Mission Statement
--you're sorry, terribly sorry about the blood--
We're a small collective of writers dedicated to dedication. We demand visceral yearning, bloodlust. Bloodstains you can't get out. Language that flows raw, unabashed. In a deeper dimension, this discourse is testament to your redemption. We are the bloodied second chances scarred over until they turn to stone. A sanctuary.
