a newsletter-exclusive serial fic!
In a city that never sleeps lives a lonely artist struggling to get by.
Archie Gant has poured everything he has into bringing his graphic novel, Midnight Fed, to life. On the page, he can let his imagination—and his demons—run wild. In real life? Not so much. Archie is shy and antisocial, and will do almost anything to avoid interacting with people.
Until a late-night chance meeting with web tech slash history grad student Nathan Czerniak reminds him there is a world outside his comic. Nathan is smart, curious, and seems genuinely into Archie's work.
But can Archie break down his walls to take a chance on a stranger? Or will he hide in the safety of the world he's created? And what's going on in that fictional world, anyway...?
