223A Passionate Understanding: Vignettes Through the Years » by lilyjack00 Most are extremely brief, all will be stand-alone vignettes, completely unhindered by plot. ;-) Some sweet, some bittersweet, some humorous, some poignant, all romantic. When you get to the end of the "chapter" it is over. The end. If you like 'em, I've got seven or so already written, another half dozen partly written. If you hate 'em, I can quit at any time. Thanks, lj

6 Dark Caller by lilyjack00 This is an old story from 2012 that was deleted by my haunted laptop a while back. No kidding.

On a side note, my Growing Old With Kitty fic will be disappearing from here very soon. If you'd like a digital copy, just message me.
