Out With the Bathwater
Pretty Much Just A Novel, but on the INTERNET. And maybe with pictures sometimes.

Valyn cleans clothes. Valyn cleans people. Valyn cleans curses out of clothes and off of people. It's simple, satisfying work.

Until one day, when she wipes away a particularly nasty curse and the man beneath it shrivels to nothing.
