I can't wait to read everyone's stories!

I'm in group 7 - drama / biweekly / an educator

Our Gentle Sin

Aslan is a Kadyrovite, a member of Chechnya’s secret police responsible for ridding the country of its filth: traitors and homosexuals, especially. But when Aslan’s dark secret follows him home from a summer vacation, he has to choose between his love and his life.

So excited to read all your stories soon!

Souvenirs

Lipstick stains, stock photos, secret dates — this is the art of quiet love.

Group 2: Suspense/bulletproof/a rancher


Pep Talk

Officer Travis Flint is handcuffed, bleeding, and has less than ten minutes to live.  A voice from his past might be the only thing standing between a slim chance at life and a very certain, very violent death.

Group 9: Horror / Formal Attire / Miner

Diablo De Plata

Nicholas is desperate for a unique new venue for his opera and the underground cavern in the Diablo De Plata mine sounds perfect. But it’s not easy to get in, or out.

Group 3: Comedy/Immortality/a statistician

There’ve been two genres in SSC that made me give up in past years- political satire and comedy. This year I’ve gotten BOTH. This one was the hardest I’ve ever fought to get a story out, and I don’t hate it (aside from the title).

Hot Dog Pizza

 

Jeremy Rossi has spent his life running his family’s pizza restaurant, and he’s not about to let some small-town fool ruin his family’s good name.
