    Summary

    It turned out being the most revered witch in history didn't actually make you very good at being in a relationship. That came as a surprise to Alder too.

    Summary

    Two months after the fateful night the Camarilla attacked Fort Salem, our merry band of rebels has absconded deep into the recesses of the Cession. Nicte and Scylla decide that the rest of their ragtag new coven needs to learn to pyro-shapeshift, but Tally's magic has been strangely unreliable lately as she grieves the loss of Sarah Alder in ways only Nicte seems to really understand. When the lesson goes awry, Tally finds more within her grief than she expected to.

    Update because this 2-shot became a 9-parter: Tally and Nicte blaze a hell('s angels) of a trail back to Fort Salem to speak to a woman about a mushroom. Or is it a mushroom about a woman?

    Summary

    When a zombie virus outbroke 25 years ago, Sarah Alder led a group of survivors to an abandoned military base known as Fort Salem. While having no actual military background, Sarah quickly becomes known as The General and eventually turns Fort Salem into the biggest and safest settlement in the New England area. Tally Craven makes her way there after her mother dies, and quickly realizes that there may be more to the General than meets the eye- and more to the virus.

    Summary

    The longer she sat in bed, she recognized the private room in the infirmary, the smells of iodine and sulfur that followed her constantly. The cabin began to fade back to nothing but a feeling at the back of Tally’s mind except for the painfully real brush of warmth from Alder’s hip next to hers.
