Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, we have fought our way here, to Shousetsu Bang*Bang Issue 85 — not to take back anything, but to give a magical box full of sexy queer fantasies, fairy tales, folklore, and other good things that start with F.

To help keep our will strong and our kingdom great, please leave comments on the pieces you liked and spread the word on social media!

(For summaries, authors’ notes, and more, we would usually tell you to see this issue’s entry on the Shousetsu Bang*Bang wiki. However, getting it back up and running is proving to be an absolute nightmare, so your continued patience is appreciated.)
