Teenage Witches in Volatile Figments

Sometimes, the inspiration for one of my stories comes from a meme.

There was a meme going around a while ago (which, of course, I can’t find now) that said something along the lines of, “sure, everyone wants me to have school spirit, but when I summon spirits in the gym, that’s going too far.” Okay, so I’ve horribly mangled whatever it said (which is probably why I can’t find it), but that was the gist of it.

And thus, “Spirit Week” was born. I played around with the idea until I had a plot that involved some teenage witches accidentally turning people at their school into spirits when a spell went slightly sideways. It’s silly and fun, with just a tiny touch of the darkness that permeates the other stories inĀ Volatile Figments.

Volatile Figments is also the only place to date where you can read “Spirit Week.” So check it and the other stories in that collection out!
