Our monthly “created works round-ups” are Duck Prints Press’s opportunity to spotlight some of the amazing work that people working with us have done that ISN’T linked to their work with Duck Prints Press. We include fanworks, outside publications, and anything else that creators feel like sharing with y’all! Inclusion is voluntary and includes anything that they decided “hey, I want to put this on the created work’s round-up!”
Check out what they’ve shared with us this month…

Home is Where the Hearts Are (Shared or Otherwise) by firefly124
fiction || mcyt, hermitcraft smp, double life smp || m/m, poly (one gender: male) || tango/jimmy, tango/impulse/zedaph || general audiences || no major warnings apply || 1,263 || complete
summary: Tango was happy to be home on Hermitcraft after Double Life, even though he already missed Jimmy. Adding a new relationship to this already-complicated family, across servers no less, seems like it’s going to be like wiring up some seriously wonky redstone. Good thing Impulse and Zedaph have a knack for that sort of thing.
