Welcome to my webzone. The name’s Crosstown Gate; I write stuff. Pardon the dust, this site is still a work in progress. Here is a list of my projects:

A rabbit on a pilgrimage; short stories and parables on the nature of violence and the search for wisdom.

A novella about a dark Knight, a beautiful Princess and the understanding between them.

Oneshots and other miscellaneous works. Also some poetry!
(Updates ????)
