Creator’s Spotlight: 6 Recent Works Created in April by Duck Prints Press Contributors!

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…


Waiting Between Worlds by Era JM Couts

fiction || naruto || f/f, m/m, f/m || haruno sakura/yamanaka ino, uchiha sasuke/uzumaki naruto, hyuuga neji/nara shikamaru || explicit || no major warnings apply || 1,896 || work in progress

summary: The war was over but there was no sudden happiness. Their problems didn’t disappear, their trauma didn’t disappear, and the political landmine of the post-war relations didn’t suddenly solve itself. In a perverse, twisted way, the post-war was harder than the war itself.

Anbu offered an exit. A broken, temporary solution. A way to erase the emotional pain.

Ten years later, they’re deeply entwined in the reality of life politics and the hard choices of a grey world.

But Sakura has a goal, Hinata has a plan, Ino has a mission.

And they’re done waiting.

Rules Were Made to Be Twistificated by firefly124

fiction || mcyt, traffic life series, double life smp, hermitcraft smp, empires smp || m/m || jimmy solidarity/tango tek || teen & up || no major warnings apply || 2,190 || ongoing series

summary: His communicator vibrated. Jimmy looked at it and was surprised to see it was a message from Grian and not an inquiry about when the coffee shop would be handling custom orders again. It wasn’t even his eight-millionth request for tea. That would’ve just been funny. Instead, it was pretty ominous.

“Meet me at the entity. We need to talk.”

other tags: mention of past Jimmy/Scott, blaze hybrid Tango, avian Jimmy, watcher-listener lore
