Faerie Apocalypse

Although an apocalypse and a half feature strongly in the timeline of the fae-apoc setting, most of the stories are set either well before or well after the event.

A dark urban fantasy series, Faerie Apocalypse is set in the modern world. The Ellehemaei fae, halfbreed bastards of beings from another plane who left more than two millennia ago, live hidden among the humans; many have faded into humanity, exhibiting nothing more than a rare psychic quirk, while their more powerful cousins hide their inhumanity behind glamours called Masks. A dark underworld of faerie and human trafficking underlies much of the setting.

The apocalypse, brought on by a return of the prodigal gods, leaves the world’s population, governments, infrastructure, and technology devastated, its humans struggling to survive, its fae in hiding from the unforgiving remnants of humanity.

Addergoole is a school in the faerie apocalypse universe, as well as a subsetting and the name of the web-serial set there. Teenagers sent away to boarding school learn that, not only is the school not what they expected, but neither they nor their parents are either. Fifty years later, they struggle to continue existing in the post-apoc world that wants nothing to do with their ilk.

Stories in modern fae apoc include:
Switch, a story of revenge
Constraint, a story of need
Whisky Lullaby (working title), a novella of fighting the monsters
Wings, an incomplete story of transformation
Collateral Damage, an accidental kidnapping
Walking with Him, about branding yourself, and Names.
Love and Bindings and Shoes, Earrings, Boi are Addergoole stories set later than the serial, available in Tales for the Sugar Cat
Poaching, an Addergoole story set before the serial, is available in Other Sides

Lady Alouetta’s Garden

The Lady Alouetta subsetting explores a high-class bordello, Lady Alouetta’s Garden, its proprietress, the Lady herself, and the Flowers who belong to the Lady and work for her. Human and faerie trafficking feature strongly in this setting, but the main theme is one of perseverance and survival.

Stories include:
Walled Flowers
Slipping the Trellis

Learning Curves
In Her Song

Slideshow, just before the apoc.
Denial, a story of the apocalypse
Through the Snow, also during the apoc

Keeping the Gods
Two by Two, a story of survival
Being Alone, a prequel to Two by Two
Through the Woods and Learning to Live, a 2-part story of faeapoc through human eyes - Available in Tales for the Sugar Cat

Little White Horses, when the fight is bigger than human or fae - Meek's sketch reminds me of this piece

Inventrix has written a series of stories set in this verse, as well
