About: Five Cities

A Big Terrible Thing happened, but the place that became the Five Cities wasn’t as important as it thought it was and mostly nothing awful happened to it directly. Nonetheless, life changed and the population shifted and the Cities’ council found more important things to do than keeping back the wild green that had always been growing along the edges of the city.

Like any place, it grew and changed and things became notorious and things became forgotten and people lived their lives and then got around to dying.

These are short stories that all relate to the Five Cities, at different times throughout its inception and growth. Tags like “The 1000 Gardens” or “The Bridge” focus on specific localities or themes. Or you can look at all the entries here.
