And this fantastic magazine here: https://www.teleportmagazine.com/
I created this story from the angle of: could I write a reasonably tasteful story that begins with a man in a bathroom? Can I? Yes. Yes I can!
I dabble with the idea of writing a novel-length piece about these characters :-)

Springchild was created from the theme "Spring". I wanted to do something different with the theme, rather then come at it from a seasonal angle. There's a dark edge to Springchild. A big thank you to DL who supported me to puzzle out this piece over Kimchi and rice wine :-)
