Outfoxed

Outfoxed is a shared universe containing stories written by Darinost and myself. Expect to see recurring characters, heavy degradation, heroics, redemption, and happy endings. Some stories were primarily written by Darinost, somewhere primarily written by me, both of us had a hand in all of them and neither of us are interested in sorting out who did what.

This story takes place in the modern day, in a world that could be ours, and focus heavily on kitsune.
