The Tempered Fables consists of unserialised short story fiction, so you can join in whenever you want. Our narrator, N.T. Cloever, sits by the fire and tells you a story!

The stories range from comedy to horror, fantasy to slice of life: its only goal is to give you something to think about, a wisdom to share, and more.

Origin Story

Years ago, I wrote a short story to submit it to a competition.

I got scared, and decided not to apply. I regretted doing that.

To make up for it, I imagined those moments when a reader is narrating stories in a room, and all the kids would huddle up by him as he voices out the characters.

Using that as a base, the first episode of Tempered Fables was born. Years later and it's still going active!

I hope you enjoy these stories and characters, I love them with all of my heart.
