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.


<tr> <th colspan="5" style="background:#ddd; font-size:125%; text-align:left; padding:2px;">My Favorites</th> </tr> <tr> <th colspan="5" style="background:#eee; font-size:115%; text-align:left; padding:2px; padding-left:20px;">Anthro</th> </tr> <tr> <td align="center">A paticular favorite of mine.</td> <th>True Reflection</th> <td style="white-space:nowrap; font-size:smaller;">by Martin Divo</td> <td style="padding-left:5px;">Anthro dog TF, but the story focuses more on the psychology involved as a woman is slowly turned into a loyal servant by her captor. Think furry Stockholme Syndrome but creepier.</td> <td align="center">Horror</td> </tr> <tr> <td align="center">Under 15 kilobytes long</td> <th>Silver Fox Tracks</th> <td style="white-space:nowrap; font-size:smaller;">by Jetfire</td> <td style="padding-left:5px;">Part of the Paradise saga.
