Unaffiliated Stories – Urban Fantasy

These are all the stories that are (as yet) unconnected to a specific universe. Most of these were written as part of the Daily Snippits so the word count is all over the place, but some are prompt fills for more orderly challenges.

Stories are listed in order of newest to oldest, so it’s easy to find stuff you haven’t read yet! 😁
