The following tales are told by Rogue and transcribed here for the benefit of the reader. They are not to be distributed or reposted to any other medium without Rogue's express permission. To do so would be to incur Rogue's anger, which constitutes "Risking a Catastrophe," which is a Federal offense.
For the benefit of our readers with sensitive dispositions (although we wonder why such people would be looking at Rogue's page in the first place), we have added alphabetical tags to each story to warn of any content that may cause distress:
Rogue likes to get feedback on his stories, too. It makes him happy. We like to keep him happy. Please feel free to send any comments to rogue.megawolf-at-gmail.com and we will be certain he gets them.
<SNAFU. Every now and then Rogue happens across someone who fires his imagination. Such was the case with his friend Snafu (currently on FurAffinity as Snafukurikai, a vulpine soldier who is a bit more than your run-of-the-mill grunt. He's a groundpounder in every sense of the word. Rogue became fascinated with the origin of this fox-in-uniform and, when Snafu admitted he wasn't entirely sure of it himself (bit of amnesia, perhaps), Rogue decided to make one up for him. Now with illustrations by Snafu himself! V-G-N
September. Bullying is still a serious problem in Japanese schools, much moreso than in the West. Young Ichirou suffers terribly at the hands of his classmates.
