Settings

Welcome to my Grove!

Below is a somewhat comprehensive and somewhat alphabetical list of my settings, with a brief description of each and content warnings (CW) as needed.

Note! Sometimes I forget really obvious Content Warnings, so if you’ve read one of my settings and you’re thinking “Lyn, you really ought to have put a content warning for body horror on that one!” please tell me!

Aunt Family

Rural Fantasy in a modern era – a very old bloodline of magically-inclined people have learned to focus their power into one unmarried woman (the “Aunt”) in each generation of each family branch.

A series of connected stories mostly feature the north-western NYS branch of the family (Evangaline, Beryl, Stone, et al), but others pop up from time to time.

Content Warnings for Aunt Family: Family-Institutionalized sexism (misandry). Meddling in other people’s lives.

Bear Empire

Swords-and-sorcery and cyberpunk, thousands of years apart.
The Guardian spirits of the world each have their own groups of people; those that follow Mother Bear rule the Empire in the frozen north.

Dragons Next Door

Urban fantasy, heavy on the fantasy.
Dragons and harpies, pixies and gremlins, centaurs and ogres live side-by-side with humans in a city by the bay.

Content Warnings for Dragons Next Door: fantasy racism

Expectant Woods

Fantasy, relatively light-hearted.

The Sky Islands float high above the land and ocean on giant flower stalks. Magic exists, but most people have forgotten about it, even the magic which lifted the Islands up.

The only story in this setting so far is the aforementioned Expectant Woods, posted on Patreon.

Facets of Dusk

In every universe there are Doors, and in some worlds, there are people who can open the Doors.

In one universe, a governmental unit put together a team to explore these Doors and the worlds beyond them.

Content Warnings for Facets of Dusk: racism, violence, sex (both generally implied, specific warnings on stories for anything graphic or detailed)
