If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat.

If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support.
