Strokes Stories

Strokes logo in neon

Different strokes for different folks.

This is a series of several original character series set around a gay nightclub called 'Strokes.' It started as a simple story titled "Escape" which spawned a sequel it took a year or two for me to finish. Then many more characters and sequels were born from those, forming this ongoing series. The stories containing sneezing are listed below.
