Hi and welcome to Lloyd's Favorites page! The stories I've placed here are ones that I personally enjoy and I hope you do too!

You may notice that most of the stories here have the 'short' tag on them; this has to do with my attention span as I tend to be extremely critical of longer pieces. Also, unless I am positive that a story falls into a specific category, it won't have an icon; for example, simply having an unexplained transformation won't earn a In the modern magic genre label.
