    Summary

    It begins on a dark and stormy night: doesn't it always? You're fleeing the boudoir of a personal friend, whose curves are in the right places. At least you think they're in the right places: there is always the possibility that she could be concealing eldritch non-Euclidean geometries beyond comprehension. Because, you know. Women.

    You are... you have been... compromised. The Worst Muse is in your head.

    Summary

    “Scholars have long assumed that Lord Henry Warren was the prototype of Oscar Wilde’s ‘Lord Henry Wotton’ in The Picture of Dorian Gray, and that he may have known more about the mysterious disappearance of his friend, painter Basil Holland (the known antecedent of Wilde’s ‘Basil Hallward’), than he ever admitted in his life.” A bit of metafictional fun with The Picture of Dorian Gray, imagining that its characters were based on Wilde's own contemporaries, and that one of them wrote a secret tell-all.
