The "Gift Horse" Series by California Kat

Summary:

Gift Horse

rn

This is an *in progress* series of stories.  “Gift Horse” started as a Sookie’s Secret Santa gift to Suki59; however, I’ve had many requests to write more for this story.  One request in particular, from the person who stepped in to beta “Gift Horse” when I was worried that I wouldn’t get it done in time–Kleannhouse–swayed me.  Plus, the person responsible for most of the art for my stories, Sephrenia, kept bashing me upside the head with what she called “inspiration,” but what looked like a baseball bat to me. 

rn

Needless to say–I heeled.

rn

So–let me welcome you to the “Gift Horse” world!

You should read the stories in order, but–unlike the “chapter stories” I write–I will (hopefully) leave each one-shot with a natural ending so that I can stop at any time (if inspiration stops hitting me).

Summary: Past Featured Story

 

“Scrooged” is a one-shot set in the “Gift Horse” world.  It is the second in what I hope will become a series of one-shots.  Will Eric get to kill Bill?  Or is Bill right to believe that his allies, Freyda and Felipe, will rescue him?  And how will a phone call from Sookie change everything for both Eric and Bill?
