you can throw at me. You don’t have to follow the theme, it’s just a nudge to get your brain juices flowing. Otherwise, the general rules apply:

  • You can prompt at any point in time, on any social media where I lurk (like on these posts on Insta, Twitter, and Tumblr), but if it might get worked into the next story if it’s later.
  • You can give me as many prompts as you like—just pretty please keep it within reason.
  • Keep prompts PG-13, and nothing offensive.
  • By giving me prompts, you’re giving me the honor to do whatever I’d like with them in/with my stories as my content. Prompts themselves remains to whoever owns them.

For more info, stories, and custom stories, check out the project page. And if you want to support this project, consider giving me a coffee on Ko-Fi?

Now, hit me with those prompts! And look forward to the story written with last theme’s prompts going live tomorrow!!!

Bacon, out.
